Mikel Obi paid $4,000 to save Dream Team VI from embarrassment in Brazil hotel

It has been revealed that Mikel John Obi, had to part with $4,000 of his personal money, to ensure that the Nigeria Olympic team did not miss their flight to Salvador.



Players and officials of the Dream Team VI, were held to ransom in Sao Paulo, over unpaid bills incurred by additional officals.
Organizers of the Games, insisted on a team of 25 players – 18 players and seven officials.

A source confirms that it was the responsibility of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to offset the bills of the extra five officials.

“We just arrived Salvador now from Sao Paolo. We nearly missed our flight because of unpaid bills in the hotel. The hotel held us to ransom,” a team official told AfricanFootball.com
“The problem is that all the additional officials here in Brazil are the responsibility of the Nigeria Football Federation, who said they will pay for them, but they did not pay for them again.
“The affected officials included the team’s media officer, the team coordinator, the kits manager in charge of players and officials’ kits and the accompanying assistant director technical.

“A call was put across to the honourable minister of youths and sports, he said we should put the bill in the (credit) card but the card didn’t work. They tried and tried but the minister said that only 18 players and seven officials should be captured as regards payment according to the rules of the Olympic Games.
“So, the hotel bills of these other officials, about five of them cost the sum of over $4,000. 

They held us hostage for more than one hour and we nearly missed our flight. It was Mikel (Obi) who rescued us by paying the money.

“I can tell you honestly speaking that this incident is not the fault of the minister because the minister listed the people to be accommodated which were 18 players and seven officials.

  6. What kind of arrangement is this?
    This is getting embarrassing by the day and these Boys do not need it.

    So right now Sports is no longer important in Nigeria?

    Even if they are working with a tight budget,they need to organise themselves better please!

    I understand that sometimes some officials try to add extra people or syphon money from the trip but the Minister should be on top of his Job abeg.

    This is his season,this Olympics should be his Day job for now.

    For some,you might think...Who Sports Epp?
    Well,i cannot begin to list out the advantages of Nigeria being in the forefront in Sports...it puts a nation in a good light in the world. It puts us on the Map.
    Attracts investors,gives the world the impression that we are not an area ravaged by terrorists...possibly attract investors,sports lovers etc!

    As we fight against corruption and focus desperately on Oil,may we remember other areas that seem irrelevant but highly important.

    God Bless Mikel.

    1. That is the question that needs good answer. Even Tue president said anyone that has nothing doing shouldn't tag along but since the NFG feels they need to be there the chairman should have source for fund.

And look how long it took the Fulani man to pick his ministers,one would have thought he was selecting some of the heavenly host.
