...Minster hails facilities

Sports Minister, Chief Sunday Dare, declared on Friday that the 21st National Sports Festival tagged Delta 2022 will go ahead as scheduled.

A joint technical meeting involving the Main Organising Committee (MOC), the Local Organising Committee (LOC) and other stakeholders of the event took place in Asaba after the inspection of facilities. The Sports Festival will hold from November 28 to December 10.

“The last time I came here, there were no foundation, but I can say that virtually all the facilities are about 80 percent ready. I am really impressed. This shows the level of seriousness the government and people of Delta State attach to the National Sports Festival,” Dare stated.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari performed the flag-off of the Torch of Unity Movement in Abuja last week to officially begin the countdown to Delta 2022.
