I Am Not The Problem! Sports Minister Reacts To Calls For His Sack

Solomon Dalung

Nigeria's Sports Minister Mr. Solomon Dalung has answered calls for his sack following the nation’s poor outing at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari on the outcome of the Olympics, Dalung said poor performance in Nigerian sports pre-dated his appointment.

“I am not the problem of Nigerian sports. Abysmal performance has been happening before me,” he said.

He then blamed Team Nigeria’s poor outing at the Olympics to late release of funds and inability to develop home-grown talents.

Dalung said it was time Nigeria returned to the grassroots and groom talents for future competitions.

He also faulted the scrapping of the Nigerian Sports Commission, saying the commission was necessary.
