Nigerian Journalist Calls Out EbonyLifeTV CEO Mo Abudu For Allegedly Asking Artists To Sign ‘Slave Contract’



Mo-Abudu
It is no news that a number of Nigeria have their employees sign all sorts of ridiculous contracts and it appears that one of them has been allegedly exposed and revealed. Kayode Ogundamisi, a popular journalist and social commentator took to his Twitter page to slam, Ebony Life TV CEO, Mo Abudu over its ‘ridiculous’ slave contract which totally takes the right of any artist that auditions for any of its programme.
The contract asks the person auditioning to waive every moral right they have over their creative talents, as long as it is affiliated with Ebony Life TV. They are asked to forfeit their rights as protected by the Performance Protection Rights of 1967.
In other words, once you sign the contract, Ebony Life owns your talent and can use it any how they deem it fit. You will not be able to complain or negotiate because you have relinquished every right (protected by the national and international copyright and royalty laws) you have over your talent.

Unilag students crawl under gate to vacate premises



The management of the University of Lagos has suspended all academic activities on the campus.

A statement on Friday said the decision was reached at a meeting of the university senate.

It said, “The Senate of the University of Lagos, at an emergency meeting on Thursday, April 7, 2016, considered the situation on campus occasioned by the ongoing agitation of the student body over poor electricity and water supply in the community, and the difficulty faced by a large number of students living off campus to attend classes as a result of the fuel crisis.
“Senate noted that the problem of poor municipal services is a national issue that governments at both state and federal levels are addressing.

“However, in order to forestall a further breakdown of law and order on campus, Senate resolved to take the following decisions until the situation normalises:  All academic activities on campus are hereby suspended with immediate effect. The university is therefore closed with immediate effect.”

The statement ordered that students living on the campus should vacate their halls of residence, adding that no student should remain in the halls of residence after 10a.m on Friday.

During a visit to the campus, Saturday PUNCH observed that no fewer than 15 police vans and two armoured tanks barricaded the two major roads leading to the school.

The school main gate was shut as scores of students were prevented from going out by some of the student leaders, who insisted that the school was not closed.

Some of the undergraduates, however, began scaling the fence and sneaking through the opening under the gate in desperate bids to get out.

Later, the students opened the gate and said those who wanted to leave could do so.

The President of the University of Lagos Students Union, Mohammed Olaniyan, said the management ordered the police to arrest him and the school’s Public Relations Officer, Jumai Fabuyi, without any reason.

While Olaniyan was said to have been rough-handled and his phones seized, Fabuyi was said to have been beaten and injured in the hand by the police.

The ULSU president said the protest, which started on Wednesday, was peaceful, adding that the students were surprised when they saw the police and armoured tanks at the school’s gate.

He said, “We started the protest on Wednesday at 2pm at the amphitheatre and we moved round the school. We went to see the Dean of Students Affairs, and then to the Senate House to see the Vice Chancellor. There were some issues we had been asking the management to talk about, but they had been running away.

“When we were not attended to on Wednesday, we continued on Thursday morning. The congressmen and women asked to see the VC, that if I could not answer their questions, then the VC should address them. We moved round again and the management failed to attend to us.

“The issue of power is a national challenge and it does not affect UNILAG alone. We are aware of this. But we have questioned the management of the school on generators. There are four spaces for generators on the campus, but we only have two that provide 30 per cent of power to the school. We asked about the two remaining generators and why they had not been moved in after they had been paid for since December, 2015. But we didn’t get any answer.

“On the issue of water, we have UNILAG Venture that produces UNILAG bread and UNILAG water. A bag of pure water on campus is N200, whereas we buy outside for N100. The UNILAG bread is N250, but we buy outside for N200. We asked questions from the school management why other people are not allowed to bring in water and bread. But the school refused to answer us. We say no to monopoly.”

The student leader said the school was not closed, urging his colleagues to return to school on Monday.

But the UNILAG Public Relations Officer, Toyin Adebule, said the students’ claims were false, adding that the university planned to have its press conference to address the issues.

He said, “It is a lie. All they said is not true. We will have our press conference soon where the Dean of Students Affairs will address all the issues. You will be briefed on it soon.”

EWOH: How school proprietor raped me – Girl, 4



A four-year-old girl identified only as Choice, has revealed how she was allegedly raped by the proprietor of her school, Mr. Elias Oyeke.

The little girl told one of our correspondents that 42-year-old Oyeke, who is the Proprietor of Victory International School, Mararba, Nasarawa State, raped her on several occasions and then told her not to tell anyone or she would get into trouble.

Choice, who is a nursery one pupil, said Oyeke told her that if her parents found out that she had lost her virginity, she should tell them that it was her male colleague who is also four-years-old that was responsible.
The victim said, “Uncle Elias spread my legs, covered my mouth and told me to shut up. He will (sic) put me on a chair and lap me and he will start doing it. He will (sic) then give me sweets.”

The mother of the victim, Esther, said she started suspecting something was amiss when her daughter insisted that she would not allow anyone to bathe her sometime in February.

Esther said one day, she insisted that she would bathe her and that was when she discovered severe injuries around Choice’s private parts.

She said her daughter initially lied that it was her classmate, Gabriel, that forcefully penetrated her and so she took her daughter to the school the next day.

While fighting back tears, Esther said, “I usually dropped my daughter at school around between 7am and 7.25am, before school resumed proper and I always handed her over to Mr. Elias. However, after some time, my daughter started behaving strangely as she prevented me from bathing her.

“I didn’t know that she was acting under the instructions of Elias. One day, I insisted that I must bathe her so I forced her legs open and while I was washing there, she started crying and screaming in pain.

“When her father got back, I opened her private part and saw that it was wide and very red. I knew that she could not have sustained such an injury at home so I took her to the school the next morning to confront Mr. Elias. Elias began to shake but denied knowledge of what happened.”

Esther said Elias urged her not to tell anyone so as not to tarnish the image of his school and then took them to a pharmacy.

Esther added, “On getting to the pharmacy, we were told that it was impossible for a four-year-old boy to do such damage to the girl’s private part. At the pharmacy, I kept on asking my daughter who injured her but she would just look at Elias and keep quiet.

“Then, I began to suspect that he knew something. I then took my daughter away and asked her to tell me the truth. She finally confessed that it was the school proprietor that had been raping her.

“Choice said Elias started by putting his fingers in her vagina. She said anytime it was time for break, Elias would take her to the school’s backyard, take off her pants, put her on a chair and start having sex with her. He usually gave her sweets. After doing it, he cleaned her up with a red handkerchief.”

It was learnt that the victim was subsequently taken to two hospitals where it was confirmed that she had been defiled.

A copy of the doctor’s report signed by Dr.Nwabueze Daniel of the Nyanya General Hospital, read in part, “On vaginal examination of the four-year-old girl, there is a sign of penetration as the hymen is not intact. It is a case of rape.”

The father of the victim, Pedro, who is a security guard, said he reported the matter at the Mararba Police Station.

He, however, said he was not satisfied with the manner the police handled the matter as the suspect was released on bail before he was re-arrested and taken to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Lafia.

Speaking with journalists at his Abuja office, the lawyer of the family, Mr. S. O Onoja (SAN), called on the police authorities to transfer the case to the Office of the Inspector-General of Police’s Monitoring Unit, Abuja.

Onoja said it was unfortunate that policemen could demand money from his client despite being the victim. He also urged the Nasarawa government to shut the school immediately.

The Police Public Relation Officer, Nasarawa state police command, ASP IsmailaUmaruNuman, on Friday confirmed the incident in a telephone interview.

“The command is aware of the case and the suspect had since been charged to court for prosecution and after which he was remanded in Lafia prison,” he added.

Fayose condemns Buhari’s $2bn Chinese loan plan



The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has flayed President Muhammadu Buhari’s scheduled trip to China to allegedly borrow $2bn (N1.84tn) loan to finance the 2016 budget.
Describing the move as an attempt to mortgage the future of Nigeria and its people, Fayose said the 2016 budget was not a reflection of the present economic reality in the country.
“By the time they borrow N1.84tn to fund their N6.06tn budget, I wonder how Nigeria will survive in 2017 when the Federal Government will be servicing debt with about 50 per cent of its budget,” Fayose said in a statement signed on Friday in Ado-Ekiti by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
He added that the budget was planned to fail.
He said, “In elementary economics, you don’t propose to spend more when your income reduces and I still can’t understand this Buharinomics in which Nigeria is going to spend N6.06tn with crude oil bench mark of $38 per barrel when the country budget was N4.5tn in 2015 when crude oil bench mark was $53 per barrel.”
The governor said since Buhari claimed that he had recovered and still recovering trillions of Naira looted from the treasury and over N3tn saved from the Treasury Single Account, he asked the President to fund the 2016 budget with the recovered fund.
Stressing that he was alerting Nigerians of the danger in the Federal Government’s plan to fund the 2016 budget with loan, the governor said, “Tomorrow, it will be said of me that I did not keep silent when Nigeria was being mortgaged to unnecessary debt.”
He warned that with the proposed N1.84tn borrowing, $2bn of which the President, according to him, is already going to borrow in China, the nation may soon be going the way of Greece because Nigeria will be borrowing N5bn per day for the next 365 days.
Fayose said, “If your income was N200, 000 per month last year and your expenditure was N195, 000 per month; does it make any economic sense for you to propose to spend N300, 000 per month this year that your income has reduced to N120, 000?
“Only President Buhari can explain to Nigerians what manner of Economic theory encourages borrowing of N1.84tn to fund a N6tn budget. As for me, it is nothing but a voodoo economic theory and Nigerians must take note that the income that should accrue to them in five years’ time is about to be spent in one year by the Buhari’s government.”

School where prostitutes assist male students to get marks




There is only one option for the female students to get an A grade in their courses — sleep with the male lecturer taking the course or refuse to do so and keep failing.
It’s either sex or no marks.
For a male student, because he is sexually unattractive to the lecturer, the only way to bail out himself is to hire a lady who will sleep with the concerned lecturer on his behalf in order to pass the course.
Sexual harassment, especially of the female students by male lecturers, is perhaps not a new thing in tertiary institutions in Nigeria and globally, with many people tagging it as the “greatest education epidemic” ever known.
 But in Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo State, one of the first four federal polytechnics established in the country — in 1963 — frustrated students told our correspondent the extent some randy male lecturers go before they could pass them in their courses.
“The better ones among the lecturers give us the option of paying by cash for the course or finding a lady who will sleep with them on our behalf before we can pass. Passing a course costs us between N10,000 and N20,000,” a Higher National Diploma student of the Department of Accountancy, simply called Alex, told Saturday PUNCH on the telephone.
However, the downside to choosing to pay by cash rather than sex, according to Alex, is that the student can never get more than a C grade.
He continued, “Paying by cash is for those who want just a pass. But if I find a girl who will sleep with the lecturer on my behalf, I’ll get an A, for sure. I’ll get at least 90 per cent in the course, even if I write nothing exceptional in the exam. This option of paying with money instead of sex only comes from about one or two of the lecturers out of 10.
“Some of the lecturers tell us point blank that they don’t need our money. They will tell us to find them ladies who will sleep with them before we can pass their courses. They teach very important courses, so you cannot ignore them. They will keep failing us until we’re given notice of withdrawal from the institution. It’s something that has happened to a friend who claimed to be a born-again Christian. The guy wrote the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination afresh and is now at the University of Benin.
“So this is what we guys do: If I have a loyal girlfriend and I beg her, she can sleep with the lecturer on my behalf. The lecturer picks the hotel of his choice on the day we’ve agreed. I will book for it. I’ll order for the meal he’ll eat before the action. He will sleep with my girl and give me my A. I’ll give the lady my name so that the lecturer will know she’s from me.
“But if my girlfriend says no, then I have to hire someone else. I will get a prostitute from outside, pay her, book for the hotel the lecturer has picked, order for their meal and then I get an A in his course. I have done this for three lecturers now.
 “The reality is we can’t pass their courses by mere brilliance. Only one or two lecturers are sane in my department. They don’t ask for anything. We read hard to pass their own courses. For the rest, sex is the key. This is why most of us don’t fidget when exam period approaches. We know the way out. The lecturers have shown us.”
Another male student in the Department of Accountancy who spoke with Saturday PUNCH, simply named Dickson, in HND 1, said he usually budgets some money right from the beginning of the semester to hire prostitutes who will sleep with the randy lecturers on his behalf.

Joseph

He said, “I love my girlfriend and can’t allow her to sleep for me. Some other guys do that. They beg their girlfriends to help them. It’s not a coded thing. We all discuss it. The prostitutes make serious money from us, all because of the extent these lecturers have gone.
 “Apart from the money my parents give me, I hustle on my own in the school. If I want to pass a course now, I need to budget at least N20,000 for it — N7,000 for hotel booking, N3,000 for meal and N10,000 to pay the prostitute.”
Asked how he hustles on the campus, he said he co-founded a computer centre outside the school premises from which he makes some money.
Alex and Dickson told Saturday PUNCH that the randy lecturers usually pick the expensive hotels in the city to enjoy the pleasure at the cost to the students.
 “Some of the hotels are along the Benin-Okene Expressway, Ekpoma-Auchi Road, Benin-Auchi Road, etc. The least amount for booking is N5,000,” they said.
 A lawyer and social commentator in Lagos, Bisoye Odubona, said the “devilish practice” the lecturers had caused the students to indulge in could turn them into riff-raff.
He said, “How will a student get N20,000 to pay the ‘total package’ on a course, all because of a randy lecturer? Don’t be surprised that these students might be stealing laptops and smartphones of their colleagues and selling them in order to raise money just to get an A.
“I know sexual harassment happens in tertiary institutions, just like everywhere else, but I never knew it had gone to this level. These are the lecturers turning our graduates to riff-raff. They deserve a cruel punishment if they are ever caught and I hope they are.”

All-expenses paid sex nights
According to some other students who spoke with Saturday PUNCH, sex is the only bailout option from these randy lecturers’ snares.
 But even the sex option doesn’t come cheap.
 “There was a lecturer then, a very randy one, who taught us Public Sector Accounting in HND 1. That was around 2013. He would tell us openly in the class, ‘I don’t want your money. I am richer than you. Give me a girl and you get your A,’” an ex-student of the department, simply known as Sam, who now works in Port Harcourt, told our correspondent.
He added, “There is a popular hotel along the Benin-Auchi Road where these lecturers used to tell us to book when they wanted to sleep with the ladies we gave them. It is one of the most expensive hotels to rent in the city. It’s also a bit distant from the school, so they would not be seen, I guess. They chose whatever hotel they wanted and we would pay for it. It’s an overnight session. An all-expenses paid sex night for them.
“Some other lecturers gave us two options to get good marks — sex or money. If you chose sex, you were sure of getting grade A in the course. If you chose money, you would get C, D or E, depending on how much you paid. The least was N10,000 per course when I was in HND 1 and N15,000 for HND 2 students. Out of the 10 courses I offered in HND 1, three of the lecturers wanted sex only. Four others would give you the option of sex or money, depending on the grade you wanted.
“In HND 2, I offered nine courses. Five of the lecturers taking the courses were highly randy. Only two were good lecturers. They would give you marks according to what you wrote. Those two were highly disciplined. There was a particular lecturer who would tell us to come to class (even on Sundays) at so-so time. He would be in class 10 minutes before the time and start teaching empty class if no student was around. He would be talking to the board and empty seats until we arrived. He was very strict, but I liked him.”
Apart from the Accountancy Department, Saturday PUNCH also gathered that this practice also happens in some other departments, for example, the departments of business administration and management, public administration, banking and finance, and so on.
 “It’s only that the practice was rampant in Accounting Department. Everybody knew that,” said Moses Franklin, a former student of the school who graduated in 2014 and now works and lives in Lagos.
 He added, “The situation is just not too obvious in some other departments. If you sleep with the lecturer, you get a good A, like 90 per cent, even if you know nothing. Sex is their food. They cannot do without it. They are cursed with it.

Alex

“I remember a certain lecturer then, one of the randy ones, who was paralysed in an accident while I was in HND 1. God was merciful on him, he didn’t die. But despite that, the man came into the class in a wheelchair one day and said, ‘The fact that I’m paralysed doesn’t mean I’m impotent. I can still use my hands.’ From the way he was making gestures, he meant he could still use his hands to fondle ladies’ breasts and buttocks; a very mad man.”
“Sleep for two”
This is a slogan some students of the school have coined from the situation, as explained by Joseph, another HND 1 student of the Department of Accountancy of the school.
He narrated how it works, “For the lecturers who want only sex to pass us, they demand from the ladies as well. Any lady who refuses to agree is frustrated by the lecturer. But for us guys, since they can’t have sex with us, they ask us to bring somebody that will do the job for us.
 “We hire prostitutes to do the job for us. We rent the hotel room, pay for the lecturer’s meal, then pay the prostitute some cash, depending on our agreement.
 “But surprisingly, some female students in our department are also exploiting this situation to make money for themselves. They tell us not to go outside to hire prostitutes. Instead of paying prostitutes, they ask us to let them assist us and we pay them. But in the process, the female student, apart from doing the male student a favour, also does herself one. She sleeps with the lecturer for the guy, for her own sake too and she still gets paid by the male student.
 “It’s called ‘sleep for two.’ The lady helps both the guy and herself at once. Both of them get As. But if the male student has a loyal girlfriend, she does the job freely, except that the guy still pays for the hotel booking and meal.”
“This is highly sickening,” an educationist in Port Harcourt, Dr.  Fidelia Peters, simply said, not knowing what else to say when she heard about the situation.She only added, “Those lecturers deserve to be placed in front of the firing squad and be got rid of. All of them will perhaps be blaming Nigeria’s woes on corruption, but look at it, are they not also corrupt?
 “Talking about eliminating corruption, this is where it should start from. How can we improve or be intellectually sound if we are being taught by these sorts of lecturers? How can our education system improve? Not sure this is possible.”
The President of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, Mr. Usman Dutse, said members of the body were always being cautioned against extorting and sexually victimising students.
“The students should report to the management. If they want the situation to be addressed, they have to report such lecturers. If perhaps they are afraid, they could report under condition of anonymity and such lecturers will be dealt with. But when they keep quiet, nothing much can be done. We hear these things too and we usually caution our members,” he said.

Sleeping for marks: Ex-female student’s account
While male students hire prostitutes, female students have to sleep with the randy lecturers themselves or they risk failing. For them, there is no option of hiring a prostitute or paying with cash in order to pass.
 A former student of the school, simply called Mercy, who graduated in 2014, narrated her experience to our correspondent in Lagos.
 She said, “All along, I was a very serious student, and of course, I should. I was sent to the school to study, not to sleep with lecturers to get marks.
“I didn’t do my National Diploma in Auchi Poly. I only did my HND there. I was not exposed to that kind of practice in my previous school. Probably it was not rampant there. When I got to Auchi Poly, I didn’t know those lecturers had set their eyes on me until when it was time to do my project. All the courses I offered while in the school, I never got more than a C, maybe in one or two. I did have lots of Ds and Es, and sometimes Fs, despite studying and writing well. That is why I graduated with just a pass from the school.
“When it was time for project, I never knew why this particular lecturer who taught us Public Sector Accounting in HND 1 was frustrating me. He also took us Financial Management in HND 2. He was my project supervisor. I submitted 10 project topics to him, but he didn’t approve any. I started submitting project topics to him right from the beginning of the first semester in HND 2, but he didn’t approve any until it got to mid-second semester. It got to a point when I was frustrated and felt like committing suicide. So I approached him one day, ‘Sir, I don’t even have any project topic idea. Please tell me what topic to work on.’ He replied, ‘You’re funny. It’s because you don’t know what to do like your colleagues. Go and ask what your friends are doing. Have you ever come to greet me in my office?’ I became dumb, couldn’t utter a word. I made up my mind never to succumb to his pressure. That’s why he approved my project topic in the middle of second semester when most students had gone far ahead of me in writing almost all the chapters of theirs.
“When he finally approved it, I started rushing through it. He approved the last chapter of my project two days before the day of defence. I was helpless, but there was nothing I could do but to accept my fate. On the day he approved it, I had to sleep in a business centre in the school to write, type, print, make photocopies and spiral-bind it. I couldn’t eat. I didn’t take my bath. I slept in the school till the morning of the day of defence. I couldn’t go to the hostel for two days. In the morning of the day of defence, I showed up and tried my best. After my presentation, he shook my hand and refused to let it go. He was practically fondling with my fingers. He asked me, ‘You think you are smart, right?’ It was when the final results came that I knew what he was talking about.
 “Other lecturers who took us Managerial Economics, Accounting Theory and Practice and some others were like that. Very randy people. The lecturer teaching us Taxation had his only special way. His case was different from others. No matter what you wrote, you could never get more than a C grade. He could set his eyes on and sleep with a female student, but that didn’t translate to special marks. His was not a quid-pro-quo situation. We were always scared of him. He was a great womaniser.
 “If a lady refused to give him sex, he would frustrate her. If he saw a guy hanging out frequently with the lady he had set his eyes on, he would assume the guy to be the lady’s boyfriend. He then set his eyes on the guy. He would take the guy as his competitor and the reason why the lady refused him. He would frustrate him by failing him over and over again until the guy was given a notice of withdrawal. We ladies used to pray that the man shouldn’t like us.”
 Mercy said she wished she didn’t school in the institution, adding, “but to get an admission is not easy in this country. I am carrying a pass certificate around because of what I passed through in those lecturers’ hands. I do wish sometimes I didn’t school in Nigeria.”
“I tried reporting, but the lecturers would tell us they’re irremovable from the system. They wielded great influence, they claimed. ‘If you like, go and report to the rector, there’s nothing she can do,’ they would say,” she said of the lecturers.
Why students give in
Sexual harassment in tertiary institutions is used as a tool to create a fear of the future in the minds of the students by the lecturers who indulge in it, a psychologist, Mrs. Moyo Owolabi, said.
She said, “The students want good grades to boost their Grade Point Averages, which have an eternal influence on the way they are treated in the job market later in life. Everyone knows that most companies hire based on the academic result a candidate has.
 “If you don’t have a minimum of 2-1, for instance, there are some jobs you cannot apply for. They tell you specifically it’s a minimum of 2-1. So the desperation for good marks will always be there. The lecturers too know this, and they use it to exploit the students. ‘If you want a good score, sleep with me or pay with money.’ That’s what they say. In many tertiary institutions, this is happening.”
The institution’s spokesperson, Mr. Mustapha Oshiobugie, asked students to report the lecturers to the school authorities, vowing that lecturers who harass their students sexually would be sanctioned if found guilty after investigation.
He said, “We hear all these things, but they are false. When we ask students to report such lecturers, they wouldn’t come forward. No lecturer is above the law here, so when students come forward with reports, we will question the lecturer, but they wouldn’t come.
“We tell them that if perhaps they are afraid, they should tell their parents to report on their behalf, but we don’t see anyone. The students can also write us with proof and we will look into the allegations.
“We cannot just question a lecturer without a proof. There are policies in place which allow us to deal with such lecturers, but we need the students to report first, not just carrying rumours about. Our former rector — Dr. (Mrs.) Philipa Idogho — even gave her phone numbers to the students, but they wouldn’t report. And we can’t take on a lecturer based on rumours.
“They have the opportunity to report to even the Dean of Student Affairs, or why do we have him? We encourage our students to avail themselves of the opportunity to report.”
An education advocate in Lagos, Ms Viola Akhigbe, told our correspondent via Twitter that it was high time the authorities set up structures to fight sexual harassment in all forms in the institution.
She said of sexual harassment, “I think it is one of the most horrible developments of our time. In all fairness, some tertiary institutions in Nigeria, as in other parts of the world, have put structures in place to prevent incidences of sexual harassment, such as policies, increased awareness and heavy sanctions. Unfortunately, the effects of these measures have not been significant enough to stop the perpetrators.
“In the first place, we need to see sexual harassment, not as a school problem, but as a societal issue. It is a social crime which requires a whole societal response. Institutions need to be more articulate, decisive, sincere and transparent in their policy provisions and procedures for handling incidences of sexual harassment so that people are not only aware, but can also trust that justice will be served.
“Students themselves have to become smarter in handling such cases. Technology can definitely be helpful here, because evidence is also important. Our society is becoming more alive to issues of social responsibility and technology has been such a blessing. So lecturers, and indeed institutions, should not imagine that they will continue to get away with sexual harassment. It just must stop!”
