BIG SHAME: Nigerian Government No Show to Receive Winning Paralympics Team – “In Our Country, Nobody Regards us as Anybody”

What a big shame. Enough said.

“When the 29-man team arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) at about 2.30pm on Tuesday afternoon, there was no official of National Sports Commission on hand to receive them. . . Nigeria finished in 22nd position at the global showpiece with a total of 13 medals comprising 6 gold 5 silver and 2 bronze medals.”- Channels TV
