Dear Buhari, There Is The Need To Restructure Nigeria’s Youth Service (NYSC)

President Buhari: Need to Restructure Nigeria’s Youth Service (NYSC), By Abdulmujeeb Yemi Olaoya

Dear President Buhari,

As you are aware Sir, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme was established with the sole aim of fostering national unity and social integration along the ethnic divides of the Nigeria nation. Forty-three years after, we cannot sincerely avow to be more united than before as a nation. This alongside the notice of several other inadequacies by compatriots led to the clamour in some quarters for the total cancellation of the Scheme, claiming it has outlived its intentions and usefulness.

However, I am writing purposely on how we can re-modify this programme to boost our unity and improve socio-economic indices, while creating job for our teeming youths, reducing crime and restiveness and ensuring true diversfication of our economy and subsequent independent from oil as the major source of foreign earnings in Nigeria.

READ ALSO: NYSC Announces Passing-Out Dates For 2015 Batch ‘B’ Corps Members

From the available information, the Nigerian government, which you head, spends about three hundred thousand naira (#3oo,ooo.oo) on each corp’s member for logistics and annual allowances. Again, in each year, more than a hundred thousand graduates from our various degree-awarding institutions participate in this Scheme. Therefore, the government allocates nothing less than thirty billion naira (#30,000,000,000.00) without corresponding national unity and integration, commensurate to this huge investment on the Nigerian youths yearly.

Sir, it is high time we remodified/restructured the NYSC programme not only as a means of mass mobilisation of our teeeming youth into agriculture (through the farm settlement scheme), and re-orientate their psyche of white and blue collar jobs as the only means of getting quick wealth, improve on food security, curb youth restiveness across the country expressed through militancy, kidnapping, armed robbery, rape and cultism. The youth should also be encouraged to go into agro-business after their mandatory service to the nation, through knowledge transfer and acquired skills.

Furthermore, if in each service year, each corp member should be incentivised to manage an acre or more of either cocoa, palm oil, other food or cash crops, or livestocks. From these, we would have harvests from thousand of cultivated acres annually. That alone can feed us satisfactorily, put more monies into the treasury, while giving us peace of mind, irrespective of the price of oil in the international markets.

History has taught us that the youth are the agents of change. Mr. President, we need to harness the abundant talents, agility, and innovativeness of the Nigerian youth for the betterment of our country.

I wish you good luck in your strive to make Nigeria a better place for all.

Sincerely,

Abdulmujeeb Yemi Olaoya

Hazard: We Can Give No Excuse For Loss

Featured Image

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has stated that the club can have no excuse for their 3-0 loss to rivals Arsenal.

The blues were yet to lose in the EPL under Conte, until they lost 2-1 to Liverpool and followed it with a 3-0 loss to Arsenal.

Arsenal scored three times in the opening 40 minutes, leaving Chelsea with no way back, and Hazard acknowledges his side must improve.

“There are no excuses,” he told the club’s official website. “It was not good. We lost too many duels.

“We came to win the match but we made mistakes – for the first goal, another for the second and then before we knew it we were already 3-0 down.

“Every weekend at the moment we having to come back and score. We did it at Leicester but against Arsenal, who were playing at home, it was not possible.

“They played well. We need to be better. In the last three games in the league there have been nine points available and we have got one. It is disappointing.

“We need to go away and work on what we are doing wrong ahead of the big matches that are coming up.”

With no European football this season, Chelsea’s next test comes away to Hull City on Saturday.

Guillem Balague : Nasri Made Decision To Quit Manchester City

Featured Image

Guillem Balague has revealed that Samir Nasri could have stayed at Manchester City this summer, with Pep Guardiola impressed with how the Frenchman improved his fitness.

“It’s true that Pep Guardiola said to Nasri that he could stay if he wanted, but there would be no guarantees that he would play every game.

“Pep was impressed, having moved him aside with Yaya Toure in the first few days to shed some pounds.

Guardiola feels that if his players are not fit, then the intensity of training means they are more likely to get injured.

“Nasri got fit, and he’s the thinnest he’s ever been since he arrived at City. Nasri thought about staying, but he’s in that point in his career where he needed to rekindle his love for the game.”​

Gerard Pique Hints At MLS Move 

Featured Image

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has hinted that he could be tempted by a move to the MLS before he retires from football. 

“They are both growing, though with different models,” the Spain international said in an interview with La Liga sponsors Pelayo.

“I read that the MLS is the seventh best-attended league in the world, after the five big ones and a sixth one. The fans are hooked on soccer more and more in the United States. I don’t think I’d go to China, but we’ll see about the United States.

“I always said that I would like to retire at Barca, but it would be an attractive option in a few years, as long as I still crave playing soccer.”

It’s not the first time Pique has suggested the United States as a potential post-Barca destination.

During a question-and-answer session on Twitter earlier this year, he mentioned America when asked if he could see himself playing Colombia, where his partner, the singer Shakira, is from.

“We will see what happens in the future. I would like to try another league when I’m about to retire,” he said.

“I don’t know if it would be in America or South America, but I would like it if it was Colombia for Shaki. You never know what will happen in the future, though.”​

Antonio Conte To Get Rid Of Branislav Ivanovic And Gary Cahill

Featured Image

Antonio Conte is planning to let Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill leave Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.

Burnley’s Michael Keane and Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson could be possible arrivals, after Chelsea’s defence hit indifferent form over the past fortnight.

New Chelsea boss Conte failed to land his targets in the summer – Leonardo Bonucci and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Branislav Ivanovic and central defender Gary Cahill, at fault for Arsenal’s first goal, are expected to be phased out as the Chelsea boss looks to bolster his back four, who have conceded 12 goals in just four games.

The pending returns of skipper John Terry and fellow centre back Kurt Zouma from injury will provide more options for Conte in the coming weeks.

Ivanovic was forced to admit that the Chelsea players let their boss down during the defeat.

The Blues boss said after the game: “Sure I was angry, but my players were also angry. Because we weren’t satisfied with our game, with our performance.

“We had a bad performance together – me first, my staff second and then the players. It is important to take this experience as an opportunity to understand that if we want to come back very soon, to fight for something important in England, it is importanto to improve.

“It is important to show during the game how to be a great team and not only one on paper.”​

Heung-min Son Delighted To Have Stayed At Tottenham

Featured Image

Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min admits he is very happy he stayed at the club this summer, having been close to a move to Wolfsburg.

Son, who has scored four goals so far this season, said:

“I am very happy now,”

Son whose better grasp of the English language may help explain the uplift in form. “It was good to talk to the manager. All I have wanted to do is play in the Premier League, it is the best league. I am very happy to stay here and to be out on the pitch.

“It is difficult to say if I thought I would come back after the Olympics. It is difficult to answer. I don’t know how I have to answer. I am staying here and I am very happy I am staying. I like playing for Tottenham and I like scoring goals.

“I wanted to ask him to play more. This is true, every player wants to play games. The gaffer gave me a chance and I am very grateful to him, he has given me this chance to play. I am very happy now. He was very honest with me.”

“He asked to leave after the Olympic Games but we decided he would stay with us,” said Pochettino, who is likely to be without Moussa Sissoko for the Champions League game against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday after he went off with concussion.

“I didn’t want him to go. “You can see his reaction has been good. The expectation on him, when you arrive in a new country, with a different style of football. He struggled to settle, but he’s working very hard and that is the most important thing. “Not all players would be able to do that. I’m impressed with him as a man as well as a footballer. He’s a very nice person and how he works is impressive.”​

Ryan Giggs Holds Talks With Swansea Over Managerial Job 

Featured Image

Ryan Giggs is the leading candidate to become he new Swansea manager, according to The Sun.

The Welshman, 42, could take over from Francesco Guidolin after his disappointing start to the Premier League season.

The Sun report talks have already taken place with Giggs and Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins.

Guidolin’s position looked to be ‘exceptionally fragile’ following that defeat, according to the report.

However, following an encouraging performance in the 3-1 defeat to Man City at the weekend, Guidolin has been given a stay of execution ahead of the Swans’ game against Liverpool on Saturday.

Swansea currently lie in 16th place in the table and are just one point clear of the relegation zone after six games.

However, the report states that Swansea’s new American owners will be reluctant to dismiss Guidolin ‘if the fans and players are prepared to be patient’.

With the international break looming, Cardiff-born Giggs could well be placed on standby for his first permanent managerial role if Swansea suffer a heavy defeat at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

Last week, Giggs denied there had been an approach from the Swans but said it was “no secret” that he would like to get back into football.

Giggs, who was previously caretaker boss at Old Trafford, has been working as a pundit since Louis van Gaal was dismissed as United manager in May.​

Barcelona To Offer Sergi Roberto New Contract

Featured Image

Barcelona want to improve and extend Sergi Roberto’s contract at the club, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The La Liga champions are planning a raft of contract extensions, with the high-profile quartet of Leo Messi, Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Marc-Andre ter Stegen all in line for new deals.

However, they are also looking to tie down Sergi Roberto, who has established himself as a key first-team player at right-back following the departure of Dani Alves earlier this year.

The rise of Sergi Roberto is one of the best stories in Barça’s recent history. Ever since earning first team promotion four years ago, he struggled to find his place on the team, and the pressure of being the next great midfielder to come out of the club’s youth system didn’t help. But with the arrival of Luis Enrique, Roberto became to gain confidence, and became a key member of the squad last season because of his ability to perform well in different positions.

Thanks to Dani Alves’ departure, he became the starting right-back and has played fantastic football in that position, and he’s set to get paid as an undisputed starter. Well deserved, Sergi.

NBA: Nerlens Noel Worried About Sixers’ Center Situation

Featured Image

The Philadephia 76ers’ Nerlens Noel has expressed his confusion about the center situation at the 76ers and the fact that the team did nothing to address the issue.

The 76ers are going into the new season with 3 Centers, and it’s not an ideal situation to be in as all three of them deserve starting minutes. “I think it’s just silly. This situation that we are in now with three starting centers.” Noel said on Sunday

Noel would be competing for playing time on the floor with Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor, all three of them being lottery picks. Noel in 2013, Embiid in 2014 and Okafor in 2015 and as it stands, Embiid is the expected starting center for the team in the coming season.

Something needs to happen to sort out that position for the Philadelphia 76ers.  Before last season ended, everybody knew something had to be done. The front office knew it, head coach Brett Brown knew it even the fans have known it for some time.

Joel Embiid has been unable to play for the team since he was drafted in 2014 due to injury. He has however been cleared fit for the new 2016/2017 season. Add that to the fact that Jahlil Okafor is a budding Franchise Player who is basically Philadelphia royalty. He will also be back from the injury he picked up in March.

How Barcelona Almost Sold Right-back Sensation Sergi Roberto

Featured Image

Sergi Roberto has been a revelation at Barcelona this season, but reports suggest he was close to being sold earlier this year.

Roberto has impressed at right-back this season and has also claimed a league-high four assists although a report in Sport outlines how the club would have sold him had it not been for their ban on registering players.

In the summer of 2015, the club reportedly met with the 24-year-old’s agent Josep Maria Orobitg to tell him that the player had no long-term future at the club, and they would happily facilitate either a permanent or loan move for him.

However, with the Catalan club’s ban on registering newly signed players, Luis Enrique opted to keep the Masia youth graduate as a temporary back-up for Dani Alves at full-back, despite Roberto’s most natural role being as a central midfielder with the youth teams.

The report goes on to say that once Aleix Vidal’s clearance to play had been received in January 2016, then Roberto would be sold.

Due to injuries last season to Alves and a small squad, the youth graduate ended up making 49 appearances for the club and going into this campaign he was preferred to Vidal at right-back following the departure of Alves to Juventus.

Bobrisky denies being gay

“I am not gay. No, I am not gay,” he said. “I think it is because of my look. Like imagine, a guy wearing makeup.

“Outside Nigeria like UK, America, they don’t find it new. They feel its normal but in Nigeria they feel you are mad.”

He said of the anti-gay laws: “We are in Nigeria and there is this law which I am in support of that law because I see no reason why your mother will give birth to you and you will say you will not give birth in future. It is not possible now.

“If my mum and dad did not give birth to me, I wouldn’t be this Idris. I am not in support of gay marriage.”

Lukas Podolski : Jose Mourinho Treatment Of Bastian Schweinsteiger ‘Unfair’ 

Featured Image

Lukas Podolski says Jose Mourinho’s treatment of Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is “unfair”.

The German midfielder, 32, has been left out by Mourinho this season, and his compatriot has sprung to his defence.

“What happened to [Schweinsteiger] is unfair,” Podolski told Bild. “It is not correct to deport Basti to the second team. A coach must always keep the doors open to all players and especially to players like Schweini.”

Schweinsteiger made it clear prior to the end of the summer transfer window that he has no intention of playing for another team in Europe, but Podolski believes the MLS could be an intriguing option.

“I think America is great. Moving abroad is good for personality development and it would also be good for our children,” added Podolski.

“Clearly it would be possible to play with Schweinsteiger in the States.”​

Featured Image

Chris Smalling has backed Manchester United and England’s ‘main man’ Wayne Rooney to start firing again after being dropped by Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho’s decision and the form of Rooney will naturally lead to questions over his role for club and country, but stand-in captain Smalling has no doubt his team-mates’ quality will shine through once again.

“Regardless of whatever the situation is, whatever game, whether he is on the bench or playing or whatever, he is always that same type of character and that’s why he is England’s main man and our main man.

“I think he’s a very experienced guy and he’s played that many games that I think it’ll only be a matter of time before he’s back in there and firing again because he’s quality.”​
