So the Olympics Rio 2016 has started in earnest and the opening ceremony was beautiful as usual. The athletes all represented their respective countries for the opening parade in really colourful attires.
But when it was Nigeria’s turn to come out for their parade, they came out in, wait for it… track suits! Just look at this!
Nigerians, who are leading and winning in the Aso Ebi game, could not come up with something fabulous for an international event?
What really happened to cause this international ‘falling of hand’?
Are they not excited to be there? Or is it because they had to raise money themselves to go to Rio? Or is it because rice is now expensive? Or because the Minister for Sports said that ‘who send them go there’?
We don’t know the reason for this international disappointment, all we know is that they should not do it again. End of story!
By the way, thank God allowances have been paid to the athletes. We are rooting for you all. Go #TeamNigeria!
