outstanding performance during an inter faculty debating session held at Igbariam campus of the University .
The debate took place at the Political Science Hall of the institution.
The club, founded by the student’s union Government Secretary – General of the institution, Comrade Jennifer Ilokwu, is an inter-departmental club which affords the students the opportunity to enhance their oratory expertise, proficiency in English language and self confidence in debates.
The inception of the club was a result of a debate tournament held in Ghana in which the school participated with other Nigerian Debating communities with outstanding performance.
In her speech, the Patroness of the club , Professor Ngozi Chuma – Ude expressed sadness that students no longer engage themselves in activities that can improve their lives academically regretting that they rather spend time on frivolous activities.
