The authorities of the University of Ilorin, in the past few months, have invested to the tune of N442 million in sporting infrastructure and facilities as the  university prepares for the 13th edition of the West Africa University Games (WAUG).

The vice chancellor, Professor Is-haq Oloyede, gave this disclosure while addressing a press conference at the Kwara State Government House recently, to formally announce the new date of the games.

According to the vice chancellor, who was flanked on the occasion by  principal officers, deans and directors of the university, the new facilities were provided, while others were either renovated or expanded

Professor  Oloyede noted that WAUG could not go  ahead with its plans on the previous date because it clashed with the games of the Ghanaian universities as Ghana is crucial to the games.

He disclosed that  WAUG leadership met at the University of Ilorin on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 and ratified the proposal of the university concerning the games, which has been rescheduled to start on Tuesday, March 27 and end on Friday, April 6, 2012.
