Provost charges students on diligence, integrity

The Provost, Oke-Osanyintolu College of Health Sciences and Technology, Ido Ekiti, Dr Foluke Ajibulu, has charged students of the institution to be diligent in their studies and imbibe integrity and quality. Ajibulu, who spoke during the maiden matriculation ceremony for the 300 students of the institution at Ido Ekiti in the Ido/Osi Local Government area on Thursday, said the school had the necessary facilities and manpower to train them for society’s needs. The provost said, “The institution is out to train health practitioners and churn out quality manpower who can function effectively in community, primary, secondary, tertiary, and industrial health settings”. Ajibulu, who said that the founder, Mrs Mary Oke-Osanyintolu, placed priority on integrity and quality, disclosed that “the institution has received necessary accreditations from the regulatory bodies which found it worthy in all standards due to the state of the art facilities that are available to promote teaching, training and research”. The provost said the institution had a Joint Admission Matriculations Board approved Computer-Based Test centre that could accommodate 4,000 admission seekers, each with laptops and internet access. She lauded Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, for providing grants to some secondary schools to promote standards and excellence in the education sector, saying such a gesture should be extended to private institutions. Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Chief Mrs Monisade Afuye, who lauded the establishment of the institution by a private individual, said it had further accentuated the priority placed on the Public Private Partnership initiative by Governor Oyebanji and its efficacy in governance. Afuye described colleges as strategic to medical practice because they trained middle-level health practitioners who provided support services for other health practitioners in all private and government health institutions. The deputy governor, represented by the Permanent Secretary in her office, Mr Abayomi Opeyemi, appealed to the school management “to promote excellence premised on the fact your graduates will work in the health sector described as the most sensitive because it deals with lives. “You must put the best machinery in motion to check cases of cultism, certificate forgery, mediocrity, laziness, and lack of focus on behalf of the students and lecturers. You must promote the culture of hard work, honesty, and honor, which are the best ingredients for nation-building,” Afuye said.

Ogun touching lives with N5bn palliatives – Gov’s aide

The Special Adviser to Governor Dapo Abiodun on Media and Information, Kayode Akinmade, has said the government’s N5bn intervention rolled out to cushion the biting effects of the crunch in the economy is making deserved difference in the lives of residents of the state. Akinmade disclosed this on Monday while speaking on an Ogun State Television current affairs programme, The Roundtable. He said that through targeted interventions, the government aimed to address the current economic challenges by implementing a series of phased initiatives aimed at alleviating these burdens. Akinmade said: “Ogun is the first state to implement the Compressed Natural Gas Bus initiative, to take care of transportation challenges. The buses are currently positioned on strategic routes in the state where people are meant to pay a token fee to cover a reasonable distance. “Governor Abiodun has initiated policies with direct impacts on the people. Evidence is the ongoing Educash programme that is planned to provide a one-off N10,000 education support grant to 100,000 pupils and students of public primary and secondary schools. “The ongoing exercise is done in a transparent manner such that the beneficiaries have been full of appreciation of the gesture coming from the state government.” Akinmade added that 50,000 students of Ogun State origin in tertiary institutions across the country had been captured as part of the planned disbursements of N50,000 grant to each of them. The Special Adviser equally said that the administration of Abiodun was also providing health insurance cover for over 70,000 beneficiaries, including pregnant women, children, the elderly, market women, and other members of the informal sector. “Pregnant women, under the Ibidero Scheme, would also be provided free pre-natal care, an additional N5,000 per birth and free post-natal care in the State Hospitals and Primary Health Care Centres,” he said. Akinmade noted that provision would be made for food palliatives to include rice and other items for about 300,000 households across the state. “The state government has started offsetting the backlog of inherited deductions. To this end, the government has immediately committed N500 million monthly payments towards outstanding deductions. “It is noteworthy that we have continued to pay N10,000 transport allowance to all civil servants in the state for the last eight months,” he said.

Inadequate data makes paediatric rheumatic diseases underreported, says expert

Nigeria’s first paediatric rheumatologist and consultant paediatrician, Dr. Ayodele Faleye, has claimed that a lack of data on Paediatric Rheumatic Diseases in Nigeria has contributed to making it an underreported medical condition in Nigeria. He said between now and February 2022, over 100 cases of rheumatic diseases were recorded across the country. According to a health website, Children’s Health Queensland, paediatric rheumatic diseases refer to musculoskeletal, arthritic, and connective tissue disorders that can develop in childhood. It noted that these diseases can affect a child’s eyes, joints, skin, muscles, and gastrointestinal tract. While noting that these autoimmune and inflammatory conditions share some common symptoms such as pain, heat, and swelling, each also has specific symptoms. It, however, noted that rheumatic diseases can affect children of any age and ethnic background. Speaking during an appearance on Channels Television on Sunday, the paediatrician said that the rise in cases reported across the country can be attributed to the presence of specialists and a higher index of suspicion for the diseases in the hospital now than in the past. Faleye said, “We don’t have data, but it has been reported in a tertiary centre, the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital to be precise that 57 cases were seen in over five years. Then if that is the situation. We have case reports from other centres in Nigeria. “With my practice in Lagos for the past two years, between February 2022 and now, we have had more than 100 cases of rheumatic diseases. This is probably because we now have a specialist and within the hospital, there is now a high index of suspicion for these diseases compared to what we had in the past. “In the United States, it has been reported in a study that they diagnosed 294,000 children yearly with PRDs between 2001 and 2004, but what is happening in Nigeria, we don’t know like now. I am giving you figures just about Lagos, I don’t know what is happening in the other 35 states in Nigeria.” Faleye also lamented that paediatric rheumatology has not yet been included in the medical school curriculum as health workers have to find out about children with PRDs in the course of practice. She said, “Before we even talk about reporting, underrecognition, underdiagnosis, you know you have to diagnose before you start reporting. There is underdiagnosis and underrecognition of these diseases not only in society alone but even among health workers. “This is because paediatric rheumatology is yet to be part of the medical school curriculum, which means we were not taught in medical school but in the course of practice, we found out that these children exist here in Nigeria, and from there, we started seeing many of them in the clinic and ward. We still have a lot to do when it comes to data.” She also highlighted the most common PRDs prevalent in Nigeria, their known causes, diagnosis, and how they affect a child’s well-being. According to a study published in MDPI, paediatric rheumatic diseases are a group of chronic disorders that start in childhood and are characterized by periodic exacerbations and remissions of symptoms, with limitations in family, school, and social activities.

Take ownership of public infrastructure, LASG urges communities

The Lagos State Government has appealed to its residents to take proper care of infrastructure provided by the government in their communities to make them more resilient for public use. The state Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, made the call on his verified X handle on Monday, assuring residents that the state government would continue to embark on routine cleaning of drainage channels to free them up of dirt for durability, especially during the rainy season. Wahab said, “I would like to appeal to all residents to take ownership of the public infrastructure provided by the government in their communities, ensure they protect the canals and drains from refuse dumping, and do away with encroaching on canals and drainage rights of way. “We are cleaning up our infrastructure and making it more resilient, and this will be done continuously all year round, manually and mechanically across the state. “As part of efforts to actualise its promise to sustain a flood-free Lagos, the Lagos State Government (@followlasg) has intensified the dredging and cleaning of major drainage channels and canals across the state.” The commissioner further announced that he had given directives to contractors whose abandoned construction materials typically disrupt the free flow of traffic across the state to desist from doing so. “The team also visited Ilabere Drainage Channel, off McPherson Road, Ikoyi, where I directed immediate cleaning of the channels and served abatement notices to a contractor who placed construction materials on the road, thereby disrupting the free flow of traffic. “Also, redesigning and reconstructing the System 44 drainage channel after the removal of structures on the setback will prevent flooding in the Lekki axis when the rains commence.”

2,814 schools registered for NSCDC security arrangement – Commander

No fewer than 2,814 primary and secondary schools have registered for the Safe School Response initiative to protect their students and teachers from attacks, The PUNCH gathered on Monday. The Safe School Response is an initiative Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in response to increasing cases of attacks on schools by bandits. The Commander of the National Safe Schools Response Coordination Centre, NSCDC, Hammed Abodunrin, however, lamented that the figure was low since the portal for registration was launched six months ago. The National Safe Schools Response Coordination Centre was established by the Federal Government saddled with the responsibility of coordinating safety and security responses against violence on schools and host communities. Against the backdrop of the resurgence of the mass abduction of pupils, the Federal Government said schools in 14 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, were at risk of attacks by bandits and insurgents. The states include Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Benue, Yobe, Katsina, FCT, Kebbi, Sokoto, Plateau, Zamfara and three others. No fewer than 465 pupils, teachers, and women abducted in the past weeks are still in the custody of their captors. Fifteen pupils of an Islamiya school in Sokoto State were kidnapped two weeks ago, less than 72 hours after, 287 schoolchildren and teachers were abducted from the LEA primary school and the Government Secondary School both at Kuriga, in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State. On Friday, the Minister of State for Education, Yusuf Sununu, called on state governors to establish Safe School Response Coordination Centres to forestall attacks and kidnappings in schools. Speaking with our correspondent, Abodunrin noted that the registration by schools was a continuous effort, adding that the Federal Government was writing to state governors to remind the schools of the need to register. “The Safe School project took off simultaneously in all states but in phases. It is a four-year project that is designed to address the issue squarely between 2023 and 2026. All security agencies are involved. It began with sensitisation and training of security personnel late last year. “Schools are to register on www.nssrcc.gov.ng detailing their addresses and at least a phone number. Registration is free. Any registered school will automatically be on database with their coordinates for easy accessibility. “Registration is a continuous process. As we speak, some may be registering. We have already informed the Minister of Education (State) and he is writing all governors to remind the schools in their states. “We learnt some people are afraid that their registration may lead to taxation. This is not so. It is for the purposes of quick response and early warning when necessary. “The figure of those that have registered is still far below expectations more than six months after hosting the website.”

Atletico Ottawa loses Grant to season-ending knee surgery

Grant is recovering from surgery and did not accompany the team to its pre-season training camp in Mexico. “It’s truly unfortunate to see Jonny sidelined with this injury during our pre-season preparations,” Atletico Ottawa CEO Fernando López said in a release. “We brought him in because he’s a quality defender and was going to be an integral part of our team, especially thanks to his CPL and international experience. We wish him a quick recovery and hope to see him back on the pitch soon. “This setback means we must now act to fill the open roster spot with the cap space made available. We are already working on solutions for this season to ensure our squad remains competitive and ready for the challenges ahead.”

Gene Wilder’s widow Karen Boyer recalls actor’s final words in new documentary

Gene Wilder’s widow has recalled The Charlie and The Chocolate Factory star’s emotional last words to her before he passed away. The legendary actor passed away in 2016 of Alzheimer’s complications. Now his widow Karen Boyer has given extraordinary insight into the actor’s final words in a new documentary. “The music was playing in the background – Ella Fitzgerald was singing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow,’ and I was lying next to him, and he sat up in bed, and he said, ‘I trust you,'” she told People magazine. For all the latest on news, politics, sports, and showbiz from the USA, go to The Mirror US. READ MORE:Gene Wilder dies aged 83 after secret Alzheimers battle following glittering Hollywood career “And then he said, I love you. That’s the last thing he said.” Meanwhile, Gene’s Woman In Red co-star Kelly Le Brock has recalled some cherished memories of him. After Wilder’s death from Alzheimer’s at 83, Kelly revealed how it was the actor’s “fatherly friendship” off screen she treasured most. She told The Mirror: “Throughout my career, I met every Hollywood star and A-lister going. I’ve had them all at my table from Walter Matthau to all the greats – and none of them came close to Gene.” Kelly, who rarely gives interviews, spoke movingly about the man who helped give her that big break, at times on the verge of tears. “Gene was just so gentle, so kind and caring,” she said. “The first thing that hit you about him was his blue eyes, how gentle he was with his hands when he spoke and how -deliberate each word he uttered seem to be. He was just so very delicate. “He looked upon me at the time like a daughter. All I ever felt from him was pure fatherly love and support.” Gene death shocked his fans worldwide after he became a household name with movies including See No Evil, Hear No evil with legendary collaborator Richard Pryor. His family announced his death with his nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman saying he died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease at his home in Stamford, Connecticut. Wilder, who had battled non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1989, was known as a comic genius whose timing made him a favourite of Hollywood directors. Mr Walker-Pearlman said the actor had chosen to keep his Alzheimer’s secret so that children who knew him as Willy Wonka would not equate the whimsical character with an adult disease. The news of his death led to an outpouring of grief from Hollywood with his friend Mel Brooks leading the tributes. The director said: “Gene Wilder – one of the truly great talents of our time. He blessed every film we did with his magic & he blessed me with his friendship.” Rob Lowe wrote, “Gene Wilder as one of my earliest heroes. Blazing Saddles, Willy Wonka, are CLINICS on comic acting. Sad to hear of his passing.” Russell Crowe said: “I saw Blazing Saddles 7 times at the cinema with my school friends . George St. Cows outside. Gene Wilder, you were a genius. Rest in Peace.” Oscar-nominated Juliette Lewis added: “Thank you for the beautiful words.”
