Billionaire businessman and philanthropist, Femi Otedola, has redeemed his $25,000 (N9 million) per goal pledge to the Super Eagles at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The oil baron handed his pledge to national team defender, Kenneth Omeruo, and other the national team backroom staff: Chidi Ngoka (Equipment Manager) and Enebi Achor (Team Manager), in Lagos.
“Integrity is keeping your word. I redeemed my pledge of $25000 per goal to representatives of the Super Eagles today in my office,” Otedola tweeted.
It can be recalled that Otedola pledged the sum of $25,000 for every goal, while business mogul, Aliko Dangote, also made a pledge of $50,000 to the team for every goal in the semifinal and the third place at the championship.
Otedola has recently been involved in a number of commendable interventions for ailing former Nigerian international players, including 1980 AFCON winning team captain, Christian Chukwuemeka Chukwu, and goalkeeper Peter Fregene.
