The Minister of Youths and Sports, Solomon Dalung, has tendered a N3 billion budget to the Presidency for a successful outing of the Super Eagles at the 2018 World Cup 2018 in Russia.
Dalung disclosed this after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja, on Tuesday.

Dalung said while sponsors and partners would raise part of the money, the substantial part of the “conservative budget” would be provided by the Federal Government.

“We have a conservative budget of about N3 billion but out of that N3 billion, FIFA is going to raise about N900 million,” the minister said.

He, however, said measures are being put in place to ensure that the players get their allowances upfront latest by March 2018.
