Never stop trying until you succeed. This is a popular saying often used to encourage people never to give up on their dreams no matter the situation. This is the same belief a Nigerian man identified as Simon Godwin Idoko practiced until his dreams came true. Graduating with a first class, his story is not the normal stories you hear. The 26-year-old first class graduate of applied chemistry shared his story on how he conquered his setbacks to become one of the best students in his department. According to the native of Udaburu Owukpa, Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State, his initial dream was to become a medical doctor or a pharmacist was frustrated after he sat for UTME five times without success. Not discouraged by the challenges, he decided to apply for a different science-related course and was offered to study Applied Chemistry at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto where he graduated with a first class, garnering a total of 4.75 CGP he attributed his success to God. He had this to say: “I left secondary school in 2007 from Wesley High School, Otukpo where I was awarded the overall best in Mathematics. I took UTME six times before I got admission to study Applied Chemistry. I was initially applying for Medicine and Surgery due to the advice from different people." I have never scored below 200 in UTME and the most disappointing time during the period of struggling to get admission was when I scored 264 in UTME and 68 in Post UTME in 2012 but I was not offered admission to study any course. The only course I was offered throughout the period of the six years was the course that I studied (Applied Chemistry). It was very frustrating then.” On how he was able to achieve the feat despite facing admission challenges for six years, Idoko said, “I was able to achieve the feat through continuous prayer, hard work and the zeal to always be the best I can be. The secret behind my success emanated from the fact that as the first son of my father, I wanted to set a standard to which my younger ones can emulate.”

A Magistrate Court sitting in Ekpoma, Edo state has sentenced two former students of Ambrose Ali University over unlawful detention of a lecturer of the institution. The court in its ruling said that the action by the students - Judith Ivie Okosun and Juliet Obehi Okosun  affected the career of the former lecturer of the university. Judith and Juliet were arraigned before the chief magistrate, Matilda Iluobe, in August 2012 on eight count charges bordering on alleged conspiracy, stealing, unlawful detention and frivolous petition. In 2010, the university's former lecturer, Peter Otubu was captured in a video being stripped by Judith in a female hostel located near the university at Ekpoma. Judith in the video accused Otubu, a former lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of allegedly attempting to sleep with her in exchange for a pass mark in a course. In the video, Otubu was also compelled to sign a N100,000 cheque in favour of Judith Okosun to secure his release………However delivering her judgement, Iluobe said that Juliet had admitted in her evidence before the court that she had the key to the apartment where Judith unlawfully assaulted Otubu. Iluobe slammed a one and two years’ imprisonment respectively with an option of N20,000 fine on the duo. She also expressed her displeasure over the conduct of the former lecturer for going to the room of his students. Speaking after the court's judgement, Otubu said: "The principal suspect, Ivie Okosun, and her sister, Juliet have been jailed. Whether they were given an option of fine or not. I am satisfied, as the judgment has proved my innocence." To correct the erroneous impression, I was never dismissed from AAU, my appointment was terminated due to the video that was posted on the internet," the former Ambrose Ali University lecturer added. Monica Osagie said she is ready to face the panel established to investigate the matter between her and a lecturer in the institution, Professor Richard Akindele. Osagie's through her proxy, Abiola Akiyode-Afolabu - said the university did not at any point invite her to face the panel.

The police force in Plateau has arrested Stephen Gyang, a commercial motorcycle rider for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Alice Samuel, and burying her remains in a makeshift grave. Gyang reportedly killed his lover for forcing her pregnancy on him. The 20-year-old Junior Secondary School two (JSS 2) dropout confessed that Alice was moved by her mother to name him as being responsible for the pregnancy that was why he killed her, The ugly incident took place in Tahoss village, in the Riyom local government area of the state. Undie Adie, the state commissioner of police, said it was a case of “culpable homicide”. He further said that the suspect had confessed to the crime and would soon be arraigned. Gyang revealed that he reported the development to his elder brother because he lost his peace after the act. He remarked: “Yes, Alice Samuel was my girlfriend and we had been together for some time now. I killed her because of the pregnancy. "After saying the pregnancy was not for me, she recanted and said it was mine; that was why I killed her. I decided to bury her that night in a shallow grave that was to be used either for a pit toilet or well. “After the incident, the spirit of Alice Samuel did not leave me; she started disturbing me and I had to report to my brother who took the matter to my father. My father thereafter reported my predicament to the village chief.” His friend and accomplice, 20-year-old Kelly James, who was an eyewitness, said that his plea to Gyang not to kill the victim was to no avail. He alleged that Gyang threatened to kill him if he did not assist him in the crime. James stated: “I had been seeing him and the girl together for over three years now. He is my friend and the two of us are commercial motorcyclists. On that particular day, I had gone to see his girlfriend, who sold palm wine. "After taking palm wine at her shop, I went to my friend’s house. When I discovered that he was not at home, I picked the house key where he usually kept it, opened the door and slept off in his room. “When he returned home at night, he was not happy that I entered his house without informing him of my visit. While I was asleep, I heard a knock on the window and he informed me it was his girlfriend, Alice. “When I asked him what brought the girl by that time of the night, he said she came to see him. He opened the back door for her and they started having a discussion behind the curtains. “He called me outside that the girl had implicated him over a pregnancy which did not belong to him. He insisted that the girl’s mother asked her to do so. I told him that since he had accepted the pregnancy and the case was already in the palace of the village chief, he should allow her to be with her parents for now. “But he said no, that he was going to deal with the girl by killing her. I advised him against it, warning that if he killed Alice, we would not be friends again. But he refused. “I left him outside and went into the room. I started trembling on the bed as I feared the worst. He was talking to the girl and I thought he had decided against killing her. “Suddenly, I heard the sound of two legs on the ground, which suggested that she was struggling for life. I stood up and saw that he held the girl’s neck to the wall; he had strangled her and her eyes were already white. As I told him to leave the girl, he threatened to kill me if I did not assist him to cover up.

Australian educators warned that using digital devices at night affects the sleeping habits of students and damages their mental health. The trend is causing children to act like “device vampires” with disrupted sleep cycles that see them sleep through much of the school day. Sarah Blunden, director of the Australian Centre for Education in Sleep, said that the blue light emitted by mobile devices delays the release of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep, disrupting the body’s circadian rhythms, which regulate sleep cycles. She said: “because our circadian clock does have a distance to run, because we go to sleep later, we are alert later.”If you have a disrupted circadian clock, one that is delayed, but also one that is different day to day, you are more likely to have an emotional liability, that is, a much more volatile emotional state. You’re more likely to be depressed or have waves of depression or anxiety. Schools and parents needed to coordinate to ensure children were using technology appropriately. She added: “Schools have a huge role to play in teaching children about creating balance in their life. There are apps that parents can put on their own phone that don’t restrict children from accessing technology, but allow parents to know what apps their children are accessing, so parents can have a conversation with their kids. There’s a real opportunity for parents to educate children there."

Image result for picture of how to pay school from nigeria to abroad

Lots of smart Nigerian students are trying their luck abroad in the biggest universities in Africa and other countries. They go there either for undergraduate or postgraduate programs, hoping to achieve brilliant education and increase their chance of finding decent jobs. However, they can meet a certain problem on their way to successful future, and this is paying school fees abroad from Nigeria. Sometimes it can be problematic to send money abroad from Nigeria. However, there are a few means to pay for the school tuition. According to CBN (The Central Bank of Nigeria), money can still be sent abroad to pay for school fees and medical bills. Many Nigerian people believe that it is impossible, but this is a common misconception. International money transfer in Nigeria for schooling is still possible. We will provide you with a few common ways to send money abroad if you are a student.
Paying through CBN Form A
 The first way is to pay directly using Central Bank of Nigeria’s services. Here are the primary instructions on how to do it without issues: First of all, you should visit one of the following Nigerian banks: Zenith Bank, Diamond Bank, First Bank of Nigeria, Stanbic IBTC, Guaranty Trust Bank, or Fidelity Bank. Use their customer care service. It is even better if you have a bank account at one of these banks. You should have the banking details of the school that you want to pay for with you. Once you are at the bank, tell the bank customer service staff that you would like to pay for the school fees abroad with the help of Form A. You will be sent to the according desk, where they will give you the Form A to sign and fill. While filling in the form, you should make sure that you are doing it correctly. If something is unclear, you are recommended to clarify these questions. After you have filled the form and documented it, the bank will communicate with you about the payment details. The last step will be scanning the receipt that you have got as a result of the payment, and e-mailing this receipt to the school abroad. The school will inform you once they have received the payment. Sometimes, if you have no account at any of these banks, you can try the alternative way of paying for your school tuition. First of all, visit CBN office, after you have been authenticated by CBN, they will give you an exchange rate waiver, which you can use later for paying for your fees. When you have been given the waiver, go to your bank with the waiver, then, follow the steps: Explain that your purpose is to pay for tuition fees in the school abroad, and give the exchange rate waiver to them. They will give you the Form A, which you will have to fill in and sign. Then, the procedure will take the same course as above. Keep in mind that it can take up to two months to make payment in Guarantee Trust Bank, so start making plans beforehand. If you are paying through Stanbic IBTC, they can take up to 72 hours to make the payment for tuition fee. In case you are making your payment in First Bank of Nigeria, it will most likely take 48 hours. You should always start at least three months before your deadline for paying school fees, as it will be helpful to have some time in advance.
There is also another option to pay school fees abroad from Nigeria, which is paying through the domiciliary account. For that, you will need to open this type of account for yourself or use the one from someone you know.
Once you have opened the account with your bank, you will need to fund it with the money that you are required to pay for tuition. Preferably, load a little more money than you will be paying. To fund your account, you can use the foreign exchange company, which will offer a better exchange rate than the black market. Show your bank your admission letter. You will be given form A, where you can fill in the bank details of the university, your student name, ID number, and other information. Once again, here is a reminder that your domiciliary account should contain more than the amount of money you need for your fees, because quite often there are some bank charges – like transfer charge, offshore charges, and the correspondence bank fee.
Paying for tuition through agents There is also an alternate way to pay for your school tuition through the local and international agents, who offer their services to the students getting their education abroad. However, you need to choose only those who you fully trust, because there are some cases of fraud among them. Either way, the first two ways are more trustworthy.

The Provost of the school, Mrs. Aisha Maikudi, disclosed today, this She said the students were withdrawn because they were not academically competent to cope with the academic and professional standard of the institution.Maikudi however noted that the action did not go down well with some parents and guardians as they claimed that their wards finished from the best schools in the country.“We want parents, guardians and the general public to understand that we cannot cope with incompetence in the midwifery profession as that will be catastrophic.“Many a time they bombard us with different questions on why should we admit students and withdraw them within a short time.“It is a situation we cannot help, it is better that we keep complaining that we do not have midwives than to have midwives that do not know their jobs. “Some of them that were withdrawn could not even read temperature how can we keep such students, that would be against the ethics of midwifery profession and humanity will not forgive us.“We want the general public to understand that midwifery school is a professional training institution and we are dealing with lives.“Pregnant women can be carrying multiple pregnancies, any mistake will be multiple tragedy.“That is why we will not compromise in our standard by keeping students that are not competent,’’ she said. The provost said that the internal screening of students by withdrawing the incompetent ones had helped the school in achieving a success rate of 98 and 100 per cent, respectively. “As I speak with you 51 students that were presented for the external examination 50 passed, and 21 students that were also presented for the same examination all passed. She however said that the measure they were taking to withdraw incompetent students had helped a lot in charting a better part for the students, school and the state. According to her, mass failure at the external examination will have been catastrophic for the school and the state but for the internal screening via the internal examination.
        Maikudi therefore called on parents and guardians to believe in the measure they were taking as they had to go by standard via examination to sanitize the system. She also urged parents and guardians to encourage their children and wards not to compromise their studies, saying that their bright future lies in education.

The university authorities said a committee would be set up to critically study the audio clip of the indicting telephone conversation, which went viral on Monday, April 9, to ascertain the truth and detail of the development. In the four-minute audio clip, the professor was heard demanding gratification from a student who is yet to be unidentified five times before he could upgrade her 33 marks to pass However, the student rejected the overtures on the grounds that the number of the romp did not commensurate with the pass mark the lecturer was willing to give her. Richard Akindele was not aware that the student was recording the phone call conversation when he requested to sleep with her five times. In the audio recordings, the professor disclosed that the young lady scored 33 and if she was not ready to give in to his demands, she would retake his course.

The overall literacy rate in Nigeria is quite drastic. For the last decade, there are not enough changes that could provide the improvement in the education sphere of Nigeria. However, Nigeria moves to the right direction, and experts offer information that literacy rate keeps growing. Still, with better reforms and more investments, the process of overall education can be speeded up by several times! 

Literacy rate in Nigeria by states in Nigeria

Let’s be clear and understand the whole situation with the literacy rate in Nigeria! The literate population is defined as people who are older than 15 and can read and write. Education is a vital part of every country, and Nigeria does not provide great results in comparison to other world countries. Still, experts acknowledge that Nigeria is one of the greatest countries in Africa in terms of education.
Youth literacy rate: English Language. A lot of disputes are centered on the idea of the performance in English tests. According to the national survey, the overall literacy rate in the English language amongst young people is 76.3%. There are also some disputes in data depending on the place of residence or gender. The greatest result in English was provided in Abia State, which is around 95.6%. The lowest result is monitored in Sokoto which is 33.1%. If we compare the urban and rural literacy rate for Nigeria, then we achieve numbers 90% and 69% respectively. Moreover, the males show higher literacy rate than female – 81 and 71.7% respectively.
Youth literacy rate: Any Language The literacy rate in the Nigerian States by any language shows much greater results. According to the survey, the youth literacy rate in any language provides 85.6% in results. The urban areas show the literacy rate of 94.3% while the rural areas provided only 89.4%. The male literacy rate shows 89.4% while the female provides only 81.6%.  The best states that provided the highest literacy rates are Abia and Lagos – 96.6% and 96.5% respectively.
Adult and Youth literacy rate. Let’s define who the youth are and who adults are. The youth population can be defined as the people who are in the age category from 15 to 24 included. The adult population can be defined as the people who are 25 years old and older.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday, April 8, urges universities to return to their original mandates in producing specialized manpower for the nation’s industrial need, The Nation reports. The president gave the directive at the 30th convocation of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO). Buhari, who was the visitor to the ceremony, and was represented by the minister of state for education, Prof Anthony Anwuka, lamented that most of the universities set up for training specialized manpower have veered off from their original mandate. He stated: “Universities of Technology were deliberate creations of the federal government to promote science and technology development in Nigeria. “They are expected to champion skills dissemination and promotion of indigent technologies with a view to producing graduates who would be self-reliant and entrepreneurial.” He continued: “However, over the years, some of these specialized universities veered off their original mandate and have concentrated on producing graduates that are skill deficient and largely dependent on the few existing white collar jobs. “It is against this backdrop that the federal government has mandated all specialized universities to return to their original mandates for which they were established.” Buhari opined that this would go a long way in bridging the skills gap as “graduates of these institutions would be self-reliant upon graduation and contribute to the growth of our economy.” The president hailed FUTO’s management for their commitment to producing quality manpower for the nation’s industrial sector, as he stated that the institution is one of the few which have remained focused on the core mandate of its establishment.

The authority of the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan have ordered its students to vacate their hostel following their protest against what they described as unfair introduction of a professional training fee by the school. The students alleged that the fee, together with an increase in accommodation levy, was capable of making some of them abandon their medical programme. They said the authority recently introduced the professional fee ranging from N75,000 to N100,000 per student, while accommodation fee in the hostel was raised to N40,000 per student. The institution’s senate had approved an increase in various fees paid by the students while new levies were introduced. Students in the school will now pay between N30, 000 and N40, 000 as accommodation fee per bed space as opposed to the former N14, 000. At the Alexander Brown Hall, UCH, Ibadan, medical students were seen leaving the hostel on Sunday, April 8, as a result of a directive from the school that they should vacate the hostel after staging a protest against the new fees. The letter, which was signed by the institution’s Registrar, Olujinmi Olukoya, said the Academic Board of the College of Medicine, UI considered the possible security threat that the students’ agitation against the new fees could pose and recommended the hostel closure. The letter said that the vice-chancellor, Idowu Olayinka, had approved the board recommendation and directed that the students should leave the hostel before 12 noon on Saturday. However, a letter signed by the President, Medical Students Association in the university, Olakorede Jacob, and the General Secretary, Yahya Bashir, frowned on the letter of closure of the hostel, saying that it was not written on a letterhead of the institution or dated. They also claimed that the letter was not signed by the new Registrar, Mrs. Olubunmi Faluyi. Olatunji Oladejo, the director of public communication, confirmed that the students had been ordered by a letter from the registrar to vacate the hostel pending the review of the situation.
