About three weeks ago, Nigeria started in earnest, its Olympic Games preparations. We had waited for the completion of the Doha Athletics Championship before officially starting our preparations.

“We have less than nine months and where the pre-games camping will take place is critical to our preparations for Tokyo 2020.

“I’m glad that we are able to follow up on the initiatives of previous Ministers and Ambassadors who have acted rightly on behalf of this country”, the sports minister said.

The minister has stressed that the country will focus only on sports in which the country had a competitive advantage, stating that next year’s Olympics would not be the usual jamboree witnessed in the recent past as efforts were on to ensure the country returned from Tokyo with medals.

The 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will run from July 24 to August 9 and Team Nigeria is one of the countries that will participate at the Games.
