Sequel to the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ grievance on the failure of the federal government fulfil her 2009 agreement and 2013 memorandum of understanding(MoU), an indefinte strike has been assumed due to the nationwide referendum conducted on August 10,2017.
The result of the referendum conducted in University of Ibadan shows that majority of the staffs are in support of the indefinite strike. In a discussion with the Vice Chancellor, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka, about the looming strike, he said,
“Branches of ASUU Nationwide apparently conducted a referendum yesterday on some of their outstanding grievances with the Federal Government. I learnt that in UI, majority voted overwhelmingly for a comprehensive, total and indefinite strike. ASUU National EXCO will meet over the weekend to collate the ballots from various branches. We pray for a divine intervention as it seems that’s the only thing now that can still possibly prevent a complete shutdown of the various campuses as from next week. We have our fingers crossed”.
The academic calendar of the institution for the 2016/2017 session has also been affected in advance with the looming strike action. The Vice chancellor expressed his displeasure against the forces that seem unstoppable. He plaintively responded that students would bear the brunt if such happens by going back home.
“We don’t know as yet. I just want my boys and girls in Pharmacy to be allowed to complete their First Semester Exams. Obviously, if there is an indefinite strike, Students would bear the brunt by going back home while the already truncated calendar is thrown into a further state of disequilibrium. This hurts me personally but what can one do.”
Most students of the University of Ibadan are of the opinion that there shouldn’t be any strike action because of the effect on the school calendar.

LIFE is beautiful
As beautiful as diamond
Diamond, a treasure dug out of dirt
Dirt, a word attached to penury
Penury, a name for low life
Low life, an unpredictable situation
Situation, a dicey condition
Condition, dilemma of mission
Mission, package of determination
Determination, the road of actualization
Actualization, the birth of vision
Vision, the hope of commission
As priceless as diamond
Live, laugh, and love

Multi-talented Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe whose marriage is in crisis due to domestic violence debunked the “lies” told against her by her husband.
She took to her instagram page with the picture above to express her disappointment towards the things her husband said in the course of his own side of the story.
She called him a liar and pointed out several of his statement as fabricated lies against her personality.
“Dear Lanre Gentry, it breaks my heart that I have to do this but you have left with no choice…I had sleepless night because I couldn’t comprehend while someone I loved, someone with whom I have a child will be bent on destroying me… I just couldn’t comprehend”.
“I read with tears in my eyes all the lies you fabricated against me, lies you feel will justify your inhumane act; lies you feel will gain you public sympathy and lies calculated to bring my person to public opprobrium”.
She alleged him of claiming
1.That she is mentally unstable
2.That he caught her with different men
- That she neglected her responsibilities towards her parent
A man got her apartment
She said these are lies upon lies as she challenged her dear husband to back up his class with evidence.
She explained further to the general public that this is not the first time she had been beaten by her husband and told him to provide evidence else she will add another lawsuit to the one existing stating that her team has been the reason she kept quiet for so long.
I pray for quick recovery for our darling TV queen.
