The Edo Queens coach expressed the team’s determination to win the Super Six, emphasising that finishing in second place is not their desire. 

“Finishing second best is not an option. Last year, we lost out woefully, and the government is waiting for us,” he said. 

He acknowledged the government’s significant financial and logistical support, which creates an obligation for the team to succeed. 

However, the coach noted that they are taking the situation one game at a time, with their focus being on the upcoming match against Rivers Angels on Monday.

I think we are condemned to win the Super Six. We have one game on Monday, and that’s against Rivers Angels,” he concluded.
