Sources close to the organizers of the popular May Day Sports, yesterday told The Point that the annual workers’ day sports will go ahead, on May 1 as usual.

There have been doubts about the event, in the wake of the current legal tussle between the GNOC, the organizers, and some of its members over the now delayed elections.

However, a credible source said the political matters have nothing to do with the activities of the May Day.

Meanwhile, according to other sources, preparatory meetings are being held with companies on the modalities of the May Day Sports, suggesting the event is very much on course.

It has been reported that since the Independence Stadium track is under repairs, this year’s May Day sports would be staged at the July 22 Square in Banjul.

May Day is the most popular local sporting event, with its unique features and exciting ambiance enjoyed by workers from all sectors of the Gambian economy.
