Nigerian genius, Saheela Ibraheem, 19, made history On Thursday, February, 26, when she was honoured with an official reception in the White House by the US President, Barack Obama and the First Lady, Michelle.

Saheela Ibraheem got into the Ivy League Harvard at the age of 15, where she is currently studying neurobiology — a branch of science that studies the brain — and has been listed among the “World’s 50 Smartest Teenagers.” She was also accepted for admission by 13 other top colleges in the United States, including the MIT, Princeton, Columbia, and six Ivy League institutions, choosing Harvard, she became one of the youngest students to ever attend the university. She will be graduating in May this year.

Speaking after an introductory speech by Ibraheem at the White House, President Obama stated that “there are a lot of teenagers in the world. Saheela is like one of the 50 smartest ones. That’s pretty smart. And she’s a wonderful young lady. She’s like the State Department and the National Institute of Health all rolled into one. And we are so proud of your accomplishments and all that lies ahead of you. And you reflect our history. Young people like you inspire our future.”

Ibraheem, who skipped two grades in school, said the key to success is figuring out what you love to learn as early as possible, which she did at the young age of five.

“If you are passionate about what you do, and I am passionate about most of these things, especially with math and science, it will work out well,” she told CBS 2s Cindy Hsu. In addition, Ibraheem speaks four languages that include Arabic, Spanish and Latin.

Her mother, Shakirat Ibraheem, said her daughter has been way ahead of the academic game since kindergarten — never cutting corners and trying to do everything on her own. “She’s like always independent,” she said. “I never get to help with her homework because she’d say ‘it’s my work mommy, not yours.’”

Ibraheem’s recognition and reception was part of the “Black History Month” celebration in the US, which comes up in February. The “Black History Month”, takes root from the activities of the “Association for the Study of African American Life and History.” Every year, Americans set aside the month of February to celebrate the central role that African-Americans have played in every aspect of American life especially the march for freedom and equality, jobs and justice, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, and some profound contributions African-Americans make in the American culture.

Present at the evening event were members of the US Congress, including Leader Nancy Pelosi, and members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Jonathan promised that awardees who would be absolved into the Federal Civil Service were those who have not yet been employed by their state governments.

The minister of education, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau has expressed the current administration’s effort towards ensuring quality teaching and learning

Speaking in the 2015 Education World Forum in London recently, Mall Shekarau said the education sector was being revamped by the present administration.

“The current administration has made funds available to tertiary institutions across all levels to cater for the needed infrastructure and facilities that would enhance the teaching and learning processes.

“Education is the core of the transformation agenda and access and quality are the key goals of the education sector.

“The quality of teachers has fallen over the years as a result of the challenge of attracting best brains into the profession.

“Most teachers at the basic education level take the profession as transit points while awaiting better opportunities.’’

Shekarau further said that the Federal Government was addressing the challenges of low quality of teachers by paying priority attention to the profession which had suffered neglect in the past.

According to him, the National Teachers’ Summit slated for the first quarter of this year, will address the challenges of teachers’ recruitment, development and retention.

The 2015 matriculation ceremony of the University of Ibadan (UI) Distance Learning Centre has been scheduled to hold on Monday, 2nd March, 2015 while the orientation program holds on Tuesday, 3rd and Wednesday, 4th March, 2015.

According to the University’s Director of Public Communication, Mr. Olatunji Oladejo, the events will hold in the International Conference Centre of the University as from 9: 00am each day.

Mr. Oladejo stated that about 6,000 fresh students admitted to various courses offered by the Centre are expected to matriculate this year.

The University of Uyo (UNIUYO) School of Postgraudate Studies has published the admission list of candidates offered provisional admission into postgraduate programmes for the 2014/2015 academic session.

The published list has been uploaded on the school’s website.

The Yobe state Government said over 15,000 students of the state have benefited from the state scholarship scheme as they are enrolled in various institutions of learning within and outside the country in 2014.

The  Executive Chairman, Yobe State Scholarship Board, Alhaji Ibrahim Toshia disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Damaturu.

“This is part of efforts by Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam’s administration to ensure that Yobe indigenes acquire the best education within and outside the country to enable them realise their potentials,” Toshia said.

He said that the measure would enable indigenes of the state acquire the best possible knowledge, skills and training needed to play a part in moving the country forward.

Toshia said out of 15,745 beneficiaries last year, 15,744 students were enrolled in various institutions of learning in Benue, Kano, Borno and Kaduna states.

The chairman added that other recipients were absorbed by the Nigerian Law School for which the government paid over N300 million.

Toshia listed other beneficiaries to include 17 Ph.D, 39 Masters of Science and 40 medical students who were enrolled in universities overseas and who received N360 million.

He said that the state government through the scholarship board had so far spent over N2 billion to settle students’ bursaries since 2007.

Toshia said that the current administration in the state was committed to supporting students in every possible way to enable them acquire university degrees.

He advised the beneficiaries to make good use of the “golden opportunity” provided by the state government to assist them acquire qualitative education across the globe.

FG Approves 9 New Private Universities

The Federal Executive Council on Wednesday, February 25, approved the issuance of operating licenses to nine new private Universities in Nigeria.

In a meeting chaired by Vice-President Namadi Sambo, the council highlighted that once the operating licenses are issued to the newly approved universities, the number of private Universities in the country will rise to 60.

Speaking with journalists after the council meeting, The Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, listed the new private universities as:

Augustine University, Ilara, Lagos State; Chrisland University, Owode, Ogun State; Christopher University, Mowe, Ogun State; Hallmark University, Ijebu Itele, Ogun State; Kings University, Ode Omu, Osun State; Michael and Cecilia Ibru University, Orode, Delta State; Mountain Top University, Ogun State, Ritman University, Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State and Summit University, Offa, Kwara State.

Addressing the excessive tuition fees of private universities, the Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau, said it is not the responsibility of the federal government to regulate fees charged since private universities are run like other private organizations.

He said the Federal Government would only ensure that the standard of education in private schools is of minimum standards.

“As far as government is concerned, all Federal Government universities are tuition-free. Whatever the universities are charging are so minimal for some day-to-day activities: games fees, union fees and some other fees.

“Of recent, I had cause to ask the NUC to regulate a kind of minimum (fee) because there is a university that charged as low as N20,000, N15,000. Some charge N30,000 to N80,000 or so which is a composition of a number of different kinds of fees. But basically, no university owned by government is charging tuition fee.

“But the private universities are like any other private institutions. All that is the responsibility of government is to ensure that the standards are maintained.

“We are to ensure that they are operating within the minimum required standard, and that is the responsibility of the NUC in terms of their facilities, staffing and so on,” Mr. Shekarau said.

Meanwhile, it would be recalled that the first global rankings of universities in the new year were published earlier this month with some very curious results for Nigerian universities.

According to Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, the Covenant University, Ota, made an impressive step forward, stormed the TOP 15 of African Universities and became #1 in Nigeria.

Babcock University have become the first private university in Nigeria to adopt eLearning for its academic programs.

The prestigious university , last week signed an agreement with Edutech Advanced Business Solutions, a private education technology company championing eLearning in Nigeria, to deploy eLearning solutions for some of its programs.

Speaking at the ceremony, the President/Vice Chancellor of Babcock, Prof. James Kayode Makinde, said: “eLearning is the way of the future and we are delighted to be a part of it. It is a significant day for Babcock, and not just Babcock, but for Nigeria as well because this development makes education accessible, available and affordable. The eLearning programme would also allow Babcock quadruple its student population whilst still maintaining existing infrastructure because students will be able to have access to education without necessarily being in the classroom.”

According to the General Manager of Edutech, Prof. Abiola Awosika, the company is “committed to revolutionizing education in Africa by taking education from the conventional classroom experience to a virtual platform thereby eliminating the challenges of time and space.”

“We are working with schools across Nigeria to provide the vital logistical components of their online programs, including comprehensive student support services from orientation to enrolment and through to graduation; as well as practical learning experiences within distant communities around the country.” Prof. Awosika added.

 A 300-level student of the Department of Plant Biology, Miss Dolapo Ibiyemi, has returned N28, 000, which was mistakenly credited into her bank account by the University.

''When I was in 100Level, I paid for hostel accommodation but didn't print out the receipt and other forms. So, I didn't get the Hostel slot because I didn't have the receipt and form to back up my allocation. And the school authority said they would refund the money and they refunded it twice.'' she told the school news body, Unilorin Bulletin.

She added, ''I just felt it's not my money and I won't have peace of mind if I spent it''.

When asked if anybody influenced her decision to return the money, she said, “My parents told me to return it. I am returning it because I want to have peace of mind''.

In his remarks, the Dean of Student Affairs, Prof. Abayomi Omotesho, noted that the student's behaviour has attested to the fact that University of Ilorin is better by far, not just in learning but also in character.
