Tokyo 2020: Aruna Quadri Laments Ill-Treatment Of Team Nigeria Athletes

Nigerian tennis star, Quadri Aruna, has expressed displeasure with the ill-treatment of Treatment of Team Nigeria athletes at the ongoing Tokyo Olympic Games.

Aruna, who was knocked out from the tennis event earlier this week, made this know via his official Instagram handle on Friday.

He faulted the decision of the sports ministry to remove his coach that qualified him to the quarter-finals of the Rio Olympic Games.

“You all wanted me to perform well but you removed my coach that qualified me to quarterfinals at the Rio 2016 Olympics,’’ the 32-year-old who exited the Games in the third round, said.

“I dare you all to remove me (from the National team) because I said the truth.

“Athletes are being short paid, underpaid, and nobody should complain?

“If the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, don’t come and address the athletes, these officials will spoil all the good things you (Dare) have been doing’’.

Recall that two days ago, Nigerian queen of the track, Blessing Okagbare also expressed her displeasure at sports administrators for the negligence of duty.

    Every day I keep saying this, the faces of these irritating Nigeria sports officials as well as politicians deserves slaps from little children. They are all such disgusting bunch. I can’t stand seeing them with their timid ugly faces all over the place, decieving themselves that they are regarded. If I get the chance I will spit into their stenched faces.

    Could this be the beginning of a sports revolution in Nigeria?
    Another athlete complaining about maladministration. Athlete’s going unpaid or underpaid. Where is the money? What are they doing with the money?
    What is the rationale for removing a coach that is performing? So you don’t have to pay him, and then the money becomes available for sharing?
    So this nonsense did not start with Rohr? The salary Rohr is beig paid is highly offensive to them. They want to get rid of him so the money is freed up for estacode and other frivolities. Hmmm.
    And wazza dazzler continues to speak premium QUEEN’S ENGLISH. Top notch English. Oyibo repete.
    Surely, administrators need to start facing the consequences of their actions!
    My respect for Rohr has increased even more. To be working and meeting targets under such horrendous working conditions? The man should be commended indeed!
