Japanese surgeon and billionaire Katsuya Takasu (71) fulfilled his promise of giving the Bronze winning U-23 team $390,000 on Saturday, August 20, after the third place match against Honduras which they won 3-2… and Nigerians are ecstatic, dishing out praises to the football fan and dissing our billionaires and sports officials.
Here are some of the comments of our compatriots …
Hey @katsuyatakasu! Great gesture with the Nigerian football team! Are you looking at investing in Nigeria as well?

While I appreciate @katsuyatakasu‘s gestures, SHAME on Buhari and Dalung for making Nigeria’s Athletes in Rio an object of Pity

Liars make the best
promises. #Katsuyatakasu made only one promise & kept to his words unlike king Nebuchadnezzar.
