Former Kwara State University Lecturer commits suicide

A former lecturer at the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture, Kwara State University, Malete, Dr. Solomon Osunlola, committed suicide yesterday Friday, November 17th.
According to reports, the registrar of KWASU had written to inform him of his conversion to a contract staff from a full-time appointment. This reportedly got the deceased so depressed that some of his friends had to seek spiritual help because it became a serious case.
The deceased had lost his wife three months ago. One of his friends had offered to assist him with a job at Landmark University but Osunlola declined and refused to submit his credentials.
Yesterday, his family members had to force his room door open after he did not step out in the morning. Sadly, they discovered that he had committed suicide.
Confirming his death, the director, Public Relations, KWASU, Dr. Isiaka Aliagan, said
“The Management of KWASU, Malete, would like to clarify that the late Dr. Oluremi Solomon Osunlola, was a Lecturer 1 in the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture. He joined the services of the Institution on a full-time appointment in 2010. However, during staff verification, it was discovered that the late Osunlola had already retired from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Kwara Office, before taking up a full-time appointment with KWASU.
Despite the fact that the deceased violated the rule of his engagement, the university, in August, 2017, converted his appointment to contract on compassionate grounds. This is all we can say about the late Osunlola.”
His remains have been deposited at the morgue.

Father of 7 accused of raping 3 year old to death sent to prison

You would be wondering what other satisfaction will a married man with 7 children want from an infant, as minor as a three year old. Well, just not too long ago, a father of seven, Abdullahi Sani, was on Thursday docked at a Senior Magistrate court in Kastina for allegedly raping a three year old girl to death.

The 50-year-old resident of Jabiri Quarters, Fantua, was alleged to have committed the offence on October 12.

Sani is now facing rape and culpable homicide charges, which the Police said are in accordance with Section 283 and 221 of Penal Code Law.

While reading the First information Report (FIR), the police persecutor, Inspector Sani Ado stated that, Sani had called the victim who was of the same address, took her to an uncompleted building, covered her mouth and raped her.

“In the process, she died instantly”, he said.

The Police prosecutor however said investigation on the case was ongoing and requested that the case be adjourned to another date.

Abdulkadiri Umar, the Senior Magistrate directed that Sani be remanded in prison custody till December 18, when the case is to come up for mention before Senior Magistrate Falile Dikko.

” Just bring your baby”, Professor tells Student Mum

A professor in Tennessee has a solution for a student who missed class after she couldn’t find someone to babysit her 3-year-old girl: Just bring the child to class.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Professor Sally Hunter at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville emailed Morgan King that she would be “absolutely delighted” to hold King’s daughter, Korbin, while teaching class.

“I’m very serious with this offer— just bring Korbyn with you!” the professor wrote, excusing the student for missing a class.

King later posted on Twitter that she cried with gratitude. And her professor’s email wound up being shared widely on social media, even by Chancellor Beverly Davenport.

Wrote Davenport: “Morgan, thanks for showing us challenges college students face. Prof Hunter, thanks for being part of the solution.”

FUT Minna donates books to UNIJOS

Federal University of Technology (FUT) Minna, has donated 148 titles with 458 volumes of books to the University of Jos which library was gutted by fire late last year.

Vice Chancellor of FUT, Prof Musbau Akanji, said the books were donated because the colossal loss of books and equipment in UniJos was a national calamity.

“A library is a centre of civilisation of all cultures because it is a custodian of knowledge. When a library is burnt, it is like a culture is destroyed. It is not easy to re-build a lost library,” the VC noted.

Responding, the Vice Chancellor of UniJos, Prof. Seddi Sebastian Maimako, applauded FUT Minna for coming to the aid of the institution, adding that the university was encouraged by the kind gesture.

Prof. Maimako, who was represented by the University Librarian, Dr. Stephen Akintunde, assured FUT Minna that the books would be properly channeled and classified for the use of the students.

Prof. Maimako further revealed that the university library was host to six faculties, stating that the institution lost over 60 per cent of its books and equipment to the fire.

He disclosed that the Federal Government, through the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), approved N729 million for the renovation of the library and that construction work would soon commence after the bidding process.
If Nigerian campuses continue like this, we fit now dey yarn about United Nigeria… Gbosa for FUT Minna jare

PREVENTION AND CURE OF HALITOSIS OR BAD BREATH

This is a featured post By Dr. Harold Katz (Bad Breath expert) publishedbin commemoration of world oral health day.
Courtesy of Therabreath

What is Halitosis (Bad Breath)?

Halitosis, commonly known as bad breath, is an embarrassing health condition that affects approximately 30% of people around the world. Additional medical terms for this condition include stomatodysodia, fetor oris, and ozostomia. Regardless of the term used, this is the presence of a foul-smelling odor that seems to come from the mouth cavity. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, in more than 90% of cases, the odor originates in the mouth, throat, and tonsils. Although this is something everyone experiences at one time or another, if your case does not improve after brushing, flossing, and rinsing the mouth with analcohol free mouthwash, it may be chronic.

The foul oral odor is usually caused by a group of anaerobic, sulfur-producing bacteria that breed beneath the surface of the tongue and often in the throat and tonsil area. The term “anaerobic” literally means living without oxygen, and in fact, these bacteria do not require oxygen to live. Continue reading PREVENTION AND CURE OF HALITOSIS OR BAD BREATH
