Committee secretary Peter Nelson said this during an interview with the Nigeria News Agency (NAN) on Wednesday in Benin.
Nelson described the festival as an awe-inspiring festival with fantastic, state-of-the-art facilities that have stood the test of time.
According to him, the ground installations are avant-garde that the majority of athletes have not seen in their various states.
“I’m very impressed. What we have seen in Edo is fantastic.
“Most of the ground facilities are state of the art facilities that stand the test of time and most of our athletes, the majority of them haven’t seen these facilities from their various states, very few have. .
“Using it for the very first time, they saw the difference and it is very appreciated for all the efforts that Edo has put in place.
“I must admit that it is a sporting festival never to be forgotten by all who were present,” he said.
Regarding complaints and petitions, Nelson noted that these were inevitable things that would inevitably happen in competitions of this magnitude.
The MOC scribe, however, explained that the complaints were minimal for media discussion.
“I’ll tell you that there were complaints in terms of disciplinary action, little brawl. These are inevitable things that are sure to happen. It happens, but you don’t pronounce it.
“It’s not a thing to discuss because it’s just tiny issues that actually happen, and that’s why I’ve told you over and over again that this festival is a festival to never be forgotten.
“Heads weren’t rolling; things were going well; the facilities were fantastic, the refereeing officials with the current state-of-the-art rules that are used internationally were the people we invited to officiate.
“So the element of bias was very minimal, but remember there was no bias.
“The petitions have been dealt with and it’s a good festival,” said the senior MOC official. (NOPE)
