Mbora Says Players In Abuja Camp Are Okay


The Secretary of the Nigerian Tennis Federation, NTF, Nkana Nbora, has described the Abuja camp for the national players preparing for the All Africa Games in Maputo, Mozambique, as relatively okay.

She said the federation is allocating the limited resources given to it by the National Sports Commission, NSC, judiciously to prepare the players for the Games.

She said things are going on smoothly for the team at the camp, adding that if there was any problem in the camp, the players and the technical crew would have cried out.

She declined comment on what Nigerians should expect from the team at the forthcoming All African Games. She said the national coach should be the right person to speak on how the team would perform at the Games, stating that she was only concern with administraive job.

‘‘I cannot answer your question on the expectations of Nigerians from the team because I’m an administrator not a coach. The national coach, Rotimi Akinloye, should be the one to answer you, I’m here to perfom administrative duties,’’ Nbora stated.

Twenty four players, male and female, are currently jostling for the slots to feature for Nigeria at the Games. Tennis Special gathered that six male and six female players will make the trip to the African championship in Maputo next month.

Among players in camp are Abdulmumini Babalola, Clifford Enosorogbe and Shehu Lawal in the male category. Fatima Abinu, Anu Aiyegbusi and Blessing Samuel top the names in the female category.
