"We are getting set to storm Congo Brazzaville with a bang!" he told Extra Time

"We have been training very hard in Jos for the Games. We participated in two international meets last month in preparation for the Games.

"We are ready for the All Africa Games, my cyclists are in top shape now, by the last week of the camping exercise the cyclists will be good to go. Even our female cyclists are currently number two in Africa.

"The technical crew have decamped four cyclists for not meeting up with the standard set for the All Africa Games. Right now we have 18 cyclists remaining in camp comprising of nine males and nine females. Three each will be dropped later and only six males and six female cyclists will be selected to represent the country at the Games."
