Before they embarked to Niger,the Sports Ministry gave them $5,000 (five thousand dollars) which were used to pay the participation fee, feeding and the hotel bills .
A letter signed by the general secretary of the association Mrs.Christine Ashley was presented to the ministry to show their kind appreciation. They believed that, the success chocked in Niger wouldn’t have been possible without the ministry’s help.
“The little that the ministry gave was also recognized. We have assisted some of the federations in the past. But they did not even appreciate us but they went beyond that and for me criticized us unfairly so i am personally even touched about the gesture that you have shown” he said after the presentation.
