Chairman of the Nigeria Senate Committee on Sports, Senator Joe Obinna Ogba (PDP, Ebonyi), on Thursday said it isn’t right for the Nigerian Olympic team to accept a $390,000 gift from Japanese surgeon Dr. Katsuya Takasu.

According to him, it was wrong of the team to receive the money because its source was unknown.

“I don’t think it was nice for our country to accept such money given the happenings around world now. Money is good but it’s not every money that comes your way that you collect. So, I associate myself fully with the President of the Nigeria Football Federation,” he noted.
