The Bayelsa State owned Niger Delta University, Faculty of Law in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria has emerged with the 2nd position in the Prof. Manfred Lach Space Moot Court Competition in Pretoria, South Africa.
The Competition which is organized annually is aimed at fostering knowledge on Space Law amongst young advocates in the World.
The Niger Delta University defeated the University of Ibadan, and the University of South Africa before going to the finals where they contested against the University of Calabar which means that two universities in the Niger Delta Region made it to the finals in the International competition.
Although the Niger Delta University may have not won the competition, it is worthy of note that the students of the faculty of law have been able to set the record straight that we have all it takes to conquer the world. Recall that the Niger Delta University had earlier won the Justice Walter Onnoghen National Moot Court Competition in the University of Calabar.
Based on the development in South Africa, the University of Calabar will therefore be representing Africa in Washington D.C. at the world stage before judges of the International Court of Justice.
Congratulations to our advocates. Chris Alagoa , Ovie, and Owei for making us proud. A big thumbs up to the team leader, Mrs. Gina Igbinovia Elvis-ImoGina Igbinovia Elvis-ImoGina Igbinovia Elvis-Imo and our able Dean of the faculty, Prof. Solomon T. EbobrahSolomon T. Ebobrah
The Government of Bayelsa State should honour these youngsters for making the State proud.
