By Mutiu Saheed Abiodun
Professor  Asiyanbola, a lecturer of Stylistics at the department of English, lost his life to the cold hand of death within the last 24 hours. The department was thrown into great shock in the light of this news. Professor Asiyanbola was considered to be a rare gem and he would be missed. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

NISD Final: OAU Battles UNILORIN

Obafemi Awolowo University is set to lurk horns with the University of Ilorin in the final of the third edition of Nairaland Interschool Debate Competition which comes up on the 8th of May, 2016.

This edition which is the third edition kicked off on the 19th December, 2015 with 25 tertiary institutions. It kicked off with essay submission stage where 16 schools qualified for the second stage out of the 25 schools that registered interest.

The second stage which is the elimination stage saw 8 schools dumped out leaving the other 8 schools to advance to the quarter final. OAU edged past Ibadan Polytechnic in this stage.

OAU and Lagos State Ubiversity, LASU were pitched against each other in the intellectual battle while Ahmadu Bello University Zaria and University of Ilorin were placed side by side to battle for a position in the finals.

OAU v LASU game was a hit, although it was held during the examination period; 28th of March, 2016, OAU debaters were still able to defeat LASU (the winner of the first edition). Based on someone’s view, “LASU did a great job, but their rebuttal is not as strong as that of their counterparts from OAU.” The best 3 debaters from the round were taken from OAU v LASU match and in which, OAU took the first and second positions.

On one hand, having failed to progress into the finals of the previous editions and holding onto third position for two consecutive times, OAU according to her debaters and fans is set to break the jinx of third position while University of Ilorin, on the other hand, will be ready to utilise her opportunity as she has always been kicked out at the preliminary stage.

Nairaland Interschool Debate competition started in 2013 during the six month ASUU strike. During this period, some individuals came together to organise a platform where undergraduates will task their brain in researching, learning and developing their debate skills cum rebutting skill. The main aim of the competition is to give students avenue to learn.

The progenitor of this debate is Fynestboi, who happens to be the moderator of Education section of nairaland.com, and the current President of National Association of Philosophy Students (NAPS OAU). The debate started under the guidance of some Nairaland prominent personalities: Jarus, Tgirl4real and Obinoscopy. Fattbabakay, is also a prominent individual that has helped in the realisation of the debate competition.

One team out of these teams will join the likes of LASU and FUNAAB as the winners of this debate competition since its inception in 2013. Representing OAU in this edition are Emmaculate from the Faculty of Law, Miracy from the Faculty of Law and Temitayo from the Department of Public Administration.

OAU came second runner-up during the maiden edition in 2013.
