No course studied in the higher institution seems
easy, but some are brutal and can snuff life outta
However, don't get afraid of them. They're
actually interesting. So grab a packet of popcorn as I take you through them.

1. Engineering: the name of this course speaks for itself already. The dudes that study this course eh.....*winks*. It undeniably houses all heavy weight courses in engine faculty like chemical engineering, mechanical, production, petroleum...etc..any guy you see rushing to lecture hall with a punching calculator, they're engine boys o.

2.Medicine: What makes this course challenging, is because you'll be forced to read(jack) like your life depends on the degree of knowledge you obtain from their heavy an bulky textbooks. Some of them actually do go for thanksgiving, when they pass their MBBS exam, that contains Anatomy,physiology and biochem.

3.Biochemistry: people usually think that it's a combination of biology and chemistry. If you're one of such, abeg, it's a wrong impression. You will actually get familiar with Bio molecules and giant Organic structures, that will choke you up. This course requires much logic.
What makes it challenging,is that you'll have to

learn a lot within a short duration. Metabolic pathways might seem frustrating atimes...*winks*. Another thing about this course is that their lecturers are always sadists, due to long years of studying brutal carbohydrate and enzyme structures.

4.Chemistry: I call this course the power,because these dudes can mix chemical concoctions of Ammonia and HCL and blow everywhere...chem guys, I dey joke o....Its actually one of the most difficult in physical science, because you'll make friends with differential equation in physical chemistry,which will leave you wondering if you're studying maths or chemical reactions.

5.Pharmacy: Its already obvious.don't know where to begin with this course.It overlaps critical aspect of chemistry. You hear stuffs like pharmacokinetics, drug metabolisms etc.

6.Architecture: the funny thing about this course is that it sounds cool and friendly,but when you get in,you know that not all that glitters are gold. You'll get familiar with geometric drawings,optics and so on, which atimes is usually a pain to the Bottom.

unizik car
Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka has recorded yet another landmark breakthrough recently when five of her students produced a formula 1 car.
The students, from the department of mechanical Engineering produced the race car as their project.
The names of the student engineers include 
*Okoyenta Augustus,
*Okeke Chukwuebuka,
*Ofoegbu Kenechukwu,
*Ibekwe Ebeneezer and
*Ezeani Chikeluba.

According to the initiator of the project, Okoyenta Augustus, the materials for the car were locally sourced and it took them two years to put in place. The cost of the project still according to him was about .4 million naira, though with the support of the department.

unizik student gone missing-omogist
They were six girls, who went to Lounge 24 Gaga, a nightclub in Awka, the Anambra State capital, on September 17. They are Calista, Uju, Lovelyn, Ada, Chika and Annabel. All of them are friends and live close to one another. When they returned to their hostels the following morning, one of them – Annabel – could not be found.
According to the Nation ,the 300-Level English Language and Literature student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) in Awka has not been seen anywhere, 43 days after she went to the night club with her friends. She is the only girl in a family of three.

Annabel, 24, a native of Enugu State, was last seen on Wednesday, September 17 evening, when she left her Paradise City Hostel in Iyiagu Estate, Awka.When she was leaving the club, Annabel reportedly left at midnight with a guy she met at the club. That was the last time she was seen.
Annabel’s friend and hostel mate, who simply gave her name as Ifeoma, said after clubbing, the girls decided to find a place to sleep before returning to their hostels. But Annabel, she said, told her friends she wanted to go with Mmiri, a male acquaintance, she met at the club. She was said to have told her friends that she was in need of money, which could have informed her decision to go away with the guy

When she did not return in the morning, it was learnt that Ada and Chika called Annabel’s phone but were disappointed to hear a male voice claiming to have found the phone on the ground and asked the ‘owner’ to come for it. Ada and Chika, it was gathered, retrieved the phone and contacted Annabel’s elder brother, Ifeanyi, who reported the matter at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Awka

A serving National Youth Corps Member, identified as Chinyere, at the weekend landed in trouble in Asaba, Delta State, when a love potion meant to charm a 32-year- old graduate of chemistry backfired, Leadership reports.
The incident which occurred around Redeemed Junction along Okpanam community road, Asaba, followed a long relationship between the suspect and the young man, who hails from Ibusa community near Asaba. It was said that they started dating while they were both in Lagos, until she graduated and was posted to Asaba for her youth service.
Sources revealed that their relationship encountered some undisclosed issues and the young man broke up, but the suspect refused to let go despite all effort to convince her he was done with the relationship.
It was gathered that the suspect insisted the relationship must continue because she had put in a lot of time.

“I have invested my time and resources into this relationship and you cannot just wake up and tell me you are through with me. If you have done that to other girls before, you cannot try that with me,” Chinyere said. The victim said on the fateful evening, the suspect reported the young man to his elder sister who lives in Benin, adding that he was called and advised him to let sleeping dog lie after talking some sense into him.

The young man reportedly obeyed his elder sister and invited the suspect to his house situated around Okpanam community where the misfortune happened. The two ‘love birds’ reportedly took a walk down town that night, getting to some point, the young man excused her to purchase a bottle of water and as soon as he walked away, the suspect not knowing people were watching her, reportedly brought out a small can and she packed sand from the spot the young man stood, and immediately jumped into a commercial tricycle and left the scene but was chased and brought down.

The corps member was reportedly pounced on beaten to pulp by an angry mob who witnessed the incident. It would be recalled that 18 year old Martins Okolo was reported to have slept with his mother after using a local charm on her in Otulu community, Delta state.

A UNILAG student who almost got raped on Thursday has narrated herordeal in a mail she sent in this morning. According to her, she does notknow the guy in question from Adam, but just found him on her BBMcontact and they got talking. He invited her for a job and went over to seehim.

When she got there the story changed, he just wanted s*x. Here’sthe unedited mail she sent in.Aunty Ladun, read how I was almost raped last week when a guy calledme for an ushering job.. Have been on my laptop typing this hoping youwill read it..For the record, am a student of unilag.. I still can’t believe it. He was someanRead and don’t blame me, was just hustling.The Mail;Let me tell you about the night I was nearly raped. It was Thursday, 23rdOctober 2014, and it happened at the Studio of Olanrewaju, a 29yr oldgraduate Of unilag. Lanre (olanrewaju) and I met on BBM .

How he got tobe on my list remains a mystery. He saw my Dp and pinged tocompliment it. He told me I did fit in as a model coz of my physique.On a normal day, I hate modelling coz of d revealing part and as a girl; Ihave spots on my laps due to an ailment. I told him about it and he saidushering jobs do not require revealing. He kept insisting till I decided togive his thought a chance. Perhaps ushering is my talent.Having agreed, he told me to come on thurday that there is an usheringdeal/job he has for me and less I forget, he said he owns a modellingagency. With all these, I believed he was going to be matured.With this mind, I prepared myself and wore a long jean. ]

On arriving, heasked us to go to his second studio, coz where I met him was his frnd’shouse. ( All this happened in surulere).On getting there, he started his rubbish. I remember he was manipulative– he tried to be very charming but there was something very creepy about him; when I didn’trespond to the charm, he sulked and I thought that was the end of it.But a moment later he came honier I guess. He said he went to an armyschool, that there is no way am going to leave or shout for rescue coz hisstudio is soundproof. He said a kiss would make him release me. I kneltlike an humbler (pardon me) begging him, OMG . Have never begged likethis before. I was the humblest girl on earth that night. He said a kisswould earn my release.I gave him a kiss out of desperation and fear. This dude still wantedmore.

Then he started telling me stories of how I would need to sleep around to make it in life. He went to the extent of using celebs that did sleep around before they got to their current fame state. While he was saying this, I was praying to God for a miracle.

Immediately he finished his blabbing, he went to the other room prolly to get condom I can’t say. Immediately he went in, I dashed for the glass sound proof door. Searching the environment, I saw 2 guys and made hand signals to them by banging the door and shouting. This caught their attention and my rapist became scared. He came out from the room to open the door for the two men outside. He told them that I was his gf that everything is okay; he even told them I just gave him a kiss.

As I saw dat this 2guys were going to agree and not listen to me, I ran out, my hand broke the glass I guess. I dashed for the short fence, flew over it (thanks to those adrenalines) on jumping, a lady outside came to my aide and I narrated all what happened to her. She also testified to the ushering/model scams of how her sister was also duped. I got to school with cuts and bruises. I narrated all these to my roomies who decided to give the guy a call and lambast him. I really didn’t hear all what happened on the phone because I was too tired.. I slept like a log of wood. The next day, the guy already deleted himself, then called to threaten me that he will find me if words of what happened goes out. But I didn’t report it to the police. Why not? My motives were messy and confused. Was it really a crime? Actually, it was – under the Sexual Offences Act .

It is classed as sexual assault, for which he could have theoretically got ten years. Some reading this might have been a victim of being duped or raped. We all know the police can’t help but I trust the media sha. I would have loved to give out this dude address plus his friends own but I think it’s not necessary and if it gets worse I will give it out. I want to use this medium to tell my fellow ladies to shine their eyes and not just go to any location coz of an ushering job. It’s better to be under a reliable agency than looking for direct jobs. The pay can’t even buy our Brazilian hair. Let’s be careful and may God protect us all from them wicked boys.
uniben 300 level student-omogist
Unidentified assailants have killed a 300-level student of the Department of Chemistry in the Faculty of Physical Sciences‎ of the University of Benin, UNIBEN. The victim was identified as Gbenedio Ejiroghene. Ejiroghene was said to have been axed to death the NewsNigeria reports.

The gruesome murder took place in the Ugbowo Campus of the institution on Friday at about 7 pm, when he was hit on the head.
The University’s spokesman, Barrister Harris Osarenren who confirmed the murder of the student, said the killing has been reported at the Ugbowo Police Station and that the body has been deposited at the mortuary of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, UBTH.
He said investigation has commenced to unravel the circumstances about the killing
I love it when a lady is a combination of beauty and brains, like my baby. This girl is one of such:

Rita Aladi, 20, leads nine other females in sweeping academic laurels at the fourth convocation of the Caleb University in Imota, Lagos. Punch's Charles Abah writes:

Two things occupied the mind of the 20-year-old best graduating student of the Caleb University, Miss Rita Aladi, as she mounted the podium to deliver her valedictorian speech.

The first had to do with the burden of how she eventually graduated from the university. The second is on how she eventually topped the list of the 2014 graduating class. For her, the sum total of all that took place on the convocation day was a nice surprise.

She said, “I almost dropped out of school in my final year due to financial difficulties. That I eventually graduated from this school is a miracle. It came to a point that my father had to come to appeal to the authorities to give him some grace period to enable him to pay my fees.

“Beyond this, I never knew that I could become the best graduating student. Throughout my primary and secondary education, I never came first. But I had never gone below the third position in any class.”

Rita Aladi’s display on the podium aptly captured this element of surprise. Intermittently, she screamed ewoooo, muttered God oooo, while she yet punctuated her speech with sobbing.

The youngster, who bagged a first class in Biochemistry, posted a Cumulative Grade Point Average of 4.80 out of 5.0 points to emerge the overall best in the 2014 convocation of the university. For her excellence, she received several awards, including ‘The Most Outstanding Student of the Year’ and the ‘Best Graduating Student in the College of Pure and Applied Sciences’.
According to the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Ayodeji Olukoju, she is also the first to obtain a first class from the department of Biochemistry.

She said, “I did not plan to be the best graduating student but I told myself that I needed to compensate my parents for their commitment to my education. They were always there for me in spite of the difficult times that they faced.”

She noted that as at the time she got admission to the school, her father was a buoyant entrepreneur, though her mother was a trader. However, things became tough for the father, who was running a bakery and a filling station.

She further said, “Also, the advice from our Dean, Prof. Sunday Ajayi, any time he had the opportunity of talking to us, helped me a lot. He always challenged us to aim higher in life. Again, because I made a first class grade in my first year, I was under this immense pressure of maintaining that height. Though I obtained that grade all through the subsequent years, I never looked forward to becoming the best graduating student. In all frankness, I never thought of it.”
On what she intends to do after her National Youth Service, the valedictorian said she did not have an idea yet. “I shall return to the university to study either in Nigeria or overseas but I do not know yet what course I will pursue at the postgraduate level,” she explained, brimming with a touch of innocence.

As a fresher in school, as commonly known as Jambito or jambite... I was so excited to be a university undergraduate. Moving round the school like someone that has arrived( I nor know say I just start the race).
I did so many crazy things as a fresher which make me laugh when I reflect bad...
1. Going to class to get sit as early as 6:30 ( that matter nor be hear ooo... I just want to sit on the front row).
2. Buying all sort of materials just because they told you you need it but @ the end you end you not reading them....
3. Attending multiple tutorials that at the end you get confused of what they are teaching...
4. Attending almost all parties and social event in school just to feel belong...
5. Going for night class almost everytime just because some people tell you, if you don't you might fail...
6. Wooing any fine girl that comes my way... this one was really fun shall...
7. Was eager to tell everyone the number of A's I had... ( guy how far ur result, guy I got 12A's... geee... you be scholar ooo)

As a fresher in the university, you just want to do everything... it was fun shall... What were the crazy things you did as a fresher?
Caveat: This is not based on hard data but on observations. It is compiled by JarusHub editor and 2 other contributors to this portal. Note also that this is not based on who earns the highest salary, but who has potential to earn decent income with his degree. Potential is the operative word here.

Here we go:

10. Mass Communication/Journalism: Mass Communication will remain a marketable because not many Universities do it, but many institutions need it. The downside is, journalism is not seen as exclusive preserve of MassComm graduates, as graduates of almost any course are recruited by news outfits. Yet, the course still stands a decent chance.

9. Law: Maybe the supply is fast outstripping demand and affecting pricing, Law has declined in economic value. However, it remains a Top 10 course. Whether you decide to practice or go into corporate world, or you decide to go into allied things like real estate agency, you still stand a decent chance of earning decent income with a Law degree.

8. Nursing/Laboratory Science: Nurses don’t earn mouth-watering pay, but they are hardly jobless. I see Nurses change jobs like clothes. Hospitals and clinics – private and public – are springing up everyday, and a medium size clinic needs at least 4 Nurses. Some may have as much as 20. Same goes with Lab scientists, although in lower demand.

7. Mechanical, Electrical & other related Engineering courses: Engineering courses generally sell in the oil and gas industry. In addition these courses are also asked for in other major industries.

6. Economics/Accounting/Finance: The good thing about Economics is that it fits into many roles. I hesitated to include Accounting here because Accounting degree alone without professional qualifications is not usually so helpful; however, I included it because I expect the accounting graduate to do the needful of writing professional examinations after his degree. Even without professional qualifications, you can still get a decent job with Accounting degree only in the many small to medium scale firms that require the services of accounting graduates. Finance is another great course. The three courses, sometimes alongside Management and Business Administration, are usually in hot demand, although supply still exceed demand and many graduates of these courses are still jobless.

5. Computer Science/Computer Engineering/IT courses: IT professionals are in hot demand the world over. Nigeria is not different. With special IT skills, your chance is even brighter. The downside is, anybody can learn IT skills, even if he doesn’t study computer engineering.

4. Geology: It is also a course that places you in good position to penetrate the much-sought-after oil industry.

3. Chemical/Petroleum Engineering: These courses have the potential to fetch you the fattest pay check after graduation because the companies that ask for them are those that pay heavily – the oil companies.

2. Estate Management/Architecture/Building/Survey/Civil Engineering: A degree in any of these courses places you in a good position for self-employment. Even from school, Architecture students make money drawing plans for people. We consider these courses the second most marketable courses in Nigeria.

1. Medicine: Medicine may not earn you N500k per month at entry level, but it is the course that guarantees you job the most. I have never come across a jobless medical doctor. The pay may not be as heavy as the Chemical engineering guy in the IOC, but you are guaranteed of better-than-average income as a doctor. Medicine is number 1 on our list.
Jalingo – Alhaji Kassimu Umar, a Lecturer at the Taraba College of Education (COE) Zing, was on Friday burnt to death in a mob action after he allegedly hit and killed five primary school pupils with a vehicle he was driving.

Mr Joseph Kwaji, the Police Public Relations officer (PPRO), of the Taraba Police Command confirmed the incident in Jalingo.

He said that the mob forcefully removed Umar from the Pupule Police Outpost, where he went to report the incident, and the mob burnt him to death.

“In the early hours of today, one Kassimu Umar, who is believed to be a lecturer with COE, Zing had knocked down five primary school pupils in Zing, who all died on the spot.

“After he reported the incident to the Pupule Police Outstation, irate youths in their hundreds, stormed the station, dragged him out and lynched him.

“Our investigation revealed that the lecturer was trying to dodge a trailer, when he ran over the pupils whose ages ranged between eight and 11 years,” he said. Kwaji said that the matter was under investigation, adding that no arrest had so far been made. (NAN)
In a circular displayed at halls of residence this morning, authorities of the University of Ibadan said students
“caught in any intimate position such
as kissing or having carnal
knowledge in public places” most especially in the Gamaliel Onosode park a.k.a Love Garden, would be punished.
The university also barred resident
students from bringing members of
the opposite sex to their hostels and
“loitering in dark places outside the
sports pavilion or lecture venues.”
However, It is expected that the new rule, won't go down well with the students as they have threaten to paralysed academic activities.
Student Union leader Odesola Oluwafemi Victor a.k.a HunterSola said that students would resist the rules introduced some few hours ago.
“We are against these rules which we
view as archaic, repressive and evil,”

HunterSola, president of the University of Ibadan Students Union (UISU) told CNN. “We are urging students to resist the rules. These rules reduce the University to a primary school. The authorities need to be reminded that this is an institute for adults who are mature.” He said the rules, which also bar students from accommodating non- resident colleagues, were meant to curtail students’ right to associate. Its expected that visits to female halls at night would be restricted.

University of Zimbabwe students’ union today frowned against the school’s authorities decision to ban kissing on campus and sexual activities whatsoever. The students who protested said the rules were childish and are unaccepted.

In a circular displayed at halls of residence, authorities at the University of Zimbabwe said students “caught in any intimate position such as kissing or having s*x in public places” would be punished. The university also barred resident students from bringing members of the opposite sex to their hostels and “loitering in dark places outside the sports pavilion or lecture venues.”

Student leader Gilbert Mutubuki said students would resist the rules introduced two weeks ago. “We are against these rules which we view as archaic, repressive and evil,” Mutubuki, president of the Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASSU) told AFP.

 “We are urging students to resist the rules. These rules reduce the university to a primary school. The authorities need to be reminded that this is an institute for adults who are mature.” “We believe these are security measures meant to limit students from associating,” he said.
The Vice-Chancellor the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Prof. Abdul-Ganiyu Ambali, has announced that for the first time in history, a Nigerian university was ranked 20th in Africa and 1,842nd in the world.“I am happy to restate that a remarkable thing happened to the Nigerian university system this year, courtesy of UNILORIN.
“For the first time since ranking began, a Nigerian university was ranked among the best 2,000 universities in the world”, he said.
The professor of veterinary medicine, who spoke with reporters in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on the institution’s 30th convocation lecture, said the latest ranking of international colleges and universities placed the university first in Nigeria, 20th in Africa and the 1,842nd in the world.
Continuing he said, “Though we are not satisfied to occupy the position we are on the global stage until we are ranked within the best 200, the achievement of the university will be underscored when it is realised that 11,307 colleges and universities are sampled in the ranking in 200 countries.
“The United States alone, not to talk of other advanced countries, has much more that 3,000 universities.
“The modest work being done at the university has made it the darling of admission applicants in Nigeria; the university was the eighth most preferred in 2011 and fifth most preferred in 2012.
“Last year, we became the 2nd most preferred university in Nigeria and this year we became the number one choice of applicants with over 105,000 applicants, the second most preferred university having 74,000 applicants.”

On his achievements, Ambali disclosed that: “We have embarked on 10,000 hectares of oil palm plantation. We all know that the Malaysian economy relies much on oil palm and there is a report that they took the seed from Nigeria a few decades ago.

“However, our country imports about 500,000 metric tonnes of palm oil annually while Malaysia exported about 24 trillion metric tonnes of palm oil in 2012 to the United States, the European Union, China and India. “The export earned the country some 20 billion pound sterling (about N5.314 trillion).”

The VC put the number of graduating students at 6,328, with 5,438 getting first degrees and 890 higher degrees/diploma. He said: “In the first degree category, 48 made first class; 1,290 second class upper; 2,814 second class lower; 1,067 third class; 84 pass; 18 diplomas and 217 MBBS.”

Three children abandoned in a boarding school in Abule-Iroko in the Ado-Odo Ota LGA of Ogun State are longing to meet their parents who have abandoned them for eight years.

When PUNCH visited Solid Model College, the children recounted their ordeal, noting that the absence of their parents was affecting their studies.

Seun Adepegba, 14, Seyi, 10 and Titilola, 13, were severed from parental love and care since infanthood. After waiting for eight years, they seemed to have relinquished all hopes of reuniting with their parents.

It was learnt that their tale of sorrow began in 2007 when their father, Mr Segun Adepegba, who had been separated from their mother, enrolled them in the boarding school because he could not afford to take care of them.

According to the proprietor of the school, Mr Samuel Ayegbusi, Adepegba came to enroll them in his school on September 24, 2007 with a promise to always check on them. He said:

“Mr. Adepegba told me his wife had just left him and that he could not afford to take care of them, being a jobless man. The children were very little. Seyi was two, while Titilola was five. 
“Mr Adepegba had pleaded with me to accept them in the boarding school. Mr Adepegba’s sister promised to bear the cost of their upkeep. They paid an initial N150,000 for the three children for the first term.”

But according to the proprietor, Adepegba never kept his promise. He said after the first term, the school expected him to come and take his children home for holiday but he never showed up until four years later. He said the school had expended over N7m on the upkeep of the children since 2007.

The proprietor said efforts to reach the parents’ families had proved abortive, adding that calls to Adepegba’s phones were not always answered.

He said, “Whenever we called him and he realised who was talking on the phone, he would switch off his phones and for the next two weeks, the numbers would not be available. When the school contacted their father’s sisters, we were told that they had travelled out of the country.

“When we called one of them, we were told that they had sent money to Mr Adepegba to defray the children’s school fees and upkeep. But Mr. Adepegba has never come here to make any payment since the initial deposit he made in 2007.”

According to the proprietor, taking care of the children had further become cumbersome for him as one of them, Titilayo, had started misbehaving. He recounted how Titilayo ran away from the hostel twice without informing the school authority on the excuse that she was going to look for her father.

Ever since she was found, the proprietor said the school had had to keep her in a room, under tight surveillance, because she had vowed to run away to find her father.

He said, “The school is not even bothered by the cost of their upkeep. But anytime the school closed for holiday and parents come around to take their children home, Titilayo would fall into a sober mood and twice, she had run away from the hostel without informing anyone. It was a resident who stopped her and brought her back to the school.

Some of the teachers, who spoke with PUNCH Metro during the visit, said the absence of the children’s parents was seriously affecting their studies. They said the appearance of their parents would boost their academic performance.

While recounting their days with their father, the children said he celebrated birthdays with them. They said they had never met their mother.

Titilayo said, “We do not know who our mother is. We grew up in Yaba, Lagos and all we remember is that there was a woman that washed our clothes and took care of us until we came here. We knew she was not our mother.”

Seyi, the youngest of the trio, however, was an exception as she kept a cheerful look during the visit. Seyi, who told our correspondent her dream was to become a medical doctor said, “Although I have a faint memory of my father, I will like to see him. If he comes today, I will ask him why he left us for so long.”

Seun added, “I don’t care how long he has left us. I just want to see him. I really need to see him.”

When Punch called Adepegba on Thursday, his phones were switched off.

see what some male students eats in the morning to look sharp, truly most students claim that they take alcohol every morning to look bright so in your own view does alcohol widen somebody's scope? oya watch below and comment here

At least two students from Nigeria who applied to a Texas college were told they wouldn't be admitted because of Ebola.

Kamorudeen Abidogun, a Texas man originally from Nigeria, said he received two letters from Navarro College, a two-year community college with a campus about 58 miles from Dallas. Abidogun has five relatives in Nigeria who were applying to the school and who were using his home in Richmond, Texas, as a U.S. mailing address, he told CNBC.

The college rejected the applications, citing confirmed Ebola cases in the country as the reason for the admissions decision. "I received, last weekend, two rejection letters ... saying the reason why they were not giving admission was ... Ebola," said Abidogun, who is a mechanical engineer. He said he was "disappointed" in the school's stated policy.

A copy of the letter he provided to CNBC carries the signature of Navarro College's international programs director, Elizabeth Pillans.

The letter begins: "With sincere regret, I must report that Navarro College is not able to offer you acceptance for the Spring 2015 term. Unfortunately, Navarro College is not accepting international students from countries with confirmed Ebola cases."

Idris Bello, a Nigerian who lives in East Texas, tweeted a photo of the letter to bring attention to the situation. Bello, in an interview with CNBC, called the college's purported policy "embarrassing."

In his tweet, Bello noted the irony of the school having such a policy for foreign students, when 26-year-old nurse Nina Pham, in nearby Dallas, recently contracted the disease after treating a Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan. After repeated requests for comments on the situation, Navarro's vice president for Access and Accountability, Dewayne Gragg, sent an email to

"Our college values its diverse population of international students. This fall we have almost 100 students from Africa. Unfortunately, some students received incorrect information regarding their applications to the institution," Gragg wrote.

"As part of our new honor's program, the college restructured the international department to include focused recruitment from certain countries each year. Our focus for 2014-15 is on China and Indonesia. Other countries will be identified and recruitment efforts put in place once we launch our new honors program fall 2015. We apologize for any misinformation that may have been shared with students. Additional information regarding our progress with this new initiative will be posted on our website," he continued. When asked for further clarification, and to answer whether in fact there is or had been a policy to reject students based on the presence of Ebola in their countries, Gragg said in an email, "The prior email speaks for the college."

There have been no new reported cases of Ebola in Nigeria since Sept. 8. Out of 20 people reported infected as a result of a Liberian man traveling there with the virus, eight died. But the virus was contained in the port city of Lagos.

Abidogun said his five relatives who have applied to Navarro College all live in the city of Ibadan, in Oyo State, Nigeria, which is about 80 miles from Lagos.

Navarro College talks about the Ebola virus on the section of its website devoted to admissions information for international students, but it does not mention any policy to not admit people from countries with cases of Ebola.

The leaker said “This was one of the rudest girls I ever met. Never was originally going to expose her but her attitude landed her an expose.”


The Warwick University women’s rowing team is back with a naked calendar featuring the girls on the team for a third year in a row to raise money for charities in the United Kingdom.
Despite Facebooktrying to ban their images for sharing “inappropriate content” the girls have gone ahead and released their calendar anyway, especially since they already had 200 pre-orders.
Of note:

The University of Warwick men’s rowing team has also sold a naked calendar since 2009 to raise money supporting groups that fight homophobia, so why not the ladies as well?

Apparently there was mass failure at the Nigerian Law School this year. The Nigerian Law School recently released the 2013/2014 August result, and it was a Tsunami.

Meaning that about 3,000 students failed the bar exam, the highest failure the Nigerian Law School has witnessed since its 50 years of existence.

Many of the students are angry and frustrated. They say they don't believe the mass failure is the fault of the students and are now asking for a review of their results. An affected student who reached out to LIB said; Continue...

"People have worked their butt off for this exam, people have ran literally mad for this exam, these same people have invested their life savings for this exam, people who lost their parents prior to this exam had to muster the strength to write this exam and the Director general of the Nigerian law school who is responsible for the this mass failure doesn't see reasons with these people. He said he's raising a standard but all we see is a high standard of failure!"
Another student said
"Do we say 3000 students payed N300,000 not counting expenses for a year, feeding,books, then prepared to fail? We are calling for a review"

If we are to go by the vocab spoken by a Nigerian graduate (corps member) as captured in the picture attached, will it be OK to say Education in Nigeria is dead!

Please let's assume this corps member did her duty to the Nation in a Primary/Secondary school, what will become of those students going by the standard of their "teacher"?

Maybe I should allow you judge! On a scale of 1-10 what would you rate Nigerian educational system?

It has come to our notice that a couple of female students have
been expelled from the prestigious Covenant University for not
wearing bra.

Apparently the girls got expelled for participating in the “National
No Bra day” that took place 13th of Oct in an attempt to promote
the buzz around the awareness for bosom cancer.

The girls attended classes without their bras, revealing the shape and size of
their bosom. The lecturers, excited sensually by the act, took to
their heels and reported the distraction to the school authorities.

The disciplinary committee of the school has reportedly told the girls to come dressed in the said “no bra” attire to “appeal their expulsion, citing that since the university students are not allowed to use mobile phones, they were no selfies or any pictorial evidence of their outfits from yesterday to use for the appeal.”
News reaching me is that the formidable CU has suspended various students for many trivial reasons such as double piercings in their ear, phone possession, having sim enabled ipads and other silly reasons. The students are to be suspended for four weeks, just three weeks to examinations, and are to go home today.

IMO, this is wickedness of the highest order. How would you suspend students just a few weeks to exams? The normal practise of the school is to suspend erring students at the start of a new semester but, these students are going home towards exam period. And when people bash the school, they complain.

I also her the school takes great joy in expelling and suspending students for foolish reasons. And how the school makes final year students come back(spill over) for one whole year just because of a 3 unit course.. Really silly angry Your opinions??
The Vice-Principal of a government school, 57-year-old Taiwo Ajayi, has been caught defiling a 12-year-old student of the school. He was caught by one of the staff in the school, Mr Victor Babayemi. He reported the matter after suspecting the movement of the young girl inside the vice principal’s office. “The witness became apprehensive when the student, after spending a considerable time in the VP’s office, did not come out. The witness went near the door and discovered it was bolted from behind, she knocked and the movements, sounds and subsequent demeanor of both the suspect and the victim gave them away.” According to a police statement in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, Mr. Ajayi was said to have allegedly committed the offence inside his office at Saint Mary’s Girls Grammar School, Ikole Ekiti.

The state police said investigation revealed that the randy vice-principal had a similar case in the past which was not reported and added that the young girl also admitted that the man had carnal knowledge of her on the table inside his office. “The report of a medical examination confirmed that the young girls’s hymen is not intact,” the staff who caught them in the act said. “With the evidence against him, he will soon be arraigned in court for defilement,” according to the police but Mr Ajayi is however denying the allegation. He said “I didn’t do anything o!”

CAUGHT in the act

Woman Caught cheating on her husband will small boys has been caught red handed with one of her small-boy lover doing things in a hotel room. In fact, the young lover is said to be a student in one of the tertiary institutions in Nigeria who is still in his second year.

According to his hostel mates, they thought the woman was his mother or relative as she always come with food stuffs for him. Funny enough, they say she spend the night on some occasions. She ran out of luck after her husband trailed her to her secret love spot. See more photos below…
The husband and his friends took pictures of the wife and her lover in compromising mood.
university runs girls
Prostitution; it is the oldest profession in the world; from before Deliliah’s seductive ways with Samson in Bible times, to what happened last night in a dark corner at Ojuelegba bus stop in Lagos.
Women, selling their bodies for money; some pushed into this nefarious profession out of poverty, some, out of sheer greed and some others, simply for the love of s*x. In this piece, Vanguard explores the lives students in our tertiary institutions, who now appear more remarkable in their runs for men and money than their primary purpose of acquiring quality education.
In her confession, a female student in Lagos said: “My first night was with a man who had just come from Malaysia and after a long night of s*x, he gave me N10,000. Though I was happy because, I was not used to getting that kind of money at once, I was angry because, the guy used me very rough in the night. He had so much energy and he never allowed me to sleep. He took me on more than five times and I was very weak.”Runs’ and ‘Aristoism’ in the ivory towers:
This is not a sad tale from a Nollywood movie, it is true life story.
Things were tough for Elizabeth and her widowed mother. But sending Elizabeth to the university was top priority for her. Her mother would never have guessed that disastrous blend of harsh conditions, bad company and wrong choices would lead Elizabeth into prostitution. Her mother would not know that Elizabeth told our reporters her story from a brothel.
Her bad company came in the person of a friend she calls Stephanie. She said: “I met Stephanie during our Matriculation ceremony in the school, we were and still are in the same department. But we did not really become close until we met at the party where we got talking and exchanged contacts. At first, I thought she was into lesbianism because of the way she was asking me about myself.
“Later she told me that, I did not deserve the kind of poor life style I was living in school and that I needed to upgrade myself. She introduced me to some friends who would call me when there was a party to attend. At one of the parties we attended, they introduced me to some ‘big’ men.
“At first I did not understand what was happening, until it was obvious that each girl had been paired up to have s*x with an old man. I was very reluctant about that and I angrily left the party. The next day in school, she was so angry with me and asked me why I behaved like that. After much convictions and persuasions, I succumbed to what she asked for…
After that first night, she never turned back from the trade. “I became used to the whole thing, and I was collecting more than N5,000 per night. I had to give a cut to the person who brought me deals, and send some money back home.”
She says if she finds a better source of income, she will desist from runs. But this is her life for now. Across citadels of learning, cases such as Elizabeth’s are very rampant. 
Linda Okoye, an Aristo, at the Nigeria Institute of Journalism in Lagos attempted to give more insight into this. In an interview with Vanguard, she said: “There is no difference because they can both be classified as pros-titution. But what differs between the two is that Runs pay more than the normal pros-titution. From experience, I would say that runs are the advanced or high class pros-titution. Also, runs are a kind of contract profession while road side pros-titution is like daily s*x work whereby the person who does it is being paid based on the time she spends with her customer.
“For example, a normal pros-titute may collect N 2,000 for 15-20 minutes of s*x. But an Aristo can be on call for twenty-four hours. Another thing about the normal pros-titute is that they can have s*x with their customers on the road sides like beside banks and filling stations but runs girls use the best hotels. They have class. They work based on contracts and people who normally patronize them are rich men like company executives, politicians, businessmen among others.
What these rich men do is to contact these girls through an agent. These agents are like normal students. If you go to any higher institution, you will always find them there because they are the ones that bring business to the girls in schools. Sometimes you can get N250,000 or more to spend in one or two weeks with a rich man. So Runs girls are like high class pros-titutes. You don’t see them around often. They only come around if you have a job for them.” A 200-level student of University of Benin, Dorothy Akpenor (not real name) disclosed to Vanguard that her former roommate was involved in the runs business but she refused to join her friend.

When asked what was it like living with such a student, she said: “I was very uncomfortable with it, and often would talk to her about giving it up. There was a time she came back and told me she was always emotionless during the actual inter-course and felt guilty when some Naira notes were given to her. But she felt better that she was able to meet her financial obligations especially about her studies.” She stated further that she had advised her to stop the ‘runs’ but all to no avail. “I did ask her to stop. To me, her excuse was not tenable because I know her family was not that poor.” She said that her friend returns with an average of N20,000 to N30,000. But that she would never resort to it, adding that if she was in need of money, she’d rather talk to her parents and family members instead of embarking on s*x work. Dorothy further said that some of these girls even do it with desperation, going as far as using charms on their unsuspecting male patrons in order to get huge amount of money from them. Poverty, desperation or plain greed? The question of poverty may not be the absolute reason why many young female students take to this lifestyle but it surely contributes in some cases. However, findings show that it is usually more pronounced in girls who transit from living a normal school life, after a few Aristo runs, to living big and thereafter a struggle to maintaining the lifestyle to which they have become familiar. A posh naive female student with a taste for trendy clothes, shoes and designer handbags would be vulnerable to such act. She would go for the ‘less stress, more money runs’ with some randy executives for a night to maintain the lifestyle she chose for herself.

Nike, a 300 level student at UNILAG corroborated the idea saying: “it is a lifestyle and not about poverty as people say. Why can’t they do something more dignifying than
flirting around? Why is it that when they get some money that could set them up for a business they still don’t stop their trade? Why are they stuck in this immoral act? Some of them make so much money that you will agree that it has to do with morals otherwise they would quit if it was all about poverty. You will see them buying and wearing expensive clothes, shoes and handbags. Is that poverty?” Nike queried.
On her part, Queen as she is fondly called, told Vanguard that she is in the business simply for the love of money and s*x. She targets men who have just arrived the country from abroad because they “have more cash to splash.” She said: “I just love s*x; no condition pushed me into that. I love the money too, so I go for what I want.”
Sadly, University of Lagos, UNILAG, Akoka, is also known to be the spot for campus pros-titution. Its closeness to places like Yaba, Surulere, ensures a constant flow of wealthy ‘customers’. Chidinma Akpan (not real name) a female student who spoke to Vanguard stays at the popular Moremi Hostel, notorious for housing such girls.
She said: Men come to female hostels in the evenings to call on ladies. If the lady chooses to answer them, they both go to have a nice time. If she refuses, the men will move on to the next girl till they find what they are looking for. Some other times, it is more complex than that. Aristos work with some errand boys in female hostels. These boys show the rich men who come around the pictures of different girls and the men pick anyone they want. Just like picking a style of clothing from a catalogue.
Felicia Jinadu, also a UNILAG student, lamented on what her experience has been like with these pleasure seeking men. I have never been tempted to engage in this act but I get approached from time to time in the evenings, may be its because of my stature. I have heard of cases whereby some of our girls go with these men and never return. Some of these girls engage in it as a result of peer pressure. I heard somebody bought a car worth N7m for a lady. They engage in it because of what they can get. Some of these girls come from good homes, but are not satisfied with what they get from their parents.
Another student, Linda, told Vanguard: The school runs have become some kind of profession for some people. It’s just like hard drug whereby if you don’t take it in a day you won’t be all right.
