 Peace Obi
The Department of Sociology, University of Lagos (UNILAG) has rolled out the drums to celebrate what it described as 50 years of commitment to accomplishing the goals of transformation of society.

Briefing journalists on the activities marking the 50 anniversary, the Head of the Department, Dr. Olufunmilayo Bammeke, said the event will be celebrated with the theme ‘Sociology and National Development’.

Emphasising on the timeliness of the theme, she said the event came at a time when the country’s development crisis is deepening despite its natural and human resources. She added that the rising case of youth unemployment and the consequent increase in youth restiveness, ethno-religious conflicts and other divisive factors have posed serious obstacles to development.
