Daily trust reported that Peters told the
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the sponsor made an
unreasonable demand from PSPAN which was unacceptable to them.
NAN reports that the U-15 Championships was scheduled to hold in November before it was postponed indefinitely.
“The sponsor wanted it to be strictly for players of Egba origin which is unfair.
“We couldn’t accept his terms as the players’ representatives; we can’t sell them out like that.
“How do we tell
players that have been training for the competition that it has been
cancelled and that only players from Egbaland are eligible?
“We did what we
could not accepting the terms because if we do, other potential
sponsors will be giving us ridiculous terms too,’’ he told NAN hoping
that the future was bright.
“PSPAN is not for any particular tribe, we represent every squash player that belongs to the body in every part of the country.
“Because we are trying to use sports as a tool for unity, we couldn’t settle for less.’’
NAN reports that Abel Shedrack from Lagos State won the first edition which was an open tournament. (NAN)
