Air Peace Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Allen Onyema, has promised to gift Super Eagles the sum of N50million if they win the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Onyema made this promise while addressing Super Eagles during halftime in their opening game against Egypt in Garoua, Cameroon, on Tuesday.
He stressed that the players shoulder the hopes and aspirations of over 200 million people and 350 ethnic nationalities, urging them to give their best and win the trophy.
He also pledged to give N10 million for every goal scored in the Eagles’ opening match against Egypt.
The Air peace boss, who was quoted in the statement, said: “We believe in what you can do; you have the strength as a team.
“Remember what I told you during the qualifying series. That it is not just an ordinary football match. You are carrying the hopes and aspirations of over 350 ethnic nationalities of our beautiful country.
“You’re playing for the unity of Nigeria. This is your time to play your part in cementing the unity of this nation, as Nigerians from North, South, East and West will celebrate in unison.
“Do us proud and when you come back with the cup, I’m going to give you 50 million naira.”
Onyema said, whenever super eagles are playing, Nigerians put aside their ethnic and religious sentiments and forge a united front in support of the team.
