Rumours on many social media sites were that Wole Soyinka had passed on. But this news has been confirmed to be untrue as the Nobel prize winner is hale and hearty.
In fact PM news can confirm that he is presently in Los Angeles, United States, promoting his new book titled ”Chronicles From the Land of the Happiest People on Earth.” Wole Soyinka says this new latest book is his gift to Nigeria.
The Nigerian President in his Independence Day broadcast ordered the conditional lifting of the ban on Twitter only if Twitter meets the following conditions;
National Security and Cohesion; Registration,
Physical presence and Representation;
President Buhari reinstated why the ban was activated; that many people used the platform to disseminate fake news and hate speech, he also noted that there were so many legitimate things Twitter was used for such as socialization and business.
It will be interesting to see when and if Twitter meets all the conditions.
However the president has raised hope that the issues involving the ban of Twitter in Nigeria will soon be resolved.
FIFA says Ahmed Musa has played 98 times for Nigeria , Nigerian Football Federation said 100…., And the winner is… FIFA.
NFF made the claim after Nigeria’s 2-1 win over Cape Verde in a World cup qualifier played on September 7th.
Actually, Ahmed Musa had played 100 matches for the Super Eagles but two of those matches were not recognized by FIFA. One was a world cup qualifying game between Nigeria and Algeria in 2018 which ended 1-1, but the match was awarded to Algeria because Nigeria fielded an ineligible player. The second was a friendly against togo in 2017 in which Nigeria won 3-0 but the game was declared unofficial by FIFA.
However the NFF after admitting their error said Ahmed Musa will complete his 100 caps when he features in the home and away matches against the Central African Republic in October.
