Arsenal Lose At Home To Leicester For The First Time In The EPL As Vardy Scores

Jamie Vardy came off the bench to score a customary goal against Arsenal and send Leicester to within a point of the Premier League summit with a first win at the Gunners' home since 1973.

A former President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, has said that without unity in the ranks of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa state, the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) may find their way into the governance of the state come November 16, 2019. The Special Adviser to Governor Seriake Dickson on Media Relations, Mr Fidelis Soriwei, quoted the former president as saying this during the PDP elders advisory council meeting held at the Bayelsa Government House in Yenagoa on Tuesday.

Regina Daniels’ husband, Ned Nwoko loses case at Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the two suits filed by Ned Nwoko, challenging election of Sen. Peter Nwaoboshi as the PDP candidate representing Delta North district in the Oct. 2, 2018 primary of the party held in Delta.

Arsenal Lose £210m In Four Years Thanks To Poor Transfer Dealings

Remember when Arsene Wenger picked up the world class Sol Campbell on a free deal from rivals Tottenham in 2001? But the Gunners have been nothing short of a disaster over the past few years, a contrast to what WAS a well run club. Not a coincidence that ever since Stan Kroenke took full control of the North Londoners, it's been a downhill. And if you look over the last four years, it becomes clear where the problem lies with more than £200m thrown away. Losing top stars on free transfers, selling too cheap and youngsters going for nothing, it's been that bad. Ever since the 2016-17 season it's been bad, and there's nothing that Arsenal supporters are going to like. 2016-17 SERGE GNABRY LEFT FOR: £5m to Werder Bremen WORTH: £60m Once touted as one of the best young playe...

Divorce Your Wife, Lose Your House To Her – Oyo Court Rules

A woman that has children for her husband and had married him before a house is built has the right to live in the house with her children even after divorce under the provisions of the Married Woman Property Act 1882, a court held on Friday in Ibadan, Oyo State. The belief that patriarchy is so entrenched in the Nigerian system and women have no rights even under the law has been proved to be an erroneous one, majorly propounded by those ignorant of the rights provided under the law, the court said in a landmark judgement. The provisions of the Married Woman Property Act 1882 formed the basis of the pronouncement of the Chief Judge of Oyo State, Justice Munta Abimbola, on Friday in a property suit between a divorced couple, Toyin Arajulu, formerly known as Mrs Toyin James and he...

A Good Look At How Buhari Will Lose Saturday’s Election By Umar Sa’ad Hassan

INEC has put the final number of registered voters for the 2019 general election at 84 million with the North West leading the pack as usual with 20.2 million, followed by the South West with 16.3 million registered voters. The thumb-print columns on the ballot-papers have been compressed further by INEC to accommodate the very many parties duly registered and what that means in essence, is that there will be many more invalid votes than usual. We may witness a very high rate of rerun elections this year. Considering previous election turn-out, voter enthusiasm and current political climate in the 36 states, this is what is expected to happen in this Saturday’s Presidential election subject to it being free and fair. NORTH-WEST President Buhari will clinch the majority of v...
