The IFUMSA Quiz and Debate Club have been living up to their status as the Club/Organ of the year by the outstanding feats they have set in recent times. Read more for a brief report on their wins at the AMSUL senate competition and upcoming competitions where they would be sure to make IFUMSAites proud.
The AMSUL senate competition was one that featured two aspects;
- British Parliamentary Debate
The competition featured three associations; Association of Medical Students’ University of Lagos (AMSUL), Obafemi Awolowo University Medical Students’ Association (IFUMSA) and Olabisi Onabanjo University Medical Students’ Association (OOUMSA).
☸️ Round 1 – PRESENTATION
The presentation round was a 10-minute speech on the topic; The Role of Health Workers in the implementation of the National Health Act – one in which OOUMSA won while IFUMSA, ably represented by Emmanuel MBAH tied in the second position with AMSUL.
☸️ Round 2 – BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY Debate
We presented two teams (two for each) at the debate whereas OOUMSA and AMSUL each presented one to make four teams (a total of 8 participants) at the round.
At the end of the debate….
IFUMSA’s Team 1 (ABIODUN Promise and OLOFINSAO Charity) finished in first position while Team 2 (FAMOKUNWA Ayotunde, who had to be an iron man) finished third with OOUMSA and AMSUL in second and fourth positions respectively.
