2019: Atiku Declares Presidential Bid, Accuses Buhari Of Bloodshed

Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar has formally declared his intention to contest the 2019 presidential election under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The ex-VP stood before a cheering crowd during a mega rally of the PDP held at Ribadu Square, Yola the Adamawa State capital on Saturday, July 21, to make the declaration.

During the declaration, Atiku while addressing thousands of supporters berated the Buhari led government for its inability to tackle insecurity and unemployment in the country and promised to confront these challenges if elected.

While lamenting the large-scale killings that have touched many parts of the country in recent months before thousands packed at theb square, the former VP said President Muhammadu Buhari’s government would be remembered more for its bloodshed than any development it brought to citizens.

“Today, we are witnessing the most insecure atmosphere,” Mr Abubakar said of the killings largely blamed on herdsmen, bandits and militias, before promising to tackle them headlong if elected.

“More people died under APC than people killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

“Today, we have the highest unemployment rate in history of this country, more than one million of our youth are unemployed,” Mr Abubakar said, adding that the PDP would secure the country, ensure unity and security of life and property.

The former VP also hit Mr Buhari at one of his most vulnerable areas, saying “today, we are more divided than at any other time in Nigeria’s history.”

Ben Murray Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa east, Uche Secondus, PDP chairman, were some of the dignitaries present at the grand rally.

MI Abaga Breaks Silence On Choc Boiz Fall Out In New Video ‘Brother’ Featuring Nosa & Milli

MI Abaga Breaks Silence On Choc Boiz Fall Out In New Video ‘Brother’ Featuring Nosa & Milli

Chocolate City head honcho M.I. Abaga has released the visuals for ‘Brother‘ featuring Nosa and Mili – which was on his 2014 album, ‘The Chairman‘.

The rapper and record label executive, who took to his social media accounts to reveal this today, said that the video, which was shot in 2015, was never released because the message in the song was lost due to the fallout between him, Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz and Brymo.

In this video, the iconic rapper who seems to be paying respect to Jesse Jagz, Ice Prince, Milli and Brymo, appears to be in the mood to mend fences with the crew after they all went their separate ways.

He wrote“I shot a video for ‘Brother’ in 2015 and never put it out because so much about the spirit and the message of the song was lost in events that happened during that period.”

“Eventually in the fallout, I was accused of doing things I did not do, and vilified in the media without ever speaking up about it. Needless to say when I released the video I decided against releasing it.

“Because I am not a perfect person and have also wronged others, I have decided to forgive everyone and move past that moment in time.

“So here it is, years after it will even have any meaningful relevance, the video I created hoping that it will heal broken friendships and relationships.

“I guess ironically, it is even more meaningful now.”

Nigeria Qualify For U-20 AFCON After Beating Mauritania

The Flying Eagles on Saturday beat Mauritania 5-0 to qualify 6-1 aggregate for the 2019 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that in the match played at the Agege Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria’s Flying Eagles completely overwhelmed their opponents.

Nigeria were quick to take off from where they stopped a week ago in the first leg match of the fixture in Nouakchott which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Wasiu Alalade put them in front with a well-taken shot in the 15th minute and, after a flurry of missed chances, the national under-20 male football side doubled their lead.

This was through Nafizi Yahaya in the 33rd minute, who went on to complete his brace with a cool finish after being one-on-one with the visiting goalkeeper in first-half added time.

Aniekeme Okon scored the fourth goal in the 67th minute while the fifth goal came in the 90th minute through Afeez Aremu.

Ikouwem Udoh, Flying Eagles captain, later attributed the victory to hard work and the belief he and his teammates had in themselves that they could do the job.

The final competition is scheduled for Feb. 2 to Feb. 17.

‘270 Shops’ Destroyed, Properties Worth Millions Of Naira Lost As Fire Guts Jos Terminus Market

Over 270 shops were destroyed with properties worth millions of naira lost after the Terminus main market in Jos, Plateau state capital, was razed down by an inferno in the early hours of Saturday.

Confirming the incident, Adie Undie, Plateau State Police Commissioner, who said the fire started around 1:30am, added that the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.

“This incident happened around 1:30.a.m and our men and that of the Department of Fire Service responded promptly,” he said.

“The nature of the market really hindered the men of the fire service from accessing it with ease, but they did their best.

“My officers were able to cordon the arena and ensure hoodlums didn’t take undue advantage of the situation to loot.”

“Some of the things we have salvaged were secured at the police post. We are liaising with the chairman of the market so that we can identify those who suffered losses.”

Before the latest incident, the market, which is mostly populated by Igbo businessmen, was said to have been destroyed some years ago following a bomb explosion which was allegedly linked with the Boko Haram Islamic sect.

Meanwhile, in his part, the chairman of petty traders in the market, Mustafa Ibrahim, told newsmen that “about 217 temporary shops were burnt. Estimatedly, we have lost more than N70 million in the incident.”

“Leave The Other Room!” – Obasanjo Charges Nigerian Women To Fight For Political Rights

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has charged Nigerian women to fight for their political and economic rights instead of accepting to be confined to the other room.

The former president made this known when he spoke on the topic, ‘My understanding of women aspiration in business and politics’ at an event organised by Initiative for Information, Arts and Culture Development in Nigeria and The American Corner, Ibadan on Friday.

At the programme, which was held in support of women’s participation in government, political processes and the work place, Obasanjo said it was a huge shame that no woman was among the 50 people that drew the Nigerian constitution.

He said he encouraged women to join politics by ensuring that nine women were chosen to serve in his cabinet when he was the president.

According to him, “No longer should our women allow themselves to be consigned only to the ‘other room’ and the kitchen. In 2017, according to the United Nations, gender inequality cost Africa $95bn. That is a tremendous waste.

“We cannot continue heaping up waste and expect that we will not maintain our poor record of being the world’s poverty headquarters. The starting point is girl child education. Child marriage must be made unlawful.”

NYSC Tells Corps Members To Declare Health Status In Osun

The Osun State branch of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has pleaded with prospective graduates posted to the state for NYSC to declare their health status for better management.

NYSC: Batch ‘B’ PCMs Orientation Begins On July 24 | Checkout Locations Of All Camps In Nigeria

Mr Emmanuel Attah, the Osun State Coordinator of NYSC, made the appeal in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Osogbo, on the corps preparedness to accommodate and camp new set of graduates for the NYSC scheme.

He said that the Osun NYSC orientation camp, located at Ede, would be opened on Tuesday through to Wednesday for the graduates posted to the state to report and register.

He added that the camp would be closed for registration by Wednesday midnight for the 21 days orientation, while registered members would be sworn in as 2018 Batch B corps members on Thursday.

MUST READ: What You Should Know About NYSC Discharge Certificate, Exemption And Exclusion Letters

He, therefore, appealed to graduates coming for NYSC not to hide their health status and avoid coming to the camp with fake medical certificate of fitness to deceive NYSC officials.

Attah said “knowing their health status would help us to assist them properly.

“Their health condition would not stop them from serving their fatherland, but concealing their health condition would make it difficult for us to attend to them properly.

Barcelona Make Third Bid Of £55m To Chelsea For Willian

Featured Image

Barcelona have submitted a third offer of more than £55m for Chelsea’s winger Willian

Barcelona have identified Willian as their top transfer target this summer and have already had two bids rejected

The Spanish giants switched their attention to Willian after their move for Antoine Griezmann failed to come to fruition

The initial bid of £50m for the Brazilian international was rejected and they swiftly followed up with a second offer of £53m, both of which were rejected by Chelsea who are understood to value Willian at closer to £70m.

Willian has made 236 appearances for Chelsea since joining the club in 2013, where he notched 44 goals and 39 assists.

According to Sky Sports, Barcelona have now launched a third bid in the hopes of securing a deal, where talks are still ongoing between the two clubs and Willian’s representatives.

Manchester United, however, are prepared to offer €60m as manager Jose Mourinho eyes a reunion with the 29-year-old, according to Sport (via Sport Witness), but the Blues are likely to be resistant to allowing another one of their star players to move to a domestic rival.

Willian was determined to leave Stamford Bridge this summer should Antonio Conte had stayed at the club beyond the summer, with Barcelona understood to be his first choice, but the Blues are now hopeful that Sarri’s arrival can encourage him to stay.

Report: Atletico Madrid And Sporting Lisbon Close To Agreeing Compensation Deal For Gelson Martins Move

Featured Image

Portuguese club Sporting CP and Atletico Madrid are reportedly very close to settling on a deal for the transfer of Gelson Martins to the Spanish capital

Gelson Martins move to Los Rojiblancos has been held up by negotiations over compensation to Sporting CP

After a training pitch attack on the Sporting Lisbon players, a few names within the team have managed to successfully cancel their contracts with the club – meaning they can leave for free.

However Gelson won’t go to Spain for nothing and according to Portuguese outlet Record details, Atleti will have to pay at least €15m to the ‘selling’ club.

This is because Sporting Lisbon are doing everything they can to ensure they’re not completely taken advantage of. FIFA will intervene, and a collective consultation will take place between Sporting and Atleti to come to an agreement.

As it stands, it seems as though Gelson will make the move for the initial fee of €15m, plus €10m if variables (likely dependent on factors such as number of appearances, cup and league successes, and goals scored).

Jadon Sancho says he had a “point to prove” playing against former club Manchester City this morning.

Sancho left City as a 17-year-old in the summer of 2017 due to a lack of first-team opportunities to join Borussia Dortmund.

He impressed in Chicago as Dortmund beat City 1-0 in a pre-season game thanks to a penalty from Mario Gotze.

And he said afterwards: “It was nice to see my old team-mates. I am happy we won and just happy to play against my old club and I had a point to prove and I think I did well in the game. Hopefully it carries on through the season.

“I am very motivated for the season and very excited because we have a special team and I am very grateful for that.”

Antonio Conte To Sue Chelsea Football Club For Not Sacking Him Early Enough

Featured Image

Sacked Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will reportedly take legal action against former employers because of the amount of time it took to sack him.

Antonio Conte was finally sacked last week, 55 days after the Blues’ 2017-18 campaign ended with victory in the FA Cup final.

Chelsea stalled over their decision as Maurizio Sarri, the favoured candidate to succeed Conte at Stamford Bridge, was still technically under contract with Napoli.

Only after buying out Sarri’s contract could the Premier League giants push ahead with dismissing their manager of two years, and The Times claims that a court case may now be forthcoming.

Conte, already entitled to a £9m compensation package, is said to be ‘furious and disgusted’ that Chelsea waited nearly two months to make the call, which he believes cost him the chance to take up another job in the early weeks of the summer.

Alexis Sanchez Finally Able To Join Manchester United In United States For Pre-season

Featured Image

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has flown out to Los Angeles to join his team-mates on their pre-season tour of the United States.

Alexis Sanchez missed the opening game of the tour – a 1-1 draw with Mexican side Club America in Pheonix – after initially being denied a US visa.

The issue has now been resolved and manager Jose Mourinho is keen for Sanchez to play in United’s next game against San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday

“There’s no [Romelu] Lukaku or [Marcus] Rashford here and probably not even for the start of the Premier League, so it’s about when Alexis lands and when he lands, he has to play,” Mourinho said.

“He trained with us for five days before we departed to Los Angeles and we left one fitness coach behind with him to keep training with him. Of course, it’s individual training but when he arrives, he has to play”
