    Hian….we are being beaten left, right and centre in all sports at this Olympics, crashing out in preliminary rounds, when 50 other countries are already on the medals table….LMAO…and one loud mouth clueless minister is telling us to hold someone (who is doing his job diligently and meeting the targets set for him) to the terms of his contract……LMAOooo.

    Oga SPORTS minister, to what terms should we hold you for this barrage of failures we are recording..? Badminton we are out, Rowing out, Taekwando out, Table Tennis (all 4) out, Gymnastics out, Football (male and female) didn’t qualify, Weightlifting same, Boxing we didnt even go for the qualification tournaments on 2 occasions, Volleyball non existent, Handball non existent, Netball – that one don get accident tey tey. Basketball thanks to foreign borns (who are less Nigerian to you and your boot lickers) we are still heads above waters with some hope….yet Mr minister carried himself to go and party and enjoy estacodes is Tokyo as if he is participating in any of the sports….LMAOooo….the same way he carried big belle to go training with the SE ahead of an important qualifier as it he was going to be the super sub on match day. How many other nation’s sports ministers are there in Tokyo at the moment. 3 weeks of joblessness and winning and dinning on taxpayers sweat.

    Weldone o Mr Grammarian….na hia you go come back come meets us. The only area where this guy is an upgrade to Dalung is in his spoken English, but I refuse to be deceived by it any longer. The beautiful thing about participating in the Olympics is that when you crash out, even if it is on the first day, you still get to stay in the games village and “enjoy the life of your head” till the closing day. So make all the athletes enjoy themselves biko, dem nor fit kill demsef for Nigeria.

      What Round did your Mr Diligent crash out at the world cup and what did he achieve at Afcon that we have never surpassed?Drey you are a mad man!!!

      • Dr. Drey 2 months ago

        Hahahaha…look at this son of a pig…? What WC round and AFCON stage did Mr Diligent’s employers set as target for him after your Guadiolas couldn’t qualify for AFON back to back….? LMAOooo. Was it not the same targets that Paul le Guen said was impossible for a team ranked 70th in the world…? Did he meet the targets…? LMAOOo. How come the impossible suddenly became bread and butter for you now…? Did any of your former coaches ever inherit a team that couldn’t qualify to AFCON back to back and was ranked 17th in Africa…? LMAOooo. If it is easy to reach AFCON semis on your first attempt after being ranked 17th in Africa go and tell Benin and Uganda to reach semifinals of the next AFCON and lose in the 96th minute to the eventual Champions na….LMAOooo

        You no kuku get sense, just like your tin-god. Useless bastard. You better tell your lord and saviour to remove his butts from Tokyo with immediate effect and go back to his office to go start the process of reviving SPORTS in the country and tell hiM to SHUT UP….HE TALKS TOO MUCH.

        Wretched fool.

      Mr. tread softly abeg….the Super eagles is no difference in the rots of the Nigerian Sports in total…the super eagles are far from convincing in the past few years….so easy with your praise singing. I can say that our football generally has taken a dip just like every other sports in recent years…and even your Rohr is not doing anything is his capacity as the National team coach to change that. Stop celebrating mediocrity….

      • Dr. Drey 2 months ago

        Thank God Rohr is even in charge, cos its no coincidence that as “dippy” as the form of the SE has been, its still the only shinning light in EVERY other aspect of our football. How he is managing to stir the ship despite the terrible environment is a miracle. We’ve never had a national team being owed for 2 years, yet no fights, no quarels, no dramas in the national team camp, and the players are still ready to play their hearts out and qualify for tournaments with TWO GAMES TO SPARE. We have not failed in anyway neither has he failed to meet any of the targets handed to him. As at the last FIFA rankings we are still ranked 3rd in Africa. So tell us what exactly is the so called dip….? Losing friendlies…? else tell what Rohr should have done for your football (which includes your u17, u20,u23, chan, female teams and representatives in CAF competitions) which has taken a dip….? LMAOoo.
        From whom much is given only should much be expected. He who comes to equity must come with clean hands. We also demand that the SPORTS minister be held to account for the barrage of failures in this Olympics.
