This is a very sad blow for the nation. Nigerian team has been denied visa to participate in the 2016 MSI World Championships in Lille, France. World Scrabble champion, Wellington Jighere who shared the sad and embarrassing news on his page -didn’t give any reason for the rejection. The Mindsports World Youth Scrabble Championship will run from August 27 – 29, 2016.

Wellington wrote on his page;

This is to wish everyone participating in this year’s MSI World Scrabble Championships the best of luck since I and my Nigerian compatriots were refused visas. Yes, you heard me right! The number one Scrabble playing nation on earth was refused visas to enable her contingent participate at a Scrabble event. I guess some folk somewhere need to be better at their job next time.
May the best player win!
