Second Semesters And The "Àiyè Ò Fè" Reality- Pope Jay

Image
Many were the adventures of my first year in the University. As a young abecedarian, I tried as much as possible to become the master of my new environment: I did my best to learn everything; the way to talk and the way not to, the way to walk, the way to look and practically the way to do anything that would save me from the uniformed state in which I was; a state that was so identifiable it even had a taunting nomenclature that accompanied it. The worrisome part of this unavoidable malady of the mind and a factor which actually motivated my attempts to remedy it was that, contrary to popular belief, it could actually transcend one’s first year as a student. I mean, even at the time, I had come across several ignorami who hid under the “FYB” guise and tried to mask their benighted mind with the amount of years they had spent in the university campus.

I did not plan to remain a “bloody fresher” in my sophomore year and even though my efforts at adaptation were hindered by my tight sche…

NASELS OAU Hosts Editorial Head of The Nation Newspapers, Sam Omatseye

Image
On Thursday, 12th January 2017, the National Association of Students of English and Literary Studies of the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-ife, hosted veteran journalist, writer and public affairs analyst in her symposium. The symposium, which was held at AUD 2 in the University campus, featured a review of Omatseye’s book; “My name is Okoro” and a book reading from the author himself. The book was reviewed by public affairs analyst; Ademola Adesola who appreciated the author’s use of fiction in telling the Nigerian reality.
In the course of his reading, Mr Omatseye stated that the gruel Nigerian Civil war of the mid-nineties had not been won as successive governments had not made a rational decision to solve and settle it. He also encouraged students of the department to continue to be creative and diligent, keeping in mind the very motto of the Association; “Creativity In Development”. The Head of the Department of English, Professor Okuneye, cordially welcomed Mr Omatseye, stating th…

Breaking: MMM Resumes Operations, Gives Terms To Members

Image
Following a month of frozen mavro wait, the popular Ponzi scheme, MMM has resumed operations in Nigeria. Participants can now get help and provide help.

See the Release some minutes ago.

We are now open!!! 😊)
Dear members,

The holidays are over, and we''re now open. Just as promised. (You might have already noticed that we always stick to our promises. 😊) Actually, we promised to be open on January 14, but we''re open now, January 13, as you can see, which is a day earlier. (Well, I hope, the members of the System will forgive us for that. 😊)

It''s related to the hysteria raised by the authorities and the mass media around MMM. By joining forces, they''ve managed to nearly give the members of the System a heart attack and have frightened them out of their wits. Poor souls don''t know what to expect. Will we open again or not? 😊)

This is why we''ve decided, considering the situation, to reach out to the members, reassure and cheer the…

Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles,” & “The speed of your success is limited only by your dedication and what you're willing to sacrifice” ― Nathan W. Morris

Just like someone wrote, many walk pass opportunities without recognizing them, and that was how I ignored several invitations to become a pioneer member of MMM Nigeria and I called it scam and said it was a networking business. As of now, the government has continued to discourage people from partaking in the scheme because it is a bubble and a ponzi scheme, but the bitter truth is that, those who started early enough in the previous year, 2016 have their financial freedom testimonies to share. To break jaws, MMM went on break in December and has proved critics wrong by a promised gallant return this January.

From enquiries, the students claimed that the bank was shut down because it had allegedly facilitated the arrest of one of the students. However, as the time of compiling this report, efforts to reach the management of the bank had proven abortive.

But upon further interaction with the students, they claimed that the Postgraduate student's arrest was a breach of due protocol and threatened the safety of all students in campus.

Dear OAU Prospectives, Before You Apply For The 2017 UTME, Please Read This

Image
Season greetings! Congratulations to those who have been offered admission already and will resume next semester (2016/2017 academic session). For those who couldn't make it for one reason or the other, i'll say you shouldn't give up on your pursuit. Nothing should stop you this time.

We have found it very necessary to put this up owning to several ugly situations reported to us by applicants who applied to the Obafemi Awolowo University for admission last year; even when some applicants beat the cut-off marks for their proposed departments hands down, they were denied admission because of wrong subject combination.

[AD: Do you desire true financial freedom in 2017? We can help you to that path. Just click this post]

So, please read carefully the UTME subjects and O'level subjects required for admission into various department in OAU.

2017 University Thanksgiving & Prayers Holds January 12

Image
The University Annual Thanksgiving and Prayers for members of the University Community has been scheduled to hold on Thursday, 12th January, 2017, OAU Peeps News Agency has learnt. The programme is expected to hold at the Amphitheatre, Oduduwa Hall by 10:00am.

Previous editions of the thanksgiving service have witnessed the presence of the Spiritual leader of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E. A. Adeboye. However, with the current issue on leadership structure in the church, caused by the federal government's Financial Reporting Council Act implementation, the cleric's presence this time is highly doubtful.
