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

ASUU strike: Buhari govt reveals when universities will resume

 

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.

Rollover: 4 Weeks Left For ASUU To Decide Fate Of Ongoing Industrial Action

 Rollover: 4 Weeks Left For ASUU To Decide Fate Of Ongoing Industrial Action.



The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is currently on strike and has been for over 4 weeks. The strike is a result of the failure of the Nigerian government to meet the demands of the union, which include improved funding for the education sector, among others. With no end in sight, the question now is what will happen to the students who are affected by the strike?


There are currently 4 weeks left until the end of the semester, and if the strike is not resolved by then, it is likely that there will be a "rollover" of students to the next semester. This means that students will not be able to graduate on time and will have to extend their time at university.


While a rollover may not be the ideal solution, it may be the only option if the strike is not resolved soon. It is important to remember that the students are not to blame in this situation, and that the Nigerian government is the one who needs to take responsibility for the current state of affairs.


The first main point is that the students are not to blame in this situation. It is the Nigerian government that is responsible for the current state of affairs. The government has failed to meet the demands of the ASUU, and as a result, the union has gone on strike. The students are the ones who are suffering as a result of this.


The second main point is that a rollover may be the only option if the strike is not resolved soon. With only 4 weeks left until the end of the semester, it is unlikely that the strike will be resolved in time. This means that students will not be able to graduate on time and will have to extend their time at university.

The third main point is that the Nigerian government needs to take responsibility for the current state of affairs. The government has failed to meet the demands of the ASUU, and as a result, the union has gone on strike. The students are the ones who are suffering as a result of this. The government needs to take responsibility for its actions and resolve the strike as soon as possible.


Conclusion:

In conclusion, the students are not to blame in this situation. It is the Nigerian government that is responsible for the current state of affairs. The government has failed to meet the demands of the ASUU, and as a result, the union has gone on strike. The students are the ones who are suffering as a result of this.


A rollover may be the only option if the strike is not resolved soon. With only 4 weeks left until the end of the semester, it is unlikely that the strike will be resolved in time. This means that students will not be able to graduate on time and will have to extend their time at university.


The Nigerian government needs to take responsibility for the current state of affairs. The government has failed to meet the demands of the ASUU, and as a result, the union has gone on strike. The students are the ones who are suffering as a result of this. The government needs to take responsibility for its actions and resolve the strike as soon as possible.

 “FG, ASUU Must Have To Come To A Compromise” – Ministerial Nominee Nkama, Speaks On Ending Strike  

 “FG, ASUU Must Have To Come To A Compromise” – Ministerial Nominee Nkama, Speaks On Ending Strike

 


The Senate, on Wednesday, screened and confirmed the seven ministerial nominees whose names were sent to it last week by President Muhammadu Buhari for confirmation as Ministers-designate. 


This is as one of the nominees, Ekumankama Joseph Nkama, called for compromise between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on one hand, and an increased budgetary allocation to the education sector by the National Assembly on the other hand, as the solutions to the incessant ASUU strike.


He also asked the National Assembly to provide additional funding for the educational sector, so as to meet some of the needs of the union.


He said, “there will be the need for compromise. For a very long time ASUU has been sticking to their guns that all the agreements reached earlier must be implemented.


“And we know that from the same source – the same national purse – there are several contending interests seeking for attention.


“My advice will be that federal government and ASUU will have to come to a compromise, and through this, we would be able to solve the issue of ASUU strike once and for all.


“I know the importance of budgetary provision. I want to appeal to the Senate that when the budget is being made for the coming year, there will be adequate provision for the education sector, so that some of these needs that the ASUU members are asking for as a union will be met.”

Members should note that, the payment platforms U3PS (the best payment platform) UTAS, and IPPIS) shall be subjected to three phases of integrity test.

My dear Comrades victory is near. Members are urged to continue praying for successful negotiations and for it to be in our favor.....” statement partly added.

As the struggle continues, I congratulate the members for their dedication and resilience in the patriotic struggle for the survival of our nation's university system. “Members received special praise for maintaining their faith in unity despite the hardship families are experiencing due to the suspension of wages. 

They stated emphatically and clearly that we are not beggars and therefore hunger is a powerless tool to break our determination... our iron is forcing governments to sit down and negotiate with us.

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has called on Nigerian youths and students to look beyond ethnic and religious sentiments in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.


The Coordinator, NANS Zone F, South-East, Onya Ibeabuchi-Moses, alias Aluta Apostle, made the call in an open letter addressed to students and youths of the country.


The letter read: “As we all know 2023 is by the corner, and as far as I am concerned it is an important year for all Nigerians who desire a paradigm shift from the retrogressive status quo we have found ourselves into for a couple of dispensations now, to a new Nigeria full unlimited possibilities and hope.


 “Fellow Nigerian youths and students, there is no gainsaying that we have never had it this bad in the successive history of our nation.


“There have been a myriad of abductions that had happened in the country in the last twelve months, especially that of road and train travelers,” he said.


Mr Moses, therefore, called on Nigerian Youths and students to wake up from their slumber and go all out on election day to do what is necessary.


He said: “This is the power we have, a right that establishes what we want and the resolve that would change our country for good.


“They can buy delegate votes, but the truth remains that we are too big, articulate, ever conscious, dogged and currently enlightened by these businessmen in power, to buy.

We thought God will hear that Nigerian Prophet who Claims ASUU Would Suspend Strike On 17th June, As Students Anticipates, Eagerly Awaits Outcome 

 We thought God will hear that  Nigerian Prophet who Claims ASUU Would Suspend Strike On 17th June, As Students Anticipates, Eagerly Awaits Outcome 



A Nigerian clergyman, barely a month ago, claimed that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) would suspend its industrial action and return to class in June. 


In a viral video, the clergyman was seen telling his congregation that the striking university union would suspend strike this month. 


He said; “By this 17th of June, ASUU would call off strike”


However, the video which went viral on social media, sparked reactions amongst netizens. Students are seen quoting the words of the clergyman while hoping his “prophecy” works out.


Lakevibez reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities embarked on industrial action in February 2022. Other university unions are also on strike over unfulfilled demands by the Federal Government.


Recently the National President of ASUU, Professor Osodeke revealed that the union is awaiting the response of the Federal Government on its demands.


Emmanuel Osodeke told newsmen yesterday that the meeting was fair, saying they were expecting the government to respond to the issues they discussed with the committee.


When asked if ASUU would call the strike off soon since it had a fair deliberation with Briggs committee, Osodeke said, ‘‘I don’t know if we are calling off the strike soon. We are waiting for the final response from the government.”

ASUU President Disassociate Self From Brekete Intervention Funds, Accuses FG of Delaying Strike Suspension 

 ASUU President Disassociate Self From Brekete Intervention Funds, Accuses FG of Delaying Strike Suspension 



The Academic Staff Unions of Universities National President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke alongside his deputy, Dr Chris Piwuna, during a program hosted by Ahmed Isah a human rights activist, accused the Federal Government of negligence towards the nation’s education sector. 


Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, while speaking on the Radio and Television show on Saturday morning, 11th June, disassociated himself from the donated funds available to facilitate the suspension of strike. The professor used the medium to tell the public he won't be accepting the funds based on some reasons he disclosed. 


Osodeke further debunked a viral memo allegeding that the union has suspended strike. He said the memo is totally fake and fabricated to blackmail the union. 


The ASUU boss further accused politicians for neglecting the welfare of lectures and the infrastructures of public universities, adding that without the struggle of the union, public universities would've been in critical condition compared to primary and secondary education in Nigeria.


He said that those who are responsible for taking care of the nation's tertiary institutions have children schooling overseas, reasons why they give little or no attention to funding public institutions of learning. 


The Professor also revealed that many lecturers, including himself, haven't been paid for some months now.


On UTAS, Osodeke made it known that the government's IPPIS payment platform is “fraudulent”. He said despite UTAS scoring about 99.3%, the government has deliberately frustrated the adoption of the payment platform. 


He also decried the working conditions of lecturers. He disclosed that there is no Nigeria university with foreign lecturers, which he said it's bad for the system. He disclosed that lecturers are leaving for other countries such as Ghana because they pay well. 


While responding to questions on the current state of negotiation with the government, Osodeke said the negotiation has been progressive, adding that UTAS is currently being tested again by the NITDA.
