This year’s event was hosted by the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria from 31st October. A total of 42 Universities took part this year.
Our beloved University was a participant in a good number of the disciplines.

WAUG, the Olympics Games of West Africa students, is the biggest and most competitive games among West African students. The WAUG Games are aimed at fostering greater friendship among youths of the West African sub-region in addition to providing an opportunity for West African Universities to contribute to the development of highly skilled elite athletes among their students as done by Universities all over the world.

At present, Fourteen (14) West Africa Countries are active members of WAUG, represented by about 60 Universities. Only Cape Verde, Gambia, and Mauritania are not represented yet in WAUG. So, literarily the WAUG Games can be called the ECOWAS Students Games. The Universities are grouped into eight (8) zones geographically according to the number of Member Universities. WAUG therefore rotates zones which will host the Games.
