Sports Minister inaugurates 12-man committee to ensure Edo 2020 Is COVID-19 Compliant

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare, has inaugurated a 12 -member committee.
The committee will ensure COVID-19-compliant infrastructure and protocols for the 20th National Sports Festival tagged “Edo 2020”.

The virtual inauguration by Dare in Abuja is a follow-up to the extraordinary National Council on Sports meeting on May 18, which called for the hosting of the postponed festival later in the year.

The minister urged members of the committee to interface with relevant agencies to ensure COVID-19-compliant infrastructure for the festival.

”Your terms of reference include ascertaining the level of COVID-19 compliance to infrastructure put in place by the Edo government,

“You should also work out and put in place requirements to manage any foreseeable and unforeseeable crises that may arise as a result of the organisation of the 20th festival,” he said.

Dare also advised the committee to prepare a code of operations (COVID-19 protocols) that would guide athletes, officials, spectators and relevant stakeholders for the successful hosting of the event.
