Nigeria came into being on January 1, 1914 with the formal amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates of the British Territory. The country has therefore been in a festive mood this year to celebrate 100 years of existence.

The Department of Environmental Health Sciences, Faculty of Public Health, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, in collaboration with the Nigerian Environmental Study/Action Team (NEST), joined in observing the landmark via a stock-taking symposium on “The Nigerian Environment – Past 100 Years and the Future” that focused on the nation’s total environment.
