World Speech Day 2017 - KWASU

The annual World Speech Day 2017 was held in Kwasu and the program kicked off by 11:00 A.M at the Engineering building.

Opening Speech by Miss Ifeoluwa. (ICT)

"The future women have to work for"

A prosperous and effective features rely heavily on your present condition. It is vital for every woman to define their intending future.

According to the books of Faith, it should be noted that "Women are created to be a help mate and contribute to the whole development of existence and not a dependent being upon Men" women are meant to perfect existence.

Women should be dependent enough to sustain positive virtues that will contribute to the world development.


"Change begins with everyone"
by Abubakar Imam (ICT)

He advocated for youth involvement in Political happenings in the country. Implored Nigerian youths to cnecentrate on developing their countries, contribute their quota. Sighted an example of Students bypassing the queue at the ATM stand, disobedience of traffic rules and regulations. He asseted that the real change begins with us.

Adnan Ghazali (An Astronautic Engineering Student)

He proclaimed himself as an illetrate an identify how youths are getting themselves wrong such as Religious confusion among others. He advocated that youths should embrace friendliness, brotherhood and show care to those in needs.

The second speaker (Samuel) brushed through the lexical structure of the word "Better", he emphasised that "Better" comes from "Good". He confessed of his misconduct on how he stylishly make some little cash from selling photocopied materials to course mates and implore everyone to stay away from such acts. Also, he declared Nigerian youths to be success driven, battle ready and act against traditional and ethnocentric stereotypes.

Dolapo one of the speakers at the event talked about "Building valuable skills as a student", he emphasized on leveraging the internet to learn valuable skills that will increase individual level of productivity of youths. Also. he exclaimed that what you don't have you can't give and before we think of rendering assistance to the larger community.

"Enough of words and thoughts positive  actions are needed" were the resounding words of Kolapo Imam at the WORLD SPEECH DAY event held at Kwasu. Kolapo emphasized on the wrong use of the internet today. He juxtaposed between the "HIM" now and the previous "HIM", saying he loves what he is doing now, than what he was forced to do then (just study and get high grades). He spoke of his mentor EMDEE TIAMIYU as a source of motivation to him and many others. Also, he advised everyone to put in positivity to everything they are doing and expatiated on the use of digital devices (smartphones, ipads, laptops, tablets).

Lastly, he rhetorically asked attendees on
Where were you last 5 years?
Where and what did you get wrong?
Where do you want to be in the next five years?

Player ratings - Accounting 2 - 1 Kinesiology

Player Ratings: Accounting 2 -1 Kinesiology
Accounting
(4-4-2)
1. Joshua. 3.5/5.0. Could arguably do little about Abdulah’s own-goal, which took him completely by surprise, and pulled off several good
saves to keep Accounting at bay

2. Ahmed Kadir. 3.0/5.0
Got forward well and overall put in an accomplished display

5. Quadri. 4.0/5.0
The Defender was excellent from start to finish. Dealt with everything that was thrown at him and offered wonderful
cover for Abdullah when Kinesiology tried to break quickly

6. Abdullah. 3.0/5.0
It was a tough game for the centre-back, who was put under plenty of pressure, and he never looked entirely comfortable.
Was slightly risky with some of his play and put the ball into the back of his own net with a poor attempted clearance.

3. Fuhad. 4.0/5.0
Keen to break to the byline and support attacks whenever possible. Ended up scoring a penalty

 16. Abubakar Saheed 4.0/5.0
Broke up play, picked off loose ends and facilitated the attack efficiently.

20. Olamide Olawoye. 3.5/5.0
Did an impressive job in the middle of the park

10. Saka Jamiu. 3.5/5.0
Not quite at his best, but his presence alone still had to be respected by the Kinesiology backline.

7. Mujeeb. 4.0/5.0
The forward was a free spirit on the left flank, tormenting the defence and getting a well-deserved goal on the end of a counter.

8. Sodiq Oseni. 3.5/5.0
Effective on either flank, and played some inviting balls into the penalty area from out wide

9. Tofunmi. 3.5/5.0
Had his moments in the match, but still played second fiddle to the brilliance of Mujeeb. Did put a lot of pressure on the Kinesiology backline.


SUBSTITUTES
38. Ibrahim Balogun. 3.0/5.0
Ensured that his side held out for the win after replacing Olamide.

17. Rasheed. 2.5/5.0
Did not get involved too much.

11. Toromade. 3.0/5.0
Deployed out on the right-hand side and occasionally threatened to get in behind with his pace

Student breaks 3 decades record at BUK

A student from the Department of Sociology, Bayero University Kano (BUK), Sani Muhammad has broken the 36 years old record of the department.
The brilliant student who is an indigene of Borno State from Hawul Local Government Area, graduated with a first class degree with 4.65 Cumulative Grade Point Aggregate.
Sharing his pain and gain with newsmen, Sanni said, “The journey so far has been really challenging, the one I can’t forget was my level 300 second semester exam. I wrote that exam with lots of engagement with other duties. I was preparing on travelling to the United States for the Study of the United States Institute (SUSI) program. I didn’t have much time to read or concentrate and some other activities and issues here and there really kept me off-track and less focused.
“I called my parents to pray for me, I reaffirmed my commitment towards making good grades. And I got support from a lot of people during that period. In such times having a good support system like parents, and encouragement from your lecturers would really help.
“I initially had doubt about the course from the beginning, I even started asking about interdepartmental transfer but after my first semester result and encouragement from my level coordinator, I felt this is what I’m born to study. I even wanted to leave BUK for the Nigerian Defence Academy in Level 200, but I didn’t make through the finals,” he added.
The student who could not hold back his happiness thanked everyone, ”the feeling is awesome and indescribable. I feel so overwhelmed with joy and happiness and I want to thank each and everyone who has contributed with prayers and well wishes to this success,” he added.

Students register to study Kanye West as a course

Image result for kanye west 
A new course of study has been introduced at Washington University in St. Louis, United States.
According to reports, this course will see the students examine the world and life of superstar rapper, Kanye West.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 75 third year students have already registered for the course which is titled, “Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics”.
Professor, Jeffrey McCune, of the institution noted that the course which began this week in January will focus on the rapper, producer and fashion designer and it will offer a way for students to connect issues of politics, race, gender, sexuality and culture.
He gave the course description saying, “Kanye West As a hip-hop artist has had unprecedented impact on the sonic force of music, fashion, politics, and videography.
”Coupling his controversial moments, with his corpus of musical texts with special focus on sonic production, this course illuminates Mr West as a case study for interrogating the interplay between fame, gender, sexuality, and race.
“Mostly, we explore how racialised ways of doing iconography, complex ways of seeing, creates a distorted or reductive frame through which we see the black and famous.
”Nonetheless, the course oscillates with entertaining these nuances, while being entertained by the decade-long catalogue of music and visual imagery.
“Together, we extract the ‘Politics of Mr West’ in his music and life, while also illuminating the importance of a politics of genius-making in the larger arc of black pop culture tradition.”

Nigerian Student who was treated as OUTCAST succeeds in the U.K

 
A Nigerian student, Victor Chukwueke who was treated as an outcast while in Nigeria because of his massive face tumors, has defied all odds with months away to becoming a medical doctor.
The young man who is now a 4th-year medical student at the University of Toledo, started his journey after his parents sought medical help in Nigeria and beyond.
Sharing his story, the medical student narrated that he was treated as an outcast in his home country “I was ostracized, I was afraid to go out in public. I couldn’t start medical school because I’m not a U.S. citizen,” he added.
He worked with Michigan Senator, Carl Levin on a private bill and his dream came true when President Barack Obama signed into law a private bill granting him permanent residency in the Unites States.
Chukwueke awaits residency match day to know where he will get his training. And he plans to use the skills he learned to help others in Nigeria. “I experienced firsthand how a lack of medical care can affect life,” he said.
Despite the obstacles, Chukueke remains committed to getting an education and he also realised that he wanted to do the same for others as he is now months away from becoming a doctor.

Meet Oyindamola Omotuyi, Unilag's best graduating student with 5.0 CGPA

Image result for oyindamola omotuyi
Oyindamola Omotuyi, will be graduating as the top of her class and her year mates with the highest Cumulative Grade Point Average of 5.0 from the Department of Systems Engineering in the University of Lagos on January 25, 2017
She is the first female to achieve the perfect C.G.P.A in UNILAG history and also the first engineering student to achieve such a feat in the faculty of Engineering at the prestigious University of First Choice and Nation’s Pride,the second person to achieve the perfect grade point after Ayodele Dada in Nigeria.
In a tete-a-tete interview, an I-witness sat with down the woman of God in the control laboratory – around her faculty, where she spent most of her last weeks at UNILAG finalizing her project to hear her story and experiences in Akoka.

Q: 
  Oyinda can you please introduce yourself to us?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Omotuyi Oyindamola Ajoke, Systems Engineering
Q: You just achieved a feat that quite a lot of people are wondering how you did it and not just how you did it but going back to how you started, can you just us through your story?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: My whole life revolves around a man and that is Jesus. I would rather say that there is really nothing…. People say God did it probably to end up a particular story, it was good O! Olorun lo se(God did it O!) and something like that and really not understand that actually. God did it because all the while through five years there was actually a particular wisdom to apply at every particular time, that is the truth. So I’m not been religious by saying God did it, I’m just been truthful about it. So obviously there is wisdom to do everything that you are supposed to do. A student obviously will obviously read. A student will always go for overnight but yet there is just something different about everybody. There is really nothing I will say, there is an extra thing I did but let me just say probably working with classmates, probably reading with classmates and encouragements from friends like classmates from people like Gbemi (present at the interview) and Yemisi and all of that. So that is what I will just say and let me put it like this, it is not really about the 5.0 (Cumulative Grade Point Average CGPA) it is doing what you  are supposed to do at the right time and doing the right thing at the right time. You know many students will just go to Library and just read but the question is, are you reading the right thing? What submits the result is you going to class, doing assignments and exams. So if you can obviously have an A in exam obviously you have a 5.0 (CGPA). So what are the things that actually facilitate you passing your exams? It is the question your lecturer probably gives you. Answering the question in the right way, in the way that the lecturer wants to see it not the way you want to write it actually helps out in winning some things. And not just rushing to read, you can ride on the backs of people that have done it and not be proud. And understand that you are a different person. Like when I was young they said nobody had ever had an A in FSC 102 (Physics Practical) in Systems (Engineering) and am like ok. They said the best person they have had never had it. I said ok, that is them,I’M A DIFFERENT PERSON, WE HAVE A DIFFERENT PATH! So I believe even if someone has not done it, someone can pick it up to do it, that is the truth but then it is really not necessarily for show because I stopped reading because I wanted to pass in year 3. Rather I started reading because I needed to teach people because how will you be in a class and will not understand the course. Eighty percent of the class will not understand the course, so it was very terrible all these things. So sometimes you just have to read because you have to teach people. Sometimes you just the call ‘come and teach me something’ from a friend and that thing you have not read it. So I had a lot of that and I had to teach them on the spot.
Q: As a young black woman, where you are in a field that has very few black women, in fact very few women to be precise, what will you say to the young girl out there that maybe doesn’t even want to go into engineering? Maybe wants to go into another field but she is scared of a field where it is mainly male dominated. What will you tell them?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Engineering is mainly not for the males so to speak, it is for both genders. I did not really see anything we did that was solely for males. Ok probably when we were in year one and had to cut with a saw. You can obviously do it. It actually just depends to the field that you are actually going into. There are some fields that probably are very mechanical but then let me just put it has this – Anyone that wants to come for engineering that is a female can obviously come, because it is actually sweeter, better. I didn’t like medicine, because I didn’t like reading. I like calculations. So that is the best place to go to! So if your best subject is Mathematics and Further Mathematics Engineering is the best place for you. So it is not hard labour like people use to think engineering is. In fact it is more technical. You can be in engineering and you are a programmer and obviously programming involves thinking and everybody can think. Either you are a male or a female. So there is no gender inequality.
Q: Tell us a little bit about your background? What helped you maybe when you were in secondary school, in primary school?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Ok let me say it all started from secondary school. I had a very good family. My father is a Jack-o-meter
Q You dad was a Jack-o-meter?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Meaning he could read till day break. Do you understand?
Q: So people don’t know the meaning of Jack-o-meter
(Laughter)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: So that atmosphere was always at home that you had to be serious. In Primary School, you don’t eat when you get home until you have done your assignment, you get what I mean, they were strict. Secondary school was a bit kind of, ok let me put it like this when I finished primary school, I felt my primary school was not that ok for me because I was taught some things that were not right, not right, not really correct like that. So I just felt I was duller, probably entering secondary school I felt I should be the worst student. In fact I liked staying at the back. I like being the person that they will flog. I like just being very naughty. In fact I was very very naughty.
(Laughter)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Until somebody came to meet me that you are always staying at the back why don’t you come to the front. One of the reasons was because the people – the grade of people that entered secondary school with me were from very high and reputable school. You hear Apata Memorial High School.
(Laughter)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: The lecturer, the teacher rather probably said I should spell something and I started following from that experience. One day, the teacher asked a kind of question, and I was a very very shy person that doesn’t like talking in class. I knew the answer but I didn’t like to talk. The teacher just picked on me that I should answer the question and I was like ok. After a while,  I answered the question and they said I was correct and I was happy. As in, that day in class changed the orientation that you can actually be successful, you can actually do it.
Oyindamola Omotuyi: The Lord had it that I passed through a particular path. My secondary school was all beautiful. I had first position from Junior Secondary School 1(J.S.S 1) to Senior Secondary School 3 (S.S.S 3)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: So coming to University was just a continuation of what had happened.
Q: Do you sometimes feel like a lot of students are not doing well in school or are not doing as well as they should be doing in school because they have not gotten that re-affirmation from people that they can do it? That they can achieve greatness, that they are smart.
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Sometimes encouragement is always good. Some people probably in their family get discouraged. Especially when they compare you with somebody, so even your little effort, even if it is been seen and been encouraged that is a way of getting people to do better.
Q: What secondary school did you attend?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: SMA college.
Q: SMA college, where was that located?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Jakande Estate
Q: So you grew up in Jakande Estate?
Oyinda Omotuyi: No I didn’t but I started my secondary school, is it secondary school or primary school? I was in primary school when I was in (Jakande) Estate but I didn’t start my primary school in estate, I started my primary school in Ejigbo (Lagos)
Q: So what made you pick Systems Engineering of all the Engineering degrees?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Ok first of all I wanted to go for Engineering and I wanted to go for a course that I will be doing computer anything computer and anything electrical. Systems Engineering is a combination and fortunately it is only University of Lagos that is offering the course in Nigeria then.
Q: So you actually picked systems engineering?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Yes
Q: On your Joint Admission Matriculation (JAMB) Form?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Yes
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Yes like Wow!
(Laughter)
Q: So tell me about that JAMB experience. Did you have to do JAMB three times like everybody else?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Ok. The year I did JAMB was a year of examinations, that is what I will call it. January was pre-mock, February was Mock, March was Mock, April to May was West African Senior School Certificate Exam (WASSCE), June was JAMB Exam, June to July was Nigerian Examination Council (NECO) Exam. Then September to October was General Certificate of Education (GCE) then October was resumption into UNILAG!
: Wow!
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Yea so it was a year of examinations! So obviously I did JAMB only once and I scored 315 (out of 400)
Q: You just mentioned 315 like…
Oyindamola Omotuyi: like?
Q: Like it was 206?
(Both Laugh)
Q: So JAMB 315, a primary school that nobody knows, it sounds like a story of greatness out of a low-key background?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Exactly, so everything started from primary four. I know I was best in my class four. Also I worked on challenge in my secondary school.
Q: What is challenge?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Ok. There was a day they called a girl to our assembly ground and they were like this girl, she was in Junior Secondary School Three (J.S.S 3) celebrating WAEC for J.S.S 3 and all that and they were like this girl, I think I was in J.S.S 1. This girl had first position first term then second position second term I was like why is there an A.C current?
Q: You understood A.C current back then?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: No I didn’t
Q: Ok
Oyindamola Omotuyi: But later I wanted a D.C current, constant something. And there are sometimes it is not just about a first position. Just like UNILAG – 70 and 100 is still an A but you won’t know the gravity of all those things until you probably go abroad. Abroad,  A is like 90 to 94
Q: Yes
Oyindamola Omotuyi: 90 to 94 is actually
Seun Noibi & Oyinda Omotuyi: A (minus)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: So like that, my sister was just calling one day and asking is it possible for someone to get 10/10 in all those subjects? I was like hmmn just try it out
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Secondary School was just trying lots of things out but University was majorly based on faith, you know…wisdom of God.
Q: So now back to that faith. You graduated still with your 5.0 CGPA and if I remember correctly you were an executive in your fellowship for the last two or three years?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Last two years
Q: How did you balance faith and school?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Ok. Let me put it like this, year 4 was a bit ok but I was both assistant in both places
Q: Assistant in what?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Assistant Drama Coordinator in RCF UNILAG, Assistant Academic and Library Secretary in Engineering Student Christian Association (I.G @escaunilag)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: So I was basically just an assistant. And obviously you know the right thing to do at the right time, so just do it! That is the truth. Let me put it like this, everybody has twenty four hours, it just depends on the way you use it. And there is always a direction there is always a leading, there is always a structure. I sometimes know when it is time to read. You just know. But year five was very tedious, trust me I was actually at a point let it just end, trust me.
(Laughter)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: At a point I had to miss classes and all of that.
Oyindamola Omotuyi: But then thank God for, when I say thank God for some people, thank God for them mehn. They were just there and do what I am supposed to be doing. So probably, sometimes I didn’t have to cook.
SeQun Noibi: So final year you were vice president at RCF?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Yes. Vice-President at RCF (I.G @rcfunilag) and Academic and Library at ESCA (I.G @escaunilag)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Engineering Student Christian Association
Q: You said a lot about faith; you said a lot about God, do you think you could have still achieved this if you were not a Christian?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: For me, I would say that it won’t have been possible
Q: Why is that?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: For me I don’t know how to be if there is a Life without God. I don’t know, trust me. No, don’t trust me
(Laughter)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Trust me I don’t know. I just know that if there was no God along the way I would have given up. I had breaking points, three breaking points. All of them were electrical courses, electrical, electrical then computer engineering. They were breaking points, a day before my exam I would see test result 9/30. A day before the exam!
(Laughter)
Oyindamola Omotuyi: What should I read for the exam? Or you see 5/40. What else? If it weren’t for God this wouldn’t have happened that is the simple truth.
Q: The reason why I ask that is we have to be truthful I’m a student also here too and you see a lot of people that are actively with God on campus but it is not really showing in their Grade Point Average (GPA). To those people what will you tell them? They are serving God but it is not showing in their GPA
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Ok, it really depends. Let me put it like this. For you to have a very good GPA sometime your department is a factor. Do you understand? I will rather say as long as you have done your own part and it is glaring that this is what you are supposed to do and this is what you are supposed to get and this is what the Lord will have you get, fine it doesn’t have to be a first class, doesn’t have to be a second class. So in fact if I had finished with a 5.0 CGPA without God probably I will be miserable. So what I’m saying is that it is not really about the GPA being high or low. Let it be glaring that, I have done my own part, then it now look like oh it was the lecturer, it was the department. And some cases like that, the Lord will leave it like that probably just to tell you some things. The Lord is not interested in you failing. The Lord is interested in you passing. Let me put it like that.
Q: Now finally, thanks so much for your time. Future plans, what are you planning on doing?
Oyindamola Omotuyi: Systems Engineering is a very good course, in fact it has very great prospect. Probably Nigeria has not yet gone through or sourced out its value in Nigeria, because the three major aspects in UNILAG are control, operation research and robotics. I think I missed one, Simulation and modelling. So now these areas have not been explored and there are a lot of areas. If you ask me what I will like to do I would rather like to explore in all of those areas. They are a lot, computer vision, my project was based on robotics, a drone and all of that, so there a lot of prospects. Going abroad for masters is a good idea. It is a good prospect to be able to go into this field very well.
