The Honourable Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh has commended the participants at the ongoing National Youth Games.
A statement on Friday signed by Enoh, in Abuja, expressed delight over the number of emerging talents being discovered.
Senator Enoh stated that the Games is staying true to its purpose of providing a platform for young talents to be unearthed.
He noted that talents are not in short supply in the country, what is needed is the platform for visibility.
He stressed that the ministry is not oblivious of this need, and his administration is determined to make available these platforms across the federation.
"This edition of the National Youth Games has given visibility to very talented kids that represent the future of our sports as a nation.
"Availability of talents has never been a problem for our sports, but instead, the provision of platforms for these talents to be seen has remained our Achilles heel," the Minister said.
"This administration is committed to ensuring that platforms are available for budding stars, especially in our rural areas.
"While our elite athletes continue to make us proud, we want to guarantee the future by creating a production pipeline for emerging talents to come through, transition, get nurtured and collect the baton when the time is right on the elite stage," Senator Enoh concluded.
