“Team Nigeria  have done well but many things have to be done  because we can not compare our performance with other countries.

“When we hosted the Africa Cup championship for the first time  in 2019, we  (Nigeria) won a total of 51 medals.

“Our contingent was made up of 21 cyclists of both female and male categories .

“We garnered a total of 51 medals made up of 21 Gold, 18 Silver and 12 Bronze medals to emerge champions,” he said.

“Rather this year, we have a contingi of 35 cyclists of both female and male categories; we were able to garner  17 medals, consisting four Gold, seven Sliver and  six Bronze medals,” he said.

He said Nigeria did not live up to the expectations of the Federation and the country but hopefully would do more during  the next Championships.

“In the championship in 2019, Egypt came second, winning eight Gold, seven Silver and seven Bronze medals

Egypt now are having 26 medals consisting of  eight Gold, eight  Silver and 10  Bronze medals in the just concluded championship.

He said  this showed they were progressing and growing.

” Morocco came third with four gold and three silver medals.

Burkina Faso took fourth position with three silver, five bronze whereas Burundi came fifth with two bronze medals.”

Nigeria’s neighbour, Ghana placed sixth with a Bronze medal, while Liberia, Ivory Coast and Benin had no medal.

“It is unfortunate that the country (Nigeria) came fourth place in the 2022 African Track Cycling Championships in Abuja .

“With this outcome, we are growing in a very low speed, compared to other countries that we participated together during the first edition.

“The other African countries have a very good support from government and other bodies that helped and supported them  and they are making a good progress compared to Nigeria.

“I think the future is bright for Nigeria in-spite of lots of challenges that we have no resources; we have also achieved at the international levels,” he said .

 On his part, Habul Gumel, the president of the Nigeria Olympics Committee (NOC), congratulated the federation for successful hosting of the championship.

” I want to thank all cyclists that came to Nigeria and Nigerian cyclists and especially those nations that made it to podium, including Nigeria cyclists.

” I want to congratulate those that won medals and for those that didn’t win medals all of you did well,” he said.
