Aiteo wishes to inform the general public that it remains committed to its sponsorship deal with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) effective, May 1, 2017.
We at AITEO wish to state emphatically that contrary to media reports, there is no ongoing review of this agreement with the NFF.
The multi-billion sponsorship deal was a management decision meticulously taken upon due consideration of its benefits to the development of football in Nigeria, tremendous social capital and unifying effect on every stratum of Nigeria endeavor.
The deal is effective for five years and we have no plans to renege on our decision.
We hereby assure our valued stakeholders and Nigerian public that all aspects of the NFF pact, which includes paying Nigeria national team coaches will continue to run without hitches for the agreed five-year term.
In line with best practice, we will review annually, to bring even more value to both parties and our stakeholders.
As the Official Naming Rights Sponsor of the NFF Federations Cup, now christened Aiteo Cup, Aiteo will continue its funding of the tournament – Nigeria’s longest running football tourney.
Executive Vice Chairman of the group, Mr. Benedict Peters was quoted as saying, “We will continue to underwrite the costs of organizing the competition from the round of 64 for the men and women’s finals.
This is at the heart of our group’s social capital investment vision of bequeathing a virile and excellent soccer culture and administration to Nigerians, which besides being Africa’s best, create economic opportunities and wealth for generations of Nigerians”.
The NFF has recorded significant improvements in its management and execution of its national team objectives within the short term of our relationship.
We look forward to an Aiteo powered football administration that would make positive history with its national teams.
Aiteo’s relationship with NFF is unfettered in any way, and the organization will continue to ensure that NFF gets the required financial support it needs to perform optimally. We will ensure that all stakeholders are kept abreast of any development in this regard.
