The Director General of the National Sports Commission, Al-Hassan Yakmut, has declared that second position at the just concluded 11th African Games in Congo Brazzaville is not the best for the nation’s sports.
Reflecting on the outing in Congo, Yakmut says finishing second behind Egypt was not the best, adding, “The presidency actually wanted team Nigeria to finish on top of the medal’s table.”
Yakmut said team Nigeria would pay attention to other Multi-medal sports such as swimming and fencing.
Meanwhile, the NSC is said to be waiting for the presidency on its request to host athletes and officials of team Nigeria to the just concluded games in Congo.
