203 Get First Class At Federal Agric University (Details)



The Federal University of Agriculture (FUNAAB) in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, has produced 203 First Class graduates.

It also produced 2,878 Second-Class Upper Division graduates among its 2013 and 2016 students.

The university produced 1,442 PhD, Masters and Post-graduate Diploma students within the period.

FUNAAB’s Acting Vice-Chancellor Prof. Ololade Enikuomehin addressed reporters yesterday ahead of the 23rd, 24th and 25th combined convocation ceremonies.

Ololade, who said FUNAAB remained committed to its mandate of teaching, research and extension in producing competent graduates, regretted that students’ population is overwhelming available hands required to train them.

The acting vice chancellor noted that the admission quota approved by National Universities Commission (NUC) of 3,500 should also be matched by provision of academic workers.

He urged the Federal Government and the appropriate ministry to give FUNAAB approval to recruit teachers for effective training.

On why there is inadequate food supply, despite the nation’s several agricultural institutions, Ololade said government policies, which are not properly situated on agriculture, should be blamed for the development.

He said: “The point to be made clear is this: the burden on the university is to do research and come out with outcomes. The extension to this is that we will publicise what we have done.

Kaduna State Teachers Begin 3 Day Fasting And Prayers Over State’s Plan To Sack 20,000



The Nigeria Union of Teachers, Zaria Local Government Area Branch, will on Tuesday begin three days of fasting and prayers to seek God’s intervention on the planned sack of 20,000 primary school teachers.

Kaduna State Government had conducted an examination for primary school teachers in the state and said 68 per cent of the teachers did not pass the primary four pupils’ exam at excellent level.

The NUT Chairman in Zaria Local Government Area, Malam Yahaya Abbas, said on Monday that the teachers were compelled to seek God’s intervention over the planned sack.

Abbas said, “Majority of our members here are Muslims and we do not have anywhere to lodge our complaint except to our creator.

“Therefore, we intend to start a three-day fasting on Oct. 17, in addition to prayers, to seek God’s intervention on the planned mass sack of our members whom government said did not pass its examination.

“There is no way for everybody to score “A” grade in an examination; that is 75 per cent, this is not what was agreed with the union representatives.

“The agreement was that the pass mark should be 60 per cent not 75 per cent. Again, the result of the examination is not yet out but the government said it will sack 20,000 teachers.”

He said that the government still owed some teachers salary arrears of between three months and 13 months, while some of them were being underpaid.

According to him, the primary schools across the state are understaffed, hence, the need for government to recruit more teachers instead of sacking the existing ones.

“I can assure you that there is one female teacher who teaches 200 pupils in a class due to the shortage of teaching staff.

“Again, sacking of experienced teachers and recruiting new ones is not the solution because anybody who bagged a National Certificate in Education or degree in the last 10 years must have been taught by these categories of teachers.
