Otedola redeems $25,000 vows to Super Eagles.

 Nigeria Businessman Femi Otedola has redeemed his $25,000 per goal vowed made to the Super Eagles at the 2019 Africa Cup of  Nations in Egypt.

The billionaire Femi Otedola had before the Eagles semi-final match against Algeria promised to pay $25,000 per goal scored against the North Africans.

Nigeria’s only goal was scored in the 76th minute by Odion Ighalo as the Eagles lost to the North Africans via a late RiyadMahrez’s free kick in added time of the encounter.

 Super Eagles’ defender Kenneth Omeruo led a delegation that consisted of team administrator Enebi Achor and equipment manager Chidi Ngoka to receive the pledge made on behalf of the team.
