'Oliseh's Youtube video was manipulated. NFF can't continue sacking coaches!' - Sports Minister

The Nigerian Sports and Youth Minister, Barrister Solomon Dalung who intervened and stopped the NFF from sacking embattled coach Sunday Oliseh after his 'insane' video rant has blasted the NFF for their incessant sacking of coaches in the past and has warned the football body that such practices won't be tolerated in the future.

 

In the long media briefing the minister also made a 'wild' assertion that Oliseh's YouTube rant was manipulated as the video was 'fluctuating' when he was watching the video. Lol!
 
According to Goal.com
“The decision to fix matches is the direct responsibility of the NFF not on the rectangular size of my table," Dalung said in a Tuesday media briefing in his Abuja office.. 
"I can tell you that they have already had problems with the Kaduna venue because the coach wants Port Harcourt, while the federation was insisting on Kaduna.
“When I waded into it appealing to them, the coach told me that the team is playing against many negative things but when I asked the leadership of the federation, they started the whole story about the crisis with the coach.
"But I told them they were drifting too far into the issue of sacking the coach since I was not interested in listening to their stories.
“We should be able to build a country where we should celebrate somebody that did well and sympathize with him if he fails, encouraging him to do better. I told the federation that overconfidence ruined the team.
“I told the federation that they don’t need to sack the coach because he lost a game. They brought the issue of YouTube complaining that the man embarrassed Nigerians and must apologise.
"But I told them that they should not judge him based on the YouTube because technology is now so sophisticated that a man can be manipulated having an affair with a woman when it is not true.
“Yes, I agree that I am a novice as they claimed but I looked at that video and the way it was fluctuating convinced that there was an act of manipulation. This is my own judgment and I am free to hold this opinion.
“I told them if they have not heard from Oliseh directly concerning those things on YouTube, they have to hold on until I speak to Oliseh. When I spoke to him, he did not indicate any bitterness throughout the 16 minutes the discussion lasted. He rather pointed at issues we have to address.
“I know very well the circumstances with which he trained the players and even NFF know.  I told the federation that based on the discussion, we have to look at how we can make progress out of it instead of sacking Oliseh now and bringing another person we will sack again when he loses against Egypt.
“After sacking another, we will then look at how we can sack the NFF because if we sack the coaches, we will face the people that employed them since they have also failed too. It is going to be a sack game which is what we should avoid. I told them it is natural to discipline coaches but not to sack them.”
 “If I will still be here when the elections into the board of the federations will be done, I am assuring Nigerians that nobody will pick his in-law or farmers’ association chairman as a member of a board.
“Those who are contesting must show their commitment, they must show how they will guide their federation to success.
“Most of all the problems we are having in the federations are linked to this. We have federations that are existing and cannot do anything except the ministry gives them money.
“The ministry even funds the ticket for a president [of a federation] to come for meetings. At the end of the day, you will discover that the federations have been reduced to a battle ground; nothing but fighting over relevance and resources.
“A man who was a leader of a farming group in the village will now be appointed a board member in a football federation.
"Immediately he arrives on the board, he considers himself as having been appointed into a big political office where he must be paid allowances and he must be given money, he has nothing to contribute but much is going to be spent on him.

Nigerian mental health nurse involved in sex slavery ring blacklisted by UK Nursing and Midwifery Council

A Nigerian mental health nurse who was convicted and sentenced for smuggling a young Nigerian woman into Britain to work as a sex slave under the threat of a black magic curse has been blacklisted by the British nursing authorities.


Florence Obadiaru, 50, was part of a gang of traffickers that raped a 23-year-old and subjected her to a ‘ju-ju’ death ritual during which she was told if she did not pay £40,000 she would die

Obadiaru and the other gang members then forced the woman to fly into Heathrow Airport in September 2011. The woman was told she would get a job in the UK so she could repay the debt, but instead she was kept at Obadiaru’s house and sexually assaulted.

The mental health nurse planned to transfer the woman to Italy to work as a sex slave, but the plot was thwarted by Italian officials, who noted her forged ID.

At the disciplinary hearing, Robert Barnwell, Chairman of the Nursery and Midwifery Council said:
"You have been convicted of conspiracy to commit a deplorable and horrific crime in which a young woman was trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation, and your conviction goes to the very core of the principles involved in nursing care. The public interest element in this case is high, and it is important to mark this case and send a clear message that a conviction of such a crime is unacceptable"

Obadiaru was jailed for two years in July 2014 after being convicted of trafficking the woman into the UK for sexual exploitation and arranging for her transfer to Italy.

Obadiaru, of Brockley, southeast London, had worked as a carer for ten years and had just finished her degree in nursing at Bedford University in Luton.
Her fellow gang members, Olusoji Oluwafemi and Johnson Olayinka, were jailed for six-and-a-half years and four-and-a-half years respectively in July 2014

Rapper, Eva Alordiah, slams ladies hating on her for sharing a video of herself kissing her fiance

Rapper Eva Alordiah took to her Instagram page to slam ladies that have attacked her for sharing a video of herself kissing her fiance, fiance, Ceaser. Photos from the kissing scene above. While reacting, Eva wrote
"I understand that none of you have ever had the yearning to Eat your boyfriends like I eat mine.

Quite a number of you do not even have boyfriends and from the tone in your many comments, GuuurrRl!! It is not hard to understand why!
I feel your pain Because even I have bled from the same vein
But unlike you I didn't go around pouring hate and the bitter kola taste of an impertinent spirit into every girl who had one, like I would palm oil into a frying pan.
Instead I saw her and wished it were me
I Said to God, I want that too!
And when, after many a great hits and misses with boys, like a learner on a tennis pitch who just can't quite hit the ball right, I finally met a man who swept the-single-and-searching-rug off my feet..
And made me say Yes I commit
And Lord Oh Lord, every time I see him I know that I gotta Eat!! And so I eat, when I want to shaNor be everytime the thing dey chook me like that.
Sometimes I like to eat fast, Sometimes I like to eat slow, Other times I am undecided which tempo to go.
Like traffic on third mainland bridge at 8.AM from Ikeja, Go - slow…no, stop for a while for no reason, Go fast…Go slow again.
Anyway,I don't know how long this feast would last, But it has been served me like the buffet at an Igbo Wedding reception with Food cooked by Isoko women and I intend to eat and eat and eat for as Long as the Food is in sight.
I pray God blesses you with someone who would make you eat them the F out! Say Amen, say it nauuuu you know you want to ����
Hey C @mr_ceezerleo
Thanks for letting me eat again. Tonight, the moon had a subtle glow about it. Daalu o?."
