Philippe Coutinho’s Move To Barcelona, Bad For Premier League- Eden Hazard

Featured Image

Eden Hazard has described Philippe Coutinho as a “fantastic player” and believes that the playmaker’s move from Liverpool to Barcelona is bad news for the Premier League.

Philippe Coutinho was sold to Barcelona for £146m after a lengthy pursuit which dates back to last summer, making the Brazilian the second-most expensive player in history.

Chelsea ace Hazard has talked up the talents of Coutinho, who he has come up against numerous times, and insists that the division is now worse off after losing one of the world’s top performers.

“It’s good for him, bad for the Premier League because he’s one of the best players in the league,” Sky Sports News quotes him as saying.

“He’s a good guy we play against each other a couple of times – he’s a fantastic player. He chose to move to Barca, it’s not a bad choice to be fair. I just want him to be one of the best players in the world and to enjoy what he can do.”

Liverpool Had No Other Option Than To Sell Philippe Coutinho- Jurgen Klopp

Featured Image

Jurgen Klopp Believes that “there was no other option” than to sanction Philippe Coutinho’s transfer to Barcelona.

The long-running saga between Liverpool and Barcelona finally came to an end earlier this week as the two sides agreed on a big-money deal, worth £106m upfront and a further £36m in realistic add-ons.

Klopp tried his best to keep Coutinho at Anfield, having rejected three bids during the summer, but the German claims that it was too tough to deny the playmaker his “dream” move.

Speaking to reporters on Friday afternoon, Klopp also stressed that Liverpool will not rush to bring in any direct replacements.

“There was no other option. If there is somebody maybe who should be angry, massively disappointed, in this case, then it could be the manager of the club the player is leaving,” he said.

“But I am not [angry], because I know we tried absolutely everything to convince Phil to stay here and carry on going together with us. It was his dream [to move to Barca] and it is the truth when I say he left Liverpool for only one club and we really had to accept that.

“The club was fighting until the last second and tried everything. It would have been very difficult if we had said, which we could have done, ‘look, here is your contract and you have to stay here’, and to use him in the second half of the season.

“We don’t have to replace him. What we have to do is we have to step up. We played fantastic football without Phil. I don’t want to sound disrespectful because I really liked him but we only have to carry on. We had fantastic games with him and not that good games with him. We have open eyes through this transfer window but we will not make crazy things. We want ‘right’ before ‘expensive’.”

Antonio Conte Believes “Everything Is Possible” Concerning His Future At Chelsea

Featured Image

Antonio Conte says he is happy to stay at Chelsea but added “everything is possible” regarding his Stamford Bridge future.

Reports in Italy have linked Juventus boss Max Allegri and Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri with the job at Stamford Bridge, but Antonio Conte maintains it is up to the club to decide his future.

“I have another year of (my) contract with this club,” Conte said. “But as you know very well everything is possible. In one moment you stay here, in another moment another person replaces you in your job.”

Asked if he would extend his contract with Chelsea, Conte added: “In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away.”

He added: “For the manager of this club it’s normal to have this type of situation, also if you won last season the league and you reached the final in the FA Cup. This is the history of this club for the manager.

“I have a lot of experience to deal with this type of situation. (But) there is something strange if, after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me for another coach. I think in other clubs this doesn’t happen.”

Football is very difficult to stay at a club for many years, especially in England, before managers were in charge for many years, but now in England they are happy to sack the manager early.

“We are talking about staying in Chelsea and the history of Chelsea is very clear, it’s normal that the press speak about Chelsea.”

Signing Cenk Tosun Midway Through The Season Is A Risk- Sam Allardyce

Featured Image

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has confessed that they are taking a “risk” by spending big on striker Cenk Tosun midway through the Premier League season.

Everton brought in the 26-year-old from Besiktas a week ago to bolster their faltering attack, parting with around £27m to get a deal over the line.

Having seen a number of players stutter after moving to a new country in the past, however, Everton boss Allardyce concedes that throwing Turkey international Tosun straight into the mix is a gamble of sorts.

“It is not easy at all, it might not work,” he told reporters. “It is a massive problem in terms of you are hoping rather than being guaranteed he hits the ground running.

“When you look at the number of players who have been brought into this country from abroad – even in the summer – and not worked, particularly up front, it is a risk.”

Duped Of N1.2Billion, Wilson Oruma Suffers Emotional Disorder As Ex-Teammates Rally Support

Featured Image

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oruma, is said to have suffered a relapse of the emotional disorder that bugged him six years ago after he was reportedly defrauded by an unknown pastor and some fake oil businessmen.

CompleteSportsNigeria reports that the midfielder, who once dragged the number 10 position with Austin Jay Jay Okocha while playing for Super Eagles of Nigeria, is  now broke and a shadow of himself.

Oruma, who has since yesterday made the headlines, after suffering a mental relapse of some sort, was said to have been lured into a fake oil business in December 2012 in which he invested a whopping sum of N1.2billion without proper consultation after he retired from football.‎

Unfortunately for the Golden Eaglets’ 1993 FIFA U-17 World Cup winning captain, he lost all his money to the investment.

“Wilson (Oruma) hasn’t really recovered from the emotional disorder which he suffered after he was duped,” his bossom friend Emakpor Dibofun told newsmen.

“He has been to several places in search of a lasting solution, but it gets worse after a bit of improvement.”

Meanwhile, a former Nigeria international and former Chairman of Lagos State Football Association, Waidi Akanni, has revealed that plans are underway by his former teammates to help resuscitate him to normal life.

He said: “We have contacted some of his colleagues whom he played with during his days at the national team and there have been positive news regarding what we are trying to do.”

“But nothing more I can discuss publicly just yet, but he needs help.”

“We just pray all goes well, so we can help him out of this precarious situation.”

Oruma featured for RC Lens, Nancy, Samsunspor, Nimes, Servette, Sochaux, Marseille and Guingamp, and Kavala FC of Greece before he retired at the age of 33 on November 26, 2010.

The midfield maestro also featured for Nigeria’s U-17, U-23 and the senior national team winning the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 1993, the Olympic gold in 1996 and two bronze medals at the African Cup of Nations in 2002 and 2006.

Featured Image

The Presidency on Friday disclosed that the health of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf, who was admitted into Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, on December 26, 2017 following injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, has improved remarkably and he is ready to be discharged.

Buhari’s Son, Yusuf, Sustains Head Injury, Broken Limb In Ghastly Powerbike Accident

This is contained in a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, made available to pressmen.

Adesina said this quoting a statement dated January 12, 2018 and issued by the Medical Director of the Hospital, Dr. Felix Ogedegbe on Yusuf’s improved health and imminent discharge.

He was, however, not specific on the exact day Yusuf will be discharged.

He reproduced Ogedegbe’s statement which also denied media reports that the President’s wife, Aisha, also suffered shock and was treated at the hospital.

Yusuf Buhari recovers after bike accident, ready for dischargeSee statement below:

“Mr. Yusuf Muhammadu Buhari, son of His Excellency President Buhari, was admitted into Cedarcrest Hospitals Abuja in the late hours of the 26th of December 2017, following injuries sustained as a rider of a motorcycle. Following initial stabilization, he was taken into intensive care. He underwent successful emergency surgical operations the following morning carried out by our team of neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons.

“Over the following week, his condition improved remarkably and he was transferred from intensive care to the ward. He has remained stable ever since and has continued to make remarkable progress. He is now ready to be discharged.

“His extremely speedy response to treatment so far is testimony to the world-class early care he has received here in Cedarcrest, Abuja. We are grateful to His Excellency, President Buhari and Her Excellency the First Lady Mrs. Aisha Buhari for the confidence in us and for allowing us to look after Yusuf. This show of confidence goes a long way to strengthen our collective belief in our resolve to offer world-class health care locally. We are extremely grateful to our entire hospital team for their dedication and hard work during this period.

“We are also grateful to the Honorable Minister of Health, the Honorable Minister of State for Health, and the eminent advisory team of specialists assembled by the Honorable Minister of Health who supported us in the course of looking after Yusuf. We are grateful to all Nigerians who prayed for Yusuf, his family and his carers. His response to treatment so far is clear testimony to answered prayers.

“We did note some very misleading reports about this incident making the rounds in some social media outlets. Most of them would not ordinarily need to be responded to. Suffice to say that there was only one person involved in this incident. No one else required treatment for this incident or its aftermath. Yusuf’s friend was not involved in the accident and did not sustain any injuries whatsoever.

“Her Excellency the First Lady was not at any time treated for shock and she was not admitted into Cedarcrest at any time. In addition, Cedarcrest Hospitals has remained open to other in-patients and out-patients and at no time were any patients denied access to the hospital.”

Lagos Okays Sale Of LAKE Rice In Supermarkets, Malls

Featured Image

In an attempt to ensure even and fair distribution of LAKE Rice product to the nooks and crannies of Lagos following high demand, the State Government has extended the sale of the product to supermarkets and shopping malls in the state.

The state Commissioner for Agriculture, Mr. Oluwatoyin Suarau, who held a meeting with representatives of shopping malls and supermarkets, said the state government extended participation to the high-end markets to ensure wider distribution and availability of the product.

He noted that the ultimate goal of the state government was to stop importation of rice and ensure that only locally produced rice was consumed by residents.

“Our LAKE Rice is of good quality. The major difference between LAKE Rice and imported rice is that the imported rice has a minimum of five to six years storage lifespan, but LAKE Rice is fresh and wholesome,” he added.

Also speaking, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Food Security, Mr. Ganiyu Okanlawon, disclosed that the government would go into a Memorandum of Understanding with the stakeholders of supermarkets to ensure that the product was not be adulterated, or passed off in another brand’s name.

He said the government had put in place various measures to protect the product and avoid adulteration so that the aim of the government in the even distribution of the product would not be defeated.

Okanlawon added that the government had constituted a committee which would monitor the product in the market.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Dr. Olayiwole Onasanya, said the state would maintain the original price of N12,000 for 50kg and N6,000 for 25kg, but would offer commission to shopping malls and supermarkets to sell at the approved price and still make their gains.

Iniesta: Coutinho Cannot Make Me Retire At Barcelona

Featured Image

Andres Iniesta insists that club record signing, Philippe Coutinho is not at the club to displace him, but to make the club better.

Barcelona acquired the Brazil international midfielder , smashing their summer transfer for the acquisition of Dembele.

And there have been talks that Coutinho was signed to replace Iniesta.

Iniesta told Onda Cero on Coutinho’s arrival in Catalunya:  “I’m a player for this club and I’ve always said that only the best can play for this club.

“That makes Coutinho one of the best. He’s young and he has an innate talent, while Barcelona are a club where he can keep growing.

“There will never be a player that can make me retire or kick me out of here. At 33 years of age, that isn’t the issue. Coutinho has come here to improve us.

“I’m happy that he’s one of the best players in his position. He has the things that we like.

“He’s a quick and skilful player, who links up very well, uses both feet very well, creates goals and scores them.

“He’ll find a very good environment to grow here. The money we paid for him is another thing.

“The price of the market decides what a player is worth. Beyond the madness, we must be happy that he’s ours.”

Neymar Shouldn’t Have Left Barcelona- Ronaldo De Lima

Featured Image

Ronaldo has claimed that Neymar took “a step back” by quitting Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Neymar was made the world’s most expensive player when pushing through a shock £198m transfer in August

The 25-year-old has been in inspired form for the Parisians since making the move, scoring 20 goals in all competitions so far, but Ronaldo has questioned his compatriot’s decision to leave Camp Nou in the first place.

“Sportingly, the decision is a step back,” he told Zico in a YouTube interview. “But there are challenges that everyone seeks. I played in Barcelona at the time and went to Inter when the Italian championship was much more competitive.”

Ryan Giggs yet to hold down a permanent managerial position since retiring in 2014, is understood to be one of three names in the frame to succeed Chris Coleman.

Herdsmen Killing: Benue Residents Mourn As 73 Victims Were Given Mass Burial

Featured Image

Thousands of residents stricken by emotion in Benue State remained mournful on Thursday as bodies of the victims of the Fulani herdsmen attack of January 1 and 2 on some parts of the state were given mass burial.

Prior to the mass burial that was organised by the State Government, thousands of people had trooped out as early as 6 a.m. to the IBB Square to participate in the highly emotional requiem mass.

Benue Attacks: “Withdraw Anti-Open Grazing Law” – Fulani Group Gives Condition For Peace

The bodies were driven round Makurdi metropolis in a motorcade in five trailers and six ambulances to the square for a funeral mass which started about noon and ended at 3:30p.m., while interment took place about 4:15p.m.

Social and economic activities were also grounded as the 73 people killed by the herdsmen in Guma and Logo local government areas were buried amidst tears and wailings by relatives and sympathisers.

It was gathered that government offices, commercial banks, markets and schools were closed in Makurdi, the state capital, in observance of the workfree day earlier declared by the state government in honour of the victims.

Some of the residents also expressed worries over the incessant attacks on farmers in the state and said that the acts were unhealthy for an agrarian state like Benue.

The state governor Samuel Ortom, who had declared three days of mourning for the victims, also lamented that the state was looking forward to a better year of hope after the herdsmen invaded and murdered in cold blood pregnant women, children and the elderly.

He said the state lost 73 persons to the attack, with many others sustaining various degree of injuries.

“For several years these attackers have turned our beautiful and endowed land into their killing fields and the main reason has been the clashes between herdsmen and farmers, but these attacks have intensified with alarming devastation since 2011,” he said.

He disclosed that since the attacks started in 2011, 13 out of the 23 local government areas in the state had borne the onslaught of the cattle herders, adding that several lives had been lost over the years. Ishaku, Lalong Disagree

Two Governors Disagree:

During the event of the mass burial, the governors of two neighbouring states – Darius Ishaku (Taraba) and Simon Lalong (Plateau) – held divergent views on the propriety of the Anti-Open Grazing Law enacted in Benue and Taraba States.

While the Plateau governor is feeling vindicated by the gruesome killings in State by herdsmen, saying that he had forewarned Ortom against enacting the law, the Taraba governor is of the opinion that the state’s anti-open grazing law was not targeted at any ethnic group or religious group.

Lawmaker Tackles Adesina:

The Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Air Force, Hon. Samson Okwu (PDP, Benue), has asked the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, to apologise to Nigerians for saying more people were killed during former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

Okwu, representing Oju/Obi federal constituency of the state, who spoke in Abuja, said the unending killings were as a result of failure of the Buhari administration.

He said: “During Jonathan’s administration these killings were not spread in the country as witnessed now. The insecurity was only in some parts of the North- East and North-Central but now there’s Enugu massacre, Edo massacre, Rivers massacre and then Benue. “I think Mr. Femi Adesina should apologise to the people of Benue and Nigerians instead of blaming their failure on President Goodluck Jonathan.”

We Won’t Reverse Decision To Sack 22,000 Teachers – El-Rufai Insists

Featured Image

Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has insisted that there is no amount of resistance that will make his government rescind its decision to sack over 21,780 teachers.

Buhari Endorses El-Rufai’s Plan To Sack 21,780 Teachers In Kaduna

His statement is coming on the back of a protest by the state chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) on Thursday, coupled with the industrial action held by the state chapter of the Nigerian Union of Teacher (NUT) due to the sack.

The government has also been served with backlash from some Nigerians since its decision to fire the teachers said to have failed a competency test it organised.

Kaduna To Employ 25,000 New Teachers After 21,780 Others Failed “Primary 4 Exam”

However, while speaking on a Channels TV programme on Thursday night, the governor said there is no going back on the sack.

He said: “We have already taken second, third and fourth looks at this situation. We have studied what previous governments have tried to do and there is no going back.”

“I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that we are not going to reverse our decision; these teachers are gone, we are going to employ new teachers.”

“The process of testing and interviewing the 25,000 teachers we are hiring to replace the 21,780 that we have fired is on and we are going to go ahead with it.”

The governor added that the state decided to take the step because “it is the children of poor that go to public schools.” and so, “we are committed to ensuring that they get decent public education as I got it when I was growing up in Daudawa in Katsina state.”

“I went to a public school and I got decent education. I was orphaned at the age of eight but I got free, basic education and that is why I am where I am,” he added.

“I intend, at whatever price, at whatever cost to bequeath that to children of ordinary people in Kaduna state. There is no going back.”

PDP Reacts:

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had on Wednesday in a statement also accused the state government of insensitivity over the sack of about 22,000 teachers, 4, 000 local government employees, 3000 state workers and traditional rulers.

Kaduna Replies PDP:

However, Alhaji Saidu Adamu, the Counsellor on Information and Communication to the Kaduna State Governor dismissed the claim today in Kaduna, insisting the claims of the PDP was baseless as the state government has embarked on “massive employment ever seen in the history of the state since independence.’’

Adamu said: “Right from Nigeria’s independence, I want to believe that this is the first time Kaduna state government is making massive employment in our history.

“In one agency, KASTELA, the state government had employed over 2,600 personnel and we have already secured permission to employ additional 1,700 soon.”

“We are currently doing same is various agencies, including KADIPA and KADGIS among other agencies in the state.’’

On the 22,000 teachers sacked by the government, Adamu said the administration would replace them with 25, 000 qualified ones.

“The teachers sacked have no business in the classroom,’’ he stressed, adding that the government was focused on laying a solid foundation at the primary level for children of the poor to acquire sound education.

“By sanitizing our primary schools, children of the poor would acquire the right education that would add value to their lives and the society and become something worthwhile in the future.

“No any sensible government will allow the way things are going in the education sector to continue.

“A situation where a primary school teacher and graduate of geography can’t even spell geography correctly, and you expect the government to allow such person to continue teaching, is not possible.

“It is high time to change the situation and we have screened those who applied for teaching jobs to get suitable replacements.

“We are also going to conduct physical and oral tests to confirm that we have the right persons, we want to have functional and qualified teachers in our schools.

“I want to also assure that what Kaduna state governor is doing is the best that any right-thinking leader should do.

“We have been left behind and we contributed to what is happening to us right now because the previous administrations did not care about the future of poor people.“

Yusuf Buhari As A Metaphor For Nigeria’s Health Sector

Yusuf Buhari As A Metaphor For Nigeria’s Health Sector – Niran Adedokun

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

Last weekend, some national dailies reported the appreciation of the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, to the medical personnel tending to the needs of her son, Yusuf, who was involved in a bike accident last month.

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.

The letter, which came alongside reports that the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, was at the head of the medical team treating the young man was the first credible information on the first son’s state of health since the unfortunate incident a little over two weeks ago. It gladdens the heart to hear that the young man is responding to treatment and gives hope that Nigeria could at least handle a case with the delicacy of the one at hand.

But that letter and the revelation of the role being played by the health minister communicated an unpleasant message that has continued to plague the mind.

Bike Accident: Presidency Denies Flying Yusuf Buhari To Germany For Treatment

Adewole, Nigeria’s health minister for more than 24 months, can hardly lay claim to any significant impact on the country’s health sector. As a matter of fact, on more than one occasion in the year that just ended, various medical unions, including the Nigerian Medical Association, which he belongs to, raised questions about his effectiveness in office. An umbrella body of health workers actually called for his removal!

And for me, that this same minister would head the team of doctors attending to the President’s son testifies to the widespread corruption of values and the communal indignity that permeates our political landscape. I will explain.

On the website of the Federal Ministry of Health where Adewole is honcho, there is a list of 44 tertiary health facilities comprising 20 teaching hospitals and 24 federal medical centres, a number of which should have been able to handle the condition upon which the health minister sits on a team of experts in a private hospital! But these medical institutions have remained that only in name. Two years ago, it was widely reported that budgetary allocations to all these facilities were dwarfed  by the provision made for a sole facility known as the Aso Rock Clinic, so they have remained mere skeletons of the ideal.

The other repulsive thing about Adewole’s headship of this team is that it gives him away as a mere busybody who abandons his primary responsibility to attend to the needs of Yusuf Buhari- because of whom the latter’s father is.

This is the thing that worries me about public officials in Nigeria. Very few of them have a sense of loyalty to the state they serve. The Minister of Health sure imagines that he is in that office to serve the pleasure of the President, but that is very far from the truth. It would be totally understandable if the personal physician of the President had taken charge of the medical situation of his principal’s son.

Although the state also picks up the bills of this personal physician, he is specifically employed to attend to the medical needs of the President and his family. As a result, being in charge of the immediate health needs of any member of the family would neither cost the nation more nor bear any tone of absurdity.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the health minister. In his own case, his allegiance should be to the Nigerian people such that he is responsible for the health needs of 160 million Nigerians. On the day he was sworn in as minister, Adewole became a father of all Nigerian children such that if he chooses to sit at the head of the medical team of the President’s son, every other Nigerian child should get the same measure of attention.

Buhari’s Son, Yusuf, Sustains Head Injury, Broken Limb In Ghastly Powerbike Accident

But such attention should not even be necessary if this man had stood up to the duty of driving innovative policies that would give every Nigerian parent confidence that they or their children would get proper medical care whenever they need it. In conjunction with the President, state health commissioners and the larger National Health Council, the minister should drive policies to improve access to affordable and quality healthcare and save Nigerians from avoidable deaths.

The question to ask Adewole is what will be his legacy when he eventually leaves office as he sure will, some day? Nigerians still eulogise the late Prof. Olikoye Ransome-Kuti for his dogged pursuit of the entrenchment of Primary Health Care; what recollection will Nigerians hold of Adewole when he leaves?

What has happened to the implementation of the National Health Bill, 2014 for example? How much has been achieved with the penetration of the National Health Insurance Scheme and the expansion of the programme to include ordinary Nigerians, what are the plans of his ministry to improve Nigerians’ access to health information as an important ingredient for preventive care?

Another important issue is the welfare and conditions of service for medical personnel in the country. Just two months back, Chairman of the Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr Olumuyiwa Odusote, raised the alarm about the exodus of doctors from Nigeria.

According to him, while more than 40,000 of the 75,000 registered Nigerian doctors, practise abroad, 70 per cent of those in-country are actively seeking more profitable outlets.

Odusote put out such alarming figures that have not been contradicted by any other authority to the effect that 100 doctors resigned from the services of the University College Hospital, Ibadan, in 2017 while about 800 doctors left their jobs in Lagos State hospitals in the last two years! The implication for this, he explained, is that the average new patient in Nigeria needs to wait for two weeks to see a doctor. That is a period within which a lot of cases would be beyond redemption.

Now, the emigration of these doctors and medical personnel is not just due to insufficient wages but also about the parlous and tedious conditions of work. While the rest of the world, including countries like India and South Africa, parade first class medical equipment that aid diagnostics and treatment, Nigeria relishes in obsolesce. One dangerous effect of this is that negligence and errors, which largely go unpunished, have become a regular occurrence in the health sector.

Another problem, which one expected the minister to tackle, is the impossible position young doctors who desire to become specialists find themselves towards enlisting for residency programmes. Even as we speak, without the recommendation of some high up in government, most Nigerian doctors are unable to get into any of the teaching hospitals to actualise their dreams. You then wonder whether Nigeria is thinking about the future of medical practice!

There is also the abominable rivalry among different professions in the health sector. It is true that this has gone on for long and may never end, but it is something that a minister of health with the interest of the country should endeavour to tackle and minimise in the interest of the public good.

These and so many other challenges, which stand between Nigeria and a reasonable health system, are what authorities in the health sector should face instead of the abandonment of duties and eye-service that the self-imposed assignment under discussion represent.

It should be said at this juncture, however, that this intervention is not about any bad blood for Yusuf. What the Buhari’s currently experience is one which no parents deserve and I, like millions of other Nigerians, sure have them in our prayers and look forward to the young Yusuf getting on his feet again.

But this is about political appointees living to the demands of their offices and specifically about delivering an enviable health system where no child would need a father or mother in some high place before they receive quality care. It is about engendering a Nigeria where medical personnel practise with satisfaction, where brain drain would be a thing of the past and where we can save the millions of dollars that Nigerians expend on medial tourism annually. That would be the change.

Another Nationwide Blackout Looms As Explosion Hits Escravos Gas Pipeline Again

Featured Image

There might be blackout in some parts of the country following the fresh explosion that has rocked the Escravos-to-Lagos (ELP) located in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region, barely four days after repairs, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation said on Thursday.

It is understood that this has led to a drop in the generation of power from hydropower plants by 494 megawatts in six days.

It was gathered that a heavy explosion rocked the pipeline criss-crossing the Ugbokodo community near the Warri refinery in Okpe Local Government Area of Delta State.

It was also learnt that the explosion was as a result of leaks from a gas pipeline in the community, which had earlier been reported to the management of the NGC.

However, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said that repairs have commenced immediately on the facility in order to address the fresh incident.

The commission did not state what caused the fresh explosion on the pipeline.

“Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, has directed that repair works should be executed immediately on the Escarvos to Lagos Pipeline,” NNPC spokesman Ndu Ughamadu said.

Ughamadu added that while the NNPC aim to restore gas supplies through the ELP on time, gas supply from other sources like Oben, Oredo, Sapele, Ughelli and Utorogu would be stepped up to augment any shortfalls in supply to power plants.

Based on information gathered, should the ELP be shut for a long period, it may disrupt oil production as companies may find it difficult to evacuate gas produced along with oil.

Benue Attacks: “Withdraw Anti-Open Grazing Law” – Fulani Group Gives Condition For Peace

Featured Image

A Fulani socio-cultural organisation, the Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria (GAFDAN), has given what seems to be like a hint that will likely put an end to the conflicts between farmers and herders in Benue State and other states.

“If You Have Juju, Use It On Them (Herdsmen), Protect Your People” – Fayose Tells Ekiti Hunters

According to the group, the government of Nigeria has “from time immemorial” relegated the Fulani herdsmen to the background where they have never been allowed to exercise any right in the country like other citizens.

Consequently, the cattle rustlers are left with no other option that to fight back the prolonged neglect and injustice, the group added.

The Nation also quoted the National Secretary General of GAFDAN Alhaji Saleh Bayeri as calling for the abrogation of the Anti-Open grazing Bill on Thursday, January 11, 2018.

His words: “There has been so much hatred against the Fulani by other Nigerians over the years and successive governments never cared to see to the challenges facing the Fulanis in this country, we have been pushed to the wall and the only option we have is to fight back, especially as states are beginning to enact laws to further strangulate the only means of livelihood of the Fulani herdsmen in the country”

“The reason for the problem is obvious. The Fulani in this country are facing the toughest challenge of their lives, a kind of challenge that makes you to choose between life and death; they are facing serious economic depression.

“Historically, the herdsmen and their business have been neglected o by the people and government of Nigeria. It is therefore natural that for people that feel oppressed to want to fight back or resist oppression. As far back as I can remember, from 1970 till date, there has been no single government policy geared towards assisting herdsmen in any way.

“Naturally, the government should know that the Fulani that keep multiplying in human population and their animal, should know that they need a space to occupy and carry out their legitimate business. The Fulani are not being allowed any space in Nigeria and government does not seem to care, so they have to fight back.

“There was the issue of grazing reserve, about 413 grazing reserves in gazette. Out of that number, you can’t count up to 20 that are functional. But farmers enjoy and keep enjoying all sorts of assistance from the federal government through the same ministry for agriculture. Government does not really care when it comes to the issue of herders.”

On the Benue killings, he said: “We expected the federal government to move in and stop the enforcement on this anti-open grazing law in Benue State, but since government does not care on any issue affecting the Fulani man, the governor was allowed to enforce the law and we can now see the consequences

“From the last check, it was reported that over 70 people have been killed in Benue State in attempt to enforce an unjust law of anti-open grazing. People should ask the governor, is the enforcement of any law worth the lives of over 70 of his people. Has that law succeeded?”

His suggested solution is that “the Benue State governor should withdrew the anti-open grazing law he enacted last year, let him look at Benue State as home for all irrespective of ethnic or religious affiliation. The governor should be reminded that he swore to protect and defend the lives of all citizens of Benue State not minding their tribe, religion or political background.”

Hierro: Madrid Must Be Calm And Not Sack Zidane

Featured Image
Former Real Madrid captain, Fernando Hierro has urged the club to maintain calm and hold on to Zidane.
Madrid performed in the 2016-17 season, winning the La Liga and successfully defending the UCL.
They capped that with the Club World Cup, Spanish Super cup and UCL Super Cup. However, they have struggled this season.
And their recent 2-2 draw against Numancia at home, has prompted Zidane to call his contract useless.
But Hierro has called for calm in the Spanish capital and urged the club not to rush any decisions.
"We have to be sensible," Hierro told EFE .
"We are in January and it is the same coach and almost the same players who won eight titles in the last two years.

"Real Madrid means that you have to win every game, being second is not worth it.
"However, we have to be calm and use good sense.
"One gets used to winning everything, but when that isn't the case, it's not a good enough reason to want him out
"We have to be smart in our judgment because they are the same players, the same trainer and the same philosophy," he added.
