LOC adopts Queen Idah as face of Edo 2020 National Sports Festival


The Local Organizing Committee for the 2020 National Sports Festival ( NSF) has adopted Queen Idah as the face of the festival. It has also named Bet9ja as official betting company for the festival.  

The chairman of the Publicity and Communications Sub-Committee, Mr. Tony Akiotu, who is also the Group Managing Director of Daar Communications, at the weekend in Benin explained, “Queen Idah was chosen during the last meeting of the Main Organizing Committee and the choice was a unanimous one.”

Akiotu also disclosed that Bet9ja has been officially chosen as the betting company of the festival having met the Marketing Sub-Committee’s requirement. 

“Bet9ja is the official betting company of the Edo 2020 National Sports Festival. The company’s bid of N1 billion has been accepted. 


“Aside Bet9Nja, the marketing department is working round the clock to raise enough money for the hosting of the festival,” he said.

He also disclosed that a theme song for the festival, which was sang in the three major languages in Edo State, has also been chosen

“The LOC has chosen a theme song sang by the Edo State chapter of PMAN in Bini, Esan and Afenmai. It is a well orchestrated song that will be loved by all when it is eventually launched on October 17 and 28 in Benin City and Lagos respectively.”

Akiotu added that in picking the theme song, the rich culture of Edo State, particularly Benin, was put into consideration. 

He added that the NTA, DAAR Communications, Edo Broadcasting Service (EBS) and Super Sports have been chosen as the official broadcast stations of the National Sports Festival. 

“We have carefully selected the NTA, DAAR Communications, EBS and Super Sports as official broadcasters for Nigeria’s biggest and best Games. We are also going to involve all the major newspapers, magazines and bloggers to make it the best ever in the history of the NSF,” he stressed.
