Crime / Re: Nigerian Prisons Service Changes Name To Nigerian Correctional Service by Symphony007: 7:56pm On Aug 14
The Nigerian government will not stop fooling themselves.

Change the name all you want but Nigerian prisons can never be called correctional facilities, because the squalid conditions don't correct or rehabilitate criminals to be better society people upon return. Instead, the conditions make them hardened and worse upon release than they came in.

That below is what a correctional facility is..

Education / Bright Atebou breaks Rivers State University 17 Years Mass Comm First Class Jinx by Symphony007: 5:53am On Jun 13
RSU Convocation: First Class Jinx In Mass Communication Broken

RSU Convocation: First Class Jinx In Mass Communication Broken
By Ken Asinobi

12 June 2019

The 31st Convocation of the Rivers State University (RSU), Nkpolu-Oroworukwo, Port Harcourt which held on Saturday at the Convocation Arena may have lived up to billing as hugely successful following a superlative fanfare and harvest of academic laurels.

The 31st Convocation of the Rivers State University (RSU), Nkpolu-Oroworukwo, Port Harcourt which held on Saturday at the Convocation Arena may have lived up to billing as hugely successful following a superlative fanfare and harvest of academic laurels.

At the last count, 3,924 graduands were awarded First Degrees, Postgraduate Diplomas, Masters and Doctorate degrees. The breakdown shows that 88 bagged PhD; 625 clinched Masters; 315 obtained Postgraduate Diploma while 2,896 acquired First Degrees.

Interestingly, the First Degree category produced 36 First Class, signposting a marked improvement from the 30th Convocation of the university on June 26, 2018 that produced 25 First Class degree holders.

Breakdown of the First Class haulers at last Saturday event showed that the Faculty of Engineering led the pack with a total of 12 followed by the Faculty of Science with 11 First Class holders. The Faculty of Law came third with 8 garnering First Class while Faculty of Environmental Sciences followed with 3 while Faculty of Education and that of Management Sciences each produced 1 First Class.

But the star shooter at the memorable event, ostensibly, was no other than Bright Atebou Jewel, a Mass Communication graduate who shattered the 17-year First-Class jinx in the Department of Mass Communication. He was not just etched his name as the first to bag First Class in the history of Mass Communication Department, he was also the only one in the Faculty of Management Sciences to clinch First Class in the 31st Convocation of the Faculty reputed with more Departments that any other in RSU.

Apparently overwhelmed by emotions, the Bonny Island, Rivers State-born Jewel struggled to hold back tears of joy as he received an award of excellence from the Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Blessing Didia during the ceremony. Amid ovation from the crowd, the classy, six-footer waved back at the crowd, bowing and smiling in the process.

Jewel told his story: “When I got admitted into the department five years ago and was told that none had made first class in the seventeen years history of the department, I made up my mind that I was going to break the jinx. I did not lose that vision despite my active participation in Students Union activities.

“I was able to balance my being a student politician, class leader and managing my academic demands. I was in my level 200 when I chaired a committee that successfully organized the very first Features Exhibition in the university”, he told journalists after the ceremony.

Asked how he was able to survive those lecturers who allegedly demand 'money-for-exams' or 'sorting' as condition to pass their papers, he responded with a toothy smile.

“The lecturers in my department that I know would not hinder you from getting your grades if you do well. I don't think I met any lecturer who, after you wrote your exams very well, made your points and your marks are correct; and they would deprive you of your marks because you didn't pay money.

“It's usually those students who don't do very well in their exams and who are poor in learning, that would go behind to look for lecturers who would remedy their situation. I think that's when sorting and whatever you call them comes in. But I tell you such things do not happen in my department. No lecturer ever denied me of my grades and the same goes for every other student I know of in my department”, he said.

From whom did he draw his inspiration? Jewel said his strongest influence came from the deep religious conviction instilled on him through his parents, and backed by a loving family.

“First of all, I come from a family of achievers where we always want to do our best. My father is 83 years old and his lifelong vision has always been to see all his children become graduates. I can tell you that as at today, all ten of us are graduates! Nine before me had graduated from the university.

“My inspiration was from my older siblings who inspite of our background of not having much still managed to go through education. We came out as graduates to make our father proud”, Jewel said, describing the RSU as an institution that is always doing its best to turn out 'dream makers'.

He paid special tribute to the Vice Chancellor of RSU, Prof. Blessing Didia and his lecturers whom he described as formidable, saying they represent some of the finest in the country. Jewel ran the list of lecturers to include Prof. Fred Amadi, Prof. Godwin B. Okon, Dr. Richard Amadi, Dr. Harcourt, Dr. Barighon Nsereka and other great lecturers in the Department of Mass Communication.

Where does he go from here?

“I intend to continue my education by running a Masters Degree and go on to practice some form of Journalism, Public Relations and Advertising. By God's grace, I wish to explore every facet of Mass Communication, in Broadcast and Electronic media, Book Publishing and the New Media.

“I want to explore the course because I really want to build on my foundation as a First Class and be an expert in Communication”, he enthused.

Politics / Re: Abinye Blessing Pepple Builds Fire Station In his Bonny Constituency (Photos) by Symphony007: 12:34pm On Apr 12
Waste of money, you have SPDC,LNG and Exxon Mobil fire service in Bonny that are doing practically nothing. The money should have been invested in education(building of labs, libraries etc) or health.
you believe those companies that built fire stations for their business will continue servicing bonny as it grows in leaps and bounds, including a road coming down the line. Go and tell the Rivers state government to shut down all fire stations In Port Harcourt because SPDC and other multinationals have fire stations in their RA and other outfits in Port Harcourt.
Politics / Re: Abinye Blessing Pepple Builds Fire Station In his Bonny Constituency (Photos) by Symphony007: 11:32am On Apr 12

This is not true. The companies are not Miles away.
Bonny Town is sand witched by SPDC's Bonny Terminal and the NLNG plant. Both companies have always responded to calls from Bonny and Finima Town.
The SPDC Gate is in fact inside Bonny town.
NLNG is located all the way in finima and even shell that is in bonny considers what it does in terms of fire service to bonny as a community's service. They will not forfeit an on going fire emergency within it's business to attend to the community, and you think bonny, as a steadily growing community will not unfortunately record more fire incidents? So the island should keep depending on companies that set up those facilities for their businesses in the first place. Bonny is growing and will grow further with the completion of the road. Why does Port Harcourt need fire station when shell RA is in there, plus other multinational companies?

Nigerians lacks political education. These people collect constituency allowances. Praising them make them do less of what they're elected to do

Very soon I will write on what we suppose to be enjoying as a citizens that these fools are sitting on. They just do little for some compound fools to acknowledged

If there is less fire incidence in bonny where he's representing then of what relevance is those fire project? When he can easily build ICT center to empower his constituency youths to be technologically advanced

you should know that this project was borne out of necessity. Bonny has recorded a number of fire incidents and they are especially gruesome because there is no existing fire station on the island. They depend on shell and other oil companies located miles from the main town. This project will save lives and property and you should commend it. Bonny already has the Bonny vocational center that caters for the ICT and job training needs of young people on the island. Thank you sir!

member in the Rivers state house of assembly representing Bonny island in the Assembly, Hon. Abinye Blessing pepple has built a fire station for his constituency, the first of it's kind by a lawmaker in the region.

It is worthy of note that fire outbreaks in Rural areas are very vicious because they tend to wreak more havoc due to the absence of fire fighting machinery, leaving the locals to fight fire with crude buckets and water.

Locals will no longer face this danger or suffer loss form fire, this is in addition to The jobs that will be created, this is a laudable move! Good things are happenings in Governor Nyesom wike's Rivers state despite what you hear on the media.

Governor Wike Replies to APC Threats: Rivers People will never support violence

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has told President Muhammadu Buhari that Rivers people will never support violence as being orchestrated by leaders of Rivers APC.

Speaking during an interactive session between President Muhammadu Buhari and traditional rulers of Rivers State in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, Governor Wike said leaders who have imported war songs will not succeed.

The Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi at the APC Presidential Campaign Rally, sang a war song in Igbo Language, threatening to unleash violence on Rivers State during the forthcoming elections.

"Rivers State does not believe in violence and we will not support any dance for violence.

"Those who sing other people's song for violence, they know what they achieve. They know what they gain", he said.

Governor Wike assured Nigerians that the evil plots to fuel violence by the APC will fail.

"I want to assure the President that Rivers State is a peaceful state . It will never be a violent state. I will not support violence and Rivers people will not support violence", he said.

In his address, Chairman of Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers, King Dandeson Douglas Jaja urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that security agencies act professionally during the forthcoming elections. He said that security agencies should not join the fray and complicate the issues of electoral violence.

The Rivers Traditional Rulers lamented the closure of the seaports in Rivers State which have negatively affected the economy of the area. They called for restructuring of the country so that all parts of the Federation will grow at their own pace and control their resources.

The Traditional Rulers called for free, fair and credible polls in Rivers State. They appealed to the President to check the tide of violence in the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari stated that law enforcement agencies would be asked to respect Nigerians and that elections will be free and fair.

The President said nobody will be allowed to intimidate people. He added that the snatching of ballot boxes will be discouraged.

Buhari said that his administration has achieved the three cardinal points of his 2015 campaign. He said that security, economy and fight against corruption have witnessed improvements.

You are implying that the field was “EMPTY” but because they wanted people on the field, they had to move them from the seat to the field. Any which way, EMPTYNESS dey the stadium.
stop reasoning like an idiot, for effective crowd control, people were limited to their Seats so VIP's can drive into the stadium but when they wanted to speak, they asked people to come close to the platforms.. That's standard procedure. Stop the distortion...

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has charged Nigerians to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) across the country for Nigeria to return to the days of performance and development.

Addressing thousands of supporters during the PDP Campaign Rally at Obio/Akpor Local Government Area on Saturday, Governor Wike said that it is only under the PDP that sustained development can take place.

He said: "PDP is not a party of excuses. It is a party founded on development . It is a party of performance. That is why Nigerians must return to the PDP".

The governor urged the people of Rivers State to vote massively for Atiku Abubakar for the revival of the seaports killed by the non-performing APC Federal Government in the state.

"Atiku Abubakar through quality economic policies will revive the Trans-Amadi Industrial Estate and the two seaports in Rivers State.

"Atiku Abubakar will create jobs and ensure that the government works for the good of all Nigerians", he said.

While acknowledging Obio/Akpor as the Local Government Area with the highest number of registered voters in the state, Governor Wike urged the people to cast 90percent of their votes for the PDP and her candidates.

Governor Wike advised PDP members to ensure that the party wins all the 359 polling units of the Local Government Area. He said that political patronage would be based on winning of polling units.

"You must deliver your polling unit. Victory of the polling unit is the ticket to political appointments. We don't want to hear any excuse that your polling unit result was snatched. You must protect the results ", he said.

The governor advised the people not to be deceived by INEC claims that they will organise credible polls. He said they should remain vigilant to protect their votes.

He said that the PDP remains sure of victory in Rivers State because his administration has satisfied the people.

Speaking further, Governor Wike said only those who have impacted positively on the state should contest elections or promote candidates. He said as a Minister he attracted development to the state. He wondered why the Minister of Transportation has failed Rivers People, despite his opportunities in the failed APC Federal Government.

Director General of Rivers State PDP Campaign Council, Ambassador Desmond Akawor said that all across Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, the projects of Governor Wike are a testament of his performance

Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah said that the rally is a mass affirmation of the Governor's acceptance by his people. He said that rally is more than a local government gathering.

He presented PDP Candidate for Rivers East Senatorial District, Senator George Sekibo, PDP Candidate for Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency, Kingsley Chinda, PDP Candidate for Obio/Akpor State Constituency 1, Martins Amaewhule and PDP Candidate for Obio/Akpor State Constituency 2, Mr Michael Chinda to the people and asked them to vote for them.

PDP Candidate for Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency, Kingsley Chinda said the governor has sold himself to Nigeria and Nigeria to the world. He said that the people are happy for the governor and his commitment to the development of the state.

He assured the people that all the legislators will represent the area effectively at the State and National Assembly.

Former President of the NBA, Chief Onueze Okocha lauded Governor Wike for his outstanding projects delivery and declared that he deserves re-election.

He said that the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area with the highest number of registered voters will all PDP candidates during the forthcoming general elections.

Former Attorney General of Rivers State, Mr Frank Ohwor said it is the desire of the people to re-elect Governor Wike for the continuation of his good works.

Commissioner of Health, Prof Chike Princewill said that the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area will use the elections to make a statement of their preference for Governor Wike and the PDP.

President General of Grassroots Development Initiative, Bright Amaewhule said that the rally is a rehearsal of the victory party after the Governor's re-election.

Chairman of PDP in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Chukwuemeka Aaron assured that the people vote for Governor Wike and defend their votes.

Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Mr Solomon Eke said in all parts of the Local Government Area, Governor Wike has left his imprints of projects and performance.

Ace Musician and Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty thrilled the crowd with his songs.

Education / Re: Mass Communication Degree To Be Phased Out As Professors Submit New Curricula by Symphony007: 6:57am On Feb 09
Reading comments on nairaland just makes you wonder, how many Nigerians bother to read a story beyond its headline, or is it comprehension issue?
most of them did not come to contribute reasonably to the discourse, they came for "likes".


Education / Re: Mass Communication Degree To Be Phased Out As Professors Submit New Curricula by Symphony007: 6:55am On Feb 09
I once said that I will never allow anyone I know to study 'Mass Communication' as a Degree. A roudy degree. They have the highest number of unemployable graduates in Nigeria.
Nothing pisses a recruiter than seeing a Mass Communication Degree on a Resume. Believe me. A recruiter once told me in confidence that he had preferred a Public Administrator to a Mass Communicator. No offence.

two things, either you are lying and you never met such a "recruiter" or the so called recruiter is ignorant and should be relieved of his or her duties, mass communication is a very robust course with lots of abilities infused in it's graduates, its only those who do not know their onion that will not deliver and will remain unemployed. Listen to yourself compare learning how to be a civil servant(public administration) to studying advertising, public relations, journalism, broadcasting,book publishing...did you even read the article at all?


Politics / "Remote Control": Buhari Reveals How APC Won Osun Election by Symphony007: 11:22am On Jan 27
Buhari reveals how APC won Osun governorship with ‘remote control’

President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, while appealing to traditional rulers in Osun State to support his reelection to enable his administration consolidate on its achievements, revealed that APC was able to win the state’s governorship election held months back with the aid of remove control.

Buhari, who failed to provide details of what he meant by remote control, said: “I know how much trouble we had in the last election here. I know by remote control through so many sources how we managed to maintain the party (APC) in power in this state.”

The President said this while interacting with the monarchs led by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan at the banquet hall of Osun State Government House.

Buhari, received on arrival along with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo by Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola and his entourage, said the APC has recorded gains in the areas of infrastructural hence the need for the people to return the administration to consolidate on the achievement its has made in the last three years.

He urged the traditional rulers to join hands with his government to tackle the menace of insecurity, assuring that his government was working towards providing social service programmes and soft loans to farmers to boost the agriculture sector of the economy. Oba Wahab Kayode Oyedotun, speaking on behalf of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi who arrived later, assured President Buhari of victory at the February 16 Presidential election.
