I love sports…even if I am not great at any myself. I love sports in the Nigerian context because it is the closest to a meritocracy most of us will get to experience living in Nigeria. I woke up on Sunday morning to the Nigerian papers and as usual our leaders never fail to disappoint you…The Guardian reported that “The President, Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua has handed a ‘presidential order’ to players and officials of the Super Eagles to go all out and secure victory against Tunisia in today’s 2010 World Cup qualifier in Abuja.” To the President, victory in today’s game is non-negotiable.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has…Margaret Mead
