As part of valedictory activities in honour of the outgoing Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos professor Rahamon Bello, the university management over the weekend organised novelty matches which saw team “Management” competing against team “Deans of faculties”, in a game that eventually saw the former defeat the latter.
Other fixtures were between Academic and Non-academic staff Teams as well as one between the university’s female team, UNILAG Angels and the Medical Students Team from Idi Araba campus.
During a kick-off ceremony, the Outgoing Vice Chancellor appreciated management for putting up what he described as, a well packaged football event. He further thanked the organisers for the effort put in to celebrate him, saying the event was an indication that the institution is peaceful and united.
The match between the management team and Deans of Faculties ended goalless after full time but the management team went on to win 2-1 on penalties.
Other matches involved UNILAG Angels against Idi-Araba, which ended in 1-1 daw, while the one between Academic and Non-academic staff ended goalless.
