Why Candidates Can No Longer Choose Public Universities As Second Choice

Why Candidates Can No Longer Choose Public Universities As Second Choice 

The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed why it restricted candidates from choosing two public universities during the 2017 online registration.

POST UME 2016 Full List Of Schools That Have Released Forms

Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, told Premium Times on Saturday that the choice of public universities was restricted to one but candidates can choose as many colleges of education and polytechnics as they want.

The new measure by the board means that candidates may select a public university and a private university, but not two public universities.

Mr. Benjamin said that the Board took the restrictions because candidates hardly get admissions into their second and third choice universities.

He said: “Yes we restricted the choice to one but candidates can choose as many colleges or polytechnics,”

“We discovered it was of no use choosing a university as second choice when in actual sense they can’t even accommodate their first choices,”

Mansur Ismailia Bags First Class In UNILAG

UNILORIN Medical School Drop Out , Mansur Ismailia Bags First Class In UNILAG

 Mansur Ismailia is one of the best graduating students of the University of Lagos,with a CGPA of 4.59. Two weeks to his final examination, Mansur dropped out of medical school after 10 years at the University of Ilorin.UNILORIN Medical School Drop Out , Mansur Ismailia Bags First Class In UNILAG

He was in the University of Ilorin, where he studied Medicine and Surgery for a total number of 10 years, precisely between 2001 and 2011.

According to Mansur, who spoke with PUNCH in an interview said, ”UNILORIN was hellish for me. I never wanted to become a medical doctor in the first place. While I was at the institution, the course was made unbearable, and I think unnecessarily difficult then. Tens of us were failing and repeating serially, and several colleagues were withdrawn in shocking circumstances; some at 500 level and even final year! But I was different, in that, despite the fact that I repeated 200, 300, 500 and 600 levels and spent a total 10 years instead of six years at the UNILORIN Medical School, I really never wanted to become a doctor.

Deep down in me, I really was never a doctor. My heart was always somewhere else; in journalism or law. I chose journalism after I voluntarily withdrew from medical school in my 10th year, that was two weeks to my second attempt at the final MBBS exams. The rest is history.”

Asked on why he dropped out of medical school, he said: ”I was originally pressured into studying Medicine by my father. But he made an innocuous, and I must say, a well-intentioned error. Like many Nigerian parents, he wanted me to be in science class in secondary school and proceed to study the “best course in the world”.

For several other personal, and seemingly justified reasons, he pushed me into medical school and kept me there, paying lots of money year after year to sustain me, for 10 years. Unfortunately, I was quite brilliant in secondary school and I didn’t fail badly enough to send warning signals then. Trouble only started in the second year of MBBS.

Unfortunately again, I had zero interest in medicine, and very strong feelings for the news, the media, reading and public speaking. Then and now, I remain a voracious consumer of the news, and the common complaint of my friends has always been that I talk too much.

Today, I talk for money (laughs). I dropped out of medicine because I could not take it no more. It was killing me. It destroyed my cognitive acumen, and turned me into a sad, depressed man; a perpetual failure. Essentially, I spent the 10 years studying medicine and discovering myself. The experience subconsciously prepared me for a new life of success in Mass Communication.

JAMB Approves 180 as the 2016 National cut-off mark

JAMB Approves 180 as the 2016 National cut-off mark

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has approved the reduction of the cut-off mark for admission into tertiary institutions from 180."JAMB Approves 180 as the 2016 National cut-off mark"

JAMB’s Registrar and Chief Executive, Prof. Ishaq Oleyede, made this know during the 2nd Technical Committee Meeting for 2016 Admissions to Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria, which was held at the Alvan Ikoku College of Education in Owerri.

He had initially called for a national debate on the propriety of cut off marks .

Oloyede explained that the decision became necessary, due to the inability of some schools to implement the cut-off mark.

He said: “it was in a meeting of the Board of higher institutions and other Stakeholders that a decision of 180 as the 2016 National cut-off mark was reached.

“However, many Institutions, though part of the decision, have expressed concern on their inability to effect this cut-off mark as they are finding it difficult to fill a reasonable percentage of their quota if the rule is strictly applied as we insist.

“I think this cry needs attention, otherwise, some of these institutions whether public or privately-owned may soon begin to wobble or even close shops. This will be counter-productive and even defeat the Government Policy of expansion of access to higher education and manpower development.”

He, however, explained that the new flexible cut-off, will only apply to institutions that have exhausted the list of candidates that scored 180.

Oloyede warned that no institution, whether Federal or State, will be allowed to continue with admission of students after the November 30 deadline.

Oguntade Ayooluwa and Juliet Ekoko Winners 2016 Cowbellpedia Mathematics Competition

Oguntade Ayooluwa and Juliet Ekoko Winners 2016 Cowbellpedia Mathematics Competition

Both “Oguntade Ayooluwa and Juliet Ekoko Won 1 Million Naira Each at the 2016 Cowbellpedia Mathematics Finals Competition” , That’s Great !!! and they were both students of Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State"Oguntade Ayooluwa and Juliet Ekoko Won 1 Million Naira Each at the 2016 Cowbellpedia Mathematics Finals Competition"

It was a mixture of excitement and celebration as the 2016 Cowbellpedia Mathematics Competition came to a glorious end last weekend with Juliet Ekoko and Ayoola Oguntade, both of The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State winning the junior and senior categories; respectively.

The winners got N1 million each and an all-expense paid education excursion outside the country.

In a thrilling final encounter in the junior category, Ekoko subdued Oreofe Daniels of The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State; Oluwafunmbi Fakorede of Bibo Oluwa Academy, Ilesa, Osun State; Dennis Balogun of Greater Tomorrow International College, Arigidi-Akoko, Ondo State; Oluwatunmise Idowu of Scholars Universal Academy, Ota, Ogun State and Glory Okoli of The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State.

The story of Ekoko has remained a definition of luck, because she survived elimination three times in the road to the final. The 12-year old daughter of a mathematician was described by her mother, Funmi Ekoko, as very diligent.

Her father, Eyimofe Ekoko, was very elated as he thanked God and Promasidor for the honour and opportunity given to the family.

The winner, who aspires to be a medical doctor, also expressed gratitude to God and dedicated her victory to God, her teacher, her parents and her friends for their encouragement.

“I am very happy today. I am very grateful to God who has given me the grace and power to become a star today. Indeed, the scripture: we are what we are by the grace of God, has come to fulfillment in my life today,” she told journalists outside the studio.

In the senior category, Ayooluwa Oguntade, also of The Ambassadors College, won the competition and the ultimate prize.

Oguntade ‘flew over’ Adegoke Aromolaran of Bibo Oluwa Academy, Ilesa, Osun State and AdemolaFatoke of Ota Total Academy, Ota, Ogun State, Hasanah Adeyanju of Ota Total Academy, Ota, Ogun State; Taiwo Adeyemi and Blessing Udoh both of The Ambassador College, Ota, Ogun State.

Oguntade, who has been a class captain, a class representative and now the Head Boy of his school, also ascribed his success to God and his teachers. He aspires to study Engineering in the University and run his own company.

“The top CEOs I read about studied engineering and run their companies. I also want to have an engineering degree and run my own company,” he said

The winner, who loves ‘ofada rice and beef stew’ also intends to invent a flying car to ease the gridlock, especially on Nigerian roads.

His father, Bodunrin Oguntade expressed great appreciation to God and the organisers of the competition for the initiative which he believes will shape the future of Nigerian youth.

While the winners celebrated their successes, the disappointment on the face of some of the losers was visible. Oluwatunmise Idowu, a finalist in the junior category, who crashed out after the first round of the final, betrayed her emotions and wept like a baby.

Efforts by her teacher to console her did very little for Idowu who blamed her ouster on tension and burden of expectation.

She had, earlier in the preliminary rounds set a new competition record by answering 17 questions in 60 seconds.

In his welcome address, the Managing Director of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Olivier Thiry restated the commitment of the company to education which he said remains an important investment for the future of the children, especially the girl-child, because it allows them greater power to make informed choices.

He saluted the finalists for their excellent performance and assured that Promasidor will continue to support the academic development of Nigerian children.

The Registrar of the National Examination Council, NECO, Professor Charles Uwakwe in his remark, commended Promasidor for the Cowbellpedia initiative which he maintained will stimulate the interest of students in mathematics.

He pledged the NECO’s continuous support for the project in appreciation of what he described as Promasidor’s great Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) to Nigerian society.

The Head of Marketing, Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Festus Tettey commended NECO for its partnership on the project and noted that the company is willing to involve more stakeholders that can add value to education.

He extolled the level and quality of the competition this year and averred that the company will come up with more innovative ideas to make the competition better next year.

“We believe in the total nourishment of the body, brain and soul. Our core driving force has been giving back to society and we are happy to work with NECO, because it has improved the quality of the competition,” he said.

NUC Scraps Pre-degrees And Diplomas In Universities – Guardian Nigeria

NUC Scraps Pre-degrees And Diplomas In Universities –  Guardian Nigeria : Commission moves to review curricula

Pre-degree and diploma programmes in Nigerian universities have been scrapped. The National Universities Commission (NUC), which took the action, instructed them to leave the running of such programmes for polytechnics and concentrate effort on producing human capital in the core undergraduate, part-time and post-graduate courses.NUC Scraps Pre-degrees And Diplomas In Universities -  Guardian Nigeria

Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, gave this order at meetings held between October 10 and 12 with vice chancellors of the 143 universities in the country, according to a statement by the NUC yesterday.

He also directed that the research directorate of NUC be strengthened to work with those of universities. This is to co-ordinate research activities in universities and ensure relevance of their outputs. He said the NUC, would engage a mix of old, experienced and young vibrant academics to come up with curricula that would not only be dynamic and responsive to national needs, but also conform to global trends.

The statement continued: “A comprehensive review of the entire university curricula (the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS)) and ranking of Nigerian universities have also been scheduled for 2017, while two of the cardinal activities of the commission, accreditation of programmes and resource verification, will now take place only twice and thrice a year, respectively: May and November for accreditation as well as March, July and December for resource verification.”
NUC also warned that any university that failed to present its programmes for accreditation promptly without satisfactory reasons, given well in advance, would be denied same and the relevant agencies (JAMB and NYSC) duly notified.

“The accreditation of part-time programmes would ensure that they are of the same quality as the full-time programmes, thereby restoring public confidence in them,” it said.

Rasheed urged universities to identify their areas of strength to mount joint Ph.D. programmes in view of increasing cost of training overseas.

He enjoined the vice chancellors to be creative and innovative enough to come up with new courses and programmes that would address emerging societal challenges.

He expressed NUC’s readiness to work with them to develop the BMAS for such new programmes.

WAEC 2016 – Release Results of 13 States – News Update

WAEC 2016 Release Results of 13 States News Update : Why We Won’t Release Results of 13 States , The West African Examinations Council has explained why it will continue to hold on to the 2016 West African Senior School Certificate Examination results of candidates in 13 states.waec-2016-release-results-13-states-news-update

The examination body said the backlog of WASSCE fees owed by the affected state governments was the reason for its action.

The Public Relations Officer of the council, Mr. Demianus Ojijeogu, who declined to name the debtor states, said that the total sum of money owed WAEC amounts to more than N2bn, with one state owing N500m.

According to him, eight of the debtor states were from the north, while three and two states were from the South-South and South-West geo- political zones of the country, respectively.

He alleged that some states owed the council since 2014.

Speaking further, Ojijeogu noted that an agreement was reached early this year for the debtor states to pay 40 per cent of the total cost of the 2016 examination as a requirement for their pupils to sit for the examination.

“They reneged on the agreement we had during registration. We agreed that they should pay 40 per cent of the registration cost and pay the rest later.

“We used the payment to offset the backlog because some of them have owed us since 2014.”

Main Reasons Nigerian Students Drop Out Of School

Main Reasons Nigerian Students Drop Out Of School : School Drop Out. It is not a new topic. It has been around the academic environment for quite some time. It is a situation where a student who because of one reason or the other decide to halt his studies. Dropping out, really can count as as substantial loss in the life of a student, and no, should school drop out should not be encouraged. But, should all school drop outs be seen as irresponsible? Maybe not. Going to school isn’t easy. The exit of some people out of high school or college owe to quite understandable reasons that are tied to real-life situations and demands. Here is a look at some of these reasons.main-reasons-nigerian-students-drop-school

1. Unexpected Academic Demand

Let’s face it: Not every student is prepared for the academic environment. Especailly for those who got into the college/university immediately after high school. Moving into the thick of their time table and lectures, they tend to feel burdened with the amount of responsibility that is attached to it. Some of them never anticipated and prepare for it. They, therefore, become burnt-out and discouraged; so they quit, whether or not their grades were lacking.

2. Real-Life Situations and Outside Demands

Unfortunately, as life may dictate, unexpected life situations can occur that are of such a serious nature, the student is forced to come home. Illness or illness of a family member, financial limitations can all contribute to why a student may be forced to quit his schooling for the time being.

3. Fragmented Families And Broken Relationships

Just because you go to school with your bags filled with goodies, and all boxed up does not mean it’s the same situation for everyone else. Your family is happy. Some families are not having a good time. As we are all products of our families and relationships, some people don’t have love in their relationships. They are overwhelmed with hurtful memories that make them lose concentration and take them away from their academics. It is one of the reasons they pack their things out of school.

4. Nostalgia or Homesickness

The comforts of home always seem to be desirable when a lonely and discouraged student is away at high school or college. Whether it is an abandoned relationship back at home or the comfort of a childhood bedroom or even the environment, some students can become so overwhelmed with grief, they cannot continue in their studies and concede.

5. Job Force: Short Term vs. Long Term

A lot of people who at some point may have ‘hustled’ their way through to school or worked for a certain period of time may come to the conclusion that making money now is somehow better than investing their time in an education for possibly more money in the future, and they give up their academic career to focus on their job.

6. Lack of Guidance

At every stage in our life, we need guidance. Need to say that we thrive on structure and someone’s instruction or care. At school, especially the first year, student may not have the proper guidance and individual attention from a counselor or mentor. Not knowing where to go, how to deal with problems can lead to academic failure and school drop out.

7. Talent:

This seems to be one of the rare reasons students drop out of school. And it is very common around us. We have so many stories of celebrities who at a young age, dropped out of school to pursue their talent. Some singing, some acting, photography, and all sort. Most of these people, at a later age return to school to further their studies.

8. Becoming a Parent:

This is also one of the reasons student drops out of school, especially for the unmarried female. Parentage is demanding and dutiful. If not without putting proper plans in place it could send one packing out of school before time.

–—
Hello,

Education is key. The reasons mentioned above can be prevented. And you can still excel in your studies. Be mature. Be Realistic. Persevere. Be responsible. Grow up. Invest well in your future. Education, come what may, will always be relevant. Whatever you learn today is yours and will be with you forever.

WITS – University of the Witwatersrand To Resume Tuesday, 4 October 2016

WITS – University of the Witwatersrand To Resume Tuesday, 4 October 2016 :

STATEMENT: Wits staff to return on Monday, academic programme to resume on Tuesday: wits-university-witwatersrand-resume-tuesday-4-october-2016

Phased opening of the University follows several engagements with a range of stakeholders, including students.

Dear Colleagues/Students

The Senior Executive Team of the University of the Witwatersrand announced today that Wits will reopen this week as follows:

All staff will return to work tomorrow, Monday 3 October 2016.
The academic programme will resume on Tuesday, 4 October 2016.
The phased opening follows several engagements with a range of stakeholders, including students, where we ceded to requests for a phased opening this week.

Safety and Security

The presence of private security and police on campus is not ideal and we understand that students and academics are not comfortable with academic activities occurring in an environment with a visible security presence.

However, we are left with no choice at this stage but to bring additional security onto campus. We will request the police to remain on the perimeter of the campus this week, unless there is a need to bring them onto campus, or there is risk to life or property.

We commit to gradually reducing the security presence provided that:

– University activities continue without disruption,
– there is no violence, intimidation or threat to students and staff,
– there is no destruction of property, and
– anyone who breaks University rules or violates the Constitutional rights of others are immediately held accountable.

We are willing to consider withdrawing private security and the police if the protesting students undertake not to impinge on the rights of those who wish to learn and work.

There is much misinformation on social media and we encourage students and staff to obtain their information from official University channels – the Wits website, staff and student emails and Wits’ social media channels – @Wits_News, @WitsUniversity and the University’s Facebook page.

We urge staff and students to work with us as we reopen this week. Together, we can still save the 2016 academic year, while continuing the struggle for free education for the poor and the so-called missing middle.

Thank you
SENIOR EXECUTIVE TEAM

Jephtaph Abolarin – I Cheated To Pass WAEC (Letter To UNILORIN)

jephtaph-abolarin-i-cheated-to-pass-waec-letter-to-unilorinJephtaph Abolarin I Cheated To Pass WAEC Letter To UNILORIN : Authorities of the University of Ilorin, Kwara State on Sunday said that they had accepted the voluntary withdrawal of a student, Jephtaph Abolarin, from the institution.

Abolarin, a 300-Level Sociology student, had written to the university confessing to cheating during his West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

Abolarin, who claimed he had become a ‘born again’ Christian, said continuing his university education, using an unmerited certificate was unjust and immoral.

He wrote the letter to the institution’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academics, Prof. Sidiqat Ijaiya, on August 5, 2016.

According to him, he wanted to withdraw from the school because he got his WASSCE through examination malpractice.

Reacting to the letter on Sunday, the university Deputy Director, Corporate Affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun, confirmed the withdrawal of the student.

Akogun, who noted that the Senate of the university had accepted the withdrawal letter, added that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali, commended Abolarin for his repentance and sincerity.

The VC, Akogun added, wished Abolarin well in his future endeavour.

Part of Abolarin’s letter to the DVC read, “Just as a house that was built on a faulty foundation will surely collapse, it is also certain that a career that is built on a faulty foundation will definitely collapse. All through my secondary school days, I was just a church ‘goer’, without genuine salvation and the fear of God. As a result, I got my WASSCE result through examination malpractice.

“By the grace of God, now, I have encountered the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which called for repentance and restitution.

“Sir, with deep conviction, I have realised that there is no point building my academic career on a faulty foundation; since the WASSCE result I got through malpractice is the basis in which my admission into this university was anchored.

“Therefore, I have decided to withdraw from the university and start all over again.”

OAU shuts down mosques inside hostel over alleged prostitution

OAU shuts down mosques inside hostel over alleged prostitution

Obafemi Awolowo University‘s management has stated that it is ready to shut down mosques across the hostels in the institution.

According to a statement signed by the Dean of the Divisional Students Affairs DSA, Dr. G. O Akinola, it was shut down because of the allegations levied on the MSSN splinter group.

OAU shuts down mosques inside hostel over alleged prostitution

Read the statement below:

“The Division of Students Affairs (DSA) acting upon the Statutes and Regulations of Obafemi Awolowo University hereby declares closed until further notice, the two purported mosques in Awolowo and Fajuyi Halls for the reasons of peace, free movement of students and staff within the Halls and the overriding need for the security of all persons, assets and installation in the Halls.

The reasons for this closure are as set out below:

1. On Friday 12th August, 2016 when the current executive members of the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ife Branch were to be inaugurated at the Central Mosque, the Division of Students Affairs (DSA) was invited and was duly represented by the Vice Dean of the Division. There were issues at the inauguration when we were told of another group of Muslim students who wanted to impose themselves and their doctrines which are not consistent with the Constitution of the MSSN members. At that point the Vice-Dean was asked to interact with this group with a view to finding out what their arguments and positions were;

2. After the Vice-Dean’s interaction with the group (which is yet to give a name to itself, although they insisted that they should be called MSSN too), we decided to call members of the group to a meeting at the DSA.

They came on Tuesday, 23rd August 2016 at 6.15pm. After several attempts at making them attend the parley failed, we eventually held a meeting with them on this 23rd August. We stressed at the meeting the point that the DSA is only aware of the existence of only one MSSN as a registered Muslim students’ group on the campus of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

We impressed it on the group that even the DSA is also aware that the National body of the MSSN recognises only one MSSN group here on campus. We therefore advised the group to, if they have any issue of disagreement between them and the mainstream MSSN, please for sake of peace on campus and interest of their members take steps to sort them out with the Executive of the MSSN on campus.

3. The meeting deliberated extensively on how to bring this settlement about and at the end of it, it was agreed that a period of one (1) week be given to permit the group interact with the mainstream MSSN and settle their disagreement amicably failing which the two ‘mosques’ at Fajuyi and Awolowo Halls would be closed down for peace to reign.

Note that this splinter group of the MSSN had begun to use the two ‘mosques’ in these Halls as a base for their anti-mainstream MSSN rhetorics and doctrinal disagreement on campus, including recruitment of students for their separate teachings. Note also, that these two ‘mosques’, converted as such were originally Cafeteria buildings meant for the respective halls under the University’s master plan.

We also agreed at the meeting that if the DSA found that they were able to make progress on the reconciliation, even if they have not completely reached an agreement on doctrinal or worship issues, the suggestive closure of the ‘mosque’ would be suspended to permit for more room for rapport and deeper reconciliation. We agreed that we were going to meet again on the very day that the one-week ultimatum to reconcile expired, that is Tuesday 30th August, 2016. Meanwhile, desirous of a way to convince the DSA that the splinter group meant well, they invited the DSA to visit the two ‘mosques’ in Fajuyi and Awolowo Halls to see that there was nothing sinister in the activities of the splinter group and that if anything at all, they have been peaceful and law-abiding.
4. However, on Thursday 25th August, a meeting was held with the University recognized MSSN Executive members. This same MSSN Executive is also recognised by the OAU Muslim Community and by the National body of MSSN in Nigeria. That meeting was called to hear the complaints of the splinter MSSN members and their grievances. The recognized MSSN was informed of the University’s plan to close the ‘mosques’ in Fajuyi and Awolowo Halls if the splinter group of the MSSN failed to make peace with the mainstream MSSN and reconcile accordingly;
5. On Friday 26th August, the MSSN National body paid a courtesy visit to the DSA to discuss the furore over the recognized MSSN on campus. The visitation team led by the President of the National MSSN, Muhammad Jameel Muhammad came in company of the campus mainstream MSSN and some of his officials. The thrust of their visit was to make a passionate appeal to the DSA on their fear for the possibility of “emergence on the OAU campus of an extremist group of Muslim students in a fashion similar to the current Boko Haram insurgency besetting Nigeria”. They expressed some fears and strongly felt that the splinter MSSN group in OAU and what they referred to as “their strange doctrinal principles and procedures” could lead to the materialization of such fears. The visitation team pleaded with the University through the DSA to do all that was lawful and needful to see that such fears were allayed. The visitation team also reiterated their support for the recognized MSSN mainstream organization and its president. In addition, the team gave a copy of the MSSN Constitution and 5 copies of the articles of faith of the MSSN titled “MSSN at a Glance” to the DSA;
6. On the night of 27th August, 2016 reports came to the Acting Dean, DSA, that the splinter MSSN group were planning to hold a religious programme in Awolowo Hall Cafeteria the following day (i.e. 28th August, 2016), for which they had not sought or obtained permission. The Acting Dean reported to the University Chief Security Officer who immediately sent a group of his men to see how things would go with a view to apprehending any illegality or untoward behaviours and report forthwith. Report came that the religious programme held and that the leaders of the splinter MSSN presided at that programme. The point here is that the group failed to seek or secure approval for this religious activity in the Cafeteria.
7. However, on the night preceding the expiration of the ultimatum given to the Splinter MSSN group, to make peace with the mainstream MSSN and reconcile accordingly, a text message was sent to the Vice Dean, DSA, from the Splinter MSSN group that they had contacted someone who would help broker the reconciliation talks and that the person said he would see the Chief Imam of the Central mosque later. The DSA quickly apprehended this as delay tactics as the text could have been sent earlier. Otherwise, why the night preceding the expiration of the ultimatum to reconcile? In any case, on the agreed date when the ultimatum expired (Tuesday 30th August, 2016), the DSA expected them to come for a meeting at the DSA’s office, but to our chagrin they refused to show up.
8. Meanwhile, acting upon the invitation earlier extended to the DSA by this splinter MSSN group, the Acting Dean and Vice Dean at about 10.45am on 31st August, 2016, visited the Fajuyi and Awolowo Halls with a view to seeing for themselves samples of the activities of the splinter MSSN group. We told them of many irregular and outright illegal things we have heard them do at the ‘mosques’. We made them realise that they had been holding unauthorized religious programmes in these ‘mosques’ and several other places on campus without approval from the DSA. They, however, argued that they had not been violent but law abiding and that they had never done anything illegal or irregular in any of their religious meetings.
9. But on this our visit to Awolowo ‘mosque’, we discovered a door leading to one of the rooms in the ‘mosque’ was securely locked from inside and the occupants refused to open. We threatened to force the door open if they refused any further, and after much persuasion, the door was opened and we discovered to our utter amazement that a group of girls numbering about a dozen were locked inside the room either fully or partially veiled. Our amazement was that the room in which they were locked or locked themselves was in a male hall, we wondered to no end why purported female students would be locked up in a male hall during lecture hours, no matter the excuse. Before we could interrogate them, some escaped through the backdoor of the room but we were able to apprehend three of them from whom we collected their identity cards.
10. At the Fajuyi Hall, we also discovered to utter shock that a group of girls who purported themselves to be students were locked in a room in the ‘mosque’. We interrogated them and they claimed that they were kept there by their leaders who happen to be the leaders of MSSN splinter group. They, in addition claimed that they were praying in the room. Our dilemma was why a group of female students would claim to be praying during lecture hours in an exclusive male hall at around 11am! There was five girls in this room and we collected the identity cards from four of them. The fifth one who was fully veiled said she had not her identity card on her. However, a male student who vouched for this fully veiled girl volunteered to stand in for her until she produced her identity card. We collected this male student’s identity card.
11. Having observed the seeming obstinacy of the splinter MSSN group to interact with the DSA and to fulfill the requirements of the agreement reached on 23rd August, we again were forced to send a follow-up invitation to them stating that they should come to the DSA for a meeting on Wednesday, 31st August for a serious interaction at the DSA’s office. But to our utter dismay they sent a text message to the DSA that all of them in the group would be having Continuous Assessment tests from 10am to 5pm on 31st August, 2016. We replied that text message that no test of any kind could possibly last from 10am to 5pm in this University and that in their own interest they needed to show up for the meeting on or before 2.00pm on 31st August to discuss the issue of reconciliation as agreed in our last meeting with them.
12. The splinter MSSN group eventually came in the afternoon of 31st August at about 1.15pm. We intimated them with our findings and told them they had to put a stop to their practice of harbouring girls in rooms within the ‘mosques’. Their leaders insisted that they could not abide by that demand and that they reserved the right to keep any of their female members in the rooms in the ‘mosque’! We explained to them that what they were doing was contrary to the laws of the University and the regulations guiding religious worship and students’ conduct. But they held their ground that since the ‘mosque’ was a place of worship they could not abide by the rules and the need to desist from keeping female students within its rooms at any time. The meeting ended in a stalemate.
13. We thereafter pleaded with the Chief Imam of the University to take full charge of the ‘mosques’ and prevent forthwith any breach of the University’s rules within its walls. He declined flatly and said he would rather not be held responsible for what ever happened in those ‘mosques’ as he had since dissociated himself from the practices and doctrines of the splinter MSSN who controlled it.
14. It should be noted that the Federal Government, of Nigeria of which Obafemi Awolowo University is an integral part, has not legalized prostitution in Universities. It is pertinent to note also that no female should be camped in a male facility under the guise of religion, as this is tantamount to running a brothel which will breed prostitution; and this is illegal. It is only fit, proper and responsible that any grossly abused university facility be closed down.
15. Consequently, acting within its powers to prevent any breakdown of law and order and to ensure freedom of movement of persons within the respective halls of residence, especially at this time of dire security concern in the country, the DSA has therefore acted this 2nd day of September, 2016 to seal off and close down henceforth, the two ‘mosques’ in Awolowo and Fajuyi Halls until such a time that orderliness and the rule of the University would be respected within its walls.

Ugorji Victor Ikechukwu , SHOT LAST NIGHT

 ugorji-victor-ikechukwu-niger-delta-university-killed-this-morningUgorji Victor Ikechukwu Niger Delta University Student SHOT LAST NIGHT : A 300L student of Niger Delta University by name Ugorji Victor Ikechukwu of the department of Teacher Education, faculty of Education was mob at his residence in Amassoma, Bayelsa State at about 12:53am this morning.

He returned to school on Sunday the 28 day of August 2016 due to the recent call-off of the industrial strike action of the Academic Staff Union of University NDU Chapter that has lasted for 4 months now. He returned to clean his house and prepare for exam.

According to him, he was already sleeping when he heard a huge knock on the door calling his name. When he went outside his door to check who it was, he was shot. Luckily, it was his left arm.

He reported, “my gate was locked and when I step outside my door, the strange persons (they were two)  asked me to open the door which I refused knowing that I don’t know them. But they persist and said **so you think say you fit offend people and go free** so I wanted to run inside immediately to grab my phone when they shot at me. He passed his hands through the pigeon hole and shot me. Luckily, it hit my left arm and I cried out for help. My neighbors came out meeting me in the pool of my blood and rushed me here”.

His parents came this morning and took him to Port Harcourt as the police are investigating the matter.

Teacher, Lawal Quadri Olamilekan Writes An Open Letter To WAEC Over Results

teacher-lawal-quadri-olamilekan-writes-an-open-letter-to-waec-over-resultsThat’s a touching write up by aTeacher, Lawal Quadri Olamilekan as she Writes An Open Letter To WAEC Over Bad state of some Results , Read below.

DEAR WAEC
It saddens my heart to write on this note. The issue on ground is making me want to ask myself if examination is the true test of students ability… Of course not, how can the whole of a Centre fail one subject… All students in a particular Centre failed just one subject without explanation from the examination board.

This surely leaves me with the conclusion that WAEC is an under utilized examination board and as such not capable of conducting exam in the country,. Little wonder why waec result is unacceptable outside West Africa. Few years from now.. I’m so sure that students will get an eye opener and they will loose confidence in WAEC then opt for #NECO. Why will you jeopardize students future with your negligence and incompetence? Waec has been politicized and as such we no longer rest our confidence in WAEC.
