Boko Haram: Nigeria’s VP Offers Clarification On “Controversial” $1Billion Fund

Featured Image

Nigeria’s Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday, said the much-criticised $1billion that state governors asked the Federal Government to withdraw from the Excess Crude Account was not meant for the fight against insurgency alone.

Governors of the 36 states had some days ago approved the withdrawal of $1billion from the Excess Crude Account for the ongoing fight against Boko Haram insurgents in the North-east.

The planned expenditure was made public by the chairman of Governors Forum, Abdulaziz Yari, who said all the state governors had agreed to release the money to the Federal Government.

However, Governor Ayo Fayose swiftly dissociated himself from those who agreed, even as he also accused President Muhammadu Buhari of intending to warehouse the money for his reelection bid in 2019.

The planned withdrawal has also been a subject of political bickering between the ruling All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

In an attempt to quell misinformation, the VP, earlier today, provided further explanation about the controversial $1 billion, saying the money was not meant for Boko Haram war alone.

“It was on account of the security summit that the governors at the Governors’ Forum subsequently decided that they would vote a certain sum of money, which has become somewhat controversial, the $1bn, to assist the security architecture of the country.

“It was to assist all of the issues in the states, including policing in the states, community policing, all of the different security challenges that we have,” Mr. Osinbajo said at the ongoing retreat of secretaries to the government at state and federal levels in Abuja.

Olivier Giroud Could Leave Arsenal Next Month, Says His Agent

Featured Image

Olivier Giroud’s agent has claimed that his client could leave Arsenal next month.

Arsene Wenger recently insisted that Olivier Giroud would not be allowed to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window.

However, Michael Manuello, who represents Giroud, has admitted that the 31-year-old would be open to offers in the winter window as he looks to secure first-team action ahead of next summer’s World Cup.

“It can make things complicated,” Manuello told Foot Mercato . “But conflict, that kind of thing, is not in Olivier’s nature, nor in mine. We always work in harmony. It is normal for Arsene to take this position publicly and we do not have to comment on it.

“Now, depending on the offers which are made, we will sit around a table and talk. The most important thing is to know what is going to be offered or not this winter to find a better game project. Now, again, this project has to present itself.

“It will be outside France if there is one (a transfer). There will be approaches. All clubs looking for an attacker are likely to come. We have to be careful and if there is something obvious, we will try to convince Arsene to reconsider what has been said.”

West Ham Midfielder Manuel Lanzini To Serve Two Match Ban For Diving

Featured Image

West Ham will be without Manuel Lanzini for their next two matches after his appeal against a diving ban was rejected.

West Ham David Moyes hinted on Monday afternoon that he would attempt to overturn the suspension, which was handed to Manuel Lanzini for perceived simulation against Stoke City at the weekend.

The Football Association has acted quickly by upholding the original decision, however, meaning that the Argentinian ace will sit out games against Arsenal in the EFL Cup and Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Lanzini has been charged with “successful deception of a match official” after going to ground under a challenge from Erik Pieters in the Hammers’ 3-0 win on Saturday afternoon, with a three-man panel ruling that the contact was not sufficient enough.

An FA statement read: “Manuel Lanzini will serve a two-match suspension with immediate effect after his denial of a charge of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ was rejected.

“It follows the awarding of an 18th minute penalty for West Ham United against Stoke City on Saturday 16 December 2017. An Independent Regulatory Commission found the charge proven at a hearing today [Tuesday 19 December 2017].”

Manuel Lanzini becomes the second Premier League player to face retrospective action for diving, a month after Everton striker Oumar Niasse also had an appeal rejected.

Barnsley have confirmed a deal has been agreed to transfer ownership of the club to a consortium led by Chinese-American investor Chien Lee.

The Sky Bet Championship club confirmed on Tuesday the EFL has granted approval for the takeover and new shareholders have taken their place on the club’s board.

Berbatov: Football Is A Simple Game

Featured Image

Former Manchester United man, Dimitar Berbatov is having an injury start at Kerala Blasters in his first Indian Super League season.

The Bulgarian went the first three games without a goal, and picked up an injury in their fourth match against FC Goa.

The striker said, “I feel great at the moment. Everybody is very polite. People around the club, the players obviously. I have no problems adapting. The only problem is that I am injured. That is going to be okay as well,” said Berbatov, without revealing an exact date for his return to action.

“You should probably as the doctor [the date of return] because he doesn’t want to give information away. The sooner, the better but we don’t want to risk anything. We put the deadline on [December] 31st but it’s not worth risking if I don’t feel well.”

Despite playing most of his career as a centre-forward, the former Manchester United man doesn’t consider his new deeper midfield role as unchartered territory.

“It is not difficult as long as you understand football the way I do. When you start to get older, you see it from a different angle. Even in training session at [Manchester] United and Spurs, sometimes I play midfield. Obviously, I like to play a lot with the ball. It is a moment in my career when I have to drop back a little bit,” conceded Berbatov.

“I prefer a bit deeper role to control, to make more touches on the ball. Doesn’t mean that if I have a chance I am not going to try and score. That is my nature. As the season progresses, the only thing I want is to recover and stay healthy. As long as you are healthy, everything will be fine.”

Dimitar Berbatov indicated this shift in responsibility as a chance for other young players to come to the spotlight, “I prefer to play as midfielder starting the attack. I always like to see young people coming, to see them work and grow. They can get the spotlight. I want to teach the young people the way I see football. The way I eat, the way I am in training. The small details are important if you want to be a good player.”

Mikel Arteta Reportedly Wanted As Arsene Wenger’s Replacement At Arsenal

Featured Image

Mikel Arteta is being lined up as a future Arsenal manager as the club continue to plan for life after Arsene Wenger, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Mikel Arteta is currently working as assistant coach at runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City after becoming the first confirmed member of Pep Guardiola’s backroom team last summer.

The 35-year-old spent five years at Arsenal as a player, captaining the club for the final two of those, and the Gunners were prepared to offer Arteta a place on their coaching staff after he announced his retirement. But Arteta decided to join City to learn under Guardiola, also turning down the chance to join Mauricio Pochettino’s coaching staff at Tottenham Hotspur.

That has not affected the high regard in which Arteta is held at Arsenal, however, and his success alongside Guardiola has only strengthened the feeling inside the club.

The President, Association of Bureaux De Change Operators of Nigeria, Mr. Aminu Gwadabe, said, “The spikes maybe as a result of the renewed political spending that is going to be a threat to naira stability; secondly, the differential exchange rates at the various official window is also discouraging genuine competition among operators which the parallel market always survived on.”

The interventions were made at the wholesale, the Small and Medium-scale Enterprises, and invisibles segments of the market.

Football fans in Nigeria witnessed an incredible afternoon on Sunday 17th of December 2017 when Guinness Made of Black ambassador Thierry Henry, visited Nigeria to celebrate the unique passion for football among fans in the country.

At the Guinness Fanzone event, which held at Landmark event centre in Lagos, winners of the ‘Be A Front Row Fan’ National Consumer Promotion had the opportunity to watch the West Brom v Manchester United game and celebrate Made of Black Moments with the football legend.

Speaking at the event, Peter Ndegwa, Managing Director, Guinness said; “Thierry Henry is an international icon of the highest calibre, we are proud to have him as an ambassador of our Made of Black Programme.”

“Henry carved his own path to bring his creative flair to the game, he worked hard to demonstrate his skill and ability; ultimately changing the way the game was played in England and showing that he was truly Made of Black. He is an inspirational ambassador for our Made of Black campaign.”

The high point of the event was the unveiling of Nigeria’s brand new Made of Black ambassador, Goodluck Obieze; an amputee footballer with an incredible passion for football.

As a child, Goodluck dreamed of playing football and leaving his village to be in the city and make it as a footballer. But his dream of becoming a footballer was put in jeopardy when he lost one of his legs in an accident. This didn’t stop him from following his dream. He came to Lagos where he found his team and he is now their captain.  He found his wife. He set up his own thriving keke napep business. And he found a life that he loves.

On selection of Goodluck Obieze as Made of Black ambassador, Adenike Adebola, Marketing Director Guinness  said, “Goodluck is truly Made of Black, a man who showed real determination to write his own rules and carve his own path in life. He has an incredible story which should inspire every Nigerian.  We have a number of projects in store this year working with Goodluck. We, at Guinness believe that football and people’s passion for the game can unite Nigerians to do incredible acts, and this is just one of the activities we will be doing this year – watch this space!”

The evening was rounded off with live music performances from the duo Small Doctor and Phyno, artists that have distinguished themselves by building enviable careers through sheer determination and hard work; attributes that personify the Made of Black Spirit.

Over the next year, Guinness will be celebrating and uniting passionate football fans and rewarding them through incredible football experiences that only Guinness can provide. This will include Fanzone activations for thousands of fans across the country with live football and music experiences.  In addition, Guinness will continue to sponsor EPL broadcasts through DSTV ensuring that all football fans can continue to follow their passion with friends and family over a cold Guinness in their homes or at their favourite bar.

Guinness embodies the Made of Black mindset.  It is an iconic beer that has the darkest liquid, but the brightest flavours.  A beer that has lived in the hearts and minds of millions in Africa and across the world for over 250 years but has always had the authenticity, boldness, and vision to do things differently.

The ‘Be A front Row Fan’ National Consumer Promo runs until January 31st, 2017, and will still be rewarding consumers who choose Guinness Foreign Extra Stout as their first drink in bars. Consumers will win One Million Naira (N1,000,000) , Five Thousand Naira (N5,000) and loads of airtime.
