|Politics / A Former NYSC Director-general, Minister And Ambassador Just Departed by sunky644(m): 2:50am On Dec 26, 2014|
MAJOR- GENERAL SOLOMON K OMOJOKUN:
Major-General Solomon Kikiowo Omojokun was commissioned into the Nigeria Army on march 2, 1963 as a lieutenant. Born in Ilara- mokin, near Akure, in Ondo state, Major Genearl SK Omojokun is a science graduate, with specialisation in chemistry, physics and mathematics. He has held appointment at the Nigeria Armed Forces Resetllement Centre, Oshodi (january 1970), and at the Nigeria Defence Academy (October 1972) where he was a Princple Lecturer.
After his tenure at the helm of the NYSC in march 1979, Major- General Omojokun was appointed Director of Army Education at Army Headquarters. He was promoted Major- General and his hobby are music, reading and sports.
Then Colonel Solomon Omojokun became the director of the NYSC in August 1975. It was largely during the 4-year tenure of Colonel Omojokun that the NYSC witnessed its first major boon in intake. Amendment to the enabling decree in 1974 and 1975 had brought NCE and HND graduates along with graduates of foreign University into the scheme.. And the number of universities in the country increased from six in 1973 to 13 by 1979.
With the consequent increase in graduate entering the scheme, the NYSC also blossomed into a large parastatal, employing thousands of people in the 19 states of the federation. Colonel Omojokun’s leadership ensured that these rapid developments were fully accommodated, without disrupting the smooth running of what had become a very complex national programme. His tenure certainly falls under what has come to be know as the Goldern years of the NYSC.
He later became the Minister of Labour, Employment and Productivity
Later an Ambassador of Nigeria to Cuba
He also held various sensitive positions in the Nigerian Army and the Nigeria Defense Academy.
Mokins and Nigerians at large will forever be proud of you and your landmark achievements.
REST IN PEACE our gallant soldier, The General of our TIME, and our own PATRIARCH.

This your list is a confirmation that Nigerians don't give a damn about excellent research work and discoveries. I don't know what the selection criteria is that never made it cross your mind that Prof. Andrew Nok deserves to be on the list. If you don't know he won Alexander-Humboldt prize this year 2013 for discovering cure for Trypanosomiasis. Also, let me inform you that virtually all heroes who won this prize have gone ahead to win the Nobel prize as well. Please let's learn to celebrate our Academics. Thanks.

|Health / Re: Male Infertility!!! Share Your Experience/success Story. by sunky644(m): 6:37am On Nov 24, 2013|
It's like truly we men are egocentric. Can't believe this thread is in the third page and not more than two(2) men owned up to be in this condition. Yet I know the extent of male infertility out there, God will deliver we men.
To the topic, I first knew that I was a victim of this health issue about three years ago and I could trace the root cause to my laptop. For about two consecutive years, I was addicted to playing Pro Evolution Soccer on my laptop for at about 6-8hours daily and this is done with the laptop on my laps. When I got married and after about six months of active sex life with my partner with no positive results then we got to know something was wrong and alas! the problem was on my part (2million sperm cells in 1ml, 70% motility and a bit watery Fluid). I was placed on Tarrivid (ofloxacin) to take care of the bacteria and Proviron (sperm booster) to boost the count. The result gotten after this was (2.5million cells in 1ml, 80% motility and slightly watery Fluid). I knew the problem was not solved with this so we resolved to alternative medicine. I got three (first is honey type, second is some herb extracted with water and third is plantain peal extracted with alcohol which was very colloidal or gelatinous) specially prepared medicine from a Medical Doctor who went for a short course in Phytomedicine and Tradomedicine in China or India.
Two months after taking this my wife got pregnant and we now ve a very beautiful girl. Now we are preparing for the second conception and I know it will be a success. Most of the things earlier mentioned here is What we are told to eat following my findings from the work of some researchers. Like taking carrots, walnuts, moringa tea and use leaf to cook vegetable or egusi as well as seed as food seasoning, Trevor drink, honey and onion combo.
Like someone said, let's avoid subjecting the testicles to any form of heat cos the sperm cells are proteins and proteins get easily denatured by heat. Also avoid tight pants and never place ur laptop on ur laps or close to your testicles.
I am a Nutritionist by training and will soon start my PhD degree in same field with special interest in infertility by trying the use of some herbs that could help in boosting sperm count, used as antibacterial especially staph and also pile treatment (as it can be a predisposing factor for male infertility). Will try as much as possible to keep following this thread and I want to urge us to move closer to God and never stop praying (prayer that moves mountains) cos with him all things are possible. God will put smile on the faces of the women here looking up to God for the fruit of the womb (Amen).

A friend just told me that airtel has blocked the BIS plan on other OS apart from blackberry (android inclusive). This has rendered my Samsung galaxy almost practically useless cos I can only surf the net thru opera mini and no social networking enjoyment.
Please, if u re still enjoying urs then kindly send the code and how to go about it? Waiting pls.......

Infact, it's not even working with modem cos I put the sim in my modem and still it refused to connect despite acknowledging the network.
|Computers / Pleaas Help My Airtel BIS On Android Is F**king Up by sunky644(m): 2:00am On Sep 16, 2013|
I got an info from a cousin some time ago that I can use Airtel #1200 BIS subscription on my Samsung android phone. I actually tried it and it worked cos ve enjoyed it for close to three months now but recently after I bought the normal #1200 BIS, all I can do is open webpages thru opera mini. Now, all android applications (what's app, Facebook, eBay, aliexpress, yahoomail and messenger, Google mail and even android market etc) on my phone has refused to work. I can't open any and now left at mercy of just viewing my data waisting away. Once again the data is 1.024gigabyte converted from #1200 Airtel credit for one month.
Please help, as I really need to get this problem solved.

Hhhhhnnnn!!! Fellow Nairalanders, I wonder what you will say when Mimiko kick the bucket like Agagu cos very soon you all will get to know that Dr Olusegun Mimiko looted far more than Dr Olusegun Agagu we are castigating and crucifying even after death. Let them just continue to loot, one thing I am sure of is that the end will surely come some day just like this.
