Olympics: Presidency to probe scandals rocking Team Nigeria

As scandals continue to rain on Team Nigeria like a deluge, the presidency, we gathered, has noted all the unpalatable events down and is expected to investigate them to fish out those responsible for the acts that have brought international embarrassment and shame to the country.

According to top sources in the Presidency, the embarrassing acts are being noted with the gathering of more information to be able to properly brief President Muhammadu Buhari about them and take actions to stem the tide and future occurrence.

One of the sources told Sports Vanguard that the case of the U-23 football team who were stranded in Atlanta and almost cost the team their opening match against Japan before they were rescued by Delta Airline “was a big embarrassment to Nigeria,” adding, “I am sure we have not heard the last of it.”
