Nigerians have a lot trouble plaguing their weary hearts. In Northern Nigeria, the Boko Haram factor is still a big issue.
And, in the Southern part of the West African nation, some rebel groups have successfully sabotaged the country’s primary source of revenue.
Currently, the economic situation of Nigeria has attained junk status. Price of commodities have skyrocketed to unimaginable heights and are still climbing.
Yet, citizens of the country are worried about South Africa. The common opinion is that there’s “too much freedom” in South Africa. Such that it’s leading the country towards destruction.
That, follows the circulating report in the country claiming that South Africa’s Minister of Higher Education and Training, Blade Nzimande announced plans to have witchcraft included in the SA Universities’ curriculum from 2018.
According to the reports, SA students can now vie for B.Sc In Witchcraft.
The reports quoted Nzimande to have said:
“There is a lot we can learn from witchcraft, like how they fly in that winnowing basket. Imagine if we learn that skill. It will eradicate traffic jams and everyone will just get in their basket and fly. It also means we will not be importing fuel anymore.
I spoke to Gibs (Minister of Home affairs Malusi Gigaba) and he agreed to issue witches from outside South Africa with permanent residence permits. I heard Malawi and Zimbabwe have an impressive collection of witches. We are hoping they will heed the call.”
BuzzSouthAfrica traced the source of the circulating report to a South African satirical domain. From all indications, Nigerians are concerned about the state of affairs in South Africa for the wrong reason. The story is a hoax.
Meanwhile, Nzimande recently gave a progress update on the implementation of the R4.5 billion that the government committed for financial assistance to poor students.
The Minister disclosed that the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has received claims amounting to R373.3 million for 17 580 students.
“Institutions are experiencing difficulties with locating students that are on the historic debt list as some of the students had managed to source funding elsewhere prior to the government’s announcement.
Thus, it is envisaged that a large amount from the historic debt allocation will be made available to support unfunded first-year students,” stated Nzimande.
