Oluwo seeks Buhari’s intervention in Iwo

Buhari reacts as Army kills three policemen in Taraba, reveals next action
The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi, has lamented the fate of his town, describing it as the most marginalized among big towns in Nigeria.

The monarch called on President Muhammadu Buhari to correct the wrong by approving the new Federal College of Education for the town.

In a statement, Oba Akanbi said as, at 1931, Iwo was the fifth largest town in Nigeria behind, Ibadan, Kano, Lagos, Ogbomoso, stating that all the others had reaped the benefit of their sizes with infrastructural facilities.

He said regrettably that despite the fact that Iwo is the most populous local government in Osun State, there is no federal institution in the town, a situation which has robbed the town expected growth among the four named towns, urging President Buhari to site the new higher institution in the town because major towns in the state have federal institutions from which they benefit.

“It is disheartening watching those towns which were ranked alongside Iwo becoming megacities with up-to-date amenities provided by the federal and state government. I am not holding it against President Buhari administration of just five years. But I am now calling on him to use his good office to site the proposed Federal College of Education here in my town. We have land and all other resources that would be needed to ensure the school takes off at the right time,” he said.

Oba Akanbi also commended President Buhari for empowering the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to operate effectively with its recent exploits and results being recorded in some of the prosecuted cases. The traditional ruler, therefore, promised his continued support for the administration just as he urged Nigerians to always shun actions which would make them guests of the anti-graft agency.

“A country riddled with corruption cannot progress. That is why we should support President Buhari in his fight against it. It may not be an easy fight because corruption is entrenched in the system but I am confident that with what I have seen so far, this administration would achieve meaningful results before it serves its terms out in 2023. I am also urging the officials of the EFCC to live above board because all eyes are on them. They are the last hope of the common man who wants stolen money recovered. So, it is very important the officials work with a high level of transparency,” he said

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Mourinho looking to steal Man United transfer with phone call

Jose Mourinho has made some good progress with Tottenham Hotspur. The club was struggling when Mauricio Pochetino left mid-season. Jose has his ways of doing things and many times his way might not be ideal.

But as Jose has always said, the most important thing is to get in the result. And since Mourinho has joined only Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have earned more points than Tottenham.

Tottenham was at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Jose took them to sixth place and got them back in Europe. However, the expectations will be even higher for the next season. Spurs will want to push into the top four and compete for a Champions League place.

However to accomplish that goal Jose will need to add some players. Tottenham have already completed 3 signings. The club signed Joe Hart from Burnley on a free transfer.

Matt Doherty came in from Wolverhampton for £15 million and Pierre-Emile Hoijberg came in from Southampton for the same amount. But Jose Mourinho wants mo…
