National Sports Festival: Edo Squash Team, MOC Disagree Over Double Registration

By  | 

The squash team representing hosting state, Edo, and the Main Organising Committee (MOC) of the National Sports Festival (NSF) have disagreed over double registration as activities enter day two.

The 20th edition of the Sports Festival, tagged Edo 2020, after a series of postponement, had its opening ceremony on Sunday, April 4.

BlackBox Nigeria learnt that squash events were delayed from commencement on Monday morning.

The affected players, two males and one female, initially registered with Bayelsa state and now registered with Edo State again, making it double registration — which is totally against the rules.

It was further gathered that the technical officials later decided to remove the female player in order not to further delay the event. The match started with singles for female — chart for the female players had been drawn.

As at the time of filing this report, we have no information about what would be the fate of the affected male players.
