UN POLAC Constitutes Advisory Council, Inaugurates Chapter Presidents

UN POLAC, an International Peace Advocacy Organization has put machinery in motion towards repositioning the group and expanding its advocacy programs in the State this year by constituting an Advisory Council, also swearing In new Chapter Presidents.

Declaring open the first 2018 general meeting of the group, the Director General, Obong Dr. Halo B. Eton, praised members for their selfless services in the past years and appealed to them to key into the new dispensation which he noted is aimed at creating greater awareness and opening vistas of understanding of the aims and functions of the group particularly to those who are yet to comprehend the philosophy of UN POLAC.

Dr. Eton showered encomiums on some Chapters for their extraordinary performances and advised others to sit up as he envisaged a rejuvenated and purposeful leadership among the new Council and Chapter Presidents.
