West Africa honours FASU Executive Board

Leopold Senghor, the SG of UASSU and 1st Vice-President of FASU, receives a medal of honour from the WAUG president

ENTEBBE - As an appreciation for the great support FASU has always offered to the West Africa University Games (WAUG), the outgoing president of WAUG Prof. Lasun Emiola, while presenting his final report of office to the FASU Executive Committee, awarded members honorary gold medals of participation in the 13th West Africa University Games.

Prof. Emiola, while presenting the medals at Lake Victoria Hotel Entebbe in Uganda, told the members that WAUG would not be where it is now if it was not for the great support of the FISU through FASU, the continental body.  “WAUG has always benefited from FISU’s generosity to Africa through FASU. We boost of the games attended by a large students’ community from the West African region. With the ongoing project of realignment of the region, under the support of FASU, I am sure we shall go a long way in promoting University Sports” Said Prof. Emiola 

While receiving the award, the 1st FASU Vice-President, Mr. Leopold Senghor was happy with the work of WAUG. The FASU President, who had personally graced the games thanked the regional body for the great work done, noting that it was such a great experience to have over forty University Vice chancellors sending goodwill messages to the host Vice Chancellor. With the indirect participation of the Vice Chancellors/Rectors it is hoped that most of them shall respond to our requests to attend the Rector’s forum in Sweden 11-14 June 2013.
