There is an online discussion regarding the huge fees of one of the notable private universities in Nigeria as the costs of schooling of freshers go public.
She took to IG to slam LAUTECH students who went on their IG pages to insult her for her motives to run for the governor of Oyo state.
Lautech students are busy abusing and disrespecting me on their Instagram college pages. You are being used as political baits and you don’t seem to notice it. Lautech students are smart but not intelligent. I’m not a soft leader, Im a tough leader cos I want the best for you. No need to vote for me, APC and PDP are waiting for your vote. Aregbesola and Ajimobi are outgoing governors. We have London and Paris club refunds that could be infused into this mess. Aregbe should hand over Lautech to #Oyo state and Ajimobi should infuse part of our N7B #London club refund into it. Students need to know what’s going on and what caused it. Instead all I see are Instagram slayers, prostitutes on the ground and Yahoo boys all over. Shout Out to Bisola my neighbor’s daughter who is sewing outfits while school is closed. Respect authority. If I become governor, I plan to employ under 40 yo graduates in my cabinet. When u are abusing me now, I will just hire Unibadan students only. SMH. Don’t burn your bridges. You may need to cross it later. At the rate it’s going, the FEDS will take over Lautech soon.

Tips When Motivating Children to Love Education
Children at their earliest ages should learn and realize the importance of education to their lives. However, there are just some kids who try to resist the norm and insist on doing things their way. How could you motivate your children or teens to treat education as a necessary preparation for their future? Here are some practical and proven effective guidelines.
Teach the value of education early in a child’s life. Children are naturally curious and observant. They may be wondering why you love reading books or magazines. Tell them that they need to learn to read to be able to also share such enjoyment. It would help if you would tell your children on a daily basis how important getting a good education is in attaining goals and dreams in life.
Be creative when teaching children during their formative years. If you are not a teacher in profession, you could still strive to be an effective home tutor to your kids. You see, as a parent, you should also learn how to make your children enjoy learning and studying. You could impose play and fun activities at home to make children realize that learning is not as boring as they think.
Take your children to educational yet fun parks. Instead of taking them to the malls to stroll, why not take them to a museum, a science center, or a zoo for a change? When they get more curious about things, tell them they would know more if they would continue getting education. This strategy would certainly make them more motivated to learn and study.
Introduce the computer to children. Computers never fail to amaze people, especially young children. It seems that this is a computer generation. Of course, emphasize to your kids that they could not in any way exploit the potential of computers and the Internet without getting necessary education. In no time, you would hear them asking you how they could learn more. By that time, you should realize that the ball is in your hands.
Take your children to the streets where there are vagabonds and beggars. This may not sound very nice, but you could tell your children they could end up like those unfortunate people if they fail to get necessary education. You could surely instantly see the frights in their faces, for sure.
How about applying education or learning to daily activities? You could incorporate mathematics to daily tasks and situations. Their love for learning could start if you rely on them in doing specific tasks. Incorporate counting, reading, and writing on those simple tasks. For example, you take them to the market and make them buy certain items (like 5 apples, 10 oranges, and the likes). At the end of the day, you could see them get the thrill and satisfaction.
Enroll your children to the most reputable and effective schools. Traditionally, parents treat schooling of children as investments. If you want them to love education, make sure to place them into an environment that would foster comfort, fun, and learning at the same time. Do not hesitate because of high costs. Most of the time, the best and most effective schools call for premium in their quality of education.
If it would make your children better individuals, why not spend for it?
In light of the present economic situation of the country, past Minister of Education, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, on Sunday declared that the demands by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) were unrealistic.
Ezekwesili asserted this while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan while reacting to the ongoing strike embarked upon by the union.
“Money is not limitless and yet everyone must acknowledge that investment in education is crucial and it is key.
“There are, however, some fundamental reforms that the sector needs in order to ensure that it is not about the size of the funding but about the productivity of the funding.
“You cannot simply express a desire, it must be founded on reality and that means you must know what can be achieved within a given period,” she said.
“If you remember, the ASUU negotiation started in 2007 when I was the Minister of Education and we constituted a government negotiation team, led by the late Gamaliel Onosode,
“Even though that period was short, one of the major issues for me was for us to make sure that we were being evidenced based in the way we were solving the problem,
“We considered issues like the existing model in countries similar to us in emerging economies,’’ she said.
The former minister said the team also considered what could be done by the public and private sectors about university funding among others.
“Those are the kinds of evidence that we had and on the basis of which we hinged our negotiation at that time,
“It was a very short period and then we had to leave and the next government that took over had to continue.
“I do not know the basis of the final agreement they reached with ASSUU, but if it was not anchored on analytical evidence, I am not surprised that there has been inability to implement it.”
She urged the Federal Government and ASUU to renegotiate on the basis of analysis and evidence to find lasting solution to the dispute.]

This is how you make better your brain’s health and performance.
Christianity as a faith is endowed with so many universities which both help to educate and to reform. Considering that there are over 37 million denominations of Christianity, it is difficult to successfully group Christian Universities.
