football, tennis, track and field event and volleyball.

TALENT DISCOVERY CENTER: badminton, chess, scrabble, swimming, table tennis


Most of the Universities that took part in the events did not compete in all the games. Afe Babalola University was the only University that presented athletes in all the games. Ben Idahosa University has a lot of experience in terms of past events and current rating in NUGA and NPUGA. They also used state and national athletes which are not good enough for the competition at this level. Lead City University had a lot of old and experienced athletes, including state and national athletes.

Redeemers, Nigerian Turkish, McPherson and other universities came with very young and talented student’s athletes but couldn’t make much difference, but they are faithful to the standard of the competition. Kwararafa University came to observe. Oduduwa University students also put in their best which is encouraging. Igbinedion University concentrated on athletics. Babcock University maintained their reputation. Bells University put up a good sportsmanship spirit but AL Hikma University could not. Afe Babalola university students did not disappoint the founder of the university. All other universities that came for the competition tried but the best will always be on top.


The medical contingency was led by the medical director Mrs. Jubilee. There were two stations available during the events for first aid while the ambulance was available and was used to convey more severe cases to the clinics for proper attention. Their impact was felt mostly during the athletics events where they had to come in to revive some athletes.


Mr. Ibikunle Ajisafe and his team was the talk of the events. The events were covered successfully with some professional touches. Several catching postal were pasted at strategic position while advert were on in EKTV and NTA Ado-Ekiti. ...read more
