Nigerian students give government 7 - day ultimatum

The National Association of Nigerian Students, has given the Federal Government seven days ultimatum to end the current ASUU strike.

The student's body asked the govt. to implement the agreement reached with the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The students’ body threatened to embark on protest if the government failed to meet up with the demands of the ASUU before the deadline.

Speaking at the Nigeria Union of Journalists secretariat,Abeokuta, the National Public Relations Officer of the association, Azeez Adeyemi said:

“We will not fold our arms and allow our institutions to be shut down for months again because of Federal government insensitivity and lackadaisical approach towards education at all levels in Nigeria”.

“As majority of the wards of those whose immediate responsibility is to ensure adequate funding of education in Nigeria are schooling in choice universities abroad and they don’t give a damn even if our institutions are closed for decades”.

He further stated that the on going fight against corruption and corrupt leaders must be wholistic.

“A situation where the ruling APC government shield their members and supporters from being investigated after submission of petitions against some of their stalwarts is not acceptable to us as stakeholders in the Nigerian project.

“We hereby call on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to forthwith investigate the petitions against Comrade Adams Oshiomole, former governor of Edo state, Rt.Hon.Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor of Rivers state, Senator Godswill Akpabio, former governor of Akwa-Ibom state, Babachir Lawal, past secretary to the Government of the Federation and others.

“In the same vein, we salute the courage of former Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose for voluntarily submitting himself to probe by EFCC after office”.

Education / 2019 ASUU Strike Latest Updates
« on: November 06, 2018, 09:18:33 PM »
The academic staff union of universities, ASUU declared an indefinite strike embarked upon by the union Sunday night, after its National Executive Council, NEC, meeting held in Akure, Ondo State.

The National President of ASUU, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, while announcing the commencement of the strike, said the action is because of the insincerity of government in meeting their demands.

However, the minister of Education, Adamu Adamu has  regretted the action of ASUU. He said: 

“I must say that this is difficult to reconcile with all the efforts and positive achievements we have been able to make.

“Let me begin by saying that the issues necessitating this strike dates back to 2009 when the then government of late President Umaru Musa Yar Adua signed an agreement with the ASUU on funding of federal universities in the country.

“The agreement provided for funding of universities to the tune of N1.3trillion over a period of six years. It is instructive to know that Nigeria was experiencing the oil boom at that time. It was, therefore, expected that government will be able to meet the terms of agreement. “However, international oil prices crashed in subsequent years, thereby throwing the country into economic hardship, at the inception of this administration, the country’s economic fortunes worsened, nose diving into recession, with dire consequences on all sectors of the economy, including education.

“We exited recession not too long ago, and we are just beginning to recover from the consequences of low oil prices, which are happily beginning to pick up.

The current ASUU strike is based on delays in implementing the Memorandum of Understanding, MOU, all parties allegedly agreed to in the year 2017, including compelling government to conclude the renegotiation of other agreements also collectively reached in 2009.

Follow the updates below to know how it would eventually play out.

Mr Eazi, a Nigerian Musician based in the UK has expressing his joy through his twitter handle disclosed that he has generated over 1 million dollars in music streaming alone.

He said, “if someone had told me in 2015 that it was possible for an African Artist making African music to generate over 1million US dollars in streaming only revenue I would not have believed.”

The singer in another tweet added , “woke up to a very nice alert hitting the account!!! Praise master Jesus!!!.”

The afrobeat singer is set to hold a listening party for his yet to be released sophomore studio album titled “Life Is Easy Volume 2, Lagos to London” November 8.

While inspecting the Legacy House headquarters of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Abuja today(6/11/18), Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign Council and Senate President Bukola Saraki has assured that, given the nationwide support of Nigerians, the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar would definitely be victorious in the February 2019 Presidential election.

National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus led Saraki round various offices at the Legacy House.

Secondus urged Nigerians to mobilize enmass for the election, and tasked them to vote out the APC come 2019.

Saraki noted that “since the emergence of Atiku as PDP Presidential candidate, there has been renewed hope among Nigerians towards actualizing their collective quest to rescue our nation from the misrule of the incompetent, divisive and deceptive President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.”

“Atiku’s candidacy has reunited Nigerians across board and reawakened our collective consciousness towards the restoration of purposeful leadership and national productivity, irrespective of ethnicity, religion and political affiliations.”

Senator Godswill Akpabio, who had defected from the Peoples democratic party,PDP to the APC has said though he is not God, he has the assurances that President Muhammadu Buhari will return to power.

While in the PDP until defection, Akpabio was the senate Minority leader.

He made the declaration in an interview with journalists. He said God had designed Buhari to help the country at this point and that he decided to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) to help the president stabilize the country.

“I am not God and I am not also a prophet but sometimes God reveals things to people that he loves and I know God loves me because I love God.

“The projection is that in terms of the political rigmarole that is going on in terms of alignment and realignments, 2019 victory will belong to the All Progressive Congress (APC) and most especially President Muhammadu Buhari will be returning for a second term in office.

“I am saying so because God loves Nigeria. This is a man we have tried for so many years to be president of the country.

“One time he gave himself that he was no longer going, he thanked all the supporters but from nowhere, a group of people, some from PDP and APC came together and went back to appeal to him to come and they even opted to buy the form for him to come.

“In spite of his resistance, he came and then of course confusion entered into the PDP family and God is a master designer, he eventually emerged president,” he said when he was asked what he thinks about the 2019 election.

 He explained that when Buhari emerged president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan did not wait for the final result of the election before calling to congratulate him.

 “I believe that in 2015 we all had our choices but God had his way and when God has a hand in something, I don’t think God is a master of uncompleted projects.

“This was not a decision of man, this was a decision of God and therefore God can give him the second term through Nigerians and you can see why I will be bold enough to say so that you can see the kind of political personalities that he continues to attract despite the rigmarole of some members of his political party.

“That is why I can project that come 2019 general elections the APC will become victorious,” he added.
