You can request for a remark as you might be fortunate to get extra 0.5 in the writing.

If you decide to write IELTS again, I think in order to nail the writing section, you need to practice more. Write at least 5 essays and letters before the exam. Also, you need to manage your time very well. It is better to start with the essay as it attracts more marks than the letter. If you can manage your time very well, you will have enough time to read through your write-ups before submission.

Wish you all the best.

please how did you go about requesting for a remark? I'm in need of it too. Thanks

Travel / Re: Usa Visit Visa by myspnigeria: 9:28am On Mar 12, 2015
Hello gurus of this section Oghene, LadyGuinivere, Chloe7, LadyG, Fredoricko, tzetzefly, suxes2005, tee12345 and other gurus. Please I need your opinion on this quick question, a friend just got a visa to the USA. He said he was going to attend a seminar. However, he doesn't want to attend the seminar once he gets to the USA. I want to know, on his behalf, whether it is possible for him to boycott the seminar and just spend the few days of the seminar relaxing in the USA for a few days after which he plans to be back in Nigeria?

Also, can one be granted a visa when once has just the invitation to attend a seminar alone and plans to pay for the seminar and hotel accommodation on arrival at the seminar venue in the USA?

Thanks in advance for taking out time to offer your advise and opinions. God bless you and yours!

Health / Ebola: NNPC Shuts Down Clinic In Muri Okunola, V.I Lagos by myspnigeria: 6:02pm On Aug 08, 2014
s The Management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Friday announced the indefinite shutdown of its clinic in the Muri Okunola area of Victoria Island, Lagos, following a suspected case of Ebola virus on admission at the clinic. It was discovered that the patient visited the First Consultant Medical Centre during the period the first Ebola case was reported at that clinic. The Corporation in statement explained that the pre-emptive step was taken after the case was duly reported to the Federal Ministry of Health as well as officials of the Lagos State Ministry of Health. ``In the meantime, all contacts with this case are being traced and adequate precautionary measures instituted to contain the possible spread of the disease,’’ the Corporation stated. The medical team has assured that the patient is in stable condition. OHI ALEGBE Group General Manager Group Public Affairs Division NNPC, Abuja 08/09/14

Health / Revisiting The NMA Strike - The Candid Opinion Of A Uk-based Doctor by myspnigeria: 9:35am On Aug 08, 2014
I feel compelled to write on
this subject because of its
seriousness and the dearth of
objective analyses on our social
media. It is an emotive subject
for both NMA and JOHESU
members, and I can understand why punches
fly around, but both parties must rise above
petty and emotional considerations if we are to
find a way forward. For clarification purposes,
the NMA represents medical doctors whilst
JOHESU is a union of all health workers who are
not doctors.
The NMA has a list of 24 demands but I will limit
myself to the most contentious ones. At this
stage, it is probably best that I introduce myself.
I am medical doctor of Nigerian heritage
practising in the UK.
There is no contention – the medical doctor is
the head of the clinical team. He/she leads the
ward rounds, clinics, surgical operations,
multidisciplinary meetings and so on because
the ultimate and final responsibility for patient
care rests in his/her hands.
The headship of the hospital is a different
matter. This is an administrative office, which
needs not be occupied by a medical doctor. This
job is better in the hands of people who have
administrative or business management skills.
This is the case in countries like the UK, Canada
and the US, which heavily influence our health
system. Therefore, it is difficult to reason with
the NMA why this job should be the exclusive
right of medical doctors.
The doctor-patient ratio in Nigeria is dangerously
low. In my view, the roles of non-medical
professionals such as nurses, physiotherapists,
pharmacists etc need to expand to cope with
the demands on doctors. It is important that
this is done in a safe way by providing the
appropriate level of training for these
individuals. This is the case in countries such as
the UK, Canada and the US where consultant
nurses, pharmacists etc have existed for a few
decades now. I do not see any problem with
non-medical consultants as long as these
individuals are appropriately trained and can
practise both competently and safely within an
agreed framework. These professionals have
separate (but complimentary) job descriptions
and their roles are not designed to replace or
dispense with the services of the doctor. If this
arrangement enhances patient care, then where
is the problem with it? The NMA needs to
demonstrate to the public and to the
government how the creation of these non-
medical consultant positions will adversely affect
patient care, otherwise, its demands will be
perceived as obstructing the professional
development of JOHESU members, and I don’t
think this is helpful to anybody.
The types of hazard and the level to which
healthcare workers are exposed vary
considerably and depend on the type of job they
do. For instance, psychiatrists are hardly
exposed to body fluids and their risks for
contracting diseases like HIV and hepatitis are
much less than for a theatre scrub nurse. The
risk of physical assault by a patient is higher for
a psychiatrist than for a surgeon. And because
psychiatry nurses spend more time with
patients, their risks of assault are arguably
higher than those of consultant psychiatrists.
The people who work in radiology departments
such as radiologists, radiographers, nurses,
porters and so on have greater exposure to
radioactive materials than everyone else in the
The current health hazard allowance of N5,000
is unconscionable – it needs to increase.
However, I think it is imperative to get an
independent risk assessor for impartial advice.
I have read far too many emotional arguments
on these issues and very little of an objective
discourse. It is important that I draw your
attention to a few of these.
What has become obvious is the lack of
understanding of the concept of teamwork.
There is a pervasive notion among doctors that
the other healthcare workers are there to serve
them. JOHESU members think that doctors have
become too conceited for their own good and
are determined to put them in their “places”.
The most important person in the hospital is the
patient – it is not the doctor, nurse, pharmacist
or laboratory scientist or anyone else. Every
team member is important and must be
respected, including the people who do the least
clinical jobs like cleaning. I don’t imagine that
any hospital will remain open for longer than a
week if its cleaners went on strike and dirt was
allowed to accumulate to the point where it
constitutes a health risk.
I have heard so many anecdotal accounts of
nurses not joining doctors on ward rounds or
pharmacists altering prescriptions without first
discussing these with the prescribing doctors or
laboratory scientist slapping doctors; and these
accounts are being given as reasons why doctors
must continue to head hospitals. These are
disciplinary matters, which should be managed
according to existing procedures. These excuses
are emotional and should not be used to block
the professional development of others.
The other reason I have heard doctors give for
not wanting our non-medical colleagues to bear
the "consultant" title is the fear that patients will
confuse them or anybody else in a white-coat
for a doctor and give such people an excuse for
autonomous practice. This reason is not good
enough because this problem can be solved by
wearing names badges and/or colour coded
uniforms. Also health professionals should
introduce themselves to patients at the start of
consultations. But more significantly, this can be
an issue of regulation - any one found to be
(criminally) practising over and beyond their job
description, competence level or professional
registration becomes liable to disciplinary
Our health system suffers from poor regulation.
This is why anyone can open a chemist and dole
out antibiotics indiscriminately. It is the reason
doctors are scared that consultant pharmacists,
nurses and physiotherapists will steal their
patients. But it is also the reason why doctors
may recommend an operation to a patient
where none is necessary just so they can charge
more. This is a problem that is in urgent need of
attention. I hope that this something both NMA
& JOHESU will flag up in the near future.
Another recurrent theme in these debates is the
abuse of junior doctors by both medical and
non-medical staff, which appears to be
endemic. There is a consistent narrative of
junior doctors being asked to do other people’s
jobs such as collecting blood from blood banks,
taking samples to laboratories etc. In extreme
cases, these doctors are asked to undertake
non-clinical tasks by more senior doctors. This is
simply unacceptable! I think it is fair to place
the blame for this at the hands of consultants
who are supposed to be responsible for junior
doctors. But this in itself is not a good argument
for blocking JOHESU members from becoming
consultants in their specialties or for stopping
them from heading hospitals if they have the
right qualifications.
I am concerned that the NMA is losing public
sympathy. Increasingly, I hear people describe
doctors as selfish and heartless. This is very sad
and rather unfortunate. They say doctors do not
have any motivation to end the strike because
patients are forced to pay exorbitant fees to
them in their private hospitals. Those patients
who cannot afford these fees are left to suffer
or die. If the NMA has made any efforts to
change this public perception, then these do not
appear to have been effective.
The current strategy (i.e., recurrent strikes) is
not working. Over the last decade or two, the
NMA and non-medical health workers (more
recently represented by JOHESU) have taken
turns to go on strikes. Perhaps, it is time for
both parties to sit together, talk to each other
and resolve these contentious issues once and
for all. It’s pointless for the government to enter
into agreements with one party knowing fully
well that the other party will ask for a reversal
of those agreements.
I think the time has come to incorporate Ethics,
Teamwork and Communications into
undergraduate curricula. The various online
comments I have read from medical and non-
medical colleagues show that whilst many easily
mouth off "team work", a practical
understanding of what this means is lacking.
Disciplinary procedures are there for a reason.
They must be followed when necessary.
Although I practise abroad, I should point out
that this strike affects me too. My family and
friends all live in Nigeria. And who says I am not
planning to come home to practise?
Lastly, we must all be mindful of our own
mortality. Most of us will be ill someday. And
when this happens, the only thing that will
matter to us is to be looked after by caring and
competent health-workers regardless of their
individual specialisation. We can create that
environment if we forget our individual egos and
work as a team.

Health / Ebola High Risk Feared As TB Joshua Refuses To Cancel Convention by myspnigeria: 5:53pm On Aug 02, 2014

This news is just to inform you to be even more careful and not to scare anyone....Remember that if you are informed,you
are even more careful.. TB Joshua's yearly convention begins tomorrow Sunday August 3,2014 and amongst guests already in Lagos are thousands
who have trooped in from far and wide......Liberia! The Lagos State Ministry of health contacted the Man of God yesterday Friday August 1,2014 to ask that he cancels the
convention but he has told them it is too late to cancel as guests from far and wide have already arrived and the convention
is already set for take off on Sunday morning. Insiders say that ''There is panic amongst those who should know better and the Governor of Lagos State Babatunde Raji
Fashola is very upset about the TB Joshua convention not being cancelled. The Ministry of health considers the convention high risk because of the various Nationalities that will converge there with
most of them probably already infected and seeking cure.majority of the guests at the convention are members from TB
Joshua's Liberia branch''. No one is saying these Liberians are infected but I guess the Ministry of health is just trying to play safe in asking that the
convention be closed because of the emergence caused by the virus all over.

Politics / Osun 2014: Students Deny Endorsing Aregbesola by myspnigeria: 1:29am On Aug 02, 2014
The Coalition of Osun State Students’ Movement has denounced the endorsement of Governor Rauf Aregbesola for a second term by the National Association of Osun State Students and the Joint Campus Committee, saying they did not reflect the views of the students in the state. Leaders of the group, who addressed a press conference in Osogbo, said it was unfortunate that the NAOSS and the JCC, that had earlier organised solidarity protest in support of the striking lecturers of Osun State-owned tertiary institutions, would endorse the governor while the workers were still on strike. Speaking on behalf of the group at a news conference tagged, ‘No to unholy second term endorsement of Aregbesola,’ the President, Osun State Students’ Union, Mr. Omisakin Waheed, told journalists that the governor had destroyed the state’s education sector and should not be seen as enjoying the support of students in the state. He said, “We of the coalition of Osun State Students’ bodies condemn in strong terms the ‘sponsored’ solidarity rally carried out by the Joint Campus Committee, Osun State, few weeks ago in support of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola’s re-election bid and also the press statement issued by the leadership of the National Association of Osun State Students’ national secretariat to endorse the governor for a second term.” Also in a statement jointly signed by the Students’ Union President of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Bashir Saheed; Students’ Union President, Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, Adetunji Peter; Students’ Union President, Osun State College of Education, Ila-Orangun, Abiodun Saheed; and Coordinator, Coalition of Osun State Students’ Movement, Momodu Munir, the group said there was no justification for any group of students to support the governor’s second term bid.
