Bayelsa Varsity Students Protest Indefinite Closure Of School

Some students of the Bayelsa State-owned Niger Delta University, Amassoma, on Saturday, took to the streets to protest the indefinite closure of the university.

The lecturers of the institution, had on April 28, 2016, proceeded on an indefinite strike, following the inability of the state Governor, Mr. Seriake Dickson, to pay backlog of workers’ salaries.

As of the time the lecturers commenced their strike, the state government was owing the lecturers and non-lecturers of the NDU four months salary arrears as they have not been paid since January 2016.

The students, under the aegis of the Niger Delta Visionary Movement, also criticised other students’ bodies such as the Student Union Government of NDU, National Union of Bayelsa State Students and the National Union of Izon-Ebe Students, describing them as puppets.



The aggrieved students in a statement by the spokesman,, NDVM, Mr. Wisdom Adike, threatened to march Unclad with their books and block the entrance to Government House if after a week the stakeholders failed to settle their rift and open the university.

Adike said, “We wish to bring to the notice of the general public, that the strike embarked upon by the ASUU, NDU chapter, on April 26, 2016, over nonpayment of salaries, have led to the shutdown of the institution for over one month now.

“This development has continued to give parents and students great concern.

“Niger Delta University being the only state owned university is a legacy institution established by the late Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha who was recently laid to rest. The institution has not only helped in meeting the manpower needs of the state but the entire Niger Delta region and beyond.

“However, we wish to express our displeasure over the lingering strike and government’s attitude towards resolving the situation. The strike has increased hardship, made students to sit idle at home and lose focus on their academic pursuit, as well prolong their academic programmes, thereby causing youth restiveness and society unrest.”

He wondered why all the students’ bodies kept quiet over the plight of students, a pealing to the Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide to intervene and ensure immediate reopening of the school.

He added, “We also call on the Ijaw Youths Council to stand up, break their silence and defend the legacy of the Ijaw nation by ensuring the immediate reopening of Niger Delta University. This is because now is the time to protect our common heritage.

“We are also using this medium to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in his magnanimity and benevolence in salvaging the state from the current economic crunch and hardship as parents and guardians especially in the local governments of the state have not received salaries for over 12 months, despite the release of bailout funds by the Federal Government.

“Finally, we want to urge all students to remain calm and embrace as all available non-violence means will be utilized to end this strike and return to school.”

"I Donated $900,000 Not $14 Million To US University" - Muhammadu Indimi

The chairman of Oriental Energy Resources, Alhaji Muhammadu Indimi, has denied media reports that he donated US$14 million to Lynn University in the United States. Rather, the amount he donated, according to him, was $900,000. In a statement sent to THISDAY editorial Board Chairman, Mr Olusegun Adeniyi, to protest the piece, “The Prodigal Billionaire”, published in his column of 25th May, 2016, an official of Oriental stated that neither Indimi nor the company donated the figure being credited to him and for which he was being vilified.

The company also listed Universities of Uyo, Port Harcourt, Calabar and Nsukka among institutions of higher learning in Nigeria to which Indimi and his company had extended considerable financial support running into billions of Naira in recent years. Below is the full text of the statement from Oriental, endorsed by its chairman, Indimi: “Following recent online, and media coverage of a donation made by our Chairman, Dr Alhaji Muhammadu Indimi, we find it necessary to provide clarity on the nature of the relationship with Lynn University, and Oriental’s operations in and commitment to the Niger Delta. “Contrary to reports circulating, neither Oriental, nor our Chairman, donated US$14 million to Lynn University. This figure is unsubstantiated, inaccurate and misleading.

The figure jointly donated by Oriental and former partner, Afren Plc, to Lynn University, a University from which Dr. Indimi and nine of his children have received nine Bachelors, five Masters, and one Doctorate degree, is $900,000. “Oriental Energy is a proud indigenous oil company with a steadfast commitment to investing positively and purposefully in the communities where we have operations and beyond.



Oriental is particularly committed to fostering and supporting the development of education and indigenous technical skills, as a fundamental pillar for long term sustainable development. We understand that without adequate investment in the education of the youth, there will be no sustainable economic growth. “This is why the organisation has, over a four-year period, contributed billions of Naira to the communities where we operate in Nigeria.

These donations include scholarships to beneficiaries from the Universities of Uyo, Port Harcourt, Calabar and Nsukka, amongst others, the development of University Of Port Harcourt’s digital library, the re-habilitation of the University of Uyo’s Petroleum Institute, infrastructure development in our host communities” as well as donations towards support for Internally Displaced People in the North East of Nigeria, and victims of terrorism. “Oriental Energy Resources will continue to protect its reputation and reiterate its commitment to the Nigerian community particularly in instances like this where journalistic due diligence would have disproved the unsubstantiated rumors.”

Tecno Gives Scholarships To Primary School Pupils

Continuing a tradition of celebrating child education with focus on qualitative science-based learning for children, Africa’s leading mobile maker and leader in Nigeria mobile market, Tecno as part of the children’s day celebration has awarded scholarships to primary school pupils in Lagos.


The mobile giant Tecno modelled its second quarter 2016 corporate social responsibility as a brand experience and educational contest for children schooling at several primary schools, mostly public, situated in the Lagos metropolis.
Speaking on Tecno ’s brand activity which started on May 18, 2016 and targeted at primary schools in Lagos, the brand’s marketing and PR lead, Attai Oguche said Tecno ’s aim of the contest is to instill healthy competitive spirit in children, to pursue success in life through academic excellence.
In his words: “We aim to use Tecno brand as a vehicle of growing healthy competition for academic excellence amongst our children.


While cultivating the next generation of mobile users in Tecno’s excellent brand experience, providing them with a form of study safety net is our priority this children’s day,” says Attai Oguche
The two week long Tecno CSR activities included donations of branded gift items to pupils at the schools’ assembly grounds and stocking of the school libraries of beneficiary primary schools with quality stationeries.


The principal administrators of the schools including principals of Abesan primary school Ipaja, St. Andrew’s Anglican primary school Ayobo, Community primary school Ipaja, St. Anthony Int’l schools Ijaiye, Marian International Isolo, State Primary school Ipaja and Estate nursery and primary school Ipaja expressed their gratitude towards Tecno for its sustained support of child education at the elementary level even in the recent harsh economic times.




“Tecno has shown strong commitment to supporting quality education for the Nigerian child. In the harsh economic times facing the country, we have seen brands soft peddle in CSR commitments but Tecno has remained true,” said Mrs. Jenle Efemena, Head mistress of St. Anthony Int’l schools Ijaiye.

The 2016 Children’s day contest held today culminated in scholarship awards being given by Tecno to the three best participating pupils from the participating public and private schools in Lagos state.

The winners took home a cash prize of a hundred thousand naira (N100, 000.00) each amidst branded gift items.

Tecno is a leading producer of in-demand, high-end mobile phones. Founded in 2006, the company has 50% share in Africa’s smart phone market.

Nigerian Student Attacked With Iron Rod In India Over Parking Spot

India's foreign ministry says it is looking into an alleged attack on a Nigerian student by a local man in the southern city of Hyderabad.

Police said 26-year-old Bamilola Kazim was allegedly assaulted by Mohammed Gafoor after a row on Wednesday

Mr Kazim was treated for wounds at a local hospital and released.

Last week a student from the Democratic Republic of Congo was beaten to death by a group of Indian men after an argument in Delhi.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the killing of the Congolese man.
Indian foreign ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted on Friday that Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj "had urgently sought report" on Wednesday's incident from the local government "and is monitoring the case".

Police said Mr Kazim allegedly parked his car in front of Mr Gafoor's house, and was attacked with an iron rod by the latter after an altercation.




Hyderabad police officer K Srinivas told BBC Hindi's Imran Qureshi that the two men had "reached some understanding" after Mr Gafoor was arrested and released on bail.
Gideon Omodowale of the local Nigerian Students Association said it was a "small issue".
"He [Mr Gafoor] has apologised and we have also forgiven him. It happens," he told the BBC.

There are more than 4,000 students from African countries in Hyderabad.

Following last week's killing of an African student in Delhi, a group of African embassies had said they did not want to participate in Africa Day celebrations on Thursday because of repeated attacks on African students in India.

They relented after Ms Swaraj promised to ensure the safety of African students in India.
Mr Swarup said the Indian government had received news from its embassy in Kinshasa, the capital of Democratic Republic of Congo, that some "Indian establishments and shops were attacked on 23 and 25 May as a reaction perhaps to the killing of the Congolese national" in Delhi.

"It has been reported that by Wednesday, things have calmed down," Mr Swarup was quoted as saying by The Hindu newspaper.

Authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo have not yet commented on the remarks.
In February, a Tanzanian student was assaulted and partially stripped by a mob in the southern city of Bangalore.

Photo Of A Stranded Abuja Corper Sleeping On A Pedestrian Bridge In Kubwa


It was just like an horror scene from a scary movie, stumbling on a body snoring away on a pedestrian bridge few metres away from Kubwa Garage.

As if that was not enough, the snoring fellow was gorgeously cladded in the highly revered NYSC outfit. Upon waking him up, the horror story he narrated will exhaust several pages.

Is it not unfathomable that fresh graduate of one of Nigeria's Ivory Tower has been rendered homeless in the course of serving his fatherland? To further add salt to his injury, he was outrightly rejected by the government parastatal he was posted to for no concrete reason.

To further exacerbate his predicament, the unfortunate young Nigerian graduate is battling with pneumonia . This is to serve as a wake up call to our policy makers to holistically review the NYSC Acts. Also, as a short term solution, we hereby call upon every well meaning Nigerian to come to the aid of Abuja corp members before the untold stress impinged on innocent corps members exceeds yield point.

PHOTO: Girl Who Just Wrote WAEC Electrocuted In Lagos After High Tension Fell On Her

The sickening positioning of the high tension over a residential house is what baffles me. On Saturday 21st May 2016, 14-year-old Deborah Faleke was instantly killed after one of the high tension cables that ran above their compound at Fagbeyiro Street in the Alakuko area of Lagos State fell and electrocuted her, NGLatest has learnt.

Deborah had concluded sitting for her WAESCCE only weeks ago.

Her father, Pastor Ademola Faleke said:

“On Friday, I went out of Lagos State for a ministration. So, the girl went to stay with her eldest sister on Fagbeyiro Street. That was not her first time.

“I was at Iyana-Ipaja on Saturday on my way back when I was called on the telephone and told about the incident. There was no rainfall. Deborah was not sent on any errand. She was just passing through the gate when the wire fell on her. The marks on her body showed that the wire fell on her head.

“She was rushed to a hospital. The workers there said they did not have adequate equipment. So she was rushed to a second private hospital on Adegbola Street, where she later died. The doctor issued a death certificate to us.

“She just finished secondary school; she was also my interpreter. She was very active in church. I want the electricity distribution company to at least show some concern. My daughter, who is my joy, has been taken away by a careless electrical connection.”

20 Quotes To Inspire Teamwork At Work

The difference between success and
failure is a great team. Here’s how to
inspire yours.

When I first became a planner and a
manager in the spring of 2010. I was
doing it as a joke to keep myself busy. I
make my own hours, determine what I
wanted to achieve and avoid pretending i
know alot. But as i grow consistently in it
I began to exhibit many strange attributes never taught in recent times.
Ultimately, it creates some route I would never have
journeyed. After several years of practice
I learned that the only way to build a company / organisation with great success and scale is to build a great team. No matter how smart, talented, driven, or
passionate you are, your success as an
entrepreneur or HOD depends on your
ability to build and inspire a team. A
successful leader is one who can spur his
or her team members to work well
together toward a common vision and goals.

To inspire your team members, you’ll
have to talk to them, of course. I hate
meetings, but I love short (seven to 20-minute) huddles to align and motivate the team, distribute roles and
quickly achieve result. One effective way
to begin or end a huddle is by sharing a
quote. I love quotes.

Below are 20 quotes I believe will inspire
you from well-known coaches, athletes,
business leaders, and authors that will
compel you and your team members to
work well together:
1. “Talent wins games, but teamwork and
intelligence win championships.” –
Michael Jordan
2. “Teamwork is the ability to work
together toward a common vision. The
ability to direct individual
accomplishments toward organizational
objectives. It is the fuel that allows
common people to attain uncommon
results.” –Andrew Carnegie
3. “Alone we can do so little, together we
can do so much.” –Helen Keller
4. “I invite everyone to choose
forgiveness rather than division,
teamwork over personal ambition.” –
Jean-Francois Cope
5. “None of us is as smart as all of us.” –
Ken Blanchard
6. “Coming together is a beginning.
Keeping together is progress. Working
together is success.” –Henry Ford
7. “If everyone is moving forward
together, then success takes care of
itself.” –Henry Ford
8. “The strength of the team is each
individual member. The strength of each
member is the team.” –Phil Jackson
9. “Collaboration allows teachers to
capture each other’s fund of collective
intelligence.” –Mike Schmoker
