The Savoy, located on the River Thames between Mayfair and the city of London, is one of the most remarkable luxury hotels in UK’s capital. It is a five-star hotel and ranked 87th among world best and expensive hotels.
While it is still noted that that the London 2012 Olympics was arguably the worst the country has ever participated in since the inception of the games, Nigerians are dying to know what happened to the said N2.2 billion given to the sports ministry towards the Olympics preparation. However, many are of the belief that the country only went for the games with spectators and not competitors. Nigeria went to the London 2012 Olympics with 52 athletes and over 200 officials; with about N2.2 billion spent on preparation and logistics. The country, however, won no medals.
Meanwhile, sports analysts have called on the federal government to probe the expenditure of the funds released to the ministry towards the Olympics. The Kwara State-born former journalist cum minister, Bolaji, is also expected to share with Nigerians on how the money was spent.
