FIFA Issues Life Ban For Ghana Football Boss Over Corruption

One of African football’s most powerful figures has been banned from the sport for life for breaking bribery and corruption rules.
Ex-Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi also broke conflict of interest rules, FIFA said, BBC Sport reports. Football’s world governing body launched an investigation after Nyantakyi was pictured taking $65,000 from an undercover reporter.
FIFA fined Nyantakyi 500,000 Swiss francs (£390,000). Nyantakyi was also vice-president of the Confederation of African Football and a member of the FIFA Council.
He stepped down as GFA president in June after film of him allegedly accepting a “cash gift” was made public. The film was captured by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and BBC Africa’s investigations unit, Africa Eye, received exclusive access to the footage.
Nyantakyi later resigned his CAF and FIFA posts but claimed the footage had been doctored to falsely incriminate him. The adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s ethics committee said the ban for life applied to “all football-related activities at both national and international level”.
According to a FIFA statement, Mr Nyantakyi was notified on Tuesday about the ban. This brings to an end the career of the man considered as the most successful GFA president in the history of Ghana football.
Nyantakyi reigned as GFA president for 13 years and helped Ghana’s Black Stars to qualify for three successive FIFA World Cups (2006, 2010 and 2014).
He rose through the ranks to become the Vice President of the Confederation of African Football. He was highly tipped to take over from current CAF president Ahmad Ahmad in the near future.
Nyantakyi was initially suspended on June 8 for 90 days by the adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s independent Ethics Committee. The ban was later extended for an additional 45 days on September 6.

Angry Onazi Blast Super Eagles Boss Gernot Rohr For Doing This To Him

Trabzonspor of Turkey midfielder, Ogenyi Eddy Onazi has thrown a dig at Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr.
Onazi said he will show his talent to those who didn’t give him the chance to play at the World Cup.
Onazi, who was kept on the bench by Rohr during the World Cup, played on another level in his team’s 1-1 draw against Antalyaspor in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday.

He was also the joint top dribbler, along with Antalyaspor’s Dogukan Sinik with four take-ons.
In an obvious dig at Gernot Rohr, Onazi criticized the German for not handing him playing time at this summer’s World Cup.
The former Lazio midfielder has also been omitted from the latest Nigeria list announced on Monday for no good reason.
”I’ll show my quality and talents to those who didn’t give me the chance to play in the World Cup,” Onazi told the Turkish press.

According to the German, the China-based midfielder has “taken a sabbatical from international football.”

Real Madrid Stars Want Zidane Back As Coach After Julen Lopetegui’s Sack

Real Madrid stars have reportedly voiced out their desire to have Zinedine Zidane as coach after Lopetegui was sacked.
Real Madrid stars have voiced their preference to re-appoint Zinedine Zidane as manager, according to reports.
The Frenchman quit the Bernabeu in the summer after winning a consecutive treble of Champions League titles.
Los Blancos are scrambling to find a permanent boss after giving Julen Lopetegui the axe following Sunday’s 5-1 thrashing against Barcelona.
Antonio Conte was lined up but player power has prevented president Florentino Perez from appointing the ex-Chelsea manager.
The players believe Conte’s presence would further disrupt a fractious dressing room.
Instead the Real Madrid stars are pining for club legend Zidane to make a sensational return, reports the Mirror.
Zidane is highly regarded among the players after delivering four pieces of major silverware in three seasons.
The 46-year-old cited a need for change when he handed in his shock resignation.
But if Real Madrid fail to appoint No1 target Mauricio Pochettino, then they could be forced to offer the club legend a lucrative deal.
Spanish Football Federation laws claim that La Liga clubs have two weeks before they have to appoint a permanent manager.
Poch is a favourite of Perez’s and the Argentine’s latest comments suggest the Spurs boss could consider leaving for the Bernabeu.
Before Monday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.
He said:-
“The season so far, it’s strange because my feeling is the worst feeling I’ve had in the five years that I’ve been here.
“It’s the worst, my feeling. But it’s the best start ever for the club in the Premier League. It’s strange, no?”

Our Focus On How To Create Jobs, Not On How To Dance Shaku Shaku – Peter Obi Replies Osinbajo

The running mate to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has mentioned that the country’s leaders should be more focused on moving the nation forward and not learning how to dance Shaku Shaku.
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had said he is learning the dance step ahead of the 2019 general election.
Speaking with journalists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe airport in Abuja upon his arrival from Dubai on Monday, Obi said the Atiku team is spending its time thinking of how to create jobs and not learning how to dance Shaku Shaku.
“I have not had the opportunity of reading his comments as I haven’t seen the dailies. I know Vice-President Osibanjo is a gentleman and may not have made such a comment,” Obi said.
“However, while I am not against people dancing or learning how to dance ‘Shaku Shaku’, as I believe it is one of those things that is keeping our people going on in this very difficult times, I believe that the crossroads that we have found ourselves in as a nation requires sober reflection.
“For me in particular, this period calls for sober reflection not dancing or learning how to dance as there are many challenges facing our nation at the moment.
Not the least being recently having our country named the world headquarters of extreme poverty with over eighty-seven million people. Worse still millions more are losing their jobs, with four million by the third quarter of this year alone.
“Millions of Nigerians go to bed hungry not knowing where the meal for the next day will come from, hundreds of thousands risk death by crossing the Sahara and the Mediterranean Sea to wherever they can make a living.
“These and other challenges are indicative of the dire straits facing us as a nation today.
And these are what we on the Atiku team are spending our time with the best minds on how to start creating jobs and putting food on people’s table.
We must get Nigeria to start working again for the good of everyone.”

REVEALED!! Antonio Conte Turned Down Madrid Job To Await Mourinho’s Sack At Man United

Former Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte does not want to move to Real Madrid because he wants to takeover at Manchester United.
This is according to Italian journalist, Govanni Guardala, who claimed that although Real Madrid are tempting the former Juventus boss, he wants a move to Man United.
Real Madrid confirmed yesterday that the club has agreed to terminate the contract of head coach, Julen Lopetegui, after just 14 games in charge of the club.
Lopetegui was temporarily replaced with 42-year-old Real Madrid Castilla manager, Santiago Solari as they keep searching for a manager.
United boss Mourinho has been tipped to leave the club following their poor start to the new Premier League season.
Conte, so far, has emerged as the overwhelming favourite to take over the reins at Real Madrid.
But Guardala claimed that the Italian has instead cooled his interest at taking over because he likes the prospect of managing United.
“There are many rumours about his future,” Guardala told Sky Italia.
“Real Madrid is tempting him but Manchester United is a team that Antonio Conte really like
“There are players like Paul Pogba, whom he coached at Juventus, or Alexis Sanchez, Herrera and Lukaku, three players he’s always wanted to sign.
“At the moment nothing is decided with Real Madrid.”

Nigerian Senator Under Fire For ‘Saying Buhari Will Lose In Northeast

Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim came under fire yesterday for predicting a loss for President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progresives Congress (APC) in the Northeast in next year’s elections.
His comment does not reflect the reality on ground and he is not speaking for Yobe State and the North east, a member of the House of Representatives, Goni Bukar Lawan, said.
But Senator Ibrahim denied the statements he reportedly made during the public presentation of his book as part of activities to mark his 70th birthday in Abuja at the weekend.
A statement by his media aide Yusuf Ali, quoted Senator Ibrahim, a three-time Yobe State Goveror and three-time senator as saying: “The senator remains a progressive politician who does not encourage rigging and would never have made such a statement like ‘massive rigging will not save APC/Buhari, APC is worse than PDP etc’, after fighting so hard to save Nigeria from the PDP.”
Rep. Lawan, chairman of the House Committee on Sports, told reporters after attending a meeting of the Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) in Lagos yesterday said:
“I feel bad that I am constrained to react to the disturbing comment of one of our leaders in Yobe State, His Excellency, Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim, who is probably still unhappy with the outcome of the APC primaries because he lost the APC senatorial ticket to outgoing Governor Ibrahim Gaidam.
I also didn’t get a ticket like the Senator but we all must make sacrifice for the APC; after all, the party has given us chances to be at the National Assembly. Senator Ibrahim’s wife, who is a minister, is the only member of the Federal Executive Council that succeeded in getting the APC’s ticket to contest election in 2019.
“All other ministers failed in their bids for tickets. I think the Senator is one of the major beneficiaries of the APC. We must know that other people also need opportunities to serve our people. Senator Ibrahim saying that APC will lose in Yobe and the northeast is a joke.
“Any grassroots politician who is very conversant with political feelers in Yobe and neighboring Borno State can tell anyone that come 2019, the APC is coasting to overwhelming victory in these two states and insha’Allah, the whole of Northeast.
The PDP is divided in both Borno and Yobe states while the APC is clearly the beautiful bride. So, how can anyone in all honesty raise doubts about the chances of APC in Yobe, Borno and the rest of the Northeast? “Our people are fully with President Muhammadu Buhari; no one can doubt this.
Yobe and Borno are among the greatest beneficiaries of the APC because under the PDP, our major problem was the overwhelming attacks of Boko Haram.
“The APC government of President Buhari is squarely fighting the Boko Haram. We are fully with our governors of Borno and Yobe and we are fully behind our governorship candidates Mala Mai Buni (Yobe) and Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum (Borno). We are behind all our national and state assembly candidates and by the grace of God, the APC will record resounding victory in the Northeast.
“I think Senator Ibrahim needs to remember that he is an elder statesman and elders don’t just say anything in public.
“Elders either speak wisely in public or they keep quiet” he said.
The Statement by Senator Ibrahim reads: ”The distinguished Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim has reacted to newspapers reports published and making the rounds in the social media sites that he is a loyal APC party member, a chieftain and an elder statesman. President Muhammadu Buhari is his president, he supported him as he will continue to support Buhari 2019 and even beyond.
”He mean no harm or to disparage the party which he fought so hard to build with other progressives element in 2015 to save Nigeria from drift and the decadence of the PDP.
”Many have given it different interpretations as it suit them, some quoted him out of context for political reasons. What he said is a wake up call for his party to work harder towards the next general elections to win overwhelmingly.
”I want to make it categorically clear that Sen Bukar did not say and will never say, “Mass rigging will not save APC/Buhari, APC is worse than PDP, PMB should not expect Votes from N/East, 2019 Dicey for PMB in N/East, etc as it’s been circulated in the media”.

OMG: Wretched Driver Rapes 2-Year-Old Girl In Lagos

The Lagos State Police Command have arrested a 38-year-old commercial bus driver, Sola Ewulo, for raping a 2-year-old girl.
The suspect was arrested on October 24, following the incident which occurred at Taiwo Street, Agbado-Ijaiye, Lagos. It was gathered that the mother of the 2-year-old girl reported the incident to the police, after she saw sperm dripping from her daughter’s body.
The rape victim’s mother had reportedly left her in the custody of the suspect to run an errand, an allegation Ewulo refuted.
Confirming the arrest of the suspect, the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Imohimi Edgal said;
“When she returned after a couple of minutes, she could not find her daughter nor the man she left her with. Much later, she saw her daughter on the corridor of the house scratching her private parts and she complained about the pains she was experiencing. .
On closer examination by her mother, she noticed some whitish substance dripping out of her private parts.”
Alarmed by the discovery, Edgal said the victim’s mother asked her who did that to her and she mentioned Ewulo.
The driver who refuted the claims, insisted that he went out for a job he was called to do.
He said:-
“I was not even around. It is not true that the mother left her with me. She usually left her with neighbours not anyone in particular. .
That day, I was not even around. I was told that sperm was seen on the child’s body and she said I was the one that did it. I do not know anything about it. I have three daughters and so, how will I do that to a little girl?”

Don’t Die: These 7 Tips Might Save Your Life If A Snake Bites You (Must Read)

To be bitten by a snake is a serious problem. But do you know what a more serious problem is? Not knowing what to do if a snake bites you. Or a scorpion stings you.
Let me tell you a story. Few weeks ago, a friend called at about 11 Pm saying a snake had just bitten him.
He asked if I had an idea what should be done, and, well, I did. So I told him. And he’s fine now. But, what if I didn’t have an idea?
The next day, I decided to ask 9 random people if they knew what to do when bitten by a snake or stung by a scorpion. None of them knew.
Knowledge of snake-bite first aid can be the difference between death and survival for a person. While it is highly essential to get emergency treatment as quickly as possible, keep these tips in mind.
Share to save a life.

1. Be Calm

Keep calm? When bitten by a snake? I know, I know it’s hard. But if you don’t keep calm, it would increase your heart rate leading to rapid spread of the venom because of increased blood flow.

2. Remove Clothing and Jewelry

The area surrounding the bite would swell so remove constricting clothing and jewelries.

3. Don’t Use Pieces Of Clothes

You might think using a piece of cloth would stop the spread of the venom, you’re wrong.
A Piece of cloth could cut off blood flow completely. Use a bandage.

4. Bandage It

Bandage firmly and immobilize affected body part with a splint or stick. Then keep the bite area below heart level to slow blood flow.

5. Don’t Suck

Do not suck or cut the wound in an attempt to remove the venom. It could increase the chance of infection and cause needless additional injury.

6. No Water, No Food

This is a golden rule. To keep the metabolism at a low rate, the victim shouldn’t eat or drink, especially caffeine beverages and alcohol.

7. Remember the details

Try to remember the color, shape of the snake and also the time of the bite. It would help in identification and treatment of the bite.
If you didn’t see the snake though, leave it don’t chase it. Not all snakes are venomous, but all snakebites should be treated as venomous.
Seek medical attention immediately. Scorpion Bites Scorpion stings can be quite painful so it is okay to use over-the-counter painkillers to reduce the pain and discomfort.
Ibuprofen and Aspirin could help. But most importantly, seek medical attention immediately.
BONUS Eat Onions, lots of it. Apply to the bite too.

2019 Election: Think Twice Before Supporting Someone Like Buhari – Yoruba Youths Warns Tinubu

Ahead of the 2019 Presidential election, some Yoruba youths under the aegis of Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association has warned APC Chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu against supporting President Muhammadu Buhari reelection.
The Yoruba youths who claimed that Bola Tinubu has been used and dumped by the APC stated that it was obvious that Buhari did not value the contributions of Tinubu towards the party and the emergence of Buhari as the President in 2015.
In the statement signed by the President of the YYSA, Mr Olalekan Hammed, the Yoruba Youths maintained that the position of former President Olusegun Obasanjo that Tinubu did not hold any post within the APC was justifiable, saying Buhari had written the Independent National Electoral Commission to state that he was the national leader of the APC.
“The fact that President Muhammadu Buhari deliberately wrote INEC to affirm his position as the APC national leader vindicates the former President Obasanjo who had sometimes challenged the former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to state his roles in the APC as the national leader of the party.
“Constitutionally, APC has no reasonable provision for him (Tinubu) in the party and he has been used and dumped.
“It would have been better and respectable, provided Mr.
Buhari did not write to INEC or talk about the issue. The letter he wrote to the electoral umpire to attest that he is the party’s national leader was aimed at ridiculing Tinubu.
“Yoruba people understand body language more than any other tribe in Nigeria. There is no sense in staying with people who do not appreciate your presence or feel your impact.
The YYSA implores Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to think twice before supporting Buhari’s re-election bid. There is no difference between someone who steals your property and someone who shows no gratitude for all the favour rendered to him” the statement read.
