Nigerians kits for 2016 Olympic arrived on Wednesday three days to end Rio Olympic

Three days to the end of the 2016 Rio Olympics, Team
Nigeria took delivery of the much awaited kits after most
of the athletes had concluded their events with some
already back to their bases.
A top official of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria who
disclosed this to Sports Vanguard Thursday, said the kits
which arrived Wednesday night would no longer serve any
purpose because “most of the athletes have left after
concluding their events”.
He added that “I have never experienced this in my years
in sports. Money meant for the Games was held tightly by
ministry officials and they were just releasing money
piecemeal. We had to buy kits on our own while some
athletes competed in their personal kits.”
It would be recalled that Team Nigeria had to resort to
their warm-up track suits for the match past of the
Opening Ceremony as the sports ministry claimed the
official attire which was showcased before President
Muhammadu Buhari during the hand-over ceremony in
Abuja failed to arrive on time for the ceremony.
Nigerians who were alarmed by the embarrassing scenario
condemned the ministry for the untidy handling of the
athletes’ kits but the sports minister, Solomon Dalung, in
defence of the ministry, tweeted with a post that even the
South African contingent appeared at the Opening
Ceremony in their track suits.
