The Edo 2020  Sports Festival Committee set up to review Edo state readiness to  host the event in the wake of the postponement due to the outbreak of covid-19 has submitted its report to Youth and Sports Development Minister Mr. Sunday Dare.

Speaking while submitting its report to the Minister on Thursday in Abuja, Chairman of the Committee  Honourable Tonobok Okowa said the committee had done a thorough job which would help the government  decide on the best possible date to host the festival.

Receiving the report, the Minister said, "Exactly a month ago this committee was set up, I thank you for keeping to the schedule of your mandate. We shall study your report, sit down with relevant agencies of government to examine the recomendations there-in. The Ministry is properly guided by Covid-19 protocol and will not shy away from taking decisions based on the reality on the ground."

Dare further said, "This is a milestone to determine when to start sporting activities, but we would not jeorpadise the health and wellbeing of our sportsmen and women."

The commiitee has made several recommendations which would be scrutinized before a final decision is taken on the hosting of the festival.
