    It is a great relief to finally see that the deal day for the festival is fist after a long time postponement which was almost discouraging many athletes for 4years plus And I hope this new date will stand to hold this time The hope of the athletes depends on it false hope and readjustment of date this time will totally kill the faith of the athletes in the committee and hope for the game of sports in Nigeria
