The finals of the J-K Gadzama SAN Business law debate held on Tuesday, November 23, 2021. After a long and well battled competition, the Judges retreated into a deliberation room for about 30 minutes to decide who won.
After the Judges retuned, the Presiding Judge, Mr Kehinde Ogunwumiju SAN began the announcement. He informed the participants that Mr Usman Ibrahim Wali was the 2nd Runner-Up after edging Mr Adeyemi Kehinde Ayeku in the third place debate.
Moving on to the final round between Mr Izuchukwu Temilade Nwagbara and Mr Ayodeji Ayodele Ayolola, he stated that both participants did incredibly well but in such debates, one person must always come out the winner. He then proceeded to announce that Mr Izuchukwu Temilade Nwagbara had won the competition.
After winning the competition, Mr Izuchukwu Temilade Nwagbara walks home with N1,000,000, Mr Ayodeji Ayodele Ayolola with N500,000 and Mr Ibrahim Usman Wali with N250,000.
