Pogba can Look Lackadaisical but he’s a football genius’

The former Manchester united Defender wants to see more from the world cup star after he’s heroics in the world cup with country lifting the trophy for the second time.
Paul pogba can ‘’look a lit bit lackadaisical’’ , admits Gary pallister, but the Frenchman is a good footballer with brains, some consider him genius’’ with-match-winning quality for the Red devils. Ever since completing an 89 million pounds return to Old Trafford in the summer of 2016, the Midfield dynamo has seen his every move been analysed in every detail. His on-field performances have often been deemed to fall below standard expected of him, while his behaviour away from the field has drawn loads of debate as those on it, such inconsistency can’t be put on only the midfielder, with everything to be blamed on the whole team, but since the team solely depend on his creativity, the responsibility will be solely shift to his side.

EFCC: Buhari, APC Under Fire for Detention of Fayose

Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, has berated President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the detention of former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Fayose, who reported to the EFCC office in Abuja yesterday, has been kept on detention following his refusal to refund the fund he allegedly got from the Office of the National Security Adviser.

Omokri wondered why the anti-graft agency would detain Fayose while Gov. Ganduje, who was recently caught on camera allegedly taking bribe, was still moving freely.

He tweeted, EFCC DETAINS Fayose, but APC RETAINS Ganduje.

“That is Buhari’s Nigeria for you. If APC members forge certificates, they are escorted to the airport to escape, like Kemi Adeosun.

“But if you are a PDP member, the police will escort you to court, like Senator Adeleke.”

The orange-furred tabby, named “Baidian’er”, which means “white spot” in Chinese, was a stray that prowled around the Palace Museum in Beijing’s Forbidden City.
