Facilities for 25th NUGA will be ready, says UniAgric VC

THE 25th edition of the Nigeria University Games (NUGA) billed for the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State may still be nine months away, but Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Emmanuel Iornumbe Kucha, has said that his institution would not wait till the last minutes to get all the facilities needed in place. It will hold in November.

Prof. Kucha, while fielding questions on the state of readiness of the university for the Games, noted that there was absolutely no reason for the NUGA Council to have doubts over their readiness, as work is already in progress to ensure that construction of the facilities commence by March.

  “We’ll do the Games and very well too. NUGA Council had their meeting here in Makurdi and I must say that the outcome was not bad from what the NUGA president, secretary and the LOC chairman reported to me.

  “The council saw what we have on ground with a promise that work would soon commence on the other facilities. We bided for this NUGA hosting and we’re not joking about it. That is why as soon as we got it, we started preparing for it.

  “As a government establishment, there are processes that   must be followed. As we speak, processes for some of the facilities to come on board are already on and I can assure you that our October target of all the facilities being on ground and ready for use will be achieved,” he said.
