My statement taken too far – Dalung

The Minister of Youths and Sports, Mr. Solomon Dalung, on Friday has reacted to a statement credited to him that has gone viral all over the social and news media.

The Minister was reported to have said that “the Federal Government did not expect the Super Falcons to win the just-concluded CAF African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon” saying the statement was taken out of context.

Dalung spoke when President Muhammadu Buhari granted audience to the Senator Kabir Gaya-led delegation organising the  National Youth Open Water Swimming Competition.

The minister said the government was committed to paying the outstanding entitlements of the players.



  1. This guy has embarrassed this govt on several occasions.
    Every minute he spends on his post is giving this administration a negative public relations.

    • The situation of the Super Falcon is an embarrassment to football lovers in Nigeria. Mark it, this will definitely affect the standard of women football in Nigeria in not too distance future.

  2. Taken out of context in what sense? That you didn’t say it or that you didn’t mean it that way? Clueless rebel-looking Minister.
