Anchor University Fees Cheaper than Other Institutions-Vice Chancellor

Contrary to the widespread criticisms against faith-based educational institutions, of charging exorbitant fees not affordable by the members of the church, who might have contributed in one way or the other towards the funding of such schools, the Vice Chancellor of the Anchor University –a tertiary institution sponsored by the  Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Professor  Joseph Olasehinde Afolayan, has said that the recently approved University will be the among the cheapest private universities in the federation.

Afolayan, who is the pioneer VC of the institute, explained how they thoroughly surveyed, compared and contrasted fees of other universities in the country, before arriving at their own fees, adding that the immediate goal of the institution is not to make money. He said although they are targeting money, but the institution is not for charity, because a lot of investment has gone into it, thus they must make turnover.

Real Reasons You Should Eat Your Fruits and Veggies with the Skin- Nutritionist

It is paradoxical to always embark on peeling of fruit or vegetable skin on health grounds, while experts have condemned the act, saying the skin of most vegetables possess the healthiest part of the produce.

Aside the herculean task of peeling, which consume one’s precious time, it was also found that peeling of fruits leaves the plant based food with lesser than half of the phyto substances, after the most-valued healthy components must have been lost through peeling.

In a Daily Mail Online chat with a certified nutritionist and registered dietician Mary Jane Detroyer, based in New York, about why we shouldn't be peeling our vegetables and all the hidden benefits found in the skins, she disclosed that there are several reasons to be leaving the skin on, and the main reason is what you deprive your body of when you peel it off.

Detroyer who submitted that the  rind of produce like potatoes, carrots, and cucumbers all have plenty of health benefits, noted that the  skin has a lot of fiber and it's insoluble fiber, especially when the skin is colourful.

Citing cucumbers as typical example of fruits that must be eaten with the skin, she said the dark green skin contains the majority of its antioxidants, as well as most of its vitamin K.
Does this action portray you?
And the skin of a potato packs more nutrients - iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C - ounce-for-ounce than the rest of the potato.

The registered nutritionist further named potato as a good veggie but must be consumed with the skin for ultimate benefits to be derived. “People, when they make mashed potatoes, often feel they have to peel the skin off. But they can just boil the skin and mix it right into the rest of the mashed potatoes”, Detroyer said.

Explaining that the skin of vegetables contains antioxidants that fight against free radicals, she described free radicals as groups of atoms that can cause damage to the body when produced in excess, such as heart disease.

While stating that Vitamins C and E are found in many vegetables, she advised everyone to endeavour to cultivate the habit of eating their fruits- pawpaw, mango, guava, carrot, watermelon; beetroot, and others with the rind, to enhance maximum protection of the body against the destructive effects of free radicals by neutralizing them.

Are you convinced beyond any doubt on this now?

Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike's wife and Mummy Esther Kumuyi

 Speaking on the significance of women in the society, the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, who declared March 8, a work free day in Ekiti, said women should be held in high esteem by men.
His words: “I want to appreciate you all very specially for your strategic position in history for a world without women will be a world of crisis.
“Some of us don’t have the right attitude towards women because of the way we treat our wives; there must be a change of attitude. Let us expose our women so they can become ministers and even presidents, our case cannot be different".

I think that is enough enlightenment for our men, to always revere the position of women in the society.True?

Lagos Commences100 Days Free Healthcare Services, Increases BRT Fares Today

Although there are indications that it’s not the best of time for Lagos residents as they are grappling with some new economic policies of the government, but there is still a reason to rejoice, as the State government flagged off its free 100 Days Medical Mission today, March 1 2017, in all the 20 Local Governments and 57 Local Council Development Areas, LCDAs.

Aimed at achieving Universal Health Coverage for its citizens, the initiative was borne out of the burden to reduce infant morbidity and maternal mortality in the state.
Disclosing the plan to journalists during the week, State Commissioner for Health, Dr Jide Idris, said that the free healthcare, under the Lagos State Medical Mission, would commence on March 1 and end on June 8, 2017.
Commuters stranded at a bus-stop, groan under the new BRT regime

In the same vein, the earlier announced increment in the fares of  Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) along with the franchised LAG Buses took effect from today, as commuters groaned under the new policy.
 Under the new price regime, commuting in the BRT (blue bus), operated by Primero Transport Services, from Ikorodu to Mile 12 will attract N100, up from N75. Similarly, the new fare from Ikorodu to Fadeyi will be N200 from N120, while that of Ikorodu to CMS goes up from N195 to N300.

Justifying the increases, the Managing Director of the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Engineer Abiodun Dabiri, said that the prevailing economic crunch has shut up the transporters’ cost of operations by 110 per cent and inevitably necessitated the increment.

On the free healthcare services, Idris said the programme over the years had helped to complement health service delivery in the state, aside helping government to take healthcare to the grassroots and undeserved areas of Lagos State, by addressing pressing health issues of the rural communities in the state.
“These Missions provide primary care services that take healthcare to the doorsteps of its citizens at no cost to the people. Although Medical Missions are short-term interventions, it is geared towards the strategic development plan of ensuring Universal Health Coverage.
“These medical missions are significant because it will enable this administration to provide healthcare services to all who come irrespective of their age, gender, socio-economic status and affiliations,” he said.

Though the development looks more of  ‘Trade by Bata’ to me, where you collect more from commuters to give them free healthcare services, as in ‘fowo Abu shabu la lejo’ stuff. My opinion though.
What’s you take?
