Reformation forum: Leadership and Unionism

Leadership was the major talk of the day as Mr Sogbanmu kehinde Oladipupo Tajudeen sensitize the youths to their roles in development of the nation at the 2019 conference of Ogun state institutes of technology (OGITECH) Reformation forum.

He made it clear that in his research “Youth” have no generally accepted definition as he made reference to Martin Luther King Junior in the sense that its all starts with having a dream Connection is built on unionism and that is what we call a nation

There is no way we talk about Nigeria without talking about past leaders despites their mistakes. Also, no way you talk about Reformation forum without making mention of Comrade Emmanuel Arogunjo former SRC chairman and Comrade Tosin Ayeni who through their sweat and agitation brought unionism into existence in OGITECH with the aim of restoring what is not in its place in the campus.

Ta lo n se wa? Said kehinde made it clear that it is not about our country, its the youth lacking knowledge about the nation. Youths should make their importance known to our leaders not just carrying weapons and sharp objects in the name of riots

There is a clear difference between been intelligent and been a leader. If you refuse to leave the particular space you ought to exit you will never move forward. You will only keep parabulating in as much as violence will not do any good as a leader

Leaders of tomorrow, what leadership trait do you have? Is today’s dream coming into future?

Reformation forum: Building social cohesion

The 2019 conference organised by Ogun state institute of technology (OGITECH) Reformation forum was a success as Comrade Oladimeji Jonathan enlightened students on roles of youth in nation building in relation to Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola and democracy at Carpenter hall, Igbesa.

Reformation is a forum where youths are encouraged and educated on full facts concerning Aluta which means “struggle “.  He made reference to OGITECH as a reformation where students are been taught to  struggle just as its being said ” Aluta continues ” STRUGGLE CONTINUES.

It is seen that all citizens are to be involved in developing a nation. Thus, encouraging all citizens in building social cohesion, economic prosperity and political stability in a nation in a exclusive and Democratic way

MKO Abiola, the presumed winner of the election was said to be generous and tried to eliminate poverty all his life. He died in detention in 1998 on the day he was due to be released from incarceration under suspicious circumstance shortly after the death of general Abacha. It was stated that he died of natural course


“Till date Nigeria has not recorded any free fair, legible and accountable election such as 1993 election” said Jonathan as he emphasize on June 12 as a day to remember Chief MKO Abiola as well as other democracy martyrs

He said keeping someone does not mean you are generously okay as a leader. Leadership is not funfair or creating names for yourself but creating life that is better than yours for others
As a leader, what are you fighting for?

Help Save Ifeoluwa from complicated cataract

We have all gone to school to be a better person, to build our desired career and/or to produce generation of responsible people – we never planned for any sickness/disease of all sort; not even headache but we just find ourselves facing life challenges. As you are at the verge of solving one, another is getting ready to spring up. Ifeoluwa doesn’t plan/pray for this to happen to her which why we need to help her restore her health.

PHEBE IFEOLUWA is an ND 1 student of Ogun State Institute of Technology (OGITECH), Igbesa, department of Science Laboratory Technician (SLR). She has been diagnosed with complicated cataract and retina detachment on both eyes which is almost leading to blindness.

Despite being place on drugs and eyedrop, the doctor have advised she undergo surgery VITRECTOMY + SILICON/PHACO + IOL.

A sum of 2.5 MILLION NAIRA is needed to help Ifeoluwa undergo these surgery, help her regain her sight so she can go back to school to live the life she had planned for herself.

No donation is too small to help PHEBE IFEOLUWA get proper medication. So far, less than Five hundred Thousand Naira had been realized from family savings and donations (Source: An audio conversation between Ifeoluwa’s sibling and former SRC Chairman, OGITECH – Arogunjo Emmanuel (Airma))

Student call for SUG intervention concerning black out in students hostel area.

A business Admin student by name,
Comr. Hon. Morakinyo kayode Olasunkanmi PKA (Mko,Ayinla).
Is calling on the attention of the Student Union Government (SUG), OGITECH Chapter concerning the recent blackout experienced in Igbesa students hostel area.

He wrote in an open letter;
“I hereby seek the intervenation of the SUG to the ongoing Scarcity of electricity power within Hostel around China, Obanla close to 3weeks students within that Area are on blackout Due to defaulted Transformer as presummed,
There is a well-known pattern of actions related to electricity supply problems and resulting student unrest in public institutions and it is this:
• Lack of electricity supply provokes serious disruption of activities on hostels, including reading and research. Students become angry.
the CDC’s and CDA’s are yet to notify students reasons for black out and resolution to it within the Area and many students mostly freshers have paid for the Electricity they are yet to consumed Advance payment, i urge the SUG to Intervene with the LandLord Asociations,CDA’s and CDC’s of Obanla,China and other affected Area’s, students welfarism within Campus and off Campus Hostels should be paramount. • The absence of electricity leads to lack of water in hostels, causing health and hygiene risks. Tension mounts.
• The authorities are unable to find proactive solutions to these problems.
• There are spontaneous protests and disruption of activities in the administrative wing of the institution.
• One consequence is ‘illiterate.
School is yet to build Hostels on Campus…

Benefits of EED (Entrepreneurship Education) after school.

While the society all around is developing with technology and innovations. OGITECH have adapted to modernization, and have started making students work in groups to solve problems, learn Cisco and integrate science with arts. But it is noticed even then, students that are graduating lack the advanced skills and innovative thinking to work through the modern day challenges in the workplace. Thus, entrepreneurship, the capacity to not only start companies, but also to think creatively and ambitiously, is very important to be included in school curriculum.

Entrepreneurship education aids students from all socioeconomic backgrounds to think outside the box and nurture unconventional talents and skills. It creates opportunities, ensures social justice, instills confidence and stimulates the economy. Entrepreneurship education is a lifelong learning process, starting as early as elementary school and progressing through all levels of education, including adult education.

Introducing young kids to entrepreneurship develops their initiative and helps them to be more creative and self-confident in whatever they undertake and to act in a socially responsible way. There are many ways entrepreneurship lessons can be integrated in the school curriculum.

Learning a Business

Students can practice writing, interview questions and conduct interviews with entrepreneurs. The information can then be compiled into a directory of the types of goods and services, locations, and hours of the businesses. Students can then discuss the location, advertisement and the products involved in the business.

Language arts

Students can be challenged to come up with business ideas or products, that they think others would be interested to buy. Students can then debate on the potential audience for the product and how they can make modifications to it, which will be more alluring to their audience. Students can also deliberate on with what and whom this product will be competing with.

Thinking skills

Teach students to think on, what’s positive or strong about their work and let them ponder on their weaknesses to find the changes needed to make their product more interesting. Let students to understand, passion and satisfaction to come up with their own original ideas to persevere in the project with what limited resources they have.

Imagining

Creativity dwells within imagination. Pass around common objects to students and make them imagine that object in a different outlook, it will help students to see the same object through a different perspective. It will make students to see possibilities in a common object in a new way.

Research skills

Have students to look through the yellow pages to spot businesses and interesting names, and then categorise these results in superlative forms of adjectives, foreign words, what the business produce or sells, geographic locations and their functions.

Teaching entrepreneurship skills through school is a process, and it is highly recommended that students be left free to find their calling through it. Teachers should also be provided guidelines to manage students and help them to foster a pleasant environment for students to grow.

The 5 most incredible things you must not miss during the Association’ week by; Deji.

Just like we always have a unique atmosphere when it is Christmas period. In my school It is that period when we see the contest of the bold and courageous, that period that some students sees as unofficial holiday week, that period we get to see posters around campus and one thing that amazed me most is that it is during this period we see those we suppose are arrogant and proud of nothing walking up to us to seek our support for their campus political ambitions or for that of their love ones.

With my level of experience on this campus, I have deemed fit to put my pen and abstract together for work in order to enlighten my fellow students especially those who are new on campus (ND 1).

I love to share majority of my experience but it will become a long story, that should be a story for another day. On this campus, I have witnessed association weeks which I must confess are usually fun and educative. Wow! It will be a big and different story this year since our dear and most anticipated SUG is now alive to give us a different taste of the experience.

I have listed 5 activities students must ensure they participate in rather than see the associations week as holiday in disguise.

(1)The Cultural Day:
when i hear the world “culture” the first thing that comes to my mind is “ to make people see the different in my own culture and therefore should adopt it”. I don’t think any student would want to miss this facet of the “week”. It allows every students to come under one umbrella which is coordinated just by the attires they present.

(2)Old school day:
I must tell you that this segment is usually more comical. I remember many students coming to school in a kind of funny attire that does really remind you of how our fathers dressed before the world became a place of stepping out “half naked”.

(3)Seminars:
This is really a segment I want must students to anticipate. Of course it is the educative segment of the week. In the past many associations have not adopted this style but with the new SUG on campus I bet the forth coming week will never go without educating us.

(4)Manifesto:
Of course the session is already at it peak and every departmental representatives are to conduct elections for their successors. During the week “manifesto” is staged for aspirants to address the students and most importantly to list their objectives. I remember going to see manifestos and hear aspirants speaking terrible English (lol). Yes, it is mostly caused by the fear created by the crowd in that multi purpose hall. Trust my experience, it is not so hard to face the crowd in that hall. Just make sure to not focus on them.

(5)Elections:
This is an act of the electoral body constituted by the students representatives to bring in new hands to make sure the rights of the students are been respected. Trust me, if you miss any electoral process in OGITECH you have just supported bad leadership. You should not even miss this. With my experience I can conclude that most aspirants loss elections because their supporters stay back just to hear the announcement of results. This act should change among students in order to not only have good campus leaders but to also have a better Nigeria.

By choosing Ogun State Institute of Technology, you will glean a kind of knowledge that adequately prepare you for a wide-range of roles within the spectrum of multi-national companies and IT industry with the help of added IT industry internet giant hub Cisco Systems Programmes.

REASON’S WHY YOU MUST MEET UP WITH 75% ATTENDANCE IN CLASS.

It is absolutely vital that you attend class regularly. Missing a class should be a rare occurrence; something that happens at most once or twice a semester. If you miss class more than this, it will interfere with your learning and have a negative affect your performance and your grade.

A prerequisite to success in any endeavor is “showing up”, and classes are no exception. If you’re not showing up to class, you’re forfeiting every opportunity provided to you in the classroom.

Benefits
Going to class does far more than simply giving you credit for attendance. Class attendance facilitates learning in a variety of ways, and here are just a few:
Lectures and classes supplement reading assignments. Class gives you another perspective on the material besides just the textbook. Even if you think you already understand the material well, classes always adds something new. The lecturer may go over examples or applications you haven’t seen, concepts in class may be presented in a different way than in the text, and student questions and discussion may elaborate on the material or provide new insights.

lecturers often use questions or class discussion to enhance critical thinking skills. Attending class can be an opportunity for you to engage the material with the guidance of the professor and the help of your classmates. A lecturer may pose a question or lead a discussion in class that directs you to make connections between concepts and helps you to think about the material in new ways.

If you pay attention in class, you may be surprised by how much you can cut your study time later on. No textbook can explain something to you like another person can. Even if lecturer seem as though they are just going through the material in the book, there will always be added clarification and insights that you can discover in class. Time in class is one to two hours during which you are actively thinking about the material and practicing it.

Your lecturer will emphasize the important concepts, giving you a better idea of what is important and what you should focus on. The lecturer is an expert on the material, and they design their lectures to organize the main ideas and extract the important concepts. Attending class and taking good notes can help you to put the ideas together and focus on what is important.

Some lecturers are not very textbook oriented. Their lectures may be very different from the way the textbook presents the material, and class may be used to convey the lecturer’s own viewpoints and perspectives. In a class like this, test questions will more than likely be based on lecture notes rather than the text, so attending class and taking good notes will be one of your best preparations for exams.

Classes give you more interaction with the lecturer and other students in the class. Attending and participating in class shows the lecturer that you are a serious student who is taking responsibility for your education and making an effort to learn. This increases your interaction with faculty members, and raises the likelihood of finding mentors and roll models who can help guide you in your academic, career, and personal development. In addition, class time is a chance to meet and interact with other students in your class. This can help you to form study groups or meet other students in your major.

Taking your own notes during a class is more useful than getting a copy of someone else’s notes (even the instructor’s). In a recent study, only 8% of students reported that getting class notes from a missed class is as useful as attending class. Additionally, this 8% who thought borrowed notes were as good as going to class had significantly lower reported grade point averages than those who valued class attendance more. The act of attending class and writing down your own notes will help you to learn the material and solidify your understanding in a way that is much more effective than when you miss class and read someone else’s notes.

Your Responsibilities
Occasionally, you may have to miss a class due to illness or an important obligation. However, this should be a very rare occurrence. You should not miss class just because you don’t want to go or there is something else you would rather do. Realize that going to class is the default expectation — it is not a decision that needs to be made. In addition:

You should never miss one class in order to do homework or study for another class.

Some students mistakenly think this is prioritizing; in reality it is nothing more than poor time management. Doing work for one class should not be done at the expense of another course. This will only hurt your overall academic career and not benefit you in any way.

If you do miss class, get the notes from a classmate rather than ask your lecturer for a copy of theirs. lecturer are busy, and often don’t have time to do extra work each time a student misses a class. It is your responsibility to attend class, and your responsibility to get caught up on the rare occasions you are absent.

There is a strong correlation between the number of absences a student has and their final course grade. Skipping class can be a fast track to poor performance, increased stress and anxiety, a lower GPA, and even dropping out of school. It is something you should avoid at all costs.
