Paulo Dybala : Paul Pogba Misses Juventus Life 

Featured Image

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is missing life at Juventus, according to his former team-mate Paulo Dybala.

Dybala, who played alongside Pogba at Juventus during the 2015/16 campaign, says he keeps in regular contact with the 23-year-old and revealed his former team-mate still has a huge soft spot for his old club.

“I’m still talking to Pogba,” Dybala told Corriere dello Sport. “We are missing him for his quality on the pitch and his jokes in the dressing room.

“However, he misses us as well. Just look at our position in the table and the one of Manchester United.”

Juventus are four points clear of Roma at the top of Serie A, while the Red Devils are sixth in the Premier League.

Pogba has scored five times in 22 games since his mega-money switch to Old Trafford.

United currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League, 13 points behind leaders Chelsea, while Juventus are four points clear at the top of Serie A.

Federico Macheda Reveals Sir Alex Ferguson’s “Encouraging” Phone Call To Him

Featured Image

Federico Macheda has revealed he recently received an encouraging phone call from his former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson as he attempts to get his career back on track.

Following a disappointing spell with Cardiff City, the striker has returned to his native to Italy where he has signed a one-year contract with Serie B outfit Novara, with the option for a one-year extension.

Speaking about his new move on Facebook, Macheda said: “This will be a new beginning for me. I will take what has happened in the past with me but now only the present counts and the future.

“My goal is to do well from the start; I will have a couple of weeks when I will make a mini preparation to ensure my condition is optimal. My goal is to jump right in the squad.”

It marks a low point in a professional career which began in spectacular fashion for Macheda when, at the age of just 17, he scored a dramatic injury-time winner against Aston Villa at Old Trafford during United’s title-winning season in 2008/09.

“Sir Alex Ferguson is a great person and has taught me so much. He called me three weeks ago to see how I was and how my career is going. He coached the greatest players in history, and the fact that he thinks about me makes me proud,” he said on Facebook.

“When I was little I watched [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic. He was the striker who showed me the most important things. I played with many stars, like [Wayne] Rooney, [Carlos] Tevez, [Dimitar] Berbatov and training with them every day, you can always learn something and this made me better.”

Project Spread: Showing Love Through The Gospel

Featured Image

It is the mandate of the church to go into the world and preach the gospel.

The greatest of this gospel is that of love. It is a core responsibility of the Christian to show love to all irrespective of religious and cultural backgrounds.

House on the Rock has taken this mandate seriously as displayed over the years through its outreach program, Project Spread. Project Spread is a love laced program aimed at making the Christmas season a memorable one for families around Lagos State. This is done by donating food items, clothes, medical supplies and more to families in selected local government areas so they have a reason to celebrate joyfully during the Yuletide season.

Last year, over 2,400 families across 4 different local government areas were beneficiaries of the Project Spread outreach. The Christmas-themed giveaway had families receiving food items and free medical supplies. It was done simultaneously at Makoko, Ijesha, Lagos Island (Isale Eko) and Jakande communities across Lagos state. This year, Project Spread is scheduled to visit Lagos Island, Sangotedo, Ajegunle and Elegushi communities, on the 17th of December 2016.

The Senior Pastor, House on the Rock church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, will be present at some of the locations to present the gifts to the families gathered and share uplifting words as is his usual style. Free health consultation and supplies will also be distributed.

Lagos State can be better when the church plays its part. With Project Spread, the church is delivering on its commitment to putting smiles on thousands of faces this Christmas and in turn, making Lagos State a better state, one family at a time.

King Sunny Ade, Awilo Longomba, Onyeka Onwenu, Shina Peters Shut Down Lagos At Sunny On Sunday Concert

Featured Image

King Sunny Ade’s legendary status was again confirmed at his eponymous world-class concert tagged Sunny On Sunday which held at the Temple Balmoral Hall, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The flawless execution of the concert by the reckoning of many was a promise that was delivered by leading event management company, Temple Management Company. Before the event, the company had first assured fans of a world-class concert. Different shades of incandescent lights combined to transform the newly constructed Temple Balmoral Marquee into a theatre of resplendence. Each of the performing acts, mounted the huge stage with full compliments of their bands to churn out ear-tingling melodies.

By the time, the event went full swing, the hall was packed full as the event flow was masterfully marshaled by comedian, Tee A and interspersed with generous doses of humour by the funny duo of Funke Akindele and Lolo Omotunde.

To whet the appetite of the audience, the event opened with performances by fast-rising acts including Tyson Noir, Jeff, Moyeen and Niniola. Darey, Iyanya and Omawumi, took the momentum several notches higher with medleys of their popular tunes including Pray For Me, Kukere and Bottom Belle Medley, respectively.

King Sunny Ade pulled a surprise on Onyeka Onwenu as he joined her on stage to melt hearts with a seamless rendition of Wait For Me. Onyeka did not leave the stage without serenading the well-heeled audience with tunes like Nyogogo and Ekwe.

The celebrant, King Sunny Ade nodded and danced along as his evergreen tunes were given a remake by Darey, Tiwa Savage and Sir Shina Peters (SSP). Showing no signs of let-up, SSP dressed like a hip hop star and bouncing with youthful energy took the audience down memory lane with his classics.

Congolese sensation, Awilo Longomba with his exotic dancers sent the audience into revelry with his monster hit songs such as Gate Le Coin, Coupe Bibamba and Karolina.

Although he is 70 and aging gracefully, King Sunny Ade did not miss the chance to dazzle the audience with his famous footwork. When challenged to a dance duel by the Congolese sensation, Papa Youth as he is fondly called responded with equal gusto and verve sending the audience into frenzy.

Bringing the gig to a climax, King Sunny Ade and his African Beats Band teased the audience with a medley of popular evergreen songs from his collection including Easy Motion Tourist, Merciful God and Aye N’reti among others. He then launched into praise chants of eminent personalities at the occasion. Toyosi Adegeye, the 13 year-old daughter of the veteran musician capped the evening with a medley of Yoruba gospel songs.

According to official statistics, the concert was beamed live on DsTV and GOTV to 278 million viewers within Nigeria and the rest of Africa. Confirming this, Terfa Tilley-Gyado, Director Communication, Temple Management Company added the concert was the most talked about with almost 12 million impressions on social media.

Speaking after the event, King Sunny Ade said, “I am impressed by the delivery and execution of the concert by Temple Management Company. They are pride of the entertainment, sports and arts industry. I dare they say that they are number one. I recall that when I was first approached by them, I made my enquiries and I was convinced by the feedback that I got. Now, I can say confidently that I did not make a wrong choice. I am also grateful to every organization and individual that supported one way or the other.”

The event attracted serving Governors and Ministers including Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, Ikpeazu Okezie of Abia State, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Power, Works and Housing , Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola and Kayode Fayemi, Minister of Mines And Steel.

Tiskies Opens Showroom, Unveils Logo

Featured Image

A new firm, Tiskies Global, has opened its fashion showroom for business in Lagos.

The business outfit which deals with the production of garment of African prints is set to redefine the fashion industry as it is determined to serve as boost to Nigeria’s economic development.

Speaking at the launch held in Lagos where the logo was also unveiled, Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mrs. Abiola Aluko described the birth of the firm as a dream come true having gone through several months of incubation before its realization. She therefore urged Nigerians to play their role by ensuring that they wear and patronize locally made materials.

While attesting to the creative ingenuity scattered around the country among the youths especially in the fashion industry, Aluko said she was ready and committed to the cause of encouraging a naijacentric economy where locally made prints would be showcased. She said “We want to be part of a new birth of Nigeria. We are determined to show that something good can come out of this country. That is why Tiskies came to life. As we set up for business, we will be having fabrics in different sizes which ranges from extra small to extra-large. We want to make the country again. We are going to be naijacentric. We are going to dress Nigeria and we believe Nigeria will be great again.”

While expressing absolute faith in the country’s ability to succeed as it goes through the journey, Aluko said the firm remains committed to upholding the best standard and quality in its production. She however promised that the garment would soon become an important item for exportation as there are plans to kick start it come 2017.

Commending the firm for a job well done, The President of Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria, FADAN, Mrs. Funmi Ajila-Ladipo said it is a remarkable feat that a garment factory was birthing in Nigeria despite the challenges confronting the industry noting that this would help grow the industry the more. While seeking the support of the organization as it continually engages the government for relevance, Ladipo urges government to assist it by ensuring that it builds production hubs across the country.

She said ”It is a good thing to be in the clothing industry. But unfortunately, we live in a country where clothing is not given relevance. You can imagine the passion expressed by different people in this industry. Nigerians are indeed very creative. So, I think government need to help entrepreneurs by creating production hubs across the country. If there are production hubs, the situation where different styles and pattern are being replicated in different places would not occur because it would have curbed copies. So, I ask you to join FADAN .We need your support to be able to persuade government so that they don’t see the industry as entertainment but as a business.”

However, dignitaries at the event were treated to a night of fun and beautiful music rendition as the duo of popular comedian, Ajele and sensational artiste, DJ Sose, Dance reHub and Aramide wow the audience with their talents.

ACTIVITIES OF BANKS AT THE REGISTRATION CENTRE

  • All Registration Centres will be given a list of accredited banks.
  • Each Registration Centre will be allowed to choose the bank it would like to work with.
  • After choosing the bank, an officer from the bank will be stationed at the centre to do the following:
  • Assist candidates to create their profile and pay through any of the payment options they wish to use.
  • Collect Seven Hundred Naira (N700) per candidate for either registration and/or biometric capture directly into the account of the centre.
  • The banks will be expected to open avenues of payment:
    1. Payment of Application Fees
    2. Payment of Seven Hundred Naira (N700) to the designated account of the Registration Centre.
  • At the end, give a receipt to each candidate for the Seven Hundred Naira (N700) payment for registration or biometric capturing at the centre.

ABUSE BY APPROVED CBT CENTRES AND CYBER CAFÉ OPERATORS

It has been observed by the Board, that in the past, there were lots of irregularities during registration of candidates. Some of which are as follows:

1. IRREGULARITIES OBSERVED

  • Off-line registration means that candidates are given template form to fill and enter their details and the Registration centres would later enter their data for them on-line at a later time when the candidates were not present.
  • Registration Centres did off-line registration for candidates and in the process of completing them on-line, mismatched their images and made mistakes in the candidates’ data.
  • Registration Centres deliberately went to the hinterland to register candidates off-line in order to create Special Centres where they could further perpetrate Irregularities during examinations.
  • Punish uncompromising candidates by changing their centres and/or institutions without their knowledge/consent.
  • Swapped and replaced particulars of uncompromising candidates with others and used money paid for other candidates.

MEASURES TAKEN BY THE BOARD

  • Payment for access code by Registration Centres has been cancelled. All systems in the Registration Centre will be enabled for the registration.
  • None of these systems therefore can be used for registration outside the Registration Centre.
  • Candidates will now have access to all the systems at the Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre for the registration exercise.
  • This is unlike before where only one system was used by the Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre for registration.
  • Candidates will be properly educated to understand that their registration numbers are private and security numbers which they must not divulge.
  • Any candidate who discloses his/her registration number, does so at his/her own risk.
  • An alert system has been created for notifications on changes in the candidates details at each stage of the registration process.

ACCOUNTABILITY IN REGISTRATION CENTRES

  • Registration Centres are hereby urged to appoint credible staff to man their Centre to ensure credibility and accountability.
  • It has also been observed that some Public Registration Centres refused registration because of “low return”.
  • These returns are not low as claimed but officers in charge do not remit appropriately.

Ivan Rakitic Likely To Reject Manchester United Offers And Sign New Barcelona Contract 

Featured Image

Ivan Rakitic is set to pen a new deal at Barcelona amid rumoured interest from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Juventus, according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.

The Croatia international has seen competition for places from the like of Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez, but is still considered an integral part of Luis Enrique’s side.

Ivan Rakitic’s agent, Arturo Canales, said last month: “Ivan is very happy at FC Barcelona, where he has been tremendously successful and has a contract with the club until 2019.

“Ivan loves football and is only 28-years-old. Having played in Switzerland, Germany and Spain, who knows if one day he’ll be ready to have an experience in England, but for now he’s an FC Barcelona player.”

Rakitic is also said to be determined to keep his family in Spain

Rakitic has started 10 La Liga games this season, but has been subbed in many of those encounters despite Andres Iniesta was out for more than a month due to injuries. Furthermore, the former Sevilla star was replaced in the recent El Clasico against Real Madrid, following a poor display, and was an unused substitute in the 3-0 victory over Osasuna on the weekend despite also missing the previous encounter with Borussia Monchengladbach due to suspension.

Crime Buhari Shouldn’t Commit Against Nigeria Again

Crime Buhari Shouldn’t Commit Against Nigeria Again – Niran Adedokun

I do not know if it’s just me, but it does seem like the world is not paying so much attention to the current administration’s triumphalism over its predecessor and the reign of sleaze alleged to have been its pastime.

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

It appears to me that while we battle to hinge the current dwarfish accomplishments on the failure of that administration, Goodluck Jonathan, its very personification, has become the poster boy for what is good about respecting the rights of the ordinary man to decide who their leaders should be.

Africa and some parts of the world’s recognition of the nobility of Jonathan’s respect for the integrity of the electoral process is, of course, not a celebration of corruptive values, but a poignant signal to the multiple floorboards on which national development rests.

While official pilfering of resources is antithetical to the development of nations, respecting the liberty of a people to vote out a government that has not truly represented their interests is by the far, the greatest benefit a government can bestow on its people.

For instance, the brief leadership of the late Umaru Yar’Adua could not be said to have attained any significant developmental milestone, but Nigeria cannot forget the honestly with which Yar’Adua reacted to the election that brought him to power. He denounced it as far from fair and promised to institute a culture of electoral dignity in the nation. He started the process before his eventual death.

But before his death, he apparently got Jonathan, who took over from him to imbibe his avowed crusade such that on attaining power, Jonathan deepened his erstwhile principal’s reform.

He appointed Prof Atthairu Jega and a number of other uncompromising individuals on the Independent National Electoral Commission. This singular step raised the confidence of the citizenry in the capacity of the electoral umpire which was nothing more than a pawn in the hands of the President Olusegun Obasanjo administration.

All that changed under Jonathan such that at the end of the 2011 elections, international observers testified that Nigeria was indeed on its path to democratic growth.

Mariya Nedelcheva, head of the European Parliament delegation to the elections, was quoted as saying: “Saturday’s elections are a convincing proof that the Nigerian authorities, institution and electorate are determined to remain owners of their destiny and to run even better elections in the future.”

As she predicted, mid-term elections in Edo, Anambra, Ondo, Ekiti and Osun states between 2011 and 2015 showed a progressive improvement which aggregated in the phenomenal 2015 elections that saw an incumbent voted out of office for the first time in Nigeria!

Jonathan who, when asked questions about fighting corruption, would on several occasions insist that there was no act of malfeasance greater than stealing the votes of people and denying them the freedom to choose their leaders, conceded defeat in the election and congratulated his opponent, Muhammadu Buhari to the relief and acclaim of a world, which had held its breath in anticipation of the mother of all political conflagrations.

But a truly self-determining electoral body and a government, committed to its pledge delivered a palpably tensed country from what threatened to be the beginning of its end.

With Jonathan and his Peoples Democratic Party, out of office, Nigerians grew confident of the irreversibility of the democratic progress. A self-assurance predicated on the seeming progressive credentials of the All Progressives Congress which took over from Jonathan.

But hasn’t these expectations of Nigerians been truncated?

The first arrow fired at the hope for the sustenance of the victory Nigeria was building against electoral insanity was the appointment of Hajia Aminat Bala Zakari as the acting chair of INEC shortly after Buhari’s swearing-in.

Now, Zakari, in spite of any qualification, is said to be related to the President and such affiliations, no matter how remote, should disqualify anyone from heading an institution whose independence should be absolute. Zakari’s appointment created a storm of suspicion on the impartiality of the administration, one which her replacement by Prof Mahmood Yakubu has been unable to cure.

Yakubu’s inability to heal INEC of its perceived incompetence and subservience was worsened by the initial wave of inconclusiveness that hit his management of INEC. It is in fact, possible to suggest that this INEC has not conducted any election which has not left room for some distrust.

From legislative rerun elections in Rivers State that were withheld for one year until a threat by the Senate to suspend sitting, to the premature postponement of the governorship election in Edo State, to the confusion created over which candidate was qualified to represent the PDP and the eventual denial of the candidate an opportunity to share his vision with the people in Ondo State and the governorship elections in Bayelsa and Kogi states, the INEC has not given Nigerians much to hope for.

Neither has President Buhari offered more than a token of assurance about his readiness to reverse the nation’s rapid loss of electoral discipline.

To his credit, Buhari has instituted a group of Nigerians to advise him on electoral reforms, (something which many consider a wasteful venture). He has also spoken a few hollow words on his determination to change national attitude to elections. But has the man shown the capacity for the self-discipline that this demands?

Take his reaction to the governorship primaries of the APC in Ondo State. That he validated the primary that an organ of the party picked holes in, holes that made sense to the non-partisan, generated worries.

You will get more terrified about this when you recall his reaction to previous elections that he lost.

Speaking to members of the Congress for Progressive Change, from Niger State sometime in 2012, Buhari was quoted as saying: “…they either conduct a free and fair election or they go a very disgraceful way. If what happened in 2011 should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood.”

Here, he spoke about an election, which he could not have won by any stretch of imagination, one in which sympathisers of his party, unleashed violent protests in which hundreds, including 11 members of the National Youth Service Corps lost their lives!

Now, compare that to Ghana’s president-elect, Nana Addo Akufo-Addo, who was only marginally defeated in the 2008 and 2012 elections but chose to move in the interest of “economic stability and international goodwill.” He made no inflammatory statements and incited no violence.

My fear is that Buahri either has a wrong perception of what electoral integrity is or he only thinks that elections are fair when he or his party wins. Either of this is associable to his self-righteous, messianic disposition and is capable of doing total discredit to his administration.

The point here is that, while one can, at this stage, safely conclude that this administration does not have the capacity to turn around Nigeria’s economy in any dramatic way, it will do the President a lot of good to pursue electoral reforms with all his strength.

Even though it is unsure that the war against corruption will be won in any sustainable way, one sees a sense of financial discipline and accountability in government officials at the moment.

The same measure of success is discernable from the war against the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeastern part of the country.

Can Buhari kindly employ the same single-mindedness towards leaving Nigeria with a credible electoral process? Can he start by stamping a sense of morality in which politicians are dissuaded from pursuing office at all costs? Can he then ensure that agencies of the state are not deployed against opposition political parties? Can he work to see that the vote of every Nigerian counts?

If, at the end of it all, he achieves no other thing than this, Nigerians and the world would forgive him and remember him for the liberty to decide who leads them by themselves.

That is a legacy worth more than all the power and wealth that the world has ever seen. That is what Jonathan currently rides on. Anything short of this would be an unforgivable crime against Nigeria.

Arsenal Set To Lose Out On Signing Julian Draxler As PSG Lead The Chase 

Featured Image

Paris Saint-Germain are leading the race to sign Julian Draxler from Schalke ahead of Arsenal and Juventus, according to Le Parisien.

The 23-year-old, valued at around £30m, was booed by Wolfsburg supporters as he came on as a sub in the weekend defeat by Hertha.

The Ligue 1 champions have struggled so far and need a boost for the final months of the season.

The 23-year-old’s attitude both on and off the pitch has also come into question with Wolfsburg willing to listen to any offers of around £30million.

The player was also booed by his own supporters when he came on as a substitute in the 3-2 defeat against Hertha Berlin on Saturday as relationship between player and club hit rock bottom.

And according to French publication Le Parisien, PSG have stolen a march on the rest of their rivals having a €30m bid accepted for the midfielder whilst Arsenal have also joined the chase.

Draxler will now hold talks with the French giants over a potential January transfer.

But Arsene Wenger will be hoping Arsenal’s strong German contingency will be enough to tempt Draxler into a move to the Emirates.

The Gunners have been linked with Draxler on numerous occasions and even launched a £43m bid for him in the summer.

Rangers Manager Urges Billy Gilmour To Remain At The Club Despite Interest From Chelsea, Barcelona And Bayern 

Featured Image

Mark Warburton has told Rangers wonderkid Billy Gilmour that Ibrox is the place to be if he wants to realise his footballing dreams.

The 15-year-old playmaker has been linked with a move to Chelsea, with newspaper reports claiming he was shown round the London club’s training ground last week.

Mark Warburton said : “Billy Gilmour is a Rangers player and I hope very much that he sees a pathway here and works his way through to our first team. Whatever happens from there happens.

“It’s fully understandable that clubs will be interested. He’s a very talented player and every Premier League club will have scouts watching. They are aware of all the best players in every country round the world.

“All you can do as a club is be honest. Are we going to outbid certain clubs? No, it’s not going to happen. But can we offer them a pathway in a superb environment and a fantastic following? Yes we can.”

It may be for many of these young players – and not just Billy – that they are best served by staying at their home club, developing into the first team and once you have 40-50 appearances under your belt, then you move.

“Liam Burt – who came on against Hearts at the weekend – shows that if you do well, you will get your chance.

“I saw Billy play for our under-20s last weekend. As a 15-year-old up against four or five Dundee first-teamers, he was excellent. But he’s 15 and he needs to be looked after properly and taken through his development stages. Hopefully we can realise that here at Rangers in out first team.”

Chelsea Transfer Target Daniele Rugani Signs New Juventus Contract

Featured Image

Defender Daniele Rugani has renewed his Juventus contract for another five years which will keep him with the club until 2021, the Serie A champions have announced.

Rugani has attracted the interest of the Chelsea earlier this season, with manager Antonio Conte eying a potential deal.

However, Juve announced the completion of a new deal for Rugani on their official site and social media channels, with a statement that shows how important they feel the player will be for the future.

Although he officially signed with the Serie A champions in 2013, they loaned him back to Empoli where he had spent most of his youth career before he made his debut for Juve in 2015.

The statement reads: “Classy, composed, timely in the challenge and also among the goals of late, Rugani is quickly developing into an outstanding defender.

“Coach Massimiliano Allegri believes he has what it takes to be a key Juventus player for many years to come, and it’s easy to see why.

“The centre-back has played for the national team from under-17’s upwards and made his full debut for the senior team in November.”

Daniele Rugani told Juventus official website

“I am proud to have renewed his contract for five years until 2021, “This route that I’ve taken gives me great satisfaction. I want to say lots of things about it, it means that the club believes in me, that I’m doing well and I’m happy and proud of this.

“I’m happy because I was born a Juve fan and to extend for five years gives me the greatest satisfaction of all.

“The pressure is always there, including this year because I’m playing more. Now, I’ve found more space but the pressure was also there last year when I had to prove myself.

“What has changed is the maturity and mental awareness that I have gained. This is normal in the development of a player who comes from an exceptional club like Empoli. The difference from last year is that I’m able to handle this better and I think I’ve made progress in this way.”

Tottenham Monitoring Ross Barkley’s Everton Situation 

Featured Image

Tottenham have made a tentative enquiry about Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

Barkley is out of contract in 2018 and has been left out of the team on several occasions by Ronald Koeman this season.

The Standard report that a January move would be difficult but Spurs are looking at the situation closely and would have to offer a minimum of £35m.

Barkley’s current Everton deal has 18 months remaining on it and talks over a new contract have been put on ice while the player tries to hold down a place in manager Ronald Koeman’s side. Koeman has been critical of Barkley this season, but restored him to the team for the victory over Arsenal and was rewarded with an impressive performance.

Barkley has lost his England place since the European Championships

Chelsea have also previously registered their interest in Ross Barkley.
