The congress which was presided over by the Chairman of UI chapter of ASUU, Dr. Olusegun Ajiboye, stressed the need for God to help Nigerian leaders to do the needful and document the resolutions of their meeting with the President.
The congress which expressed optimism that the strike will end soon listed three prayer points to include: “the need for God to touch the heart of the Federal government to be committed towards funding public education and develop the nation.
They also asked God to protect the leadership of ASUU as they travel and that the purpose of the strike is actualized by placing universities in the league of world class institutions.”
Speaking after the congress, Dr. Ajiboye said the union does not need newspaper confirmation from the president that N200billion has been deposited with the Central Bank of Nigeria.
He said it was impossible for anybody who has not opened an account with a bank to request the bank for a balance.
Him come still beg F.G, say make them take the future of Naija serious. Him come still talk say nah F.G dey keep students for house o.
The ASUU chairman talk say if F.G talk well, ASUU fit call off the strike in the next 24 hours.
The hostile reaction from the thousands-strong unruly crowd erupted as Zuma prepared to address the high-profile ceremony in Johannesburg’s Soccer City stadium bringing together leaders from around 90 countries.
Zuma was booed when he first entered the crowded stadium, and again when he prepared to speak. In contrast, U.S. President Barack Obama received a roaring ovation, and Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe and U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon were also cheered.
Some in the crowd accompanied the boos for Zuma with thumbs-down gestures and rotating hand movements, the sign for a substitution in a soccer match.
“Mandela had a vision, Mandela lived that vision. But what Zuma speaks, he doesn’t live,” said Funeka Gingcara-Sithole, 31, reflecting the mood of the Zuma critics in the stadium.
“He should do the honorable thing and resign,” she said.
ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu called the booing a surprise, but played down the incident as a “little blot”.
“It came as a bolt to all of us,” he told eNCA television. “We were quite surprised.”
Zuma and senior ANC officials remained stony faced during the hostile reaction and organizers at one point used a choir to try to drown it out.
Na this kind thing na hin them dey call yawa dey. Chai, South African people prepare well for their presido come choose beta time to take fall him hand for front of the world. I sure say Zuma for don piss for trouser.
The Reverend Father is said to be in charge of a parish in the Dikenafai environs of the Ideato South LGA of the state. He is said to have threatened members of his parish and endangered their lives with three unlicensed guns believed to be in his possession, without approval.
As a result of the Reverend Father's action, many are now afraid of going to the church.
Crime Guard reliably gathered that the guns which include one pump action riffle, one double-barrelled gun and a locally-made pistol allegedly belonging to the priest were recovered from his official residence by operatives of Special Armed Robbery Squad, SARS, Imo State Police Command acting on a tip off from some concerned parishioners.
Described as a very controversial priest, the reverend father was arrested and detained briefly but granted bail by the police following the intervention of some influential religious and political leaders in the state.
WeLl, police don start investigation make them know how the father manage get the guns. And police people talk say e go get as e go be, them go carry the father go court.
My people , Jesus don suffer o! Nothing wey them no dey do for church now eh. No mata wetin d church members do, father no suppose carry gun abi wetin them do pass wetin Jews do Jesus?

The commemorative event, which is scheduled to hold on December 18, 2013, at The Oceanview Restaurant, Victoria Island, Lagos, promises to be a very befitting and groundbreaking honour in memory of the extraordinary life and unselfish contributions of one of the greatest beacons of hope, inspiration and freedom to ever walk the surface of this earth.
According to Funmi Victor-Okigbo, Chief Executive Officer, No Surprises Events, "We'll ensure that the event is orchestrated and executed to perfection according to world-class standards."
For Mo Abudu, Chairman and CEO of EbonyLife TV, "It's one of the least of things we can do as Nigerians, Africans and Global Black citizens of the world to honour a unique, caring and very humble global character."
She continues, "Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela lives on as a beacon of hope and a true icon of inspiration; a man of extraordinary vision who has left such a great legacy of humanity that Africans and the rest of the world must strive to aspire to. So we are indeed very proud to put this together. It's a free concert for the expensive price of liberty paid for by the selfless Madiba. We made a call to the industry and we got really tremendous response. For all our music stars and partners, we cannot thank you all enough for your sacrifice, kindness and generosity, which themselves typify the spirit of 'Ubuntu', which is South African for humanity. God bless you all."

Drogba, who plays for Turkish giants Galatasaray, removed his club shirt after a match against SB Elazigspor on Friday to reveal a T-shirt that read ''Thank You Madiba''.
His teammate Eboue also honoured the South African anti-apartheid hero, who died aged 95 on Thursday, with a T-shirt that said ''Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela''.
The Turkish federation talk say the two players go face disciplinary action as them break their rule which talk say no wearing of political slogans and messages on T-shirts.
But wetin dey political say u tell person "Rest in peace". This nah racism o, even for even them do one minute silence for Mandela, abi Turkish F.A no know say nah African Hero die?
They said they were only waiting for the sack letters the Federal Government threatened to give them if they did not return to work.
In many of the universities,only administrative offices opened for business while the lecture rooms were empty. Particularly, lecturers' offices remained shut.
Among some of the universities were the University of Lagos, University of Ibadan, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, University of Calabar, Nnamdi Azikwe University, Awka, and the University of Uyo.
Others are Obafemi Awolwo University, Ile-Ife, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta and the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye.
The Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, had urged the striking lecturers to return to work or on before December 9 or risk being sacked.
But the leadership of ASUU had remained unfazed by the FG's directive and threat. They accused the government of insincerity in the resolution of the face-off.
At the NAU, Awka on Monday, though some of the lecturers were on campus, they did not teach. The institution's Faculty of Social Sciences, for instance, had its classrooms and laboratories shut.
The hostels were opened but students had yet to return to the campus.
At UI, only a few lecturers were on the campus. They neither taught nor signed the attendance register.
The institution's chapter of ASUU earlier in the day had sent a message to its members, urging them to be calm and resolute in their demands.
The National Treasurer of ASUU, Dr. Ademola Aremu, come talk say if ASUU go melow by this time, e go be say all the strike wey them do go be in vain. Him talk say nah now the strike just begin make everybody hold him trouser well well.

However, with a statement later issued by the AAUA ASUU's Chairman, Dr. Meruyi Mekusi, insisting that they will not call off the strike until their national body orders them to do so might have forced the management to recruit new lecturers.
Relatively, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Femi Mimiko, has charged the newly recruited lecturers to key into the work ethics of the Institution and always observe the values of the teaching profession.
To come make matters worse, them even do orientation for the lecturers, tell them how them g do their come warn them say if them do anyhow, them go see anyhow as AAUA n dey take rubbish. People we show the orientation nah the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. Rotimi Ajayi, Prof. Francis Oyebade and Prof. Niyi Akinnaso.
Futo don sack, AAUA don employ new lecturers, which school go be next.
until the day Jesus came to open it. What are the doors you want to enter but lack the relevant keys to do so? The Lord will give you such keys today. There are those who have never really tasted open doors since they were born; they have never experienced any breakthrough at any time and nothing has ever come easy for them. If you are in this category, the Lord will make a difference in your situation. That good thing which you have never experienced shall be delivered to you this season. On the other hand, there are some people who doors were opened to in the past but for one reason or another, the doors were shut. The man with the withered hand in Matthew 12:10 -13 once had a normal hand before something happened and it withered. Also, the widow of Nain once had a living son before death snatched him and Jesus raised him back to life (Luke 7:11-15). Are you in that situation? Every good door that opened to you but is now shut shall be reopened this
Good go give everybody him own key to him blessings today. Oya, carry your tourchlight go church find your own key.

It seems IBAN and BON have had enough from COSON, three days ago they announced the ban of all Nigerian artists registered with COSON. This means they ordered the immediate stop to the airing of songs of artists who are COSON members in Nigeria. They are accusing COSON of arbitrarily imposing and concocting fees which are not based on any agreeable and verifiable tariff and standards.
In a statement released and signed jointly by the President and Secretary of IBAN, Sonny Adun and Guy Murray Bruce, the need for such a drastic step was due to “the antagonism and harassment under the leadership of COSON Chairman, Tony Okoroji.
The affected artists include M.I, eLDee, Ruggedman, Wizkid, Asa, Waje, Omawumi, 2face Idibia, D’banj, Onyeka Onwenu, Iyanya, Banky W, Flavour, Ice Prince, Dr Sid, Olamide, 9ice and several others.
The statement in part reads
“No person or organisation, particularly a collection society such as COSON has a monopoly of authority over any other…IBAN and BON have the utmost respect for Nigerian artistes in their individual and collective capacities and have indeed contributed more than any known institution to the promotion of Nigerian music and the development of the entertainment industry as a whole.”
After BON and IBAN talk about the ban, wey be COSON chairman talk say the ban nah because of say them no wan pay naija musicians royalties for their songs wey them dey play. Him talk say nah because COSON ask them make them dey pay royalties thats why them decide to ban the musicians songs.Na wa o.
Disclosing this on a television programme today, a Professor of Counselling and Psychology at the University of Lagos, Professor Ngozi Osaweren, said as at this morning, the federal government has not deemed it fit to formally communicate the payment of the money to ASUU.
The Professor said she made phone calls to the leadership of the union to find out if the government had officially notified the union of the payment, the reply was negative.
She accused the government of not being sincere, adding that the government should formally communicate the union on the payment of the money, if it was sure.
The university lecturer accused the government of berating ASUU and taking it for granted.
The ASUU President Dr. Nasir Fagge-Issa had in an interview asked the government to formally communicate to the union that the money had been paid in the CBN as demanded by the union. He predicated the suspension of the strike on government replying a letter written by ASUU to government on 25 November.
Also, the Secretary of ASUU for Lagos State University, Comrade Adeyemi Suenu, talk say F.G wan do ASUU wayo but them no reach. H im talk say nah plan wey F.G wan use so that nigerians go call ASUU people yeye people. Him talk say if true true F.G pay any money, them for don tell ASUU.
