NUGA 2022: Two gold medalists publicly announce wedding engagement
Two gold medalists who publicly announced their marriage proposal at the just concluded 26th Nigeria University Games (NUGA) at the University of Lagos, have been honoured.
A student of Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Sunday Ambule, had on Wednesday, during the games, proposed to his love, Sa’adatu Hashime, from the same University.
Vice-Chancellor of UNILAG, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, made this known on Saturday in his closing remark when he ushered the duo on stage to the admiration of the audience.
Speaking during the event, Professor Ogundipe said “The icing of this game is the athletes that proposed to one another, the man won gold, also the woman.
“This competition will ever remain fresh in the minds of the two intending couple and I will be happy to be the father of the day whenever they are ready to tie the knot.
“This is the first time we are experiencing something of such, so I praise their courage,” he said.
For Ambule, a student of Social Studies Education at ABU, he proposed to his love because it was a perfect time since they were both competing in the tournament.
“I chose the tournament because I met her through sports, she is an athlete like me. She is adorable and fully understands me. She has been encouraging me a lot,” he said.
The lady of the moment, Hashime, from the same department with Ambule, who could not contain her joy, said it was “one of my best moments ever. I was shocked when he proposed to me and when we were called on stage. We feel so honoured.”
University of Port Harcourt won the 26th NUGA games, with host UNILAG coming second and the Nile University, Abuja, winning the third position.
