Image result for FUNAAB final year student dies due to lack of oxygen at FMC AbeokutaA final year student of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, identified as Olaniyi Ashimi, has reportedly died due to lack of oxygen at FMC Abeokuta, Ogun State.
According to Twitter user @sammiee_oj95, the late FUNAAB final year student was rushed to the hospital which also lacks a functioning X-ray machine after an accident. He further disclosed that no one knew the deceased had internal bleeding, and he died due to lack of oxygen at FMC Abeokuta which also had no ambulance to convey him to the hospital he was referred to.

Read the tweet below;
I am tweeting in pain as on Friday I lost a classmate who is a final year student at FUNAAB due to lack of a functional ambulance and #nooxygen at the Federal Medical Center, Abeokuta. Now I still have 5 mates at the same facility…
@MBuhari this people have not been attended to by no one even a nurse in the last 24 hours. This is the lives of Nigerian students at stake. Asides the lack of up to date facilities @ FMC Idi AAbeokuta, there is also a lack of personnel in the complex.
@MBuhari these students would not be in this situation if the Abeokuta to Ibadan road was not a narrow one. Not only is it narrow it is also in a deplorable state. Guys you need to see this road. They had an accident on that road on their way from a conference.
@MBuhari it is so appalling that a federal road is just one lane not just that it is saddening there is no ambulance and #nooxygen in a Federal hospital too. Pls let’s t now to save the others in very critical conditions.
Upon getting to FMC we met the following: 1.Fmc has no functioning xray machine.. crazy right.. 2. They couldn’t even do a proper thorough scan/test for an accident victim…
No tests no scan they continued. For 24 hours no one knew Niyi had an internal bleeding until Friday and he had to be referred to UCH but FMC had no ambulance and worse off #nooxygen to move him to Ibadan… After hours we found a way to move him.

FG, ASUU reach partial agreement
The Federal Government and the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have reached a partial agreement. Dr Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, announced this after a reconciliation meeting on Monday in Abuja
Ngige said the meeting was aimed at finding ways of ending the strike, which commenced on Nov. 5.
He said: “we have finished our deliberation for today. I am happy to report that we touched some areas of understanding in implementation from the Memorandum of Action which we agreed to in 2017.
“Some of these areas we have substantial compliance and some other areas have not been fully dealt with.
“Like the issue of shortfall in salaries of some Federal Universities’ workers and lecturers, ASUU has given a list to the Accountant-General’s Office and we have agreed that by Wednesday that list should be cross-checked by the Presidential Initiative on Continuous Auditing.
“So, the Accountant-General’s Office is to get back to us by Wednesday.
“We also have the issue of Earned allowances, revitalisation, these are issues of 2009 agreement and partial implementation and we have agreed on the modus operandi to look into the fund situation, this is due to low revenue on the part of government. ”
Ngige added that the government was sure to have good information for the striking lecturers.
He said the same situation applied to other allowances, adding: “we have agreed on what we are going to do to make sure that the outstanding amount is handled in a way that all parties will be properly accommodated.
“We also discussed the issue of state universities and agreed also that even if education is on the concurrent list, the universities should be properly funded and staffed so that we do not produce half-baked students from those universities.
“In realisation of this the Ministry of Education will set up a committee, that would engage the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, and the Minister of Education has taken steps in that direction to formalise the interaction.
“Thus discussion  are fruitful and we do hope that in the next adjourned date we would have had the requisite result on the few agreements reached today,” he said. The minister said he hoped with the agreement reached that the union would call off the strike in order for students to go back to school and those who had exams could go and take their exams.
He said the next meeting would be at 4p.m. on Dec. 17. Also speaking, Prof. Abiodun Ogunyemi, ASUU National President, said they had a useful discussion.
“Our own understanding is that we heard promises made on the part of government, we shall await the report on all the issues, which they have made the promises.
“Only after that, we can get back to our members to take a decision,” NAN quoted him as saying.

The National Youth Service Corps has revealed that popular artiste, David Adeleke, aka Davido, was sanctioned for violating camp rules during the mandatory three-week orientation camp, Saturday PUNCH has learnt.
Top sources in the NYSC told Punch correspondents that for “absconding” from the camp during the orientation camp, the Corps had to “dekit” the artiste, which brought to an end his participation in the 2018 Batch ‘B’ Stream II in Lagos State, where he had been posted.
The source said,
“The NYSC was constrained to “dekit” Davido for violating the rules guiding conduct and activities in the camp. As a matter of fact, he absconded because he was away from the camp without permission. That prompted the Corps to issue him a query which was sent from Abuja. So, he is no longer a serving corps member.”
The artiste, violated many of the scheme’s regulations.

Other NYSC bylaws violated by Davido include bringing vehicles into the orientation camp; disclosing official information; engaging in private practice; taking part in partisan politics and reporting late for duty.
However, it was also gathered that he may be remobilised for the scheme.
While replying to a post on Instagram during the week, the artiste had said that his NYSC programme had been terminated. He later deleted the comment from the post made by a friend.

Image result for Buhari approves NYSC, Law School for NOUN graduates.President Muhammadu Buhari has assented to the National Open University Amendment Act, to allow the institution to operate as all other universities in the country.
Apparently, with this assent, the graduates of the NOUN can now participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and the Nigerian Law School.

Presidential Assistant on National Assembly (Senate), Senator Ita Enang announced the assent of the President while addressing State House reporters in Abuja.
“President Buhari has also assented to National Open University Amendment Act, which allows the National Open University to operate as all other universities, having the same power and functions and the same administrative structures eliminating possible discrimination as some use to want to have on its products and programmes.
“It has also allowed the establishment of some centers to be called study centers and given conditions for the establishment of such study centers,” he said.
The National Assembly had passed a bill for An Act to Amend the National Open University Act Cap N6 LFN 1983 (Amendment) Bill 2017’.

NYSC Sanctions Davido for Violated Many of the Scheme’s Rules
The National Youth Service Corps has sanctioned popular artiste, David Adeleke, aka Davido, for violating camp rules during the mandatory three-week orientation camp, Saturday PUNCH has learnt. Top sources in the NYSC told one of our correspondents that for “absconding” from the camp during the orientation camp, the Corps had to “dekit” the artiste, which brought to an end his participation in the 2018 Batch ‘B’ Stream II in Lagos State, where he had been posted.

The source said, “The NYSC was constrained to “dekit” Davido for violating the rules guiding conduct and activities in the camp. As a matter of fact, he absconded because he was away from the camp without permission. That prompted the Corps to issue him a query which was sent from Abuja. So, he is no longer a serving corps member.”
The artiste, our correspondent gathered, violated many of the scheme’s regulations. Other NYSC bylaws violated by Davido include bringing vehicles into the orientation camp; disclosing official information; engaging in private practice; taking part in partisan politics and reporting late for duty.
However, it was also gathered that he may be remobilised for the scheme. While replying to a post on Instagram during the week, the artiste had said that his NYSC programme had been terminated. He later deleted the comment from the post made by a friend.
Meanwhile, Articles 2 and 15 under the Code of Conduct subtitle in the NYSC Bylaws (Revised in 2011) state that every corps member shall not leave orientation camp without the written permission from the state coordinator, and every member shall not bring vehicles or motorcycles into the orientation camp.
The articles, however, stated that any member found guilty of violating these provisions, among other provisions, will be liable to be decamped and sent out of camp.
Section 15 (ii) added, “Any member who brings vehicles or motorcycles to camp shall not be registered, and if already registered, shall be decamped.”
The NYSC Director of Information, Adenike Adeyemi, who told Saturday PUNCH, in a response to an enquiry, that the Corps had communicated with the popular musician over his activities during his service year, however, did not say what punishment had been meted out to him for breaking several bylaws.
Davido’s enrolment for the NYSC had created a stir, as he became the cynosure of all eyes at the Iyana Ipaja, Lagos orientation camp when he arrived for registration in August 2018. He had also posted pictures of himself in the NYSC kit on Instagram, as other corps members in Batch ‘B’ Stream II swarmed him at the camp. Just afterwards, Davido left the camp and began a series of violation of the rules of the service.
Our correspondent observed from his Instagram page that just after a few days in the camp, he travelled to Boston, Massachusetts, as he embarked on a tour of the United States. He thereby violated the Section 2 of the bylaw, which says all corps members must participate in all activities in the camp.
It could not be ascertained if he did not violate the second law, which stated that corps members leaving the orientation camp should get the written permission of the state coordinator. But the Assurance crooner did not stop at Boston, as he also visited Philadelphia, New York, Washington DC, Georgia, Minnesota, London, Sao Tome, Accra, Mayotte, Lebanon, UAE, among others.Davido, within the period, was also actively involved in the electioneering of his uncle, Ademola Adeleke, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Osun State September 22 election. For weeks, the artiste shuttled between Lagos State, where he was based, and Osun State, where the election held.
But the NYSC law not only prohibited participation in partisan politics, it also said corps members should not leave their place of primary assignments without the permission of their state coordinators. Davido’s manager, Asa Asika, declined comment, saying he does not speak to the press.

Gov. Emmanuel Offers Corps Members N20,000 Each For Transportation
The Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has doled out the sum of forty million and one hundred thousand naira to Batch C corps members posted in the state, which translates to N20,000 per corps member as the money is to be shared among the 2,005 of them.

Emmanuel announced the offer during the official closing ceremony for the Batch C, stream II corps members held at the permanent orientation camp, Ikot Itie Udung in Nsit Atai Local Government Area of the state, where he said the N20,000 is to facilitate corps members transportation to their places of primary assignment, PPA.
According to him, “I want to assure all of you of adequate security of your lives and property throughout your service year.
“Each and every one of you would get N20,000 each to help in facilitating your transportation to your various places of primary assignment.
“I also want to mention that your participation in the national service at this time is coming on the heels of the 2019 electioneering activities.
“I advise you to avoid partisanship when you are engaged in the election process and steer clear of acts capable of putting you in harm’s way.
“Your predecessors in national service have done the country proud in their engagements in such national duties in the past, you cannot afford to fail the nation in your own time.”
The Governor commended the corps members for the discipline exhibited by them during the orientation course, adding that Nigerian youths were highly disciplined.
He challenged them to inculcate entrepreneurial spirit so that they could be employers of labour rather than being job seekers, stressing that government alone would not be able to provide jobs for all graduates in the country.
Earlier, the state coordinator of NYSC, Mr Julius Amusan, urged the corps members to remain focused and shun acts capable of bringing the name of their institutions, family, NYSC and the nation to disrepute.
Amusan charged the corps members to proceed straight to the local government area where they have been posted and report to their employers. He urged the corps members to forge ahead with determination to succeed notwithstanding the challenges that may confront them.
“Incidentally, you are coming on board of national service at a time when the nation is beckoning on you to assist her in the efforts of deepening sound electoral process,” the state coordinator said.

Be Ready For A Long Strike, ASUU Tells Members, Says FG Is Unyielding
Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, President, Academic Staff Union of Universities, has admonished members of the union to be prepared up for a long strike. Ogunyemi enjoined ASUU members “to be on the watch and prepare for a long drawn out struggle to salvage the University System”
The Punch reports that Ogunyemi made this known in Strike Bulletin No 5 sent to all members of the union.
Ogunyemi charged members to remain steadfast “and resolute in the face of intimidation or antics employed by the government through Vice-Chancellors and Governing councils to undermine the ongoing struggle”
According to the ASUU President, “Government is yet to change its ‘keep them talking’ style and stance as all the meetings held so far with the Minister of Education are yet to resolve any of the demands of ASUU.”
Also speaking after their Zonal Meeting held at Ladoke Akintola University, ASUU chairman, University of Ibadan, Dr Deji Omole said Ibadan zone of ASUU has been fully mobilised with her members to ensure the reason for the strike gets actualised.
Omole noted that it is regrettable that the federal government who has not put anything on the table for revitalising the comatose education sector is busy mobilising funds for re-election in 2019.
He, however, appealed to parents not to mortgage the future of their children by fighting for proper and adequate funding of public education

ASUU Strike: Lecturer disguises as Spider Man to attend to studentsA lecturer at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Uli, Anambra State, yesterday, transformed into a Spider-Man in order to rescue his masters students from the jaws of the ongoing ASUU strike.
It was gathered that the lecturer, who is a strong member of ASUU, had to undergo the transformation so as not to contravene the union’s directive which requires lecturers to stay away from academic work.

In his capacity as a Spider-Man and not an ASUU member, he was able to attend to the students who wanted to have a final discussion with him ahead of their project defence.

Image result for 300-level Unizik Student, 4 others arrested for Money Ritual.The Ogun State Police command has arrested Victor Nnachata, a 20-year-old 300-level Political Science student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, who revealed that he went to a herbalist because he wanted charms that would make him become a billionaire.

Victor was arrested alongside 4 others suspects in Ogun State. They are: Kabiru Badmos, Nurudeen Shodaolu, Olarewaju Jimoh (a cemetery guard) and Mayewunmi Lukmon.


Nnachata, who came all the way from Onitsha to Abeokuta, in search of the herbalist, disclosed that the man was introduced to him by his friend called Gabriel. He explained that when he met Badmos, the man presented three different types of money-making ritual to him. He was asked to pick one. “I’m into NaijaBet game, but the business was not doing well the way I wanted it.” He said.
Victor Nnachata
“I discussed with Gabriel on how to move it forward. That was when he gave me the phone number of Badmos. When I got to Badmos’ house, I explained everything to him. He gave me three different money rituals to choose from. The first one entails swallowing a bird, and to do that, I would have to use alcohol. The second option would only work for a month, while the third option was that he would prepare soap for me.”
“Badmos said that I would be using the soap to bathe every day before going to my shop,” Nnachata said. The suspect further said that immediately he and Badmos agreed on a price, he transferred N250,000 to the herbalist.
He added: “I decided to embark on the journey in order to grow my business and attract more customers. Most importantly, I wanted to become a billionaire through NaijaBet game.”
On his own part, Badmos said: “When I noticed that I needed human skull for the preparation of the charm, I contacted another herbalist who is a friend to buy it for me. The human skull was bought for N30,000. After they brought it, I grounded it with some other ingredients and added it to a black soap.”
The suspects were arrested after the police received a tip-off that a cemetery guard desecrated a grave in order to steal a human skull.

According to reports on social media, he lamented that he had been accused of plagiarizing his project work. As a result, he wasn’t allowed to graduate with his mates.

Police operatives at the Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, have arrested a 300-level political science student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, and four others for engaging in money ritual, Punch reports.
The student, Victor Nnacheta, 20, from Aguleri in Anambra West Local Government Area of Anambra State, was said to have consulted two Abeokuta, Ogun State-based Islamic clerics, Kabiru Badmos and Nurudeen Shodaolu, who undertook to perform a money-making ritual for him with a human skull and other body parts for N250,000.
The Police Public Relations Officer for the zone, Dolapo Badmus, said on Monday that the clerics consulted two men, Olarewaju Jimoh and Mayewunmi Lukmon, who worked at a cemetery to exhume dead bodies for them.
She revealed that the skull and other human parts were grinded and mixed with black soap for Nnacheta to use before going to his Bet9ja shop.
Badmus stated,
“A modest achievement we have made is that of a 20-year-old man, who said he wanted to become a billionaire overnight. He consulted some herbalists/Islamic clerics, who asked him to get a human skull and other body parts.
“The herbalists/clerics hired two men, who work in a cemetery. The two men were able to exhume dead bodies. The two men confessed that they gave out skulls, which the herbalists/clerics grinded and mixed with black soap.
“In the process, the police got information about them and arrested the suspects.”
Nnacheta told PUNCH that he had asked the clerics to make him prosperous in his Bet9ja business as he had no parents.
He noted that he had paid the clerics to prepare the concoction that would make him rich before the police arrested them.
