The mothers of late Super Eagles greats, Rashidi Yekini and Samuel Okwaraji have been placed on a monthly stipend of N30,000 by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The move, the association said, is in furtherance to, and in appreciation of the Minister of Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare’s efforts at helping the mothers of the duo.
Atweet on the NFF official handle read, “In furtherance to, and in appreciation of, the recent pronouncement of the HM Sports to put the mothers of late ex-internationals Sam Okwaraji and Rashidi Yekini on a monthly stipend,”
“The NFF has decided to support this noble initiative with a further monthly stipend of N30k to each of the two matriarchs.”
The NFF also revealed that it will review the condition of surviving mothers of former internationals that died in active service and decide what to give them monthly.
“In addition,” the tweet further read, “the NFF will henceforth review the situation of surviving mothers of our ex-internationals that died in active service for the country and resolve what to do for them on monthly basis.”
