Lai Mohammed congratulates Anthony Joshua World Heavyweight Champion, says FG would soon invite him

The Minister of Information, Lai Moahmmed has congratulated British professional boxer of Nigerian descent Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua, who recently defeated Ukranian Wladimir Klitschko to become the unified World Heavyweight Champion.

In a statement issued in Lagos today May 2nd, Lai Mohammed, said Nigeria is proud to be associated with the new World champion, whose Nigerian heritage he has publicly acknowledged.


''My heart is in Nigeria, My heart is in Britain. I am a Nigerian man by blood, yes,'' the Minister quoted Joshua as saying in a recent interview, during which he also listed the secret of his success as pounded yam, eba and egusi - all Nigerian cuisine.
He hailed Joshua for his humility, despite his success in boxing, and his undying spirit, coming off the canvas after he was knocked down by Klitschko in the sixth round to win by a Technical Knock Out in the 11th round of their pulsating fight.

Mohammed said the government will soon invite the new World Heavyweight Champion to Nigeria, especially as he has said he is looking forward to giving something back to the country.

Nigerian government is really funny. You find it difficult to bring out the best in your citizens or even to make them, but when they struggle to get a life outside the country, you host meeting to invite him since "he said he is looking forward to giving to the society" funny country with mad schizophrenic rulers!

If I were Anthony Joshua, I wouldnt honour the invitation to come to Nigeria. Nigeria is such a messed up country where nothing works asides corruption and stealing of funds. Now we are claiming AJ.. The British can have him for all I care. When AJ was begging to participate for Nigeria in the 2012 Olympics, No one gave him a chance. Now his stocks have risen, they are now famzing him.
