After the Super Eagles qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Senator Samuel Anyanwu who represents Imo East Senatorial district, suggested that loots recovered by the government should be used to fund the team.
Anyanwu has made the suggestion in the Senate on Tuesday, saying: “Mr. President, distinguished colleagues, Nigeria has always been qualifying, but paucity of funds has always been an issue despite wonderful performances like these.
“I want to suggest that stolen funds recoverd by the federal government scattered here and there should be used to fund the Super Eagles.”
Meanwhile, Senate President, after taking the leave of Chambers, maintained that Nigeria Sports ministry should release funds on time for early preparation of Super Eagles.
He commended Supper Eagles for their high level of patriotism.
