University Professors Earns More Than My Monthly Salary.. Fayemi

Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has said that professors in Nigerian universities earn as much as he does, and that, in some cases, they earn more than him on a monthly basis, Punch Metro reports.
Fayemi said that as a governor, he earns N500,000 monthly salary, arguing that a professor sometimes earns more than that.
He also berated Nigerian academic for allegedly not taking advantage of certain opportunities which, he said, he was privy to.
The governor added that it was unnecessary for the Academic Staff Union of Universities to have embarked on its ongoing strike action.
Fayemi spoke with journalists on Monday in Paris at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s interactive session with Nigerians living in France, reports The Nation.
He said that ASUU and Nigerian tertiary institutions had benefited more under Buhari’s administration than at other times.
He said, “If you talk about tertiary education, ASUU is on strike; but you ask yourself, ‘Why is ASUU on strike?’
“ASUU claimed that it is on strike because it wants improvement in the fortunes of education in Nigeria and that government has not lived up to expectations.
“I make bold to say that no government has done as much as this government has done — not just for ASUU, but also for tertiary education in our country.
“Is it enough? Absolutely, it’s not going to be enough. We have to keep doing more.
“But, ask yourself, ‘What was the average wage in the university system before?’
“A university professor earns more than me as a governor. My salary as a governor is N500,000. Most university professors earn about the same amount, if not more.
“Yes, you may argue that there are other opportunities available, there are also other opportunities that are available that are not being taken advantage of by our academics.
“I can say a little bit about this because this is my terrain.
“I do not think that ASUU, on its own strength, can argue that government has not done well.
“There is hardly any institution in Nigeria today, including state universities, that has not had the benefit of the Federal Government intervention.
“It is either the government is building an auditorium or rehabilitating a laboratory or improving on students’ hostels in virtually all the universities as I speak to you.
“That’s what TETFUND does via their intervention funds.
“That, again, is not the complete solution,” he said

“Till I Will Die, I Can Never Forget The Day I Met Davido” – Mayorkun Says

DMW singer Mayorkun has mentioned that meeting Davido was a blessing to him and he does not think it will be quite easy for him to forget the day he met the African pop sensation.
Mayorkun, who met Davido after he uploaded a video of himself playing the piano to one of the latter’s songs on social media, told Sunday Scoop that it had been nothing but bliss since he came in contact with the self-acclaimed Omo Baba Olowo.

He said:

“I will continue to remember the day I met Davido for good. He has really been a blessing to me and I will always appreciate him. He is a very good person because he didn’t know me from Adam before offering me a deal with his label.
Even when I tell people how our paths crossed, they don’t believe. He took me as a brother from day one and he has been very instrumental to the growth of my career.”
On the advice his mother gave him at the outset of his career.

Mayorkun said:

“She just told me to always remember the son of who I am and to stay true to myself. She warned me not to live a fake life but to be focused on my career.
As someone who has been in the entertainment industry for a while, her advice is very valuable to me and I make sure to follow it. I am very close to my mother and I don’t do anything without her.”
Speaking on what inspires him as an artiste.

Mayorkun said:

“I am largely inspired by the things I see around me. I like to sing about things that people can relate with; I get material from the things that happen around me.”

Atiku is Nigeria’s next president – Ike Ekweremadu

The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, after the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the coming 2019 presidential election, stated that he is Nigeria’s next president.
Ekweremadu also congratulated the other aspirants and the PDP on the primary which he described as “crucial and rancor-free.”

He noted that the process was more important than everything else as all the aspirants were qualified to lead the nation.
Reacting to the outcome of the elective convention, which produced Abubakar as the candidate of the PDP for the 2019 presidential election, the senator, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu, said the ex-Vice-President was the next president of Nigeria.
Ekweremadu said:
“I join our teeming party faithful and supporters to congratulate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the incoming President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, by God’s grace, on his nomination as the standard-bearer of the PDP in the 2019 presidential election.
“This is a watershed and a momentous occasion for the PDP and indeed the nation. More important in the race was the transparent, free, fair, credible, and peaceful process. I commend the party leadership and the Convention Planning Committee for giving us one of the best primary elections in Nigeria’s history.
“Our party has, by this, demonstrated the full revival of internal democracy and total rebranding for the best democratic ethos. I commend the aspirants for the maturity, decorum, friendship, and mutual respect that characterised the jostle for the presidential ticket.  I urge them and the party faithful to continue to work together for the party’s victory in the 2019 general elections.”
According to the Deputy Senate President, the mission to rescue Nigeria towers above individual interest and it is one that the party cannot afford to fail Nigerians.
The lawmaker noted that recent elections, “despite the temporary setback occasioned by apparent irregularities suffered by the PDP,” were clear pointers that Nigerians had already queued behind the PDP to restore the nation on the part of true democracy and progress.

Native doctor rejects runs girl brought for sacrifice, says she’s already been used(details)

A Twitter user  identified as @iam_zamahni took to the platform to narrate how her neighbour’s daughter who is also a runs girl, was rejected by a ritualist (native doctor) after she was brought in as a sacrifice by ritual killers.
Native doctor rejects runs girl brought for sacrifice, says she’s already useless lailasnews 1
According to the Twitter user, the incident occurred shortly after the runs girl traveled to Abuja to meet a new client. Read the story below;
My Neigbours daughter that was kidnapped on the 28th of Sept just returned home this morning crying. She was kidnapped to be used for Rituals but the Native Doctor said a superior power from ijebu already used her soul for Rituals and she can’t be used again,cos she’s USELESS
According to her; she travelled to Abuja to meet a friend she has known for sometime. On getting there the man was richer than she expected but she suspected something was wrong cos he can’t be so rich from selling only perfume oils.
They spent the night together and she was only getting credit alerts but he didn’t want to have secx with her cos he was saving her for Rituals. The 3rd day came he told her he will be travelling that she can stay in the hotel till anytime she wants to travel home.
According to her; that night by 2am someone came to wake her up, she said she can’t remember who,but she followed the person,only to see herself in a shrine and the only person she could recognise was her friend. (The guy she went to see in Abuja) and there were other girls too
So she was furious,trying to ask the people how she got there bt nobody was answering her. She said she watch them doing their enchantment and she also saw other girls were coming in, ( probably runs Girls) and they were all together,the ones they took out never came back
Then someone came to where they were and asked her to follow him she followed him again, on getting to the shrine they told her so sit inside a calabash, she did but nothing happened. Then the Native Doctor tied a leaf around her neck and Screamed!!! Saying they brought a corpse
He then called her friend (the guy she went to see in Abuja) in anger the Native Doctor slapped him and asked him if he’s not serious with performing the rituals and that he has 48hrs to provide someone or he’ll run mad. That she (my neighbours daughter) has been used previously
She has been used previously and that she’s not worth anything, and anyone who comes incontact with her sexually also carries the same curse, and that’s how it’ll be till till eternity.He then called some people to throw her away. They came and carried her away. According to her
They dropped her in the middle of the road, with the intention that a trailer or truck will drive by and crush her to death.But luckily for her the driver saw her in the middle of the road naked n stopped.He took off his shirt nd covered her, moved her from the road n drove off
According to her she was just by the road seeing people passing by but she couldn’t say a word, they probably thought she was MAD. So a relative from same village who knows her father saw her there and called her dad, that he saw her daughter sitting by the road looking Mad
And the Dad was shocked cos they’ve been trying to reach her on phone and her room mates in school don’t know her whereabout. They found her somewhere in ogun state and she came home this morning.
Her parents are making preparations to take her back to ijebu to trace where and who used her for Rituals. Imagine having a beautiful face and nothing good is coming your way cos nobody is seeing you, someone made you a walking corpse cos you’re desperately in love with money.
I used to think it’s a movie till it happened to my Neighbour. This is not a Story. It’s real; the World is Wicked. Be careful outhere please

The Walking Dead Recap
Lauren Cohan as Maggie Rhee on ‘The Walking Dead.’ Jackson Lee Davis/AMC
When last season’s all-out war turned out to be more of an all-out bore (am I right, guys?), fans of The Walking Dead were left dubious about the show’s future as a drama worth watching. But that was before AMC threw a massive curve at its audience, in the form of a shocking announcement: the departure of the series’ original leading man. After eight years, more than 100 episodes, and fifteen dozen different levels of post-apocalyptic beardedness, Andrew Lincoln‘s ninth season on the show will be his last — and the Sunday, October 7, premiere made it clear that they intend to give him a heck of a send-off. Here’s everything that went down on the episode, titled “A New Beginning.”
Although Maggie (Lauren Cohan) seemed on the verge of mutiny in the final moments of season eight, she got her anger at Rick under control. The Walking Dead jumped ahead about a year in this new season to show all three communities (the Hilltop, the Sanctuary, and Alexandria) living more or less in harmony. Maggie, now a mom, remained the Hilltop’s leader after a public election — and despite some agricultural struggles and a dash of pro-Negan graffiti at the Sanctuary, everything seemed copacetic. The survivors were thriving, the future was bright, and Judith Grimes was finally displaying signs of age-appropriate verbal development! And that wasn’t even the best part, because …

The rumors are true! After some awfully titillating teaser images of Carol (Melissa McBride) and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) in what looked like a romantic embrace, the premiere confirmed that these two are involved. A trip to Washington, D.C. to retrieve vintage farming equipment and heirloom seeds nearly went sour when a glass floor shattered beneath Ezekiel’s feet, leading him to fall right into a pack of hungry walkers. Fortunately, he was harnessed onto a rope that allowed his friends to pull him out — at which point, a relieved Carol laid a big smooch right on the lips of her monarch.
Don’t worry, though: the tough, fierce Carol you know and love hasn’t disappeared. When Ezekiel proposed to her later in the episode, she turned him down flat and dissed his taste in engagement rings to boot: “Put that thing away! It’ll snag on everything!”
The Walking Dead Recap

Although the trip to D.C. was a success, the road home was rough — and for one member of the gang, deadly. After discovering that storms had washed out the bridge to Alexandria and left the road extremely muddy, the group was beset by a herd of walkers. Not wanting his horse to meet the fate of literally every other horse on The Walking Dead (remember Buttons?), a kid named Ken ran back to free her and ended up both kicked by the horse and bitten by zombies for his efforts. Ken promptly died from internal injuries, and Maggie was left with the unhappy job of giving his parents the news. Clearly, this was the fault of the jerk horse above all else, but the parents blamed Maggie — and one treasonous lurker saw his chance.
So, remember Gregory (Xander Berkeley), the man who spent two entire seasons messing things up for the survivors with an endless series of ham-handed attempts at manipulation? He was still living at the Hilltop, still seething over his loss to Maggie in the community’s election and still nursing the bizarre delusion that he could be an effective leader — if only the current one were, uh, gone for some reason. That night, after Ken’s funeral, Gregory lured Maggie to the graveyard in the hopes that Ken’s grieving dad Earl — pumped full of bourbon and murderous bad feelings by the resentful ex-leader — would end her life.
Fortunately Maggie fought Earl off and went straight to confront the treasonous snake – “You can’t even murder someone right!” she sneered – easily disarming him when he attempted to stab her himself. And because frontier justice reigns in a world overrun by zombies, this was the end for Gregory. His brutal hanging was the last scene in the episode — and our first inkling of just how far Maggie will go to keep her house in order.
