Management shuts down Rufus Giwa Polytechnic in Ondo Stateas lecturers protest unpaid salariesThe management of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic Owo, Ondo State, on Tuesday, shut the school after members of its chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics staged a peaceful protest against the non-payment of their five months’ salaries. It was gathered that the demonstration by the lecturers paralysed social and academic activities on the campus of the institution as the examinations scheduled to start on Tuesday could not hold.  Addressing journalists, the ASUP Chairman in the institution, Mr Rafiu Ijawoye, accused the management of the school of not paying attention to the welfare of the lecturers. Ijawoye alleged that the management had refused to pay the backlog of salaries of the ASUP members after allegedly receiving N1.7bn from the state government, adding that the promotion of the lecturers had been stalled since 2017.He stated, “We decided to have a peaceful rally against the opposition and oppression of the school management against the welfare of our members. I am bringing to the attention of the public the precarious situation and the danger looming in the polytechnic community.It is unfortunate that the management is insensitive to the plight of the workers. We believe that the system must move forward. This is a collective struggle, because if our courses are disaccredited as a result of the non-payment of salaries, it will be a bad omen for the system.The governor has done his best in the last few months in bailing us out. Before the last accreditation, the management owed us about eight months’ salaries and the government released N1.7bn for the payment of the salary arrears and other emoluments.  “But it is unfortunate that the management, because of its selfish interest, is foot-dragging and withholding N500m out of this money, which could have reduced the salary arrears. What did they use the money that Mr Governor gave for?“Aside that, the 2017 and 2018 promotion is still pending. We are not second-class citizens and it is unfair of the management to withhold our promotion; it is not a privilege but our right. It is on that note that we are expressing our grievances.” The ASUP chairman called on Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to appoint a substantive rector for the institution, adding that that would save the system from collapse.   The management, in a statement by the acting Registrar of the institution, Mr Sule Atiku, asked the students to vacate the school premises. According to the statement, the decision was taken in order to prevent the breakdown of law and order on the campus.  The management advised the students to vacate the campus latest by 3pm on Tuesday.The post Management shuts down Rufus Giwa Polytechnic in Ondo Stateas lecturers protest unpaid salaries appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

Bella Thorne breaks down in tears on Instagram over Whoopi Goldberg's remarks to her nude photosAmerican actress and singer, Bella Thorne has tearfully hit back at Whoopi Goldberg who seemingly shamed her over her recentl nude photo scandal. Last week, Bella Thorne was the victim of a hack on social media where the actress revealed that the hackers had threatened to release her nude photographs so Thorne decided to release the photos on her own accord. Reacting to the nude photos Whoopi Goldberg and other panelists on her show 'The View' had some pretty controversial views on the matter."If you're famous, I don't care how old you are... you don't take nude pictures of yourself. Once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it. And if you don't know that in 2019 that this is an issue, I'm sorry. You don't get to do that" Goldberg said. In her response to Goldberg, a tearful Bella Thorne who became emotional over Goldberg's victim-blaming called out the 63-year-old saying;"I was supposed to be on 'The View' but honestly I don't feel like being beaten down by a bunch of older women for my body and my sexuality. I just want to say that me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself. I hope you're happy. I really do.I really hope you're so f**king happy because I can only imagine all of the kids who have their s**t released and then they commit suicide. You're so crazy for thinking such terrible things on such an awful situation.I don't really want you guys talking about your views to young girls. I would not want my [future] daughter learning that and I would never say that to her. OK, I'm done." The post Bella Thorne breaks down in tears on Instagram over Whoopi Goldberg's remarks to her 'leaked' nude photos appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
Image result for vice President Yemi OsinbajoVice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the problem of extreme poverty in Nigeria keeps him up at night. The Vice President disclosed this at a dinner and Interactive Session with Faculty Members, Harvard Business School (HBS) in Lagos on Tuesday June 18th. “I think what keeps me up at night has to do with extreme poverty. The issue is that the largest number of those who vote for us are the very poor. The promises that government makes to them is that their lives will be better and obviously they are looking at their lives being better in the shortest possible time. I will like to see Nigeria being an industrialised nation in the next 10 years; a very strong middle class and most people living above poverty line.” he said The post Extreme poverty in Nigeria gives me sleepless nights VP Yemi Osinbajo appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
