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.

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

Buhari Signs Bill Stopping NYSC from Posting Engineering Graduates to Schools.

instablog9ja-1557684609240

The Engineers (Registration etc) Amendment Bill, 2019, which among others, bars NYSC from henceforth, posting graduates of engineering to secondary schools to teach, was today, signed into law by Pres. Buhari.

The bill which has now become the Act of the National Assembly seeks to promote technological development in Nigeria by ensuring that trained engineers are well positioned to deploy the knowledge acquired in their various fields to the development of technology in the country.

Senator Ita Enang, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, said as against the tradition of posting a large number of engineering graduates to schools by NYSC, youth corps members who are graduates of engineering must henceforth be posted only to engineering firms and other institutions that are relevant to their professional fields.

Aside prohibiting such firms from rejecting engineering graduates posted to them, the Act mandates NYSC to immediately communicate the name of any institution where an engineering graduate is posted to, for his/her primary assignment, to the Council for Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN).

Furthermore, the Act prohibits any foreign engineering firm from operating in Nigeria without being duly registered in the country by COREN. It also mandates such a foreign firm to ensure the introduction of local content into the operations of the company by employing Nigerian engineers.

Enang also said the new Act grants “compulsory attestation to all expatriate quota for engineering practitioners, including turnkey project, that there are no qualified and competent Nigerians for the job in question at the time of application and that granting of the expatriate quota shall be contingent on training of such number of persons as may be required for the execution of the job, and; ensuring that, before being allowed to practice in Nigeria, such foreign engineering practitioners granted work permit, register with the council and obtain such licenses as may be required from time to time; investigating engineering failures.’’ – #obyorijiblog

Khloe Kardashian shares a repost from 2016 that vividly describes her current predicament.

-1553272440022

Reposted from @khloekardashian – RP from a 2016 post “Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.” Letting go with love takes great strength.

We have to learn to stop taking on peoples problems as if they are our own. Loving people does not mean we have to carry their burdens and confusions on our back.

Sadly, You can only express your opinion on a situation. You can’t want their life more than they do. This is in fact their life to figure out on their own and in their own time.

I do believe in timing. I do believe timing is everything. You forcing your beliefs and dreams down ones throat is only going to cause resentment and possibly manifest deeper issues.

Possibly to the point of no return. “People say time heals all wounds… I say time heals wounds but scars are left to remind you what you have been through and what you survived.”

Stop shattering your own heart by trying to make a relationship (friend, family, partner) work that clearly isn’t meant to work. We have to stop trying to repaint people’s colors. We have to learn to believe the love we AREN’T given.

You can’t love someone into loving you. (God I wish it were that easy) You can’t force someone to be loyal, kind, understanding. You can’t force someone to be the person you need them to be. Even if it’s for their own good!! Sometimes the person you want most is the person you’re best without.

😩😫 You have to understand… some things ARE supposed to happen in your life, but they just are NOT meant to be. Damn… It took me so many years to understand that.

Don’t lose yourself by trying to fix what’s meant to stay broken. God always has a plan even if we can’t understand it (or don’t want to understand it) Even in the darkest of places… Our Lord sees His vision.

We might not understand it at the moment but I promise you, your future will always bring understanding & clarity of why things didn’t work out. Don’t put your happiness on hold for someone (family, friend, partner) who isn’t holding on to you.

“A Girl once told me… Be careful when trying to fix a broken person. For you may cut yourself on their shattered pieces” – #obyorijiblog
