Mr. Onikeku, who oversees the technical department of the federation, noted that with the forthcoming competition on February 16-17th, athletes would be 95% ready for the Games.
"We had good performances in the 400m, 1500m, high jump, long jump, and 200m, where athletes posted commanding results that could earn Nigeria a podium appearance in the Accra, Ghana Games."
According to Onikeku, with athletes' performance in the first competition, which ended today, and the anticipated performance in the second competition, the selection for camping would be very easy.
