A Nigerian twitter user, Ayanfe Beloved Adeyemi, featured an interview with Nigerian gold medalist female athlete, Tobi Amusan, who broke world record at the World Athletics Championship Women’s 100m Hurdles in Oregon.
Adeyemi berated the Nigerian government for “suddenly celebrating” Amusan, when she won the first ever Gold medal at the event.

Adeyemi said that the Nigerian government, almost killed Amusan’s morale and talent while she was in Nigeria.
The 25-year-old woman from Ijebu Ode in Ogun State has been receiving applause from Nigerians and the Nigerian government since her victory.

Reacting to the Nigerian government identifying with Amusan’s success, Adeyemi recalls the athlete’s ugly experience while in Nigeria.

He said, “Everyone suddenly cares of her (Tobi Amusan) success but I’m more interested in her story. They tried to kill her morale but now they (Nigeria government) are associating with her, including Eleyi the audio adopter.”

Amusan shared a video on Twitter by Adeyemi lamented how the Nigerian government neglected her during a critical time, especially when she sustained an injury.
