#CAMPUSNEWS:: UNIBEN VC commends NASS stand on same–sex marriage

8:05 AM

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin, Prof. Osayuki Oshodin has commended the National Assembly for voting against the legalization of same-sex marriage, in spite of pressures from some countries and international donor agencies.

The University don spoke today at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the National Institute for Legislative Studies (NILS) and UNIBEN to offer postgraduate diploma and masters’ programmes in areas of Legislative Studies, Parliamentary Administration and Legislative Drafting, held at the National Assembly.

According to the University Don the stance of the National Assembly against the same sex marriage increased their image in the eyes of Nigerians. Director General of the NILS, Dr. Ladi Hamalai in her opening remarks said the programmes will improve legislative practice in Nigeria and across the continent, especially as the expertise in such programmes are not readily available in Universities.

“The Institute has over ten Ph.D holders in relevant fields. In addition, we have a team of in-house consultants such as Prof. Mike Obadan, Prof. Akpapan and Prof. D.A Goubadia to also teach courses.”

She said. Deputy Speaker of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu who doubles as Chairman of the NILS governing council said UNIBEN is best for the programme because of the university’s expertise in social sciences as well as the university.
