Benue Agog as NUGA Begins

Makurdi, the Benue State capital, was agog last Thursday when an awareness campaign was held to announce the 25th Nigeria Universities Games (NUGA) being hosted by the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi (FUAM).

The sports fiesta, which hosts over 1,000 athletes, was declared open yesterday. Staff and students turned out in their numbers to participate in a road show held on major highways and streets.

A convoy of seven buses conveyed the revellers around the campus and strategic locations in the city during the awareness campaign. Some employees and students said the large turnout was an indication that members of the school community were excited to host the games.

They expressed hope that the institution would put up a good performance and win trophies in the sporting fiesta.

The competition will last for 11 days.
