1. Time To Go And Meet Your Favorite Lecturer

You, yes you. You have had peace of mind for the last 6 months. But in the next three weeks you will try to submit your assignment after the deadline and someone will shout “Will you get out of my office?!”

Why? Because the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has directed the re-opening of academic activities in the State, as from September 14. This resumption will be for tertiary institutions in the State, after which primary and Secondary schools in the state can resume from September 21 – subject to continuing review.

Sanwo-Olu made the statement at the Lagos State Marina House while addressing Lagosians on report from lockdown restrictions. He also said tourism and hospitality businesses will open shortly.

2. Conjoined Twins Separated, Again, In Yola

The Federal Medical Center Yola has successfully separated another set of conjoined twins, the third time since 2013 and 2018.

These conjoined twins were brought from Yenogoa, in Bayelsa State, and are children of Mr Raphael Ayebaiemi and Mrs Godsgift Ibiyyefa who are unemployed secondary school leavers.

The twins were airlifted by the Nigerian Air Force back back to Bayelsa State, after they had initially been taken to Yola free of charge by the same Nigerian Air Force.

The Mother of the twins has also stated that the successful operation saved her from being called a witch and an evil person.

3. Ghana Replies Nigeria: “This You?”

The Ghanaian Information Minister, Kojo Nkrumah, has replied his Nigerian counterpart, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stating that Ghana is committed to maintaining friendly relations with all of its sister countries, including Nigeria.

Recall that issues like the demolition of the Nigerian High Commission building in Ghana and the exhorbitant licence fees charged on Nigerian traders are among some of the issues causing the row between the two countries.

The minister said the land of the high commission was not demolished by the government but by the “Osu stool”, and that the Ghanaian President will speak to Buhari on friendly relations between the two countries.
