A very warm welcome to The Department of Political Science which was established in 1979 when the College was upgraded to N.C.E Awarding Institution. It was not taught as a full-fledged Political Science Course but as Government combined with Economics and Geography.
In 1989, the course was canceled from the College as a result of students’ unrest on the campus. However, it was later resuscitated in 1999 under the leadership of Dr. A.O.K Noah and thus, the name was changed from Government to Political Science with other courses combined.
