According to Ohaa, the feat achieved was as a result of their commitment, hard work, determination and total focus; adding that, “appreciation of their efforts would not end in the settlement of all their claims and entitlements which had been paid by the ministry but promised that the Minister of Youth and Sports Barr Solomon Dalung, will in no distant future, at a befitting grand occasion lead them to our Sport-loving President.”
