ASUU Strike: Lecturer disguises as Spiderman To Attend To Students (Photo)

A lecturer in one the Universities in the Southeast ‘transformed’ into Spiderman to attend to his students.

The unnamed lecturer was spotted on Wednesday morning walking into his office in Spiderman costume.

It was gathered that some non-teaching staff present when the incident happened, were stunned to see a man dressed in Spiderman costume walking into the office complex. As they greeted the lecturer and called him his name, he ignored every greeting, pretending not to know anyone since he was not ‘human’. He opened his door, walked in and sat down, waiting for students whom he had told to await the arrival of ‘Spiderman’ to assist them.

It was revealed that the unnamed lecturer had told some students he was a strong member of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) currently on nationwide strike for the past one month.

According to sources, some of his M.Sc. students wanted to see him to have a final discussion with him before their Dissertation defence which would come up immediately after the ASUU strike was called off so they wanted to get ready before then since ASUU was having serious discussions with the Federal Government and the strike may end anytime.

In order not to break ASUU directives which required lecturers to stay away from academic work while the strike was on, the lecturer decided to ‘transform’ into spiderman, probably on a rescue mission, so he could attend to the students with his disguised alter ego and not the lecturer everybody knew

It was also gathered that though the unnamed lecturer ‘was’ spiderman, some students were positioned to lookout for ASUU strike compliance monitoring team in case they headed the lecturer’s way.

4 Ways Buhari responded to those who call him Jubril from Sudan

There have been rumours bordering on the identity of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari.

Some members of the Nigerian public actually believe that Buhari died during one of his medical trips to London and was replaced by a clone called Jubril from Sudan.
Pulse weighed in on the rumours a week ago, the AFP did a fact check and the presidency was forced to react to what had become widespread and maintsream.

President Muhammadu Buhari addresses the Nigerian community in Poland
(Presidency )
On Sunday, December 2, 2018,

President Buhari responded to the rumours during an interactive session with the Nigerian community in Krakow, Poland, where he is attending the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (#COP24) which is under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (#UNFCCC).

Here are 4 ways Buhari dealt with stories that he has been cloned and replaced with a lookalike....

1. People who spread the rumours are ignorant

According to Buhari, it is ignorant and satanic to say he is a clone from Sudan or anywhere else for that matter.
"A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. Those who spread the rumour are ignorant and irreligious", the president said.

2. Buhari says he was not surprised by what the tale bearers were able to come up with
“One of the questions that came up today in my meeting with Nigerians in Poland was on the issue of whether I‘ve been cloned or not.
 “The ignorant rumours are not surprising  when I was away on medical vacation last year a lot of people hoped I was dead", he said.

3. Some politicians were already fighting over  how to become Osinbajo’s vice president, believing that Buhari was dead
There was already a power play among the political class over who should be Osinbajo’s vice president.
In other words, the lobbying for the VP position was intense.

President Buhari is accompanied to Poland by some state governors
(Presidency )

Buhari said; “Poor Prof Osinbajo (his deputy). Even he had to deal with the rumours. Some people reached out to him to consider them to be his vice president because they assumed I was dead. That embarrassed him a lot; we discussed it when he visited me while I was convalescing”.

4. Buhari says he’s going strong and he’ll be around for a while
In the president’s words: “I can assure you all that this is the real me. Later this month I will celebrate my 76th birthday. And I’m still going strong!”
So yeah, there you have it.

Utqiagvik, Alaska town won't see the sun for 65 days

Utqiagvik, Alaska, formerly known as Barrow, experienced its last sunrise and sunset onkd Sunday for about two months.
The town of about 4,000 people is now beginning its 65-day period of darkness, known as polar night.

Polar night is a common term in places that don't experience sunrise for more than 24 hours, according to CNN meteorologist Judson Jones.

"This happens every year," Jones said. "If you live above the Arctic Circle, there will be a day when the sun sets for the rest of winter. The good news? It will return and then during the summer when it won't set for days."

The northern third of Alaska lies above the Arctic Circle, the ring of latitude that encircles the frigid Arctic polar region.
Although Utqiagvik is not the only Alaskan town to experience this phenomenon, it is the first one on the polar night location list because of how far north it is.

For about one to two months, the residents of Kaktovik, Point Hope and Anaktuvuk Pass will also be without the sun. Their final sunsets will happen between late November and early December, according to CNN affiliate KTUU.

The sun officially set at 1:43 p.m. Sunday in Utqiagvik, starting its 65-day hiatus from the town. It won't peek above the horizon again until January 23, 2019.

After I spent N400m per state, Buhari refused to give appointments –Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki says the people of Kwara would not have been suffering today if they had been given enough federal appointments.

Saraki said had Kwara people been given appointments, they would have been able to approve money for party supporters which would have eased their suffering.

The Senate President was heard saying this in an audio clip while addressing Peoples Democratic Party members recently.

The audio was first posted by blogger, Kayode Ogundamisi, on his verified Twitter handle.

Saraki said during the run-up to the 2015 general elections, he campaigned for President Muhammadu Buhari in every state of the country except the six South-West states.

Saraki said during the run-up to the 2015 general elections, he campaigned for President Muhammadu Buhari in every state of the country except the six South-West states.

“Even on the phone, I was calling and giving banks instructions. Our thinking was that when we get elected, we would get the majority of appointments. I even told majority of you then that we shall all be going to Abuja together after the election.

“I thought some of you would be appointed to head federal agencies like road maintenance like FERMA, NITDA, NPA and others. Because I know that if any Kwara son becomes even just the ED of UBEC, I know what he can approve from his desk. Whether N1m or N2m.

“But for the first time since we joined politics, you have a President of the Senate or even Speaker that cannot appoint a cleaner. I am not referring to board appointees who just collect money per sitting.

“If you look at the agencies where they appointed executive positions, what do you want me to say?”

Lagos Government Gives Conditions For Use Of Hijab On School Uniforms

The Lagos State Government has approved the use of hijab in schools across the state.
The approval was contained in a circular dated November 13, 2018, which provided guidelines for wearing the hijab on school uniforms, pending the determination of the case in the Supreme Court.

According to the circular, students will be "allowed to wear Hijabs on school uniforms but same must be short, smart, neat and in the colour of the school uniform (skirt)".

The statement continued: "Furthermore, schools management are advised to downplay comments and disciplinary actions on the use of smart Hijabs until the final determination of the case by the Supreme Court."

Responding to the move by the state government, the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Lagos State Area Unit, commended the Lagos State Government.
A press statement by Dr Saheed Ashafa, the President of the MSSN Lagos, noted that "the circular would help to stop harassment and victimisation of female Muslim students for wearing hijab".

He said: “We extol this gesture and the resoluteness of the state government in ensuring that an avoidable strife do not find ways into the peaceful atmosphere being enjoyed in Lagos State.

“We are pleased with this development because the embarrassing way and manner that our members are being victimised, harassed, punished and denied entrance into their classrooms for wearing hijab would stop.

“We have constantly told the state government that while a case on the hijab is awaiting final verdict at the Supreme Court, no teacher has the right to punish female pupils for wearing hijab. The Appeal Court in the case clearly states that wearing hijab by students, whether within or outside the school premises, was a fundamental Human Right entrenched in the constitution.

“It is important to notify you that we will not allow further lawlessness and flagrant disregard for rule of law to stay after this circular. The circular would also help to stop the abuse of rights, which could have degenerated into crisis or violence that may lead to the disruption of activities in schools in our dear state.

“We commend this intervention aimed at calling teachers, principals and tutor general to order. This circular approving wearing of hijab by students on their school uniform within and outside school premises, will ensure peace and order in our schools and stability in the state’s education system.”

He subsequently encouraged female Muslim students to be confident, smart and neat while putting on the hijab, just as he urged them to "remain law abiding and be good ambassadors of the religion of peace".

I Regret Ever Marrying My Billionaire Ex-Husband - Ex-Beauty Queen, Dabota Lawson Writes

Dabota and her ex-husband, Sunday
Former beauty queen, actress and entrepreneur, Dabota Lawson, has taken to her Instagram page, to share her regrets in life so far, and revealed that she mostly regrets marrying 64-year-old billionaire, Sunday Aku, in 2014.

Recall that few years ago, the 28-year-old Dabota who got many tongues wagging over her sudden marriage to a wealthy billionaire who is way older than her, had claimed that her decision to marry the much older man, was a well thought out plan which got the nod of her loved ones. 
On the age of her husband, Dabota, had stated that she never thought about it for any reason because of the love of God which has brought joy into the family and the affection she has for him. 

She said; “When you love somebody, you just love him or her with your whole heart. You do not think about age or anything of that nature. My husband’s age is not a problem because a marriage built on the laws of God must work regardless of age, class or origin and that is what my husband and I have going for us. We face what God has to say before anything else,”  she had told PUNCH.

In her latest post on social media where Dabota shared her life regrets including the marriage to the billionaire, she wrote:
"This weekend I spent a lot of time thinking and talking about past events in my life.

My friends kept saying Dabota everything happens for a reason and you are who you are today because of all that has happened. But I said to them and myself NO!! I’m not soooo thankful, I wish I made better decisions and was careful before getting involved with certain things and certain people. 

"I wish I could see the future of how some of my poor decisions will stay hunting me , because they actually do. Every time I win or do better it’s because I chose to and I took a right turn , not always because I’ve learned a lesson. The only thing I know is my mind and heart is just stronger, too strong for my own good, I’m almost not in touch with reality and strictly focused on pursuing goals and making sure everyone and everything around me is fine. 

"I miss being care free and the softness and innocence I used to have. I hate the fact that I have major trust issue and assume everyone has an ulterior motive around me . I mostly regret ever getting married in 2014 (please keep all that lessons and whatever you think I got from it talk ) I hate the fact that I did !PERIOD! 

"The only I did right that keeps me going was making the decisions to go through with my pregnancy and have my child . My daughter is only thing I’ve done right in the world over 25 years of my life . That’s how I feel. 

"Be careful the decisions you make in life . This is a very stern warning , everything you do has a consequence that only you will experience in way only you can understand . BE VERY CAREFUL !  HAVE A GREAT WEEK !"

Buhari delivers speech on corruption at the Peace Forum in France

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday in Paris, France, called for stringent actions against perpetrators of illicit financial flows, including crackdown on safe heavens.

Mr Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, in a statement in Abuja, said Buhari made the call at the first edition of the Paris Peace Forum, held on the sidelines of the Centenary of Armistice Day.

Buhari warned that continuous impunity would encourage more pilfering of countries’ resources to the detriment of poor and vulnerable populace.

The President said Nigeria had strengthened its laws and institutions to fight corruption, fast-track recovery of stolen assets and punish offenders, urging more commitment from governments and international institutions.
He delivered his statement on “Illicit Financial Flows (Iffs) and Corruption: The Challenge of Global Governance’’ during the event, attended by about 70 world leaders and governments.

He said: “We must crack down on safe havens for corrupt assets.
“I also advocate sanctions by professional bodies against transactional middlemen (lawyers, bankers, brokers, public officials, etc.) who facilitate Illicit Financial Flows.

“I would like to reiterate that the Government of Nigeria remains open and is ever willing to continue to identify and share experiences and strategies to give life to the ideas that will lead to winning the fight against corruption.’’
The Nigerian leader noted that illicit financial flows posed a risk to the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

According to him, this is so as many countries grapple with the challenge of gathering resources to improve their Human Development Index, while a few privileged individuals continue to explore the weaknesses in financial systems.
“Our experience in Nigeria is that financial crimes, such as corruption and fraudulent activities, generate enormous unlawful profits which often prove so lucrative that the threat of a jail term is not sufficient to deter perpetrators.

“A more powerful deterrent is to ensure that profits and assets generated from illicit financial flows and corruption are recovered and returned to countries of origin.

“This is not to under-estimate the value of strong institutions. It only indicates that asset recovery represents significant deterrence compared to the traditional focus on obtaining conviction by the law enforcement agencies of the countries of origin,’’ he said.

The President urged world leaders and global institutions to remain resolute on the Global Declaration Against Corruption made in London in 2016.

He observed that the declaration had encapsulated the collective commitment to the principles of Open Government Partnership, especially the National Action Plans to actualize beneficial ownership transparency and enhance the capacity of Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs).

Buhari said the Independent Reporting Mechanisms and support for the activities of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes should be reinforced.

“As we take stock of the strengths and weaknesses of domestic, regional and international mechanisms against Illicit Financial Flows, I seize this opportunity to recall the Global Declaration Against Corruption made in London in 2016 and our commitment thereto,’’ he added.
He said said tremendous progress had been achieved through the enactment of global instruments, noting that some fundamental technical issues remain unresolved.

“These revolve around the formulation of policy and regulatory frameworks that cut across different jurisdictions.
“We must not lose sight of the role played by secret companies, banks and law firms, all too often based in developed economies and their related offshore centres.

“Recent studies reveal that flaws in the global financial system enable corrupt individuals to hide details of their financial dealings under the noses of governments and law enforcement agencies.

“This underscores the need to urgently address the issue of Mutual Legal Assistance, as well as continental legal frameworks, in the context of safe havens for illicit transfers,’’ he said.

The president disclosed that the Whistle-Blowing policy had facilitated recovery of billions of naira from corrupt persons, which had been redirected to the development of critical infrastructure and programmes that would benefit all Nigerians and realisation of the SDGs.

At the continental level, the President said the African Union had bestowed on him the honour to champion the fight against corruption across the continent.

He, therefore, assured that this task would be focused on strengthening international cooperation on asset tracing, recovery and repatriation, and enhancing cooperation between the African Union and the United Nations’ anti-corruption monitoring mechanisms.
