The Local Organising Committee has threatened to shut down the National Sports Festival over the failure of the Federal Government to release Funds
This is according to the Coordinator of Media and Publicity, National Sports Festival, Ebomhiana Musa, who confirmed this to Channels Television on Wednesday night.
The Federal Government had promised to make funds available for the sports festival before its commencement and it was because of the assurance that made the Local Organising Committee go ahead with the Sports Festival.
However, seven days after the games started, the Federal Government is yet to fulfil the promise made to the Edo State Government.
As a result of this, the LOC wants to shut down the games by 12noon tomorrow if funds are not made available.
