According to NGNewsHub.com, the Chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission, Chief Tonobok Okowa, has promised that all of the facilities and other necessities for the 2022 National Sports Festival in Asaba will be ready between July and August 2022, and that his state will host the best-ever Games.
During an interview with NGNewsHub.com in Abuja, Okowa indicated that all of the paperwork is almost complete, and that all of the facilities will be operational by August 2022.
“In Asaba next year, we want to stage the best-ever National Sports Festival,” Okowa said. “And hopefully, we will host and retain our title as the country’s best sports team. We have practically all of the necessary facilities and needs in place, and the few that we still need to construct will be completed between July and August of next year.
“Our goal is to have everything in place at least four months before the game in December 2022. With our stadiums and sporting facilities, the event will take place in Asaba and a few adjacent cities. Within a 30-kilometer radius of Asaba are the following towns.
“During the games, we will use some of the hostel facilities of various higher education institutions in and near Asaba for sportsmen and women.” Our goal isn’t only to host with the goal of winning, but to put on a National Sports Festival that will be remembered for years,” Okowa, who has guided Delta State to two consecutive National Sports Festival victories, promised.
“By raising the standard to a greater level, we intend to correct all the problems that were visible during the Abuja and Benin City festivals,” he stated. We have the resources to do so. The collection and transmission of results, as well as the transit of athletes and officials to venues and back to dormitories, will all be improved.”
“I will be happy if we hold the best games and we get an unprecedented number of gold medals,” Okowa remarked when asked what will excite him the most as Delta State hosts the 2022 National Sports Festival. We’ve won 163 gold medals in each of the last two games, and I’m very interested in improving on that number.”
