Ondo gov Orders Immediate Refund Of WAEC Fees To Students

The Executive Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has ordered all school principals to immediately refund 2021 West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) fee to students who have paid.

Lola Amuda, permanent secretary, ministry of education, science and technology under Akeredolu administration issued the directive to principals and heads of public secondary schools in Akure.

She spoke at a meeting with the state’s executive members of the All Nigeria Conference of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS) and other stakeholders in the education sector.

It was gathered that the directive is coming a week after Governor Rotimi Akeredolu approved N360 million for WASSCE enrolment for 25,736 students in public secondary schools in the state.

The approval was in line with the free education policy of the state government.

Amuda tasked the schools’ administrators to reciprocate the government’s good gesture by putting in their best and ensuring that the students performed excellently at the examination.

She described the principals as “the eyes and ears of government’’ in their schools and tasked them with proper implementation of the government’s policies and programmes in schools across the state.

She enjoined them to build the students academically as well as mould their characters and influence their views of the society positively so that they could grow into responsible adults.

The permanent secretary directed the principals to furnish the ministry with the names of all final year senior secondary students in their schools to establish their actual number.

On his part, Johnbull Mebawondu, the state president of ANCOPPS, thanked the government for being considerate and promised that the principals would abide by the government’s policy.

Mebawondu also stressed that the government’s gesture would relieve parents and guardians of the financial burden associated with WASSCE.

KWARA HIJAB CRISIS: MY EXPERIENCE AT A MISSIONARY SCHOOL AS A STUDENT

I recently read the address of His Excellency, the Executive Governor of kwara state on the civil unrest in the state over the use of hijab in Christian missionary schools.

In a bid to restore peace in the “state of harmony” the governor planned to revisit it’s decision which is to permit the use of hijab in christian missionary schools across the state – a decision which did not go down well with the Christians in the state.

Mr. Governor Sir, allow me to go through memory lane with my experience as a Christian in Muslim Missionary School.

I attended and obtained my SSCE from a Muslim Missionary school where am currently previleged to be the National Vice President of the Old Students Association.

During my stay in the noble school along with other christian students and muslims we
recite the islamic prayer at the assembly
everyday, no parent of ours ever came to the
school to complain. We were okay with it. Some of us even get home sometimes and recite the prayer as song because we got used to it overtime.

If a parent is not okay
with the school system , they simply just
take their children to another school.

Like you said on your write-up posted on your Facebook handle Sir there is need to respect people’s
believe and system .

Secondly, How can someone build a mosque in a Christian missionary school . Will they allow Christians to build church in a Muslim missionary school.

I remember at a point when we wanted to start a fellowship in the school, as I was the pioneer fellowship president, we were not allowed to use any where at the school premises for the fellowship, not until a nearby church was given to us by the church pastor before we could start the fellowship. Why? It’s a Muslim missionary school, and we all accept and appreciate it that way. Now imagine if we say we want to build a church in the school premises. You will agree with me it’s a no go area.

Please Sir, let’s true justice be served on this
issue.

For God’s sake, there should be peace in the
state of harmony. And things should be done equally and rightly.

Kwara is not an Islamic State. Both religion exist in the state and there should be love and harmony between both religion.

To all kwarans and Nigerians in entirety, religion and tribe is what we met in this world, we will all leave it here. Just maintain a truthful spirit wherever you find yourself. Very important.

God bless our Governor, God bless all Kwarans, God bless Kwara, God bless Nigeria.

ASUP Declares Nationwide Strike April 6

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) has declared a nationwide strike from April 6, 2021 over alleged ‘’culture of neglect by government on issues affecting the technological education sub sector.’’

ASUP President, Anderson U Ezeibe, told repeorters at the end of the 99th meeting of the National Executive Council of the union at Hassan Usman Polytechnic, Katsina the industrial action was informed by six key factors affecting polytechnic education.

He stated government has consistently failed to address them over the years.

The issues, according to him, include non- implementation of ASUP/FG agreement of 2010, non-payment of salaries and arrears of the new minimum wage in some state-owned Polytechnics, among others.

While also admitting a meeting with the Federal Government has been held in October 2020 on some of the pending issues, the union however insisted the outcome of the meeting was a write off as government failed to implement the resolutions reached

The union further listed 10 conditions under which the proposed April 6 industrial action may be called off to include: Implementation of the NEEDS Assessment report of 2014, reconstitution of the Governing Councils of Polytechnics, release of Promotional areas in federal Polytechnics, among others.
