THE FOOTBALLER VICE-CHANCELLOR DISPLAYS AT THE MAIDEN UNIVERSITY STAFF TOURNAMENT
The Vice-Chancellor of Alex Ekwueme, Federal University, Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi State, Nigeria, Prof. Chinedum Nwajiuba, yesterday, 21st March, 2019, displayed energy and talent at the university football play ground while featuring in the on-going maiden university staff inter-faculty/units football tournament.
The day’s match was between the Vice-Chancellor’s office team and that of Humanities/ Management and Social Sciences. The Vice-Chancellor entered the pitch at the second half to the excitement of spectators who were thrilled by his appearance in full sports attire as a ‘star’ player for his team. The match stood at draw till the master dribbler Chinedum Nwajiuba scored the “winning” penalty shoot-out at zero minute to go, to the applaud of spectators who sang the winning song around with him for his fitness in the pitch and for scoring a goal.
Many of the staff who were interviewed expressed delight that their youthful and energetic Vice-Chancellor was around to play with his staff. No wonder the saying that “all work and no play make … a dull man”. Watch out for updates on the tournament.
