    As am writing this,I feels a lot of joy in my heart for Serana & her sister’s visit to Nigeria…They really needs to be honoured because it’s not easy to choose Nigeria as their 1st Tour to Africa,it shows a lot of courage & respect to their root being African-American.Though,they are American Citizens but they haven’t forgotten their “Lineage…” I’m so happy to hear Serena saying, “she would have been happy to be a Nigerian,but also proud to be an American citizen.” In short,Venus & her sister are good<<In other words,I think Remi is right.Nigerian Government should look into this & try to developing other sports like Tennis,BasketBall etc. & I wish Serena would visit Nigeria again…..

      …what about our government investing in its citizens, instead of squandering the country 's money, the knuckle heads that are governing the country. I hope that was a meaningful visit because I don't see it as one.
