In the 4×400 metres, Nigeria finished second with a time of 3:25.29 behind Jamaica’s 3:24.00 while Botswana came third finishing with 3:26.86.

Patience Okon-George, Glory Nathaniel, Praise Idamadudu and Yinka Ajayi did the magic for the country.

Also in the women’s 4X100m relay, Nigeria also got bronze behind England and Jamaica, with Joy Udo-Gabriel, Blessing Okagbare, Tobi Amusan and Rosemary Chukwuma forming an alliance on the track for the country.

Murphy Adaji, coach, Kids N Play, an FCT athletics club that produced Chukwuma said: “I give God the glory for her performance.

“Chukwuma could not participate in women’s 100m because they said she had not acclimatized but God still shows His greatness in 4X100m relay.

“If Nigeria continues to look out for genuine talents like this, we will soon get back to glorious days,” he said.

Nigeria has already got nine Gold, eight silver and six bronze in the fiesta which will end on Sunday. The Games started April 4.
