House of Representatives donate N18m to Nigeria Paralympics Team

THE Members of House of Representatives Wednesday resolved to donate the sum of N50,000 each to the Nigeria Paralympics Team that represented the country at the just concluded Rio Paralympics Games in Brazil.

The House while in plenary adopted a motion by Rep Ayo Omidiran APC, Osun, saying the team deserved the support of the Green Chamber in view of the unprecedented medals won by members of the team.

The lawmakers also resolved to host members of the team at a special plenary session. Rep Omidiran said members of the team, though physically-challenged, did what has never been done in the history of Nigerian athletics, which was why she said they needed the support and encouragement of the House.
