Sunday Dare Offers Scholarships To Kwara Blue-Eyed Girls

Sunday Dare Offers Scholarships To Kwara Blue-Eyed Girls
According to The PUNCH, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has offered scholarships to the children of a poor blue-eyed mother, Risikat Azeez, who was dumped by her husband, Abdul-Wasiu Omo-Dada.

The PUNCH recently released an exclusive video of Risikat, who said her husband abandoned her and two daughters because of the colour of their eyes.

Thereafter, concerned Nigerians offered to help the 30-year-old mother of two.

The minister’s Personal Assistant, Grassroots, Shola Kolawole, visited the family on Saturday on behalf of his boss, who also offered a cash gift to the family.

“Her story was compelling and pitiable. Two young kids and mother abandoned by the husband through no fault of theirs. No kid should be denied education and a chance to live. I was moved by compassion. As an Ogbomoso indigene, they live next door to us in Ilorin. They are my neighbours. The Bible admonishes that we should love our neighbours that we see,”
Dare said.

Dare’s intervention comes as cheery news for Risikat and her kids, who had never been to school,

 “It’s my desire for my kids to be educated because my parents sent me to school within the limit of their capacity, which is not even adequate for me because I can’t speak (English). But it is my desire for my children to be well-educated if I have the funds and if God enables me.

“My first daughter, who is almost five years old, has never attended a school before, but I will like them to be educated,”
Risikat said.

Presidency should return to the south in 2023 - Governor El-Rufai

Presidency should return to the south in 2023 - Governor El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai has said that the next President of Nigeria should come from the Southern region of the country. 

 

The Kaduna state Governor who said this in an interview with BBC Hausa on Saturday August 8, added that he won't be supporting any northerner to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

 

El-Rufai further stated that though the idea of rotating the presidency may not be constitutional, it is based on the country’s political arrangement.

 

He said; 

 

“In Nigerian politics, there is a system of rotation, in which everyone agrees that if the north rules for eight years, the south will rule for eight years. 

“That is why I came out and said that after President Buhari has been in office for eight years, no northerner should run for office. Let the Southerners also have eight years.

“If you look at how I am, I don’t take anyone to work with me for the zone he came from. The eligibility I look at is if who is entrusted to the public will hold it properly.

“It has been said that I have loved the presidency since I was a minister in the FCT. This is nonsense. I do not want the Nigerian presidency. God gives power, whether you like it or not, if He wants it, He will give it to you, but I have never sought the presidency of Nigeria, no one can say I have ever sought it.”

Juventus Sack Head Coach, Maurizio Sarri After Champions League Exit

Juventus Sack Head Coach, Maurizio Sarri After Champions League Exit

Juventus have sacked head coach Maurizio Sarri a day after being knocked out of the Champions League in the last-16 stage to Lyon, Sky Sports reports.

The former Chelsea and Napoli boss only took charge of Juventus in June last year, signing a three-year contract at the time, and led the side to a ninth consecutive Serie A title last month.

But, Juve crashed out of the Champions League on Friday, going out on away goals after drawing 2-2 on aggregate.

It is the first time Juventus have failed to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League since 2015/16 under Massimiliano Allegri.

Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi is among the front-runners to replace Sarri after guiding his team to fourth in the table and Champions League qualification for the first time in 13 years.

Inzaghi, whose contract at Lazio is up next summer, was in contention for the Juve job a year ago before the club appointed Sarri.

According to Sky in Italy, Lazio president Claudio Lotito would not stand in Inzaghi's way should he wish to leave but would ask for a fee to let him go.
Mauricio Pochettino, who has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham in November last year, has also been linked with the role.

Pochettino told Sky Sports News in May: "I love England. My idea is to keep living in London but at the same time, I am open to different countries, to listen to see what happens."

Despite winning the league, Sarri has been under pressure as Juventus managed their lowest points total of the last nine title-winning seasons, finishing just one point above Inter Milan.

Speaking after Friday's game against Lyon, Juve president Andrea Agnelli told Sky in Italy: "This season's balance is bittersweet, we had a great result winning the ninth championship, but the performance in the Champions League has been disappointing for everyone.

"The Champions League is not a dream, it's an objective. We need to be disappointed to exit the competition like this, we will take a few days to evaluate how to restart with fresh enthusiasm.

"We have a few goals that need to be met, both domestically and internationally. We will need to make a few evaluations to understand how to start the next season with the will to work and win on any pitch.

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, 36, becomes world's 3rd Centibillionaire

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, 36, has become the third centibillionaire in the World.

 

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Zuckerberg’s fortune has topped $100bn for the first time, placing him among members of the world’s centibillionaires' club, after Facebook’s shares surged by 6% on investor optimism over the news the company plans to launch Instagram Reels, a rival to the Chinese video-sharing application TikTok.

 

Facebook announced the US rollout of Instagram Reels after US President Donald Trump banned US companies from dealing with ByteDance and Tencent, the Chinese owners of TikTok and the WeChat messaging service. 

 

The 36-year old media magnate has now joined Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder, and Bill Gates, Microsoft’s founder, as the only people who have centibillionaire status, the Bloomberg Billionaires Index said.

 

Mark Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook in 2004 and owns a 13% stake in the company, gained about US$22 billion this year.
