“As a president looking after the students I must applaud the (my) students for their time and commitment throughout the week-long event.
“I appreciate the students for showing interest in sports which is good. It refrain them from involving in unwanted social activities or unlawful activities but give them the opportunity to participate in sports which is healthy.”
He added that the event (Inter-tertiary games) is marked as one of the very important date in the campus calendar as they are looking forward for every year.
