Solomon-Dalung

Nigeria’s Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung has insisted that it was needless for the Nigerian team to participate in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers since it is obvious that they cannot win the tournament.

Dalung made the statement on Friday, November 19, 2016 during an interview with Voice Of America.

He noted that Nigeria should only participate in competitions like the African Nations Cup and the Commonwealth games which they are guaranteed of winning.

His words: “The cup that we can win is the African Cup of Nations.

“There is nothing again that will take us to another man’s balcony in the name of the World Cup. We already have the Commonwealth Games and the Olympics. For these, we can attend such meets.

“But I am opposed to the World Cup. We don’t agree to it. Conspiracy in the World Cup is too much.

“We are here suffering from hunger and we don’t have money for such things.

“There is the issue of bribery and favouritism, there is also the issue of corruption before you are even given the hosting rights.

“That is why, even if we try many times, once it gets into the politics of the game, we can never win.

“That was why this year, we had to tackle him (FIFA President, Ginani Infantino) and we said, ‘you , Infantino, if you win this election, you have to give us a position.

“If not, we shall not agree.’ And you see, by the grace of God, he even picked an African as his Secretary-General, that means one day, we shall get to really lick the honey, that also means he has started taking honey and rubbing on our lips,” he added.
