FG shifts Sports Festival in Edo to April


The National Sports Festival (NSF)  scheduled to hold  in Edo State in February has been shifted to April, 2021.
Mr Sunday Dare, the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, announced the change on Monday at the Presidential Task Force (PTF)  on COVID-19 National Briefing in Abuja.
The NSF, which had been postponed several times, was to have taken place from February  14 to 28, 2021  in Benin, the Edo State capital.
Dare said that the postponement was approved owing to scarcity of funds and the virulence of the second wave of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The minister reiterated  the commitment of the Federal  Government to give Nigerian youths the opportunity to compete and prepare for the next Olympics.
