It was reported few weeks ago that the Association of Nigerian Prostitutes (ANP), the umbrella body of commercial s*x workers in the country vowed to declare one week free s*x should the Super Eagles of Nigeria return home with the African Cup of Nations trophy.
We also exclusively reported that the association sent over 113 members to South Africa to cheer the Eagles to victory in the final cracker against the Stallions of Burkina Faso, which Nigeria won by a lone goal.
It was gathered that shortly after the victory last Sunday, one of the ringleaders approached a top member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) who was in South Africa to watch the match about their promise.
“He chased me and asked me to go to hell,” the lady told our reporter on telephone.
When asked if the promise was just for the Eagles or the entire country, the visibly angry lady replied: “Either for the Eagles or the country, he doesn’t have any right to tell me to go to hell, we are human beings. We will send in our press statement shortly,” she added.
A statement made available to us on Sunday and signed by the General Secretary, Jessica Elvis reads in part.
“The Association of Nigerian Prostitutes (ANP) wishes to congratulate the Super Eagles and indeed the entire nation for the successful outing of our senior national team in the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations, South Africa 2013. We are happy just like every other Nigerian.
Shortly after the victory on Sunday, one of our leaders met a top member of the Glass House in South Africa and informed him of our planned ‘free booz’ for the Eagles when they return to the country, but he outrightly rejected our offer. He told us to ‘GO TO HELL and GET A LIFE’ that the Eagles played with passion and not because of our ‘stupid’ promise.
We want to register our disappointment over the way we were turned down after our full support for the national team.
We shall continue to offer our support even as they prepare to face the world next year in Brazil,” the statement added.
