Change House Holds First Closed Student Conference In OAU

If the Nigerian literacy rate is truly 61%, how come over 70% of Nigerians still live below 1 US Dollar per day? Thought they say an educated man can never be poor.

If going to school will automatically save us from poverty like they say; then why is Shina Semmy Shoremekun, a 2:1 graduate of OAU an Okada rider in Lagos?

If truly a university degree is the main thing, then why did 8,460 graduates, 713 Masters Holders, and 6 PHD holders applied for truck driver jobs at Dangote Group of Companies in 2012?

If for you the whole end of schooling is money then why have you not dropped out of school like Steve Jobs or Bill Gate and go make your so called money, or follow your so called “passion”?

Where is the equilibrium between my academics, my life passions and goals?

If for you schooling is all about acquiring knowledge, then why do you want to graduate? Why not stay back your whole life so you could acquire more knowledge?

How come…

Linda Ikeji Explains What Happened As Google Restores Her Blog

Linda Explains What Transpired Between Her and Mr Aye Dee. The real shocking story

What you are about to read is quite long…and chilling! I wasn’t going to share this info in public but after I showed it to some family members and a few friends who came to the house this morning, everyone agreed that I need to share this, that you all need to read this. You see, what happened with my blog wasn’t about beef. It wasn’t because I showed off my new SUV. It wasn’t about plagiarism, or copyright infringement. It was something deeper, very personal and maybe even more dangerous. Some would call it obsession. Please continue...

To understand this I am going to start from the beginning but before that I want to talk about plagiarism. My understanding of plagiarism is when you take someone’s work and republish it verbatim as your own work. I don’t do that. But if I have ever done that in the past then I apologize. It was an oversight. I do get a lot of original content, way more than any other …
