Sports News: Man Utd sign Daniel James

Man United signed Daniel James

The Wales international has completed a move from Swansea City, becoming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first new recruit at Old Trafford

Welsh winger Daniel James has officially completed a move to Manchester United, putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.

James enjoyed a stellar 2018-19 season at the Liberty Stadium, contributing four goals and seven assists in the Championship.

He will now have the opportunity to impress in the Premier League, much to the delight of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian manager expressed his excitement after sealing the club's first summer signing, stating: “Daniel is an exciting young winger with lots of skills, vision, exceptional pace and a good work ethic. He had a great season with Swansea City and has all the attributes needed to become a Manchester United player.

“We are delighted he has signed with our club and we are all looking forward to working with him. This is the perfect environment for Daniel to continue his development.”

James was in an equally positive mood when addressing reporters, admitting that he cannot wait to embark on a new challenge.

“This is one of the best days of my life and a challenge I am really looking forward to," he began. "The Premier League is the best league in the world and Manchester United is the perfect place for me to continue to develop as a player.

“This is an incredibly proud moment for me and my family, however, it is tinged with sadness that my father isn’t able to share this experience with us. I am looking forward to working with Ole, meeting the team and getting started.”

James rose through the ranks at Swansea before graduating to the senior squad in 2016 and became a regular in the team after a loan spell at Shrewsbury in 2017.

The young attacker racked up 34 appearances for the Swans last season, earning a place in Ryan Giggs' Wales squad for recent Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Swansea officials are sad to see James go, but club chairman Trevor Birch wished him well for the future while confirming his departure.

“We are obviously hugely disappointed to lose a player of Daniel’s quality, especially after such a fantastic breakthrough season for us and the enjoyment he gave to those watching him," Birch said.

“However, given the level of those performances and the fact he has one year remaining on his contract, it was inevitable that once a club of the calibre of Manchester United came calling it would be virtually impossible to hold on to him.

“It goes without saying that we wish him well at his new club, especially after the sad loss of his father recently.

“We can only thank Daniel for his contribution over the past season and the pleasure he brought to so many of us watching his performances. I’m sure he has a great future ahead of him and we wish him every success in his career.’’

Buhari: President Muhammadu Buhari vow to renamed Stadium after MKO and rebuild Nigeria

Buhari vows to rebuild Nigeria, renames stadium after MKO Dailysunnews9ja

Buhari vows to rebuild Nigeria, renames stadium after MKO


The President said this in a speech he read at the first National Democracy Day celebration in Abuja, stating that he approved June 12 as the nation’s Democracy Day as part of the healing and reconciliation efforts for the annulment of the presidential election.

He also said with purposeful leadership, the Federal Government could move 10 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years.

But the opposition Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, said it was sad that the country was celebrating Democracy Day under Buhari, whose policies they claimed negated the June 12 spirit and ideals of the late Abiola.

They said the Buhari administration had desecrated all the nation’s democratic values and despoiled the electoral processes just to have itself in office

But in Abuja on Wednesday, Buhari honoured Abiola at the event witnessed by some of the children of the late politician, including Kola and Hafsat.

Also at the event were Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, service chiefs, President of Rwanda, Gambia, DR Congo, Gabon, Guinea Bissau, Namibia and Senegal. Among other dignitaries that also witnessed the event were representatives of the governments of Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Iran, Benin Republic, Ireland, Egypt, India and Niger.

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi and Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi were some of the invited monarchs for the ceremony.

Apart from honouring Abiola, the President also addressed diverse national issues and unfolded his government’s agenda on insecurity, economy and social security initiatives in the next four years.

Buhari said, “As we all know, correcting injustice is a pre-requisite for peace and unity. As part of the process of healing and reconciliation, I approved the recognition of June 12 as Democracy Day and conferred on the late Chief MKO Abiola and Babagana Kingibe national honours, as I did with the late Chief Gani Fawehinmi.

“The purpose was to partially atone for the previous damage done in annulling the Presidential election of that year. Today, I propose the renaming of the Abuja National Stadium. Henceforth it will be called Moshood Abiola National Stadium.”

Buhari noted that terrorism and insecurity had become worldwide phenomena, noting that even the best policed countries were experiencing increasing incidents of unrest.

He however said the security challenges facing the country were being met with superior strategy, firepower and resolve.

According to him, most of the instances of inter-communal and inter-religious strife and violence were sponsored or incited by ethnic, political or religious leaders, who he claimed, hoped to benefit by exploiting divisions and fault lines, thereby weakening the country.

The President said, “When I took the oath of office on May 29, 2015, insecurity reigned. Apart from occupying 18 local governments in the North-East, Boko Haram could at will attack any city including the Federal Capital Territory, could threaten any institution including bombing the United Nations building and the Police headquarters in Abuja.

“Admittedly, some of the challenges still remain in kidnappings and banditry in some rural areas. The great difference between 2015 and today is that we are meeting these challenges with much greater support to the security forces in terms of money, equipment and improved local intelligence. We are meeting these challenges with superior strategy, firepower and resolve.”

Buhari said as the chairman of ECOWAS, he would host a regional security summit of heads of states in the Sahel to develop a joint strategy to address security challenges in the region.

The President added that Nigeria had all ingredients to become a world leader.

“We have water, arable land, forests, oil and gas and vast quantities of solid minerals. We are blessed with an equable climate. However, the bulk of our real wealth lies in agriculture, livestock, forestry and mining. We possess all the ingredients of a major economic power on the world stage.

“What we require is the will to get our acts together. And our strength is in our people – our youth, our culture, our resilience, our ability to succeed despite the odds,” he added.

On the fight against corruption, Buhari said a lot of progress had been made, stressing however that corruption had found a way of fighting back.

He said, “At the heart of inequality and insecurity, is pervasive corruption. When we took office we realised that if you fight corruption, corruption will fight back – and we have seen this at all levels. For Nigeria to progress, a collective resolution to address corruption and foster broad-based prosperity is required to create a country that is not only for a few privileged, but for all Nigerians.”

He said the Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index, which he claimed was the gauge of manufacturing activity in the country, had also risen for 26 consecutive months since March 2017.

This, he said, indicated continuous growth and expansion in the manufacturing sector.

Buhari however bemoaned the poor condition of roads leading to the nation’s seaports, which he said, had affected productivity.

He said, “It still takes too long for goods to clear at our seaports and the roads leading to them are congested. It still takes too long for routine and regulatory approvals to be secured. These issues affect our productivity and we are committed to addressing them permanently.”

According to the President, the new mandate that Nigerians gave him through the last election had revived the will to rebuild and reposition Nigeria through collaboration with states, council areas, legislators and diplomatic corps.

He also noted that Nigeria would improve on initiatives to reduce reliance on imported products and grow local production.

Buhari said, “For small-scale enterprises in towns and cities, we shall expand facilities currently available so that we continue to encourage and support domestic production of basic goods and reduce our reliance on imported goods.

“For the next four years, we will remain committed to improving the lives of people by consolidating efforts to address these key issues as well as emerging challenges of climate change, resettling displaced communities and dealing decisively with the new flashes of insecurity across the country, and the impacts on food scarcity and regional stability.”

Buhari said over the next four years, his government would assemble a strong team to implement its transformative plans in education, health, power, road construction and other sectors.

He said, “We will see significant focus, resource and where necessary reform, in tertiary and technical education to reposition Nigeria’s workforce for the modern technological age. We will accelerate investments in primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare programmes.”

We can move 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10yrs – Buhari


Also, Buhari said the APC-led Federal Government could move 100 million Nigerians out of poverty within 10 years.

“In the face of these challenges, our government elected by the people in 2015 and re-elected in March has been mapping out policies, measures and laws to maintain our unity and at the same time lift the bulk of our people out of poverty and onto the road to prosperity.

“This task is by no means unattainable. China has done it. India has done it. Indonesia has done it. Nigeria can do it. These are all countries characterised by huge burdens of population.

“China and Indonesia succeeded under authoritarian regimes. India succeeded in a democratic setting. We can do it.

“With leadership and a sense of purpose, we can lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years.”

I renamed UNILAG after MKO, says Jonathan


Meanwhile, former President Goodluck Jonathan has said the Federal Government is being economical with the truth by claiming that Buhari is the first Nigerian leader to honour Abiola.

Jonathan in a statement by his media aide, Reno Omokri, on Wednesday said this claim was ridiculous as he renamed the University of Lagos after Abiola during his tenure.

He said, “This is a ridiculous assertion as the facts will prove…Between the National Stadium and the University of Lagos, which is more prestigious and which would require more courage to rename?

The former president also accused Buhari of inability to take courageous action against his cabinet members allegedly involved in corruption cases.

Jonathan said, “Recalled that former President Jonathan took several other courageous decisions during his Presidency, including firing two ministers when questions of impropriety were raised against them.

“There have been a number of serious and proven cases of impropriety involving Muhammadu Buhari’s ministers, including two incidents of clearly established cases of certificate forgery. Did Mr Buhari have the courage to move against them?”

Buhari’s speech showed disregard for tenets of democracy – PDP


However, the PDP in its reaction, said it was a national tragedy that Nigeria’s Democracy Day was celebrated under the Buhari-led APC government.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement also insisted that the Buhari Presidency and the APC should not have celebrated Democracy Day when they were still overburdened by the guilt of their questionable presidential electoral victory.

Ologbondiyan said, “President Buhari did not express any form of remorse for the barefaced constitutional violations, assault on institutions of democracy, particularly the legislature and the judiciary; human rights violations, assault on the media; and the general siege mentality in the polity under his watch.

“It is sad that on a day like this, Mr President dwelt on false performance claims and had no soothing word for millions of compatriots that have been subjected to the worst form of economic misery that they are now resorting to suicide and slavery mission abroad.”

The PDP spokesman also said the speech had no words of hope for the victims of escalated insurgency, kidnapping, banditry and bloodletting in the country.

He said, “How can this administration superintend over a Democracy Day celebration when it has questions of constitutional violations, electoral manipulations, media clampdown, victimisation of opposition, emasculation of free speech, brutalisation, arbitrary arrests and illegal detention, as already detailed in various reports, including those by the United States Department of State?”

Ologbondiyan stated that it was disheartening that the same electoral manipulation, violations and injustices for which the icon of June 12 Democracy Day, Chief Moshood Abiola died, had allegedly brazenly taken the centre stage under the APC misrule.

Buhari’s actions negate what June 12 stands for – Atiku


Also its presidential candidate said it was not enough to declare June 12, Democracy Day.

Atiku, in a statement, said, “Suffice it to state that the idea of June 12 is not merely to declare it as a Democracy Day – much as celebratory and commendable it might seem, the idea behind the event of June 12, 1993 embodies something much more bigger than that.

“It was a threshold moment in our national life that demands of us, as democrats, to embark on soul-searching and ask the salient question of all time: how better off are Nigerians?

“It is not enough to declare June 12 a Democracy Day when the government of the day is disrespectful of the rule of law and wantonly disregards court orders on issues that border on fundamental human rights.

“It is not enough to declare June 12 a work-free day when a disproportionate number of citizens are not sure of where their next meal will come from and when the sanctity of their lives is not guaranteed.

“It is not enough to declare June 12 a work-free day when freedom of the press, and of speech, fundamentals of democracy is being assailed.

“As a compatriot who stood shoulder to shoulder with the icon of the June 12 struggle, the Chief Moshood Abiola of blessed memory, I know first-hand that the choice of ‘hope’ as his campaign slogan wasn’t merely a populist tokenism.”

He stated that Abiola did not mean to deceive Nigerians with a hope he could not deliver.

Atiku said, “It is therefore not acceptable that an administration which had an opportunity of four years to deliver the promise of change to Nigerians, not only reneged on that promise, but propelled the country into a near-comatose state will lay claims to being a true friend of the June 12 struggle.

“To be a lover of June 12 is to believe in the common good of the people. June 12 is about the political leadership having the focus to retool the Nigerian economy. It is about having the skills to create wealth and jobs for the teeming mass of unemployed Nigerians. It is not about the inclination for shared pains; it is about shared prosperity.”

APC hails Buhari, says honour for MKO corrects past injustice


But the APC, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the day was significant and momentous.

The party said, “Today’s celebration is not only significant in the annals of our political history, but also momentous in all ramifications.

“The President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government has once again demonstrated its avowed commitment to correct past injustices and celebrate heroes and heroines that paid the supreme sacrifice for the democratic freedom that we all cherish and enjoy today.

“In correcting past injustices, the APC-led government is also committed to equitable administration of our commonwealth for the benefit of all Nigerians.”

Nigeria needs June 12 spirit to remain united – Kola Abiola


Also, a son of the late Abiola, Kola, said Nigeria must reawaken the spirit of June 12, 1993 for the nation to grow stronger.

He spoke at the Democracy Day celebration.


Kola said, “People voted for MKO Abiola across Nigeria as one Nigeria irrespective of religion or tribe, that is why we have this day. We must not lose the fact that (for the June 12, 1993 presidential election) we had a Muslim/Muslim ticket, we had someone viewed as a true and detribalised Nigerian and we had a situation where across the board, parties, religion, ethnicity, schools, all voted for one person.

“In the last 26 years, we have lost that. We have to come back to that now. All our leaders, irrespective of their political inclination, irrespective of religion should come together under the leadership of President Buhari and hold this nation together. Without that, this day becomes irrelevant.”

Also at the venue, MKO Abiola’s daughter, Hafsat Abiola-Costello, told one of our correspondents that her father did not betray Nigerians and that the spirit of June 12 should be expected under President Buhari.

She said, “Today is the fulfilment of my father’s vision. He trusted the Nigerian people that they would always defend him. He could not betray them and today we could see that Nigerians have not betrayed MKO Abiola.”

Pastor Commands member to take off her pants during church service

Dailysunnews9ja


When we think we have seen it all in the bizarre things ‘Men of God’ do in church and with their members, another outrageous one finds its way out.

This time, a man of God identified as Pastor Sobrino Valdeci Picanto, a Nigerian based in Brazil, has been arrested for ordering a lady to take off her pants and open her legs wide for the spirit of pregnancy to penetrate into her vagina.

The same pastor is also said to have persuaded some of his followers to suck his manhood saying that it had sanctified ‘milk’ to heal them from bad omens instantly.

“He convinced us that only God could come into our lives through the mouth and asked us to do perform oral acts on him until the Holy Spirit came through seed and delivered funds to the church.” a follower spilled out

Sobrino Valdeci Picanto, 59, was arrested in Apore, Goiás, Brazil, for raping several women attending his church.

He gave as an excuse that his reproductive organs had been consecrated with “divine seminal fluid of the Holy Spirit and that the Lord had consecrated him with the divine milk of the spirit”

Valdecir came to abuse some elderly, and defended himself by saying that he “had an encounter with Jesus in a brothel and gave him the mission of spreading the sacred semen throughout the state, beginning with the faithful Apore Assembly, of which he is responsible.”

Denise Pinheiro, delegate of the region, said, “Valdecir was caught red-handed while rubbing his reproductive units in the face of a local merchant, which he promised to make her more sales in her business due to the divine liquid.

“When we acted Valdecir offered no resistance and even asked if I wanted to be part of the kingdom of heaven on the way to the police station.”

Omokri begs Buhari to negotiate Leah Sharibu's release

Omokri begs Buhari to negotiate Leah Sharibu's release

Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on Saturday appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to negotiate with Boko Haram over the release of Leah Sharibu.

Omokri made the appeal while sharing a photograph of Buhari and his children.

The former presidential aide insisted that Leah’s father, Nathan Irmiya would also love to take a photograph with his daughter, hence the need for negotiation.

Sharibu was abducted by Boko Haram insurgents on the night of February 19, 2018 alongside her schoolmates from Government Science College, Dapchi in Yobe State.

The abducted student has remained in custody of the insurgents for refusing to denounce her Christian faith.

However, Omokri, in a tweet wrote: “Dear @MBuhari,

“Leah’s father, Nathan Irmiya Sharibu, also wants to take a picture like this with his daughter, Leah Sharibu.

“Please, I BEG on my KNEES, enter into negotiation with Boko Haram to #FreeLeahSharibu.

“Please join me in RETWEETING till Muhammadu Buhari sees this.”

Youths will be trained to convert waste to wealth — Sanwo-Olu

Youths will be trained to convert waste to wealth — Sanwo-Olu


Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that the Resource Centre at the Olusosun Dump site, near Ojota will soon be available for training and retraining of youths on how to convert waste to wealth.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed that the building under construction at the entrance of the site would be used to train and retrain the staff and create more jobs for the people, adding that the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) would be strengthened to collect recyclable materials necessary for the creation of more jobs.

The Governor said this on Friday afternoon when he visited the Olusosun dump site in the company of his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat and the Lagos State Waste Management Authority’s boss, Ola Oresanya.

He said, “we are here today to validate the Executive Order we signed, this is where we receive 70 per cent of the waste in Lagos; the facility is 28years old so we want to ensure that it can receive waste for the next 23years’’.

The governor noted that wastes sorting and recovery is the way to go and should start from different homes, adding that sorting must start in the kitchen and that waste recovery, sorting and recycling would go a long way in putting an end to indiscriminate dumping in the state.

He disclosed that arrangements are being finalised with LAWMA to design sorting bags of various colours for different items and that hundreds of these bags would be distributed to Lagos residents in the first instance.

He also disclosed the plan to expand the dumpsite to accommodate more waste, saying: “We want to expand the facility to 42 acres so that trucks can have a quicker turnaround time”.

The Governor expressed the possibility of the return of the monthly sanitation exercise after consultations with various stakeholders, saying such exercise would go a long way in making Lagos one of the beautiful cities in the world thereby restoring the lost glory of Lagos.

Real owners of MTN Nigeria reveal.

Real owners of MTN Nigeria reveal.

Many Nigerians believed the Nigerian government owned part of the South African firm through an unspecified equity holding by the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA).    But a review of the listing memorandum filed by MTN Nigeria in support of its application for the enlistment of its shares on the NSE revealed the profiles of the shareholders of the company.

Last Thursday’s listing of MTN Nigeria shares on the Premium Board of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has made it possible to identify the shareholders of the telecoms firm.

Many Nigerians believed the Nigerian government owned part of the South African firm through an unspecified equity holding by the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA).

But a review of the listing memorandum filed by MTN Nigeria in support of its application for the enlistment of its shares on the NSE revealed the profiles of the shareholders of the company.

The list did not include either the Nigerian government or the NSIA. PREMIUM TIMES learnt that the NSIA investment “is very small” and could not have been listed among those of the big players.

MTN Nigeria, a subsidiary of MTN International (Mauritius) Limited, was incorporated in the Republic of Mauritius, with its ultimate holding company, MTN Group.

The company was incorporated on November 8, 2000. But, it did not commence operations until 2001. Since then, the company has remained in operations for almost 18 years in Nigeria.

MTN Nigeria is reputed to be Nigeria’s largest telecoms operators, with about 67 million subscribers, controlling about 39 per cent mobile market share.

'I Warned Osinbajo About Being Mobbed By Hefty Women' Says Buhari On Trader Moni

They endear this government to a lot of poor people because of these N5,000 or N10,000 being given to them as loans.    President Muhammadu Buhari has said he had expressed initial reluctance to implement vice president Yemi Osinbajo's 'trader Moni' programme.

They endear this government to a lot of poor people because of these N5,000 or N10,000 being given to them as loans.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said he had expressed initial reluctance to implement vice president Yemi Osinbajo's 'trader Moni' programme.

The statment by President Buhari is already heavily critisized on social media as 'body shaming women'.

Buhari made the statement when he hosted Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, ministers, service chiefs, heads of security agencies and chief executives of federal government agencies and institutions to iftar (breaking of fast) at the presidential villa on Monday.

He said: “This 'market money' I warned the Vice-President I don’t like him to be mobbed, especially the way I see hefty women coming and confronting him, he should be very careful,” he said.

“These are very good initiatives. Initially, I  was quite reluctant but I must admit that they are very good programmes and they endear this government to a lot of poor people because of these N5,000 or N10,000 being given to them as loans.

"They are fantastic programmes and I have to admit quite honestly that the Vice-President was ahead of me by insisting on them.

“But he knows me if he insists I will say okay go and do what you like.’ He did it and I’m very pleased as he is being very successful.”

Should Indian Hemp Be Legalised In Nigeria? By Natasha Akpoti

Do you think we are being hypocritical in the management of hemp in Nigeria?

Natasha Akpoti is a senatorial candidate, Kogi Central, 2019 general election.

Natasha Akpoti is a senatorial candidate, Kogi Central, 2019 general election.


It suddenly turned cold in Boston and I wasn’t properly dressed for the weather.

My hotel was far away and my only option was to dash into a store for some jeans or leggings to wear under my long dress. 

Patagonia was right beside me. 

I walked in and began hunting for the perfect pair. 

Then I saw a signage “HEMP CLOTHING “ and in smaller letters : 

Natural . Misunderstood. Legal. 


I walked up to the racks beneath and behold, all clothing from jeans to skirts; baby wears to socks were made out of hemp. 

Trust my Nigerianess... Indian Hemp ke. I no dey buy . Make cold kuku kill me. I remembered all the horrible ideas of how destructive hemp is. 

So I ended up walking away from that store into another for my purchase. 

However, curiosity got the better part of me... so I opened my laptop and began my research into hemp.  

My discovery left me astonished 


Hemp has been used by humans for over 10,000 years and it’s the strongest natural fiber in the world. 

Interestingly, there are no wasted parts of the hemp plant . Both seeds and stalks are used to produce the following;


Hemp Seed

From hemp seeds we get lotions, hair creams, makeup, nail polish, cooking oil, paint production, fuel production, ink, animal feeds, bakery products, dairy production, beer production, butter, milk, chocolate , cereal etc. 

Hemp stalks 

All clothing made out of cotton can be made from hemp e.g jeans, shirts, face caps etc. Moreover, Fiber board for construction, fiberglass , compost, fuel as biodiesel and ethanol, carpets, plastic products, baby diapers, papers, bags, canvas, shampoo, sneakers and so much more are made from hemp. 

Little wonder, China’s hemp market generated $1.1b in 2017 while America’s hemp market generated $1b in 2018. 

So let’s ponder, if the world has created over 50,000 uses from hemp and countries cashing in on the vast market thereby generating revenue and jobs, why is Nigeria still stuck on its illegal pronouncement by the Indian Hemp Act of  31st March of 1966. 

Do you think we are being hypocritical in the management of hemp in Nigeria? 

Is there a way legislative reforms and of course some regulatory measures can be put in place to balance hemp’s consumption while Nigeria operates a sustainable manufacturing industry? 

Remember, Hemp is illegal in Nigeria yet Nigeria is the 8th ranking country in the world’s hemp consumption. Sadly by mostly idle youths who are not properly educated about its vices. 

Probably, discussions and debates on hemp and cannabis generally should be held often to help educate and guide our youths against its abuse... this would also help create a world of entrepreneurial opportunities and have our youths gainfully employed from the same “destructive” product . 

Suffice it to applaud the out-of-the-box economic diversification efforts of Governor Akeredolu of Ondo state who is charging Nigeria to key into the 2025 forecasted $145b Cannabis market. 

By the way, we are talking about industrial hemp. 

Note: it’s about time we get leaders who are disruptive in their ability to create thriving innovative yet inclusive economics. 

Leaders bold enough to challenge our blind-spots and launch Nigeria out of hopelessness into adventurous prosperity.
