National Stadium, Lagos is one of the venues for Eko 2012
The Main Organising Committee (MOC) of the forthcoming 18th National Sports Festival in Lagos said Thursday that it would make its observations on facilities for the festival known Friday
MOC Secretary-General, Abba Yola, told sportswriters shortly after the final inspection of facilities earmarked for the festival that the MOC’s observations would be ratified today at a joint technical meeting by the inspection team.
“Sports directors and secretaries of federations were designated for the inspection of facilities. What they observed will be tabled at the technical meeting where we will ratify it.
“It is at the technical meeting on Friday that we will make public if we are satisfied with what we have seen or not,’’ Yola told NAN Thursday.
According to him, the MOC did not have a standard of its own, stressing that the Committee only follows the laid-down standards of the international federations.
Yola added that the procedure was to ensure that all sports facilities were in line with set standards.
The facilities inspected included: the National Stadium, the Teslim Balogun Stadium, the University of Lagos, (UNILAG), Yaba College of Technology and the Onikan Mini Stadium.
Others were: the Mobolaji Johnson Sports Complex, Yaba; Union Bank Sports Club, Surulere; the Agege Mini Stadium, Tafawa Balewa Square, Onikan; the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club, Onikan and the Abalti Barracks, Yaba.
NAN reports that the inspection tour of facilities for the festival also involved Sports Directors and Secretaries of the 25 sports associations to feature at the festival
