Kano Pillars have raised alarm that they are yet to receive the prize monies for winning this year’s Aiteo Cup as well as finishing runners-up in the NPFL.
Pillars spokesman Rilwanu Idris Malikawa said that several months after Pillars beat Niger Tornadoes to win a first-ever Aiteo Cup, the club are yet to receive the 25 million Naira prize money.
“We have not received the prize money and we have no information on when the NFF will pay this money,” Malikawa disclosed.
“We hope we can get this money soon.”
The Pillars spokesman said the same is the case with the prize money due to the club for emerging runners-up in the NPFL behind champions Enyimba last season.
Three years ago the League Management Company (LMC) paid the NPFL champions 40 million Naira.
“We hope we can get this money before the new NPFL season kicks off,” he tasked.
