Former Olympic athlete who fills potholes thanks Ahmed Musa for N500k



Super Eagles Captain, Ahmed Musa has fulfilled his pledge to give the sum of N500,000 to former Olympian, Bassey ‘Iron Bar’ Etim.

This follows a viral video of the Gold medalist filling potholes around the Ado-Badore road in the Ajah axis of Lagos State as a community development service.

Musa came across the video and offered to support 56-year-old Bassey. In a new video circulating online, he thanked the former CSKA Moscow and ex-Leicester City star for giving him half a million naira.

“I’m just speechless and I’m very happy. This is a special day for me for receiving such a gift. God will bless him and his family. I’m grateful and very happy,” he said.

Bassey won a gold medal at the 1983 Commonwealth Games in Malta. He had revealed that he suffered an injury while representing Nigeria at the 1984 Olympic Games.
