The captain of the Nigeria beach volleyball team, Kayode Agirore has cried out to the National Sports Commission (NSC) over the poor state of feeding in the camp ahead of the final phase of the 2012 London Olympics Volleyball qualifier scheduled for Mauritius next month. The dependable volleyball star disclosed this yesterday in Abuja after training where two will be picked for the qualifiers.
He said the eight players currently in camp have been abandoned by the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF) and left in starvation. “We are begging the NSC to come to our rescue. We have been abandoned by the federation to starve.
No food, water or kits to train with. So tell me, how can we compete favorably with our counterparts in Mauritius come April 8th,” he asked?
“We are dying here slowly unknown to the commission. Let me use this medium to tell Nigerians we are not here on our own, we are here to represent the country and do her proud in London.”
Agirore also implored NSC to organize training tour for team and friendly matches to enable the players get exposed and adapt to the new model equipment ahead of the qualifier tournament.
