FUTA: Futarians clamour to resume new session by November.

Despite the several happenings in FUTA today, futarians don't want a change in their academic calender. The university is to resume her 2016/2017 academic session by the 2nd week in November at norms, still nothing is said about it but futarians fear their might be a change due to the recent happenings... I can guarantee you futa students are saying a big NO!!! To that.

Below is a post Directly from the FUTA SUG facebook page.

The foremost University of Technology in Nigeria, FUTA continues to be engulfed in the series of event which enfolded on the sixth day of October, 2016 when the vice chancellor, Prof. Adebiyi Gregory Daramola was invited by the EFCC for questioning over alleged misappropriation of funds amongst others. Subsequently, the FUTA chapter of SSANU, NASU and NAAT began a protest to charge for a four-agenda points campaign. The points were noted in a press release by the unifying body of the staff unions, JAC. The points included immediate removal of the VC for charges levelled against him by the EFCC, dissolution of the governing council, probe of FUTA account and call for a visitation panel. The protest which began on the sixth day continued yesterday as Staff Union members in their intimidating numbers flooded the main gate of the University. However, men of the police were readily available at the school's entrance to bar the staff unions from gaining entrance. The protest which lasted till yesterday afternoon saw the Union members chanting and singing against the Vice-Chancellor. On speaking to one of the top officials who does not want his name disclosed, we heard that the Vice-Chancellor has refused to be moved by the on-going protest despite that several pleas have been made to the Vice-Chancellor to settle the Staff Unions. 

In some other attempt, the Students Union Government of the school called for a press conference yesterday which held at the Conference Room of the Student Union Building. The press conference which ended at around three o'clock had pressmen from Channels, OSRC, NTA and AIT. The SUG addressed the press conference and their stand on the recent protest action. The SUG President, deputy speaker of the SRC were some of those present at the press conference.

The Student Union informed the Pressmen of their stand with the actions and decisions of the Vice-Chancellor and so dismissing the petition made by the EFCC citing the petition as baseless. The student Union also said that after her thorough investigation, it's evident that the petition was only to tarnish the name and reputation of the VC . 
The student Union went further as touching the claims of the staff on "productivity allowances" that such was never approved by the governing Council and hence, the joint body, JAC consisting of FUTA SSANU, NASU and NAAT only rioted on a baseless issue.

The SUG claimed that the IGR scheme which the staff Union rioted about is said to have been used for infrastructural developments in the school which is believe to aid learning for all. The SUG also stated that the standard academic institution which the VC is committed to will be at detriment if the productivity allowances were given as a take-home package.
The SUG then reiterated firmly that the VC is a dedicated, focused and hardworking man that has done tremendous works in FUTA. The SUG also highlighted a few of his achievements; the construction of a 200-room female and male undergraduates hostel each, constant water and light, and also the relative stability of the school's academic calendar. They also stated that it was surprising that the JAC has decided to disrupt all of these for their selfish payments. These and more were the outcome and reasons stated as to why the VC has the backing of the SUG.

However, in another recent development, it has reached us that a faction of the SUG leadership and students are unhappy with the press conference. Claims that the press conference should have been lately held and that the protesters should have been given a fair-hearing was also stated. This then sends a looming signal as some of them called that students and the public disregard the press release statement earlier signed by FUTA SUG and await an official one. 

While speaking to a top official of the University last night, he claimed that the press release from the SUG was misguided and proved their non-clairvoyance on the protest action.

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

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. Mor

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 stud

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

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.
