Uzoho’s Club Status Worries Rohr

There are strong indications that Super Eagles goalkeeper to the last World Cup in Russia, Francis Uzoho is on the verge of losing his number one status for the team, if going by the body language of the Head Coach of the team, Gernot Rohr. The Franco-German tactician, who was part of Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football League crowd at the Agege Stadium in Lagos said he is worried the status of the goalkeeper with Spanish Segunda Division club, Elche, where he has lost out in the pecking order.

He is aggrieved because the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party through the intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari, turned down the demand to return his preferred successor, Hon. Adekunle Akinla...

Militarization of 2019 Polls may Mar Exercise, Abdulsalami Warns

Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar A former Head of State, Gen.

Abubakar spoke Friday night at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) where he delivered a lecture on ‘Election and Security in Nigeria: Policy Options and Strategies’ ahead of the grad...

You remember there was a programme in the south-east where Mr. President asked me to represent him an...
