The Chancellor of Gregory University Uturu Dr Gregory Ibe has advocated the application of sports as a veritable instrument of national
unity,cohesion and economic empowerment.

Speaking during a ceremony  marking the formal hand over of prizes to winners in the first GUU Super Four football league competition that
took place recently in the University sports complex,Dr Ibe went down memory lane to reveal his love and passion for soccer which underscored
his support for and sponsorship of the game at local,state and national levels.

According to him”our love for the round leather game dates back to the days when we singlehandedly sponsored Team ABSU to many editions of NUGA  games before we were inspired to build this sports complex as a forerunner to the establishment of GUU”.

Speaking further he said “since then this complex has played host to notable state and national teams,thus providing the much needed platform
for people from different tribes,races and religions to unite in the name of sports”.

He therefore commended the different teams that participated in the soccer tournament and enjoined the school management to facilitate the
commencement of similar competitions in such other games as basketball,volleyball,badminton, lawn tennis,athletics and table tennis.

Earlier in an address the acting Vice Chancellor of GUU Prof Vincent Imo congratulated the students for their high display of sportsmanship and
soccer artistry.He pledged the preparedness of the university management to support the teams to participate in state and national competitions.

Prizes were later presented to the participating teams and outstanding players by principal officers of the university while Dr Ibe handed over
the covered trophy to Uturu Lions FC who emerged over all champions.

It will be recalled that the management of Gregory University Uturu recently commenced the super four league football competition as a way
of encouraging the development of team spirit and good sportsmanship among  students.
