    south africa tops the list yet low in education. it is research report and they base their measurement on online populaity of those educational institutions. not on quality of education if on quality you think of UNN.

  10. Austine A. Akung

    January 9, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    Whatever it is, the ranking is actually a signal and wake-up call to Nigerian Universities. No nation can grow above its levels of education. Thus, there is a corrolation between the ranking of Universities in South Africa and Egypt, and their level of development.

    What are the criteria for such a ranking? Does it consider their ability and measures to sustain development? Does it consider the level of infrastructure these universities have not to talk of the quality of their Faculty? If it does, American University of Nigeria should not just be on the list but be close to the top.

We Need N81 Million To Cut Grass In Abuja Stadium: Nigerian Minister



The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare has revealed that it will cost the ministry N81m to cut the grass and clear the weed that have taken over the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.

He stated this recently while speaking during the one-day seminar organised by the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) FCT chapter.

According to him, the ministry approached the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) for assessment in the stadium, which was built in 2003 with N53 billion on a 29 hectares (72 acres) of land.

The stadium is divided into Package A which houses the Main Bowl and Package B which houses other facilities like basketball courts, NFF office, volleyball courts, tennis courts, squash courts.

“We approached AEPB to come see what can be done to clear the grass and weed in the stadium and they told us it will cost us N81m.

“If we tell Nigerians we used N81m which is not even available, there will be an outcry. The funds are not really there for us and that is why we are partnering with private investors to bring back the key components of our infrastructures,” he said.

It’s smart if a man refuses to date a jobless woman in Nigeria — Leo DaSilva



Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Leo Da Silva recently got internet users debating afte he waded into a conversation centered on men refusing to date women who are not financially stable.

A lady who disclosed that she’s a student, had tweeted;

I’ve seen tweets from guys saying they can’t date a girl that’s not financially stable. I’m a student. But never, like never have I felt attacked by such tweets. What’s actually up with some guys on Twitter? What I want must not make sense to you. It’s choice boo

Reacting to this, Leo stated that it’s a smart choice for young men to refuse to date jobless women. He added that guys should have their own preference just as women have theirs.

He tweeted in response;

Guys should have their own preference just as women have theirs. Dating someone that’s not working or doesn’t have adequate allowance is a burden. Nigeria, the poverty capital of the world, if a young man trying to come up refuses that burden, I think it’s a smart choice.
