Why Beauty was disqualified from BBNaija Season 7

Published

on

Big Brother housemate, Beauty Tukura, was Sunday night disqualified after the ex-beauty queen had engaged in another brawl with fellow housemates after Saturday party.

The heated argument raised concerns that Biggie could issue her a second strike. She got the first strike last week for physically attacking Ilebaye.

Beauty, who appeared to be intoxicated, tongue lashed her love interest, Groovy.

She said Groovy’s dick is very small, and yelled at Phyna, other housemates who attempted to caution her.
This eventually led to her eviction from the ‘Level up’ edition as it is against BBNaija rules to engage in physical fight or use violence in the house.

Keyamo’s outburst disappointing, FG misinforming Nigerians –ASUU

Published

Prof Emmanuel Osodeke and Festus Keyamo

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has dared the Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo (SAN), to list some of the actions taken by the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), to end the ongoing strike by the union.

The union also accused the Federal Government of not having the interest of Nigerians at heart.

Sunday PUNCH reports that Keyamo, the activist-turned-politician, during an interview on Channels TV had said the Federal Government had done all within its power to end the strike by ASUU.

Keyamo had also appealed to parents and guardians to “beg” the union while adding that the government had no plans to borrow to meet their demands.

ASUU declared a strike on Monday, February 14, 2022, at the University of Lagos, Nigeria.

The union blamed the government for failing to meet some of the lingering demands that it had presented before the suspension of its 2020 industrial action.

Some of the demands include the release of revitalisation funds for universities, release of earned academic allowances for the staff of universities, release of white paper of the visitation panel to universities, deployment of the University Transparency Accountability System for the payment of the salaries and allowances of lecturers, renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU/FGN agreement; stoppage to the proliferation of universities by lawmakers and other government officials.

Replying to Keyamo’s claims, the National President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, in an interview with Sunday PUNCH in Abuja, expressed disappointment at the claims by the minister.

“When I listened to him yesterday, I felt very disappointed. We are in a country where someone who has risen in the legal profession can come out to completely misinform the public. It is so sad and I feel so pained.

“We are challenging him to mention one of the things the government has done on all the issues that led to the strike. How much has been released for the revitalisation fund for universities? How much has been released for the payment of the earned academic allowances? Has the visitation panel report been released? This is a demand that does not even have to do with money,” he said.

He added, “Have they signed the agreement that was negotiated between their team and ASUU? On the issue of IPPIS and UTAS, have the results been made available? These are the questions Nigerians have to ask them. The demands that don’t have to do with money, have they met those demands?

“I am so disappointed. This is someone who was on the street fighting for the poor Nigerians until he joined politics. This same man has turned around to fight the Nigerian people. We challenge him to tell the Nigerian people what the government has done concerning the seven demands that were listed. It is so sad, and that is why Nigeria is where it is today.

“These people do not have the interest of Nigerians at heart. Nigeria is battling all manner of things. Insecurity, education is on lockdown. They have not released one kobo, I’m saying this with all due respect. The government has not released one kobo to any university since the strike started, but you are giving N1.14 billion worth of vehicles to government officials in the Niger Republic.

“You know why they don’t believe in Nigerians. If their children were to be in our schools, they would have done something”.
