Blessing Okagbare Devastated Over Hubby's US Visa Application Refusal

Share This

 A distraught Nigeria’s sports woman of the year, who is an Olympic and World Championships medalist in the long jump, a world medalist in the 200 metres, a Commonwealth Games Women's 100 metres record setter who has also won medals at the All-Africa Games and the IAAF Continental Cup, Blessing Okagbare, who tied the knot with her heart-throb, Igho Otegheri on November 8 has been so upset and outraged over her husbands refusal of a Spouse visa by the American embassy. Yes, I know how deeply hurt she feels at the moment... it is SO hard! but I believe everything will be sorted out eventually. Hang in there sweeddyyy and trust in God to send you a helper.

Vanguard has the scoop:

Okagbare who trains with American coach, John Smith in Los Angles was hoping that her husband who won four caps with the Super Eagles will be around at her weakest moments.
“I feel so bad that America Embassy would turn down the visa request by my husband to travel with me to Los Angeles. I have resumed training for the season and I have to go back to my base (Los Angeles) with my husband so that I can concentrate. I have sent copies of my documents, including my Resident Permit in Los Angeles to them so as to facilitate my husband’s traveling with me to the States, but they refused. Help me appeal to them to grant him visa because it won’t be easy for me to shuttle between Nigeria and the States every time. I have to concentrate on my training and the only way to do so is to have my husband with me in the States. I have been so sad since my husband returned from Abuja with this bad news. They have to do something about it,” she lamented.
