Lagos - Nigerians have taken to social media to attack Sports Minister Solomon Dalung who they claimed made a blunder by referring to America as the United States of Nigeria.
Dalung, who was addressing newsmen on why the U-23 football team was yet to leave for Rio, Brazil, referred to the country as United States of Nigeria.
When he was asked to explain why the team was stranded in the US, the Minster said, “Our U-23 team is suffering in the United States of Nigeria.”
The statement did not go unnoticed as Nigerians have now vented their anger on the minister.
