The Minister of Sports Development, John Enoh, has charged Nigerian athletes to make significant impact as the track and field event of the ongoing African Games starts today Monday.

Enoh stated this on Sunday in Accra when he visited the athletes ahead of the commencement of the highly anticipated track and field events.

Nigeria with a formidable contingent of 54 top athletes will be hoping to boost their medal haul when they hit the tracks, as he expressed confidence in the team’s ability to make Nigeria proud, urging them not to waiver in their pursuit of excellence and dominance over rival teams like Egypt.
