Female Victims To Petition Uniben Authorities

A petition by aggrieved female ex-students of the Department of English and Literary Studies, University of Benin will be submitted next Friday to the authorities of the tertiary institution, The Nation has learnt.

Mr. Aoiri Obaigbo, the convener of the petition drive, is a 1987 graduate of the Department of English and Literary Studies of the university.

Obaigbo said the petition is aimed at unmasking some lecturers in the department notorious for sexually harassing students.

Obaigbo said the petition drive became necessary to ‘investigate inter-generational allegations of sexual harassment of female students by male lecturers at the Department of English and Literature, University of Benin.

He said the petition drive has been on in the last three years.

According to Obaigbo, the objective of the petition is to resist the oppression of current students who are too scared to fight the errant lecturers

He said some female victims (names withheld) had sent petitions to the panel indicting eight lecturers of the department involved in brazen demands for sex from them.

Also a male student made allegations against some of the lecturers, pointing out areas where female students were taken advantage of or denied their grades because they refused to succumb.

The Nation gathered that some of the victims who had earlier testified withdrew their testimonies.

Obaigbo said the wishes of two victims, who for various reasons withdrew their petition, will be respected.

According to him, two of the victims cited different reasons for their withdrawal.

While one said her husband did not grant her permission to be part of the petition, the other stated that her family was concerned about the “diabolical” powers of the lecturer who was alleged to have sexually harassed her.

Youth Empowerment - Civic Education

Youth empowerment is a process of increasing the political, spiritual, social, racial, educational, economic strength of the Youth. It refers to an attitudinal, structural and cultural process whereby young people gain the ability, authority and courage to make decisions and implement change in their own lives and the lives of others. Youth empowerment generally equips the youth with knowledge. And life skills to make them self-reliant and economically empowered as well as enhance their socio-economic status.
   Youth empowerment is very crucial to democracy building and a buoyant economy. The local, state and federal government and non-governmental organizations should be encouraged to provide programs centered on youth rights, youth activism, youth involvement in community decision making, etc. This is because there will be less crimes and criminal activities if the Nigerian youth are engaged in profitable ventures and gainful employment and the society will be at peace.

Youth Empowerment Skills
A skill refers to the natural ability to do something well, usually gained through training or experience. It is an ability to do something, especially because you have learned and practiced it well. A skilled person with expertise in a particular area has the training and experience that is needed to do such. The youths need to be empowered with skills to accomplish various tasks and achieve results. They need a broad range of skills in order to contribute meaningfully to the economy and take their place in the society. There are different youth empowerment skills, some of which include the following;

(1) Manipulative skills: These are skills that involves the use of the hands and body coordination to carry out or perform a task. In manipulative skills, a person learns to handle objects in a skillful or clever way. It also involves working skillfully that is, working with a learned capacity to carry out a task. It is important for the youth to have these skills right from their childhood. Therefore, parents and teachers should train children in manipulative skills and ensure that they practice them.

(2) Life Coping Skills: Coping refers to being able to deal with a difficult problem or situation. It is active problem-solving. The youths need the ability to deal with difficult problems or situations in daily life. Every youth should be good problem solvers. Life is full of challenges that tests strength, skill or ability. Every individual should have the capacity to be able to deal with the challenges as they come. When there are problems or challenges, we need to follow some steps which will help in dealing with those challenges and this in turn gives us better solutions. The steps in dealing with challenges or difficult situations include the following:

(a) Identify the problem or challenge.
(b) Define the problem.
(c) Recognize and accept how you feel about the difficult situation or challenge.
(d) Identify all possible solutions.
(e) Imagine how the same problem might be solved by other people.
(f) Evaluate the strength and weakness of each solution.
(g) Arrange the solutions in a list starting with the least to the best that can be of help.
(h) Make your choice of solution.
When the above steps are taken or followed, you will discover that you are able to cope with the challenges that come your way.

(3) Communicative Skill: Communication is the process by which people exchange information or express their thoughts and feelings. Communication skill, is the learned capacity to be able to talk easily to other people. It is having the capacity to express oneself so that other people will understand. The act of communicating involves verbal, non-verbal and para-verbal component. Effective communication skill will enable you exchange ideas with others, understand other's perspective, solve problems and successfully archive set goals. Every youth should possess good communicative skills. That is every youth should be able to express yourself, your feelings and your needs in a way that is direct and clear.

(4) Intellectual Skills: Intellectual skills refers to the ability to learn, understand and think about things. An intellectual person is someone who is well educated and interested in serious ideas and spends time thinking about the ideas and discussing them. Intellectual skills are connected to critical thinking that helps to draw conclusions based on a number of things such as evidence through observations, and applying various methods to make judgement about things. Intellectual skills have been linked to critical thinking. This is a process whereby problems cam be recognized in the first instance so that methods of resolving them can be employed. Critical thinking can occur whenever one must figure out what to believe or what to do, and do so in a reasonable and appropriate way. Reading, writing, speaking and listening can all be done intellectually or otherwise. Every youth need to possess intellectual skills as this would give them good critical thinking skills to recognize problems and employ various techniques or methods in solving them. To become intellectually sound is to be well educated. The youths therefore, are encouraged to be determined to acquire intellectual skills.

(5) Artistic Skills: These are skills that have to do with the ability to create or invent things. We can develop this skills by taking part in cultural and creative/art activities or competitions, etc. Examples if artistic skills include creating computer graphics, writing fictions, editing, painting, sketching, drawing, singing, dancing, choreography, playing musical instrument etc.
  As a youth, having one or more of the above skills is of great importance and benefit to you and the society at large. Artistic skills in youth prepare them to be active members of the society. The skills enable them to be self-employed and make them to contribute meaningfully to the economy. Today, a lot of youths write books, songs play musical instruments, create computer programmes, etc. for their own benefit and for the benefit of other people.

Agencies Responsible for Youth Empowerment in Nigeria 

(I) The Schools: The school's here include primary, secondary and higher institution level. At the higher institution level we have specialized schools such as technical colleges, polytechnics, universities, etc.
(II) National Agency for Poverty Eradication Programme (NAPEP): This agency was established in Nigeria to help reduce if not completely eradicate poverty in Nigeria. This is done through giving of loans to youth to establish business in various sectors of the economy example transportation.
(III) National Directorate of Employment (NDE): This is a government agency responsible for the training of all categories of youth for empowerment and capacity building.
(IV) Non-Governmental Organizations: Many local and international organizations also help in empowering the youth in Nigeria example Lion's Club, UNAIDS, UNICEF, the Red Cross, etc

Importance And Benefits Of Youth Empowerment Skills 
The importance and benefit of youth empowerment skills, among others include the following:

(a) It helps prepare youths to be active members of their communities and the society at large.
(b) It helps the youth to secure good jobs in future
(c) It helps to prepare youth for leadership positions at work and in the country at large.

Youth is the time of life between childhood and adulthood. Youth empowerment is an attitudinal structure. In this post we have been able to discuss youth empowerment as a process of increasing the spiritual, political, social, racial, educational and economic strength of youths. We also referred to it as an attitudinal, structural and cultural process whereby young people are given the ability, authority and courage to make decisions and implement changes in their own lives and the lives of other people.

Some of the youth empowerment skills that would help the youth as discussed in this post include, Manipulative skills, life coping skills, communicative skills, intellectual skills, and artistic skills all which helps to prepare youth for leadership positions and to become active members of their communities.

Market Structures - Economics

The term "market" is used in two senses in economics. In one sense, it refers to a place where goods and services, are bought and sold. In this sense, a market is physically located in a specific geographical area, for example, the Kenyatta market in Enugu, the capital of Enugu State in Nigeria.
In the second and wider sense, a market means all those buyers and sellers of goods who do business with one another. In this case, a transaction could be conducted through the telephone, telegraph or telex, the post office, a newspaper advertisement or some other communication channels. It could be done without the buyer and seller meeting. Therefore, a market is not only a geographical area, but also a medium or organization through which buyers and sellers can communicate with one another, to exchange goods and services at prices determined by the market forces of demand and supply.

In some markets, there is strong competition among sellers and buyers when the prices of commodities traded in the market are about the same. Economist call such a situation of strong competition, in which the price differences of commodities are small, a perfect market.
   The perfect market is a theoretical economic model. When market structures display varying degrees of imperfection, we call them imperfect markets. Examples of imperfect markets are:
(1) monopoly (single producer- an individual or a firm - supplies the goods or services)
(2) monopolistic competition (several producers providing similar products)
(3) duopoly (two producers of the same commodity)
(4) oligopoly (few producers)
  We shall now discuss these two major types of market structures.

Perfect Competition
The following are the assumptions of perfect competitions or a perfect market.
(1) There is a large number of sellers and buyers, none of whom dominates the market. This means that variations in output by any producer, or in purchases by any buyer, will not affect the market price of the commodity. All the producers are 'price-takers', that is, once the price has been determined by the forces of demand and supply, the producers will sell as much as they can at that price.
(2) The products are homogeneous, or rather, the buyers regard the products as the same and they are, therefore, indifferent as to whom they buy their goods from.
(3) There is no preferential treatment in the selling or buying of the commodity. The commodity bears the same price tag throughout the market.
(4) There is perfect knowledge of the quality and the price of the commodity. The commodity being offered for sale. In other words, consumers have a perfect knowledge of the market.
(5) There is free entry into the market for new firms and free exit for the existing ones.
(6) There is perfect mobility of factors of production. Factors are transferred easily to where they are needed.
(7) No transport costs are involved in moving factors of production and finished goods from one location to another.
(8) Goods are easily moved from one part of the market to another.

Imperfect Competition
A market is described as imperfect when a commodity or service is sold in such a way that free competition does not exit. There are different degrees of imperfection. The imperfect markets commonly dealt with are:
(1) Monopoly: A single seller of a commodity or service.
(2) Monopolistic Competition: The producing firm has a certain degree of monopoly, but it is aware that it's rivals produce similar or substitute goods and this fact affects its price policy.
(3) Duopoly: Two firms sells the same goods or services.
(4) Oligopoly: A few large firms controls the industry.
 Difference Between Perfect and Imperfect Competition

Perfect CompetitionImperfect Competition
There is a large number of relatively small sellers so that variations in output will not affect prices of goods and services.There is one seller, or only a few sellers, whose variations in output affect prices of goods and services.
Products are homogeneous. One product must be a perfect substitute of another, so that when a producer raises his price above equilibrium price, buyers will buy from other sellers.Products are not homogeneous. They are differentiated by, for example, brand name, special packaging, quality differences and advertising. When the producer raises his price, some buyers will still patronize him.
Consumers have perfect knowledge of the ruling price in the marke; producers are aware of the extent of profits in the industry.Consumers do not have complete knowledge of the ruling price in the market.
Firms cam freely enter or leave the market.There is no free movement of firms into or out of the market.
There is perfect mobility of factors of production. They are easily transferred to where they are needed.Prohibition may make free movement of factors of production difficult
No transport costs are involved, as they mean locational disadvantage.Transport cost are involved and these impose an added value on the products, thus causing an increase in the price of the goods.
Goods are movable from one section of the market to another.Immobility is an essential element of imperfect market. Therefore, goods are not movable from one section of the market to another.
The perfect competitor is a price-taker. The graph showing the demand of the firm's products is a horizontal price lineThe imperfect competitor is a price-maker. The graph showing the firm's demand of goods is a downward sloping line, which is similar to the average revenue curve.

Laying of Block ceremony at College of Agriculture Benin

Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, has performed the ground breaking ceremony of the new College of the Agriculture and Natural Resources, Iguoriakhi at Ovia South West Local Government Area of the state.
The College at Iguoriakhi houses the School of Agricultural Technology and Engineering, with two other campuses in Agenebode and Uromi.
Speaking at the ceremony, the governor of Edo state said, as Nigeria diversifies its economy through agricultural development, well equipped agricultural institutions must be established to train the needed manpower.
He said the new college was established because the old college was non-befitting of its status as a tertiary institution.
“When I inspected the old college, the situation was pathetic; the buildings and hostels were dilapidated and not conducive. A clear and new beginning was required after going through the report of the team of enquiry set up to investigate activities of the old college,” he added.
He noted that his administration decided to take the bull by the horn in starting a proper college that would train students who would become employable and also employers of labour.

The governor added that the school would be self-sustaining, while the governing structure of the institution would include the private sector actors.
Obaseki said recruitment of staff into the college was not automatic for staff of the old college, noting that they would need to apply to the college.
The governor also announced the donation of two official vehicles, three buses and three ambulances by the state government to the college.

Earlier, Mr. Destiny Enabulele, Chairman of the council where the school is located, commended the developmental strides of the Governor Obaseki-led administration.
He said the establishment of the new college would bring a sense of hope to the people in the area.
Special Adviser to the Governor on Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security Programme, Joe Okojie, said the school would positively impact the state, noting that the state government has a solid plan for the kick-off of the college.

 The early morning sun dazzled in its characteristic mild beauty sending in rays through the light curtains. I slowly opened and eyes and was happy when i saw my little Princess beside me. "good morning my princess, my most treasure pssession," i said smiling then kissed her forehead. Edward my husband walked in looking so happy. "how is princess doing? he asked then sat beside me, he kissed me then turn to our baby. I was so glad to see him happy again, after six years of marriage without a child, this years has been a year of frustration and pains, i was called all sort of names by his family but Edward always stood by me in those days of trials, i thought i was barren and could never bore him a child again until the day i got pregnant, which i felt so happy, am gonna be a mother and Edward a father, atleast i will be free from all those insults. I and my husband Edward nortured our unborn baby with much love and care until the day i gave birth to our princess, she looks so beautiful and we named her ISABEL. I felt so happy to be called a mother and same from Edward, we so much love and cared for her but then we never knew a tragedy will befall.

"to catch some fun with my Princess of course, i also wish you could be their," i said smiling.

"you can do this during weekend, so just get Isabel ready for school," he almost yelled. "Tressa.." he shouted her name and in few minutes Tressa quickly walked in. "please just dressed Isabel and talk to one of my dirver to take her to school," he said then left without sayig anything to me, i quickly walked out to catch up with him but he was too fast.

We walked to the children park and i could see everyone was so happy and they kids were busy playing. "can i play with the kids? my princess asked me but i just smile at her then held her small soft hands. "not yet sweetie, let your grandpa arrive here first," i said to her while she smiled and fixed her gaze at the children playing. I do love Isabel because she's not the disobedient type, she's always calm and sometimes quiet, i brought her some chocolates to keep her busy and in few minutes time my dad arrived. "popsi," i said almost in tears as i quickly hug him tight in tears. "I miss you so much popsi," i said wiping away my tears. "wow, she looks so beautiful, indeed God had bless you with such a beautiful girl after six years without a child," Popsi said while i smile a bit then hug him again.

I asked the security men over their but non seems to know about her whereabout despite showing them her pictures. OMG where could my Princess be, my heart was already beating faster than normal. I and Popsi has been searching for my Princess for about an hour now, my eyes were filled with tears already, what will Edward say about this.

"it wasn't intentional Edward, please understand me, i didn't plan for any of this to happen," i pleaded in tears but to my surprise Edward slapped me hard and threw me out of his house. "am not letting you in my house until the day bring back my daughter, just make sure Isabel is back home before the sun goes down," he yelled at me, this the very first time Edward slapped me, i know it hurts but he have to understand me. Popsi pleaded with Edward but he seems not to here anyone, i was suprise when he even talked back at my dad which make my heart broken. That evening i went round the street with my princess photo asking of her but no one knows of her whereabout, which make me more scared and to shade more tears. "Popsi, she's all that i have got where could Isabel be? i said in tears, i do love Edward so much so i can't afford to loose him, i can't lose two people at the same time i just hope am gonna find my daughter if not am gonna be a laughing stock, i can't survive without her," i said in tears, i was about crossing the road when a car will full speed push me down. "Isa...bel please come back home to your dad!..." i said in pains as tears slide down my cheeks, my heart was beating faster, i just pray Edward will get to find Isabel someday...Popsi quickly ran over me but he came too late, my eyes closed and everywhere was dark....
