The Presidential reception for the victorious Team Nigeria athletes to the just concluded 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham has been scheduled to hold on Thursday, September 15, 2022, at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
The Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare who disclosed this on Friday, August 19 in his office in Abuja, stated that this is in recognition of the historic performance of the Team, which is the best since 1950 (72 years ago) when Nigeria first participated at the Games, which led to President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval that a special reception is held in their honour.
Dare stated further that the event is also part of the country’s way of appreciating the Team’s great act of sacrifice, patriotism and determination, demonstrated at the Games which has brought Nigeria into a positive global focus.
