The students succeeded in the competition from the state level to the zonal and the national level, where they won gold, silver and bronze medals.

Buhari Speaks

Muhammadu Buhari has said his regime has discovered that criminals have infiltrated the mining industry in the country

Buhari said this on Tuesday while declaring open the 56th annual international conference and exhibition of the Nigerian Mining and Geosciences Society held at the International Conference Centre, University of ibadan. The theme of the conference was: 'Responsible exploration and exploitation of mineral resources in a secured environment

His address was read by the Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Dr Uchechukwu Ogah.

The President said since most mining activities were taking place in remote places, it was easy for criminals to infiltrate the mining industry.


Three Injured As Muslims And Christians Clash In Kwara

At least three people sustained varying degrees of injury during a clash between Muslims and Christians on Wednesday in Ilorin, Kwara state after the state government reopened 10 schools shut last month over the use of hijab by Muslim female students.

The government had in February ordered the temporary closure of the schools pending the resolution of the controversy in the schools.

Muslim leaders had insisted that students should be allowed to use hijab but their Christian counterparts said such negates the heritage of the missionaries, who built the schools.

However, after several peace meetings, the state government approved the use of hijab in all public schools in the state.

But the decision did not go down well with the Christian leaders who kicked against it openly, insisting that they will not allow such in their mission schools.
