Once Again: President Buhari Takes A Stand On Naira Devaluation (Must Read)

President Muhammadu Buhari rejects naira devaluation – Says developed countries can afford it because of their competition – Reveals his administration’s plan to cusion the effect of oil fall in the global market. President Muhammadu Buhari has once again reiterated that his government would not devalue the naira, Premium Times reports. Speaking on February 20, at a Presidential Panel Roundtable on Investment and Growth Opportunities at the opening session of the Africa 2016: “Business for Africa, Egypt and the World” at Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, Buhari completely ruled out any thought of devaluing the currency. President Buhari, who stressed his disapproval to naira devaluation, revealed that Nigeria cannot compete with developed countries which are already in production competition among themselves. He stated that developed countries can afford to afford to devalue their local currencies. “Developed countries are competing among themselves and when they devalue they compete better and manufacture and export more. But we are not competing and exporting but importing everything including toothpicks. So, why should we devalue our currency?” Buhari asked. The president disclosed that his government was mapping out ways to guarantee national food security before export of food produce to other countries. President Buhari said the only way Nigeria can escape from the current dwindling oil price in the global oil market because of her dependence on oil revenue is to focus on agriculture. He said with the increasing number of unemployed youths in the country, his administration would also focus on solid minerals development. “The land is there and we need machinery inputs, fertilizer and insecticides,” Buhari said.

Here's Why Men Cheat Their Girlfriend/Wife

Men are found to be more on the side of polygamy than women. As humans, none of us are monogamous anyway, but with the development of society and culture, we have created for ourselves rules and restrictions. They bind our animal instincts into standard norms and prevent a lot of chaos and violence and stuff (also lead to it). Talking about sex and relationships in such a world, the biological and individual factors have led to a lot of unacceptable (but non-criminal) behaviour such as cheating in a relationship. And with the first line, men might cheat more than women. But what might be the factors involved?   Born Liars? Well, many people are just born liar and it is equally true for women as well. But women cheating is a bigger stigma and shameful than men and this fear leads to women cheating less. Even for the fact that women are biologically supposed to lie as a counter to men's muscular advantage against each other.  Confidence, in self and to win others' Yes, and in the process, they lose everyone's often their own too. Women need to just get that one guy to show her worth while men need to win over more women to build their egos. Also, women tend to seek security and stability while men need adventure. All combined, men might cheat.

Benefits of eating groundnut

Groundnuts are known by many names. Some call it peanuts or even monkey nuts. They are among the cheapest nuts, available abundantly all over the world. They are often referred to as the ‘poor man’s protein’ because they are abundantly available, and can be afforded by even the poorest of men. They come in an easy-to-crack shell and have an outer kernel that may often be removed before consumption. To many, groundnuts are just snacks to be munched on whenever they are watching their favorite programmes on TV, To others it is something to hang on to when hungry before the actual meal arrives. Groundnuts are legumes and are very rich in proteins. They are also rich in fats which is why oil can be extracted from them. Although the humble nut may just be snack to most people, they contain some much nutrient that are beneficial to health. Here are some reasons why you should eat groundnuts: They Are Good For Your Heart It is true that groundnuts contain a lot of fats, which is one of the reasons many don’t like it. However, these fats are very healthy for the heart. They contain both monounsaturated and poly unsaturated fats – which are both good for maintaining the health of the cardiovascular system. They help prevent cholesterol and plaque build up in the arteries, therefore reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. They Are Excellent Source Of Protein For Body Building Many people overlook groundnuts as an important source of protein.They contain more protein than meat and two and half times more protein than you can obtain from eggs. A 100g serving of groundnuts contains about 28g of proteins. This makes up for about 50% of protein’s RDA. Proteins form the base of all the enzymes and are also digested to produce amino acids – which form the building blocks of all cellular material. Proteins are required for the healthy functioning of the endocrine glands. They also assist in growth and development of the body.

Groundnuts Improves Your Mood And Prevents Depression Groundnuts contain Tryptophan – a biological chemical which improves mood and helps in the production of the ‘happiness’ chemical known as serotonin. Increased amount of serotonin in the blood can help fight depression and improve your overall mood, this is the reason women suffering from postpartum depression are advised to eat lots of groundnut. They Are Rich In Vitamins Apart from protein, groundnuts are also rich in vitamins. It contains about 13 different vitamins and 26 essential minerals for good health and strong bones. Every 100 grams of groundnuts come, among others, with:90mg of calcium, 350mg of phosphorous, 2,8mg of iron, 7.0 mg of vitamin E.

Often we rush after the latest idea, the great new method or the solution no one has ever considered. But throughout history wise people have recorded timeless wisdom. Time management, personal relationships, mindset, comfort zones and perseverance were not unknown to ancient leaders. In fact most of the principles of success we employ today have been understood for many centuries. What you will find below are quotes from philosophers, kings, emperors, poets, lawyers, mathematicians, teachers and more. Every quote has been preserved for more that 1,000 years and still applies to your life today. Here are 17 Ancient Quotes That Can Fuel Your Success: The quotes above demonstrate that the basic principles of success in life have never changed. Having the proper mindset, moving outside your comfort zone, developing and maintaining healthy relationships and keeping focus were recognized a thousand and more years ago. Human nature has not changed and the ways in which we succeed, by stepping out and helping others, remain as the foundation for personal progress. Following the works of a contemporary author or speaker may match more with your perspective or outlook and there is nothing wrong with that. But sometimes looking back into antiquity shows you the long view. Technologies and methods may change, but what it takes to succeed in the world remains constant.

Kaduna Government sacks headmaster, suspends 2 others for diverting food

The Kaduna State Government has sacked two senior education officials and suspended two others for diverting food meant for the feeding of primary school pupils. The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Dr Shehu Adamu, said at a news briefing in Kaduna on Thursday, that the officials had circumvented laid down procedures of the government's Schools Feeding Programme, which commenced in January. "A School Support Officer in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area (LGA), Ibrahim Abdullahi has been sacked for supplying oranges and biscuits meant for school pupils to a fruits vendor in Birning Gwari to sell for him. "Also, the Headmaster of L.E.A Labi, in Karji, Kubau LGA was also sacked for collecting bribe from a vendor who received government money but did not cook. "Instead of returning the money she shared it with the headmaster. "We have also received a report that the Headmaster of Nuhu Bamali Primary School in Kaduna South LGA loaded his car with pupils' oranges and drove out. "The headmaster has been suspended until investigation is concluded and if found guilty, he will also be sacked. "The police is also investigating the Headmaster of Nomadic Fulani School in Ricifa, Soba LGA for inflating the number of pupils in the school. "He is also suspended and would be sacked if found guilty,'' Adamu said. The commissioner disclosed that a query had been issued to the Education Secretary of Igabi LGA, for allegedly contracting men as food vendors for the schools feeding programme instead of women. "According to the report, the men would cook the food and hire women to serve the pupils in the schools. We are investigating the matter and he would be sacked if found wanting.'' The commissioner also said that the ministry was investigating allegations that some vendors were supplying soya bean sauce in place of egg sauce to pupils. He warned that any food vendor found engaged in the practice would be prosecuted. Adamu said the government would undertake the biometric data capture of all the food vendors contracted for the programme, to stop the replacement of the vendors from the original list by some mischievous officials. He appealed to Parent Teachers Association and School-Based Management Boards to strictly monitor the programme and report anyone found undermining the process. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that over 1.5 million pupils in over 4,000 primary schools are benefiting from the free feeding programme.

David Venn 'Nigerians will no longer pay for calls, SMS by 2019' - Spectranet MD

He noted that with the fast growing usage of social media applications, such as Skype, Imo, Whatsapp, BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook Messenger, telecommunications had allowed subscribers to use their data service to make calls and sms. 24/7 Live - Subscribe to the Pulse Newsletter! Subscribe The Managing Director (MD), Spectranet Ltd., Mr. David Venn, on Wednesday said Nigerians would no longer pay for calls and Short Message Services (SMS), on mobile networks before the end of 2019. Venn made this prediction at an interactive session with newsmen in Lagos. He noted that with the fast growing usage of social media applications, such as Skype, Imo, Whatsapp, BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook Messenger, telecommunications had allowed subscribers to use their data service to make calls and sms. Venn said subscribers spend a lot of money buying credit to make voice calls, send SMS and also subscribe to data services at the same time on a particular network. He explained that even though subscribers still patronised voice and SMS services from the mobile operators, data service was cost- effective, faster to send SMS and make voice calls. Venn noted that presently, data service providers had been improving on the broadband network provided to customers due to increased patronage in the data services. The MD noted that in other advanced countries, mobile subscribers no longer paid for the use of voice and SMS on their mobile networks. Venn said that in the United Kingdom, mobile subscribers make use of Skype application to make calls, as long as the caller and the recipient were connected to data service on their phones. The MD said telecoms operators were losing huge revenue, especially from their SMS service, with the wide use of these social media. Venn added that mobile operators would be forced to expand their data network to accommodate the growing number of subscribers that use their networks to surf the internet. The MD, therefore, urged mobile operators to improve on their broadband service to the undeserved and unserved areas in the country. He said the company also planned to build more base stations across its coverage to improve broadband connectivity in undeserved areas before the end of the year. Venn urged the Federal Government to make the business environment convenient for the data providers to operate. He contended that many data service providers had closed down due to the high cost of doing business in the country.

Yobe State University, YSU Students’ Registration Schedule

The management of the Yobe State University, YSU, Damaturu has published the schedule for undergraduate students’s central registration exercise for 2015/2016 academic session. The detailed schedule can be viewed from the document below; Yobe State University, YSU Students’ Registration Schedule ABOUT THE STATE The state borders the Nigerian states of Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, and Jigawa. It borders the Diffa Region and the Zinder Region to the north in The Republic of Niger. Because the state lies mainly in the dry savanna belt, conditions are hot and dry for most the year, except in the southern part of the state which has a milder climate. History The State came into being on the 27 August 1991. It was carved out of the old Borno State by the Babangidaadministration. Yobe State was created because the old Borno State was one of Nigeria‘s largest states in terms of land area and was therefore considered to be too large for easy administration and meaningful development. Ethnic rivalries within the old Borno State also contributed to the decision. On 14 May 2013, President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in Yobe State along with neighboring Borno State and Adamawa State , due to the activities of the terrorist network Boko Haram.Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram

The Faculties, Departments and programmes in the multi- campus university are presently distributed in the various campuses. The two main assigned responsibilities of Cross River University of Technology are to produce high quality and well-trained graduates and researchers well-equipped for the provision of quality life, food, fibre, and shelter for the people in a sustainable manner, using well researched techniques of Science and Technology. These are adequately captured in the University crest (otherwise referred to as ‘logo’), the University’s motto, vision, mission and philosophy. University Crest The crest of Cross River University of Technology depicts a shield housing a checked board with the acronym of the University on top. The shield represents strength indicating the power of Science and Technology to enhance quality human life and maintain a balance between man and his environment. The checked board represents the quest for knowledge and research, which the University hopes to inspire in its staff and students to make them excel and contribute to the growth and development of society. Motto Technology for human advancement Vision To be a Centre of Excellence in Technology with highly qualified staff and excellent teaching and research facilities for production of graduates that can compete with their peers anywhere in the world Mission To produce well trained graduates and researchers in Science and Technology, equipped for active participation in socio- economic development of the State and the Nation. Philosophy Development in its various ramifications is education-driven and, in particular, national development and the capacity to produce the requisite goods and services that meet the needs of the citizens of a nation, state and community, could be fostered through carefully packaged and coordinated programmes of education that focus essentially on Science and Technology.
