Team Ogun Contingent have departed for the 20th National Sports Festival in Edo which commenced on Friday.
The state contingent completed the COVID 19 mandatory test on Saturday at the MTR Specialist Hospital, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta on, leaving the Rock City in conveyor at noon amidst hope and determination.
Many of the athletes whose events will kick start tomorrow were also among those that made the trip to the ancient Benin City, while others are to have enough relaxation before the commencement of their events.
However, the second batch of the team are expected to leave sunday since all the modalities have been perfected by the management of the Ogun State Sports Council led by its Director of Sports, Mrs. Folakemi Oluwakemi Rotimi.
Top management staff of the sports council who have been having sleepless night for weeks were on ground to ensure smooth movement of athletes and officials for the festival that have suffered series of postponements due to the Coronavirus pandemic that disrupted the sports and business calendars globally.
