ex Super Eagles Player Wins ‘Best Coach Award’ in Holland

Anthony Joshua’s nose ‘not broken’ – doctor

A doctor in the camp of Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua (AJ) confirmed that the Nigerian-born British heavyweight boxer’s nose is not actually broken.

The news came as relieve for Joshua who initially feared that his nose felt broken following the headbutts in the second round of his victory over Carlos Takam in Cardiff on Saturday night.

Takam’s forehead crunched against the nose of the Briton and Joshua struggled to maintain a poker face as his eyes began watering.

“With the old headbutt, you don’t see it coming,” Joshua said in the post-fight press conference. “It’s harder than a punch because it’s bone on bone. But everyone did a good job in the corner and controlled the bleeding.

“It was just getting through that round, because the referee doesn’t give you [time]. You really want 10 minutes, just to get yourself together and clean yourself up.

“But it’s an experience, it happens in a fight. I had to make sure I didn’t take a silly shot because it was ready to start gushing with blood but they managed it in the corner.”

Joshua’s camp is targeting three fights in 2018 but the 28-year-old admitted that his first priority was having his nose cracked back into place.

Fortunately for the 20-0 champion, though, a doctor’s examination in his dressing room at the Principality Stadium confirmed some positive news for Joshua as his nose isn’t actually broken.

“It’s really sore,” Joshua said after the dressing room doctor confirmed the positive new to him that the nose is not actually broken.

“Nah, it’s just swollen right now. The doctor checked it, no stress, it’s just really sore.”

The names mentioned as next potential opponents for ‘AJ’ were WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and the currently sidelined Tyson Fury.

And while those three certainly represent the biggest fights for Joshua, the London 2012 gold medalist admitted that he may well be forced into another mandatory defence before he looks at unifying his division.

“My next few fights might be mandatories because they’re obligations I have to fill. I’m just focusing keeping belts by any means,” Joshua said.

The Intelligence of A Miser

By Chibuike Nkemakolam

I grew up to love Arsenal as a football club that had one of the best players Nigeria has ever produced (Kanu Nwankwo). The North London club was undoubtedly one of the best clubs in England, with their style of play, accolades, worthiness and otherwise.

The club in the late 90s and early 2000 grew by leaps and bounds. They featured the most talented and sought after players in the world then. This gave them slots in the Champions League competition every season. Their coach, Arsene Wenger, who transferred from a Japanese league club in 1996 became a household name and an epitome of coaching around the world shortly after his arrival. With all empirical facts, he’s regarded as one of the best coaches in the history of the club even without sampling opinions.

The feats gave the club and her followers what could be described as a pre-conceptional mindset, that no club would over-run them, hence they started settling for want-away, out of contract and meager players.

Now that the world most inclined sports have changed phase, many clubs are splashing out monies to sign or to acquire trending players that could add values to their clubs and as well give them values to their monies in returns. A reputable club like Arsenal shouldn’t be left out in such phase.
It has become an intensively and competitively battles in the transfer market nowadays, that players are either bought for COMMERCIAL VALUES or OUTFIELD PERFORMANCES.

Arsenal as a club has lost its flares due to non-committal investment in players. The club’s policy might be responsible to this because Arsenal is still one of the richest clubs in the world today. There are just quite a few clubs in Europe that make more money than Arsenal do. Their MERCHANDISE remains one of the costliest in the world. They have one of the best stadia in terms of beauty, facilities, and capacity in England and Europe; yet they spend little in buying players, but expectedly to come on top of other clubs that spent ten folds farther than them. The blame might not be far from their coach too. In the recent time, I have seen where Wenger criticised some players, whom he thought were acquired in the astronomical range of prices, but never knew that it could reach to his turn to splash out the MISERLY fund he’s been saving to the detriment of the club and their fans.
I’m not saying this as an UNREPENTANT PENSIONER or a rival but, as a lover of the most exciting game in the world, who grew up to know Arsenal as a top and world class club.

I’m of the opinion that the GLORY and the DIGNITY of the club should be restored for the benefit of competitiveness, respect, history, loyalty and otherwise.

What exactly prompted me to put up this piece was because of the transfer record bid Arsenal made on French and Monaco FC player, Thomas Lemar. The whopping £92M sum that was lately quashed could have been an English club record transfer fee and second in the world. Prior to the bid, I never knew that Arsenal would make such a bigger offer on a player, whereas they would have gotten this same player if there were more efforts earlier on. Also, the same amount could have added more names to their shirts. They waited until after their 4 nil humiliation by Liverpool and the exodus of their few player.

Lest we forget, our gains and loyalty to our individual clubs boil down to their good performances. Our direct or indirect supports is one of the contributing factors to the growth of our clubs. Therefore, our respective clubs and their shareholders should commit more to our joys. It isn’t all about taking the dividends without reinvesting.
ARSENAL as a club should get back on track.

Respect to all my Arsenal football club fans/brothers/friends/sisters.

What The Super Eagles Need Now After the Demolition of Cameroon – Mascot Uzor Kalu

 

A prominent Investment Banker and Former Chief of Staff to the Abia State Governor, Chief Mascot Uzor Kalu has congratulated all Nigerians and the members of the Super Eagles team on their recent performance. According to him – ‘’Soccer remains a strong unifying factor and helps to build bridges in the face of the challenging times that the nation is going through.’’ He commended the teamwork, focus and dedication to duty as displayed by the boys on match day. Also, Chief Mascot Uzor Kalu charged the boys to keep pressing for greater heights as the quest to clinch the sole world cup ticket in the group has not yet been fully accomplished.

In a similar vein, he has tasked all youths in the country to keep looking for ways to bring solutions to the problems that we face as a nation. This renowned philanthropist cum businessman believes that the solution to the challenges that the country faces lies within us. As part of his commitment to encourage the young ones, he has consistently stressed that there are many avenues that can help in making our society a better place. Besides Sports, there are opportunities in business, politics, commerce and other mind building initiatives. He tasked everyone to keep praying for the leaders of the Country and for the wellbeing of Nigeria.

His clarion call resonates with the timeless message that John F. Kennedy gave to the American people at a very intriguing moment of history. It says ‘’… do not ask what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country…’’The developed nations of the world have been able to pull resources to build the nation of their dreams. With the signs that are in the horizon for Nigeria, he believes that we can build the nation that we desire with a concerted effort by everyone.

Also, Chief Mascot Uzor Kalu used the opportunity to thank all well-meaning citizens of Nigeria for their continued commitment to live together in peace and unity. He said that there is no nation which is not faced with their peculiar challenges. One of the beauties of nationhood is our ability to look for ways to resolve our differences. He charged all the leaders at every sector to keep working for the best interest of the people that they serve. This is due to the burdens that the Nigerian people face which he believes can be resolved when every leader rises up to act in a pragmatic way.

Another important message that he has passed to everyone is that we must be committed to rise beyond the call of duty. Nigeria is at a point where it will require extra effort on the part of all stakeholders to lift us to very lofty heights. He related this to the passion exemplified by the players in the Super Eagles team. They have been able to dominate a group that was hitherto termed ‘’Group of Death’’ by working hard to deliver the expected results. He charged other Sportsmen and women to keep raising the flag of the nation at every event in which they participate.

One of the end points of everyone taking responsibility for the growth of the nation is that Nigeria will take its rightful place in the Community of nations.

Cameroon vs Nigeria: Buhari reacts to 1-1 draw in Yaounde

​President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerians to celebrate the Super Eagles, following their 1-1 draw with Cameroon, in a 2018 World Cup qualifying game on Monday in Yaounde.

Buhari posted a picture of himself watching the game on TV and tweeted: “Let’s celebrate our Super Eagles, holding Cameroon to a draw in Yaoundé. The march to #Russia2018 continues, and they have all our support!”

The Eagles survived early pressure, before they took the lead through Simon Moses, who lashed in on a loose ball.

Nigeria squandered several chances to double the lead, before goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa fouled Djoum Arnaud inside the area.

The referee pointed to the spot and Vincent Aboubacar kept his nerves to make it 1-1 with 15 minutes left.

The result sees the Eagles remain top of Group with 10 points, while Zambia who play Algeria on Tuesday are second with four points.

“Its Uyo, Not Calabar; Akwa Ibom, Not Cross River” – Akwa Ibomites Protest

On September 1st, 2017, a rather interesting match was played at the Nest of Champions, Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions. Fortunately, Nigeria thrashed the Lions with a four goals to nil score line. The country has since been in high spirits. However, the immediate hosts of the match, the good people of Akwa Ibom state, are hurting.

The match, like all events of such magnitude, was reported on National TV. NTA however, had it that the match was played in Calabar, Cross River State – a rather egregious error for a national TV station. And this little mistake is the reason why Akwa Ibomites are hurting: the fact that Uyo was elided for Calabar, or that Uyo was subsumed under Calabar.

This obvious mistake seems quite a trifle for an entire people to pine over, and it’s definitely something that can be overlooked. But it seems that it has become a norm; at least it has become so commonplace as to be carried on national TV! Since Akwa Ibom was created from Cross River state thirty years ago, and given the relative cultural uniformity of both states, it seems that in the minds of people, Akwa Ibom is yet to exist. So, a lot of people just say Calabar (the capital city of Cross River), when they mean to say Uyo (the capital city of Akwa Ibom). An NTA scrollbar advert during yesterday’s news even said that the match was played in Calabar. But IT’S UYO, NOT CALABAR; IT’S AKWA IBOM, NOT CROSS RIVER.

Even though the people of Akwa Ibom very readily identify with those of Cross River, it is outrageous to see Akwa Ibom through the eyes of Cross River, to put it that way. It’s a slight on the pride of Akwa Ibomites as a socio-political unit.

A state that is 30 years old is not a small state. And even if age doesn’t count, solid personal achievements cannot be ignored.
Akwa Ibom has recorded the following achievements and must be given her pride of place amongst other states:

· The 1914 Amalgamation Declaration was done in the present-day Ikot Abasi Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State. Nigeria began to exist as a single, even if incoherent, political entity from Akwa Ibom. We have Sir Fredrick Lord Lugard’s residence here, which should have, by now, become a national tourist attraction.

· The famous women’s riot of 1929 which lead to a micro-war against taxation in the entire south eastern region began in Ikot Abasi. The panel that sat thereafter to investigate the matter only did so in Aba. But till today, that riot is still fallaciously referred to as the Aba Women’s Riot.
· Akwa Ibom produced Nigeria’s first Central Bank Governor – Clement ISONG.

· Akwa Ibom produced one of Nigeria’s first legal luminaries – Justice Udo UDOMA, first Chief Justice of Kenya.

· Akwa Ibom produced Nigeria’s first Nigerian WWE Boxing Champion – Samuel OKON Peter.

· Akwa Ibom has produced the likes of INI Edo, IME Bishop, Emem ISONG, etc., who are contributing their quota to make Nigeria a country to reckon with in the global movie sphere.

· Akwa Ibom has one of the first Prelates of the Methodist Church – Bishop Sunday MBANG.

· In literature, Akwa Ibom has produced Uwem AKPAN, Anietie ISONG, etc., whose works have won laurels.

· And to add to all these, Akwa Ibom is also the number one producer of oil in the nation
And, for a lot of those who do not know, the Efik people of Calabar migrated from the now Uruan Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom.

Till today, whenever the Obong of Calabar dies, it is an Uruan man that crowns another. The Efik people as we know them today are ethnic children, more or less, of the Ibibio people of Akwa Ibom state.

The essence of this campaign is not to spread bile between these two sister tribes. It is just to set records straight. Indeed, as it is said, you bale the water while it is still at the knees. If such a scandalizing error can be made on national TV, the water has indeed come to the ankle. Every people have the right to self-assertion. Surely any well-meaning Nigerian can understand that, especially looking at our multi-lingual, multi-ethnic nation.

We want Nigerians and indeed the entire world to know that there is Uyo, just as there is Calabar, and that there is Akwa Ibom, just as there is Cross River. We are Akwa Ibomites, not Cross Riverians, and this needs to register in every mind!

We are of the opinion, that NTA should tender an apology to the Akwa Ibom people and we’ve gone ahead to create a petition to that regard. Sign the petition here, if you share in our opinion>> https:///gdK45i

Join the campaign: #UyoNotCalabar; #AkwaIbomNotCrossRiver. It might not bother you today, but someday it might.
