The 20th National Sports Festival, Edo 2020, has been postponed till next year.
This is the second time the event is being moved by the Ministry of Sports and Youth Development.
It is understood the postponement was because the ministry did not get approval from the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to hold the multi-sports competition.
The National Sports Festival, was initially scheduled to hold in March in Benin, Edo State but was postponed till December due to the outbreak of COVID-19, which also affected social and economic activities.
Delta State are the defending champions of the National Sports Festival following their spectacular show at the last edition held in Abuja.
