The Delta State Government has given out N500 million to a hundred beneficiaries of the 2013 First Class Graduate Scholarship Scheme in the state

Speaking during the award of scholarships to the beneficiaries in Asaba, the Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, said that it was impossible for a cultist to bag a first class in the university.

He explained that the principle behind the scholarship scheme was that the IQ of a student that made first class was high and that the society should not place any impediment on the youth with such IQ to proceed for a doctoral degree just because the person lacked the funds.

“This informed our administration’s decision to inaugurate the scholarship scheme’’ the Governor disclosed.

Ahead of the presidential poll President Elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) has pledged to focus his attention on the lost glory of our nation’s educational system.

This was published in a public letter titled ‘my covenant’. The letter particulars what Nigerians should expect from Buhari’s first 100 days in office.

Excerpts from the letter reads

“I believe that our education system must prepare our children for the responsibilities of citizenship and prepare our youths to contribute to the development of our country. Therefore, I shall focus on restoring the lost glory of our education by implementing reforms that will bring quality back into our schools and position our universities and polytechnics to provide market-relevant skills to our youths.

I pledge to:

· Embark on a program of mass mobilization to ensure that all children of school age, no matter where they may reside in our country, and no matter the social conditions of their parents, are in school. Working in co-operation with the State Governments, we shall make the required investments in infrastructure, learning materials, nutrition and children healthcare. To this end, UBEC Fund will be reviewed to ensure greater efficiency in utilization.

· Provide on-the-job retraining opportunities for existing teachers at both the basic and secondary levels while providing the right incentives to keep teachers in the classrooms and attract bright young men and women to take up career in teaching.

· Work with other levels of government and through relevant government agencies to allocate resources to schools while strengthening community participation in school management.

· Implement a comprehensive review of the goal and content of our secondary education to ensure that it also serves the purpose of skills acquisition and fits purpose.

· Set up Colleges of Skills and Enterprise to replace the old technical colleges. This will be done with direct participation from relevant industry and professional groups in the private sector. Based on local market demands, each of the colleges will focus on high job demand sectors of the economy such as agriculture, ICT, telecommunications, entertainment, construction, oil and gas and sports.

· Establish special purpose fund for a Secondary School level education.

· Improve the competitiveness of our universities and polytechnics and position them at the heart of the national productivity, innovation and enterprise.

· Pursue a policy of non-discrimination between the universities and the polytechnics .”

Kogi State University Students Vow To Vote Out PDP Aggrieved students of the Kogi State University, Anyigba, have vow to vote out the Peoples Democratic Party in the state in the April 11 elections. The students are lamenting over the one-month old strike embarked upon by lecturers of the institution. It would be recalled that the lecturers of the state-owned varsity downed tools in February in protest against the state government’s non-implementation of the new salary structure agreed upon by the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities during their last nationwide strike in 2014. The students, who spoke with our correspondent in the state capital, Lokoja, and the school’s host town, Anyigba, on Tuesday, said they were tired of sitting at home while watching their colleagues in other schools continued with their academic work. Ododo Reuben, who resides in the state capital and studies Economics, said nothing would stop the students from voting out the Peoples Democratic Party of the state. He said, “I will work for the opposition to emerge in this state. I am tired of the PDP administration in Kogi State as a student. “Strike in higher institutions of learning has become peculiar to only PDP controlled states. I believe that if we have a change in government, this incessant industrial action will stop. “In the next governorship election, we the students of KSU are changing our leaders. We are tired of staying at home.” For Ogwu Hassan, a student of Biochemistry, the Governor has been “too silent” on their plight. Hassan added, “The state government has not helped our cause at all. The Governor hasn’t made any move to end this and it is really sad that we, the students, bear the brunt of all these. “It is a pity that the governorship election is not coming up next week. I would have voted him out for another person who loves education. “But that does not affect the State Assembly elections as I will canvass for the voting out of the PDP.” However, Grace Ochigbo, a medical student, appealed to both parties in the strike to sheath their swords in the best interest of the students.

 

Following the suspension of 4weeks industrial action embarked on by Ekiti State University, EKSU, ASUU Chapter.

 

The Vice Chancellor of the institution Prof. Oladipo Aina, has re-affirmed in a phone interview with news men that ASUU have decided to “suspend” the strike in the best interest of the students.

 

When asked about examination, the VC said ” since the main reason ASUU suspended the strike was to allow students write exams, so we’ve no other business but conduct an examination immediately. When questioned about the students preparedness toward the emergency exams.

 

He further added ” emergency exams? They’ve been preparing for this exams for over 7weeks. I don’t think it would be an emergency exams. As students, they should imbibe the motto of boys scout which said “Be Prepared”. I’m sure most of my students who went home didn’t go home for jamboree but to be studious” when asked about the date for exams, he said ” you know we are lagging far behind, this semester has started since October, 2014.

 

This is April, 2015. I’m sure the students would be back to school from tomorrow and most of them if not all would be back to school by Sunday if all things go well with the election. All in all, I don’t think it would be a bad idea if we start the examinations next Wednesday.

Though I’m not saying we are starting on or not starting on Wednesday. I would only implore the students who haven’t paid there tuition fee to do so between Monday and Tuesday to be on a safe side”. The Vice Chancellor furthered appreciated ASUU for agreeing to suspend the strike in the interest of the students.

IMT Gets Support From French Embassy

The Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu will receive support from France for the teaching of French language in the institution.

The French attaché for Cooperation in Education and Deputy to Head of Service Nigeria, Daniel Rignault, who made this known on Monday, said that there was the need to ensure that students learnt and spoke French effectively.

Rignault had led a delegation from the embassy and the Centre for French Teaching and Development, Enugu to visit the school.

Rignault pledged to support the department in the provision of resources and logistics to attain its goals.

The Head of Department, Mass Communication, Mr. Chukwudi Anyianuka, who received the team, explained that the fresh move by the embassy would further stimulate the students’ interest in learning the language.

He noted that French was a very important international language, particularly for the member-nations of the Economic Community of West Africa States as well as a language that is indispensable in international news reporting.



The Kano State Government on Tuesday said it had approved over N104 million as tuition fees to 359 state-sponsored students at Al-Qalam University, Katsina.

The state Commissioner for Information, Hajiya Ladidi Garko, said this while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the State Executive Council meeting in Kano.

Garko said the council had also approved N16.5 million for the purchase of tools and equipments for new Technical Colleges in Tofa, Doguwa and Sumaila local government areas.

She also said that the council approved N117 million for the construction of Ceremonial City Tower and landscaping project at Kofar-Naisa in the metropolis.

“The council also approves N1million as medical assistance to victims of Jumat Mosque bomb blast.

“The council further approves N22.7 million for construction of security toll gates at Tumfafi and Dawanau in Kumbotso”, she said.

According to her, another N2.4 million is set aside for the state’s participation at the 2015 Shell/NNPC Cup.

She said the government was more than prepared to reduce the infrastructure deficit in the state and improve the wellbeing of the people. (NAN)
