    Mr Ercan Yilmaz, Principal, Nigerian Tulip International College ,Ogun Branch, parents
    and visitors during inspection of projects at 2019 Science Fair, Arts Exhibition at the College
    on Wednesday

    By Rukayat Adeyemi /08032377091
    Lagos, Feb. 6, 2018 (NNN) Mr Ercan Yilmaz, the Principal of Nigeria Tulip International College,
    Ogun chapter, on Wednesday, says education without the application of technology is incomplete
    and  inefficient in the 21st century.

    He made the remark at the 2019 Science Fair and Arts Exhibition organised by the college with
    the theme “ Science Comforts the World.”

    He said that “if technology has been adjudged to make life comfortable and acceptable
    as the application of science discovery, then we can say without fear of any contradiction that
    science indeed comforts the world.

    “Hence, this is adopted as our theme for the 2019 science fair.”

    According to him, there is no gainsaying to the fact that today’s world is technology-driven as
    technological advancement has become applicable to nearly all aspects of life.

    The principal explained that quality and comprehensive education was not all about classroom theoretical
    teaching but a combination of robotic, science, art and even cultural knowledge.

    He noted that in furtherance to the course of technology, over 100 projects from different faculties
    were exhibited by the students for the 2019 exhibition.

    He added that “we are happy to see the different talents and discoveries from students of the college
    and the large turnout of schools, students and visitors.

    “This will further encourage us to do more to sustain the project and also enable our students to be more
    productive.”

    Yilmaz said that while some student were good in theory, others were science or art inclined, “and until they
    are given the opportunity to showcase their talents through such exhibitions, they may not maximise their potential.”

    He expressed optimism that with the performance of the students, the nation was sure to have a future generation
    of expertise in engineering, economics, manufacturing and other sectors.

    Mrs Joyce Ankca, a parent, lauded the college for organising the fair and described it as fascinating.

    She urged the college authorities to place more emphasis on arts projects too.

    She said “I was really fascinated with the laboratory blood that was done and honestly NTIC had
    been doing well, especially in science but I want the college to encourage arts projects too.”

    The School’s Head Girl, Mariam Jubril, said that the fair was an avenue for students to learn new things, especially in science
    and it had been interesting.

    She added that “the physics and chemistry stand is especially fascinating because we have seen
    the practical application of things we learnt in the classroom.”

    The News Agency of Nigeria (NNN) reports that some of the projects exhibited by the students included liquid
    soaps, hand sanitisers, decoration materials, polymers to prevent leakage, electromagnets, insecticide and sausage skewers.

    Hundreds of students from over 20 schools within Ogun and Lagos states attended the event.

    Some of the schools were Kingdom Heritage Model School, Ikeja;  Bukyfield Nursery and Primary Schools, Ikosi Ketu;
    and Madonna Nursery and Primary School, Ikoyi. (NNN)

    GBV
    Gombe, Feb. 9, 2019 (NNN) An international rights organisation, Ipas, has urged the police and other relevant authorities to prosecute and enforce sanctions against perpetrators of Gender Based Violence (GBV) in the country. Ms Hauwa Shekarau, the country Director of Ipas, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NNN) in Gombe on Saturday. NNN reports that Ipas is an international organisation working in the area of reducing abortion-related death and injuries as well as increase women’s ability to exercise their sexual and reproductive rights. She said cases of GBV were on the increase, but the perpetrators of the act were not held to face the wrath of the law. Shekarau, who is also a legal practitioner, said if perpetrators would not be brought to book, the cases would continue to escalate. “Any matter that was reported must be investigated and not to mere settle the matter between the culprit and victim. “A crime is a crime and should not be settled, except that matter is taken to court and court says the suspect is not guilty.” She also identified fear of stigma as one of the factors hindering people from reporting GBV cases to the police. “Fear of stigmatisation is not doing harm to our societies. “But allowing the culprit to face the wrath of the law will serve as deterrent to other perpetrators of the act. She also said NGOs,community-based organisations, religious and traditional leaders should encourage the public to report cases of GBV to the appropriate authorities. NNN reports that Ipas trained 20 selected journalists from Gombe, Jigawa and Taraba States on Women’s Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights for three days in Gombe. (NNN)

    New Commissioner of Police assumes duty in Abia CP
    Umuahia, Feb. 11, 2019 (NNN) The new Commissioner of Police (CP) in Abia, Mr Eneh Okon, assumed office on Monday, promising to discharge his duty diligently with the fear of God.
    Speaking at a brief handover ceremony held at the Police Officers Mess, Umuahia, Okon also promised to work with officers and men of the command as “friends and colleagues”.
    He said, “I shall work with all the officers and men of the state command as colleagues and friends.
    ”You should not be afraid of me but only fear God,” he said.
    Okon, who was a Deputy Commissioner of Police in Abia before his recent elevation, said that he had no fear that he would succeed, given his vast knowledge of the state.
    He spoke glowingly about the qualtiy and personality of his predecessor, Mr Chris Ezike, who was among the officers recently promoted to the rank of Assistant Inspector-General of Police.
    “The former Commissioner of Police is an embodiment of knowledge and intelligence and he makes his mark everywhere he goes,” the new police boss said.
    In his remarks, Ezike described the inadequate personnel and lack of logistics to fight crime in the state as the major challenges that confronted him as CP.
    He said that the command also lacked adequate and functional operational vehicles for greater efficiency.
    He said that the police required operational vehicles to be able to achieve an efficiant visibility policing in crime prevention.
    Ezike expressed delight over the approvsl of funds by Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu for the purchase of operational vehicles for the police and hoped that the money would be released.
    He thanked Ikpeazu for his assistance to the command during his three-month stay as CP in Abia.
    Ezike said that his only regret as CP in Abia was when the command recorded “an operational mistake”, in which a police officer and an army personnel died during a crossfire with armed bandits.
    He charged the officers and men of the command to demonstrate a high level of professionalism, credibility and integrity during the general elections.
    He described Okon as a proactive, young and energetic officer with the capacity to take the Nigerian Police to the next level.
    Speaking to newsmen on the sideline of the handover, Ezike, who was posted as the new AIG Zone 4, Makurdi, said that he would continue to advocate community policing as an efficient strategy for crime prevention. (NNN)

    “Be the change. Do not wail for that which is troubling this country; Fight to fix it and make the country great again.

    “Do not hail the corrupt and destroyers of our Dreams; Expose and ridicule them.

    “The Politicians are corruptly connected, criminally bonded and fearful of the people.

    “We must be audacious in our demands; we must be Fearless in our Agitation and we must be ready to sacrifice our all for this Country, “he said.

    “The Nigerian politician is our Enemy; The Nigerian people are the victim and it is time to channel our anger towards a “Peaceful Revolution”.

    “We must stop being the victims and become “THE FEAR“.
