The glorious event had in attendance: an alumnus of Corporate Bankers Club, NCBCB Ogunjide Bosun; participants from Managers Club; Participants from Prudent Underwriters Club and Corporate Bankers Club members, which had eighty percent of the attendance.

The clubs that participated in the literary competition are Corporate Bankers Club of Banking and Finance Department, Managers Club of Business Administration Department and Prudent Underwriters Club of Insurance Department. Joint Minds Club of Accountancy Department, though, was also invited but was disqualified from the inception due to their absence.

The host club, Corporate Bankers Club emerged second in the Quiz competition and together with Prudent Underwriters Club, won the debate competition. Though, the debate session was initially scheduled to be 2 clubs (PUC and CBC) against 2 clubs (JMI and Managers Club), believing that all the clubs would be present.

However, the judge from the Managers Club expressed his disgruntlement over some sudden change that was made concerning the debate, being the main reason for their performance.
