Breaking News Federal Government has Order VC’s For Reopening Universities across the country

RE: FG Order VC’s To Reopen Universities


Though not surprised by the so-called order from the most insensitive government ever in the history of our dear country, Nigeria as regard to the fundamental rights of Nigerian masses, which is right to education.


It is quite clear to everyone who cares to follow updates concerning industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) since middle of February, 2022, that the present government does not have the political will to address some of the reasons if not all that made university based unions to embark on the longest strike that has never been possible under previous administrations in the history of this nation.


However, it is important to straighten the records, Nigerian Public universities were never closed or locked down. This position can be verified with a visit to respective university‘s administrations. The academic staff simply withdrew one of their services to the universities that is teaching, while research and community services are ongoing. Even the unending strikes could be regarded as community service because it is in the overall interest of boosting and advancing our universities to be competitive globally or have a minimum standard of what is called university internationally.


As regard to research, browse through the internet especially academic databases like Scopus, springer and so on and so forth and discover how many publications; such as journals, book chapters, conferences proceedings, seminar etcetera were published by the Nigerian academics this year especially from February, 2022 to date with or without government funding.


To settle the face-off between FG and ASUU and return academic activities to our Universities, I humbly suggest the following options.


1. Terminate appointment of ASUU members


The FG in its recent attitude, the Federal government claims to have wanted that masses to go back to school by-fire-by-force despite the obsolete tools and equipment found on university campuses. Regardless of quality education in tertiary institutions, specifically universities. Since ASUU is “adamant” and refuses to go back to classroom despite court order and now FG order, what is the difference!. The FG should just sack all academics in the country then replace them with other set of Nigerians that would not demand for a better educational system.


2. Employ or Hire professors from around the globe


After sacking all academics, the government should hire senior academics from foreign universities to come and teach the teeming population of students in the universities. This option I swear this government might not attempt to try it. It requires a huge amount of money and no benefit to the political class.


Less I forget, since the quality education is not a way to go as demonstrated by government officials, especially the presidency. The almighty FG should just employ every interested Nigerian with interest to teach in university irrespective of qualification and character, just like political office holders; anybody with senior secondary certificate examination (SSCE) results like WAEC, diploma, NCE and so on, even original NEPA bill should be considered for immediate employment as academics in the universities in order to fill up the vacancy after sacking all lecturers and ensure school “reopens” as soon as possible. 


3. Fulfill the agreement


This government, like its predecessors, entered an agreement with the union a number of times but refused to honor it. Where is his integrity? Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Memorandum of Action (MOA) were duly signed by this government apart from renegotiation reports by the committees willingly set up by the government, but as if like there is nobody in-charge of the administration. Nobody is talking about it except few and the FG wants the patriotic ASUU to also be coward and keep mute and follow blindly until the university education in Nigeria perishes. 


4. Another option


The FG should do nothing and keep blackmailing and issuing propaganda until its remaining months are over. We pray an education friendly president is elected in the forthcoming 2023 general election. Vote wisely, vote freedom.


5. Provisional conclusion


The ball is now on the coat for FG to decide and choose among the options presented above. As a student, I want the government to go for option number three (3) because the country is ours and posterity will be kind to present administration as one that brought an end to the incessant strikes in Nigerian universities.  


God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria

God bless Academic Staff Union of Universities

God bless Nigerian Students

ASUU strike: Buhari govt reveals when universities will resume



The President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has assured that the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, will soon be over.

Goodluck Opiah, the Minister of State for Education, assured that Buhari's administration is committed to ending the ASUU strike.

Opiah gave the assurance in Owerri, Imo State, while addressing journalists over the weekend.


"I can assure you that the government is very concerned about the situation. Even as I speak to you now a lot of thinking, a lot of discussions and meetings are going on with a view to resolving the matter as quickly as possible.

"I am hopeful that the disagreement between the government and ASUU will be resolved soon so that our children can go back to school".

ASUU has been on strike since February 2022 over face-off with the Federal Government due to mode of payment for university lecturers.

 ASUU strike: Nationwide bláçkóut looms as workers threaten to shút dówn power sector 



Workers in the power sector have threatened to shútdówn electricity supply in the country should Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, declare a nationwide protest over the protracted industrial crises in the country’s educational sector.


Under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE, the workers argued that the carefree attitude of government towards the continued closure of schools is a sorry state in the process of Nigeria’s development towards nationhood.


In a statement by its General Secretary, Joe Ajaero, NUEE said it “is deeply sàddenéd and appalled by the impasse between the Federal Government of Nigeria and Unions in the Tertiary Academic Sector (Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Research Institutes) which has avoidably lingered”.


It went on: “This deadlóçk which has lasted for several months with the students staying at home; is undoubtedly exposing the students to all forms of negative vices inimical to nation building.


“NUEE therefore calls on the Federal Government to address all issues concerning non implementation of Agreements and others affecting Nigeria’s hallowed Tertiary Institutions”.

Dayo and Rukayat Studied Engineering at a University in kwara State. 

 


Dayo and Rukayat Studied Engineering at a University in kwara State. They were both Classmates and after Five years of Studying hard, they both graduated. After graduation, Fate took them through different paths of life. 


5 Years later, Rukayat after much frustr#tion of securing a job, ended up as a Secretary in a Building firm earning 50,000 Naira monthly. 


Meanwhile, Dayo on the other hand, couldn't Secure a Job and ended up a Taxi Driver, He makes At least 5,000 daily and if he works for only 20 days in a month, He makes 100,000 Naira that month.


One Evening, Rukayat closed from work and was at the bus stop waiting for taxi when Dayo stopped. She hopped in when she discovered the taxi was going her way but little did she know it was Dayo. All through the journey, she was lost in her Phone. 


She reached her bus Stop and after alighting, just when she was about paying, she took a look at the driver and their eyes met, wow! They were both happy. 


"Is this you?" they both asked themselves simultaneously as if they planned it. Rukayat gave him money but Dayo insisted she keep it. He was happy to see her and for old time sake, he left the money for her even when she insisted that she wanted to pay. They both exchanged contact and left. 


Well, Rukayat went home that night and was lost in thought. Not as if Dayo was looking bad but Dayo driving Taxi? She couldn't wrap her head around it. She Pitied him. Felt Sorry for him. If Dayo had allowed her she would have paid him and beg him to keep the change. 


Little did she know that, Dayo actually has another Taxi running for him, He is a Land owner and he is planning on developing it soon. But because he was driving a Taxi, She felt Pity for him.


On the other hand, Dayo felt sorry for himself too. Before he slept that night, he remembered Rukayat, how neatly she dressed and nice she smells, "She must be earning over 300,000 Naira per month" he said to himself. He felt ashamed, He felt like a failure and he felt she was way ahead of him financially and otherwise. 


Little did he know that, If Rukayat removes the transportation fare and feeding money from her monthly salary, it will take her at least 3 Months to earn what he earns monthly. 


Sadly, this could be some of our reality, you measure your progress and success with that of your friends, Classmates and Relatives even with very limited information you have about them. 


You think yours is worse because you look dirtier, you think yours is worse because you are not on Corporate wears, you think yours is worse because the other person acts and looks Nicer. 


Stay Focused and Face your life. It's not a competition. Stop Comparing things, you don't have the full picture. Every one is running on his own lane. Be contented.

UNIABUJA VC Discloses that Strikes Have Destroyed Our University System , as he Tells ASUU, FG To Avoid It

Strikes have destroyed our university system. This is according to the Vice Chancellor of the University of Abuja, Professor Abdul-Rasheed Na'Allah. He has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government to avoid strikes in order to protect the university system.



There are three main points that will be discussed in this essay. First, the Vice Chancellor's statement will be analyzed. Second, the reasons for the decline of the university system will be examined. Finally, solutions to the problem will be proposed.

The Vice Chancellor's statement is significant because it highlights the negative impact that strikes have on the university system. He argues that strikes have destroyed the system and that they should be avoided in order to protect it. This is a valid point, as strikes do have a negative impact on universities.


There are several reasons for the decline of the university system. One reason is the financial crisis that has affected many universities. Another reason is the political instability in some countries, which has led to a decline in the quality of education. Finally, the increasing number of students has also put a strain on the system.


There are several solutions to the problem of the decline of the university system. One solution is for the government to provide more funding to universities. Another solution is for universities to increase their intake of students so that they can cope with the demand. Finally, universities should also improve their teaching methods so that students can learn more effectively.


Strikes have indeed destroyed our university system. However, this is not the only reason for the decline of the system. There are several other factors that have contributed to the problem. The government and universities need to work together to find solutions to the problem.

Final year student unable to graduate years after being càught writing exam for girlfriend who eventually màrried someone else

 A Final year student unable to graduate years after being càught writing exam for girlfriend who eventually màrried someone else


It's every student's worst nightmare: being caught cheating on an exam. But for one final year student, the consequences were much greater than a simple punishment from the school. Years after being caught writing an exam for his girlfriend, he is still unable to graduate.


The student's story is a cautionary tale of what can happen when cheating goes undetected. It highlights the importance of academic integrity and the severe penalties that can be imposed for violating it.



The student, who wishes to remain anonymous, was caught cheating on an exam in his final year of university. He was writing the exam for his girlfriend, who was unable to write it herself due to an illness.


The student was initially given a punishment of a year's suspension from the university. However, he was later told that he would not be allowed to graduate, even though he had completed all his coursework.


The student has now been trying to graduate for years, but has been unsuccessful. He has appealed the decision, but the university has refused to budge.



The student's story highlights the importance of academic integrity. Cheating is a serious violation of university rules and can lead to severe penalties.


The student's case also highlights the importance of being honest with the university. If he had been honest about what happened, he may have only received a punishment of a year's suspension. However, by trying to cover up the cheating, he has made the situation much worse.


The student's story is a cautionary tale for all students. It highlights the importance of following the rules and being honest with the university. Cheating may seem like a quick and easy way to get ahead, but the consequences can be severe.

Strike: We Will Call Off Strike Moment FG Accepts UTAS – ASUU

 Strike: We Will Call Off Strike Moment FG Accepts UTAS – ASUU



The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has challenged the federal government to accept the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) payment platform for it to call off the ongoing strike.


ASUU national president, Prof. Emmanuel Osedeke, who said this while speaking on Channels Television on Monday night, said the strike will continue unless government accept UTAS and honour the 2009 agreement.


Osodeke said, “Let government tell us they have finished testing the UTAS and sign the agreement, then tomorrow we will call off the strike.


“We challenge the government, when would they sign the agreement? When would they accept UTAS? These are the two questions we should ask Nigerian government,” he stated.

Until FG Accepts UTAS, Honour Our Agreement, No Reopening Of Varsities – ASUU President Declares

 The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, has declared that until the Federal Government accepts the Union's demands and honours their agreement, no universities will be reopened. This is a strong stance taken by the Union in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the Federal Government's decision to reopen schools.



ASUU is demanding that the Federal Government honour their agreement in full, including the payment of salaries and allowances that are owed to members. The Union is also demanding that the Federal Government provide adequate funding for universities so that they can properly function.


Osodeke's declaration means that there is a possibility of a prolonged closure of universities, which would have a negative impact on students and staff alike. However, the Union is standing firm on its position and is prepared to negotiate with the Federal Government in order to reach a resolution.


The first main point is that the Federal Government needs to honour its agreement with ASUU in full. This includes the payment of salaries and allowances that are owed to members. The Union is also demanding that the Federal Government provide adequate funding for universities so that they can properly function.


If the Federal Government does not honour its agreement, it will be in breach of contract. This could lead to legal action being taken against the Government, which would be costly and time-consuming. Furthermore, it would damage the relationship between the Government and the Union, which is already strained.



The second main point is that a prolonged closure of universities would have a negative impact on students and staff alike. Students would miss out on vital learning opportunities, and staff would miss out on income.


A prolonged closure of universities would also have a knock-on effect on the local economy. Businesses that rely on university students and staff would suffer, and this would ultimately lead to job losses.


The third main point is that the Union is prepared to negotiate with the Federal Government in order to reach a resolution. However, the Union is firm in its position and is not prepared to compromise on its demands.


Osodeke has stated that the Union is open to dialogue with the Federal Government. However, he has also said that the Union will not accept anything less than what has been agreed upon. This is a strong stance taken by the Union, and it is one that is likely to result in a resolution.


In conclusion, the Federal Government needs to honour its agreement with ASUU in full. If it does not, there is a risk of a prolonged closure of universities, which would have a negative impact on students and staff alike. However, the Union is prepared to negotiate with the Federal Government in order to reach a resolution.
