ELEGANT Table Tennis star, Funke Oshonaike would lead out Team Nigeria at the Opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics, at the Maracana stadium on Friday, August 5. The graceful and stylish ping ponger who would be competing in her sixth Olympics is also the assistant Team captain to Mikel Obi who at the weekend was also named captain of the Football team, thereby making him a double captain to the Games. Funke Oshonaike, no doubt, would treasure to be the flag bearer as marching with her fellow athletes in an opening ceremony is considered by many athletes as the pinnacle of their Olympic journey. Table Tennis, is indeed, honoured with yet another player, Segun Toriola whose incredible willpower and perseverance sees him as the Nigerian with seven appearances at the Olympics. The Opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics would also see an athlete take the Olympic Oath during the Opening Ceremony, ‘’In the name of all the competitors’’.

    No wonder Amaechi Rotimi is ranting against election date shift. APC members please tell me, is manipulating INEC to swindle vote to your side and trying to denied some people of their right to vote not corruption? is calling heaven to fall if the poll dates are shift in order to allow every Nigerian to vote not corruption? I will be very grateful if those talking about corruption can try and read the meaning from dictionary to guide them properly.
