Oribhabor said that the hope and aspirations of many youths who are currently participating in the NSF would be dashed should the government renege on its promise to Edo.
“A promise is a hope, Nigeria Government must act now.
As concerned citizens, we are seriously embarrassed and disappointed to note that Nigeria Government has not shown serious capacity to fulfill her promise made to Edo State Government.
“This is national embarrassment. It’s frustrating, disappointing and great embarrassment to all Nigerians,” Oribhabor stated.
The group however commended Edo Government over its uncommon display and commitment to host the 20th NSF.
The Minister of Youth and Sport Development, Mr Sunday Dare, is yet to return calls and message sent to his line.
But the minister’s aide, John Akanji, referred NAN to the Secretary of the Main Organising Committee (MOC), Peter Nelson, for comments.
However, the MOC of the festival is also yet to react to the threat by Edo government to shutdown the NSF by noon on April 8. (NAN)
