Why NFF cant pay Siasia N12m Salary advance

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has not been able to pay the new National Football team coach Samson Siasia a salary advance of 12 million naira (US$80,000) because the accounts of the federation remain frozen by the anti-graft Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). That has made it impossible for the federation to meet its financial obligations to the coach, who is on a salary of 5 million naira per month (US$33,000). ‘We don’t have the money to pay him yet because our accounts remain frozen,” the football website mtnfootball.com reported Sunday, quoting a top NFF board member.

‘We have discussed with him and have told him that as soon as we are in a position to do so, he will get his money.’ Under the agreement signed between the NFF and the coach two weeks ago, he was to be paid a salary advance of 12 million naira 1 Dec., which he will then refund at the rate of 1 million naira (US$6,700) per month, to be deducted directly from his salary.
