The bill for accommodation went up by NGN40,000.00 because we didnt made provision for user:Olaniyan Olushola, who was the coordinator of the event. The named user couldnt travel home at the end of each day because of the distance. The shortfall on T-shirt was used to finance the budgeted transaction Olaniyan Olushola (talk) 20:03, 2 June 2018 (UTC)
