(Asuu strike)FG release N163billion to fund universities

The Federal Government said it has released N163 billion to the universities from the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), but striking academics are stalling in calling off their strike.
Sen. Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, said this while addressing newsmen after a closed door reconciliatory meeting with leaders of Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) on Monday in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the striking lecturers embarked on strike on Nov. 5, 2018, to press home their demands.
ASUU demands included some areas of understanding in the implementation of the Memorandum of Action agreed in 2017.
Some of these areas include shortfall in salaries of some Federal Universities’ workers and lecturers, earned allowances, revitalisation that were part of the 2009 agreement, among others.
According to Ngige, today we have agreed to fund revitalisation.
“Government has released about N163 billion from TETFund account to universities.
“So, we have gotten some substantial agreement in most of the areas of the agreement.
“Most of the issues have being resolved, so they are going to go back to their members and present government’s offer to their council,‘’ he said.
Ngige also said that the striking lecturers were not asking for N50 billion before they would call off the strike.
He, however, added that if the total amount of the union’s demand was aggregated it would be more than the N50 billion as the government was paying in different compartments.
“These are debts of 2009, owed by the past administration, that is 2009 to 2012, so it is not our own debt and we have been doing a lot to settle these debts.

“So, we will be reconvening at the instance of ASUU. They said they want to go and consult with their members and they cannot call off the strike without consulting with their members,’’ he said.
Earlier, the minister had said that President Muhammadu Buhari had mandated him to ensure that all issues concerning the ongoing strike in the university system were resolved.
“The president has directed me to pass the night here until all issues that have kept our children away from schools are resolved and strike called off.
“He has also directed me to impress upon you, the imperative of little sacrifice from all sides, knowing fully well that the revenue of the federation has dwindled from what it was before the present administration assumed office,” he said.
Ngige further said President Buhari was greatly worried about the situation in the university system, hence his steady and holistic approach to tackling the rot through adequate funding.
“Mr president told me to assure you of his determination to reposition our universities as he would do everything possible to cast the present challenges in our tertiary education to dustbin of history.
Also, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU President, said that there were still some grey areas in the proposal presented by the Federal Government.
He said the union would look at the grey areas and would get back to the government.
“The most critical area is the revitalisation, because it is central to our work, as academics and unless that area is addressed our members will have issues with ongoing action.
“We also did not ask for N50 billion, we are saying that the minimum we expect government to release in order to reactive the revitalisation fund is N50 billion.
“So, the strike is still on,’’ he said

Asuu strike: End the strike now (Buhari orders ngige)

Chris Ngige the labour chairman made the disclosure during the resumed meeting with  ASUU on Monday.
Report by the Assistant Director, Press at the ministry, Rhoda Illiya, said Buhari ordered Ngige that the three-month strike must be called off at the end of the meeting on Monday.
The university lecturers embarked on an indefinite strike on November 4, demanding improved funding of public universities and implementation of previous agreements with the federal government. The chairman of labour Chris ngige said
“Mr President has directed me to pass the night here until all issues that have kept our children away from school are resolved and the strike called off.
“The president has also directed me to impress upon you, the imperative of little sacrifice from all sides, knowing fully well that the revenue of the Federation has dwindled from what it was before the present administration assumed office,” Ngige said.
He said Buhari was concerned by the prevailing crisis in the university system, reason for his steady commitment to a “holistic approach to tackling the rot through adequate funding, notwithstanding the dwindling accruals.
“The president told me to assure you of his determination to reposition our universities as he would do everything possible to cast the present challenges in our tertiary education to the dustbin of history,” he said.

INEC plotting to use N_Power beneficiaries as election ad hoc

CUPP, has alleged that  INEC planned to adopt beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s N-Power programme as ad-hoc staff 2019 general election

Ikenga Ugochinyere CCUP spokesperson, said yesterday that INEC had begun recruitment of the Federal Government’s N-Power beneficiaries as ad-hoc staff for the election, and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call INEC to order.
The statement read in part: “The President wants to use the beneficiaries of their failed N-Power programme to technically rig the election.
‘’The INEC chairman should ensure the credibility, which he promised Nigerians by making sure that no N-Power beneficiary is recruited as ad-hoc staff in the election, because it’s clear that these so-called beneficiaries are going to be used by President Buhari and his APC cohorts to rig the elections.

Reacting to the allegation last night, INEC dismissed the allegations, saying it took exceptions to them.

The commission’s director in charge of Voter Education, Publicity, Gender and Civil Society Liaison, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzi, told Vanguard that the electoral umpire was recruiting members of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC as its ad hoc staff and not N-Power beneficiaries.
He said: “There is a portal that has been opened for recruitment of ad-hoc staff. Nigerians are applying and we do not know who N-Power beneficiaries are most importantly, we are recruiting NYSC members.”
‘’It is when there is a shortfall that we consider students of federal tertiary institutions or ex-corps members, but essentially, we are using corps members and we are not aware that corps members are N-Power beneficiaries.”

Am in the governorship race to correct injustice.(Sen.Hope Uzodinma)

Sen. Hope Uzodinma the gubernatorial flag bearer of the All Progressive Congress(APC) IMO state has revealed that he is contesting in other to correct injustice in the state.

He stated this when he received the endorsement of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), in Imo State, for the 2019 governorship election in the state.
The group led by the chairperson, Mrs Rubby Elele, described the Governor Rochas Okorocha-led administration as unfair to the people of the state and vowed that local government Executives and workers who were allegedly sacked illegally in 2011 by Governor Okorocha will punish him and his son in-law Uche Nwosu with their PVCs.
Uzodinma who expressed joy and gratitude over the honour done to him, promised to address the alleged illegality perpetrated against Imo workers and pensioners by ensuring the payment of their salaries from 2011 till date.
He said: “When I was told that the entire ALGON will pay a visit, I didn’t know how serious the issues were. Not only that you were removed illegally, since then you have not been paid your salaries. We have seen several injustices perpetrated against our people but we have to take a decision and confront this injustice.”
“One with God is majority. Politics is a career and nobody will be happy to cut that career short. It is God that gives power and he gives who he wants. For 305 councillors, chairmen, for any leader to be insensitive to their feelings that leader is not a human being, that is wickedness.
“I want to partner with you, come and have Hope because you have suffered enough. Go back to your various wards, i dont think those who elected you are happy with your condition.
“We want to build a new order; we want to set up a new team that will bring development to Imo state. What we did was to remove this party from one family and gave back to Imo people. We want to give this state to a good driver, not a driver with learners permit but driver’s license. If you don’t get salary today you will get it after three weeks from today.
“Dont be afraid of anybody, APC which i am the candidate is the ruling party. No body will intimidate you. There must be law and order in the state. Whether they are called Imo security Network or Okorocha, dont be intimidated”.
He stated further that “Imo state has a debt profile of over N300bilion since 2015 till date. We will get the money where they kept it to provide good health care, good education, our government by the grace of God will be driven by people oriented projects.
“Power was given to a complacent human being and he mis-used it. I have come to create wealth. We will recover Imo, we will rehabilitate Imo. So help me let us work to the glory of God. When we win the narratives will change and when it changes we will all smile.
“APC in Imo today is stronger and robust. We are better today and that is why people are coming everyday to identify with us. Let us embark in this journey it shall end in praise. When we come we will make sure that every body will pay all out standing salaries and every body will be happy”.
Urging the ALGON to also ensure victory for President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Uzodinma noted that ” President Buhari’s opponents have said he is a man of integrity and have decided to vote him again. We are going to protect our people’s interest” he stated.

UTME: JAMB Registers Over 300,000 In One Week

Benjamin said that this was coming a week after the commencement of the registration exercise.

The board commenced registration of candidates for the 2019 all Computer Based Test (CBT) on Jan.10 and it would close on Feb. 21.

UTME: JAMB to commence 2019 registration in December

According to him, the registration so far has been seamless, and the board is happy with the development.

“We are happy with the way the process is going; we hope it will continue this way.

“So far, we have registered over 300,000 candidates as at Thursday.

“We are happy there have not been issues because so far, there is just a tiny gap between the number of candidates that have acquired the e-pin and that of those that have registered,” he said.

Meanwhile JAMB had insisted that all candidates with issues of biometrics must go over to Abuja for it to be rectified.

“I want to reiterate the fact that only the Registrar of the board has the sole right to attend to such issues.

“Any candidate who may have issues with the capturing of his or her finger prints at their respective points of registration will need to come down to our office in Abuja.

“This will require the Chief Executive to do it himself for the purpose of security,” Benjamin said.

This, however, was contrary to calls by some stakeholders urging the board to set up special centres in every state of the country to tackle issues.

The National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN) had argued that asking candidates with biometric issues to travel all the way to Abuja to get such issues sorted out was too demanding, citing dangers of transportation, fares, among others.

Chief Adeolu Ogunbanjo, the second Deputy National President of the Association, said that most parents were barely struggling to get money to get their children and wards registered.

Ogunbanjo said that for those with such biometric issues, travelling to Abuja was an additional burden.

Obasanjo hits buhari(Nigeria is back to abacha's era)

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo says Nigeria is back to the Abacha era when state institutions were used to fight perceived enemies of the head of state.
Sani Abacha, a general, was the military head of state from November 1993 till his death in June 1998 and was accused of using dictatorial powers to rule the country.
Obasanjo made the remark in an open letter titled ‘Points for Concern and Action’. It was distributed to journalists at a press conference held on Sunday at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun state.
TheCable understands that the former president decided to address the nation following recent developments in the polity, including the trial of the chief justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, over an alleged false declaration of assets.
Obasanjo said: “Today, another Abacha Era is here. The security institutions are being misused to fight all critics and opponents of Buhari and to derail our fledgling democracy. EFCC, Police and Code of Conduct Tribunal are also being equally misused to deal with those Buhari sees as enemies for criticising him or as those who may not do his bidding in manipulating election results.
“Criticism, choice and being different are inherent trade mark of democracy. If democracy is derailed or aborted, anarchy and authoritarianism will automatically follow.
“Today, as in the day of Abacha, Nigerians must rise up and do what they did in the time of Abacha. Churches and Mosques prayed. International community stood by us Nigerians. I was a beneficiary and my life was saved. Well-meaning Nigerians took appropriate actions and made sacrifices, some supreme, some less than supreme but God had the final say and He took the ultimate action.”
Obasanjo was jailed for life by Abacha on 1995 over an alleged coup plot, but he was released in 1998 after the death of the military ruler.
He was then twice elected president of Nigeria, from 1999 to 2007, having been a military head of state himself from 1976 to 1979.
CONCERN OVER ELECTIONS
The former president also expressed “serious concern” over the integrity, impartiality and competence of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a credible election.
He said going by the Osun state gubernatorial election, the forthcoming polls may have “incidences of deliberately contrived, broken or non-working voting machines or card readers, confusion of voters as to their voting stations, inadequate supply of voting materials to designated places, long line to discourage voters and turning blind eyes to favour the blue-eye political party of INEC because the Commission’s hands will be tied to enable hatchet men and women to perform their unwholesome assignment”.
He said the transmission and collation of results are subject to interference, manipulation and meddling while noting that Amina Zakari has become too controversial to take part in the elections.
Obasanjo urged Zakari to “stay out” and “not be seen as a source of contamination of the elections”.
He also accused the All Progressives Congress of “recruiting collation officers who are already awarding results based on their projects to actualise the perpetuation agenda in which the people will not matter and the votes will not count”.
Obasanjo said the alleged recruitment is the “sole reason” the president refused to sign the revised Electoral Reform Bill into law.
CRITICISM FOR VP OSINBAJO
The former president criticised Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo over the “suspect timing” of the implementation of the Trader Moni scheme.
He said: “What an act by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria lawyer, number 2 man in the Executive hierarchy; and what is more, a pastor of one of the Christian movements led by a revered, respected and upright church leader, Pastor E. A. Adeboye. Osinbajo must have gone for, “if you can’t beat them, join them”.
“A great pity indeed and which makes people ask the questions, “Any hope?” Yes, for me, there is hope.
“Osinbajo has shown the human weakness and proved the saying that the corruption of the best is the worst form of corruption. His explanation that it was their government programme can only be construed to be very shallow and lopsided, if not an outrightly idiotic programme.
“Those who criticise the action are called evil but they are not evil as they know what they are doing and saying, and they love Nigeria and Nigerians not less than the likes of Osinbajo. They are not devils incarnate; they are patriots.
“What is the connection between taking the number of PVC (Permanent Voters Card) of the recipient of the N10,000 doled out to ‘traders’ and the forthcoming election? There is something sinister about it, and Professor Osinbajo, of all people, should know that.”
Obasanjo urged Nigerians that are “being intimidated or threatened” to persevere, saying “tough times do not last forever”.

Apc replies obasanjo on his attack against Apc

Following a garage of attacks unleashed by a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, against the person and government of President Muhammadu Buhari, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has issued a statement, saying that the ex-president is being haunted by his past sins.

Asuu to resume talk with FG on Monday

The Academic Staff Union of Universities and the Federal Government are to resume talks Monday ( tomorrow ) on how to resolve the impasse over the two -month- old strike embarked upon by lecturers.
National President of ASUU , Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi , confirmed the development in a telephone interview in Abuja , on Friday.
He , however , said the union was not optimistic about the prospects of an early resolution of the industrial dispute.
In response to a question on whether there had been any fresh development with regard to the resolution of the dispute , Ogunyemi said , “ I ’ am afraid nothing new. I understand they will be meeting us on Monday . Let ’ s wait and see if they take a reasonable step ; it will determine our next line of action. Until then , let ’ s wait and see. ”
The ASUU president had in an exclusive interview with The PUNCH last week said members of the union were tired of government ’ s failed promises .
He said , “ Last year , they promised to release the funds but they did not until November when the strike began. Our members are saying they do not want promises again ; what they want is action, implementation or disbursement of funds .
“ The government must act in a way to convince the union that the agreement has not been set aside. To show that the government has not set aside the agreement , they should release one tranche. ”
He explained that in order to forestall a situation where ASUU and the government would restart negotiations on arrears of earned academic allowances, both sides had agreed that “ it would be mainstreamed into the 2019 budget. ”

Ogunyemi also said , “ We are going to have a discussion on when to commence renegotiation because there are still grey areas . If the government

Inec set off the training of staff on how to detect and counter fake news on election

The Independent National Electoral Commission has commenced a two - day workshop for its Public Affairs Officers on how to detect and counter fake news on election -related matters .
The training , with the theme ,
Fake news , disinformation and Media Monitoring, was held in collaboration with the European Centre for Electoral Support on Friday in Abuja .
The Resident Electoral Commissioner , INEC -FCT , Yahaya Bello, said that the training would equip the officers on new strategies on how to handle fake news , which has been a concern to the commission.
Bello said that the training would no doubt equip the officers to discharge their duties effectively as the commission prepares for the conduct of free , fair and credible elections .
“ As you already know , the dissemination of fake news has very negative effects not just on elections but other areas of life and must therefore be identified and discountenanced.
“ In particular , INEC is concerned with a situation where mischievous individuals post unofficial election results on the internet . This has the tendency of fomenting violence and mayhem resulting in the loss of precious lives and property .
“ It is on record that fake news gave birth to break up of diplomatic relations of countries, while in other cases resulted into wars or unjustified invasions only to come to terms with the true situation much later and leave the rest to history . ’’
Bello said that in the recent times, INEC severally had its share of fake news, especially after the temporary suspension of the Continuous Voter Registration .
The Executive Director, ECES , Mr Fabio Bargiachi, disclosed that ECES had delivered hard and software that would be installed in the coming days establishing National Media Centre for INEC.
Bargiachi, represented by Dominique Weerts , ECES Senior Capacity Development Expert, said that the centre was established on the request of INEC and in line with recommendations of EU Observation Mission in Nigeria in 2015.
“ The skills and expertise you will acquire from this workshop will be directly relevant to the functioning of this centre . Further support will be considered in due course to expand, strengthen and widen the scope of the media monitoring unit . ’’
Bargiachi said that ECES was committed to contribute to deepening the democracy , saying “ that is why I believe INEC places great store on capacity building so as to cement the gains of previous elections . ’’
He added that the aim of the training was to enhance the officers’ understanding on fake new, by looking at the existing regulatory frameworks governing the media, explore cases of fake news and elections in other parts of the world .
Bargiachi said that was to critically , sharpen the tools at the officers’ disposal to spot and mitigate increasing scourge of fake news and disinformation.

Wike vows to restrict any plot by the inec to postpone rivers election

Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the alleged plot by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the 2019 general elections in Rivers state to allow the All Progressives Congress (APC) prepare, will be resisted.
The governor disclosed this on Saturday at the state PDP rally at Okehi.
He alleged that INEC is working in liaison with the APC to illegally postpone Rivers elections and allegedly create room for manipulation.
Wike recalled that INEC had, two years ago in Ondo State, established the precedent that no election would be postponed on the account of intra-party crisis.
“We know all the tricks of INEC. INEC is a fraudulent institution that lacks credibility. Because of Rivers State, INEC will sink.
“As the election is approaching, INEC is trying to give hope to APC in Rivers State. Remember that INEC is a member of the APC. It is number three on the APC official register.
“Two years ago, PDP had a problem in Ondo State. Three days to the election, the Court of Appeal gave judgement and PDP requested for postponement, but INEC bluntly refused to grant that request.
“Now APC has a problem and INEC is claiming they will postpone Rivers elections to give APC opportunity to prepare. I am warning INEC not to try that rubbish in Rivers State “.
The governor said that the INEC Commissioner who is circulating the negative propaganda should seek God’s forgiveness or face divine consequences.
“Anybody plotting against Rivers State will not survive”, he said.
Speaking on the forthcoming elections, Governor Wike urged the people of the state to vote for Atiku Abubakar and other PDP candidates on 16th February and 2nd March, 2019.
He said a vote for Atiku Abubakar will lead to the revival of the national economy, which will provides employment.
Also speaking at the campaign, the National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus said that Governor Wike deserves a second term because of his outstanding projects delivery.
The PDP National Chairman warned that any attempt to rig the forthcoming elections will lead to crisis.

Asuu will communicate its decision on FG offers today.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will today communicate its decision on the offers made to it by the Federal Government, its National President Prof Abiodun Ogunyemi said yesterday.

The union had urged the government to show concrete evidence of commitment to agreements on meeting its demands on its on-going strike.
Ogunyemi said that contrary to some media reports, the union did not reject the government offer neither has it make fresh demands.
Labour & Employment Minister Chris Ngige, after meeting with the union on January 4, said the government was about resolving the dispute with the lecturers who embarked on strike on November 5, last year.
Dr. Ngige said the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Accountant- General of the Federation had provided evidence that N15.4 billion for the payment of salary shortfall in public universities.
He also noted that there was evidence that Mr President had approved N20 billion to offset the outstanding arrears of the 2009 and 2012, audit verified earnings in the university system.
The minister, however, said the fund was being worked on and would be released to ASUU as soon as the process was complete, among other demands of the union.

The ASUU president said: “We have been reviewing the offer made by the government and we have concluded our consultations with our members.
“We have concluded our consultations and hopefully by tomorrow we are going to transmit the feedback from our members to the Minister of Labour and Employment.
“What we said was that we are not insisting on having the total package. We are saying if government could give us one out of the five tranches on the revitalisation fund it will be a kind of bending backward in the interest of the students and national interest.
“So, rather than insisting that government should release a total of one trillion naira which we know is not feasible, government can, at least, give one tranche that can be spread over four quarters, starting with the first quarter now.
“This is the shift that the media are misinterpreting to mean a fresh demand. There is no fresh demand on our list whether you are talking of revitalisation or earned academic allowance.”
On the issue of earned academic allowances, he said government had promised to release N20 billion and that the balance would be spread over four instalments but without stating timelines.
Ogunyemi said members of the union were insisting on having timelines for the payments.
He said: “Our members are also saying government had also promised to mainstream and that promise is not new, it was a promise of 2017.
“Our members have also noted that government had promised that the earned academic allowance will be paid within the mainstream budget which they also promised to do in 2018, yet they did not do it
“Our members are saying if you are promising again in 2019, let us see the evidence, which is clear enough.”
Ogunyemi also said that members of the union were demanding to see money of salary shortfall paid into their accounts although they had seen the evidence of approval on paper.
He said that the members of the union were demanding for concrete evidence on all outstanding areas that involved payments.
Ogunyemi said: “Our members are saying let us see concrete evidence that government has paid not that government will be promising that it will do this and will do that.
“We did that with the N20 billion in 2017, government promised to release N20 billion in two instalments for September and October, 2017, that never happened until we went on strike in 2018.
“So, our members are saying, let’s go beyond writing anything on paper.
“Like I said earlier, on the issue of revitalisation, our members are saying we should not stop at tokenism.”
