UI Shut down following students protest

University of Ibadan students protest
UI STUDENTS PROTES

The University of Ibadan has been shut down after students protested alleged insensitivity of the management.

The management on Monday, May 29, directed the students to vacate the campus on or before 6pm, NAN reports.
The students were said to have taken to the streets of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, demanding the management to lift the ban on the use of cooking appliances in halls of residence.
At a congress on Saturday, May 27, the students had passed a resolution to disrupt the forthcoming examinations if students were not provided with identity cards.

They also asked the authorities to constitute the Students' Welfare Board.
Announcing the closure of the institution, the University's spokesman, Olatunji Oladejo, said it became necessary in order to avert crisis.

He said the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, has convened an emergency meeting of the university Senate to review the circumstances surrounding the development.
"The University of Ibadan, in its wisdom, has decided to shift the examination earlier scheduled for June to July 2017," Oladejo told NAN.

He said that undergraduate students are to resume back in school on July 17, while the postgraduate students would continue to stay on campus for their research activities.

NYSC to render assistance to Sierra Leone for the success of a similar scheme in the country

May 30, 2017 0
The National Youth Service Corps has restated its readiness to provide technical assistance to Sierra Leone for the success of a similar scheme in that country as soon as it gets the nod from the Federal Government.

The Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, gave the assurance at a debriefing meeting with a Sierra Leonean Government delegation which came to Nigeria to understudy the NYSC to enable the country achieve success in its newly established National Youth Service.
The debriefing meeting followed an interaction with the NYSC Management team last Monday and a two-day on-the-spot monitoring of the 2017 Batch ‘A’ (Stream One) Orientation Course activities at the NYSC Orientation Camps in Kaduna State and the FCT.

Kazaure said the timing of the Sierra Leone team’s visit to Nigeria was deliberately planned to coincide with the period of the Orientation course in view of its significance as a cardinal programme that serves as the launch-pad for the national service.
He assured that the NYSC would give its best, including the release of personnel, in a bid to provide adequate guidance and help Sierra Leone lay a strong foundation for its National Youth Service.
The Director-General, however, pointed out that the terms and procedures involved in the provision of the technical assistance would have to be formally worked out at governmental level between the two countries.
Earlier, the leader of the Sierra Leonean team, Dr. Sheku G. Kamara, said that the team had been greatly inspired by what it learned about the NYSC during its engagement in Nigeria.
“All our expectations have been exceeded. We shall be eternally grateful. We are confident that what we have learned will enable us create a successful Sierra Leonean National Youth Service,” he said.
Kamara call for a formal collaboration that would enable Nigeria extend further assistance to his country through exchange of personnel and technical expertise, provision of equipment and materials such as uniform as well as provision of vehicles to enhance coordination, monitoring and inspection.
Other areas of assistance requested include capacity to set up website and ICT integrated portal to strengthen enlistment procedures; opportunities to attend NYSC trainings, workshops and research; as well as skills and entrepreneurship development activities.
Earlier, the Chairman of the NYSC reception committee, which took the team on the guided tour, Mr. O. J. Amusan said the Sierra Leoneans were at the Permanent Orientation Camp in Kaduna State to observe verification and registration formalities and were entertained with cultural performance.
Amusan said the team also witnessed the swearing-in ceremony of the 2017 Batch ‘A’ (Stream One) Corps members at the FCT Orientation Camp; adding that officials shared technical information with them at both camps.

Special Memo to all UNIBADAN Students

May 30, 2017 0

University of Ibadan, UI Let Us Give Peace a Chance!
Special Memo to all UNIBADAN Students

The expanded Management of the University of Ibadan comprising the Principal Officers, Provost and Deans, internal members of Council, Wardens of Halls of Residence and other leaders of the University met with the leadership of the Students Union on May 28, 2017, between 4.00pm and 7.00pm.

The meeting is sequel to the resolutions passed at the Students’ Union Congress that was held on May 27, 2017. Although the congress did not follow the laid down procedure for calling a congress, the University Management still called the meeting in the interest of peace and the wellbeing of our students. The resolutions passed at the congress, in the main, are to disrupt the forthcoming examinations if students are not provided with identity cards, that the University should constitute the Students’ Welfare Board, and that the Management should allow the use of unauthorised cooking appliances in the halls of residence.

The Management wishes to inform students that efforts are currently being made to ensure that identity cards are produced and distributed starting from the middle of June. The Management has also issued a circular informing Deans of Faculties that students’ registration forms and any other valid University instrument be considered as sufficient for admittance into examination halls in the forthcoming first semester examinations. The President of the Students’ Union was copied this memo. We wish to state that no student of the University will be denied entry into the examination hall owing to non-possession of student’s identity card.

The University Management is not unmindful of the hardship that the delay in the issuance of identity cards has caused our students, but we appeal for their understanding.  The good thing about the new identity cards to be produced is that we will only be revalidating them every session as opposed to the previous arrangement requiring students to apply for new identity cards every session. Hence, we will not experience the kind of delay being experienced now next session and subsequently.
The University Management will also, very soon, convene a meeting of the Students’ Welfare Board which is a statutory committee of Senate, to discuss other students’ welfare issues, so that a lasting solution can be proffered.

The problem of the use of unauthorised cooking appliances in the halls is not new. Indeed, at a meeting between the University Management and the students sometimes in 2014, it was agreed that cooking appliances, especially hotplates, be abolished in the halls of residence because of the huge cost of electricity to the University. Besides, the non-use of these cooking appliances is part of the agreement signed by each student before residency in the halls.

In the light of all these, Management wishes to appeal to students to embrace continuous dialogue and avoid any activity that will further disrupt the academic calendar. This is our passionate appeal, and we hope students will exercise extreme caution in respect of the Students’ Congress resolutions. The threat of invading Federal roads on democracy day will not solve any problem, but will only aggravate them. The Law enforcement agents are already aware of the threat, and we appeal against any confrontation with the Police that the invasion of public roads may occasion. However, the University Management will take every necessary action to forestall the breakdown of law and order on campus.

Given the calendar we are running at present, the 2016/2017 session will not end until mid-December, 2017. This is already well behind the ideal schedule and all stakeholders should, as much as possible, avoid any action that might result in any further extension of the academic calendar. We wish our students success in the forthcoming examinations, trusting that reason will prevail. Thank you.

NYSC Director General Message To The 2017 Batch ‘A’ Stream I PCMs

May 28, 2017 0


MESSAGE OF THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL, BRIGADIER GENERAL SULAIMAN KAZAURE FSS MSS DSS PhD MCSN, TO THE 2017 BATCH ‘A’ (STREAM ONE) CORPS MEMBERS




My Dear Compatriots in National Service
It gives me an immense pleasure to address you as you come on board the ship of nation building which shall sail for the next twelve months.
Indeed, this is another phase in your life, a rare opportunity for self development and actualisation, as well as contribution to national development on the platform of selfless service. As you join the elite vanguard in pursuit of a united, virile, egalitarian and economically prosperous Nation, I charge you to approach this task with the highest degree of fervour, patriotism, service and humility – the motto of the forty – four year old Service Corps that has become a household name in the country.

My dear virile corps members, your coming this far in life, culminating in your membership of the Service Scheme has not been by accident, but through a deliberate course of action, anchored on discipline, diligence and resilience. The aggregate of which ensured your success in the various qualifying examinations which gave you the ticket to be in the NYSC Orientation camp now, for which I extend a hearty congratulations.
I implore you to reflect these virtues in all the tasks that shall be assigned you during the Orientation course and the rest of the Service Year.
As it were, the National Youth Service Corps has four cardinal programmes which every member must successfully pass through to qualify for demobilization at the end of twelve months.
The first is Orientation course, followed by Primary Assignment; Community Development Service, also known as Secondary Assignment and the last, but not the least, Winding Up / Passing – Out Ceremony.
As the name connotes, Orientation course which ushers you into the Service Year is designed to equip you adequately for the challenges that lie within and ahead of the Service. It involves trainings in physical fitness and mental alertness, lectures, social and sporting activities such as Dance, Drama, Variety Night, inter – platoon Football and Volley competitions, as well as cooking competition, among others.
My dear patriotic corps members, the National Youth Service Corps in the last few years recorded a great paradigm shift in its Orientation course contents, tailoring them to the prevailing economic realities, being a responsive, responsible and result – oriented Agency. The shrinkage of white collar jobs in the country which necessitated an army of unemployed and restive youth in search of scarcely available jobs made this shift very germane and compelling.
Primarily, this witnessed the introduction of skill acquisition and entrepreneurship development programme in the Scheme, with a Department solely dedicated to coordinating and managing the programme.
I therefore hastily admonish that you pay very keen interest to this programme which is a bold attempt by the NYSC to stem the tide of youth unemployment in Nigeria through the impartation of various skill sets and entrepreneurial mindset to corps members, for self dependency and financial freedom at the end of Service.
It is gratifying to state that credit facilities are offered to interested members at single – digit interest rate by a number of Financial Institutions that are in collaboration with the Scheme in its resolve to raise a crop of Entrepreneurs from amongst youth corps members which has been a success story. The modalities for accessing the facilities shall be unveiled to you during the sensitization programmes that will be held in the camp. You must avail yourselves of this opportunity offered on a platter of gold by the Scheme by keying into the skill acquisition programme.
Let me at this juncture emphasize that in the three weeks you will be encamped, there will be strict observance of regimentation in all your activities. The implication of this is the curtailment of your freedom. You are expected to conform accordingly and also ensure active participatory camp life, while living harmoniously with one another. In this wise, I encourage you to join the different camp committees such as Social, Sports, Utility, Security, Sanitation committees among others in order to achieve the aforesaid purpose.
At the end of Service, deserving corps members will be bestowed with some awards in the form of Chairman’s Award, State Honours Award and the most prestigious and highest of them, NYSC President’s Honours Award which carries automatic employment into the Federal Civil Service. Details of these Awards shall be revealed to you by your State Coordinator. However, it is pertinent to state that grading of recipients starts from the camp. I expect you to begin now to distinguish yourself in whatever you do on camp as all eyes are on you.
At the end of the three – week programme, you will be posted to all the nooks and crannies of the state to commence the other phases of Service. I enjoin you to live peacefully with your host communities. As much as possible, make some positive impact in the communities by leaving them better than you will meet them. Get properly integrated into the communities, learning their languages, cultures and norms. However, you must avoid their taboos. Never get involved in their local politics or show partisanship in national politics whenever you are enlisted on national assignment as Electoral Officers. Involvement in national politics is only permissible for you after your demobilization from Service.
Finally, you must never embark on frivolous journeys, whether within or outside the state. Some of your predecessors met their sudden deaths through such journeys, thereby causing their families great anguish. If there is a compelling need for you to travel outside the state, permission must be obtained from your State Coordinator through the appropriate channel. This will be explained to you in detail by the State Coordinator. Remember, the Nation and your families need you to stay alive so as to complete the Service and maximize your life potentials.
My dear children, I welcome you once again on board the ship of unity and sustainable development. As you sail along, I wish you a resounding success in the voyage.
God bless you.
SZ Kazaure
Brig Gen
Director-General, National Youth Service Corps
