Word War II: Fajuyi, Awolowo, Alumni & Angola Make It To Second Round
It was truly war on Saturday, 8th August, 2015 at the Awolowo Hall Café where the various halls of residence battled each other with words in a debate competition hosted by Team Reflector. The debate started around 11am.
The debaters of the halls who were paired beforehand then debated on their various topics with Fajuyi Hall and Akintola Hall setting the pace. The queens of Mozambique hall then faced the Castle of Great men in what could be described as a real tussle as the Chief Speaker of Mozambique Hall came with a vocal prowess and points that made a shiver run down the spines of the great men of Awo. ETF Hall then faced Alumni Hall and finally the Bedrock of Militancy had nobody to face as the Ladies of Moremi Hall did not show up. This however gave the Angola Hall debaters more work to do as they then had to meet a threshold mark of 60% to qualify.
In as much as the turnout of students was low compared to what was expected, some popular faces were present at the event: Hon Seun, The Secretary General of the OAU Student’s Union; O.Busayo, The Editor-in-chief of the Association of Nigerian Authors, OAU Chapter and even the ever lively “Awo boys” were present to cheer their representatives.
The results were announced; Fajuyi Hall, Awolowo Hall, Alumni Hall after defeating their opponents and Angola Hall, having slightly scaled through, qualified to proceed to the next round which was slated to come up this Saturday, 15th August, 2015 at Awo café.
The finals of the debate and the awarding of prizes for the poetry and essay contest was slated to come up on the 5th of September, 2015.
