National sports festival: Physically challenged Athletes urges sports minister on inclusivity


Some physically challenged athletes in Lagos State have called on the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, to reconsider his stance on delisting them from the forthcoming 2022 National Sport Festival scheduled to hold from November 28 to December 10 in Delta State.

The para athletes made this call at a media briefing in Lagos. They lamented that exclusion from the tournament does not promote inclusiveness.

They explained that they have made lots of investments in their career for the upcoming tournament, adding that the latest development will be a discouragement as the event is a form of rehabilitation to them.
