Why We Sold Philipe Coutinho-Klopp by sammynigeria [ m ] at 4:14PM on Jan 07, 2018

Why we sold Coutinho to Barcelona - Klopp Jan 7, 2018 9:32 AM
Coutinho makes 10 most expensive transfers of all-time list - FCNaija
Jurgen Klopp has revealed why they budged and sold Philippe Coutinho but insisted that Liverpool never wanted to allow the Brazilian leave and did everything possible to keep him.

The Reds agreed a deal to sell Coutinho to Barcelona for a staggering £145million on Saturday, and Klopp says they did all they could to prevent the move, but agreed, albeit reluctantly.

The 25-year old joined Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5m in 2013, but has now become the third most expensive footballer in history having signed a five-and-a-half-year deal at the Nou Camp.

Klopp said to Liverpool’s website: “It is with great reluctance that we — as a team and club — prepare to say farewell to a good friend, a wonderful person and a fantastic player in Philippe Coutinho.

“It is no secret that Philippe has wanted this move to happen since July, when Barcelona first made their interest known. Philippe was insistent with me, the owners and even his team-mates this was a move he was desperate to make happen.

"Despite that, we managed to keep the player here beyond the summer window, hoping that we would be able to persuade him to stay and be part of what we are looking to do.

“I can tell the Liverpool supporters that we, as a club, have done everything within our means to convince Philippe that remaining part of LFC was as attractive as moving to Spain, but he is 100 per cent certain his future — and that of his family — belongs at Barcelona. It is his dream and I am now convinced there is nothing left at our disposal to change his mind.”

Mikel Obi has not been in the face of football for few months now. Troubled with a lingering abdominal strain which he had surgery for.
This has caused his absence from three consecutive games for Tianjin TEDA FC.
The 30-year-old took to his Instagram to announce that he had undergone a successful surgery.

“Surgery went well, rehab next… can’t wait to be back shame I can’t be on the pitch fighting with my team,” he wrote alongside a photo of him in a hospital bed on Instagram.

Although there is no stipulated time for his return...

A Verse For The Vultures by sammynigeria [ m ] at 10:31AM on May 10, 2017

sammynigeria on Open9ja
Her fairest figure fondles
every mankind, from birth till death;
Her pelvis like a fertile ground
from which Jane and John sprang;
what offence is it to be the She?
This hearty gracile figure
is the joy of all nations.
Her stunning curves enthrals
the eyes of a Cursed Vulture
who defiled her vulnerability;
The same with the clergyman
who sold her innocence to matrimony,
and yet another, a malicious monarch
who mutilates her vitality.

I have words for you wife-beaters,
who made you head over
the woman you called second-class?
Who made you a driver
to the Eve you gave the back seat?
She is as the womb
that harbours your being before birth.

I have words for you dream shatterers,
this bread seller can be your breadwinner;
Be thankful, she made love and made you,
she fell in love and raised you,
she gave you Jane and John
this sex-mistress you deflowered
can be the only flower in your garden.

"If You Want To Lock The Gate Go Ahaed" UI-VC by sammynigeria [ m ] at 3:53PM on May 09, 2017

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan has said that the Students’ Union leaders could decide to lock the gate at will, emphasizing that it is their duration at school which is being affected and not the pay of the lecturers.

He said this at Trenchard Hall, on Monday, 8th May, 2017, while delivering his speech during the Students’ Union handing over ceremony.

The Vice Chancellor, having listened to the inaugural speech of the President, Ojo Aderemi, responded that “it is a good thing to talk tough” as a Union leader.

He emphasized that for about four consecutive sessions during his undergraduate days, the Union leaders had been rusticated.
The Vice Chancellor further made mention of a recent employability report, which placed the University of Ibadan as the 13th among other Universities, whose product secure job as soon as they complete their NYSC.

 He said that instead of students to equip themselves with the skills needed for the labour market, they would rather involve in fighting the University management.

He mentioned that the current academic session, according to the revised calendar, will not end until around Christmas, adding that any form of strike from the angle of students, will lead to its extension to the coming year.

“If you want to lock the gate, lock it now, these lecturers will continue to receive salary.

“There is no free lunch anywhere, not even in Freetown.

“I advise you look before leaping.

“Don’t think we are here to oppress you….we are partners in progress”, he said.

Alison-Madueke Breaks Silence On Corrupt Allegations

Former minister of petroleum resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, says every human being makes mistakes, but one error that can never be ascribed to her is stealing.
Accusing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of taking advantage of her silence, the ex-minister said she was prepared to face trial as long as due process is taken into consideration.
The commission has leveled many corruption allegations against her, but Alison-Madueke waved them aside, challenging the agency to provide “incontrovertible” evidence.
“I have up till now chosen to maintain my silence and not to respond to inaccurate press reporting. However, given the level of deliberate inaccuracies, I am now forced to respond because it is clear that the EFCC is taking advantage of my silence to try me by media and to convict me in the eyes of the public,” she said.
She described the anti-graft war of the current administration as a witch hunt, saying most of its targets have not been given a right to fair hearing.
Reacting to a recent Lagos court’s order that the former Minister forfeits to the federal government, the sum of $153 million, which she allegedly laundered in three banks, Diezani denied ownership of such amount of money, saying: “I wish to state that I cannot forfeit what was never mine.”

She also denied ownership of a N5.7bn mansion located on Margaret Thatcher Close, Asokoro, Abuja, which the EFCC seized in June but claimed it belong to Kola Aluko, a billionaire businessman, who is one of her allies.
The EFCC had in a report by Aljazeera noted that the items in the house included jewellery, furniture and a bulletproof gymnasium worth about $2m

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has disbursed a total of N93 million to 310 young entrepreneurs in the country under the Youth Entrepreneurship Development Programme (YEDP) of the apex bank. It will be recalled that CBN recently stated that it had set aside a total sum of N2.5 billion for members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) with good business ideas.
In a ceremony which took place in Abuja on Thursday, CBN in collaboration with Heritage Bank and NYSC scheme disbursed the funds worth N3 million to the young entrepreneurs.
In his speech, the CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, represented by the Deputy Governor (Corporate Services}, Alhaji Sulieman Barau, said that the programme was to ensure that the creative energies of the over 64 million Nigerian youths are harnessed to stimulate growth, address restiveness and promote economic development.
According to him, the programme was open to 18 to 35 years-old serving corps members, graduates or artisans. The Managing Director of the bank, Mr Ifie Sekibo, urged the CBN to expand the programme to accommodate more qualified youth entrepreneurs.
Reacting to the wonderful efforts, the NYSC Director-General, Brig. Gen. Sulaiman Kazaure, thanked the CBN for supporting efforts to empower the youths, adding that the launch of the YEDP would, among other things, create room for increasing the number of beneficiaries of the entrepreneurship training and venture prize competition to make a meaningful impact. Kazaure, however, urged the beneficiaries of the programme to remain focused and ensure that the loans are paid back to enable corps members to benefit from the loan facility...

President Muhammadu Buhari says he is not aware of of what his government exchanged with Boko Haram for the 21 abducted Chibok girls, adding that he would need to return from Germany to be fully briefed.

“This is what I don’t know until I go back. I said the release is on the morning I left and this is not something we will discuss on the telephone,” Mr. Buhari told German, Deutsche Welle shortly before leaving Germany.

Twenty of the over 200 Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram in 2014 were released on Thursday even as government officials said the administration did not give Boko Haram anything in return.

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, denied a report that the government released Boko Haram detainees for the girls.

“Please note that this is not a swap. It is a release,” Mr. Mohammed told reporters Thursday... culled from GreensNews

NYSC Broke Again? by sammynigeria [ m ] at 7:46AM on Oct 10, 2016

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Directorate Headquarters, Abuja, has in an internal memo sent to a univeristy indicated that their might be reduction in the number of graduates to be mobilised due to lack of funds.

In a an internal memo sent to all heads of departments of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University NYSC indicated that the number of graduates that will be mobilised for next phase of mobilisation will be reduced. The internal memo dated 4th October, 2016 was signed by Mrs Ifeoma Egboka, office of the Dean of Students Affairs. The memo explained that the slash was as a result of “tight budgetary allocation of the Scheme”. It therefore asked the HODs to “work out the percentage of the number 894 (total) for each department”, as against the initial 2,314.This development may not be unconnected with the economic recession as it will be noted that the media and publicity director, NYSC, confirmed that the organisation was in need of funds. Aderibigbe said that the N10, 500, as budgeted by the government for corp members’ kits, was no longer enough.
“This year for instance, since the Federal Government does not want a situation where youths who are done with tertiary education hang out longer than necessary before having their chance to serve, we were given 260, 000 corps members to mobilise,” she said.

“It should be noted that once the federal government gives us the figure to mobilise for a particular year, they back it up with funds to take care of that number.

“We are in need of a lot of funds to ease our operations, but we will continue to cry to the government until the situation improves.”

It will be recalled that in May, the 2016 Batch A Stream 2 was nearly stalled due to lack of funds... culled from the Greenblog
