The Junior Chamber International Nigeria, University of Ibadan, popularly known as JCIN, UI, is not an obscure organization in this school. It is one that has been for a while. On Friday, 10th January, 2020, they held their annual prestigious awards ceremony, the “Fifteen Outstanding Personality Awards (FOPA).
The event took place at the Wole Soyinka Arts Theatre. The ceremony witnessed presence of students from different departments, alumni, notable and respected members of staff of the University, notable invited guests and others. It began with a wonderful red carpet graced by many colorfully dressed persons, and camera flashes beamed from every angle.
The event was bubbly from the beginning till the end as the winners of each category were announced with thrilling citations and acceptance speeches following. Comments from a few persons who attended the event indicated that it was well put together. Many also sought to put their best into efforts to be among the nominees for the FOPA 2020.
Summarily, it could be better placed that everyone, especially students, should be diligent in whatever value they provide or whatever legitimate craft their hands find doing, and their reputations will preceed them to the point of probable recognition by the JCIN, UI FOPA or even later bodies.
