Rivers State University of Science and Technology, RSUST is set to launch itself among sporting educational institutions in Nigeria by laying foundations toward uplifting its profile in Sports.
Speaking recently in an interactive session with journalists, the acting Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Blessing Didia said that the school would begin to take interest in how well it performs not only in competitions but production of quality athletes and those who can groom talents.
Professor Didia however, lamented the absence of needed sports infrastructure and personnel to drive the vision. He promised that the school’s management in its drive for excellence would take stock and begin to work towards putting sports infrastructure to ensure that the institution is well rounded in grooming students.
He said that he would not be happy to send athletes to competitions, especially, NUGA and others only for them to return empty handed, stressing that the school must have the wherewithal to compete effectively in sports contests.
