Ogba also frowned at the U-23 football team for accepting cash donation from a Japanese philanthropist Dr Katsuya Takasu.

He said “I don’t think it was nice for our country to accept such money given the happenings around the world now.”

While our ministers sit in their mansions, they also begrudge the fringe benefit that fell on the under-paid and under-appreciated football team who gave Nigeria it’s only medal.
