Ranieri: It Is All New For Leicester

Featured Image

Claudio Ranieri is expecting to face a tough test against Burnley on Saturday, as they’re trying to adapt to the UCL schedule.

Leicester beat Club Brugge 3-0 to get their first win in the champions league, but they’ve not had a good start to the EPL.

Ranieri’s side lost 4-1 at Liverpool last time out and the Italian accepted it will be a different challenge this season for his team to play regularly in midweek and at weekends.

“For us everything is new,” Ranieri said at his pre-match news conference on Friday. “I want to see how my players respond.

“They told me they are okay and they must show this on the pitch. It’s a tough match [against Burnley]. We know very well that it will be a battle.

“Burnley are very strong and very solid. They play 4-4-2 and are narrow. I’m very impressed with them this season.”

Mr President, Change Does Not Begin With An Empty Slogan

Mr President, Change Does Not Begin With An Empty Slogan, By Gimba Kakanda

Last Thursday, the Federal Government, obviously terrified by the burden of expectations on it, launched what is without doubt an exercise in propaganda. It is a social orientation campaign named “Change Begins With Me”. Introducing the campaign, the president said, “Our citizens must realise that the change they want to see begins with them.” And then, “Before you ask ‘where is the change they promised us’, you must first ask how far have I changed my ways, (sic) ‘what have I done to be part of the change for the greater good of society’.”

This piece was written by Gimba Kakanda. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

This is an audacious attempt to alter the definition of “Change” the APC proposed when it approached us in selling its beautiful ideas for Nigeria. The governing party’s idea of change has been widely archived, and it’s just impossible to convince the people that the change they promised isn’t creating three million jobs yearly, providing free meals for public primary school public, offering N5,000 stipends to unemployed youths, adopting social welfare programmes to cater for the poor, free maternal and children healthcare services, amongst similar visions, as laudable as they were popular.

This is why the definition recently provided by the president is a contradiction of what the APC told us, that it would lead the way to our redemption. The Change promised Nigerians was framed as institutional and systemic, not this grand campaign for exceptional individualism. The problem, as strongly believe, is not the person, not the Nigerian. It’s the institutions, stupid!, to creatively quote an exceptional American who also came to power chanting Change. Institutions aren’t made by people, they are made by rules, fair rules impartially administered, and hard to bend. That is the Change we were promised, it was the Change we expected and voted for, it is the Change that is demanded.

Have you ever paused to ponder why Nigerians beat traffic lights in Abuja but obey traffic rules in London? It’s because the UK institutions are strong. So, the change we anticipate must begin with institutions changing people. Telling some people that change begins with them is like telling a robber to stop stealing. No, you have to build a strong Police to change him, and strong social services so that petty theft for survival is diminished. Citizens are often only as good and as incorruptible as the country wants them to be, through its institutions.

An expatriate friend, an Australian, beats traffic lights in Abuja and he actually once described it as fun. He’ll never try it in his country. Why? It’s not patriotism. Words like “change begins with me” will never stop people from disobeying traffic rules. To achieve this, you need surveillance cameras and strong penalising institutions. Wait, why do you think Americans are afraid of evading tax? It’s the horror of having to deal with IRS. It’s not patriotism. Who’s afraid of FIRS? Definitely not the Nigerian big man who’s sure of his ability to make phone calls and get any case against him dropped! So, change should begin with the president addressing institutional lapses like those employment scams at CBN and FIRS, and apologising to the nation for condoning such nepotism.

Truth is, this “Change Begins With Me” campaign may only further give the President more excuses to skip electoral promises. He and his handlers will claim they failed to deliver as promised because the citizens didn’t change. Our president may go down in history as just another politician if he does not stick to the dream he promised which got him elected, with honest apologies or explanations where necessary. He’s to lead and inspire a generation by giving them a functional nation to strive to change their realities. Change begins with having stable power supply, equipped and upgraded hospitals, developed road infrastructure, rehabilitated schools, countered nepotism, defeated crony capitalism, etc.

Yes, you don’t need a witchdoctor to understand that the change promised by the APC means overturning our social conditions. Our people are hungry, forex is unstable, businesses are collapsing, and instead of changing their conditions, the government is shamelessly telling them that change begins with them. What the hungry citizens need isn’t an empty slogan, but a favourable socio-economy to stay alive and thrive in. To say #ChangeBeginsWithMe when inflation is on autopilot is an understating of the nation’s reality; a state-authorised insult. To deploy a slogan as facile and silly as #ChangeBeginsWIthMe in 2016 is an insult on the intelligence of even the dullest member of the Nigerian electorate. Change means an improvement in the quality and responsiveness of our institutions, and we will never let the President CHANGE the promised CHANGE!

If Nigerians had not changed, they wouldn’t have volunteered to campaign for Candidate Muhammadu Buhari who, addressing delegates at his party’s National Convention before the elections, said, “I can’t give you a pocketful of dollars or naira to purchase your support.” What he offered in place of dollars was a beautiful dream. In that dream, the people saw a Nigeria where they don’t need a “connection” anymore to secure a job. But that has not happened under his watch. This is why I suggested #ChangeAlongWithMe as a more sensible slogan elsewhere, because the president was elected to pave the way for the change by, for instance, installing functional streetlamps and establishing strong penalising institutions for citizens to obey traffic rules, and by stopping recruitment scams at our federal agencies for the citizens to get the sense and essence of a Nigeria without nepotism. Psychologists call these conditioning!

But the usual governmental praise-singers, in their serial bid to endorse the campaign, say its critics are ignorant, revealing their amusing misconception of civics. Some have written that Nigerians have a sense of entitlement. They miss, of course, embarrassingly, that Nigerians are not requesting effective institutional change from the president. We are demanding it as he promised. It’s our right, paid for in blood and votes, it is not a privilege to which entitlement and too much of entitlement can be attached.

Nigerians are waiting for the president to have them conditioned into what he wants them to be, possible only through his policies and actions. He has access to the public treasury and administrative machinery to shape the destiny of this nation. That the government is resorting to psychological propaganda to hoodwink Nigerians into embracing a contradiction of its promises and capabilities, is dispiriting. Change begins with action, and with the president not abdicating his responsibility to champion it. May God save us from us.

Canelo: GGG Fight Will Definitely Happen

Featured Image

Saul Canelo Alvarez is insisting he will still face Gennady GGG Golovkin and won’t have a problem getting to 160lbs.

Alvarez will fight WBO super-welterweight champion, Liam Smith this weekend after dispatching Amir Khan in six rounds.

The Mexican gave up his middleweight title ahead of his fight with Khan in May which led to accusations of him ducking ‘GGG’.

However, Canelo (47-1-1-KO33), whose sole defeat was to Floyd Mayweather via a points decision, is adamant he wants the fight and says the undefeated knockout specialist should be the one to be worried.

“Any day, any time. When the negotiations are done and the fight is done, I will be ready. They need to worry about it, not me,” said Canelo.

“I’m not worried at all about going to 160lb. I’m a strong fighter, I’m a fighter who can adapt to my surroundings.

“I can’t tell you now what I will be like at 160 as I don’t know yet. We will see in a couple more fights in how I feel and look. We will see what comes.

“I will say this one more time. They need to worry. They need to make something happen.”

Golovkin stopped Kell Brook in five rounds last weekend to claim his 36th straight win and 33rd by stoppage.

“I have always known what he has and what he does not. He had an opponent who moved a little and we saw what we saw,” added Canelo.

“I have never worried about him or others. I just want to create my own history. I have been fighting the best, I am just 26 and have fought in the biggest arenas.

“I have no regrets, I want that fight and it will happen.”

The ambush by the five-man gang, belonging to wanted notorious criminal, Terwase Akwaza, also known as Ghana, met a huge brick wall as an irate mob intervened and overpowered them.

Although, they succeeded in killing 10 persons during the invasion, they were subdued as two of the bandits were  lynched to death by the intrepid villagers.

Speaking on the incident, in a statement, Spokesman of the Benue Police command, Moses Joel Yamu, said that the five gang man on Wednesday went to rob at Senga village, an interior part of Katsina Ala LGA where an irate mob lynched two among them.

The police spokesman added that the robbers on reprisal, however, could not gain access to Senga because youths of the village had mobilized to protect their area.

They were held at Kenvenger village – a close by village – where they shot and killed on the spot 10 persons.

“One later identified as “Chemical” and a lady harbouring them were killed, while the other three suspects escaped to Gbise village and mobilised for reprisal,” the spokesman said.

“Among those killed by the suspected robbers,” according to police spokesman include “one Terseer Akaya, a driver from Katsina-Ala who went to convey farm produce, also a woman with two of her children; eight months old baby and eight years old child.”

Yamu said that five other persons who were injured were rushed to the NKST hospital at Kera, Katsina-Ala LGA, where they are being treated.

According to Yamu, the state command had since deployed officers to the area to prevent further breach of peace.

Hart At Torino To Get Better

Featured Image

Joe Hart has revealed his excitement at having to goalkeep at Torino, stating he is looking to improve.

The England international completed his loan move to the Serie A club from Manchester City and is the first English goalkeeper in Italy in 86 years.

“There are differences with the Premier League and I’m working hard to integrate with the squad,” he said at his introductory press conference.

“I was happy at Manchester City for 10 years and now I’m here. It’s normal for a player to change and I’m grateful to Torino for giving me the experience to test myself in Serie A.

“Since I was young I have always watched matches from the Italian league. I already knew the history of Torino and of the Superga tragedy.

“I know Juventus are here too, but I’m glad to be Granata – Toro’s history is unique.

“I’m learning Italian. I’m very happy to be here and I’m learning the words that a goalkeeper needs. I have a good Italian teacher who helps me to learn Italian and communicate with everyone. I will be able to do it.

“City gave me so many opportunities, but I’m at Torino to improve. City gave me the opportunity to choose and I did that, now I will work to do well in Serie A.

“I’m glad to be here and I don’t know why there have been so few English goalkeepers in Italy. I’m here and it’s a great opportunity for my career.

“There are big differences with England – the food is good, it’s healthier and I’m glad to be here.”

Despite his debut error, Hart revealed he is already developing a bond with head coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.

He added: “My mistake? They can happen. The coach has received me well and I’m working hard to improve day-by-day. I’m still only 29 and I have an open mind to learn more.

“I will give everything until the end of the season. I’m training and starting to understand what Mihajlovic wants. My mentality and Toro’s are the same.”

John Stones – “Sergio Aguero Deserves PFA Awards”

Featured Image

Manchester City defender John Stones has heaped high praise on teammate Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine striker has scored 9 goals in 5 games this season, and has 105 goals and 26 assists in 153 league appearances since he joined the club.

Aguero however has never been named in the team of the season, and Stones believes he is overdue for that honor.

“He’s one of those players who comes in, gets on with his work and with his own life. The awards will come to him. There are a lot of top players out there and he’s definitely up there,” Stones said.

“If he keeps playing like he is then I’m sure there’s no reason why he can’t be nominated and going for these.”

“His goalscoring record is a joke. It’s not just that – his link-up play, movement, these things go unrecognised because of his goalscoring but he’s an all-round player for his size,” Stones said.

“He can head a ball. He’s the full package and it’s great for me to play alongside him day in, day out.”

Stones also revealed that he was excited at the prospect of facing Barcelona. Both sides meet again next month in the UEFA Champions League.

“You’ve got to be on your toes and I think the players bring the best out of you,” Stones added.

“You have to raise your game and also try and compete with the best. That’s why you come and play on these big stages to play against the best and try to prove yourself.”

Pastor Commits Suicide After Mistakenly Sharing Nude Photos In Church Whatsapp Group

A Limpopo Pastor of Christ Embassy has committed suicide after he allegedly shared photos of his manhood to his church Whatsapp Group.

According to a local media, Livemonitor, the ‘Minister of God’, who is simply identified as Letsego, a married man, thought he was sending the picture to his lover, who happens to be a member of the same church.

The nude photo, which was mistakenly sent, it was learnt, carried the caption: “Wife is away, its all yours tonight”.

He was immediately introduced to reality after hitting the send button as his congregants expressed dismay and outrage over the misadventure.

Upon realisation, the pastor was said to have immediately exited the group and stopped answering his calls.

24 hours later, Letsego was found dead, hanging in his rented church apartment.

Rattled by the unfolding scenario, one of the pastor’s congregants, who pleaded anonymity said:

“Pastor’s antics have always been a cause for concern, he was always seen in the company of one of the deacons named Miriam and we suspected there was more to their friendship than meets the eye.

“Quizzed by his wife and congregants, he would shrug off the allegations and say as a Pastor he was a father to everyone and Miriam was his favourite Daughter.”

According to Live Monitor, efforts made to get a comment from Christ Embassy Officials remains fruitless.

Woman Arrested For Dumping 1 Day Old Baby By Roadside

Featured Image

The Commissioner of Police for Lagos State, Mr Fatai Owoseni said that police have arrested a 31-year-old woman who abandoned her newborn baby on the street.

The woman named Ifunanya Eme was reportedly arrested on Tuesday. Police say the woman gave birth to the baby girl at No. 1, Prince Bello Street, Ajangbadi in Ojo Local Development Area council of the state.

According to Eme, she was married with three kids before but was separated from her husband then got pregnant for another man who denied responsibility for the baby. She couldn’t take care of the baby so she wrapped her up and left her in front of her house hoping someone else would see her and take her.

“After I gave birth to the baby in the public toilet of our house, I wrapped the baby with a bag and dropped her outside our gate and went inside to sleep. I never thought of checking my baby again. I just wanted someone to find her nothing more” she said.

A passerby heard the cries coming from the baby and alerted the police, who took the baby to a nearby hospital for check up before coming back to begin their investigation into who the baby’s mother was.  Their first clue came when some neighbors alerted an Officer, Alim Musa, a Chief Superintendent of Police, about the pool of blood trickling out of a fellow neighbor’s house. When the police got to the residence, the suspect was seen recuperating, while the baby was nowhere to be seen.

The police questioned her once they confirmed from the neighbors that she was indeed pregnant. Ms Eme, who works as a sales person in a tricycles shop, admitted to the offence.

Matip Ready To Battle Costa

Featured Image

Joel Matip, Liverpool derender has stated he is ready to face Chelsea striker Diego Costa in their Friday encounter.

The Spanish striker has a reputation for being physical on the field and is known for provoking his opponents.

Far from being deterred, Matip is relishing the chance to battle it out with the Chelsea centre-forward.

“If an opponent tries to talk to me during the game, really, I don’t give a f***,” Matip told The Telegraph.

“There are players who try to say things in a game, but I never care about this. They can say what they want. I don’t think anyone is like Costa. You can play against players who like to make you uncomfortable, but not too many with his size or as famous as him.

“It is always a fight against these big teams and you have to take on the battle. You have to go in there and fight, there is nothing else. As a defender that is something you like, to go out there and win the ball.

“But I don’t prepare only for Costa. I prepare for the whole team. Maybe he will be my direct adversary and I will study to see how he moves. I have seen a lot of his games. But you can never prepare for one player out of 11.

“Against a more typical No.9 at least you know these players and how they play, and where they will be on the pitch. You know what is going to happen, even if it is still difficult to play against.”

“I have to deafen my ears to that Christian lady,” she said. “She is looking at me as part of the cultural tapestry. I am living and breathing. That person is not considering what I had for breakfast, how that is sitting in my stomach, and why I didn’t do well with that audition.”

“It will inspire many young people to believe in their ability and be the best in all areas of their endeavours. With my kind of comedy, hopefully, I will set a new Guinness World Record.”

In 2013, David-Scott – the current holder of the title – performed the longest individual stand-up comedy show of all times, setting a record of 40 hours, 8 minutes.

To surpass David-Scott’s record, Gandoki would attempt 48 hours stand-up comedy from September 29 to October 1 in Lagos.

More residents of Kwoi in Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State have fled, after the earth tremors that ripped through the community on Sunday.

It was learnt that a number of ‘concerned’ residents relocated their love ones to safer grounds as they could no longer bear the brunt of a re-occurrence of another tremor – as it continued on Tuesday.

The mass departure took an intensified dimension on Thursday as several vehicles moved non-indigenes and their properties away.

The reason for the exodus may not be unconnected to a smaller tremor, which was registered 24 hours after Tuesday’s episode, as it heightened fears among locals.

A resident, Dominic Mba, who spoke on the incident, said:

“I have just returned from Jos to move our remaining properties and go back with my family members, because we don’t know what might happen again in this town.”

Also, a school teacher, James Jinjiri:

“There was a small tremor on Tuesday night. The Igbo traders and other non-indigenes made up their minds to leave. Majority moved out between Sunday afternoon and Tuesday. On Monday, there were more vibrations. Those that stayed back were uncertain. Now, they are all leaving. I can’t recall anyone I know who is still around, except the non-Ham (Kwoi dialect)-speaking women married to our men.”

Shops were shut down yesterday as traders moved out their wares to safer grounds.

A senator representing PDP, Kaduna Southern Senatorial Zone, Danjuma Laah, while on visit to the affected area called for calm amidst tension.

He said, “I have come here to see for myself this frightening development. It is unimaginable that such a thing happened in southern Kaduna. In the history of our people, not even our grandparents can recall an occurrence like this. But, as people of faith, let us take it as the wonders of the Almighty.

“It is unfortunate that some people lost their homes and some houses were badly cracked. It is, however, a relief that no loss of life or serious injuries were recorded. Please, go about your livelihood calmly and let’s trust God that this is the end of it all.”

He assured that geo-physicists would visit the area to carry out an investigation and determine the possibilities of fresh occurrence.

Antonio Conte : Oscar Very Important To Chelsea 

Featured Image

​Antonio Conte believes Oscar is relishing his role as an ‘important’ player for Chelsea once again after it seemed his future might lie away from the club.

That was after the 25-year-old struggled for form under Jose Mourinho then lost his place under Guus Hiddink last season.
After Conte pushed Oscar back into central midfield – rather than behind the striker or on the wing – the player’s form has improved again.
The Brazil international was linked with a move from Stamford Bridge over the summer four years after he moved to London from Internacional.

The Italian, whose side face Liverpool in Friday Night Football, said: “Oscar is a good player with good technique and can do both phases, offensive and defensive. I asked him to stay always focused and to stay in the game.

“He is an important player for Chelsea, a good passer, good technique, and he scores goals. There was speculation but I am very glad for him that he stayed because he is in my plans.”

​Man City head coach Pep Guardiola is planning moves for three Borussia Monchengladbach players when the transfer window reopens for business, reports in Bild.

According to the German sports daily, the trio are understood to be Mahmoud Dahoud, Thorgan Hazard and Andreas Christensen.

Thorgan Hazard

Guardiola watched his side demolish Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Thursday night, but German newspaper Bild claims the ex-Bayern Munich boss has his eye on a number of their finest talents.
Guardiola was heard talking to Gladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl after the game, and the Spaniard reportedly said he’s keen on landing Mahmoud Dahoud, Thorgan Hazard and Andreas Christensen.

Dahoud is regarded as one of the top young midfielders in Germany and came to prominence last season alongside now-Arsenal star Granit Xhaka as he racked up 41 appearances in all competitions.

Andreas Christensen

Dahoud has been scouted a number of times by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and is also attracting interest from Juventus.

Meanwhile, Hazard is the younger brother of Chelsea star Hazard and has transformed into a top playmaker since leaving Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old has racked up 14 goals and 17 assists in 79 games 

Andreas Christensen is half-way through a two-year loan from Chelsea, who are determined to bring him back to London next summer.

​Zlatan Ibrahimovic wanted to end his career at Napoli – before deciding to join Man Utd, according to his agent Mino Raiola. 

“Was Zlatan Ibrahimovic approached by Napoli this summer? The presidents who talk to me, they know what is said remains between us. We chose United recently, it was our goal, Ibra was also the club’s aim, and we’re now where we needed to be,” Raiola told Italian radio station CRC.

“All I can say is at Ciro Ferrara’s farewell game at the San Paolo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic called me and told me: “Mino, I want to end my career in Naples. 

“That’s because the mentality of the Neapolitans is the one closest to his, and if the league remained as it was back then, he might have done just that.”
