Getting to a year after the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the tailor behind the Super Eagles traditional (asoebi) outfit to the tournament is yet to be paid in full.
The designer identified as, Gt Stitches, on Thursday accused the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) of failing to pay for the outfit, nearly eight months after the tournament ended.
The clothing brand’s CEO, Esimaje Awani, made the allegation in a post on GT Stitches’ Instagram page.
Awani, who did not say how much the deal was worth, accused NFF President Amaju Pinnick of avoiding him over the debt.
“My brother Amaju has stopped picking my calls cos (sic) of this money. Someone at the office told me court is my only option!! What a shame!!”
He said: “Please, let NFF come out and say their part! I have not been paid period. Some persons might not be patient as I was on the subject matter.”
Responding to a critic who criticised him for “coming out now to spill this”, Awani challenged the NFF to deny his claims.
