How Governor Nasir El-Rufai ‘Secretly’ Withdrew His Son From Public School

The governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has secretly withdrawn his son, Abubakar Al-Sadiq from Kaduna Capital School after what many observers described as “political and media stunt” to give the impression that he is like any commoner. While the enrolment of Al-Sadiq in the public school was greeted by massive commendation from all walks of life, the removal of the son was not made public, a development seen by many as “betrayal of public trust and confidence.” It is not clear why the governor made a U-turn as some commentators said it could be due to the widespread abduction by kidnappers in public schools especially in Kaduna and neighbouring states, or pressure from family, or lack or doubts on the capacity of the government school to groom his son as what obtains...

The Frenchman has now fallen behind Edinson Cavani in the pecking order. Other fringe players such as Andreas Pereira and Diogo Dalot may also leave. Both were sent out on loan to Serie A ...

Man City vs Chelsea: Thomas Tuchel Gives Verdict on Raheem Sterling’s Foul on Werner

  Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, believes Raheem Sterling was fortunate to stay on the field after a late foul on Timo Werner during Chelsea’s 2-1 victory against Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday. Goals from Hakim Ziyech and Marcos Alonso gave Chelsea all three points against Man City as Sterling’s first-half goal was not enough to give Pep Guardiola’s side a point at Etihad. Sterling made a late high foul on Werner, but after a VAR check, they stayed with referee Anthony Taylor’s initial decision of a yellow card. When asked about his thoughts on Sterling demanding a penalty after being involved in a clash with Kurt Zouma in the second half during the encounter, Tuchel said at his post-match press conference, “I only saw it live and I was in fear that h...

Footballer, Michael Owen has revealed the reason he didn't socialize with David Beckham when the pair were team-mates at Real Madrid. Beckham arrived at the Bernabeu in Spain in 2003 after a row with Sir Alex Ferguson. Owen then joined the La Liga giants from Liverpool for £8million in 2004.

The draw means that Manchester City now has a 10-point advantage at the top of the table with five games remaining of the campaign.

Whats The Biggest Promised You’ve Ever Made During Sex?

Sex was primarily for procreation and for the benefit and pleasure of men. Very few men paid attention to the feelings and satisfaction of women. The women were expected to just lie there and take it and be grateful. Most women did. But that’s no longer the case. These days, girls seem to be the ones enjoying sex more than guys as they always have the impression that must get something in return of offering their body to a man. Have you ever been in a situation whereby you seriously need to cum, or that you have been so obsessed with the sex you’re having?
