NIGERIAN FOOTBALL REFLECTS NIGERIAN POLITICS.
If Muhammadu Buhari is the best President, Nigeria can offer,
Out of 180 million people with several brilliant minds,
Then, no wonder Nigeria cannot field 11 young men,
To annihilate and dispatch 11 young footballers,
From Croatia with a population of 4 million.
Nigeria will continue to be disgraced by minnows,
Until Nigerian Politics fixes Nigerian Football.
Nigerian Football reflects Nigerian Politics.
Nigeria has the materiel to win the World Cup,
But Nigerian politics is retarding Nigerian Football.
That the fish starts rotting from the head is also,
Applicable to football, electricity, healthcare, water, roads and schools.
Until Nigerian Politics is fixed, football will continue to suffer.
What else can explain the non-provision of public pitches,
In new modern capital of Abuja and elsewhere?
Politicians provide facilities for football and sports.
One thought on “NIGERIAN FOOTBALL REFLECTS NIGERIAN POLITICS.”
The good DOCTOR of African Behavior.
Poignant, as always.
