NUGA 2018: UNILAG aims to host 2018 Games

The University of Lagos is bidding to host the 26th Nigeria University Games Association (NUGA) competition in 2018. Rahaman Bello, the outgoing Vice Chancellor of the institution, made this known at a forum recently.

Prof. Bello, whose tenure as UNILAG's VC expired on Saturday (11/11/2017), said that the move was part of the institution’s strategy to strengthen its sports centre and make more impact in sports.

“There are lots of activities ongoing to restructure University of Lagos Sport Centre. Most of the dilapidated structures are being revived. As a University, we put resources proportionally in all facets. We have so many issues to contend with; we have not put sports aside. Although we did not win the last NUGA games, we were not far below in ranking. We were in the fourth position".

Recall that the University of Port Harcourt won 150 medals to emerge the overall best in the 25th NUGA held at the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi from April 22 to April 29.
Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, emerged 2nd, while Benson Idahosa University came 3rd. while UNILAG secured the 4th position with 20 medals made up of 9 Gold, 4 Silver and 7 Bronze. 57 Universities (including Akwa Ibom State University) contested for medals at the sports fiesta.
