Polaris Sports

Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, has revealed that sporting activities, which were shutdown in March in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country, are to resume any moment from now.

Dare, who spoke on a Voice of Nigeria (VON) radio programme, Issues in the News, on Wednesday, 8th July, said that plans have reached an advanced stage on how to open up the space for sports to return after nearly four months lockdown.

He however insisted that non-combat sports like table tennis, tennis, badminton and track & field will be amongst the first set to return from the forced holiday due to the pandemic.

“We hope that our athletes can get back to action soon with non-combat sports first to return.

The minister however did not state the exact date set for the return of sporting activities.

“Although no date has been set, but we must submit to the Covid-19 protocols in line with the practice all over the world,” Dare said.
