Bayelsa United and Bayelsa Queens won last Season’s Federation’s Cup, emerging Champions of the competition against all odds and against all clubs plying thier trades in the NPFL. Speaking after the thier ouster from the competition, Timitimi lamented how his team is being owed thier prize money despite having a sponsor for the Federation’s Cup. “The truth is that we all need to put our hands on deck. It’s so unfortunate that the prize we won last season, up till now has not been paid. The money has not been paid. Very funny, and we want our football to grow? Twenty-five Million for Bayelsa United and Ten Million for the Queens. Altogether is thirty-five million.”
