“The Minister only directed us to shift arrival day by two days, for those who have not arrived, because of the non availability of hostels, due to the ongoing exam by University of Ilorin students.

“We have given the states that have arrived their accommodations, we are only concerned about those who are yet to arrive.

“The Minister also said that those who are yet to arrive or who have not left their states to wait an extra two days for the hostels to be available before they arrive” Durotoye said.

The games are billed to hold at the Sports facilities of the University of Ilorin.
