FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, has received the Unity Torch award of the National Sports Festival.

Receiving the award in Abuja, from a contingent of FCT Athletes led by the FCTA Director of Sports, Mrs Dilichukwu Onyedinma, the minister prayed for the successful visit of the torch to all the 36 States of the Federation.

“As we flag-off the journey of this beautiful torch of unity for the unity games, we hope that God Almighty will see this torch go through all the 36 states and culminate in Benin the Sports city.”

Bello commended the Edo State contingent for its excellent performance during the 2019 games in the FCT in which it emerged the overall best.

He also appreciated the Ministry of Sports for partnering with the FCT Administration to resuscitating the National Sports Festival, after six years.

According to him, the games provided a platform for Nigerian sports men and women to showcase their talents.

The Unity Torch contingent was accompanied by the Gbagyi cultural troupe and displayed their cultural dance.
