Already, athletes and officials of the various states have started arriving for the ceremonial procession.

From the itinerary made available to PREMIUM TIMES, there would be hoisting of the Festival flag, address by the FCT Minister, Muhammed Bello; and also the Nigeria Olympic President.

While some performances are expected, no 'A' artiste is listed to perform. The last National Sports Festival was held six years ago.
