UniJos VC Seat: NUC Interference, Conspiracy Theories and What's Next? Joey Off-Air Podcast

In accordance with the provisions of section 4 of the Universities (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Amendment) Act 2003 (https://nlipw.com/university-jos-act/), the Governing Council of the University of Jos shortlisted eighteen professors who applied for the position. Unfortunately, the Pro-Chancellor, Prince Tony Momoh died before the process could end. Following the alleged opposition by some members of the governing council as to the election process, the National Universities Commission (NUC) halted the process. The NUC's decision (https://www.premiumtimesng.com/regional/north-central/456417-unijos-students-staff-protest-nuc-interference-in-vc-selection-process.html) was followed by protests by staff and students on the University's campus. The NUC interference paved way for numerous conspiracy theories. In this episode, we continued the conversation on the Post-Professor Maimako's administration with a look at these conspiracy theories, the narratives that followed the protest amongst others. — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/joey-off-air-podcast/message

In commemoration of this year’s International Day for Wildlife themed “Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet”, the spotlight is on the central role of forests, forest species, and ecosystems services in sustaining the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people globally, and particularly of indigenous and local communities with historic ties to forested and forest-adjacent areas. This aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 1, 12, 13, and 15, and their wide-ranging commitments to alleviating poverty, ensuring sustainable use of resources, and conserving life land.
In this episode, Joey hosted Dominic Langs to discuss how the Plateau State Tourism Cooperation intends to conserve wildlife on the Plateau.
