He hasn't been my nightmare and he cannot be. We went down this time from the last edition 40-36 medals. Buhari. No maximum support from the government. I trust Abacha, he do everything to use sports to promote his image.

Congrats to them but the gap between them and first is mindblowing.

Australia hosted the game now and also participated in all competitions. How many competition did Nigeria participated in.

. Another slowpoke here. Bad belle and frustrated fellow thesame people that are always pained at anybody's progress. Who is a mediocre here? It is ungrateful, frustrated, myopic and unsatisfied gluttons like you. What will you say about countries that absconded during the games and countries that do not win any medal? This was how educated illiterate like you voted out a phd holder and replaced him with a man that has been looking for his primary school certificate yet you claim that be one of the most educated people in the world.......part well
