Lagos State Commissioner for Sports, Waheed Enitan-Oshodi, has said that the only feasible threat to Team Lagos are Teams Rivers and Delta.
According to him, Team Lagos came prepared. Lagos State had so far won two gold medals in Judo and Taekwondo at the ongoing National Sports Festival (NSF).
‘’Team Delta and Team Rivers we hear claim they came into Eko 2012 to prove a point, but Lagos State is ready to take them on,’’ the commissioner told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Lagos on the sideline of the ongoing 18th National Sports Festival.
On their prospects at the medal table, Enitan-Oshodi said they were impressed at results being posted at the preliminary stages so far.
“I think that will have to go between Delta and Rivers state, the defending champion.“Delta claims they were cheated at Rivers State, no evidence of that.? I think both of them are coming here to prove who is the best state in the nation.? “But I think we will give them something to think about. “Well you know the competition so far so good we are still in the group stages in many tournaments in early stages. “I think we are quite satisfied with what we have seen so far it’s very exciting. “Lagos State’s prospects we are hopeful. You know this is a very strong competition.
“I think we are competitive so far we have seen that we can do it and we are hopeful that we will finish high up,? on the table.’’
Team Lagos had finished 9th at the “Garden City Games’’, in Port Harcourt, with 16 gold 16 silver and 29 bronze at the previou festival.
