The programme was said to have generated an huge sums of money to the association however the crisis reached its peak when some of the parliamentarians claimed that the President of the Association, Vincent Adebola, had refused to present the financial report of the program and walked out of a sitting without permission when asked to present a report by the parliament.

When contacted, the president said, “The issue is that we were there to present the financial report of our summit but in the process of giving that report, there were lots of interception from the members of the ASRC. It was just a minor issue and we were able to resolve it and everything has been settled. There was nothing like fighting.”
