Sai Masu Gida have thumbed up the transfer of the Super Eagles’ assistant skipper to England and predicted more opportunities for their players.

Kano Pillars have congratulated their former star Ahmed Musa who sealed a four year move to English champions, Leicester City ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Sai Masu Gida have predicted that the switch of the Super Eagles deputy captain to England will no doubt open the doors for more players of the side to play in the most exciting league in the world and other top clubs abroad.

Idris Malikawa,the club’s media officer, told Goal that Pillars are happy about the movement of Musa to Leicester City and are convinced that the striker will be successful in England just like he left his footprints in Europe since leaving Nigeria in 2010 as then record scorer in the domestic league.

“We are happy with the movement of Musa to England and we are very certain that he will continue to represent us well just like he did in Holland and Russia. We are glad that Musa passed through Pillars and that he has continued to move higher and higher and this won’t cease,” Malikawa told Goal.

“He was with us some weeks ago when he attended our training session before the game with Abia Warriors which we won handsomely for him. He has been a good ambassador of the club and his success at such a young age is a testament that he was a very good player when he was with us.”

Musa has won multiple titles in Nigeria with Kano Pillars and with Russian giants CSKA after joining them from Dutch side, VVV Venlo and he becomes the fourth signing of the summer for the English champions after the capture of goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler, defender Luis Hernandez and Nampalys Mendy.

Musa scored 13 goals and provided five assists for CSKA in 30 Russian Premier League games last season.

He has also scored 11 goals in 58 Nigeria appearances, two of them coming in the 3-2 loss to Argentina in the 2014 World Cup.

OPINION: Olamide Baddo, Please, Our Children Are Listening To Your Song!

NOTE:- This Article was not written by Loadedtunez!

Read below:-

I do not have children of mine yet. But, it is better I start fighting for my unborn children since they say prevention is better than cure. I am not a moralist neither do I have the right to judge anyone, but this is a sincere appeal to Olamide, a.k.a Baddo, from a showbiz fanatic and writer.

I know Nigerians are in love with Olamide. I am aware that crucifying him is like crucifying the average people on the street. He represents the street, and his grass to grace story has given hope to many youths.

However, if he continues to sing what he sings, we may need to forbid his music in our houses. Failure to do so means children will continue to become adults quickly, as his lyrics, in most cases, expose them to things we find disturbing for their ears.

image

Have you taken time to pay attention to the lyrics of most of Olamide’s songs? If you have forgotten all, ‘Who U Epp,’ is still fresh.

Anyone who thinks I am witch hunting the singer or I don’t like his face or music, is wrong. I am possibly his biggest fan. I grew up in Bariga, Lagos, the same humble neigbourhood from where Olamide conquered the music industry. I have experienced the struggle he’s experienced and the state of hopelessness he’s experienced.

So, if sharing the same root is not enough to convince you that I mean well for him, you could as well visit the Internet to read the lyrics of ‘Who U Epp’ and digest them.

Before I had the opportunity of listening to ‘Who U Epp’, the song had become a national anthem of some sort. When I finally listened to it, I fell in love too. How he effortless turns simple things to songs is amazing.

The beauty of the song made many Nigerian artistes to make a version or cover of it.Wande Coal, Phyno, Lil Kesh, Mz Kiss, Chink Ekun and a host of others did different versions. But I noticed that Olamide was unnecessarily vulgar. I say unnecessarily because I believe he could do without some lines and still make sense with the song.

In ‘Who U Epp,’ he said something like, ‘Ye se frapapa, kilo gbena papa. Kini nkan na, kini toti lapa.’ This is the most lewd part I noted in the song.

For those who do not understand the Yoruba dialect, what he said was scornful of the female s*xuality. The exact translation of the words is not worthy of being put in print.

In as much as music has no limitation and there is freedom of speech, we should be aware that music is a viable tool for education. What we put out there has a way of influencing the people who listen to it, especially the young ones. When we say violence is okay, demeaning women is okay and alcoholism is okay, it has a way of affecting the society at large. I mean the mindset of people who are looking up to such singers.

Though ‘raunchy’ lyrics seem to have become Olamide’s signature and it is working for him, for the sake of our children, he should apply caution. In other words, he should start using his music to educate and inspire the young ones. He did it with a song like ‘Melo Melo’ and a few others. So, it is something he can do.

In a recent conversation with a leading gospel DJ in Nigeria, Afojeare Campbell, aka DJ Gospoeralla, he compared music with soccer. According to him, music that came out of Nigeria in the past, taught people about life and it was inspirational in a way.

He said, ‘The likes of Segun Odegbami and Muda Lawal played real football in Nigeria, but there was no money to take home. Jay Jay Okocha came and made all the money. It is similar with the music of today and then. Those who started it, produced music that one could relate with. But they didn’t make so much money. The younger ones are just making noise nowadays; we have been pushing for good music and family entertainment.’

Signing Messi Is Impossible – Pep Guardiola Says

Pep Guardiola has ruled out Manchester City signing Barcelona star Lionel Messi during his tenure at the club. The former Barcelona and FC Bayern manager was officially unveiled as City’s new manager on Sunday, with around 6000 fans turning up to welcome him.

And it didn’t take long for one of the crowd to ask if Messi would be joining Guardiola at the Etihad.

“He is not a bad player, this guy! But I’m sorry Messi has to stay in Barcelona for the rest of his career.” Guardiola stated during his unveiling. He also promised to do his best at Man City.

“I proved myself in Barcelona and, after I proved myself in Germany, I wanted to prove myself in England,” Guardiola, who won 21 trophies during his time at Barcelona and Bayern, said.

“The players are coming to try every game, every weekend, so that the Manchester City people can be proud, and we will see what is our level to achieve our battles.

“I want the people who enjoy football to be proud of what we did. After that, maybe we will win our titles. I cannot do that alone. I need the players, the staff; we need our fans — without that, it is impossible.”

How JAMB will do this year admission

Plus-One School Portal

image

As was announced earlier today on
http://www.jamb.gov.ng , the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has finally
released the modalities for this year’s admission process, in other words, the
method of admission.
This new method uses a point system that is easy to understand, the whole
process is divided into main points as follows;
1) Before a candidate can seat be considered for screening, he/she must have
been given provisional admission by Jamb. The Jamb admission checker portal
is going to be opened soon for this process, so praying is all you can do now.

image

2) THE POINT SYSTEM:
This is the most critical part of the process. Jamb’s provisional admission no
longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith.
The points are evenly spread out between your O’level and Jamb results to
provide a level playing field for all.
In the first case, any candidate who submits only one result which contains
his/her relevant subjects already has 10points, the exam could be NECO,
WAEC, GCE etc, but any candidate who has 2 sittings only gets 2 points. So
this means that aspirants with only one result are at an advantage but only
just.
The next point grades fall into the O’level grades. Each grades has it’s
equivalent point, A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better your grades
the better your chances.
The next point is the UTME scores. Each score range has its equivalent point
which can be summarized thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points,
251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points. Each categories contains 5 Jamb
results per point added
3) It then comes down to the fact that fees will still be charged for screening,
it depends on the school as well.
4) Catchment and ELDS will still be used! Merit contains 45% of the total
candidates for a particular course, Catchment contains 35% and ELDS and
staff lists contains the rest.
5) Cutoff marks will be released by schools this year in the form of points and
not marks.

NANS Gives Kogi Gov 7 Days Ultimatum To Reopen State Varsity

image

 

The National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) on Saturday gave seven days ultimatum to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State to unconditionally reopen the state university in Anyigba.

The association gave the ultimatum in a statement signed by its National President, Tijani Shehu in Abuja.

The statement said the ultimatum would take effect from Monday, July 4 and called on the governor to immediately address their requests bothering on the state’s economy, welfare of Nigerian students of Kogi State origin and state workers.

It said the failure of the government to do so; the association student would stage a protest on the streets of the state capital, Lokoja.

It said the position of the association was based on the preliminary report from its Joint Campus Committee, Kogi State chapter.

The statement said that the association expressed displeasure on “perpetual refusal” to resolve the crisis that led to the continued closure of the university.

It said that the strike had kept the students at home for about three months, thereby, making most of them vulnerable to social vices and crimes.

“We also decried the refusal of Kogi State Government to continue the age long policy of bursary and scholarship payment to Kogi students even when we know the state has not been this buoyant in the last one year.

“It is our advocacy that the educational sector be accorded it rightful place in accordance to the UNESCO resolutions on educational development globally.

“Also of serious concern is the continue withholding of three state allocations plus bailout funds meant to ameliorate the long suffering workers whose children are already out of school”, it added.

The statement said that the association also condemned what it described as the crippling of the banking sector in the state as a result of the poor policy of the state government.

It said that the state government had directed all staff to use only designated banks (Access and Zenith Bank) in eventual payment of their arrears.

“This is leading to banks closing shops and leading to high retrenchment of staff, thereby worsening the state of already battered labour force and overriding their fundamental human right to basic freedom of choice”, it said.

It added that the association demanded the reversal of the state policy on restricted banking, which they said was “killing the one time viable sector with the negative consequences on our tiny economy”.

It stated that the association called for immediate commencement of disbursement of students’ scholarship and bursary as well as prompt payment of staff salaries as at when due.

“The National Secretariat hereby issues a seven days ultimatum with immediate effect from Monday July 4, on the governor to respond to our prayers.

“The governor should do the needful before we pass a vote of no confidence on his administration.

“We have resolve to start mobilising Nigerian students down for a total shutdown of Kogi economy to occupy the street of Lokoja in solidarity with the poor masses and civil servant”, it stated.
