The 20th edition of the National Sports Festival (NSF) officially kicked off with a resplendent opening ceremony at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Edo, on Tuesday night.
Sunday Dare, Minister for Youth and Sports Development, flagged off the sporting festivity as the ceremony featured radiant march-past parades from all the participating states including the FCT.
Other dignitaries present at the ceremony include Godwin Obaseki, Governor of Edo state; Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta state; Philip Shaibu, Deputy Governor of Edo state, amongst others.
The 20th NSF has suffered a series of postponements due to COVID-19 and its implications on sporting events across the world.
The sporting event will end on April 14.
