He said, “We are not going on break because of the elections. Actually, the management has not said anything concerning that. They will have to be the ones to speak on that. Sometimes during elections we send the students home but the management has not said anything about that.”

Bunmi also noted that the nearest polling unit to the school was at the traditional ruler, Oba Ilale’ s palace.

Similarly, Augustine University in Ilara -Epe area of Lagos State, which has 500 students, stated that the school would be in session during the elections.

When asked if the students were eligible to participate in the election, the acting director of ICT at the Catholic-owned institution, Sister Adebola Daramola, said, “Yes, (but) there is no polling unit within the campus.”

The Communications Officer of the university, Nicholas Obayi , said members of staff would vote but the students could not leave the campus on the election day.

Obayi said, “It’s a fully residential university. The school won’ t allow students go out and do anything, but lecturers live in their different houses, so if they want to do anything, everyone is free to go and do whatever they want.

“With lecturers, you can’t be asking who wants to vote and who doesn’t want to vote. As I said, the elections would hold on Saturdays, so you can’ t control the movement of people.”

An admissions officer, Baze University, who gave his name simply as Usman, also said he did not believe the school, which has 1 ,300 students, would release the students to vote.

    Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog like yours take a
    large amount of work? I am brand new to writing a blog however I do
    write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.

    Delivery Of Magazine is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how
    they create article titles to grab people to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people
    excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your

    Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

South West Governors react to call by Northern elders that Fulani herdsmen should leave Southern region

South West Governors react to call by Northern elders that Fulani herdsmen should leave Southern region south west governors

South-West Governors Forum has reacted to a recent call by Northern Elders Forum, NEF, asking herdsmen to leave the Southern region of the country and return to the North.

Governors of the South West said the call was most unfortunate, divisive and retrogressive.

The Chairman of NEF, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, had in a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, claimed that there was a move by some trouble elements to engage herders with violence in the Southern part of the country, while directing the herders to return to the North.

South-West Governors’ reaction was contained in a statement personally signed by the Forum’s Chairman and Ondo State , Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Friday.

The statement added, ”With no intention to engage anyone, it is incumbent on us, as elected representatives of our people in the South West Region of the country, to denounce this divisive and retrogressive statement in the strongest terms possible.

“The Southwest Governors viewed the report with palpable trepidation and outrage, the sustained attempts to fan the ember of discord, seizing every opportunity offered by the current security challenge to undermine the unity and peaceful co-existence among Nigerians.”

“It is appalling, to assert the least, that the tragic incident, which claimed the life of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Pa Fasoranti, the leader of Afenifere, would be used by certain persons to advance the cause of parochial and prebendal politics.

“We intend to get to the root of the sad occurrence as we await the findings of security agencies on the unfortunate incident.”

“The governors and the people of the South West are working assiduously, at the current security challenges with a view to finding lasting solutions to curtail the nefarious activities of undesirable elements bent on wrecking our collective peace.

”We are not unaware of the antics of certain elements, who hope to garner political mileage from the contrived crises in virtually all parts of the country.

“We are equally convinced that this confusion serves the narrow interests of some persons.

“The country has a rich history; she has had to encounter adversities in the course of her transition to nationhood.

“She has overcome them all. This distraction will also pass. We look up to the security agencies to take cohesive steps to curtail this major challenge of insecurity which engenders hopelessness.

“We can only enjoin all citizens, on our part, to be patient and continue to cooperate with them as they combat the festering crises.

“We on our part have taken great strides with the hope that great success will be achieved.

“We, however, note, with discomfiture, the unpatriotic acts of some Nigerians, who will stop at nothing in their bid to undermine the Federal Government.”

Buhari vs Atiku: I got presidential election results from website operated by INEC official – ICT expert tells tribunal Buhari Atiku 1 1

An ICT expert from Kenya, David Ayu Nyango Njoga on Friday said he retrieved the results of the presidential from a server allegedly operated by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Njong, who is a petitioner’s witness, told the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal that the results of the last elections were stored in a server allegedly operated by INEC.

According to Njoga, he only got the report which he later analysed from a third party website: “www.factdontlieng.com”.

Claiming that the information was provided by an INEC official, Njoga informed the tribunal that the alleged INEC official acted as an anonymous person.

When asked if the website belonged to INEC, he said no but by a whistle-blower.

Njonga said the website was created on March 12, 2019.

When reminded that the presidential election held on February 23 and the results were released before March 12, the witness went mute.
