Bright Onyedikachi wows sports minister, Pinnick with jokes
Petite forward, Bright Onyedikachi, was the cynosure of all eyes Sunday night during sports minister Solomon Dalung's and top Nigeria Football Federation officials' visit to the home-based Super Eagles Hill View Hotel and Apartments base here in Kigali.
NFF president Amaju Pinnick requested that the youngest member of the squad give a vote of thanks and the head coach Sunday Oliseh beckoned on Onyedikachi to do that owing to his status as the shortest member of the team.
He duly obliged and sent the entire room into wild laughter with the minister and the officials demanding for more.

LIFE IN KIGALI
The search for eba
Completesportsnigeria.com's reporter, Adeboye Amosu, is in serious hunt for local Nigerian foods (Eba, Amala and Fufu) here in Kigali.
For a man who cannot cope without eating either of the three on a daily basis, it has been difficult task coping without his favourites.
He has however been sustaining himself on the garri and a big bottle of groundnut he brought from Nigeria.
For him, the search for swallow continues and he hopes to end the wait soon.
Kigali, the land of mosquitoes
One of the few negatives here in Kigali is the presence of mosquitoes. This is a big surprise going by the beautiful nature of their environment here.
Even the Hill View Hotel and Apartments of the Super Eagles is not an exception. You see mosquitoes flying around and to have a comfortable sleep one must use a mosquito net.
