Poor Organization in Asaba as Athletes suffer in camp


Athletes at the ongoing 2022 National Sports Festival are no longer finding it rosy in Asaba at their camp.

Those from Kwara State, Gombe, Lagos and Osun are being camped at NYSC camp in Issele-Uku where there is currently no water for the athletes.

The Athletes after thorough and busy day would have to wake up in the morning and start walking around looking for water. 

Serious shortage of water have made cleaning, washing and bathing difficult for athletes from the States listed above. 

The environment at the camp is not even conductive for the athletes as there is high tendency of them contracting infections. 

Interestingly, athletes also enjoy only 2 hours of electricity in a day at their camp in what can be described as a tough situation for those who are the primary actors of the Festival.

Annoyingly, there are also no enough vehicles at the Issele-Uku camp as Athletes would have to engage themselves in serious tussles before boarding to Asaba.

As at Monday morning, some athletes sustained minor injuries while trying to board limited available vehicles that will convey them to Asaba which is one hour journey.

Two Kwara athletes have already fallen sick due to the serious stress in camp and this will definitely affect their performances in the games.

It can be said that the Delta have been a bad host for this year's National Sports Festival as they are being nonchalant about the welfares of the Athletes in Issele-Uku.
