The recently released results by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) have claimed  lives in Delta State. Two female students that failed their  exams  yesterday allegedly committed suicide in Asaba, the state capital.

Reports said the students committed suicide after checking their result in the internet and discovered that it was unfavourable to them.

Sources said the victims  had written the exams  three times without passing their Maths and English Language, which led them to allegedly resolve to commit suicide.

Some persons who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity confirmed that the students  had struggled to gain admission into the University in the last few years without success.

Police sources at the “B” Division Asaba said the students were allegedly found dead in their various rooms after a search party that was conducted.

    failing exam is not the end of life, God is going to punish them for what they have done becauce God have a purpose for their life in this world. why they should take their life like dat, which l think is a sin. l pray God forgive them.

    I feel pity for the youths of today because we are being faced with different facets of vices most grievously is wanton disregard for human life. Failure in WAEC is definitely not failure in life. Do not forget the success story of famous entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates, who had to leave school, to pursure their dreams. Sometimes, we don’t get what we want because it is not at the appointed time. This brings to fore some salient questions like what are the duties of parents as advisers and guardians. I think if these girls had the heart-warming advice of their parents to make them realise the need to never give-up.
    I only wish them what the CERATOR of our lives and the world wishes them.

FG, ASUU Meeting Over IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock

FG, ASUU Meeting Over IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock
FG, ASUU Talks On IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock

ASUU and FG

The meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday ended in a deadlock.

Although some agreements were reached at the meeting, the meeting is set to reconvene on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, by 3.00 pm after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting for ASUU to report back on the decision of its NEC.

In a bid to end the strike, the federal government agreed to release N30billion for payment of arrears of earned academic allowance to the university lecturers.

The communiqué issued at the end of the meeting revealed that the release of N20 billion funds for revitalisation of public universities will be payable by the end of January 2021.

On the issue of Earned Academic Allowances(EAA), which had accumulated to N40 billion since November 2019, the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) made a commitment to release N30 billion on or before November 6, 2020.

He said the remaining N10 billion would be spread equally over the two tranches to be paid in May 2021 and February 2022, respectively.

The communiqué also revealed that ASUU agreed to take the offer to its members for consideration and revert by Wednesday, October 21, 2020.

The issue of the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) almost stalled the meeting as the federal government asked that IPPIS be allowed to operate in the interim until the test run on UTAS is concluded.

But ASUU insisted on payment of outstanding salaries on the old GIFMIS platform before full implementation of UTAS.
