NIS matriculates 270 as DG harps on discipline, team work



The Director-General of the National Institute for Sports (NIS) Professor Olawale Moronkola, has urged newly admitted students of the Institute to imbibe virtues of teamwork, discipline and integrity in order to sustain the reputation of the institution.

Speaking during the matriculation of 270 students made up of professional certificates, Advance and Diploma, Prof Moronkola charged them to be ready to learn by embracing the challenges that are ahead.

“Today marks not just the beginning of an academic journey for our new students, but also reaffirms our commitment to nurturing talents and fostering excellence in the field of sports.

“You stand at the threshold of an incredible journey. As you are formally admitted as NIS students, you are not just joining an academic institution, you are becoming part of a legacy. A legacy of excellence, determination and resilience. 


“The path ahead may be demanding, but it is also filled with opportunities to grow, learn and excel. Embrace the challenges, for it is only  through that you will discover your true potential.”

He also assured the students that the institution’s curriculum has been meticulously designed to provide them with a holistic education that encompasses both the theoretical and practical aspects of sports.

“I urge you to take advantage of the resources and facilities that are available to you. I encourage you to strive for excellence in every of your endeavors,” he said.

Meanwhile, the newly elected Students Union Government has been urged to cooperate with the management of the Institute to make NIS greater. 

This was the advice of the DG during the swearing in of the Union led by Omefe Michael Kanayo (MKO) who was elected last week.
