This outstanding feat is noteworthy and highly commendable as it shows that Ogitech is a pace setter amongst the league of other institutions in Nigeria.

SPECIAL REPORT: NAOSS OGITECH CHAPTER

As received by NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF OGUN STATE STUDENTS (NAOSS) OGITECH CHAPTER ABOUT THE ONGOING ONLINE LECTURE,
DAY 1 LECTURE DELIVERED BY COMRADE JESUTOFUNMI COLLINS (NAOSS NATIONAL WELFARE DIRECTOR) ON BEHALF OF COMRADE OGUNROMBI GBEMILEKE PKA O’LEKE(NAOSS NATIONAL PRESIDENT)
DATE:24TH JULY 2020
TOPIC: SURVIVING AMIDST DEPRESSION

DEPRESSION
A Global Public Health Concern;
Depression is a significant contributor to the global burden of disease and affects people in all communities across the world. Today, depression is estimated to affect 350 million people. The World Mental Health Survey conducted in 17 countries found that on average about 1 in 20 people reported having an episode of depression in the previous year. Depressive disorders often start at a young age; they reduce people’s functioning and often are recurring. For these reasons, depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide in terms of total years lost due to disability. The demand for curbing depression and other mental health conditions is on the rise globally. A recent World Health Assembly called on the World Health Organization and its member states to take action in this direction (WHO, 2012).

What is depression?
Depression is a common mental disorder that presents with depressed mood, loss of interest or
pleasure, decreased energy, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, and poor concentration. Moreover, depression often comes with symptoms of anxiety. These problems can become chronic or recurrent and lead to substantial impairments in an individual’s ability to take care of his or her everyday responsibilities. At its worst,
depression can lead to suicide. Almost 1 million lives are lost yearly due to suicide, which translates to 3000 suicide deaths every day. For every person who completes a suicide, 20 or more may attempt to end his or her life (WHO, 2012).
There are multiple variations of depression that a person can suffer from, with the most general distinction being depression in people who have or do not have a history of manic episodes.

end his or her life (WHO, 2012). There are multiple variations of depression that a person can suffer from, with the most general distinction being depression in people who have or do not have a history of manic episodes. The WHO Intervention Guide, preferable
treatment options consist of basic psycho social support combined with antidepressant or psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavior therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy or problem-solving treatment. Antidepressant medications and brief,structured forms of psychotherapy are effective. Antidepressants can be a very effective form of treatment for moderate-severe depression but are not the first line of treatment for cases of mild or sub-threshold depression. As an adjunct to care by specialists or in primary health care, self-help is an important approach to help people with depression outcomes for people with depression and anxiety disorders. The intervention consisted of case management and psycho social interventions led by a trained lay health counselor, as well as supervision by a mental health specialist and medication from a primary care physician. The trial found that patients in the intervention group were more likely to have recovered at 6 months than patients in the control group, and therefore that an intervention by a trained lay counselor can lead to an improvement in recovery from depression (Patel et al, 2010).
Despite the known effectiveness of treatment for depression, the majority of people in need do not receive it. Where data is available, this is glob￾ally fewer than 50%, but fewer than 30% for most regions and even less than 10% in some countries.
Barriers to effective care include the lack of resources, lack of trained providers, and socialist stigma associated with mental disorders.

Reducing the burden of depression
While the global burden of depression poses a substantial public health challenge, both at the social and economic levels as well as the clinical level, there are a number of well-defined and evidence￾based strategies that can effectively address or combat this burden. For common mental disorders such as depression being managed in primary care settings, the key interventions are treatment with generic antidepressant drugs and brief psychotherapy. Economic analysis has indicated that treating depression in primary care is feasible, affordable and cost-effective.

The prevention of depression is an area that deserves attention. Many prevention programs implemented across the lifespan have provided evidence on the reduction of elevated levels of depressive symptoms. Effective community approaches to prevent depression focus on several actions surrounding the strengthening of protective factors and the reduction
of risk factors. Examples of strengthening protective factors include school-based program targeting cognitive, problem-solving and social skills of children. Adolescents as well as exercise programs for the elderly. Interventions for parents of children with conduct problems aimed at improving parental psycho social well-being by information provision and by training in behavioral childbearing strategies may reduce parental depressive symptoms, with improvements in children’s outcomes.

Conclusion
Depression is a mental disorder that is pervasive in the world and affects us all. Unlike many large￾scale international problems, a solution for depression is at hand. Efficacious and cost-effective treatments are available to improve the health and the lives of the millions of people around the world suffering from depression. On an individual, community, and national level, it is time to educate ourselves about depression and support those who are suffering from this mental disorder.

FACT SHEET
Depression around the World
Who gets depression varies considerably across the populations of the world. Lifetime prevalence rates range from approximately 3 percent in Japan to 16.9 percent in the United States, with most countries falling somewhere between 8 to 12 percent.

(1) The lack of standard diagnostic screening criteria makes it difficult to compare depression rates cross-nation.In addition, cultural differences and different risk factors affect the expression of the disorder.
2.We do know that the symptoms of depression can be identified in all cultures.
3. There are certain risk factors that make some more likely to get depression than others.
4. Economic disadvantages, that is, poverty.
5. Social disadvantages, such as low education.
6. Genetics If you have someone in your immediate￾ family with the disorder, you are two to three times more likely to develop depression at some point in your life.
•7.Exposure to violence.
•8.Being separated or divorced, in most countries,especially for men.
•9. Other chronic illness.

Getting Help, Worldwide
There are many possible treatments for depression; and equally, if not more, barriers to getting treatment. Fewer than 25 percent of people across the world have access to treatments for depression. L

10.The World Health Organization recently studied what it calls the “treatment gaps” in mental health care and found that worldwide, the median rate for untreated depression is approximately 50 percent.

11. In some countries, fewer than 10% of people with depression receive any treatment.

Living with Depression

Living with depression, especially if it is chronic or recurring, can make you feel exhausted, over￾whelmed and helpless. These feelings can often make you want to give up. Recognizing that these negative thoughts are part of your depression is one step toward recovery. It is important to take good care of yourself throughout your treatment. This can be hardest in the beginning, especially before your treatment begins to work.

Taking Care of Yourself

Depression is real. It is an illness of the brain that usually requires some form of treatment. It is important for you to recognize this, to take the illness seriously, and to take good care of yourself.

Depression can make even the simplest parts of daily living very difficult. If possible, there are some things you can do to make yourself feel better, even
if only slightly. Your health care practitioner may make some of these suggestions as well.

• Consider some form of exercise daily. Exercise is good for both physical and mental health.
Establishing a regular exercise routine will help maintain a healthy weight and reduce stress

• levels, important for someone with depression.

• Try to eat a healthy balanced diet every day. A healthy diet, which includes whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, protein, and is low in fat, will help keep your body healthy.

• There are many relaxation techniques to lower your stress, including meditation and deep breathing, which can help with depression. These techniques, widely used around the world, are a low-cost way to lower stress.

• Maintain healthy sleep habits, as much as possible. Set up a regular routine for bedtime and
morning to be sure you are getting enough sleep, but not too much sleep.

• Avoid and reduce stress. Stress, both at work and home, can increase your feelings o depression. It is important to avoid stress in your daily life.

• Keep your working hours predictable and manageable. Openly communicate with family members and loved ones about what is going on in your life to foster better relationships and elicit their support.

• Limit or curtail alcohol or substance use or abuse. Use of these substances may worsen your symptoms of depression or interfere with your prescribed medications.

• Create a daily routine. Organizing and planning your day will help to manage the many daily life
tasks that you have to do. Create and maintain a monthly calendar.

• Be patient with yourself. For someone with depression, even the smallest tasks can seem impossible.Seeking Support

A network of family and friends can make all the difference for someone with depression. Seek out friends and family, as well as local organizations, for help in taking care of you.
Friends and Family
Family members and close friends can be a significant source of support for you in coping with your depression.

• They can make you feel like you are not alone.

• They can listen to you.

• They can help you to find resources and learn all
you can about depression.

• They can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle
every day.

• They can help you stick to your treatment plan.

Seek out friends who will stick by you and help you through tough times. Ask them for specific help with daily routines, such as getting to therapy, exercising with you and encouraging you to take good care of
yourself.

Peer Groups Support

Peer support groups or group meetings with other people with depression, can be helpful for some people. These groups, especially when well run and organized, provide insight into day-to-day coping with the disorder.

Research has shown these groups to be helpful in particular areas, such as providing support,
helping participants cope with problems and crises, and enabling participants to stick to treatment plans.

However, a recent systematic review found that more research is needed to fully understand and evaluate what conditions make these groups effective. Currently most preexistence-to-peer communities have been evaluated only in conjunction with additional interventions and interactions with health￾care professionals that coincide with participation in
support groups.

To locate a peer support group in your community,
consult referral hotlines of professional organizations, including your state, regional or provincial mental health association. Another possibility is a peer support group on the Internet. Currently, there are multiple organizations running these groups, reaching across the world. There is limited amount of research on the quality of these support groups and their impact on the symptoms of depression.

Nonetheless, depending upon where you live, it may be worthwhile investigating whether an online support group could be helpful for you. As with any online service, please executioner when considering it and spend some time researching the organization and the kind of support group they are running. This could include corresponding with the organization and asking them how they determine who can participate in the group and how they monitor the group. Or talk to your healthcare provider or another depression organization to see if they have heard about this group. Finally, another possibility is to ask to talk with or correspond with someone
who has participated in the support group. Although peer support groups are not for everyone, participation may make you feel less isolated and alone, and provide you with an opportunity to see how others with the disorder are successfully managing their lives. They also offer structured activities to cope with your illness.

Mental Health Organizations
Many local community organizations, together with national organizations, can help by providing information and resources on many issues, from finding mental health service providers to resolving insurance matters or employment issues. See the Resources section at the end of this document for local organizations.

Recovery

In many places around the world, mostly developed nations, there has been increasing emphasis on recovery and active illness management for people with mental disorders, including depression. Born out of substance abuse and addiction programs, the
recovery model emphasizes the following:

Finding hope;

• Personal empowerment in your own treatment
and wellness;

• Expanding your knowledge about your illness
and its treatments;

• Establishing support networks and seeking
inclusion;

• Developing and refining coping strategies;

• Creating a secure home base;

• Defining a sense of meaning for your life.
Some have pointed to two different models of recovery, one developed by practitioners, the other by patients/mental health consumers. Both, however, involve these three points:

(1) Each person’s path to
recovery is unique;

(2) Recovery is a process, not an
end point; and

(3) Recovery is an active process, in which the individual takes responsibility for the out￾come, with success depending primarily on collaboration with helpful friends, family, the community and professional supports.
There are hundreds of recovery-based resources across the world.

In the United States, one such pro￾gram is the Wellness Recovery Action Plan, which recommends five actions for recovery:

1) Believe in yourself and your recovery.

2) Take personal responsibility.

3) Educate yourself.

4) Stand up for yourself.

5) Learn how to both receive and give support.

Summary
Living with depression can be difficult.

You will need a lot of support to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stick to your treatment.

Family members and
close friends can play critical roles in your treatment plan. Peer support groups and mental health organizations may also be sources of support for coping with depression.

There is a growing emphasis on a recovery model across the world that involves empowering people with mental illness to take charge of their own illness, their treatment and their lives.

Student calls out Ogun state government via letter

An OGITITE who happened to be speaker of the Association of Mass Communication Students (AMACOS); Rt.Hon Afolabi Emmanuel has put to writing an open letter to the government of Ogun state.

This he made public by submitting to us for publication. The letter reads;

Your Excellency sir,

I will like to commend your tremendous efforts toward the achievements so far in office. I cannot but say thank you for Sir.

I write with great mirth, embedded with consciousness and bearing in mind, the rear privilege it bestowed on me.

Primo, I will like to once again painstakingly commend the great achievements your government has so far birthed; this of course is a precursor to the greater things to be accomplished.
Your excellency, beyond sentiments, Ogun state is fast departing from past shenanigans of projects without human faces.

While your actions so far are commendable sir, there are still many areas that are so vital to human life’s which I will like your government to improve on.

They are:
1. Bad roads
2. Insecurities
3. Unemployment
4. Good health facilities

1. Bad roads: Sir, there is no need for rhetoric’s when discussions about the bad state of many roads in the state come to fore.
The state of our roads has become a night mare to the entire citizens of Ogun state. Many roads are no longer motorable and are crying for repair.
The condition of this roads has brought about many negative changes like, increase in transportation fare, damaging of cars, constant accident, fighting among road users to Lane and lots more.

Your Excellency Sir, I had tears running down my eyes and my feet shivering with fear because we are now in the rainy season. I am certain that many citizens in affected areas are also sad that their problem is going to be aggravated with the rainy season already here.

Many of this roads which are only sand filled by the citizens themselves will be destroyed by massive erosion and then become a flash point for armed robbery and accident.

Funnily enough, most of the affected roads; Agbado, Oke aro, Ijoko, Matogun, Lambe, Lusada, Atan, Agbara, Igbesa are of untold economy importance to the State.

2 . Insecurities: I know it is not easy with dealing with insecurities.
To be feeling vulnerable, unsafe and unable to find comfort in anything, it can take a huge toll on you, mentally, physically but mostly emotionally. I know you just can’t seem to stop worrying about what people may say behind you. No matter how hard you work hard and try, it is never enough.
It is not that security in the state is that bad but definitely, there is room for improvement and that is what the people seek.

3. Unemployment: Sir, I also commend your efforts about the issue of unemployment in the state, but it is still enough sir. There is need for more job opportunities for our teeming youths and a foresight mechanism that can take care of upcoming graduates.

4. Health Facilities: Covid 19 has really exposed the health sector of the State and the Nation at large. It really shows that our hospital are not well equipped. Sir, we need an improvement in the health sector and which you have been doing.

Finally, I humbly plead that you use your God given position, backed by the votes of the Ogun State people to ensure that you create job opportunities, adequate securities, good health facilities, re construction of bad roads and construction of new one.

Thank you sir!

Long live Ogun State!!!

What every youth needs to know about being in a Relationship and Situationship

Situationship does not really mean you are in a sexual relationship

Situationship is having someone you call your boyfriend or girlfriend, someone you hang out with, hold hands and sometimes there’s intimacy.  In situationship only your friends know you have a boyfriend, in a case whereby your parents are involved you introduce your boyfriend to them as your friend. Most girls mistake situationship for relationship.

According to Mrs Temitope Awosile Onyemenem, a student adviser she said “The duration of how a guy and his girlfriend stay together depends on the girl”. There will surely be issues but every lady needs to learn the word PATIENCE.

Men will always be men, they will go in search of girls, they all want to have  SIDE CHICK. In this aspect all want they want is situationship, they want to hangout while their wife take care of the kids at home. To the single guys, its the lady/woman who decides if its situationship she wants or relationship.

The difference between being in a situationship and relationship is that; in situationship you give the guy your mind. In relationship you give your partner your heart.

Now the question is why

Reason why you give a guy your mind in situationship is to prevent them from breaking your heart. Before  a guy finally tells you ” it is over” he already broke up with you long time ago, by then you must noticed this ATTITUDE you make use of your sense organ (eyes nose, ear, tongue and skin) its either you make amendment before he finally breaks the news or you move on after the breakup

Situationship most times leads to relationship. Relationship means “I have known him, I’m okay with his attitude and I’m ready to accept him for who he is”.  Then you can give your partner your heart because you are planning towards  a successful marriage .

Does a cheating partner means that the relationship is  over?

May 29, a view at DEMOCRACY. “Webinar 2019” HOST: Adebola Adedeji Samuel Hnd 1 Microbiology.

seminar conducted over the Internet
(WHATSAPP).

THEME;
°Is the Nigerian government really justifying the role and purposes of a DEMOCRATIC system?
°May 29,democracy day! Is there democracy in government dealings with Nigerian students?

first speaker;
Commr. Jonathan Oladimeji, pka Emperor dtwo.
(former AMACOS ogitech chapter president, former national campus writer general secretary, current National Association of Nigeria Campus Editors President).

And to a layman Democracy is the government of the people,by the people and for the people. Which means democracy is open to all to participate in government.
According to Mariam Webster dictionary ; Democracy is ; “a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.”
In order to not be grandiloquent about stating the purpose(s) of democracy it is important to first understand “democracy “ is a system or way government that allows everyone (citizenry) to participate in the governing of a state or nation.
In Nigeria today Democracy is said to be in place but are we sure Democracy is been practiced?
Democracy might be expensive to operate but so far across the world it is still preferable as a system or way of government.
Where Democracy exists, unity and freedom to exercise fundamental human right is granted.
During the military regime in Nigeria the citizenry who are civilians were not allowed to operate in government.
Apart from democracy no system of government allows more participants and freedom to human rights. Democracy operate freely without oppression.
Until the day the military handed over power to an elected civilian government in 1999, marking the beginning of the longest continuous civilian rule since Nigeria’s independence from colonial rule in 1960.
Only militants have the right to take over power during this regime. Therefore, fundamental human rights of the civilians were been threatened. Many of the head of states, their lives are been threatened out of power.
With the above statements on democracy it is clear that Nigeria is not displaying enough features to be called a democratic state.

In a democratic state elections will not end up in riot and dismals.
MKO Abiola remains the father of democracy in Nigeria for his victory on June 12,1999 elections.
In a democratic system power rotates among the people and not just a set of people. Is that happening in Nigeria?
At this juncture I want to proffer possible solutions in order for us to have a better display/practice of democracy.
The Nigerian government must ensure that the voice of the mass is been heard and acted as demanded because democracy is the government of the people.
As good as Democracy is the greedy Nigerian leaders/politicians still find it difficult to just abide by the rule of democracy which says that elections must be free and fair in a democratic state.
The youths must be given chance in government because democracy does not allow the old age alone.

Second speaker;
Comr. Leader Egwuoku Azuka Benjamin
(SUG caretaker committee Pro, pioneer NAEEES PRESIDENT).

Leader is taking us on the topic below Ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s swearing in as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for his second term, what do you think should be improved especially in the education sector? In order to make democracy justifiable.
Good evening distinguished ladies and gentle men…
Afore note :
I want to congratulate our dear country Nigeria for a successful swearing in today… We pray d good lord to make dis time favorable….
I also want to commend the first speaker for his wonderful keynote address….

DEMOCRACY:
A CONCISE TOOL FOR NATION DEVELOPMENT…
Let me consicely say that if a nation is to be built, we need consider so many factors that would make that nation a developed one… One of the key factors that broadens light to d path of the just citizens is EDUCATION…
If I am Going to refer to any definition at all I will take the proper definition of democracy as :The government of the people, for the people and by the people, so in other words democracy is a proactive governance that pulls along the citizenry of her country side by side… It means we are all decision makers in matters
If a national suffers in educational sector is means that the system in charge of the administration is faulty…
Taking into concise statistics how well our educational system has suffered setback
It will interest us to knw that our annual budget as a country comes in trillion, and we see a very little slice out of this budget Goin into education… As time will not permit me to relate the actual amount(we can make the findings ourselves)…. UNESCO Severely warned our country about the fall out of our budgeted educational cost fall out… From 20% to 15% yet we went along side to release a budget that cripples education in our dear country…
Enough of this my heavy language so it will not turn into blames… I will prefer a solution as it can be countered later…

1. I expect this next ride of administration to give us a functioning EDUCATION MINISTRY
A functional ministry that will oversee the affairs of our country educational sector…
The course of choosing an anointed minister for education is gone, we have technocrats that can handle our sector and it will work…

2.Adequate funding of educational bill on the senate floor
Sometimes wen I listen or watch our plenary sections I just give up, instead of the so called senators to sponsor viable bills to b passed into law, u will hear bills like cattle grazing, funding of charcoal as a mean of lighting… In a country that produces tons of student every year… Our bill as regards education should be matured…
Funny as it stands that our dear country coughed out over 200billion naira for EFCC to build prisons… Senator Murray Bruce had to say to them, that we spend more on prison than education so that wen students leave school they will end in prison… I hope we all understand his point of view

3.let us embrace UNESCO statistics for educational growth… We encourage British curriculum, most of our secondary school runs summer programs.. So why can’t we just embarece the UNESCO attitude towards education…
As I call it a wrap on here… I expect more to be done on educational system, I expect proactive minister for education, I expect a technocrats that wil handle the system, I expect a change in budget allocation for education sector….
I take sole responsibility for the errors that must have occurred… I say That I am also prone to learning.

Without further a due, I will like to go straight to the topic before me which says:
Is there democracy in government dealings with Nigerian students?
I won’t like to drag us back with the meaning and history of democracy as other speakers have already said a lot about it.
Nevertheless, I will still shed some light on it quickly….
The term “Democracy” is derived from two Greek words “demo” (people) and “kratos” (rule). meaning rule by the (simple) people.
Abraham Lincoln said and I quote; “The ballot is stronger than the bullet” and “no man is good enough to govern another man without other’s consent” that is why DEMOCRACY came into existence.

Little briefings

Democracy is 20 years old in Nigeria today and the journey, however, began when AbdulSalam Abubakar handed over power to Olusegun Obasanjo on May 29, 1999, and since then, the day has been set aside to celebrate democracy.
Now permit me to rephrase the topic before me to; *Is there democracy in government dealings with education? because _there is nothing like education without the students_.
One fundamental principle of democracy is that it allows people to participate in decisions that affect their lives. It follows that in a healthy democratic society, all those who are involved in the education system, namely teachers, parents and students, can have a say.
Now let’s digress a little bit to Nigeria education system….
Countries experiencing successful democratic transitions can thus, over the coming years, expect increased public spending on education, lower schooling fees, a larger share of their children enrolled into primary and secondary school, and that their youth will, on average, spend more years in school.
What are the systems of education?

The term education system generally refers to public schooling, not private schooling, and more commonly to kindergarten through high school programs.
Schools or school districts are typically the smallest recognized form of “education system” and countries are the largest. States are also considered to have education systems.
Simply put, an education system comprises everything that goes into educating public-school students at the federal, state, or community levels:
Laws, policies, and regulations of public funding, resource allocations, and procedures for determining funding levels. State and district administrative offices, school facilities, and transportation vehicles.
Human resources, staffing, contracts, compensation, and employee benefits
Books, computers, teaching resources, and other learning materials and, of course, countless other contributing elements.
I won’t be going into details to save time…
Moreover my leader Comr. Azuka already talked about this
What are the problems of Nigeria educational system?

Education in Nigeria is besieged by colossal problems such as:

1. Poor funding

2. Poor educational infrastructure including inadequate classrooms, unqualified teachers/lecturers

3. Polluted learning environment.

1. Adopt local policies to promote education for democracy and political skills
After stating the problems of education with the Nigeria government, what are the likely solution?

2. Set up courses, workshops, democracy hubs and other support for political participation

3. Secure funding to sustain them (the 2 above).
The Nigerian education establishment needs to shed its aversion to teaching facts.
For the past century, teacher-training programs have been dominated by a philosophy known as “progressive” or “constructivist” education.
The summary of the aforementioned is that most of the people in government in Nigeria apart from the provision of funds, now mix politics with education but if Nigeria educational sector can introduce politics to students from grassroot, when these sets of students gets into power (government), they will take education as a big priority rather than playing politics with our children through education
The idea is that it’s better for students to “construct” or discover their own knowledge than to be passive receptacles for a “bunch of facts” that will only bore them.
I will be drawing the curtain here.
Thanks for your time and the opportunity given to me.

Ideally, teachers will just impart cognitive skills that students can use to acquire and analyze information for themselves.
