Furthermore, Ekiti FA Chairman expresses his displeasure in the organization of the biannual sports event and feels a better arrangement could have been made.
The young boys were asked to play two matches within the space of 2hours. The Ekiti Bees finished their first game against Lagos U-15 at about 6pm and were asked to get ready for their next match against a fresh Oyo U-15 side who have not played any game by 8pm the same day, despite pleas from the Ekiti Bees technical crew and several calls from us which the head of the event failed to answer, the visibly angry sports administrator exclaimed.
