Traditional Sports Federation of Nigeria (TSFN) says its under-17 traditional sports tournament will hold in Abuja from June 25 to July 1.
The Secretary-General of the federation, Etim Udokang, told newsmen in Abuja that the tournament would feature ‘Ayo’ and ‘Kokawa‘ events.
He said the tournament, which would be its maiden edition, would have each state sending five athletes.
“We want states to use the tournament as a national trial for the National Youth Games (NYG), slated for Ilorin in September.
“The event is also geared at reawakening the interest of young athletes in the sport,’’ the TSFN secretary-general said.
