A total of 30 schools from across the country will fight for honours at a maiden Sports Carnival being organised by the Unity Schools Old Students Association (USOSA).
The event will hold on May 6 at the Cricket Oval of Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Lagos.
President General of USOSA, Mike Magaji, stated that the sports carnival is being organised by the old students to promote excellence, love and unity, which Unity schools in Nigeria are known for.
According to him, the Sports Carnival, which is tagged: ‘Diversity, Equity, Unity In Sports’, will see the old students, male and female, compete in five-a-side football, volleyball, table tennis, 100m, 400m, scrabble, ludo and tug of war.
Also speaking, chairman of the Local Organising Committee (LOC), Chinedu Okoli, said that the carnival is mainly to mentor the new generation of students in the 110 Unity Schools across the country on the need to show love to one another.
He revealed that trophies would be awarded to best-performing schools, and medals will be given to individuals who performed well.
Four old students, Uyi Apata (President of Nigeria Cricket Federation), Musa Ahmadu (former Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation), Francis Orbih (President of Badminton Federation of Nigeria) and Musa Kida (President of Basketball Federation) will be honoured at the carnival for their contributions to sports development in the country.
