NOUN IKORODU: REP. BABAJIMI BENSON PLEDGED BUILDING TO NATIONAL OPEN UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA IKORODU MODEL STUDY CENTRE, PLUS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR CONSTITUENTS ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

302k3kemm2mmmm5427957998692849441 In a brief discussion with delegates from the National Open University of Nigeria on the 21st of January 2023, Hon. Babajimi Benson MHR has pledged to support the institution with a teaching complex.
Working currently to open a model study centre in Ikorodu, the institution's team met with the national legislator, seeking Rep. Benson's assistance to strengthen the academic body as it extends its teaching arm to the waterbed region.
The meeting was held at the constituency office of the federal lawgiver, which was also graced by the Adeboruwa of Igbogbo kingdom, HRM, Oba Semiudeen Orimadegun Kasali and Executive Chairman of Ikorodu West LCDA, Hon. Sulaimon Olanrewaju.
Speaking to Ikorodu News Network (INN), the pioneer director of the National Open University of Nigeria, Ikorodu Model study centre, Prof. Ajibola Saheed Oluwatoyin remarked that NOUN is coming to Ikorodu because most of its registered students in the mainland are showing up from Ikorodu axis, which became a spurring factor to expand.
Explaining the essence of meeting Rep. Benson, Prof. Ajibola Saheed Oluwatoyin, a professor of applied mathematics and also the immediate past NOUN Dean Faculty of Sciences, said the need for scholarship arouse due to learners who lack foundational funds.
Prof. Ajibola continued, "Presently, we have 3 study centres (at Obalende, Victoria Island and Apapa study centre) in Lagos State, Ikorodu, being a household name is due for a teaching annex".
"We're establishing Ikorodu model study centre to reduce the cost of transportation incurred by students coming to study with us on the mainland". Distinguishing his institutional mode of studying, Prof. Ajibola explained the effectiveness of NOUN's open and distant learning, adding that the institution eliminates the bottleneck of passing JAMB.
He further noted that with over 100 study centres in Nigeria, the institution correlates the same valid educational standards.
"The strike doesn't affect us here at NOUN and a first-class student from NOUN is considered first-class around the world".
"We're looking at officially starting up the institution with about 5,000 students between January and February of 2023" Prof. Ajibola asserted
While thanking Rep. Jimi Benson for affirming his sudden commitment to the educational course, Prof. Ajibola urged the council bosses across the LG/LCDAs to support forthcoming students with bursaries.
In 2022, the National Open University of Nigeria graduated over 22,000 students despite the strike that affected other institutions around the country.

ROTARIAN WALE OGUNBADEJO: HOW ROTARY CLUB BUILT THE OBA SEMIUDEEN ORIMADEGUN KASALI MULTIPURPOSE HALL IN IGBOGBO TO IMPACT LIVES ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

storage emulated 0 pictures comica cartoon16741479563827E2238896994409246988. Former Rotary Club District Governor, Rotarian Adewale Ogunbadejo in a brief communication with Ikorodu News Network (INN) explained how the club erected the Oba Semiudeen Orimadegun Kasali Multipurpose Hall in Igbogbo Baiyeku LCDA.
In a brief interview dated the 19th of January 2023, the former DG illustrated that the need arose to set up the youth empowerment centre when the waterbed was battling the notorious Baddo crisis.
"I was nominated in 2015, but my tenure elapsed from July 1st 2017 to June 30th 2018".
"Before my inauguration, I was requested to present a vision plan for my administration, and immediately, I thought of achieving a centre for skill acquisition".
"The killings by the Baddo group at that time were not just in Ikorodu alone, even in Gbagada where I reside as a medical doctor, we do wake up in the morning to find human corpses on the roadside due to the same crisis".
"So, as the government and communities were thinking of ways to remedy the situation, I thought of ways our club could help the youths become productive individuals during my tenure".
At that point (during his tenure), according to Rotarian Ogunbadejo, the club purposed to structure a skill acquisition centre (for mass education) that will strive to re-orientate the mindset of youngsters for a promising path.
He proceeded, "My good friend, Senator Gbenga Ashafa, who was representing the Lagos East Senatorial District at the time arranged a meeting for me with the former secretary to the Lagos State Governor, and current GAC member, Asiwaju Olorunfunmi Basorun. It was Baba Basorun who saw our conception, and directed us to have a scheduled discussion with the King".
With structural plans in place, the club met with HRM, Oba Semiudeen Orimadegun Kasali, Adeboruwa of Igbogbo Kingdom, who provided a free land space for the realisation of the project after listening to the club's vision for his community.
"Subsequently, we also met with the Executive Chairman of Igbogbo Baiyeku LCDA, Bldr Sesan Daini, to convey our well-received proposal, afterwards, we had to sign an MOU with the Council, Monarch and Community to officially kick off the project".
"It was a well-rounded synergy from the four corners of the LCDA to bring the undertaking to reality". Rotarian Ogunbadejo explained.
He further noted that a chunk of the funds used in building the multipurpose centre was raised during his inauguration ceremony.
The legacy project was commissioned 'Oba Semiudeen Orimadegun Kasali Multipurpose Centre' on the 14th of May 2018".
On the day of the commissioning, Ikorodu's own Mr Rotimi Ogunleye, who was the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development at that time, represented the Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, and also Mary Beth Growney Selene from the United States of America represented the Rotary International President.
"We built the event centre on the same premises, which would assist those managing the facility to put forward funds for maintenance purposes".
"Seeing what the centre is doing today, training youths from year to year, give me joy unspeakable".
"Presently, I am trying to seek support from our District Governor, Rotarian Omotunde Lawson, who's also a retired director of the Lagos State Ministry of Education, to see how we could raise funds to upgrade the effete equipment and further enhance the activity done there" Rotarian Ogunbadejo concluded.

PUBLIC SERVICE SHOULD EITHER BE 60YRS STRAIGHT OR 35YRS STRETCH WITH ADEQUATE REVIEW – ALHAJI BASHIRU AKINWANDE SAMINU ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

storage emulated 0 pictures comica cartoon16738480967557E24197270443316498154. Widely applauded for his outstanding story of rising from a cleaner to an assistant general manager, Alhaji Bashiru Akinwande Saminu has advised the government to review the work duration of public servants before retirement. Alhaji Saminu, an Ijede-based chartered accountant in an interview with Ikorodu News Network (INN) expressed that municipal subordinates would thoroughly maximise the line of obligation if the length of service is appropriately allotted and acknowledged.
He explained, "I was employed as a cleaner because I only had a school certificate, but with determination, I went back to school (after working for 2yrs), completed my ND, HND and also Master's degree within the space of 5yrs.
"(I got the approval to return based on an agreement that I'll return to service afterwards), So each time I depart school, I'll always return to continue my service which was meant to span 35yrs".
According to Alhaji Saminu, He spent over 5yrs in school and was later elevated in the ranks to the position of assistant general manager due to his successive presentation of results after studying. Pointing out that his back and forth with academics was not on a part-time basis, Alhaji Saminu disclosed that during those years, he was not paid until he returned exclusively back to work.
He continued, "So when you have 35yrs to discharge your duties as a public servant, and removing my active 5yrs in school, it meant I only functioned and got appreciated for just 30yrs".
"Yes, it is sure we can't fight the government's policy, and also you can't shift a goalpost when the game has already started. But my point is that the system needs to review the policy and make the service years more reasonable for civil subordinates".
"I am 55yrs and already retired, but what am saying is for the future of public service, to aid those who would eventually intend to return to school and boost their professional status, the system needs to work on models to appreciate such planning individuals".
"In a nutshell, am saying that if the public service can run straight to 60yrs, then so be it, but also, if it's for 35yrs only, then such people that plan to return to study should be given the benefit of going to upgrade their intellectual capacity, knowing that their service years are already elapsing".
Alhaji Saminu maintained that, if the government through its legislative arm decides not to appreciate public servants during their return to academia, then those years should be deducted from their active service timeline, so their commitments would be entirely maximised and appreciated.
"The policy needs to be re-enacted, because if a person intends to return to school without payment, then his/her schooling years should be deducted from their active service timeline as well".
"It is either 60yrs straight or 35yrs with pause and continuation policy to promptly articulate their duration of service" Alhaji Saminu rationalised.

Widely applauded for his outstanding story of rising from a cleaner to an assistant general manager, Alhaji Bashiru Akinwande Saminu has advised the government to review the work duration of public servants before retirement. Alhaji Saminu, an Ijede-based chartered accountant in an
