Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has appealed to striking lecturers in all higher institutions across the country to be patient with the Federal Government on the lingering strike action.

Adamu said that "the strike would soon be called off."

The Minister spoke on the sideline of the 10th convocation ceremony of the Federal Polytechnic Offa, Kwara State on Thursday.

Adamu said that efforts were ongoing to address their demands.

The minister said that progress and development are usually scarce where there is no peace.

"Peaceful coexistence is very important in our educational institutions because effective learning can only take place in a peaceful environment."

The Minister further commended management, staff and students of the Polytechnic "for sustaining a peaceful academic environment."

Also speaking, the Rector of the institution, Dr. Lateef Olatunji, pointed out that the 2017/2018 set produced 2,352 HND graduates including 796 full-time students and 1,767 part-time students in the OND category.

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), arrived in Washington, DC on Thursday.

The former vice-president is expected to speak at the Chamber of Commerce on Friday, from 2:30pm to 4pm.

The private roundtable, which is hosted by the US Chamber of Commerce and the US Africa Business Centre, is expected to hold at 1615 H street, NW 20062.

Recall that we reported in December 2018 that Atiku had been issued with a US visa for the first time in 13 years.

TheCable reports that the former vice-president, who has been unable to enter the US for years, arrived in the US on Thursday.

His row with the US authorities began after the FBI investigated a bribery scandal involving William Jefferson, former US congressman, in 2004.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has repeatedly said he was running away from investigations by the US authorities.

Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the APC, had said Atiku could not travel everywhere, asking Nigerians to elect President Muhammadu Buhari whom he said could go everywhere.

"We have a president whose integrity cannot be faulted anywhere in the world, but the PDP has a presidential candidate who can only travel to Dubai," Oshiomhole had said.

Atiku was accused of demanding a bribe of $500,000 to facilitate the award of contracts to two American telecommunication firms in Nigeria.

The FBI had searched his residence in the posh neighbourhood of Potomac, Maryland, but no money was found.

The investigators had videotaped Jefferson, who was the congressman representing Louisiana, receiving $100,000 worth of $100 bills which he claimed was meant for Atiku, but the former vice-president has consistently denied the allegation.

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo was said to have been very instrumental in the process which made the US grant Atiku the visa.

Atiku is expected to hold consultative forum with Nigerians in diaspora.

4 men took off all their clothes to compare penis sizes and question if 'bigger really is better'.The men, who are all strangers to each other, stripped off for a new segment called Show Me Your Junk. The aim of the show is to break down stigmas around the human body.Of the four men, two were well endowed while the other two were average-sized men.The well-endowed men, Rome and Jerrell, compared their assets with Kenneth and Nick, who are average-sized.Before they took off their robe, they spoke about their penis and even massaged it to get the blood flowing.   Nick even revealed that he won Brooklyn's 'smallest penis' contest in 2013. When asked how happy he is with his size, he replies "completely happy".He says:I've heard this question in the past, it's like asking are you upset because you're short, or are you upset because you're too tall or whatever.It's the way I am, the way I was born.That's naturally who I am and I'm fine with it. He added: Clearly I'm a grower not a shower. Rome, who is well endowed revealed he's been told he has a "big schlong", and it was at "seven-and-a-half" inches the last time he checked.  Kenneth said of his penis size:I used to hate it in High School because I remember Asian penis being the butt of most jokes.And I'm as grower not a shower. I realise how much I was torturing myself all those years. When they finally stripped, Rome complimented Kenneth, telling him he has a "sculpted body", while Kenneth replies Rome, telling him that his body hair has a "good-looking layout".  When asked what sex positions they find easier, Kenneth reveals anal is his preference.He says: "I call it anal friendly. That's how I advertise my cock."The men even went as far as giving each other's penises nicknames.

Campaigns rallies are often embellished with drama, or turn out dramatic itself, and no candidate or party member is immune to such drama scenes.

President Muhamadu Buhari, on Wednesday, during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign rally in Lokoja, Kogi state, made a mistake about the time he assumed office.

The president had said he assumed office on May 19, 2015, instead of May 29.

"I'm very impressed at this very short notice…you turned out for so many hours standing in the sun to see us and to listen to us," Buhari had said.

"I assure you that I am very aware of your appreciation of the efforts for what we were able to deliver since came in 19th of May, 2015.

Less than a day later, the president made another gaffe during the presidential rally in Warri, Delta state.

Buhari was to hand over the party's flag to Great Ogboru, the state governorship candidate of the party.

However, Buhari said, "I am handing over this flag of honour to our presidential candidate."

A man on the stage to his left corrected him, saying "gubernatorial",  but Buhari responded with "to our senatorial candidate".

Again, the man corrected him, saying "gubernatorial" and this time, Buhari said "governortorial candidate".

This happened less than 24 hours after some of the president's critics concluded that he had a woeful outing at the town hall meeting anchored by Kadaira Ahmed, media personality.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has released the final list of presidential candidates ahead of the forthcoming February elections.

The list which was signed by INEC's Secretary, Rose Oriaran-Anthony was released on its official Twitter handle, with names of the political parties, their presidential candidates and running mates.

On the list are candidates and their running mates to include president Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo both of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

You won't believe what this former anorexic and drug addict now looks like after she spent a whopping $1million on surgery (Photos)A former anorexic and drug addict reportedly spent a whopping $1 million (£776,370) on surgery to help her recover from her struggles.28-year-old Klara Lima originally from the Czech Republic otherwise known as 'Kitana Savage', developed anorexia after losing both parents at a young age and also became addicted to drugs.   But after having three Brazilian butt-lifts and four breast enhancements including botox and facial fillers to transform her look, Klara Lima who is now taking part in modelling shoots and also trying to launch her musical career, believes she is now the woman she always wanted to be after spending $1million on surgery.   Speaking about her troubles and how she confronted them, Klara who travels between London, Miami, and Dubai said: 'I got into drug addiction heavy, like big time. I would do cocaine, not to be hungry.  'I was doing from one to five grams a day. I was smoking two packets of cigarettes a day. I was drinking booze. I ate fast food. I completely gave up on my life.'The self-protection instinct worked well because when I actually see something is not working for me anymore, I just give it up. I just leave it.  'I like to transform. I like to be better. I didn't want to look like an average European girl or even a beautiful European girl. I wanted to look like the way I look right now.'Speaking about how her childhood was a contrast between luxury, due to her parents wealth, and suffering. She said: 'My childhood was like heaven and hell. I had a luxury childhood but I was bullied in school so it was like 50-50.  'As a kid, I was definitely very wild. I was escaping to nightclubs since age 12. I just did whatever I wanted. I was smoking weed. I was drinking since I was a kid.'Klara who lost her parents in a plane crash when she was just 17, inherited her parent's wealth. Her engineering father founded a successful air conditioning company before his death.  Speaking on the wealth she inherited, she said: 'It's very dangerous to give a lot of money to a young person without any guardians or control,' she explained.'I developed anorexia and bulimia. I started to do drugs. I gained 40 kilos. People would be laughing at me because I looked very ugly. 'Bulimia is actually the worst. I guess it's worst because this is something you can't really control.'Anorexia is all about control, so it became obsession. But Bulimia is obsession without control.'
