• University of Nigeria To Host West African University Games (WAUG) Competition

    The West African University Games Competition popularly known among university students as WAUGA will be hosted this year in Nigeria by the University of Nigeria Nsukka.

    According to the information available on the university’s website, the games are tentatively scheduled to take place in the month of May 2013.

    The School’s  Sports Director, Mr. Godwin Ogbobe explained that the right to host WAUG competition was attracted to the University because of the dynamic approach and passion of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof, Bartho Okolo, for sports, which he manifested when he served as the Coordinator of the 2008 NUGA competition hosted by the UNN. The game, according to him, was unprecedented in the history of NUGA competitions and was widely adjudged to be the best hosted in the country.

    Also he said that the hosting right was granted to the University because of the availability of sporting facilities, including a good stadium with tartan tracks, standard hockey pitches and a swimming pool, which he said were very rare to find in other universities in the country.
    Further, Mr. Ogbobe said that apart from the 145 universities in Nigeria, about 53 to 70 other universities, drawn from both Francophone and Anglophone countries in West Africa, are expected to take part in the competition, which will officially last for 10 days.
