Federal Polytechnic, Ado embarks on indefinite strike over mass protest following the death of a student, health centre burnt.

The Federal Polytechnic of Ado Ekiti has embarked on an indefinite strike. This is due to the action of the students.
Following the death of a student of the institution, there was a mass protest in the school which later led to the school's health Centre being burnt by the angry students.
The Health Centre of the institution was set on fire by students of the institution on Saturday, 7th October 2017. The reason for the arson was the deaths of an HND 2 student of Estate Management and an ND 2 student of the Department of Architecture who both died in the State Hospital, Ifaki Ekiti after they were rejected by the Institution's Health centre because of their in ability to provide their Health centre cards.

The students were preparing to write their Second Semester examinations which was scheduled to start on Monday, 9th of October, 2017 but was shifted to 16th of October, 2017, and were furious about the incident due to levity with which the Doctors and Nurses handled the issue.



They claimed that the students who lost their lives were not given first aid treatment and the only thing the Health Centre did was give paracetamol to any kind of sickness. The HND 2 student who was said to be a Marshal Boss in the institution died as a result of ulcer.

It was also gathered that the issue of constant death had become a recurring issue for months as a result of negligence on the part of the Health Centre workers.
The school security officials that tried to calm the students were beaten to stupor by the students.



Students of the institution who are chanting "we no go gree" marched to the security unit to deal with them and to the school farm to pack and destroy fishes, chickens, eggs and other farm products.

SERAP sues Federal Government over Governors' double pay, life pensions and others.

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has sued the Federal Government over its “failure to stop former governors and now serving senators and ministers from receiving double pay and life pensions, and failure to seek recovery of over N40bn of public funds unduly received by these public officers.”
The suit number FHC/L/CS/1497/17 filed Friday at the Federal High Court Ikoyi, followed the organization’s request to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Mr. Abubakar Malami, SAN urging him to stop former governors from enjoying emoluments while drawing normal salaries and allowances in their positions as senators and ministers.



The suit brought pursuant to Order 34, Rules 1 and 3 of the Federal High Court Rules 2009 and the inherent jurisdiction of the court argues that, “Public function should be exercised in the public interest. Double emoluments promote private self-interest or self-dealing.”

“By signing double emoluments laws, which they knew or ought to know that they would be beneficiaries, these former governors have abused their entrusted positions, and thereby obtained an undue advantage, contrary to article 19 of the UN Convention against Corruption to which Nigeria is a state party.”



The suit is seeking the following reliefs:

AN ORDER granting leave to the Applicant to apply for Judicial Relief and to seek an order of Mandamus directing and or compelling the Respondent to urgently institute appropriate legal actions to challenge the legality of states’ laws permitting former governors, who are now senators and ministers to enjoy governors’ emoluments while drawing normal salaries and allowances in their new political offices; and to identify those involved and seek full recovery of public funds from the former governors.

AND for such order or other orders as this Honourable Court may deem fit to make in the circumstance.



The organization is also arguing that “Senators and ministers should not be receiving salaries and pensions running into billions of naira from states that are currently unwilling or unable to pay their workers’ salaries and pensioners’ entitlements. National and international laws implicitly forbid public officials entrusted with public resources from granting to themselves emoluments for life while serving in other public offices including as senators and ministers.”



The suit read in part: “Taking advantage of entrusted public offices and positions to enact laws to grant double emoluments and large severance benefits to serving public officials amounts to not only an abuse of office but also incorrect, dishonourable and improper performance of public functions, as per the provisions of paragraph 2 of article 8 of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.”

“By virtue of Sections 150 and 174 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) and Section 26 (2) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000, the Respondent as the Chief Law Officer of the country and the defender of public interest is constitutionally and statutorily empowered to institute and undertake criminal proceedings against any person in Nigeria in respect of any offence created by or under any Act of the National assembly in superior courts in Nigeria.”



“The Federal Government has a responsibility to stop former governors from receiving double pay at the expense of workers and pensioners. This position is buttressed by article 27 of the Vienna Convention on the Laws of Treaties, which provides that no state can justify the noncompliance with an international treaty with reference to internal law, including even the constitution.”

No date has been fixed for the hearing of the suit.

Teachers Day: Fayose splashes car gifts, millions on teachers

Mrs. Grace Opeyemi, (SUBEB primary School Omuo Ekiti) with the Governor Mr. Ayodele Fayose, during the celebration of World Teachers Day in Ado Ekiti on Thursday

THE Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, in Ekiti State, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to urgently charge the arrested Commissioner for Finance, Toyin Ojo, and Accountant General of the State, Mrs. Yemisi Owolabi, to court if indeed it has anything against them.

The state Chairman of NLC, Ade Adesanimi, said the anti-graft’s continued detention of the commissioners is delaying the payment of salaries to the hungry workers in the state.

He said this yesterday during the celebration of World Teachers Day, organised with fanfare for teachers in the state by Governor Ayodele Fayose. 

The event was held at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital. Recall that the EFCC on September 28, picked up the two commissioners while Governor Fayose was declaring his ambition for president in Abuja.

 The EFCC had said it arrested them after they failed to honour prior invitations extended to them on the need to explain an alleged misuse of the Paris Club loan refund. Represented by his Vice-Chairman, Gbenga Akosile, Adesanmi said: “If the EFCC has anything against them, they should charge the commissioners to court so they can come home and pay us our salaries. 

We are currently hungry and we want to collect the little that we are entitled to now. The actions and the inactions of politicians are having a toll on workers in Ekiti.” Speaker of Ekiti Assembly, Kola Oluwawole also condemned EFCC’s arrest of the commissioners, describing it as barbaric, dictatorial, inhuman and illegal. He called for their urgent release by EFCC. 

Speaking at the event, Fayose commended the teachers’ efforts in getting the state to come tops in NECO for two consecutive times. He announced automatic promotion to level 15 for all level 14 graduate primary school teachers  in the state and car gifts with a weeklong holiday in London or Dubai for all best teachers in the category of primary and secondary school and the tutor general of the state. Fayose said: “I thank you so much. 

You have done very well and deserve to be celebrated. Today, you have put my enemies to shame by making me proud. They said I am not educated but I have improved greatly on education in the state. Today, I have made Ekiti teachers proud without subjecting them to inhuman treatment that the last administration subjected them to.” 

You will not see those tormentors again. “It is only in continuity that you can continue to have car gifts for teachers in the state. Just like it is being sustained in Lagos, let us sustain the Fayose legacy in Ekiti and ensure this government continues.” For this year’s edition of the World Teachers’ Day, Fayose dished out a cash gift of N100 million which would be paid directly into the personal accounts of the teachers. He also promised to increase the cash gift to N150 million next year should the success be repeated. 

The brand new car gifts were presented to the best teachers from both primary and secondary schools as well as the best head master general. Other cash gifts and many other gifts were handed out to the teachers.

 Fayose granted the prayers of the teachers and announced the immediate and automatic promotion of all primary teachers on level 14 to level 15 for those who are graduates among them. This attracted great applause from the excited teachers who hailed him severally. 

Assuring for the umpteenth time that he would ensure outstanding salaries would be paid workers before his exit, Fayose, announced Toyin Arogundade as new state Tutor General, Petoa Group of Schools as best private in the state, best primary school teacher.

New viral disease known as "Monkey Pox" hit Bayelsa state

A new viral disease known as "Monkey Pox" has hit Bayelsa state. According to the state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Ebitimitula Etebu who spoke to newsmen today, the disease has been detected in a medical doctor and 10 other persons and that they have all been evacuated to an isolation center located at the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital (NDUTH) Okolobiri, Yenagoa local government area of the state.
Etebu described monkeypox as a viral disease caused by a group of viruses that include chicken pox and smallpox, adding that the first case was noticed in the Democratic Republic of Congo and subsequently had outbreaks in West Africa. He said that the virus as the name implies was first discovered in monkeys but can also be found in other bush animals such as rats, squirrels, and antelopes. He stressed that the strain of the virus found in West Africa does not cause death.



“Recently in Bayelsa State, we noticed a suspected outbreak of monkey pox. It has not been confirmed. We have sent samples to the World Health Organisation (WHO) reference laboratory in Dakar, Senegal. When that comes out we will be sure that it is confirmed. But from all indications, it points towards it.

The source is usually all animals. It was first seen in monkeys and that is why it is called monkey pox. But every bush animals like rats, squirrels, antelopes are involved. So, the secretions from particularly dead animals are highly contagious.” he said



The commissioner listed the symptoms of the viral disease as severe headache, fever and back pain amongst others, adding that most worrisome of all the signs were rashes bigger than those caused by chicken pox.
