Prof. Rahaman Bello,the outgoing Vice-Chancellor stated at a forum in Lagos that the University of Lagos ( Unilag ) will try to host the 26th Nigeria University Games 2018. He said that the essence of it was part of the institution’s tactics to 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.
“That we did not win in the NUGA games does not mean we have not been winning laurels. We won the basketball and two or four major events,” he said.
