PTF Clears Covid-19 Hurdle For Edo 2020 Sports Festival

The Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 has  given a formal approval  for the staging of the Edo 2020 National  Sports  Festival  after the host state  met all the stipulated health protocol.
 A letter dated March 30, 2021 and signed by Dr Assad Hassan to the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Chief Sunday Dare, said, “Consequent to the adequate  preparatory engagements on Covid-19 Protocol between  Edo State, National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the National Primary Health Care Development Agency towards safe conduct of the Sports Festival, I have been directed to  convey the approval of the PTF for the 2020  National Sports Festival to proceed as scheduled from April 2nd- 14th.”
The PTF further commended the Minister  of Youth and Sports Development for taking the bold, difficult but necessary step of postponing the Festival severally due to the spike in the spread of the pandemic.
The Festival was earlier billed to take place last year but was postponed  following  the outbreak of Covid-19 which led to national lockdown.
