Curating their works, the students explained the UN as a Peace-keeper, the human rights protector, a gender equality advocate, an umbrella organisation of all nations and the hope of the people.

They also exhibited works that show what the UN does in the area of environment, housing, culture, education and health.

Addressing the students and other participants, the National Information Officer of the UNIC Lagos, Oluseyi Soremekun, conveyed the gratitude of the Centre to the participating schools.
