Preparations are in top gear for the 2016 editions of priests’ games. Priests are expected to compete in football, volleyball, tennis, table tennis and badminton on regional basis. The competition is touted to start late April or early May 2016.
For this year’s edition, each region is to hold intra regional play-off in Tennis, Table Tennis and Badminton to select their representatives for the inter-regional competitions. The aim is to get more priests involved in the exercise/fitness aim of the games. It is expected also to ensure fairness and transparency in choice of candidates for regional representation.
For the 2015 games, Chief Victor Umeh sponsored the football event which prize money has been fully redeemed and presented. Same goes for Volleyball sponsored by Senator Annie Okonkwo. Senator Chris Ngige sponsored the Tennis event which prize money is still being expected. Same goes for table tennis sponsored by Hon Valentine Ayika.
The details of the priests games 2016 will be communicated as soon the relevant logistics have been taken care of.
