Come and see UNIPORT wonder
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), Prof. Ndowa Lale, has said that `the management of the institution has stamped out cultism from the university through its new policies. Lale spoke in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, during a briefing ahead of the university’s forthcoming 32nd convocation.
He said, “At the time I came on board, the level of cultism and examination misconduct was high…I remember then that the penalty for being a cultist or involvement in examination misconduct was suspension for one semester. Today, if it is established that you are a cult member, you are expelled from the university. Based on this, the issue of cultism and examination misconduct are no longer common and students have advised themselves to be well- behaved.” LOL. I refuse to comment. Before strong men come ask me whether I dey call their V.C. a liar.
Oshiomhole no come to play with anybody
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, said that unlike what happened in the 8th National Assembly, the party members in the 9th Assembly must chair all committees in the federal legislature.
He said: “This time round, we must ensure that we have a leadership of the National Assembly that shares the vision of the executive. Although we will adhere to the principle of separation of powers but there is only one government and unless the various arms pursue the same agenda, it is difficult for the executive to realise its vision…
“So, the PDP and other minority parties can have their say but working together the APC must have it’s way in legislative agenda, in the leadership of the National Assembly and the leadership of the committees in the National Assembly.” Wehdone Sir. We suppose change the name to APC Assembly sef.
Power tussle: NERC and ANED in rofo rofo fight
The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has said the obligation to ensure that all electricity consumers have meters remains with the electricity distribution companies under Meter Asset Provider Regulations 2018.
“This is consistent with their respective licensing terms and conditions and Section 4 (1) of the said regulations that provides that, inter alia, distribution licensee is responsible for the achievement of metering targets as specified by the commission from time to time,” NERC said in a statement on Monday.
The regulator was reacting to a statement by the Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED), the umbrella body for the Discos, that Discos were no longer responsible for the provision of meters to electricity consumers across the country. Make una leave talk. Wetin we want na light. Whether na Discos work or na INEC work, give us light!
Family values take on nude statues in Indonesia
A pair of bare-breasted mermaid statues have been given the family values treatment at an Indonesian amusement park where officials slipped golden tube tops over their chests. While the nude statues have been on display for years at Jakarta’s Ancol Dreamland, a recent policy aimed at respecting “Eastern values” has seen the mermaids get an official cover-up.
Ancol Dreamland spokeswoman Rika Lestari insisted no outside agitators were behind the cover-up. “There was no pressure from any group,” she said. “Ancol is trying to become an amusement park and vacation spot for families.” Mtcheew. If you knew it was offensive, why erect nude statues in the first place? Etinosa, please come and help me talk sense to these people.
When Yoga goes to your head
A woman who suffered a massive stroke caused by yoga bravely got back on her mat just one month later. 40-year-old Rebecca Leigh was performing a yogic headstand when she tore a major blood vessel in her neck. Today she cannot speak for more than a few minutes, suffers headaches daily and has severe memory loss.
“After decades of focusing on working out and my diet and making as many healthy decisions as I could for my body, having a stroke by doing yoga just didn’t seem fair,” she said. “But I had to get back out there and do the things that made me happy and one of those things was obviously my yoga practice.” Good for her. But me I like myself, that’s why I can’t come and be bursting veins anyhow. 15 press-ups in my dreams and I’m good to go.
