JAMB Extends 2017 UTME Registration Date, Postpones Examination

Featured Image

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Saturday announced the extension of registration date for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The apex exam board extended the deadline for sale of forms and registration for the exams from the earlier announced April 19 to May 5, while it postponed the 2017 UMTE from May 13 to May 20.

The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-Haq Oloyede, also postponed the mock examination it scheduled for Saturday due to the failure of its technical partners.

Oloyede, who disclosed this in a statement on Saturday, also apologised to candidates for the sudden changes.

He said: “We could not go on with the Mock Examination and hereby announce extension of registration exercise of the 2017 UTME.

“Instead of the earlier announced April 19, the deadline for the sale of forms and registration will now extend to Friday, May 5, 2017. Consequently, the 2017 UTME has also been postponed to start on Saturday, May 13 – 20, 2017.”

“The Mock Examination earlier slated for Saturday, April 8, 2017 has been put on hold.

“This is because the appropriate rehearsal and test-running of the new system has been substantially achieved.

“The plan was to trial-test the readiness of our facilities and address the challenges that may likely confront the main examination.

“At this moment, we have realized that the plan to hold this Mock Examination was good for us. We are now in a better position to achieve better than we would have done without this trial testing. This is why the exercise is at no cost to the candidates.

“It is our strong conviction that this exercise is an experience for us. Our systems analysis has revealed interesting findings that will engender a seamless and successful 2017 UTME exercise.”

Carrick: Moyes Wasn’t Right For United

Featured Image

Micheal Carrick has stated that David Moyes just didn’t work as manager of Manchester United.

The former Everton manager replaced Alex Ferguson at the end of the 2012-13 season, but didn’t last up to a year, as his tenure was a disastrous one.

Carrick denied there was unrest in the dressing room when Moyes was in charge, but accepts the season was a difficult one.

“It was a tough time. I think we can all say that with Sir Alex leaving and the changes that happened after that. It was a tough season, there’s no getting away from that,” he told Sky Sports News.

“We had some success in the Champions League and we weren’t too far away from getting past Bayern [Munich] in the quarter-finals so it’s fine margins I think. When you look at it, it just didn’t work that season and we didn’t have a great season in the end.

“Unfortunately for David, he lost his job so I’m sad how it finished but I suppose that’s football. If you don’t get the results, and you’re the manager, you suffer for it.

“Of course it was going to be a tough job to take, but whether it was impossible or not, I’m not sure. I wasn’t sitting in that seat and I wasn’t in the position to be manager. You’d have to ask him I suppose.

“Just because it’s tough times, it doesn’t mean there’s fighting and you don’t get on or not like each other. Sometimes things just don’t work out for many different reasons and that was the case.”

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Brazilian playmaker, Philippe Coutinho lost 3 kilograms due to an illness before playing against Stoke.

The Brazil international and Firmino both came on at halftime and scored within three minutes, as Liverpool came from behind to win 2-1.

Klopp had previously stated Coutinho would not be travelling with the squad to Stoke, but praised his impact on the game when he was introduced.

Asked if the initial plan was to introduce Coutinho and Firmino later in the game than half-time, Klopp told Sky Sports: “That was the plan really, but of course you never know, Coutinho lost three kilograms in three days, maybe a few people would love to have this but it’s not good for a professional football player!

“Firmino after the last game had a bit of a groin problem and was a bit tired, maybe he could have started but we had to leave him out of training for three days, so it was his first session today!

“It was difficult to decide, but finally everything went well so I’m happy.”

Kante Insists He’s Not One Of The Best Midfielders In The World

N’golo Kante has been described as one of the best midfielders in the world, but he doesn’t agree with the notion.

The France international burst onto the scene after an outstanding season with Leicester City. However the chose to leave the club for Chelsea.

Kante is close to winning the Premier League once again, as he did with Leicester last season. And he has been praised for his contribution.

The humble 26-year-old has, however, told the Daily Mirror: “Last season we were champions with Leicester and at the moment we are top of the league with Chelsea.

“That’s why people put it on me but it is not me. I have been in two good teams.

“I am not one of the best midfielders in the world or something like that. I play with some talented players like Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic and Nathaniel Chalobah. They have different styles and I can learn from everyone.

“I need to keep improving tactically, defensively and offensively for the last pass, the last shot.”

He added: “People say ‘look at his energy, look at his tackling’ but I always wanted to give the best for the team and if I need to run until the end I will try to.

“There is always a chance to play, be healthy and with no problems. Football is something I like so when I have this chance to play I like to give my best.”

EFCC In Manhunt For Owner After Recovering N449m Inside Lagos Shopping Plaza (Watch Video)

Featured Image

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has launched a manhunt for the owner of N448.85 million discovered in a shopping plaza in Lagos State.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), spokesman of the commission in Lagos, Mr. Sam Amadin, on Saturday, said the agency was making efforts to reach the owner of the complex, with a view to knowing who rented the said shop 64.

He said: “The shopping plaza, from preliminary investigation, was built by estate developers. From the developers, we will get the owner of the money.”

”The people around the complex know the owner of the money. The place has not been in use for a long time, the owner only sneaks into the place and keep the money. We will find the owner very soon.“

The commission, on Friday in a statement confirmed the recovery of N448,85million in a shop at the LEGICO Shopping Plaza, in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the commission, disclosed this in a statement, saying the commission acted based on a tip-off from a whistleblower.

He said the money, which was stashed in several ‘Ghana-Must-Go bags’, were in N500 and N1000 denominations.

“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Office, in the evening of Friday, April 7, 2017 uncovered yet another large sum of suspected laundered money to the tune of N448,850,000 (Four hundred and forty-eight million, eight hundred and fifty thousand naira) in a shop at LEGICO Shopping Plaza, Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos,” the statement read.

“The money stashed in several Ghana-Must-Go bags were in N500 and N1000 denominations, hidden in a shop awaiting conversion into foreign currency.

“Acting on a tip-off by a concerned whistleblower, operatives of the Commission swooped on the shopping complex and sought the identity of the owners of two shops, LS 64 and LS 67 which were under lock and key. “The shops had signages of Bureau de Change. Inquiries about the owner of shop 64 indicated that he had not been seen for a long time, as they claimed the shop had not been opened for businesses for close to two years.”

Uwujaren said after the owner of the shop refused to respond to calls, the attention of some traders was drawn to the situation  and they expressed shock.

“Several calls were put to the owner of shop 67, but there was no response,” he said.

“The attention of the plaza’s chairman and some traders were drawn in order to force the shops open. There was no money found in shop 67, but in shop 64 heaps of Ghana-Must-Go bags were found loaded on the floor of the shop. When the bags were unzipped they were found to contain bundles of naira notes totaling N448,850,000.

“Traders interviewed at the premises claimed they were not aware that such money was housed inside the shop, as the place hardly opens for business.

“The commission is investigating the matter in order to unravel the owner and source of the money.”

Fabian Delph Eager To Remain At Manchester City

Featured Image

Fabian Delph is keen to stay at Manchester City next season despite a lack of playing time under Pep Guardiola, reports the Manchester Evening News.

The 27-year-old, signed from Aston Villa in July 2015, has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot since Guardiola replaced Manuel Pellegrini in the City hot-seat.

The England international has started just four of his 11 appearances this term, with just one start coming in the Premier League.

Despite this, Delph is keen remain at the Etihad working under who he feels is the best manager in the world.

“I’m working with the best management team in the world and the best players in the world as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

“We’ve got great chemistry, a lot of the boys are very close, and of course I’d love to be a part of that. But we will have to see what happens at the end of the season.”

Mark Hughes Dismisses Reports Linking Luke Shaw To Stoke City

Featured Image

Mark Hughes has played down reports Stoke are plotting a move for Manchester United defender Luke Shaw, reports The Sentinel.

The England international’s future at Old Trafford has been the subject of debate following Jose Mourinho’s public criticism of his attitude and performances.

But Potters boss Hughes has distanced himself from a move for Shaw, labelling it as unrealistic.

But Hughes, who currently has Erik Pieters and Marc Muniesa at his disposal at left back, said this morning: “You look at all good players, but that’s not one that’s realistic for us, to be honest.”

Shaw’s wages, let alone fee, would certainly eat a huge hole into Stoke’s summer budget, but the option of a season-long loan might be a way around that.

Hughes, however, is unlikely to see left back as one of his priority positions to strengthen in the next transfer window.

Mark Hughes To Give Record Signing Giannelli Imbula One More Chance

Featured Image

Stoke boss Mark Hughes is set to give record signing Giannelli Imbula one more chance before deciding whether to sell him in the summer.

Imbula joined the Potters for £18.3m from Porto, but has struggled to make an impact and last started a Premier League game in December.

Despite reports the club are prepared to take a significant loss and off-load him at the end of the current campaign, Hughes says he has not yet given up hope that the Belgian-born player could be a success.

“It’s fair to say he has struggled this year in terms of having an impact and that’s unfortunate,” he said. “But any decision on any player will not be made during the season.

“He had a bright start when he first came in, but it’s about a consistent level of performance and he has struggled to maintain that to be honest.

“We feel there is more to come from him from a football point of view and we will try and bring that out of him.

“I would really have liked him to have grabbed his opportunity to stay in the team and that hasn’t happened. But he has still got time between now and the end of the season to get more games and hopefully impress.”

Kalidou Koulibaly’s Agent Talks About Chelsea’s £60m Transfer Interest

Featured Image

Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly could be open to a summer move, according to his agent.

Koulibaly, 25, was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea ahead of the current campaign before Antonio Conte eventually went on to complete a surprise deadline deal for David Luiz.

Bruno Satin told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli: “Chelsea were interested but then they signed David Luiz and you also have John Terry and Gary Cahill at the club so there is a lot of competition there.

“So we will see what happens. A lot of the improvements that Koulibaly has made in his game has been down to the coaching of Maurizio Sarri.

“Whatever happens in the future will depend on the president [Aurelio De Laurentiis] and whether or not he decides to evaluate any offers that may come in.”

Wenger: Ozil Cares More Than His Critics Think

Arsene Wenger has revealed that Mesut Ozil was really affected by Arsenal’s champions league last-16 exit and could not deal with it mentally.

The German midfielder has already hit out at critics that criticised him for Arsenal’s poor performance in the 10-2 aggregate loss.

And Wenger has now stated Ozil was really affected by the loss, as he really wanted to win the champions league and he cares more than his critics think.

“[Ozil was affected] because he is very ambitious – he wants to win the Champions League and he has come out many times saying that,” Wenger said.

“If you look at the two games if you take the first 45 minutes in the two games we are qualified but then we went out in such an emphatic way.

“It was difficult to take for everybody and maybe more for him because it a big part of his ambition.

“He cares. What I wanted to say is that people often reproach him by saying he does not care because of his style of play, but he cares much more than people think he does.”
