ASUU TO CALL OFF STRIKE TOMORROW

The ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) may be called off tomorrow. To this end, the leadership of the union is billed to meet at the University of Abuja, Gwagwalada, to review the strike and outcome of dialogue with the Federal Government.

ASUU, last week, met with the Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufai in Abuja to resolve grey areas in the contentious ASUU agreement. The meeting could not produce the desired results as the lecturers turned down the minister's pleas to end the strike.

Before the meeting, Senate, as part of moves to get ASUU to call of the strike, passed a bill elongating the retirement age of lecturers from 60 to 70 years. The increase in the retirement was contained in ASUU's agreement signed by government some years ago.

Other items in the agreement include revamping the decaying infrastructure in universities, increased research funding and enhanced emoluments. Although the Federal Government signed the agreement, it had refused to honour it, leading to recurring strikes by ASUU

According to Daily Sun, an official of ASUU who pleaded anonymity revealed that significant inroads had been made in resolving the disagreement with government. He said: "We are almost at the end of the strike. Unless anything crops up we hope to call off the strike on Tuesday (tomorrow).

"We will meet at the University of Abuja on that Tuesday and I think the meeting will agree to end the strike."
Asked if the Federal Government had accepted to implement the union's agreement, he replied: "What I can tell you is that we have made some strides. We have a minister who, to some extent, is not playing politics with the agreement unlike what we had in the past."

Libyan detainees dies in prison

HUMANITARIAN and rights group, Amnesty International, has alleged that several people have died after being tortured by militias in Libyan detention centres, according to agency reports.
The group claimed to have seen patients in Tripoli, Misrata and Gheryan with open wounds to their head, limbs and back.
Meanwhile, UN human rights chief, Navi Pillay, has raised concerns about detainees being held by revolutionary forces, saying there were some 8,500 prisoners in about 60 centres.
"The majority of detainees are accused of being Gaddafi loyalists and include a large number of sub-saharan, African nationals," she said.
"The lack of oversight by the central authority creates an environment conducive to torture and ill treatment.
" My members of staff have received alarming reports that this is happening in places of detention they have visited," the UN rights chief said.
She urged the authorities to take control of these informal jails, review the cases, and deal with the prisoners in a legal framework.
Also, the United Nations (UN) Security Council has heard that Libyan militias are holding thousands of people in secret detention centres, while the interim government struggles to assert authority.
The council was told recent violence in Tripoli, Bani Walid and Benghazi highlighted the problem.
According to UN officials, over 8,000 pro-Gaddafi supporters are being held by militia groups, amid reports of torture.
However, a charity group, Medecins Sans Frontieres, said it has suspended some operations because its work was being "exploited".
The humanitarian medical organisation said it had stopped work in detention centres in the north-western city of Misrata because some patients were being brought in for care between interrogation sessions.
About four people died in clashes in Bani Walid, a former Gaddafi stronghold, on Monday.
The UN's Libya envoy, Ian Martin, told the Security Council in New York on Wednesday that those clashes between armed residents of Bani Walid and revolutionaries had been misreported as pro-Gaddafi forces retaking the city.
Nevertheless, he said it highlighted the challenge of reconciling the former leader's supporters and the rebels that had defeated them.
Militias were responsible for fatal clashes in Tripoli and fighting in other towns this month, he said.
"The former regime might have been toppled, but the harsh reality is that the Libyan people continue to have to live with its deep-rooted legacy," said Martin.
He described that legacy as "weak, at times absent, state institutions, coupled with the long absence of political parties and civil society organisations, which render the country's transition more difficult".
Martin said some steps had been taken towards demobilising ex-combatants.
But the government was struggling to establish its legitimacy, he added, with weapons freely available and various armed brigades having unclear lines of command and control.
While authorities had so far successfully contained any outbreaks of violence, they could escalate and widen in scope, he warned.
Libyan Defence Minister Osama al-Juwali, who has been negotiating with militiamen in Bani Walid, told British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) yesterday that the situation was stable.
As al-Juwali arrived, National Transitional Council (NTC) forces - loyal to the new government - gathered outside the town.
They were heavily armed and apparently poised to attack if talks failed, although one commander insisted they were there for "reconciliation".
Fighters in the town have reportedly expelled NTC forces into the surrounding desert.
One local official told the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) that 90 per cent of the town was under militia control.
Medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said some officials had sought to "exploit and obstruct" its work.
"Patients were brought to us for medical care between interrogation sessions, so that they would be fit for further interrogation. This is unacceptable," said general director Christopher Stokes.
"Our role is to provide medical care to war casualties and sick detainees, not to repeatedly treat the same patients between torture sessions."

Bill gates boost aids funding with $750m

MICROSOFT chairman Bill Gates yesterday pledged additional $750 million to global AIDS fund and urged governments to continue their support to save lives.
"These are tough economic times, but that is no excuse for cutting aid to the world's poorest," he said in Davos at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.
According to Reuters, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria announced two days ago that its executive director, Michel Kazatchkine, was stepping down early following criticism over misuse of funds and cuts in funding.
The public-private organisation, which has the backing of celebrities like rock star Bono, accounts for around a quarter of international financing to fight HIV and AIDS, as well as the majority of funds to fight TB and malaria.
But it has been forced to cut back and said last year it would make no new grants or funding until 2014.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is giving $750 million through a promissory note – a fresh injection in addition to the $650 million that the Gates charity has contributed since the fund was launched 10 years ago.
While that will give an immediate boost, more is needed from governments, which have provided the bulk of the $22.6 billion that has been raised by the Geneva-based organisation to date for its work in 150 countries

Boko Haram warns sultan

Members of the boko haram sect has issued a direct order to the sultan of sokoto ALHAJI MOHAMMED SAID ABUBAKAR 111 to intervene in the release of its members held at various prisons across the state or put the lives of his citizens at risk.

The message given to the newsmen in maidugiri by boko haram spokesman Abu Qaqa reads:

This is an open message to the Sultan(Emir) of sokoto, Alhaji Mohammed Said Abubakar, the speaker of the house of representative, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, and the acting governor of the state.

Before we visited kano, we wrote open letters to the senior citizens there on the imperative of releasing our members but nobody cares to talk. Indeed we sent three warnings to kano.

What happened in kano would be inevitable in sokoto unless you intervene and secure the immediate and unconditional release of our members who were specifically arrested in the city of sokoto last week thursday.

The spokesman also went against the suggestion of dialogue by the president saying, "our people are being trailed and killed on one hand and on the other hand, they are asking us to give up arms and come out. This is impossible "

My question is that if they were all found dead, when did the robbers mention that a serving soldier gave them the uniform?? Perhaps through the spirit....
