Lagos #Tertiary, Primary and Secondary #Schools to #resume 14th and 21st #September 2020 respectively

View this post on Instagram

As the effects of COVID-19 continues to alter our way of life, we are launching a free COVID-19 Care Pack, which contains medications, hand sanitizers, face masks and handy medical equipment that could be used to check the body temperature. In the event that someone tests positive to the virus but would prefer home-based care as against staying at the isolation center, this care pack will be given to such people to aid their treatment and management of the virus. Also, after deliberations and consultations with stakeholders, we have made the decision that all tertiary institutions in Lagos State are to re-open for academic activities from September 14, 2020. While primary and secondary schools are to resume on September 21, 2020, but this date could be subjected to further review. Until we are confident that we have the virus under adequate control, all event centers, bars, lounges, night clubs, spas, beaches, cinemas, gyms and game arcades are to remain shut till further notice. We are completely and understandably sympathetic to the plight of business owners, especially those operating in the hospitality and tourism sectors. We are not oblivious to the challenges being faced due to the continued closure of businesses, it is imperative that we make sure controls are measures are put in place, so we don’t find ourselves fighting a lost battle with COVID-19. We would make concrete decisions on easing the lockdown in this sector before the end of September. The ease of lockdown is the outcome of a careful and deliberate attempt to ensure that livelihoods are not crippled by the overwhelmingly disruptive impact of the virus. It is certainly not an invitation to carelessness nor nonchalance We will continue to keep our citizens informed and updated on the decisions we are taking in response to the pandemic. We will also continue to ask for your understanding and cooperation. These are challenging times for all of us, and it requires extra levels of patience, sacrifice and understanding. Thank You.

#Nevertooold : 96 year old #Italian Student #GiuseppePaterno #graduates


I have seen people who are not even in their 40s yet always singing the too old song when asked to embark on a new trade, a learning or a job position.

Look at this beautiful soul Giuseppe Paterno, who took everything that came at him in the form of discouragement and mockery and turned it into something worthy of praise and admiration. All you fast living 21st Century generation kids should take a cue from this great man right here. patience is a virtue.

#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 🙄🙄.
