Zamfara State is to represent Northwestern Zone in three different games in the forthcoming National Sports Festival to hold between March 22 and April 1st, 2020 in Edo State.

 

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Directorate of Sports, Alhaji

Ahmad Bagu made the disclosure in an interview with our reporter in

Gusau recently.

 

Bagu said the state had won the Zonal competition that took place in

Birnin of Kebbi, Kebbi State in three games out of seven which include: Basketball male team first position, Volleyball female team second position and Cricket female team also second position.

 

He said the success of the state teams was attributed to constant supervision embarked by the directorate right from his assumption of office.

 

He said: “Our administration met the state stadium in a poor condition which resulted in the state playing all its games away.

 

“Even though plans are under way by the state government to construct a new stadium of 25,000 capacity however, the directorate is putting all its best to repair the existing ones,” he noted.

 

He said the directorate is equally determined to improve the welfare of the state players in various games.
