Akwa Ibom State Government Ask Brazil Legend Pele To Refund Their $300k

The Akwa Ibom State Government have demanded that Brazil legend, Pele, payback their $300,000 appearance fee he was paid to show up at the opening of the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo two years ago.
pelePele was paid the amount, to grace the opening of the 30,000-capacity stadium, which was declared open by former president Goodluck Jonathan in November 2014 but failed to do so.

His reason, because there was a shift in dates for the opening of ‘The Nest of Champions’.
