Festival:
Eko 2012
The National Sports Festival (NSF) was conceived as a
socio-psychological initiative to rebuild the psyche of the
Nigerian Nation which was traumatized by civil war in the
late 1960s.
The Sports Festival actually started in 1973 and has been
running till date. Except in 1983, 1987, 1993 and 1995, the
festival has been religiously held biennially as a multisports festival. The National Sports Festival has become a
veritable instrument for National Unity, cohesion, peace,
mutual understanding, friendship, cross-cultural affiliation
as well as other positive values.
So far, 17 editions of the NSF have come and gone, the last
one hosted by Rivers State, and each contributing to the
promotion of the spirit of the Games toward National
Development.
The 18th National Sports Festival tagged Eko 2012”
started on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 and ended
Sunday, December 9, 2012 in Lagos State.
Objectives of the NSF:
 The promotion of mass participation in sports from
the grassroots level throughout the country.
 The promotion of keen and healthy competition
amongst the competitors under an atmosphere of
sportsmanship and friendly interaction with a view
to enhancing and strengthening national unity.
 Identification of talents for further development.
 The provision of opportunities for hosting states to
acquire and upgrade sports facilities.
 The promotion of socio-cultural integration thereby
enhancing national unity.

The medals table have the following as top 10; Delta,
Rivers, Lagos, Edo, Ogun, Bayelsa, Ondo, Cross-River,
Akwa-Ibom and Oyo. However, in terms of Return on
investment (Medals to Athletes ratio); States like Ogun
and Akwa-Ibom lost out in the race.
 The Medals table shows the 6 South South States
among the Top 10 States, while 4 of the South West
States accounted for the remaining.
 The best placed South East States is Imo while
Plateau emerged the best in the North Central.
In order to maximize the results of this Festival; each
Athlete from States with competitive advantage in
respective Sports should be actively engaged with
quality training programmes focusing on up-coming
Africa and other International competitions with the
aim of Team Nigeria presenting the best in the 2016
Olympic games.
These are potential Olympic
materials if well harnessed!
