The Nigerian contingent to the just concluded London Paralympic games on Tuesday [Sep 11] arrived the country to a very low profile reception.
When the 29-man team arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) at about 2.30pm on Tuesday afternoon, there was no official of National Sports Commission on hand to receive them.
Some of the athletes, who spoke with Channels Television’s correspondent, said the government should accord them similar respect, reward as their able counterparts.
The Secretary General of the Nigeria Paralympic committee, Frank Thorpe insisted that preparations for the next Olympics in Rio de Janeiro must begin in earnest.
Nigeria finished in 22nd position at the global showpiece with a total of 13 medals comprising 6 gold 5 silver and 2 bronze medals.

Our leaders are a bunch of fools, The able olympians who disappointed us were welcomed back home but paralympians who made us proud are being treated with disrespected,they even came back with 3 world records.  Shame on our leaders.

What a Shame shame shame! The Nigerian Govt are fools and need to wake up. This is a big disgrace. They shoulda atleast recieved some respect. These Paralympians won 13 medals and 3 world records and they still came home disrespected. Can you imagine? The Naija Govt sucks.
