1  Forum / Politics / I Have Realized My Mistakes For Criticizing Jonathan – Ndume Expresses How Great He Was on: 29-11-2020 09:10 PM

The Senator representing Borno South Senatorial District, Ali Ndume, says he has known the value and landmark a former President, Goodluck Jonathan left in Nigeria and its political landscape after his tenure in office in 2015.
The lawmaker spoke on Saturday at Apo legislative quarters, Abuja, during the Grand Opening of Dr. PhysiQ Specialist Center for Wellness and Medical Lifestyle Change, and launching of a book titled: ‘Everything heals” authored by Dr. Susana Adams, the CEO of the Centre.

Ndume also stated that his recent detention at Kuje prison and subsequent release from the custody was the will of God, saying that “as God wants it, that I must be here, because I was just released from detention yesterday night (Friday), maybe God wants me to attend this occasion, otherwise, I would have been in Kuje prison up till now.”

Jonathan, who was the chairman of the occasion later inspected the new Wellness Centre, and was accompanied by the former of Minister of Information, Labaran Maku; the veteran journalist, Eugenia Abu, among other dignitaries.

Speaking before the inspection, the Borno Senator said other people who were skeptical about the ex-president’s behaviour have also realised how great he is, adding that many Nigerians don’t value what they have until they lose it.

The Borno Senator’s remark is coming a few days after the Chairman of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress, Mai Mala Buni, and some APC governors visited the ex-President.

The visit generated a lot of ripples between the ruling APC and the main opposition People’s Democratic Party.

“I must confess, as people call me stubborn person, I’m also a stubborn person… I feel I need to make this testimony here, and also appreciate Mr.(Former) President, as they say you will never know what you have until you lose it. I will stop there.

“For this country, I think Nigerians know that they don’t value what they have until they lose that thing. We thank God for your life and you have changed the political culture and landscape of this country.

“You don’t know how great you are in the eyes of those that were skeptical, those that don’t know you, those that didn’t come close to you. But now, honestly, I am one of those that used to criticize you very well, but I will say it was constructive move,” the lawmaker said.

Popular Nigerian afrobeats Queen, Tiwa Savage has slammed Journalist who criticized her “Celia” album and referred to her as a “struggling brand”.
Trouble started after the journalist, Motolani Alake, who works with Pulse NG wrote an opinionated article about Tiwa Savage’s “failing career” and posted it on Twitter.

The journalist wrote on Twitter, “In the wake of @TiwaSavage’s inclusion on @TIME’s list of the best albums of 2020 and the twitter storm she created, it feels like the right time for this opinion piece on her brand and the larger issue of ‘Mungo Parking’.”

In the article, Motolani described Tiwa’s recent inclusion in UK Time Magazine’s Best 10 Albums of 2020 as “Mungo Parking”, a term which means a feat achieved through “Paid promotion, misinformation and/or ignorance”.

Angered by the Editorial written by Motolani and published by Pulse, Tiwa Savage took to Twitter to call out the journalist and his media house.

She slammed Motolani by letting him know that his little son Jamal has made more money than him and the entire company he works for.

“you know how to diss out but you no fit take am when someone speaks up. Struggling brand ke. Even my son bagged more money than your whole company @OneMotolani @PulseNigeria247” she had tweeted.

Dragging him further, she reminded her of when he first came to interview her in her house and begged for a picture.
“Guy you came to my house to do interview then you asked for pictures. Bitch you are a fan. phyuk you @onemotolani ” Tiwa Savage tweeted as she continued to drag him.

Meanwhile, Nigerians on Twitter have also taken to the platform to react the whole saga. Check them out below;

7  Forum / Sports / Fans Accuse Judges Of Robbing Mike Tyson After Fight Against Roy Jones Jr on: 29-11-2020 04:27 PM

Boxing fans have expressed their displeasure at Mike Tyson being “robbed”, after the former heavyweight champion earned a draw against Roy Jones Jr in his highly-anticipated return to the ring.

‘Iron Mike’ rolled back the years with a fine performance against former four-weight champion Jones Jr.

The 54-year-old took the centre of the ring for most of the fight, putting Jones Jr on the back foot and landing punishing body shots throughout the contest.

However, the judges scored the contest a draw after eight rounds, with both fighters appearing satisfied with the outcome.

But some fans have questioned the verdict. Here are some of the opinions tweeted after the fight:

@NadimElHaddad1: Can’t believe they robbed Mike Tyson man. Boxing is so corrupt. I might be really done at this point

@Austin_CastleB: Absolute sh*t. Tyson was clearly in better shape, landed more punches, and was ready to fight 5 more rounds if he could have. He got robbed.

@iamsebjames: Mike Tyson was robbed… RJJ hugged him the whole time!

@tracysterling: Calling that fight a draw is the most 2020 thing ever.  #tysonvsjones

Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Erica has reacted after some housemates in Sierra Leone reality tv show, insisted they allegedly wanted to speak with Laycon and Ozo during their question and answer.

Currently, Kiddwaya and Erica are in Sierra Leone for a three days tour and they visited housemates in a Sierra Leone reality TV Show.

During the question and answer, one of the Sierra Leone housemate asked Erica about her family. While Erica was about to answer the question, Kiddwaya reportedly changed the question.

Kiddwaya changing the initially question, asked the housemates to choose which of the ex BBNaija housemates they want to speak to.

Some of the Sierra Leone housemates said they wanted to speak to Ozo, while others said they wanted to speak to Laycon.

Apparently, the situation felt awkward for Erica, who allegedly told Kiddwaya in front of the housemates that he was being rude since the initial question wasn’t directed to him.

However, Kiddwaya tried calling Laycon on the phone but said it was allegedly late in Nigeria time to call Laycon.

He also said governments of border countries of Chad, Niger and Cameroon Republic should work with the Nigerian government to address the lingering crisis in the region.

The governor lamented with regret the escalating killings perpetrated by armed insurgents in some parts of the state and assured that his administration will soon recruit additional Civilian Joint Task Force to complement efforts of the security operatives in the fight against Boko Haram.

Nigeria’s senior male national football team, the Super Eagles have moved down three places in latest November ranking published by FIFA Friday.
The Gernot Rohr led lads were ranked 32nd in the last global ranking released in October but following four unconvincing matches played between October and November 2020 in which the team could not win anyone, they have dropped down the rank and now ranked 35th in the world. The team, however, remained 3rd in Africa.
The Super Eagles dropped three spots to 35th in the world after they were held to back-to-back draws against a weaker opponent, Sierra Leone in this month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. Africa’s top five nations remain unchanged with Senegal the top team in the Confederation followed by Tunisia, Algeria, Nigeria and Morocco.
Nigeria’s Group L opponents in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Benin, Sierra Leone and Lesotho sit in the 83rd, 116th and 143rd positions respectively.
2022 World Cup qualifiers foes Cape Verde, Central African Republic and Liberia sit 81st, 114 and 152nd respectively. Elsewhere, the top six in the global rankings went unchanged with Belgium leading the way followed by France, Brazil, England, Portugal and Spain in that order. The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on 10 December 2020.

Arsenal have a number of injury and suspension concerns ahead of this match, with as many as 10 first-team players potentially missing.

Pepe is suspended for his headbutt on Ezgjan Alioski, while Gabriel Martinelli and Pablo Mari are definitely out.

Big summer signing Thomas Partey remains a fitness doubt and Arsenal are also sweating on the fitness of Willian, Bukayo Saka, Sead Kolasinac, David Luiz, Mohamed Elneny and Calum Chambers.

Should Nelson and Willian miss out, Reiss Nelson and Alexandre Lacazette are in contention to return to the side from last week's Elland Road stalemate.

As for the visitors, they are boosted by the return of club captain Conor Coady after his return from a period of self-isolation.

The England international's return may mean Nuno reverting to his favoured back-five system, with Nelson Semedo and Rayan Ait-Nouri operating in the wing-back positions.

Jonny Castro remains sidelined with a knee problem, meanwhile, and Romain Saiss recently tested positive for COVID-19.

Team News:

Lampard has confirmed that Christian Pulisic is now back in contention after a hamstring injury, leaving him with the rare luxury of a clean bill of health.

The winger may not be ready to start just yet, but Lampard does also have Kai Havertz available and he could make his first start since his positive COVID-19 diagnosis.

Indeed, there are difficult decisions to make all around, with the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Olivier Giroud also pushing for those forward places having all got themselves on the scoresheet recently.

Tammy Abraham can also count himself amongst that group as he attempts to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since September 2019; he has now scored 18 top-flight goals since the start of last season, which is twice as many as any other Chelsea player.

Amidst all that competition, perhaps the most crucial position of goalkeeper has now been nailed down, with Edouard Mendy keeping seven clean sheets in his 10 appearances for the club - although he did concede on his debut against Spurs.

Mendy will be coming up against arguably the league's two most in-form players as well.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Havertz, Kante, Mount; Ziyech, Abraham, Werner

Kane has averaged a goal or assist every 50 minutes so far this season, scoring seven and creating nine more, while Son has found the back of the net nine times himself and could become the first Tottenham player to reach double figures in 10 games since Gary Lineker in 1991-92.

Spurs have had two days fewer to prepare for this game than Chelsea have, and they also have more injury concerns with Toby Alderweireld missing due to a groin problem.

Davinson Sanchez played the full 90 minutes in midweek, suggesting that Joe Rodon could be handed his full Premier League debut in place of the Belgian.

Erik Lamela is also absent, but Mourinho is more hopeful over the fitness of Hugo Lloris, Giovani Lo Celso and Steven Bergwijn, all of whom are expected to be in contention.

Matt Doherty is also now back available despite missing out on Thursday, although Mourinho must decide whether the full-back is ready to play from the start after recovering from coronavirus.

Lloris; Doherty, Rodon, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Son, Ndombele, Bergwijn; Kane

Tottenham Hotspur form (all competitions): LWWWWW

Head To Head
For all of their good form this season, Tottenham's record at Stamford Bridge remains dreadful - just one win from their last 34 visits in any competition and only one clean sheet from the last 17.

Indeed, home or away Tottenham have only ever won seven of their 56 Premier League meetings with Chelsea, including defeats in each of their last three - more than they had suffered in their previous eight editions of this fixture.

Another victory for Chelsea would make for their best run against Spurs since March 2002, while it would also see Mourinho lose three consecutive league matches against the same manager or club for the first time in his illustrious career.

Indeed, Mourinho has failed to win any of his last five returns to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, since picking up a win on his first return with Inter Milan in 2010.

Prediction: Chelsea 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Fit-again Sergio Aguero could lead the line having scored nine goals in his last nine appearances against Burnley across all competitions, while Phil Foden will be hoping that his winner in Athens earns him another start.

The England international has now scored five goals and created two more in his 10 starts for club and country this season, yet has found himself out of favour in Premier League games recently.

Guardiola must also decide whether to stick with the 4-2-3-1 formation he used in midweek or to return to a 4-3-3.
