Nigeria: Eko 2012 - Games Services Yet to Begin Compilations

The Games Services, the section responsible for the appropriate compilation of medal results for the ongoing 18th National Sports Festival (NSF) has yet to begin its assignment, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Journalists that thronged the office at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere on Wednesday could not get the results of the previous day's events because there was nobody or any equipment at the office.

With this development, Journalists are currently in the dark about the placement of the participating states on the medals table, as the 14-day sports fiesta enters its second day.

NAN also reports that the itinerary is not in conformity with the official programme of events, especially the stipulated date, time and venue for the events.

An official of the Main Organising Committee (MOC) who spoke to NAN on condition of anonymity said that the Games and Services personnel were still grappling with the nitty-gritty of the logistics at the Games.

According to him, "everything will be sorted out by Thursday and journalists can begin to come to the office to get up-to-date results of activities at the ongoing Games".

NAN reports that team Rivers, Ogun and Oyo won gold medals in the cycling event which held on Tuesday
