The Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, has tasked Team Nigeria contingent to fly high and achieve podium performances at the forthcoming 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, France.

He made these remarks yesterday in Abuja during the official handover and farewell ceremony of the contingent to the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In his address, Senator Enoh urged the contingent to strive for podium performance at the Games, emphasizing the importance of hard work and dedication.

“The President has approved the entire budget for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, so it is up to us to try to reciprocate the goodwill of the President and give him reasons to continue to do more. It is not the first time he has done this. In December, he did the same for our male and female football teams by paying backlogs of salaries. He has done the same for our contingent going to the Olympics and Paralympics.”

Senator Enoh also highlighted the importance of the foreign training tours for different sports, aimed at ensuring the physical, technical, and tactical readiness of the athletes for the Games.

“Given the effort of both the Government and the Ministry, as well as well-meaning agencies, it is important that the athletes involved in this national call of duty regard themselves as performing an ambassadorial function, as ambassadors of Nigeria.

“Our expectations are high, and given my interactions with our athletes, I have no doubt that these expectations will be met,” he added.
