Also speaking on the championship, president of, Nigeria Volleyball Federation, Musa Nimrod, commended the tournament’s sponsor, adding that most of the players are raw talents with a number of them still writing secondary school exams.

“The competition consists of volleyball players who don’t play in the league. This is the real grassroots we are talking about. I am not surprised with the performance of Offa because they have developmental programmes and they have always been together. The future is bright for the game because of them,” he said.
