Nigeria’s biggest sports event, the National Sports Festival, billed to hold in Edo State may not take place this year after all.

Sports minister, Sunday Dare said on his twitter handle that a meeting between him and the health minister concluded with the painful decision to put the event on the hold.

the Edo festival was scheduled to commence on the 23rd of March, 2020, but considerations around health issues in the face of the dreadful corona virus may have made the two ministers give preference to cautionary measures and postponed the sports festival until the two ministries are assured that that would be no health risks to the hundreds of sportsmen and fans that would troop to Benin, the Edo State capital for the event.

Efforts to reach the spokesperson to the sports minister did not succeed as his phones were said to be switched off.
