Nigerian Paralympican Heroes!

Though I don't like putting my country in the bad limelight, am not going to apologize for doing so today.
Am so disappointed with our government right now!! They couldn't even give our Paralympian Heroes a befitting welcome home!!!

I wanted to go welcome them,o! REALLY!!! But wasn't sure when they were coming back!!! Infact, SHAME to the Nigerian Government!!! They couldn't even give these wonderful people the honors by welcoming them home!! Am so BURNT!!!!!!!!!!!!! This just interprets Luke 4:24 which says "And He said, Truly I say to you, no prophet (hero) is welcome in his hometown."

Our Paralympian Heroes

"Nigeria finished in 22nd position out of 75 countries with a total of thirteen (13) medals comprising of six (6) gold, five (5) silver and two (2) bronze medals. Nigeria was the 3rd Best African country in the London 2012 Paralympic Games"

I read that Team Nigeria London 2012 Paralympic Games medalists were rewarded with cash donations in London for their outstanding performance and lifting the image of the country high during the games. The gold medalist category received cash reward of $7,500; silver $5,000 and bronze $2,500.

Fine, they gave them cash! So what??? Let me paint a scenario. Imagine you came back to your home town after like many years and no one came to pick you from the airport, even though they knew when you were to arrive that day. Then you angrily hire a taxi home. You got home, your family members welcomed you, then gave you your favorite dish to eat without explaining why no one picked you from the airport. Tell me, how happy would you feel? Be honest! That's how I feel for these our heroes! *sigh*

NEWS FLASH: My President, Goodluck Jonathan, will host a special reception this Saturday, 15th September, 2012 for the Team Nigeria Special athletes of the just concluded London Paralympics and the Falconets for their brilliant performance for taking 4th place at the just concluded FIFA Women U-20 Championship in Japan. Good to hear that *straight face*

Come Rio de Janeiro 2016 am going to do my best to support the Team Nigeria Paralympians. They deserve all the respect and honor for how they made Nigeria proud.

Nigeria won more medals in the Power Lifting category. Our 'akpu' is really working. *shining my teeth* For those who don't know what 'akpu' is, it's our traditional food made out of cassava. We eat it with our traditional soup. People that eat 'akpu' alot are categorized as very strong people.
