Reverend Dr Chris Oyakhilome, who announced the donation during his speech, also explained the rationale behind his donation. According to him, the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa, having greatly influenced his life and ministry, it was only natural for him to feel the need to do same for the Youths.

“The Archbishop Benson Idahosa was one of the most remarkable and inspiring personalities of the 20th Century. It is a fact of life that those who did not have the privilege to meet him are blessed to meet him through many of us.

“The impact of the archbishop on me as an individual is unquantifiable. Many times, people would ask me why I talk about the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa more than anybody.          “It will surprise you to know that as a young man, I was working with the Archbishop in the mail room in the Church of God Mission in Benin City.

“I was blessed to have worked with the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa. While working with him, I had the blessing and benefit of seeing the archbishop pass by my table every day to his office,” Reverend Dr Chris Oyakhilome said.

Commending Pastor Chris for his strides in the Christendom, the vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ernest B. Izevbigie, said:

“A prophet is without honor in his own home but we have decided to honor you and let the world see that you are honored even in your own home.”
He then called on well-meaning Nigerians who have the resources to support institutions of learning in the country as they are organizations committed to the development of the best potentials in Nigeria.

EXAM PLAN GONE WRONG IN BIU!!!

Shock is the first reaction one can experience when realizing the extent a boy can go for a girl.  They call it love, but as sweet as that sounds, it is still unbelievable that the male species could risk so much for the opposite sex.

biu gate In Benson Idahosa University, things are no different. The news hit fast around campus that a 400 level law student attempted to write an exam paper for a 100 level Business Admin female student. After having their plan all figured out, the boy was convinced and determined on writing the paper for her.

However, as fate would have it, the invigilator of the paper turned out to be one of the lecturers who happened to have taught the boy in 300 level.  She recognized him immediately, called him by name and questioned him on why he was having a paper meant for Business Admin 100 level students. The invigilator called the attention of other invigilators to the scene, providing evidence with unreasonable doubt that the boy who was in a higher level and another department all together was attempting to write the paper.

Being put on the spotlight, he had no choice but to admit to his attempted offence and now stands the chance of suspension and possible expulsion.

 

UNIPORT STUDENTS DEMAND PEACE PROTEST.

UNIPORT1 They say you never know what you’ve got good until its gone. Sadly, the students of the University of Port Harcourt had to learn this in the most unimaginable way Possible. They were greatly befuddled after hearing the tragic news of  the death of a male student with the resumption of a new semester.  It was said that the student got hit by a car shortly after New Year celebrations before he could get to school. Beginning the New Year with the loss of a student was an unfortunate incident that no one expected.

The aura of sadness and worry had the school tightly enveloped and this resulted in the need and demand of a Peace Protest by the students. Last week, the students had all gathered and expressed their grief and complaint, demonstrating their sorrow and discomfort of losing a student with fear of losing another.

They demanded a change.

They demanded confirmation of protection.

They believed that there was a possibility of a kind of something or a force holding them from a successful profiting semester. For these students, things needed to change for a better, safer school life.
