3 Days To The Start Of 2016 ‘Black Friday’ Sales, Here Is What You Need To Know

Image
Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since the early 2000s, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales.

Black Friday is not an official holiday, but California and some other states observe “The Day after Thanksgiving” as a holiday for state government employees, sometimes in lieu of another federal holiday such as Columbus Day.

In Nigeria, this day has also been adopted by several online stores to sell promotional goods. For 2016, some of the leading online stores have announced their Black Friday sales programme; Konga will have its special sales between Friday, 18th November and Monday, November 21. Another leading store, Jumia will its own special sales between Monday, November 14 and Friday, November 25.

As at today (03/11/2016), one of the leading online store…

OAU 2016 Convocation: Who Are Those Elujoba Will Be Convoking?

Image
I waited for so long to know who Tunde’s sister, aunty Oyinkansola will be getting married to. My absence from home most times because of school works made me miss meeting with Uncle Felix whenever he comes visiting.

He isn’t based in Nigeria, but from what Tunde told me the last time we saw each other, he [Felix] has been in the country since last week, and he finally left for Madrid, Spain only three days before I returned from school. I missed another chance of meeting him again!

Just like the Yoruba people put it, I believed ‘egberun Saamu o le sa mo Olorun lowo,’ I was so sure I was going to meet Uncle Felix soon since the Introduction ceremony was just three weeks away.

Unknowingly to my poor self, Tunde’s family had something ‘weird’ in stock. On that fateful morning, having left campus a day before, stabbing my Botany laboratory class, I realized this runaway Uncle Felix won’t be coming for his own Introduction ceremony. Now, you can relate to why I said ‘weird’. He was rep…

"We Are Not A Transition Committee..." - OAU Students' Union Electoral Commission Speaks

Image
During a Press Conference organised by the   recently elected leadership of the Obafemi Awolowo University Students' Union Electoral Commission on Sunday, 6th November 2016, the Electoral commission has openly cleared the air on certain misconceptions that may be surrounding the purpose of its establishment.

The Public Relations Officer of the Commission, Mr Durodola Lukmon, stated whilst briefing the gentlemen of the press that the primary objective of the commission is to organise the elections that would usher in a new set of leaders for the Union. He however further corroborated, quoting appropriate parts of the Students' Union Constitution, that till a new leadership was brought on board, the commission through its Chief Electoral Officer, which is the Chairman of the Commission, would act as an ad-hoc leadership structure. The PRO however stated emphatically that the committee was not a transition committee as its primary purpose was the organisation of the Union elect…

"Youth Are Not The Leaders Of Tomorrow" - Professor Pat Utomi

Image
During the 9th Faculty week of the prestigious Faculty of Agriculture, Obafemi Awolowo University, the chairperson of the day when giving his address stated that people should stop rating him so high, but should simply call him Pat Utomi - the teacher because he's always been a teacher.

He stated further that what the Nigeria government has always embarked on is "progressive degeneration", which is the cause of continuous reduction in value of the nation.

He said these in his speech titled "The Paradox of Progressive Degeneration" - a topic which he dissected to the pleasure and reasoning of students and Academicians at the Oduduwa Hall. Prof. Pat Utomi made it clear that the cause of Nigeria's present economic problems was, in his words; "Nigerians had been unlearning to degenerate."

He later flourished the hall by telling the students present that "You are not the Leaders of tomorrow but the leaders of now", in his conclusive words he…
