Ritman University commits itself to investing in the minds of students and developing their social skills. The Dialogue Session with Students of Nigerian Universities at the National Assembly was an opportunity for such education.
George Obot, a 100 level student of Economics at Ritman University represented his school, making vital contributions and expressing deep understanding during debates. His university had prepared him mentally for the programme.
The dialogue, an initiative of the Yakubu Dogara-led House of Representatives is aimed at deepening students understanding of the democratic and legislative process while attempting to bridge the disconnect students have with the system. Its core objectives include exposing students to legislative practice and procedure; improving public trust in the legislative arm of government; and enabling students to meet and interact with their elected representatives in the National Assembly.
