Champions League! See The Bayern Munich Player Set To Break Ronaldo Record After Chelsea Win

August 09, 2020

Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski, needs five goals to break Cristiano Ronaldo’s record, after scoring twice in their 4-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday night.

It took his season’s tally to 53 in all competitions, as the Bundesliga champions progressed with a 7-1 aggregate.
The Poland striker now has 13 goals in seven Champions League games so far, four behind the record Ronaldo set for a single season in 2013/2014.
However, Lewandowski insists he is more focused on helping Barca beat Barcelona in the quarter-final next Friday.
“It’s not a target for me. We have another knockout game to come and have to play really well as a team,” Lewandowski told Sky Germany when asked about Ronaldo’s record.
“The most important thing is to play well and reach the next round. We have to show as a team we are better [than Barcelona] in order to reach the semi-finals.
“Barcelona are always dangerous and play great football. We have to be at it from the first minute and show our quality. The better team will play in the next round.”

Edo: We Won’t Copy PDP’s Do-Or-Die Rhetorics, Scare Tactics, Says APC

August 09, 2020

The ruling All Progressives Congress APC has hailed the electorate in Edo state for its show of support during weekend’s flag-off of its governorship campaign, promising never to employ the do-or-die rhetorics and scare tactics of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in its electioneering.

APC in a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena noted that the Edo electorate has sent a clear message on the governance direction of the state – a progressive one which puts the people’s welfare and interests first.
“As a party, we don’t take this overwhelming support for granted. As articulated in Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s six-point ‘SIMPLE agenda’ that stands for Security, Infrastructural development, Manpower development, Public-Private Partnership, Leadership and Employment creation, the APC campaign will be issue-based and devoid of the do-or-die rhetoric and scare tactics the Peoples Democratic Party PDP is deploying ahead of the September 19 governorship election”, the APC said.
It noted that President Muhammadu Buhari in endorsing the APC governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu charged the APC leadership to prosecute and win the Edo State governorship election using all legal and constitutional means by avoiding the pitfalls that affected the party’s victory in Rivers, Zamfara and Bayelsa states during and after the 2019 elections.
“This we intend to achieve with the new and positive party disposition under the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker Committee.
‘We congratulate the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker Committee for successfully bringing together party ranks as a repositioned, united and happy family in total support of the APC governorship candidate. Going forward, the task before us is to collectively showcase our evident people-focused development records to the good people of Edo state”, the statement added.

The Party particularly thanked the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II for the very warm reception and hospitality he extended to its leaders during the courtesy visit to the Palace.

“The World May End Before Next RCCG Convention” – Pastor Adeboye

August 09, 2020

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has told his church members that the world may come to an end before the 69th convention.

He stated this on Friday during the 68th Annual Convention of the church, which held virtually because of the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.
The renowned cleric, however, stated that he does know when the Lord will return but urged his members whom he often refers to as “my children” to prepare for the end.
During the program themed, ‘Wonderful’, Adeboye, who preached on the topic, ‘Seven Wonderful Things About God’, implored his church members and thousands of viewers from all over the world to turn away from sinful lifestyles because “Psalm 7:11 says God is angry with the wicked every day.”

The 78-year-old preacher said:-

“Don’t say I didn’t tell you, my children, I don’t know which convention will be the last one.
“The Lord may return before we have another convention. I don’t know when Jesus may return, but if any of you fails to make it to heaven, it will not be because I didn’t tell you the whole truth. God can be wonderfully angry.
“Watch your steps those of you who are playing games with the all-seeing God. God is angry with the wicked every day.
“Your life is in His hands and He can decide your last breath. But if you surrender your life to Him today, God can still save your soul and give you a brand new beginning.”
According to him, the size of God is wonderful, His love, mercy, glory, name, and anger are all wonderful.
Adeboye noted that the wrath of God could be dangerous, saying, “There is always one prayer I always pray. That’s my secret I’m telling you now.
“I’m not asking for money, I’m not asking for clothes, I know my God is more than sufficient.
“Only one prayer I pray: God, don’t let me ever annoy You.
“And He has proved to me that the more He loves you, the more you must be careful.”

Continuing, the pastor said:-

“It doesn’t matter what anybody may tell you, my God is not a Father Christmas.
“Oh yes, He is love and His love is wonderful. But, according to Hebrews 12:6, the Bible says whomsoever He loves, He chastens and scourges every son He receives.
“If He loves you and you are special to Him, be careful, don’t toy with Him. In Revelation 3:19, He says, as many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. He says be zealous and therefore repent. Don’t mess with God.
“If God loves you, He will not leave you on your own. He won’t allow you to go ahead and do whatever you want because it is written in Proverbs 29:15 that a child left to himself will bring shame.
“Hebrews 12:29 made it clear, yes, God is love but He is also the consuming fire. Hebrews 10:31 says it is a very dangerous thing to fall into the hands of the living God,” he added.

Buruji Kashamu’s Death: Nigerians Will Watch Out Your End – Fayose Fires Back At Obasanjo

August 09, 2020

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has attacked ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo over his comments in reaction to the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.

Fayose said that Nigerians will watch out for the end of Obasanjo, warning the former President against acting like a saint.
DAILY POST reported on Saturday that Kashamu died of COVID-19 related issues.
And in reaction, Obasanjo said despite using politics to maneuver the law to escape justice, Kashamu could not escape death.
The former lawmaker found himself in a legal tussle with the government anti-corruption agencies which led to his planned extradition to the US, over alleged drug trafficking.
Obasanjo’s comment angered Fayose, who believes that the former President at some point collaborated with Kashamu.
Fayose condemned the statement made by Obasanjo, stating that “It is regrettable that the former President could make such comments about the departed politician.”
According to Fayose, Obasanjo was making this comment when Buruji Kashamu can no longer question him, wondering “Why didn’t he say that when [he] was alive?
“Can Obasanjo say in good conscience that he did not at some point collaborated with Kashamu and most of the things he (Kashamu) did politically were not with his collaboration?
“Nigerians will watch out for Obasanjo’s own end. He should stop forming saint because he is not. He should also remember that his own end will come too and nobody knows how the end will be.”
Fayose, who commiserated with the bereaved family, describing his death as an irreparable loss, also prayed for the repose of his soul.

Gattuso Welcomes Former Milan Team-mate Pirlo Into Juventus Job

August 09, 2020

Gennaro Gattuso warned Juventus head coach Andrea Pirlo that his illustrious playing career will count for little in his new job.

Pirlo, who has not had a coaching job and only took over as Juve’s Under-23s boss last week, was handed the reins in Turin on Saturday in the wake of Maurizio Sarri’s dismissal.
Sarri was sacked after just a single season in the job, after leading the Serie A champions to defeat to Lyon in their Champions League last-16 tie the previous evening.
The former midfielder – who won four Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana during a four-year spell with Juve – has signed a two-year deal, and he is now gearing up for his first-ever coaching job at one of the world’s biggest clubs.
And Gattuso, who played alongside Pirlo at Milan and for Italy, provided an honest assessment of the job’s difficulties for his former team-mate.
“Well he’s screwed now… That’s the job,” Gattuso told Sky Italia following Napoli’s defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League on Saturday.
“He’s lucky to be starting at Juventus, but this profession is one where a great playing career is not enough.
“You have to study, to work hard, and you don’t get much sleep.”

Oba Of Benin Thanks Buhari For Endorsing Ize-Iyamu (Photos)

August 09, 2020

The Oba of Benin, Omo N’ Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare N’Ogidgan 11, yesterday thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for endorsing and presenting his party flag to the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) candidate in the Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize- Iyamu, insisting that the Benin Palace remains neutral in the politics of the state.

The highly revered Oba stated this when he received the APC’s candidate and the governors elected under the platform of APC, who visited him in his Palace in Benin City, the Edo state capital, during the flag off of the party’s governorship campaign in the state yesterday.
Oba Ewuare who, along with his Palace chiefs, prayed and gave Ize-Iyamu the traditional blessing said that even though he was elated over the endorsement of the APC’s candidate by the President, he explained that the Palace of the Oba of Benin does not get involved in partisan politics.
He strongly advised that in order to avoid recurrent socio-political conflict that seems to regularly ravish the state, making the state a laughing stock to the rest of the country on how politicians manage their affairs, Edo political actors should eradicate the twin evil of political violence.
Oba Ewuare 11 prayed for peace during and after the state governorship election slated for September 19, advising all stakeholders to play by the rules. Earlier while speaking, Ize-Iyamu said he was in the Palace, in line with the Benin tradition and culture to inform the Oba that the APC’s leaders were in his domain, Benin City, for the flag off of the party’s governorship election and requested for his blessing and prayer.
Speaking later at the well attended rally held at Uniben Sports Complex, Mai Mala Buni, the governor of Yobe State and Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) National Caretaker Committee advised supporters of the party to shun violence during campaigns and the September 19 Edo State governorship election.

He said:-

“You should not be involved in violence during the campaign and election because for us victory is sure.
“You should ensure that you go out and vote for APC, your vote will count,” On his part, the chairman, APC campaign Council and Kano State governor, Abdullah Umar Ganduje, said with the crowd witnessed during the campaign flag-off, APC will win the September 19 Governorship Election.
He said with the simple agenda of the party candidate, victory is already assured.
He commended the state chapter of the party for the successful swearing-in of the 14 members-elects of the State Assembly.
Former governor of the state and immediate past national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, said Ize-Iyamu is coming to reengineer the development of the state. He said, “When Ize-Iyamu becomes the governor, he would bring back government’s property privatised by Governor Godwin Obaseki, especially the Edo Central Hospital for both the rich and the poor,”.
Other dignitaries at the event were Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Dapo Abiodun, Rotimi Akeredolu, Hope Uzodima, Isiaka Oyetola, Abubakar Sani Bello, Nasir el-Rufai of Lagos, Ogun, Ondo, Imo, Osun, Niger and Kaduna states.
Also present were Rotimi Amaechi, Timprey Silva, Ministers of Transportation and Minister of State for Petroleum respectively, Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo- Agege.

Edo Election: Oshiomhole Not Face Of My Campaign – Ize-iyamu

August 08, 2020

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, has cleared the air on claims that Adams Oshiomhole, a former National Chairman of the party, has taken over his campaign.

Ize-Iyamu said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, should be blamed for viral videos and comments of Oshiomhole in public places.
The APC candidate said that Oshiomhole is not the face of his election, adding that it was the PDP that “keeps mentioning his name and talking about him and playing his tapes as if he’s the candidate.”
Addressing the press in Benin, the Edo State capital on Saturday, Ize-Iyamu said,
“Let me first inform you that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is not the face of the election. As you already know, I’m the gubernatorial candidate and Mallam Gani Audu is the deputy.
“It is the PDP that keeps mentioning his name and talking about him and playing his tapes as if he’s the candidate.
“But I want to inform you that I’m very well known in Edo where I’ve lived all my life. I was the Chief of Staff and Secretary to the Government.
“Of course, Adams Oshiomhole comes from Edo and he is an APC member. So it’s natural for him to campaign for us.”
Recall that the All Progressives Congress, APC, Progressive Governors Forum, PGF, had cautioned Oshiomhole over his involvement in the governorship campaign.
PGF said Oshiomhole should not lead the APC governorship campaign in Edo State.
Urging the former APC National Chairman to “calm down”, PGF said the party’s governorship candidate in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu should be allowed to lead his own campaign.

Edo Election: Primate Ayodele Reveals APC Plans For Obaseki, Prophecy On Aisha Buhari

August 08, 2020

The leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has claimed his prophecy on the health of Aisha Buhari, Nigeria’s First Lady, has come to fulfillment.

He also claimed to have prophesied the political crisis going on in Edo State ahead of the forthcoming election.
Primate Ayodele recalled that he had many months ago issued a prophecy that Obaseki will become victorious in the coming election except there is manipulation in the election.
“I even like (former National Chairman of the APC, Adams) Oshiomhole than Obaseki and I don’t pity Obaseki, but Oshiomhole will not be the one to give the next governor to the people of Edo State.
“I’m only saying what the Lord is telling me to say. Anyone who rigs will die of COVID-19. Obaseki should wake up.
“He will win without manipulation and rigging,” he had said.
In a statement to us on Saturday, he said the recent happening in the state has confirmed that the APC and its members are jittery over the prophecy and wants to ensure Obaseki is frustrated.
“Several manipulations have been recorded which includes assembly members trying to impeach the governor, some members of his cabinet resigning, a deliberate and intentional move to oust him from the race,” he added.
Ayodele said he had, a few weeks ago, also called on the Aso rock officials to pay special attention to President Buhari and Aisha Buhari’s health.
“It’s still in the Villa. Aisha should wake up. Buhari will cry again, if care isn’t taken. Someone will still die in the Villa.
“The President and his wife should be paid more attention,” he had said.
The cleric made the claim following reports yesterday that Aisha Buhari has been flown out of the country for treatment.
