FROM NIGERIA TO QATAR
Born in Nigeria, he received Qatari nationality in 2007. "It was at the end of 2006 that I received an offer to run for Qatar. I was reluctant initially, but later decided to try it out. The facilities to train and improve attracted me. The Athletics Federation of Nigeria did complain to the International Association of Athletic Federations [IAAF]. But the IAAF told them that since I had not run for Nigeria in the preceding three years, there was nothing wrong in my move. At the other end, I told the Qatari people that I would not change my name and my religion." (deccanherald.com, 20 Dec 2007)
