National Sports Festival: Governor Yahaya Bello Provides Financial Support

In tandem with his commitment to the upliftment of the youth and support for their development, Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has provided financial support to the youth-based National Sports Festival to the tune of N40 million.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, which disclosed Governor Bello’s support as the National Sports Festival got underway, expressed appreciation to the youth loving Kogi State Governor and the state for supporting the fiesta.

It said the fund will go a long way in uplifting the youth who are the larger participants at the National Sports Festival as the Ministry will commit the Fund to provide feeding, transportation and ancillary support.

The Ministry expressed the belief that other state governors will emulate Governor Yahaya Bello in supporting the National Sports Festival as a show of their support for the youth by promoting the fiesta that helps to build their careers in sports.

Over 65% of the athletes are youth for whom the fiesta, dubbed Nigeria’s Olympics, is a great opportunity to hone their skills and possibly secure tickets to the Tokyo Olympics.

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare, had personally called to thank Gov. Yahaya Bello for coming through quickly in support of the Nigerian Youth.

“ The Governor’s support is timely and useful and I thank him on behalf of the youth who will be participating in the 20th National Sports Festival in Edo”.
