Maikano Adamu, Secretary of the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF), told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja that 13 players were selected to represent the country at the championship.
“Thirty-four players were invited to camp but only 13 were selected for the championship holding between Aug. 17 and Aug. 24,’’ he said.
According to him, two coaches, a referee, one technical official and the federation’s secretary are part of the contingent.
“All is set for the championship but we are still looking for money to go. We are hoping to leave either on Wednesday or Thursday for the competition,’’ Adamu said.
He said Aug. 17 was the arrival date for the 24 teams that would feature in the championship.
