Other prominent athletes including sprint star, Blessing Okagbare and Basketball giant, Chimezie Metu have spoken out about the problems Nigerian athletes had during the Olympics as a result of the country’s apparent poor sport administrators.

 

Nigerian sports minister Sunday Dare has repeatedly refused to answer questions or give comments regarding the welfare of Nigerian athletes at the Olympics, with several athletes openly accusing him of abandoning them to binge at different Tokyo hotels.
