Rest In Peace Rashidi Yekini. Yekini remains the man with the highest number of international goals for Nigeria (37). Portugal is remembering him today but in his home country Nigeria, no celebration.

That's the Nigeria I know.

A country of many victims but few citizens.
A country where one is more likely to be killed by the police than by terrorists.

Has the government even fulfilled its promise to the victorious Super Eagles of 1994?

What about Sam Okwaraji?

Even the political elite do not believe in Nigeria. They are citizens of other countries, and those that are not ensure their children are born in other countries.

That's how much faith and hope they have in this country.

MUMUSSANCTUS! Jonathan and his SportsMinisters did absolutely nothing to honour the memory of late Samuel Okwaraji throughout their 6year reign of looting.

Also, what did Jonathan and his HealthMinister do to honour Dr Adadevoh for sacrificing her life to fight Ebola?

Much as i condemn the government neglect of our past heroes, these sportsmen and entertainers earn much money during their prime and when alive. They should invest wisely and build legacies that will outlive them. Not waiting for government bailout from their challenges after retirement, & monuments after death.

I remember the bicycle kick he did in France 98 in Nigeria vs Spain. I never knew, as big as he was, he could lift himself.
