Akinbulumo said the state does not dump her athletes like other states do, and that that has been responsible for the level of consistency the state has enjoyed in terms of athletes’ performance in recent times.

“Our athletes are intact and rearing to go. They know what is expected of them and we do our best to make them feel superior and respected in Lagos. We are looking forward to a remarkable Sports Festival and we hope to have the best of everything, accommodation, transportation, and others. We had a great time in Rivers State and I hope Lagos will do better,” she said.
