“Edo Owned University not for the poor” - Management refutes media reports

The management of Edo University, Iyamho, Etsako West Local Government Area, Edo State, has dissociated itself from online and mainstream media reports with the headlines “Edo Owned University not for the poor,” and “VC says Edo University not for poor Nigerians”.

A statement signed by the school’s Registrar, Dr. Mrs. Isoken Ogboro, indicated that at no point in time did the Acting Vice Chancellor, either expressly or impliedly made a statement that could be conjured in the manner of the headlines in the misleading reports.

Edo University, Iyamho

“We do not therefore agree with those headlines and consequently view those captions as sensational and calculated attempt to tarnish the good image of the university.

“It is our submission that these headlines are misinformed, misguided as regards its mission of providing quality education to all classes of Nigerians “, according to the statement.

The statement described the University as one envisioned to provide quality education geared towards the socio-economic, political and technological advancements of the Nigerian state and indeed the world, irrespective of social class.

The university averred that the misleading reports may have been initiated by people motivated by partisan hegemonistic interest who found it appropriate to use the media as instruments to push them through.

Disproving the claims further, the university asserted that it has an “inbuilt scheme for the poor known as “Undergraduate Indigent Students’ Scholarship Awards (ISSA) and the Undergraduate Full Scholarship Awards (UFSA) purely designed to reward excellence and provide access to quality education to indigent students.”

It therefore condemned in strong terms any allegation or misinformation, either published on the pages of newspapers or orally spread by any person or group of persons to tarnish the good image of the Acting Vice Chancellor and the University.

It urged the reading public, both online and of-line to disregard the misleading reports, just as it assured the general public that the acting VC would continue in his good works and not allow those it called “disgruntled elements” to distract him from his avowed desire to run and position Edo University, Iyamho as one of the Ivy League universities in Nigeria and globally.

ACEONDO To Be Changed To Adeyemi Federal University of Education (AFUED)

The Adeyemi Federal University of Education, AFUED, which was sometimes put on hold in August 2015 after the public announcement by the immediate past President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has today received a full sigh of hope for reversal of the status.

Adeyemi Federal University of Education

This hope came alive as the Adeyemi University bill and its establishment, named SB 399, was successfully passed unhindered at the Senate committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund.

In his own remark while declaring the public hearing opened, the Senate president, ably represented by the Deputy chief whip of the house, Senator Francis Alanumeta, a distinguished senator from Edo state, said that the bill, which came along side other bills in the same line, seeking establishments of Federal universities of Kano, Owerri and Zaria,  named SB 397, 398 &400 alongside the bill seeking the upgrading of FederalCollege of Agriculture Kabba to a University of Agriculture, is a bill that the Senate supports as the affected Colleges of Education already have existing facilities both human and materials for a successful take off such that the federal government will have less to spend in this time of economic recession.

Meanwhile, in his address of welcome, the chairman Senate committee on tertiary education, Senator Jubril Barau, assured the audience that all opinions on the matter for discussion will be heard, irrespective of the perspective. He further stated that the minority will always have their say while the majority will in turn have their way.

After the public hearing, it was indeed jubilation galore for the representatives of the four age long colleges of education whose respective bills on the upgrade to federal universities of education did not receive canter memorandum. It is therefore hoped that very soon, the Senate committee report will be ratified by the house and consequently sent to the president for executive approval and sign-in to law. It would be recalled that earlier in 2016, the respective bills have equally sailed through the processes in the green chamber.

Earlier, the presence of Senator Dino Melaye to the conference hall witnessed a loud ovation being one of the sponsors of the bills under consideration and also acknowledged as one the highly profiled senator of the federal republic of Nigeria with the highest number of sponsored bills. While addressing the August gathering, Melaye in his usual dynamic manner, pulled his weight behind the bill and dramatically affirmed that he would even go spiritual, beyond being political in seeing the successful signing of the proposed bill into law.

Leading the delegation of the College to the red chamber is the College Provost, Prof Olukoya Ogen, accompanied by the eminent Council chairman, Prof Nathaniel Ohazurike and Dr. Folorunso Balogun who equally lend their voices in support of the bill through their memorandum. Also present are the representatives of the paramount ruler of Ondo kingdom, the Lisa and Sasere of the kingdom, who both, through their paper presentation affirmed that the reversal of the Adeyemi University which was put on hold will certainly restore the joy of Ondo kingdom.

Also present at the public hearing include the Chairman of COEASU, Dr. Tope Oziegbe, COEASU secretary, comrade Olaolu Olaniyan, comrade Smart Olugbeko,  Members of the COEASU university status committee Dr. Felix Alao, Dr. Michael Ogunboyede, Mr. Joel Edafe, the MIS Assistant Director, Dr. Kehinde Adenegan, representative of SUCCOEN, comrade Jimoh Liasu, Mr. Richard Adegbesan and as well as the NASU & NACEATON, representatives,  comrade Henry Akingbola, comrade Oluwatosin Babatunde and Comrade 'Dele Akinnate

AUN Announces Nationwide CBT Scholarship Test for Aug 5th

Continuing its tradition of attracting the brightest students from throughout Nigeria and Africa, the American University of Nigeria will offer 75 merit scholarships to already accepted candidates in the 2017 fall semester.

American University of Nigeria

The highly competitive computer-based examination for the scholarships will take place in 25 centers across the Federation on August 5.

Assistant VP of Recruitment & Marketing, Julius AyukTabe, said the examination centers have been carefully selected to cover all the nation’s six geopolitical zones. Two scholarship winners will emerge from each of the nation’s 36 states and the Federal Capital territory, and one nationwide.

Last spring’s nationwide winner was 18-year-old Ms. Maryam Habila Usman, a former student of Air Force Girls Secondary School, Jos.  Ms. Usman is from Borno State. She is in the Natural and Environmental Sciences program.

Since its founding in 2003 by former Nigerian Vice President, HE Atiku Abubakar, AUN has been bringing together the best and brightest candidates from all over Nigeria, South Africa, Cameroon, Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda, Ivory Coast, Niger, Chad, Sierra Leone, and other African countries, to study under one roof.  The University seeks to make its American-style liberal education possible for all qualified applicants, regardless of family income.

Each year, AUN sets aside a large fund for scholarships and other forms of financial aid to undergraduate students.  Over the years, it has awarded about 1,000 different scholarships, including close to 300 covering full tuition, board, books, and meals. In the 2016/2017 session alone, AUN dedicated more than ₦102 million to its scholarship program, for both new and returning students. 

Scholarship students are often among the finest of AUN’s graduates.

The University’s Class of 2017 Valedictorian, Ms. Onyinye Immaculata Onuigbo, whose 3.98 CGA (out of 4 points) was the highest in the university’s history, was a scholarship student.  Identified by the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation, Ms. Onuigbo, who hails from Enugu State, is the daughter of an electrician father and nurse mother.  She completed her studies at AUN in its prestigious Petroleum Chemistry program.

The 2016 Valedictorian, Mr. Gregory Tanyi, also a scholarship student, is the son of an Engineering Professor and came to AUN from Cameroon. Tanyi studied Telecoms and Wireless Technology

His idea was considered the best and he was given the start-up capital of ₦200,000 (Two hundred thousand naira).

In addition to the display of diplomatic and oratory skills by the delegates during the conference, the Idea Fair seeks to engage the entrepreneurial, Problem-solving and creative minds of the delegates by requiring them to proffer solutions to issues of both national and international concern through pragmatic, sustainable and entrepreneurial projects from over 1200 youth delegates , with overwhelming potential to contribute to social change, development and sustainability in their respective localities.

David submitted a proposal called  "Project ENERGEM",meaning (Energy Generated from Methane).

It is based on how to  promote sustainable living among individuals in poor and disorientated communities by providing indirect mass employment, sustainable power supply, recycled irrigation water for farmers and bio fertilizers which are all twice cheaper than all their product competitors in the market, using Organic Waste Recycling.

After extensive screening at the preliminary stage by the judges, Project ENERGEM was shortlisted amongst the Top 10 final projects. David was  the only private university student shortlisted in the final round against 9 other University of Lagos [UNILAG] students.

After a seven-minute powerpoint presentation to the students and submission of  3 hard copies of his proposal to the judges, David was declared winner.
He was presented the startup capital grand price which is ₦200,000 (Two hundred thousand naira)  by the Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Lagos courtesy of Oxfam International.

David says he intends to use the start-up capital to set up ENERGEM Mini Power hub in lagos, which will commence with providing people with easy access to power to  charge their phones and other electronic gadgets. He said the project will expand over time.

The Vice Chancellor of Ajayi Crowther university, Rt. Rev. Professor Dapo Asaju, has congratulated David  and expressed happiness that the Entrepreneurship training undertaken by students in the university was yielding fruits. He promised that the university will also reward David for doing it proud.

Landmark University 3rd Convocation Ceremony Class of 2016

The 3rd Convocation ceremony reached the highpoint with the grand finale on Friday 15th July 2016. The University community received an unprecedented crowd of notable dignitaries, the crème of the Nigerian society from all works of life, and parents of the graduands from far and near, who joined the Chancellor and Chair, Board of Regents, Landmark University, Dr David Oyedepo, other Members of the Board of Regents, Management, Faculty, Staff and Students at the University Multipurpose Hall, for the 2016 Release of Pathfinders – The Marvel Set.

Landmark University

The academic journey through the hallowed walls of the University for the professional and personal growth which started 4-5 years ago ended as the grand total of 532 graduating students were launched into the world of works.

The Chancellor, Dr David Oyedepo in his remark did not only recapitulate the University’s mission of raising a generation of great thinkers, solution providers, adept reformers and exemplary leaders in various fields of human endeavours but also reinforced the graduands, with his ideological charge, into the world of unlimited possibilities and opportunities of breaking new grounds.

“We are backwards not because we are black. We are backwards because we are blind. We need to recover our intellectual bravery and generate indigenous solutions to our challenges… Though skin colour may be different, it doesn’t have to be white to be right. We should not allow Race to intimidate us.

Therefore, think possibility; think impact; think footprint on the sand of time; think future; think giving to others; think generations yet unborn; think of making a mark in our individual endeavours and think of using indigenous knowledge to solve our various problems.” He demystified the universality of humanity based on Biblical and scientific proofs, emphasising that all human beings have the same biological compositions regardless of skin colour.

Dr Oyedepo, therefore, urged the graduands and the congregation to connect to the Source of their lives to actualise their purpose for living, saying, “the true worth of any product can truly be known through its maker. No one knows the worth of a machine like its manufacturer. No one knows the worth of a man like his maker.”

Describing the event, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Aize Obayan, said that it was “a rite of passage connecting the graduands to manifestation realms of possibilities and advancements,” while stating that the 532 graduates had been “evidently well groomed and found worthy in learning and character to manifest as the Pathfinders the world is waiting for.”

The event provided a veritable platform for the Vice-Chancellor to restate unequivocally the University’s commitment to its vision of creating visible footprints in Agriculture through educational means for national transformation and rejuvenation. Reinforcing the vision – agrarian revolution on the continent of Africa – for the remarkable achievements of the University since inception is the proprietor base, Living Faith Church Worldwide.

She, therefore, on behalf of the University Management appreciated the huge and continuous provisions and investments from the Proprietor base. She also enjoined the graduating students to endeavour to live a life demonstrative of the University’s core values whose arrowhead is Spirituality and put to practice what they have benefited from the balanced education system of the University which will help them to distinguish themselves in their mission to build the old waste, repair the wasted cities, raise the desolation of many generations, and spearhead the complete redemption of the image of Nigeria and Africa.

While delivering the keynote address on “Mainstreaming Agripreneurship and Food Security: New Frontiers for Africa’s Development Agenda” which he described as an emergent topic for global concern, Professor Placid Njoku, the founding Vice-Chancellor of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, emphasised the need to accelerate and expand the agrarian revolution pursuit of the University with every sense of responsibility and urgency of purpose. He said that Agriculture is the sure bet foundational driver for Africa’s development, and it has recommended itself for full exploration and exploitation to drive the Africa’s development Agenda.

He, therefore, opined that having recognised the myriads of opportunities in agriculture, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of 2015-2030, it is expedient to transform the traditional agriculture burdened with drudgery Agribusiness with the integration of modern technology in order to make it attractive to the huge unemployed young population.

He, therefore, recaptured the event as the release of agripreneurs and challenged the graduands, whom he believed would lead the agrarian revolution in the societal context, to explore the many opportunities the University has opened for them, taking a cue from Benneth Nwosu Chukwuma, one of the graduands from Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department who as a student in the University founded Benny Fish Farm.

Interestingly, the congregation was agog over the presentation of the best graduating student of the Class of 2016, Oyeleke Oyetunji Olumuyiwa of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, College of Science and Engineering having 4.90 Cumulative Grade Point Average and the other 50 graduates in the First-Class Division. These 51 exceptional graduates filed out with gusto to receive the heartfelt congratulatory handshakes from the Chancellor. However, 233 made Second-Class Upper Division, 229 made Second-Class Lower Division, and only 19 were in the Third-Class Division.

Notable personalities in attendance were the Honourable High Commissioner of the Republic of South Africa to Nigeria, Ambassador Lulu Louis Mnguni, the Distinguished Guest Lecturer of the 3rd Convocation, Dr Brylyne Chitsunge – CEO, Elpasso Farms, South Africa, representative of the National Secretary, NUC, Dr Abiodun Saliu, Members of the Board of Regents, Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, Deputy Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, Directors of Government and Private Institutes, Traditional Rulers led by the host Royal Highness, Olomu of Omu-Aran, Oba Charles Ibitoye, and gentlemen of the press.

Immediately after the Convocation procession in reverse order, led by the Chancellor, the guests converged on the Hall 3 of the University Cafeteria for a sumptuous treat.

A large amount of the guests, in rendering their congratulatory and goodwill messages, lavished encomium on the University’s milestone achievements.

The prayer on the lips of all and sundry was that the Class of 2016 Pathfinders would go out indeed as marvels to their world in Jesus Mighty Name.

No directive on Yoruba language in schools - LASG

The Lagos State Government through the Ministry of Education has debunked reports trending on the social media in respect of a purported directive issued to Schools inLagos State to conduct Assembly in the Yoruba language on Thursdays.
No directive on Yoruba language in schools - LASG

A press release issued by the Ministry stated that “the reports trending on social media that the government has directed that teaching and learning of Yoruba are now compulsory from Primary to Senior Secondary Schools (SS.III) as from next session is false and unfounded”.

The statement said the clarification became necessary following stories on the social media which have been generating reactions and are capable of misleading the pupils, students, education stakeholders and the general public.

The Education Ministry reassured the public that Lagos State Government does not implement policies without far-reaching consultations and communication with relevant stakeholders and therefore enjoined members of the public to disregard such stories trending on social media platforms

FUTO ICT Center Fire Outbreak Reports

Today, the 30th day of June, 2017 has turned into another "Black Friday" at the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) as the Information & Communication Technology Center Went Ablaze.

The Fire Outburst started at about 8:05am this morning from Computer Laboratory on the extreme right hand side of the building.

FUTO ICT Center Fire Outbreak Reports

One of the Security men on duty told me this;
"When i came for work this morning around 7:30am there was Electric Power So I decided to charge my phone because I had a flat battery. Suddenly the Electric Power Supply was disrupted and was restored within 6 minutes.

At this time, I started perceiving the smell of smoke but was still confused where the odour must be coming from, an idea came to my head to go outside and check then I went outside and checked. I saw massive smoke emanating from the Zinc covering the right hand side of the building, still confused I had to run upstairs to check the cause, then most of the ICT workers weren't yet available in their various offices so the building was kind of empty.

My God I noticed fire coming out from a Junction box then I concluded it's Electric Apparatus Malfunction.

I started calling for help, there was no Fire Extinguisher available for me to use, enough water wasn't even in the Gee Pee Tank then. The next thing I noticed was explosion in the Lab upstairs that was how the fire started spreading.

As the fire continued burning, then some of the workers has arrived and everyone joined hands to carry out all working equipment of the ICT center including the Students.

Some top Officials came to help too both from the ICT and the Senate, the Fire Service Commission was contacted immediately because the fire got out of control.

The Fire Service Commission arrived around 9:10am and immediately they started putting off the fire and within 25 minutes, the Fire was Quenched!!".

So far Over 130 Desktop Computers with their UPS Machine, Stabilizer, and Air Conditioner System etc was destroyed by the fire.

We Suggest the School Management to send Technical Experts to the Information and Communication Technology Center to detect the main source of the fire outbreak and to enlist measures to prevent it from occurring again.

More Details Shortly.
