59 Groups Loyal To Buhari Endorse Atiku For President

Some groups loyal to President Muhammadu Buhari have dumped the president and endorsed former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar for Nigeria’s highest position in the 2019 general election.

The groups — 59 of them — explained that they took the decision because “the government we put in place has failed and continues to fail our people and we cannot continue to reinforce failure”.

The Punch quoted Yusuf Ardo, the National Coordinator, Grassroots Mobilisers for Buhari, as saying that the group is not impressed with the Buhari Administration for failing to appoint youths into his government.

He noted that the nation’s economy, which was rated as the fastest growing economy in Africa, had become comatose under the Buhari government, stressing that the administration had shown that it was clueless.

His words: “Today, our country is faced with legions of challenges, our economy that was the fastest growing in Africa has become comatose under the present government which has shown that it was unprepared and completely clueless. We believe under Atiku, our economy will be revived and returned to the path of progress.”

Also speaking, the Coordinator, Legend Youth Mobilisers, Abdulazeez Zubair, stated that the hardship in the country informed their decision to withdraw support for Buhari.

“I am a student of Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano, things are very tight in the country. My father could no longer support my education on account of the economic downturn in the country. We decided to support Atiku because we believe he can do better,” he stated.

360HAWT: Slimfeez Ft. Baseone – Kiddin Me

Featured Image
GTS is thrilled to announce a new single by rapper, Slimfeez, after what seemed like an unending hiatus. The lyricist made the most of his time away from the center stage to serve us Kiddin Me which features Aquila record’s own, Baseone.

On the record, the rapper of the Omo Fedra fame, proved he has not lost any ounce of his vocal dexterity, punch lines and lyrical prowess that made him one to be reckoned with.

Previously he has scored a number of hits which included the monster record, Omo Fedra off his debut EP of the same title, which enjoyed massive airplay around the country, thus cementing his position on the Rap scene.

Kiddin Me is a record on which The Rap Jesus sets the record straight. He says he has come to stay in the industry for good.

It is quite tough to get a foothold in the industry but Slimfeez strongly believes the industry needs him. True to his assertion, he is the shining light and reference for hard core rap.

The record is surely a joint that will be loved Rap purist and hip hop heads, because the lyricist clearly ticked all the boxes with this one.

The track is jointly produced by Pido and resident ace producer, UK based Bayozmuzik who has a stellar career working with some of the best act out of the UK and Nigeria.

‘Scores Killed’ As Violence Erupts In Cross River Communities

‘Scores Killed’ As Violence Erupts In Cross River Communities

Quite a number of people have been reportedly killed in a fresh outbreak of violence in Baise local government area of Cross River state.

TheCable reports that the violence, which was a result of land dispute, is between indigenes of Urugbam, Egbor, Ipene, and Abanwan communities in Baise and has been ongoing for many years.

A resident of one the communities, who spoke with the news outlet on the condition of anonymity, alleged that a community sold plots of land to an individual without seeking the consent of neighbouring communities who have stake in the land.

“I need help. My village has been wiped out completely. As I am talking now, more than 100 people are shot, lying down and nobody to help them,” he said.

“I have called every place, nobody wants to hear me. Yesterday, they came and beheaded three people. Today, they have come with a power force, dressed with fake army uniform.

“My community and one community are having landed problem. One other man who came to buy the land from Anambra state is the root cause of everything. They call him Africa Stone. The land that belongs to three communities. Now the three communities in that place jointly contributed the palm trees there and continue to harvest the palms since 1992.

“Only for this year, one smaller community went and sold the land to African Stone. Now African stone begin to harvest and stop the rest of the communities from harvesting and begin to cause them misunderstanding. I went there to mediate in March and I got machete cut on my heads. I went there again in July and my car was shot at.

“We continue making efforts for government to intervene. Government came and said they ere fixing an inquiry. The deputy governor gave them one month to present the report. The report of the panel just came back Monday last week. It is that report that has instigated all the crisis. We were the owners of the land.

“The result of the panel, because the deputy governor called me and told me, is that the African Stone should vacate from that place. This man was hiring ammunition and mercenaries to kill innocent people.  They came and unleashed mayhem. Many people are in the bush.  Let the government do anything to rescue them.”

Another resident accused security agencies of failing to respond when they were reached.

“Almost 24hrs after the crisis was reported to the Nigerian Army HQ, the government of Cross River state, and police authority, yet no military/security response, presence or action,” he said in an email sent to TheCable.

“So far, countless people have been confirmed killed – some beheaded and their heads were taken away.

“Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army 14 Brigade in Ohafia, Abia state, is just about 10 minutes drive from the troubled location in Biase LGA of Cross River state, and I am sure they must have been hearing the gunshots going on there. Thousands of vulnerable aged men and women, children and others stranded and hiding in bushes and by the riversides urgently need help. This is really disappointing, to say the least.”

Manchester United Don’t Need A Miracle To Finish Top Four – Jose Mourinho

Featured Image

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has backtracked on his claims that The Red Devils will need a miracle to qualify for the Champions League

Manchester United stuttered to a 2-2 draw at struggling Southampton on Saturday and even found themselves trailing 2-0 at one point, only rescuing a point thanks to Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera.

It was the third successive Premier League game United had failed to win, leaving them a massive 16 points behind rivals and League leaders Manchester City.

The result also left them trailing the Champions League spots by eight points and, in a post-match interview, Mourinho reportedly told Brazilian broadcaster RedeTV that it would be a “miracle” if they qualified for Europe’s elite competition.

Now he has now distanced himself from those remarks and hopes to close in on the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal – United face the latter at Old Trafford on Wednesday – by the end of the month.

“I don’t know if I say or if I didn’t, but if I used that word it’s not what I feel at all,” he told reporters in his pre-match news conference on Tuesday.

“We have eight or nine points from fourth, something like that, I don’t think we need a miracle at all.

“We need a good run of results, not [to] waste points we shouldn’t waste. Last week, before the Crystal Palace game, I told my hopes and targets were [that at the] end of December to be in that position [the top four]. The target changed, but in the sense let’s try to close the distance best we can and be very close to these positions.

“I think far from a miracle, we just need to not be so unlucky with problems that we have, we need some players to perform better than they are. We need to perform better as a team, but far from a miracle.”

United head into Wednesday’s game seventh in the table, and while he remains confident they will finish the season further up the table, Mourinho highlighted the fact there are six major clubs fighting for four Champions League spots.

When asked if United should never be as low as seventh, he replied: “I think Manchester United, seventh place, I can agree.

“The investment Everton made was phenomenal and obviously there was a great improvement in that team from last season in relation to this, but I don’t think Everton will be in front of Manchester United at the end of the season.

“There are six teams that should stay in the first six positions, season after season two of these teams are staying outside the top four. For example, last season it was Arsenal and Chelsea, and this season two of these six are going to stay outside.

“Who is the best team of the six, the team with more potential, less potential? Who is the team performing not so well? These will be the questions and answers. At the end of the season, the top six will be done by the six teams we all know have that responsibility to finish in the top six.”

Luka Modric Reveals How Zinedine Zidane Inspired Him To Win The Ballon d’Or

Featured Image

Luka Modric has credited his former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane with giving him the confidence to fulfil his potential and win the Ballon d’Or.

Modric was crowned the world’s best player on Monday, ending the 10-year stranglehold of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on the prize.

The Croatia midfielder Modric revealed a meeting with Zinedine Zidane shortly after his arrival in the job in 2016 was key to his surge to the top of world football.

“Here is something I will never forget: When Zinedine Zidane became Real Madrid coach, he called me into his office after training,” Modric told France Football. “He told me how he was seeing me as a player and what he was expecting from me.

“He said I was a very important player for him. And he said that he saw me as a Ballon d’Or winner one day.

“When someone like Zidane, with his personality and his career, says that to you, it gives you a lot of confidence.

“I admired him and I respected him a lot when he was a player.

“He saw me as someone like him, calm and a bit shy. He wanted me to open myself more. He made me a very important piece of the team when the team was playing very well.

“These words from Zidane helped me to go further on the pitch.”

Tottenham Fan Who Threw Banana Peel At Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Avoids Racism Charge

Featured Image

The Tottenham fan who threw a banana peel onto the pitch at the Emirates Stadium as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrated scoring a penalty in front of Tottenham fans will not be charged with a racist offence.

Averof Panteli — a 57-year-old grandfather — will face a charge of throwing a missile after police judged it not to be a racially aggravated offence.

Panteli — who says he will plead guilty to the charge when he is in court on December 18 — has also been informed by Tottenham he will be banned from their games for life.

“The police were happy to say it was not racism,” he told ‘The Sun’.

“I phoned Tottenham to apologise and they said they would be getting in touch with me to ban me for life.”

Panteli, who says his only previous brush with the authorities was when he ran onto the Spurs pitch aged 14 and was ejected from the stadium, said he had been irked by Aubameyang celebrating in front of the Tottenham fans.

The Gabonese star’s spot-kick gave Arsenal an early lead and the ‘Gunners’ eventually ran out 4-2 winners.

“I am not racist whatsoever,” said Panteli.

“I am actually a Greek Cypriot. I am 100 percent not a racist. I swear on my kids’ lives that I am not that kind of guy.

“The Arsenal player was gloating in front of the away fans. He came up towards the away fans about 10 metres away and he is basically nodding his head and clapping at us.

“Without thinking, I picked up this banana skin from the ground and threw it on the edge of the pitch.

“I didn’t throw it at the players. It was just on the edge of the pitch.

“I am not condoning what I did and I regret it already.”

Athletic Bilbao Sack Manager Eduardo Berizzo After Just One Win In Fourteen Games

Athletic Bilbao have sacked manager Eduardo Berizzo after presiding over just a single win in his 14 LaLiga games

Eduardo Berizzo was given a one-year deal by Athletic Bilbao in May, replacing Jose Angel Ziganda, but things have not gone to plan for the Argentinian coach.

Athletic played 14 league games with Berizzo in charge, but have not won since the opening day of the campaign against Leganes and sit third from bottom, three points adrift of safety.

Along with Real Madrid and Barcelona, Athletic are one of just three clubs to have never been relegated from LaLiga, but they face a real struggle in ensuring that historic run continues beyond the current campaign.

Among their most damaging result this term was the 3-1 home defeat to bitter local rivals Real Sociedad at the start of October.

Monday’s 3-0 loss at Levante proved the final straw, with Berizzo being relieved of his duties for the second time in under a year, after he was sacked by Sevilla last December.

Athletic have appointed Gaizka Garitano – the club’s reserve team coach – as Berizzo’s successor.

Captain Marvel is a prequel of sorts. It’s not an origin story, but it does take place years before the events of Iron Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk, and Thor.

The movie is due out March 8 in the US and UK and March 7 in Australia, about two months before Avengers 4 hits.

Watch the trailer below:

Adekunle Gold Inspired By Cassper Nyovest – Talks About Terra Kulture Event

With barely a few days to his three-night event at Terra Kulture, popular singer, Adekunle Gold, has expressed mixed feelings about his upcoming gig.

(Watch Live Broadcast): Jay-Z, Beyonce, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Femi Kuti, Others Perform At 2018 Global Citizen Festival

The singer will be thrilling fans at the iconic cultural centre in Lagos State from December 13 to 15.

While admitting that it has not been easy putting together three shows in three nights, Gold noted that “I feel like I am where I was made for”.

He also had some nice words for Cassper Nyovest, who he said inspired him during his performance at the Global Citizen Festival in South Africa.

TheCable quoted him as saying:

“I spent 12hrs in a South African stadium watching South Africans cheer everyone on. I loved every single performance but Jesus, Cassper took me by surprise.

“This guy had just sold out the stadium the day before and could still command that audience and that reception like they had never seen him before.

“No lie, I’m still shook. Totally inspirational. Phenomenal would be an understatement.

“I remember thinking, “Lord, I want that” and I also remembered “I have that” I don’t take for granted a single day I step on a stage and I hear my name being chanted or my words being sang back to me.

“It’s not an ego boost. It’s a purpose boost for me. I feel like I am where I was made for.  Two places in the world I am most comfortable, in bed and on stage.”

He said he was unsure of his ability to pull through his role in the film after he saw the veteran actress in her full element on set, while playing the role of Eniola Salami.

His words: “So, yeah, I took up the challenge and my first day on set, I saw aunty Sola Sobowale in her full element. It was my birthday and Olamide was waiting for me at a night club but I had to shoot some scenes.”

“So, I saw her in her full element and I told Kemi I can’t do this. She asked why I said look at this woman na, I can’t do this. This woman is in another world, I don’t want to mess up, I can’t do this. But Kemi convinced me and said she believed I can do it and I went back home and returned to give my best like you all saw in the movie”.

 “I wasn’t so sure I could do it because I had so much going on at that time but Kemi Adetiba was able to convince me and this took about eight months. Though there were a lot of other names flying around but she said no, that she wanted Reminisce to do this.”

Sierra Leone Disqualified From 2019 AFCON Qualifiers

Sierra Leone have been disqualified from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign because of government interference in the country’s football association.

Football’s world governing body FIFA had suspended the Sierra Leone Football Association in October due to “government interference”.

CAF also said that all Sierra Leone’s matches during the qualifying campaign are now “annulled.”

Here’s Why CAF Stripped Cameroon Of Africa Cup Of Nations Hosting Rights

The new development, according to a statement issued on Monday by the Confederation of African Football, means Kenya and Ghana will qualify for next year’s Nations Cup finals from Group F.

“The CAF Executive Committee at its meeting on Friday, 30 November 2018 in Accra decided on the case of Sierra Leone in the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

“Sierra Leone is disqualified from the qualifiers and all its matches are annulled,” CAF said in a statement on its official website on Monday.

The row stems from the decision of Sierra Leone’s anti-corruption commission to sack SLFA president Isha Johansen and general secretary Christopher Kamara during an ongoing probe into corruption and mismanagement.

In October, CAF cancelled two matches pitting Sierra Leone against Ghana due to the dispute between Freetown and FIFA.

Meanwhile, CAF is set to find a new AFCON 2019 hosts after stripping the hosting rights from Cameroon last weekend due poor preparation.

Cesar Azpilicueta has signed a new four-year deal at Chelsea, committing his future to the club until 2022.

Azpilicueta joined Chelsea in 2012 and has since won two Premier League titles, two domestic cups and the Europa League crown.

Dj Martin Solveig Apologises For Asking Ballon d’Or Winner Ada Hegerberg If She Knew How To Twerk

Featured Image

Host DJ Martin Solveig apologised to Women’s Ballon d’Or winner Ada Hegerberg for asking her after she collected her award if she knew “how to twerk”.,

Solveig, 42, said Ada Hegerberg – who answered “no” – had told him after the ceremony she “understood it was a joke”.

Hegerberg also reportedly told BBC Sport she “didn’t consider it sexual harassment”.

Solveig was playing music throughout the ceremony, and also danced with Hegerberg to Frank Sinatra.

During the presentation of her award, he asked her: “Do you know how to twerk?” She responded: “No.”

Hegerberg, who had just made a speech talking about her hopes of inspiring girls to believe in themselves, appeared unhappy at the question, sparking the reaction on social media.

Apologies to anyone who may have been offended,” Dj Martin Solveig wrote on Twitter. “This was a joke, probably a bad one, and I want to apologise.”

In a video message, he added: “I am a little bit amazed as to what I am reading on the internet. I, of course, didn’t want to offend anyone.

“This comes from a distortion of my English level and my English culture level, which is obviously not enough because I didn’t mean to offend anyone and didn’t know this could be seen as such an offence.

“Especially if you consider the sequence in total, when we ended up dancing to Frank Sinatra.”
