Top 5 Countries for your University Education


          As the Nigerian Education sector is still struggling to meet up with its counterparts abroad, also some of us still have problems accessing US and UK visas due to some strict restrictions from their governments. There are some other countries with fairer visa conditions for Nigerian citizens including the sound education system that can be measured alongside other top countries of the world. Below, we have taken the liberty to make a list of those countries and what makes them stand out. Below, they are listed thus:

1.    Germany

Everyone knows that Europe is the world’s capital of contemporary education, and fortunately, their visa policy is somehow favorable to Nigerians despite the bad publicity about the country in the western media. Germany is a great country to study courses like hard science courses, business, and German language. German education system just like the Canadians depends largely on practicality, and also being the headquarters of top companies in the world one can easily secure a place for his/her internship program as most of their courses depend largely on that. But you must note that you must go through a compulsory German language course before proceeding to the main course.

2.    Japan

The Japanese system of education is as beautiful as their architectures but mind you, they take decipline very seriously. if you are interested in studying anything tech-related, Japan should be your destination of choice. The cost of living is very moderate and accessing their chosen school is twice as convenient because their crazy fast trains are always there to take you to your destination. The visa policy is fair for Nigerians requesting for student’s visa, but you have to equip yourself with a little bit Japanese language before you can integrate.

3.    Australia

Australia may be very far from Africa, but if your purpose is academic-related then it is worth it. This country has one of the best universities in the world especially when you seeking to get a degree in business, humanities, and science-related courses. But you should note that Australia is in the southern hemisphere, meaning that you have to make sure you suite yourself properly because of the long freezing winter cold. And visa fee stands at $141. Some of the universities to consider while in Australia are Australian National University (ANU), University of Western Australia (UWA), University of Sydney, University of Queensland Australia (UQ), e.t.c.

4.    Finland

With a population of over 5 million people, This is a country with the most unique education system in the world, a child in Finland is not meant to start school until they 8-9 years of age. The University education here is more pragmatic than theoretical, which is why they spend more time working as interns in different companies in the world. Finnish visa goes for $88 and the cost of living is a bit high. Some universities to consider in this country are the University of Helsinki, Aalto University, and the University of Jyväskylä.

5.    Ukraine

This country has trained more Nigerian medical doctors than a foreign university in the world. With a population of over 42 million people living, they have an education system designed to train students especially in the field of medicine. One of the advantages of schooling in Ukraine is the low moderate cost of living which includes the tuition fee compared to other top countries. Ukrainian visa goes for $52.

Lastly, you have to understand that in as much as traveling abroad for education purposes is a good idea, you don’t have to stress it. There are some decent top universities in Nigeria one can easily enroll in considering you have the financial resources needed for such a project. We will advise our parents to endeavor to go for those private universities with renowned foreign professors working with them because they have the same quality ad those schools abroad. Also you should try country like Canada, it is actually one of the first best destination for those in academic pursuit.
For those who cannot afford such quality education, you have to understand that the best form of education is the self-thought system; go online, find materials related in your niche, study it and get acquainted with its content. Use all the available online materials within your reach that way, you will sure measure up with your counterparts in any part of the world.

BBI Invokes Right to Life as Parents of a Sick Child Cites Religion for Refusing Child Medical Care.


Behind Bars Initiative(BBI) rose to the rescue of a one year and seven months old baby, precious who suffers from hydrocephalus.

Baby Precious, who according to the DG of BBI, Comrade Harrison Gwamnishu, has undergone untold hardship in the hands of her religious fanatic parents.

The parents who claimed to be Jehovah Witnesses were alledged to have locked the less than 2 year old baby at home because of her peculiar health challenge and attempts to rescue the little child proved difficult as parents claimed it is against their religious belief to undergo surgery or blood transfusion.

Comrade Gwamnishu noted on his update on the situation that:

"We are not only going to retrieve her from her Jehovah 's Witness parents, but we will also move her to a specialist hospital for the surgery.
My organization can not do it alone. We need collaboration and support from concerned Nigerians.
HER CONDITION
Her parents lock   her daily indoor. She's imprisoned and she's dying slowly.
She's just 1 year +. "

The little child has been said to have a deep sore behind her head due to BED SORE and lying headback on the floor.

The DG called on government and all interventionist organisation to come to the rescue of this innocent child as the initiative invokes the right to life as enshrined in the nigeria constitution.

 In his statement on his social media page tagged LIFE OR SPIRITUALITY? #SavePrecious he said

"My day was ruined yesterday in Sapele, Delta State by this little 1-year 7-months old baby's predicament in the hands of her Jehovah 's Witness parents who are religious fanatics that always lock her🔒 indoors alone because of her health challenge.
Sapele Olofofo Unugbragada led me to see her. 😭 😭 She's suffering from Hydrocephalus and the parents have vehemently opposed all pleas to carry out surgery on the baby citing religious belief.
No responsible and responsive government will fold its arms and allow any parent or guardian to act ignorantly on religious grounds in a way that would be life-threatening to a citizen, especially their children or wards.
We will use every legal action to rescue the child from them and bring her back to life... Your opinion is also needed as the baby needs urgent medical care.
#LetsSaveThisChild
#EmancipateYourselfFromMentalSlavery"

He also called for the involvement of the Delta State Government,ministry of women affairs and the ministry of justice

Nike Releases New Nigeria's Super Eagles Jersey for 2020


Following the release of the official 2020 jersey of the Nigeria Super Eagles, at the Americas sportswear manufacturer, NIKE's brand event in New York, alongside the new South Korea and USA jerseys, Nigerians have welcomed this new outfit with mixed feelings.

What was tagged a classic by some fans is however only a bit similar to the 2018 world cup jersey in its wavy nature.

Tagged the waviest jersey ever, though  unlike the 2018 World Cup jersey that was greatly accepted and loved, opinions have been  divided this time on whether this new set of jerseys are superb or a mere mockery.



The new jersey, is similar to the new England shirt, in that the Nike logo and federation badge sits proudly at the center on the chest of Nigeria’s new 2020 home shirt, with "Naija" written on the inside neck as well as the back of the socks.

Nike has explained the reason behind the design of both the home and away jerseys on Twitter, through the senior director, Heidi Burgett.

 He said the home jersey is a mix of an “agbada” design and modern football design. At the same time, the away kit is inspired by “onanism” (self-gratification).

The Super Eagles would wear the new jersey all through the 2021 AFCON qualifiers and also the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

According to the Nigeria Football Federation's 1st Vice President, Seyi Akinwunmi, the Nigeria national teams will start to wear the New Jerseys in June but it will be in the shops in July.

He also stated in a radio interview that; they are trying to ensure that it is available in the stores in at least 10 cities in Nigeria”.



Reactions trailed this release as some Nigerians expressed their resentment via social media.


Shehu Achituwo, wrote on Twitter:
“Pls this isn’t cool, just don’t disgrace us. From the best jersey in FIFA world cup to a faded looking second hand Jersey.”

Another user, Emmanuel CO, wrote:

The White Jersey clearly represents what the present government of Nigeria has always had… “NO SENSE…!!!
A Secondary school pupil would have done a better job of designing any of those Jerseys…
And your fido-dido male model didn’t help the “Look” of the Jersey at all…”

For Odemwingie Precious,
“The jerseys are fine but the guy wearing the white/green is why it’s not looking fine. Put the jerseys on someone else, you will see the difference,”.

A fan from Brazil wrote:
 “Nigeria is trending in Brazil right now because we are loving this shirt. Nike, when are you going to do one as great as Nigeria’s one?”

The president of the Authentic Nigeria Football Supporters Club, Abayomi Ogunjimi said:

“This is more of a Nigerian thing, it is beautiful and an improvement of what we use to have, from what I have seen, the fans are happy, and I must appreciate the Nigeria Football Federation and NIKE for giving Nigerian fans something to cherish for a long time.”
other Nigerians has long expressed opinions that the counterfeits would flood the Nigeria Market even before June official sale.
