Boko-Haram Invades Oyo State… To Seek Bullet Proof Jazz

AS the military assault against the Boko Haram sect continues in some Northern states, members of the sect might have concluded plans to infiltrate the South-West to seek traditional medicine protection from gunshots.

Sunday Tribune gathered that the last few weeks have seen large-scale efforts being made by people believed to be members of the sect to contact native doctors in Oke-Ogun area of Oyo State, especially Saki, for bulletproof charms.

Incidentally, Saki and some other Oke-Ogun towns have a very strong Islamic orientation with a large population of northerners, especially cattlemen, already making the area a home.

According to a source who claimed to be in the know about the recent attempt to seek Yoruba traditional protection by the Boko Haram members, a huge amount of money ranging from N5 million to N10 million was said to be on offer “if the amulet is made and tested okay.”

“Recently, some strange people have been coming to Oke-Ogun for traditional bulletproof and most of these people are Northerners, though their contact persons are Yoruba. What we learnt was that anyone that facilitates the Boko Haram’s contacts’ meeting with a herbalist, who could make a potent charm would also get a commission of 40 per cent, with the remaining 60 per cent going to the herbalist,” the source said on condition of anonymity.

No End In Sight: The Strike Is Far From Over – ASUU

Contrary to optimistic reports that it might soon come to an end, the management of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said that the academic strike, which it embarked on 89 days ago, will continue.

This latest update on the strike, which has crippled academic activities in universities across the country, was given in a statement yesterday by the chairman of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) chapter of the body, Karo Ogbinika.

This is in spite of the intervention by Vice President Namadi Sambo in bringing the lecturers back to the negotiation table.

Dr. Ogbinika reportedly said that ASUU pulled out of negotiations with the Federal Government, which was represented by Benue State Governor Gabriel Suswam, last month based on the government’s insincerity and non-commitment.

He said the Presidency intervened, calling for another round of meetings with Vice President Namadi Sambo last week which, according to ASUU, also ended in a stalemate.

The teachers are seeking proper funding of education and the payment of their N87 billion earned allowances.

These are part of the 2009 agreement between the teachers and the government. The government has offered N30 billion for the earned allowances and made available N100billion for projects on the campuses. The lecturers rejected the offer. The strike has been on since July 1.

The union said it was disappointed because it hoped the Presidency’s intervention would dampen the tension the strike had generated; but, rather, the government was re-echoing the same stance by Suswam, which was why ASUU withdrew from the negotiation.

ASUU said: “After the meeting on September 19 with the Vice-President, it is clear that the Federal Government is merely paying lip service to education in Nigeria and deceiving the public on its commitment to its transformation agenda.

“The Nigerian people should not be deceived. How can there be a meaningful transformation when the education sector is neglected and gradually taken over by private entrepreneurs, including government functionaries who are busy building private universities with stolen funds in and outside Nigeria. Can these universities be truly called private?

“ASUU is assuring Nigerians that it will not back out in its struggle to ensure that the government is made to do what is right in the education sector. This is a commitment that all members of the union have vowed to pursue to its logical conclusion.”

The union said it had reported back to its various zones many of which still insisted the strike must continue.”

Students Groan As ASUU Strike Affects NYSC Mobilization

The rippling effects of the thirteen week-old strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, in protest of federal government’s failure to implement the 2009 agreement, has started to tell on the nation’s public universities.

Students from the public Universities, who are due for their one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme in the next batch (‘C’), now fear that they may be unable to take part in the mandatory programme.

A source at the NYSC said students in private institutions have started receiving call-up letters for the 2013 Batch ‘C’ orientation exercise since the scheme must go on.

“We cannot postpone the exercise over the ASUU, Federal Government impasse.

“The mere fact that public institutions have been shutdown for three months is enough fact for prospective candidates to know they would not be enrolled for service, as all clearance needed for their call-up letters were not carried out,” he added.

A final year student, Health Education of the Tai Solarin University, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun state, told DailyPost that the strike has disrupted her personal development plans.

“I had wanted to take up a course after my project while we await our call-up letters. Now the registration for the programme has closed as I could not fulfil all the requirements due to the ongoing strike.

“We only hope that this action would end sooner,” she adds.

Meanwhile, the NYSC Director-General, Brig-Gen. Nnamdi Okore-Affia, has flagged off a two-day national summit on de-briefing/planning of NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme.

The summit on the theme “Repositioning the NYSC SAED Programme to Enhance Service Delivery” is holding at the Lagos State NYSC Secretariat.
