Just as Nigerians pour out to to ensure the positive values of the Olympic Movement – Excellence, Friendship and Respect are promoted, Nigerians in all other states would be celebrating the Olympic Day too in their states.

Former Olympian and Chairman of NOC Sports Commission, Henry Amike who has been working tirelessly to encourage young and old alike to get involved in the Olympic Day for sport, cultural and educational activities said that they would also uphold the three pillars of Olympic Day which are Move, Learn and Discover.
”This time, we’re involving Schools and their pupils knowing that tomorrow belongs to them. Starting from June 30 to July 2, art exhibitions, paintings, drama will be staged by the students and their schools under the supervision of Sports For All Officials. It’s not something to miss. You know that sports is live”, Amike a former record holder for Nigeria said.
