  • Mourinho is lost for answers to Chelsea’s issues - Cape Times

    LONDON: It said much that Jose Mourinho seemed more disturbed by the question – and everything it implies – than the result. After the defending champions had lost their second game of the season in getting beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace, and just the second league game at Stamford Bridge in the Portuguese’s entire career, he was asked whether one of the first principles of his management has been eroded.

  • Nigeria: Buhari's Crusade Against Corruption, Other Vices

    THE unfortunate result of the unprecedented graft perpetuated by a number of shameless leaders in the last few decades are visible in the abject poverty of the masses and in the lack of access to basic facilities of life as well as insecurity of lives and properties. The monumental corruption, which in the past had led to the categorisation of our unfortunate country as one of the two most corrupt countries in the world, a situation that has earned us disdain and pity world-wide, must be frontally tackled by the President. The Movement for Nigeria's Total transformation is saddened by the confirmed reports of the crippling amount of Nigeria's commonwealth already snatched away by the cabal of excessively greedy and callous exploiters. It is disheartening to recall that Nigeria, which was one of the richest countries in terms of natural resources right from independence in 1960 to the early 1970s, has become one of the 25 poorest nations of the world according to the United Nations Development Programme's recent report.
