The extended deadline for the Student Registration for the Harmattan semester of the 2014/2015 session ends today.

It will be recalled that the Vice-Chancellor has graciously extended the commencement of the late Registration by one week earlier last week. Consequently, late Registration will now be activated on Saturday, July 26, 2014.

However, it will be recalled that the Students' Union leadership chided the School Management over the extension of deadline and says the extension cannot stand. They argued that Student Registration cannot end while school is not on session. The Union leaders however implore the School Management to open the school for academic activities to resume.

Image

This telephone conversation came a day after Jonathan’s camp and Buhari had exchanged hot words over the impeachment proceedings against some opposition governors. In the couple of bombings in Kaduna on Wednesday which claimed scores of lives, Buhari escaped death when his convoy was caught in a blast at Kawo area of the city while he was on the way to his hometown, Daura, in Katsina State.

Posting Of National Youth Service Corps(NYSC) Members Should Be Limited To Their Geo-Political Zones

Image
By Jegede Oluwatola


The National Youth Service Corps programme established in the year 1973 under the 1973 decree states that ''every Nigerian below the age of 30 years that has completed his first degree programme is liable to be called upon to serve in the service corps''. It was formulated during the administration of General Yakubu Gowon. The scheme was intended to foster national unity after the civil war that polarized the country. It was also aimed at destroying the fears that existed among people of Nigeria then who feared to go, live or work in other parts of the country other than theirs.


Truth be told, the sole purpose of the NYSC scheme has been bastardized over the years as some geopolitical zones have been too hostile, insensitive and lack security to ensure the safety and guarantee the protection of lives of the Corps members serving in other zones. We have heard of the intolerant nature of some geopolitical zones against the corps member…
