JAMB Tertiary Institutions Football Tournament to Hold Despite ASUU Strike
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded plans to hold its tertiary institutions football competition that was to hold at University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) and the Kwara Football Academy despite the ongoing ASUU Strike.
16 Tertiary Institutions were billed to participate in the competition which was billed to hold between August 20th and August 27th.
Jimoh Bashir, the Media Coordinator for the tournament, said in a statement on Thursday in Ilorin that the participants were drawn from universities, polytechnics and colleges of education across the country.
The indefinite strike by ASUU, he said, would not affect the tournament billed for between Aug. 20 and Aug. 27.
The matches, he added, would hold at both the University of Ilorin and Kwara Football Academy.
Bashir also said the Main Organising Committee had inspected the facilities on Wednesday ahead of the commencement of the competition.
He said Mr Kale Ayo, the Head of the inspection team and Kwara Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, had led other members to inspect the pitches, hostels and medical facilities.
Ayo, after the inspection, expressed satisfaction with the level of preparation.
