Despite the huge support that the victorious Super Falcons are getting after the country’s sports authorities failed to pay them their outstanding wages, the popular comedian, Alibaba towed a different path by attacking the champions of Africa for demanding their emoluments.
The ace Comedian described the protest staged by the girls as inappropriate and distasteful. He said the players should learn from ministers who represent the country in international meetings and soldiers who fight with and lose their lives without being compensated and do not stage protests.
Alibaba said that the girls overreacted by protesting for what he described as ‘peanuts’, adding that they were not the first to make Nigeria proud.
He said, “So what is all these noise about? Have you heard that the retirees who served this country and still haven’t gotten pensions, die on the reaccreditation queues complain? These Falcons are lucky they were not soldiers! The guardroom they would have been put would have been cold and humbling. How dare you? How dare you ask? How dare you even think of protesting? OK the silver medalists got celebrated in their countries… so? See,… you are all better behave yourselves. The other room is occupied so there is no room for this recalcitrant behaviour. Protesting for peanuts! Mscheeeeeeeeew! Can’t you see how we treat our stadia? Go and ask well… some people who played with Segun Odegbami don’t have their gifts yet. Do the maths. Go solve the mathematics of we-don’t-care-raised-to-power-shioooor. Are you the first to represent your country. Okwaraji died. We no send am. Talk less you sumall sumall girls that don’t know anything. Falcons kor… far cry ni.“
