After successfully hammering Ashesi in basketball, Regent University had hopes of repeating its triumph in the debate arena. Each university assembled a team to argue on the motion of whether or not universities should implement dress codes for their students. There were three speakers on both sides, each one being granted only a few minutes to establish their argument. Ashesi – represented by Kwabena Owusu-Adjei, with Albert Asiamah and Steven Odarteifio as his supporting speakers – was against the motion whilst Regent was for it. The judges were Mrs. Ronke Nedd from Ashesi and Mr. Samuel Bartels, a radio presenter and a lecturer from Regent University. By the end of the evening, a clear winner had emerged: by the judges’ scorecards, Ashesi had trounced their rivals, 80 points to 60 points, and won back some of their dignity, at least for the moment.
