Fernando Elísio Freire made this appeal in his speech to commemorate the National Day of Sport, which is marked on the second Sunday of November, 12, where he also mentioned that sportsmen understand the values of honesty, fair play and teamwork.
“The Government has determined that sport is, and should be inclusive and reach all citizens and all corners of the country, regardless of the conditions of each and each locality,” he said.
