First of all, they were stranded at Rio and when they finally made it, they had financial issues with the hotel they stayed in, which finally led to some members of the team being sent away. They almost boycotted the game with Germany due to the entire drama but finally made their way to the game.

#Rio2016: Solomon Dalung Says NFF Lied About Chartering A Plane For The Dream Team Cos They Wanted To Commit Fraud

dalung

Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung is in the middle of yet another controversy!

The minister has been put on major blast for the shoddy preparations of Team Nigeria at the ongoing Olympics. A quick recap of some of the drama our athletes and officials have been through:

The Dream Team got stranded in Atlanta on their way to Rio, cos the ministry hasn’t paid for their tickets.

Some athletes and officials almost got detained after the ministry defaulted on paying their hotel bills.

Athletes started go fund me, alleging that sports ministry asked them to find their own way to Rio.

Dalung has pretty much received 100% of the blame and now he’s come forward to wag that the NFF lied about chartering a plane that was supposed to take the Dream Team to Rio.

In a television interview with Channels, he stated that the NFF tried to rip the country off by claiming to charter a private plane, which they never did.
