Speaking further with Tribunesport Sunday Akinwunmi retreated that the five hundred thousand dollars given to the federation by the world football governing body, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) is not a Covid 19 palliative in the sense insinuated by some Nigerian sports enthusiasts adding that the money is meant for the running of football in the country.
“A lot of people believe the $500,000 we recently got from FIFA is Covid-19 palliative. Actually it is the annual fund due to Nigeria. And it is meant for the running of Nigeria football. It’s not to be shared by stakeholders”, Barrister Akinwunmi explained.
