The students of the above named prestigious College of Health Technology having suffered for years without our demands not having the needed attention by the school management and the government has resolved to send our crises to the public before our destines are totally ruined.

It is so ridiculous and shameful to tell our parents and public that our over 40years institution only exist on paper by producing graduates without certificate as major courses are not yet accredited by recognized national bodies and products not being mobilized for the one year compulsory national youth service like all other Colleges of Health Technology which rendered our results useless and substandard to our colleagues.

We have exhausted all possible means to drive home our demands being the only college of health technology in the south west region facing this God forsaken challenges.

The entire students in our congress held on   Tuesday 8th October, 2019 hereby resolved that if the following demands are not met within 14 working days we shall not hesitate to do the unexpected.

Our demands are:
1. Accreditation of dental therapy department.
2. Accredidation and mobilization of Environmental health technology graduates for NYSC.
3. Mobilization of dental therapy graduates for NYSC
4. Accreditation of health technician two years program for validation of results.
5. Prompt payment of staff salaries.
6. Provision of Adequate facilities for the smooth running of all programmes.

These are the problems we are battling with and until they are addressed our going to school is of no use.

Aluta Continua, Victoria Ascerta...

Man defiles his 4 daughters in Lagos

A 64-year-old man, Bassey Archibong, of No. 10 Kunle Dipo Street, Majidun, Owutu, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, has been arraigned for having carnal knowledge of his four daughters aged between 12 and 20.
It was learnt that Archibong had been having incestuous sexual relationship with the girls since 2016.
Archibong was arraigned on three counts of continuous sexual relationship with his daughters, failure to get their consent and involvement in an amoral relationship with the victims before the Ikorodu Magistrates’ Court 1, Lagos.
The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The prosecutor, John Iberedem, said Archibong used food as bait to get the girls to consent to his amorous desire.
Iberedem said whenever the children objected, he would refer to Lot in the Bible, who had sex with his daughters and was not punished by God.
The prosecutor also stated that the offences were punishable under Section 265 (2) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2019.
He said, “The defendant beat the children and starved them whenever they confronted him on why he was sleeping with them.
“He would tell them that intercourse between fathers and daughters were normal and approved by God.
“He told the children that God did not punish Lot, who had sexual intercourse with his children, meaning that He approves of the act.”
The charges read in part, “That you, Bassey Archibong, between the years 2016 and 2019 at No. 10 Kunle Dipo Street, Majidun, Owutu, Ikorodu, Lagos State, in the Ikorodu Magisterial District, did engage your four daughters between the ages of 12 and 20 in sexual activities by having carnal knowledge of them continuously without their consent, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 265 (2) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.
“That you, Bassey Archibong, on the same date, time and place in the aforementioned magisterial district, did have unlawful carnal knowledge of your 20-year-old daughter without her consent even when you knew that it was morally wrong, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 260 (1) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.”
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs F. A. Azeez, remanded the accused person in a correctional facility pending advice by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
She adjourned the matter till October 30, 2019.

The greatest threat to justice are those who keep quiet against injustice.

Our attention have been drawn towards the incompetency of the commissioner for environment, Mr Funsho Esan who has failed the entire state in every capacity.

Mr governor sir,despite the wealthy educational attainment you have,ranking from day one to becoming a senior advocate of Nigeria(SAN),it is so sardonic and unethical to find people uncapable handling the affairs of important agency wish deals directly with the lives of human, such as the Ministry of Environment.

 The ministry who should be in charge of environmental hazards has failed us repeatedly.

The Flood which occurred due to poor drainage and blockage of drainage lanes occurred and have caused the loss of a final year student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko,wish her remains have not been seen till now. The flood took over the whole of Medoline and Cele area of Akungba, properties are also destroyed and also in her counterpart institution in Okitipupa, Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa (OSUSTECH), flood have taken over the road totally where hundreds of Students' and tens of hundreds users have to cross over with the use of canoes, making it an avenue for water borne diseases to spread like wild fire. Also in OSUSTECH Mini Campus, Idepe; Students in faculty of agriculture couldn't take their lessons and tests due to the over pour of the shouldering river bordering the annex at the back. If the situation isn't taken care of immediately, it could lead to further loss of lives and properties of the both the citizen and Ondo State Government (ODSG).

This and other areas of the state have been an eyesore to the image of the Sunshine State.

The Hon. Commissioner Mr Fusho Esan, has neglected his duties totally and has endangered the lives and properties of the people, after all,an innocent soul have been made to pay the ultimate price, it is high time people at the helms of affairs take responsibility for their negligence and incapability.

The commisioner for environment who is supposed  to concentrate his effort on how our drainages will be in good shape  and also how the environment will be clean always and healthy for the citizen , is only interested on how he can generate Igr through mineral resources in the state what a misplaced priority.

 On this note, NANS JCC ONDO ACISX CALL FOR THE SUSPENSION/INVESTIGATION  OF THE COMMISSIONER and steps be taken immediately to bring this horrible occurrences to an end.

We appeal to Mr Governor Arakunrin Akeredolu (SAN) to do the needful by Suspending and investigating the Commisioner for environment so as to sustain the peace we are enjoying in Ondo state and to serve justice to the departed soul.

The 2nd Annual Public Lecture and Yoruba Icon Awards of the Oodua Youth Coalition (OYC) was held today, October 4th, 2019, at the Heritage Continental Hotel, Akure. It had in attendance the Aagbaka of Alagbaka, His Eminence Afolabi Obasuyi Rt. Hon. Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly represented by Hon Kemisola Ajibola  Honourable Commissioner for Youth and Sports in Ondo State represented by State Director of Youth,  Chairman Ondo State Radiovision Corporation represented by Mrs Alewi  Director of Programmes    Hon. Dayo Awude, former Ondo Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Hon. Banke Sutton, Politician and former Head, Ondo Microcredit Agency.

The lecture was delivered by the Guest Speaker, the renowned author, historian, writer, journalist and columnist, Chief Dare Babarinsa.

The participants span across different divides amongst Yoruba youths. National Association of Ondo State Students, National Association of Nigerian Students, pupils from Aquinas College, Akure, youth groups, civil society organizations, young politicians and human and girl child right activists.

In his welcome address, the National President of OYC, Tayo Akintade Oluyi, highlighted this year's theme and did justice to the menace. Moral Decadence Amongst Oodua Youth; The Way Out. He pointed out the regionalization of crimes and social vices and regretted that Yoruba youth have been tagged internet fraudsters, drug abusers, ritualists, robbers and kidnappers. He was worried this could threaten the future of the land and concluded it's as a result of a failing society where both the youth and elders have thrown caution to the wind.

He could not believe the renaming of our beautiful language as vernaculars in public and private schools across Yoruba land is still ongoing. He wondered why the speaking of Yoruba remains banned in some schools in Yoruba land while countries in Europe and the Americas are teaching the language and have even officially declared it a national language. He concluded OYC will not wait till some unofficial rules from some mypoic leaders and governments totally destroy the heritage and culture of the land.

He pointed out his fear that a Yoruba girl no longer kneels for her father and her brother doesn't prostrate for the mother anymore and criticized giving our children foreign, meaningless names. He sealed his welcome address with the quote of Prof. Charles Soludo, who days ago charged the youth 'to challenge the status quo and stop complaining'.

In his lecture delivered, Chief Babarinsa decried the rising population in Nigeria and wondered why we won't use this as an asset and not a burden. He queried the continuous use of foreign materials by the youth and wondered when they'd get the needed and required skills to start manufacturing their own clothing materials, shoes, food and even medications.

He pointed out the unusual consideration of quick fix as the bedrock of the moral decadence in our societies. The urge to make quick money has pushed our youth to drug use, attempt to cross the Mediterranean to Europe, robberies in foreign lands and even trafficking of humans and drugs.

He queried the dearth and death of our age-long tenets of decency, hard work, dignity, integrity and all Omoluabi virtues. Why would parents not question the sudden wealth of their children! He cited the Ijesha people who were very proficient in electronic and automobile merchandising and wondered what happened to that business acumen of Yoruba youth.

The Guest Speaker then proffered solutions to the declining morals in the society and to cap it all, he urged the Yoruba nation to create a SouthWest Development Authority, a central body that will see to the infrastructural development of Yorubaland. He suggested the building of a good six or ten lane roads that will link all the state capitals in the Southwest including Ilorin and Lokoja. The body will be backed by law passed by each House of Assembly. It will also be in charge of rail line, airports and even electricity. He said the Federal Government has failed in its duties and cited the stalled rehabilitation of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway for almost 20 years now, a distance of only 100 kilometers.

Amongst his solutions, Chief Babarinsa wants schools that will build the competence of the youth be created where they will learn critical trade like plumbing, carpentry, automobile mechanics and other vocational skills.

He also wants good education for the teeming youth. Anyone willing and able to have education should not be denied. Teachers should be trained and retrained both at home and abroad and suggested that their promotions should be based on competence and capacity and not solely on number of years in service.

Language of Instructions was one of the solutions suggested by Chief Babarinsa. He called on the governments in Southwest to make Yoruba a compulsory  language of instruction for both primary and secondary schools. English should be treated as a subject that should be learnt in school. He cited Japan and India as the countries where they promote their native languages and are now super powers.

To reduce crime and moral decadence in the society, Chief Babarinsa wants youth employment be given utmost priority, warning that unemployment is the root of social vices today.

He also advised we change our mode and means of recruiting leaders in our electoral system, lamenting an expensive and conscienceless political system that throws up those who could go to any length to raise money to win elections. Any man who sold his mother to win elections can also sell the country when he gets to power.

In his conclusion, the guest speaker noted that the creates weapon to combat moral decadence is to embrace the philosophy of hard work and dignity of labour.

Earlier, other invited guests have aired their opinions on the theme. While some heaped the blame on the youth, some faulted the parents and the society for failing the youth.

Aagbaka of Alagbaka, His Eminence Afolabi Obasuyi blame the society for expecting too much from the youth while denying them many opportunities of life. He said he was already commanding a platoon in the military at the age of 21 in the UK. He also urged the youth to take the bull by the horns and demand for their inclusion in the decision making in Nigeria.

The National Publicity Secretary of OYC, Oluwagbenga Ajongbolo, gave the vote of thanks and wished everyone journey mercies back to their respective locations.

Open Letter to Omoyele Sowere By Fowobaje Oluwaseun (Pope Jero)

" Tough time don't last, tough people do "

  Robert H Schuller

Distinguish comrade sir, I wish I can see you and offer you a book titled tough time don't last, tough people do written by Robert H Schuller.

Sir, I read some of your activities in Unilag when you were the student Union president and how you were being victimized. You have being in this struggle long time ago maybe you have adopted this quote that says "Struggle continues until the equation of justice is balanced."

Your opinion about what leadership is all about is what is hunting you presently, you believed leadership should be about selfless service, you believed leadership should be about the people, the welfare of the people. unfortunately, this part of this world do not appreciate that philosophy. They believed in spending the nation's resources for their personal greed in order to forcefully keep the people under them.

Are you aware that the Senate is planning on spending 5.6bn on cars? I mean with the nation's treasury. That's why they are hunting you because you are going against that philosophy.

Are you aware how South Africans humiliated Nigerians because our country could not give the best to their citizens? the president of this nation never at any point in time address Nigerians as regard the subject matter. We now have a very bad reputation in the global world.

I discovered that the Federal government has taken your issue personal because they are trying to defend their failures and at the same time trying to govern Nigerians by force.

The level of Poverty in this country is getting very unbearable and this people called our leaders can not feel it, they are fucking rich, they don't know that a congo of rice is now #600. How do you expect me to survive when a congo of rice is #600 under the minimum wages of #18,000? that's the nation we find ourselves.

The level of unemployment that rock the nation has given the youth no other choice than to look for alternatives , crime activities would continue if the leaders of this nation do not find a lasting solution to this malady, no one wants to die of hunger.

You advised that one of the ways the government can flourish is by cutting down the expenses of the government and investing them into people lives but you see that these people are going contrary to that opinion, they are spending what they are not earning. That's why they are hunting you.

President Donald Trump, the president of the most powerful nation in world has always been insulted by both the citizens and non citizens of United States of America but I have never seen anyone one arraigned for insulting the president of the United State of America , I think the joy of democracy is to have right to an opinion but our president has taken it as an insult to say he is underperforming. Is he not? So pathetic!!!

Distinguished comrade Sir, you have displayed an undisputable courage. you see, Nigerian people are really hungry because of the abject poverty the leadership of this country has designed to humble Nigerians and instead of them to demand for good governance, we are struggling to get our stomach filled

Omoyele Sowere , tough time don't last, tough people do.

Be strong sir ...

APC Plotting To Use Federal Might In Kogi, Bayelsa Polls - PDP

Ahead of the November 16 governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday said it was worried over attempts by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to use federal might to gain undue advantage in the polls.

Speaking exclusively with Daily Independent, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, said all eyes would be on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to ensure a free, fair, and credible election that would be acceptable to all.

While urging INEC to be guided by democratic ethos in the discharge of her responsibilities, Ologbondiyan said the PDP was confident of winning the two states, given a free and fair exercise.

As a party, we are concerned about the use of federal might by the APC but we also believe that INEC, particularly the chairman of the commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has a responsibility to try to redeem what is left of his image and that of the commission by conducting an election that is free, fair, credible and generally acceptable to the people in Kogi and Bayelsa states.

“We believe he has that responsibility ahead of him. We are optimistic on our part that victory is certain if there is a free, fair and credible exercise,” the PDP said.

Earlier, in a statement, the party said that it had activated its grassroots structures in the two states ahead of the elections, while also adding that it was making efforts to reconcile aggrieved members following the primaries to select its candidates for the polls in both states.

Best Awards: FIFA reveals why Salah’s votes were voided, as controversy over Messi’s win rumbles on

FIFA has explained why some votes for Mohamed Salah to win The Best FIFA Men’s Player award were not counted.
Salah did not finish in the top three of the ballot, with his nominations from Egypt’s captain and coach not included.
Lionel Messi was named as the men’s winner, ahead of the likes of Salah, Liverpool team-mate Virgil van Dijk and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Liverpool star appeared to be upset, when FIFA’s full list of voting was released without his country’s selections.
FIFA, in a statement on Thursday, said: “During the monitoring of the votes submitted by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) on August 15, it was remarked that the signatures on the voting forms were in capital letters and thus seemed not valid (not authentic). The voting forms were also not signed by the general secretary which is mandatory.”
FIFA added the President’s Office of the EFA, which has undergone recent structural changes, was contacted about the issue, with no response received in time for the votes to count.
Further questions have been asked of FIFA about the voting process for The Best awards.
Nicaragua captain, Juan Barrera, claimed he did not vote although his name is listed on FIFA’s official document, which says he chose Lionel Messi, Sadio Mane and Cristiano Ronaldo as his top three.
“We have checked the voting documents submitted by the Nicaraguan FA and all documents are signed and confirmed with the official stamp of the Nicaraguan FA.
“Having compared with the vote sheets submitted by the federation and the ones we have published on FIFA.com… we confirm that we have the right votes signed by the player.
“We are asking the Nicaraguan Football Federations to inquire on this matter,” FIFA said.

Nigerian govt gives update of closure of borders

The closure of Nigeria’s borders by Federal Government was undertaken to strengthen the nation’s security and protect its economic interests, the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), retired Col. Hameed Ali, has said.
Speaking during a meeting with border stakeholders, comprising freight forwarders and security agencies on Thursday at Seme, Ali said that the closure was not intended to hurt anyone but to protect the nation’s interests.
“Our interest is to make sure that our country is secure, the well-being of our people is ensured and our economy is secure.
“The step we have taken is in the interest of Nigeria, the step is not to hurt anybody but to protect our own interests as a nation,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ali was accompanied at the meeting by Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic, Kayode Oguntuase, Comptroller General Immigration, Mohammed Babandede and Brig. Gen. E.A Ndagi, Coordinator of Joint Border Security Exercise, among others.
The NCS boss said that lots of things had gone wrong regarding compliance with transit of goods, adding that the border closure was to ensure that things were streamlined so that all stakeholders could be back to doing the right things.
“The idea is to ensure that the protocol that is involved in transit of goods and trade facilitation is adhered to so that we will all live and complement each other.
“The operation is undertaken to ensure that we get things back in perspective; we know the right thing, it is well written, we are all aware of it, we used to practise it, so we must go back to that”, he noted.
Ali said that the freight forwarders were critical stakeholders at the borders and urged them to ensure compliance with the rules regarding transit of goods.
“We cannot do business without you but compliance is lacking between you and our officers. Most of the things we do, we don’t comply with rules and that’s why we end up with weapons, Tramadol that killed our children.
“We end up with ammunition that bandits use to kill our people; we don’t manufacture ammunition in this country, if we do it is only from one source and that source is well protected and documented.
“But today, we have seen many of this ammunition in Nigeria, where are they coming from.
“They have compromised with some of us and some of you and I say to our officers; that weapons, that bullets you facilitate in transiting into Nigeria, you don’t know who will take it.
“The bandits, the armed robbers had no choice, your mother, my children, your sisters might be shot by that weapon,” the customs boss warned.
