Commenting on the event, YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, Azuh Arinze, stated that it’s going to be a remarkable and memorable day. “This is the fifth edition, so people should expect the injection of some fresh ideas into the programme. However, and for now, I wouldn’t want to unfold them yet. This edition, no doubt, will be an improvement on the previous ones in terms of everything.”
