The billionaire owner of Geregu Power Plc, Femi Otedola, has made good his promise of $25,000 to the Super Eagles for their lone goal against Algeria in AFCON 2019 semi-final.
Although the lone goal was not enough to secure a place for the Eagles in the final of the competition, they, however, went ahead to beat Tunisia in the third-place game to win bronze.
Otedola fulfilled his promise on Tuesday when a delegation of the Super Eagles visited his office in Lagos.
He shared a photo of the visit on his verified Instagram page and captioned:
“Integrity is keeping your word. I redeemed my pledge of $25000 per goal to representatives of the Super Eagles today in my office.”
On the Super Eagles delegation to the billionaire’s office were Equipment Manager, Chidi Ngoka, Team Manager, Enebi Achor and Defender Kenneth Omeruo.
It may be recalled that billionaires Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola had both promised the Super Eagles a combined $75,000 for every goal scored in their remaining matches at the just-concluded Africa Cup of Nations.
While Dangote made a pledge of $50,000 to the team for every goal in their remaining two matches at the championship, Otedola promised $25,000 for every goal.
That was after the Eagles’ impressive performance against South Africa at the quarter-final of the competition.
