The Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Vitus Okechi has said that the state athletes will be camped three months to the Edo 2020 National Sports Festival (NSF) to enable them prepare adequately for the festival.
Speaking to Enugu coaches in his office recently, the commissioner assured the coaches that athletes for the festival would be camped at the Enugu Sports Council for training so as to improve their efficiency.
The Edo 2020 festival will be taking place in March in Benin, Edo State.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the ministry, Dan Onwuegbuna quoted the Commissioner of assuring that the welfare of the athletes will be paramount as the state is gearing up for laurels in the festival.
Okechi assured the coaches that Indoor Sports Games will henceforth be at the Indoor Sports Hall rather than at the open space where Basketball players had been training
He noted with regret that the Indoor Sports Hall of Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium is been used for church activities and meetings that are not Sports.
