Things are really not going well with most of the states Contigents to this year’s National Youths Games, NYG as up till this moment the organizers have not provided accommodations for them.

Speaking with our correspondent one of the state officials who obviosly did not want the name on print lamented the condition the young athletes have been made to face in the name of participating in a tournament.

The official stated further that since their arrival they have been sleeping under the trees as the university where they normally camp is still been inhabited by the students who are still in session.

“I want to tell you that since we have been coming for this youth games this is the worst we have experienced. No proper arrengment by the organizers and the young girls and boys may be exposed to maleria as a result of mosquito bites.
