I hope God is not mad at us as a Nation and has totally washed His hand off our case. Can someone tell me which way forward with Nigeria before I totally go crazy”

University not for poor – VC

The Management of the state-owned Edo University, Iyamho,(EUI), says the institution was established to essentially cater for academically-endowed students and the wealthy in the society.

The Vice Chancellor(VC) of the institution, Prof. Emmanuel Aluyor, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, in Iyamho-Uzairue, in the Estako-West local government area of Edo that the university offers world-class infrastructure and state-of-the art facilities hence the high fees.


According to him, the fees range from between N400, 000 and N450, 000 a session.

“And that depends from which perspective you are looking at it.
“If it is from the perspective of a private university, our fees are very low indeed, because there is no private university that charges anything lower than what we offer.
“And only one or two public universities charge the same fees as us and that also depends on the quality of infrastructure and programmes on offer.
“The idea of the founding fathers is for anyone to have an ambiance of everything he desires abroad in any university environment here,’’ Aluyor said.
“I am proud to mention that we have a dress code among our students, while all our lectures are multi-media assisted.
“We may not be proud of this information that in our first year, we had less than 80 students admitted. But I can tell you that we had cause to expel four of them.
“We may be young; but it does not mean we will accept every Dick and Harry as students. I think what we did was showing capacity to instil discipline.
“We have also had cause to sanction three members of staff. We are not happy to have sent them into the unemployment market.
“But we are saying that if you can not measure up with the standard we have set down, you certainly can’t be part of the vision of the founding fathers of this university,’’ he said.

Photoss: Sterling Bank, Olamide Baddo excite with Skate and Clean flash mob


After a dreary weekend marred by flash floods, the resilient city of Lagos has gotten its groove back. Thanks to a colourful flash mob of street sweepers that toured the metropolis for three days doing choreographed dances while “cleaning” on the go.
Aptly named Skate and Clean, the youthful and colourful team of street sweepers on skates were led by A-list hip hop artiste, Olamide Adedeji popularly known as Olamide Baddo.
Quite a spectacle, they wore and added class to the bright orange overall uniform of the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) employees, courtesy of Sterling Bank.









Skate and Clean was initiated by Sterling Bank as a pre awareness campaign for the Sterling Environmental Makeover (STEM) programme. STEM is Sterling Bank’s corporate social responsibility initiative which promotes practices that protect the environment for the benefit of humanity in 14 states of the federation. This year’s flagship cleaning exercise is at the popular Computer Village market on Saturday, August 12, 2017.
For three days, using the power of music and dance, the youthful street sweepers toured Lagos on skates cleaning and dancing to a special theme song produced byOlamide Baddo. In the melodious theme song, Olamide Baddo waxed lyrical while imploring Nigerians to keep their environment clean and shun dumping of refuse in drainages.

In addition, the timely Skate and Clean flash mob vigorously proclaimed the positive STEM message on hygiene and sanitation in order to influence lifestyle change among Nigerians. The Skate and Clean flash mob attracted a large crowd and following as they move around commercial and residential hot spots that include Apongbon, Marina, Osborne, Ojota, Maryland, Ikorodu and Victoria Island, all in Lagos.
The crowd rocked and danced to the hip, melodious and club ready STEM theme song recorded by Olamide Baddo to tackle the menace of indiscriminate dumping of refuse in the drainage and its negative impact on the environment. The star artiste urged the crowd to protect and keep the environment clean.

Last year, the MD/CEO of Sterling Bank, Yemi Adeola and popular Nollywood actor, Funke Akindele popularly known as Jenifa, made the news when they led employees of the bank to clean up Oyingbo – one of the oldest and busiest markets in Lagos.
This year, corporates that include L’Oréal, Guinness Nigeria, British Council, Megaletrics Limited, Viacom, DAAR Communication, Businessday Newspaper, Seahorse Shawarma and Wecyclers, are partnering with Sterling Bank to make the national cleaning exercise a success.
Launched eight years ago as a cleaning exercise promoting sanitation and hygiene, STEM has evolved into a national force championing the cause of the environment.
It presently covers public enlightenment campaigns, partnership with waste management agencies in 14 states, tree planting to combat desertification in parts of Northern Nigeria and an annual national cleaning exercise.

According to the BBC, Okorocha, who was part of the delegation, said he expects President Buhari to return home from the UK within the next two weeks.
Governor Okorocha said President Buhari was completely unperturbed by the cocktail of lies. He, instead, sent his best wishes to Nigerians.
According to the governor, Nigerians don’t have to worry at all, adding that President Buhari will be back as soon as the doctors give him the green light.
