Students will surely benefit from such endeavours as competitions like this are sure to help strengthen their faith and teach them how to be productive during their free time.” He also added, “Such competitions also help participants develop their linguistic abilities, which is why I have been ardent in emphasizing the importance of forming a chanting team to represent the University at local and international competitions.”
