Yesterday I reported how Queens Hall ladies protested against the Hall Package they were given by the Hall Executives.

Well, the image below shows the Package:


This is the package that got people talking

The little set over there is a Manicure set that contains one tiny nail cutter,scissors, microscopic mirror.

This is enough to infuriate the Ladies who payed 3000 Naira for dues during this recession.



Students in Queens Hall have revolted against their Hall Executives due to the Hall Package that was handed to them this week. The Queens, as fondly called, resorted to whistles, drums and songs to register their displeasure at the package and are calling for an emergency congress.

Hall Package included a Book and One Tiny nail cutter,scissors, microscopic mirror according to the source while they paid a heavy sum of #4000 (3000 Naira for Due and 1000 Naira for Dinner)

More information will follow as the night progresses…


Sustainable Economic Development: Our Nation and Probity of the Youth.


The Student Christian Movement (SCM) of Nigeria, University of Ibadan branch, an affiliate of the World Student Christian Federation,  based in Geneva Switzerland and the first  Christian Student Organization of the premier University, has a core value of ‘reaching out to youth urgently for Christ’ through the preaching of the word and through youth based empowerment programmes and capacity building summits.
The SCM, UI has a core value of ‘reaching out to youth urgently’ through the preaching of the word and organising youth based empowerment programmes and capacity building summit.  However, because of our unique development in the Colonial Era, SCM UI had maintained the stance of a watch man in the governance of our nation Nigeria which further explains how in our 75 years of existence, we have been able to engage in activities (spiritual social and intellectual) that aim to bring about a social change and youth development also, birthing a suitable governance for this nation and the world at large. 
This passion has been handed over to us from afore generations. Therefore it is our ardent desire to achieve  a better Nigeria.
This led us to  setting a means to our end which is organising a Public Lecture tagged ‘CONVERGE 2016’ in which we are preparing to engage the topic; ‘Sustainable Economic Development: Our Nation and Probity of the Youth with Ambassador Moses Ihonde as the guest speaker and other keynote speakers. The pioneer Dean of Technology, Professor Fola Aboaba, who is also our Chairman Board of Patrons, will chair this intellectual summit. Among other things, Ambassador Moses Ihonde and other speakers will be considering how the upright youth can make use of the resources available to have positive impact on Nigeria.

Greatest UItes!

I welcome you back on campus from the vacation that was necessitated by the disruption of academic activities on campus during the last week of the month of April. In spite of the contrary readings to the intention of the Senate, Council and Management, it was a decision taken to protect the lives and interest of a very special class of people on campus; the students. 

I cannot over emphasize the fact that your lives and interests remain of utmost importance to the University Management and we will not hesitate to go to lengths to ensure that you live and learn in a safe, conducive and inspiring environment. 

Without doubt, students are bound to have their contributions, observations, complaints even grievances. As you constitute the majority of the inhabitants of the University community , you are entitled to draw the attention of the necessary bodies as well as lodge your complaints to the appropriate quarters in time particularly on topical issues that border on municipal services such as electricity and water which are vital to your well-being. Issues arising from both are being addressed to the best of our ability but when there are complaints it will be appropriate to lodge such through the relevant establishments.

Security is also another key issue particularly because of the menace of terrorism and the prevailing national situation.  You would be expected to put on your identity cards to prevent the incursion of terrorists and interlopers on campus.


This current administration respects the right of students  to protest and has no policy that enforces a culture of silence.  As students of the first and the best university in the country, our ultimate goal is to raise world class scholars, professionals and executives who are to thrive on dialogue, administrative processes and procedures instead of violent protests which usually leads to danger for the innocent among the students.

I reassure you once again of my goodwill and genuine commitment to your well-being. Members of the University community are aware, and I will like to reiterate, that I am available, reachable and accessible to everyone, especially the students. Irrespective of diverse opinions, some of which are obviously tainted, I like to see myself as your father, friend and mentor, all in a bid to ensure that you excel in your various fields of study. I welcome you back to the rest of the semester which has been interrupted but which with some delibrateness can still be engaged to yield the best in spite of its limitations.

The university calendar has been adjusted to accommodate the disruption and it is my utmost desire that you settle in speedily to make the most of the rest of the semester.

Part of my vision for students is to extend the frontiers of knowledge and create best practice in exposure for leadership training and professional development. All of these are being put in place by the University Management and I am certain that everyone can find a place within the scheme. 

Once again I welcome you back to a most rewarding rest of the semester and success in your examinations.

Thank you and God bless.

Hello guys! Her name is Opeyemi and is a new writer on the blog. She just loves to share her mind. Try reading what’s on her mind today.

My sister has to take 20 pictures before seeing her “PERFECT” display picture,a friend of mine could cry if she doesn’t have the PERFECT 100 percent score in any mathematics test,my neighbours wish they had the PERFECT stature_ tall,light n slim all of us at one time have suffered from this perfection syndrome cos there is always a level higher than our present status there is nothing bad in wanting to be our best but we can truly be happy with who we are_even though we are not perfect.
Self-love is very important. Love yourself and others don’t have an option but to love you too. Someone once said,success is liking yourself, liking what you do n liking how you do it. Be your own kind of beautiful. Be realistic with your goals. Seek to do your best but not not to achieve perfection. Do not let mistakes make you miserable. They are part of life. Laugh a lot about yourself ,imperfections, mistakes. Don’t compare yourself to others ,they have their own struggles. You are your own kind of beautiful. Be happy!


The former world heavyweight boxing champion, one of the world’s best-known sportsmen, died at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix, Arizona, after being admitted on Thursday.

He was suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson’s disease.

The funeral will take place in Ali’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, his family said in a statement.

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Ali shot to fame by winning light-heavyweight gold at the 1960 Rome Olympics.

Nicknamed “The Greatest”, the American beat Sonny Liston in 1964 to win his first world title and became the first boxer to capture a world heavyweight title on three separate occasions.

He eventually retired in 1981, having won 56 of his 61 fights.

Crowned “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated and “Sports Personality of the Century” by the BBC, Ali was noted for his pre- and post-fight talk and bold fight predictions just as much as his boxing skills inside the ring.

But he was also a civil rights campaigner and poet who transcended the bounds of sport, race and nationality.

Asked how he would like to be remembered, he once said: “As a man who never sold out his people. But if that’s too much, then just a good boxer. I won’t even mind if you don’t mention how pretty I was.”

Ali turned professional immediately after the Rome Olympics and rose through the heavyweight ranks, delighting crowds with his showboating, shuffling feet and lightning reflexes.

British champion Henry Cooper came close to stopping Clay, as he was still known, when they met in a non-title bout in London in 1963.

Cooper floored the American with a left hook, but Clay picked himself up off the canvas and won the fight in the next round when a severe cut around Cooper’s left eye forced the Englishman to retire

In February the following year, Clay stunned the boxing world by winning his first world heavyweight title at the age of 22.

He predicted he would beat Liston, who had never lost, but few believed he could do it.

Yet, after six stunning rounds, Liston quit on his stool, unable to cope with his brash, young opponent.

At the time of his first fight with Liston, Clay was already involved with the Nation of Islam, a religious movement whose stated goals were to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of African Americans in the United States.

But in contrast to the inclusive approach favoured by civil rights leaders like Dr Martin Luther King, the Nation of Islam called for separate black development and was treated by suspicion by the American public.

Ali eventually converted to Islam, ditching what he perceived was his “slave name” and becoming Cassius X and then Muhammad Ali.
