ASABA 2022: The Gold Is In A Child; Hunting Of New Talents Should Be Our Focus

December, 1 2022.

Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development is full of excitement considering the level of preparness of many states as far as this 21st National Sports Festival is concerned. According to the passionate lover of sports who spoke to the pressmen at the opening ceremony of the event.

My sight and focus is on the 10 days when I am looking for talents to deploy into the national team for the next Olympics, France 2024.


“My immediate concern is searching for young talents to represent Nigeria at international games.


“I thank the Delta State Government for the adequate preparations because they did not have the entire 24 months to be ready rather 16 months.

“A lot of credits go to the government, which for me, is one of the highlights of the game and also, all the state of the federation are all represented in the festival.”


“We have five states that have registered their intention to host the next NSF, so, it will be a battle within them.


“Come December 10, when we will announce the winner, we will also announce the next host of the festival, the best state will win.


“I am waiting for the game to start to have a feel of what our athletes have in stock for us,” Dare concluded.
