Although we haven’t been able to do much due to paucity of funds, we will do those things that need urgent attention. I have already directed that equipment for training should be acquired and it is expected that they’ll be available soon,” observed the minister.He charged the athletes to take their training programme seriously as the Olympics will be a battle ground for world champions.“Having qualified, you need to train very well because you’re going to face other qualifiers.

Since we’ve not been able to improve on our facilities, we will make use of what we have for the first stage which will soon be over before exposing you to the second phase which will be outside the country.“I believe that the state of our facilities will be better before the next Olympics. Do not be discouraged because all your sacrifices are for the country. I wish you well and we will consider training tours that will be of comparative advantage to all athletes,” Dalung assured the athletes.The minister had a fortnight ago visited athletes in camp during training at the Abuja National Stadium.
