2019 Election: Tinubu Says No Automatic Ticket For Buhari

Featured Image

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday declared that President Muhammadu Buhari cannot get an automatic ticket for the 2019 election.

He said that the party would follow the normal democratic process in choosing its flagbearer in the 2019 Presidential Election, adding that the leadership of the party had not endorsed President Buhari as its sole candidate for the forthcoming presidential election.

Mr. Tinubu spoke with journalists on Wednesday in Akure, the Ondo State capital, after a meeting with the leadership of Afenifere at the Akure home of its leader, Reuben Fasoranti.

His statement is coming on the heels of a recent endorsement by state governors of the party for the president to run in 2019.

Tinubu, who was at the meeting with the Governor of Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, his deputy, Mr. Agboola Ajayi and the Acting Chairman of the APC in the state, Mr. Ade Ademehin, said Buhari was a man who believed in normal democratic process and the rule of law.

According to him, “No governors can appropriate the power of endorsement to themselves. Buhari is a believer in the process. The Buhari, I know, believes in the rule of law. We wanted him even before the last convention and primary of the party and Akeredolu is here standing with me, he was not the governor then. He was one of the leading delegates that voted properly and Buhari was a clear winner.

“We followed all the constitutional provision and an individual or group’s opinion does not really matter at this stage, Buhari will want a normal process. Buhari that, I know, who says he will lose at any convention? But if the national body, the NEC (National Executive Committee) and all of us as members endorsed him as our single candidate, we will not be violating INEC regulations, we will not be violating our party constitution.

“What you are hearing is just a campaign by other people who might like to do so. Buhari has not excluded anybody, and he has not infringed on anybody’s ambition if there is. We can not be sycophantic about it.”

Leon Goretzka , 22, is only contracted to the Bundesliga club until next summer, meaning he will be available to pick up on a free.

The midfielder “is aware of Arsenal’s interest, and the club believe they are in a strong position” after snapping up Sead Kolasinac from Schalke for free in the summer.

I Always Expected Goals From Cristiano Ronaldo And Karim Benzema – Zinedine Zidane

Featured Image

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he is “happy” for Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema after the pair netted braces in the 6-0 win over APOEL yesterday night

Ronaldo and Benzema have come in for criticism this season, with Ronaldo having scored just one goal in five matches and Benzema not netting in half-a-dozen outings before the triumph in their Champions League fixture in Cyprus.

Zinedine Zidane is quoted by MARCA: “I am happy for them and they will keep working now. We knew that this was going to happen, that the goals would come. You need to keep working, we know they are two very good players and now we need to focus on the next game.

“We are calm, we have had some bad moments but we will also have some good ones. We are on a good run as recently we have been doing things well. It is not easy to score six goals against any team and it is not right to say that it is because you are against a weak side.”

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has admitted a move to Man Utd remains “a possibility”.

Antoine Griezmann was repeatedly linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer and was quoted as saying his chances of going there were “six out of 10”.

“In June, I extended my contract. I’m linked to the club until 2022,” he said. “Although I might be missing out on titles, I have everything here to be happy but that does not mean to say I won’t go one day.

“I haven’t made that decision. It all depends on various factors. I have nothing against England except for the weather. Manchester United is a possibility.

“As much as I repeat that I am delighted at Atletico, I have a great coach and great team-mates, they regularly ask me about my future. I do not exclude anything.”

Griezmann was jeered by his own fans when hauled off during the goalless draw with Real Madrid last weekend, having gone eight matches without a goal.

Jose Mourinho Denies Any Rift With Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho insists his decision to omit Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Man Utd’s match-day squad against Newcastle was based purely on form.

“The story is always the same. In some positions, when you don’t have injuries, you have lots of options in other positions,” Mourinho said, speaking ahead of United’s Champions League game against Basel on Wednesday.

“In this moment, we have Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay.

“So I can imagine, next week, you are going to ask – why is this player not playing?

“Micki is not playing because we had lots of options for that match. I decided to play Marcus Rashford and Martial together,” he said.

“For many weeks, the question was – why do they not play together? Now, the question is why is Micki not playing.

“The answer is very simple – until the international board change the rules, I can only start with 11!”

The Nigerian Army has ordered all its officers and soldiers to be proficient in Nigeria’s three major languages before December 2018.

The directive was contained in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Brigadier General Sani Usman, on Wednesday in Abuja.

The Army, in the statement, directed the soldiers to immediately commence the learning of Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba as part of the force’s new language policy.

The statement reads, “The Nigerian Army has introduced a new Language Policy. The study of foreign and local languages is worldwide practice among armies, in which officers and soldiers are encouraged to be multi-lingual. The Policy will foster esprit-de-corps and better communication with the populace to enhance information gathering, civil-military relations, increase understanding between militaries when operating abroad and assist officers and soldiers to perform their duties professionally.

“It is to be noted that English remains the official language in the Nigerian Army. Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa languages could be used during Civil Military Cooperation activities or interrogation. Therefore all Nigerian Army personnel have been given one year to learn the three major Nigerian languages. Invariably, by December 2018, all Nigerian Army personnel are expected to learn the three major Nigerian languages. The standard of proficiency to be attained is the basic level. Certificated proficiency level will attract Language Allowance.

“The ability to speak the 3 major Nigerian languages will be an added advantage to those applying for recruitment or commissioning into the Nigerian Army. Therefore, prospective candidates are encouraged to learn Nigerian languages other than their mother tongues.

“Before now, the Nigerian Army officially encouraged the learning of French, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese and Swahili. French language is an assessed subject in some career courses and examinations for Nigerian Army personnel.”

Manuel Neuer Won’t Be Rushed Back From Injury – Juup Heynckes

Featured Image

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will only return to action when he is 100 percent healthy, says manager Jupp Heynckes.

Manuel Neuer is recovering from a hairline fracture in his left foot suffered in training back in September, and is on track with his rehabilitation schedule.

However, Heynckes, who was speaking at a news conference ahead of Bayern’s Champions League group stage match with Anderlecht on Wednesday, declared he would not rush the German international back into action.

“I think he is on schedule,” he said on Tuesday. “But I’ve always protected my players. With me, no player starts again until he has recovered completely. That’s why there’s no pressure from my side at all.”

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge gave a more detailed update on Neuer’s recovery, telling reporters: “He’ll soon be able to put down the crutches.

“There’s no reason to be pessimistic. Everything is as the doctors said it would be. It’s all going to plan.”

Neuer’s backup, Sven Ulreich, came in for criticism after shaky early displays this season, but has since put in more assured performances for the Bundesliga leaders.

And he says he’s been caught off guard by the sudden praise from Bayern supporters and former players.

“Everything goes so quickly in football. A few weeks ago, Lothar Matthaus said I have a problem with my eyes and now he praises me,” said Ulreich.

“I don’t give much thought to it. I just concentrate on the next matches.

“The coach has put a lot of focus on the defence. The aim is always to keep a clean sheet. We are defending compact again and working together as a team at the back.”

Besiktas defender Pepe has admitted that he would like to be reunited with former Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s current £365,000-a-week contract doesn’t expire until 2021, but it is far from certain the 32-year-old will remain at Real for the duration.

Since arriving in Turkey, Pepe has regularly praised his new club’s fans, drawing some protest from supporters back in Madrid.

Paulo Dybala Can’t Promise He’ll Remain A Juventus Player

Paulo Dybala says he can not “promise” that he will stay at Juventus for the rest of his career and admits he misses former team-mate Paul Pogba.

“I must admit I miss Dani Alves and Pogba,” he told France Football. “Alves has an amazing vision and is really self-confident, he is one of the best players I’ve ever seen. Pogba is a friend of mine, we were on very good terms on and off the pitch.

“I can’t promise I will stay at Juventus forever. It does not depend on me but I don’t even want to say that this will be my last season here. I want to win everything now, football is strange you never really know what will happen in the future.”

Dybala has made a strong start to the new season, scoring 14 goals in 18 games in all competitions, but the forward is not fazed by comparisons to compatriot Lionel Messi.

“I’d like to battle it out with Neymar for the Ballon d’Or but he is closer to that achievement than I am,” Dybala added. “I need to work to improve and win trophies.

“I’ve always admired Ronaldinho but Messi is like Maradona for me. It’s a honour to play alongside him in the national team. I don’t feel the pressure of being the new Messi, it’s not a bad thing for a footballer, it only depends on how you take it.”

Liverpool Need To Be Better – Jordan Henderson

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has acknowledged that the team “need to be better” after letting a three-goal lead slip in their 3-3 draw at Sevilla

Liverpool looked comfortable at halftime with a three-goal lead thanks to a Roberto Firmino brace either side of Sadio Mane’s strike.

However, a second-half display strewn with defensive errors saw Sevilla peg them back, with Guido Pizarro firing home a 93rd-minute equaliser.

“I am not sure (how the collapse happened),” the Liverpool captain told BT Sport. “The first half was very good, disciplined, score good goals. The second half was very bad, we did not start well at all. We gave a corner away and struggled from then on.

“We stopped playing football and did not get the ball to the front three to cause them problems. it does not feel good. We did not keep the ball and I did think the free-kick and penalty decisions were soft to let them back in the game. We need to be better.

“The message at half-time was to keep going and they were going to give it a right go, they had nothing to lose and we could not cope with it. At least it is still in our hands to top the group.”
