According to Ogundipe, Unilag VC, aside from the other numerous gains, NUGA 2022 will, more importantly, be showcasing the schools’ unique breed of students to the rest of the world.

“NUGA Games is about our students and we want to showcase UNILAG students as one of the best all over the world in terms of sports, academics, innovation and in the area of entrepreneurship,” he said.

Mr Olorunnimbe, the founder and chief executive officer of The Temple Company, said UNILAG is raising the bar for the Games.

“I am excited for the Nigerian youths. Luckily, we have another four months to prepare for the Games, which is in March. The facilities are currently being upgraded. Since UNILAG is hosting, Lagos is hosting; so, we are going to use the state’s facilities … It is definitely going to be UNILAG like never before,” he stated.

“Let’s bring those glory days back; the University of Lagos gave us Adokie Amiesimaka, Adeolu Adekola and others, University of Ibadan gave us Mutiu Adepoju, Edith Agoye and others…

“In athletics, our universities provided us with Enefiok Udobong, Olusoji Fasuba, Ambrose Ezenwa, Bisi Afolabi and very recently Enoch Adegoke, who got to the finals of the 100 metres men’s event at the Tokyo Olympics.

“In Basketball, there is Olumide Oyedeji, in Taekwondo, there is a Chika Chukwumerije who is an Olympic medalist.”
