National Association of Nigeria Students, NANS, has declared Monday lecture-free day for all students across the federation.

This is in protest against the continuous refusal of the Federal Government to accede to the request of the Academic Staff Union of Universitirs (ASUU).

The association which spoke through its National Public Relation officer, Comrade Azeez Adeyemi at the secretariat of the Ogun State National Union of Journalists described the ruling government as a government of lies and crooks.

Speaking on the lingering strike of the ASUU, the association also attacked the governor of Ekiti state, Dr Kayode Fayemi for his comment on professors’ salary, describing the comment of the governor as sad.

“It is sad to hear the governor of Ekiti state saying that a professor is earning more than a sitting Governor. The point is that Governor Kayode Fayemi is carried away by the masses’ tax and public funds he enjoys; he also failed to read between the lines to hear the demands of ASUU.

“NANS will like to enlighten Governor Kayode Fayemi and the Nigerian government that ASUU is not asking for too much by demanding for revitalization of public universities and the issue of University Staff Schools, among many others things.

“NANS is however saying that the government needs to create a conducive environment for learning and research because this is where the strength of the country rest on,” he said.

South Africa vs Nigeria: Buhari Reacts As Super Eagles Qualify for AFCON 2019

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria over their qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigeria on Saturday qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, following a 1-1 draw with South Africa.

Gernot Rohr’s men went ahead through Samuel Kalu, in what appeared like an own goal before the hosts levelled.

There were no goals in the second half.

Buhari, reacting in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, commended the Eagles for their performance.

He assured the Eagles of the federal government’s support going forward.

The statement read: “President Buhari congratulates Super Eagles on their qualification for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations following the score draw against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in Johannesburg Saturday.

“President joins millions of football-loving Nigerians in commending the team for their spirited and disciplined performance against a very formidable opponent which earned them qualification with the final match against Seychelles a mere formality.

“Having keenly followed the senior national football team’s progress in the qualifying stages, President Buhari is enthused by their confidence, sense of patriotism and professionalism, and commends these attributes to other Nigerians.

“He equally commends the coaching crew, NFF and the Supporters Club, especially Nigerians residing in S/Africa who turned out in great numbers to cheer the players, for a job well-done, and assures them of the unflinching support of the FG going forward.”

New Minimum Wage: Fayemi Speaks On Condition That Will Make Governors Pay N30,000

New Minimum Wage: Fayemi Speaks On Condition That Will Make Governors Pay N30,000

The Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on Saturday said that the Federal Government needed to address the current revenue allocation formula, to enable state governments pay the new minimum wage being requested by workers.
Fayemi spoke when he received the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Mr Ayuba Wabba, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office, in Ado-Ekiti.

He said that Ekiti, which receives one of the lowest allocations in the country, would require extra N2bn monthly to be able to pay.
The governor, who noted that the N30,000 minimum wage was not a comfortable living wage for workers, said he was convinced that governors would pay if the Federal Government creates the enabling environment for them to do so.

He, however, suggested a collective approach by the labour leadership, the government and the general public.
Fayemi said the issue of affordability was key in paying the proposed minimum wage

The governor said Ekiti had always been paying above the national minimum wage as the state was paying N19, 350 as against the N18,000 minimum.
He, however, said that for Ekiti State to pay the new N30,000 minimum wage, it would need N2 billion in addition to the current wage bill of N2.6 billion, totalling N4.6bn.

This, he said, was the case in many other states, disclosing that Ekiti earns averagely N3bn federal allocation monthly.
“I am not holding brief for
the governors because I am the youngest among them, having only come to office barely a month ago.

”So, I cannot speak on what has transpired in your negotiation in the course of this tripartite committee,” he said
Fayemi said if he were, however, to put himself in the shoes of his colleagues, given the fact on ground in Ekiti, he believes it was only a question of affordability, ability to pay.

“As long as we have the revenue allocation formula that we have in the country, even in states where you have willing partners and comrades that are not going to contend the N30,000 figure, if nothing is done about current revenue allocation, this will be tough on states.

“In fact, this N30,000 is not even enough, Mr President, I don’t know anyone who can really live comfortably on N30,000, let alone the N18,000 we are currently paying.
“I think we need a collective approach to this beyond the game of numbers.
“The workers are very critical components to the productive base of our country, because it is the human capital and it has to be motivated human capital.
“It has to be an enthusiastic human capital that can deliver the goods to the populace,” Fayemi said.

South Africa vs Nigeria: Four Things We Learnt

South Africa vs Nigeria: Four Things We Learnt

On Saturday, Nigeria played a 1-1 with South Africa at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

Samuel Kalu’s cross was deflected in, before the Bafana Bafana equalized with a well-worked goal.

The result however ensured the Super Eagles qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

So, what are the things we learnt from the game?

1. The African champions are back:Nigeria have qualified for the tournament for the first time in six years. They won it in 2013, but failed to qualify for the next two editions in 2015 and 2017.

2. Rohr has to be more reactive: To start with, this game did not need a three-man defense. And when that was obvious during the game, the German failed to make quick changes, especially with Iheanacho and Iwobi not at the races.

3. Midfield hard men missed: The Eagles were without Wilfred Ndidi, John Mikel Obi and Onazi Ogenyi. John Ogu and Oghenekaro Etebo didn’t quite provide the steel needed to keep the South Africans at bay.

4. Between South Africa and Libya: Nigeria have qualified for the AFCON with a game to spare. And it is against the group’s whipping boys, Seychelles. The more significant fixture will be between South Africa and Libya for the second ticket from the group.

Immaculate Kembabazi had just completed her Bachelors in Business Administration, BBA at Makerere University Business school (MUBs) and was due to graduate in January with honours – it’s quite tragic to see that her dreams have been burnt in flames of jealousy.

Neighbours and colleagues on Friday morning, found Kembazi burnt in her rented room in Bugolobi, a city suburb. Her hands tied with ropes and several marks on her body suggesting a spirited fight, she would later give up before her tormentor tied her, set her on fire and locked the room to condemn her to a long lonely painful death.

According to the deceased’s sister who preferred anonymity, Kembabazi’s life could have been ended by her estranged boyfriend, one Solomon who has been complaining about Kembabazi’s behavior of bringing friends to her room.

It is this that could have given birth to pangs of jealousy that prompted Solomon to hatch a death plan for Kembabazi.

However, other witnesses interviewed claim that, the deceased had refused to move in with her boyfriend who has been paying her tuition, a move that prompted action from him.

Immaculate’s lifeless body would later be taken to Mulago Hospital for inspection.

Falana Gives Linda Ikeji 48 Hours To Retract ‘Fake News'

John Abayomi

Lagos Lawyer, Mr Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has given Linda Ikeji, a popular blogger, 48 hours to retract the “fake news” published against John Abayomi, a seasoned journalist or risk a court action over the “false and malicious story endangering” the life of an innocent one.

Abayomi through his lawyer, Falana and Falana’s Chambers claimed that the publication with the headline, “LIB Exclusive: Meet the owner of Instablog9ja -John Abayomi” has put his life and that of his family in danger.

In the letter delivered to the blogger on Friday, a copy of which was sighted by Tribune Online, Linda was asked to tender an unreserved apology within 48 hours or risk legal action.

Linda in the said publication had claimed that “the owner of instablog9ja is John Abayomi, a former online editor of Vanguard news and current online editor of Punch.”

However, Falana said the statement is untrue and unfounded, but only calculated to lower Abayomi’s esteem and damage his reputation and professional career.

“Your publication has put him in the harm’s way, thereby endangering his life and the lives of his family members. It has also attracted a lot of negative reactions from members of the public including celebrities who has been eager to know the face behind the blunt and sarcastic blog because of the method of reportage.

“Your mendacious publication was clearly actuated by malice in that it was deliberately done to portray our client as an imposter, a fraudster and a blackmailer.

“In the light of the foregoing, we have our client’s firm instructions to demand an unqualified apology together with a retraction of the libelous publication in the edition of your blog (Linda Ikeji blog) in addition to having the retraction published on Instagram.

“However, if you fail or refuse to accede to our client’s demands within 48 hours of the receipt of this letter, we shall have no option than to initiate civil proceedings against you at the Lagos State High Court without further recourse to you,” reads the letter which was signed by Chukwuma Onwuemene (ESQ) for Falana and Falana’s Chambers.

A reliable source had also rubbished reports that board members of Punch Newspapers met over Linda Ikeji’s publication.

“It is totally untrue. There was no such meeting. Everybody close to him, including his employers are aware that Linda Ikeji’s publication was completely untrue,” the source said.
