Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Signs New Improved Manchester United Deal

Manchester United have put their faith in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by handing him a new three-year contract.

The Norwegian who took over from Jose Mourinho in 2018, will stay at Old Trafford until at least 2024, with the option of an extra year.

It is a big statement from United, who have also shown backing in the transfer market with the £73million signing of Jadon Sancho on Friday.

Solskjaer delivered a second-placed finish in the Premier League last season, briefly challenging runaway leaders Manchester City, while also losing the Europa League final to Villarreal, but has yet to deliver any silverware in his two and a half seasons in charge. But he is confident he can deliver trophies to Old Trafford.


He said on the club’s official website: “Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract. It is an exciting time for Manchester United, we have built a squad with a good balance of youth and experienced players that are hungry for success.

“I have a fantastic coaching team around me, and we are all ready to take that next step on our journey. Manchester United wants to be winning the biggest and best trophies and that’s what we are all striving for. We have improved, both on and off the pitch, and that will continue over the coming seasons. I can’t wait to get out in front of a packed Old Trafford and get this campaign started.”

The former United striker initially took over on an interim basis in December 2018 following the dismissal of Mourinho and forced his way into a permanent role with a fine run of results.

Progress has been steady in his two full seasons in charge, following up a third-placed finish in 2019-20 with a runners’-up spot last season, but a trophy still eludes him after a mixed record in cup competitions.

However, the United hierarchy still believe he is the right man to deliver success to the club.

“Ole and his staff have worked tirelessly putting the foundations in place for long-term success on the pitch,” chief executive Ed Woodward said.

“The results of that have become increasingly visible over the past two seasons and we are all looking forward to seeing this exciting team develop further in the years ahead.

“What is especially pleasing is the way this progress has been achieved with a blend of young, homegrown talent and top-class recruits, playing attacking football in the best traditions of Manchester United. We are more confident than ever that, under Ole’s leadership, we are heading in the right direction.”

Ex-banker, wife and mother-in-law bag 60 years jailterm for stealing depositors’ fund

 Ex-banker, wife and mother-in-law bag 60 years jailterm for stealing depositors? fund

A former bank cashier, Ebenezer Adeolu Alonge alongside his wife, Isakunle Olamide Oyinlola and his mother-in-law, Isakunle Eunice Moradeke were on Friday, July 23, convicted and sentenced to Sixty (60) years imprisonment by Justice Adekanye Ogunmoye of Ekiti State High Court, Ado Ekiti on a 12-count charge of conspiracy and stealing contrary to section 390(9) of the Criminal Code Laws Cap 16 Laws of Ekiti State, 2012 brought against them by the Ibadan Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Justice Ogunmoye, in his judgment, ruled that the prosecution team led by Abdulrasheed Lanre Suleiman proved their case beyond reasonable doubt and that the convicts had failed to extricate themselves from the self-evidenced proofs before the court.

EFCC, in the course of the trial, called two witnesses and tendered several exhibits to prove their case.

The convicts were found guilty on all twelve count charges and sentenced to five years on each count. The cumulative sixty years prison terms will, however, run concurrently.

A statement released by the antigraft agency says the journey to the dock started when the illicit activities of Ebenezer got exposed through a petition to the EFCC from one of the new generation banks alleging that one of her staff by the name Ebenezer Adeolu Alonge was involved in fraudulent activities. It was alleged that sometime in February 2020 the bank received a complaint concerning the financial impropriety of the sum of N62, 400.00 in respect of a customer’s account.

According to the petitioner, on February 15, 2017, a customer lodged the said sum into her account but the transaction could not be traced in the customer’s account even after the customer presented a copy of the slip signed by Alonge. The statement said in the course of the investigation, the said transaction was allegedly traced to Ebenezer Alonge’s wife’s account. Further investigation, however, revealed that there was a turnover of over N21, 000,000.00 (Twenty-One Million Naira) as a deposit from other customers in his wife’s account. Also, it was alleged that other sums were traced to his mother-in-law’s account, who was also a beneficiary of the fraudulent act.

Delivering judgement on the case on Friday, July 23, the court also ordered Alonge to forfeit his house which shall be sold and the proceeds used to restitute the bank.

Oyedepo’s Living Faith Church Paid Graduate Pastors N38,000 Monthly – Sacked Pastor Claims

Oyedepo

Another pastor, who was among the 40 recently sacked pastors by the Bishop David Oyedepo’s Living Faith Church, has explained how pastors who were graduates got N38,000 as salaries.

The pastor noted that the gross salary was N53,000 but they were paid N38,000 as the rest was supposed to cover for pension and housing allowance.

The victim, who preferred to speak on condition of anonymity, noted that the money deducted for pensions was not even remitted to their bank accounts until their sack and outrage went viral.

He said, “Oyedepo and his senior Pastors knew they would sack us before employing us. That was why they gave us employment on probation. Someone went online to post lies in support of the church that the recently sacked pastors were being paid N80,000 and house rent of N150,000.


“I will just say a little here; no employed pastor was paid N80,000 in the church. The highest salary is for degree holders which is N53,000 and, this N53,000 is not the net salary at the end of the month. The pastor will only receive N38,000 at the end of the month; N6,000 goes to the pension account and N9,000 goes to house rent account.

“It is very funny that the pastors, we honoured, could keep the money they removed from our salaries in their personal bank accounts for long without paying into our pension accounts. It was when they sacked us that they started paying into the pension accounts. Imagine that.

His comment followed a revelation by Peter Godwin, a former pastor of the church who was also affected by the sack for not generating enough money in his branch.

Godwin in a trending video said he was employed on the 28th of August 2020.
He claimed he was invited with about 40 colleagues by the state pastor on July 1, 2021, and were sacked over low income in their branches.


Godwin, however, failed to mention the name of the state.

He had said, “Actually, by the special grace of God, our father in this great assembly, Living Faith Church received a mandate from the Lord to plant 10,000 churches in Nigeria and by the special grace of God, I was privileged to be one of the pastors that were employed on the 28th of August, 2020, that was last year.

“So after that, I started working, engaging myself in the work of the Lord. I tried my possible best to make sure I win souls for Christ but unfortunately, on the 1st of July, I received a call that the state pastor wants to see me, so I thought I was the only one. I was surprised, so I went to his office.

“When I got there, I saw other pastors too, over 40 of them, so I joined them. A few minutes later, we were issued a letter. I opened the content of the letter to see what was there and I saw that it was a sack letter.”

You ‘Won’t’ Believe What Wole Soyinka Said About Pastor TB Joshua (Full Details)

The Lagos State government has charged Professor Wole Soyinka, one of the most recognized professors at the local and international level, over the 2014 hostel collapse at his church.

Statistics showed that roughly 116 persons and 84 of them South Africans were murdered in the collapse of SCOAN’s buildings in Lagos, which had been neglected by the Government.

Wole Soyinka, who made this known in Abuja Saturday, in the book he had read and signed on, “The Trumpet in the Academy” and “Happiest People’s Chronicles on earth,” organized by the Bookshop of Rovenheights and the Orisun Gallery.

Wole Soyinka remarked with tremendous courage that the Pastor Joshua, known as the TB, was bold enough to proclaim that the church was attacked by an odd plane despite all their knowledge of the reality.

He noted that Nigeria was so strongly religious that the crimes to be punished normally were considered an act of God that was very wicked.

He also mentioned another plane some years ago, when pilgrims’ plane crashed to Mecca in Nigeria but, instead, they determined that the governments had to take action and look at it, it was Allah’s act and that nobody had been brought to trial.

“There are those for whom the call is only a hiding place because of our extraordinary veneration for the priesthood in our country. It does not matter what faith it is, whether Muslim, Christian, worshiper of Orisa, Buddhists, whatever it is.” Somehow, religion is nearly national and thus it doesn’t matter who it is or what it is doing. He can get a lot away. Look at TB Joshua, for example, whose congregation fell in whichever chapel it is in Lagos. Not only the Nigerians, nearly 200 or 300. They arrived from South Africa and so on.

“He is someone who should have been prosecuted with carelessness for failing to comply with the legislation necessary to build public institutions. The next thing he said was, yeah, that was an air force fighter that ran about and buried mankind. Has he been tried until today?

House Invasion: Order Buhari And DSS To Pay Me N5.5bn In Damages – Igboho Begs Court

The embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has asked the Federal High Court in Ibadan to compel the Attorney General of the Federation and the Department of State Services to pay him N5bn in damages over the invasion of his house in the wee hours of July 1 by DSS operatives.


Igboho, who is currently in detention in Benin Republic, filed the suit on Friday through his counsel, Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN). He is, in the suit, contending that the invasion of his house in the Soka area of Ibadan, during which DSS operatives gunned down two of his associates and arrested 12 others, was not only malicious but also amounted to a violation of his fundamental human rights.

Igboho told the court that the DSS operatives stormed his residence at about 1am on July 1 and “without announcing who they were or asking the applicant (Igboho) to open his gate, shot their way through, killing two people, including an elderly Imam doing Tahjud (vigil), shooting at cars, thereby destroying them and not sparing animals, like cats and dogs in total violation of the intendments of the fundamental human rights provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 and the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights Act.”
He said for two hours, the DSS operatives shot through the ceiling and roof of his house, thereby depriving him “the quiet enjoyment of his house for the period of the armed invasion of the said property.”


The activist, through the SAN, is urging the court to declare that the AGF and the DSS, through the midnight operation, violated his right and trampled on the nation’s constitution. He wants the court to order the defendants to return his personal belongings, which they allegedly carted away during the operations.

He listed the items to include N2m cash, €1,000, travel documents belonging to him and his family members, gold jewellery and wristwatches, a I-Phone 12 mobile phone, Samsung mobile phone, and other items yet to be ascertained.
For the invasion, Igboho, through his lawyer, is urging the court to compel the AGF, the DSS and the DSS DG to also pay him N500m to cover for the damage done to his cars and house and another N5bn as “exemplary and/or aggravated damages for breaching the applicant’s fundamental rights in the course of the illegal and malicious invasion of his residence.”


He also wants the court to compel the defendants to tender a public apology to him, to be published in two major national dailies. In addition, the embattled Yoruba Nation agitator wants the court to declare that he has “unquestionable and inalienable fundamental right to peacefully campaign and seek for self-determination of Yoruba tribe in Nigeria and lobby the legislature to amend the 1999 Constitution.”

He wants the court to declare that it is illegal for the DSS and the AGF to be hunting him with gun, with a view to arresting him because he is “propagating his belief in association with other like minds to create a Yoruba Nation/Oduduwa Republic for his indigenous Yoruba people.”
He also wants the court to restrain the defendants and their agents from further harassing him or causing his bank accounts to be frozen. Meanwhile, the court is yet to fix a date for the hearing of the suit.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Igbo, he stated that he ended his own political ambition after he was asked to compromise on his value.

He said, “I tried doing politics but what I was required to compromise was almost like selling your soul. I’m principled. I decided that there are different positions you can play on a field but the end result is to score goals.”

He added that “I decided to play my part, remaining a social critic, tell what needs to be told. It’s my advocacy. The day my people summon me to serve, then I come out. If there’s a jungle on earth, it’s Anambra politics. It’s a different game.”

“Everyone wants to lead rather than be led. Everyone has money. At the end of the day, it’s the same circle. I’m not small-minded. I know that if I foray into politics, it’s either it consumes me or I get what I want.”

“But I don’t want to be desperate or have a Godfather play me around like a puppet. I don’t want to stain myself,”

Why Nigeria cannot continue to remain together – Wole Soyinka speaks

Wole-Soyinka

Wole Soyinka, the Nigerian Nobel laureate, has again said that there is no hope of Nigeria continuing together as one nation if the Federal Government fails to do the needful.

According to the foremost playwright, Nigeria cannot continue as one country unless it is decentralised as a matter of urgency.

Asked during an interview with Arise TV if he thinks that Nigeria can continue as one, Soyinka said, “Not if it continues this way. Not if it fails to decentralise. Some people use the word restructure, some people use the word…whatever. Not if it fails to decentralise.

“If Nigeria fails to decentralise and I mean, decentralise as fast as possible, manifestly not rhetoric, then Nigeria cannot stay together.

“Again this is not Wole Soyinka saying this. Generals have said it. Everybody has said; ex-heads of state have said it; analysts have said; economists have said it and that’s what is happening to the people on the streets; that’s why they’re moving; that’s why they’re demonstrating; that’s why they’re defying even threats from the police; from the government ‘if you demonstrate, you’re traitors, we’ll deal with you…we’ll speak to you in language which you’ll understand’.

“It doesn’t work with anybody any longer. Because the nation is on a suicide slide and the people feel that they do not deserve that kind of suicidal plunge and they have the right to say ‘sorry o, I’m getting out of this plane before it nose-dives.”
