To Achieve Is To Lose - The incredible story of Coach Amodu

Prologue



Football is the most watched, most played and most talked about game in the world.



But my beloved country India, which houses 1/6th of the world population, is woefully ignorant about this beautiful game.



We are content being the No-1 cricketing nation (a newly acquired status in the longer version of the game called the “Tests”) in the world; a game played by not more than a dozen odd countries.



To me football was a game played… Continue

Overcoming delicate stages of the Nigerian Revolution

We are about to enter a delicate stage of the Nigerian revolution and it calls for serious preparation to overcome all the negative tactics of the opposition. I didn’t say they are the enemy, but opposition because we all are going to the same destination. Even the opposition will marvel at the gains and success the new will offer them had they the capacity to seen it in advance. However, everywhere, to some is given the strength to drag others along even against their best judgments… Continue

OPEC’S UNGUIDED OPTIMISM

Last year, Abdalla S. El-Badri, Secretary General of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) dismissed fears about the imminent replacement of petroleum with biofuels and other alternative sources of energy like wind, solar, or even agricultural products like sugarcane. Appearing at a media project in Abuja to meet OPEC’s statutory responsibility to member nations, El-Badri said, “the global debate about seeking alternative to oil would not yield result because of the strategic… Continue

SOIL EROSION

Soil erosion is a complex process encompassing detachment, transport, and deposition, and is caused by wind, water, and physical disturbance. It reduces land productivity, challenges agricultural sustainability, and degrades soil, air, and water quality. Indirectly, erosion also degrades environmental quality through contaminants attached to the sediment and it interacts with the global carbon cycle and climate change processes. Sometimes, these impacts are so severe that they reduce quality of… Continue

We are in the third month of President Umaru Yar’Adua’s absence from office. No satisfactory explanation has been offered on his condition and whereabouts, and he has not transmitted to the National Assembly a letter informing the legislative house of his leave on health ground

JEUN KO KU (The glutton)

Never tired of wraps of fufu,

No wonder the neighbours call him ‘Mufu’

He is an uninvited guest at parties,

A gate crasher with so many fantasies-

For sweet smelling delicacies.



Hand him steaming bowl of Semo

He is in for a show.

Ask him if he’d prefer palmy or burukutu,

He’d prefer mixture of both.

Jeun Koku; A gifted eater, a greed breeder.



He cares not if people were watching,

Who is he to deter the dog of his bone?

At… Continue

Anambra Poll - Expect Hitch- Free Election.

With all that is going on, rigging will be difficult. We believe that none of… Continue

WHAT DOES THE BIG POWERS WANT OF NIGERIA?

The joint Statement on Nigeria by US, Britain, AU, and EU spoke of the need to keep Nigeria as a stabilizing force in the West African sub region. It vaguely spoke of the consequences of an insecure Nigeria in global security calculations and prefers that this renowned contributor to peacekeeping force in Africa continue to resolve internal issues peacefully in ‘democratic’ manner just as it envisages that the Anambra State election will prove that Nigerian democracy is superior after all. What… Continue
