Sports Ministry Refunds Mikel $4,600 He Paid As Hotel Bills

By Ikenga Chronicles August 15, 2016

It appears there is no end to the lies that keep coming from the Minister of Sports Solomon Dalung.  When news broke that hotel management in São Paulo had stopped the  Under 23 team from leaving the hotel, to Salvador for their next game, and team captain, Mikel John Obi had paid the bills to avoid embarrassment, Dalung had categorically denied that, and stated that the bill was added to the bill of the Ministry of sports.

Latest information shows that to be a lie. According to the Nigeria Football Federation website, the money was paid by Mikel, and refunded to him later by the Ministry. Information from the NFF’s website reads;

“Meanwhile, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has refunded to Captain Mikel Obi the $4,600 he paid for the team in São Paulo on their way to Salvador.”
