By Vincent Anikwushe, Asaba


A 13-member Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the 2020 Delta State School Sports Festival has been inaugurated by the State Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Chief Patrick Ukah, in Asaba.

Chief Ukah stated that the state school sports festival was different from the state sports festival as the former is meant to discover talents at the school level that can be further nurtured by the latter.

He warned that mercenaries will not be allowed to participate in the competition, adding that it was strictly for students just as he said that accommodation had been secured for the students to camp.

Chief Ukah noted that the joy of participating in the school sports festival was when the names of schools were mentioned during the event, and called on members of the LOC to avoid using just zones to introduce students.

Speaking on behalf of members of the LOC, the Director General of the State Sports Commission, Mr. Chris Anaziah, represented by Mr. Celestine Ibegbunem, thanked the commissioner for finding members worthy to serve, promising that they will not disappoint in discharging the duties assigned to them.
