Edo State says despite the challenges facing Nigeria, the country has come to stay as one united entity

Obaseki said this on Sunday when he received the Torch of Unity for the 20th National Sports Festival (NSF) at the Government House in Benin City.

“We also want to make a statement that we have not been overcome by this pandemic. Despite the pandemic, we must continue to do the things we need to do to keep life going,” he said when he received the torch from the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, represented by the Ministry’s South-South Director of Sports, Peter Nelson.

“For us as a country, we have come to stay as one united, indivisible entity. We have our challenges, but I see this festival as a stepping stone. We would go through this stage and get out stronger and better.”
