| Education / Re: 10 Things You Need To Know About The Prolonged First Semester In Unilorin by erenax: 5:32pm On Mar 29|
Barely some days ago, an article surfaced online, particularly on Nairaland about the prolonged semester which the writer termed as incompetence and an act of negligence on the part of the school administration. When I read the article, I was completely disappointed because the writer was sheerly inconclusive in his judgement and raised issues that are even not associated with the topic of his discussion.
The article, I expected should criticize the university management constructively and reveal the foul plays he felt were the reasons for this unusual prolong of a semester in the university. The article sounds really weird to the extent one would say the writer is only a saboteur who is not pleased with the smooth running of the calendar in the school or just an embryo blogger who is hungry of traffic.
Yes! I am a student in the university but I refused to be blindfolded by the inconclusive conclusions in the article. And after thorough research, I found 10 things which I think are strongly connected to the unusual holdup in the semester.
1. 7-month: the current semester which is the first semester is now unusually seven month old from September. The semester is normally supposed to have ended late January and or early February.
2. Change of leadership: The University just changed its leadership and the new vice chancellor, Prof Suleiman Abdulkareem Age was inaugurated on October 15, 2017. Of course, having a new leader may bring about introduction of new things into the systems during transition. This can also be associated with the delay in the semester activities.
3. School calendar design: in all its versions and revisions, the university usually designs an academic calendar for a current and a subsequent session. This implies that if for instances, as we are in 2017/2018 session now, the academic calendar for the session is the concluding of the previous session, the full activities of the current session and the beginning of the next session. This is to tell you that the university really has a distinct academic plan.
4. Admission delay: Unlike what happens where institutions are the ones that give admission to students; this is not the case again. JAMB now does that through their CAPS, Central Admission Processing Scheme. The admission was delayed to the extent that till January the university is still admitting new students through JAMB. Now, should the school now disregard the new students and take to its academic calendar? No! They put the new students and injured their calendar causing the extension of the calendar.
5. School fees extension: another thing that really led to this prolonged semester is also the leniency on the part of the students. Every time on class pages, the students union under the leadership of Mr Adebisi Ridwan always begged the university to extend the deadline times without number. Deadlines upon deadlines and extensions upon extensions to the extent that the payment which was supposed to end in December ended in February just because the school wanted to be lenient to the students. How was that the fault of the university?
6. Examination date extension: When the examination timetables for different faculties were released, the uproar of students about the inconveniences of students about them reached the school management through the union again. And because the school has an authority that listens and considers its students, it shifted it a little to make it convenient for students.
7. NASU strike: the non academic staff union of the university commenced an indefinite industrial action since 4th December 2018 and it just ended a week or two ago. During the period of the strike action, the academic staffs of the school were saddled with hectic responsibilities in order to cover up the absence of the non academic staff. This was also one of the reasons for the injured calendar.
8. JAMB exam: The provisional timetable of 100L and 200L students for exam would have started immediately but it had to be postponed because of JAMB exam that was scheduled to hold in the school. This also contributed to the injuries of the timetable.
9. Skill acquisition: This course which is usually offered in 300L first semester was redefined to be more practical oriented by asking the students to go for various training outside of their various courses of study. The vocational training was time-consuming and that was why the date its exam was also extended.
10. Miscellaneous: There are a good number of reasonable situations and scenarios that can actually lead to this type of problem even apart from the aforementioned ones.
Having read this, you will agree that there is no way all these will happen to an institution in a single semester and it won’t affect its calendar. The truth of the matter is there is no way you will stay outside and judge the inside fairly. If you don’t know a thing about something, it is better not to write anything about it. Unilorin still maintains the uninterrupted calendar it is always known for.
I thought unilorin don't do strike

Point of correction. No first class in pharmacy
| Education / Re: Adelakun Adenike, University Of Ibadan Best Graduating Pharmacy Student by erenax: 8:49pm On Mar 23|
Adelakun Adenike, in her early 20s, emerged as the best graduating student of the Faculty of Pharmacy University of Ibadan in the 2016/2017 academic session with 6.8 CGPA out of the maximum 7.0. In this interview with Adebisi Yusuff Adebayo she speaks about her tortuous journey to academic excellence.
Interviewer: Tell us about yourself
Adenike: The first of four children, a fashion designer in my spare time. I am from Osun state, Atakumosa West Local Government. I had my senior secondary school years at Oladipo Alayande, School of Science, Oke-Bola, Ibadan while my Junior Secondary School was at Queens School, Apata, Ibadan.
Interviewer: Why did you choose pharmacy?
Adenike: For me, it was simply my love for chemistry, so I searched for professions that fit in with this, pharmacy stood out for me. The plus to this was it had other areas in it with the aim of providing care. On a light note, I had always jokingly said as a kid that I wanted to discover a drug.
Interviewer: What were the things you found interesting about pharmacy?
Adenike: There is this awesome feeling when you discover a potential drug-drug interaction on a prescription, inappropriate or unnecessary medications. How we could do so much regardless of unfavourable circumstances, pharmacy school is a toughening ground. The blend of subjects from nuclear magnetic resonance to pharmacy laws to trichomes. It was hardcore but it literally gave the super power feeling. I usually tell myself ‘with all I have done in pharmacy school, I have the strength for the tasks ahead’. Pharmaceutics extemporaneous preparation labs were interesting, you could make an elegant preparation and still get zero because of a wrong label. Our lecturer always say ‘a wrong label mean a poison, and you just killed someone’ literarily. Though, the intricate details in pharmacy school stood out for me, the interesting stories in pharmacy school includes my classmates, the stalwarts, we have been through a lot and we had the laughs too.
Interviewer: is pharmacy really hard?
Adenike: Is pharmacy hard? Yes. Is pharmacy really hard? No. Pharmacy stretches you within your elastic limit, it seemed tough at first but we grew strong.
Interviewer: What CGPA did you graduate with and what were your GPs in each levels for the five years?
Adenike: I graduated with a CGPA of 6.8 out of the max. 7.0
100 level: 6.9/7.0
200 level: 6.8/7.0
300 level: 6.9/7.0
400 level: 6.8/7.0
Interviewer: Given the volume of work, what was your reading pattern like?
Adenike: There is no clear cut reading pattern. I have this sense of responsibility to know and so most times I would write notes alongside my lecture notes or slides, in addition to those ones, I utilized notes I got from Google and also videos on YouTube. Everything is literarily on the internet. The course determines how I read. I start reading early before the tests rush. These things are not cast in stones; the course determines the reading style. The utmost thing was I prayerfully read. It was not about the length of the reading but about the quality of what was read. Watching a video on a subject could reduce the time it takes to understand a course material, it might look stressful but it is worth it, it also widens my knowledge on the subject matter.
Interviewer: Having 6.8 CGPA couldn’t have come easy, how did you do it?
Adenike: I did not do it alone. God walked through the journey with me. You might think this is cliché but it is the truth. There was my place of hard work, consistency, prioritizing my schedules, taking the extra mile, talking with people who push you. God amplified all these and we all see the result now.
Interviewer: Were you in a relationship?
Interviewer: What advice do you have for pharmacy students?
Adenike: Choose to stay tough regardless of what life throws at you. Choose to love your profession, you can only make sacrifice for something you love. Checkout how pharmacy is practiced in other countries, I do that a lot, pharmacy is unique and dynamic. Talk to God about your daily pharmacy hurdles, they say a problem shared is a problem half solved, now imagine when you share the problem with God.
It is worthy of note that 14 other graduands also clinched first class namely:

| Religion / Re: Who Is Worshiping Idol Now?; Traditionalist Asks As He Shares These Photos by erenax: 8:22pm On Dec 05, 2017 |
I have a question to ask, any reasonable person to reply?
How did they get the image of Jesus or Mary. Was their camera during that time? Or did they sit down for an artiste to draw them? And how do you know whether the person in the images or sculptures looks exactly like them, including the baby Jesus in the sculpture? Because I am reasoning that those images and sculptures are just an ordinary human being drawn and moulded by an artist? How will you see an image or sculpture and identify it as Jesus or Mary?
