The Tokyo 2020 Paralympics games Paralifting gold medalist, Bose Omolayo has said she can cater for her family.
The athlete denied a statement credited to Queen Idris who had alleged that Omolayo cannot cater for her family.
Our correspondent learnt that the immediate past president of the Nigeria Para Powerlifting Federation (NPPF), Queen Idris has said in Tokyo that Omolayo could not cater for her children before coming for the games in Tokyo.
But, Omolayo in her reaction said she was not hungry.
She spoke to reporters in Tokyo in Japan.
She noted that she has been working with Delta State sports council for the past ten years.
Omolayo said, “I am not in any way hungry as said by Queen. How on earth will she have said that about me and my family.
“For records, I have been working with Delta State Sports Commission for the past ten years, even long before I met or knew her. I earn salaries from the Delta state government, so how can she now say I am hungry or cannot cater for my children.
“This has really embarrassed my family, my husband is at the moment angry and fuming over that statement credited to the former president”.
Omolayo said she opened up on the matter to let people know her status that she and her husband can cater for the family.
“I am saying this so that people will know that with the little I have with my husband, we have been able to take care of ourselves and has never for once collected money from her before the games except for the 50,000yen she promised if I should win gold.
“I am bold to say it anywhere that what she (Queen) said about me was a blatant lie but nothing but a white lie”.
