Nigeria’s Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung
Nigeria’s Minister for Sports, Solomon Dalung, is currently trending on social media, after he called the USA, ‘The United States of Nigeria’ on live television.
While addressing the situation of the U-23 players stranded in Atlanta, the minister said; “Our U-23 team suffering in the United States of Nigeria, What are there for? Because they are U-23 and they went to US and they are having problems, does that become our business?”, prompting the deluge of mocking comments.
As we all expected, the blunder has set the social media on fire as the minister has set his Twitter account to private after heavy bashing from Nigerians.
