LASTEST UPDATE: US University finally admits owing Nigeria $202,000

Alabama State University (ASU) in the United States of America has reportedly admitted owing the Nigerian government $202,000, being part of the money meant for Nigerian students on scholarship, but mishandled by the university. 

The Alabama News had reported that the Nigerian government had joined the suit filed by 36 students of the country against the ASU two years ago alleging that the institution misused or mishandled about $800,000 meant for them. 

The report also said that the university admitted on Tuesday, February 27, that it was indeed owing the Nigerians some money. 

The agreement regarding the education of the Nigerian students dates back to 2013 and has always been between the government of Nigeria and Alabama State University, not the individual students.

"Since the initiation of the agreement, ASU has adhered to and complied with every instruction and direction given to the University by the Nigerian government regarding that agreement,” said Kenneth L Thomas, general counsel for Alabama State University. 

The institution reportedly advised Nigeria through several letters that as a result of its accounting over the last four years, the government is entitled to a $202,009.50 credit, which was deposited last year into a trust account at the federal courthouse in Montgomery, Ala.

The university has yet to receive a response from the Nigerian government regarding the credit. 

But the report said the institution confirmation came late. It quotes one of the students, Success Jumbo, as saying he was denied many things including student health insurance and just getting textbooks. 

“My college experience has been ruined, because I wasn’t allowed to do things that every other college student is doing. 

“We went as far as asking our government to give us authorization for them to release the funds to us, which they did. On several occasions, they wrote two letters, which ASU bluntly declined. 

Rural Teacher goes the extra mile to Teach IT without a Computer

Computer teacher draws Microsoft Word layout on a blackboard to teach students 

He uses coloured chalk to label and describe the layout to students due to lack of computers 

A picture posted on social media shows a teacher painstakingly recreating and labelling the layout of Microsoft Word on a blackboard using only coloured chalk. 

This was due to a lack of facilities in the school to provide the pupils with the necessary equipment to conduct the lesson.With teachers in other countries complaining that they cannot teach without books, this teacher goes to show that where there is a will, there is a way. 

33-year-old teacher Richard Appiah Akoto is the information and communication technology teacher at Betenase M/A Junior High School in the town of Sekyedomase, Ghana. 

Due to the fact that his school has no computer, Akoto draws the Microsoft Word layout on a blackboard to teach students. He labels it with coloured chalks and describes it to the students. 

Report stated that teaching and learning under these conditions seems almost impossible but it is a sad reality which faces many pupils and teachers around the world.

After the post went viral, Mircosoft Africa promised to equip the school with devices needed for the students' computer education. 

Aggrieved OAU Non-Teaching Staff stop JAMB Mock Exam from holding


The striking non-teaching staff of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, under the aegis of Joint Action Committee, on Monday disrupted the mock examination that was scheduled to take place at the university.
The examination is part of that organised nationwide by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB.
The workers stormed the ICT centre of the institution, pulling the canopies erected for the purpose of the examination down. This caused the candidates already seated to run.
According to the Chairman of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, Ademola Oketunde, the disruption came up as a result of an infuriating statement credited to the university management.
“The exam must not hold,” he said. “We are ready to lay our lives for this struggle. What enraged us was the VC saying he will bring in the police to fight us.”
On arrival at the scene, the police area commander, Funsho Adegboye, addressed the angry workers and pleaded with them to show their grievances within the ambits of the law.
“We’ve been in dialogue with the CSO, the VC and other stakeholders. Nobody is happy with your plight, even the vice chancellor. The reason why I am here with my men is for peace. Let us carry out this struggle within the ambits of the law,” he pleaded.
Speaking later with journalists, Mr Oketunde said the main purpose for the total shut down was for the world to know that things are not in a good state in Nigerian universities.
He said, “We are shutting down even water. I live in staff quarters and if water becomes difficult to get, I will dig well. I’m from the village. We are fighting for our legitimate right and we won’t stop until we get to a logical conclusion. If they write the exam in the midnight, we will wake up to stop them. Government and universities management are stage managing reports in newspapers saying things are normal whereas, things are not.
“We are not only fighting injustice alone but also calling the government to prosecute all the people that are involved. The money paid was paid without passing through bursary and audit. It is a total fraud. Even if they give us what we asked for tomorrow, we are going to write a petition against the procedure. If you believe in Nigeria without fighting corruption, we won’t get anywhere and that is why here JAC in OAU is passionate about reducing corruption to the barest minimum.”

UPDATE: Kano State Scholarship Board: Payment in 2018

Good news! Kano state scholarship board payment is about to kick off! Are you a Kano state indigene? Have you been studying in Nigerian higher education institutions from 2011 to 2015? Then this important news is for you.

At the beginning of January 2018, the Kano state government began to make a three hundred million Naira payment. It’s a scholarship for students of different universities and other higher education institutions in Nigeria. The scholarship benefits whould be paid to almost twenty-four thousand students. 

Kano state scholarship board begins paying scholarships debt The State Scholarship Board’s Executive Secretary, Professor Fatima Umar notified the public about the payment at the information meeting with journalists in Kano. 

The professor stated that mentioned payment is part of a debt left by the administration of previous years. The students did not receive scholarship benefits from 2011 to 2015.

Students of a high school

Fatima Umar announced that payment is for 2013–2014 academic session. She said that Kano state scholarship board had already paid the overdue stipend in the amount of three hundred and sixty million Naira for 2012–2013. Twenty-four thousand and nine hundred one students got their money. Based on her words, the payment was made to the Kano state natives in fifty-five higher education institutions countrywide. 

The professor marked that Nigerian domestic students had not been receiving the stipend from 2011 to 2015. The administration of the previous years didn’t pay throughout its term. Such actions caused an enormous debt for the present KSSB administration. 

Fatima Umar underlined that a student might not receive the payment for the following reasons: 

1. A student has indicated an invalid account number; 

2. A student didn’t provide the Bank Verification Number; 

3. The account was inactive. 

We advise you to double check everything and take steps to avoid misunderstandings with the payment. We hope this information was helpful to you.

Suicide is an act or instance of taking one’s own life intentionally or voluntarily. Suicide can also be seen as a senseless act to those who wish to live, but, death as an option to one's problems makes sense to the suicidal person. The thought of suicide occurs most often when a person feels they have run out of solutions to problems that seem inescapable, intolerably painful, and never-ending.

The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 1 million people die each year from suicide. What drives so many individuals to take their own lives? To those not in the grips of suicidal depression and despair, it's difficult to understand what drives so many individuals to take their own lives. But a suicidal person is in so much pain that he or she can see no other option.
Suicide is a desperate attempt to escape suffering that has become unbearable. Blinded by feelings of self-loathing, hopelessness, and isolation, a suicidal person can't see any way of finding relief except through death. But despite their desire for the pain to stop, most suicidal people are deeply conflicted about ending their own lives. They wish there was an alternative to suicide, but they just can't see one.


 It may be a physical or mental illness that deteriorates the body or mind. Or, it may result from the death or suicide of a loved one.  Perhaps, it's a downward spiral from money woes and a devastating change in lifestyle. For some, public disgrace or humilation makes it intolerable to go on living; while, for others, the intolerable condition may result from the post-trumatic stress of military combat, homicide, rape, or imprisonment.

It doesn't matter how we'd respond, or how severe the circumstances seem to us, suicidal people cannot love life or find meaning in it, in their deteriorated mental state. Nonetheless, it's important for us to know that they do not really want to die; they just want a way out from their suffering. Suicide seems like the only way out.
No matter the situation that brings a person to contemplate death, there's one thing that suicidal people share in common; they cannot love life, right now. They have experienced a basic and comprehensive breakdown in their values, way of living, self-esteem, and ability to make sense of life and to give it meaning that restores their hope and the will to live.


   Talking about suicide – Any talk about suicide, dying, or self-harm, such as "I wish I hadn't been born," "If I see you again..." and "I'd be better off dead." Are more prompt to committing suicide.
·         Seeking out lethal means – Seeking access to guns, pills, knives, or other objects that could be used in a suicide attempt.
·         Preoccupation with death – Unusual focus on death, dying, or violence. Writing poems or stories about death.
·         No hope for the future – Feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and being trapped ("There's no way out").Belief that things will never get better or change.
·         Self-loathing, self-hatred – Feelings of worthlessness, guilt, shame, and self-hatred. Feeling like a burden ("Everyone would be better off without me").
·         Saying goodbye – Unusual or unexpected visits or calls to family and friends. Saying goodbye to people as if they won't be seen again.
·         Withdrawing from others – Withdrawing from friends and family. Increasing social isolation. Desire to be left alone.
·         Self-destructive behavior – Increased alcohol or drug use, reckless driving, unsafe sex. Taking unnecessary risks as if they have a "death wish."
·         Sudden sense of calm – A sudden sense of calm and happiness after being extremely depressed can mean that the person has made a decision to attempt suicide.

1. Spread hope: In ways that are sincere and meaningful, find ways to focus on the idea that suffering is temporary and that things will get better. Hope comes from the belief that despair is not permanent.
2. Talk about suicide: If you are having thoughts of suicide, tell someone. The more you talk about it to other people, the more likely you are to find help and support. Tell family members, pastors, friends, co-workers, and mental health professionals. And if you know of someone who is feeling suicidal, talk about it. Help them to monitor their thoughts, checking for warning signs that the person might be preparing to take action. 
3. Learn the warning signs: People who are at greatest risk for killing themselves exhibit the following signs: Killing themselves, Having no reason to live, Being a burden to others, Feeling trapped, Unbearable pain. And if a person’s behaviors change: Increased use of alcohol or drugs. Looking for a way to kill themselves, such as searching online for materials or means, etc. Also If a person’s mood changes due to depression, Loss of interest, Rage, Irritability, Humiliation, and  anxiety.
4. Know where to go: All of us need to know the local, regional and national resources that offer prevention, education, and support services for mental health. Know who your local mental health care professionals are in your neighborhood.
5. Be an advocate: Talk to your pastors, teachers, first responders, mental health providers, and city council about how your local community is working to prevent suicide. Is there training for school teachers to look for warning signs? Are there enough mental health service providers that are accessible and affordable to provide care before a crisis erupts? 
6. Listen and then listen some more: Pay close attention to how people express themselves. Listen for ways that people communicate their emotional state. If you think a person might be considering self-harm, ask them. And listen to what they say. Listen to what they say and to what they don’t say.
7. Sew a safety net: I don’t sew (just ask my grandma). But I do know how to ensure my loved ones who are at high risk for killing themselves have a safety net. We all need a safety net, people and a plan in place to protect us and keep us safe. A safety net means a clear way of being connected to others who care. It’s often informal, but it can be recorded in a contract, promising that if thoughts of self-harm persist, then others will be notified. My brother promises to call his psychiatrist, and to go to the hospital if he is feeling at risk of killing himself. 
8. Show Compassion: People who attempt suicide, the survivors of suicide and their loved ones, and for those who have experienced the death of a loved one to suicide are in great need of compassion. There is absolutely no place for judgment or blame, especially from religious communities. Suicide is a tragedy that leaves a terrible amount of suffering in its path. Anger, shock, grief, disbelief, sorrow, and fear can all be part of the mixture of emotional responses to a suicide or attempt. Given the devastating nature of suicide and the sense of helplessness associated with it, compassion must be demonstrated in order to facilitate healing.

10. See it everywhere: Suicide gets its power from being invisible, when we aren’t looking for it, we don’t see it. We assume it could never happen to the straight-A-student athlete, or the pastor, or the lawyer. The stigma and shame around mental illness in all communities is real, but especially in communities of color. We need to see suicide everywhere because no one is immune. Suicide impacts every race, religion, gender, age, income and educational level, culture, nationality, ethnicity and sexual orientation. 
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in our country. Once we acknowledge its presence in our communities, we can work together on prevention

Jubilation as Yobe Governor offers Automatic Employment to 38 First Class Students

Governor Gaidam of Yobe state gave employment to 38 first class graduates of Yobe state university.

Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, the Yobe state governor, on Saturday, February 24, offered automatic employment to 38 graduates of the state university who graduated with the first class degree. 

Reports stated that the governor announced this at the maiden convocation ceremony of the university, which was held in Damaturu.

It was stated that a total of 2,290 students from five academic sets beginning from 2012/2013 to 2016/2017, received various degrees and diploma certificates from the institution. 

Governor Gaidam, who is the visitor to the university, was also conferred with an honorary doctorate degree of letters at the convocation ceremony. 

The governor said his administration will continue to help the university grow. 

He said: “We are optimistic that with sustained efforts and commitment, we will realize our aim of making the university a living testimony of the humble contributions of our administration to the educational advancement of our state and the progress of man in the struggle against ignorance, prejudice, poverty and disease.” 

He further stated that his administration has continued to prioritise education by making big budgetary allocations to the sector. 

“We have been implementing free education policy aimed at improving access, quality, equity and gender balancing by devoting over 26% of our budgetary allocation in 2017 and 2018 to the education sector in keeping with the UNESCO recommendations. 

"I would like to state that this university has recorded tremendous growth in leaps and bounds since its full establishment in 2009. This growth is visible in terms of infrastructural expansion, human capital development as well as in the academic sphere of teaching, learning and research which has continued to date. 

In the end, he called on universities in the country to join in the campaign of national rebirth to revolutionize the minds of citizens against all forms of crimes and vices. 

He also noted that education must be for a purpose far greater than obtaining degrees or certificate but to prepare the university graduates morally and economically. 

Gaidam said: “I urge the university to make entrepreneurship training compulsory so that any graduate of Yobe State University can be self-reliant without even getting any government employment. The task will be made easier as we already have a fully established centre for Entrepreneurship Development.” 

In his remark, the vice chancellor of the university, Professor Yakubu Mukhtar, said the institution has made great strides in the last eleven years. 

In a previous reports, it is been stated that Chinese ambassador in Nigeria, Dr Zhou Pingjian, on Thursday, February 8, said that his country had decided to award a scholarship to 47 students of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, who graduated with first class. 

Pingjian said the scholarship was tagged ‘October 1 Scholarship for China-Nigeria Friendship’ as both countries got their independence on October 1. Pingjian also said that China is impressed with the interest shown by ABU in partnering with Chinese universities.

The board, however, stated that eye glasses worn by candidates on medical grounds would be thoroughly scrutinised by invigilators to ensure they were not for ulterior motives.

Kubwa Students died from Meningitis, not Food Poisoning - FCT Administration

The Federal Capital Territory Administration has stated that contrary to reports, the three deceased students of the Local Education Authority Primary School, Kubwa, Abuja, did not die from food poisoning. 

According to Punch, the FCTA stated that the actual cause of death was cerebrospinal meningitis.

Report stated that the information was disclosed by Abubakar Sani, special assistant to the FCT minister on media, who reportedly quoted the director of public health, Dr Humphrey Okoronkwo, as stating that the pupils died of meningitis. 

In an SMS, Sani stated: “The FCT director of public health, Dr Humphrey Okoronkwo, says three pupils in Kubwa school died of suspected cases of cerebrospinal meningitis, not food poisoning.” 

The deceased students reportedly died after consuming biscuits shared by a classmate; and two others who partook of the snack were reportedly hospitalized at the Kubwa General Hospital. The school authorities reportedly quizzed the student who shared the biscuits and her mother afterwards. 

A teacher stated: “The girl and her mother have been invited. They met with the school authorities and they were not indicted in any way. The school is carrying out its own investigations. The pupils that were claimed to have died don’t even have their names in our register. We don’t believe the biscuit theory because a lot of people ate the biscuits.” 

On a visit to the hospital, a worker also lamented over the fact that the deceased pupils were buried without carrying out an autopsy to ascertain the cause of death. 

The worker reportedly stated: “Why will they bury some children without ascertaining what killed them? It is not proper. The solution may be to have all the children immunised. How can anyone say they ate biscuits and died when there is no medical test to confirm this?” 

A previous report stated that the police in the Federal Capital Territory confirmed the death of two pupils of the Local Education Authority (LEA), Kubwa II school, after eating biscuits at a party. 

On Tuesday, February 20, the two pupils, Nehemiah Yahaya and Yahaya Garba, 14-years-old, all of primary 5 and 4, reportedly died after eating biscuits at a party allegedly organised by unknown persons. 

The spokesman of the command, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, stated that no arrest had been made as investigation was ongoing. He said that the case would be transferred to the command’s Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation.

Muslim Students’ Group attacks Buhari over University Workers’ Strike


The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) has decried the alleged inaction of the federal government on the nationwide strike of non-teaching staff of universities.
 The Non-Academic Staff Union, Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities and National Association of Academic Technologists, cooperating under the aegis of the Joint Action Committee, JAC, have been on strike since the beginning of December.‎
This was after the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, failed to resolve their grievances over the sharing ratio of  N23 billion released by the federal government to the universities as academic earned allowances.
The JAC had written Mr. Adamu a week before they embarked on the strike on December 4, warning of industrial action over the 89:11 ratio for sharing the allowances in favour of members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
But the minister only acknowledged their letter and called them for a meeting mid-December, after the strike had begun.
In a statement by its president, Saheed Ashafa, on Thursday, the MSSN accused government of not paying attention to the striking workers. 
“The presidency is not giving priority to the strike action and it is sending a bad perception about this administration,” said the MSSN.
 “In the first place, the strike is avoidable and needless. It is unpalatable to the hearing that a country like Nigeria still pays low attention to workers’ welfare.
“The poor attention and undue silence of the Federal Government over the ongoing strike embarked upon by members of NASU, SSANU and NAAT are condemnable and highly demoralizing.
“It is understandable that children of majority of those leading the education agencies and ministries that should engage the striking workers are studying abroad, but that should not mean that the sons and daughters of the Nigerian masses should be made to suffer for developing interest in education”
“As we speak, some of our universities smell and stink, others have their libraries, health centres, powerhouses and other strategic facilities shut down. Students now live on university campuses like they are in the jungle. 
“This is pathetic and must be urgently addressed. We will not get the best from our workers if we continue to treat them like slaves; their commitment to work will be vacuous. Apart from having meetings with the striking workers, the generality of Nigerians deserves to know what the plans of the FG are in resolving this crisis and preventing subsequent ones.”
The MSSN, however, appealed to the workers to consider the plight of the students caught in the industrial dispute. 
“It appears that the workers are fighting for their rights, but they should always remember that the students affected are their children. We plead with them not to allow the agitation for their rights to affect the whole essence of education in the country.”
The strike has led to disruption of vital services, such as library, laboratory, healthcare, water and electricity supplies, normally provided by the JAC members in Nigerian Universities.
