Chelsea in Race to Win Premier League Title – Thomas Tuchel Declares after Liverpool Defeat

  Thomas Tuchel  has said that his target is not just qualifying the team for next season’s Champions League but to win the Premier League this season. Tuchel is now 10 matches unbeaten since taking over at Stamford Bridge. The German said that moving into the top four (as his team did after beating Liverpool at Anfield) and settling for Champions League qualification is not an option. “We didn’t think this way,” he told reporters after Chelsea’s win over Jurgen Klopp’s side. Mason Mount’s first-half strike was all the Blues needed to secure all three points and move into the top four displacing West Ham United. “We have already been in the top four after a win against Newcastle and we cannot lose the focus by looking at fixtures all the time, it does not help,” ...

Nigerians Are Not Hungry; Protest Caused Looting- Femi Adesina

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, says the looting of warehouses and shops by hoodlums cannot be traced to poverty in Nigeria but by the pandemonium that accompanied the #EndSARS protests. Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme, on Thursday, Adesina said attributing the looting to poverty was like justifying armed robbery. “Criminality is criminality. Would it justify armed robbery because the man was poor? Would it justify armed robbery because the man didn’t have money? Just as you cannot justify armed robbery because a man was poor and took a gun to rob another person, you can’t also justify the looting,” he said. Adesina claimed the protracted protests provided an atmosphere for looting to take place. He said i...

Lockdown: We Are Hungry – Private Schools Teachers Cry Out

Teachers of private schools have appealed to the government to assist them with palliatives, saying the prolonged closure of schools as part of measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19 is subjecting them to starvation. In a statement signed by their spokesman, Abdul-Ganiyy Raji, and made available to the Tribune Education in Kaduna, the private school teachers said it would be callous of the government to wait for owners and teachers of private schools to start dying of starvation before it comes to their aid. “We cannot afford to keep ignoring the welfare of private schools teachers. Private school teachers are now hungry. “We must remember that private schools survive primarily on earnings from their customers (parents) and we all know that schools have not collected third...

Half-A-Million More Zimbabweans Now Acutely Hungry ― United Nations

Poverty is a weapon and it's aimed at the people'.   See the rest of his tweets below.... ...
