    They have made Nigerians proud in the Paralympic games to a T. May God continue to bless you as you kill it with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. Isn’t it great to point out that over 80-90% of medalists in this year’s games are Igbos?

    Before the two-faced tribalists point arrows at me, just know that I have a reason for posting this comment. Bellanaija will you publish it? LMAO.
