Which ticket did Tobi Amusan take to the World Athletics championship? Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket or Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Fulani or it’s my turn?
Like Tobi, the girl born in Ijebu Ode in 1997, who has made Nigerians proud and is bringing home N65 million, to support our GNP, I shed a tear for Nigeria and Nigerians. They have abandoned what should lift them up and held tight to things that keep them down perennially.
What are we doing about school sports, about early child education, about civic education, about agriculture, about industrialization, about refining our crude oil? If it’s not me, my tribe, my religion, my cult it’s nothing else.
Tobi went to school in Ijebu Ode where she discovered her talent. But she was developed by a university in the United States where they didn’t care about her ethnic or religious background.
Tobi, thanks for the tears that dropped from your eyes when Nigeria’s national anthem was playing. There are millions of Nigerians crying with you for a beloved country rendered bankrupt by a wicked political class.
We shall overcome.
