Elizade University Emerges 1st at Competition:
Elizade University, Ilara-Mokin, Ondo State, has emerged first at a competition organised by the Nigerian Economics Students Association, Wesley University of Science and Technology, Ondo State. The competition marks this year’s Young Economic Summit.
Representatives of private universities from South-West Nigeria were invited to participate in the event. Each of the representatives was given 15 minutes to make power-point presentation on “The Effects of Educational Expenditure on Economic Growth in Nigeria.”
They were graded on their knowledge of the topic, flow of presentation, communication skills, boldness, dressing and time management.
After the competition, representative of Elizade University, Mr. Oluyale Iyanu, was announced winner.
Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, came second while Achievers University, Owo, came third.
Oluyale congratulated his co-contestants. He admitted the stiff competition they gave him, saying any of the contestants could have won the competition.
He attributed his excellent performance to availability of competent hands in his university.
Meanwhile, the Students Consultative Forum of Elizade University has been inaugurated.
Inaugurating the forum, the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Valentine Aletor, said the need for robust relationship between the management and the students occasioned the inauguration.
Aletor, who lauded the excellent behaviour of the students since the opening of the university, urged them to continue in the path of moral and academic excellence, which the school is known for.
The vice-chancellor warned the students not to mistake the forum for Students’ Union Government.
