"The Nigerian Association of Microbiology Students (NAMS) Conference 2016 has come and gone, but the memories of it will remain fresh."
This was the account of 'Ola, a student of the Department of Microbiology, Obafemi Awolowo University concerning the recently concluded NAMS Conference. The event, which witnessed the gathering of microbiology students from over 15 schools in Nigeria gathering in University of Benin, started on Wednesday, August 3rd and ended Saturday August 6th, 2016.
The event also featured many activities; lectures, games, quiz and InterVarsity talk.
The first and second day featured lectures by first class microbiologists and lecturers in Nigeria and also a quiz competition.
On the third day, the main show which was the anticipated InterVarsity talk started and several schools presented well, digging deep and presenting their facts before the judges and audience but after the turn of the NAMS OAU representative, it became glaring who the winner was.
Mbaneme Benjamin a part four student of the Department of Microbiology, OAU made his presentation and thrilled the audience and judges. It was a show worthy of one's presence as the thunderous applause coming from students from other schools confirmed that.
As expected, Obafemi Awolowo University came first with 94 points, leading with a clear gap from other competitors.
