The style of the debate followed that of the British Parliament in which four teams were assigned the role of government and opposition to debate a motion given by the judges. Before reaching the final round, Team SLU scaled through five rounds and a semifinal.

The SLU team, which was led by an academic staff (coach), Idris Hamza Yana, included the following students: Aisha Goni, Alhassan Tsalhatu, Haruna Abdurrahman and Ibrahim Hussaini Yakubu.

The vice-chancellor, Professor Lawan Sani Taura, while receiving the trophy from the team, congratulated them for the feat which, he said, would put the university on the global map of reputable universities.
