Solomon Dalung Says Nigeria “Would Never Win The World Cup”

Nigeria’s sports minister, Solomon Dalung has added to his growing catalog of jaw-dropping quotes after suggesting that the country is ‘too poor to win the World Cup’. Dalung, who is already unpopular with a lot of Nigerians was quoted by Vanguard newspaper as saying;

“That competition stinks of corruption That Nigeria is too poor to waste money on it and that Nigeria would never win the trophy”

“The cup that we can win is the African Cup of Nations. There is nothing again that will take us to another man’s balcony in the name of the World Cup. We already have the Commonwealth Games and the Olympics. For these, we can attend such meets. But I am opposed to the World Cup. We don’t agree to it. Conspiracy in the World Cup is too much,” 

Minister Dalung added: “That was why this year, we had to tackle him (FIFA President, Gianni Infantino) and we said, ‘you , Infantino, if you win this election, you have to give us a position. If not, we shall not agree.’ And you see , by the grace of God, he even picked an African as his Secretary-General. That means he has started taking honey and rubbing on our lips. That means that one day, we shall get to really lick the honey.”
