The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) exhibited prowess by defeating the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) with a lone goal on November 8, 2023, earning a well-deserved spot in the upcoming final match.
The intense competition saw Superintendent Sani Buhari securing the decisive goal for the NCS after a challenging 59-minute match, setting the stage for their entry into the final.
A press release, issued by Superintendent of Customs Akinwale Fatoki, revealed that the semi-final clash, initially slated for a 3 pm kick-off, faced a 20-minute delay due to a protest by the NCS Team.
Allegations of mercenaries among NAGAFF players were raised, but the match proceeded following the Match Commissioner’s advice for official redress through the Maritime Cup Technical Committee.
Known for their resilience, the NCS Team is now gearing up to face the formidable Nigerian Port Authority (NPA) in the final showdown scheduled for Friday, November 10, 2023, at the Stables Sports Complex in Surulere.
