Tokyo Olympics: Sports Ministry has bring in shame to Nigeria – Dalung

Solomon Dalung, Former Minister of Sports has said that the Sports Ministry has bring in shame to the country at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television, Dalung mention that Sunday Dare who replaced him as the sports minister in 2019, lacks the “patriotic political will to consolidate on the gains on the ground” hence the reason for Team Nigeria’s numerous disappointments in Tokyo.

He also criticize Dare’s dissolution of the boards of federations less than three months to the 2020 Olympic Games.

Dalung mention;

“I think the dissolution of boards. It is a lack of patriotic political will to consolidate on the gains on the ground.

“When I was the minister, I continued from where my predecessor ended. When we get to the field, we built on previous successes and Nigeria did very well.

“Dissolving federations three months to Olympics is an indication that we are not prepared for Olympics. No general dissolves his troops on the eve of an attack and expect to win a war. The dissolved boards have trained and catered for the he athletes for more than two years. Crises are part of human existence, the management is what determines the quality of leadership. I inherited many crises, but I resolved them.

“Leadership is about taking responsibilities. When things go wrong, somebody has to be responsible. The entire drama of shame is avoidable. This is a shame that the country has found itself.”
