The commissioner for youth and sports development Sunday Dare, says the 2020 National Sports Festival scheduled for Benin, Edo State, could hold this year, but added that the ministry will be properly guided before taking a final decision.

The National Sport Festival was postponed in March by the sports minister as a precautionary measure against the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

With normalcy gradually returning, Dare said the festival could hold before December.

Our expectation is that it happens this year,” Dare said on Channels TV’s Sports today.

“I take my cue from the meeting of the National Council on Sports. We had a virtual meeting about 11 weeks ago and the council unanimously agreed that the sports festival should hold in 2020, and that means perhaps between now and December.

We will be working with the relevant authorities before we can take the decision. I’ve said it repeatedly; the ministry of sports will be properly guided before we take a final decision.”
