Honourable Minister for Youths and Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare has disclosed that the organisers will meet with the government and stakeholders to discuss the way forward for the 2020 National Sports Festival.
The Minister made this known shortly after he received reports from the 11 man committee of the 2020 national sports Festival in his office on Thursday.
The Minister assured that he will get the Government and other stakeholders to round table in order to discuss on when the games will commence.
“We’ll not shy away from making decisions based on the reality on the ground. This is a milestone to determine when to start sporting activities, but we would not jeopardise the health and wellbeing of our sportsmen and women.”
“We shall study your report, sit down with relevant agencies of government to examine the recommendations there-in. The Ministry is properly guided by the Covid-19 protocol.” He said.
