The Bayelsa State Government says it has commenced the processes of resolving issues for which both academic and non-academic staff of the State-owned Niger Delta University (NDU) joined in the lingering nationwide Academic staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.
The state Commissioner for Education, Dr Gentle Emelah, revealed this recently while speaking with journalists in Yenagoa, the State Capital at the 6th edition of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) essay competition for under- graduates of Nigerian Universities.
Emelah, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr Christopher Ewhrudjakpo, noted that the decision of the Ministry to get the striking lecturers to call off the strike was sequel to a call by the State Governor, Senator Douyi Diri.
Describing the government as education friendly, the Commissioner noted that the State Government has not only paid up-to-date salaries of the striking workers of the institution, but has also increased the school’s subvention, hence there was no need for them to continue on the sympathy strike.
Noting such state-owned universities as Rivers State University (RSU), and Delta State University (DELSU), which did not join ASUU in sympathy strike, Ewhrudjakpo said the universities realize that their governments place premiums on education by their investments in the sector.
He stated that the Bayelsa State Government has invested immensely on its educational sector in terms of welfare of staff and projects execution in NDU, promising that NDU would soon call off its solidarity sympathy strike.
The Tide learnt that Governor Diri had penultimate week directed the academic union of NDU to call off the strike.
Meanwhile, the state Commissioner for Education, Dr. Emelah commended the NCDMB for its support for education in the nation through its Programmes on grooming and discovering of young academic-inclined Nigerians in institutions of learning across the nation.
He described the 6th edition of the NCDMB’s essay competition for undergraduates, which held in Yenagoa, as a step in the right direction, saying it would act as a catalyst in complementing government’s efforts and investments in education.

Rivers State alongside Kano and Abuja have been billed to have the 9,000 capacity custodial centres latest by December 2022.
The centres each have 3000 capacity. Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who revealed this while speaking to journalists shortly after a facility tour to the Abuja ultra modern Custodian Centre Monday, stated that the Federal Government would complete the 9000 capacity custodial centres in the three states of the country.
Aregbesola noted that the facility in Kano was near completion, adding that the facilities in Rivers and Abuja were at 55% completion.
“My desire is to have the first three of the six projects to be completed before this administration ends.
“We have a similar facility in Kano that is almost completed. I believe before December, it will be inaugurated and commissioned by the President.
”The one at Rivers State is almost at the same stage like this. With support from the President, these two (Rivers and Abuja) will be completed by the end of the year,” he said.
The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) on Monday handed over laptops and starter packs to one thousand youths from Cross River State across the three Senatorial Districts of the State after a training programme.
The trainees are also expected to receive N120,000 as stipends, a shop each, and registration of business names, which were selected for the training in phone repairs, hardware, software and entrepreneurship development.
During the graduation ceremony of the trainees in Calabar, Mr Simbi Wabote, Executive Secretary, NCDMB, said in the era of the fourth industrial revolution, mobile technology had become an indispensable tool.
He said the telecommunication industry is one of the fastest growing in the nation and was contributing massively to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
“According to data from Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) and Nigeria Bureau of Statistics (NBS), Nigeria’s tele-density grew from 1.89 per cent in 2002 to 102.47 per cent in 2021.
“Similarly, Nigeria’s total subscription to the network now stands at 195 million while the number of android phone users now stands at 56 million,” he noted.
He appealed to the trainees to effectively use what they have learnt, adding that their involvement in the programme had the capacity to increase the GDP of the nation.
On his part, Chairman, Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Committee (CDMC) in the House of Representatives, noted that similar programmes had earlier been held in Kano, Kaduna, Bauchi, Jigawa and Yobe states.
Idagbo, representing Bekwarra, Obudu and Obanliku Federal Constituency of Cross River State, facilitated the initiative, saying the selection of the trainees was random and apolitical based on those that applied.
While reeling out the benefits of the programme for the trainees, he told them that the ball was in their courts, adding that they would only succeed by practising what they had been taught.
“It is the mindset that you have that will make you succeed. I want to challenge you to ensure that we see 50 to 60 per cent success from this training”,he said.
Similarly, the State Governor, Ben Ayade, advised the beneficiaries to use the equipment they would be receiving to make their lives better while becoming entrepreneurs.
Represented by his Deputy, Prof. Ivara Esu, the Governor appealed to the beneficiaries not to sell what they have been given, but use them to their betterment and that of the State.
“Use what you have been given well, don’t sell them, they are for your good.
“The State is giving you three years tax exemption, access to funds, different initiatives from the Federal Government and protection from multiple taxation,” he said.
The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Edo State Chapter, has commended the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration in the State for what it called its proactive stance on teachers’ professional development.
The State Chairman of the union, Mr Bernard Ajobiewe, made the commendation in Benin at the training and induction of 1,445 teachers, principals and head teachers into the EdoBEST 2.0 Education Reform programme of the State.
The Tide’s source reports that the teachers drawn from the 18 Local Government Areas of the State, converged in Benin on a 10-day intensive training on pedagogy in line with the education reform agenda of the Obaseki administration.
Ajobiewe said teachers produced under the EdoBEST 2.0 would bring better learning outcomes to pupils in the State.
“I must say that I am impressed that I was part of the maiden EdoBEST induction training as a volunteer in 2018.
“In 2019, I participated fully in the training and it was so impactful.
“I must appreciate the Edo State Government and the Chairman of the Edo State Universal Basic Education Board (Edo SUBEB), Mrs Ozavize Salami, for this laudable initiative,” he said.
Ajobiewe noted that the internet gadget distributed to the teachers would help them to adapt to the evolving educational technology of the world.
“The teacher-tablet helped to train the teachers on the use of technology in impacting knowledge to the learners and students.
“Formally, teachers write lesson notes and deliver lessons manually in the classrooms, but that era is a thing of the past and this is so imperative.
“Children in the rural areas can now read and compete with pupils in the urban settlement and that gives me joy,” he said.
The NUT Chairman also lauded the State Government for employing 3,000 teachers under the Edo Supporting Teachers to Achieve Results (EdoSTAR) teaching fellowship, to close the learning gap in the school system.
He, however, called on the Governor to absorb the teacher volunteers into the civil service.
He also urged the Governor to put structures in place that would sustain the programme when he left office.
The Tide’s source reports that the 10-day training was to prepare teachers and school heads for the full implementation of EdoBEST reform in the new academic session that started last Monday.
The training handled new school and classroom management techniques, modern teaching practices, safeguarding and child protection strategies as well as emerging best practices in school administration.
