IBTD: 14-year-old Andrella Nnadi and 16-year-old Ihuoma Osunkwo Secure Quarterfinal Spot

Day Two of the ‘I Beg To Differ’ tournament on Nigeria Info’s Hard Facts saw contestants competing for a chance to progress to the next round of the debate tournament. 

The first debate session witnessed 16-year-old Ihuoma Osunkwo and 15-year-old Chinecherem Ike-Onumah debating the topic: Should Elective Offices Be Zoned and Rotated?

Ihuoma Osunkwo, who supported the motion, emerged as the winner of the day’s first debate session, thus progressing to the next round of the tournament. 

The second debate session paved way for 15-year-old Victor Olusegun, and 14-year-old Andrella Nnadi to slug it out on the topic: ‘Unicameral Legislature Will Be Better For Nigeria.’

Andrella Nnadi, who supported the motion, insists that the money spent on a Bi-cameral Legislature is extremely outrageous.

She added that a bicameral legislature will simply lead to repetition of duties in the legislative arm of government.

Her opponent, Victor Olusegun, was of the opinion that a bicameral legislature will help adequately maintain checks and balances within the government.

Andrella Nnadi, after consideration from the panel of judges, emerged as the winner of the second debate session, thus progressing to the next round of the tournament.
