The management of Univeristy of Lagos (UNILAG), has denied ever emerging third in its participation in the car exhibition programme held, which held in Holland recently.
There were media reports that the premier university placed third in the competition, but a statement signed by the coordinator/assistant registrar, Information Unit of UNILAG, Kingrobert Emukpoeruo, said though Autonov II “did feature on the track, the race did not count”.
“The truth is that Team UNILAG passed the technical inspection. Autonov II did feature on the track, but the race did not count. The team entered a ‘battery electric’ car”, the statement read.
Management noted that there was the need to set the records straight following the media frenzy that Autonov 11 emerged third in the exhibition programme.
