The foodizo event, according to Ogunnusi Afolakemi, the ULAPS president, was aimed at carrying the whole college along in the ULAPS fresher’s week, creating a market opportunity for food vendors and giving the college of Medicine students a different taste from the regular.
Eating competitions were featured on both days with emerging winners’ receiving cash prices. It was a whole lot of music, fun and food.
From the standpoint of the vendors, while some food vendors like the ‘I wan chop’ food vendors witnessed an influx of buyers, some other vendors experienced no sales at all for the two days. Some others had to beat down their prices in order to make little sales.
