Igwe Inspects Facilities In Readiness For NSS

The Rivers State Commissioner for Sports, Hon. Fred Mbombo Igwe, on Saturday 26th of January, 2013 went on inspection of Sports facilities meant for the National Schools Sports to be hosted by Rivers State.
Places visited were Uniport Game Village where the swimming pool and few other sports facilities were inspected in readiness for the 5th National Sports festival, being hosted by Rivers State, here in the Garden city of Port Harcourt.
Later on, the commissioner inspected the facilities in Adokiye Amiesimaka Sports complex in company of sports journalists.
Speaking to sports journalists, Hon. Fred Igwe affirmed that Rivers State is very much ready to host the rest of the 36 states of the federation, adding that the athletes have arrived and are settling down to cue for the games proper.
He, however, revealed that because of the importance of the children and the programme to the federation and Rivers State and to correct past records, the state had put up a formidable feeding committee to oversee the feeding arrangement of the programme, hoping that the committee will do a great job.
Hon. Igwe stressed that Rivers State was hosting to develop the talents in the federation, advising that the “win at all cost” syndrome should be discouraged as the idea behind the competition is discovering talents for the country other than the wining at all cost mentality.
He confirmed that he was satisfied with the facilities on ground and confirmed the clinic okay for the athletes’ full participation in that regard.
He disclosed that the Adokiye Amiesimaka sports complex would be commissioned by March this year as the project ought to be completed by that time. He posited that if not for some facilities which would be arriving from abroad, like the score board and others which will be arriving the state June 2013, the stadium would have been completed for use internationally. ###
