‘Ogun 2024 will surpass Delta 2022’

By Daily Sports Nigeria on December 12, 2022

Ogun State Sports Commissioner Oludare Kehinde says the 2024 National Sports Festival in Ogun State will surpass the just-concluded 2022 edition of the event in Delta State.

Kehinde stated this on Saturday, while speaking with journalists at the closing ceremony of the festival in Asaba, after sports minister Sunday Dare announced that the 22nd NSF would be hosted by Ogun.

“Let me assure you that we will surpass what you have seen here (Asaba). Don’t forget that the sports ministry came to Ogun State for an assessment and the Governor assured them that we will do anything possible to put everything in place before they return.

“We have done it in the past and we have the facilities in Ogun, the environment is also conducive and when it comes to issues of security, I think we are okay. I assure you that we shall do anything possible to create that hospitable environment,” Kehinde said.

The commissioner assured journalists that Ogun had learnt from their past experience hosting the festival, adding that it would count in 2024.

“Well, I will just assure you that we have put the technical know-how in place and we have the experience. We also have a technical committee in place. By the time you see the position of the local organising committee, I’m sure you will know that we have the ability and we are capable of hosting the NSF in our state.

“My message to other states is that they should rest assured that we will create a hospitable environment, we will make it possible so that when they have the opportunity to come to Ogun, they will,” Kehinde said.
