Why some players yet to receive CBN tennis payment- Musa

The Tournament Director of the just concluded Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Senior Tennis Championship in Abuja, Saidu Musa, has said only players who failed to submit complete bank details are yet to receive their prize money.

He said over 90 percent of the players have received their prize money.

Musa, however, said those without account numbers would be paid in cash.

“Those making the payments uploaded the account numbers the players provided but the money did not go. It bounced back because of wrong account numbers. They will have to re-upload.

“They are making efforts now to make the final payment. Those with students’ accounts can’t be paid but will be paid in cash. Surely, everything will be sorted out.

“I believe subsequent tournaments will not have the same issue. The president of the Tennis Federation is not happy over this issue. He is sympathising with the players. I have to come back to Abuja to sort out this situation.

“This situation will not affect CBN sponsorship. We are already working on it and such won’t happen again.”

Meanwhile, some of the players have hailed the tournament sponsors for their commitment to the development of the tennis game in Nigeria.

They said they can’t wait for the next edition in 2023.

The 2022 edition had a total of 64 male and 32 female players who competed at the 10-day championship held at the tennis complex of the MKO Abiola national stadium in Abuja.
