A man dressed like a woman caught with underwear yesterday at one of the female hostels of the Ogun State College of Health Technology in Ilese-Ijebu. He was reportedly nabbed with a bag full of the underwear.
According to reports, the suspect had gone to the hostel under the guise of selling ice cream. However, when leaving, he was found with more items than he went in with.
This prompted the security guards to demand for a search, only to find a bag full of underwear with him.
It was later discovered that he dressed up like a woman to make his operation easier. The suspect has since been handed over to the police for thorough investigation.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has urged the Federal Government to show concrete evidence of commitment to agreements on meeting its demands over the on-going strike
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU President, said in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Monday that the union would communicate its decision on offers made by the government on Tuesday.
Ogunyemi said that contrary to some media reports, the union did not reject the offer of Federal Government or make fresh demands.
He, however, said that ASUU had shown a lot of commitment and called on the government to commit itself by paying one year’s tranche of allowances before the strike can be called off.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, after meeting with the union on Jan. 4 said the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Accountant- General of the Federation had provided evidence of N15.4 billion for the payment of salary shortfall in public universities.
He also noted that there was evidence that Mr President had approved N20 billion to offset the outstanding arrears of the 2009 and 2012, audit verified earnings in the university system.
Ngige, however, said the fund was being worked on and would be released to ASUU as soon as the process was complete, among other demands of the union.
On ASUU’s final decision on FG demands, Ogunyemi said “We have been reviewing the offer made by the government and we have concluded our consultations with our members.
“We have concluded our consultations and hopefully by tomorrow we are going to transmit the feedback from our members to the Minister of Labour and Employment.
“What we said was that we are not insisting on having the total package.
“We are saying if government could give us one out of the five tranches on the revitalisation fund it will be a kind of bending backward in the interest of the students and national interest.
“So, rather than insisting that government should release a total of one trillion naira which we know is not feasible, government can, at least, give one tranche that can be spread over four quarters, starting with the first quarter now.
“This is the shift that the media are misinterpreting to mean a fresh demand. There is no fresh demand on our list whether you are talking of revitalisation or earned academic allowance, ” Ogunyemi said.
On the issue of earned academic allowances, he said government had promised to release N20 billion and that the balance would be spread over four instalments but without stating timelines.
Ogunyemi said members of the union were insisting on having timelines for the payments.
“Our members are also saying government had also promised to mainstream and that promise is not new, it was a promise of 2017.
“Our members have also noted that government had promised that the earned academic allowance will be paid within the mainstream budget which they also promised to do in 2018, yet they did not do it
“Our members are saying if you are promising again in 2019, let us see the evidence, which is clear enough,” he added.
Ogunyemi also said that members of the union were demanding to see money of salary shortfall paid into their accounts although they had seen the evidence of approval on paper.
He said the members of the union were demanding for concrete evidence on all outstanding areas that involved payments.
” Our members are saying let us see concrete evidence that government has paid not that government will be promising that it will do this and will do that.
“We did that with the N20 billion in 2017, government promised to release N20 billion in two instalments for September and October, 2017, that never happened until we went on strike in 2018.
“So, our members are saying, let’s go beyond writing anything on paper.
“Like I said earlier, on the issue of revitalisation, our members are saying we should not stop at tokenism,” he said.
Son of the winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief Moshood Abiola, Jamiu said the Yoruba should vote massively for President Muhammadu Buhari to honour his father.
Jamiu, who is a member of the Directorate of Contact and Mobilisation of the Women and Youth Presidential Campaign Team, described Buhari as a detribalised leader, Sunday Punch reports.
Speaking with journalists in Lagos, Jamiu said Buhari should not be described anywhere as tribalistic, adding that if he was, he would not have honoured his father 25 years after the annulment of the election.
He urged the Yoruba to reelect Buhari on February 16 so as not to betray Abiola and his slain wife, Kudirat, in their graves.
“People have to understand that any man that can honour a victory won by another man from another tribe is not a tribalist. If he was tribalistic, he would not have done what he did to M.K.O Abiola.
“Buhari had even said in the letter of honour that June 12 is more important than the Independence Day, Nigerians should understand that and I believe that the Yoruba that I know will not betray Chief M.K.O Abiola in his grave by voting against a man who honoured him.
“The Yoruba are known to appreciate and value anybody who genuinely does something good for them genuinely.”
