Increment in Corpers Allowance Says DG - Kazaure

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Director General, Kazaure, disclosed that the increase in corps members monthly allowance would be determined by the new national minimum wage ”when it takes effect around September 2018.”
The official said this on Monday while fielding questions from journalists newsmen shortly after the swearing-in ceremony of the 2018 Batch ‘A’ corps members at the NYSC orientation camp in Kusalla, Karaye Local Government Area of Kano state.
According to him, “our efforts to ensure that the monthly allowance of the corps members is increased have yielded a very good result following series of discussion with the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige.”
Mr Kazaure added that the N18,800 paid to them is grossly inadequate to cater for their needs during the mandatory one year service to the nation.
The federal government had set-up a committee to look into the upward review of the minimum wage which he said will also determine the increase of the corps members’ allowance.
“We have been assured that when the new minimum wage takes effect, also the corps members allowance will be reviewed upward,” Mr Kazaure assured.
The NYSC DG also disclosed that 82,000 corps members were deployed nationwide for the 2018 Batch ‘A’ orientation course across various states except those with security challenges.
In his remarks, the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, urged the corps members to shun all acts capable of denting the image of the scheme or which would sour their relationship with the camp officials.
“You are to be guided by the sense of duty and discipline at all times, that would undoubtedly lead you to succeed in your entire life,” Mr Ganduje said.
Earlier in his welcome address, the NYSC Coordinator in Kano, Ladan Baba said no fewer than 2,487 corps members were registered in the camp, comprising 1,289 males and 1,198 females.
Mr Baba added that the corps members since the beginning of the three-week orientation had been adapting to the various activities in the camp and have behaved well.

Adebola Williams: A Greatness Forged in Hopelessness and Despair

Naturally, the exploits of great men, when told, tend to be spurring. This time, however, I was more than inspired and motivated learning about and meeting this great individual at the Centre for Women in Abuja during the 2015 National Youth Reform Conference which had my organisation as a partner. I was a member of the planning committee at this event where Mr. Adebola Williams was a speaker. I must confess, I bloated with admiration at the personality of this simple yet sophisticated and awesome man. From my short encounter with this media mogul, I could boldly tell that Debola Williams is a personification of altruism. He is a selfless, charitable, and large-hearted man. Ever since then, I have always been his greatest admirer.

It was this kindled interest in Mr. Adebola Williams that glued me to my phone and patted me up when I slumbered off to listen to this man’s speech on the second and last day of the recent Obama Foundation leadership summit held in the United States. At this two-day summit, which kicked off on Wednesday, November 1 2017, a handful of speakers delivered wonderful speeches and a number of distinguished and promising youths stood by the lectern to tell inspiring stories of success. To keep track of this auspicious event, I sat up late at night and intently stared at my mobile screen following the trend of the event on Bellanaija. As beautiful as these speeches were, the breathtaking story of greatness which was kindled by hopelessness and fueled by despair, as told by Adebola Williams, unusually caught my attention. His thunderously applauded eight-minute-six-second speech at the event was expectedly engaging and extraordinarily inspiring. For anyone who listened to his speech, it was a narrative of how this ingenious young mind built an empire of hope for the hopeless African youths and how this empire has engaged more than thirty million youths in the past eleven years of its existence. Indeed, like Adebola Williams said, “In despair lies several opportunities; especially to be pioneer, especially to be great”.

After listening to the speech, I was forced to further re-think the opportunities that lie in the seemingly ‘god-forsaken Nigerian land’. It was amazingly inspiring to hear that at 18, Debola and his friends rose to the responsibility of converting the African youths' hopelessness and despair in government to a flourishing media business under the name RED – a social business that inspires young Africans to take social and political action through the power of storytelling.

Going through the chronicles of this rare genius’ life, I was most marveled learning that Debola and his friend, Chude started their business with zero capital. And by this, I am not saying that in a metaphoric sense - the prospering RED Media was literally kick started with #0 and it has never got a capital injection. This is incredible considering the fact that lack of fund or its inaccessibility is the foremost bottleneck to entrepreneurial success in this part of the world. At this point, my heart desired nothing than a mentoring session with this veteran entrepreneurs. I couldn’t be more surprised that the brains won the 2014 CNBC Young Business Leader of the year award.

At 31, Debola Williams is an uncommon greatness having scored unmatched points in the media profession, entrepreneurship, civic advocacy, and human capital development. At this relatively young age, he has co-founded Red Africa which houses The Future Awards Africa, Ynaija, and StateCraft Inc. In addition, this illustrious entrepreneur has founded the Lagos Business Transit and has chaired the Enough is Enough initiative. A Mandela Washington Fellow, Adebola Williams also boasts membership of the British Council Global Change maker and simultaneously sits on the board of Slum to School initiative. He is an uncommon embodiment of greatness.

More astonishingly, Debola Williams has made revolutionary and remarkable contributions to governance across Africa through his Political Communication Agency, StateCraft Inc. Owing to his media expertise and communication strategies that have worked wonders, he was described as ‘the man with the golden touch’ by the Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo having won the 2016 election through Demola’s campaign intiatives. This is not an exaggerated praise on the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the StateCraft Inc., Adebola Williams, who had also previously helped both President Goodluck Jonathan and President Muhammad Buhari won the 2011 re-election and the 2015 elections respectively.

According to Martin L. King Jr., life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'what are you doing for others'. In a painstaking effort at answering this great question, Adebola Williams, forms a part of the award-wining Slum-to-School, an initiative that goes out to pick teens and youths from the wanderings on the street to a better and educated life in a school. He is a humanitarian par excellence.

Perhaps, one recurring factor in the narratives of great men and leaders is their quality training, rich knowledge, and intrinsic motivation. A probe into the formative years of this young African pride bore witness to this fact. Debola Lagos, as he is fondly called, has a rich educational background and training and a brilliant track record in entrepreneurship, advocacy, and activism. He read journalism at the prestigious London School of Journalism. Though he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, it is was pathetic and shocking to the young Williams when, at nine, he watched his family’s wealth vanished into the thin air before his eyes. Surprisingly, the young Debola took charge of his life and, at fifteen, started working.

For ages, the popular saying, ‘Show me your friend, and I will tell you who you are’, has always been true and the case of Mr. Debola Williams is another proof. He wines and dines in the midst of equally great minds like his friend and business partner, Chude Jideonwo. Perez Tigidam of the Nerve has described this duo ‘as the Moses of the 21st century leading fellow youths out of a bleak socio-political and entrepreneurial past’. He (Debola) walks with Japheth Joshua Omojuwa, a prominent blogger, public speaker, socio-economic and political commentator, social media expert, and twitter warrior. And, he is a friend to Samson Itodo; one of Nigeria’s foremost youth think tanks on governance and citizens’ participation and the brain behind Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA).

With this brilliant track record in governance and advocacy, entrepreneurship, and humanitarianism, the entire team of Brain Builders International thinks it would not be over-ambitious to recommend this renowned, bright, smart, prudent, marvelous, inspiring, philanthropic, visionary, and exceptional Nigerian entrepreneur for a national award of recognition on contribution to nation building and human capital development. We believe that if something like merit exists in Nigeria of today, it should be conferred on exceptional minds like Adebola Williams.

Make Money With Smartphones

I’ll show you ways of making money online with your android phone as a Nigerian Student. Don’t worry, the options listed here have been verified and can be trusted.
Making money online is one thing that so many internet users want to do at one time of the other. Or who don’t want to make so extra cash? Many articles had been written in the past on how to make money online but they are mostly focused on the use of computer systems to access the internet and make money than the use of mobile devices. It is therefore important to discuss how to make money online using smartphones as the primary tool for online jobs. The internet is now been accessed more through the use of mobile devices than the regular computer system. According to a report released in the year 2014, about 60 percent of all internet connection is done over mobile devices. This is a reflection of the improved capabilities of the mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. Personally, I believe the emergence of Android and Apple IOS are contributing to the increased use of mobile devices over personal computers.
Making money online is not as easy as most people want it to be. So many internet users believe that with the correct secret, you can begin to earn top dollar with little or no hard work. I am sorry, but I am yet to have access to such secrets. The only secret I have been able to discover involves the hard work and dedication of the course. Once the mind is set to work hard, there are numerous ways whereby you can earn online using your mobile devices.

JAMB introduces new policies for 2017

Image result for jamb
The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made some major changes in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) for 2017.
More adjustments have however been made, and these are some of the things that will happen this year, that have never happened before:
1. No Awaiting Result
JAMB has announced that candidates who have not received their O’level results will not be able to apply or secure admission in higher institutions.
In a statement released on Tuesday, February 28, the examination body said it was part of its restructuring plan for 2017.
2. Fourth Choice
JAMB has also introduced a fourth choice of school option for candidates but would only be able to select only one government school while filling out their forms online.
3. No Choosing Of Public University
The following was also announced: The new registration platform will now be first choice, second choice, third choice and fourth choice and not most preferred, preferred etc as it was.
Candidates’ first choice can be a College, University, Innovative Enterprises Institutions or Polytechnic/Monotechnic. However, if a candidate makes a Public University his first choice, he will not have any public University to choose for 2nd, 3rd and 4th choice.
He will have on the remaining three choices, a College, a Polytechnic, Private University and IEI’S. However, candidates for the 2017 UTME can now select NCE (College) or ND (Polytechnic/ Monotechnic) as their 1st choice up to 3rd choice and the 4th IEI.
They can select the IEI (Innovative Enterprise Institution, ND) as their 1st choice up to the 4th choice, but can only pick a public university once.
4. JAMB  Form Sold Late
The organizers of the major examinations in the country, including JAMB met to avoid a clash in schedules and in order to have a harmonized timetable.
An agreement was reached at the national headquarters of the Board in Abuja on Tuesday, January 24, after a meeting with National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical Examination (NABTEB) to harmonize the timetable.
This is one reason the registration is yet to begin.
5. Mock UTME
While speaking the body also announced that plans were in place for a mock UTME and this might explain the delay in beginning the sales of the examination forms. So if you are preparing, start your preparations now, so you can do well in both the mock and the real deal.
6. No Scratch Card
Speaking on the issue of scratch card, the registrar explained that one reason for the delay was due to issues the board had with sale of scratch cards.
He said that whereas candidates used to buy scratch cards to access the forms online previously, they planned to cancel that since it had been abused thoroughly.
According to Daily Trust, he said: “What we want to do is for students to pay directly to government coffers and we are working out the process of doing so to avoid the type of abuse that it has been subjected to.
“So, we want to sell directly and to make sure that candidates pay into TSA account. We have cases of students saying their scratch cards got burnt, others saying their scratch cards were swallowed by snakes or lost in an accident.”

Nigerian Scientists works on Medicinal Rice

Nigerians are about to experience a positive change that will change the lives of everyone around. Some scientists at the University of Ilorin (Unilorin) and Afe Babalola University in Ado Ekiti are working on producing some medicinal rice.

The improved rice variety that will be produced has medicinal potentials that will help fight cancer. The rate at which cancer is claiming the lives of people in the society is alarming; although medical doctors do all they can to help patients battling with cancer, some of them lose their lives to the deadly disease.
As soon as people get to know they are battling cancer, they feel like their lives are over as managing the disease is expensive and it requires people going through series of tests and treatments if it has not gotten to the advanced stage.
Rice is considered to be one of the staple foods in Nigeria; it is being eaten more than every other food in most homes. Apart from the fact that it is easy to prepare, the food is available all year round. This could very well be the reason why the food was chosen by the scientist for this very purpose.
The bulletin passed at the University of Ilorin on Monday, February 21, revealed that the decision of the two universities to come together was as a result of the memorandum of understanding that was signed on February 2.
It was also discovered that the project will be cost intensive as the project is estimated to cost about N50 million for the four-year period it will be run. The National Research Fund of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TET-Fund) is expected to foot the bill of the project.
This project will improve the well-being of rice farmers and the overall health condition of consumers across the nation.
According to the bulletin, “The main research collaborators include Prof. Samuel Onasanya, Education Technology and Training Expert, University of Ilorin; Dr Michael Awolola, Industrial Chemist, University of Ilorin and Prof. Amos Onasanya, a Biochemist, Geneticist and Molecular Plant Pathologist.
Others are ABUAD dons like Prof. Olarotimi Ojo, a Chemist, and Dr Phillip Okiki, an Animal Health Expert, among others,’’
Prof Michael Ajisafe, the Vice-Chancellor of Afe Babalola University, reacted to this development by revealing that the memorandum of understanding with Unilorin was the 13th one the institution signed with bother universities.
He also stated his views about the project, ”We are happy to partner with Unilorin, which is the most peaceful university in the country and we are sure that based on its antecedents, the partnership will work.
The deputy vice-chancellor for research, technology and innovations at the University of Ilorin also said the research collaboration is a good concept as the nation stands to gain a lot from it in addition to the development of the nation’s educational system.

#ROC I am a Big Fan of Nigeria - Josh Egesi

Can we meet you?
My name is Josh Egesi, from a Family of five kids with a single parent, My Mom. I had my National Diploma  in General Art and industrial design from the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo State and a recent graduate of University of Benin in Fine Arts with painting major. I'm a creative artist, I do everything that has to do with Art, Graphic design, Fashion Illustration and Painting.
How did you began the journey?
It all begun at the Environmental art garden Abuja, in 2015 while I was an intern at the Garden for 6 months, I got an instructions from my boss to make something out of bottle caps. Then I realized I can actually make a portrait with this bottle caps as a result of my background in Design and recycling. I proposes the project to my project supervisor and she suggested we are gonna be making the portrait of Uniben's  Vice Chancellor with bottle caps. I started sourcing for my materials, traveled all the way to Abuja to get some bottle caps in a dump yard around Karimo, some Hausa guys gathered some kids that helped in sourcing for the materials and got about 12,000 bottle caps and I paid 20 for a dozen. Bringing the bottle caps over to benin was not easier, and my friends actually gave me some bottle caps as well. The process was difficult as it involves washing the caps, some of my friends also helped me in washing the caps as well. I got the board, glue and commenced the project and I started sticking the caps on the pre-planned project layout (Size & Structure) without a sketch. Firstly, I drew grid lines then I stopped to switch back to using my intuition.

What are your challenges?
Getting the required materials for my kind of art work was a bit difficult.

My inspiration?
I got my inspiration from the Environmental art garden in Abuja while I was on my internship and my love for recycling is also a plus.

Career Prospects?
I do fashion illustration, graphic designs, digital paintings, movie story boards. I'm restlessly creative an I am looking forward to making cool fashion pieces as well.

Advice for Young Artists.
I will advice you know what you want, and start developing yourself towards the attainment of your wants. You can predetermine your destination, but if you don't know what you want you may likely get lost. The best way to become a better artist is by practice, because Practice makes perfection. Explore other forms of media, don't just be glued to one part of art trends, think differently and do something new. I believe if everyone can do something different Nigeria would have been a better country. I remain a big fan of Nigeria, I love my country and will give it my very best to make Nigeria a better place. Think outside the box and find means of making Nigeria a better place, if not for your own sake but for the coming generations.

Let's keep recycling.
There are countless of goodies in it.

As received from Josh Egesi

Mark Zuckerberg published 6000 words Letter To Save the World

Image result for mark zuckerberg
Mark Zuckerberg has just released a 6000 word letter, being dubbed The Mark Manifesto.

In the letter Mark expresses his plans to make the world a better place by connecting everything in meaningful ways. He seeks to answer the question he lays out at the start: Are we building the world we all want?

He worries about the spread of fake news, and the tendency for people to read headlines and not the whole article.

“While we have more work to do on information diversity and misinformation, I am even more focused on the impact of sensationalism and polarization, and the idea of building common understanding,” he wrote.

Facebook will use more AI to achieve their goals including safety.

He also pushed back against the criticism of globalisation.

“Facebook stands for bringing us closer together and building a global community. When we began, this idea was not controversial. Every year, the world got more connected and this was seen as a positive trend. Yet now, across the world there are people left behind by globalization, and movements for withdrawing from global connection. There are questions about whether we can make a global community that works for everyone, and whether the path ahead is to connect more or reverse course.”

In the future, his focus (and of course Facebook's focus) will be around:

  * Building stronger communities, both online and offline.
  * Creating better tools for safety and emergency response, both online and offline.
  * Surfacing more diverse perspectives around news, and killing what he calls “sensationalism.”
  * Creating a more politically engaged society.
  * Creating better guidelines for what’s appropriate, and inappropriate, on Facebook.

Facebook has done more than anyone else in the world to connect more people than ever before, and it appears Zuckerberg wants to do more social good with the power he has. Additionally, this will only lead to more questions of whether Mark Zuckerberg has any political ambitions. There are also questions around whether any of this was driven by the Trump victory in the US election.

5 Genius Ways To Save Money This New Year

Image result for save money
Everyone promises themselves that this is the year their going to save money and become a responsible adult but it almost never works out that way.
In order to actually save money this year, you have to have a plan. A plan that translates and affects every part of your life. This way, you start your day with a budgeting mentality and slowly but surely it becomes a lifestyle.
Saving money is hard but if you follow these simple hacks, we promise you’ll have enough money for that bag you’ve been eyeing, a vacation or something more practical (fx rate is real) like your rent.

1) Envelope budgeting system

No one sends letters anymore but that doesn’t mean you cant still use envelopes. Here’s how it works. Simply label the envelopes according to spending categories (food, travel, rent etc) and put money aside for each. Don’t spend any more money when the money in each envelope is finished until the scheduled time to refill. This method helps you track where your money goes, so you can see how you spend and perhaps where you spend too much. So if the food money finishes – soak garri until the next month! Tough life.

2) Buy in Bulk

Buying in bulk is one of the oldest tricks in the budgeting book. When you buy in bulk, you can track exactly what you are buying for a period of time. Shopping every week or every other week can cause you to buy unnecessary things that you ideally wouldn’t need. Try writing your shopping list for 3 months. Pretend you’re going into hibernation and you won’t be able to come up for air not to talk of deodorant. Stock up and see how much you save. You’ll be surprised.

3) Join the packed lunch gang

You will never spend as much money as you do on food. Fact. Studies have shown that most people who spend money frivolously – do so, on food. Every time you order lunch in the office, you spend probably 50% more than you need to be on lunch. If you’re too busy during the week to make your lunch – use the weekends to meal prep and store them in the freezer. You’ll be surprised how much extra cash you’ll have.

4) Kill your expensive habits for cheaper ones

You like the feeling of grabbing a coffee from your local coffee shop. It helps you kick start your day and makes you feel like Carrie Bradshaw. News flash: you are not Carrie. So, stop pretending and get real. A tin of Nescafe coffee costs about N300 and lasts for over a month. Tip: Buy one of those cute reusable coffee cups and use that for your instant coffee. You’ll still feel like Carrie… You just won’t be broke.

5) Learn how to use your savings account

The truth is, most people don’t know how to use a savings account and treat it like a regular account. Your savings account shouldn’t even have an ATM card so you aren’t tempted to take from it. You should literally forget you have this account. Each month, a percentage of your cash should be direct debited into that account and thats it. You don’t touch it until you have reached the figure you have been saving towards. Also, saving accounts are those rainy day saviors.  You always want to make sure you’re covered, no matter what.

Win up to $800 in the Renewable Energy Challenge. Apply now!

Today nearly everyone, everywhere, every day, comes into contact with disposed recyclable materials. As the amount of urban waste being produced is growing faster than the rate of urbanization, Wecyclers (  tackles the waste challenge in the environment by using a fleet of low-cost cargo bicycles called Wecycles, to offer a convenient household collection of recyclable materials.

The Wecycle is a combination of a cart and a regular bicycle. The body of the cart is made up of strong metal structure to hold the weight of the recyclable materials.

In an effort to collect more recyclable waste, a Wecycle rider could go as far as overloading the Wecycle and this results in an additional pressure that often forces the chains to break off and the tube of tires to flatten.


The theme for this Wecyclers’ product design challenge is “THE UNILEVER-WECYCLERS RENEWABLE ENERGY CHALLENGE”.  This is a competition dedicated to challenging students to design solar-powered Wecycles that can commute more recyclable wastes and remains efficient without mechanical faults.

The outcome should use clear, scientific measures that can be easily translated for production and be as locally neutral as possible, especially in the context of the Nigerian roads.


The overall objective is to challenge young talent especially those in relevant disciplines like Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Environmental Studies and all other disciplines to come up with a cost-effective and renewable product designs to tackle recyclable waste collection in Nigeria.

Ensure that the designs are done on standard design software and model testing are carried out on the designs. These testing should show friction test, finite element analysis, and other engineering model testing.

Shortlisted entries will be invited to present and defend their designs.


A total of $800 will be shared among the top three designs with certificates for the awarded individuals or teams.

Three main prizes – Gold, Silver, and Bronze

  • Gold: $500
  • Silver: $200
  • Bronze: $100

The Gold design will get a two weeks internship with the WeCyclers team to fabricate the winning design.


Participant can be either an individual or a group of individuals

In the case that a team is participating, the maximum number of members in a team is 4.


- Originality (30%)
- Effectiveness in meeting design objective:

a. Design Efficiency (30%)
b. Application practicality (20%)
c. Clear Communication (20%)
