RIO Olympic”Nigeria Dream Team”No support From the federal Government.

The Nigeria dream team who are currently preparing for Rio Olympic game, said even if they don’t get the support that they want, despite what came out from mouth of the sport minister,person of Solomon dalung, we dont have to be discourage rather strive hard to prove him wrong.Siasia-Dalung Siasia-Dalung Siasia-Dalung The coach Samson Siasia-led team are in Atlanta preparing for the Games with a private sponsor shouldering their bills for only ten days that will run out next week.How can these be possible,whereby the minister of sport says he is not aware that our Nigeria dream team has travel to Atlanta for the Rio game,Despite the fact that the Nigeria government did not give their support there was no need for fear cause the Nigeria team are just doing well by themselves. Dalung was reported to have said that he was not aware that the Nigerian team was in Atlanta. Despite the comment that was made by the sport minister concerning the players and the officials,they promise to put up their very best to let the world know they can do with or without support by the federal government.” Two of them said “We will be in Rio to compete for Nigeria and we will not be discouraged by what is going on.” Siasia, afraid that Nigerian authorities might disappoint them and scuttle their preparation had gone ahead to seek other sponsors who could pay their bills in the later part of their camping. Their pitiful condition compelled him to shoulder other roles other than coaching the team only. “The minister said that he was not aware of our camping here in Atlanta, if he is not aware that simply means he must slept off his duties. one of the team officials said during the week, confirming media reports in Nigeria that the minister said that he was not aware of the preparation camp of the Olympic soccer team. A top football source said the Nigeria Football Federation submitted their Olympic Games preparation program about two months ago and that even one top member of the sports ministry “made a case for the inclusion of one person in the team.” I will try my possible best to seek for sponsor to make sure hangout here to complete our training section so we can be almost prepare for the game,says samson siasia. “We are also exploring the possibility of sending them some money if we succeed in sourcing it,” one football federation official said last night. The cash crunch in the country following the poor state of the economy has subjected athletes to severe hardship and made preparation for the Olympics Nigeria’s worse in recent years. “We have never had it so bad,” veteran athletics coach Seigha Porbeni said yesterday. Lawmakers early this week asked the Federal Government to release money  for the Nigeria dream team towards the   Olympic preparation. The Games begin next month and such last minute release of funds has never helped Nigeria as the funds usually end up in the pockets of sports officials as their use for preparation program would have been late. Part of the money could help in rescuing teams in camps like the soccer Nigeria dream  team in Atlanta and the Basketball team in Los Angeles but late release of funds has never yielded results in terms of fair performance. The immediate past government has not being be doing much regarding entertainment and sport in this country, we were expecting change in this new administration but it turns out to be worst so far in the history of sport.
