“The male team has been coming to the President’s Cup but they always left empty handed. This year, they were able to win the silver medal which is an improvement.
“We are the only team among the military and paramilitary agencies to have teams in the final. We are happy that our male team was able to win the silver medal. We would go back and work on our lapses.”
“Last year our players were engaged and they could not perform well, but after the elections, we would intensify preparation for the Beach Volleyball Tour,” he said.
Onikeku hailed the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd) and other NCS top officials for the support rendered to sports, noting that the athletes would never disappoint them.
Nigeria Customs Service finished second place in the men and women’s categories at the 2023 President Beach Volleyball Cup in Kaduna.
