ASUU is against UNILAG's change of name - Lagos Chairman

Follow @NaijaTalkative

The Lagos State Chairman of Academic Staff Union of Universities [ASUU] - Dr Karo Ogbinaka made it clear that the association will strongly resist the recent change of University of Lagos (UNILAG) to Moshood Abiola University (MAU)


We are resisting it, all the unions and the students will resist it, the Alunmus will resist it.
The truth about the whole thing is that it shows the level of intelligence of those people in government. Nobody will change Harvard's name, nobody will change Cambridge's name to Winston Churchill University. University of Lagos is a brand, for 50 years. The first university established by Act of Parliament and one man trying to score cheap political point.
When people go outside and you ask them what university are you from? What name will you pronounce? They'll ask is it a new university? Is it the name of a toothpaste? It's a senseless thing and are going to resist it. He said.

Thanks to LindaIkeji for sharing this.

5 students arrested for possessing charms and alcohol during childrens' day festival

Follow @NaijaTalkative

In Abeokuta, men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, arrested no fewer than five secondary schools students at M.K.O. Abiola Stadium, the venue of the Children’s Day Celebration, for being in possession of charms and intoxicated drinks.

The arrest came after Governor Ibikunle Amosun had warned students to shun any anti-social activities but to be upright in all their undertakings.

Amosun, while addressing the students, admonished them to begin the writing of their own history, so that their tomorrow could be assured.

He said: “As leaders of tomorrow, you must strive to be upright in all your undertakings. You should cultivate the virtues of discipline, decency, seriousness of purpose, focus, and respect for constituted authority and appreciation of dignity of labour.”

Also, Governor Olusegun Mimiko said one of the notable achievements of his government is the enthronement of peace and order in the state under which the children can be trained to actualise their potentials.

Speaking at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Arcade, Akure, venue of the celebration, Gov. Mimiko said, “children of Ondo State are being exposed to a culture of peace, security, healthy, modern and clean environment as opposed to the ambience of insecurity, intolerance and violence of the era gone by.”

During the Children’s Day parade and rally at the Police College Parade Ground, GRA, Ikeja, the Lagos State Government announced the introduction of inclusive schools for the physically- challenged students in the state which is aimed at reducing the number of out-of-school-children and also giving them a sense of belonging.

Gov. Babatunde Fashola: “There are 31 of such inclusive schools carved out of existing schools in the state and children should be their brother’s keepers by helping the physically- challenged in their schools.”

Meantime, the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, has flagged off the registration of compulsory free nursery/universal basic education for the 2012/13 school year.

Pointing out that the exercise will help reduce the number of OOSC in the state, SUBEB Board Secretary, Mrs. Titi Oluseye, said plans had been concluded to introduce the free mid-day meals so as to keep registered children in schools.

Charly boy says he's gay and Illuminati's head in Nigeria

Follow @NaijaTalkative




Controversial maverick entertainment personality, Charles Oputa, better known as Charly Boy, has set another record with his confession that he is gay. By so confessing, he becomes only the second publicly known gay man in Nigeria.

This is a record that Pastor Rowland Macaulay beat him to by being the first Nigerian to openly come out and even establish a church that catered for only gays. Those who know Charly Boy well however say he’s not someone who likes being a follower. He’s always a leader in everything he does and he’s now ready to take his rightful leadership position in the gay world. Continue to read…

In an interview with a new publication, Danfo Express, Charly Boy declared that he is gay and not ashamed of being gay.

Even as he made other disclosures about himself, he didn’t forget to add that he is the head of the Illuminati in Nigeria, the same Illuminati that people accuse Jay-Z, D’Banj and Don Jazzy of being members and they keep denying membership. While his audacious revelations might seem like a publicity stunt on his part, let’s not forget the popular saying ‘there’s no smoke with-out fire’.

Man killed for riding on a non-commissioned road in Ogun State

Follow @NaijaTalkative

Tragedy struck, yesterday, after 15 officials of Ogun state Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, TRACE, in Abeokuta, beat a man identified as Samuel Adoke, to death for driving on a road that is yet to be commissioned.
An eye-witness told Vanguard that the incident occurred about 9a.m. at Oke-Sokori when the TRACE officials flagged down Adoke who was ridding an Okada on the yet to be commissioned six-lane road, but he allegedly ignored them.

Vanguard gathered that the officials, in annoyance, pursued the man, who reportedly maintained his ground that there was no other route through which he could access his house except passing through the road which had been barricaded. The source added that the officials claimed the man ignored the road diversion signs placed on the six-lane road expected to be commissioned by Governor Ibikunle Amosun on Monday.
The TRACE officials were also said to have immediately fled the area after the death of Adoke,a father of two and an employee of a new generation bank in Abeokuta.

Leader of the TRACE’s team that allegedly committed the crime was identified as Gabriel Odunlami while the squad was identified as Ranger squad. One of the TRACE officials who allegedly killed the man was, however, apprehended by the police and was said to have been remanded at the Ibara Police Divisional headquarters in Abeokuta. The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident after efforts to get the Corps Commandant of TRACE , Ayo Sangofadeji, to comment failed. Adejobi, however, stressed that Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Okoye Ikhemefuna had ordered full investigation into the matter. Meanwhile, the Ogun State Police Command, yesterday, said it arrested four armed robbery suspects with seven pump actions, 26 AK 47 magazines, 20 live cartridges, 328 AK ammunition and charms in the Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
The command also apprehended three suspects with vandalised NITEL cables in Iperu, in Remo- North Local Government Area. The Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, gave these figures in Abeokuta, the state capital. Adejobi named the suspected robbers as Ugochukwu Anih, Ndubuisi Kingsley, Ismail Raman and Ayomide Adedoyin while Balogun Abiodun, Lateef Muritala and Sheu Sulaiman were the suspected vandals. Adejobi said the suspects would be charged to court after investigation.

Snake found in a moving commercial bus in Lagos

Follow @NaijaTalkative

There was pandemonium on Wednesday along Apapa Expressway in Lagos when a commercial bus suddenly halted on the highway.
It was a funny-not funny issue when eye-witnesses discovered that passengers where being ejected and it was a snake that led to it.
A woman (name withheld) who sat at the back of the vehicle said she noticed something moving round her leg and when she bent to look, Behold it was a snake!
She then raised the alarm which made the bus driver halt and let passengers down including himself.
They later began to search for the snake to kill but could only get the tail to cut as at the time of reporting this story.

Borno State government drops N100m for onions

Follow @NaijaTalkative

The Borno State Government said on Saturday that it had released N100 million for the purchase of surplus onions produced by farmers in the state.

Alhaji Zanna Mustapha, the Deputy Governor of the state dropped the hint in Maiduguri, while inspecting some bags of onions, which had been purchased and kept at the government’s central stores.

Mustapha explained that the gesture was in fulfilment of the government’s promise to purchase the surplus onions to prevent further price depreciation. He said that the onions would be be re-bagged and transported to some parts of the country where there was high demand for the commodity. The deputy governor also said that part of the onions would be distributed to schools in the state for students feeding.

Also speaking, Malam Inuwa Kubo, the Commissioner of Education told the deputy governor that the onions were being handled properly to prevent rot. Kubo, who doubles as the chairman of the committee for the purchase of the onions, said that the committee had only purchased the commodity from farmers in Dikwa, Marte and Ngala, allin Borno.

“We are expecting produce from other farmers in a couple of days time. We have also hired about 10 persons to take care of the onions by sorting out bad ones from the rest to prevent contamination,” he said.

It will be recalled that Gov. Kashim Shettima last month approved the purchase of the surplus onions produced by the farmers after he visited some of the farms at Marte.

The price of an onion bag had fallen from about N2,000 to N600 due mainly to surplus production and absence of markets.(NAN)
