Local Organising Committee Threatens To Shut Down Sports Festival

The Local Organising Committee has threatened to shut down the National Sports Festival over the failure of the Federal Government to release funds.

The Coordinator of Media and Publicity, National Sports Festival, Ebomhiana Musa stated this in a statement on Wednesday.

“The Local Organising Committee, Edo2020 regrets to announce that it will end the games abruptly tomorrow, Thursday, April 8, 2021, for lack of funds,” the statement partly read.

“Rising from an emergency meeting this evening, the LOC says it has to take this hard decision due to lack of funds having expended its reserves to kick start the games.

“Regrettably, the FG is yet to redeem its pledge to support us as the host state financially for the cost of postponements. So, we are left with no option but to end the games at noon tomorrow.”
