In a statement issued by his spokesperson, the Secretary-General also deplored attacks against the UN mission in Haiti, known as MINUSTAH, as well as against the Government and private property. Mr. Ban appealed for calm and urged demonstrators to refrain from further acts of violence. He also expressed sympathy for the suffering of the Haitian people resulting from the recent rise in food prices, and encouraged international donors to provide urgent assistance.The spokesperson added that MINUSTAH has taken all necessary measures to assist the Haitian authorities in protecting key installations and institutions. 9 April 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today expressed concern over the recent violence in Haiti and particularly the deaths that have occurred amid demonstrations against the high cost of living in the poverty-stricken Caribbean country.
“The Secretary-General is deeply saddened by the heavy loss of life and extensive damage caused by a powerful earthquake that struck near the city of Al Hoceima,” UN spokesman Fred Eckhard told reporters in New York.The UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said a quake measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale struck the Mediterranean Sea, just off the coast from the Moroccan port city of Al Hoceima, about 2.30 a.m. local time today.A situation report from OCHA said that while there were no reports of damage in Al Hoceima itself, several villages near its outskirts were badly hit. The death toll is forecast to rise into the hundreds. Most of the inhabitants of the villages of Ait Kamra, Tamassint and Imzourn live in mud-brick structures.Conveying Mr. Annan’s deepest sympathy to the Moroccan Government and the families of the quake victims, Mr. Eckhard said “the UN stands ready to render assistance.” OCHA said it was ready to activate international assistance as soon as the Moroccan Government requested help. The UN’s Resident Coordinator in Morocco, Emmanuel Dierckx de Casterle, told OCHA that Morocco was handling relief efforts and was unlikely to ask for international assistance.
In a report to the Security Council on the activities of Yuli Vorontsov, his envoy dealing with the issue, Mr. Annan welcomes the fact that the remains of three more Kuwaitis have been recovered.But the fate of 370 others is still unknown, and “this reflects disappointingly slow progress,” he says.The report notes that “serious security challenges in Iraq have impeded searches for graves and exhumation of known sites where Kuwaiti and other nationals are thought to be buried.” Mr. Annan welcomes efforts by the Tripartite Commission dealing with the issue to ascertain the fate of the missing and voices hope that arrangements “will help to bring the issue of Kuwaiti prisoners of war and third-country nationals to a satisfactory close.”On a related matter, he says it is “sad that there has been no movement forward with regard to finding and returning the Kuwaiti national archives.” The Secretary-General repeats his call on anyone who may have information on their whereabouts to come forward.
Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones tweeted “horrible” when Michael Sam became the first openly gay player to be drafted in NFL history, and it has cost him an undisclosed amount fine and suspension from the team until he “completes educational training” for his actions, according to the club.Sam, the former Missouri linebacker was selected by the St. Louis Rams, with the next-to-last pick in the draft. His reaction—including tears and a kiss from his male friend—was captured on television, prompting Jones to post on Twitter: “OMG. Horrible.”In the NFL, which is seeking to create a culture of sensitivity, Jones’ reaction was not welcomed, even if it represented many others’ views, too.“I want to apologize to Michael Sam for the inappropriate comments that I made last night on social media,” Jones said in a statement released by the team. “I take full responsibility for them and I regret that these tweets took away from his draft moment. I remember last year when I was drafted in the seventh round and all of the emotions and happiness I felt when I received the call that gave me an opportunity to play for an NFL team, and I wish him all the best in his NFL career. I sincerely apologize to Mr. Ross, my teammates, coaches, staff and fans for these tweets. I am committed to represent the values of the Miami Dolphins organization and appreciate the opportunity I have been given to do so going forward.”“We met with Don today about respect, discrimination and judgment, coach Joe Philbin said. “These comments are not consistent with the values and standards of our program. We will continue to emphasize and educate our players that these statements will not be tolerated.”Rams head coach Jeff Fisher told NFL Network soon after Sam was picked that he didn’t anticipate issues about his sexuality.“I don’t have any concern whatsoever. We drafted a good football player,” Fisher said. “I’m excited to get him on the practice field and get him going so yeah, there’s gonna be a little extra tension for a couple days, but Michael was the SEC co-defensive player of the year.”Sam had 11 1/2 sacks last season for Missouri. Many believe he would have been selected higher had he stayed essentially in the closet. NFL scouts, of course, likely would have learned he was gay after they began evaluating prospects after the season, since Sam was out to his college teammates — and there was a strong chance of him being outed against his will.
Michigan arrived in Columbus not the least bit intimidated by the No. 1-ranked, undefeated Ohio State men’s basketball team. The Wolverines stood toe-to-toe with the Buckeyes for most of the game Thursday night, but despite trailing at halftime, OSU showed exactly how it’s managed the second-best start in program history. “Ohio State is really good,” Wolverine coach John Beilein said. “There’s a reason they’re undefeated.” On the shoulders of freshman Jared Sullinger’s 10th double-double of the season, OSU (23-0, 10-0 Big Ten) bested unranked but feisty Michigan (13-10, 3-7 Big Ten), 62-53. Sullinger played all 40 minutes, scoring 19 points and grabbing 15 rebounds to lead the Buckeyes to victory. OSU jumped out to a quick lead, beginning the game with a 7-0 run, but the Wolverines were in no mood to let the Buckeyes blow them out early. A 3-pointer from junior guard Zack Novak tied the game at 14-14 with 11:39 to go in the first half. Four minutes later, a jumper from junior guard Stu Douglass gave the Wolverines their first lead, 20-19. The Buckeyes regained the lead, but back-to-back Michigan buckets to close the half put OSU down, 26-23, at the break. It was just the fourth time all season the Buckeyes have been trailing at halftime, and they entered the locker room with 10 turnovers and shooting just 36 percent from the field. “That’s not Ohio State basketball,” freshman point guard Aaron Craft said of the Buckeyes’ offensive struggles in the first 20 minutes. “That’s not what we’ve been doing all year to get us in the position we’re at.” A basket from redshirt freshman forward Jordan Morgan gave the Wolverines a 30-24 lead early in the second half, but two 3-pointers from junior guard William Buford tied the game, 30-30, and ignited the sellout crowd at the Schottenstein Center. With his first points of the game, senior forward David Lighty gave the Buckeyes a two-point lead with just less than 14 minutes remaining. The Wolverines quickly tied it, but a 7-0 Buckeye run, capped with a Lighty free throw, gave OSU a 44-36 lead with 9:37 to go. Again, however, Michigan answered. Back-to-back 3-pointers from freshmen Evan Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr. cut the Buckeye lead to two. But Sullinger’s eight points over the next five minutes fueled a 10-3 OSU run that gave the Buckeyes a 54-45 lead, their largest of the game to that point, with less than three minutes remaining. “In the second half we took our intensity to another level,” Sullinger said. “We know it’s Michigan, and we know they’re going to give us their best shot. On top of that it’s a rivalry, so we just had to take it to another level.” After struggling through the first half, OSU shot 54 percent from the field in the second, and ended the game on an 18-9 run to earn the nine-point victory. Buford finished with 13 points, including three 3-pointers. Lighty and senior guard Jon Diebler added nine points apiece. The win, despite the seemingly comfortable margin of victory, was yet another game that perhaps could have gone either way down the stretch. The close games, Buford said, are simply what comes with a No. 1 ranking and will only help the Buckeyes in the long run. “We know every team is going to come after us,” Buford said. “We’re the No. 1 team in the country. They’re giving us their best shot, and we’re taking people’s best punches right now so when we get to the tournament we’ll be prepared.” OSU coach Thad Matta is happy as long as his team keeps winning, regardless of how close the games are. “It’s amazing, and I keep saying this just looking across college basketball,” Matta said. “There are great players, there are great coaches and to be sitting here today 23-0 and 10-0 in the Big Ten is something else.” The Buckeyes travel to Minneapolis to play No. 18 Minnesota at 2 p.m. Sunday.
“The human cost of these perfectly avoidable errors is far greater than the financial cost,” he said.“Most of these costs would be avoided if the NHS investigated incidents better, recognised when they were at fault and settled claims earlier. “He also raised concerns about Government plans to introduced fixed cost schemes, which he said would leave patients worse off.Emma Hallinan, from the Medical Protection Society, which represents doctors accused of negligence, said reforms were necessary, because costs were “spiralling” and would become too great for the NHS to bear.She said: “It is important that there is reasonable compensation for patients harmed following clinical negligence, but a balance must be struck against society’s ability to pay. If the current trend continues the balance will tip too far and the cost risks becoming unsustainable.”Many of the most expensive claims involve babies left brain damaged at birth, where payouts involve the cost of care for life.

The NHS paid out more than £1bn in damages for medical negligence last year – a record high, fuelled by maternity blunders, official figures show.Patients groups said the figures showed the need to improve safety in hospitals, with particular concerns about the rising costs caused by catastrophic errors in childbirth.Doctors’ representatives said the trends – which show a doubling in overall negligence costs in a decade, showed the need to cap costs, in order to limit the amount being spent on lawyers.The figures from NHS Resolution show £1.7bn in total on negligence claims – with almost £700,000 spent on lawyers. The total figure has almost doubled since 2010/11, the statistics show.Peter Walsh, chief executive of charity Action against Medical Accidents, said the NHS was spending too much on litigation, because it was failing to improve its safety record, and spending too much fighting cases it should not defend. While 10 per cent of all claims in 2016/17 involved such cases, they accounted for 50 per cent of the total value of the claims, health officials said.The value of such claims – often linked with a failure to monitor babies’ heart rates, to detect risks of oxygen starvation – has tripled over the past decade.In recent months, a string of inquests have found that babies are dying and others put at risk of major brain injury because it is commonplace for British midwives to qualify without proper training in use of heart monitors.Senior coroners called for changes to reform the system, with hospital trusts advised to stop recruiting newly qualified midwives until they can prove they have such skills, with annual checks.

MONTENEGRO WIN THE EHF EURO 2012 AGAINST NORWAY WITH 34:31 AFTER TWO OVER TIMES!! GOLD MEDAL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR HISTORY!In a very tense match in which no team could make a goal difference larger than two goals in the first half, and in which both teams exchanged the lead in the first half, saw the Montenegrin girls leading 12:11 at half time after Barjaktarovic made some fantastic saves in the final minutes of the half. Sonja Barjaktarevic, Milena Knezevic and Katarina Bulatovic were Montenegro’s best in the first half, while Linn Jorum Sulland, Anja Edin and Yda Alstad along with goalkeeper Katrine Lunde Haraldsen are worthy of mention in the Norwegian team. Same followed in the second half, despite Montenegro having 3-goals lead at one point, Norway fought back and kept the tension in the game. So it went until the end, with 1 minute and 30 seconds to go it was 23:23! Knezevic scores for 24:23 with 30 seconds to go. Alstad scores for 24:24, and the game goes in over time! Despite having 3 goals lead in the over time, Norway fight back, and fight for another over time of 2 x 5 minutes! Not much changes after the third over time, 30:30 at the end of it. Finally with 3:0 run in the end of the 4th over time, Montenegro wins with 34:31 after 80 minutes of play!FIRST HALFMontenegro open the game with a save and a goal by Milena Knezevic, and in the next attack Norway equalizes to 1:1 through Yda Alstad, and the same player scores again in the next attack for 2:1 Norway lead. A real projectile by Katarina Bulatovic, and it’s 2:2. Another turn of the score, Knezevic and it’s 3:2 for Montenegro. The first two-goal is in the 7th minute, Pavicevic makes it 4:2 for Montenegro! Breivang makes it 3:4, and Riegelhuth has chance for 4:4 but misses a penalty, superb save Bajraktarovic. Miljanic from counter-attack and again two-goal difference, 5:3 in 10th minute! Heidi Loke’s first goal comes in the 11th minute, 4:5. Borgensen steals, and Herrem equalizes to 5:5.

Sulland hits the post, but in the next attack scores lobbing Montenegro’s goalkeeper, 6:7 in the 15th minute. Lunde Haraldsen saves, and Anja Edin with very powerful shot levels the score, 7:7. Bulatovic’s shot is saved, and Loke scores for 8:7 Norway lead. Dragan Adzic calls a timeout. Edin and Bulatovic score each, 9:8 for Norway in the 19th minute. Montenegro GK saves, Knezevic and it’s 9:9! Few minutes no goal deadlock is broken by Alstad and Norway leads again 10:9.

Sulland‘s superb shot gives Norway two goals lead, only to be cut to one with Biljana Pavicevic’s goal. Norway is given 7m, but Barjaktarovic saves Loke’s penalty, 2 minutes suspension for Bulatovic Angjela. On the other side, Milena Knezevic manages to give Montenegro a penalty, and goal scored by Katarina Bulatovic, and the score is equal again, 11:11 with few minutes to go in the first half. Norway with offensive foul, and Milena Knezevic scores for 12:11 Montenegro lead! Montenegro defends well, and has the final attack in the first half, but score only after the half time was whistled. 12:11 Montenegro lead at the half time. In the first over time Norway can’t score, while Montenegro score two goals, and it’s 26:24 after the first over time.SECOND HALFSecond half is opened with Angjela Bulatovic’s goal for 13:11 Montenegro lead, but Loke immediately scores for 12:13. Knezevic for 14:12 Montenegro lead, her 5th goal in the match. Radicevic with the counter-attack, and the first time 3-goal lead in the match, Montenegro 15:12.

Suzana Lazovic’s attempt results with 7-meters for Montenegro, and Bulatovic converts it in a goal, 18:16 Montenegro, only to see it down to one goal through Alstad.

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson believes Maurizio Sarri must drop goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to send a strong message to other players.Kepa blatantly refused to be subbed off in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City, which sparked controversy at the club.The Italian manager has tried to calm the incident by insinuating it was a misunderstanding ahead of a crucial game against Spurs on Wednesday night.However, Merson who played under George Graham has advised Sarri to learn from his former boss by replacing Kepa with Willy Caballero.“I think the manager has to stay strong and tell him he’s not playing – he’s got to,” he said on Sky Sports Debate.“If you’re the manager then you’ve got to tell him you’ve shown me no respect otherwise the rest of the players will be thinking ‘wow, come on’.”Merson equally opened up on how he was instantly punished by Graham after disrespecting the former Arsenal manager.Match Preview: Wolverhampton vs Chelsea Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Wolverhampton will host Chelsea at the Molineux Stadium in one of the most interesting Premier League games this weekend.🗣️ Kepa and Maurizio Sarri speak out as Chelsea announce that Kepa has been fined a week’s wages for his actions on Sunday pic.twitter.com/RR0aXItLWX— B/R Football (@brfootball) February 26, 2019“I laughed at him once and I didn’t play for two months,” he said.“And, we played Huddersfield in the League Cup and I walked straight down the tunnel. I didn’t play for a month after that. I didn’t show enough respect and got punished so you don’t do it again, although I have done it twice… so maybe don’t use me as an example!“You’ve got to give your manager the respect.”
Listen at WEAA Live Stream: http://amber.streamguys.com.4020/live.m3uIs Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby providing fuel for her critics of her prosecution of the six police officers connected to the death of Freddie Gray? Many argue her appearance with Prince during his concert for Baltimore over the weekend made her already arduous task of convicting any of the officers even more challenging. We’ll engage our experts on the controversial matter. Plus, a round table discussion with middle and high school students on their thoughts about the Baltimore uprising. These stories and more coming up this evening on AFRO’s First Edition with Sean Yoes.
Charlotte James of Baltimore’s Code in the Schools organization, speaks during a panel at the White House. (Image via YouTube)Some of Baltimore’s top leaders gathered at the White House June 6 for a panel discussion which analyzed social change in the city.Called “The Front Lines of Social Innovation: Models for Change from Baltimore City,” the event was streamed live from the White House and addressed the social plights that Baltimore is facing. Among those in attendance were Democratic mayoral nominee Catherine Pugh, Bishop Eugene Sutton, and Senator Ben Cardin. From its record-high homicide rate to dealing with the aftermath of Freddie Gray’s death, there are many aspects of Baltimore in need of social reform.Sarah Hemminger, a neuroscientist and CEO of Thread, a city non-profit which engages underperforming high school students, spoke about her mentoring program and the importance of lifting up Baltimore’s youth.“During times of division and strife in our city, we must rediscover the thing that is most important: one another,” said Hemminger. Thread helps teens in less-than-ideal social situations thrive academically. She mentors low-income and at-risk kids with low GPAs, and helps them to graduate high school and further their education. Her program has a graduation rate of over 90 percent. Through several heart-wrenching anecdotes, Hemminger shared how she not only touched her mentees lives, but how they have helped her to grow as well.The city’s health commissioner, Dr. Leana Wen, stressed the importance of healthcare to create social change. She talked about Vision for Baltimore, which allowed children to receive free eye exams and glasses. She also discussed her national campaign to help those with opioid and drug addiction.“More people die from overdose than die from homicide,” said Wen. “We believed that every resident could save a life.” The city’s health department has provided healthcare training to various members of the community to help with this issue. She also discussed racial disparities in health and how one of her programs that hires recently-released convicts helps with violence prevention.Other topics of discussion included adding coding and computer science to school curriculums, youth outreach, education, and more. After the speeches there was also a panel discussion in which a panel of experts discussed other steps Baltimore needs to make towards reform.“There are deep rooted problems of inequality, poverty and racism, but our residents feel the fierce urgency of now,” said Wen.

Dr. Vaughn said of his son’s political forays.Vaughn also ran for Maryland’s U.S. Senate seat in 2012, losing in the Republican Primary to Dan Bongino. According to the Vote Smart website, which provides information on political candidates, Vaughn also ran for the U.S. Senate seat as a Republican in 2000, 2004 and 2006 and was a Republican candidate for president in 2008.Vaughn was also known as a local radio host, co-hosting with former Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele, “Lunchtime With the Maryland GOP,” on WOLB in the early 2000’s.On the occasion of his parents 50th wedding anniversary and his father’s 75th birthday, Vaughn told the AFRO in 2013, “Because of my parent’s involvement in the community, it’s good to see people come out and appreciate them.”“The Lord loaned him to me…but, the Lord now has reclaimed him,” Rev. Dr. Vaughn said.Corrogan Vaughn leaves to mourn: his mother and father, two sisters; Rev. Dr. Lynette Vaughn, assistant pastor and Sharon Baptist Church and Cassandra Vaughn-Fox, a media professional, both of Baltimore; along with many other family members and friends.The funeral for Corrogan Vaughn will be August 28 at Sharon Baptist Church, 1375 N.

The Indian Institute of Advanced Studies (IIAS), a research institution in Shimla, has published another edition of Myanmar’s pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, the institute’s official said on Friday. ‘The second edition of Suu Kyi’s book Burma and India: Some Aspects of Intellectual Life under Colonialism has been brought out as a paperback edition and is priced at Rs 195,’ IIAS director Peter Ronald Desouza said in a statement. The bookis based on the manuscript Suu Kyi submitted after completion of her fellowship at the IIAS in 1987. The book, first published in 1990, is about comparative study of intellectual life under colonialism in the two countries. It describes the varying responses of India and Burma during British colonialism, responses which reflect the changing social structure and character of the two societies. It also discusses the Buddhist influence from India on Burma and the inability of Burmese society to resist the colonial onslaught in contrast to India, which developed a more substantial response. The opposition leader of Myanmar stayed at the IIAS with her husband Michael Aris, who was also a fellow, and their two sons. ‘It was through the ambassador of India to Burma that Suu Kyi could be sent the re-typed and proof-read version of her book to make the necessary changes, which she did,’ Desouza said. ‘She chose the cover design,’ he added. On the request of Suu Kyi, he said, IIAS would send some copies of the book to public libraries and universities across India. The IIAS is a premier advanced research institution in the field of humanities and social sciences.

in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Mixed Results in Latest Census Bureau Housing Report Housing Permits Housing Starts US Census Bureau 2019-06-18 Mike Albanese The U.S Census Bureau’s Residential Housing Report for May 2019 revealed there has been very little change in housing starts over the past month, with single-family housing experiencing both ups and downs.The report found that May saw 1.27 million housing starts, which is just a 0.9% decline from April’s estimate 1.28 million. Single-family housing starts in May, though, were 820,000, which is 6.4% below the revised April estimate of 820,000.Building permits for single-family homes increased 3.7% month-over-month to 815,000 from April’s 786,000.The Census’ report found there were 1.21 million housing completions in May, which is 9.5% decrease from April, and a year-over-year drop of 2.8%. Completions of single-family housing is estimated to be 890,000, and is a 5% decline from last month’s 937,000.“This month’s overall pace of housing starts, 1.27 million units, sends a mixed message for the housing market – fewer new homes coming to the market in the short term, but some hope of more housing supply in the not too distant future,” said First American’s Deputy Chief Economist Odeta Kushi. “U.S. homebuilding fell in May, with housing starts declining 4.7% compared with one year ago. The decline will be discouraging for home buyers as it signals less supply for a housing market in need of a supply surge.”Kushi said the “bright spot in an otherwise underwhelming report” is the number of permits issued, which can signal further growth.“Building permits experienced the highest monthly rate of growth since December – indicating more construction may be on the horizon,” Kushi said. “The overall number of permits edged up 0.3% compared to April, suggesting the housing market may be benefitting from the continued decline in mortgage rates.”Additional construction in the near future might be an issue, as the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) reported earlier this month that the number of vacant jobs in the construction sector increased to 404,000—a post-Great Recession high.The NAHB stated this represents a year-over-year increase of more than 258,000 job openings since April 2018.

declaration when they protested against hike in school fees unpaid bursary and persistent strike by lecturers in tertiary institutions owned by the state government on Monday in Ibadan the state capital FOSSU’s National President Azeez Sharafudeen while speaking with journalists during the protest that started at Total Garden and ended at the state Secretariat Agodi Ibadan said that the state

Federation of Oyo State Students’ Union [FOSSU] on Monday 29th of October 2018 over the underfunding of educational sector and perpetual strike actions in all state-owned tertiary institutions and the non-payment of indigenous students bursary/grant Thousands of indigenous students across the country gathered today to protest against bad educational policy in the state unjust skyrocketing of tuitions fee incessant strike action in all state-owned institutions over-crowding of students in lecture rooms imposing of illegal levies on students in the name of generating IGR for state-owned schools semi-privatization of state-owned institutions lack of teaching materials & aids in schools lack of infrastructures in school and failure to fulfill the signed MOU over the payment of students bursary and other issues on education in the state Today thousands of indigenous students in the state have resolved to come out in a well-applauded democratic measure to inform the general public the plight bedevilling the state of education and students’ well-being in the state Today’s commitment has taken a page in the history of the state yes The planned mass demonstration is dedicated to every mind who continued to feel unjust discomfort and not pleased with the provocative circumstances ceaselessly visiting the educational sectors of the state where the human resources and the material values hosting the academic terrain scathe continued to suffer setbacks as the degradation keeps resurfacing in the system Entire students of the state under the leadership of Comrade Azeez Akano stating categorically right from inception into office as National President has been proving to be resolute radical and coordinated wing of students movement This has provided us with enormous opportunity to maintain our cordial affairs with the APC – led government of the state regardless of unwelcoming treatment we continue to receive at our ends It’s considered imperative to inform the members of public society and the international community as the derelict state of education calls for public concerns The government of the state under the leadership of Governor Abiola Ajimobi in recent time as part of its ability to enliven the inclusion of students’ responsibilities in government by charting a template to ensure students enjoy the bursary scheme and scholarship grants but we can say this was only done to defraud unsuspecting numbers of students who applied through online – registration with sum of one thousand two hundred naira [N1200] as processes involved were found to be fraudulent and it was an act to extort students Even from the record 2012 was the last year students’ bursary/grants were included in the budget of the state though was done with series of manipulations and irregularities where bonafide and genuine students of the state who duly registered as a member of FOSSU were unable to appear in the beneficiary list The spinning out of this wicked situation seems to be reflecting in the present consideration giving to the bursary scheme by the state government Education sector bursary scheme and scholarship grant as a major benefit that integrates and includes students into governance has hence facing unfavourable treatment by the state government Recently the umbrella body of all indigenous students of Oyo State FOSSU has rightly raised alarm on the double-standard play out of the state government over its unproductive response which translates into its apparent jettison to implement the signed MOU; the agreement in question was unequivocally made by the government and students body during the roundtable peace-broker meeting held on May 21st 2018 in a bid to avert the planned protest of May 24th 2018 having exhausted all means and mechanism in articulating for the right of entire students The joint Memorandum released stated that 21 days ultimatum was agreed – on in order to provide effective modality at which the said payment will be done and the two bodies shall reconvene for subsequent activities stipulated toward successful actualization of this year bursary scheme We’re addressing the public today as part of the day activities for the massive occupation of the state as other activities will soon be unleashed students of the state have resolved to kick start the mass demonstration until justice is provided and needful is done to the yearnings of the students We’re as well stating categorically that no hanky-panky play on the part of the government shall be entertained and no excuses of financial shortfall shall be condoned What can we say when other states in the region are doing well to put smile on the faces of students Lagos Ogun Ekiti and others are on yearly basis ensuring the implementation of students bursary in the state budget in order to strengthen the fact at hand; Kwara State has recently released the sum of 100M for the payment of students’ bursary FOSSU actions and

2017 where all issues affecting Oyo State institutions were discussed and resolutions of the meeting expected to be implemented but Alas Just few of the resolutions were implemented The general public will recall that the state government in its guise for payment of student’s bursary in 2014 mandated all Oyo state students to purchase an online bursary form of 1200 per applicants Over 20000 Oyo state indigenous students purchased the form amounted to millions of naira The government since 2014 refused to pay the said bursary and never returned student money collected Series of consultations with the Oyo State Scholarship Board and Ministry of Education on why the government did not conclude the bursary payment proof abortive as no tangible excuses were given After failed attempt to persuade the government to pay the said bursary Oyo state students choose to go on protest on may 24th 2018 which led the government on 21st may 2018 to engage the student’s leader in a roundtable meeting to avert the proposed protest meanwhile before the student leaders agreed to cancelled the may 24th 2018 protest the government representatives consisting of SSG Commissioner for Education

around request the leaders to submit the details of all Oyo state students qualified for the bursary and appealed to stop the plan protest for the government to work on the students data who shall be beneficiary of the said bursary The students’ leaders ever since submission of students data to the government had continued to contact the government on the ways forward but the government has been playing upon the students’ intelligence and tactically delaying and planning to put the action under the carpet The student under the umbrella body of Federations Oyo state Student Union [FOSSU] National Council called for a progressive meeting between students in the state on Thursday 4th October 2018 where all students angrily decided to go a strong planned protest and press-conference to

nearly $41000 in five hours The account was started by an anonymous organizer listed only as “Friends of Special Agent Peter Strzok” with a stated goal of raising $150000 The costs will go towards Strzok’s legal fees and supplementing his lost income since he is currently unemployed Strzok’s attorney Aitan Goelman said in a statement Monday that the Deputy Director of the FBI had fired his client last Friday overruling the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility that had recommended Strzok receive a 60-ay suspension and a demotion David Bowdich is currently Deputy Director of the FBI “The decision to fire Special Agent Strzok is not only a departure from typical Bureau practice but also contradicts Director Wray’s testimony to Congress and his assurances that the FBI intended to follow its regular process in this and all personnel matters” said Goelman Strzok a two decade veteran of the FBI had overseen Hillary Clinton’s email server investigation as well as the beginning of the investigation into Russian meddling in the election But he was reassigned to the Human Resources Department after Michael Horowitz the inspector general in the Department of Justice discovered texts he had sent to another FBI agent Lisa Page with whom he was having an extramarital affair that contained anti-Trump sentiments Although Horowitz concluded the text messages displayed bias he does not conclude that bias affected any of the investigations “This decision should be deeply troubling to all Americans” Goelman said “A lengthy investigation and multiple rounds of Congressional testimony failed to produce a shred of evidence that Special Agent Strzok’s personal views ever affected his work” But the news of Strzok’s termination was met with glee by President Trump who claimed in a tweet without evidence that the investigation Strzok oversaw into Clinton’s e-mail server was a “total fraud on the American public and should be properly redone” “Based on the fact that Strzok
