Rashidi Yekini we heard died penniless. Gringory and a few other past heroes (permit me to call them heroes) also died broke. The guy you see above is Bilyaminu, popularly known as Billy the Kid, a former Nigerian international boxer who won several titles in the 80s. Now he's battling mental illness and lives in a makeshift home near a dump site in Ebute Metta, Lagos.
Some people found out about his condition and are trying to rehabilitate him. They are also calling on the federal government to help the former boxer.
Which brings me to our topic of the day. These people raised the Nigerian flag in their various fields, and now that they've fallen on hard times, does the government have a responsibility towards them? Please share your thoughts!
