BREAKING News: ALL HOSTEL PAYMENTS IN IMSU OFF-CAMPUS ALLIANCES SHOULD BE SUSPENDED FOR NOW — IMSU DEAN STUDENT AFFAIRS

In what is a swift reaction to the outcry and discontent of IMSU students and student leaders to the outrageous increase in hostel fees of hostels in IMSU off-campus alliances, the Dean Student Affairs of the institution Prof. Martins Uchenna has directed that all payments by students be suspended forthwith.

Making this crucial directive today at a high-powered comrades meeting organized by IMSU student leaders to address the issue, the erudite academic said the suspension takes effect immediately and will be in effect for a week.

At the meeting which was a roll call of all comrades of various capacities including the 2019/2020 IMSU SUG Executives led by Comr. Oguike Arinze Collins, Legislative members led by Hon. Mayor Chikwe, alliance presidents, faculty executives and so forth the Dean maintained that it is insensitive on the part of the landlords to increase the rents outrageously as that COVID-19 happened wasn’t the fault of the students or theirs either.

He maintained that students shouldn’t be made to bear the bulk of financial implications of a pandemic.

It is of essence to note that the Dean will have a roundtable meeting with all off-campus hostels landlords just as he called for a meeting of all hostel presidents to his office on Monday, January 25, 2021 by 10:00am on the same issue.

It is therefore noteworthy that no IMSU student should be harassed, thrown out, victimized or threatened into paying any increased rent pending the outcome of the landlord’s meeting with the Dean Student Affairs.

Us, Election

Who wins, Trump or Biden?

thenationonlineng.net

KEY FACTS

  • Total voters – 255,200,373
  • Votes so far – 97,665,370
  • Electoral College delegates – 538
  • Needed to win – 270 delegates

Who leads the free world in the next four years?

Americans will decide this Tuesday between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

There will also be governorship election in 11 states and two territories. All 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested as well as 35 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate.

In the last few days up till Monday, the candidates were on the road, wooing voters in battleground states – Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Florida.

The election has been projected to record the highest-ever turn-out in decades – if not the past century – with a surge of new voters producing the most divisive electorate in America history.

But it may be marred by violence especially should President Trump lose.

Reports indicated that authorities and business owners embarked on enhanced security measures over possible violence related to the high-stakes.

In Washington, D.C., shopfronts are boarding up their windows with plywood or putting up other makeshift barriers, some of them stretching nearly entire blocks.

Fences have been erected around the White House, where demonstrators gathered Saturday night to protest against President Donald Trump. Card-boards on which anti-Trump slogans were written on the fences.

Similar scenes of businesses protecting their properties also appeared on the streets in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

In Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot asked residents to express their political opinions in a safe way.

“What I’m encouraging people to do is to express themselves but do it in a way that honours our traditions. “We don’t have the right to take out our frustration, our anger, on someone else.”

Rich Guidice, executive director of the city’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications, in a news conference said Chicago “is taking an all-hands-on-deck approach to planning for Election Day security arrangement”.

“We have been performing drills and holding workshops to be ready to respond to any situation or possible event that should occur in this city before, on or after Election Day.”

While officials said there have been no credible threats of violence on or after the election, they could not stress more about being vigilant against those incidents.

Terence Monahan, chief of department for the New York Police Department, said last week while outlining election security plans “it’s no secret that this election is more contentious than in years past.’’

Washington D.C. police have limited leave for officers to ensure adequate staff.

It said the District spent 100,000 dollars on less-lethal munitions and chemical irritants for riot control to replenish a stockpile depleted by clashes over the summer.

Police advisory signs were put up on light poles along streets adjacent to the White House, prohibiting the use of firearms during demonstrations starting Saturday and extending for five days after the election.

Shutdown D.C., an activist group in the nation’s capital, is organising weeks-long demonstrations starting today, calling on participants to join in on election night as an event is planned at the Black Lives Matter Plaza, which is a block away from the White House.

The event will include a giant screen showing election results, as well as performances by bands playing Washington’s signature go-go music.

U.S. stocks were sharply higher yesterday morning, one day before Election Day, when Wall Street expects Biden will win the presidency and Democrats will retake the Senate and maintain control of the House.

Stocks started the day off with a bang in New York, retracing some of their losses from last week, when they recorded their worst week since March.

The Dow traded 1.9 per cent, or some 510 points, higher around mid-morning. The broader S&P 500 rose 1.8 per cent, and the Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.4 per cent.

Youth’s participation in politics.

Politics is a methodology and activities associated with running a political candidates

Politics is typically regarded as a space for politically experienced men and while women are often disadvantaged in accumulating experience to run for office , young people are systematically marginalized because of their age , limited opportunities, and projected lack of experience.

As the increased political participation of women benefits society as a whole the presence of young people in decision making positions benefits all citizens and not just youth . The inter-parliamentary union (ipu) reports that people between the ages of 20 and 44 make-up 57% of the worlds voting age population but 26% of the world’s members of parliament (mps) . Young people under 30 represent 1.9% of the world’s mps and more than 80% of the world upper house of parliament have no mps aged under 30 .

While young people often play central and catalyzing roles in movements for democracy around the world , they are less engaged than older generations in voting and party activism .

Recognizing the potential of youth , the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) developed it’s first ever (youth strategy ,2014-2017) , called Empowered youth , sustainable future .

In line with the UN system wide action plan on 2013 which calls on Young generation to become more involved and more committee in development processes.

Where are the youths in Nigeria .

This set of factors has led to a situation in which Nigeria under the age of 35 are largely absent from government.

In the colonial era , young Nigerians led in the struggle for Independence .

As early as 1944, Nmandi Azikiwe in his 30s found the National council of Nigeria and the cameroun ( NCNC) meanwhile obafemi Awolowo , Tafawa Belawa , Almadu Bello and Samuel Akintola and many others in their 20s and 30s rose to prominence through their activism

After independence in 1960 , however, this trend began to dissipate. The golden era was not replaced with new young leader’s and by the 1980 , there were only a few politicians under 40.

At same time , youth movements calling for democracy and human right were forcibly clamped down by the military regime of the day .
