ASUU update: Declared the strike continues toll the FG yield to it request

The Academic Staff Union of Universities ( ASUU ) says there is no going back on its on going strike as 80% of the chapter voted for continuation
Prof . Biodun Ogunyemi , the union ’s National President , told the News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN ) on telephone in Abuja that the strike would be total and indefinite.
The union leadership , after its executive committee meeting , declared the strike continues toll the FG yield to it request .
Ogunyemi said chronic under-funding of the sector through low budgetary allocation, which went from 11 per cent in 2015 to eight per cent in 2016, did not go down well with the union .
He pointed out the failure of government to implement the 2009 agreement and the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding ( MoU ) as some of the reasons for embarking on the warning strike.
The president said that its members were tired of what they described as “government ’s empty promises ’’ in setting up its negotiation team for the review of agreement as consistently requested by ASUU since 2012 .
“There shall be no teaching , no examination and no attendance of statutory meetings of any kind in any of our branches while the strike lasts .’’
According to him , the union will put machinery in place to ensure that there is total compliance during the strike..
He explained that the essence of the strike was to draw attention of concern stakeholders and the general public to the challenges that the unions, universities and other stakeholders in the sector were facing.
“Nobody will say before we exhaust the warning strike some issues cannot be addressed if government want to be sincere with our cause.
“We are doing this because we want Nigerians to come into the matter and ensure that these issues are given adequate attention they deserve
“Our lecturers are given 40 per cent of their salaries , which is just not encouraging, as this will lead to poor commitment in carrying out their jobs .
“I am sure nobody will like a 40 per cent university education or 40 per cent teaching of various courses including research development and output .
“That is why we have to take the matter before the National Assembly, which we believe , will come into the matter just like the Nigerian parents .’’.
ASUU also uses this medium to wish all student happy salah .

Knowing these 10 early signs of HIV can save your life
HIV is one of the primer killer diseases in Africa and all over the world. If you know its early symptoms, you can get timely treatment and stop spreading the epidemic! Knowing these 10 early signs of HIV can save your life NAIJ.com lists 10 early symptoms of HIV every person should be aware of:
1. Sore throat Surely all on its own this sign does not tell you to have HIV. However, in combination with the below-listed ones it should set an alarm and move you to take the HIV test. Soreness in the throat may precede fever.
2. Fever It’s a common symptom for all kinds of infections, both viral and bacterial. However, if you got HIV, the fever may last up to 4 weeks, then disappear and reemerge later on for the same period. 77+ percent of all the patients who were diagnosed with early HIV symptoms had a lasting fever. Knowing these 10 early signs of HIV can save your life
3. Rashes As well as other skin problems they may indicate HIV infection. This virus affects the whole body and gets those reactions from all organs, including the skin. So, in a combination with ongoing fever and sore throat, it should alarm you and motivate to take the test.
4. Night sweats These have nothing to do with just feeling hot. People with HIV sweats have extreme experiences. Their clothes drench and even the bed linens get all wet. Many a time person wakes up and has to change before they can go back to sleep. Knowing these 10 early signs of HIV can save your life
5. Lymph nodes’ swelling Since HIV affects the immune system of the body the most, it may evoke the enlargement of the immune system organs – the lymph nodes. Over half of the patients with early HIV symptoms had it.

Shocking Details Of How 10-year-old Boy Was Initiated into Robbery

A 10-year-old boy has revealed how he was lured into robbery at a very tender age.
Victor Tarekedomoni made the confession when he was being paraded by the police in Bayelsa State during the week. Victor is said to be specialized in robbing victims of phones at bus stops and breaking into houses by squeezing through anti-burglary iron-bars, to ransack the homes, during which he would cart away jewelleries, money, phones, and other valuables.
He confessed that he had led several successful operations before nemesis caught up with him.
The young boy told newsmen that he got into the illicit business through the help of his uncle, having already lost his father. He said:
“I lost my father and my mother very early in life. I was staying with my uncle, (name withheld), who taught me how to rob. My uncle has sent me on several occasions to rob in the area.
“There was one time he sent me to an office to steal a TV and their computer, which I did. I was attending the Universal Basic Primary Community Education School at Ovom, I was in primary 4 when I dropped out of school.
What happened was that my uncle went to rob, but when the police came to look for him, he ran away from home. So, I dropped out of school and joined a robbery gang.
“I have been involved in several armed robberies; when we go for operation, the older members of the gang will lift me up the fence, I will jump down and pass through the burglarproof bars, enter the house, ransack the place, take money, jewellery and then escape. After the robbery, they will give me N1000 or N1500, which I used to feed myself daily.
Victor, who hails from Egaibiri community in Sagbama Local Government Area, Bayelsa State said further:
“I have robbed over 20 victims. I stole their phones at bus stops or along the street.
“It was when I spent one month in SARS custody, I decided to escape and squeezed through the iron-bars of the cell. I always slept in the store at Arietalin Street, Ovom, before policemen re-arrested me at Sandy area in Yenagoa.”
“If the state government or the governor of Bayelsa can come to my rescue and train me, I can be leader in Bayelsa tomorrow. I am talented and blessed but I didn’t have parental care.
That is why I went into robbery and joined a gang. I am a member of Greenlander cult group. I don’t want to go back to robbing again. I want to be a good citizen of Bayelsa.
“I want the public to forgive me because it was my uncle who introduced me to robbery. I started stealing before I joined the gang. The names of the other six members of the gang who are still on run are Junior, Finefine, Daddy Boy, Godspower, Kempade and Goodtimes.

ASUU Strike: FG To Disburse N23bn To ASUU Next Week

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has disclosed that the Federal Government has made arrangement to release the sum of N23 billion to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
He made this known while speaking on Tuesday before the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND, led by Senator Jibrin Barau.
According to him, plans are on ground to honour the agreement between the FG and ASUU.
He stated that the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, had already approved a total N53bn for the union so far, adding that the balance of N23bn would be released on Monday when the striking lecturers would receive the cheque.
He however said, “We didn’t agree with ASUU on their request that TSA should be taken out. I told them that it is not possible because it is a new policy and government is not going to change it for anyone.
“Concerning their salary short fall, we said the reason springs from universities employing people without proper authority.
“For instance, a university can just decide to go and recruit 50 people without notifying IPPIS. So, what they are going to get is the money they got last month, which will not be sufficient for them. We have told them that institutions should, henceforth, stop doing that and they accepted.
The Minister finally Said that he is optimistic that the strike will be called of within then next one week maximum.

“Stop forcing students to buy your handouts” – ASUU Warns Lecturers Amidst Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities in Nigeria (ASUU) has expressed displeasure at the mandatory sale of handouts by some lecturers in tertiary institutions, NAN reports.
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, President of the union, expressed this view in an interview on Tuesday August 15, in Abuja.
He stated: “It is not wise for lecturers in our tertiary institutions to compel students to be buying handouts.
“Though it is not a widespread practice, we have few people that are misbehaving.
“But the system has a way of handling them, so anywhere they see them they always put them on check.
“It is not permitted in the system and there is a structure for tracking and dealing with that; so ASUU as a union doesn’t condone it, and we discourage it anywhere and everywhere we go.”
A cross section of Nigerian students also decried the rate at which some lecturers extort money from them in the name of selling of handouts.
Speaking in separate interviews, students lamented that they were being forced to buy handouts, and that failure to do so could result in failing the courses.

Mr. Osita Chukwu, a student in the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Abuja, alleged that the lecturers usually assigned some students to sell the reading materials to them.
Chukwu alleged that the handouts were sold between N1, 500 and N2, 000, saying that the students were also made to submit their registration numbers for identification of defaulters.
He said: “The most annoying thing is that you may have three lecturers handling a course and each of them will print a handout for students to buy.
“And they will make it compulsory, so that you have no option than to subscribe to it, because if you decide to photocopy it, you may stand the risk of failing the course.’’
Miss Joy David, a student in the Faculty of Business Administration, Nasarawa State University, Keffi, decried the manner some lecturers compel students to buy handouts that sometimes lack depth.
Contributing, Miss Janet Obiora, a student of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, said the sale of handouts by some lecturers had promoted mediocrity among students as many of them no longer go to the school library to do research.
She opined that the mandatory sales of handouts also encouraged laziness among students who often want to concentrate on the handouts from their lecturers.

We Support The ASUU Strike But The Timing Is Wrong – NANS

As the ASUU strike continues, parents and students have started expressing their displeasure over the strike.
Reacting to the indefinite strike, president of National Association of Nigeria Students, NANS, Comrade Chinonso Obasi, said the students body was in solidarity with ASUU but noted that the timing was wrong.
Obasi said that in view of the economic situation in the country, ASUU should have tarried a while instead of embarking on strike immediately, adding that university lecturers had always ignored the students when taking decisions.
A parent who spoke to newsmen concerning the situation has this to say, “This is very disheartening, when one is thinking about the future of the children and counting when they will graduate, another indefinite strike will delay them and cause stress on the students and untold hardship on the parents.”
It was gathered in many of the universities academic activities have come to a halt in view of the current strike.
Efforts made to get the reaction of the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, did not yield any results but one of the aides in the office said the ministry was still studying the reasons for the strike.
