I AM WATER — A Poem by Dele Abiola

I AM WATER — A Poem by Dele Abiola

 I AM WATER


I am water

I'm the delight

Of all kids 

To Play with

In all ages



I am water 

I am friendly 

Quench your thirst

I satisfied wholly 

Seasons and times


I am water 

Take your bath

Cook your food

At your services 

I am useful


I am water

Truly really gentle 

Friend to all

I fight none

I've goodly currents 


I am water

Stretch out arms

Swim for pleasure

And good health

Swim for medals


I am water

The God's Spirit 

Howers over me

I am live

From the ancient



I'm raining water

Rinsing the earth

For bountiful harvest 

I sustained all

Plants and animals



I am water

Abode to endless

Species of creatures

Celebrating in deeps

Operating in colonies



I am water

Easy going always

Never loose guard

Dare me at

Your own perils



I'm 'flowing water

I am resilient 

I am persistent

Never give up 

Breaking the rocks



I am water

I'm not destructive

Obstacles and refuses

On my route

Are the evils



I am water 

of great rivers 

Arere and araba

Of rambling trees

Can't withstand me

 


I am water

In every fight 

Destructive fury fire

Overwhelmed by shame 

Bows before me

 


I am water

I spare none 

In my path 

For I'm water

With forceful currents


I'm deep water

Speaking to deeps

Let the deeps

Drink from roaring

Deep deep water

NIGERIAN ARMY EXTOLS NATIONAL DEFENCE COLLEGE INNOVATION FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

NIGERIAN ARMY EXTOLS NATIONAL DEFENCE COLLEGE INNOVATION FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT







The Nigerian Army (NA) has commended the innovation and reform strides of the National Defence College (NDC) in terms of course packages and exercises, which over the years have produced well-trained strategic leadership for the Armed Forces, Ministries, Departments, and allied nations across the world.


The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Major General Taoreed Lagbaja made the commendation when he received the audience of the Commandant NDC, Rear Admiral Olumiyiwa Morakinyo Olotu, and members of his entourage at the Army Headquarters, Abuja. He described NDC as a reliable citadel of learning and through their research efforts, NA was able to carry out reforms, and interventions across the country and improved operational efficiency and administrative tasks. The COAS noted that through the efforts of the college, the NA was able to have well-trained senior officers manning strategic positions across NA formations with outstanding performance. 


The Army Chief averred that NA will continue to rely on the college for the training and education of strategic leadership cadre while appreciating other areas of partnership and relationship that exist between the two institutions. The Army Chief assured the College of continuous partnership in ensuring that the nation continues to witness much-desired development, peace, and stability. 


The COAS while congratulating the Commandant on his well-deserved appointment, appreciated the excellent relationship between the College and the NA, assuring that the NA under his command is disposed to supporting the College, including the provision of observers from Army Headquarters for joint exercises adding that through such avenues, officers will learn new techniques and be better informed for the overall development of the Armed Forces.


Earlier in his remarks, the Commandant NDC, Rear Admiral Olumiyiwa Morakinyo Olotu while congratulating the COAS noted that NDC as the highest military institution in the country provides strategic level training for officers of the Armed Forces, senior civilians of ministries, officers of para-military institutions, foreign officers from allied countries among others.

The Commandant highlights the current activities of the college since its inception especially the training and preparing of senior officers for appointment at the strategic and international level adding that the college is striving to become better. He thanked the COAS for his continuous support to the college and for securing critical facilities of the college.

Collaboration: A Sure Path to Revolutionising African Research and Development - Adepehin

Collaboration: A Sure Path to Revolutionising African Research and Development - Adepehin

So, I walked into a colleague's office and found my unpublished manuscript opened on her computer screen. 


A senior collaborator I shared the work with for his input forwarded it to her. I was certainly disappointed, but that is not the subject for now.


Today, I am addressing the rather low contribution of African researchers to the global research pool. Though it is home to about 1.3 billion of Earth's inhabitants, the African continent produces a meagre 2 percent of world research output, accounts for only 1.3 percent of research spending, and produces 0.1 percent of all patents. It's ridiculous, right?


I admit that several factors, such as low investment in research, poor research culture, insufficient capable personnel in tertiary education systems, and overburdening existing academic staff with non-research engagements, among others, have contributed to this. 



Nevertheless, a hidden root cause is poor teamwork and wrong mindsets. The 'publish or perish' syndrome has done Africa no good, as huge amounts of substandard manuscripts are rolled out to predatory journals whose watchword is 'pay and get published.'


Some poorly crafted papers could have made novel contributions if only authors were open-minded enough to seek the expertise of colleagues from their institutions, nations, and other parts of the World. 


Collaboration is essential for advancing knowledge, solving complex problems, and making breakthrough discoveries. By working together, scientists can achieve more than they could on their own and make a greater impact on the world. Let me make a few remarks about these highlighted benefits!


Collaboration allows scientists with different areas of expertise to work together to solve complex problems. By pooling their knowledge and skills, they can often achieve more than they could working alone. Collaborating scientists can share access to expensive equipment, specialized facilities, and research materials. This can reduce costs and increase efficiency. 


Scientific collaboration increases productivity- collaborators can divide tasks, work in parallel, and share the workload, which can lead to increased productivity and faster completion of projects.


Research partnerships can lead to more rigorous and comprehensive research by bringing together diverse perspectives and ensuring that research is peer-reviewed and critiqued by experts in multiple fields. 


Perhaps one of the most striking benefits of collaboration is its strong potential to enhance innovation. Collaborating scientists can spark new ideas and approaches by sharing insights and brainstorming together. This can lead to new findings and innovations.


However, collaboration is not just about sharing resources and knowledge; it also requires the right mindset to be successful. Developing the right mindset for collaboration involves several key principles, including trust, openness, respect, and a willingness to learn and adapt.


Trust is the foundation of any successful collaboration. It allows team members to rely on each other, share information and knowledge, and work together towards a common goal. 

Without trust, collaboration can quickly break down, leading to misunderstandings, conflicts, and frustration. 


You can probably understand why I felt disappointed at what the professor who shared my unpublished work did. Our collaboration certainly died a natural death, although I sometimes feel I could have managed the situation better. To develop trust, team members should be transparent about their actions and intentions, communicate openly and honestly, and hold themselves accountable for their commitments.


Another critical principle for collaboration is openness. Being open means being receptive to new ideas and perspectives and being willing to accept feedback and criticism. Openness also means being willing to share information and knowledge freely, without fear of judgment or reprisal. When team members are open, they can build on each other's strengths and weaknesses, creating a more robust and effective team dynamic. 


Respect is also essential for collaboration. It means acknowledging and valuing each team member's contributions, ideas, and perspectives. It means treating everyone with dignity and fairness, regardless of their role or position in the team. When team members feel respected, engaged and motivated, they are more likely to foster better collaboration and achieve improved outcomes.


Furthermore, a crucial aspect of successful collaboration is having a willingness to learn and adapt. Flexibility and the ability to adjust to changing circumstances are essential in collaborative efforts. Team members should remain open to acquiring new skills and approaches while being ready to adapt their behaviors and strategies to meet the team's needs. 


By embracing a mindset that promotes learning and adaptation, team members can effectively overcome obstacles and challenges, resulting in enhanced collaboration outcomes.


As I recap, remember that developing the right mindset for collaboration encompasses several key principles, such as trust, openness, respect, and a willingness to learn and adapt. By embracing these principles, team members can forge stronger and more effective collaborations, leading to better outcomes and overall success. 


Collaboration may not always be effortless, but with the appropriate mindset, it can become a rewarding and fulfilling experience for everyone involved.


If you have reached this point in the article and find yourself within the academic system or aspiring to be part of it, what is preventing you from initiating and sustaining strong research collaboration?


An effective collaboration always yields greater rewards for your efforts. Let us collaborate and revolutionize the paradigm of African research.

CONUA DECRIES FG'S BETRAYAL OF MEMBERS OVER 8MONTHS OWED SALARIES; THREATENS TO SUE!

CONUA DECRIES FG'S BETRAYAL OF MEMBERS OVER 8MONTHS OWED SALARIES; THREATENS TO SUE!







 

The newly registered Congress of University Academics (CONUA) has declared war on the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige and the Federal government over owing it's members 8 months salaries despite their loyalty to the FG as against the indefinite general strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).


Recall that CONUA got registered after declaring against the ASUU strike in a glamorous event anchored by Chris Ngige, the Labour Minister. Many had expected that lecturers loyal to CONUA would be smiling home now while majority loyal to ASUU would be the ones affected by the FG's " No Work, No Pay!" policy.


But according to executives of CONUA in a statement on Tuesday, signed by its National President, Secretary and Publicity Secretary, Dr Niyi Sunmonu, Dr Henry Oripeloye and Dr Ernest Nwoke, respectively, said it was wrong for the FG to lump CONUA with members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities who went on eight months strike between February and October, 2022.


The statement partly read, “CONUA formally made its non-involvement in the strike known to the Federal Government in a letter addressed to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, in April 2022.


“In the letter, we made it clear that because CONUA constituted a separate and independent union in the university system, our members did not call for any strike. This was followed by a Press Conference in Abuja on August 19, 2022 at which it was categorically stated that CONUA was not part of any ongoing strike, and that the “No Work No Pay” principle ought not to apply to members of the union.


“CONUA’s expectation is that, due to the express and categorical declaration, the government would seamlessly release our members’ outstanding salaries when it resumed the payment of salaries to all university staff in October 2022. But to our dismay, CONUA members were also paid pro-rata salaries in complete disregard to the fact that we were indeed shut out of duties by the strike.


“Subsequently, we wrote to the Accountant-General of the Federatฤฑon and the Ministry of Labour and Employment reminding them that it was an error to lump our members with those that declared and embarked on strike action. It was yet another shock for the outstanding backlog of salaries not to have been paid to our members along with the November 2022 salary.”


CONUA said the non-payment of “our withheld salaries” contravenes Section 43 (1b) of the Trade Disputes Act CAP. T8, which stated that “where any employer locks out his workers, the workers shall be entitled to wages and any other applicable remunerations for the period of the lock-out and the period of the lock-out shall not prejudicially affect any rights of the workers being rights dependent on the continuity of period of employment This provision is consistent with global best practices."


Summonu then noted that CONUA will have to take the Federal government to court over the non-payment of workers.


“From the foregoing and as a law-abiding union that pledged to do things differently, we have resolved to seek legal redress of the illegal withholding of our legitimate salaries by taking the matter to court in consonance with the rights enshrined in our laws,” the union said.


In October, the FG registered CONUA, who had opted to be different from ASUU by bringing new methods as against strike to press home the demands of lecturers for better welfare and university funding.

Adedoyin, his son, others kill Timothy in Hotel room (Video)

Adedoyin, his son, others kill Timothy in Hotel room (Video)



According to Oriyomi Hamzat in the above video, the Nigerian police confirmed after retrieving of the deleted CCTV footage of the hotel where Timothy Adegoke was killed .


The police have established through the footage that Prince Ramon Adedoyin who is the chairman and owner of the Hilton Hotel in Ile Ife, Osun State, his Son and one other, both currently at large physically involved and masterminded the killing of the MBA Student Timothy Adegoke.


Our other sources also confirmed that some traditional rulers in Yorubaland who may later be implicated by this eventuality are working round the clock to ensure that the case die down. A traditional ruler has reportedly reached out to the one of the elder brothers of Adegoke asking for settlement.

Timothy Adegoke’s Death: Abuja Court Denies Hotel Owner Bail, Adjourns Case till January 2022

Timothy Adegoke’s Death: Abuja Court Denies Hotel Owner Bail, Adjourns Case till January 2022

Adegoke

A Federal High Court in Abuja has on Thursday denied Dr. Rahmon Adedoyin, the detained proprietor of Hilton Hotels, Ile-Ife, Osun State; a bail leave but granted him access to medical facilities of his choice, pending the hearing of his fundamental human rights enforcement suit.


Mr. Timothy Adegoke who was an MBA student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, allegedly strangled to death and shallowly buried within Adedoyin’s hotel.

In the court on Thursday when the matter came up for hearing, Adedoyin, who is also the founder of the Oduduwa University, Ile-Ife, through his counsel, Kunle Adegoke, SAN, informed the court that its order made on December 6, 2021 for the IG to appear in court, was duly served on the police boss as directed.


Adegoke said that on December 8, he personally visited the Police Headquarters in the FCT and reminded the authorities that the case would be coming up on Thursday. He however, expressed surprise that the IG was not in court and was not represented by any legal practitioner and prayed the court to take the ex parte motion already filed, as the IG had been put on notice as directed.


Adedoyin in the ex parte motion filed along with the fundamental human rights enforcement suit, prayed that the accused be admitted to bail pending the conclusion of investigation by the police or the determination of his fundamental human rights enforcement suit.


While delivering his ruling, Justice Inyang Ekwo after listening to the defense counsel denied a bail leave but granted the request to the effect that the police should allow the detainee to have access to medical facilities of his choice pending the hearing and determination of the fundamental human rights suit.

The judge thereafter adjourned the matter till January 21, 2021.

Meanwhile, the court had on Monday declined to grant any of the prayers contained in the ex parte motion and instead ordered Adedoyin to serve the motion and other processes on the police boss and consequently adjourned the matter till Thursday for hearing.

In a supporting affidavit, Chief Segun Aworinde, who described himself as Adedoyin’s younger brother, said despite being informed that the detainee was hypertensive and diabetic, the police had refused to release him or allow him access to quality health facility since he was arrested on November 15, 2021.

It should be recall that the autopsy report on late Adegoke, has been reportedly submitted to the police headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday, according to informed sources. Reliable sources disclosed that, “Adegoke died of severe trauma while his internal and external organs were intact. The internal organs like heart, kidney, livers and others could not be subjected to test because they are already in the advanced decomposition stage as at the time of carrying out the test; so they could not do that.”


The autopsy report was said to have established that both internal and external organs are complete, and they are in the normal position that they are ought to be.


Sources stressed that medical experts could not do a toxicology test on the body because the stomach had decomposed and was melting while they are carrying out the test.

“Severe trauma led to the death. I don’t know the type of trauma that he was subjected to before his death because the severe trauma that was arrived at, was an open-ended conclusion.

“Trauma could be as a result of hitting him with sticks or he falls, or sickness, or anything”, the sources revealed.

MR. GOVERNOR, YOUR BELOVED LAUTECH IS PRODUCING MORE DROPOUTS EVERY YEAR THAN GRADUATES - INDIGENT STUDENTS






As much as we all have tried to come to terms in agreement with the fact that education isn't free, at least not any longer, for reasons of maintenance and smooth running that should result to exploits, innovations and discoveries from the sector; we are yet to see these results manifest in the Nigerian educational sector; it has solely been a parasitic business venture that no longer has benefits for the consumers, rather than the fattening of cheeks and pockets of those who were assigned to meet the satisfaction of the consumers; education has been shortchanged.


This outcry is as ancient as tattoos as fashion but it is devastating that we've been left to continue crying and wallow as victims of education, yes, victims of education; the educational system in Nigeria has become a predator over the lives of those it should empower.


Every year in LADOKE AKINTOLA UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, we bury victims of education who didn't die naturally by the inability to catch up academically, but because some coronavirus-like policies were introduced without prior or due notification, forcing students who never signed to these policies to abide by the policies, rendering the purpose of what would have been a good policy, ulterior.


Needless to recount past incidence, the recent repetition of the effects of this policy suffice as evidence in any court of law; the institution kicked off the second semester examination of the 2021/2022 academic session on Monday, November 29, 2021 and a good percentage of students who are the supposed purpose of the institution have been denied the access to write this examination; LAUTECH is producing more dropouts every year than graduates.


What is this policy? NO TUITION, NO EXAM POLICY. A very good policy that every sane person should understand that it is for the purpose of maintenance and the smooth running of the institution, considering the blows that the institution has faced in past times from strikes and tussle of ownership between two States.


The policy was initiated at a time when the institution was being self funded to meet the payments and arrears of staff members of the institution; and students who were never the cause of these arrears or irresponsibility of the visiting governments then, became the only victims of this anomaly by being forced to adjust; in fact an unreasonable geometric increase in the tuition was proposed as at the time, to leave the students' representatives no choice than to bargain the price rather than fighting a policy they were never prepared for; the tuition was still geometrically increased, at least that was the middle ground between the management and the students then, and the policy stood.


Ever since, it has been series of students dropping out of the institution; it has been a journey of marring the careers that the institution was supposed to make; it has been the production of hooligans, fraudster and victims of disappointments and a failed government, or what do we expect of students whose fees were suddenly increased alongside a policy that ensures they pay up the fees or they won't be eligible to write the examinations that will certify them?


The school has witnessed a financial turn around in recent times at the advent of a new visitor that has not only been responsible and responding to demands, but made sure that the fundamental troubles faced with the institution was resolved, and that was the sole ownership of the institution by a State(Oyo State).


This Governor has been paying FULL SUBVENTION to LAUTECH; arrears that are not even owed by the present visitor has been taken care of, obviously there had been a smooth running, funds are being generated and there is no need for unnecessary pressure on the students who should be the purpose of the institution, and not victims.


Ironically, it is students who are not appointees of the Governor that understands his good intentions for the Institution; or what else could be the intention of someone who removed #3,000 levy for Primary Schools in the State, and reduced our own tuition here by 25%? We see such gesture, and we appreciate it as a notable value for education and the greatest caution against having dropouts from schools.


These students are still the ones overworked, running TWO SESSIONS IN A YEAR; putting parents on the run to rally for TUITION OF TWO YEARS IN A YEAR; and they will term it our own share and advantage as it implies graduating on time, but the truth is, it only implies a rapid in flow of cash for the greedy purses and unproductivity from being worn out.


It is only unfortunate that the good intentions of the State Government are being sabotaged by the appointees who are supposed to implement credits to the good intentions; rather appointees such as the COMMISSIONER FOR EDUCATION in the State, Barr Rahman Abdul-raheem has connived with the Management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology  starting from the Institution's ACTING VICE CHANCELLOR, Professor Mojeed Olaide Liasu, and his subordinates, the DEAN OF STUDENTS AFFAIRS, Professor Azeem Ige, who has actively been playing the role of silencing the students who are the very platform that influenced the newness in the State, the advent of clear waters.


It has been a tussle of who eats more from the spoils of the students as the fattening of the pockets of some of the Management Staff and purchase of VEHICLES is the reason why members of the ACADEMIC STAFF UNION OF UNIVERSITIES (ASUU), LAUTECH CHAPTER are also hell bent on having their shares by threatening with STRIKE ACTIONS.


These appointees have been deliberately sabotaging their principal's effort, because even as we speak, an IMMEDIATE IMPLEMENTATION OF A 25% REDUCTION has still not effected, why else if not because the school management has not made enough for their pockets.


We hereby call on the Executive State Governor of the Oyo State to rise to action to defend his love and good intentions for Education and do the needful to the pests and greedy personnels sabotaging his efforts.


The students of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology will not stand down and watch the Institution we should be proud of in years to come, to be clamped down and feasted on by selfish interests; we won't fold arms and watch our colleagues drop out and become elements of destruction in our society; we want to graduate and rise together.


We hereby declare that there would be a peaceful protest at the Oyo State Secretariat to state our grievances, and make our plights known in solidarity of our fellow students, and for a call to action of a Governor whom we know has our good at heart.
