A Former Permanent Mission of Nigeria to United Nations, Dr. Kayode Ojo has expressed optimism in the future of Nigerian Youths and Nigeria, notwithstanding the current challenges being faced by the country.

Dr. Ojo who at different times was Ambassador to New York, United States, Madrid- Spain, Dominican Republic, Brussels- Belgium, London- UK amongst several nations of the world said Nigerian Youths are one of a kind, who are very resilient, innovative, creative, hard-working and intellectually endowed and therefore could always hold their heads up anywhere in the world.


Dr. Ojo who was delivering the annual lecture of Diplomatic Exposure By Elizade University said experience has shown that the Nigerian Youths are multi-tasking and remain one of the best crop of youths around the world who only need to be mentored and galvanized towards productivity and sustainable development.

He said the global space is a fertile ground for the Nigerian Youths to unleash their positive energy and vibes that will in turn bring up the glory of Nigeria and also change the narrative positively not only about Nigeria but the continent of Africa in a situation where everyone out of five Africans is a Nigerian.


The Ambassador praised the teaching and learning culture of Elizade University which offers the students practical exposure to global opportunities to which they can tap.


Elizade University Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kayode Thadius Ijadunola is glad that the students are indeed proving their mettle on account of their performance both in National and International engagements.

He assured that Elizade University will not rest on its oars in producing students that are globally competitive.


Vice-Chancellor of Achievers University, Professor Omolola Oladunni Irinoye, who was Guest of honour expressed delight at the great exploits being made by Elizade University, noting that it can only get better as the University goes higher.


Chairman of the 2024 Elizade University Diplomatic Exposure who is the Dean Faculty of Humanities and Social Management Sciences, Professor Joseph Fabayo said the mission is to continually equip the students through international exposure for the realization of the town and gown genuine experience for wholesome output.


The HOD, History and International Relations, Dr. Tunde Fajimbola said Elizade University is determined to positively change the narrative about academic qualifications in Nigeria whereby students will not only be academically qualified but will be professionally and ethically qualified to birth a new generation that will make Nigeria proud in the international community.

 He said it is a thorough, involving and engaging process that aims at total transformation, which of course had started producing heart-warming results of global reckoning.


The Elizade University Diplomatic Exposure is an annual practical session where students are exposed to opportunities at the International scene through the experience of seasoned Career Diplomats who have served in various missions around the world.
