It hurts to see that our teams lack the necessary support to prepare them for the Olympics. I am sure we only went there to answer present and not perform at all. See when this opportunist are coming in with their support?

Failed Ministry of Sports.

Most ministries in Nigeria are just means of wasting collective resources because of their unproductivity.
