Skating Federation Showers Naira Rain On Skaters

Written By: SD Reporter


Nigeria’s stars to the 2017 African Skating Championship in Lome, Togo, have received financial rewards from president of Nigeria Roller Sports and Skating Federation, Comrade Joseph Evah.

A total of 21 skaters represented Team Nigeria at the championship, where they won six medals made up of one silver and five bronze.

Before their departure for Togo, Comrade Evah, a frontline Niger-Delta activist, had promised to reward each gold winner with N200, 000, silver medal N150, 000 and bronze N100, 000.

At the reception for the athletes and their officials in Lagos at the weekend, Evah doled out over N900,000 cash to the victorious team, with Samuel Iganga smiling home with N150,000 for his silver winning effort.
