Journalists who report on water and sanitation issues in six African countries can win fully- funded study trips to major newsrooms in the United States as part of a new contest by impactAFRICA. Access to safe water across Africa is a major public health issue that is often underreported by mainstream media across Africa, despite research by agencies such as the United Nations which estimates that 300 million of the continent’s 800 million citizens live in water- scarce environments with millions dying unnecessarily from water-borne diseases. impactAFRICA will therefore sponsor three journalists to spend 10 days visiting and learning from some of the world’s top media outlets from three cities in the U.S.A. impactAFRICA is the continent’s largest fund for data-driven storytelling and is offering $500,000 in support through a series of contests this year to help boost digital journalism across the continent. Any reportage on water or sanitation issues in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania or Zambia is eligible. Stories can be on any platform and in any format, as long as they are published or broadcast in the target countries during the period March 30 to June 30, 2016. We offer $500,000 in support for pioneering data journalism and innovative reporting that tackles development issues, such as public healthcare, in six African countries: Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia. Submission deadline for round one of impactAFRICA is April 15, 2016 and the deadline for entering round two is June 30, 2016. CLICK HERE TO APPLY

The board is also charged with the responsibility to administer similar examinations for applicants to Nigerian public and private monotechnics, polytechnics, and colleges of educations. All of these candidates must have obtained the West Africa School Certificate, now West African Examinations Council, WAEC, or its equivalent, National Examination Council (Nigeria), NECO.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on Saturday identified examination malpractice as a major challenge militating against its operations in its 64 years of existence. The council’s Head of Test Administration, Mrs Frances Iweha-Onukwu, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos. According to her, the scourge is a canker worm that has eaten deep in the fabric among candidates, not only in Nigeria, but also in member countries. She, however, noted that the council was gradually winning the war as it kept introducing new cutting-edge technology to stop the ugly trend. “One major challenge we are battling against, since inception, has been that of examination malpractice, but we are happy that we are winning the war. “We know that the candidates might want to beat our technology, but we will continue to make sure that we check them in any way they try,’’ she told NAN. According to Iweha- Onukwu, another major challenge is the ‘rogue website’. “Tackling ‘rogue website’ has been a serious challenge the board is facing,’’ she said. NAN reports that a rogue website is one that subverts a legitimate web site by appearing to replace it. Iweha-Onukwu said that perpetrators of such act use rogue website to distract lazy candidates, who, instead of studying hard for their examination, busy themselves logging onto the rogue website. She, however, said that many operators of the fake sites were being apprehended with the help of security agents. The official said her desire was to see the council compete favourably with international examination bodies like the Educational Testing Service (ETS) among others.

ABOUT FUPRE The Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun (FUPRE), Delta State, Nigeria was established in March 2007 under a Federal Government of Nigeria initiative to build a specialized University to produce unique high level manpower and relevant expertise for the Oil & Gas sector in Nigeria and worldwide. At first, it occupied the PTI Conference centre, Effurun Delta state, which is few kilometres away from the permanent site. The new site covered large hectares of land generously leased by the chiefs and people of Uviwe kingdom. FUPRE is the first of its kind in Africa and it is destined to be the premier international institution-of-choice with the state- of-the-art facilities to provide the petroleum and allied sectors, world class education, training, research, consultancy and extension services. FUPRE organise its academic activities along college lines. Under this arrangement, related Departments are grouped to form a College without an intervening tier of faculties. Colleges are by no means self-sufficient as the University encourage inter-disciplinary approach to all its teaching and research activities. Below are the two Colleges present: College of Science College of Technology The foundational College of the University was College of science with 113 foundation students. The foundation students began their courses at FUPRE, on May, 2007. The College not only enrols its own students but serves as support for other colleges to be established. The General Studies and Entrepreneurship Unit was also established in the College to coordinate all programmes of the University aiming at producing rounded graduates with entrepreneurial skills. The first SOD turning at the permanent site of the University, took place on 10 March, 2010.
Vice Chancellor of University of Ibadan, UI, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka has disclosed that 80 students were expelled from the institution for poor academic performance. Olayinka made this known during the matriculation ceremony for 4008 students for the 2015/ 2016 session which took place on Thursday, March 17, 2016. Twenty eight of the expelled students came from the sciences, while 20 came from Agriculture and Forestry department. Arts produced 13 of them, Basic Medical Sciences 1, Public Health 1, Social Sciences 6, Education 4, Technology 5, and Veterinary Medicine 2. Olayinka also listed other reasons students might be dismissed for studying in the school. READ: Students protest over lack of power, water “Any of the under-listed is a criminal offence whichmust be referred to the Police: fraud, theft, burglary, assault occasioning bodily harm, murder, membership of a secret cult inside or outside campus, possession of fire-arms, arson, rape, possession and/or use of hard drug and drug trafficking and other criminal offences,” he said. He also urged students to face their studies, saying: “Let me inform you that at the University of Ibadan, we do not tell students what to think. You have to learn to think for yourselves. Our teaching is designed to produce intellectual self- reliance-to teach you how to learn and how to take charge of your thinking. We encourage you to be independent in your judgment and critical in your analysis. We work to help you develop these skills here at UI, and we hope you will retain them for life. They will continue to serve you as you experience a world that is constantly and rapidly changing. I, therefore, want to charge you not to restrict yourselves to your field of study alone so as to profit maximally from the numerous activities that will be presented to you throughout the duration of your course in the university.” He warned the students to comport themselves in a manner that is befitting of an undergraduate student and or new postgraduate student of this premier institution, as the university would not tolerate any act of “hooliganism and wanton destruction of properties – all in the name of students’ demonstration, indecent dressing, prostitution and or any other social vices.”

s Frustrate Students 22 mins ago • by Chika Jones • Add Comment • 21 Views 5 Ways Nigerian Lecturers Frustrate Students For the average Nigerian student, the fear of lecturers is the beginning of wisdom. This is especially true for those students in Federal or State institutions. Most lecturers are a law onto themselves and it is either you bend to their demands or you find yourself battling major issues during your stay in the tertiary institution. What are some ways, lecturers frustrate us as students? 1. Some lecturers will tell you that no matter what you write, you cannot make the A grade in their course. They will say it with so much pride, you will wonder if there is any need to even study hard for the course. And when your friends are reading, you will be like… WHY DO I BOTHER? 2. Other lecturers will force you to buy handouts and textbooks. This is even more frustrating, because the textbooks are usually copied directly from Google and then bound. No research whatsoever. The printing is usually quite poor, and you will see a lecturer selling a textbook of about 150 pages for 2,500. But no textbook, no good grade, so you buy it and be like…… ITS NOT YOUR FAULT, ITS BECAUSE I CAME TO UNIVERSITY 3. Then there are those lecturers who live for the money. No matter what you write in your exam or tests, they will always give you a C. Unless you bribe them. Those type of lecturers are frustrating because, only dumb students that pay bribes, pass their courses. Yet, when they come to teach in class, they will be the same ones preaching about God. You will just be looking at them like….. IS IT NOT THIS MAN THAT LIKES BRIBE? 4. Then those lecturers that mess with your life, by giving you Area of Concentration (AOC). You will be in class, reading very part of the course, then they will walk in and give AOC. You will focus on the AOC, only to enter the exam hall and see something entirely different. So you are just in the hall like…………… BUT THIS LECTURER IS A BASTARD SHA…. 5. Lastly, those lecturers that will give you 1+1 in the class and 2+2 in the test, then on exam day: If Mikel Obi hits the ball with his right foot into the net at Stamford Bridge on a hot afternoon, what is the circumference of the sun and the relationship of the heat emanating from it. You will enter the exam hall and when question papers are shared, you will be like….. I AM DEAD, WHAT IS ALL THIS? Do you know any other way, lecturers frustrate? Let us know in the comment box.

Single ladies who build a shell around themselves for a long time may make men see them as a no-go area. This is because it does not take men a long time to back out of a relationship which is time wasting. man and woman disagree on their relationship status The end result of any faithful relationship should be conjugal bliss. It is not too good if a relationship starts on a promising note, but later hits the rock. Although, both parties could be at fault, but the men these days are fuming that some single ladies do not have any attribute of being a wife. Some of the reasons below are some of the things men discuss among themselves. 1. I’m in a relationship It is rather funny to hear more than 70% of Nigerian single ladies say they are in a relationship when a man meets them for the first time. If a man meets a woman through the different social media chatting rooms or online dating sites, she could indicate there that she is single. However, the story changes when a man asks her to further confirm her relationship status. The next thing she says is that, she has a man in her life. This is rather absurd! The question men who are searching for wife do ask is, where are the single ladies who are looking for husbands? A true life situation is the story of a man who showed so much interest in a woman about three years ago. The woman rebuffed him initially, but later gave out her phone number. When the man asked her out, she willingly agreed. The relationship continued in this way for six months. Both man and woman exchanged chats, calls and gifts. However, when the man asked if she was ready for marriage after the seventh month of them being together, she said she was in a relationship. The man later asked her severally if she was sure she was indeed in a relationship. She reiterated her initial statement that she was in a relationship. The man told her he had no choice than to leave her. After a few months of leaving the lady, the man met another lady who was ready for marriage. Both the man and the new lady got married in little or no time of knowing each other. READ ALSO: Mistakes people make when going into a new relationship The man after his second wedding anniversary was surprised to see a strange text message from a female folk, stating if they could re-new their relationship. The man called the number as he had deleted the former lady’s number when they parted ways. She was overtly surprised that it was the same lady who said she was in a relationship when he met her three years ago. The man had to tell her he was two years old in his marriage. He told the lady to look elsewhere. He reminded her of all what transpired between both of them when they were in their pseudo-relationship. 2. I’m not yet ready for marital challenges Even, a single lady who graduated from the university or polytechnic, who is close to 30 years old, still believes she has to join the Nigerian labour market first. She believes the most important thing to her is to not to use her critical thinking and intuition to remove herself from singlehood. She thinks it is employment or nothing else. Men are tired of all these. When these single ladies are fortunate to get the job they want, they are entangled in the job as men see them as old cargoes even if they have all the money in the world. Men will not want to marry them anymore. 3. We don’t need to see each other, lets chat The craze for chatting at almost all the time of the day by some ladies is worrisome. Ladies are more guilty of this practice. It is a common thing to see some single ladies chat inside commercial vehicles or on okada, or even when they are walking along a busy road. The headache of men is when they want to see these single ladies for a one on one talk. Men may be surprised to hear these single ladies tell them, they should chat over the phone. Men continue to wonder for how long they will continue to chat with a woman they feel they should marry. The proliferation of social media and online chatting rooms have done so much damaging effects on single ladies. These ladies can not control their lust for these unneeded social media chatting rooms. A particular single lady could be on at least 10 different social media chatting channels, interacting with various men and enjoying the fantasy of chatting. 4. I can’t settle for less Life starts from somewhere. Rome was not built in a day. A singe lady, who wants a man to do almost everything she wants must really be dreaming. The more she asks a man to buy the things she desires before marriage, the less the possibility that such a man will marry her. All responsible men do not want to live above their means of livelihood, They have no choice than to leave these women who show they belong to the highest rung of societal ladder. 5. I can’t let any man push me around Women liberalisation and women emancipation have been used to confuse women more and more. About fifty years ago in Nigeria, it was easier for a single lady to get a responsible man as husband. But these days, single women are often depressed. They do say husbands have become scarce commodities. Everyone is blaming the other for his or her problem. In Nigerian cultures, a man should be in charge. However, the present set of young ladies believe, they should be in charge. This is one of the major causes of the high rate of divorce presently. No single lady wants to see the man as her landlord.
You can't fuck them all to know who will satisfy you, but these 3 things should help you decide who to take to bed. Almost all men think they will rock your world if only you give them the chance. If you are looking to have a toe-curling, orgasm -inducing time, it is not possible to give them all a chance » to know if they are capable. Simply look out for these 3 things below. Too much talk: Most guys will blab your ears off about how much of a sex stud they are. They give you examples of 'satisfied customers', and are usually the first to send you dick pics. But sometimes, these men are trying to convince themselves as much as they are trying to convince you. Only an insecure person who go on bragging about it. And you should know, an insecure person is usually insecure in bed. He will be so worried about what you think of him that he won't completely let go and drive you crazy. That does not sound good, does it? So, beware of the talkers because a man who will rock your world will focus more on seducing you and wooing you, rather than overhyping himself.
