Ndidi Nwosu, Gold Medalist At Rio 2016 Paralymics Is Dead

“Ndidi sustained an injury from the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. She was a heavyweight powerlifter.

“She had been off and on in the hospital and that was why she couldn’t take part in this last World Cup.

Ndidi Nwosu, a rare gem is gone! The Federal Government of Nigeria should have done more to take care of this lady after she got injured on national duty.

It appears as of Ndidi’s life went downhill after her surgery. In the link below, Queen Uboh, former President of the Nigeria Powerlifting Federation spoke of sending Ndidi money at some point for her to start petty trading. But Ndidi had to use the money for medicines to treat her injured spinal column instead.

This is a sad end. I hope the Federal Government starts being more caring to our athletes.

That is how they left Rashidi Yekini who scored Nigeria’s first ever soccer World Cup goal to rot to death. Why?
