Following the emergence of Prof Charles Soludo as Governor-elect of Anambra State, the Southern Governors’ Forum, SGF, has stated that his wealth of experience as a consummate economist will be of immense benefits to the people of the state and the country
According to the Chairman of the forum and Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, with Soludo set join the SGF, the efforts of the governors towards economic integration and enhanced socio-economic relationship in the region will be boosted in many ways.
Akeredolu stated this in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo where he congratulated the Anambra Prof Soludo over his victory at last Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
Akeredolu also commended the people of Anambra State for trooping out and their resolve to exercise their franchise in spite of the security challenges in the state.
The governor, however, urged the ex-governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN to brace up for the herculean job ahead as he emphasised that the security and economic challenges in the Southern part of the country and the nation at large require joint efforts and unalloyed commitment.
“No doubt, we will be happy to explore the experience of the Governor-elect, as it relates to the economy and also help in our efforts to keep the people of the Southern Nigeria safe.
“Prof Soludo’s experience as a consummate economist will be of great asset to the good people of Anambra, Southern Governors’ Forum and indeed the entire country.
“On behalf of my colleagues in the SGF, I congratulate Prof. Soludo and wish him the best as he prepares for the Herculean task ahead.”
Imo govt gives old Owerri Timber market traders four weeks ultimatum
The Imo State Government has given traders at the old Owerri Timber market (Ogba Osisi) Wetheral road, a four-week ultimatum to leave.
The ultimatum was given on Monday through the General Manager of the Owerri Capital Development Authority (OCDA), Engr. Francis Onyedikachi Chukwu, during a routine inspection with his team.
Chukwu said the Imo State Government mapped out a permanent site for the traders at Naze Timber market, Owerri North LGA.
He said their stay at the old Owerri Timber market is causing obstruction to the master plan of the capital city.
The GM pleaded with them to adhere to the order, as failure to move in the next one month will amount to them losing their wares.
OCDA said that it was imperative for government to do the needful to sanitize the state and avert danger to life and property.
EPL: What Ralf Rangnick said after becoming Man United manager
Manchester United’s new interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has expressed happiness after joining the club.
DAILY POST reports that Man United officially announced Rangnick as their new interim manager on Monday.
Rangnick’s appointment comes less than 24 hours after Man United played a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in a Premier League tie on Sunday evening.
Reacting to his appointment, Rangnick, said his efforts for the next six months at Old Trafford will be on helping Man United players fulfill their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.
“I am excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club,” Rangnick told the club’s official website.
“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.
“Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis.”
EPL: Ex-Chelsea assistant coach questions Tuchel’s late substitutions against Man United
Former Chelsea assistant manager Jody Morris has questioned Thomas Tuchel’s use of his substitutes during their draw with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Chelsea managed a 1-1 draw with Manchester United in the Premier League clash on Sunday with Jadon Sancho pouncing on a poor touch from Jorginho to put the visitors ahead.
Jorginho then made amends for his blunder 20 minutes later when he equalised for Chelsea from the spot.
Tuchel waited until the 78th minute to introduce the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic from the bench.
And Morris, who was Frank Lampard’s assistant, criticised the Blues boss, insisting that the German could have made his substitutions earlier and killed the game off.
He told Stadium Astro: “From a fan’s perspective, I would definitely have liked a couple if not all three changes at the top end of the pitch a lot earlier.
“I just felt that with the amount of dominance Chelsea had they weren’t creating enough real good chances.
“The fact you have the level of bench that Chelsea had, there was no reason why at least two of them could have been brought on a lot earlier.
“I thought Lukaku was the perfect addition but that’s without knowing the physical capabilities he has right now. He might not have had more than the manager gave him.
“It’s always easier to say after the game but we were slightly surprised that Tuchel didn’t make changes earlier.”
Chelsea face Watford in their next Premier League game while the Red Devils welcome Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side at Old Trafford.
Chelsea still maintained their lead in the table on 30 points just one behind Manchester City who defeated West Ham 2-1 to leapfrog Liverpool at the weekend.
