To the glory of the almighty God, the second National Conference on Environment and Health organized by the LivingScience Foundation, Ile-Ife (a professional outreach of Church Arise! LivingWater Ministries) successfully held at the Redeemer’s University, Ede between 4th – 5th April, 2017. The conference was a follow-up to the maiden one held between 17th-18th May 2016 at the same venue. The general vision for the conference is the provision of a Platform where relevant key stakeholders would come together to exchange information and ideas, as well as brainstorm on customized creative solutions that would ensure sustainable development in Nigeria.
Formal registration had to be stopped when all the 250 Conference materials prepared became exhausted, with dozens still attempting to participate! The quality of the presentations, both invited and contributed were exceptionally high. A major highlight was the launching of the Scientific peer-review technical journal on the subject of Environment-Health, the Nigerian Journal of Environment and Health, floated by the LivingScience Foundation (see www.lsfnigeria.org/NJEH/).
The Honourable Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh (OFR) sent in an address through the Osun State Director of the Ministry, Mr Joseph Adeniyi Ogunwale. Prof Lawrence Ezemonye, National President of the Nigerian Environmental Society, from the University of Benin, delivered the keynote address. Other dignitaries present included Prof Abiodun Oluwole, doyen of Environmental Sciences in Nigeria, and Prof Zachariah Adeyewa, the Vice Chancellor of the Redeemer’s University, gracious co-host of the Conference.
