An Appeal To Nigerian Universities, Polytechnics And NECO, SSCE Exam Date.

A speech made by Azemohor Frank yesterday. I appeal to Nigerian universities and polytechnics to please note that the National Examination Council’s Senior Secondary Certificate Examination for 2013 will start on Saturday, June 1 and end on July 12 so that their post-UTME test dates won’t clash with the NECO exam as was the case last year. Secondly, I will want all exam committees of the various institutions of higher learning in the country to please meet and fix different days so that already confused students will have better time to travel from one school to another.

Muslim Students Protest Hijab Ban In Lagos Schools.

Justice Olubunmi Oyewole, of an Ikeja High Court has fixed July 10, 2013, for further hearing of an out-of-court settlement brought before him over the lingering crisis between the Lagos State Government and the Muslim Students Society, MSS over the ban of Hijab in public schools in Lagos State.

The decision of the court was sequel to the request by the Lagos State counsel, Muniru Ajanaku who prayed the court to adjourn the matter on the ground that the state believe that the matter can be resolved out-of-court.

The lead counsel for the students, Taiwo Hassan Fajimite said it is unfortunate that the state has not responded on the case until now, but that the muslim community is willing to meet the state government and consider the terms and conditions being offered on the way out.

The Muslim students who thronged the court to witness the proceedings, took to the streets to protest and to register their displeasure over the decision by the Lagos State Government to ban the use of Hijab by female muslim students in public schools.

The students led by Muslim teachers and some clerics, carried different placards with inscriptions such as, “Hijab is our right, it must be respected, “Fashola, to be forewarned is to be forearmed, “Lagos State Government, stop discrimination of our female students” etc.

The students promised to continue their protest as well as exploring every available legal means to ensure the rights of muslim students to wear hijab in public schools is protected.

However, some stern looking policemen immediately mobilized to the scene to avoid miscreants from hijacking the rally.

The female students who wore Hijab on their various uniforms vowed to continue wearing their Hijab to school, until the court decides it’s legality or otherwise.

In his short ruling on the application by government counsel, Justice Oyewole urged both parties to explore the dialogue option and report back to the court in the next adjourned date.

Why 16,000 JAMB Results Were Cancelled – Minister of Education, Prof. Ruquayyatu Rufa’i

Minister of Education, Prof. Ruquayyatu Rufa’i, has explained that 16,000 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, results were cancelled by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, because of examination malpractices by the candidates.


She said: ”We shall be resolute in our decisions as there shall be no sacred cows. Nobody, no matter how highly placed, will be allowed to get away with the breach of the law or perpetration of corruption and evil in our colleges and tertiary institutions.”Rufa’i spoke through Mr. Julius Ameh, yesterday, in Abuja, during the presentation of the Teachers’ Guide for the teaching of the National Values Curriculum, NVC, in Basic Education, which was funded by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offenses Commission, ICPC.

The minister said the inclusion of the guide into the numerous literature available in the education sector, especially on corruption and value orientation, was an indication of the premium which the administration placed on education and transparency in the conduct of government business.

She said: “It is also an eloquent testimony of the present administration’s determination to heal the wounds of the past quickly, put the ugly past behind and use the new NVC to stretch hands of fellowship to aggrieved Nigerians for complete reconciliation.

“The Nigerian child must be encouraged and taught that integrity pays.”

His self respect must be restored and his growth process rewarded through mentoring and parental care.” - she added.

Chairman of ICPC, Ekpo Nta, in his address, said that the NVC was applicable at all levels of education and was designed to expose the Nigerian child to a value-based curriculum that incorporates ethical values into academic studies from the early years to adulthood.

“The curriculum has been infused into subjects and courses at basic, post-basic and teacher-education levels. It has also been infused into the curriculum of mass literacy and non-formal education,” he said.

Nta further pointed out the need for teachers to be trained and properly oriented on the methodology and behavioral imperatives for imparting such values.

“We therefore, request commissioners for education and chairmen of SUBEB to order for more copies of the teachers’ guide such that every school in the basic education system in each state is given enough copies for the use of teachers,” he added.

The Executive Secretary of National Educational Research Development Council, NERDC, Prof. Godwill Obioma, explained that the NVC as approved by the National Council on Education, NCE, in 2004 was to educate young Nigerians on their duties, rights as well as obligations to themselves and the society.

He added that ICPC and NERDC developed the Teachers’ Guide to assist teachers as implementers of the NVC, to acquire the knowledge as well as serve as a source of materials for the teaching of the new ideas.

“The Teachers’ Guide is expected to make the implementation of the NVC easier for teachers. It is meant to serve as a resource material for the effective implementation of the NVC,” Obioma further said.

NDLEA drags (ESUT) student to court for smoking Indian hemp: Wonders Shall Never End

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has dragged one Jude Ugwu, a post graduate student of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), to the Federal High Court sitting in Enugu for hemp smoking.

The counsel to the plaintiff, Mr Uzoamaka Anigwe, said Ugwu was caught by the operatives of the NDLEA smoking Indian hemp around the Okpara Square axis in Independence Layout while standing alone.

Anigwe said that when he was sighted by a patrol team of the NDLEA, the accused made to run away.

“Luck ran out on him when he was tracked down by the patrol team. The point that my learned colleague was canvassing as regards to the accused waiting for paper materials for his post graduate studies is baseless and a calculated attempt to deceive the court in granting him justice.

“We are here with some Indian hemp recovered from him when he was caught. I will be glad if this honorable court can convict him to serve as a deterrent to our youths who have decided to engage in drug abuse instead of being useful to themselves,” he said.

The counsel to the accused, Mr Francis Ajagu, said his client was arrested on March 30, 2012 where he was waiting for his cousin, Mr Emeka Ike, to collect some paper materials from him for his assignment.

“My client was never caught with Indian hemp and neither was he caught smoking Indian hemp.

“It was surprising that before the arrival of Mr Emeka Ike who was supposed to hand over the materials to him, the operatives of NDLEA have whisked my client away to their office without listening to his own side of the story.

“Here with me is Mr Emeka Ike who my client was waiting for; he is here before this honorable court to testify on the alleged accusation of Indian hemp smoking.

“It will be a victory for the Nigerian judiciary and the rule of law if my client can be discharged as soon as possible,” he said.

Justice D.V. Agishi said the court had listened to the arguments and adjourned the case till Aug. 2 for further hearing and cross examination. (NAN)

While JAMB has claimed that the CBT is a full proof system and no error will be recorded because the entire system is computer manipulated, how come there are omissions in subjects?

We are creating this thread for all CBT candidates who have any issues with the test, to state them using the comment box provided below this page. Please post your complains while we try to work with JAMB officers in finding solutions to your problems.

NUC warns universities to stick to approved guidelines

The National Universities Commission, NUC, has told the universities in the country to adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of the NUC operating license as spelt out in the approved guidelines for the universities in the country.

The executive secretary, NUC, Prof. Julius Okogie disclosed this at the weekend in Lokoja during the convocation ceremony of 95 graduating students of Salem University.

The NUC executive secretary who was represented by Prof. Bisi Balogun, appealed to the universities in the country to desist from running un-approved programmes and courses, saying the organisation will not hesitate to sanction any institution found wanting in that direction.

Earlier, the institution’s vice chancellor, Prof Joseph Adeola Fuwape stated that the graduating students constituted proud fulfilment of the vision of Salem University, which he said is to produce graduates worthy in learning and character for outstanding leadership and global impact.

Prof Fuwape disclosed that 95 students are graduating from the college of information and communication technology, college of natural and applied science as well as college of peace and social science, adding that three students graduated with first class division, 49 with second class upper division, 39 second class lower division, three with third class while one graduated with a pass.

He said the problem of funding and low level of students’ intake relative to its carrying capacity has been identified as the challenges confronting the institution, appealing to the state governor, Idris Wada, to extend a hand of fellowship to the institution.

The V.C implored the graduating students to uphold the virtue of the institution as they are going to the outside world, since they have been found worthy in character and learning.

Governor Idris Wada said his administration place much premium on education, assuring the institution of his support; even as he commended the institution for the achievement recorded so far despite challenges.

Will UNIZIK Reduce Her Cut-off to 180? -Read a student report here

After much rumours and calculated speculations on possible UTME cut-off mark of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University for this year, Emmanuel, a 200L Mathematics Student of the school wrote on the fate of those who scored less than 200 in JAMB. Take your time and go through this. Comments are welcome..


Dear UNIZIK's Aspirants,

Much I've heard and much I've inquired, has pushed me to draft this.

Though, it seems elusively obvious to the people, the number of candidates that scored below average on the just concluded JAMB exam is bigger compared to those who scored above average, the statistics of those who scored above average on that same exam.

Many would be wondering the fate of the school in not reducing the cut-off mark, some would keep asking if they'd reduce the cut-off mark , and some would be deceived by their speculation. All this are mere conjectures- there is no such thing as mass failure! I tell you this one thing, UNIZIK 's cut-off mark you've known is still what it is! which I really know is impossible to be reduced.

Sequel to the above, I'd advice all that wrote the just concluded JAMB but, scored below 200 to kindly apply for a change of course to any of the educational courses that's been offered by the faculty of education in the school. Departments in Education Faculty Normally cut less than 200.

This is to ensure that no one would cry had I known on the commencement of sales of the postUTME forms.

Because, restrictions might be given to banks that would sell the forms which might make you not to write the upcoming postUTME.

On behalf of all Myscholarsgist'ers, I wish everyone good luck. I am Emmanuel Ugochukwu, A.K.A, Mcast. 200L Mathematics Student, UNIZIK.

Would you support the ban of Mobile Phones in Nigerian Universities?

A lecturer at the University of Abuja, Agbo David Oklo, has advocated for the ban of use of mobile phones by students in all tertiary institutions in the country in view of its negative influence in the lives of the students.

The lecturer, who stated this in an interview with our reporter at the language week of the Government Secondary School, Kubwa, described mobile phones as serious distraction to students in the course of their studies.

Attributing the poor performance of students in examinations to the use of social media, Agbo maintained that the ban of cell phones would not only increase their academic performance, but will reduce the moral decadence among the students.

The university don, who spoke on the topic "Language as a tool for national development", tasked the students to take the study of English language seriously, being a major prerequisite for entrance into tertiary institutions.

He called for better remuneration for teachers at various levels in order to boost their moral to give their best to the students.

The head of Languages department of the school, Mrs. Esther Kanu, said the essence of the programme was to improve the language skills of the students and to equip and prepare them for future examinations.

She canvassed for increase in staff salaries and regular organisation of seminars and workshops for teachers to update their knowledge for subsequent transfer to the students.

DO you think this argument is right? Comment below.

Excursion Enhances Students' Capacity - Educationist

Excursion is very significant to students learning process because it enhances their capacity, the Chairman of Pacesetter College, Abuja, Barrister Kenneth Imasuagbon said.

Imasuagbon explained that excursion exposes students to firsthand experience about what they have learnt in the classrooms.

The proprietor, who disclosed that students of Pacesetter College, Abuja have received visas to go for a one month excursion in the United States, said the school would make good use of the opportunity in order to enhance the capacity of the students.

He said the aim of the annual visit is to expose the students on activities outside the shores of Nigeria, adding that during the excursion students would visit various places of interest.

Uniabuja Council Inaugurates Staff, Students Audit Panel

The Governing Council of the University of Abuja has inaugurated the panel for staff and students audit for the institution as being directed by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

Members of the panel include Prof Abdullahi Ribadu who is chairman, Prof Anthony Adegbulugbe, Prof Ediga Agbo, Hajiya Aisha Babangida and Dr Godswill Ogboghodo, who is to serve as secretary.

The Pro Chancellor and Chairman of the Council, Dr Samuel Ogbemudia, while inaugurating the panel yesterday revealed that the exercise will help the management of the institution in carrying out its responsibilities to the institution.

Ogbemudia urged the panel to work towards the expectation of the government and come out with accurate number of staff and students of the institution.

The council chairman listed the terms of reference of the panel as developed by the NUC to include, accurate number of academic staff and the regularity of their appointments, qualifications and dates obtained and appropriateness of the total number of staff and postings.

Others include, productivity and career progression, number of students, the regularity of the admission and their different programmes/courses, recommendations for improvement in future appointment of staff and admission of students as well as recommendations on any other issue the panel considers relevant to its assignment.

Oshodin and the Uniben VC Appointment

FRANTZ FANON is reputed for his unassailable postulation that:"History will not forgive those men who have the exceptional privilege of speaking the words of truth, but have decided to take refuge in an attitude of captivity, mute indifference and sometime cold complicity".

History will not forgive us if we fail to correct the wrong information encapsulated in pages 1 and 2 of a national newspaper of Friday, April 26, 2013 with the title, 'How ethnicity, religion influence appointments of varsities officials'.

"The eventual emergence of Prof. Osayuki Oshodin in November2009 as Vice-Chancellor, even when he came third among the contestants in the order of merit... ".

It is pertinent to state that the above statement is not only untrue, but also an attempt to re-write the history of Professor Osayuki Godwin Oshodin's meritorious appointment as Vice-Chancelor of the University of Benin.

It is worthy of note that whereas it was the law before Professor Oshodin's appointment as Vice-Chancellor that the university Council would select three qualified persons for the office of Vice-Chancellor and send the list to the Federal Government (Presidency) which, in the exercise of its statutory power, appoints one of the three as Vice-Chancellor.

The newspaper allowed itself to be misled as the extant law that governed the appointment of Prof Oshodin (JP) as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin did not permit the submission of three names to the government.

So the issue of who was first, second or third on list does not arise. Rather, the university Council was conferred truly with autonomy by the extant law to appoint the best person in all ramifications as Vice-Chancellor. Prof Oshodin was meritoriously adjudged the best and was so appointed as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin by the Governing Council of the University.

So where did the newspaper get the story of Prof Oshodin coming third from? Is it pure mischief or absolute ignorance? Unfortunately, the newspaper story did not state the last time a non-Yoruba person was Vice-Chancellor in the University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and the University of Lagos.

The attempt to draw a correlation between the agitation by a Benin Group and the appointment of Prof Oshodin as Vice-Chancellor is untenable. It failed, refused, and neglected to state that no Benin man was appointed Vice-Chancellor for the 40 years of the existence of the University of Benin until the meritorious appointment of Prof Oshodin as Vice-Chancellor.

The point that was unambiguously made at that time was there was a cabal entrenched in the university to frustrate the appointment of qualified Benin Professors as Vice-Chancellor in the University of Benin. It is the height of injustice, discrimination, marginalization and deprivation that prevailed for about 40 years in the university. No wonder the university had its attendant problems at the time.

It is on record that it is not only the Benin people that agitate for justice, fairness and equity which the human race always agitate for. I want to refer the writer of that article to the Vanguard Newspaper of Tuesday, April 10, 2013, at page 36, where it is reported that the Urhobos are advocating for an indigenous Vice-Chancellor for the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, FUPRE.

The writer may have forgotten that since the inception of the Delta State University, Abraka, ONLY Professors of the Urhobo stock have occupied the seat of Vice-Chancellor in the institution for obvious reasons. So will the writer hit the roof for what the indigenes perceive as their legitimate demand?

So, why the hullabaloos about the agitation of Binis in 2009 for one of their own to occupy the seat of Vice-Chancellor of the University if Benin after 40 years of the existence of the university in Benin City, even when they have lots of eminently qualified Professors, many of them also seasoned administrators, to occupy the position? Please people should leave the Binis alone!

Mr. OBASOGIE EDORODION, a social critic, wrote from Benin City, Edo State.

Yobe Approves N2.3 Billion for Victims of Insurgency, WAEC Candidates

Yobe State Governor Ibrahim Gaidam yesterday approved N 2.3 billion to assist victims of Boko Haram insurgency, sponsor WAEC candidates and execute other projects in the state.

The state's Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Goni Fika, who disclosed this to newsmen after the state executive council meeting in Damaturu, said the council approved N187 million to assist those whose houses were burnt and families of those who were killed by gunmen. He said the donation will be given to the victims through the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).

Fika added that the agency established that a total of 99 people were innocently killed, while 135 others were attacked and their houses burnt.

He further stated that the council approved N259 million for registration fees of WAEC candidates in government owned sponsored secondary schools. Fika said the council also approved N653 million for construction of 6.4 kilometre roads and drainages in three estates through direct labour by the Ministry of Works.

What a world. A final year nursing student died in a car accident! woe unto death !

What a tragedy, everyday pains and sorrows. A final Nursing student of Ogun state school of Nursing is now no more, death you are wicked.

She was last seen on Sunday after she came back from church and was hungry and decided to go and buy food to eat, only for her to involve in a car accident and died immediately.

What a world, full of sorrows and tears. Can the family bear this? what a big loss after years of suffering, pains, stress, only to die on her way to buy herself food.

Please if you are reading this now, know you that this world is nothing to fight for or, suffer because the world is vanity upon vanity, nothing comes to stay.

If not the leaders that are making things worst for the children of the world, at least we could have been free from sufferings before death will come but then it's a pity that we can help her now she is gone and one day everyone in this world will still go to his/her own destination. Don't say God forbid, it's natural.

All we need is to be prayerful because after our life on earth, we don't know where we are heading to.

Sorry nurse and may your soul rest in peace till we meet to part no more. God only you knows the best.

This is an evidence of what Alexander the Great had to say:

On his death bed, Alexander summoned his generals and told them his three ultimate wishes:

1. The best doctors should carry his coffin;

2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, and precious stones) should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery; and,

3. His hands should be let loose, hanging outside the coffin for all to see!! One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests asked Alexander to explain.

Here is what Alexander the Great had to say: 1. I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate that, in the face of death, even the best doctors in the world have no power to heal;

2. I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth, stays on earth...

3. I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people understand that we come to this world empty handed and we leave this world empty handed after the most precious treasure of all is exhausted, and that is TIME

4. TIME is our most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce more wealth, but we cannot produce more time.

5. When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of our life that we will never take back. Our time is our life!

6. So my dear, the best present that you can give to your family and friends, is your TIME.

May God grant you plenty of TIME and may you have the wisdom to give it away so that you can LIVE and LOVE in peace.

Gov Okorocha Orders Unemployed Graduates Back to Farms, offers N50m interest free loans.

n a bid to decongest unemployment situation that has formed a hydra-headed monster in Nigeria at large, Governor Rochas Anayo Okorocha of Imo State has ordered unemployed graduates in the State to get ready to be fully engaged in the farm land acquired by government in each of the autonomous community among 637 communities in the state.



This action seemed to have frustrated thousands of degree and certificate-carrying unemployed graduates who emptied into the state capital to witness and be part of the Youth-Must-Work program unfolded yesterday.

Many graduates who were in Owerri the state capital with photocopies of their credentials for civil service jobs and possible employment in the state work force went home disappointed as no white collar job was to be made available to them.

Governor Okorocha made this known yesterday at Heroes Square Owerri while launching a programme he called “youth must work”.



He advised the youth to ensure that they fill the farm designated for the exercise adding that state government for the exercise will soon collaborate with House of Assembly to enact a law that would prosecute unemployed youths any moment from now.



The Governor charged Ministry of Agriculture to work in synergy with Community Government Council (CGC) to ensure that at least a hectare of farm land is established in each of the communities where youths will be gainfully employed adding that unemployment situation will be a thing of past after the exercise as those who are not interesting in Agric sector shall be engaged in super markets and oil companies among viable working carriers in the state.



According to Governor, five billion naira interest free loan will be set aside to cushion the plights and challenges of the unemployed youths. Governor Okorocha further approved ten thousand naira monthly stipend for each corps-member serving in the state which he said will be paid to them via CGC.



He further expressed dissatisfaction that the alleged sixty seven billion naira mismanaged by the immediate past administration would have gone a long way to arrest unemployment in Imo State, maintaining that EFCC should do further investigation on the said fraud.

Speaking further, Okorocha said that he has allocated about N5m each to members of the Imo State House of Assembly for employment purposes.

He also promised to procure at least five hundred cabs for the youth who might have interest in transportation business. He further said that in the Private Partnership Program, PPP, people shall be posted to hotels and supermarkets where they will be paid by the respective employers.



Earlier, the Imo State Coordinator of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) thanked the Governor for organizing such exercise adding that youth will always support him in all ramifications.



Reacting on the matter, a frontline youth leader and the National Secretary of Imo Youth Assembly, Comrade Precious Nwadike stated that “Okorocha should not toy and deceive Imo youths as he is also a graduate as we are meant to understand and should not treat the unemployed ones some of who graduated with better qualifications than him in the manner he is going now. Everybody cannot be Governor and that is why some of us are not governors today otherwise we are eminently qualified to be governors going by our academic qualification. We feel pained in us that Governor Okorocha who hails from Orlu zone could mobilize the youths of Imo State just to tell stories of how governance has failed in the state”

. According to Nwadike who is also the President of OrluZurumee Youth Assembly, “we had earlier advised Governor Okorocha to engage the N10, 000 job beneficiaries rather than creating 15,000 jobs for another set of unemployed graduates and that is our position both at Orluzurumee Youth Assembly and Imo Youth Assembly. We are graduates and not market women as such we should not be told certain stories politicians tell artisans and market women. The idea of posting our young girls to hotels is another way of encouraging graduates to go into prostitution at a time like this when the Governor should make frantic effort to revamp the Imo State industrial layout at Onitsha road by simply making the roads accessible and reducing cost of production and encourage Imolites to come home and invest. The youths who benefited from the 10,000 jobs created by the last administration should be reconsidered than this new gospel from the present administration. We should not be toys in the hands of our leaders”

Jamb CBT Hall. See what it looks like here.

The jamb "Cbt" Computer base test hall is so wonderful and so competent [msg myscholarsgist.com], in fact is enjoying and everything every student in Nigeria will like to practice because there is a lot of benefit and computer flexibility.
