The Chancellor in his remarks extolled the leadership platform of sports and encouraged students to embrace it, so as to build up their physical stamina for future exploits.

The games, which were organized primarily to foster inter-varsity friendship as well as to compliment the physical aspect of the University’s Total Man Concept curriculum, also attracted other dignitaries, including the Vice Chancellor, Prof Aize Obayan, the Registrar, Yemi Nathaniel, and several other faculty and staff.

 

Meanwhile, the athletes and officials from both Universities were treated to a get-together-dinner at the end of the events in appreciation of God for the success of the games. Also, on Sunday November 26, the visiting sportsmen and women worshipped alongside their host counterparts at the University Chapel.

 

In her remarks at a departure gathering organized for the visitors, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Aize Obayan, extolled the virtues of godly character, self-restraint, high sense of discipline and friendliness exhibited by the visitors. Members of the Bowen University, numbering about 115, were later presented with CU souvenirs.
