Warm Reception: Between President Buhari And I by Aderonke Bello


It was a warm and superb reception
followed with cash prizes from the
Nigerian President, Muhammadu
Buhari.
So, as I made my way to meet him
inside the banquet hall at the state
house in Abuja on January 21, the
DSS blocked me and said madam you
are too late you can’t enter, go back!
Being the kind of person that I am –
I don’t take no for an answer.
Mr. Femi Adesina was about to enter
and I quickly said, editor please ask
them to allow us in, we have work to do,
and that was it, I was the last soul to
enter the hall before the President
made his way in.
I entered into the hall, few minutes
later Mr. President strolled in and I
giggled .
My Open Letter And Subtle Appeal
It was few weeks to the end of 2015
and thoughts were going flashing
through my head about the unsung
heroes that brought joys to the faces
of many Nigerians in the year.
After his elections victory, I did a
congratulatory message and an open
letter to His Excellency explaining the
state of sports in Nigeria.
As we know, sports is the only
unifying factor in our already
ethnically and religion divided
country and it has to be taken
seriously.
The president had promised to
appoint technocrats as Ministers, but
the sports minister is no technocrat
in sports administration, although he
is administratively sound, this made
me take a sigh of relief – the fact
that a seasoned sports administrator
is the director general at the sports
commission, together they can
achieve a lot.
Shortly after the appeal was made,
sports minister sent out a press
release informing Nigerians that Mr.
president is ready to host the
victorious teams, and after a while, a
set date was fixed and I smiled .

The Super Falcons
Mr President permit me to be an
Oliver Twist. In little or no time,
another reception will happen which
will see Nigerians clinching gold
medals at the Olympics (I believe)
and also the U-17 girls winning the
FIFA world cup scheduled to hold this
year in Jordan, they will qualify (I
believe).
The falcons who won the African cup
of nations in 2014 are yet to be
received by the president, I look
forward to a future reception with
you.
In a warm plea made to Mrs Buhari
sometime last year, I urged her to
carry the female athletes along as
some needs her motherly reach and I
hope this will help.
As you can see, it was a warm
reception indeed worthy of all on the
long run, thank you Mr. President for
listening to me, however
coincidental, I am indeed humbled,
for me on this one, it is mission
accomplished.
