President of the Nigeria Football Federation , Amaju Pinnick , says the federation is yet to receive COVID – 19 palliatives from world body FIFA and CAF .
Speaking in an interview with BBC , Pinnick said once the federation took delivery of the funds , external auditors , PricewaterhouseCoopers , would ensure they were properly distributed.
Newsmen had reported that FIFA approved $ 1 m as universal solidarity grant to all member associations , while an additional $ 500 , 000 was specifically assigned for women ’ s football.
CAF also released $ 300 ,000 as grant to mitigate challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic , while the NFF got $ 200 , 000 from sponsors Nike and Coca Cola .
“ We ’ve not received all the money , we ’ ve not received the one from CAF , we ’ ve not received from FIFA , once we receive , we are talking to PWC so that it ’ s not just distribution, they have to monitor how it is done , they have to monitor what we are doing to ensure it gets to the end users, ” Pinnick told BBC .
“ Once we get the money , we will notify the ministry, the only one we have right now is what we have been able to warehouse from Cocacola and Nike. You can see that it is $ 2 m – $ 1 .5 m from FIFA , $ 300 ,000 from CAF and $ 200 ,000 from the federation . We are going to religiously adhere to that principle . ”
