Unilag Set Up Taskforce To Curb Sexual Harassment

The Lagos State University (Unilag) Registrar for Communication, Mrs Taiwo Oloyede, said in a statement that the move“is in continuation of the institution’s unrelenting campaign against the menace of sexual harassment and other forms of inappropriate behaviours.

The institution recently suspended two senior lecturers exposed in alleged sexual harassment in a BBC investigative documentary video, ‘African Eye’.

The documentary also exposed some lecturers of the University of Ghana, Legon.

“The task force has the mandate to examine the extant University of Lagos policy on sexual harassment, receive complaints from faculties, departments and other units concerning matters that border on sexual harassment.

It is to also receive oral and written testimonies from staff and students involved in cases of sexual harassment and recommend appropriate sanction for offenders.

“The task force, in addition to other functions, will put forward counselling and other therapies for mitigating the adverse effects of sexual harassment on victims and carry out other duties aimed at eradicating the ugly trend from the institution,’’ the statement read in part.

The task force is expected to send monthly reports of its activities to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.

Oloyede reiterated the institution’s commitment to stamping out the menace of sexual harassment and related offences from its campuses.

She noted that the university “would spare no effort in ensuring that it remained a foremost citadel of learning and promoting excellence in character’’.

Abstain From AAU Convocation NANS Tells Feyemi

The National Association of Nigerian Students wish to advise the Ekiti State Governor, Dr John Kayode Fayemi to in the interest of justice, recuse himself from the convocation lecture he plans to deliver tomorrow at the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State.

The entire public would recall that in September, 2019, the wife of the governor while on political tour of local governments within Ekiti State caused the death of two promising undergraduates at Federal University, Oye-Ekiti.

Erelu Bisi Fayemi's orderlies mainly from the Counter Terrorism Unit of the Nigeria Police Force had in a broad daylight barbarism, shot at harmless students killing two and injuring many..
Till date, the Ekiti State first family had done everything humanly possible to cover up the sad incident.

One of the slain students, Joseph Okonofua hails from Edo state where Governor Kayode Fayemi is billed to address a convocation lecture.

We maintain our earlier ban placed on the first family of Ekiti state not to visit or attend any program or engage in any activity on Nigerian campuses. It is a strong warning that this leadership will not compromise until justice is done on the #FuoyeKilling.

NANS will not sit idly watching those who sacrifice the blood of Nigerian students for transient power sustainability to further insult the sensibilities of our colleagues.
That Governor Kayode Fayemi is known for arrogance of power and mindless blood letting is enough for him and his family to stay away from our campuses.

The Ekiti State Governor would do well not to dare the resolve of Nigerian students by coming to AAU, Ekpoma as students within and outside Edo state are fully mobilized to stop the sacrilege Fayemi is about to perform.

No Nigerian, however powerful should take the life of another and still roam the nation in search of goodwill when his cloth is soaked with innocent citizens blood.
What impactful lecture will Governor Kayode Fayemi who is unfeeling, uncaring and mafioso in nature deliver in an academic environment?
Should we wait after his exit from Ekpoma to begin to count numbers again?
The deaths around Kayode Fayemi is enough for any of us to become wary of his unsuspecting solicitation for sacrifices.

The management and senate of AAU, Ekpoma should find, immediately, a suitable replacement for Governor Kayode Fayemi as NANS would resist his entrance and stop him from killing more students whose blood he satisfactorily  donate to his oracles in renewal of earthly powers. We insist that we can no longer accept loss of students.

The leadership of NANS hereby directs immediate mobilization for the stoppage of Governor John Kayode Fayemi whose wife superintended over the killing of Joseph Okonofua and Kehinde Dada.

Should the Governor remain adamant, he should prepare more of his CTU officers so as to stroll on the blood of Nigerian students whose lives he cherishes for  his blood consuming deities.
AAU, Ekpoma is certainly the best place to ask pertinent questions as to why Fayemi's wife is licensed to kill people's children, cover up the killings with her privileged status and for Nigerian students to ensure the long awaited justice.

Full Edition of A Raisin In The Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

A Raisin the sun is a play by Lorraine Hansberry that debuted on broadway in 1959. The title comes from the poem "Harlem" (also known as "A Dream Deferred") by Langston Hughes. The story is based upon a black family's experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago's Woodlawns neighborhood.
Walter and Ruth Younger and their son Travis, along with Walter's mother Lena (Mama) and sister Beneatha, live in poverty in a dilapidated two-bedroom apartment on Chicago's South side. Walter is barely making a living as a limousine driver. Though Ruth is content with their lot, Walter is not and desperately wishes to become wealthy, to which end he plans to invest in a liquor store in partnership with Willy, a street-smart acquaintance of Walter's whom we never meet. At the beginning of the play, Mama is waiting for an Insurance check for ten thousand dollars. Walter has a sense of entitlement to the money, but Mama has religious objections yo alcohol and Beneatha has to remind him it is Mama's call how to spend it. Eventually Mama put some of the money down a new house, choosing an all-white neighborhood over a black one for the practical reason that it happens to be much cheaper. Later she relent L's and gives the rest money to Walter to invest with the provision that he reserves $3,000 for Beneatha's education. Walter passes the money on to Willy's naive sidekick Bobo, who gives it to Willy, who absconds with it depriving Walter and Beneatha of their dreams, though not the Youngers of their new home. Meanwhile, Karl Lindner, a white representative of the neighborhood they plan to move to, makes a generous offer to buy them out.

He wishes to avoid neighborhood tension over interracial population, which to the three women's horror Walter prepares to accept as a solution to their financial setback. Lena says that while money was something they try to work for, they should never take it if it was a person's way of telling them they were not fit to walk the same earth as them.

While all these is going on, Walter's character and direction in life are being defined for us by two different men: Beneatha's wealthy and educated boyfriend George Murchison, and Joseph Asagai. Neither man is actively involved in the Youngers financial ups and downs. George represents the "fully assimilated black man" who denies his African heritage with a "smarter than thou" attitude, which Beneatha finds disgusting. While dismissively mocking Walter's lack of money and education. Asagai patiently teaches Beneatha about her about her African heritage; he gives her thoughtfully useful gifts from Africa, while pointing out she is unwittingly assimilating herself into white ways. She straightens her hair, for example, which he characterizes as "mutilation".
A Raisin in the sun by Lorraine Hansberry - edulect.org

When Beneatha becomes distraught at the loss of the money, she is upbraided by Joseph for materialism. She eventually accepts his point of view that things will get better with a lot of effort, along with his proposal of marriage and his invitation to move with him to Nigeria to practice medicine.

Walter is oblivious to the stark contest between George and Joseph: his pursuit of wealth can only be attained by liberating himself from Joseph's culture, to which he attributes his poverty, and rising to George level, wherein he sees salvation.

THEMES IN A RAISIN IN THE SUN 
The play remains a potent touchstone, still speaking to viewers about race, gender roles, family, hope and desperation, capitalism, the American dream, the problem of housing discrimination, how the social, educational, economical and political climate of the 1950s affected African Americans' quest for "The American Dream".

  Lorraine Hansberry (1930-1965) analyzes Northern racism and it cruel effects in her play A Raising in the Sun, which she claims is "specifically [about] Southside Chicago" (Hansberry. YGB 114).

Many social issues including feminism, gender roles, the Black family, and the pan-African movement, as well as events within Hansberry's own life, are interweaved in this play. However, a central theme of A Raisin in the Sun reveals how racism from the housing industry, government, religious leaders, and average Americans supported the segregated housing environment of Chicago...

(a) Dreams, Hopes, and Plans: BENEATHA (Dropping to her knees) Well- I do - all right? - thank everybody! And forgive me ever for ever wanting to be anything at all! (Pursing him on her knees across the floor) FO...

(b) Race: ASAGAI... You came up to me and you said... "Mr. Asagai - I want very much to talk with you. About Africa. You see, Mr. Asagai, I am looking for my identity!" (He laughs) (1.2.98)

(c) Pride: Still, we can see that at some time, a time probably no longer remembered by the family (except perhaps for MAMA), the furnishings of this room were actually selected with care and love and even ho...

(d) Family: RUTH (She finally laughs aloud at him and holds out her arms him and we see that it is a way between them, very old and practiced. He crosses to her and allows her to embrace her warmly but keep...

(e) Poverty: RUTH they said Saturday and this is just Friday and I hopes to God you ain't going to get up here first thing this morning and start talking to me 'bout no money — 'cause I...

(f) Suffering: Weariness has, in fact, won in this room. Everything has been polished, washed, sat on, used, scrubbed too often. All pretenses but living itself have long since vanished from the very atmosphere o...

(g) Dissatisfaction: We can see that she was a pretty girl, even exceptionally so, but now it is apparent that life has been little that she expected, and disappointment has already begun to hang in her face. (1.1.stag...

(h) The Home: MAMA (Looking at him as she would WALTER) I bet you don't half look after yourself, being away from your mama either. I spec you better come 'round here from time to time to get yourself some d...

(I) Gender: WALTER... See there, that just goes to show you what women understand about the world. Baby, don't nothing happen for you in this world 'less you pay somebody off! (1.1.81)

(j) Choices: RUTH (Beaten) Yes I would too, Walter. (Pause) I gave her a five-dollar down payment. (1.2.237)

(k) Sacrifice: WALTER I don't want nothing but for you to stop acting holy 'round here. Me and Ruth done made some sacrifices for you – why can't you do something for the family? (1.1.118)

CHARACTERS IN A RAISIN IN THE SUN BY LORRAINE HENSBERRY

Walter: As Mama's only son, Ruth's defiant husband, Travis's caring father, and Beneatha's belligerent brother, Walter serves as both protagonist and antagonist of the play. The plot revolves around him and the actions that he takes, and his character evolves the most during the course of the play. Most of his actions and mistakes hurt the family greatly, but his belated rise to man hood makes a sort of hero in the last scene. Throughout the play, Walter provides an everyman perspective of the mod-twentieth-century African-American male. He is the typical man of the family who struggles to support it and who tries to discover new, better schemes to secure it economic prosperity. Difficulties and barriers that obstruct his and his family's progress to attain that prosperity constantly frustrate Walter. He believes that money will solve all of their problems, but he is rarely successful with money.

Walter often fights and argue with Ruth, Mama, and Beneatha. Far from being a good listener, he does not seems to understand that he must pay attention to his family members concerns in order to help them. Eventually, he realize that he cannot raise the family up from the poverty alone, and he seeks strength in uniting with his family. Once he begins to listen to Mama and Ruth express their dreams of owning a house, he realizes that buying the house is more important for the family's welfare than getting rich quickly. Walter finally becomes a man when he stands up to Mr. Lindner and refuses the money that Mr. Lindner offers the family not to move in to its dream house in a white neighborhood.
Mama: Mama is Walter and Beneatha's sensitive mother and the head of the younger household. She demands that members of her family respect themselves and take pride in their dreams. Mama require that the apartment in which they live always be neat and polished. She stands up for her belief and provides perspective from an older generation. She believes in striving to succeed while maintaining her moral boundaries; she rejects Beneatha progressive and seemingly un-christian sentiment about God, and Ruth's consideration of an abortion disappoint her. Similarly, when walter comes to her with his idea to invest in the liquor store venture, she condemn the idea and explains that she'll not participate in such un-christian business. Money is only a means to an end for Mama; dreams are more important to her than material wealth, and her dream is to own a house with a garden and yard which Travis can play.

Asagai: One of Beneatha fellow students and one of her suitors, Asagai is from Nigeria, and throughout the ply he provides an international perspective. Proud of his African heritage, he hopes to return to Nigeria to bring about positive change and modern advancement. He tries to teach Beneatha about her heritage as well. He stands in obvious contrast to Beneatha other suitor, George Murchison, who is an arrogant African-American who has succeeded in life by assimilating to the white world.

Again Gunmen Storms Kaduna Technical College

Women Of Owu by Femi Osofisan

In 1821 or thereabouts, the combined forces of the armies of Ijebu and Ife, two yoruba kingdoms in the south of what is now known as Nigeria, along with mercenaries recruited from Oyo refugees fleeing downward from the Nigerian Savannah land, sacked the city of Owu after a seven-year siege.
Owu was a model city-states, one of the most prosperous and beat organized of those times. The Allied forces had attacked it with the pretext of liberating the flouring market of Apomu from Owu control. Owu closed the gates of its formidable city walls, but soon it had to face the problem of drought when the rains stopped in the third year of the siege.
 Owu was a model city-state, one of the most prosperous and best organized of those times. The Allied Forces had attacked it with the pretext of liberating the flourishing market of Apomu from Owu's control. Owu closed the gates of it formidable City walls, but it soon had to face the problem of drought when the rains stopped in the third year of the siege. This was a boon to the Allied Forces of the city, and it was all over.
These Allied Forces, determined that the city must never rise again, reduced the place to complete rubble, and set fire to it. They slaughtered all the males, adult and children, and carried away the females into slavery. Owu was never rebuilt.
So it was quite logical therefore that, as I pondered over this adaptation of Euripides' play, in the season of Iraqi war, the memories that were awakened in me should be those of the tragic Owu War...           F.O

Women of Owu by Femi Osofisan

SITUATION: It is the day after the sack of the town of Owu Ipole by the Allied Forces of Ijebu, Oyo, and Ife. 
The night before, the King, Oba Akinjobi, had fled from the town, with some of his high Chiefs and soldiers, leaving his family behind. The Allied Forces slaughter all the men left in the town, including the male children; and only female children and women have been spared, and made captives. 
The scene is an open space close to the city's main gate, which used to serve as a market but has now been demolished. Visible in the background is the city itself, in ruins, and smoldering. Along the broken wall are the temporary tents of the old market, built of wooden and bamboo stakes, and straw roofs, in which the women are being kept. 
The chorus of women, still invisible in the dark, is singing the dirge, Atupa gbepo nle fel epo*. 
The god ANLUGBUA appears as an old man to two of the women sent to fetch water.

SCENE ONE OF WOMEN OF OWU

ANLUGBUA: Tell me, dear women you seem to come from there – what's the name of the city I see Smoldering over there?

WOMAN: Stranger, you don't know? Look at My tears! That was once The proud city of Owu, reduced to ruin Yesterday.

ANLUGBUA: Ah! Just as I feared!

WOMAN: Those soldiers you see revelling In the camp over there (Points) Dancing and drinking to their victory and may Anlugbua choke them with it! They were the ones who came yesterday and scattered our lives into potsherds.

ANLUGBUA: Yesterday!

WOMAN: Yesterday, old man! For seven years we had held them off, these invaders from ijebu and Ife, together with Mercenaries from Oyo fleeing south from the Fulani forces. They said our oba was a despot, that they came to free us from his cruel yoke! So for seven years they called outside our walls, but were unable to enter until yesterday, when a terrible fire engulfed the city and forced us to open the gate. That was how they finally gained entry and swooped on us...

ANLUGBUA: I don't understand, you said all this happened yesterday?

WOMAN: Yes, and I'd advise you to hurry away as fast as you can, Old man, for if they catch you your life won't be worth a beetle. They are not sparing the life of any male that falls into their hands, whether old or young. Yesterday on the orders of their leader, Okunade, the Maye, and before our very eyes here, they rounded up all our husbands and brothers and sons, and slau_ (stops, choked by emotion)

WOMAN: They slaughtered them! All!

ANLUGBUA: All?

WOMAN: Not one was spared! Not single male left now in Owu, except those who escaped the night before with our King, Oba Akinjobi.

WOMAN: And shame, oh shame! Our women were seized and shared out to the blood-splattered troops to spend the night. Only some of us— we two and the women you see over there were spared, those of us from the noble houses and others whose beauty struck their eyes, we are being reserved, they say, for the Generals.

ANLUGBUA: But your priests! Your Chiefs! Your diviners! Why didn't anybody call me?

WOMAN: Call you?

ANLUGBUA: My words were enough, I thought! Whenever any grave danger threatens the town, I said! Whenever some misfortune arrives too huge for you to handle, run to my hill and pull my chain! How was it that no one remembered?

WOMAN: You... You... Who are you?

ANLUGBUA: Three times, I said call my name three times, and I shall be back, sword in hand, to defend you!

WOMAN: Sword! That would have served little purpose this time, I tell you! Because—eh! Yeh!...Yeh! What did you say? You.... You... Mo gbe!... Is it you...? Have I stumbled upon... Impossible! My eyes have not seen a... No! Impossible!

ANLUGBUA: Calm yourself, my dear women. You have nothing to fear!

WOMAN:  It's not you, is it? Let me not Go blind today! It's not, Orisa Anlugbua? Not our ancestor they talk so much about?

ANLUGBUA: I said––

WOMAN: But — (Screams) So it's true, ehn? Help! Help! The god is here! Anlugbua is here! Come and see!

ANLUGBUA: (Hard) Sh! Quiet, I said! Calm yourself, I don't want to be announced! Not yet! You hear!

WOMEN: (Cowed) Yes...Yes...

ANLUGBUA: So go on, tell me all that happened here.

WOMEN: (Whimpering with fright) Ah...ah..

ANLUGBUA: (Softening) Listen, this city was very dear to me. I was there when your grand parents built up this little old village of my father into a fortress, and called it Owu. I Anlugbua, Great grandson of Oduduwa, progenitor of the Yoruba race. Together with my great uncles Obatala the god of creativity, Orunmila the god of wisdom and Ogun the god of Metallic ore, We came down from our house in heaven and lent our silent energies to the Labour of the workmen. Unseen, of course. Then Esu bore our wishes up to Edumare, the Almighty Father, and slowly the bricks and the stones and the clay grew into a city enclosed with two walls and a moat around it like a girdle: Owu, the safest place in the entire Yorubaland. But now I return to see–the unimaginable! A city reduced to rubble. How did this happen?

WOMAN: Ancestral father, the armies of Ijebu, Oyo and Ife, who call themselves the Allied forces, under the command of that demon Maye Okunade, caused havoc.

ANLUGBUA: Okunade? Not that man I knew? Gbenagbena Okunade, the one endowed by Obatala with the gift of creativity, to shape wood and stone into new forms? The fabled artist who also dreamed those arresting patterns on virgin cloth?

WOMAN: The very one! But when his favorite wife, Iyunloye, was captured and brought here, and given as Wife to one of our princes, Okunade became bitter, and swore to get her back. Shamed and disgraced, He abandoned his tools and took to arms. And so fierce was his passion for killing, that he rose rapidly through the ranks, and soon became the Maye an artist? He's a butcher now!

ANLUGBUA: How sad! How really sad!

WOMAN: That's the latest sign of his new calling now, that ruin you are looking at anlugbua! All your shrines drenched in blood of your worshippers, all your sacred symbols wiped out by fire! Right up to the Grove of your mother, Lawumi, whom we have always venerated, Anlugbua, Maye and his men pursued their victims, and Cut off their heads. Then they stuck them on stakes which they carried in triumphant dance off their camp, over there.

ANLUGBUA: Even my mother's shrine!

WOMAN: All night long and all of today the invaders have been looting our city, turning it into a wreck, violating our sacred shrines and groves. Now, they are back in their camp, each of these pirates to sort out the plunder, and allot our city's riches to their soldiers and servants.

WOMAN: Meanwhile they make us wait here in abject terror, Expecting the worst, and unable even to mourn our sons and husbands.

ANLUGBUA: No more: I understand. It is the law of victory, the law of defeat...

WOMAN: Maye besieged our city for seven full years, Because of a woman, and would not go away! For seven full years, the people of Owu suffered and refused to open the city gates.

WOMAN: Seven years without rain they were, seven years of failed harvests. All those terrible years where were you Anlugbua?

ANLUGBUA: You did not send for me! You know the oath I made forbade me to return Here, unless you sent for me!

WOMAN: After those three years, the city began to starve of food and fruit, and the streets stank of diseases and death. But we never ceased to worship you, or pour libration at your shrine! Where were you, Anlugbua?

ANLUGBUA: When I was leaving the world– when I dipped my sword into the earth and became a mountain — I left an iron chain for you, and said, pull it whenever you need me –

WOMAN: How we needed you all the time! It was a war, such as we had never known before: The Allied Forces came with weapons they call guns Guns, Anlugbua! Deadly sticks which explode, and turn a whole battalion into corpse. Rags upon rags of bleeding flesh!

WOMAN: Among us not one man had ever seen  weapon like that! But the Ijebu troops brought them in abundance! They got them, we learnt, from their trade with the white men on the coast!

WOMAN: Against these terrifying guns, Anlugbua, Your people had only their blades and incantations. Where were you?

ANLUGBUA: Well it's all over now. The Allies have got what they wanted. I've come too late.

WOMAN: Too late to help us. But not too late to witness our final rout.

WOMAN: Not too late to relish this massacre they call war.

WOMAN: Nowadays, when the strong fight the weak, it's called a Libration War to free the weak from oppression.

WOMAN: Nowadays, in the new world order, it is suicide to be weak.

ANLUGBUA: It's very sad, my dear women! But still, with all your tears, I, Anlugbua, I am the real loser here. Gods do not cry. But that only makes the pain deeper still.

WOMAN: So what do you want? What have you come back for? So that we may pity you, we ourselves aches for consolation?

ANLUGBUA: I ask you– without a shrine, without worshippers, What is a god? Who now will venerate us? Who sing our praises among these ruins?

WOMAN: Go back to your heaven, Anlugbua, and learn also how to cope with pain. If only you gods would show a little more concern for your worshippers!

WOMAN: Goodbye, ancestor, we cannot help you. We must return now to our burden, and join the other women to prepare for our life of slavery. (They go).

ANLUGBUA: I confess, I am broken. Farewell, my lost city. Farewell, my dear women, whose arguments shame me. But I promise this will not be the final word in the dirge.
(He goes. Dirge rises. Lights expand now, and pick up ERELU AFIN, where she sprawls on the ground.)

How Do I Check Admission Status On Jamb CAPS

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) also known as Jamb CAPS is a platform created to ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to make provision for a ‘market place’ in the JAMB portal where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points.’

The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut off points. If a candidate fails to meet the cut off mark, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection.

The JAMB CAPS for the 2019/2020 admission exercise is now active. Candidates can now monitor their admission status and easily know when they have been offered an admission. Once a candidate has been offered admission on JAMB CAPS, such candidate is required to do either of two things; to accept the admission or to reject it.

Schools have already started uploading their Admission Lists on JAMB Portal. We therefore advise candidates to closely monitor their admission status on JAMB CAPS so as to do the needful as soon as possible.

Some schools may not publish list of admitted candidates on their own portal or notice board. So for candidates that applied for admission in such schools, the only way to know when they have been offered admission is to check their admission status on JAMB CAPS.

Students Unionism in Nigeria: Pains and Gains

WHAT IS STUDENT UNION?. 
These are collection of recognized Individuals by school authority in an Institution. Leaders are been elected or selected to head this Union. These leaders are formed to promote and defend the welfare needs of students community and to SERVE as a bridge between the management, government and students.

BRIEF HISTORY HOW IT BEGINS IN NIGERIA
It all started with West African student union (wasu) which was pioneered by west African students in London in 1925 was according to records, the first step into unionism, by Nigerian students. The solanke and bankole bright led wasu fought for improved welfare for all African students in London. Their influence in Nigeria brought about NUNS (NATIONAL UNION OF NIGERIA STUDENTS). which premiered in the university of ibadan. NUNS now NANS(NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA STUDENTS). has it wings spread across all tertiary institutions in Nigeria in form of SUG.
history copied from Olushinaola Taiwo

THE PAIN OF STUDENTS UNIONISM IN NIGERIA
 government, and authorities of our institution all share various degrees of blames in brewing and giving rise to unrest in our institutions of learning in Nigeria..
UNIONISM is a bittersweet experience. Hence, if you must involve be prepared for the PAINs. 
These involves;

1. Rustication: be prepared for Rustication and humiliation. Be prepared emotionally to tackle this pain. History will always be there to tell the future., I remember vividly 2years ago if m not mistaking, the uniben student union president and four others were rusticated due to a peaceful demonstration on Nov 4, 2017, after uniben authorities had increased our fees. Also unilag students leaders were Rusticated 4years ago, . For a two day peaceful protest for students welfare. April 6&7.

2. SLAVERY: Be ready to sell yourself and be controlled By management and others. Everybody requires your loyalty, but to avoid this, you must be loyal and speak for your students if you must not be sold. Be on the students side not management. Get ready to be insulted and bamboozled by ur students if you turn a slave, get ready for emotional, and psychological pain.

 3. Imprisonment: also be prepared to go to prisons. This is part of the the pain in UNIONISM, it is not an easy task or pain to bear. 
The students union leaders of obafemi awololo university was imprisoned for refusing management orders and was arrested while addressing their fellow students. March 3, 2018.
Flash back, to 2016. When the union leader of auchi poly was harassed by soldiers brought by the rector because he wanted an election and not appointment. Be prepared for this

 4. DEATH: This is one of the pains left behind for our beloved once and family to bear. Remember William Obong? The secretary General of the sug UNIBEN, who was murdered due to his resistance to cultism and management... (rip). In 1971, in the university of ibadan, students demanded the removal of an official in the university during the demonstration, tear gas and ammunition was used by the police and a student adekunle adepoja was shot and killed.

The Gains of Student Unionism
This is a sweet one, every body thinks money money money is the Gain of UNIONISM...
If you contest an election with the aim that you want to make money. You will fail. Your gain will turn to frustration.

Students unionism builds an individual
The person who has undergone through this Union can now be able to tell good from bad and makes them to stand firm in decision making, meaning they won't tell you this and be doing contrary to what they have said. It tells you the real you. Your integrity won't be in the lips. It is shown to the world.

 Connections
UNIONISM makes us meet lot of person we won't meet ordinary, it gives us the opportunity to interact with influential people... Make good use of your connections.

Sense of humour
Students Unionism assist Students to 
develop their organizational abilities and strength of character that prepare
them for higher responsibility in the near future. A good Student Union
leadership provides the leverage for the student community to strive into the
socio-economic and political spheres of the institution and the larger society.
 And lots more
 Conclusions
It is pity that, UNIONIST today seek for gains, and try to avoid the pain, remember that you write your history yourself during your service as a union leader, POSTERITY will never forgive you, for your evil deeds... Be remember for your good struggle like Moses Oisakede.

Fun Fact About Nigeria

The name ‘Nigeria’ was coined by Flora Shaw. She was the wife of Lord Lugard – a British soldier who paved the way for Nigeria’s amalgamation and became the first Governor-General of Nigeria. Flora drew inspiration from the great river Niger and combined the words ‘Niger’ and ‘Area’ to form ‘Nigeria’.

Nigeria became a British protectorate in 1901. Colonization lasted until 1960, when an independence movement succeeded in gaining Nigeria its INDEPENDENCE. Nigeria first became a REPUBLIC in 1963 but succumbed to military rule three years later after a bloody coup d'état.


The Nigeria national football team played their first international match against Sierra Leone in Freetown on 8 October 1949.

It took a lot of passion, determination, and selflessness from many great Nigerians to make our independence day a reality in 1960. Here are just a few Nigerians who were instrumental to this cause:

Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe –   known as ‘Zik’, he was the first elected President of Nigeria after independence

 Obafemi Awolowo –    he introduced free education in the Western region of Nigeria and also founded Action Group.

Sir Ahmadu Bello –     founded the Northern People’s Party (NPP) in 1951 which later joined forces with Nnamdi Azikiwe’s NCNC party to fight for independence from the British.

Land Use Decree of Nigeria 1978

The traditional systems of land ownership in Nigeria were considered to be grossly inadequate in solving the problem of agricultural development in the country. Such problems as infighting between individuals and communities on land matters, monopoly of lands by few advantaged individuals, excessive land fragmentation as a result of importance, difficulty in acquiring land either by individuals, groups or even governments, lack of security to land ownership. It was as a result of these problems and in order to give impetus to agricultural development in the country that the Federal Government on March 29, 1978 promulgated the Land Use Decree.
The Decree, which was aimed at encouraging a proper and efficient utilization of land for better agricultural productivity has the following objectives:
(I) To assert and preserve by law the rights of every Nigerian to land in the country.
(II) To create incentive for development by making land easily available to governments and individuals.
(III) To rationalize land use in order to facilitate rapid economic and social transformation in Nigeria.
In essence, the land use decree:
a. Says all land in the country are vested in the Federal Government of Nigeria to be held in trust for the people that is, the acquisition and use of land for whatever purpose are to be controlled by the Federal Government.
b. Empowers each state Government to act on behalf of the Federal Government in all matters related to land in the State.
c. Says that before anybody could be legally recognized as owning any piece of land in the country, he/she must have applied to the State Government, paid for the land and thereafter be issued with Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) on the acquired land.
d. Allows every Nigerian to Acquire land for use once he/she has attained the age 21 years.
Implication of the Land Use Decree
(I) With the Decree, individual ownership of land whether developed or undeveloped now ceases and the only relationship between an individual and the land is that of use.
(II) With the land use decree, there will be enough land for agriculture and industry.
(III) The land use decree does not disposes any Nigerian of his/her acquired property which is being lawfully and optimally used.
(IV) With the decree, the practice of some privileged individuals whereby they buy up large tracts of land with the intent of obtaining high prices in future is prevented.
(v) Any individual above the age of 21 years is allowed to apply for certificate of occupancy or land ownership.
The advantages of land use decree lies in the fact that the land use decree makes it easier to acquire larger parcel of land for agriculture thereby encouraging commercial agriculture. It makes it possible for anybody to acquire land and helps to curb the excesses of land speculators.
   On other hand, some of the disadvantages of land use decree include the fact that the decree makes it further possible for privileged individuals in the society and government to have undue adavantage in land acquisition. It makes land held by inheritance insecure. Also, it is often very difficult to obtain land from government sources because of the frustrating bureaucratic/administrative bottle-necks.

Agricultural Laws and Reforms
(b) Traditional Land ownership and Tenure Systems in West Africa: Land tenure system can be defined as the system of land ownership or acquisition by individual, family, community or government agency either for temporary or permanent use.
   There are different land systems in West Africa, these include;
i) Individual land tenure system
This is the system whereby the land belongs to an individual. The individual could derive his ownership right either by inheritance or outright purchase or as a gift. This system is also refers to as freehold ownership.
Advantages
1. It gives the owner complete freedom on the land. He may sell it leave it, farm on it, lease/rent it out to another farmer.
2. The land can be used as collateral for agricultural loans.
3. Mechanized agriculture can be profitably practiced.

Disadvantages
1. Leads to excessive land fragmentation which makes the land very difficult and uneconomical to work.
2. Land is not readily available to everybody.
3. Sharing of land among children of a deceased father is usually a delicate affair generating bitter enmity among family members.
4. It is very difficult to assess how far the individual has the right to use and control a piece of inherited land freely.
5. Land is not usually sold out because some feel that it will rob future generations of the opportunity go inherit it.
(II) Communal Land Tenure
This is a system of land ownership in which the land belongs to a given community. (a large family or village). The land is usually allocated to members by the head of the family or the community.
Advantages
1. Every member of the community inopportune to farm each season and to grow annual/biennial crops.
2. It encourages co-operative farming.

Disadvantages of Land Tenure
1. The system relies on plenty of land for fallow.
2. It leads to fragmentation of land into small and scattered units.
3. It also discourages co-operative effort of individual farmers and therefore leading to the non adoption of modern techniques of farming.
4. Permanent crops like oil palm, cocoa, rubber etc cannot be established because the land would be reallocated later.
5. It discourage permanent land improvement such as building of farm structures and alley farming.
6. The land cannot be used as a collateral security in obtaining loan for agricultural production.

(III) Rent Tenancy/Lease Hold
In this system, an individual or a group can acquire land through rent or lease hold agreement. The owner of the land receives rents on the land each season either in cash or in kinds or if on leasehold, an agreed amount is paid for the period the lease would last.
   This system of land ownership gives partial freedom on land. The land, however, cannot be used as security for obtaining agricultural loans. Only moderate land improvement can be effected on the land by the user.
Mechanization can only be introduced if the size of the farm is large enough, but permanent crops cannot be established. The land user could go on to put the land to use other than agricultural production.

(IV) Government
Land can also be acquired through the state government in accordance with the Land Use Decree of 1978. Land acquired through the government usually becomes a property of the person or group that acquired it and as such the person or group is at liberty to use the land as is the case of freehold ownership.
Other systems are ownership by gift/donation, purchase, pledge etc. Where land is acquired by gift/donation, the owner pays nothing for it. The land may however not be secured when the donor is no more.
