Niger Delta varsity joins ASUU strike

The Niger Delta University (NDU) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has joined the ongoing nationwide strike declared by the union.

Dr Stanley Oguon, Chairman of the chapter, said on Thursday that the move followed a resolution reached after the local union emergency congress.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that ASUU had on Monday directed all its state chapters to go on an indefinite nationwide industrial action.

Oguon told NAN in Yenagoa that although the university was preparing for its end of semester examinations, the lecturers believe in the genuineness of the ASUU struggle.

Meanwhile, a student of the university, Andy Micheal, has appealed to the Federal Government to dialogue with ASUU, so as not to prolong the strike.

He said that any delay in the negotiation would be counterproductive to students and the nation’s education sector.

ASUU Strike 2017: See List Of Universities Yet To Comply

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on Monday declared a nationwide indefinite strike.

ASUU strike paralyses academic activities, ongoing examinations‎ at Unilorin

The strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), paralyzed academic activities and the ongoing Masters degree examinations in some faculties at the University of Ibadan on Monday.

DAILY POST gathered that students in the department of Psychology, Faculty of Social Sciences who were scheduled to start their examinations were turned back due to the strike.

Although it was gathered that the institution’s academic staff had voted in favour of the strike at its referendum last week, the news about the strike was just passed to members Monday (today) morning.

Other examinations slated at the Faculty of the Social Sciences were also cancelled due to the industrial action.

By noon, most academic activities had been halted.

Chairman, UI chapter of ASUU, Dr. Deji Omole confirmed the commencement of the strike in a mail sent to the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Idowu Olayinka.

Omole stated the strike was necessary due to abysmal level of implementation of the 2009 ASUU/FGN agreement, 2013 MoU and the shortfall in salaries leading to fractional payment of staff salaries.

He stated further that the strike was total, comprehensive and indefinite beginning from Sunday 13, August, 2017.

“We therefore write to inform you that the observance of the strike action will include: No teaching, no examination, no supervision, no attendance of the statutory meetings of any kind and other academic matters. In line with the National directive of the union, our members will henceforth withdraw their services till the end of the strike.”

Omole who later spoke with journalists maintained that the strike will have full enforcement from tomorrow after briefing the congress of the Union on campus.

He said the union had waited for the federal government to do the needful but wondered why the federal government had been deceiving the Union, condemning the withholding of the License of the Nigerian University Pension Company (NUPEMCO) while holding N1billion of the Union since three years ago.

Sex education necessary, but not in schools – Stakeholders

Stakeholders in the education sector in some states of the North West and North East have expressed divergent views on the teaching of Sexuality Education in schools and at home.

In a survey conducted by News Agency of Nigeria, some of the stakeholders said early knowledge of the subject was necessary to protect children from sex predators while others said it would corrupt morals.

Those against the idea also claimed that the two major religions in the country, Islam, and Christianity, did not support the teaching of the subject to children.

In Kaduna, a mother, Mrs. Okene Oloruwagba, said parents should take up the responsibility as soon as children gain consciousness of their sexuality, particularly when they start asking questions about their sexual organs.

“Parents should not hide the truth from their children, but teach them what they need to know based on their level of comprehension and take them gradually as they develop.

“The rationale is to catch them young and prevent them from getting the wrong information from outsiders who may eventually exploit them.

“If you don’t teach your children the right things about sex and how to protect themselves, someone else would teach them the wrong things and jeopardise their future.”

Mr. Bayo Yusuf, the Administrator of Marafa Comprehensive School, Kaduna, said sex education should be a combined effort of parents and schools.

“Children need to know about pregnancy, the implication of teenage pregnancy and the dangers of getting pregnant out of wedlock and its implications on their future.

“When children or teenagers are properly guided about their sexuality, it would not only help in safeguarding their future, but will equally prevent teenage pregnancy and curb the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases,’’ he said.

He maintained that although sexuality education may be in conflict with religion and tradition, teaching the subject early “is a necessary evil.’’

“Let us not for the sake of religion and culture put the future of our children in jeopardy, even our religion commanded that we train our children in the way they should grow, which include sex education.

“Our society has become very complex with the growth of technology which exposes our children to obscene contents.

“This alone made it crucial for the family and schools to properly guide our children, “Yusuf said.

On his part, Malam Dahuru Anchau, a Director in the Kaduna State Ministry of Education, said mothers were better placed to teach their children about sexuality.

According to him, teaching sex education in schools by fathers will be in conflict with religion and culture, because it is not in line with African culture for men to discuss the subject with their children.

However, a teenager, Adekoniye Adeola, said that teaching sexuality education would greatly equip young boys and girls to acquire all the information they need to effectively protect themselves.

JUST IN!! ASUU back to indefinite strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday announced the commencement of indefinite strike with effect from Monday, 14th August, 2017.
The strike was to reawaken the consciousness of government to the welfare and funding of Nigeria university system, as well as complying with the previous agreements it entered with ASUU.

 

Its President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi who announced the development at a press conference in Abuja on Monday added that the decision was unanimously taken by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ASUU.
He highlighted several areas of contention where federal government has been found wanting in attending to the needs of the universities.
He added that the decision was based on a nationwide consultation with all branches of ASUU and other critical stakeholders that ended last Saturday.

 

He said: “The National Executive Council (NEC) of ASUU made that decision to embark on that strike and it is total and comprehensive. While it lasts, there shall be no teaching, no examination, and no attendance of statutory meetings of any kind in any of our branches.”
The implications, Daily Sun learnt, was that schools would be shut down until the decision is reversed.

Govt Shuts 1886 Schools in Rivers State

Rivers Government has closed no fewer than 1,886 schools operating without government’s approval, Gov. Nyesom Wike said in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

Wike made the development known when the management staff of Jesuit Memorial College, Mbodo-Aluu, paid him a courtesy visit.

He said the schools were shut for failing to meet specified standards of the state Ministry of education.

He said that parents patronising the affected schools had been told to relocate their wards before the next academic session began.

According to him, the government will fully implement measures aimed at strengthening the state education sector by September.

“We want to maintain standards that will uplift education in the state,” Wike said.

Wike also explained that his administration was committed to transforming the state and empowering its people through an enhanced education sector.

He condemned examination malpractice associated with some illegal schools operating as West African Examination Council (WAEC) centres in some remote parts of the state.

According to the governor, most illegal schools have become WAEC magic centres where examination malpractices are promoted.

He, however, commended the management of the Jesuit Memorial College for establishing a branch in Rivers in honour of the 60 students who died in the Sosoliso air crash in Port Harcourt on Dec.10, 2005.

He assured them of the state government’s support to ensure that the school served the people better.

Earlier, the Principal of the school, Rev. Emeka Asogwa, explained that the school was established in memory of the 60 students of Jesuit Memorial College, Abuja, who died in the air crash.

He commended the state government for partnering the school in infrastructural development.

He also appealed to the governor to assist the school to get the Certificate of Occupancy for the 21 hectare of land allocated to it by the state government.
