Shettima to students: Pass mock exam, get WEAC/NECO paid

Shettima to students: Pass mock exam, get WEAC/NECO paid

Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima yesterday told Senior Secondary School (SSIII) students in Borno State to pass mock entrance examination particularly in Mathematics and English language and get their bills paid for the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO) 2016.

He told the final year examination class students that those who could not make it would have to wait until next year.
Governor Shettima, who spoke through the state Commissioner for Education Malam Musa Inuwa Kubo, said Borno state government under him had been paying the fees of WAEC/NECO for students every year, but with closure of the schools for the past two years, some of the students who had overstayed at home without reading, might not be fit to write the 2016 WAEC/NECO, stressing that insinuations going round that government would not pay the bills for this year was false.

He said there was the need for the students of SSIII to undergo test, so that those who passed the Mock Exams would be paid their WAEC/NECO, saying, government would not be happy to expend millions of naira in fees without proportionate number of students performing credibly.

Today's bible teaching: Stand in the company of the elders,stay close to whoever is wise

Sirach Chapter 6 Vs 5-37


5Pleasant speech multiplies friends,

and gracious lips, friendly greetings.

6Let those who are friendly to you be many,

but one in a thousand your confidant.

7When you gain friends, gain them through testing,b

and do not be quick to trust them.

8For there are friends when it suits them,

but they will not be around in time of trouble.

9Another is a friend who turns into an enemy,

and tells of the quarrel to your disgrace.

10Others are friends, table companions,

but they cannot be found in time of affliction.

11When things go well, they are your other self,

and lord it over your servants.

12If disaster comes upon you, they turn against you

and hide themselves.

13Stay away from your enemies,

and be on guard with your friends.

14Faithful friends are a sturdy shelter;

whoever finds one finds a treasure.

15Faithful friends are beyond price,

no amount can balance their worth.

16Faithful friends are life-saving medicine;

those who fear God will find them.

17Those who fear the Lord enjoy stable friendship,

for as they are, so will their neighbors be.


18My child, from your youth choose discipline;

and when you have gray hair you will find wisdom.

19As though plowing and sowing, draw close to her;

then wait for her bountiful crops.

For in cultivating her you will work but little,

and soon you will eat her fruit.

20She is rough ground to the fool!

The stupid cannot abide her.

21She will be like a burdensome stone to them,

and they will not delay in casting her aside.

22For discipline* is like her name,

she is not accessible to many.

23Listen, my child, and take my advice;

do not refuse my counsel.

24Put your feet into her fetters,

and your neck under her yoke.

25Bend your shoulders and carry her

and do not be irked at her bonds.

26With all your soul draw close to her;

and with all your strength keep her ways.

27Inquire and search, seek and find;

when you get hold of her, do not let her go.

28Thus at last you will find rest in her,

and she will become your joy.

29Her fetters will be a place of strength;

her snare, a robe of spun gold.

30Her yoke will be a gold ornament;c

her bonds, a purple cord.

31You will wear her as a robe of glory,

and bear her as a splendid crown.

32If you wish, my son, you can be wise;

if you apply yourself, you can be shrewd.

33If you are willing to listen, you can learn;

if you pay attention, you can be instructed.

34Stand in the company of the elders;

stay close to whoever is wise.

35Be eager to hear every discourse;

let no insightful saying escape you.d

36If you see the intelligent, seek them out;

let your feet wear away their doorsteps!

37Reflect on the law of the Most High,

and let his commandments be your constant study.

Then he will enlighten your mind,

and make you wise as you desire.

​Kano State House of Assembly approves 15 years for rapists, life imprisonment for kidnappers

The Kano State House of Assembly has passed into law, a bill seeking for life imprisonment for kidnappers and 15 years sentence for rapists in the state.Hon. Yussuf Attah, the Majority Leader of the Assembly, who read the Kidnapping, Abduction and Forced Labour Amendment Bill 2016 before the Assembly today Monday, October 31, said the committee of the whole Assembly passed the bill after considering the amendment."The law has been in existence since 1963, but did not provide serious punishment for kidnappers, therefore, we have to amend it to suit the current situation," said Attah. According to the lawmaker representing Fagge Constituency, any person found guilty of kidnapping would face life imprisonment without an option of fine while anyone found guilty of rape or forced labour will be sentenced to15 years without an option of fine.

Speaking with newsmen after the passage of the bill, the Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Salisu Riruwe, hailed the amendment as a welcome development."With the passage of this anti-kidnapping law, we are hoping that the rampantcasesof kidnapping and abduction in some areas of the state will come to an end," Mr. Riruwe said.


Special Address by Chief Host and Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila at the 2016 Grassroot Empowerment Programme at Abati Barracks, Surulere, Lagos on Monday, October 31st, 2016

Special Address by Chief Host and Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila at the 2016 Grassroot Empowerment Programme at Abati Barracks, Surulere, Lagos on Monday, October 31st, 2016


I welcome you all to this auspicious occasion of the 2016 Grassroot Empowerment programme. This is a periodic programme aimed at addressing needs of the people I

represent in the House of Representatives. I am first your representative before my election as the Leader of the House so your interest comes first before any other national assignment for "I am in the National Assembly by your mandate". I have taken this step given the state of the economy of our country and I know many of us only need little support to survive this temporary economic recession.

As the Leader of Government Business in the House I have good understanding of our economic situation. As much as many people in the Opposition do not want us talk about the mismanagement of the past, there is a past before the present, so reference must be made to this. Our country's economy was destroyed due to failure of leadership. Nigerians need to know depth of the rot we inherited to appreciate what the APC government is doing to recover stolen funds and put the country on a path of recovery. Even though the identified stolen funds and assets cannot be spent by government until all court cases are dispensed the APC is continuing to work hard to stimulate the economy.

The House of Representatives is working with the Executive to ensure that these saboteurs do not hijack the anti-corruption drive of President Muhammadu Buhari. We know Nigerians laboured hard to put this government in place and will not settle for excuses so the House will look into possible means of funding the projects in the 2016 budget such as the virement and borrowing plan of government before the National Assembly. Borrowing to finance infrastructural projects is not an irresponsible act, Lagos State did same and the concomitant development is obvious. The House of Representatives will respond to Mr. President's requests in the interest of Nigerians and quickly set the process in motion for its committees to carry out appropriate oversight functions on all project executing agencies until the 2016 budget is fully implemented according to law. Our interest in attracting federal presence to our constituencies is same as Mr President's resolve to keep his campaign promises so Nigerians can be assured that both arms of government will work harmoniously to bring the country out of economic recession soon.

The Empowerment programme of today is remarkable because I can see many people of Surulere overcoming the economic recession through these support equipments with proper planning. To those who are not privileged to be part of this set of beneficiaries be rest assured that your turn will come. My support programmes have been in different forms, earlier this year we supported our sporting youths through Femi Gbajabiamila Football Tournament held at the Teslim Balogun this year with NFF President and Nigeria Football Supporters Club Leadership in attendance.

We did not only rewarded football talents but also showcased Surulere as a sporting city center. We also got SMEDAN, a federal government agency to provide entrepreneurial training for 350 youths in Surulere, and also supported entrepreneurs such as promoters of Amala 360, Bank Olemoh Rice Spot etc. Our Solar Boreholes and Street Lights are all over Surulere 1 federal constituency and we intend to do more. Because we have no APC representation in our sister constituency (Surulere 2), I have continued to extend my programmes to them.

Let me also congratulate those who defected to our party. APC is a party of progressives, home to those who are willing to uphold democratic ideals. We have not attained perfection but we are getting there. Its my prayer that your defection will spur good tidings for our political family in Surulere. E ka bo si ile. As a form of goodwill and encouragement we have extended this empowerment to some of you.

Let me again charge beneficiaries of today's grassroot empowerment ceremony to use these equipments to make meaningful impact in the lives of your family and the society. We have empowered you so that economic activities in Surulere will increase. Don't sell them off, when you do that, it's yourself not APC or President Buhari that is sabotaging the economy. It's my prayer that these equipments will bring prosperity to your homes.

My commitment to robust representation in line with the mandate you have given to me is unshakeable and I crave for your continuous support to our government and party.

Thank You !

Kukah Commends #EFCC Facilities

Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Father Matthew Hassan Kukah has commended the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, over the state of its facilities in Abuja, which he described as 'clean and orderly". He made the remark Monday October 31, 2016 during an unscheduled visit to the Commission's detention facility and clinic, where he felicitated with some of the inmates which included former ministers, Femi Fani-Kayode, Musiliu Obanikoro and a former Presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati.

The revered priest, who was conducted round the facilities by the acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu, expressed delight that the detainees appeared in high spirits despite the discomfort of temporary restriction. He urged them not to be downcast and to see their current travail as divine. Also speaking, Magu assured the inmates that their incarceration was not personal. "It is not personal. This is all about Nigeria and making it better. And I think there is a consensus around this," he said

Kukah who prayed for the inmates before his departure, summed up his visit thus: "I discussed with some detained suspects like Femi Fani-Kayode, Musiliu Obanikoro and Reuben Abati; and I am quite pleased they are looking cheerful. I was also happy with the humility of the acting Chairman who took me round and the way he interacted with the detainees. This is what is important for our country so that nobody takes these kinds of things personal. I am happy I came.

"We are all staff of EFCC to the extent that we want a better country and we are doing what needs to be done. We'll continue praying that God guides you, keeps you safe and ensure that we build a country that we all will be proud of. This country has suffered so much, but we hope and pray that we can bring the suffering and trauma to an end as we collectively fight corruption."

Today on #BillTracker : A Bill for an Act to make provisions for the prohibition of sexual harassment of students by educators.

Today on #BillTracker : A Bill for an Act to make provisions for the prohibition of sexual harassment of students by educators.

Sexual Harassment in Tertiary Institution Bill,2016 (SB. 262)  by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, Delta Central and 57 other Senators.

Second Reading:24th May 2016
Third Reading: 27th October 2016
Current Status: Awaiting Concurrence and Assent

Sexual Harassment Bill seeks to achieve the following:

-To correct the observed culture of sex for marks or other favours in tertiary institutions and replace suasion with a tough law  & raise the bar of ethical conduct & discipline in lear‎ning institutions.

-Persons found guilty of sexual harassment shall be sentenced to 2- 5yrs imprisonment no fine options.

-Students will be allowed to  submit sexual harassment complaints to administrative head of the institution in question.

-It will make it easier for offenders to be prosecuted by penalizing impropriety of the act with or without consent, by making consent immaterial once the act is established.

- When enacted into law the provisions would make such an act a statutory rape or a strict liability offence and offer better protection to students.

- Sexual Harassment Bill  spells the criminal liability of an administrative head who fails to address sexual harassment complaints.

- The bill further makes provisions for the protections of students from victimization under any guise and prescribes expulsion for students who falsely accuse educators of sexual harassment.

- It  will not only cure the troubling mischief of sexual harassment of students in tertiary institutions but provide learning environments devoid of sexual harassment for our students, daughters and mothers.
