Senior secondary school students 1 and 2 have been reportedly barred by the federal government, from sitting for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), National Examination Council (NECO) and National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB).

The directive was reportedly conveyed in a circular issued to principals of federal unity schools by the Federal Ministry of Education.

In the circular signed by Binta Abdulkadir, Director, Senior Secondary Education at the education ministry and distributed to principals of unity schools, the Federal Ministry of Education also directed principals of unity schools to expel senior students who sit for external examinations before SS3 class, as they could distract other students from achieving their goals.

It read;

“The ministry’s attention has been drawn to the flagrant disregard to its directive on (the) writing of external examinations such as NABTEB (NTC and NBC), WASSCE, NECO (SSCE) by SS1 and SS2 students.

“Students who are involved in the practice find it difficult to settle down on serious studies. They become unruly and distract other students from achieving their goals.

“Any student caught to have written any of the above examinations in SS1 or SS2 classes will be expelled from the college. All students must write these examinations after they have been duly registered for the examination by the college.

“All students of Federal Unity College should adhere strictly to the content of this circular. And Principals are advised to bring the content of this circular to the knowledge of all parents of the college.”

George Floyd killer Derek Chauvin appeals against 22 years conviction

0

Former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, convicted of the murder of African-American man George Floyd in 2020 has decided to appeal against his conviction.

Chauvin was sentenced to over 22 years in jail after kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes in March 2020.

His death sparked mass protests against racism and police brutality in the US and all over the world.

He was found guilty of second-degree murder and other charges, was barred from owning firearms for life and also told to register as a predatory offender.

Derek Chauvin, a white man, says there were issues with the jury at the trial and that it should not have taken place in the US state of Minneapolis, citing bias against him.

According to court documents filed on Thursday, September 23, Chauvin alleges that the trial judge abused his discretion at several key points of the case, including denying a request to postpone or move the hearing from Minneapolis due to pre-trial publicity.

Chauvin also said he had no legal representative for the appeal process as the Minnesota police department’s “obligation to pay for my representation terminated upon my conviction and sentencing”,

Chauvin then asked the US Supreme Court to review an earlier decision to deny him a publicly-financed lawyer.

Chauvin, 45, was given 90 days from the date of his sentencing on 25 June to appeal against his conviction.

Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the Nigerian President on Media and Publicity, has said that a number of President Muhammadu’s Buhari’s fiercest critics dine with him at Aso Rock in Abuja.

He made this known in an opinion piece titled, “Buhari, FFK, And The Quality Of Mercy”.

In the article, Adesina addressed the commotion that greeted Femi Fani-Kayode’s defection to the All Progressives Congress and the reception he got from Buhari after his defection.

Adesina said a lot of loyal APC members were “hopping mad” that FFK was readmitted into the party and was hosted by Buhari himself.

He added that Buhari’s action shows his “amazing capacity to forgive, to show mercy, and let bygones be bygones.”

“How many of us can do that? Not many,” Adesina added.

Adesina added that working with Buhari has made him witness first-hand, the president’s ability to accommodate and forgive even his fiercest critics. He said he has visited Buhari multiple times only to find him dining with people who have insulted him publicly.

Adesina wrote: “I have worked with the President for over six years. And I have seen amazing things in terms of accommodation and capacity to forgive. I have visited him at home many times in the evenings, only to find at dinner table with him people who had been abusing his forefathers on television earlier in the day.

“This President has a capacity to forgive, and forget. And make peace. That was what he displayed in the case of FFK. Nothing short of divine attribute, which me and you should covet and seek to approximate.”
