The Ogun State contingent to the centenary games will start camping on October 7. Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Dr. Lanre Tejuoso, disclosed this during a meeting with the sporting Association’s chairmen in preparation for the Games.

He lauded the chairmen for their ingenuity, adding that, “I am aware that a lot of associations have started sponsoring competitions and open camping with athletes with vigorous training while some are about to start with their camping earlier than the State scheduled time”. Tejuoso said since the inauguration of the associations, Team Ogun sub committees have swung into action for the successful outing of the state at the Games.
“It is worthy to mention that the technical committee of team Ogun conducted trials in all individual games that Ogun State is going to feature at the festival for the selected athlete. Also the technical committees have spoken and reaching agreement with elite athletes that can win gold medals for Ogun State,” Tejuoso said.
Earlier in his address, Chairman Ogun State House of Assembly Committee on Sports and Chairman of Hockey Association in the State, Hon. Allen Taylor said early camping would be of better advantage for the State’s contingent, so as to perform credibly at the festival. He highlighted the need to expose the local athletes to various international competitions.
Falilat Ogukoya-Omotayo, chairman of the state Athletics Association urged the State Government to help motivate the athletes by organizing various local competitions which would put them in good stead for the National Sports Festival slated for November in Calabar, Cross River State.
