The ASPAC of Benin Republic player said, “If I get invited into the senior national team of the Nigeria Handball, I’ll put in more commitments”.

Commenting on the match between Ghana Navy, he said, “The match was not easy for I and my teammates but we had to beat Ghana Navy in order to have upper hand in the ongoing Championship because it’s a round Robin game. This is for us to have more score and points than other teams”.

He added,” The team expects much from me because I’m a professional and an invitee to the team. I have to put more effort as well as the mastermind the game so that we can excel”.
