Governor Bello Condemns Burning Of Dino Melaye's Constituency Projects

The Kogi State government has condemned the burning of four of Senator Dino Melaye's constituency projects in Lokoja, the state capital by some hoodlums.

Reacting to the incident, the Director General, Media and Publicity to the state governor, Kingsley Fanwo who spoke on behalf of government during an assessment tour of the burnt facility, said the state government has directed security operatives to fish out the arsonists.

"Irrespective of who is doing the project, the fund is from the government. So whether it is the executive or legislative, such projects should rather be applauded and not destroyed", he said.

Saraki, Wike, Tambuwal, Ortom In Defection Talks

HND Certificates’ Long Road To Obliteration - The Death-Knell Of The Dichotomy Between BSc And HND

Image result for the death-knell of the dichotomy between BSc and HND

With the Federal Executive Council giving approval for the scrapping of the award of the higher national diploma (HND) and the approved submission of two executive bills to the National Assembly for enactment, the death-knell of the dichotomy between BSc and HND has been sounded

There was no fanfare when the announcement was made during the Federal Executive Council meeting held recently concerning the decision to scrap the award of HND by polytechnics. It was a subtle decision that drew no rancour or debates among the ministers in President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet. The FEC also decided to limit the award of certificates by polytechnics to National Diploma (ND) and turn the institutions to campuses of proximate universities. This appears simple on paper but there will likely be issues ahead stemming from state government-owned and private polytechnics.

Saraki Betrayed APC, He's A Traitor & A Double Agent - APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Yekini Nabena, has described Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, as a double agent.
