#Covid19 : There is no basis for reopening Nigerian schools — ASUU President


I thought the exact same thing. It is becoming very clear that our level of caution was at its peak when Nigeria hadn’t recorded up to 1000 cases. Now that it is close to 30,000 the law makers are going ahead with putting every thing up and running, hoping people will safe themselves and not rely on the Government to look out for them.

I think this case is headed for it’s overwhelming state if schools should open. And not even start with the school reopening guidelines. The same guidelines that people don’t care about, from the market place to the work place. How then can it now be equally applied to schools when we know it will only work for the first one week of school. God help us.

The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof Abiodun Ogunyemi, has faulted the move to reopen schools amid the COVID-19 pandemic. On Monday, the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, had said President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the reopening of schools nationwide. But Prof Ogunyemi is not in support of the move, saying the Federal Government has not put in place safety measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in schools. According to him, every strata of government has to be carried along in the move to reopen the learning centres. “The ministry (Federal), state ministries, have responsibilities; state education boards have responsibilities, local education boards have responsibilities; the thing has to trickle down,” he said on Wednesday during Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily. “You don’t put something on nothing, and that is what we have been saying. “The basis for reopening schools is not there yet. The government must go back to the drawing board. They have to put what they have to put in place before they open our schools.” The ASUU leader claimed that “nobody is talking about tertiary institutions,” but admitted that “one way or the other, we will come to talk about it.” He also lamented that classes at all levels in public schools are congested and wondered how social distancing will be observed. “We are saying they need to go back to the drawing board,” he restated.

#Beyonce incredibly proud of her new film #BlackisKing

View this post on Instagram

I typically keep comments short and sweet, but I just watched the trailer with my family and I’m excited. 🎶please don’t get me hype🎶🤪 “Black Is King” is a labor of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose. The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. With this visual album, I wanted to present elements of Black history and African tradition, with a modern twist and a universal message, and what it truly means to find your self-identity and build a legacy. I spent a lot of time exploring and absorbing the lessons of past generations and the rich history of different African customs. While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge. I only hope that from watching, you leave feeling inspired to continue building a legacy that impacts the world in an immeasurable way. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people. This is a story of how the people left MOST BROKEN have EXTRAORDINARY gifts.❤️✊🏾 Thank you to Blitz, Emmanuel, Ibra, Jenn, Pierre, Dikayl, Kwasi and all the brilliant creatives. Thank you to all at Disney for giving this Black woman the opportunity to tell this story. This experience has been an affirmation of a grander purpose. My only goal is that you watch it with your family and that it gives you pride. Love y’all, B

Zambian Authority begins investigation on man after a women in his home made a video of him scolding his son who wasted a $21k school fees


Maybe it’s because I watch too much IDX channel on DSTV that is why my head is telling me that this women could be the architect of the family issues. She for whatever reason, maybe wanting something like a divorce, independence or freedom from this man and decided to get him to a point of physical reaction so she can make video of him and post to the world.

The way she positioned herself as the saviour of the family in a situation like this, is interesting. After all the watching, it is clear she didn’t contribute a dime to the $21k school fees, since she is not obligated to show disappointment and anger towards the first born of the house, she became a shield for him. This so suppose to be a family issue, but she invited the world into it.

How won’t Mr George be upset with his son after wasting such an amount of money for his fees? Of course he is a human and will be upset. Someone should come and try a Nigerian family with that scenario and see if the woman won’t be included in the scolding. Well she seems to have gotten what she wants from the situation, as the authorities have summoned the man for slapping his son. Such an aggreviating situation. See the videos and reaction below…

What EXACTLY is #Lagos doing to prevent the #spread of #Coronavirus


While many countries are going about it the very obvious way, fighting the entrance of the disease, protecting their points of entrances, blocking their boundaries, and treating those who have contacted it, some are just relying on the efficiency of these serious countries to prevent the spread.

We all are expected to have heard of the deadly coronavirus that has become a big problem for humans of the world. With over 17 thousand cases and over 300 deaths, which is Said to have brought into existence from the consumption of bat by these Our food exploring brothers in China.

In the name of all that is good and Satisfying, who eats a bat soup? This so not even a time of war and famine, just an ordinary human decided to voluntarily eat a bat soup. And videos of these soups I have seen so far, are those of dead bats that weren’t even sliced into an attractive size before consumption, but were cooked as a whole. As in, the bats are looking straight into the eyes of their consumer with wings spread apart.

Now we have this problem coming from that creepy act, all because someone decided to get curious and find out how a creature and unfriendly as a bat tastes.

While I have seen videos from scared and serious Countries spraying passengers who just landed into the country with a certain chemical mix to prevent the spread of the deadly virus, all I hear from Nigeria my Country is just the constant irrelevant TV, Radio and Newspaper articles about how they are protecting the Country. How exactly are you doing this please? Everything and time is not for clout chasing. what exactly are you doing in clear details?

Ordinary picture or even video of them actually doing something in real life, we can’t and haven’t seen. Ask these guys talking up and down about the chemicals that are being mixed to spray dead the virus in other Countries and they won’t know.

Now all we are relying on🤦🏾‍♀️ , is the scary fact that this virus will ahev mercy and won’t simply find its way into the country. Someone told me yesterday that her neighbour who just landed Nigeria from China, is in his house lounging.

How can you airport health guys tell he doesn’t have the virus yet, when he has not elapsed the quarantine period?. Imaging the Governor of Lagos State pleading with people to stay for quarantine when they arrive Lagos. Do you see what we are dealing with here? Imagine how many others are home from China in Lagos still chilling without any confirmation that they are safe? what makes you think that anyone will want to voluntarily stay for the quarantine when they can be stigmatised and maltreated and made to think they are dying while in there?

something this serious requires a serious readiness and not begging people to stay when you are not upping your game of restricting them and compulsorily protecting the rest of the country people? Dear God, help us in this Country named Nigeria. And to think that those in China are asking to be brought back home at a time like this? You have to understand that we don’t have what it takes to protect ourselves. We please with a cherry out Nigerians out there to let yourself get quarantined along with others. you don’t want to effect the whole country do you? Please do what is asked of you out there.

#LinkedIn User Claims Nigerian #footballer Ahmed Musa is set to spend N1Billion on #scholarship for 100 #students


According to a LinkedIn profile which goes by the user name Samuel Aboki, he is revealing that the gentle Northern footballer Ahmed Musa is set to spend N1Billion on scholarship for 100 students at skyline University , with an average of N2.5 million on each student.

He added that the football star built a N500million sport complex for the citizens of his state of origin in Kano state.

I have not heard of this, and even though the northerners love to be humble and low-key in their financial dealings, this is something involving such huge amounts and sweeping it under the rug is not nice at all. if he truly did this, then he sure needs to be shown some love. Wait, where is Skyline University? In the north I guess 🙄🙄.

The #Sussexroyal makes a post in honour of the #InternationalDayofEducation


Reposted from @sussexroyal Today, on International Day of Education, we highlight the importance of access to education for all. The Duchess of Sussex has focused on this both prior to becoming a member of the Royal Family and now as patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official).

Working closely with CAMA, both The Duke and Duchess recognise the benefit both personally and to society at large when a young girl has access to education. On their recent tour to Southern Africa, The Duke supported the initiatives of @Camfed on the ground in Malawi 🇲🇼.

Over the years, The Duchess has worked in developing communities, such as in Rwanda 🇷🇼 and India 🇮🇳 , to find the hindrances to girls’ ability to go to school and furthermore to stay in school. These can include lack of access to clean water, stigma surrounding MHM, cultural taboo, and many more reasons….

As President and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess thank all those who are working to give access to education for all.Image © World Vision / PA / @mynamahila / SussexRoyal – #regrann

#Gabunion sets aside her #WCW to honour the industry #blackwomen who have earned her respect


With her number of years in Hollywood, she has seen it all and knows where everyone will end up based on their persistence and attitude towards their trade and others. So when Gabrielle Union, Mrs Dwayne Wade, Mummy to Savage baby Kavia Wade, tells you that she is impressed by you, then you are doing something good.

For her WCW, she is shining the light on those who have not gotten enough light on them, but yet are doing so good that the light has no option than to find them and shine on them. For the part three wednesdays, here are the first three sets of people who have made the 47 year old woman proud.

from @gabunion This week’s #WCW goes out to a mother-daughter power duo — @zoeisabellakravitz and Lilakoi Moon. I wanted to highlight the bond between mothers and daughters as I try to make my way as a new mom with babygirl.

I’ve always admired the obvious love, respect and nurturing village Zoe’s parents created and how beautiful it has been to witness as a mom just trying to figure it all out. Talk about two strong and talented women.

Zoe is the daughter of beautiful Lilakoi and is truly making a name for herself. From being the lead of her band Lolawolf to landing meaningful roles on the big screen she has been a legend in the making for the past few years now.

Let me also point out she is a flat-out fashion goddess and got it from her mama 😉. Lilakoi has inspired me for years with her class, effortlessly cool style, and kindness. Leave it to this mother daughter duo to steal your heart…@kaaviajames look forward to these type of moments! Let us lift them up in the light of goodness and hold them there.

Reposted from @gabunion This week’s #WCW is the stunning and dynamic South Sudanese-Australian model, Adut Akech Bior. She spent her early years in a refugee camp in Kenya, and she attributes this life of violence and fear to what taught her the power of gratitude .

In school she was bullied for her skin tone and her gap, and now she has owned those aspects of herself and  made  it into a brand of self love!  She started her modeling career at 16 years old, and just three years later has graced the cover of countless magazines and has garnered awards and honors like: , 2019 BFA – Model of The Year, 2019 Industry vote – Model of The Year, 2019 Time – 100 NEXT List… just to name a few.

Beyond her beauty, she is set to work with the U.N. to help refugees at her former camp, and one day she wants to build a school, a hospital, or a modeling agency in South Sudan. Keep on shining. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there. – #regrann

The #Greatest Way to doubt #yourself is by comparing yourself to others — #TontiDike


from @tontolet – The greatest way to doubt ourselves is by comparison to others, if we’re constantly looking at what others are doing we’ll surely stray from our own paths and find ourselves living someone else’s life. ⠀

Our dreams were given to us so that we could bring them into reality rather than let them die in favour of doing what everyone else is doing because it’s easier to be accepted than it is to be original. ⠀

The comparison we entertain have been embedded in us from a young age but this isn’t an excuse that allows us to continue engaging in this dysfunctional behaviour – it’s a pattern that can be broken and it starts with forming a new habit. This new habit might consist of acknowledging when we’re comparing ourselves and saying “I’m doing it again” and reminding ourselves of the journey we’ve chosen to embark on. ⠀

It will take time but we can also surround ourselves with the people who will support us on our path to make these new habits easier to form. Who do you have around you that drains you and why are you still entertaining your relationship with them?

End of year #crime rate has officially overwhelmed the #Nigerianpolice


While we are happy to be doing things and being grateful for all that we are given despite not being up to whatever it is that we planned, and we are finally closing in on the end of 2019, then let us look at the pros and cons of the festivity. The horses are closed so importation is seized so that Nigerian made foods can be bought, promoted, consumed and improved upon. But then again a hand full of individuals are fighting this plans and setting markets all over the country ablaze.

The Nigerian rice that we were asked to patronise are now as unbelievably expensive. As expensive as the imported would have been if they’re were allowed into the country. This is how you know that economic sabotage is such a huge thing is this country. I mean who are we kidding? No one monitors the prices of goods and services, no one stops these misbehaviours and unnecessary price hikes. People are islands and they do whatever the heck they want with prices and services and we have no option than to patronise them nevertheless.

As we draw to the end of the year in Nigeria, so many people especially the youths are without any source of income, and those who do, have little or nothing to show for it because so many family members are relying on them and asking endlessly for assistance due to the rate of poverty the country people are dealing with.

The high number of people without jobs are confidently going into crime and they are doing it with so much lacknof fear of the police.

A friend of mine was robbed amid so many other people I know that have equally been robbed in a space of one month. She went to the police to officially report and get an assistance with tracking her phone but they were more interested in extorting her with things so unbelievably stupid as making her pay for police report, charging her double for affidavit and constantly telling her she is a big girl to have been using such an expensive missing phone. This friend of mine was constantly reaching the criminals through her missing line, but the police man started avoiding her phone calls.

There are so many Nigerians turning to all sorts of crimes to survive, or even make ends meet so desperately. They are attacking, killing, robbing and ruining the already stressed out workers in the society. People are robbed at every single time of the day and at every single place possible even at their homes. The police are overwhelmed and thereby avoiding victims. Don’t think you are not robbable dear readers, so while we can’t rely on the police of our country to protect us, then here are some things that we can do to help keep ourselves safe while we survive this season, governement and time.

  • Drop your ATM with plenty money at home and carry the one with only small for your day
  • Delete Bank transaction messages from your phone
  • Drop your expensive phone at home if you must go out at night
  • While in traffic at night, control your urge to go on social media so you don’t attract criminals with your phone light
  • Resist making money calls in public to avoid giving ideas to criminals
  • If you go to work in the early hours of the day, then avoid dark and scanty places and stand at the a well lit places
  • Be very vigilant at all times.
  • Limit the show of affluence in public
  • Try to go back home before night fall as many of these crimes at done in the dark
  • Becareful with entering private vehicles and letting strangers enter yours
  • Letting strangers into your home at night is a
  • While driving , always look into your rare view mirror to know when you are being followed.
  • Avoid the bank and have all transactions done fast
  • Do not have phone apps in your phone since you can do transactions with bank USSD code. This is because you will be forced to make transactions.
  • Don’t go arguing, challenging, threatening and fighting with an armed robber. Don’t be stupid.

#KimKardashianwest as a law student has fans reacting


Well, they are not applauding because of the look though cos that is not a student look if you ask me. They are clearly applauding the business woman, law student, a wife to someone like Kanye, and then the mother to four little kids. Kim is one of those women who doesn’t let what is said stop her form pushing it forward. From not being smart (they say), she went ahead to hit so much deals it made her a millionaire in 100s. Form not being with any talent, she has and is still counting the various businesses that have seen the light of day through her active and constantly functioning brain.

Being this relevant and pushing their family reality show for a decade and proudly counting, while many have caused out their family and tagged them some very demeaning things, yet they watch them and purchase their products and make them the wealthy family that they have come to be.

Kim might not be your in there girl, but there is no denying that this lady is a dreamer who has the rare genes of bring her dreams to reality. She is going after all that’s he had been told that she can’t do. She is the one and only kimkwest and she is not backing down, not with age or being busy or just being exhausted. Kim should be studied in the US and Armenian colleges. Look at her serious face as she heads for school in that photo.

School Girl Kim

Now a law student, it is only normal to once in a while hjev honour to whom honour is due.
