Prof. Fagbohun, SAN, notes that the victorious team’s showing has gone a long way to further prove that LASU’s gradual and steady rise to the summit of league of Universities in Nigeria is not a fluke, but a testament of the institution’s ability to compete and win in every sphere.
In his words, “This shows that what we can do in academics, as clearly expressed in our status as Africa Centre of Excellence, we can also do in sports.”

I want to assure you that the University Management will give you all necessary support as you will be representing Africa at the world stage in Russia later this year. Congratulations!”
