Nigerians in Diaspora are yet to come to terms with the shocking display of speedster, Blessing Okagbare that some have blamed spiritual forces for her disappointing race. Blessing placed 8th in a pack of high-profile athletes, some she had beaten before.
Mother of one of Team Nigeria’s athlete, Mrs Glory Udoh who came to the Olympic Village yesterday said that it was so glaring that spiritual forces were against the Nigerian. ‘’We wept openly yesterday. You could see her struggling to get off the block. But they have failed, because God has taken supremacy and control of Team Nigeria’s activities. Her name is a blessing, and God has blessed her that no evil forces will stand on the way of the team, again.
Mrs Udoh who flew all the way from Houston to London to be with her daughter said that Team Nigeria will surprise many in their remaining events. ‘’God has opened the floodgates for His children to arise and shine. Team Nigeria shall move and nothing will stand on their way again’’, she preached.
