Covenant University: Dr. Oyedepo Tasks Graduating Students to Imbibe the Love of God

The Chancellor and Chairman, Board of Regents, Covenant University, Dr. David Oyedepo has charged the 12th graduating set of the University to imbibe the love of God if they desire to remain relevant and scale unimaginable heights in life.

 
Dr. Oyedepo gave the charge on Wednesday, July 19, 2017, at a Special Convocation Assembly held at the University Chapel to flag off activities of the 12th Convocation Ceremony of the University. The Chancellor, exhorting the audience at the packed chapel on the subject, “Platform for the Rise of Pathfinders, Pacesetters and Trailblazers”, advised the students to possess a heart for God and stay in love with Him, for their uniqueness in life to be established.

He told the graduating students to hold firm to their spiritual root and see it as a thing of value, because that is the threshold of their rising in life. According to him, “loving God is the fulfilment of all of God’s law, which in turn qualifies you for stardom. When you walk in the perfect love of God, you are on the launching pad to space; operating in the world of unlimited possibilities.”

Dr. Oyedepo told the audience that the proof of the love of God in their heart is validated by loving God’s words, His house, praying to see souls saved and promoting the advancement of His kingdom here on earth. “Every true lover is a natural giver including ministering to the poor and less privilege,” he added.

He advised the graduating students to eschew pride and arrogance and avoid discarding the Core Values of the University that they have been exposed to for the past four to five years. Also, he advised them against taking advantage of negative liberty as they go into the world of work and professionalism.

In his address, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor AAA. Atayero, appreciating God, noted that the occasion was a period of taking stock of what has taken place in the past four to five years in the lives of the students and the University as a whole.

Professor Atayero noted that the University, having come a long way towards engaging in competitive and robust research activities among the very best in the world as noted by the recent feats accomplished in certain research fields, was entering a new phase of identifying new fields of research interest and making notable marks there.

The outgoing Chairman, Covenant University Students’ Council, Mr. Toro-Obong Udoh, appreciated God for the grace upon the students’ body, and thanked the University Management, faculty and staff for their investment in the graduating students and for the opportunity to draw from the wealth of experience Covenant University has to offer the young ones.
He challenged his colleagues to reflect on the past years and use them as foundation stones to build great pillars that would strengthen their resolve to help build a better and greater nation that would become the envy of the world.

Basic 7 Tips To Having A Smooth International Trip

Basic 7 Tips To Having A Smooth International Trip  - My first International travel opportunity came in 2005, I was selected by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Nigeria to be one of two Nigerian representatives to the United Nations Pan African Youth Leadership Summit which held in Ifraine, Morocco. 


Basic 7 Tips To Having A Smooth International Trip
I was excited about the trip and made some mistakes (which should have been avoidable) if I had been well informed.

Armed with my Moroccan visa, I was informed I needed to pick up a French transit visa as I would be flying to Morocco via Paris, I was shocked! Why would I have to fly from Nigeria to Europe in order to connect to another part of the African continent? (I gained a piece of information that has bothered me about Regional transportation and trade in Africa). This is a story for another day!

Without any tangible explanation, the French embassy denied me a transit visa (a transit visa meant I won’t even leave the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris at all on any grounds). I placed a call to UNDP, they pulled a few strings and I was back in the embassy the next day, where an irritated visa officer didn’t have any option than issuing me a visa.

Visa now intact, I was informed by my contact at UNDP that due to the fact that I missed my flight the previous day, I would have to cough out a $100 bill at the airport to pay for a flight rescheduling fee. I had only few hours to the flight and all I had on me was $120. I got to the airport, paid the $100 and flew out of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport with a $20 bill in my pocket which I declared in the immigrations form on my way to the boarding gate.
The rest they say is history!

 Basic 7 Tips To Having A Smooth International Trip

That was 6 years ago. In the space of time between then and now, I have had 10 different opportunities to travel and attend international conferences, workshops and meetings in different parts of the world and I have gained a few valuable travel experiences that I would like to share, particularly for the benefit of would be first time travelers.
  1. Have a pen handy: To have a seamless international trip. It is important to have a pen handy. As simple and stupid this may sound, it will interest you to know that you’ll fill at least 2 or 3 immigration forms at the departure airport and at your point of arrival. In order to quickly breeze through immigration and not having to borrow pen from others, having your pen handy means you’ll fill your form in good time without disturbing other passengers
  2. Print your invitation letter and keep it in your hand luggage: If you have been invited to attend a conference, meeting, workshop or an exhibition, please print your invitation letter as you can be questioned by immigration officials, the police, or airport officials. If you don’t give a satisfactory answer or have any documents to back your claims, you might be delayed for several minutes and made to go through tough and embarrassing questions.
  3. Make sure you have a contact address and phone number: Most times, when invited for an international meeting, you get an email that says, a volunteer will be waiting for you at the airport with your name written on a placard. It is important that you request for a contact address (possibly the hotel or guest house you’ll be lodged in) and a phone contact so that you can reach someone in case there is a mix-up somewhere. Sometimes last year, I landed at the Airport in Johannesburg on my way to attend the Digital Natives with a cause? Workshop, I breezed through immigration, picked up my luggage, walked out to the arrival hall and scanned through the sea of heads and raised placards for my name or any sign that says Digital Natives, I didn’t find it. After pushing the trolley from one point to another a couple of times, I approached the bank to convert some US dollars to South African Rands and placed a call to the contact phone number I had with me. I was asked to stay at a certain point and within minutes the cab driver located me and I was saved a whole lot of trouble.
  4. Only travel with Dollars or Euros: Most local currencies are not easily converted in another country. Despite the fact that flying from Lagos, Nigeria to Accra, Ghana is a one hour flight, it is easy to change the American Dollar or Euros to Cedis at the Airport and almost impossible to change the Nigerian Naira. So before you leave your country, convert your local currency to an internationally acceptable currency preferably the US dollars and ensure you have a minimum of $100 with you so that you can deal with any exigencies or emergencies.
  5. When in Doubt ask questions: Don’t sit at an airport waiting for your flight to be called and when you don’t hear anything you continue to sit down endlessly. Stand up, walk to the information desk to ask questions about where your boarding gate is, when the flight is expected to leave and any other valuable information. In most international airports, screens are also placed in strategic places that display regular flight details including arrivals and departures.
  6. Always pack valuables in your hand luggage: Phone chargers, phones, laptops, i-pads, expensive jewelries and other valuable items should preferably be packed in your hand luggage. This is to avoid damage during handling and storage and to also avoid theft or your precious personal items. Also ensure that your hand-luggage is a small or medium sized bag. If you carry a large bag as a hand-luggage, there is every tendency that you’ll be asked to check the bag in if it can’t fit into the overhead compartment above your seat.
  7. Always travel with a pack of toiletries: Depending on the hotel you’ll be staying, several hotels do not provide toothpaste, toothbrush or body creams for guests in their rooms. If you arrive in a foreign country without these items, you might end up buying it from the hotel and this might costs you almost 5 times the normal price when you do your conversions to your local currency. So, travelling with a toiletries kit can be a life saver!
Now you have the 7 tips! It is not an exhaustive list and I am sure that a lot of frequent flyers can contribute more tips to this list. We’ll be glad to have your contributions. Bon Voyage!

FG Restores IRK, CRK as Separate Subjects in School’s Curriculum

The Federal Government, has directed the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) to make the Christian Religious Knowledge and the Islamic Religious Knowledge distinctive subjects in the basic education curriculum.

FG Restores IRK, CRK as Separate Subjects in School’s Curriculum

The government asked the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council, NERDC, the country’s education body to immediately reinstall the two subjects where they were before their grouping under the Civil Education.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, gave the directive at a meeting of Ministers of Education with education stakeholders from six geo-political zones and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Abuja on Thursday.

The meeting, which was also attended by the commissioners for education in the 36 states, focused on the strengthening of partnership in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Speaking through the Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Anwukah, Adamu said the directive to separate the subjects became imperative in view of the various complaints by Nigerians, especially the Christian Association of Nigeria.

He explained that the collapse of the two subjects was done by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration to reduce the number of subjects offered by pupils and students in schools.

The minister said: “There is this controversy over the merger of CRK and IRK in the school curriculum. There were complaints by parents that children were overloaded with so many subjects and the recommendation then was to merge one or two subjects. Unfortunately, water and oil were merged together and it is not working.

“So, to save ourselves the agony, the two subjects should be separated. We push that to the NERDC,”
Adamu, in his keynote address, reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to revamping the education sector, while appealing to the state governments, as well as relevant stakeholders, to support the Federal Government’s effort.

BSC, HND FG Stops Discrimination Between Degree Holders

With this new development, HND holders will be paid the same as BSC graduates at the entry point

For years, the distinction between holders of University degrees and Higher National Diploma (HND) has been a bone of contention.

BSC, HND FG Stops Discrimination Between Degree Holders

Now, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has stepped in to put an end to it.
Punch reports that the Federal Government has ensured that there is no difference in the salary at entry points between both degree holders in all the Para-military services.
At a meeting chaired by the Minister of Interior, Lt Gen. Abdulrahman  Dambazau, the board approved for all officers with HND to be upgraded to COMPASS 08, the salary grade level for BSC holders at the entry point.

The regularisation of the salaries was announced on July 13, 2017, by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Abubakar Magaji.
It read: “The board directed that all officers with HND to be upgraded to COMPASS 08, which is the salary grade level for holders of degree certificates at the entry point.
“While the nomenclature for the HND holders will start with the rank of Senior Inspector, the degree holders are with the rank of Assistant Superintendent II.”
The chairman of the committee, Sen Binta Garba, said: "Again what we are doing as a committee on the tertiary institution; we are trying to come out with a conference on legislative agenda on education. We are trying to look at all other summits on education, trying to look at policies of government on education and trying to see how we can have a balance."
Naij reports that the minister's statement also revealed that Buhari's administration is going to ensure that the degrees acquired at universities, polytechnics and colleges are all equally important and treated as such.
The government intends to make sure that the welfare of workers is definitely important. However, workers were advised to improve their performances.
