Edo 2020: National Sports Festival Postponed On the Heels Of Coronavirus Spread (VIDEO)


The 2020 Edo National Sports Festival has been postponed due to the increasing spread of coronavirus.

While several tournaments around the globe had been postponed, the Sports Festival was on course to hold as the organizers assured the public of measures put in place to curb the virus.

However, a section of Nigerians did not fancy the idea of carrying on with the festival considering the population involved at such events.

Nigeria’s Minister of Youth and Sports Sunday Dare had on Tuesday announced that he was in a meeting with health experts to assess the situation.

However, after the meeting, the former NCC personnel announced the festival had been called off following his meeting with the President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari.
