Quotes

"Like any human being I felt so bad, but when you find yourself in such a situation, there is little you can do than to leave everything in the hands of God.  I was so demoralised and thought it was the end of my athletics career and my life but for Chief Segun Odegbami that came to my aid, I had given up all hopes. But I thank God for him because I never knew him; he just came from the blue to rescue me and my career. Indeed, he was God sent. I was victimised by some Nigerian officials because I had no godfather to fight for my course. The urine samples that were taken were kept in the cupboard at the Federation of Nigeria (AFN) office for days before it was sent through courier to the World Anti-Doping Agency for test.  How can they convince me the samples were not tampered before it was sent abroad?" Chioma queried
"The transmission facilities are being beefed up to strengthen and make more reliable and stable the national grid to be able to wheel out more power,” Nebo said shortly after signing the MoU."
"But the doctor, a nice and conscientious professional suspected that Dr. Enemuo was either hiding something or was suffering from a strange ailment because he proved negative to malaria, fever and typhoid fever. To be sure of what he was doing, he spoke to other very experienced doctors about the strange case he was handling in his hospital."
"His Excellency, you know security is foremost on his mind; my principal has been working hard on security"
