Whatever your hands find to do, do it diligently for in due time, you shall reap the fruits.
The grand finale of the SPE week which started at the early hours of 10:00am took a different phase from other days. Before the different speakers for the day arrived, the master of ceremony (MC), did something really spectacular.
He took turns to ask all the students of their opinion on what can be done to diversify Nigerian economy, which also forms the theme of the SPE week - Diversification of Nigerian Economy - The way forward
Different answers were given from different students, and they all had this to say:
1.The government has a crucial role to play and shouldn't depend solely in the oil and gas
2. Government should invest in the youths
3. Government should sponsor Agriculture
4. They should invest in natural gas
Now this is the part I love the most, I have my favorite part for each day. And today's favourite is...
Which was anchored by @nexrules and the quiz competition was between the 200L and 300L students.
It wouldn't have been so fair if the junior category had won the senior category, although there was a tie between the two teams, @nexrules had to ask an additional question giving each team 10 seconds against the initial 20 seconds they had for each question. It happens that the junior category lost giving room for the senior category to emerge as the winner of the quiz competition. - Congratulations to team 300L.
