While Speaking on Sunday, at Oke-Are Primary Health Care Center, Ibadan, venue of the surgery, the Executive Secretary, Oyo State, Primary Health Care Board, Dr. Muideen Olatunji disclosed that the programme was targeted at indigent patients who cannot afford the operation in any Private Hospital.

According to him, “the board in conjunction with Christian Blind Mission (CBM) is offering free Surgical intervention on Hydroceles and Lymphedema Management for close to 90 to 100 indigent patients across 33 local government areas of the state.”

“We have one of our programme interventions that we refer to as Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and there are many diseases under the NTDs, one of them is this hydrocele and many people tend to have these health issues. The health issue tends to cause embarrassment to whoever has it, so  CBM is supporting us to operate on most of these people that may have financial challenges”, he said.

“We are conducting this programme in 33 local government areas of the state and we have mobilized people through our local NTDs coordinators to search for those who may have features, to enlist them and bring them to this facility to be operated free of charge”.

“Today, we operated more than ten, and we wish to go further and continue with the programme, using this place as the central point that patients will be coming. In fact, there is a commission for them, when they come, like the cost of transport back home will be taken care of because we understand that they are not financially buoyant.

He said the gesture by the  partners and the Oyo State Government is to support them, urging them to visit Oyo state primary health facilities for follow ups.

“You know the government has already renovated and upgraded most of these facilities”, he said

“The turnout is so impressive, and we are still expecting some that have these kinds of diseases”.

Earlier in his speech, the Project Director, Christian Blind Mission (CBM) Enan Williams Adamani, who spoke through the Project Manager, Elizabeth Ezeobele, explained that the organization is in partnership with the Oyo state government to conduct lymphatic Filariasis morbidity and management disability prevention for residents of the state.

He maintained that the Oyo state government through the Primary Health Care Board focused on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).

He commended the Oyo state government and its officials for the support they have shown towards the success of the programme.

While speaking on behalf of his son, who was among the beneficiaries, Mr. Sheriff Adeyemo, applauded the governor of the state for the gesture.

He also thanked the partner and medical team for prompt and qualitative health care given to his son at no cost.

UI Appoints Makinde Ambassador Extraordinaire Ahead 75th Anniversary

The University of Ibadan has appointed and decorated the governor of Oyo State, ‘Seyi Makinde, as Ambassador Extraordinaire of the University ahead of its 75th anniversary.

Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Kayode Adebowale, who led the management of the university and members of the anniversary committee to the Courtesy Room of the Governor’s Office, Agodi, Ibadan, presented the governor with a plaque and a garland of honour on Monday.
Professor Adebowale lauded the governor for contributing to the development of the university over the years, even before he became governor of the state.

Speaking shortly after receiving the team, Governor Makinde appreciated the university for the honour bestowed on him, stating that he would continue to work with the university because the institution has continued to be helpful to the state in terms of human capacity development and other areas.
The governor said: “It is a very close family. Over the years, the University of Ibadan has always been there with the resources to help the state. For this administration, you will probably say we have been poaching talents from the institution. What we have done basically are things that should have been done a long time ago. This is because we have the resources right there and what to do is to leverage the closeness of the institution to the government.


“We have had Professor Adeyemo, Professor Omole, Prof Babatunde, even the DG Protocol is also from UI. So, we will continue to come and knock on the door of UI to support the state.”
The governor equally noted that his administration would, as part of the constructions and improvements of junctions being carried out by the administration, reconstruct the Orogun-Ajibode-Sasa Junction and embark on junction improvement at the frontage of the University of Ibadan, to give the institution a better ambience.

The governor said, “Let me specially thank you for the honour of making me an Ambassador Extraordinaire for the UI at 75 Anniversary. That is a significant milestone. I will do my best to provide support for the anniversary and the university.”
Earlier in his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor said, “On behalf of the management, staff and students of the university, I congratulate you on your outstanding victory at the polls.
“Your reelection is a testament to your sterling performance and very humane policies in your first term. It is our prayer that your second term will be far more impactful than the first term even as we pray for good health and God’s wisdom for you and those working with you.
“UI is grateful to you as a wonderful governor and it is obvious that our university has been a great beneficiary of your good service,” Adebowale said.
The UI team was received by the governor, the Secretary to the State Government, Prof Olanike Adeyemo; Chief of Staff, Hon Segun Ogunwuyi; and Head of Service, Mrs Olubunmi Oni, among others.
The UI delegation included Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration, Professor E. O. Ayoola; Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research, Innovation & Strategic Partnerships, Professor Oluyemisi A. Bamgbose; and the chairman of the Governing Council of the Ladoke Akintola University, Professor Ayodeji Omole, among others.

The Marine And Blue Economy Ministry: Implications For The People And Economy Of Nigeria

The Marine And Blue Economy Ministry: Implications For The People And Economy Of Nigeria
The Marine And Blue Economy Ministry: Implications For The People And Economy Of Nigeria

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu unveiled a list of ten new or revised ministries that will shape his administration’s policies. Among these, the marine and blue economy ministry, headed by former Governor of Osun State, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, is of particular interest. This ministry aims to oversee the prudent management of Nigeria’s marine resources and promote the sustainable growth of the blue economy.

Nigeria possesses a wealth of marine resources, including oil, gas, and minerals. Its coastline stretches over 850 kilometres, harboring a diverse array of marine life, from fish to crustaceans and mollusks. Unfortunately, these resources are under threat from challenges such as overfishing, pollution, and habitat degradation, which could jeopardize their sustainability and potential economic benefits.

Effectively harnessing these resources has the potential to significantly boost the nation’s revenue. The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation estimates the value of the country’s oil and gas reserves at over $1 trillion. Furthermore, the fishing sector contributes substantially to the economy, with an estimated worth exceeding $1 billion. Nonetheless, these resources remain largely untapped, and ongoing efforts are being made to enhance their responsible management and preservation.

Likewise, the blue economy holds promise for substantial economic gains while fostering sustainable development and environmental protection. The World Economic Forum projects that the blue economy could contribute up to $2.5 trillion to global economic output by 2030. Simultaneously, it could help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and bolster food security. However, realizing these benefits necessitates meticulous management of oceanic resources and ecosystems, necessitating collaboration among governments, businesses, and Nigerian Maritime Union of Nigeria (NUM).

Within this sector’s potential lie opportunities for economic growth, revenue generation, and job creation. However, the history of agencies and departments integral to the new ministry suggests challenges. Instances of corruption, maladministration, and questionable contracts cast a shadow over these agencies’ operations. For instance, the NIMASA corruption scandal brought to light significant corruption within the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, involving the misappropriation of funds and assets for personal gain.

The incident exposed the need for transparency and accountability within government bodies. Notably, the leadership of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency is yet to deploy 17 vessels and helicopters from a $700 million allocation for vessel procurement through the Cabotage Vessel Financing Fund (CVFF) to enhance security in Nigerian waters. Meanwhile, a $105 million contract was awarded to the Global West Vessel Specialist Agency, helmed by Chief Government Ekpemukpolo (aka Tompolo). Such occurrences are troubling in a nation with a constitutionally mandated Nigerian Navy responsible for safeguarding coastal and water territories.

Furthermore, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) grapples with corruption cases involving allegations of bribery, embezzlement, and other forms of graft. These challenges hinder the NPA’s capacity to manage and regulate the nation’s ports efficiently, resulting in inefficiencies and financial losses. Efforts to address these issues have encountered resistance, underscoring the need for a comprehensive approach to tackling corruption within the NPA.


Given the continued prevalence of corruption and perceived ineffectiveness associated with Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, based on his track record in Osun State, concerns have arisen among segments of Nigerian dock workers and stakeholders regarding the Tinubu presidency. It is crucial to ensure that the story of the marine and blue economies does not mirror that of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Limited—an issue that looms large but remains unaddressed.

The Kaduna State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps, (NYSC) Hassan Taura said that the Federal Government has approved an upward review of feeding allowance for corp members.

The coordinator who made this known while fielding questions from journalists, shortly after the opening/swearing-in ceremony for the 2023 batch B stream 2 orientation course did not specifically disclose which of the corps member’s allowances was reviewed.

When asked what plans were made for the corps members in terms of welfare while in the orientation camp and beyond, he said “first, the federal government in its wisdom has reviewed the feeding allowance of the corps members.”

The coordinator who promised to prioritize corps members’ welfare in his state said, “I told them (corps members) I’m going to make their food of good quality and quantity.

“I told them I will ensure that they won’t spend their money in the camp market. This is the promise I made to them and I’m fulfilling them.

“I’m going to feed them in such a way that they will not spend from their pocket. They don’t even have the money, so it is our duty to ensure we feed them well.

On arrangements by the state government and private organizations to ensure timely payment of stipends of corps members posted to them for Primary Assigment, he said, “In line with our operations of the monthly stipend we pay corp members, we expect their employers, be it state goverment, private organization we post corps members to pay them some little stipend in addition to what Federal Goverment sends them. This employers should be able to fulfill that.”

The Oyo State Government has approved the immediate release of car loans for primary school teachers, across all zones in the state.

This was disclosed today in Ibadan by the coordinating Director, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Mr. Jacob Dairo, who stated that the loan is coming as a palliative to teachers in the state.

He said the loan which is to be distributed in many tranches is to cushion the effect of the removal of fuel subsidy, on Oyo State primary school teachers.

According to him, the scheme was graciously approved by the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, who has instructed that the loan be provided to all teachers, without any favoritism.

The coordinating Director therefore, advised the beneficiaries to use the support judiciously for the intended purpose.

The facility which is to be granted by financial institutions, is to be redeemed within 40 months.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Salihu Abdulwaheed has expressed readiness to work with all stakeholders in the Education sector.

The Commissioner stated this when he paid a visit to the Directorate of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board on Thursday.

Prof. Abdulwaheed assured that the Oyo State Government will, in due course, recruit more teachers into the basic education sub-sector.

He added that the present administration will ensure training of staff members, for an all-round success of the Government.

Responding, Mr. Dairo promised a more robust working relationship between the Board and the Ministry of Education.

The Oyo State Government has reiterated its policy thrust to develop sports at the primary level, saying its pupils will soon dominate sporting events at the National level.

The Co-ordinating Director, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Mr. Jacob Dairo made this known at the distribution of sporting equipment donated by Oyo State Government, in collaboration with Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) to 82 primary Schools held at the Board’s headquarters, on Tuesday.

Mr. Dairo said that the Board is not only poised to restore the leading position by the state in primary sporting activities, but to take school sports to an enviable height in Nigeria.

He revealed that benefitting schools got sporting equipment such as Handball goalposts and net, skipping ropes, table-tennis bats and nets, handballs, Badminton rackets and other equipment distributed to schools in the 3 Senatorial districts in the State.

Dairo, who heads the Board’s Schools Services department, said the Board got delivery of sporting items courtesy of Governor Seyi Makinde and that the essence of the occasion was to officially flag-off the distribution of the items to the various beneficiary schools in the state.

He said the Oyo State Government intends to catch them young with the facilities, adding that the items will enable pupils to participate actively in sports.

The co-ordinating director said the Oyo State Government will organise a sporting competition among schools at local and Zonal levels, while the overall winner will represent the State in National competitions.

Mr. Dairo therefore charged the beneficiary schools to take care of the items delivered to them, urging them to make proper use of the equipment for the purpose for which it is meant.

The Co-ordinating Director added that, earlier, the Oyo State Governor approved the commencement of the Agricultural Education Training Programme for 73 primary schools.

He said the programme will train Education Secretaries, Head of Section, schools services of each local government, Head teachers, Agricultural studies teachers, and School Based Management Committee (SBMC) representatives from different local governments.

Mr. Dairo said the Oyo State Government has approved funding of the Agricultural training programme, in the 33 Local Governments in the State.

Dairo said the trainees in turn will train pupils on crop farming, snailery, and livestock farming.

Mr. Dairo said that a monitoring team will go round the schools to ensure that funds allocated for the training programme are properly utilized.

Speaking earlier, the Chairman, Nigeria Union of Teachers, Oyo State Chapter, Com. Raji Oladimeji applauded the initiatives put in place by the Oyo State Government for pupils.

The NUT Chairman said sporting activities, which are almost moribund in most schools, is due to the topography of land in most schools.

He therefore said the development will resuscitate the almost-moribund sporting activities in most public primary Schools.

Also, the Chairman, Association of Primary School Headteachers of Nigeria, AOPSHON, Oyo State branch, Comrade Adedeji Adekunle appealed to the trainees to pay full attention to the teachings.

Mr. Adekunle also applauded Governor Makinde for his unwavering support to wholesome basic education in the State, saying the Agricultural training programme will put basic education in the State on a leading path, among its contemporaries.

The Zonal chairman, School based management committee, Egbeda Local Government, Deacon Adegbite Omoniyi said the Agricultural training will encourage younger ones to participate in agriculture.

He said the SBMC and other stakeholders are committed to the new project, which will accelerate agricultural development in schools.

Oyo State governor, ‘Seyi Makinde, has appointed Professor Olanrewaju Olaniyan as the Vice Chancellor of Emmanuel Alayande University of Education, Oyo.

The Governor made the announcement on Wednesday while receiving the reports from the Chairmen of the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital and the Emmanuel Alayande University of Education Planning and Implementation Committees, at the Executive Council Chamber of the Governor’s Office, Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan.

Makinde assured that recommendations of the separate committees would be implemented in no distant time, appreciating the chairmen of both committees, Professor Juwon Arotiba and Professor Ayodeji Omole, and their members, who he said performed beyond expectations on the assignments given to them.

Speaking on the report of the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Committee, the governor said that the state government would create a Directorate for Tertiary Healthcare in the Ministry of Health, which would be in charge of the tertiary health institutions.

He said: “Let me on behalf of the government and the people of Oyo State thank Professor Juwon Arotiba, and your team for a job well done.

“You went beyond the assignment given to you in terms of what you have delivered to us. We wanted the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria to accredit our MBBS programme. Not only did you get that done, you were also able to increase our admission quota from 75 to 120.”

He added, “Usually, the way the government operates is, you give us your report, we set up a committee to evaluate it. We set up another committee to evaluate the report of the first committee until we get an implementation committee. But because you have opened up everything, we don’t need any committee to review your recommendations.

“Let me give the assurance that we will quickly move to ensure that the report is implemented.

“So, let me say that the reward for hard work is more work. We may be coming to tap you shortly again for some other assignments and I do hope and pray that you will not turn down our request because this is our state and we have to pull our support together to assist the state to grow.”

While announcing the appointment of Professor Olaniyan as the Vice Chancellor of the Emmanuel Alayande University of Education, Oyo, Governor Makinde said workers of the College of Education should not entertain any fear as his administration would not sack any staff of the institution.

According to him, his administration is not known for inhuman acts of sacking workers indiscriminately, stressing that those that were sacked by his predecessor were reabsorbed into the civil service when he got into office.

The governor said: “We want to, once again, thank Professor Deji Omole. The journey started before I became the governor of Oyo State. Let me put in proper context what you have had to do to get us to this point.

“People were criticising us when we came in and we said, ‘look, the rot in our tertiary institutions in Oyo State is unquantifiable’ and we decided to bring in a consultant so that we can ask people who ideally should be responsible for managing these institutions, to give account of what they are doing.

“Sometimes, they come to us to say the subvention is not enough and when I asked about what is happening to their IGR, nobody wants to talk to me about the IGR. They only want to talk about subvention and more money.

“We put in the consultant and the story changed a little bit. We were seeing money to get certain things done, but then, we were hearing from everywhere that the Consultant is not allowing the Governing Council to function; they are not allowing money to be spent as and when necessary, and they said we should scrap the Consultant and get back to the normal way of doing things.

“What you just described from EACOED to the extent that, for nine years there was no audit report and even the audit report for 2013 was not paid for. I think we are validated in our decision to bring in a Consultant.

“However, I know that with the brief discussion I had with the representative of the National Universities Commission (NUC) this morning, we may not be able to sustain that for long. We may also take away the responsibility from the people that are saddled with the task of managing the tertiary institutions in Oyo State.

“So, I am prepared to let the Consultant go but we will also need to be sure that the university and tertiary institutions in Oyo State will run under their Governing Councils as intended. So, we will have to give ourselves a little bit of time to gradually phase out the consultants and bring in people of integrity to run the system.”

The duo of Prof Arotiba and Prof Omole, in their separate remarks, commended Governor Makinde for the confidence reposed in them and the members of their committees, stating that they were assured that the government will be speedy in implementing the reports.

This was just as they pledged their continued support to the government.

According to the circular  signed by the Director of Senior Secondary Education, Hajia Binta Abdulkadir, sighted by journalists with   its reference number as ADF/120/DSSE/I  dated 25th May, 2023 and addressed to all Principals of Federal Unity Colleges across the country, It reads,

“Approved fees/ charges for Federal Unity Colleges (1st Term) for new students, new students are expected to part with ₦100,000 instead of the previous N45,000,” the circular read in part.

“The latest fees/charge increment will affect virtually all aspects and activities of the school, including tuition and boarding fees, uniform, text books, deposit, exercise books, prospectus, caution fee, ID card, stationery, clubs and societies, sports, extra lesson, insurance, et al.

The group described the increment as arbitrary, insensitive, ill-timed and inconsistent with President Tinubu’s promise of welfare programmes to help Nigerian parents cope with the economic challenges posed by fuel subsidy removal in the country.

In the same vein, the House of Representatives had earlier in July directed the Federal Ministry of Education to review the new school fees regime in Federal Government Colleges and revert to the old regime.

BREAKING: 2023 UTME: Mmesoma confirms she forged JAMB result

The eight-member panel set up by Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State to investigate the controversies surrounding the results claimed by a candidate in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), Mmesoma Ejikeme, has submitted its report.

Headed by Nkemdili Nnonyelu, a professor, the committee confirmed Miss Mmesoma forged the score of 362 as earlier claimed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.

According to the report, a copy of which was obtained by PREMIUM TIMES, the candidate confirmed she single-handedly forged the result before approaching a cyber cafe for printing.

Christian Aburime, the chief press secretary to Governor Charles Soludo, confirmed the authenticity of the report to this newspaper.

The committee’s report is reproduced below.

7th July, 2023

Prof. C.C Soludo,

Governor, Anambra State.


Recall Mr. Governor that with the recent release of scores of candidates who applied for admission by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and subsequent announcement of Nkechiyere Umeh as the candidate with the highest score of 360, Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma, a 19 year old student of Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, Uruagu Nnewi, from Enugu State, protested to the State Government that she scored 362 and ought to have been so recognised. This has elicited interests and generated serious controversy and misgivings among the general public that the State Government in its wisdom decided to constitute a Committee of Inquiry to look into the underlisted terms of reference;

Review Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma’s JAMB Results and associated documents Conduct interviews with relevant parties, including Elikeme Joy Mmesoma, JAMB Officials and any other individual(s) involved in the process. Provide recommendations based on the findings of the investigation.

The Committee invited Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma, the Principal of Anglican Girls Secondary School, and officials of JAMB for interactive session with the Committee. JAMB officials led by Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Head Public Affairs presented the detailed processes and procedures involved in JAMB admissions, the policy changes that have occurred in the release of UTME scores since 2021 and what specifically transpired between the candidate Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma with registration number: 20230639047FF in her quest to obtain her JAMB score.

JAMB revealed the different times that Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma made several requests to JAMB portal asking for her results at different hours, and each of these times (four in number), she received in her phone, same results from JAMB indicating candidate’s UTME Results to wit: Eng: 64, Phy:54, Bio: 74, Che: 57 with a total aggregate score of 249. JAMB disclosed that the candidate was well informed of her correct score from JAMB. Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma had sent a request to JAMB with a different registration number showing a UTME result of aggregate score of 362, with Eng: 98, Phy: 89, Bio: 94, and Che: 81. The results she sent differed substantially from the standard JAMB format where she got an appropriate rebuttal stating her real score of 249.

Mmesoma Ejikeme, the Anambra student who was accused of manually inflating her 2023 UTME result by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Wednesday confirmed that she received an automated text message from JAMB indicating that her score was 249.

Mmesoma made this known during an interview with Sunrise Daily on Channels Television which was monitored by The PUNCH.

JAMB’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, had earlier revealed that the candidate sent a series of messages to the board’s automated telecoms system, including the results showing an aggregate of 362.

Responding, Mmesoma said the only SMS she sent to JAMB was through its support system: “That’s the only SMS I sent there.

”Asked if she got any feedback, she said, “They didn’t reply. If they check their JAMB Support System, they would see that I sent a text message. They didn’t reply.”

On the claim that she used an Airtel line, Mmesoma replied: “Yes,” but she added it was “not through USSD code”.

“The one I checked through the USSD code is the one of 360 that I saw,” she explained further.

Responding to the claim that the feedback from JAMB showed her score as 249, she agreed.

“Yes,” she said. “After all was said and done, I now saw that I got 249. I sent them a text message there to know what really happened — the JAMB Support System. If they go to their system, they will see it there.”

Confusion, Crisis In Nigeria Popular Teaching Hospital As FG Issues CMD Appointment Letter To Two Persons

Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTHC), Ile-Ife, Osun State is now being rocked with leadership crisis following the issuance of letters of appointment to two different persons as the hospital’s Chief Medical Director.

The development which is now causing ripples among stakeholders in the hospital, has partially crippled the activities of the hospital.

Investigations into the hospital complex at the weekend revealed that the Federal Ministry of Health appointed two Chief Medical Directors (CMD) to take over the hospital leadership positions.

In a report gathered from Tribune online, the letter explained that the appointment came upon the termination of the appointment of Dr Owojuyigbe Muyiwa as acting CMD, on June 22nd by the Permanent Secretary.

The letter reads: “I am directed to inform you that the Permanent Secretary has
approved the termination of your appointment as the Acting Chief Medical

“I am further to state that all processes for the fresh appointment of a substantive Chief Medical Director (CMD) would be initiated and concluded by the Ministry before the expiration of the six (6) months period.”

However, the atmosphere of the hospital became more tensed and enveloped with more complications as another letter which emanated from the federal ministry of health, dated 27th June and addressed to Prof Owojuyigbe instructed him again to proceed as the acting CMD, till July and handover to Dr Adeyemo Adekunle.

The letter, read this: “I have approved the appointment of Dr Adeyemo Adekunle, the Deputy Chairman Medical Advisory Committee (DCMAC) of the Hospital as Acting Chief Medical Director who will be in this capacity for a maximum period of six months, in line with Public Service Rules. All processes for the appointment of a substantive CMD for the Hospital shall be initiated and concluded by the Ministry.”

“You are therefore directed to hand over the affairs of the hospital on or before Friday, 7th July 2023 to the DCMAC OAUTHC, Ile-Ife. This letter supersedes the earlier letter, Ref. SMH557/S.3/IV/125 dated 22nd June 2023 or any other letter.

“You are to ensure peaceful co-existence in the Hospital, till you handover, while Dr Adeyemo Adekunle will by a copy of this letter to continue from where you stopped,” the letter added.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s led Federal Government has announced that the government can no longer bear the financial burden of universities in the country.

PENTALK360 reports that during a media briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, Permanent Secretary for the Federal Ministry of Education, Andrew David Adejo, emphasised that while universities already enjoy autonomy, they lack financial autonomy.

Adejo explained, “Whether we like it or not, the government can no longer foot the bill for universities. That is why we are pursuing private-public partnerships. The universities already have autonomy; what they lack is financial autonomy. Once they obtain it, they will be able to address this issue, and the government is actively working towards that goal.”

In addition to this development, President Tinubu has instructed relevant stakeholders to ensure the disbursement of student loans by the end of the September/October 2023/2024 Academic Session.

Addressing some speculations, Adejo clarified that an inter-ministerial committee would be inaugurated next week to streamline the loan application process, aiming to provide loans to students within six weeks.

He also emphasised that the loan scheme would not solely benefit public school students, as private school students also deserve the opportunity to access the financial support.

Adejo highlighted the need to cover not only tuition fees but also other expenses, such as accommodation and living costs.

“We want to ensure that the loan scheme sustains students throughout their education. It’s not just about paying tuition; it’s about providing a comprehensive solution to support students in their academic journey,” Adejo stated.

He further emphasised that the current act aims to learn from past mistakes, where there were more defaulters than successful loan repayments.

“You can’t give someone a loan and say, pay tuition without sustaining his school. No, you have to get accommodation; even if tuition fees in public universities are free, you still pay for your accommodation and the federal government would not give you loan that will not make sure you get in school, stay in school and graduate”

“We want the current act to learn from the mistake of the past where there are more defaulters than people that paid the bill, the past is like it is a government money come and take and go, free money but that is not going to be the case with this.”

UK Finally Bans Nigerian Students, Others From Bringing Family   Eaglessightnews  reports.

United Kingdom has announced restrictions barring foreign students from bringing family members into the country.

Recall that that this reliable online newspaper’Eaglessightnews’ earlier reported yesterday that UK is set to announce the ban

According to the nation newspaper, The Home Secretary, Suella Braverman announced the ban as part of the push to reduce net migration.

She said all foreign students – apart from those on postgraduate research programmes – will be banned from bringing their dependents from January 2024.

The UK permits dependants to accompany their spouses or parent(s) who have a valid student visa.

Braverman had said there had been an “unexpected” spike in the number of dependents – saying the economic benfits brough by students could “not be at the expense” of the Tory promise to cut immigration.

The ban will affect all master’s students and some other post-graduates, but it will not apply to PhD students who are highly skilled and whose courses last between 3 to 5 years.

If implemented, the crackdown will affect many Nigerian students hoping to pursue their postgraduate studies in the UK, as they accounted for the highest increase in the number of dependants accompanying persons with study visas in 2022.

In what is best described as a major immigration crackdown on foreign students, the United Kingdom is set to announce new restrictions that will most likely stop Nigerian students, other nationalities studying in the UK from bringing their families over.

This crackdown, according to an exclusive report by The Sun UK, will be annocued this week.

The new UK Immigration policy, will see all masters students and many other post grads banned from bringing family over.

However, the ban will not apply to PHD students, whose courses usually last between 3 and 5 years and are very highly skilled, the UK media House reported.

This follows the reports that net migration into the UK has skyrocketed to 1 million. And Tory MPs asking the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, “to get a  grip on the rocketing numbers.”

To get a hold of the climbing numbers, UK ministers are said to be expected to announce the immigration clampdown. This would be on Tuesday or Wednesday.

“There has been an explosion in the number of people coming to Britain piggybacking on their relative’s student visa.

“Students brought 135,788 family members to Britain last year – nine times more than in 2019.

“Last year, 59,053 Nigerian students brought over 60,923 relatives.”

“We have got to get a grip,” a Tory MP told The Sun on Sunday.

REVEALED: 10 Things Women Love About S3x But Are Afraid To Tell You[A MUST READ FOR MARRIED ]-EAGLESSIGHTNEWS


So you won’t see them as cheap, ignore them, disregard their feelings or outright reject them (rejection hurts like hell!) This can make a woman break down emotionally, become frigid, hate sex and see herself as worthless.

Sexual rejection from a husband can make a woman see herself as less desirable and ruin her self esteem by 80%! One of the ways you can boost your wife’s self esteem is to make her know she is super hot, super sexy, and sexually desirable to you.

Why is your wife cold in bed and doesn’t respond sexually to you?
Why does she hate sex?

Why is she frigid?

May be because you don’t know these Ten (10) things and she is sick or afraid of telling you. Get to know them now and set her loose from all inhibition.

By the time you are through and practice them continuously, your wife should have become a glorified husband seductress you never imagined! Let’s go!

Women love variety in bed: Same touch, same way, same method, same place, same time is super boring to a woman! Women love adventure. That is why we don’t wear same clothe 7 days a week. Variety is the spice of sex. How you touch her yesterday may not be how she wants to be touched today. She may want back rub yesterday but toe massage today. It is your job to notice her, read her like a book and know when she wants passion or tenderness.

Women love romance: gentle, passionate kisses, soft touches at the right places gradually sets a woman on fire!

Women love to talk before sex: Listening to her about how her day went makes you super sexy to a woman. Do not undress her till you have undressed her heart.

Women love to be on top: May be not all women but most. It keeps her in charge, control the depth and watch you enjoy her front view.

Women will gladly give a quickie in the kitchen, toilet, anywhere, any how you want it if you will respect her, show love, be tender, affectionate and not see her as a sex object for quick release.

Women love to have their clitoris stroked tenderly, affectionately, appropriately at the right time before and during sex.

Women don’t care about the size of your penis as long as you know how to make good use of it, hit the right place, position at the right angle and get her moan in pleasure.

Women will gladly oblige to any sexual position as long as it gives her orgasm.

The fuel of sexual passion for a woman is love, care, attention, affection and generosity which you make a lifestyle, give her all the time not just at the moment you want sex. It makes her bond with you emotionally and eagerly makes love to you.

Women love long drive and hate premature ejaculation. If you can withhold long enough before shooting and give her some pleasure, she will enjoy love making, enjoy you, pursue you and eagerly have sex with you.


The post is strictly for legally married couples not kids who should be facing their studies. If you go into premarital sex, you lose favour with God, experience shame, sorrow and a crises laden marriage awaits you.

Waiting for sex in marriage pays. You will have all the sex you want and enjoy it to the maximum if you do things right!

There is absolutely no need to rush.


Why Black Women Should Start Breast Cancer Screening Earlier – Physicians

*Why Black Women Should Start Breast Cancer Screening Earlier – Physicians[Photos]

Medical health experts have urged black women to embrace going for breast cancer earlier than their Caucasian counterparts, noting that a recent study has affirmed that it could help curb the incidence of breast cancer complications and deaths.

The physicians were reacting to a new study that suggested that black women were more prone to breast cancer than White women.

According to the physicians, the study has further confirmed that breast cancer in black women tends to be more aggressive hence the need for earlier screening to ensure better treatment outcomes.

The study, carried out by researchers from China, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and Norway, analysed data on 415,277 women in the United States who died of breast cancer from 2011 to 2020.

That data on invasive breast cancer mortality rates came from the National Center for Health Statistics and was analysed with the National Cancer Institute’s SEER statistical software.

The study was published in the JAMA Network Open Journal. The guidelines which were put together by international researchers recommended that black women should screen for breast cancer at 42 instead of at 50.

Reacting to the study, the health experts noted that black women should even consider getting screened earlier than 42, noting for breast cancer for women should start from the age of 40 as against the age of 50 for their Caucasian counterparts.

The experts, a Consultant Medical Oncologist at the University of Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer, Leicester Cancer Research Centre, Dr. Olubukola Ayodele, and a Board Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician and Founder, Dietal Health Labs, Dr. Chisom Njoku told PUNCH HealthWise that the earlier black women get screened for breast cancer, the better for them.

Dr. Ayodele stressed that breast cancer in young black women tends to have more aggressive biology noting that early detection is essential to allow curative outcomes.

Dr. Ayodele said, “One of the reasons for poor survival outcomes in these young black women is late presentation. They tend to have more advanced diseases (stages 2-4) before getting screened.

*Why Black Women Should Start Breast Cancer Screening Earlier – Physicians*

“Breast cancer screening with mammography usually starts at the age of 50 years in many countries. However, for black women, it has been advised to start earlier. Young women usually have denser breast tissue, sometimes making conventional mammography an adequate screening tool.

“In these younger women, ultrasound, MRI, or contrast-enhancing mammography are better ways for screening and identifying breast lumps”.

In her contribution, Dr. Njoku said is important to stress that breast cancer is also deadlier for black women than for any other race.

UTME Candidates Threaten JAMB Officials With knives During Exam

Some candidates for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) threatened officials of The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Kaduna with knives on Tuesday.

The incident happened at the Christ Ambassadors College in Sabon Tasha, Kaduna Centre.

The candidates threatened the officials after they could not sit for the examination due to technical hitches.

Many candidates could not sit for the examination at the centre resulting in complaints from some of the candidates and their parents.

A correspondent who monitored the exercise on Wednesday reported that only 150 candidates wrote the examination in the first batch, and 100 each in the second and third batch.

This amounted to 350 candidates as against the 750 per day, with 250 candidates expected to write the examination per batch.

One of the candidates, Francis Patrick, told NAN that he was scheduled to write the examination by 12 p.m. on April 25.

Patrick, however, said that as of 12:00 p.m., those that were supposed to write the examination at 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. were still writing because they did not start on time.

“We also heard that some of the computers were logging some candidates out while they still had time remaining to finish the examination.https://ad.a-ads.com/1710553?size=300×250#amp=1

“I stayed till 6:00 p.m. and eventually could not write the examination. I came this morning only to be told some of us that could not write yesterday were asked to submit our examination slips.

“Now, I do not know what to do,” he fumed.

Another candidate, Veronica Isuwa, said she was supposed to write the examination at 9:00 a.m., but was rescheduled for the following day.

Debora Eze, also a candidate, told NAN that she was supposed to sit for the examination on Wednesday by 12:00 p.m. but was told that the systems could only accommodate 100 candidates.

“They asked us to wait for further instructions, so we are waiting”, she said.

Responding to the issue, the JAMB Supervisor at the centre, Mrs Balkisu Abdullahi, explained that the server could not accommodate 250 computers at a time, as planned.

Abdullahi said that candidates who missed the examination on the first and second days were asked to submit their examination slips to enable JAMB to reschedule their examination to another day.

She regretted the technical hitches, adding that JAMB was working with the centre management to address the issue, just as she assured parents that no child would miss the examination.

She however advised parents to guide their children and inculcate good morals in them, saying that coming to examinations with knives was unacceptable.

“The situation on Tuesday was terrifying as some of the candidates were wielding knives and threatening us when we were explaining the technical hitches and what we intended to do to remedy the situation.

“The parents did not also help the issue when rather than calming their children, some of them were shouting at the top of their voices, threatening to take legal action against JAMB,” she added.

On her part, the School Manager, Mrs Tosin Akinpeloye, explained that the technical hitches occurred because the JAMB server was upgraded to work well on computers with Co i7 processors.

Akinpeloye said that the school computer centre had 260 laptops and 20 desktop computers but running on Co i5 processors, adding that a server that would accommodate all the computers had been brought.

“I assure you that all the candidates that will write the examination on Thursday will do so without a hitch,” she said.

The situation was, however, different at Kaduna State University centre, where the JAMB Coordinator, Mr Benedict Opke, said that the facilities were working perfectly and the candidates well behaved.

One of the candidates at the centre, 15-year-old Favour Bamiboye, who wants to become a doctor, said that the examination went smoothly without a hitch.

Similarly, some of the candidates who wrote the examination at Queen Amina College centre commended JAMB, and the school management for a hitch-free exercise.

“This is the first time I am writing the UTME, and I am impressed because everything went smoothly,” one of the candidates at the center.Hafsat Abubakar has said .

Good News: WhatsApp Users Can Now Use Same Account on Multiple Phones-Eaglessightnews

WhatsApp users can now use same account on multiple phones

The CEO of Meta, the parent company of the popular messaging app, WhatsApp, Mark Zuckerberg, has announced a new update to the app which will enable users to log into as many as four smartphones with the same account simultaneously.

In a statement posted to his verified Facebook page on Tuesday, Zuckerberg wrote, “Starting today [Tuesday], you can log into the same WhatsApp account on up to four phones.”

Prior to the Tuesday announcement, users could only log into one account on only one phone, and an attempt to log in on another phone would log the user out of the previous phone.

WhatsApp users are no longer restricted to using their account on just a single phone, a report by The Verge says.

“One WhatsApp account, now across multiple phones” is how the messaging service describes the new feature.

Setting up a secondary phone to use with a WhatsApp account happens after doing a fresh install of the app. Except, rather than entering user’s phone number during setup and logging in as usual, the user will instead tap a new “link to existing account” option. This will generate a QR code to be scanned by the primary WhatsApp phone via the “link a device” option in settings. The new feature works across both iOS and Android devices, according to The Verge.

16-Year-Old Girl Horrified To Discover Mystery Man Blackmailing Her For Naked Photos Was Her Dad(Read How it Started)

Girl, 16, horrified to discover mystery man blackmailing her for naked photos was dad

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, sent pictures to the anonymous blackmailer because she thought her family would be harmed.

A 16-year-old girl has been left horrified after discovering her own father was the one blackmailing her for naked pictures of herself.

The young girl was forced to send explicit topless photos to the vile troll by threatening to expose her to her friends and family.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, sent pictures to the anonymous blackmailer because she thought her family would be harmed.

But she had no idea that the person targeting her on Instagram was her own 36-year-old father and that he was a paedophile with an interest in extreme porn.

The predator was placed on the Sex Offenders Register today after he admitted extortion and collecting indecent images of children.

The man, formerly of Arbroath, admitted intending to menace his daughter between March 24, 2020 and February 3, 2022 by threatening to harm her family if she did not send him explicit photographs.

He admitted extorting naked images of the teenager by subjecting her to threats.

He also admitted having indecent images of children at his home between the same dates, and having bestiality images between December 4, 2020 and February 3, 2022.

Fiscal depute Lynn Mannion told Dundee Sheriff Court: “The accused was 36 at the time and resided with his partner, son and 16-year-old daughter.

“On January 26, 2022 the police received confidential information about indecent images which may be held at his home address.

“A search warrant was granted and his partner answered the door. His son and daughter were also there. The accused was at work at the time.

“The officers asked him to return home. The nature of the inquiry was explained to him and an iPhone was taken from him.”

The prosecutor told the court that child exploitation material was recovered from the man’s phone and further analysis was carried out by specialist officers.

Ms Mannion said it contained 11 videos of child abuse featuring girls aged between six and 12. The accused was arrested and taken to police HQ.

When a full forensic analysis was carried out, it emerged that there were four images of a girl exposing her breasts which had been sent directly to his phone.

Further investigation established that the pictures had been sent by his own daughter and a message trail showed he had been secretly blackmailing her.

Ms Mannion said: “She was interviewed and said she had been contacted by an unknown person on Instagram and asked for ‘pictures of her tits’.

“She was told that if she didn’t send the images he would hurt her family.”

The accused claimed to police that he had become aware of his daughter sending pictures to other people on social media and wanted to check if it was true.

“He admitted being responsible and said he was trying to catch her out sending naked images,” the fiscal depute said.

The accused told police: “I don’t know. It was a stupid moment of madness. She was sending pictures to random people. I want to make it clear it was not for sexual attraction or anything like that.”

But the court was told that the man was found with a collection of nearly 700 child porn images and videos, featuring children aged between four and 15.

He had also been viewing vile porn material featuring extreme violence and bestiality between adult humans and animals.

Solicitor Brian Bell, defending, said his client was aware that there was a serious possibility of him being sent to prison.

Sheriff Jillian Martin-Brown granted the man bail and deferred sentence upon him for the preparation of social work background reports.

She said: “As your solicitor has highlighted, this is a serious matter and custody is an option.”

RELATIONSHIP: Undisputed Signs Your Relationship Will Survive Any Turbulence

EXCLUSIVE: Undisputed Signs Your Relationship Will Survive Any Turbulence

Most relationships are usually doomed from inception owing to the prevalence of destructive attitudes and perceptions.

It’s essential to understand that the ability of any relationship to survive turbulence rests squarely on certain factors, and the absence of these factors can effortlessly impel the subjugation of any relationship.

That certain relationships can survive the very turbulence that ruined other relationships beyond repairs is stating the obvious.

There exist certain signs that points clearly to the fact that a certain relationship will survive the worst turbulence, so, keeping an eye on these signs with regards to your relationship is highly crucial. Here are the signs as exclusively gathered from Gistmate.

  1. Unsolicited sacrifices
    Do you both sacrifice passionately for each other in the absence of much persuasion? Quite often, we hardly experience negative feelings while trying to ensure the comfort of someone we deeply cherish.

If you both stretch to the extent of doing things that inclines the status of each other as well as instigating profound fulfillment in the absence of any request, your relationship will survive any turbulence.

  1. You both constitute a priority to each other
    If you both constitute a priority to each other, turbulence can hardly prevail against your relationship.

Most relationships are swathed with lip service and gross insincerity. Partners here are disguisedly at opposite lane with each other.

Contrary to these, if your actions towards each other reflect undisputed preference, your relationship will certainly survive any turbulence.

  1. You both can’t stand each other’s absence
    Do you both put calls through to each other for flimsy reasons?

If your relationship has gotten to a point where you spend the entire weekend together and by Monday you feel you’ve been apart for years, you are navigating to the right direction. Do you run to each other as if you are being chased by a monster?

Do you feel sick whenever he travels for official reasons or does he complain same? If these rightly describe the state of your relationship, the prevalence of any turbulence is a huge joke.

  1. Discomforts are always welcomed
    Are you always happy to extend unsolicited backings when need spring? Does he feel the same way too?

When your relationship gets to a level where you bluntly refuse to call discomfort its real name, you are both heading to a positive destination.

Factually, there exist relationships where partners are at home with convenience alone, should any unprecedented need to run around on a partner’s behalf springs, they frown.

If you both embrace discomforts regarding each other with sincere smile on your faces, your relationship is in a better position to give turbulence a bloody nose.

  1. You both fight fair
    Most relationships are characterized by cumulative prejudice which stretches as far as defeating the very aim of the union. There exist also, relationships with zero tolerance for prejudice and misconceptions.

Partners here fight fair and speak their minds regarding prevailing issues and consequently see the need to proffer befitting solution as well as embracing peace. If your relationship falls into this category, it will definitely survive any turbulence.

  1. You both abhor the concept of lying to each other. If you sincerely tell each other the truth at all times, your relationship is safe owing to the prevalence of trust.

Reasonably, you are both humans, there’s that possibility of being impelled by situation to lie against your wish, but a multitude of truths can swathe a tiny lie.

Truth breeds trust, so, if you constantly tell each other the truth, turbulence will certainly be unable to ruffle the feather of your relationship.

  1. You are always clinching on each other
    Are you both finding it difficult to keep your hands off each other?

If so, you have a sublime bond that’s quite capable of shielding your relationship against turbulence. There exist dramatic relationships where partners maintain unhealthy space between them (both in private and public places).

They only get to each other when one of them (in most cases the man) gets tormented by the urge and once he’s done, they get away from each other thereby making way for the usual space. If this doesn’t describe your relationship, kudos!

  1. You both are sincerely comfortable with each other. How comfortable are you with each other? You must have been acquainted with the other side of each other,

So, how do you both feel about that? Truth is, if you are sincerely comfortable with each other, your relationship stands a better chance of defying raging turbulence.

  1. You don’t envisage material gains from each other. If your relationship is founded on ridiculous material expectations, it will certainly crash like badly packed cards.

Being in a relationship with someone with the sole aim of reaping material gains is such a dishonorable thing to do. If you aren’t in that relationship with the sole aim of reaping material gains, it will certainly survive any turbulence.

  1. You both strive to be sustainably irresistible. An irresistible partner is certainly everyone’s qdream. If you both strive to appear sustainably irresistible despite inevitable fluctuations in all department of life,

Turbulence will have a hard time invading your relationship. The sight of a charming partner is certainly a formidable spell any time any day.

Oyo Govt. Tasks Education Secretaries on Discipline, Morals in Schools

…Hints on Redistribution of Teachers

The Oyo State Government has urged Education Secretaries to strive to impart discipline and sound morals within their Local Government Universal Basic Education Authorities for the overall good of the State.

The Government equally stressed the importance of the State’s religious diversity and the need to tolerate one another.

The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran, who gave the advice at a meeting with Education Secretaries today, said their duties were not just about academics, but as vehicles for instilling moral values in their subordinates.

The Executive Chairman noted that Education Secretaries, their teaching and non-teaching staff must be disciplined, in order to be able to impart sound morals and discipline in schoolchildren.

Adeniran also said the Oyo State through the Board, will not tolerate religious intolerance.

He added that no religious bigotry will be tolerated in the State public schools.

He observed that every religion and law protects the life of every citizen, adding that no pupil must be coerced into a belief system he/she finds unpersuasive.

“It is important that each Education Secretary must be self-disciplined, otherwise they will lose the right to discipline others, as immediate role models to others”.

Dr. Adeniran, while commenting on the scarce number of teachers in public schools, hinted on a possible redistribution of teachers across the State.

The Education administrator who noted that there is an urgent need to correct the lopsidedness of teachers’ deployment in Oyo State, added that an intra-local Government distribution will aid Education in the State.

He therefore charged each Education Secretary to compile lists of teachers in each school under their supervision, as well as the enrollment in each school.

The OYOSUBEB boss warned Education Secretaries and teachers against extortion or imposition of unauthorised levies on students, noting that offenders would be sanctioned. 

Dr. Adeniran reiterated that the Oyo State Government would not condone any corrupt practices by any Education Secretary or headteacher.

Adeniran, who also hinted that the Oyo State Government has completed hundreds of school projects across all local governments, added that the Oyo State Government will soon embark on completion of some abandoned projects.

He said most of the projects were abandoned by contractors hired by the past administration in the State.

In a copy of the enrolled order seen late in Monday, Justice Eneche particularly said:

Just In:CBN Orders Banks To Pay New Notes Over The Counter

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has reversed itself and directed banks to commence paying customers new Naira notes Over The Counter (OTC).

The apex bank said the order was to reduce queues around Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) across the country.

CBN Governor Godiwn Emefiele gave the directive in Abuja on Thursday.

As contained in the Nation’s report, a statement from CBN’s Director Corporate Communication Osita Nwanisobi, explained banks can only pay N20,000 of the new notes over the counter per day to individuals.

The statement reads: “The Govenor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, has directed Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) to commence the payment of the redesigned Naira notes over the counter, subject to a maximum daily payout limit of N20,000”.

To ensure the effective distribution of the newly introduced naira banknotes, the CBN urged Nigerians “to exercise patience as the CBN is working assiduously to address the challenge of queues at ATMs”.

Speaking to the long queues at ATM points, Nwanisiobi lamented the queues at ATMs across the country “and an upward trend in the cases of people stocking and aggregating the newly introduced banknotes”.

He said these people “serially obtain cash from ATMs for reasons best known to them. Also worrisome are the reported cases of unregistered persons and non-bank officials swapping banknotes for members of the public, purportedly on behalf of the CBN”. 

The CBN spokesman appealed to Nigerians “to embrace and adopt other payment channels for their transactions.

The CBN spokesman appealed to Nigerians “to embrace and adopt other payment channels for their transactions.

“There are moves now by the CBN and security agencies to go after party goers who abuse the Naira. In the same statement, Nwanisiobi said “it is unlawful to sell the Naira, hurl (spray), or stamp on the currency under any circumstance whatsoever” describing those engaging in these practices as “unpatriotic persons”

The CBN particularly frowned at those “who sell the newly redesigned banknotes and those who flagrantly abuse the legal tender by hurling wads of Naira notes in the air and stamping on the currency at social functions”.

To stop this practice, Nwanisiobi said “the CBN is collaborating with the Nigeria Police, Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) to address the unpatriotic practice”.

He warned Nigerians, “particularly those at social functions such as birthdays, weddings and funerals, to desist from disrespecting the Naira or risk being arrested by law enforcement agencies”.

According to him, “the Naira is our legal tender and symbol of national pride. Therefore, let us respect it and handle it with care”.

For emphasis, Nwanisiobi drew party goers’ attention to “section 21(3) of the Central Bank of Nigeria Act 2007 (As amended) which stipulates that “spraying of, dancing or matching on the Naira or any note issued by the Bank during social occasions or otherwise howsoever shall constitute an abuse and defacing of the Naira or such note and shall be punishable under the law by fines or imprisonment or both.”

Also, Section 21(4) states that “It shall also be an offence punishable under Sub-section (1) of this section for any person to hawk, sell or otherwise trade in the Naira notes, coins or any other note issued by the Bank.”

PHOTOS:Why Men Have Morning Erections

Why Men Have Morning Erections

Every morning, it is not only the sun that rises.

Morning wood or nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) are morning erections men experience.
Even doctors are not sure why. Some people think sexual stimulation or needing to pee causes morning wood but this is not true.

These erection happens even when men are sleeping and it doesn’t mean they are having a sexual dream. An erection can last for up to two hours while he is sleeping.

Waking up to an erection is a good thing. Plus, most erections will go down a few minutes after waking up.

If you have an erect penis when you wake up, it means there is a healthy supply of blood to the penis, it also means getting an erection when awake won’t be hard for you – did you get the pun?

Anyway, if you do not get morning erections anymore then you should be worried. It could be a sign of erectile dysfunction.

A man’s military hand holds a banana on a gray background.

Several theories exist about why erections happen here are some of them;

Touching your partner’s body while asleep
Sleeping next to your partner and touching their body can cause you to have an erection. even when you are sleeping, your body might just be responding to them.

High testosterone
When you wake up, your testosterone is at an all-time high, the high level of testosterone can cause morning erections.

Brain relaxation
In the daytime, your body suppresses spontaneous erections. At night you can have as many erections as you want because you are so relaxed and your body releases less of the hormone inhibiting erections.

Men start experiencing morning erection from as early as 7 years old till they are about 70.

Just In: Makinde Inaugurates Implementation C’ttee For Emmanuel Alayande University Of Education

A recent update gathered by Eaglessightnews’ on the newly certified Emmanuel Alayande University of Education affirms that Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde has Inaugurated the Implementation and Secretariat Committees for the newly established Emmanuel Alayande University .Westernmirror reports.

Governor Makinde during the inauguration also vowed to leave a legacy of sound and qualitative education with the people saying the new university of education will soon become a topmost institution in Nigeria for acquisition of degrees in the field of education.

Governor Makinde made this known today in Ibadan during the inauguration of the two committees saddled with the responsibility of laying a strong foundation for smooth and effective take off of the new institution.

“When we came in, this was in May, what we met on ground for LAUTECH was that Oyo state would pay subvention from January to June and then Osun state would pay from July to December. So, when I came in I paid the one for May and then I paid the one for June, and I was expecting that Osun state would take over but we were having stories. So myself and Professor Omole sat down and discussed, and said well, we are going after the sole ownership thing anyway so, we might as well just start paying.

“Then, when we got to NUC for the sole ownership three or four months later, that was one of the strongest point for us. They could not say we can not pay because we have been paying for this period, So, we have demonstrated that capacity. So, my answer is that those critics, I mean not even our regular supporters, should vote omituntun 2.0, and then we can show them how we will repeat that feat.” The Governor said.

While dousing concerns of some of the staffers of the old Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Governor Makinde assured that the his administration will be mindful of the intricacies especially those feeling they may not fit into the new system.

He noted that the assignment before the Committee is not new but it’s a big task that must be accomplished. Prof Omole promised that the committee will do its best to be able to deliver in good term while promising to discharge their duties with courage and integrity.

‘How to strengthen trade unions, workforce in digital age

‘How to strengthen trade unions, workforce in digital age

The urgent need to revitalise trade unions, strengthen their unity, attract more young people and organise workers in the digital economy has been emphasised.

A study by the International Journal of Labour Research, launched by the Bureau for Workers’ Activities (ACTRAV) at the International Labour Organisation (ILO), said that geopolitical tensions, climate change and natural disasters, as well as armed conflicts and food and financial crises, are exacerbating inequalities and violations of workers and trade union rights.

The report urged trade unions to strengthen their unity and cooperation and calls for new forms of work to be organised, especially on digital platforms, where young people are over-represented.

The report, ‘Trade union revitalisation: organising new forms of work Including platform workers,’ shared best practices for innovative strategies that trade unions can adopt to strengthen their organisations, with recommendations to build strong, representative and resilient workers’ organisations globally.

Director of ACTRAV, Maria Helena Andre, who noted that trade unions play an important role in ensuring peace, social justice and decent work for all, said the ILO strongly believed that the revitalisation of trade unions was possible.

For this to happen, she said it was important that trade unions strengthen their unity and develop innovative strategies to attract and organise workers in new forms of work, especially those in the digital economy.

According to her, more young people should be attracted to trade unions to reinforce their membership, expressing hope that the issue will stimulate reflections and actions to strengthen the trade union movement.

The 2022 edition of the review contained a series of recommendations, which extended unionisation to groups in vulnerable situations and addressed strategic objectives, such as the creation of decent employment, decent work deficits, low wages, the impact of climate change and gaps in social protection.

It also added that attracting young people was a critical concern for an increasingly ageing labour movement.

It stated that the the growing digital economy is challenging the fundamental governance of labour, but if engaged properly, young people can open an important avenue to increasing membership and strengthening trade unions. Trade unions are urged to strengthen their digital skills and knowledge to address the challenge of digitalisation in the world of work. They must adopt innovative strategies to mobilise and organise workers in new forms of work, including those in the platform economy.

Why NYSC should be optional – Banky W

Why NYSC should be optional – Banky W

Famous singer turned politician, Olubankole Wellington, a.k.a Banky W has explained why the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, should be optional in Nigeria.

Banky W, who made this assertion on Tuesday during an interview on Channels Television, stated that the NYSC program hasn’t achieved everything it was designed for since its existence.

“I don’t know if there is anybody that will disagree that NYSC probably does not achieve everything it was originally designed for today, so how do we reform it? Don’t cancel it, let’s remove it from the constitution and make it optional, the people who do not need it will go.

“Now you can pay those interested more so instead of paying them N30,000 monthly which does nothing for a young person in Nigeria today. We can pay them N60 – N80, 000,” he said.

Half Salary: Unilag Lecturers, Students,Protest Over Casualization of …(Video) Eaglessightnews

Just in: Unilag Lecturers, Students, Protest Against Half Salary,Casualization of Academics By Buhari -Led Administration , Demand For Full Pay, Redemption of Bergain, Others (Video)

Eagle’s Sight News reports that the Lecturers of the University of Lagos, Students, Civil Society and Educational Right Campaigns (ERC) on Tuesday joined Asuu in the present trial.

The gathering protested against what they called “casualisation” of academics in the country by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

The protest was held after a special congress called by the university’s chapter of ASUU to appraise the poor welfare condition of its members, and particularly the withholding of the workers’ eight-month salary and the payment of October salary on a pro-rata basis.

Recall, few weeks ago the Federal Government has used imposition of law to order ASUU to resume work.

Asuu strike lasted for 8-month after the Association insisted on Funding for the revitalisation of public universities,Payment of earned academic allowances (EEA),review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues.

The lecturers were joined by other labour union activists including the leadership of the Joint Action Front (JAF), a coalition of labour movements in the country, and a civil society organisation- Education Rights Campaign (ERC) and passerby.

Asuu lamented that their demand has been altered through imposition of law and threat. Also, upon resumption the union complained of maltreatement by the payment of half salary.

The union said the rally was staged to “draw the attention of Nigerians to Ngige’s and Government’s attempt at the casualisation of the academics in Nigeria.”

Chris Ngige, a medical doctor, is Nigeria’s Minister of Labour and Productivity, who had accused the lecturers union of frustrating negotiations.

But ASUU has consistently accused Mr Ngige of deliberately misinforming the public, and causing more harm than good for the country.

In a remarks by ASUU UNILAG Chairman, Dele Ashiru as further captured from Premium Times, He said: “This rally is to draw the government’s attention to the insensitivity and intention to stoke another round of crisis in the Nigerian university system.“It is sad to note that the government has deployed all kinds of weapons including that of humiliation, hunger, harassment, blackmail and also using the instrumentality of the judiciary to coerce our members back to work.“Our union suspended the strike to pave the way for the government to substantially address our demands.‘We looked at all the issues in totality and came to the conclusion that students and their lecturers are partners in the business of knowledge production and consequently we will not allow government to disrupt the calendar again.“So rather than go on strike, we have decided to organise this rally to draw the government’s attention and all stakeholders in Nigeria to the fact that the government is stoking another crisis within the Nigeria university system”.According to the plight of the protesters in lagos on Tuesday during a video interview by EAGLESSIGHTNEWS Correspondence , a member of Educarion Right Campaign identified as Moshud , explained that the protest is a synergy of the ERC- civil society, students and lecturers clamouring against the attempt by the federal government to casualize the agitated workers in the education sector…


Unionists During Protest

The full demands are stated,
•Reversal of all hiked fees and charges. For improved funding of public education and democratic management of the school.
•Improvement in teaching and hostel facilities
•Reduction in cost of airtime and data to encourage virtual learning
•Meet the demand of all staff unions
•Provision of free, functional and democratically-managed public education at all levels.

 The House of Representatives also intervened in the matter, raising the hope that the union may call off the strike soon.

The PUNCH gathered that most of the over 123 branches of the union have completed their congresses on the lingering strike. More to come.

Just In: Appeal Court Orders ASUU to call off strike

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has granted the application for leave to appeal filed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The leave so granted allows ASUU to formally challenge the interlocutory order issued by the National Industrial Court, directing its members to resume work pending the determination of the substantive suit filed by the Federal Government against the strike embarked upon by ASUU.

In a ruling on Friday, a three-member panel of the court, led by Justice Hamma Barka ordered the striking lecturers to “immediately” call off its eight-months strike.

The court struck out ASUU’s request for stay of execution of the Industrial Court’s order, which it’s lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) withdrew on Thursday.

The appellate court said should ASUU fail to re-open the universities, the order to appeal against the interlocutory injunction of the National Industrial Court “will be automatically vacated.”

It gave the lecturers’ union seven days within which to file its notice of appeal against the order of the the National Industrial Court.Sourced from Nation news.

ASUU Strike: Confusion, Uncertainty As FG Issues License To CONUA, NAMD

Hope of the quick resolution of the labour dispute between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, deemed on Tuesday as the former went ahead to register parallel unions in the academic community.

It is, however, uncertain how the government’s action could lead to the re-opening of the public universities.

The move, which is seen as an effort to break the ranks of ASUU, came after a National Industrial Court had also earlier ordered ASUU to return to work, a judgement ASUU has appealed.

The FG had last week issued a circular directing Vice Chancellors to re-open the universities. However, it was understood that following interventions from stakeholders, including the leadership of the House of Representatives, the order was withdrawn.

But with the Labour Ministry’s action, there are pointers that the gains made during the meeting between the ASUU and the Reps leadership may also be lost.

Already ASUU has dismissed the new bodies, declaring that they do not pose any threat to its existence.

The National President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, while reacting to the development, said, “That does not in any way affect us. We are a disciplined and focused union and we know what we are doing and what we are after. Let them register as many unions as they like. The sky is big enough for birds to fly”.

Hello further declared that ASUU members are not saboteurs or bootlickers, adding that its members know their vision and mission.

Also speaking on the development, a senior lecturer in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, who spoke under anonymity, said the Federal Government was wasting its time.

He noted that “if the Federal Government could not succeed in breaking the ranks of the Nigeria Labour Congress, how on earth does it think it will succeed this time?

“We heard the so-called new union has a factional presence in 12 universities; assuming without conceding that such is true, how would you compare that with the ASUU structure?

“What is clear is that the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige is deceiving President Muhammadu Buhari. He has not been sincere ever since the strike commenced and his action today (yesterday) has clearly shown that.

“We welcome his group, it is not enough to issue them with a license, let them go and lecture the students.”

He called on the Federal Government to descend from its Olympian height and embrace a mutual deliberation with the university lecturers.

In the meantime, the industrial action is now gradually taking over a full academic session, with students expressing frustrations across the country.

While many of them have died while engaging in one menial job or the other, a number of them are still in a state of confusion.Sourced from daily post

Just In:AGF Offers To Accommodate ASUU’s Peculiarities Allowance On IPPIS|Eagle’s Sight News

AGF offers to accommodate ASUU’s peculiarities allowance on IPPIS

The Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF), has accepted to accommodate the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) peculiarities allowances in the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information Payment System (IPPIS).

Mr Okolieaboh Sylva, the acting Accountant General of the Federation, said this at a meeting of the union with the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr Chris Ngige and the leadership of the House of Representatives on Thursday in Abuja.

Sylva said that if there were peculiarities allowances in ASUU’s pay, what needed to be done was to incorporate them into the platform, adding that the office of the Accountant General was willing to incorporate ASUU’s peculiarities.

“Let us sit down and know what these issues are and address them inside IPPIS. We can correct whatever mistake we make now, ” he said.

Sylva expressed reservations over ASUU’s insistence on the incorporation of the UTAS payment platform for its members.

“If we accept what ASUU is saying, it will create room for everyone to be asking for their own payment platform, the military is on IPPIS and health workers, ASUU should sit down with us and see the progress we have made,” he said.

Sylva said that the incorporation of ASUU’s demand on IPPIS platform could be done without President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval, adding that there was nothing complicated about the issue once ASUU agreed to the offer.

“In the spirit of reconciliation, if ASUU knows what can be done, we are willing to adopt it to resolve this issue. It doesn’t make sense not to accept, let ASUU come to us, we are willing to accept.

“If we are going to adopt UTAS, that shows we are going to build the salaries of other civil servants to UTAS,” he said

Speaking, Dr Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Productivity said the federal government would not offer ASUU what it does not have.

Ngige said that the ASUU leadership met with the President on Jan.9 with the hope of convincing the government to adopt it UTAS platform for lecturers’ salaries.

“I told Mr President to let us give it a trial and I took it upon myself, I went to NITDA and other agencies and we looked at the system,” he said.

He said that the three platforms brought by ASUU failed the integrity test, adding that he couldn’t recommend the adoption of any of them, no matter the pressure.

Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, President, of ASUU said it was unfortunate that Nigerians failed to understand how the university system operates.

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila appealed to ASUU to call off its ongoing strike.

He added that the executive had spoken, just as the judiciary, and the legislature.

“Everybody cannot be wrong.

“We are working according to everything we said in our last meeting, please in the interest of our children, we have called you in spite of the court ruling,” he said..

On the issue of UTAS, Gbajabiamila said the report was with the lawmakers.

“We are more or less working for you. There comes a time all conflicts come to an end. We will make our recommendation to the President.

“You have a very good case, the minister dropped a bombshell before he left but I didn’t pay attention. I understand your feeling and emotion.

“You are not doing it for yourself but for the enabling environment and the future of our children. Please let’s take it and get to the final destination,” he said

BREAKING: FG orders VCs to reopen varsities, commence lectures

Eagle’s Sight News has just gathered that the Nigeria Federal Government has instructed Vicechancellors have been to reopen institutions for students to continue lectures through the National Universities Commission.

Recall the national industrial court of Nigeria on Wednesday ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities to call off its ongoing nationwide Eagle’s Sight News previously reported.

This new move on Asuu strike was disclosed in a circular written by Professor A Vice-chancellors Abubakar Rasheed, the commission’s executive secretary, and signed by Sam Onazi, the NUC’s director of finance and accounts.

A letter issued to all vice chancellors, pro chancellors, and chairs of governing councils of federal institutions was made exclusively available to The PUNCH on Monday.

“Ensure that ASUU members immediately resume/commence lectures; Restore the daily activities and routines of the various University campuses”, the letter partly reads.

11 State Varsities Shun ASUU, FG Threatens Unions

No fewer than 11 state universities are not participating in the strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

Our correspondents reported on Monday that academic activities were going on in universities owned by Osun, Rivers, Delta, Borno, Anambra, Kwara and Akwa Ibom states as well as the three universities owned by Lagos State.

Also ahead of the National Universities Commission meeting with vice-chancellors and pro-chancellors of federal universities today (Tuesday), the Federal Government on Monday vowed to end the culture of strikes in tertiary institutions in the country.

But as the strike by ASUU entered its 204th day, lecturers in some state universities are not on strike.

Lecturers in two universities owned by Rivers State, Ajuru University of Education, Port Harcourt and the Rivers State University, Port Harcourt, did not join the strike.

At the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Port Harcourt, academic activities were going on as many of the students were writing examinations on Monday.

A final year student of Political Science, Master Ovum Amadi in an interview with The PUNCH said he was preparing for his examinations next week. He said, “Examinations have started. Those in 200-level have started.”

When contacted, a member of ASUU in the university, Dr Mandah Stanley, said the union in the institution was in court over some leadership issues.

The spokesman for the university, Dr. Ngozi Okiridu, said the institution had no reason to join the strike for two main reasons.

She said the university is a teacher training institution. He added, “Governor Nyesom Wike pays our salaries promptly every month. He has not failed to pay for one day.”

Our correspondent also observed that academic activities were in progress at Osun State University.

The Acting Chairperson of ASUU in the university, Dr Weinde Olaosebikan, said lecturers in the institution did not join the ongoing strike because the branch was suspended by the national leadership of ASUU.

Also, the Delta State University, Abraka, was in session despite the position of the ASUU branch in the university.

A student, who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity, said the second semester exam was going on in the university.

But the ASUU Chairman DELSU chapter, Prof Godwin Demaki, said that his members were not among lecturers working.

He said, “DELSU has over 300 lecturers of which about 200 are full members of ASUU.

“The remaining have yet to join the union and these are the one that are going to lecture halls to teach and they do it in disguise because when they see us trying to enforce the strike, they will run.”

The Technical University, Ibadan is not affected by the strike. The university which is owned by Oyo State Government is a fee paying varsity.

The Public Relations Officer for the Technical University, Mr Akeem Lasisi, when contacted told our correspondent that the university was not affected by incessant ASUU strike.

The Anambra State-owned  Chukwuemeka Odumekwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam, is also not affected by the strike.

The school’s Public Relations Officer, Dr Harrison Madubueze, who spoke to one of our correspondents on the telephone, on Monday, said the institution had never been part of the ASUU strike, not to talk of pulling out.

But the school’s ASUU branch chairman, Osita Chiaghanam, declined comment on the issue. A 200-level student of the Department of Social Sciences,  Rebecca Uzor, said the students did not know if ASUU was on strike as they were not affected, saying that normal lectures had been going on at the institution without any disruption.

Normal lectures were going on at Kwara State University, Malete in the Moro Local Government Area of the state on Monday.

The PUNCH correspondent observed on Monday that KWASU students were taking their examination which began two weeks ago.

Efforts to reach the Chairman of KWASU branch of ASUU, Dr Salau Sheu on Monday did not yield result as he did not respond to calls to his phone number but he had earlier told the correspondent in an earlier interview that the lecturers in the institution did not join the strike because of a clause of the ASUU constitution which exempts new members from joining any industrial action until a stipulated period.

An ASUU member at Lagos State University, Ojo, Dr Gbenga Owolabi of the Department of Mass Communication, explained that LASU did not join the ongoing ASUU strike because the national body of the union did not recognise the current ASUU-LASU officials who were handpicked by the former vice-chancellor of LASU, Prof. Lanre Fagboun after he sacked the four executives of ASUU-LASU.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has said it is considering a number of options to bring an end to incessant strikes in tertiary institutions across the country.

This was made known in a document titled, “Industrial relations – Tertiary education,” which was prepared by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu and made exclusively available to one of our correspondents in Abuja.

LAUTECH Calls Off Six Months Old Strike, Announces Resumption of Academic Activities

The management of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo State, has called off its unions’ six months old strike.

Eagle’s Sight News recently reported that the resumption date would be announced soon.

A recent update from the institution has confirmed the announcement of the date for the commencement of academic activities for the 2021/2022 academic session which will now resume on Thursday, August 18, 2022.

This was contained in a circular titled: “Release to Staff and Students: Continuation of the First Semester of the 2021/2022 Academic Session”, and signed by the Registrar of the University, Dr. Kayode Ogunleye, on Monday.

Meanwhile, there have been several efforts from government to make the unions resolve all wrangling issues that may be stopping academic activities on campus, with the recent meeting the unions held with Oyo State government last month.

NBS Commences Verification Of BESDA Implementing Schools In Oyo

NBS Commences Verification of BESDA Implementing Schools in Oyo

The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has begun a verification exercise of all Better Education Service for All (BESDA) focused centres in Oyo State.

Speaking at the flag-off of a 5-day training of NBS Enumerators in Ibadan today, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran said the Board would collaborate with NBS to ensure a hitch-free exercise in the State.

Adeniran said his office, in partnership with office of the Statistician General of the State, would ensure the enumerators have unhindered access to the 21 BESDA focus Local Government Areas in the State, adding that this will assist the government in attaining its aim to eradicate Out-Of-School Children menace in the State.

“We assure the NBS management that the State Government, through the Board will accord the verification agents all the necessary support and information they may require”, he said.

Adeniran added that the State Government will ensure pupils in affected BESDA focus-schools stay back, despite the holidays, during the verification exercise, to ease the process.

“BESDA is a programme-for-result, funded by the World Bank to support increase in access to basic education by raising equitable access for Out-Of-School Children (OOSC), improve literacy and strengthen accountability for results in basic education in Nigeria. We are determined to make it work in Oyo State”, Adeniran said.

Adeniran noted that the State is ready for NBS visitation in the selected schools across the state, to verify the authenticity of records kept by the implementing schools.

He added that the Board will also provide data for the assessment of four Disbursement Linked Indicators (DLIs) on which the state would be rewarded.

“We welcome the NBS team and its Enumerators. This particular exercise, which is the second Phase, would be conducted in the 21 BESDA focus LGAs in our State”, he said. 

Oyo Government Reinstates 129 Public Primary School Teachers Sacked by Previous Administration

The Oyo State Government has reinstated 129 public primary school teachers, unlawfully sacked by the previous administration.

The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran stated this today, while congratulating the teachers.

He said the Executive Council of Oyo State has approved that a total of 129 officers wrongly dismissed by the Oyo State Government between 2011 and 2019 for reinstatement, subject to agreeing not to demand for arrears payment for the period they were away which the state converted to leave of absence.

Adeniran appreciated the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde for his kindness and selfless consideration in administering the Pacesetter State. 

He noted that the recent reinstatement of the state’s 129 school teachers who were fired by the previous administration, is a symbolic achievement that cannot be neglected.

“This is a plus for the education sector. Apart from being an addition to the dwindling number of teachers in the public primary sector, thousands of family dependents who have been subjected to untold economic hardship due to the layoff of their breadwinners will now have a new lease of life”, Adeniran said.

Adeniran therefore called on teachers in the state to reciprocate Makinde’s gesture, through commitment to duties and redoubling their dedication to work.

He also called on them to key into the Governor Seyi Makinde-led administration’s goal to change the narratives in the education sector of the state.

Illegal Fees: Oyo Govt. Sanctions Head-Teachers For Denying Pupils Access to Exam Hall 

Illegal Fees: Oyo Govt. Sanctions Head-teachers for Denying Pupils Access to Exam Hall 

The Oyo State Government has sanctioned some Head-teachers for collecting illegal fees and denying pupils access to examination halls during the ongoing Public Primary Schools Unified Examination.

The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran disclosed this today while monitoring the Exams in Ibadan.

Dr. Nureni Adeniran said five Head-teachers of Methodist Basic School, (School 1-5), Gan-gansi were found culpable in the alleged illegal collection of fees, spearheaded by the School-Based Management Committee of the school, who chased the pupils home.

Adeniran, who said the present administration has abolished collection of any development Levy in all schools across the state, frowned at the School authority’s role in compelling parents to contribute the said fee.

“No doubt SBMCs, PTAs can contribute to the development of their local schools. But, it must not in any way affect the education of pupils”, he added.

“No child should be discriminated against, in the State Education sector”, Adeniran insisted.

According to him, some parents had reported to the Board that Headteachers of the school denied their children access to Examination hall for failure to pay N100 development levy charged by the School’s management and SBMC, through a popular radio station in Ibadan.

Adeniran said the present administration, under Governor Seyi Makinde’s leadership would not fold its arms and allow saboteurs to ridicule its efforts in mandating free education.

He added that the ongoing education reforms of the present administration in the State, has yielded huge results that must not be sabotaged.

Dr. Adeniran therefore directed that the affected Head-teachers should be given queries to serve as a deterrent to others who may be collecting such illegal fees.

“For denying Governor Seyi Makinde’s Pupils access to write exams, queries have been issued to Head-teachers of Methodist Basic School, 1-5”, he said.

The SUBEB boss also directed that all learners should be allowed to sit for exams without any form of hindrance. 

He urged Teachers in all public schools to adhere strictly to the State Government’s policies and directives on Education.

Some of the schools visited include, IMG, Ibuko Ibadan South East LGA; Ratibi Muslim school, Molete, South-West; IMG Basic School, Idi-Iroko, Molete.

Adeniran, who led a team of officials from SUBEB also visited Islamic Mission School 1, Bode, Ibadan; Methodist Basic School 1-5, Gan-gansi and Community Primary School, Awotunde, Ona-ara LGA and a host of others.

He said the monitoring exercise continues in the course of the week, which will also be extended to other zones of the State, including Ogbomoso, Oyo, Oke-Ogun and Ibarapa.

Just In: Makinde Lifts Suspension On ‘No Work, No Pay’ For LAUTECH Lecturers

Eagle’s Sight News has gathered that Governor Makinde shortly after meeting with the Union of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, has lifted the no work, no pay ban placed on them.

Recall that Makinde had in June declared the withholding of subvention of lectures of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH who refused to resume to work despite the instruction of the state government for the resumption of academic activities in the university.

Content Of CJNs’ ‘Mystery’ Leather Handbags Revealed

Eagle’s Sight News has gathered from several sources the mystery on the leather handbags used by the Justices of Nigeria.

Here is the full report of the ‘leather handbags as contained in a report published by Within Nigeria.com:

The content of ‘mystery’ leather handbags carried by Chief Justices Of Nigeria has emerged following pictures of past CJNs during their swearing-in showing the senior Justices of the Supreme Court with leather-like tan bags hung on their right shoulders as they took the oath of office.

Justice Olukayode Ariwoola carried the bag during his swearing-in ceremony as the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria on June 27, 2022.

A similar bag was spotted when the immediate past CJN, Tanko Muhammad, was being sworn in, in 2019. Retired Justice Aloma Mukhtar, the country’s only female CJN, who served between 2012 and 2014, was also known for carrying a similar bag.

Aloma’s successor, retired Justice Mahmud Mohammed, who served as the country’s 14th CJN, was not left out in the tradition of carrying a small leather bag.

But Mohammed’s successor, Justice Walter Onnoghen, who was in office between 2017 and 2019 when he unceremoniously left, appeared to be an exception in the CJNs’ tradition of carrying the small leather bag.

Curious Nigerians, who have forever wondered why the CJNs carry the leather bag and what it contains.

According to PUNCH, online sources through the website of the British Library indicated that the special bag is referred to as the ‘Saddle bag Qu’ran.’ It is believed to have originated around the 18th and 19th century.

“This was one of West Africa’s many centres of manuscript production. The manuscript is loose-leaf and kept in a leather bag. This allowed individual pages to be read while travelling, or to be lent out and learned by heart. It is divided into four pages displaying large illuminations. Qur’ans from Bornu were especially sought-after and were exported to North Africa and the Middle East,” part of the article read.

Some senior lawyers also commented on the issue, clarifying the perceived mystery around the leather bag.

Speaking with PUNCH, Ahmed Raji (SAN) said the bag was used to carry the Qur’an, stating that it was also used to show respect for the holy book.

He added, “The bag has a Quran inside and nothing more. It is out of respect for the holy book. It is only for Muslims who want to be sworn in using the Quran. A Christian will hold the Bible, whereas someone who is neither a Muslim nor a Christian may affirm. Everyone is allowed to make a choice according to his/her religion or belief.’’

This may explain why Justice Onnoghen didn’t have the bag on during his swearing-in.

Raji further said, “The bag is always there in the Villa Council Chambers for use when required. You don’t go with any bag from your home. I accompanied the acting CJN to the chamber for his swearing-in. He didn’t go there with any bag.”

Also speaking, an Abuja –based lawyer, Mr Hayatuddeen Mustapha, said, “As a northerner and a Muslim, you will be familiar with that type of bag either at home or in court. It is called the ‘jakan-dalailu.’ ‘Jaka’ is ‘bag’ in Hausa so to qualify it with something else, you add an ‘n’ after it.”

Mustapha also said that the bag was usually made from leather material. He stated, “There is no reason for the use of leather other than it seems like it lasts better than most materials. The Qu’ran in this jakandalailu is handwritten and not printed. It is wrapped in a material and kept inside this bag for safety so that the pages do not get damaged.

“There is another leather also used to wrap the papers which are put in the bag. It is not just for lawyers or Chief Justices. Even if they have adopted it somehow in the Supreme Court to be used to swear-in Muslim justices, it is basically for keeping the Qu’ran.”

The lawyer also stressed that the bag must be hung on the right shoulder except in rare circumstances.

He noted, “It has to be hung on the right hand to give reference to the Holy Book. Inasmuch as people say we are a secular state, we practise religion in every aspect of our lives. When we swear an affidavit or even in court when we want to give a testimony, we either swear with the Bible, Qur’an or you affirm. That goes on to the swearing-in of the CJN.”

Another lawyer, Mr Hussaini Hussaini, said that under the law, people were being sworn in into certain constitutional offices, based on their respective religion. Hussaini added, “Even when the President, Mohammadu Buhari, was sworn in, he hung the bag. There is a process on how public officers would be sworn.

“That bag contains the handwritten Qu’ran. So, it is usually so big and it is fixed in that bag. So, instead of them to hold it in their hands and also read the oath of office, they just hang it on their shoulders.”

Another senior lawyer, Yusuf Ali (SAN), said putting the Qur’an in that bag was an act of reference to the holy book.

“The bag is not part of the legal dress code or anything. It is the Qur’an. The CJNs you see with that bag are Muslims. You know you cannot just hold the Qur’an in your hands like that carelessly, which is why they devised a method to put it in a bag, so one can just hang it. If you are a Christian, you may be given a copy of the Holy Bible.

“It is an act of reference for the holy book. The thing is that when you are being sworn in, you are supposed to hold either the Qur’an or Bible on your left hand and the oath on your right. I am a Muslim and I know one cannot hold the Qur’an that way, so this way is better and easier. It is hung on the right hand.”

An ex-Nigerian Bar Association’s Secretary, Mr Afam Osigwe (SAN), noted that the CJN do not have to bring the bag from home because it resides at the Presidential Villa.

“It contains the Qur’an. From my understanding of it, it is just like one is asked to hold the Bible and swear an oath. So, it is probably the one at the Presidential Villa for such an occasion or oath. They come in a leather-skin bag.

“The Muslims can choose to carry the bag on their right shoulders. It is not peculiar to the legal profession. The first time I took note of that bag was when Justice Mustapha was sworn in and interestingly, most of the other Chief Justices have been Muslims so that is why the bag has continued to become a recurring feature.

“When Onnoghen was sworn in, he did not carry the bag because the Bible is not usually placed in a bag for such occasions. I may not know what Islam says about oath-taking, but I know the religion pays attention to the attitudes around handling the Qur’an; how you handle it and what you do with it.”

On his part, however, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), said the bag was just an act of copycat, where a new CJN wants to be like the predecessor.

Ozekhome said, “I really don’t know the significance of the bag. Some people say it is used in keeping either the Holy Bible or Holy Quran. But it’s recurring as a recycling object that is now raising Nigerians’ eyeballs.

“To me, there is nothing to it as a spiritual relic. It does not look to me mystical, talismanic, transcendental or religious. It appears to be a matter of style and ‘copy-catism’, with each CJN wanting to be like his predecessor.”

Just In: Makinde Visits Israel, Signs Agribusiness Deal With University Of Jerusalem

Eagle’s Sight News reports that Oyo state governor, Engr Seyi Makinde who has been away to Israel in his continous efforts and commitments to move the state forward has signed an agreement of cooperation with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to develop an agribusiness knowledge economy in the state.

This reliable online newspaper ‘Eaglessightnews’ quoted Westernmirror exclusive news gathered from a source at the meeting in Jerusalem today that this development will trigger Agric revolution which will culminate into rapid development of agribusiness in the state as one of its economic mainstays.

It will be recalled that the Executive Adviser and Director-general of Oyo state Agribusiness Agency, Dr Debo Akande recently hosted the Netherlands Condular-General and his team and other foreign and local investors in Ibadan in a bid to fashion out a new course of action to develop Agribusiness in the state.

According to Dr Akande during the one day event recently held in Ibadan, Oyo state has recorded a 27billion naira direct private sector investment in the state within the last three years following the consistency of the state government in its Agribusiness policies and drive.

Governor Makinde, as part of follow up to the state government’s commitment towards what it called agricultural revolution which is expected to create a strong value chain and employment opportunity has penned down a deal with the Israeli university.

According to words captured by this medium on his social handles,

“This afternoon, as part of our visit to Israel to meet investors and institutions that have shown interest in Oyo State’s agribusiness policies, we signed an agreement of cooperation with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to develop an agribusiness knowledge economy.

“The partnership includes scholarship offers, knowledge transfer and exchange programs between the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Oyo State owned Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH).
We also met with Oyo State students at the university.

“During the course of our stay in Israel, we have visited 2 kibbutzes (farm settlements) – a dairy farm and another farm which produces lettuce and fish, to see agritech deployment in modern agribusinesses.”


The Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board (KADSUBEB) says it has dismissed 2,357 teachers who failed the recently conducted competency test.
Its spokesperson, Mrs Hauwa Mohammed, in a statement on Sunday in Kaduna, said the Board conducted a competency test for over 30,000 teachers in Dec. 2021.
She said that 2,192 primary school teachers including the National President of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Mr Audu Amba, had been dismissed for refusing to sit for the competency test.

She said that some 165 of the 27,662 teachers that sat for the competency test were also sacked for poor performances.

Pointblanknews.com recalls that the Kaduna government, in 2018, sacked 21,780 teachers who failed a competency test, and replaced them with 25,000 others recruited through vigorous processes.

In December 2021, the Board also sacked 233 teachers over alleged possession of fake certificates.
“Following the state government’s resolution for continued assessment of teachers to ensure better delivery of learning outcomes for pupils, KADSUBEB conducted another competency test for the teachers in December 2021.
“The services of teachers who scored below 40 per cent are no longer required and their appointments have been terminated from the Public Service for their poor performances.

“Teachers who scored 75 per cent and above were recognised as those who passed the test and qualified for attending courses in leadership and school management,” she said.

According to her, qualified teachers will be included in Teacher Professional Development (TPD) programmes to enhance their capacities to deliver quality teaching to pupils.

Mohammed said teachers who scored between 40 and 74 per cent did not meet up with the minimum pass mark, adding that they would be given a second chance to improve their capacities.

The Board, she said has initiated viable training programmes for teachers under its statutory TPD with support from the state government and development partners.
“The training programmes will be conducted during the end of term vacation and in their respective schools, to minimise disruptions of teaching and learning.

“They are also encouraged to complement the government’s efforts and seek personal development for their own good.

“The board is assuring teachers and the public that it remains committed to ensuring their continuous professional development and the improvement of the learning outcomes of pupils and students,” she said.

Reacting, Mr Ibrahim Dalhatu, State Chairman, NUT, dismissed the competency test and the sacking of the affected teachers as “illegal”.

Dalhatu said the Union had secured a court order restraining the Board from conducting the competency test, adding, however, that it conducted the test without recourse to the rule of law.

He recalled that the Union had asked the teachers not to write the examination after learning that the intent was to sack them.

“We warned that any teacher who participates in the illegal examination would not be protected by the union if victimised but some of the teachers went ahead to write the examination out of fear.

“We are not against the conduct of the competency test if due process is followed, but it should not be used as a basis for sacking teachers.

“The competency test should be used to determine teachers’ capacity gap and tailored specific training programmes to improve their capacities,” he said.

Just In: After FG’s Payment Of Arrears, ASUU Gives Its Decision On Strike

Eagle’s Sight News report that the Academic Staff Union of Universities has insisted that its members won’t resume work despite the Federal Government’s payment of minimum wage arrears.

This was contained in a circular by the University of Lagos branch of the union titled, ‘Payment of minimum wage arrears’.
The chairman of UNILAG ASUU, Dele Ashiru, confirmed the authenticity of the circular to The PUNCH on Saturday.
Ashiru described the arrears payment as “long-overdue”, saying that the core demands of ASUU have not been met.

We ’ll Not Pull Out Of Strike, LAUTECH ASUU Vows

The Ibadan Zone of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), yesterday, in Ogbomoso, said that Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso, remained steadfast and would not pull out of the ongoing strike declared by the national body of the academic union.

According to Vanguard,the union said that LAUTECH ASUU believes in the long-term benefit of repositioning public universities and not driven by primordial sentiments being dished out in some quarters.

Co-ordinator of the zone, Prof. Oyebamiji Oyegoke, who addressed a press conference, stated that the current infrastructure face-lift, which LAUTECH enjoys and TETFUND grants, which its members of staff enjoy were products of ASUU’s struggle without which the institution will not be able to have a semblance of a university.

MEANWHILE, the South-West zone of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) South-West (Zone D), in conjunction with the National Association of University Students (NAUS) in South-West, yesterday, vowed to shut down airports in the country unless the protracted strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) is called off.

In a statement signed by Olatunji Emmanuel Adegboye (NANS Zone D Coordinator), John Alao (NANS Zone D Deputy Co-ordinator), Opeoluwa Awoyinfa (NANS Zone D Public Relations Officer) and Adesoji Oladimeji (Vice President, NAUS South-West) and made available to The Guardian in Ibadan, the unions stressed that the intended step became imperative to put an end to the lingering strike of ASUU and ASUP, and to totally reform the education sector.


Eagle’s Sight News reports that a public support group known as Young Professionals for Peace, Transparency and Development (YPPTD) has fired the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) over reported plea to Presidential Aspirants for funds raising to support the calls for the return of striking lecturers back to schools.

The group described the NANS plan as weak, corrupt and an attempt to raise funds for the private pockets of it’s leadership instead of mobilising a nationwide shut down of the Nigeria systems over the inability of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to ensure the return of lecturers to schools, the fuel and jet fuel crisis that is about to cripple the aviation sector, the naira depreciation, inflation and food scarcity, failure to protect the lives of people, and ensure that all collapsed sectors work for the good of students and the Nigerian people.

In a recent report by PoinBlankNews, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) had on Wednesday appealed to the former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other presidential aspirants to raise money in order to meet the demands of the striking university lecturers.

The student body made the appeal in a statement, signed by the Chairman of NANS, Ogun State Joint Campus Committee (JCC), Comrade Kehinde Damilola Simeon and made available to newsmen on Wednesday.

The University lecturers have been on strike for over three months over the failure of the Federal Government to address some of the key demands of ASUU.

Some of the demands of the Union include: the revitalisation of public universities, earned academic allowances and the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution for payment of university lecturers.

NANS said the appeal came following the failure of the Federal government to accede to the demands of the striking lecturers.

But the group, YPPTD, through its National Coordinator, High Chief Selekumo Ndiaye, in a statement issued via electronic mail, said though the call may have a way to embarrass the President Buhari led administration’s inability to resolve the months old strike action by the university lecturers, the right thing to do is to shut down the entire Nigerian system including the Governance of the nation.

The group noted that the NANS leadership should take a cue from the NANS of the old in which such action as seeking for funds from private individuals is strange, and that the right way is to make the country ungovernable for the federal government and to those who feel shutting out the Nigerian students is righty.

“How can NANs be calling on these corrupt individuals that were part of the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration, that used looted public funds to procure a three pages nomination form at N100Million. Instead, we should lawfully shut-down the country and make it known to them that the coming primaries of political parties will not hold unless these politicians return students to classes.”

“The end SARS protests have shown that the only language understood by the Buhari led administration and his cohorts is that of total shutdown of their corrupt systems. NANS should as a matter of urgency reach out to different groups and civil society groups to send the right signal.”

Poor Basic Education, Breach Of Children’s Rights – Adepts

Poor Basic Education, Breach Of Children’s Rights – Adepts

Inadequacy in basic learning is a core breach of the fundamental human rights of children, which must be addressed, experts have said.

This breach, according to the experts, is the reason Nigeria is currently witnessing a staggering education crisis, where learning outcomes have become the poorest globally.

The crisis, they say, has become so alarming that even children who have managed to enroll in basic schools are not learning.

A recent World Bank research indicates that Nigeria is going through learning poverty, where 70% of 10-year-olds who are in school cannot understand a simple sentence or perform basic numeracy tasks while 69% of primary school teachers are unqualified to be in the classroom.

Elhadji Diop, an education specialist at UNICEF, while addressing a Media Dialogue on Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN), said education, being a fundamental human right of every child, must be upheld.

‘‘Education is a fundamental human right and that right is well-articulated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, including the Nigerian Constitution,’’ he says.

To address the challenge of poor learning, Diop insists achieving basic learning outcomes is important while improving foundational skills at that level is also key.

Also explaining that Nigeria is not only grappling with 10.5 million out of school children, UNICEF Communications Specialist, Dr. Geofferry Njoku, warned that the country is now also faced with the challenge of those in school not learning adequately.

He advised that attention be paid to literacy and numeracy, which are the foundational basis of education.

‘‘It is about time we focused on learning for children through teacher training, changing the curriculum and changing the quality of education,” he said.

Njoku advised that the success of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), is tied to the implementation of the Child Rights Act.

Manar Ahmed, another expert, in a presentation expressed worry that an unprepared workforce, insufficient physical resources and low school readiness are the reasons behind the low learning outcomes in basic school.

She emphasized that Nigeria’s problem is not the dearth of policies but the proper implementation of the available policies, stressing that despite programs on improving basic education, much more is needed to be done, especially at the basic level.

“Goal four of the SDGs is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education that promotes lifelong learning and all children by age 10 must know how to read and solve numeracy.

“It is not that Nigeria lacks the right policy but Nigeria is facing a staggering crisis with learning outcomes being one of the lowest.

“So, 70% of the children in school are not achieving basic foundational skills,” she said.

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde Set To Hand Over GCI To Old Boys Association

We are setting a new standard for educational devt-govt
The Oyo State Government is set to hand over the Government College Ibadan to the Government College Ibadan Old Boys Association (GCIOBA) for management, operation, and development.
The state government made this disclosure following the signing of an agreement between the government and the Incorporated Trustees of the GCIOBA, noting that the handover followed the Old Boys Association’s request to manage, operate and develop the school in order to maintain and sustain its legacy.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, indicated that the Secretary to the State Government, Mrs. Olubamiwo Adeosun, and the Commissioner for Education, Barr. Abdulrahman Abdulraheem represented the state government, while the Incorporated Trustees of GCIOBA led by the President of the Association, Dr. Wale Babalakin represented the school.
Speaking on behalf of Governor Seyi Makinde at the agreement-signing ceremony, Mrs. Adeosun said that the state, through the agreement, was initiating a process that would ensure the state gets the best from the education sector.
She said that a study conducted by the Makinde government upon assumption of office in 2019 indicated that the state government needed over N40 billion to take the education sector to the barest minimum standard.
According to her, it was clear from the beginning that the state could not do it alone.
She said: “If you have been following Oyo State when this administration came on board, we had four cardinal points, and education is one of them. So, education is very key to us, and I think when the first assessment was done, what was needed to even bring our educational sector up to the basics was over N40 billion. So, we were very clear from the beginning that we would not do this alone.
“Also, when we looked at the various bodies that could assist us in making us realise our objectives, the Old Boys Association was one of them.”

She expressed the hope that GCIOBA would bring the school to a standard that other schools would follow, adding that the agreement was a pilot scheme that the state hoped would bring the best to its education sector.
While speaking at the event, the President of GCIOBA, Dr. Babalakin said that the Trustees were happy to pull through the ‘unusual agreement.’

He said: “I want to let you know that you would see a massive transformation of this institution and it will be what the governor wants it to be; the envy of schools in Nigeria.
“I will like to appreciate the team of the government led by the indomitable Secretary to the State Government, Mrs. Bamiwo Adeosun. She has been able to guide the process to this level. I also thank the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, who has been following and putting in the necessary clauses. We also thank the Commissioner for Education.”
A copy of the agreement indicated that the GCIOBA’s desire to maintain and sustain the preeminent status of the institution, founded in 1929, coincided with the Governor Makinde administration’s policy to designate some secondary schools in the state as schools for gifted students.
According to the agreement, GCIOBA will be granted “the right and authority during the term of this Agreement to manage, operate and develop GCI in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.”

A Board of Trustees is to be set for the school, which according to the agreement, will comprise nominees from the state government, GCIOBA and the parents association.
When completed, the handover will see GCIOBA being responsible for the provision of additional infrastructure and improvement of existing ones in the school, provision of security with the assistance of the state government, employment of competent staff, and payment of the same.
Other responsibilities of the Old Boys Association are the provision of modern teaching aids that will enhance the standard of education and the maintenance of the free education policy of the Makinde-led administration except in cases where boarding facilities are provided by the GCIOBA, among others.

The agreement equally maintained that GCIOBA will absorb existing teaching and non-teaching staff posted to GCI, who indicate to leave the service of the Oyo State government and that it will not discriminate against absorbed staff and those in the service of the state government.
The agreement, it was noted, shall commence on the date of the formal handover of school to GCIOBA after the execution of the Agreement and “shall subsist for a period of 25 (Twenty-Five) years.”
The agreement equally indicated that the GCIOBA is expected to, within two years of the execution of the agreement, provide evidence of new infrastructures either completed or ongoing; undertake continuous and regular maintenance of existing infrastructures and undertake the training and capacity building for the teaching staff, among others.

We Need N2bn To Conduct Next Exams – NECO Tells FG

The Chief Executive Officer, CEO, and Registrar of the National Examinations Council, NECO, Ibrahim Dantani, has revealed that the council requires over N2 billion to settle the allowances of its over 4,000 staff on examination duties.

Wushishi made the disclosure while fielding questions from newsmen at the end of the opening of a workshop on Quality Assurance in Educational Assessment with the theme, “Invigorating and Repositioning the National Examinations Council, NECO, through the Instrumentality of Quality Assurance for Effective Service Delivery in Minna Niger State.

He said soon, over 4,000 of its staff would be engaged on exams duties across the nation.

He hinged the increase in the examination bills to the federal government’s recent upward review of Duty Traveling Allowances, DTA, of lts staff from N16, 000 to N33,500.

Wushishi stated that NECO on its own does not have the money to implement such approval, while appealing to the Federal Government to come to its aid.

Speaking on moves by the Federal Government to stop the collection of 25 per cent from NECO examination fees, the Registrar described it as a welcome development.

He also explained that the workshop would equip participants with the required skills to compete favourably with their counterparts globally which as well will impact positively on the participants.

According to him, “We need to install an e-library, sustainable training for capacity building, making available 24 hours free internet, use of softwares and computer laboratories as well as updating the knowledge of the teachers on their subject areas.”

Wushishi further explained that his expectations at the end of the workshop include better handling of NECO exams, improveS knowledge capacity as well as improved efficiency and effectiveness of the staff.

ASUU STRIKE: ” We Give FG 48hrs Ultimatum To Finalize Agreements…” – NAUS

“We Give FG 48hrs To Finalize Agreements With ASUU…”-NAUS

A group, National Association of University Students, NAUS, has given the Federal Government, FG,48hours to finalize all agreements with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, in order to stop the ongoing strike action.

The group further warned that failure of the federal government to complete settlements with ASUU, it would proceed to carry-out nationwide protests which would destabilise economic activities, and all political activities in the country.

Speaking during a press briefing with journalists in Abuja, the National President of NAUS, Comrade Mujaheed Shuaibu stated that the federal government must ensure that it meets all demands made by ASUU in order to completely eject strike actions from the academic activities in Nigeria
Shuaibu asserted that the strike action has caused inconsistency in scholarship opportunities, research grants, and learning output which they claimed is soiling the image of the nation before the international community.

Shauibu stated: “It is very disheartening to note that the Academic Staff Union of University has gone on strike for half a decade since 1999. The consequences of this development are grave on the part of the students who are the victims of these incessant industrial actions embarked upon by ASUU as a result of labour disagreement with the Federal Government.

The resultant effect of these incessant strike is inconsistency in scholarship opportunities, research grants, & learning output. At the end of every strike action, ASUU members get their salary, government officials & politicians get paid, Cabinet ministers in charge of Education, Labor & Employment also get paid off their allowances after meetings with ASUU, but the students get nothing than the inability to get mobilized for National Youth Service Corps as a result of age limitation scope.

It is more worrisome that most of the industrial actions could have been avoided if the government has fulfilled the agreements freely entered with ASUU over the years.. Nigeria public universities is in a state of comatose and has taken a downward slope in recent years and there is an urgent need to fix the system.

Many Students no longer trust the system of our tertiary institutions as a result of the incessant strike menace and infrastructural neglect for the federal government.

“These developments account for the high level of migration of Nigerian Students to abroad in search of stable and qualitative education. It is obvious and a fact that many of our students that were trapped in war ravaged Ukraine as a result of the strike menace in our varsities and lack of adequate learning infrastructural development.
