I’M HERE TO STAY I BELONG TO CHELSEA- MOURINHO

The Special One has been well
travelled on his journey to global
renown but now insists he is ready to
settle down in the city and club he
loves
Jose Mourinho insists he wants to stay at
Chelsea for a long time and says he has given
no thought to the next step in his managerial
career.
Trophy-laden spells at Stamford Bridge, Porto,
Inter and Real Madrid have established
Mourinho as one of the most respected
coaches in the world, if a slightly nomadic one.
But now managing in west London for the
second time, Mourinho is adamant he is ready
to settle down in his personal and professional
life.
He told London’s Evening Standard: “I’m not
here thinking about my next move because I
don’t want to have a next move. I’m here to
stay. I belong to Chelsea, Chelsea belong to
me.
“I think London is the only place in Europe
where I can keep these little things of life. I
can go to school and wait for my son and
daughter and the parents feel me as another
parent.
“I can go to walk on Sloane Street or Old Bond
Street and if somebody disturbs me it is not an
English person for sure. I can go to a
restaurant, I can go to a cab and the driver be
an Arsenal or Tottenham supporter and he
enjoys speaking with me. This is not possible in
Italy and Spain!”
The full exclusive interview is in tonight’s
Evening Standard which from today is available
across all 33 boroughs in the capital with the
Standard stepping up its print run to 900,000
copies over the next few weeks.

See What Nobel Laureate ‘Wole Soyinka’ Has To Say About Nelson Mandela’s Death

The death of former South African President,
Nelson Mandela, seems to have left Nobel
Laureate, Wole Soyinka, world acclaimed
wordsmith, short of words.
He appears to be so shell-shocked and
devastated.
In a rare and short tribute to former South
African president and anti-apartheid hero,
Nelson Mandela, Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka
had this to say ”
“The soul of Africa has departed, and there is
nothing miraculous left in the world.”
Mr. Mandela passed away Thursday night at
95, throwing the entire world into
unprecedented mourning.
Meanwhile, tributes have continued to pour
following the death of the man who is
credited for reconciling White and Black
South African after the brutal apartheid era
that saw the black majority suffering hideous
human rights abuses under successive white
minority regimes.
Mandela was born in 1918. He was sentenced
to life in imprisonment by the apartheid
government for his armed struggle against a
government infamous for killing unarmed
protesters. He spent 27 years in prison before
was released and elected first black South
African president in 1993.

How Abacha betrayed our plan to overthrow IBB – Col. Umar

The annulment of the June 12, 1993 elections
have continued to be a sticky point in the history
of Nigeria with many stakeholders in
government playing varying roles which led to
its cancellation and eventual arrest and death of
the acclaimed winner of the election, MKO
Abiola.
In this interview, former military governor of
Kaduna state, Col. Abubakar Umar (rtd.) speaks
candidly about their efforts at making sure the
June 12 election was actualised and the role
played by former Head of State, Sani Abacha in
scuttling it.
Read excerpts below:
What do you think is the cause of the Boko
Haram insurgency?
In discussing Boko Haram, I will talk of the
general insecurity in the country. Everything is
happening in other countries and Nigeria is
facing its security challenges; Boko Haram
insurgency, kidnapping, robbery, oil theft, Niger
Delta militancy, phenomenal piracy on our seas
and youth restiveness. And a new development,
which we are not paying attention to is the Fulani
herdsmen/farmers clashes that are engulfing the
northern part of Nigeria. Cattle stealing has led
to many deaths in that part of the country. These
are the major security issues affecting the
country; they are responsible for the seeming
inability to deal decisively with the challenges. It
is difficult to know how to solve a problem if one
doesn’t know the cause.
In the case of Boko Haram, for example, it is
very difficult to understand the inspiration of
their dastardly acts. What could have made a
person approach some people to engage in the
killing of innocent school kids? Why are innocent
people being slaughtered? Where is the religious
justification for throwing bombs at churches and
mosques; killing and maiming worshippers? Such
acts are senselessness and irrational. There are
some supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan
who believe that the Boko Haram insurgency is
the creation of some northern politicians,
claiming that they threatened to make the
country ungovernable for the President; that it’s
the punishment for his failure to abide by the
Peoples Democratic Party’s zoning agreement,
which denied the North the presidency. There
was war during his (Jonathan) completion of late
President Musa Yar’Adua’s tenure and you’ll
agree that this war still persists, with the heavy
impact of the insurgency of the socio-economic
life, particularly in the north-eastern part of
Nigeria where there has been a state of
emergency in the past six months.
There are some northern politicians who benefit
from the insurgency that has taken the live of a
respected elder like Gen. Shuwa; almost led to
the assassination of Shehu of Borno and the Emir
of Kano. Also, there are some northern
politicians who claim that Boko Haram is non-
existent; that if anything, the Jonathan
administration can be using security agents to
tackle them so that he can continue to rule
beyond 2015. With all these senseless killings, it
is difficult to achieve a unity of purpose in the
fight against the insurgency.
When you take the issue of the Niger Delta
militancy, the struggle started with the agitation
for clean environment and equitable distribution
of petroleum resources. But it was hijacked by
criminal elements, whose major motive was
personal enrichment; oil bunkering, pipeline
bursting, which led to further degradation of the
environment. The Niger Delta youths also moved
into piracy and oil theft. One can generalise by
saying that our security challenges are as a
result of corruption at the centre. For example,
most of the Boko Haram members are youths
that could have been valuable to the country;
they have nothing to aspire to and nothing to
lose. As James Baldwin rightly observed, the
most dangerous person is he who has nothing to
lose. When we say there is so much deprivation,
anger, insecurity, and we find them very strange,
the Boko Haram members are used to it. It is a
way of life to them, which they want to fight.
When we look at the Niger Delta militants, they
were chaps that were unemployed and they
watched helplessly how their oil resources were
being cornered by irresponsible, greedy, reckless
and immodest elites. When they (militants) saw
the kind of structures in Abuja, they envied the
elites who had such structures and resorted to
self help through militancy, oil theft and so on.
Of course, in our kind of democracy, about 70 per
cent of our oil revenue is devoted to recurrent
expenditure; it is devoted to indolent public
servants, 85 per cent of which is for salaries and
allowances of members of the National
Assembly. You remember that (the Governor of
the Central Bank of Nigeria) Lamido Sanusi had
to confront the lawmakers.
What is the solution to all these?
The solution is good governance. Our politicians
should be more responsible and bring down the
level of corruption. No country can survive with
the prevailing rot in Nigeria. It is a major cause
for concern. Unfortunately, all our efforts at
confronting the security challenges are breeding
more insecurity in the sense that if we deploy
security forces, especially at the roadblocks,
they demand and accept bribes and let you go.
When you look at the number of security
operatives doing this, you see that it is going to
be very difficult to address the security
challenges.
For the northern part of the country, some
people believe that building more Almajiri
schools will stamp out insurgency. Do you
agree?
Of course, no. It is not just enough to go to
school; when you go to school, you also need to
find employment. They say idle mind is the
devil’s workshop – it is good to send them to
school, they will be enlightened and understand
the message of government. But if they cannot
be gainfully employed, then what you would
have succeeded in educating them in is the
tricks being deployed by public servants to
enrich themselves. I don’t believe that
establishing Almajiri schools is the solution to
our problems per se. It is a misconception of the
situation in the country. Poverty is in all sections
and parts of this country. While you find the
Almajiris in the North, you’ll find kidnappers in
the South. There are areas where there is
prevalence of prostitution and other anti-social
behaviours. Let us first look at poverty
holistically; it is only in the North. Northern
leaders keep crying (poverty) because they want
more resources to accrue to the North. When you
look at the Fulani herdsmen/farmers clash, I
expect the northern governors to sit and look at
ways of creating game reserves for the Fulani.
As long as you allow them to continue to walk
about indiscriminately, there will be conflicts.
Northern states governors should do what has
been done before; they should provide more
graving lands for herdsmen. Also, I was listening
to a commissioner in Plateau State who was
expressing his helplessness in providing security
for the Fulani because, according to him, it was
very difficult for security forces to access the
places the herdsmen were. That is a very weird
thinking. Security personnel should be able to
penetrate all the nooks and crannies of the
country. When you look at kidnappings,
robberies and oil thefts, they’re all about this
culture of get-rich-quick-by-all-mean, which was
created by the political leaders.
Recently, the United States of America
designated Boko Haram and Ansaru as
terrorist groups and Federal Government
welcomed it. Would it solve the problem?
I don’t know what America planned to do with
that declaration. If it means supporting the
Federal Government in the fight against the
insurgency, of course, I will welcome the
development. I know that the US has the
resources and means to engage in war against
insurgency. If that is the idea, then, it is a
welcome development.
Many people believe that a national
conference is the solution to our problems,
including insecurity. What is your take on
this?
With all the noise for and against the
convocation of a national conference or
whatever name it is called, there is a need to
hold one, to satisfy the yearning of its
proponents and to disabuse the minds of those
that believe that the conference would lead to
disintegration. I have never been a proponent of
the national conference for the fact that past
conferences have done nothing to ensure good
governance. I have yet to see a better mode of
representation than the elected members of the
National Assembly. All the federating units are
represented at the Assembly. If these
representatives cannot do what the conference
would do – to sit and discuss pressing issues like
resource control, power sharing, that will amount
to a constitution amendment. The constitution
has a provision for how it is to be amended. This
is to be done by the National Assembly that has
the representatives of all the federating units.
The problem in Nigeria is that our leaders have
refused to apply the good provisions of the
constitution and they will turn around to blame it
all on the constitution. They want to create a
new constitution but unless they have the right
attitude to implement the new constitution, the
constitution will still fail.
I think there is the need for the general public to
ensure we elect the right leadership to ensure
oversight functions. We should hold our leaders
to account. People stand against white elephant
projects like the international airport being
constructed in Kebbi State.
What’s your attitude to the agitation for
power shift to the North?
When you talk of power shift, I don’t believe in it
because there has been no evidence that it
benefits the people. If you take the North, for
instance, there is no sign that power has ever
been in the region. When people talk of poverty,
the people in the North are the most wretched;
when people talk of education, the North is the
most disadvantaged, yet the region held power
for years. So, if this power does any good to a
region, the North won’t suffer any deprivation
today. I think what power shift does is that it is
dangerously dividing Nigeria along ethnic lines.
The politicians are pursing power shift as long as
it satisfies their personal interest, it has nothing
to do with the well-being of the people.
What then should be the right approach?
What I think is that power should reside with
good people and good people abound in all parts
of this country. I want to appeal to our politicians
to desist from pursuing their narrow personal
interest by agitating for power shift, thereby
heating up the polity. They need to remember
that many lives were lost to preserve the unity
of this great country.
How would you score the Federal Government in
terms of tackling insecurity in the land?
President Goodluck Jonathan should be treated
as a war-time President. He needs the support
and cooperation of all well-meaning Nigerians.
This is no time for destructive political
campaigns. Stakeholders should take cognisance
of the fact that conflicts have dire consequences
on the country. Then the President should show
maturity and magnanimity in dealing with
people and issues. Whatever the situation, it will
be nice to see the President, in his next trip
abroad, go with governors like Rotimi Amaechi
and other persons in the opposition.
Talking about scoring, I’ll score the Jonathan
government high up in its effort at tackling
security challenges. Tackling security challenges
can drown a whole government. He has done so
well. If not for the security forces, the whole of
Nigeria today would have been overrun by the
Boko Haram insurgency. So, it is no mean
achievement that this is not happening.
And on the war against corruption…
I think the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission must act decisively. When they
arrested Sule Lamido’s children on account of
money laundering, this kind of thing should go
round the children of other governors. The
agency should not create the impression Sule
Lamido is being targeted because he is a
member of the opposition.
Some Nigerians see Gen. Muhammadu Buhari as
the messiah that will liberate Nigeria from all her
woes. How do you perceive him?
No doubt, Gen. Buhari has a pedigree. There is
no doubt also that he has the requisite for
leadership. For example, he vigorously fought
against corruption. This is one reason why he has
remained a favourite to many Nigerians. But it
will be unfair to a country of over 150 million
people to think that only one person has a
monopoly of such trait.
I will stress that being a successful president will
take more than the ability to prosecute and send
offenders to jail; it requires both character and
intellectual capacity. What Nigeria requires is
zero tolerance for corruption as well as the
intellectual capacity to understand very complex
issues and be able to make the right decisions
and follow up with implementation. To lead a
complex, heterogeneous country like Nigeria, we
need a consensus builder.
Your reactions so far stand you out as a highly
detribalised Nigerian. What informs your broad-
mindedness?
First, I thank God for the kind of family I come
from. It taught me to see humanity rather than
dissect human being into tribes or religions. I
was brought to see common humanity that we
share. What I wish for an Hausa man I wish for a
Yoruba and an Igbo man.
Of course, there is also the military training. I
doubt if any military officer, a regular combatant
officer, will want to discriminate on the basis of
religion or tribe. A true soldier does not
discriminate.
Now to military matters. Politicians easily blame
Nigeria’s woes on military rules in the
country.Would you agree with them?
You should ask Nigerians if they are better off
under politicians or under the military in the
level of corruption, insecurity and other aspects
of governance. It is Nigerians that should answer
that question. Nigerians should judge, not
politicians.
As a former governor of Kaduna State
(August 1985 – June 1988), can you boast
of any legacy you left behind?
When you talk of legacy, what readily comes to
mind is structures, infrastructure but enduring
legacy is far more than that. What Nelson
Mandela is being celebrated for today are not the
roads or airports he built in South Africa, he is
remembered for liberating South Africa from
apartheid. During my administration, I was able
to win the minds of the Southern Kaduna
indigenes and I made sure we removed
discrimination in whatever form. That was
exactly my achievement. Peace prevailed.
You were opposed to the annulment of the
June 12 election; what informed your
position?
When I was appointed a military governor in
1985 by the Ibrahim Babangida administration,
he told me that if I found anything wrong, I
should not hesitate to let him know. So, when he
announced the transition-to-civil rule
programme, I counselled that he should ensure
that the date he fixed was sacrosanct, the date
should not be changed under any circumstance.
Soon after the announcement in January 1986,
things started unfolding. To cut the long story
short, by 1992, the primaries were about to be
annulled, I wrote a letter to IBB that the election
was losing credibility, that there was the need to
hurry up and handover.
By December 1992, at the Chief of Army Staff
Conference, I raised the issue under other
matters that since we were being embarrassed,
there was the need to conclude the transition
programme. Gen. Sani Abacha asked me to see
him in his house. I went to Abacha’s house in
company of the current National Security
Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki. What General
Abacha told me then was that they were all
eager to see that power was handed over to
civilian administration but it looked like IBB was
dilly-dallying, that he didn’t want to go. But what
I discovered later was that that was not correct.
Anyway, we moved to the June 12 election.
When the primaries of the two parties(National
Republican Convention and Social Democratic
Party) that was created by IBB held, and
Moshood Abiola and Bashir Tofa emerged
candidates, I kept putting pressure on IBB to
conclude the transition and hand over but
Abacha kept telling me that IBB was not
committed to the election and that we should
keep putting pressure on him. I kept going to IBB
and he kept assuring me he was on course.
About two weeks to the election, IBB called to
say that some military boys were putting
pressure on him not to hand over because the
Structural Adjustment Programme had not
achieved results and Nigeria was in a precarious
situation.
In the meantime, Abacha was saying if IBB did
not hand over after the June 12 election, we
should move against him, topple him and hand
over to whoever wins the election.
The election was held, we realised Abiola was
going to win, I dashed to Abuja, met with the
chairman of the electoral commission. He told
me he had received 22 states and it looked like
Abiola was coasting home to victory. I pleaded
with him to ensure that he announced the
results. Abacha invited me. He told me that IBB
would not allow the results to be announced. He
said we should go ahead, topple him and hand
over to the winner. He sent me on a wild goose
chase; he said I should get the army boys ready
for any eventuality. Of course, I went round the
country, we got our boys ready. What was
agreed was that the person that would announce
the overthrow of Babangida would announce the
result of the elections and hand over to the
winner. We got all the boys in all the regional
headquarters ready. Abacha said he was going to
call the GOCs to let them know that the military
had decided to let the winner of the June 12 to
take over.
On the eve of the coup, we went for a
coordinating conference, all the boys were
alerted. The conference had current NSA, Col
Dasuki, Col Gwadabe among other officers to
coordinate the last minute of the take-over. Gen.
Abacha was to join us later but he failed to
appear. An officer asked me which appointment I
would like to take in the new government. I
replied, ‘Which government? I was told that
Abacha had decided to take over power for six
months before handing over to Abiola. I told
them that was a very dangerous development
and that I would not partake in such a plan. We
reached a deadlock and I decided to go and
confront Gen. Abacha. Around nine in the night, I
went to Abacha’s house and I met him alone. I
asked him why he changed the plan. I told him
that the only reason I joined in the plot was to
hand over to Abiola immediately. I told him that I
knew that any coup against Babangida was like
a suicide mission but I decided to join even at
the cost of my life because I wanted Nigerians to
know I was not part of the annulment that would
plunge the country into crisis. I told him we
should continue with our earlier plan. He said the
problem was that Abiola could not control the
country with all the problems. I told him that
whatever happened I would not partake in a coup
that would bring him to power.
While I was talking with him, Gen. Ahmed
Abdulahi appeared. I told him that I was out of
the plan. I left and radioed all those we put on
the standby and told them that the coup plan had
been terminated, that we were not going to
continue. I told senior officers that Abacha was
only trying to hoodwink us.
When that plot failed, Abacha and some other
officers convinced IBB to step aside but that he
should leave some trusted officers, to work with
an interim government to stabilise the polity.
That way, the coast was left free for Abacha to
have his way.

What Fast & Furious actor, Paul Walker wanted written on his tombstone (READ)

Jesse Brisendine, a renowned personal trainer
and motivational speaker has given a touching
tribute to his long time friend and associate, Paul
Walker who died in a car crash in Los Angeles,
California.
Brisendine who is saddened by friend’s death
wrote on his Facebook wall revealing what the
Fast & Furious actor told him years ago about
what he hoped to be remembered for.
Read his farewell message below:
3 years ago Paul Walker and I were sitting
around talking about goals and dreams. I asked
him what he would want written on his
tombstone and his response was as follows:
“He was a good guy and a kind person.”
Having known Paul and being privileged to call
him a best friend and brother, having traveled
the world together, having shared 1000′s of
laughs and tears together, I can honestly say
that Paul was more than a good guy and a kind
person. He is one of the kindest, caring,
compassionate people I have ever met. He
always wanted to learn, he always wanted to
grow, he always wanted to be the best person he
can be.
I know he would want the same for all those who
know him and know of him: to do your best to be
the best person you can be.
Carpe Diem,

ASUU: Police now deployed to all federal universities, Plus 10 things you SHOULD know about the FG meeting with VCs in Abuja

The face-off between the Federal Government
and members of the Academic Staff Union of
Universities(ASUU) may have taken another
twist as the former is making plans to railroad
the striking lecturers back to the classrooms.
University lecturers had embarked on an
indefinite strike in July after accusing the FG of
reneging on their promise of, among other
things, injecting funds into the education sector.
The lecturers had given stringent conditions for
their return to classes demanding a payment of
the four-month salary arrears of its members
from July and the release of N200 billion that
President Goodluck Jonathan promised to inject
into the university system within the next two
weeks.
The FG had countered these demands by
ordering the lecturers back to school by
Wednesday, December 4, reportedly directing
the Inspector General of Police to make
adequate preparations to forestall any form of
violence which may ensue as the directive is
being obeyed by willing lecturers.
According to reports, the FG delegation had met
on Friday with vice-chancellors of Federal
Universities to fashion out a way of ensuring that
its directive is followed by their respective
institutions.
The meeting which reportedly had the Nigerian
Universities Commission (NUC) boss, Julius
Okojie in attendance deliberated on replacing
the striking lecturers with new ones and opening
a register in institutions so that members that
resume work would indicate by signing and
those who fail to do so may be shown the way
out.
Read the 10 things we gleaned from the
deliberations below:
– There was an emergency meeting on Friday
convened by the Federal Government and held
with all vice-chancellors of federal universities at
the National Universities Commission building in
Abuja. The Acting Minister of Education, Chief
Nyesom Wike, and the Executive Secretary of
the NUC, Prof Julius Okojie, were at the meeting.
– The FG has directed the Inspector General of
Police, Mohammed Abubakar, to deploy
policemen to all federal universities in the
country in its bid to ensure resumption of
academic activities on or before December 4.
– To confirm this directive, the Police Public
Relations Officer in Enugu, Ebere Amaraizu,
said its men had been directed to man
universities in the state to quell any protest that
might result from the Federal Government’s
order on lecturers to resume work on or before
Wednesday.
– The Friday meeting which took place in Abuja
began at 9am and lasted for two hours. Part of
the meeting’s deliberations, also centred on how
to recruit new lecturers to fill the space of ASUU
members who might refuse to obey
government’s directive. NUC boss, Julius Okojie
was reportedly mandated to start the process of
recruiting new lecturers by placing vacancy
adverts in international journals and media.
– There are indications that vice-chancellors have
been directed to call students back to campus by
tomorrow in preparation for academic activities
which should start early next week.
– The vice-chancellors were directed to open
registers in their institutions where ASUU
members that resume work would sign so that
those who failed to resume could be shown the
way out.
– Reports say that the Federal Government was
planning to adopt the Ghanaian method where
lecturers were asked to re-apply for their jobs
after a prolonged period of downing tools.
– It was revealed that Nigerian universities are
currently in need of about 30,000 lecturers due to
the shortage of lecturers in the university
system.
– December 4 is a decisive day between the FG
and striking university lecturers as the date had
been set aside by ASUU to bury Prof. Festus
Iyayi, a former President of the union who died in
an accident on his way to a meeting in Kano.
Iyayi had died on the Abuja-Lokoja road when
the car he was travelling in collided with the
convoy of the governor of Kogi, Idris Wada on
Novermber 12.
Members of the Union had quickly made a
decision to suspend its proposed NEC meeting
indefinitely to honour the memory of the late
professor.
– The University of Nigeria (UNN) chapter of
ASUU yesterday said its members would not
resume work until their demands are met. The
UNN-ASUU also described the Minister of
Education, Wike, as a “tout”.
“We have not heard from the President, so we
cannot speak officially on the matter. It would be
senseless to begin to react to a statement from
Wike since he is a tout,” said Dr. Ifeanyi Abada,
Chairman of UNN-ASUU had said.
Well, where do we go from here. Your guess is as
good as ours. It is however, imperative that the
two parties immediately find a way out of this
impasse so as not to keeps students at home
unnecessarily

ASUU STRIKE UPDATE : ASUU NEC MEETING TO HOLD ON FRIDAY CURLED FROM DAILY INDEPENDENT

The Academic Staff Union of Universities
(ASUU) may hold its postponed National
Executive Council (NEC) meeting on
Friday to decide whether or not to
suspend the indefinite strike it began
since July 2.
A top official of ASUU, who preferred
anonymity, disclosed this to Daily
Independent in a telephone interview on
Sunday.
He was, however, not certain if the NEC
will still be held at the Bayero University,
Kano where it was initially proposed to
hold.
The leadership of the union postponed
the scheduled Kano NEC meeting
following the demise of one its key
members, Festus Iyayi, who died last
Tuesday in a ghastly motor accident on
his way to Kano for the postponed NEC
meeting.
The source noted that the union
members are still grieved and are pre-
occupied with the burial arrangement of
the late Professor of Business
Administration, who died along the
Abuja-Lokoja highway in an accident
caused by the convoy of Kogi State
Governor, Idris Wada.
The source debunked speculations in the
social media that ASUU has jettisoned its
NEC indefinitely, saying the union
postponed the NEC meeting as a mark of
honour and respect for the late Iyayi.
According to him, all ASUU officials that
were supposed to participate in the NEC
meeting last week Wednesday had
actually gathered at the Bayero
University, Kano, but for the unfortunate
accident which claimed the life of Iyayi
and disrupted the agenda already set for
the meeting.
Meanwhile, Supervisory Minister of
Education, Nyesom Wike, also at the
weekend led a delegation of government
on a condolence visit to the residence of
the late academician in Benin City.
Wike assured that the Federal
Government would diligently implement
all the agreements it reached with ASUU
in the course of the negotiations with
President Goodluck Jonathan.
Those in the delegation of the minister
include Executive Secretary of the
National Universities Commission (NUC),
Julius Okojie, and some top officials of
Federal Ministry of Education.
They also visited the injured ASUU
National Welfare Officer, Ngozi Iloh, who
is said to be responding to treatment at
the University of Benin Teaching
Hospital, Benin.
In a statement in Abuja on Sunday, the
Minister’s Special Assistant (Media),
Simeon Nwakaudu, said Wike solicited
the permission of the family to allow the
Federal Government participate in the
burial ceremony of the former ASUU
president.
“President Goodluck Jonathan and the
entire administration are deeply pained
by the sudden death of the former ASUU
National President who played a key part
in the negotiations between ASUU and
the Federal Government.
“We recall the significant contributions
of Professor Iyayi during the 13-hour
negotiations between President
Jonathan and ASUU, which led to a
headway in the discussions.
“I want to assure the family that the
ideals that the late scholar fought and
died for will never be forgotten. The
Federal Government will diligently
implement the decisions reached in the
course of negotiations with ASUU.
“The Federal Ministry of Education
wishes to be a part of the burial of this
erudite scholar and we seek the
permission of the family to participate in
the burial. I pray God to grant the family
the strength to bear this unfortunate
loss,” Wike was quoted to have said.
Oriabure Iyayi, son of the late ASUU
president, was said to have thanked
President Jonathan, the Minister of
Education and all Nigerians for
commiserating with the family at their
moment of grief.
A relative of the deceased, Prof. Robert
Ebiwele, informed the minister that the
burial will hold between December 5 and
9.
He assured that the family would inform
the Federal Ministry of Education on the
burial arrangements.
