AAUA NAMACOS Sports Director Urges Students to Embrace Sporting Activities

The Sports Director of the National Association of Mass Communication Students (NAMACOS), Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), Emmanuel Olowe, stressed the importance of students engaging in sporting activities as undergraduates.

At the first football training session, which was held at the AUD Primary School field on Saturday, 15 April 2023, Mr Olowe said that participation in sporting activities unlocks many opportunities. He harped on the need for better representation from each class.

“I appreciate NAMACOSITES for attending the training. I am using this medium to ask for your support to continue enjoying every bit of this action, especially for the 100-level students.

Speaking on his expectations in an interview, Olowe expressed positivity on the impact of the sports activities on the department, saying he believes in balancing academics with other activities.

He said: “Sports will aid the development of NAMACOSITES because the more active they are, the more it exposes them to greater paths that might help them outside academics.

The department has many sports-oriented personalities, and there is a need to work together for positivity.”

Speaking on the sports activities lined up for the fresh and returning students of the department, he said: “The new students will participate in freshers’ games at the faculty or Students’ Union levels.”

He further stated that both the fresh and returning students would compete in the “Head of Department’s Cup”, including athletics and football for both genders. 

“There is a need for proper representation and orientation of sportsmanship ideas to NAMACOSITES to shape them to have better representation outside the department,” he added.

Speaking with this reporter, some department students called for maximum support from the Head of the Department, lecturers, alumni, and concerned stakeholders. 

A final-year student of the department, Obasemo Pelumi, urged the department to take sports seriously. 

“I expect football players from each department to work hand in glove to attain our goal,” he said.

Similarly, a 300-level student, Oluwamuyiwa Abiodun, stressed the importance of sports to the human body, hence the need for the department to join hands in making things work.

Another student, Ayelabisi Olakunle, expressed joy as the new Sports Director kicked off the department training.

“It is great to participate in the first NAMACOSITE training, most importantly, to see NAMACOSITE players back on the pitch after the long break.”
