President Muhammadu Buhari has rewarded members of the nation’s Under-16 Football Team that won the 1985 FIFA Championship when he was military Head of State with N2m each.

The President on Thursday announced the reward to the then U-16 players at a presidential reception organised for outstanding athletes/officials who did Nigeria proud in recent sports competitions at the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Some of the players include, Fatai Atere, Nduka Ugbade, Jonathan Akpoborie, Baldwin Bazuaye, Victor Igbinoba and late Kingsley Aikiobare among others.
A mild drama, however, ensued as Buhari in error announced rewards of N200m each for the players but was later corrected by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, saying the sum is N2m and not N200m.
