The Unity Schools Old Student Association (USOSA) is gearing up to host its second sports carnival, with the aim of fostering nationhood, unity, and social cohesion.

The President General, Michael Magaji announced during a news conference in Abuja that a golf tournament has been included in the competition to support the elderly.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 2024 theme of the sports carnival is tagged:” Reigniting Unity in Diversity ”.

Magaji said that the carnival, which would commence from April 22 and end on April 27, had drawn about 42 schools to participate in 14 games competitions.

“We are using sports as a tool to showcase unity, nationhood, and social cohesion among USOSANS and non-USOSANS.

“The sports carnival is part of our ‘project unite’ and this will look at the wellness, health, careers and different components of living.

“The carnival will bring together 3,000 USOSANS and 2,000 non-USOSANS. We are doing this to situate sports for nation building,” he said.

Chairman of the Local Organising Committee of the carnival, Mr Mohammed Mustapha, in a remark, said the association was working toward reviving sporting activities across schools in the country.

Mustapha urged sports stakeholders and other concerned Nigerians to collaborate in leveraging sports for national upliftment.

He also announced that there would be no age restrictions in the various sports competitions, which include badminton, volleyball, tug of war, sack race, and veteran race, among others.
