LaLiga: El Clasico still best game in football without Messi – Benzema

Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, has insisted that the El Clasico is still the best game in club football, despite Lionel Messi’s departure from Barcelona.

Drama as PDP Reps stage walkout from plenary over Twitter ban

Some lawmakers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday staged a walkout during plenary at the House of Representatives.

The Speaker, however, cited part of the Standing Orders of the House stating that a matter that had been concluded by the parliament cannot be revisited for a debate.
