Students enlightened about United Nations System
Students of the Department of Political Science and International Relations have been enlightened on the roles of United Nations in the development of Third world Countries. This was done at a departmental seminar held at the College of Business and Social Sciences Conference room.
The guest speaker, National Information Officer/ Officer-in-Charge, United Nations Information Centre (UNIC), Mr. Oluseyi Soremekun, made this known in his presentation, “The United Nations System and Third World Development”. He also explained to the students the wide variety of organizational units with different institutional and functional structures that make the United Nations’ vision achievable.
In his words “The UN represents the countries and peoples of the world but it is not a world government. The UN is a place where people from around the world can come and work together to make the world a better and safer place”.
Concluding his presentation, Mr. Soremekun urged the students to improve on their competency by not shunning any work experience. According to him, “Competency is a key factor in the labour market, especially by paying attention to details and not neglecting work experience due to low remuneration”.
In his remarks, the Head of Department, Dr. Duruji Moses, said, “The importance of this Departmental Seminar is to bridge the gap between the classroom and the field. It also involves interacting with seasoned practitioners in the field, giving more exposure to the students and making them employable in any field they find themselves.”
