Shocking truth: Some graduates can’t recite English alphabet – NYSC

punchnewspapers-1570299725598

If ever there is a time for you cotpers to redeem yourself, then it is now. They have said that you people can not read and write. And while it is not really EVERYONE, it is a hand full of graduates. So many of them can’t really do some  things that are expected of a graduate. The National Youth Service Corps has concluded whole revealing, that it will now hand over unqualified graduates to the police for prosecution, and this can only be dictated by the simplest tasks. And that will specifically be about asking them to recite the English Alphabet. Lol😅😅 They have added that some of the graduates cannot recite the English alphabet and do not know a bank statement.

 

The NYSC Director-General, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, stated this on Thursday in Abuja at a press conference, noting that according to the NYSC Act, such fake graduates are liable to two years in jail.

Ibrahim also noted that 4,644,804 Nigerians had participated in the scheme since inception in 1973, saying the scheme had been able to achieve national integration. .

After all said and done, Nigerians simply want you to increase the allowance these corpers are given monthly.

#backtoschool : School girl Junie’s one sided hip pose bothers mama #teyanataylor

-1569264887166

Seems Junie is not one to be ordinary in class. She is showing so much signs of a class hottie with that one sided hip pose no one knows where she learnt it from. It could be that she wanted a different outcome than what we all can see, but I live her too much to judge that cuteness she is displaying, even though Mama Teyana wants her to aim for perfection and give the glam pose to the world. But wait a minute guys, How adorable is she with that pose? 😂

Special Nigerians : #HowardUniversity graduates 97 Doctors out of which 46 are Nigerians 🎓 — Georgina Onuoha

IMG_20190908_164906_282

Reposted from @georginaonuoha  * Howard University not Harvard* On June 19 2019. And the star amongst them is Olumide Olulade who graduated top of his class.
Regardless of all the horrifying headlines and killings of Nigerians in SA and other places. I hope we as a people don’t forget who we are.
Have you ever wondered why the opportunities back home to excel are so limited except you know someone or come from the aristocratic families?
It is basically the lack of investment in our society by the ruling elites. Poor governance and the cancer known as corruption. Yet our people excel in foreign lands and give their best in every sector they find themselves. I hope we begin to hold our leaders accountable.
It is not our duty to fear or worship politicians, folks they work for us. The wealth meant for all of us is what they are embezzling and enriching themselves.
There is know moral justification that a politician earns more than a lecturer, Doctor etc in any given society while the federal minimum wage for federal workers is 35/37 thousand naira. That is practically a 100 USA dollars for a month.
How Nigerians get by each day and survive, beats my imagination.
I have tremendous respect for my fellow Nigerians and I pray that someday, we will come to realize that the status-quo is no longer sustainable.
I salute these amazing students and may fortune smile on them all. Nigerian politicians and the world can never dim our light 💡. Still we Rise 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬 – #regrann

We send out a little prayer and love for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg #Washingtonpost

washingtonpost-1567285797889

Reposted from @washingtonpost – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Saturday that her work on the Supreme Court has “kept me going” through four bouts of cancer and that she is “on my way to being very well.”⁠

It was the second treatment for cancer in nine months for the court’s oldest member and leader of its liberal wing. Ginsburg had a lobe of her left lung removed in December, and in past decades was treated for colon and pancreatic cancer. She broke ribs in a fall last November.⁠

But before a worshipful crowd of what organizers said was more than 4,000 at the National Book Festival, she declared: “This audience can see that I am alive.”⁠

Female Youth Corper Rejects Simplicity and Comfort to stand out in heels

instablog9ja-1567285155906

I don’t know how much women love to wear heels in Nigeria and sincerely say that the act is what they love and would rather go through it all day than just wera a comfortable flat shoe. I Mean we can find this category of perosn in other 1st world countries because their roads are just right for heels year in, year out, and even at that, they still appreciate the flats.

Now in our country and our bad road network, our day to day hustle  itself, the simplicity of a very comfortable boot which is something craved by the whole residents.

Now, after the law guiding the NYSC, and the comfort generally craved by everyone, no one would think that the someone in their right frame of mind, would go out, search for a Heely white pair of boots, and put them on to CDS for NYSC. This Aunty is looking for attention or just trying to break the rules to show her level of uncomfortable rule breaking. But from this side of life, it is unnecessary to do that.

from @diaryofanaijagirl – Meet Joshua Beckford, a Nigerian who became the youngest to study in Oxford University at age 6 and graduated age 14 from the Dept of History and Philosophy with distinctions in all the subjects he studied..

When he was a baby he was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism. When he was just a 10months old baby he could already read, write and understand the alphabet, and by the time he turned 2 he could read and speak Japanese fluently.

At age 6, while most kids his age were still learning how to count, Joshua was already intellectually ready to attend one of the best universities in the world!!!. .

He is currently in Nigeria and set to build a school in Kaduna.

I know I’m different from most 16 year olds, but I get to do what I love — Jojo Siwa

time-1566715192741

Singer Jojo Siwa had a sit down with Times magazine and shared her thoughts concerning her type of 16 year Olds. The young lady is aware that she is not as appearance obsessed as most girl her age, who are sexualising their appearance and trying to look a lot older than they actually are. Jojo now has a lot of very young fan base basically due to her colorful looks and free outlook towards life. clearly  she must have encountered some verbal attacks centered around her choice of colors for her outfits, as she seats down with Times to discuss about her fun loving lifestyle.

Credit to @time – @itsjojosiwa, 16, has spaghetti blond hair and a voice like a wooden roller-coaster track—fun, but rough, with unexpected undulations. She began her rise to fame around 2015 as a hammy preteen with a machinating mom on the Lifetime reality TV series @dancemomstv. Since then, a talent deal with @nickelodeon has crowned her as #America’s most famous children’s entertainer—a singular star with more spunk than Shirley Temple and the merchandizing power of both Olsen twins. Arguably, writes @jamielaurenkeiles, Siwa’s main career is as a singer, though what sets her apart from the child stars before is the relative equanimity of her pursuits, and the way they’ve been stitched together to perpetuate one another, using her online presence as a thread. On YouTube, Siwa has 10 million subscribers, mostly grade-school kids and preteen girls who listen to her #music, consume her lifestyle content and beg for the hundreds—thousands?—of products that are featured throughout both. While other child stars were not girl, not yet woman, Siwa made it clear: She was both girl and brand. Read more at the link in bio. Photograph by Charlotte Rutherford (@charlie__chops) for TIME

Credit to @itsjojosiwa  – “What do people want me to do? Wear black every day?”🌈! Thank you so much TIME for this incredible interview and article (link in my bio)! And thank you to everyone who accepts me for who I am! Trust me, I know I’m different from most 16yr olds, I know I dress different, I know I act different, I know people my age don’t normally live life the way I live mine, but I get to do what I love 24/7 and I get to inspire the next generation of kids on such important incredible things like being kind, being confident, and having fun!🌟 Love you guys!

Nigerian Federal University lecturers dislike/Victimize exceptional students — Victim

images

The victims of this University lecturers  event have been speaking up after finding their voices. It is very clear that most people are insecure about their jobs, and are afraid that a younger person or a better person may take their jobs.

While this is not just perculiar to only the universities, it is however very obvious and boldly displayed in Nigerian institutions, when they know that they have the power to make your certificate acceptable of not.

But according to the narration from this Twitter user, it is clear that whatever the lecturer did, has been on the back of his mind through out life.

Dear Lecturers, please taje it easy with victimising your students. We all are facing our own horror and hurdles. Please be better with these students.

Primary education: Teacher scarcity hits public schools, 28 states fail to recruit personnel

punchnewspapers-1559040385086

According to punchnews, Many state governments have refused to employ teachers since 2015 despite an acute shortage of teaching personnel in public primary schools across the country, aa investigated by The PUNCH have shown.

Findings showed that some schools, particularly the ones in the rural areas, had as few as three teachers, who on many occasions absent themselves from work.

Teachers, who spoke with The PUNCH, bemoaned poor remuneration and non-payment of their salaries and allowances.
They said due to poor pay and unpaid wages, they had developed survival strategies including engagement in petty trading and other businesses to augment their incomes.

28 states haven’t employed teachers since 2015 –NUT

The Nigeria Union of Teachers on Monday confirmed The PUNCH’s findings, saying only eight states had employed primary school teachers since 2015.

The union’s National Publicity Secretary, Audu Amba, said apart from Gombe, Kaduna, Imo, Katsina, Kano, Lagos, Plateau and Sokoto states, other 28 states had not employed teachers in the last four years.

This, he said, had been affecting the quality of public primary education in the country.

He also said only 11 states namely Akwa Ibom, Ekiti, Enugu, Gombe, Imo, Kaduna, Lagos, Plateau, Sokoto, Katsina, Yobe and the Federal Capital Territory had recruited secondary school teachers in the last four years.

Besides the non-recruitment of teachers, the NUT national publicity secretary said Abia State owed primary school teachers, five months’ salaries, while their counterparts in secondary schools were being owed 10 months’ salaries.

My Opinion

In a country where you hear the unimaginable amount of money being diverted and stolen by individuals so often that it is beginning to sound like a song, you see the thieves getting more preferential treatment than a royal, you see a weird ass politician proudly showing off his fleet of cars, houses and luxury life when he is only but a  politician with no other means of income snd business. Then things that are in need of these moneys like public schools and amenities , are constantly given excuses (which they never lack) why it isn’t going to ever happen.

Why won’t they abandon the public schools when they open up expensive  private schools for the sake of their kids,and when the kids are old enough for the university, these politicians go right ahead to open up a university?  Children of the poor will always be at the receiving end. This is Nigeria, you are welcome.

FG approves additional N25bn to meet ASUU demands

punchnewspapers-1558492894045

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has said that the Federal Government has just approved an additional N25billion for public universities to meet the demands set by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

Adamu said on Tuesday that the Federal Government had approved the release of additional N25billion to universities.

He said, “Funding has been one of the major challenges of tertiary education in this country. At the inception of this administration, we inherited an unimplementable agreement between the Federal Government and ASUU whose total value was put at N1.3trillion which payment was to be spread over six years.

“Between 2014 to 2017, the nation witnessed an economic downturn and consequently, there were no releases in the N1.3trillion. However, last year, the Federal Government released N20billion directly to universities and all of them have got their share. The Federal Government has just approved an additional N25billion to be shared to beneficiary institutions directly.

On the out-of-school children, the minister said the government had failed to reduce the 13.2million kids it met by half, as it had promised.

Adamu noted that despite all interventions and efforts, the population of out-of-school children stood at 10.2million kids. – #obyorijiblog
