Oct 16, 2016 – How Desmond Elliott Lobbied Osinbajo To Secure N100Million For Super Eagles To Fly To Zambia

Investigation has revealed how Nollywood actor cum politician Desmond Elliott lobbied Vice President Osinbajo to secure the release of 100million Naira for the Super Eagles to fly to Zambia for a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

We learnt that NFF President Amaju Pinnick out of desperation contacted Desmond Elliott who connected him with VP Osinbajo, who now directed an emergency memo to be put up and routed through the sports minister.

At the end, the Federal Government released 100 million to the Nigerian Football Federation for the World Cup qualifier.

    this is the corruption we are talking about, why would be he Desmond came up with such instructions or convincing the VP to release money for super eagles to travel to zambia for our match. or maybe he wants to show himself.

    So much money for football? Wouldn’t it be better to give 100 small business people N1 million to start or expand their ventures? Have some of us not gone mad?

      Apayor, thanks for your response. Is there anything we could to launch strong protest against this nonsense, please? I though Desmond Elliot had a bit of sense; he is an empty gourd. Please let us start a petition to the Vice President.
