OAU Education Students Lament Over The Crappy State Of NUESA SignPost Project

By John Beloved
Reacting to the signpost that has recently been installed  at the entrance of the faculty of education,several students have expressed themselves concerning  recent developments in the  faculty.

While some students appreciate  the effort of the  faculty president  for the signpost creation, others were not completely impressed with it complaining  on what they feel to be profane about the signpost .

As some  students have opined, a rationale for the uprising is the awful standard of a project budgeted with a sum of #160,000 .
 Arbitrarily, from the  fund allocated to the project, it was highly anticipated by the students

Although a Committee of 7 was   set up by the president to carry out the project
but the beautiful initiated project could not be called a beautiful done job to the later.

They claimed that materials used in making the project were of low and inferior quality and this was never expected as the project had enough money allocated to it.

Legendary Snakes: Nigerians, The Looters Of Their Own

By John Beloved

The astronomical level of corruption and greed in Nigeria has been proven since ancient times.

In recent times, it has been  shown that our long anticipated end to corruption is still a decade ahead of Nigeria.

Even as many Nigerians verbiage affirmatively to themselves as not part of Nigeria corruption, they still dine on a table with corruption depicting this from the occurrences recently dated in the educational sector. It is true when the Nigerian government is called to be corrupt but just to tag corruption with the Nigerian identity as a whole is a big dose.

Having laughed and mocked the beautiful and fascinating animal kingdom story of  a legend Nigeria snake that has stolen from humanity, Philomena  chieshe displayed her high intellectual level as the office clerk of the Joint Admission and matriculation board[JAMB] in makurdi with her story.

Having wondered how ridiculous it was for her to have thought of a folktale as a possibly acceptable pass for the missi…

Fashion For The Season

By Hassan Pelumi

Good day everyone!
It is no news that the Sun has decided to be harsh ouch, ouch... it's so scorching you feel! So,  considering that heat plus examination is a very bad combination - surviving in this weather would be hard unless you wear the appropriate outfit. So, by popular demand and the fierce unmercifully pinching sun, this is the ways I have posited to dress in this weather.

  Please, for the love of comfort, stick to light colours. You should keep your black clothes far away from you this weather. Black clothes absorb heat, it would cause the weather to be more unbearable than it already used to do. Remember my job is to make you survive in this weather, as your school mama alright?

  These materials are very breathable, that even in hot weather, one doesn't sweat in them. So... in this weather, clothes made from cotton should be in your wardrobe.
