Atiku Abubakar praised  the trio of Ngozi Onwumere, Akuoma Omeoga, Seun Adigun and Simi Adeagbo, who will represent Nigeria bobsled and skeleton respectively, at the games.

The three women competing in bobsled were originally in track and field eventually switched to bobsled and qualified for the Olympics, a feat which Atiku Abubakar described  as pure evidence of the indomitable spirit of Nigeria to conquer new grounds.

Atiku Abubakar is thrilled to note that the trio’s audacious goal of becoming Africa’s -ever bobsled team to go to the Winter Olympics was the motivating force in the qualification of Simi Adeagbo for the skeleton event.

“These are an example of what each and every one of us can accomplish once we set hearts to it, irrespective of the obstacles that may lie in path.

“I wish these brave women the as they fly nation’s flag at the Olympics. May they be an inspiration to us all to chart new territories and seek to conquer new grounds.”
