Word on the Street: A Peruzzi “scandal”, Nigerian polytechnics are now on strike and more

Hi friends, I apologise for not publishing Word on the Street yesterday. You see, a couple of things happened on Tuesday but none of them would be worth your time so I made a decision not to publish. You know, because I value your time and friendship. Now, on to today’s business.

“Peruzzi caught in bed with a girl”

This is the most hilarious caption I saw of the Peruzzi gist yesterday. What Peruzzi gist you ask? Well, yesterday a video of Perruzzi in bed with a girl was making rounds on social media.

The reason why the caption is hilarious is because Nigerians are such hypocrites. I mean, why does a grown man being in bed with a grown woman have to be news, asides the fact that it’s Peruzzi anyway?

Also, we could see that he was asleep in the video. I was irritated when I saw the video because I thought these celebrities make the babes they hook up with sign non disclosure agreements, apparently I thought wrong.

A video of Davido welcoming Peru to the “club” was also making rounds. If you recall, Davido has been his these shoes more than once and he’s learnt not to let “these girls sleep over”.

In a sane environment, Peruzzi would sue that babe, but this is Nigeria, many of these celebrities don’t legally protect themselves from situations like this.

Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic commence indefinite strike

Yesterday, the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) commenced an indefinite strike as a result of the government’s failure to meet their demands for funds.

According to a report by Premium Times, the government has asked for a meeting with the union on December 17 but a representative of the union says the strike will commence regardless until then.

The rep also reportedly said the government has failed to fulfil their promises following the union’s 15-day strike in 2017. Just like their university counterparts, ASUU, ASUP wants better funding for polytechnics, payment of salaries and arrears.

The state of education in Nigeria just keeps deteriorating and I’m so sorry that young Nigerians have to deal with this.

As usual, I have to advice those that are affected by the strike to maximise their stay at home. Don’t be idle, do something productive with your time.

Still on education…

Did you know that Nigerians spend ₦1 trillion annually on foreign education? Mr Ibidapo-Obe, a former Vice-Chancellor, University of Lagos (UNILAG), revealed this at the 10th Convocation of the faith-based Crawford University, Igbesa, Ogun State.

Who can blame them when the state of education in the country is in shambles? The sad part is that only a small percentage of the population can afford to pursue education outside the country, so the rest are left to suffer through irregular academic sessions as a result of strike and poor quality of education.

If the government doesn’t do anything fast, it’d only get worse. See why we need to elect the right people into government? That’s if we even know where we can find them, but that’s a story for another day.

Dahsall. Have a great weekend.
