Insecurity is a Result of the Failure of Past Leaders – Governor Umahi

The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has said that the failure of past Nigerian leaders to address the future of young people is responsible for the present insecurity in the country. Governor Umahi said this when he appeared on Channels Television on Thursday, May 6. According to the governor, it is not proper to blame the present administration for the heightened insecurity in the country as the reasons are systematic. “When people talk about the recent insecurity in our country, I keep saying that the insecurity did not just develop overnight.

Brighton Surge Towards Safety with Leeds Win

Brighton eased any fears of relegation with a convincing 2-0 win over Leeds that took them 10 points clear of Fulham in the drop zone. With only two wins from their past 20 home Premier League matches, Brighton needed a fast start to settle the nerves and got it when Welbeck was fouled inside the area by Ezgjan Alioski. The penalty was coolly converted by Gross. Leeds, without Kalvin Phillips to injury, lacked the attacking spark to seriously trouble the hosts and Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay both wasted huge opportunities to take the game away from Marcelo Bielsa's men. Brighton's failure to convert those chances didn't cost them though as Welbeck popped up with the second goal, skilfully making a chance for himself before firing into the bottom corner.

Tuchel Set to bring Lukaku Back to Chelsea

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, is set to bring Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku back to the club, according to Calcio Mercato.
