UNILAG And LASU Team Up For 2024 African University Games


In an unprecedented move, the University of Lagos (UNILAG), and Lagos State University (LASU) have forged a partnership to jointly host the upcoming All Africa Universities Games (FASU) in September.

This collaboration marks Nigeria’s second time of hosting the prestigious 53-year-old sporting event, and a historic first with two universities from the same state sharing hosting responsibilities.

Forming a unified committee with representatives from both institutions, UNILAG and LASU are committed to ensuring the seamless organisation, and success of the event.

During a joint seminar held at LASU, attended by Vice-Chancellors Professor Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello (LASU), and Professor Folasade Ogunsola (UNILAG), gratitude was expressed to the Lagos State government and other stakeholders for their support.

Professor Olatunji-Bello highlighted the event’s importance in promoting sports and celebrating Africa’s diverse talents, expressing confidence in the committee’s ability to deliver a memorable tournament.

Echoing this sentiment, Professor Ogunsola emphasised the joint effort’s aim to make this edition of the FASU games the most successful yet, underscoring the significance of collaboration in nurturing Africa’s youth.

To prepare committee members for their roles, former NUGA Secretary-General Professor Iyiola Oni, and Professor Clement Fasan will provide guidance and support, ensuring they are well-equipped for the tasks ahead.
