11 Differences between Dating A Girl And A Woman

A boy is attracted to girls. A man is
attracted to women. Now, this has
nothing to do with the actual age of a
person. I’m referring to maturity, life
vision and stage of life. In fact, some
people regardless of their age, will never
really grow up. Also, this isn’t to say that
a woman won’t ever have “girlish” or
immature tendencies or vice versa. This
post refers to one’s maturity and most
points would also apply if you switch the
genders as well.If you are a boy, then expect that you will
attract only girls. However, if you are a
man (independent, knows your worth and
value, has a strong moral compass, is
considerate and an able communicator and
doesn’t let insecurity dominate your
psyche), then you should be dating a
woman. And if you can’t spot the
difference just yet, here are some
pointers:1. A girl throws tantrums. When
displeased, upset or angry, she reacts just
as she did as a child when she didn’t get
her way with her parents. This often
consists of screaming, pouting, givi…

Counting the Costs of ASUU Strike

As the strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) continues to bite hard, Damilola Oyedele and Adebiyi Adedapo examine the implications for students and other stakeholders, with focus on University of AbujaAdejumoke Oluwalope has finished her final year second semester examination at the University of Abuja. But like many of her fellow students, she has not been mobilized to participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). The marking of their papers are being delayed by the ongoing strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).She gained admission into the Faculty of Agricultural Science in 2007, and has now spent six years for a supposedly five year programme. If the strike is called off this year, she may be mobilized in 2014 but by then, she would have spent seven years in the university.
Ibrahim Iliyasu’s story is the same and his future is being affected by the industrial action. This is because, coming from a military family backg…


It was on a Sunday Morning; 28th July, 2013.Just like every normal Sunday, I woke up, bathed, and got dressed for service.It was an Estate in Ajaokuta, Kogi state, where I came to stay with my uncle and his family, since the commencement of ASUU strike.My cousins were away, so we were just 4. My uncle, his wife, my cousins' cousin; that's to say my uncle's wife's niece; and myself.After the never-quick-ending-service was over, we returned home.I guess I'm used to 2hours sunday service in church. Anything more, I term it "Message Overload".While eating the meal, my uncle called to me, "Emma, eat hurrily, you and I are leaving for Edo by 2:00pm.".I was so excited, I'm going south for the first time.Getting back to the Dinning table, you know, I started rolling my sleeves, adjusting my collar and declared to my cousins' cousin, "I'm going to Edo today", shining my teeth alongside. "whatever", she said, jealously.I st…

THE National Strike Coordinating Committee, NSCC, comprising of principal officers and Zonal Coordinators of Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU will be meeting Saturday to take stock of the ongoing strike embarked by the union that is entering the fourth months.
Meantime, ASUU said that it was not under any pressure to call-off the strike despite what it called sponsored protests and rallies against the union, stressing that before the union decided to embark on the strike, it holistically took objective assessment of the situation.
One of the branch Chairmen of ASUU and member of NSCC who spoke exclusively to Saturday Vanguard on the condition of anonymity said that the meeting will take place in Ondo state and that there would be a situation report including the meeting representatives of ASUU had with the Federal government last week’s Friday.
He said,”We are meeting tomorrow, National Strike Coordinating Committee. Tomorrow is arrival. Our Pri…


Are they so cocooned in their
own affairs and interest alone but merely
wear the garb of fighting for the course of
students?How can they answer to God for the
students who have died in one ugly
circumstance or the other since the
commencement of this strike? What about
the young men and women whose future
dreams and aspirations now hang in the
balance since the strike became an anemia?
Can they present a reasonable case apart
from asking us to blame the government
and listing the government’s recklessness
with funds and the deluxe lifestyles of
politicians? Many people have often said
that, “if they want to become politicians,
they should quit their jobs and register
with political parties to test their
popularity in elections”. While I have never
fancied such statement in the past, I
cannot help but subscribe to it. Being in the
academia is a whole different thing from
being in the political class and as far as I
am concerned, I consider the academic a
more prestigious place to be t…


I have no problem with Unionism. Perhaps I
should say that any right thinking person
should and ought not to be exasperated by
an active and fair unionism. If anything,
it demands our collective support as
citizens and most especially among the
citizens of the ‘fourth estate of the
realm’.With all their faults and imperfections,
trade unions have done more than
exceedingly for humanity than any other
organization of men that ever existed.
They have done more for decency, for
honesty, for education, for the
betterment of the human race, for the
development of character in man than any
other association of men.In a democratic dispensation like ours, the
roles of trade unions cannot be
overemphasized. Apart from acting as a
tool by which the labor rights of employees
are not carelessly violated at the hands of
their employers, they have also served as a
watch-dog on the activities of
government, playing oversight functions
and being a constant check on the excesses
of the govern…

Hi dt readers just saw this post on nairaland,and it got me thinking alot.
"Students of nowadays are just dull. Only students can make ASUU cal of dis try. Yes, d universities need attention but we shudnt forget its same universities dat has produced billions of graduates includin d President. Y wudnt they be considerate nd folo d FG wit dia pace, nd let tins gradually take place. D moni may b available but we shud undastand economics, if such moni is released at once nd pumped into d economy, it wil definitely cripple it. I guess dat must b among d reasons d FG are givin...
I urge students to wake up nd fight for dia future, ASUU members have a future already, FG members have dias already, so while play with ours. Even in d current universities state, wot are lecturers teachin? All are just lazy. Most of my lecturers are stil dictatin dia notes dey used during undagrad to students. Is it wen d structures improve dat dey wil improve too?" what do u think?

Cross River State welcomes you to the Africa International Film Fest.


The Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) has announced it final selection for the 2013 film programme. Coming on the heels of the surprise withdrawal of the last week of the 'Half of a Yellow Sun' from the programme, The AFRIFF programme line up did not disappoint, annoucing the inclusion of solid titles like  'Mother of George', 'Virgin Magarida', 'Confusion Na wa' etc. Speaking on selecting films for the programme, Keith Shiri, festival Programmer and Jury Coordinator, had this to say. “ With so many entries and very few slots available it sometimes can become a daunting task to decide what to select and what to keep out. It was indeed a hard process. As we were inundated with amazing films from many parts of the continent. This year’s programme works in many levels from Andrew Dosunmu’s dazzling array of rich colours in his visually pleasing Mother of George to Chika Anadu’s B for Boy a debut feature and realist drama that questions Nigeria’s …
