AFCON 2013: NIGERIA PETITIONS CAF OVER POOR OFFICIATING


Asides the not-too-impressive performance of the Super Eagles since the whole African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament started, the officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) think Nigeria has been a victim of unfair refeering decisions.

Citing the two games played so far, (against Burkina Faso and Zambia), they claim the bookings were not only too much but Ogenyi Onazi's red card was uncalled for.

They have therefore penned their complaints to CAF and even requested for fairer treatment.
Did NFF go overboard? Or was writing the petition right and timely?

FUNKE AKINDELE AND YAW TO RAISE THE BAR


Successful yoruba actress, Funke Akindele-Oloyede and popular OAP Steve Onu, also known as Yaw are becoming some brands' choice comperes. And if anyone has noticed, they anchored many events last year and now this year they will hopefully anchor more, but beyond that, the talented pair have something up their sleeves.

Few weeks after Yaw had the premiere of his new TV sitcom called – 'Yaw's n' Myn', at the Silverbird Cinemas, the producer and actor has actor is out with another creative programme.

Titled 'The Bar', the 2-man play which also stars Funke Akindele-Oloyede will be staged at Muson Center, Onikan on 6th March, 2013. Billed to be present at the show are top music acts like Iyanya, MI as well as comedians.

According to Yaw, the play is not your conventional comedy show but, it's more of a 'satire. "I believe a satire should be like a rubber sword. It doesn't pierce like a real sword would; but the person it touches will definitely feel the impact.

The audience should expect twists and turns in the performances, suggestive innuendos and plenty of meanings in between the lines of the script. But they should also expect to laugh, because at the end of the day, it is comedy." He affirmed.

But what exactly is behind the name Code 55? "People say there is a mystery about me and they say the same thing about Stella. But trust me, maybe you have to buy a decoder before you can decode who we are. For the 55, I was born 31 July and Stella is 24 April. If you add 31 and 24, you will get 55″. Now that's a cool one, don't you think? I love the idea behind it." Daniel Ademinokan who was once married to Doris Simeon explained.

PLEASE HELP FUNKE BADRU


"Give freely to the world these gifts of love and compassion. Do not concern yourself with how much you receive in return, just know in your heart it will be returned."
― Steve Maraboli
 
Funke Badru a 21 year old ex student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic was in july, 2011 diagnosed in the University College hospital (UCH) Ibadan of having a tumour disturbing the function of the eyes causing symptoms like double vision. She was placed on drugs for a few weeks and on september 3rd 2011, she was rushed to the hospital. On september 11, she was rolled in for surgery, her first surgery. That would have been the end of it, but one Doctor Akinbo made a wrong cut. Her consultant, Professor Malomo recommended another surgery, but for fear that it might not be a success, she declined. She remained in the hospital for about three months where her condition got worse and she was admitted again on November 10. Because of the delay, infection had set in and a skull x-ray revealed that some bones in her head were now infected. At this stage, the wound had started to emit a discharge with pungent odour.

The doctors then detected that there was still a tumour close to the brain and for fear of risk, she was referred to Eko Hospital, Ikeja for radiotherapy (the equipment in UCH were faulty at the time).
She spent another 3 months there. This whole process has gulped about 3.5 million naira raised mostly from family and friends. Now, she requires TWO MILLION for final treatment which would include removal of the tumour and Cosmetic surgery to fix the bone problem.She has dropped out of school due to this illness. She sought financial aid from the Ogun State government and Ogun state Ministry of Health, but got no positive response.

She's however calling on everyone out there to help her raise the money so she could become healthy again and go back to school. Your widow's mite will go a long way.
