Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, has lauded the government for the initiative to train the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members to go to war with the bandits.
Seun was engaged in a chat with HipTV where he applauded the government for making plans to sent the NYSC members to fight as he explained that it makes a lot of sense to him.
In his words: “That actually makes NYSC make sense to me. Since I’ve been hearing about the NYSC, it never made sense to me. That’s why I never strived to serve. We should all be willing to fight for our nation,”
“I think the Nigerian government cannot really take that step. Training young people for combat and giving them arms, I don’t think it will be quite safe for the government. Imagine a policeman trying to slap a combat-trained young man on the street. I don’t think they’ve thought it through. I welcome this idea. Train us. I’m 38 but I will join.”
He also shared his thoughts on the impasse of the federal government to ban Twitter as he said that the ban on Twitter a sign of weakness.
He said “It’s a complex situation. I’ve seen worse things on Twitter than what Buhari posted in terms of bullying and violent threats. Imagine what Trump was said as president. It was after he left they took down his Twitter page,”
“That being said, Twitter is a US company. For a foreign firm to take down the tweet of a sovereign state, it quite stretching from the point of view of our citizenship as Nigerians, regardless of our relationship with our president.Advertisement
“It is a slap on the face of the nation that Twitter took down the post of our president. The president’s response also is absolutely wrong, using his arbitrary power to take down Twitter when Nigerians don’t have their own option.
“And banning social media platforms doesn’t make sure. It doesn’t even work in China. Where they say Nigeria has gone to ask for help to block VPNs. You cannot block people from getting on any social media platform in this age.”
The Euro 2020, is set to kick off later today in the eternal city of Rome, Italy, where the Italian will welcome the Turkish national team.
It is set to be a feisty occasion, with most punters and pundits giving the game to the Italian side led by former Inter Milan and Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini. The Italian national team has for the last 3-years been on a rebuilding process since it failed to qualify for the 2018 world cup, the first team it will be failing to qualify for an International footballing competition in 60-years.

And for the first time in 60-years, they aren’t considered as one of the favorites to win the tournament which makes them a dark-house prospect, but definitely not a favourite to win. So the question is, who are the favourites to win this year’s Euro 2020.
Going by the performances of the teams over the last few years, off the back of the last European competition and the last world Cup 2018, some teams have been quite consistent, while some of the usuals (superpowers) are currently undergoing a rebuilding process or some sort of resurgence. Examples of the resurgents including, Germany and Italy who both have had a terrible outing in the last few international competition.
While the English are of high hopes this could finally be their time, after being pushed to the sidelines of world
English national team and football have been in the backwaters of international football for way too long. Despite its claim to be the inventors of the modern global game of football, been the first country to codify the rules of the game. It is one of the most unsuccessful teams in Europe despite having the best league in the world.
Since its World Cup triumph in 1966 on home soil winning the Jules Rene trophy on England is yet to come close again to any international footballing competition triumphs. It closest was at the last World Cup where it came back 3rd best in the competition, defeated in the semis by Croatia.
England has it all to do now, but its winning of the competition seems most unlikely, considering the other teams it is set to come up against. But expect them to at least reach the semi-finals this team around. Under Gareth Southgate, they seem to have an identity more than they’ve had in the last 7 competition and he has stayed true to his guts and trying to play to their natural inclinations, but building on a strong defensive unit. That’s why here at KOKO we’ve picked them as our 5 favourite team to win the Euro 2020.
The Die Mannschaft, the deadly German machines are they back this time truly to dominate. Die Mannschaft have had a terrible outing despite winning the 2014 World cup over the last couple of competitions both the Europe 2016 which it lost to France and the 2018 World Cup which it failed to make it out of its group losing to South Korea.
This is set to be Joachim Low last competition in-charge of the German national team, with the team currently going through another semi-rebuilding process, with quite a high influx of young talented players mixing with some experienced old heads They seem like a team on a mission. Players to look out for in this team, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Mario Goretzka, while Marco Reus finally will get his time in the sun. Germany is our 4th favourite team to win.
The Portuguese are the defending champions of the Europes, and yes they make it into one of our top favourites. Is it possible that they don’t make our top 5 favourites to win the competition considering that they’re the defending champions and also noting that they are the winners of the inaugural European nations league?… Come on of course they’re one of the favourites if they can make it out of the group stages, in the same group that has Germany, France and Hungary.
The Portuguese team has some of the best forward players in Europe at the moment, with the 5 times ballon D’or winner also in its ranks, a forward line that includes, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Joao Felix, Diogo Jota these guys are dangerous if they can get going.
2. Belgium: This is probably the most talented team at the competition but do they really have the stomach, guts, desire and drive to achieve this monumental feat. Well its up to them to step-up and achieve something exceptional with their golden generation.
This could probably be the last time they would all be together at a competition again. Over 90% of the squad are at the peak of their career and the best time for them to achieve true success and not just be another failed golden generation. Player to watch out for; Romelu Lukaku, Kevin Der Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Thibuat Courtois. They come in at the 2nd position.
France: This world defending champions are in our top list, favourites to win the competition with the bundle of talents the French squad is blessed with. They seem way more than capable to win it this time, with the type of frontline it will be going into this competition with. Didier Deschamp has recalled Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema back to the national team, which will have Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Wissam Ben Yedder, Kingsley Coman, with a midfield that will have the ever-visceral N’golo Kante, Paul Pogba and Juventus’s Adrien Rabiot to supply the frontline. They rank 1st, as our favourite to win the competition as long as they don’t get complacent and make it to the second, then its France all the way.

This comes after Luis Enrique’s side went into isolation after Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente tested positive for COVID-19. The Spanish nation Spain had to field an U21 side in their friendly against Lithuania, which they won 4-0.
However, the Spanish first-team players, who missed Tuesday’s warm-up match against Lithuania have gotten their first jabs at the Central Defense Hospital on Friday morning, June 11.
Busquets and Llorente have returned two negative tests each, permitting them to resume training, while Spain announced on Friday that there were no positive cases for a third consecutive day.
Speaking earlier this week, he said: ‘The (Spanish football federation) president (Luis Rubiales) asked about the possibility of a vaccine two months ago more or less, with the idea of doing the whole process when the squad list was given.
‘Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible. We accepted that, we didn’t complain, and now there are negotiations but it’s not certain still.
‘As they say, things at the palace go slow. If the president and the doctors consider it necessary we will do the best thing for the national team.
‘I would have liked it to have been done when it should have been done, after giving the list. We have to know that there could be side-effects.
‘We would like it to happen as soon as possible because there could be symptoms and issues, and that would really be bad for someone to have symptoms after the vaccine.’
Spain will face Sweden, Poland and Slovakia in their group stage games.
