The Minister for Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has revealed government’s plan to celebrate sixty outstanding sports icons as part of Nigeria’s 60th Independence festivities.

The minister, who revealed this in Lagos yesterday at the launch the National Principals’ Cup competition, said from October one, the sixty icons would be showcased daily for their contributions to sports development in the last sixty years.

Dare said Nigerians will also be giving the opportunity to interact Live with the icons in a bid to inspire the younger generation to achieve their career goals.

Meanwhile, the organisers of the re-branded Principal’s Cup have also announced three ex-internationals, Daniel Amokachi, Joseph Dosu and Mary Onyali, as ambassadors for the competition.
