Scrabble World Champion Wellington Jighere denied travel visa by French Embassy to World Championship in Lille


    Wellington Jighere, the reigning world champion of Scrabble has been denied travel visa to represent Nigeria at World Championships in Lille, France. He shared this photo on social media today wishing his teammates luck.

    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!
