Despite reports emanating across the media that team Oyo has been disqualified from the 20th National Sports Festival, the General Manager of the Oyo State Sports Council, Mr. Gboyega Makinde has debunked such claims.
Widespread reports had it that the first batch of team Oyo that arrived in Edo on Friday were disqualified because they failed to provide their COVID-19 vaccination card and testing results.

In line with this, Oyo State have fulfilled all the procedures and ensured that Team Oyo athletes pass through all the guidelines of covid 19, Hence, They will be part of the National Sports Festival.
