Delivering a lecture during the event, the president, the Chemical Society of Nigeria, Prof, Moses Chendo thanked the faculty for rescucitating the colloquium after a long period, saying that natural environment encompassed the interaction of all living species, climate, weather among other things.

The Chemical Society of Nigeria’s president quoted International Labour Organization (ILO) as saying that over one hundred thousand Nigerians do collect and dismantle electronic waste by hand and are in serious danger of contracting chemical and hazardous disease, as, according to him, chemistry played both positive and negative roles in society, depending on its application.

The Acting Deam, Faculty of Physical Sciences of the University, Prof. K.K. Nwozor told the gathering that the faculty had a fascinating history rooted in sheer will of not just to survive but to excell against all odds, and that from the twenty Professors the faculty had as at 2021 that he took over the mantle of leadership, that the number of Professors had risen to twenty eight and others were on the queue.
