- Says feat a sign of schools prowess in sports.
The University of Port Harcourt Alumni Association says the back to back victory of TEAM UNIPORT in the just concluded Nigeria University Games, NUGA, is a feat worthy of celebration.
According to the National President of the Association, Chief Chris Adokeme, the success was a testimony that the International Association of Athletics Federation’s designation of the University as a Centre of Sporting Excellence was not misplaced.
The Association said the victorious athletes are worthy ambassadors of UNIPORT, adding that they are truly Unique in line with the slogan of the institution.
The alumni body commended the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Ndowa Lale for creating the enabling environment which allowed the students to perform optimally.
Adokeme said the association will collaborate with the institution in organizing a befitting reception for the all conquering heroes.
In addition, the National President said some spaces will be reserved for the athletes in the scholarship scheme of the alumni body.
