Although the London Olympics has come and gone, yet the memory of the country’s poor outing without a medal still lingers on in people’s mind. The other astonishing story coming from London, however indicates that while Nigerian athletes were busy competing for medals at the Olympics, the Chairman House Committee On Sports, Hon. Godfrey Ali Gaiya was allegedly busy enjoying himself at the prestigious Marriot Hotel, where he lodged. Sources say they are sure that the honourable did not attend any of the sports events, but rather, got himself soaked in his hotel room, enjoying a five star lifestyle. Hon. Gaiya, who represents Jaba/Zangon Kataf Federal constituency of Kaduna state in the Federal House of Reps, was said to have attracted a big attention to himself when he was about to check out of the hotel. This is because the hotel management had requested that the honourable should settle his total bills before he could be allowed to go. At this stage, a very competent source told this magazine that the honourable threw caution to the wind, insisting that the hotel was trying to play a fast one on him. While the hotel was restrained not to embarrass him with the disclosure of his bill, the action of Hon. Gaiya had already attracted attention of busy bodies and concerned Nigerians.
At a stage, when the hotel could not withstand the honourable’s drama, it was disclosed that while the honourable was in his room, he was busy watching pornography channels that were considered premium channels with premium charges. At this stage, many were shocked and embarrassed that while Nigerian athletes were busy trying to do the country proud, the honourable was busy watching adult films in his hotel room.
Grudgingly, the honourable admitted watching the channels and was made to pay about two hundred and forty pounds sterling, (£240).
When the honourable was contacted, he neither picked his phone nor responded to the short message (text) sent to his phone.
