If I were to be the president like this I don fire the minister of sport first.

Before I go come petition fifa for not regarding the players.. After all they were quick to fine Nigeria when they demolish Abuja stadium after we drew with Ghana.

Then I strongly challenge the that country foreign affairs minister for such rubbish.

But u know in Nigeria here nobody does anything that why people behave anyhow they like. They see government jobs as a place where nothing can happen.

This is the real Koko of the news and should call for concern ...

So the NFF is just knowing this.
Well the citizens out of sentiment will all not agree that wrong is wrong, that poor management is poor management so those on authority will not be punished.

We are a nation that cannot sort ourselves out, cannot solve even rudimentary problems and so cannot progress in any meaningful way.

My faith in Nigeria is almost ended.

I smell lies from NFF. Very corrupt body. I wonder what they are doing with all the money they do receive from FG and FIFA. They do get money also from endorsement, advertisement and all of that.

I heard NFF gave each of the girls just 40k upon touching down in Nigeria to travel to their various destination. Very bad.

The NFF was not responsible for flight arrangements... it FIFA . OK.... fine. Why was FIFA not contacted about the development and to make alternative arrangements?... if not to get them on charter flight or some other connecting flight.... at least hotel accommodation. I smell lies. NFF knew they were going to be stranded for 24 hours ... and be herded into a pen bare room to pass the night... why didn't they then book a hotel? After making Nigeria proud is this the best the NFF can do for them?... nothing? Greed really has no boundaries.

Story for the gods. Have female US footballers ever slept at an airport? Have female German footballers ever slept at an airport? Have female Turkish footballers ever slept at an airport? All these excuses are just rants. We Africans and blacks keep clamoring for respect on the world stage, yet we all do our best to ridicule ourselves. No one can respect you more than yourself.

But today, what do we have: soldiers and police shooting at protesters, politicians stealing money like there's no tomorrow, footballers sleeping at airports? The people looking to disrespect us are seeing all this. And they will never treat us better than our own governments treat us -- though they will often deceive us to think they're treating us better.

And this is not a Nigerian thing, it is an African thing. This madness happens everywhere on the continent. I'm sure the little respect we Africans get is from the blacks in the US (the descendants of slaves and many early migrants there). If it wasn't for that, I'm sure no one would hide the fact that we are the doormat of other skin colors.



I guess you didn't read this or you just want to write for writing sake....



Nigeria had been removed from the list of countries whose citizens were issued visa-on-arrival in Turkey .



You're comparing Nigeria with countries that derr passport can fly to almost any country without Visa with Nigeria that if care is not taken sef Nigeria passport fit no enta ordinary Togo.....



What I believe would've rescue here is if our Government av try get dem a chartered flight buh I guess the Govt no wan spend shi shi cos dem don leave all the responsibility to FIFA nd no wan take responsibility for anything....

There must be something Or someone to blame for their incompetence. Imagine America U20 players sleeping at the airport because of that silly excuse

It can not happen to American U20 players, reason is their passport allows visa on arrival in almost all countries

Yes I understand that happened to our players is due to bad planning

There should be no reason for any representative of a country to be stranded, that's why there is always a management team that sees to their welfare. Reason I hate this APC and buhari govt, they are always fast to defend carelessly.. Why Nigeria? Why were other countries not stranded at the airport top of its fifa? Mtcheeeeew..
How long do they need to wait for the next flight?
Oyibo also sleep at the airport. The issue here now is that these ladies are representing a Country. The Nigerian Ambassador in Turkey should have intervened.

First to comment. grin E mean say today go sweet grin

Abeg , like for Peter obi, share for tinubu I Dey combine some data grin

Are you one of Bubu's lazy youths who are the social media supporters of Peter Obi?
Or what is the added value to society of your above comment?
No wonder the old men laugh at how easily they scam and con the youths, like Obi is doing with his pretentious sainthood in the manner that Thiefnuibu packaged Bubu seven years ago.

Colossusgist:
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that many Nigerian youths just want to sit down and do nothing, banking on the notion that Nigerian is an oil-rich nation.

Speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster on Wednesday, the president said a lot of Nigerian youths have not been to school and they want everything free.

See Speech Below

“About the economy, we have a very young population, our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. This is a very conservative one,” Buhari said.

“More than 60 percent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education free.”

The president said he has done well on the three cardinal points of his campaign, including economy and security.

“Recently, my minister for information was constrained to answer a question on people accusing this administration of doing nothing, he said ‘let Nigerians be reminded what position we were before May 2015, what condition we are now, and what we have achieved between then and now and I think people were impressed with the answer.

“For security, we have done quite well. Economy, we are doing very well, especially with agriculture; we are providing soft loans, and guarantee is that you have to belong to a certain locality and you have got land, you don’t have to go to the bank and need a physical collateral. I think a lot is being done.”

The president is expected to meet with business leaders and other heads of state as the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting progress through the week.

Is Nigeria the only country that's excluded from visa on arrival in a country? Is Nigeria the only country FIFA books flights for? Why has this not happened to any other country? You should ask questions and seek answers instead of listening to excuses that don't hold water.

Nigeria no longer has any dignity outside the continent, imagine Turkey no longer offer us visas on arrival,
who knows Turkey when Nigeria was Still blazing as a nation?
Where was Turkey when Nigeria had the first television station?
Who heard about Turkey when 1 Naira was almost 1 pound?
Now see where we've found ourselves.
Guy, at least consult the Internet first before you start disgracing yourself.
When turkey was world power, Lord Lugar is yet to come to Nigeria. At least start with the ottoman empire.

Turkey is a member of G-20. I'm sure you don't know it. In few yrs time will manufacture its own nukes.

Even Kenya, Tanzania south africa etc are ahead of Nigeria as far as development is concerned. Maybe, if you see some duplexes some places you call that development. Nigeria has nothing, absolutely nothing. And the worst is most of the citizens don't know that.
