Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja

Vice President YemiOsinbajo on Monday evening received and subsequently handed over the Torch of Unity for the 19th National Sports Festival.

The sports festival holds in December in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The receiving and handing over of the torch was one of the highlights of the dinner and gala night held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja as part of activities marking the nation’s 58th independence anniversary.

The vice-president earlier received the Torch of Unity from the last host, Lagos State.

He thereafter handed it over to the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung.

Dalung, in turn, handed the torch over to the hosts of this year’s festival, the Federal Capital Territory.

The unity torch commenced its tour of the 36 states of Nigeria when it was handed over to the torch bearer.
