The debate between the schools commenced a little bit late as we waited for some of the participating schools to arrive the venue but took off properly at 11:00am starting with High Tower Schools and By His Wound Intensive College. Okafor Emmanuel and Adefarasin Deborah were the chief speaker and supporting speaker for High Tower Schools and they supported the notion that What a man can do, a woman can equally do the same. The chief speaker, Olawole Comfort and supporting speaker Eze Emmanuel of By His Wound Intensive College were against this notion and the debate ended at 11:16am.

The last contesting schools for the debate were Cleveland College and Feeders College. Cleveland college had Temade Adeniji and Tolubori Aboderin as its chief speaker and supporting speaker for the notion that Rich people should pay higher taxes than the poor people. Jimoh Mustapha and Lawal Omotolani the chief speaker and supporting speaker of Feeders College apposed the notion. This round of the debate ended quite early as the speakers from Feeders college were not able to give their points or reason why they opposed the notion due to stage fright. The students were given 15minutes break before the quiz competition.
