The Nigerian U-23 Olympic team camp has told Minister of Sports and Youth Development they don’t want to see him in their camp.
They insisted that they don’t want the Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, and his delegation anywhere near their dressing room before and during the match to avoid unnecessary distractions
“We are set for the semi final clash with Germany. We have perfected our game plan to qualify for the final and win the gold medal for Nigeria like our 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games colleagues”, said an unnamed player
Despite the apology from Solomon Dalung over the unwholesome manner his ministry treated the team during their training tour of Atlanta, USA, the player insisted that it was difficult for them to forget the scandalous scenario.
