The Nigeria Paralympics 2016 record-setting athletes have returned to the country. They received a rousing welcome at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport Reception Ground as they returned home from Brazil.I hate to be a prophet of doom but this athlete will probably join our other great paralympians who had done the country proud but were quickly forgotten after the celebrations.
These athletes should be made national heroes for what they achieved at the 2016 Paralympics,sadly,things are not done like that in Nigeria.
We have read in disgust and seen what happened to our other athletes who were neglected and left to wallow in poverty and dejection after serving their fatherland.
How many medals did Nigeria win in 2016 Olympics with abled body athletes?One,a Bronze.Yet these athletes with all their challeneges and discouraement in Nigeria go away and win 8 Gold medals!
I really pray and hope that is not going to be the fate of these athletes.Things must change one day and i would really love it if this happened with these wonderfully talented men and women.Nigeria finished a respectable 16th on the Paralympics 2016 table.The best we have ever done in any
