Idris told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Jalingo said the renovation of the facility was expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2014.

“The Minister of Sports/NSC Chairman has directed that the renovation of the Gembu camp should be given utmost priority.

“The Stadium and Facilities Department of the commission has been mandated to ensure that the camp is in good shape for visiting athletes, come 2014,” he said.

The zonal co-ordinator said the inability to utilise the facility had led all the problems the country has had in athletics.

“The mountainous nature of Gembu has made the camp very suitable for endurance training.

“When training fully resumes in the camp, Nigeria will continue to produce athletes that can compete effectively both nationally and internationally,” he said.(NAN)
