Federation vice-president Abba Mohammed-Inuwa told the (NAN) at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Monday that the federation is considering the state as the host of future championships.
“I would like to express our gratitude to the government and people of Edo State for providing this advanced equipment.
“This equipment is very sophisticated and I am convinced that it is the first of its kind in West Africa as a whole.
“Yesterday (Sunday) we were here with the Deputy Governor (Philp Shaibu) for over an hour and we informed him of our intention to use this facility as a national camp, where we will be camping our athletes.
“And we are even asking for the cooperation and support of the Edo State government so that we can host championships, nationally and internationally, in Edo State.”
“This is the only way we can have fit and trained athletes in Nigeria who can represent this country at future events.
“He told us that Edo State was going to work with the federation to ensure that these facilities are used,” he said.
NAN reports that the gymnastics event which is still going on at the festival is scheduled to end on Tuesday. (NOPE)
