The annual event is for all Universities in West Africa to bring the academics within the West African subregion together so that people of like minds or in a related/similar field could jointly come up with research proposals and execute same together to enable them to address the challenges facing the subregion.
The registrar called on the regional universities to expose their students to the challenges of unification in the sub region. He said they should not limit their vision for the production of graduates for only their nations but for the entire subregion.
