According to the NIS, the two-day event will begin with a public lecture with the theme, “Activating Sports Potential: Quality, Economy and Lifestyle” at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos. Sports and Youth Development Minister, Solomon Dalung will chair it.
Speaking on the event, NIS Director/CEO, Dr. Eke Kingdom said some rebranding efforts had been on-going at the institute, all of which would be sustained after the celebrations.
“We are also rebranding and marketing NIS. We are going into our Silver Jubilee celebration and convocation, which was last held about 12 years ago. We are doing this in partnership with Marcoms agency. We are rebranding the institute by doing these things that we have not been doing in the past.
“If we were to do the convocation ceremony of this backlog of students from 2005 to 2018, it would be an annual event,” he said.
Kingdom stressed that for the NIS to be recognized globally, the Federal Government should improve on the institute’s budgetary allocation and its staff overhead.
The event, which was earlier slated for January, was shifted to March due to the general elections.
