The Sports Minister would also commend the triumphant Paralympians for competing fairly and holding their own against some of the best Paralympians in the world.

 

 

 

According to the newmen Dare said,  “You have done us proud. The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is happy with you. Nigerians are happy with you and all we can say now to all of you is ‘thank you’.

 

“It is not just about the colour of medals around your necks. Whether you have a medal round your necks or not. You have demonstrated that you have great abilities inspite of your challenges.

 

“You should also be happy and proud of yourselves. You broke records, set some new world records, received standing ovations many times and held your own against the best and kept your heads up,” Dare concluded.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two pictures. Maybe you could space
    it out better?

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions?
