University of Ghana To Represent Ghana In London In 2020 After Winning The Commonwealth Debate

The University of Ghana contestants emerged winners of the 5th Commonwealth Day debate competition held at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) in Accra.

The contest, organised by the Public Affairs Directorate of Parliament, seeks to inculcate spirited debate in the youth across countries in the Commonwealth.

Out of eight schools that competed, four went on to the finals and UG emerged as champions.

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) tied with Accra Technical University (ATU) for the first runner-up position and Central University, based on the Accra-Aflao road, was the second runner-up.

The motion “should churches continue to be tax exempt,” got some thrilling arguments from all participants in the two round-contest.

Ama Kyerewaa Alison, Sampson Tagbor and Bayuoni Dramani Maazu popularly known as Negus the Poet, represented the UG.

The victors, who represented the University of Ghana Parliament House, have qualified to represent Ghana at the world tournament in London, in 2020.

Speaking to Myjoyonline after their victory, Mr Maazu attributed their victory to precision and the grace of the almighty God.
