Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung , has again reassured Nigerians that the efforts of the athletes competing at the ongoing Rio Olympic Games will not be in vain as, “we will not leave Rio without winning medals’.

Tony Ubani, Press Officer, Team Nigeria, quoted the minister as saying shortly after Union Bank Nigeria PLC redeemed its N30million pledge to support the team.
Although, Nigeria’s name was yet to be on the medal table, Dalung said that he was optimistic that Team Nigeria would still win medals.
According to him, the minister commended the bank for the support.
“We’re grateful for your donation and we promise to ensure a transparent management of the fund, for you to do more.”
Ubani said that Yinka Kadejoh, the Events and Sports Officer of the bank presented ATM cards loaded with N250,000 to each of the athletes .
He said that they could use the cards anywhere in the world.
The  News Agency of Nigeria  (NAN) reports that the ceremony took place at the secretariat of Team Nigeria in Rio.
