Chief Allen Onyema, the chief executive officer of Air Peace, says he will give the Super Eagles N20 million if they beat Cape Verde in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying clash.
Onyeama’s pledge was announced in a video shared on social media page of the Super Eagles on Monday.
Air Peace recently sealed a contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to be the official carrier of the nation’s national teams.
The Gernot Rohr’s boys will take on the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde at the Estadio Municipal Aderito Sena on Tuesday.
They will, however, be without key players like Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Leon Balogun, Alex Iwobi, and others who play in England.
“If you win this match, I am going to give the team N20 million on arrival. I’ll bring the cash and hand it over,” Onyema said.
“This will serve as a stepping stone in unifying our Nation. Go there and die for the country.
“You won your first match resoundingly, and we expect that the one happening in Cape Verde in 24hours time will not be different.
“Gentlemen, why I came to the airport at this time of the day 2 am to address is because of this. You are not just going to play football. You’re going to carry on your young shoulders the aspirations and the hopes of a Nation. You must help us in restoring hope to this country.
“Nigeria is a great country with so much potentials to achieve. We are yet to get there. We may have our differences but we love ourselves.
“We knew some of our players have to leave after the match and they had to do well before leaving because they cannot go to Cape Verde.”
