August 26th, 2012
Bosas International Law Bureau, Abuja and the
Faculty of Law, University of Bradford, United Kingdom, held
an inaugural meeting on 23 August, 2012, at the Faculty of
Law, University of Bradford. The inaugural meeting was
summoned to discuss the topical subjecct of the future of
Africa in a world that is in unprecedented economic crisis.
While Euro-American states meet regularly to discuss and
find solutions to their intractable economic problems,
African states have not exerted enough efforts to grapple
with their future, which seems bleak and uncertain.
In his opening remarks, the Dean of the Faculty of Law of
the University of Bradford, Professor Chris Gale,
highlighted the importance of academic and intellectual
approach to societal problems. He said that the economic
problems of Africa should form the core concern of African
scholars and their governments. He said the he had visited
Nigeria five times, which afforded him the opportunity to
learn about real concerns.
He said that the Faculty would assist in discussions through
engaging the Faculty resource persons during the series of
international seminars, which BOSAS INTERNATIONAL LAW
BUREAU, has planned to hold at the University of Bradford.
The Cordinator of the Law Programme, Mrs Jill Torr, will
cooperate with the Head of the Women's programme to ensure
the success of the lectures. Concrete dates for each study
session will be worked out in due course.
Responding, Professor Emmanuel Omoh Esiemokhai, the Academic
Chancellor of Bosas International Law Bureau, presented a
detailed account of the work of Bosas International Law
Bureau, world-wide and explained how the International
Seminar series will benefit all participants.
He described African youths in conflict-prone African states
as a generation without a future. He pointed out that some
Multi-national Enterprises recruit African graduates but
were often disappointed at the level of their knowledge and
sophistication. These Corporations have commissioned Bosas
International Law Bureau, to promote these seminar studies
for African citizens over years.
