A Nigerian man has made headline by choosing a cash reward of N200k over the possibility of his country’s football squad, Super Eagle, securing victory in the AFCON final match against Ivory Coast.
In a video circulating online, the man was asked whether he preferred winning N200k or seeing Nigeria emerge victorious in the AFCON cup. His response was swift, causing stirs online.
He stressed the importance of the money, saying it would greatly help him. He also mentioned that Nigeria winning wouldn’t benefit him, but winning the substantial amount would be very beneficial.
In his words, “I prefer that ₦200,000, than Nigeria to win the cup. Because if Nigeria wins the cup, there’s no benefit for me.”
“Hunger is killing me, look at what I’m eating. Just look, no meat inside, I just borrowed this thing I don’t know whether I’ll pay it today. I prefer the ₦200,000.”
