Francis Amuzu reveals why he would play for Belgium ahead of Ghana

Anderlecht forward, Francis Amuzu, says it would be a better opportunity to play with Belgium at the World Cup than don the Black Stars jersey.

The 22-year-old is said to be one of the players the Ghana Football Association (GFA) are looking to convince to represent Ghana ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be stages in Qatar.

However, Amuzu has ended the Ghana FA’s chances of further pursuit, stating he would prefer to play with the Red Devils at the global showpiece as there is a better chance of getting to the latter stages of the competition.

“They [GFA] call my broker [agent] every day, but I keep it [the decision] off,” Amuzu told Het Nieuwsblad.

“Look, I was born in Ghana and when I’m there, I feel at home there because of the African atmosphere. My sporty heart lies with Belgium. With Belgium you can go very far at such a World Cup, with Ghana there is a real chance that you will be out quickly.”

Amuzu has nine goals and three assists in 37 appearances in the 2021/22 season for Anderlecht.

Rapper Olamide buys car for fan months after berating him for seeking help

 

Olamide, the ace Nigerian rapper and singer, has bought a car for a fan four months after scolding him for begging for financial assistance.

According to a Twitter thread shared by the fan named Odunuga Oluwaseun on Monday, the YBNL records boss provided him with the vehicle despite berating him when he made the plea in January.

Oluwaseun also shared a picture of himself in the car, which he said he would use for his “Bolt business.”

“Today I am so happy because I be car owner by this post. Olamide went out of all odds and put smile on my face. You are so special. Plus, say na low key you do am. I go post am. I love you more. Thank you, boss—Asake’s manager. YBNL no go fall,” he wrote.

Olamide has yet to acknowledge or reply to the tweet, but the act of kindness has sent his name high on Twitter’s trend list.

 

In January, Oluwaseun had tabled his need in the comment section of Olamide’s tweet. He begged the rapper to provide him with a car for taxi business.

 

“Baddo, I need car for my bolt business ooo.. even na HP I go pay back. Make we run biz. Thanks,” he had written.

 

In response, Olamide slammed his effrontery and insulted him in both Pidgin English and Yoruba.

 

“Money weh you keep for my hand … Ori iya e gbaa Ile,” the ‘Wo’ crooner replied.

 

The response became a polarising topic on social media for days, with some people criticising the rapper for being unnecessarily harsh while others supported his firmness.

‘A trustee is not allowed to own the trust property’ – Martin Kpebu on Sir John’s acquisition of parts of Achimota Forest

Private Legal Practitioner, Martin Kpebu, says the late former Forestry Commission boss, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as, Sir John involved himself in a conflict of interest situation.

Mr. Kpebu noted that the facts show that until his death, he was the CEO of the Forestry Commission and the facts also show that he owns land at the Achimota Forest, which constitutes a conflict of interest.

“For the number one public officer in charge of protecting our forest, to own land in the periphery of the forest and the fact that government had not totally given out the land, its interest in the forest at the time of his acquisition, constitutes a conflict of interest,” he said.

He maintained that as the trustee, he is supposed to protect the forest, thus, he cannot turn around and own portions of the land.

“A trustee is not allowed to own the trust property,” he stressed.

The name of late former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, a.k.a, Sir John, is trending on social media.

Kaduna-Abuja train attack: Shehu Sani reacts to bandits’ 7-day ultimatum to kill abducted passengers

Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to take the threat made by bandits who abducted the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers seriously.

Sani made the plea in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

He tweeted: “The threat made by the terrorists who abducted the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers that they will start “killing them in 7 days’ time” should be taken seriously.

“Similar threat was made and ignored two months ago with tragic consequences.”

It was earlier reported that terrorists who attacked and kidnapped the 28 March 2022 Abuja-Kaduna bound train passengers have threatened to, within seven days, start killing the passengers in captivity if their demands are not met.

They called the government to, as a matter of urgency, release their children allegedly kept in a Yola detention facility in Adamawa State.

Malam Tukur Mamu and Dan Iyan Fika, the spokesman of Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, were spoken to on the phone by the leaders of the terrorists.

The terrorists claimed that the Federal Government suspended the resumption of the train service because of their threats in the audio of the conversations between Malam Tukur Mamu and the leaders of the terrorists that executed the Abuja-Kaduna train attack.

I spent N30m on RHOL, the producers couldn’t afford me –Caroline Danjuma

 

Caroline Danjuma says producers of the Real Housewives of Lagos (RHOL) couldn’t afford her.

 

The actress, who took part in the reality show, spoke about spending her own money during the production.

 

“I will speak for myself. I wasn’t [paid]. I don’t know about other actresses and their contracts. But, for me, I was told I could not be afforded. They were going to give me an honorarium which had to do with my styling,” she said.

 

“And that was it. No royalties, nothing. No payment. I spent at least N20 million to N30 million of my own money buying new designer things. Things I hate to do. I paid for more in terms of styling just for everything to work out.”

3 more torrential rains to hit Accra before end of June – Ghana Meteo Agency

The Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet) has predicted that three more heavy rains will hit the southern part of the country before the end of June.

Principal Meteorologist with the research and applied meteorology directorate of the GMet, Nana Kofi Opoku, said the phenomenon is likely to occur because the peak of the rainy season is approaching.

He noted that “when we look at climatology and the forecast that we released for the March, April, May, and June season, it looks like we have on average, 3 more such incidents to occur,” he stated.

He made the remarks on the Super Morning Show on Monday following the heavy rains that hit parts of Accra on Saturday, leading to floods.

He explained that the phenomenon is one that occurs at the peak of the (raining) season.

“At the peak of the season for the southern part of the country, especially in the month of June an average of three major rainfall incidents such as what happened on Saturday occur. So on average, we are expecting about three,” he stressed.

Following hours of rain, parts of Accra and other urban centres in the Greater Accra Region, including North Kaneshie, Kwame Nkrumah Circle, and Kasoa in the Central Region, were flooded.

The phenomenon obstructed traffic flow on some major roads in the capital. Ghanaians took to Twitter to share videos of flooded areas after Saturday evening’s rain. Some homes were flooded as a result.

He is alleged to have willed portions of the Achimota Forest to individuals believed to be his relatives.

Sir John’s ‘Michael Owusu’ wanted by social media users

Some Ghanaians on social media are earnestly looking for a certain ‘Michael Owusu’.

This is because his name has popped up in a document, purported to be the will of the late CEO of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie; popularly, known as ‘Sir John’.

An excerpt of the document, which first came into the public domain on Sunday evening, contained details of how the former Forestry Commission boss, allocated his properties.

As a sequel to that excerpt, the Fourth Estate’s Manasseh Azure Awuni, on Monday morning published the full details of the will, which incensed many social media users to join discussions about the will.

In a series of commentaries on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, scores of Ghanaians wondered about the source of Sir John’s wealth.

Amidst the raging discussions on Sir John’s will, Michael Owusu’s name featured prominently, as he received the lion’s share of the assets of the late NPP stalwart.

They, therefore, queried about his identity and whereabouts, with some asking to meet him for a share of his enviable inheritance.

Sir John also gave parcels of his lands in the Achimota Forest Reserve and other valuable assets to some of his relatives, as well as his biological children.

Here are some of the comments on Michael Owusu, as expressed by some users on Twitter.

Meanwhile, MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, has opined that the acquisition of environmental assets, by private individuals is ‘criminal’ and ‘reprehensible”.

Citing the case of the Achimota Forest in a Facebook post on Monday, the NDC lawmaker, indicated that there is the need for the country to protect its ecological reserve, instead of leaving it for private hands.

Don’t belittle people because you have money, Davido advises

 

David Adeleke, the award-winning Nigerian singer better known as Davido, says money does not give people the right to disrespect others.

In a Twitter post on Saturday, the music star advised his followers to be kind to people that appear inferior to them.

 

The ‘OBO’ crooner said while having money might get people the best cars and other luxuries in life, it should not be used to belittle others.

 

“Money might get you a faster car, a bigger house or the best VIP seats but it doesn’t give you the right to treat others with less any differently. Class and decency have no price tag attached. Be Kind!!!!!!!” he wrote.

 

Davido has established himself as a prominent name in the global music industry.

 

In March, the ‘Assurance’ crooner said people thought he would not go far as a musician due to his wealthy background.

 

“Everybody just came together and I saw joy in that room…they were like this dude really beat the odds,” he had said.

 

“I was predicted to probably have one or two songs because my daddy has money. Some said ‘he’s going to do two or three songs and we’re going to push him out of the way.’

 

 “But 11 years later, I defeated them and I’m not even 30 yet. So, the experience really touched me.”
