Political Science Students Hold Round-Table Talk

The Obafemi Awolowo University chapter of the National Association of Political Science Students (NAPSS) on the noon of Wednesday, 25th January 2017 held a political roundtable.

The talk which was held at the Social Sciences Lecture Theatre was centered on the theme; “Anti-Corruption War: Political, Legal and Economic Perspective” featured distinguished speakers which came with different approaches to the topic. Immanuel Faith, the Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Economic Students Association (NESA), who represented the President of the department spoke on the Economic effects of the Anti-Corruption War, stating that the main purpose why corruption was a bad thing for any economy was that the money embezzled was often hidden out of the country and thus reduced the total amount of money in circulation. Ayogu Chinedu, however, approached the topic from a more practical perspective as he lauded the ongoing fight against corruption in the country by the President and Mr Salam Rasak also came to give his opinion which did not totally agree with the prior.

Mr Agunyai S., a lecturer in the department of Political Science however rounded off the debate as he clarified that President Muhammadu Buhari was not at all fighting corruption but was only facing a few corrupt politicians in the country and although, the President had a personal repute of truth and integrity, his approach to the said Anti-corruption fight might not be the most effective.
