The athletes were entertained by a dance troupe from the Munujali tribe.

Preceding the performance, athletes watched from the sideline as the Nigerian flag was raised and the National Anthem sung. A commemorative indigenous shield was presented to the Minister of Youth and Sports Barrister Solomon Dalung while Team Nigeria in return presented the talking drum to their hosts.
