"At every tertiary institution we visit, we expose students to the business and relationship skills that are crucial for long term success while creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere" Atimomo said.
"This is important to us, because we understand the benefits of investing in human capital, within and outside our company." he added.
In the same vein, the Vice-Chancellor, Adekunle Ajasin University, Professor Olufemi Mimiko, observed that Cliqfest underscores the institution's efforts to prepare students for life beyond the University.

Laptops, mobile phones, and other amazing prizes were won by many students of the University during the two- day event.
The excitement however peaked when 25 year old, 400 level student of Physics and Electronics Engineering, Olusegun Adeosi won the grand prize of a brand new car during the raffle draw.
