Merry Christmas to you all.

In recent weeks, we have received numerous messages, phone calls and texts from many of those that have been admitted asking when they are likely to resume on Obafemi Awolowo University as students.

Henry asked; Please sir i am still curious to know what OAU management has in mind for we aspirants still waiting for second list?

Our response
If I tell you that there is no valid information, you may not be contented, not even in the midst of so many rumours travelling in the Social Media.

On resumption of fresh students, from information currently at my disposal, you are likely to resume September, 2016. Reason being that there is a thickened rumour that the OAU Management is planning the cancellation of an academic session (2015/2016).

Your fate if that pulls through?
You will be more delayed than necessary until September, 2016. Those that will be affected the most IF that arrangement pulls through are those that will be taking the 2016 UTME. Being affect…

Full Text Of President Muhammadu Buhari's 2016 Budget Address At The National Assembly

I am honoured and privileged to present the 2016 Budget proposal. This is my first address before this joint session of the National Assembly. I have come here today, not only to address members of the National Assembly, but also to speak directly to the men and women who placed us here.

2. I know the state of our economy is a source of concern for many. This has been further worsened by the unbridled corruption and security challenges we have faced in the last few years. From those who have lost their jobs, to those young people who have never had a job, to the people in the North East whose families and businesses were destroyed by insurgents, this has been a difficult period in our nation’s history, lessons that we must not forget or ignore, as we plan for the future.

3. By June 2014, oil prices averaged $112 per barrel. But as at today, the price is under $39 per barrel. This hug…

Mid-Semester Break: ASUU Demands Re-opening Of The University

Mid-Semester Break: ASUU Demands Re-opening Of Obafemi Awolowo University The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Obafemi Awolowo University has thrown her weight behind the interest of the Great Ife students by demanding the re-opening of the University early January, 2016.

As part of the resolution reached at the end of the ASUU Congress which held on Thursday, 17th December 2015 to consider University's administration's proposal of an annual leave for all academics among other things, the Congress resolved that the matter of an annual leave for academics is paramount but it should be at the end of the session. This is against the a 56-day leave proposed by the University authority which will begin after the Christmas break.

The academic staff said they only recognize the current university closure as a mid-semester break and nothing more, thereby demanding the reopening of the university for the continuation of 2014/2015 academic session by early January, 2016.

5 Important Things A Nigerian Undergraduate Must Work On Before Graduation

5 Important Things A Nigerian Undergraduate Must Work On Before GraduationThis article was sent in by an anonymous person but we feel it is worth sharing as undergraduates can pick one or two clues from it.

1. Spoken English
It is so sad that majority of Nigerian students in tertiary institutions do not bother about polishing their spoken and written English before graduation. Some graduates speak English worse than a toddler, making one to wonder what they spent 16 years doing in school. You hear utter statements like "he come and slap me and I come and beat him". If you say such to an interviewer, even with First Class honours clearly written on your CV, he will probably think you bribed your way through school. The use of words like 'yeah', 'goddamn', 'omo', 'sh*t', 'f**k' e.t.c should be stopped because they do not portray you as a decent person.

2. Mode of dressing
Looking fly on campus was one of the things I enjoyed during my unde…
