He added that athletes are not only preparing for the Games in Birmingham but also for the 2021 Islamic Solidarity Games to hold from August 9 to 18 in Konya, Turkey.

“The athletes are expected to go to Birmingham and give their best to make Nigeria proud. And not only are they preparing for the Games in Birmingham, but also Islamic Solidarity Games

“We have already named all the athletes going both to Birmingham and Konya. The athletes are already collecting their visas and we have gone very far as regards that. Already, we have the list of all the athletes that we will be taking to the two games.

“We do not have any problem as many of our athletes have already done their biometrics, so we don’t have any problem,” he stated.
