KWASU Professors To Earn Higher Salaries – Abdul Rasheed Na'Allah

The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, made this known during a reception for the winner of the maiden edition of the award, Prof. Kazeem Gbolagade, held on Thursday at the institution’s main campus in Malete.
Announcing that the maximum level for professors under the salary scale is Level seven step 10, Na’Allah said that KWASU professors, who merited the PAA, could earn higher salaries, depending on the availability of funds.
The vice-chancellor described the PAA as a post-professional review process designed for keeping professors active and productive in the tripartite areas of teaching, research and community development.
He said that to qualify for the PAA, except in exceptional or accelerated circumstances, a full professor must have spent a minimum of three years as a member of the academic staff of the university.
Na’Allah also stated that there must not necessarily be one winner of the award, adding that applicants who meet the criteria could all become winners.
He said, “Henceforth, through the Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Research, KWASU will be holding this ceremony to recognize those that have met the criteria for the award.
We shall recognize them by giving them a plaque, celebrating them and by ensuring that when budget permits that they are rewarded financially by permanently increasing their salaries.
“In public universities, most of us use the Federal Government-ASUU agreed salary structure. If you are a full professor, you are in Seven Step 10, which is the highest you can go. But professors in KWASU do not have a limit as long as they are productive and they do great work.
“Professors must be productive. The goal of KWASU is to say, becoming a professor is actually the beginning of the kind of the contributions that you must make to enhance the achievements of this university. It is not the end of it. You have no other choice than to teach, do research and get grants and do community outreach.”

Nigerian Secondary Students Won US Science Competition


Four students of Whitesands Schools, Lekki have emerged winners of a category in the Conrad Foundation Spirit of Innovation Challenge.

The finals of the Spirit of Innovation Challenge held at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Florida, US.

The Smoke-Free category challenged students to seek solutions to the effects of reduced smoking on tobacco farmers, especially those in developing countries.

They were the only representatives from Nigeria and Africa in the finals. The students also received the KSCVC Good Citizen award at the competition.

The students were accompanied by Matthew Omotoso, junior school ICT teacher at Whitesands, and their trip was sponsored by Guaranty Trust Bank.

The Conrad Challenge is an international innovation competition comprised of five categories: Aerospace Aviation, Cyber Technology and Security, Energy and Environment, Health and Nutrition, and Smoke-Free World.

The competition challenges secondary school students to create a product, using principles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), that provides solution to a real-world problem such that people can pay for it.

Competitors are also required to conduct a research to determine their creation’s potential market impact and develop a full business plan.

Established in 2008, the Conrad Foundation honours the legacy of Apollo 12 astronaut, Charles “Pete” Conrad, and his four-decade passion for innovation and entrepreneurship.

UNICAL Vice Chancellor Advised Students Over Cultism

Prof Zana Akpagu, the current Vice Chancellor of University of Calabar at the last matriculation ceremony of the university. He said that appropriate sanctions would be meted out on students found belonging to nocturnal organizations and cult groups.
Akpagu gave the warning at the 40th matriculation ceremony of the institution, which involved over 9,200 students for the 2017/2018 academic session.
He noted that the occasion marked the official entry of every new student into the higher institution of learning since it was a statutory gathering to formally admit deserving and qualified candidates that had been offered admission into the institution.
He further said that the ceremony also signified the conclusion of the admission processes for the year, disclosing a total number of 9200 candidates were offered admission from a total number of 37, 278 candidates who applied to the University of Calabar.
Prof Akpagu informed the freshmen that they were not expected in any manner to socialize with any association that had been proscribed by the University such as the infamous “secret cults”, noting that the penalties misconducts were contained in the University Handbook.

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.

Ripe Foundation Set to Deliver Free Delivery Kits


Maternal mortality is said to be one of the highly recorded health issues for pregnant women in most rural areas across the world. A woman’s chance of dying from pregnancy and childbirth in Nigeria is 1 in 13. Although many of these deaths are preventable, the coverage and quality of health care services in Nigeria continue to fail women and children. As a result, Ripe foundation is set to engage in a nationwide distribution of Super Delivery Kits to rural areas in other to prevent and reduce the rate of maternal mortality, the first set of Delivery Kits will be available in few weeks. World Health Organization (WHO) research indicates that pre-assembled, clean delivery kits with instructions for use could be a vital component in the reduction of neonatal and maternal mortality and morbidity due to cord infection, tetanus, and puerperal sepsis. Ripe foundation also promises to recruit passionate Student Ambassadors to partner with them and become change makers in their respective communities.

Why Kwasu students should obey the school authority at all cost







"Kwasu has murdered sleep and can no longer slumber" -Dr Hakeem Ajonbadi

Could you remember how hard you've suffered to gain admission?

Could you recall how much you've paid as school fees?

How serious U were during first semester just to make it to this moment?

The night class, early morning lectures, missed breakfast its just so unquantifiable.

Do you know how many students were sent away last semester?
or your age mates that will become graduates soon?

Only if you can reason with me.
Why not calm down and watch Kwasu do wonders, everything should not go as planned its natural, even Adam never knew he will eat apple, likewise PMB that found a new job for quack referee (Whistle Blower).

I strongly believe the school can never stop you from writing exam you've paid for and they have the sole discretion to postpone the exam per wish. I'll implore the entire student community of Kwara State University, Malete to stay calm and stick to the management's decisions henceforth and remember that it is "Better to fail than get caught".

Greatest Kwasuite!!!
God Bless Kwasu.
God Bless Kwara.
God Bless Nigeria.

Breaking News: Saraki Commences Free JAMB Enrollment For Kwarans

Image may contain: 1 person, sitting and indoor
The Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has commenced the distribution of the annual free Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) forms for Kwarans. The Senate president, who has over the years, been distributing the UTME forms to Kwarans through his ABS Mandate Constituency Office located in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital has, this time around monetized the support for thousands of candidates from Kwara Central, Kwara South and Kwara North. The monetization is as a result of the new policy of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board which mandates every candidate to personally pay into Commercial Banks where that will be registered online.
We may recall that last week, the Constituency Office through its Director of Media and Communications, Hon. Kayode Omotose, announced the decision of the Senate President to give free JAMB forms to one thousand Kwara Central candidates. Meanwhile, as the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, he extended this humanitarian gesture to Kwara South and Kwara North respectively.
History has it that Saraki, as a leader who epitomizes human capacity development, has not only been giving out the JAMB forms but also organising coaching classes at different centres in Ilorin for Kwara Central, Aja-Ipo for Kwara South and Baruteen and Lafiaji for Kwara northerners.
According to the Director of Youth and Student Affairs of the constituency office, Alhaji Kale Ajanaku, the Senate President, as a leader who believes in quality education as the best tool towards a better future of Nigeria, facilitated Seventy (70) blocks of classrooms for Kwara Central Senatorial District with full furniture support, in which many of them have been completed whilst a few are near completion. He proceeded by disclosing that Sen. Saraki, as a leader with a digital mindset, has also begun the installation of computers and other ICT facilities in 8 Secondary Schools in his constituency in order to prepare Kwara State students for Computer Based Examinations right from basic schools.

8 Steps to Preparing Adequately for JAMB

Image result for jamb
I have never seen anyone perform outstandingly in JAMB or in any other thing worthwhile without putting together these three things apart from those that engage in examination malpractice which is something that is usually regretted in a thousand and one ways in the future.
Let us discuss eight straight-forward steps you can take to prepare yourself for JAMB. As easy to mention as these steps are, I must say that the simplicity ends there, in practice, they are actually difficult but are very practical steps that every outstanding student I’ve ever met practiced in their own way to overcome JAMB in their time.

Step 1: Ensure you know the JAMB score you need and decide on the score you want.

You must make sure you find out the average score you need in JAMB with your subject combination to nail your desired course in the institution you want.



This average score can be deduced from the minimum normal cut-off mark for JAMB that will qualify for post-UTME for that course and in the institution as well as the previous cut-off marks set by the institution that will qualify you for admission by merit. As you read this now, make your research and write that average score down. This will help you know the minimum mark you should work towards.
How to Prepare for JAMB
After you must have done that, the next thing is to decide on the score you want. The score you want should be different from what you need, actually it should be higher. The problem of many students is that they don’t even know the score they need talk less of the score they should want to work towards while preparing for JAMB.
These students after writing JAMB then begin to make this research after which they now start praying to God to give them that score. God does not bless those kinds of efforts. Some students still do not even find out the needed score or cut-off mark until their result is out. I understand that sometimes JAMB and various schools change their cut-off marks sometimes depending on the general performance of students but you can always make a safe assumption to work with from previous cut-off marks.
Setting a higher target is a principle in line with the saying that says “you should shoot for the stars, for you never know, you may land on the moon”. When you set a high and reasonable target – what I mean by reasonable is achievable; some students set targets of ‘398’ which is quite unreasonable – you’ll most likely get something very close to it, if not exactly.
A target above 300 is high enough to spur you to action. Once you have fixed your target score, distribute it to your four subjects according to your strengths. For instance:

My target score for JAMB: 315
Use of English: 75
Mathematics: 80
Physics: 85



Chemistry: 75
How to Prepare for JAMB

Step 2: Create a study plan and reading time table.

It is one thing to set a target and it’s another thing to map out a plan to implement and reach it. I will get ‘315’ in JAMB is easier said than done. A study plan is therefore an organized schedule that a student creates that outlines study time and learning goals. Creating a study plan and a reading time table not only helps you become more organized, but it holds you accountable for your own learning outcomes and the achievement of your goal or target.
Every student will develop a different study plan; there is no correct study plan for everyone. When creating your personalized study plan, you will need to do some self-evaluation of your current schedule and time management. Find days when you have fewer personal commitments when you can squeeze more study time – while doing this, remember that you need to put in as much time as you desire to see results).
Remember, each student studies differently, so the amount of time you need to study will differ from the time others devote to studying. Also, some students find that studying at night or at early hours of the morning is better for them than during the day. Work according to your system.
Determine why you are studying – which in this case is to reach a JAMB score target – and develop a plan that can help you achieve your goal. Take into consideration previous performances (that is if you have written JAMB before) and how you prepared in those occasions. You need to also anticipate subjects that will take more time to prepare for than the others.
Lastly, create a study plan that is reasonable. Although you must set aside enough time in your schedule dedicated to your studies, blocking off five hours with no break will set you up for failure. You can spend less time studying if you do it correctly. For a detailed look at how to make a personalized study plan, explore the step-by-step instructions below.



Three steps to create your study plan:

1. Create a time chart of your current activities – Creating a time chart will allow you to see how you spend your time from day to day. Take notes about your daily activities. Record things like when you wake up, sleep, do chores, work, go out and if you’re in school, how much time you spend in school daily.
Once you have done this, check for free time available for studying and it should be up to at least three hours especially as JAMB is fast approaching, if not you will need to re-organize your daily activities and create more time for studying.
2. Develop a schedule and reading time table – Now that you have determined available days and times for studying, the next thing is to develop a schedule. It is best to have a schedule written down so you won’t forget it. Seeing it written down can make it seem more important.
You need to know subjects that will require more time to study, especially if they are your weak points. Your schedule and reading time table will highly depend on the amount of time you have left. If you are reading this and you have maybe three months left, then maybe you will need to put in more than five hours daily for work. Please be sincere to yourself here and put in as much time as is necessary.
One hour a day is simply self-deceit and will lead you nowhere. Let your plan be very definite; for example, if you have 30 chapters of a textbook to study and 15 years of past questions to tackle and you need to finish it in a month, then you may need to read a chapter a day and solve 1 year of past questions every two days. Remember to have breaks in between long hours of study in order to prevent feeling overwhelmed.
3. Stick to your study plan – A study plan works best if it is followed on a consistent basis. Some days may not go according to plan but it should always be for reasons beyond your control. Otherwise, you need to be disciplined enough to remember that your future and the future of others depending on you or that will depend on you in the future are at stake.
So, stick to your plan. You can use incentives such as eating after you’ve been able to read for three hours without getting up from your chair. You may also need to deprive yourself of some sleep at night because you can easily regain lost sleep after JAMB.
Lastly, some students find it helpful to find a study partner. Studying with a friend also preparing for JAMB allows for collaboration and discussion. When creating your study plan, check with other friends to determine if you can coordinate study sessions. However, if you tend to socialize more than study when you are around others, stick to an independent study plan. If you do choose to study with a partner, choose someone with whom you are likely to stay on task.



Step 3: Start your reading now.

If you’re in SS 1 or 2 and you are reading this article now, then I must say that you are very fortunate. It is very advisable that you create a plan, even if it is thirty minutes daily for JAMB and start as soon as possible, if you do, you will be smiling when others are breaking their heads trying to prepare months to the exam.
If you are months away from the exam, it does not matter much because you still have a great chance; but you must begin now to study with a working plan as I have described in step two. If you have just few weeks left, then what you need to do is to start this very moment to focus on going through as many credible past questions as you can, you still have a good chance.

Step 4: Go through at least ten recent years of past questions to get patterns.

To study effectively, you need to know the patterns used by JAMB to set questions. First and foremost, we all know that JAMB questions are usually objective and the way you read for objective type questions is not the same way you read for theory or subjective type.
Even though it’s easier to prepare for objective than the others because you can always easily infer the answer from the given options, you still need to know the common patterns they use to set their questions. For instance, if for the past ten or so years, they have set more of questions involving calculation than theory in a subject like Physics or Chemistry, this will give you a clue as to where more of your focus should be.

Step 5: Use exam focus textbooks to study according to the syllabus.

How to Prepare for JAMB

This step is also very important to take note of because so many students study haphazardly. They give excuses such as: “JAMB syllabus is just too big, I’m sure they set everything”, but that’s a big lie. Every exam has a focus; there are always things the examiners expect and assume that if you know, then you must know some other things related to it. For instance, if you know how to cook stew, then you must at least know what tomatoes, pepper and other such ingredients are.



An examiner then just needs to ask you to describe how stew is cooked and he has asked a number of questions together in one. After all, it’s just fifty questions they set apart from in English. Using exam focus textbooks – there are a lot of good ones – study with your results from the research on the patterns they have used in past questions according to their syllabus. That is the rule in one sentence.

Step 6: Solve at least twenty years of past questions yourself at least twice.

Of course, this will require time but if you can do this after studying according their syllabus even more than twice, you will not regret it. Remember, as I have said earlier, your study plan all depends on how much time you have left to the examination day and how much time you are willing to give on each of those remaining days to adequate study. JAMB has been conducting this examination since the 1970s and they have surely run out of questions; all they can do is to keep rearranging past questions to make them look new.
The problem with a lot of candidates is that they study about five recent years of past questions and they are satisfied. You hold the key to success in your own hands. Use a credible JAMB Q & A for this, but do not depend solely on the answers given by the authors of the Q & A, still do your research using your textbooks on the questions you are not sure for yourself about.

Step 7: Practice at least one time test daily two weeks to the exam.

What I mean by a time test is a similar test to JAMB in which you will give yourself the amount of time JAMB usually gives or less if you want to work on your speed. At least two weeks to the exam – if possible more than that – begin practicing these time tests after which you will mark yourself or ask someone around to help you do that. This is where a credible and original Q & A will be helpful. This will help you work on speed before the real exam situation.
Pick a previous year and solve the past questions for that year for your four subject combination (or you can mix different years) according to a time limit similar to the three and half hours JAMB usually gives. It should be preferably years you have not gone through in step 6.
You should be disciplined enough not to look at the answers while solving them and if you will be tempted, maybe you should the past questions JAMB normally gives in soft copy that has not been solved. Of course, you should know that it is self-deceit to copy the already solved answers.

Step 8: Write the exam in your mind at least on three occasions before the exam.

How to Prepare for JAMB

Many people usually do not like this kind of steps especially if they are very practical people. But playing the scene of the exam in your mind, seeing yourself going into the exam center confident and well-prepared as well as seeing yourself coming out happy and satisfied with how well you answered the questions helps you develop confidence and deal with tension as the exams approach.
On each occasion you do this, the best way to is to find a quiet place, preferably a place you stay in a lying position without sleeping of, close your eyes and begin to act the whole experience the way you want it to happen on the exam day from entering the exam center to collecting the papers, writing the exams and leaving the center after the exams. Play it in your mind until you begin to feel and believe the success in reality. This is a universal principle called the Law of Attraction.

Additional Tips:

1. Prepare very adequately for the Use of English paper.

The Use of English paper is one paper that you can finish in the shortest possible time and that is not the only advantage. Another reason you should get very much ready for Use of English is that JAMB uses it to bring students down by setting tricky questions. Use of English is very simple and is an easy and fast place to bag good marks if you know what you are doing but you need to prepare adequately for it and master its rules. A good textbook for it is the New Oxford Secondary English Course.

2. Learn to read primarily to learn and acquire knowledge.

Reading just to pass an examination and get a good score is one of the greatest killers of the potential of students. Even though wanting to pass JAMB and score high so that you gain admission into the university is a good goal, it is not a good enough reason to read especially if you want to maximize your potential.
When you read with the primary aim of learning something new and acquiring new knowledge, you will discover that you will develop more interest in what you are reading and ‘interest’ is one of the things that strengthen the chemical links and bonds between the neural traces of that subject in your brain. Memories are just neural traces in the brain that get stronger and become easier to remember with application of interest, strong emotion, repetition and revision.

3. Do not leave God out of your planning and preparations.

I am adding this additional tip on the basis of my faith and I strongly believe that it is one of the keys to true success because only the manufacturer of a product knows the capabilities of that product and remains the best person to tell you how to make the best use of that product. God made your brain and memory and trusting in Him to give you the strength and wisdom to apply His time-tested principles for true and lasting success will help you maximize His potential in you.

Expel students with less than 0.5 CGPA-Buhari tells VCs

Students in federal universities who scored less than five gross point average (0.5GPA) at the end of every academic year, are to be ejected from campuses.
President Muhammadu Buhari who announced this at the convocation of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), also read a riot act to student agitators and the university staff collaborating with them.
President Muhammad Buhari

Buhari represented by education minister of state, Professor Anthony Anwuka, said government will no longer tolerate the disruption of academic activities by professional agitators on university campuses.
The President warned that students who are still bent on endless agitations and university staff who collaborate with them, leading to the disruption of academic activities, will be sanctioned in line with existing regulations.
“We must stop to continue housing adventurers, who have no business remaining in the universities beyond the time specified for their studies in the universities.”
“In that wise, it is being proposed that at the end of this academic year, any student with less than 0.5 CGPA should cease to be a student of the university and should be shown the way out.
“The universities must continue to have people who are serious in what they have come to do,If you have less than 0.5 in your CGPA, you are out. You are out for good so that the space will be left for those who have come to do serious business.”

#ROC Meet Dami Drey - A Rapper


BACKGROUND
My name is Olaiya damilola Sunday, but some people call me Macosa, and I'm popularly known as Dami Drey (elemosho). I hail from Kwara State and am from a good Christian family too, though things are not that okay financially but we keep on thanking Jehovah. I grew up in Ikotun Egbe until 2005 when we moved to Sango Ota out of my Landlord frustration.

WHY DID YOU CHOSE RAP?
Rap for me is a talent and calling at the same time. I used to listen lots of Olamide tracks and it really influenced my choice too. But back then I choose English rapping, but because the music market started evolving and I had to switch between Yoruba and Pidgin English, or more of slangs.

ANY CHALLENGES?
The first challenge I had has to do with promotion and finance, being an unsigned Upcoming Act I have to record and promote all of my works single handedly. Also, I will say the way DJs treat Artist isn't okay by me, likewise Organizers and the lack of Compensation not even a Table water, that has been a great blow to my passion cos hey are not encouraging, but I'm coping sha.

WHAT ARE YOUR INSPIRATIONS?
I see other rappers, the likes of Olamide, 2 Face, Oladips, Lil Wayne as my inspiration, not even weed, drugs or similar things. Because my friends used to ask me to take such for inspiration which I detest.


HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY AWARDS
Yes, I recently won Trendy Mates "Rookie of the Year" through the support of my Fans. I got nominated for 3 different award categories at my department (MACOSA). While, my very first stage performance in Kwasu was proudly supported by Gtcr8 where I emerged the best Rapper alongside Nizzy Dee.


HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN WALE TURNER DROPPED A COMMENT?
It was a moment of light up for me, I recently dropped a new track where I did a cover of Wale Turner's NO. at release I posted it on my Instagram and comments have been rolling in, including "Nice one Bro! I heard it keep it up!!" Although that's not the first time I have received a comment from a Celebrity, including Femi Adebayo, Oladips was just happy that they all noticed my striving.

You can DOWNLOAD ( NO, Wale Turner Cover) here.

YOUR ADVICE FOR OTHER ARTIST
Lemme not address others like I'm there already. But I will say this, "Just believe in yourself, push harder and never underrate anyone" We'll all gonna reach the top.
