If you’re a communication scholar in Nigeria and you love attending well organized conferences supported by renowned international organizations then you should read this story. When UNESCO contributes in organizing any conference in Nigeria you should be there.
The Association of Communication Scholars & Professionals of Nigeria (ACSPN) has received a rare endorsement that proves it is one of the top professional bodies in Africa housing communication scholars. The association received endorsement from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), and promised to partner ACSPN, on its 7th Annual Conference on “Communicating Identities and Nationhood: The Media, the Government and the People”. The conference is scheduled to hold from September 2-3, 2020, at Rockview Hotel Royale, Wuse 1, Abuja.
In a letter to ACSPN dated January 31, 2020, and signed by its Regional Director, Mt Yao Ydo, UNESCO noted:
“Over the years. UNESCO has worked with and studied the activities of ACSPN. Your resilient efforts in bridging the gap in areas of communication with emphasis on domesticating best practices in every sector of Nigeria, including governance, is a cornerstone”.
Mr Ydo promised to provide technical support to ensure the success of the conference, and to promote its success through UNESCO’s social media platforms.
This endorsement is significant and signposts the involvement of key stakeholders in the conference and its cutting-edge sessions.
This is truly a rare endorsement which promises to make the upcoming ACSPN conference a must-attend for every communication scholar in Nigeria.
