Oshoala 'Agba Baller' has taken to her social network to sound out a strong message amid the Super Falcons issues with the NFF over unpaid bonuses.

Super Falcons of Nigeria striker Asisat Oshoala has taken to her social networks to send a strong message following her return to her club side Barcelona Femeni.

Pulse Sports reported that Oshoala returned to her Catalan club and was with the team when they travelled to Mexico for their pre-season tour.

However, the 28-year-old forward who is widely regarded as the best African female footballer of her generation recently took to social media to send a message.

Oshoala’s post comes amid growing tensions between the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Super Falcons of Nigeria team, following their impressive run at the just-concluded FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

However, Pulse Sports reported the NFF have insisted that the Falcons have been paid amid reports of unpaid bonuses and wages dating back to 2021.

An investigation into the the allegations of non-payment of the Super Falcons’ allowances has since been opened by the House of Representatives.

Before the team’s brave performance at the ninth FIFA Women’s World Cup, FIFAWWC, the national women’s team complained about non-payment of their allowances amongst other things.

Led by coach of the team, Randy Waldrum, the NFF was quizzed about the $960,000 given to Nigeria for making it to New Zealand and Australia.

As reported by Pulse Sports, Waldrum opened up a can of worms which led to a war of words between him and the NFF.

“I have a real close contact in the US that is very connected and on some of the boards at FIFA. This person told me, that in October, every country was given $960,000 from FIFA to prepare for the World Cup. Where is that money?” Waldrum queried back in June.

Waldrum’s comments led to reactions from the NFF and Nigerians, who were appalled by the actions of the NFF.

However, the football governing body has now defended itself, with claims that they don’t owe the players. 

According to a report by Premium Times, Gusau noted that the said money was meant for the preparation of the team for the World Cup, not allowances which they have also paid the team.

“All the 32 nations that qualified for the World Cup were given $960,000 each for preparation for the World Cup,” Gusau told the NASS Committee.

“In January, we organised a training tournament of four nations — Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica and Nigeria. Every team used FIFA preparation money. The team was camped in Mexico and they were there for 13 days. In March, they were in Turkey for another training camp.

“The money was not given for the welfare of players but for preparing the team,’ he added.

 “We paid them allowances as per the tournament they participated in. We cannot use the preparation money to pay outstanding of qualifier matches.

“If the auditors of FIFA should see it, they will query us for that. The money was specific. We cannot use the money for a qualifier that was played in 2019,” he said.

Meanwhile, following claims by Mr Gusau that the NFF has cleared allowances including that of coach Waldrum, the House committee has demanded that the Federation provide payment slips and evidence dating back to 2019.
