    Prof. Sulyman Abdulkareem, the Vice-Chancellor of University of Ilorin (Unilorin), has urged members of Old Boys Association, Government Secondary School (GSS), Ilorin, to build the right motivations among students of the institution.

    Abdulkareem, represented by Prof. Musa Yakubu, the Dean of Student Affairs, of the institution gave the charge while delivering his address as the Guest Speaker during the Prize Giving Day ceremony of the school on Tuesday.

    He stressed the need for them to contribute and share the values they imbibed at GSS Ilorin to restore the past glory of its usual radiating academic excellence and not to sit aloof.

    According to him, the success is about struggle just as the motto of the school persistently ingrains it in the minds of its students: “Manjada Wajada” in Arabic, meaning “No Struggle, No Success”.

    Abdulkareem added that true success entails having a positive mental attitude, persistent struggles against difficulties, setbacks and moments in the pursuit for success.

    “True success entails having a positive mental attitude, persistent struggles against difficulties, setbacks and moments in the pursuit for success,” he said.

    Abdlukareem, also the Chairman of the Committee of Vice Chancellors in Nigeria (CVCN), expressed gratitude to National Executives of the Old Boys Association, led by the National President, Alhaji Mohammed Adebayo, and the entire management team of the school.

    “I am just one of the multitudes of great boys that our great school produced and moulded as models and enviable references.

    “Any old boy present at the occasion could have been a better speaker because of the manifestations of the heritage of the academic excellence and character formation known with our school,” he said.

    He appreciated the national executives of the association for initiating such event, adding that though every other school organises prize award ceremony annually, that of the school has a greater and nobler purpose.

    2 Nigerian lecturers make list of top global scientists

    Elsevier BV, based at Stanford University, United States of America, has named two Nigerian professors among the most productive scientists in the world.

    Elsevier BV is an academic publishing company that publishes medical and scientific literature.

    The two Nigerian professors are Prof. Kayode Oyewumi, Dean of the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Prof. Musa Yakubu, immediate former Director of Central Research Laboratories, both from the University of Ilorin.

    The university stated in its bulletin issued Wednesday in Ilorin.

    Speaking on behalf of the duo, Oyewumi said the researchers' ranking had become a global tool for assessing intellectualism, academic prowess, research excellence, and impact in the 21st century.

    "While many classification bodies are questionable and generally unacceptable, a renowned and distinguished emerging classification body has named two UNILORIN professors among the two top scientists in the world," he noted.

    Mr. Oyewumi added that 180,000 scientists were selected from the more than 8 million active scientists around the world in 22 major scientific fields and 176 subfields.

    “The list is led by Professor John Loannidis of Stanford University with the use of verifiable data extracted from the SCOPUS database.

    “The method adopted for the classification involved the use of a complex algorithm based on classification parameters such as the SCOPUS documents (1960-2020).

    "It also includes citations (including various citation works) and co-authorship (including first authorship), among others," he said.

    The dean explained that the long list contained names of few Nigerian scientists drawn mainly from universities and research institutes around the world.

    He described the inclusion of him and Professor Yakubu on the list as a reflection of the valuable impact of the Ilorin University researchers on the global research platform.

    “Obviously, the recent achievement is certainly inspiring for young faculty members and academic researchers.

    "The next edition of the ranking is expected to include more scientists from UNILORIN and Nigeria," said Oyewumi.

    Kogi SIP trains personnel on ethical conducts, accountability

    The Kogi State Social Investment Programme (Kogi-SIP) has trained its workers on the need to imbibe ethical conducts to enhance their level of accountability and productivity.

    In his remarks after the two-day training on Wednesday in Lokoja, the SIP Focal Person, Mr Abdulkareem Onyekehi, said the workshop was part of the capacity building for its personnel across the state.

    According to Onyekehi, the programme was organised by Kogi State Office of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) in collaboration with the Center for Ethics And Self Value Orientation (CESVO).

    Onyekehi, who doubles as the Special Adviser to the State Governor on Special Projects, commended CESVO team for its professional delivery, while urging the participants to reflect the knowledge they had acquired in their official duties, considering the sensitivity of the SIP.

    He explained that the training which focused on ethical conducts of public officials, would curb corruption, ensure transparency and accountability for optimum productivity of the workers, among others.

    The focal person, then, highlighted the feats achieved by Kogi SIP office under his leadership, describing them as unprecedented.

    He commended Gov. Yahaya Bello for providing a conducive working environment for effective service delivery.

    “Kogi SIP was earlier rated as one of the 12 most organised and ethically responsible among NSIP states in Nigeria.

    “Kogi NSIP under my supervision is rated as the best NSIP State office in Nigeria by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development as well as forum of Media Group during the ministry’s one-year anniversary”, he said.

    He, however, noted that the achievements would not have been possible without the efforts and commitments of the entire management and staff of Kogi NSIP.

    The Chief Facilitator of the Training and the Executive Director of CESVO, Mr Musa Yakubu, said the training had equipped the participants with the wherewithal for optimum performance.

    He also said that the participants were expected to abide by standard ethics in the discharge of their duty to Kogi citizens.
