“Without giving them an approval they wouldn’t have come out to say they are coming to organise a marathon in Abuja so the first thing is the facilities which FCT have approved for them to use.

“The second thing is that FCT has approved the name of Abuja to be used for the marathon , I don’t think if they need any support that is more than those two important factors that has been approved by the FCT for them. 

“Our MOU has already been endorsed that is to tell you that FCT has given them all the necessary support that they required to have this marathon here in Abuja .

Every event that a Director is involved ; his involvement is to make that event to be best.
