continuation of strike.
Lecturers at the University
of Jos have voted for
continuation of the on-
going strike by the
Academic Staff Union of
University (ASUU) in the
Chairman of the chapter,
Dr. David Jankam who
made this known on
Monday while speaking
with THE NATION shortly
after the congress of the
chapter said members did

the dialogue with the
federal government to
warrant calling off the

of fact our members voted
overwhelmingly for the
continuation of the state

universities that made up

the federal government in

DONE DEAL! President Jonathan shares handshake, smile with ASUU delegation
Yes! Pack your bags!
A source close to top guns in the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) has said that the lecturers will ditch their four month old strike this weekend so students could resume on November 18 (next Monday).
The source said there was no way the union could reject the new offer of N220bn a year tabled by President Goodluck Jonathan during a marathon meeting with ASUU last week Tuesday.
ASUU had come out of that meeting to tell Nigerians it needed time to deliberate on the new deal and reach a consensus among it members before talking to the press.
A top official of the union, has however said the government could not be trusted even on the new offer, and that ASUU’s members were divided over the government’s offer. He, however raised a beam of hope by saying the majority still decided to give the government the benefit of the doubt.
As ASUU executives meet this Wednesday, if the fate of the strike is down to a vote among the striking lecturers, as suggested by ASUU chairman, Nasir Fagge, the four month old impasse may surely end this week.
ASUU went on strike July 1 over the non-implementation of a 2009 agreement it had with the government with a key component of the memorandum of understanding the allocation of 26% of Nigeria’s total budget to education.
Although the government is planning to allocate just 9% of the 2014 budget to education, ASUU now seems set to end the strike after government offers that would surely boost lecturers’ take home pay and improve varsity infrastructure

Falilat who was a member of the Association of Theatre Arts Practitioner of Nigeria, ANTP, in Ogun State reportedly died on Tuesday at her residence in Sagamu, Ogun State.
According to report, she died after a brief illness.
She is survived by two children, an aged father and siblings.
She was described by ANTP in Ogun State as a versatile, energetic and confident actress.
A Nigerian, an American and a German board a plane.
As the plane was flying over the sea satan came out and said to them: I want you to drop something into the sea, if i find it you die and if i don’t you live.
The American quickly plucked a button from his shirt and threw it into the sea, satan dived into the sea and came up with the button. ”see!” he said and killed the American.
The German threw a Pin into the sea, Satan dived and came out with the Pin. ”See!” he said and killed the German.
The Nigerian brought out a pure water sachet, opened it and poured the contents into the sea holding back the sachet, he said to Satan, ”Oya begin find water inside water…Idiot”…
Am proud �*nerd* 2 b a Nigerian ”Even the devil bowed”. Lolzzz
