As the 2012 London Olympics Games approaches, the Nigeria Olympic Committee, NOC and the Nigeria Football and other Sports Supporters Club have concluded plans to hold the Olympic Day Awareness on 23 June in Lagos.
With the Games opening ceremony holding on 27 July at the Olympic Stadium in London, the NOC is not losing sight of the task of creating the needed awareness that would help to drive home the Olympic message of regular exercise in the life of people and in fulfillment of this objective. Both parties at a meeting held at the conference room of the NOC secretariat in Lagos, pledged to do everything within their powers to ensure that the objectives of the programme were achieved.
President of the Nigeria Sports for All Commission, Dr. Jonathan Nnaji and the President-General of the Supporters Club, Dr. Rafiu Ladipo, both declared that clubs, corporate organisations and captains of industries have been enlisted to participate in the Olympic Day Awareness. Nnaji, who is also the 1st Vice-President of the NOC and President of Taekwondo Federation of Nigeria, said the Olympic Day Awareness was designed to sensitise the Nigerian public on the need to keep fit always.
