12 FUTA STUDENTS TO COMPLETE UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMME AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY.

The Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, FUTA Professor Adebiyi Daramola has admonished the fourth set of students who recently proceeded to the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), Tallahassee, Florida, United States
of America for the completion of their undergraduate programmes to sustain and improve on the already established positive image of the University during their academic sojourn in America. He stated this at a departure send-off organized for the 12 students who will be in the United States for two sessions under the aegis of the existing academic exchange programme and memorandum of understanding between both institutions.
Reviewing the performance of students in the collaboration since inception of the 4+1+1 programme under which selected FUTA students complete the last year of their undergraduate programme in FAMU and proceed to do their masters, Daramola said, “I am very happy to announce to you that your predecessors in the programme have made us proud. They keep our flag flying and keep making us shine. I want you to make FUTA shine better. Since the programme started, we have received positive reports about our students. They have performed morally and academically well. As I am talking to you, one of them who went in 2014 will be completing his Doctorate in April, 2017. This is a great feat he is almost a Ph.D. holder.
That is why I always say sky is not just the limit, but the starting point for the serious
type. Therefore, I urge you to utilize this rare opportunity to the best.” While appreciating the investment of the parents, Daramola said “I congratulate parents for
this huge investment into the future. This is because we all know how difficult the Nigerian economy is, especially because of the exchange rate of the naira to foreign currencies. I pray that your investment on these children will never be in vain. They will all succeed and make you and the University proud.” Daramola admonished the students to justify their parents’ investment and be good ambassadors of their parents, the University and Nigeria. He also assured the University community about his administration’s effort in increasing collaboration with world class
Universities. “Our collaboration with world class Universities keep soaring. By next year, our students will be going to Germany. This is because we want them to have opportunities their peers in other Universities in Nigeria don’t have.”
In separate addresses, the Director, International Office, FUTA, Professor Akintunde Akindahunsi, represented by Mr. John Osadeyi, the Chairman, Committee of Deans and Dean, School of Agriculture and Agricultural Technology, SAAT, Professor Shadrach Akindele and the Registrar, Dr. (Mrs.) Modupe Ajayi admonished the students to face their studies and not misuse the opportunity. According to them, America is a land of opportunities open to both success and failure, depending on one’s choice. They implored them to tread the path to success and be good ambassadors of the University.

According to Professor Akindahunsi, FUTA-FAMU collaboration is one of the most active and fruitful MoUs that FUTA currently has. He said efforts are in top gear to increase it for more opportunities.
Responding on behalf of his colleagues, Oladosun Olayinka of the Department of
Metallurgical and Material Engineering (MME) assured the University Management and parents that they will be of good behavior and represent the nation well. He thanked the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adebiyi Daramola for the opportunity his tenure is offering students through the collaboration with world class Institutions; this he said has made FUTA globally relevant. Expressing their delight, Akintola Taofeek Kayode of the Department of Electrical Electronics Engineering and Obinegbo Oluchukwu Chidinma said they are excited about the opportunity the University has afforded them to be exposed to the outside world.
Taofeek said “I did not expect this coming my way when I started my studies here, but I see it as God’s making. I want to advice other students to study hard because there is no time success cannot come ones way,” while Chidinma said “I am really excited with this achievement. You cannot come by this opportunity in other higher Institutions in Nigeria. It is a rare privilege that should not be abused”. They both rated FUTA has a great University saying “If you come to FUTA as nobody and leave the same, then something is wrong with you. This is because there is discipline here at FUTA with sound academic training”.

On their expectation at FAMU, they promised to make the best of the opportunity, so as to justify their parents’ investment and that of the University.
The Twelve students in the FUTA- FAMU Class of 2016/2017 are:

Kidnappers, caught and stripped at Epe/Itokin road and a beautiful lady happened to be amongst... (explicit pics).

This was sent to me on whatsapp though... Some alleged kidnappers in the Epe area of Lagos were caught just as they were trying to get away with their crime yesterday.
it was alleged that the criminals consisting of one female and two men were apprehended by residents and stripped naked.

Some of the people suggested setting the kidnappers on fire although it was not known if this threat was carried out as at the time of the report.

In a related development, kidnappers from Delta and Enugu have been arrested in Calabar, Cross River state during a kidnapping operation.
In a post and photos shared by APC TV via its social media page, it reported that residents apprehended the kidnappers after they had taken a victim.

The kidnappers were stripped and possibly beaten while their vehicle was also destroyed.
Nigerians reacted to the incidents with some noting that human ritual was usually on the rise towards the end of the year.

Some however criticised the stripping of the suspected kidnapp…

FUTA: Burial of the Deceased Futarian... May God forgive her short comings.

I planned not to broadcast this as I got it yesterday, but I changed my mind... this is not to entertain you but to talk words into your heart.
Futarians lost Funmilayo Talabi yesterday and her burial section held accordingly, am not here this time to confirm what killed her or tell you the Gist you are expecting to read but make you realize some fact about the bases of life.

People die everyday like you already know, but it's in fact a dilemma that we don't appreciate our existence on mother earth. No human writes his/her own death wish except those who commit suicides, so you never can tell whose turn it is whether yours or mine... don't say God forbid because it's fact.

The little I knew about her shocked me as people said more good and wonderful things about her... so what are you? What will people say about your legacy when you are gone? what will the angels report about you? Good or bad, it's left for you to decide... be your self don't be somebody else …

Fire in FUTA as VC's car hit library staff on attempt to escape Mob attack.

Well this incident happened this morning in futa and a lot of stories have been trending about what happened, let's give you the different stories.
First I heard JAC wanted to burn the VC and his driver alive in his car as they were stopped upon entering school, in an act of self defence by the driver to escape, the VC's driver hit a female library staff but and she is currently in the hospital now.
Another source tells us the protesters are already being unreasonable, that they were the one that attacked the VC in his car, trying to break his windscreen and wound him, then the driver hit a library staff on an attempt to escape and save the situation.... unfortunately things went wrong.

So I can conclude from the reports that the VC was attacked and on an attempt to save his life for another day, the driver accidentally hit a staff who is currently receiving treatments in the clinic. And policemen have started to Savage all blocked roads. More pics below.





Video & pics: Futa Dean of students' affairs, FUTASUG President, other union leaders arrested and beaten to pulp by armed policemen.

I was just informed that some armed policemen stormed the Students' affairs division of the Federal University of Technology, Akure this morning to arrest the Dean of student, Prof. Alese, the SUG president, Comrade. Solar and other union leaders.
In the video above you would see the SUG president in a milky brown jalab, as he was followed into the van with rounds of slaps... very unfair.
Reasons for this are still yet affirmed but we think it's due to the action of the Dean and SUG president's recent move (creating a new portal for students registration) in ensuring that futarians resume January 3rd, which is very much against what JAC want... which is the removal of the VC or futa activities die.

From what I saw, the futasug and other Union leaders arrest was framed up... an eye witness said:
"The student affairs office was locked after the new site was created, to cripple the resumption process, on hearing this the Dean of students affairs (prof Alese), ordered the…

Paul Scholes Slams Marouane Fellaini.

Paul Scholes statement on Fellaini:"Sir Alex won't have him anywhere near Old Trafford. Not even as a steward sweeping the car park. Yet Van Gaal and Now Mourinho keep picking him. He keeps turning up like a bad smell, like a fart in the lift. He cant pass, Can't dribble, Can't shoot. He is slower than a tortoise going backwards."       I think that's much right??... Lolz.

FUTA: Prof. Alese Writes Enumero of the incident as JAC Made his Birthday Pullus.

Following the incident in futa this morning, of the arrest of the Dean of student, Prof. Alese, the SUG president, Comrade Solar and other SUG leaders, I received a report statement allegedly written by Prof. Alese on an alumni group.
The Statement gave enumero(details) of the incident... it reads thus:
"I would I have misled you, I was supposed to meet with the leadership of ASUUCoop by 11am this morning at ASUU secretariat to discuss the MOU of the ASUUCOOP hostel. I already invited the students in office for 10.30am to take their input to the meeting and explain the new registration portal to them.

Along the line I was told that my office was padlocked by JAC. I called the Sherrif Deputy to send security and I got a Carpentar to join them to open it. The carpenter came and the students were there for the meeting. As I was coming I branched at the secretariat jus to tell the president that that I would be a bit late.

On getting to the secretariat, I got a distress call that that …
