The second debate session on day 4 of the 'I Beg To Differ' debate tournament on Nigeria Info’s Hard Facts saw 12-year-old Afolarin Emmanuel Busari advancing to the quarterfinal stage of the debate tournament.
Busari squared up with 10-year-old Anita Dooshima Nuleh on the topic: Schools should teach a Nigerian language, instead of a foreign language.
