Possibly save the page too. *winks*(the smart ones will understand why)

Former beauty queen, Samantha Ubani shared this colorful photo as she passed out of the Nigerian youth Service Corp.

With grief in our hearts (FUTO) we announce the passing on of a super comrade. He was one of the finest, honest and dedicated servant-leader we have. He invested so much in the actualization of NAMMES national.

May God grant him eternal rest.

Goodnight Chinonso Mberi

The reason why many candidates forget their materials used for examination malpractice popularly know as 'Expo' in the booklets during WAEC exams, has been revealed.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Punch newspaper, the Public Relations Officer of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Demianus Ojijeogu, revealed that some exam candidates who are in a hurry to submit their answer booklets to invigilators, forget their expo (materials used for examination malpractice) in their answer booklets.
While noting that some other candidates use different answer booklets from its authorised copies, he added that the council had reduced the incidence of impersonation in its examinations through its biometric registration process

We encounter malpractice during the examination and during marking. Some leave the expo in the answer booklets. We see that all the time. Others use other answer booklets different from the council’s own. But, we discover these things during marking because the booklets do not have our serial numbers and they are not usually signed by the supervisors. Supervisors usually sign the booklets before they are given to the candidates.

“We have been able to handle impersonation through our biometric process but there is still collusion where candidates will copy exactly the same answers usually dictated by a teacher. We have our invigilators but the number is limited.  When you leave the centre or before we get there, they will do what they want,” he said.
He added that the council was still dealing with challenges of collusion, which involved teachers aiding candidates during examination.
Speaking further in the interview, Ojijeogu, disclosed that some candidates harassed supervisors, adding that the development had forced the council to adopt a more discreet approach in making announcements regarding examination malpractice.
“We no longer make noise about examination malpractice because examination supervision is a hazardous job. When candidates engage in malpractice, we just take their number and they fill a form. Some of our workers have been held hostage, female supervisors have been harassed. It is a hazardous job,” he added.
A young man identified as Mr. Ogundare Opeyemi, who was a serving member of the National Youth Service Corps, has died.

Opeyemi reportedly slumped and died in the Nembe area of Bayelsa State.
According to Punch Metro, Opeyemi, died in the area where he was posted for his primary assignment.
It was also learnt that the deceased corps member slumped a day after he had a party with his colleagues in the area.

“A day after the party, he complained of a health-related issue and before we knew what was happening he slumped and died,” a source, who craved anonymity, said.
It was gathered that Opeyemi’s death caused panic among corps members, who raised the alarm over incessant deaths of their colleagues in the state.

His remains were later deposited at the mortuary of the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa.
Punch Metro reports that on Friday, corps members cried uncontrollably when the kinsmen of the deceased came to convey Opeyemi’s remains to Ekiti, his home state for burial. Hundreds of corps members went in large number to the mortuary.

Officials of the NYSC in the state were led by the NYSC state Coordinator, Mr. Anthony Ekeocha.
Ekeocha reportedly described the death as painful and decried incessant deaths of corps members in Bayelsa.

He said, “We are here to carry out an assignment and it is a painful assignment.
“We all pray that we should not die prematurely but at an old age. I put myself in the shoes of the parents after much investment but at the end this is what they got”.
Some lecturers in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta have embarrassed their Vice-chancellor by presenting him a bread and coke as birthday gift.
The protesting workers presented the V.C with a coke and bread as birthday gift
Protesting Senior staff members of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, have taken their grievances to a new level after presenting the school's embattled Vice Chancellor, Olusola Oyewole a loaf of bread and a bottle of coca cola drink as a birthday gift as he clocked 61 on Friday

The man who have been in serious battle with the workers over allegations of financial fraud levelled against ‎him and the pro-Chancellor of the university, Adeseye Ogunlewe. Although the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has interrogated the two officials and is now investigating the matter, the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities in the school have continued with their protest, demanding the removal of the VC.
So to send their grievance home, they organised a mini-birthday bash and presented the V.C a coke and bread at his office, Friday afternoon.
They were however intercepted by the institution’s Chief Security Officer, Peter Bolarinwa, who promised to deliver the bizarre package.
They also demanded the reinstatement of three of their colleagues, Abdulsobur Salam, Lasun Somoye, and Abimbola Bankole, who were suspended for sending a petition to the EFCC, leading to the investigation.
