We Are Vindicated -Senator Omisore

We are amused by the attempt of Osun State office of the Independent
National Electoral Commission (INEC) to muddle facts and play sophistry over incontrovertible indictment of two of its key staff for their involvement in the rigging of the August 9 governorship election. We are watching to see if the national headquarters of INEC will also consent to this plot to cover up the involvement of it staff using a nebulous administrative lapses.

We would not have bothered to join issue with the state office of INEC but the need to set records straight supersedes all other considerations. We therefore challenged INEC office in Osun state to provide answers to the following questions: What offence was committed to warrant suspension of the two electoral officers? In an electoral setting, what offence constitutes administrative lapses?

Nigerians cannot be deceived by attempt to play with language. INEC should call a spade a spade and not farm implement. The Electoral Officer of Obokun who ta…

Fees Hike Referendum: Students Defy Lectures To Participate

The Referendum earlier announced by the Students' Union went on smoothly yesterday across the designated Polling Centres on campus. The Referendum was part of the resolutions of the Students' Union Parliament in its last Sitting. It is expected to play a pivotal role in the determination of the next line of action on the fee hike.

Some Polling Centres monitored by our Correspondents including that of Faculty of Administration, College of Health Sciences, Faculty of Sciences among others witnessed a low turnout during our period there. Many of the students do not really find it important to participate.

Asteroid To Pass Close To Earth On Sunday, September 7

A newly discovered asteroid will pass “very close” to Earth on Sunday, NASA says.
The space rock is estimated to be 60 feet (18 meters) long. It’s expected to fly over New Zealand about 2:18 p.m. EDT (18:18 GMT).

It won’t hit Earth or any of the thousands of satellites orbiting the planet, NASA says. It will give astronomers and scientists a chance to study it.

The asteroid won’t be visible the naked eye, but amateur astronomers should be able to see it with telescopes.

Called 2014 RC, the asteroid was discovered on August 31 by the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona.

NASA’s Near Earth Object Program estimates there arethousands of asteroids that could threaten Earth, but experts say none of the ones being tracked are expected to hit the planet anytime soon.

Sometimes, though, space rocks sneak by the scientists and amateur astronomers who track them. On February 15, 2013, a nearly 60-foot-wide meteor plunged into Earth’s atmosphere and exploded over the Russian city of Chelyab…
