By Adetokunbo FAKEYE
The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) team on 8 November 2023, defeated the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) with a lone goal, to secure their place in the final stage of the competition.
As confirmed by the spokesperson for the team, Superintendent of Customs Akinwale Fatoki, NCS secured the goal against NAGAFF after a tough match that lasted about 59 minutes, through Superintendent Sani Buhari.
He said the semi-final match was initially scheduled to kick off at 3 pm but was delayed by approximately 20 minutes due to a protest by the NCS Team.
"They alleged that the NAGAFF Team had mercenaries among its players. However, the match proceeded after the Match Commissioner advised the Team Manager of NCS to seek official redress through the Technical Committee of the Maritime Cup.
"The NCS Team, known for its resilience, is set to face the Nigerian Port Authority (NPA) in the final match on Friday, November 10, 2023, at the Stables Sports Complex in Surulere", Fatoki stated.
