This is in furtherance of the approval from Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, for the said amount to be paid. The mandate, which is a sum of N358m, was paid by Central bank of Nigeria on Thursday, a statement signed Kenechukwu N, on behalf of the Accountant General, said.
The payment came after members of Super Falcons demonstrated in Abuja demanding payment of their outstanding bonuses. Pres. Buhari later authorised the payment within 24 hours.
