Speaking with WikkiTimes’ Campus Gist, Abdullahi Akorede, a 400-level student of Faculty of Education and outgoing President of the union, explained that the essence of the feast is to promote cultural heritage of the ancient town, Offa — a popular town in Kwara State.

“We’ve organised this august occasion as we usually do in a bid to give a glaring voice to the legacy of our forefathers whom I’m sure will be happy with what we’re all doing here,” Akorede also known as Solution said. “We appreciate the indefatigable support of the management of this great citadel of learning, important dignitaries, the contributions of members of the association and our fellow students who are here with us.”
