At least 13 out of the 15 states presently in Benin, Edo State, for the 20th National Sports Festival (NSF) had passed the COVID-19 screening.

The Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, disclosed this to journalists in Benin on Saturday.

Shaibu, who is also the Chairman of Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the festival, said Oyo and Taraba failed the screening as they did not adhere to the guidelines given to the states to qualify them to participate in the nation’s biggest sports fiesta.

He said the guidelines would be strictly enforced to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at the games.
