Jonathan – Awards cash gifts to Chan Eagles

President Goodluck Jonathan, on Thursday handed cash gifts to the home-based Super Eagles, who picked up a bronze medal at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa.

The Presidency handed out a total of N31million, in a reception organised in their honour at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Abuja.

The players received N1million each, where coach Stephen Keshi got N1.5million. His four assistant coaches also received N1million each, while other members of the backroom staff were rewarded with N500,000.

“As a sign of our appreciation we have decided to give you very little token because ‘Thank You’ does not go to the market,” the President told the team.

“We feel like welcoming you in a golden way even though you got bronze because of your outstanding performance in the march against Morocco. Although you did not get gold, you got the hearts of Nigerians.

“Your achievements speak volume. You may not have won the championship but you performed gallantly.”
