Suleiman Hostel

 

The Largest hostel in sub Saharan Africa which has since time past belonged to A.b.u boys has now been converted to Female hostel. The student affairs division through the office of the vice chancellor passed a press release informing all shop proprietress in Suleiman that the conversion has been confirmed  which will take effect from 2018/2019 session.which will affect the presence of males transcating any kind of business in the hall.

No news yet to where the boys will be moved but rumors say they will be moved to the new site currently going through proper construction. But whatever it may be,it’s a big grave move which means that girls will now have comfortable rooms which should be enough.

 

Asuu and federal government.

Assu

The news of an indefinite strike came as a very big suprise to me, I personally thought that federal government has settled whatever deal they have with Asuu, little did I know that nothing practically has been done to the union. i wondered like Alice in wonderland ,after so much research I decided to share with you the reasons behind the indefinite Asuu strike.

The meeting which held on Sunday 4th November at federal university of technology (F.U.T) Akure, where the national executive of the council met and expressed their collective disappointment over the failed promises the government has thrown to them.No progress at all in the implementation of the 2009/FGN/ASUU agreement , memorandum of understanding (Mou 2012 and 2013) and memorandum of action (MOA 2017).

Allow me then to break it down to you.

The union wants the reconstitution of the current Government team to allow a leader that has the interest of the people at heart.

*release the forensic audit on earned academic allowances (EAA)

*payment of outstanding earned allowances and mainstreaming of them into salaries beginning 2018.

*payment of all arrears of shortfall in salaries to all universities that have met the verification requirements of the presidential initiatives on continuous audit (PICA)

*release of university pension fund operational license.

To end the strike 2017 Asuu signed a memorandum of action as against memorandum of understanding, the memorandum of action that was signed 2017 where to be accomplished in six weeks (oct, 2017). But a year has passed and more and nothing has been done.

 

now lucky enough for us as Abusite, we were already done with session before the strike started . But there were already rumors that our new session is to start immediately so that we will run first semester before election. Either ways we are all at loss and we need Asuu and federal government to come to a conclusion before the year runs out.

 

Are you still blaming Asuu for the indefinite strike?

do you want A.b.u to cut of from Asuu?

Are you enjoying the strike what’s your opinion on this issue.

Asuu strike again 😩

 

A.B.U joining Asuu a curse or a blessing.

The Brief history of ASUU in A.B.U

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) began as an Association of University Teachers (AUT). It was registered in 1978 as Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) under its first President Dr. Biodun Jeyifor (University of Ibadan) with branches in many Federal Universities. Later, State Universities were also given Chapter by the union. Other National Presidents since then were: Dr. Festus Iyayi (University of Benin), Dr. Mahmoud Tukur (Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria), Dr. Attahiru mahmoud Jega (Bayero University, Kano), Dr. Asisi Asobie (University of Nigeria, Nsukka), Dr. Oladiop Fashina (2000-2004, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife), Dr. Abdullahi Sule-Kano (2004-2008, Usman Danfodio University, Sokoto), Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie (2008-2012, Imo State University, Owerri) and Dr. Nasir Isah Fagge (2012, Beyero University, Kano).

The Branch in Ahmadu Bello University began its activities in 1982 and subsequently the Union developed under different leadership to be a vanguard for the quest for due process in the University, Justice and accountability. Through its activities the branch had reasons to disagree on different issues with several of the University’s Vice Chancellors and Governing Councils, all in a bid to bring progress to the University System and develop education in general.

The Activities of the ASUU-ABU Branch are conducted not in isolation but always in agreement with the National body and in consonance with the principles of the Union in general, as enshrined in its constitution. The branch contributes financially to the national body monthly check-off dues, sixty percent of which goes by the national body. The Union, both at the local and national levels relies solely on which contributions by members to fund all activities and therefore receives no donations from governments or private agencies.

The Union has gradually grown to affect all its members in the areas of welfare, salaries,human rights, and gender appreciation.

The Secretariat of the ASUU-ABU Branch was first located near the basketball court facing Amina Hall. With the construction of the Kontagora Square, the ASUU Secretariat moved to its present location beside the Security Division, opposite the Faculty of Arts. The motto of the union is “Knowledge Truth, Service”.

Increasingly and over the years, the Uion has become a household name both locally and nationally because of its persistent effort to fight for the improvement of government funding to education, increase in teaching facilities, staff and student accommodation, free tuition and general welfare of University workers and Nigerians in general. ASUU, therefore, stands for the principle of natural justice and the rule of law. And as a trade Union in Nigeria, it is affiliated to the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).

Malwedhe or Idibala Challenge (the falling dance)

0

So recently there’s been this new dance step making rounds via social media. It’s on that hip friend’s status on WhatsApp, that cool girl’s wall on Facebook, all over YouTube and off course it’s on twitter.

And No, I’m not referring to “Shaku Shaku” or Olamide’s kpakujemu; It’s actually [drum roll please].

The Malwedhe or Idibala Dance Challenge. Still confused? (sigh).  The dance step where everyone collapses on the floor at the point in the song where the artist says “Kea Idibala”.

About the Song.

The Song was recorded by a local South African Artist named King Monada it’s titled “Malwedhe”, and it was written and performed in Khelobedu Language (it’s the language of the Balobedu tribe in South Africa). The song can best be described as a balanced mix of funny but real (The word “Dramedy” comes to mind). In the song the artist warns his partner to treat him delicately because he has a disease of collapsing (ring any bells?). Specifically he warns:

Wa nhlala kea idibala (If you break up with me, I collapse) …

Wa njolela Kea idibala. (if you cheat on me, I collapse)…

Wa tima phono kea idibala. (if you switch off your phone, I collapse)…

You get the gist..
