Governor Ikpeazu charges newly-elected PDP exco to take party higher

Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has charged officials of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to work together and ensure the party wins all upcoming elections.

Ikpeazu advised the newly-elected executives of the state chapter of the party at the PDP Congress, in Umuahia Township Stadium in the state capital.

Recall that at the congress on Saturday, a former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Asiforo Okere, had emerged as the party’s Chairman, while Chief Obinna Nwachukwu was elected the Deputy Chairman.

Reacting to the outcome of the congress, Ikpeazu said the newly elected party executives should start working and ensure they win new members and galvanize support for the party.

Ikpeazu noted that election victories should not be taken for granted despite the party’s consistent victory in the state.

“PDP is Abia State and Abia State is PDP”, Ikpeazu said.

The Governor noted that PDP being the hope of Nigerians in the next general elections, has a very demanding task ahead, stressing that all members are needed to achieve the set objectives.

While assuring them of his support at all times, Ikpeazu reminded the new executives that they have been elected to serve the people and not the other way round.

He, therefore, called on members of the party to also cooperate with and support the executives to enable them to deliver on their mandate.

The Governor, however, urged aggrieved members to seek redress through the appropriate channels in the party.

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

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 …
