ASUU Strike: Senator Proffers Lasting Solution

The Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray-Bruce, has suggested how the federal government can end the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.

Bruce said that privatisation of federal and state universities will put a stop to continuous ASUU strikes.
The Bayelsa lawmaker made this known in a post on his Twitter page.

The tweet read: “I suggest the federal and state governments should privatize the universities that they own.

“ This will bring in genuine investors and bring an end to the continuous ASUU strikes.”

ASUU had embarked on a nationwide strike on November 4, to press home their demands.

The lecturers are demanding for the implementation of agreements reached with the Federal Government, including the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoA).

They are also demanding an improved welfare package and better funding of the university system among other issues.

The striking lecturers had engaged the Federal Government on series of negotiations but all ended in deadlock.

Uproar As Man Discovers That His Wife’s Lecturer Impregnated Her

The discovery by a Zimbabwean that he was after all not the real father of his “son” provoked shock.

The Zimbabwean man has discovered that his four-year-old son is not actually his own but that of his wife’s lecturer who impregnated her.

According to reports, Lovemore Mlambo had always suspected that the boy wasn’t his son, because he didn’t bear any resemblance to him. He had also refused to register the birth of the boy due to the same reason.

This prompted him to eventually do a DNA test, which confirmed his suspicions.  The DNA revealed that he wasn’t the biological father of the boy.

Mlambo also revealed that he had come across messages on his wife’s phone from another man who invited her for drinks and lunch.

He confessed that his love for his wife deteriorated after the birth of the child. According to Lovemore, the child bears resemblance to his wife’s lecturer, whom he assumes bedded his wife.

In response, Angel refused to identify the real father of the child, instead stating that she had been faithful to her husband since they have been together.

New Minimum Wage: FG Gives Fresh Update On Implementing N30,000

New Minimum Wage: FG Gives Fresh Update On Implementing N30,000

The Federal Government on Thursday said it is working towards early implementation of new minimum wage proposed by the Organised Labour.

Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) made this known on Thursday in Abuja at the opening of a one-day symposium on the 25th anniversary of the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC) which has “Overcoming the Challenges of
Compensation and Productivity in Nigeria” as its theme.

Represented by Mr Olusegun Adekunle, the Permanent Secretary, General Services Office, Office of the SGF, the SGF said that the present administration was committed to the welfare of Nigerian workers, NAN reports.

He said “I wish to point out that the focus of the national minimum income wage is on government employees, this critical sector ought not to be left behind and nobody will be left behind.

“Such employees are also dominantly found in the informal sector and the small scale organisations.

“However, it is important to know that the revision of the minimum wage should be taken through due process and all key stakeholders carried along.”

Mustapha said that the pay relativity question could not be resolved without the development and implementation of anew job evaluation scheme.

He, therefore, urged the NSIWC to commence the process, adding that government had also observed that productivity needed to take the centre stage in wage determination.

He also urged the commission to leverage on the pilot schemes it was working on in collaboration with the National Productivity Centre to raise a production team in the public service.

The government scribe said that public office holders must bear in mind that remuneration packages for their various offices were appropriately spelt out in the law.

He added that it would be inappropriate for anyone to allow himself to be paid higher than what the law stipulates, noting that “any infraction reported by NSIWC in the course of carrying out its mandate shall be investigated and punished by the anti-graft agencies infuture.”

According to him, government is concerned about the spate of strikes in the country as it affects the economy over the last decade, especially the public sector.

He called on labour unions to resist the urge to resort to work stoppages without exhausting alternatives and more peaceful options for conflict resolution.

He said that the Federal Government remained committed to the stability and development of the economy and service delivery to the public as stakeholders in the nation.

Jubrin Of Sudan: Wole Soyinka Finally Speaks On Dead, Cloned Buhari

Jubrin Of Sudan: Wole Soyinka Finally Speaks On Dead, Cloned Buhari

Nobel Laureate and iconic playwright, Professor Wole Soyinka, has spoken out about the report making the rounds about dead and cloned President Muhammadu Buhari.

PALITO MEDIA report that while in Poland, President Buhari had cried out about claims that he was dead and cloned.

Soyinka was addressing a cross section of audience at Freedom Park in an event marking the 70th anniversary of human rights and worldwide reading for press freedom in memory of Jamal Khashoggi.

He also stressed on the need to take the issue of stolen identity with seriousness.

He said, “Recently, we have a situation in Nigeria and that is the issue of cloning President Muhammadu Buhari. We have people who have taken that issue seriously.

“These were people that one can never believe to accept such considering their level of intelligence.

“When Buhari went to Poland, I said what a coincidence because I hope while he was there, he will be able to sort-out his identity and there will be a report on the return of his identity.

“Poland appears to be the centre for Nigerians settlers with stolen identity.”

Soyinka, who also cried out that his identity was stolen on Facebook in Poland, said upon discovery that his identity was being used in Poland, he visited the country and demanded that the page using his identity on Facebook be pulled down.

He added, “But he (operator of the business) refused, claiming that he has authority to do that. In my name, this fellow sells and buys things which I don’t even use.”

Champions League: Read What Marcelo Said After Real Madrid’s 3-0 Defeat To CSK Moscow

Champions League: Read What Marcelo Said After Real Madrid’s 3-0 Defeat To CSK Moscow

Real Madrid vice-captain, Marcelo has spoken up on his side’s 3-0 defeat by CSK Moscow in the Champions League played on Wednesday night.

Three goals from Fyodor Chalov, Georgi Shchennikov and Arnor Sigurdsson ensured the Russian side defeated the Champions League holders at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Marcelo, however, said Los Blancos’ defeat by Moscow was not an ‘attitude problem’.

“I don’t think it’s an attitude problem,” Marcelo was quoted by Goal as saying at post-match.

“We never take to the pitch with the wrong attitude but perhaps some of our play may have been interpreted like that against CSKA.

“You always have to play with desire at Real Madrid. There’s a long time until the last 16, we must improve and change the image we’ve given of ourselves. We have to be motivated and flying high at the Bernabeu.”

Marcelo added: “We always want to win and give a good account of ourselves but sadly we weren’t able to do that. We had several chances in the first half, we had so many shots on goal, but they had three and scored three goals and they deserve the win.

“We have to keep working hard. Every game is different, you play one way, with one team-mate or another and these defeats happen in football.”

Marcelo will hope to lead Real Madrid to victory when they tackle Rayo Vallecano on Saturday in the La Liga fixture.

EPL: Emery Reveals Number Of Players Arsenal Will Sign In January

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has revealed that the club will sign a centre-back when the transfer window opens in January.

Emery said this ahead of his side’s Europa League clash with Qarabag FK on Thursday night.

The Spaniard believes it would be a ‘good option’ for the Gunners to sign a centre-back after the North London club have had trouble with the position so far this season.

“I think if we can take one player to help us at centre-back, I think it’s a good option,” Emery was quoted by Daily Cannon as saying in a pre-match press conference.

“The transfer window is not easy. Laurent Koscielny is coming back and for the team, it’s very important he is coming back.

“Then we are going to wait and see how Konstantinos Mavropanos is improving with his injuries because he is also a centre-back who can help us.”

Emery added: “Another option we can play with two, with three, and (full-backs) Nacho Monreal and (Stephan) Lichtsteiner can play in this position.

“I prefer to use, if we can, a specialist centre-back.”

Commissioner In Police Custody For Allegedly Defiling Teenage Girl

Commissioner In Police Custody For Allegedly Defiling Teenage Girl

A former Commissioner for Information in Cross River State who was also former Chairman of Calabar Municipal Council, Mr. Edet Okon Asim, has landed in police custody for allegedly defiling a 15-year-old girl (name withheld).

NEWSMEN gathered that the suspect had been defiling the girl for three years running. The girl was allegedly lured into an illicit relationship with the former commissioner, who was said to be dating the mother, but the relationship with the teenager reportedly witnessed two previous abortions.

Sadly, the third abortion, which was said to have been with the knowledge of her mother, whose name was simply given as Mrs. Stella, allegedly damaged her uterus, a development that has brought the matter into public glare.

It was further gathered that Mrs. Stella, who has been Asim’s mistress and had allegedly consented to the relationship between him and her daughter, has also been arrested.

A neighbour, who pleaded for anonymity, said that Mrs. Stella was married to a popular Calabar-based pastor, now late, who was a good friend to Asim and had two children for the deceased clergyman.

“The first one (girl) happened to be the victim while the second is a boy. Not long after the pastor died, Ms Stella was believed to have gone into relationship with Mr. Asim whom she called her “Destiny Saver”.

“The victim’s mother, who is said to be a caterer, maintains apartments in Uyo, and Calabar where the victim stays and attends the Federal Government Girls’ College, Calabar,” she added.

“The mother had reportedly been warning her daughter against opening up on the matter and collaborated with the suspect in the serial abuse.

“And after the third abortion had been carried out by a quack, her womb became perforated. The girl’s teacher, whose name was shielded, was said to have found out and shared the story on a WhatsApp page where human rights activist and the founder of Project Alert, a non-governmental organization, which specialises in handling such cases, Mrs. Josephine Chukwuma, is a subscriber.”

Chukwuma was said to have swung into action and contacted the Basic Rights Council Initiative founded by child rights activist, Barrister James Ibor, which also informed the police and this led to the arrest of Mr. Asim and Ms. Stella.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Irene Ugbo confirmed to NEWSMEN on phone on Thursday that there was a case reported against the former commissioner.

The incident was lodged at the Airport division, and that the matter would be transferred to the State Command at Diamond Hill in Calabar.

“Yes, they are in our custody. Edet Okon Asim and a woman were dating each other and later the man started dating the daughter. Before now, she has done two abortions for the man. The woman seems to have been using the man to collect money.

“This is the third abortion that has resulted to complication. The case was reported at the Airport police station. We are going to transfer the case to the State CID,” she stated.
