The Ogun State chapter of ASUU has endorsed Atiku for President.
PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, promises restructuring if elected (Punch)
Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and stakeholders in the education sector in Ogun State, have resolved to work for, canvass and mobilize votes for the presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the February 16 general election.
The lecturers made the resolve after holding a meeting with the Deputy Chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (South) and former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel at the Political Academy in Sagamu.
Representatives of all the tertiary institutions in Ogun attended this meting.
The Academics who took turns to speak, lamented what they called "the lack of direction of both the present state and federal governments especially as it relates to education development".
The lecturers say the political class has pauperized the people, causing them to sway their votes with little inducements, resulting in the election of incompetent leaders.
They also lamented the state of education in Ogun and how institutions of higher learning are starved of funds with accumulated salaries and allowances going unpaid for months.
Lauding the restructuring agenda of Atiku juxtaposed with "his commitment to create jobs for the teeming masses", the lecturers say the candidate's policies will take Nigeria out of the woods and put the country back on track.
"Atiku's promise of restructuring the nation and provision of jobs for the unemployed are key to a nation's development and the academia is ready to lend their weight behind the PDP candidate in order not to have a repeat of the 2015 scenario. We are on the same page with Atiku and whatever we do, we do it well", one lecturer said.
Otunba Daniel thereafter assured the lecturers of Atiku's undying passion for restructuring. "It should be noted that Atiku has been talking incessantly about restructuring for the past years and already has the blueprint as encapsulated in his compendium of speeches".
Yes, I had sex with my patient but ‘no penetration’, confesses rapist Sokoto doctor
Tijjani Faruk, the Sokoto medical doctor accused of sedating and raping a married patient, has confessed to having sex with the patient before investigative panel set up by the ministry of Health to investigate the matter.
In an audio recording of the panel sitting exclusively obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN, the doctor was heard admitting to having sex with the patient but later said the sex was without penetration.
“To the best of my recollection, the only time she came to common room was that very Saturday, which she came with a small girl.
“I have something to say here. I want us to trash this issue. The truth of the matter we had sex with Zuwaira (not her real name). Yes, yes I am saying this,” Mr Faruk confessed.
But when the panel reminded him about the gravity of his confessions, he made U-turn, saying there was no penetration during the sex and it was not rape.
GRADUATE NURSES WERE DISGRACED TODAY OUT OF THE SCREENING HALL AT UNIVERSITY OF BENIN TEACHING FOR NOT HAVING RN AND RM
The graduate Nurses, most of who have their RN without RM have been thrown into sadness following the act of the Head of Department of Nursing, University of Benin Teaching Hospital.
The Head of Nursing Department of the Hospital, was vehement on candidates having RN and RM and this is a pointer to the fact that the innate discrimination against this set of Nurses have eaten rather deep into the senses of some Nurses.
"We don't want people who will come to fight management for not properly placing them" This was the take of one of the senior Nurses involved in the screening.
But if they don't employ these "foot soldiers" as they implied graduate Nurses are, who would fight the very many anomalies the profession is facing? Who would help keep our profession safe from intruders and maligners? Who would remain firm in the face of adversity wh…
