Colour Riots In Team Nigeria Camp

Despite the huge fund approved for Team Nigeria’s participation at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, there are shocking revelations that the athletes are competing in various jerseys.
The disturbing kitting dimension in Glasgow is replicated across most of the African teams even amongst the powerhouse Nigeria.
The kits too have been getting to Glasgow in bits. Their diligent sports government officials committed all their time, money, focus and effort in ensuring team the Super Eagles soars high in Brazil justifiably so they forgot to order the kit for games they were biding to host eight years ago…Abuja lost the bid to host the 2014 games to Glasgow.
The kits were ordered just weeks to the games, could be days before… So some athletes are competing in the official team Nigeria kits Adidas while their compatriots are in Nike.
Some weightlifters wore the recognisable green and white kits while some were in some strange blue, red others were in some black and luminous green….
What matters is the kit isnt it? like the Nike Blessing Okagbare wore in her dash for the gold…no one is to blame its Africanism the obnoxious way of thinking.
It is where athletes are granted the hankered entry to events if they can pay their tickets to the championships….it beats the logic why these dual nationals would forsake their motherlands…the land of opportunities that doesn’t yield anything!
