Amapakabo, Will Continue As Olympic Eagles Coach Not Salisu–NFF Chieftain




Imama Amapakabo is set to continue in his role as the chief coach of Nigeria’s Under-23 team – the Olympic Eagles despite earlier press statement from the Communication Department of the NFF on Thursday announcing that Salisu Yusuf had served out his one-year ban over bribery incident, completesports.com reports.

Yusuf was in charge of the team before he was caught on camera taking bribe from journalist posing as football agents, an action which earned him a year ban, prompting the NFF to draft in Imama to take over the side. 


However, a controversial press release on Thursday came from the federation’s Director of Communication, Ademola Olajire suggesting what might have been a reinstatement of Yusuf.

But a top NFF board member in an exclusive chat with Complete Sports revealed that there was nothing like reinstatement of Salisu Yusuf.

He said: “It’s not the NFF [board] that will review the situation. And definitely for Imama [Amapakabo] doing well, the Technical Commitee will surely confirm him to continue with the U-23.


“For your information, even the WAFU Cup, NFF plans to use largely the U-23s so as to prepare the team, and it is Imama that was asked to submit the list and he has done so.”

Amapakabo on Tuesday led led the Olympic Eagles to qualify for the 2019 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations which will take place in Egypt in November after spanking Sudan 5-0 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, and winning it 5-1 on aggregate.

Nigerian comedian Ayodeji Makun, popularly known as AY has expressed concerns over the huge expectations of people seeking assistant from the rich without considering the effect of such on them.

The comic, who took to his instagram handle @aycomedian, lamented on how it affect the rich while pointed out how everyone expects you to help them once you have some money.

The comedian wrote:
“From not wanting to disappoint anybody, people consistently expects u to PLEASE everyone.

“It is only in Nigeria your 1Million Naira will attract 20 friends & family with 100k problems each?Why do they always fail to understand that if you give everybody, you will become BROKE too?

“People around you should understand that you cannot please everyone all the time.

“It usually ends up being a terrible move whenever you try to do that amongst people who fails to understand, or lack appreciation for even the little you do.

“We can only appreciate the sermon of ‘Give and it will come back to you…’ when you are in position to give.

“There’s always going to be someone disappointed, so you might as well make yourself happy and Be You. ‘Givers never lack’ no mean say make you lack sense.

Reality film on life in Chibok wins US award

Daughters of Chibok
Daughters of Chibok, a virtual reality documentary of life in Chibok without the remaining 112 kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls, has won an award in the United States, courtesy of the Venice Film Festival.

The film, produced jointly by a film making firm, VR360 Stories, and a Yola-based regional nongovernmental organisation, the Northeast Humanitarian Hub, portrays life in Chibok through the home of a mother, Yana, who regularly washes the clothes of her kidnapped daughter in the wishful expectation of the return of the daughter.

The virtual reality mode of Daughters of Chibok differentiates it from the more widely known regular documentary productions in the sense of its capacity to virtually take the viewer from wherever he is to the depicted scenes which he sees as vividly as if he were there.

The film had been shown at different times to different audiences earlier this year in Nigerian cities, including Yola where it was shown in August to journalists and civil society leaders.

Daughters of Chibok portrays the misery of life in Chibok without the missing girls and appeals to the sensibilities of relevant authorities on the need to bring the girls back.

The Chief Executive of VR360 Stories and producer of the film, Joel Benson, who received the Venice Film Festival award in the US on Saturday night, said in a video clip on the event, that he dedicated the award to the woman in the story, Yana.

He said it was a deserving honour to her for sharing her story with him, and that because of the award, “the world will hear of Chibok and remember the girls still in captivity.”

You wanna know about a person? Just look up their SM pages & you’d get a pretty close picture of whom you’re dealing with.

“I agree I’m not exactly social media compliant but I’m also guilty of sometimes putting more than I ought to have out there thereby subjecting myself to being misinterpreted, misquoted, misunderstood and highly misjudged and that’s why it was extremely difficult for me to keep my pregnancy all to myself.”

World football governing body, FIFA has unveiled the official emblem for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be hosted by Qatar in 2020

The Arab country is getting set to give the world a taste of something almost entirely different as the countdown draws closer.

After about 10 to 15 minutes, remove your feet and gently exfoliate, then pat dry with a clean towel.



2. Apply heel balm: One of the easiest and most effective solutions to how to heal cracked heels is using all-natural heel balm. Simply massage the balm into cracked skin that's clean and dry, ideally immediately after a foot soak. Be sure to wear socks after applying.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE GETTING MARRIED





• Respect. Not that love is not important. But there are many cases where couples choose to stay together even though the love had died long before. Sometimes to support their children till they grow up, or to attain financial security. Disrespect is irreparable.
• Work as a team: You found that after few years, both of you have changed. Now more than ever, you need to work as a team. It is so hard to have a ship with two captains. Sometimes let her be in control and sometime let him lead. At the end of the day you want to arrive safely to the other side.

• Be friends: One day, many years from now, when the cyclone of emotion, intimacy, kids growing and work routines settle down, you’ll look back at your marriage path and reflect. You will have a lot of time to spend together. If the hours passed as eternity and you don’t have anything to say, then you haven’t been friends all your life. Friendship is the glue that stick the couple together. All the way to the end.
• Patience… Patience… and more Patience: When you face any obstacles just remember that time mends all problems. So take a deep breath in…
• Don’t take things for granted: There are ups and downs in any marriage. Sometimes you feel you married the perfect partner and sometimes you perceived them as partner from hell. It is always work in progress. So, celebrate the good time and be ready for the hardships.




•comparism: The following things may happen to you after few years of marriage: You’re having dinner with your partner with another couple who look like the Romeo and Juliet of the modern day. They look passionately at each other and touch hands as if it’s their first time. She explicates her man as the perfect husband. And he talks about her as the trophy wife. At your side of the table: Sigh… look at each other… why can’t my partner be like that? Be careful, what you had witnessed might be a show. Like the one you watch at the cinema. It had start and end time. Some people are good at acting in public.

TITLE: TRENDING NOSE PIERCING



Nose piercing is the piercing of the skin or cartilage which forms any part of the nose, normally for the purpose of wearing jewelry, called a nose-jewel. Among the different varieties of nose piercings, the nostril piercing is the most common. Nose piercing is the third most common variety of piercing after earlobe piercing and tongue piercing. Nose piercings are done by women only, however the spread of this fashion has resulted in both men and women having nostril piercings in the wider world. 


Several different types of nostril rings are found. Among the most popular are the loop, the stud with an L-bar closure, the stud with a ball closure, and the stud with a flat backing. Outside of the left part of the body is the preferred position of the piercing. This is followed by some orthodox folk also because Ayurvedic medicine associates this location with the female reproductive organs.
