Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, called the United States of America, “United States of Nigeria” while addressing the U-23 footballers who got stranded in Atlanta, US.
He said, “Our U-23 team suffering in the United States of Nigeria, What are there for? Because they are U-23 and they went to US and they are having problems, does that become our business? “
