The former minister of Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung said Nigeria is able to host international competitions, most especially, the All African Games (AAG) with the current facilities in Benin.
Dalung, who said this on the sidelines of the closing ceremony of the 20th National Sports Festival (NSF) in Benin, said he was proud of Edo state government in providing the facilities.
“First of all, I commend Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo for delivering on his promise of a successful festival, while I challenge other states to provide the same facilities for their people.
“Second, I am very proud of what I see here in Edo. The facilities here can be used to host any international event.
“With the way I see this infrastructure, I am tempted to think that we no longer have challenges of bidding for any international competition.
