The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development (FMYSD) has clarified that the scheduled National Youth Games in Ilorin, Kwara State had not been cancelled, rather only the arrival date was shifted by two days on the directive of Mr Sunday Dare, the sports minister.

The games had been billed for October 10 – 19 in the Kwara capital and no fewer than 10 states have already arrived on Sunday as earlier scheduled.

The Director, Grassroots Sports Development, in the ministry, Alhaji Bode Durotoye, who made the clarification in an interview on Monday, in Ilorin, described news of the cancellation as a ”bad rumour”.

“We have not cancelled the National Youth Games, how could we have done that, when some states have arrived.

“The Minister only directed us to shift arrival day by two days, for those who have not arrived, because of the non-availability of hostels, due to the ongoing exam by University of Ilorin students.

“The Minister also said that those who are yet to arrive or who have not left their states to wait an extra two days for the hostels to be available before they arrive,” Durotoye said.

The games are billed to hold at the Sports facilities of the University of Ilorin.
