ASUU ends strike as lecturers are ordered back to work Read

Some good news has come through for Nigerian students as the president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has confirmed that the strike has ended.

Professor Biodun Ogunyemi while speaking to the press on Tuesday, November 22, made it clear that the  one week nationwide warning strike over the non-implementation of a 2009 agreement with the federal government has ended. Prof. Ogunyemi,also urged lecturers to return to work, saying: “We are making progress, especially with the intervention of the Senate. In the next one or two meetings, if we are able to get a clear path to the matter, we will avoid elongation of the strike action.

“I have been receiving these reports that ASUU says strike continues. No. The strike ends today (Tuesday). All lecturers are to go back to work Wednesday morning.” In conclusion the ASUU president said they were hopeful of a positive outcome, going by the response coming from the federal government. 
Meanwhile, this is quite different from what Dr Ifeanyi Abada, the chairman of the university of Nigeria, Nsukka chapter of the ASUU said.

He said that the strike would continue indefinitely, saying: “ASUU was left with no option than to proceed on the one-week warning strike; failure to meet our demands, we will go on an indefinite strike. “The National Executive Committee made efforts to resolve this issue with the government but government remained unyielding. “The strike compliance in UNN is total, no lectures, no examinations, no departmental and faculty meetings, as members will not participate. “UNN chapter will not renege on the directive of the national body until government addresses all the issues raised. Our monitoring team is moving round; any lecturer found teaching will be sanctioned accordingly.

ASUU end warning strike, threatens with indefinite

The ASUU warning strike is gaining momentum as the lecturers are threatening with an indefinite strike
"No lectures, no examinations, no departmental and faculty meetings, as members will not participate."
An attempt by the Senate to reach consensus between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the federal government failed after an eight-hour meeting was deadlocked on Monday, November 21.
While the sides have failed to agree on lecturers' allowances, the education workers are now threatening to turn a week's nationwide waring strike (that ends on Tuesday, November 22) into indefinite.
The news was made public by Dr. Ifeanyi Abada, the chairman of the university of Nigeria, Nsukka chapter of the  ASUU.
He said: "ASUU was left with no option than to proceed on the one-week warning strike; failure to meet our demands, we will go on an indefinite strike.
The National Executive Committee made efforts to resolve this issue with the government but government remained unyielding.
The strike compliance in UNN is total, no lectures, no examinations, no departmental and faculty meetings, as members will not participate.
UNN chapter will not renege on the directive of the national body until government addresses all the issues raised.
Our monitoring team is moving round; any lecturer found teaching will be sanctioned accordingly."
Recall that the warning strike was declared after the failure of the government to implement terms of the 2009 and 2013 agreements.
The agreements included: payments of staff entitlements since December 2015, funding of universities for revitalisation, pension, TSA and university autonomy and renegotiation of 2009 agreement.

Super Eagles beat Desert Warriors 3-1

The Super Eagles of Nigeria sounded out a message of warning to their group counterparts as they defeated the Desert Warriors of Algeria 3-1 in their 2018 World Cup qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.
Eagles’ technical adviser, Gernot Rohr showed his attacking intent for the game as he started with a frontline that included in-form players like Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi , and Kelechi Iheanacho.
Algeria looked a bit shaky as Nigeria controlled proceedings in the early stages, with in-form Chelsea winger, Moses troubling the Algerian defence with his pace and trickery.
The Algerians were largely reduced to limited time on the ball in the midfield area and kept away from Daniel Akpeyi who replaced the injured Eagles’ number one goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme . The goalkeeper was finally called into action when he pushed away a Yacine Brahimi shot in the 23rd minute.
Nigeria’s dominance over the Warriors finally paid off in the 24th minute when Moses latched onto a John Mikel Obi pass and ran at the Algerian defence; he misplaced a pass into the path of Algerian defender Hicham Belkaroui before stealing it back and slotting it coolly past Raïs M'Bolhi to give the Eagles a much deserved lead.
The star was booked for taking off his shirt in jubilation.
The Eagles kept their dominance as shortly after their lead, M'bohli had to come out to punch a Moses cross after the winger had been fouled. Iheanacho almost nodded in another Moses cross in the 29th minute after the Chelsea star played in the Manchester City striker.
Akpeyi had to run out of his box to snuff out the threat of a through ball heading towards his goal and Brahimi picked up the loose ball in his half, did well to skip past a couple of Nigerian defenders and pass to Nabil Bentaleb who wastefully flicked the ball over the net in what was Algeria’s best chance of the game.
Only minutes later, Riyad Mahrez missed another great opportunity for the Algerians.
After a defensive mix up in the Nigerian defence, the ball fell to the Leicester star on the edge of the Nigerian goal and he fired low, inches away from the post in what was a disappointing effort from the midfielder.
The Algerians kept on their momentum and Islam Slimani ran onto another through pass in the Nigerian box, but he was closely followed by the goalkeeper and fired away waywardly.
Shortly after, in the 40th minute, Nigeria got a second goal that deflated the Algerian team.
After some nice passing of the ball near the Algerian box, Nigerian captain, Mikel Obi found himself on the end of an Etebo pass and one-on-one with the goalkeeper after he had been clearly kept onside by
Aissa Mandi ; after a little hesitation, he fired past the Algerian goalkeeper amid a wave of protests from the Algerian players.
The Algerians had another good go at the Nigerian defence as they started a move that ended with a Mahrez shot being deflected over for a corner which was the last action of the first half with the Eagles in a commanding 2-0 lead.
The second half started with a more motivated Algerian team that relentlessly attacked the Nigerian defence going close twice in the 50th and 52nd minute.
Georges Leekens' side came close to getting a goal back as Slimani shot well wide of the post after a couple of Algerian players mishit the ball in the box.
Another shot came whizzing past the bar in the 58th minute much to the frustration of the Nigerian goalkeeper.
The Algerian finally got a breakthrough in the 67th minute as Bentalab collected a pass close to the Nigerian box, and with little pressure from the Nigerian defence, fired in a left footed strike that left Akpeyi helpless.
The Algerians had a penalty shout waved away in the 72 minute, and the referee only awarded a corner kick.
They played with more confidence and kept their assault on the Nigerian defence, coming close again with another angled shot.
They were awarded a dangerous freekick in the 80 minute after fine defensive play from William Troost-Ekong halted a promising Algerian attack.
The resulting freekick took a deflection off the Nigerian wall and looked dangerously close to going in.
Nigeria finally came to life in the dying minutes of the game, as substitute, Ahmed Musa broke down the left from a Moses pass and squared the ball to Iwobi at the far post but the ball was cleared away before the Leicester record signing was adjudged to have been offside.
He came back minutes later and shot wide into the sidenetting after Moses tussled for the ball with the Warriors’ defence.
Motivated by the loud home support, Nigeria started to gain a measure of dominance as Man of the Match, Moses threaded in another good ball that was missed by the onrushing Iheanacho.
The Manchester City striker shot wide minutes later after a good cross from the right from Musa.
Moses finally had the last say in the matter after he scored his second goal of the evening in added minutes to effectively end the contest.
The victory means the Eagles now top their World Cup qualification group with six points, four points ahead of second-placed Cameroon who played a 1-1 draw against Zambia who have just 1 point, the same with Algeria.

The team went on to have their first feel of the match pitch on Friday evening just 24hours to the big clash. Super eagles captain John Mikel Obi has stated that all the players appreciate the importance of this particular game and its ramifications for Nigeria’s march to a sixth FIFA World Cup finals.

“We all know what this match means, why we have to give everything,” he said. “Yes, we started the race well by winning in Zambia, but we have to approach this match even more seriously. The Algerians will come with determination and they will play hard, but we will play harder. “The World Cup is the biggest stage; every player wants to be there. I am happy we have such a young and energetic team. Goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is expected to be in goal for Nigeria after Carl Ikeme suffered an injury in action for his club. Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi are expected to lead the eagles’ attack.

Remember match is at 5 pm 
All the best Eagles.

Soyinka returning to Nigeria to tear US green card

A Facebook user has posted a photo showing Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka purportedly heading back to Nigeria after Donald Trump won US presidential election on Wednesday, November 9.

Recall that Soyinka had said on Wednesday, November 2 while giving a speech to students of Oxford University in England that he would destroy his Green card in the eventuality of a Trump presidency but that decision will have to wait.
He had said: “If in the unlikely event he does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say [that] all green-card holders must reapply to come back into the US. Well, I’m not waiting for that.
He has however added now that he will not destroy his green card yet even after Donald Trump won the US election on Wednesday, November 9. He will now do so when Trump is sworn in on January 20, 2017. This picture seems to suggest that he is seriously preparing for that day which is still 72 days away.
Funny right

Kid Cudi Is back and better

Kid Cudi Performs for the First Time Since Checking Into Rehab for "Suicidal Urges"

Welcome back, Kid Cudi .
Just over a month since he announced he was seeking treatment for "depression and suicidal urges," the hip hop artist returned to the stage Saturday evening at ComplexCon in Long Beach, Calif. Saturday evening.
Cudi performed fan-favorites like "Pursuit of Happiness" and "Up, Up and Away," and even surprised concertgoers with appearances from Pharrell and Travis Scott , who joined the rapper on brand new tracks "Surfin'" and "Through the Late Night," respectively.
Pharrell shared a photo of the musically talented duo on Instagram, and Kid Cudi was all smiles for the moment.
In early October, the Cleveland native made the shocking announcement to fans on his Facebook page , writing, "It's been difficult for me to find the words to what I'm about to share with you because I feel ashamed. Ashamed to be a leader and hero to so many while admitting I've been living a lie. It took me a while to get to this place of commitment, but it is something I have to do for myself, my family, my best friend/daughter and all of you, my fans. Yesterday I checked myself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges."
He continued, "I am not at peace. I haven't been since you've known me. If I didn't come here, I would've done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life. Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times. Idk what peace feels like. Idk how to relax. My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it.
Since then, the musician has found himself in the center of an ongoing feud with Drake.
Following a contentious back-and-forth over Cudi's accusations that Kanye West and Drizzy use ghost writers for their rhymes, Drake made another jab at Cudi in his new song, "Two Birds, One Stone," that many pegged as insensitive given the artist's then-ongoing stint in rehab.

Cudi responded to Drake, taking to Twitter shortly after: "@Drake Say it to face, p---y. You think it's a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I'll be out soon. Promise."

Just want to add bro, we love you and we with you 100 keep making good music as you always have.

Lagos takes over presidential lodge in Marina

– President Muhammadu Buhari says he has a soft spot for Lagos state and would therefore assist in making it the envy of Africa
– As a sign to show this, the president has handed over the Presidential Lodge in the Marina area of the state to Governor Ambode
The Lagos state government has announced the receipt of the Presidential Lodge at the Marina area of the state from President Muhammadu Buhari.
A statement from the state government made available to said Buhari’s gesture followed a request by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to have the lodge released in its bid to transform the Marina-Onikan axis into a world-class arts and tourism hub.

Ambode and Buhari
Under former Governor Babatunde Fashola, the state government had complained about the lodge that seemed to have been abandoned.
The statement on Sunday, November 6 and signed by Steve Ayorinde, the state information commissioner, said the president’s approval was communicated in a letter signed by his chief of staff, Abba Kyari, to Mr Ambode.
The statement quoted Ambode as saying that the president’s gesture was a demonstration of his “keen admiration for Lagos state as the ‘Centre of Excellence’ that is well suited to becoming Africa’s foremost hub for arts, entertainment and tourism.”
With the presidential approval, the statement said Governor Ambode has consequently unveiled plans to turn the lodge to ‘The Heritage Centre for Leadership’, which would be redesigned and equipped as a landmark research and tourist arena that will be open to local and international visitors.
“On behalf of the government and people of Lagos State, I wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for his kind hand-over of the Presidential Lodge in Marina to the Lagos State government.
“This, in my opinion, demonstrates the President’s special interest in Lagos State, which is in line with the promise he made in Lagos during the electioneering campaign, that the interest of Lagosians will always be paramount in his heart,” the statement said.
The Lagos state government added that President Buhari’s approval had come at a time that the old Lagos state House in Marina, which is next door to the Presidential Lodge, is also being prepared for a transformation to The Lagos History Centre, as a mark of honour to and celebration of all former governors of Lagos state, as well as for the benefit of humankind as a whole.

The statement said the state executive council had approved the Lagos House Marina to be turned into Lagos History Centre for tourism purposes.
“With the handing over of the Presidential Lodge to Lagos State, the Lagos state government will begin a process that will transform the whole area into a culture zone in the next two to three years that every Lagosian will be proud of.

UK Mirror reports that the robots have hyper realistic features never seen before with in-built heaters to enable them have genuine body warmth and sensors that can react to touch. Called ‘RealDoll’, the robots are made by Abyss Creations, a California-based company

Robots specifically built for sex with fully functional female genitalia will be available for purchase in 2017.
The robots are expected to be purchased by men who are too timid to approach women or those who are lonely, and unable to get sexual partners.

“I want to have people actually develop an emotional attachment to not only the robot but the actual character behind it – to develop some kind of love for this being,” said Matt McMullen, founder of RealDoll.
According to McMullen, the robots will cost up to £12,000 (N6,600,000m).

LATEST BREAKING: Senate rejects Buhari's $29.96bn loan request

The Senate has rejected the consideration of a request by President Muhammadu Buhari for a $29.9bn External Borrowing Rolling Plan over a period of three years.
Senate has rejected consideration of Buhari’s $29.96bn loan
The senate voted down the loan during plenary on Tuesday, November
The Senators said they turned down request for approval for external borrowing due to lack of documents supporting the request as referenced in the letter sent by the President to the upper house of legislature.
Meanwhile, the story is expected to be different at the House of Representatives where the lawmakers in the green chamber are expected to take a different tack.
Majority Leader Femi Gbajabiamila has revealed plans of the House of Representatives to consider and most likely to approve President Buhari’s request to borrow $29.9 billion (about N12 trillion) for capital projects between 2016 and 2019.
He said this during the event called “Changing Lives through Grassroot Support” in Lagos on Monday, October 31.

PDP praises Ambode, compare him with Fashola

– The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is never known to praise the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)
– But in this case, the party talks about Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s success and compares him with his predecessor
There has been excitement among members of the
All Progressives Congress (APC) following a commendation given Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The PDP in the state gave the commendation in a statement by its spokesperson, Taofiq Gani, saying:
“Without adopting the government of Ambode, at least we can now see signs of government presence in some erstwhile abandoned areas under former Governor Babatunde Fashola.”
Ambode with Fashola, minister for Works, Housing and Power
The Nation reports that the opposition party also advised President Muhammadu Buhari against believing that Babatunde Fashola, his power, housing and works minister who was governor of Lagos, is an achiever as the latter promoted mediocrity, propaganda and inappropriate speculation.
“This patriotic advice is on the heels of the minister celebrating a proposed injection of a mere 30 megawatts of power from the Gurara-hydro power plant, when indeed the minister has collected monumental funding well enough to have injected over 500 megawatts into the national grid.
“The attempt by Fashola to celebrate a mere 30 megawatts is laughable and infuriating because Fashola should rather admit failure and feel sober having mismanaged the power ministry to now cause a drop of supply from over 6,000 megawatts when he took over to now less than 2,000 megawatts.
“We sincerely advise President Buhari to be wary of the deceptive skills of Fashola, who will usually hype and celebrate even mediocrity.
“The minister has a penchant for misrepresenting facts of his achievements in government and would always rationalise obvious inadequacies. As governor, he enjoyed unprecedented revenue and donations, yet left many services untouched or unfinished.”
“He however deliberately funded his pro-fashola media and commentators so much that pseudo and exaggerated achievements were ascribed to him. He employed this model to promote his eight years government of mediocrity.
“Fashola ended up making Lagos the biggest debtor with local and foreign debts well over N1 trillion,” the party said.

Guardiola finally has a victory after six horrible games! Read what he said!

– Guardiola’s side smashed West Bromwich with 4:0 score
– Manchester City previously suffered six matches without victory
– Teh former Barcelona manager reacts to the victory
Dave Kemp, the assistant coach of West Brom, states Manchester City had too much quality for his side.
City were winless in six matches across all competitions heading into the match.
However, Manchester City defeated West Brom 4 – 0 away. Sergio Aguero scoring twice in the first half by pounching on loose balls. Ilkay Gundogan added the third and fourth in the second half as Manchester City arrested a six game winless run.

The win sees City return to the top of the table which Arsenal had temporarily occupied after defeating Sunderland 4 – 0 earlier in the day.
Guardiola celebrates

And Kemp stated: “It wasn’t part of the plan to be 2-0 down, let’s get that right. The people you’re playing against are top, top drawer. These players, they’ve not come down from the Job Centre – they played quite a bit of money for these people and they’re very, very good.”
He continued: “It doesn’t matter what your plan is – you’re right, we didn’t execute that well, I’ll agree with that – it isn’t quite as easy as your plan working and their plan not working. If we’re going to beat Manchester City we need to be on top of our game and we probably need them to drop a notch. That wasn’t the case today.”
The coach added: “We were poor first half, they’re an excellent team, let’s be honest – full of quality. We were 2-0 down but came out second half and gave it a good go. For 25, 30 minutes we did quite well. We needed to score during that period. If we’d scored then it’s maybe a different game. Once it gets to 10 minutes to go and they’re pushing forward breaking on us, they’re good enough to punish you.”
Kemp concluded: “Even with the last goal we are disappointed because we actually had eight players back in the box after we’d been attacking. Our commitment was still there if we’re looking for pluses but on the day they were too good for us and had too much quality.”

Naira weakens to N470 per dollar at parallel market

The Naira on Friday, October 28, weakened again to N470 per dollar in the parallel market, but the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has moved to find a lasting solution.
The depreciation comes after the local currency had recovered from N470 it traded on Wednesday, October 26, to close at N465 at the parallel market on Thursday, October 27.
However, reports have it that the current rate has prompted the CBN to meet with Bureaux De Change (BDC) operators and Travelex to evolve measures to halt the persistent slide of the currency.
Dollar to Naira
According to BDC sources, the persistent drop of the local currency this week is due to the delay of the weekly dollar sale of $15,000 by Travelex to each BDC.
A BDC source told “The dollar has gone up because Travelex is yet to sell to us. But we believe they would do so before the end of today. If that happens, the exchange rate will drop before the end of today.”
However, Vanguard reports that the CBN has met with Travelex and Association of Bureaux De Change Operators of Nigeria (ABCON), to evolve measures to enhance supply of dollars and halt the depreciation of the naira.
Alhaji Aminu Gwadabe, ABCON president said: “Yes we met with the CBN and Travelex to identify the problem and proffer solutions. Much of the problem is because BDCs outside Lagos are yet to be incorporated into the weekly dollar sale by Travelex. As a result there is increased demand pressure on the market in Lagos, causing the rate to go up. Also remember that we are in the ember months, and preparation for the yuletide season is increasing demand for dollars.
“To address this, the CBN has directed that First Bank should begin to sell to BDCs outside Lagos. It also directed Travelex to open up more locations across the country to serve BDCs outside Lagos. Also the number of BDCs accessing the weekly dollar sale in Lagos has been increased from 1000 to 1,400. So the situation in the market now is temporary. We expect the rates to drop as soon as these measures are implemented.”

We must speak out when our laws are not obeyed - Saraki

– Senate president Bukola Saraki has said lawmakers should be courageous to speak up when citizens do not obey the law
– He said the National Assembly will work within their power to cooperate with the arms of government
– He said the National Assembly of Nigeria will continue to be a people-centered institution, where the interest and welfare of every Nigerian is paramount

Senate president Bukola Saraki has said lawmakers should be courageous to speak up when citizens do not obey the law
Senate president Bukola Saraki, said that lawmakers must be brave to speak up when laws are not obeyed by any arm of government, Vanguard reports.
Speaking at the ongoing 135th assembly of the inter-parliamentary union and related matters in Geneva, Switzerland, he said the National Assembly will cooperate with other arms of government to ensure that human rights violations must not be tolerated.
He also reiterated the resolve of the National Assembly to place the welfare, interest and general well-being of Nigerians on the front-burner as a way of cushioning the effects of the present economic recession and hardship.
In a statement by his chief press secretary, Sanni Onogu, the Senate president said the National Assembly will continue to work in partnership with the legislative body to check human rights abuses across the world.
“There are available laws addressing most of the human-rights related issues, the major problems are centered around non-implementation, poor oversight and lack of enforcement of these laws. We must, however, demonstrate courage, make sacrifices, be accountable, and stand up for the people we represent.
‘’We must speak out loudly when our laws are not obeyed and work in synergy with the other arms of government to ensure that human right violations wherever it occurs is condemned and addressed.
“The National Assembly of Nigeria will continue to be a people-centered institution, where the interest and welfare of every Nigerian is paramount.
“As duly elected representatives of the Nigerian people, we will continue to work closely with every stakeholder in the arduous task of building a prosperous, secured and egalitarian society, where everyone will have a sense of belonging.
“It is on this note that I wish to encourage this discourse and also throw the weight of the National Assembly of Nigeria behind the efforts of the IPU in ensuring early response on the part of Parliaments in checking human rights abuses in order to avoid needless conflict,’’ he said.
Recall that Saraki, has promised to do all within the ambit of the law to re-invigorate the dwindling nation’s economy and make it compete with that of developed nations across the country.
He said the present administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari is working towards attracting investors whose entry will revamp the nation’s stock market and ailing industries that dot the landscape.

inspiring pictures of Aliko Dangote's mansion

Getting inspired by the stylish living of Africa’s richest man is a good way to start the week. Whoever said money was the root of all evil should have added that money also provides a lifestyle fit for a god.
Dangote is a 59-year-old man business man that hails from Kano. He is the great grandson of Alhaji Dantata Alhassan; Africa’s richest man at the time of his death in 1955. A man like Dangote is easily an inspiration to millions of people who hope to dominate in their areas of expertise but more importantly, he lives a life that some people can only dare to dream of.
It comes as no surprise that everything about a simple man born into a prominent business family in Kano is a wonder to many. One thing is clear, he is consistent, hardworking, brilliant and of course lives like a king. I mean, when you role with Bill Gates and presidents, how else will you live?
Dangote and Bill Gates

Africa cradle got access to his beautiful home and took great pictures of the rich man’s palace.

Here are pictures of inside the house:

1. Dangote’s Bathroom
Just check out the sophistication of the bathroom. Did you think “goals?” You are not alone.

2. Dangote’s bedroom
Aliko Dangote’s bedroom
This where all the alone time of Africa’s richest man happens. This probably where most of his ideas are birthed. This one of the places history is made.

3. Dangote’s home board room

Board room
This where all the meeting he holds at home goes down. This is where billions and millions are discussed. Take youur time to picture the billions.

4. Dangote’s home office
Home office
Most successful people have an office in their house and it is no different for Alhaji Aliko Dangote. Now that’s an office to dream about.

5. Dangote’s kitchen
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Its safe to say Dangote loves to nourish his body with good food as much as he likes to make money. And for the love of interior designing, such a good job.

6. Dangote’s mansion
Stair way view
Amazing isn't it.

7. Living room
Nice design and colour combination, 100 %.

That's all for that and much more if you pay him a visit :)
