African Minifootball Nations Cup: “Nigeria Has Set The Pace For Other African Countries And It Can Only Get Better” – Rawlings Semlek


Chairman, Nigeria Minifootball Association Plateau State Chapter, Rawlings Semlek has thumbs up the leadership of Minifootball in Nigeria, headed by Rt. Honourable Oluyemi Adewale Taiwo.

Speaking to yesterday after the opening ceremony and match which ended goaless between host, Nigeria and Libya, Semlek praised all efforts put in place to make sure everything went well without any major noticeable hitch despite the challenges brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic, which brought about the paucity of funds.

According to Semlek: “I must commend our able President, Honourable Wale Taiwo, all the Zonal Coordinators, especially the North Central Coordinator, Batako Umar Lapai, all States Chairmen, the indefatigable Secretary General and the host State for making the hosting of this event, the fist in Nigeria a possibility despite the financial challenges posed by the Coronavirus pandemic.
He continues: “accommodating and feeding all the African teams on ground at this point in time is no mean feat. The newly built Minifootball stadium, modern day sports facilities that include five standby well equipped ambulances and many others are some of the ingredients needed for a successful Competition .”

It would be recalled that the President of Africa Minifootball Confederation, Achraf Ben Salha during his speech at the opening ceremony, described the facilities at the Ilaji Hotels and Resorts “as the best in Africa for the game of Minifootball.”
