I noticed there was no section for inventors. What a shame!

Where is Jessica Mathew, a 25-year-old Nigerian, from Edo State that invented the football that generates electricity.

Akindele Abiola, and Faleke Oluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15 invented a urine powered generator...aint that worthy of some recognition?

Durojaiye Kehinde Obasanjo is an inventor. He has invented and constructed a vehicle that could be used in the air on land and water: an amphibian jet.

26 year-old Ibrahim Adekunle never went to Secondary School. Attending a University is not one of his plans. After dropping out of Primary school due to financial constraints, he trained as a Blacksmith and Welder. But his knack for reconstructing and re-modelling transport vehicles has ensured that despite his little formal education, his name is known across the world for good.
Some weeks ago, his “Limousine Tricycle” was one of the five selected inventions on the BBC’s coverage of the Maker Faire Africa, an exhibition for inventors which took place in Lagos.

This is just a minute few just to mention. And these people are better recipients than murderers, rogue politicians and public servants that made the list.

And lest I forget, where is 2face Idibia that gave Nigerian music a great lift.

I think the persons that compiled that list are worthy of jail terms.

And need I mention, that Boko Haram struck again while those rogues were receiving their unmerited awards.

ASUU STRIKE : THE VICTORS AND THE VANQUISHED

Being the most or probably one of the most notable union movements in our country Nigeria (due to their regular strike that comes up every 2 years – almost turning a tradition if it’s not already) I guess very few persons would be ignorant of the acronym ASUU. But for the microscopic few who may still be ignorant due to very good reasons known to them, the acronym stands for Academic Staff Union of Universities. But please don’t get carried away the universities there refers to just Nigerian universities. The union came to be in the year 1978 with a history of militant action. ASUU was formed as a successor to the Nigerian Association of University Teachers formed in 1965 and covering academic staff in all of the Federal and State Universities in the country.

The union was active in struggles against the military regime during the 1980s. In 1988 the union organized a National Strike to obtain fair wages and university autonomy. As a result, the ASUU was proscribed on 7 August 1988 and a…

Yaya Toure: The stone the builders rejected!

Since leaving Camp Nou for Manchester City in 2010, the Ivorian has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world - so why did the Blaugrana let him go?


Transfers are a touchy subject in Barcelona right now. However, with the Catalans set to take on Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday night, it is nigh on impossible to avoid thinking about the €30 million deal that saw Yaya Toure swap Camp Nou for the Etihad in 2010.

Of course, that is solely because in the intervening four years the Ivorian has proven himself one of the most complete midfielders in world football. Which begs the question: why on earth did the Blaugrana let him go?

Toure is in no doubt as to where the blame lies. When pressed on his exit in October 2011, he made it clear that then Barca boss Pep Guardiola had effectively forced him out.


THE VIEW FROM BARCELONA "Pep Guardiola didn't have a great relationship with Toure and that's the main reason that Yaya left Bar…
