Bad leaders: Son of the Head of the Nigerian Universities Commission graduates from a UK university

seunoloketuyi-1522678444197

‪You steal from the Country, send your kids abroad for proper education, then you cause strikes, destroy the education of the poor man’s kids.

Isn’t it strange that the children of the president of Nigeria are not based in Nigeria. The depth of destruction going on is something they don’t want their kids 1000 feet close to it.

The poor are suppose to her poorer while the stealing rich get richer. They are quick to persecute Internet fraudsters even though they steal more money than them.

If you are a Head of the Nigerian Universities Commission and your kids are abroad schooling in another Country, then your family obviously know that you are about to play with the fate of the poor man’s child. So you send them out to be better people, while you deceive your own people.

You have the world believe that you are doing your best for the Nation, but you are only doing your best at making you life and that of your family better.

Ladies and gentlemen this picture was taken in Dec 2017, when the young man graduated, While Non Academic staff of Universities in Nigeria were still striking for their payment related issues. They  just resumed from their strike two weeks ago, even though their demand have not been met, but because they lead to go back to work to make a living.  Are you now getting the true picture of Nigerian leaders? The valve difference between a € and N is so much apart, that you have to know how much you earn to send your kids to universities out there.

Meanwhile this young man is going to either stay back in that Country to make a living for himself, or come back to Nigeria where the best paying jobs are waiting for him. This is not the life anyone should be living, Nigerians are suffering so much in this Country. So when next you see a Nigerian being miserable, know that they are the strongest humans on earth.

If you can survive being a Nigerian, you can survive any and everything on earth.

Shocking:  Sokoto Pays N5,000 Monthly To 10,120 Families To Keep Girls In Schools .

instablog9ja-1521835168703

Even though I advise everyone never to trust any statistics coming from Nigeria,the Executive governor of sokoto state, has come out to either exaggerate or give a slightly untrue number of families he claims to pay their daughters to remain in school.

The Governor has said that 10,120 families in Sokoto State receive the sum of N5,000 every  month, to encourage  girls child education. The statement was made by Mallam Musa Lumu, Chairman of Gwadabawa Micro Finance Bank, Sokoto.

Mallam Musa said  that his bank and four other Micro Finance Banks were handling the payments via a conditional cash transfer scheme introduced by the state government.

“The stipend is expected to support the families’ economies so as to discourage parents from sending their children to hawk. It will also assist the parents to provide kits and other minor demands that would enhance educational pursuit,” he said. .

He said that the state government had invested much toward supporting child education programmes from basic to tertiary levels, and urged parents to take advantage of such gestures to educate their children.

Lumu said that the gesture by the government and development partners would encourage parents to send their wards to schools so as to prepare them to compete for opportunities in future. .

He said that the state government had provided N 500 million as counterpart funding toward executing UNICEF education projects comprising the cash transfer scheme and other interventions.

In other words, the Sharia state is saying that it encourages the girls in its state to send furls to school by giving N5000 each to 10,120 families, making it N50,600000 million in a month? I don’t know about you, but I always have my doubts.

University of Ibadan Admits 5,000 Postgraduate Students.

University-of-Ibadan-UI

With job seeking not yielding any positive result in Nigeria, many have gone back to school, to have a masters certificate. With this decision, came a retaliation from institutions to encourage the plan. With that said, the Dean of Postgraduate School, University of Ibadan, UI, Professor Jonathan Babalola  announced that the institution has offered admission to about 5,000 out of 15,000 candidates that applied for admission into various postgraduate degree programmes for the 2017/18 academic session.

Speaking on Monday at the 73rd Interdisciplinary Research Discourse of the institution titled “Synthetic Biology: From Biology to Engineering”, delivered by Professor James Sturgis of the Aix-Marseille University, France, Babalola said that the university has continued to ensure quality control of its applicants by setting aptitude test (Use of English) which majority of the applicants failed.

The Dean assured that the institution would continue to maintain standards and quality to ensure that the best of applicants gain admission to the university.

Speaking earlier, the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Idowu Olayinka noted that the university would ensure partnership with the Aix-Marseille University to develop fully the area of synthetic biology.

In his lecture, Sturgis called on the Nigerian universities and government at all levels to invest in Synthetic biology to develop solutions to improve crops, livestock and health of its citizenry.

While describing it as a low investment with huge returns, Sturgis maintained that synthetic biology investment would ensure the independence of Nigeria from being at the mercy of foreign interests and multinationals companies.

He however called for appropriate establishment of legal and regulatory framework to ensure bio-safety, bio-security and ethics.

My Opinion:

This is a very good thing that UI has done. The days of irrelevant prevention of admission acquisition is old and gone. Give admission to people, And have the youths engaged in something that will keep them busy, for the safety of us all. People need to know that they are doing something good. If there is no job,there has to be a school program. So thank you to University of Ibadan for this huge step. I only hope they don’t regret it.

Parents paying for children to learn British accent in Abuja – NAN report .

download (1)

The insecurity of our country, has got a lot of people with option B, in life. Parents all over the Country, are doing things that they belief will help their children in any way possible. This include, buying their children a British accent while they school in Abuja Nigeria. According to NAN, Some parents in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have come out to own up to the fact  that they pay extra fees for their children to learn how to speak with British accent.

The parents, who spoke in separate interviews with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), gave several reasons why they felt having British accent would help the children, with some regarding it as proper education.

Investigations in some schools revealed that the teaching of British accent had been included in the curriculum. The classes, developed to satisfy parents, were named ‘Phonics’, ‘Elocution’, ‘Enunciation’ and ‘Diction. .

These classes were most times separated from the normal English and Literature lessons commonly found in schools and were allocated special times in the timetable, because it is held in Hugh esteem by parents of the students.

Classes in the schools go for cumulative prices between N10,000 and N25,000 per term, added to the standard school fees. .

According to some parents, having their children speak in British accent gives them a feeling that they are receiving proper formal education; unlike the standard they (parents) had in their time.

They said since English originated from Britain, it was important that children learned to speak it in the proper accent, adding that it would help the children to relate better with people abroad. .

Mrs Christina Ayuba, a businesswoman said she was glad that her children were being taught British accent in school. She said although she did not fully understand the way the children speak lately, she was proud that they speak that way, as it made her feel like she was giving them the best education. .

Another parent, Mr Oyietari Oboro, an engineer with two children told NAN that he hired a tutor to teach his children the accent at home; in addition to lessons they receive in school. .

He added that it was a necessary skill as the world was going global and people needed to be armed with the right conversational skills; noting that British accent had become an added advantage.

MY OpiNion: 

First if all, I can’t blame these parents for wanting their kids to speak in British accent, because we were colonised by the British government, so it is only appropriate to admire our colonial masters. But in Reality, our inferiority. Complex has gotten to a whole new level since decades ago, so don’t expect these parents to be the Ines to stop it in their children. If they can’t send their kids abroad to school their and have the accent in a natural way, then they can pay for it here #cheaper.

The fact is that the priority list of job acquisition in Nigeria, goes from The foreigner (light skin), down to the boss’s relative, the ones who slept with the boss for it, and then those with accent, before the qualified Ines are considered.

In Nigeria today, if you don’t have any foreign accent, you can’t work in many places. They clearly tell you that they only take people with foreign accent and you can’t to anything about it. Mass Communication students today, have to add British and American accent to their learning, or else no one will employ them.

I don’t blame the parents of this kids, and I don’t expect any one to. They are using this as a survival skill for their children. The worst is that in future, their children will be employed, and yours will not be. At the rate this Country is going, worst things will soon be discovered.

The Government has failed us. They tell the masses that we are the bad beans that spoil the Country’s name with lawlessness, but I strongly disagree. Every country on earth, has it bug chunk of bad masses, and I didn’t stop their own government from doing what is expected of it. They provide social amenities, and improve living conditions of their already perfect Countries (Even though there isn’t a perfect country). The ones here are not in anyway doing anything to improve the Country. But you have the guts to say that the citizens are to be blamed? If I were those parents, I will enroll my kids in Latin, Asian, Greek, and even Hindu classes, because the kids have to be properly armed to ho into the world of give and take.

instablog9ja-1519152209633

In a bid to promote Nigerian languages, tertiary institutions in different states of Nigeria, have been making the common language of it resident state a compulsory supplement to the courses of the freshmen into a University.

Herdsmen poison dam, destroy UNILORIN research farms .

instablog9ja-1518859397237

Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Prof. Sulyman Abdulkareem, has accused herdsmen of poisoning the university’s dam with chemicals. .

He also said the herdsmen were destroying the multi-million naira research and training farms by making their cattle to illegally graze on the campus. The university therefore gave the herdsmen notice to quit its campus. .

Abdulkareem handed down the notice at a special security meeting held at the institution last Thursday with leaders of the 11 Fulani settlements on the university land. .

But Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Usman Adamu, told the university management that the herdsmen destroying the institution’s farm land were not living in the community. .

According to him, there are other ethnic groups embarking on illegal activities like logging and are not differentiated from the Fulani. .

At the meeting, Abdulkareem told the Fulani settlers that “enough is enough”, stressing that the university could no longer condone the destructive activities of their grazing cattle on its land, “as this is becoming too costly for the institution to bear”. .

He said: “We have a multi-million naira programme that is currently at stake now because they (herders) have gone to the extent of uprooting tubers of cassava for their cattle to feed on. .

We cannot conduct any research or training on the farm again because each time we get to a point where their cattle can feed on it, they go back there and destroy it. We care about them but we cannot afford to keep them on our land again. .

We are now facing a lot of financial problems and yet they are compounding the problems for us. The teak plantation, several times they have set it on fire and there are millions of naira invested in that place.”

This people have gone as far as the universities. There is off no place in Nigeria that these herdsmen haven’t penetrated and destroyed.

They even got to my village.

Update on missing N36m: JAMB suspends snake story teller Philomena Chieshe.

Jam Registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyede

JAMB, On Sunday, disclosed that it had suspended its employee, Philomina Chieshe. The employee who presented the unbelievable, but the first of its kind, story to the board, concerning a missing N36million which she reported, swallowed by a snake in the board’s office in Makurdi, Benue State. The head of information, Fabian Benjamin, has disclosed to PUNCHnews that the board was taking Mrs Philomena Chieshe through other disciplinary measures, while the matter has been handed over to the security agencies for investigation.

It was learnt that Chieshe explained in her statement that a “mystery snake” sneaked into JAMB accounts office and made away with the N36m cash, the money that was gotten from the sales of scratch cards by Benue state JAMB offices and designated centers to secondary school leavers of the state, who intended to gain admission into higher institutions.

A team of auditors was said to have been dispatched to different state offices of JAMB to take inventory of sold and unsold scratch cards and recover the generated money, only for the team to be reportedly told by the woman, that she could not account for N36m made in the previous years before the abolition of scratch cards sell.

However, in the course of interrogation, Chieshe reportedly changed the narrative, saying that it was her housemaid who connived with another woman, Joan Asen, to “spiritually steal the money” from the vault in the accounts office.

Meanwhile, it was learnt that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had begun investigation into the matter following a recommendation by the Federal Executive Council late last year that JAMB should be investigated.

The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who briefed council about the performances of some government agencies last year had said JAMB for the first time remitted N5bn to the government’s coffers with a promise to pay the balance of N3bn compared to maximum N3m remitted yearly in the last 40 years.

From  all indication! the  woman is suspected to have spent the money over the years, never expecting the board to ever come for a remitting in anytime soon, but was taken unaware when EFCC showed up, causing  her to fall back on the ridiculous tale. But without being threatened by the federal government , JAMB wouldn’t have commenced the investigation that has led to this ridiculous findings. We hope they extend this investigation to the entire 36 state, because I am very sure they won’t be this serious with equally looting staffs over there, because they are being protected by the President.  Since is involves Benue state, the President will definitely give a go ahead nod to the EFCC to drill everyone from Benue, down to the rest of the entire South.  Meanwhile Jamb is incredible dubious. You give out N3m every year to the Government, as against N8billion? How do we even manage to run this country with this high number of  corrupt individuals? God will help us.

Study shows how Instagram has improved the reading culture of African Youths.

Gone are the days when people from other Continents assume that If you wanted to hide an information from Africans, you should write it down, With the explanation that Afriacn hate to read. Even before the Era of social media, we Africans will also picture the Caucasians as a super smart race, who read books all the time, and didn’t have to wait for a smart question  to be completed before they spring up with the answer.

Even as a kid, we saw the well written pen pal letters that came to us from kids our ages in the U.S. They were intimidating and almost perfect, but looking back now, I realised that they were obviously supervised by their Smart teachers.  We always looked forward to the arrival of these laters, as that was our very own social media those days.  Up until the time when Mark Zuckerberg came to our rescue, we have always thought that every single person in the land of the Caucasians, is distinctively smart. This could have been from the impeccably spotless stories our parents who adored the white people so much, had to pass down to we the naive wide eyed kids. We obviously grew up with those stories at the back of our mind, which is the source of racial discrimination we are suffering in from in Nigeria, where a light skinned person is placed at the top of a black person’s priority list.

while we imagined wrong,  they over there, equally  assumed that every single person on the AFRICA soil, was dull, and stupid. At this point, we all had a wrong perception of each other, not until the God of neutralism sent us social media. Now every single day that passes by, an everage Nigerian reads at least a page of write ups , when  all social media captions he/she has read is  combined.

This didn’t only improve the reading culture of Nigerians alone, it helped us see that there are a lot of Caucasians who can’t write the English language that they are known to speak everyday.  Africans found out that the worst kind of English is among the African Americans. They have the worst English so far, and since they are super hyperactive, they are influencing the rest of the world with it, because they are in charge of the hip hop world which happens to be a world accepted type of music.

while Africans mandatorily have a minimum of two languages to read and write, and still perfect both, it only leaves them shocked to know that the one and only language that these white people invented and supposedly mastered enough to introduce to we Africans, they can not write it.

The Internet (GOOGLE ) got it even right when they started to interpret English in to different languages. Helping us master our English language as well as our African Languages. Now the world knows that Africans are super smart, even though the leaders are not completed painting that picture to the world.

Now we know that whatever has a positive side, will always have its negative as well.  We have used the Internet for negativity as Africans, other countries have also used it for deep evil, to the extent that the very famous ‘Nigerian Prince scam’  which Every Nigerian youth was suspected to be part of, was actually being done by a hand full of  white guys (young and old)  in the United state.  This act is undeniably being carried out by Nigerian youths, but studies have  shown that the whole world is know to actually be involved in this unpleasant scam that has left a lot of senior citizens in search of an investment or love in different part of the world , robbed of their life savings. It has also led to the untimely death of many women and men of this world.

While we acknowledge the negative aspect of Social media, like the things of life, we also point out the positive.  We fight the negative, and embrace the good side of life.
