Messi Continues To Generate Income For Barcelona


It’s been a couple of months since Lionel Messi departed FC Barcelona. However, the Spanish club continues to be connected with the Argentine forward through the financial side. 

According to AS, Barcelona still sells items related to Messi in its shops. For example, a signed captain’s armband sold for €643.5, a 2020-21 season jersey signed by Messi sold for €1,170, and even a jersey signed by Xavi Hernandez, Andrés Iniesta, and Messi at the cost of €2,950.

The official Barcelona store also continues to use the image of Messi in conjunction with that of other culés legends; such is the case of a kit from the 2013-14 season signed by the Argentine star, Xavi Hernández, and Iniesta. In this case, the price of the garment shoots up to €2,950

Messi left this past summer after Barcelona couldn’t afford to fit his contract under the La Liga wage salary cap. As a result, they had to part ways with their club legend. 

Nonetheless, the Argentine still ‘continues playing’ for Barca and helping his former team generate extra-sports income thanks to exploiting his image.

EPL: Guardiola singles out two Super Eagles players after Man City defeat Leicester 6-3

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has hailed the Nigerian duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman after their performances in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

City almost threw away a four-goal lead against Leicester, but went on to win 6-3 at the Etihad.

On Iheanacho’s return to Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI, he scored a goal and assisted two – one of which was Lookman’s.

Aside from his goal, Lookman’s runs kept the City backline in check. The former Everton star had five successful dribbles and won more than half of his duels.

Guardiola has now singled out the two Super Eagles forwards for their displays against his side.

They have big quality in transition, and then they changed shape,” Guardiola said after the game.

“Vestergaard is an excellent player, and when Tielemans and Maddison can play, they have lots of quality, with Kelechi and Lookman too.”




Am happy we made it together,many struggled to achieve one thing or the other, to meet up with one target or the other but they are not alive today to tell the story..

But you and I are alive in good health..., Happily... Cheerfully...

So ,it's a thing to thank God for.



IMF borrowed from Nigeria in 1974 — Former Finance Minister

By Abdallah el-Kurebe

Sokoto — Minis- ter of Finance in the Second Republic, Alhaji Abubakar Alhaji, said yesterday the International Monetary Fund, IMF, borrowed money from Nigeria in 1974.

Alhaji, who revealed this when Senator Shehu Sani paid him a private visit in his residence in Sokoto, said he signed the loan agreement when he was Permanent Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Finance.


The former Finance Minister, who did not disclose the amount involved, said:  “I weep for Nigeria for what it has become today. The country has vast resources that if well harnessed, could lead the country     to greater heights.

’In 1974 when I was permanent secretary at the Federal Ministry of Finance, the IMF approached us for a loan. I signed the agreement on behalf of Nigeria. Unfortunately, today expenses of government have driven us into recession,’’ he said.

He added that Nigeria’s over-dependence on oil was the result of the economic problems the nation was plunged into.

He said: “Aside from oil and agriculture, Nigeria had industries that were earning foreign exchange for it. Agriculture and the industries were allowed to recede and when global fuel prices crashed, we are nowhere today.”

Alhaji further noted that the present 36 states were too many and had bred corruption, noting that government’s expenditure was on the high side.

He said:  “The more states we have, the more corruption there is. We should have between six and twelve states. We should cut our coat according to our size.”

On the Biafran agitation, the former Minister said Nigeria should remain united, noting “there is nothing better for us than a united Nigeria. We have potentials that could be harnessed and enjoyed together.”

Mourinho’s hand in Nigeria’s new foreign coach


Mourinho’s hand in Nigeria’s new foreign coach

The Nigeria Football Federation will soon announce the appointment of a new foreign coach for the Super Eagles. The announcement could be made before the impending Africa Cup of Nations billed for Cameroon in January.

The new coach, whose identity is still being kept under wraps, was recommended to Nigeria by one of the best and most popular coaches in the world, Jose Mourinho.

Sports Nigerianewslite exclusively gathered that in his bid to get the best tactician for Nigeria, Pinnick who has never hidden his lack of confidence in Nigerian coaches, went in search of a capable hand who would replace sacked Gernot Rohr.

Our source informed that due to the backlash that followed Rohr’s poor performance with the Eagles, Pinnick didn’t want to take anything for granted, in his search for Rohr’s replacement.

“The NFF boss went as far as meeting with many respected names including the former Chelsea coach, Jose Mourinho to assist him in getting a good coach for Nigeria,” our source said.

“The speed and precision with which the NFF applied in securing a new coach could not have been possible without the role played by the ‘Special One’.”

Our source said the NFF President is not leaving anything to chance in his bid to ensure Nigeria’s flag is flown in Qatar 2022. “Qualification to the 2022 World Cup is top priority for NFF president Amaju Pinnick,” he said.

Pinnick, himself said as much when he explained that Rohr was booted out to avoid a “disaster”, which will actually be failure to feature at Qatar 2022 that will guarantee millions of US Dollars to the country.

Although the new coach is expected to be named before the AFCON, he is expected to be in Cameroon as a spectator. “He is expected to have a first hand knowledge of the team from the background while interim coach Austin Eguavoen pilots the campaign for Nigeria’s fourth continental title,” our source added.

She noted that upon completion the project would boost commercial activities in the area.

Eulogizing the federal lawmaker, the Vicar of St. Theresa's Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Kenneth Kenechukwu Okafor described Ekwunife as a "talk and do" lawmaker who keeps to her political promises. He stated that the people of Anambra state have been echoing the positive impact of Ekwunife in the state.

Speaking further, the cleric on behalf of the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Sylvester Dunu, and the entire Parishioners commended the lawmaker for her developmental strides across the district, praying God to grant her heart desires.

Ahead of the Conferment of Iyom Ifekaolaedo On Ekwunife By The Clan Head of Dunukofia Ancient Kingdom

 Ahead of the Conferment of Iyom Ifekaolaedo On Ekwunife By The Clan Head of Dunukofia Ancient Kingdom

Today, December 18, 2021, His Royal Majesty, Igwe Dr Robert Chukwudilim Eze (Okofia IV), Igwe Ukpo and Clan head of Dunukofia Ancient Kingdom shall confer a prestigious Chieftaincy title of Iyom Ifekaolaedo on the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Uche Ekwunife, PhD.

The conferment which is part of the series of activities lined up for the 2021 Ofala festival of the respected Monarch will also see other distinguished personalities honoured by the community.

While Senator Ekwunife will receive the title of Iyom Ifekaolaedo, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state will be conferred the title Ifezulumba.

Other recipients include, PDP National Secretary, Senator Sam Anyanwu, South East PDP Zonal Chairman, Chief Ali Odefa, Senator Sam Ohuabunwa amongst others.

The Ofala festival of the Dunukofia clan is a memorial ceremony for the remembrance of the day the traditional ruler of the community ascended the throne of his ancestors. The event also presents the opportunity for the King to pray for the progress of his subjects and protections against evil.

Historically, Dunukofia is both an LGA and a clan/dynasty with the King of Ukpo Kingdom occupying the position of the clan head. Also worthy of note is that the celebrated Philanthropist and Chairman of Atlas Oranto Petroleum, Prince Engr. Arthur Eze (Ozoigbondu) is a revered Prince of the community.

The conferment of Ifekaolaedo which literally means "SOMETHING MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD" on Ekwunife is without doubt a testimony of her extraordinary efforts towards community development. Senator Ekwunife's investments in human capital and infrastructural development have obviously not gone unnoticed. The recognition by Ukpo Kingdom is an honour well deserved.

Hail thee, the incoming Iyom Ifekaolaedo of the Ancient Ukpo Kingdom!

 4 African Countries Where Igbo Tribe Can Be Found (Photos)

1. Cameroon

In the Central African country, large population of Igbo tribe can be found. According to estimate, there are about one hundred and five thousand Igbo speakers in the Anglophone and Francophone nation.

2. Nigeria

The Igbo are the second largest group of people inhabiting a large part of southeastern Nigeria, mostly on the eastern side of the Niger River. In the present day Nigeria, Igboland is roughly made up of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo, Northern Delta, and Rivers. More than 30 million people inhabit Igboland, and are socially and culturally diverse, consisting of many subgroups.

Thomas Tuchel says midfielder is now ‘back in a good shape and in full confidence’


Thomas Tuchel says midfielder is now ‘back in a good shape and in full confidence’

Chelsea heavily rely on goal scorers from all over the pitch in the last couple of seasons, rather than relying on one particular forward more than the rest.

Although the likes of Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku should be scoring more, it is refreshing to see that we can get goals from all over the park should we need to.

It would be amazing if you guys subscribed for my project over at Si & Dan Talk Chelsea, where we are putting out so much Chelsea content including DAILY Newsletters, exclusive news, breaking news, Podcasts, interviews, inside information, and bringing in some massive guests!

In fact, our joint top scorers across all competitions so far this season is Jorginho and Mason Mount. Now of course we know Jorginho takes penalties, but Mount’s 6 goals so far this season is a good return and he will be hoping to at least double that by the time the season ends, and who would bet against this?

He’s been stepping up a lot again recently and grabbed a couple of goals in recent matches, and Thomas Tuchel declares that he is now ‘back in good shape and in full confidence’, as he tells the Chelsea website.

We rely on him because he plays in an offensive position,” said the boss.

“He needs to be decisive and assist and score, because he has the technique, the ability and the movement to do so. It’s about timing, acceleration and knowing where and when to arrive in the box.

“It’s about connections between Reece and him most of the time, depending on which side he plays. We cannot be surprised that sometimes in careers of young players they have difficult moments. That’s why they are young players, and why their careers are at the beginning and not the end.

“The thing is to take care of him, guide him through these moments, to push him and trust him with what we do,’ added Tuchel

Players always want to play, now he is back in a good shape and in full confidence, and with a bit of luck he will be the guy he can be.”

SPECIAL REPORT: Aliko Dangote's Latest Investment Has Experts in Awe and Big Banks Terrified


SPECIAL REPORT: Aliko Dangote's Latest Investment Has Experts in Awe and Big Banks Terrified

Nigerian citizens are already raking in millions of Naira from home using this "wealth loophole" - but is it legitimate?

 Nigerianwslite ; Nigerian philanthropist and Africa's richest man Aliko Dangote has made a name for himself as a brash straight-talker who doesn’t mind being honest about how he makes his money.

Last week, he appeared on The Morning Show and announced a new "wealth loophole" which he says can transform anyone into a millionaire within 3-4 months. The 64-year-old urged everyone in Nigeria to jump into this amazing opportunity before the big banks shut it down for good.

And sure enough, minutes after the interview was over, the Central Bank of Nigeria called to stop Dangote's interview from being aired - it was already too late.

Here's exactly what happened:

The Morning Show host Reuben Abati invited Dangote on the show to share any tips he had on building wealth and the billionaire dropped a bomb:

"What's made me successful is jumping into new opportunities quickly - without any hesitation. And right now, my number one money-maker is a new cryptocurrency auto-trading program called Bitcoin Profit. It's the single biggest opportunity I've seen in my entire lifetime to build a small fortune fast. I urge everyone to check this out before the banks shut it down."

Reuben Abati was left in disbelief as Dangote pulled out his phone and showed viewers how much money he's making through this new money-making program that now has everyone in Nigeria whispering.

Is it good for a man to get married without having a job?


Is it good for a man to get married without having a job?

What a woman prioritizes is your love not our money. You can have all the money in the world, if you don't give her your time, enough attention, your undiluted love and continuous reassurance of your commitment to loving and caring her she will still not be happy.

Women needs love, care, concern, continuous reassurance of love, attention, time and your faithfulness to her alone. With these things you would have a perfectly happy woman even when you're broke.

What does it mean if after kissing, he goes with his hand on my hips?

 What does it mean if after kissing, he goes with his hand on my hips?

It's easy (thanks for requesting)! Touching a woman's hips is a desire that is often present when we feel sexual attraction towards her (if not sooner)!! And, as can be seen in the image, sexual harassment is often the result of prematurely fulfilling that desire!!

A man has to learn to successfully delay sexual gratification until he is ready to reciprocate his affection.

Yes, those desires are present (and very strong) when we are going through the proper means of talking to him and assessing his interest level.

And the first kiss is special because it is the mutual acceptance of a sexual attraction and a desire to move the relationship forward.

And with that acknowledgment, it gave you the freedom to touch more intimately! (Kiss your lips and massage your hips)!! What does "butt" mean? It means he is sexually attracted to you!! (This is a new therapeutic massage technique to help relieve constipation)!!

 Which 1 of this you prefer not to do 

  1. Never open your legs to prove your love for any man. True love doesn't come through sex.
  2. Never date someone for just having sex.
  3. Never compromise your career for a relationship.
  4. Never make fun of a heartbroken and depressed person.
  5. Never smoke for fun. If you do once, you will be addicted and spoil your life.
  6. Never pretend to be something you’re not.
  7. Never blame anybody for your mistakes and failures.
  8. Never reply or give responses anytime you are angry.
  9. Never make a promise when you are happy.
  10. Never make decisions when you are sad.

A Piece In Commemoration of Senator Uche Ekwunife's Birthday

By Kingsley Ubani

Distinguished and established, Senator Uche Ekwunife (Iyom) ranks high among the political players within Igboland and Nigeria’s political firmament.

Born on the 12th day of December to the family of Ogudebe from Igboukwu, in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, Senator Ekwunife's entrance into Nigeria's political space remodeled the place of women in Nigerian politics.

Married to Chief Larry Ekwunife (Ozo Okutaoluoibe), a successful businessman from Nri in Anaocha Local government Area of Anambra State, Ekwunife has been a blessing to both her marital home, Nri and her home of birth, Igboukwu.

Her political sojourn which began after a successful career in banking, where she attained the positions of Regional Manager at Standard Trust Bank and Head Public Sector at United Bank for Africa (UBA) saw her represent the good people of Anaocha, Dunukofia and Njikoka federal constituency, one of the largest federal constituencies in Nigeria in terms of numerical strength.

Ekwunife's two-tenured representation in the federal house was effective and impactful. She moved motions for the betterment of Anambra State and her constituency. Motions against flooding, erosion, armed robbery and kidnapping form part of her contributions at the green chamber. Prominent among her motions was the motion seeking for the completion of the then abandoned Zik’s Mausoleum in Onitsha, an edifice of great emotional attachment to Ndi-Igbo which was abandoned by successive governments.

Ekwunife pursued bills that sought for constitutional reforms and alterations for the betterment of the larger Nigerian society. Her bill which sought to alter Nigeria's constitution to guarantee local government financial and political autonomy speaks volume in this regard. Iyom Ekwunife equally fought for the sustenance of the environment, she sponsored the bill for the establishment of the Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria, an agency that had existed without a clear-cut document guiding it's establishment and administration - the bill was in 2018 signed into law by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Her stay in the 8th Senate, though short-lived did witness some significant achievements for the Senatorial zone. During this period, Senator Ekwunife became the first woman and the first South Easterner to serve as the Chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum Downstream. She moved a motion to address the dilapidated state of the Enugu/Onitsha expressway as well as curb the erosion menace troubling her Senatorial zone.

Two years into the 9th Senate, Ekwunife has demostrated dexterity in the business of lawmaking. She has stood firm in projecting the interest of Anambra Central, Anambra State and the South East region. Her motion of urgent national importance seeking to address the devastating storm in Obosi, Nkpor and Oraukwu communities of Anambra State and her clamour for a representative from South East to be appointed on the board of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) are only a few examples of her efforts in this regard.

Madam project as she is fondly called, has attracted numerous projects to the Senatorial District. Projects such as, road construction and erosion control projects, classroom blocks, market stalls, health centres, borehole construction, transformer installation, solar powered streetlights plus numerous empowerment programmes for women and youths have made Anambra Central the envy of other Senatorial Districts in Nigeria.

One of her unique projects, which is the construction of 3-bedroom bungalows for the less privileged has seen close to 20 vulnerable families across the zone become proud owners of new homes, earning her the nomenclature O JI UNO EME OGO.

The youth-friendly lawmaker has equally shown strong commitment to the welfare of the youths. She has facilitated federal employment for close to 1000 youths. Her scholarship programmes date back to her days in the private sector where she used the foundation she named after her late parents to sponsor many Anambrarians through secondary and tertiary education.

Through the both chambers of the National Assembly, Senator Uche Ekwunife has shown legislative prowess, her constituency projects in the various communities are felt, seen and verifiable. She has chaired the House Committee on Environment, Senate Committee on Petroleum Downstream, and is currently the Chairman Senate committee on Science, Technology and Innovation. She is equally a member of critical standing committees in the 9th Senate.

Iyom as she is fondly called is loved by her people, she holds the prestigious title of Anyanwu-Nri from Nri community for her contributions to the socio-economic development of the town. Her title, Adaugo-Igbo is consequent of her contributions to Igboukwu community, the home of her birth. She is widely recognized by many communities and associations, with numerous awards in recognition for her strides in community development.

Iyom, your efforts in human capital development, community development and the socio-economic development of Anambra State and Nigeria at large have endeared you to the hearts of many.

Your scores of supporters and team of admirers wish you a Happy birthday and many returns!

Happy birthday, Adaugo-Igbo!

Happy birthday, Anyanwu-Nri Kingdom!

Happy birthday, Iyom Ugochinyelueze!

A New Ambition for the European Union: ‘Power’


A New Ambition for the European Union: ‘Power’

President Emmanuel Macron of France laid out plans for a Europe that is “master of its own destiny.”

Credit...Pool photo by Ludovic Marin

PARIS — President Emmanuel Macron, in a rare news conference, called on Thursday for the European Union to change from a “Europe of internal cooperation to a powerful Europe active in the world, fully sovereign, free in its choices and master of its own destiny.”

Speaking on the eve of the six-month French presidency of the European Union, which begins Jan. 1, Mr. Macron said the slogan chosen for this period would be “relaunch, power and belonging.” Power is not a word often held up as a goal by a union that emerged from the ashes of war.

The president’s assertive tone over a two-hour meeting with journalists, the first half of it taken up by his own speech, reflected his determination to forge “European sovereignty” as the only means for the continent to count in the 21st century between an autocratic China and a United States whose focus has moved away from Europe.

Many Europeans have become convinced of the unreliability of the United States as an ally and protector, and of the economic and ideological threat from China — reasons to build a more independent Europe. But how ready other European states, especially Germany, are to embrace Mr. Macron’s vision is not clear.

The difference between the word CHRISTMAS and the word X-MASS

 The difference between the word CHRISTMAS and the word X-MASS

CHRISTMAS is combination of 2 words:

Christ and Mass.

Before Christ was born, many years ago, 25th Dec used to be PAGAN'S day for SACRIFICES.

Later in the year 533 AD Constantine, the head of the then Roman Church which is today the Roman Catholic, changed the day from pagan's day of sacrifices to Jesus Christ's birth commemoration. He called the day THE MASS FOR CHRIST ie CHRISTMAS

1. CHRIST in Hebrew means The Anointed One or The Chosen One

2. MAS in Greek means A Big Gathering of People

Thus CHRISTMAS means "The Gathering of People of Christ, (His Followers/Disciples)

Then, where did the word "X-MASS" come from?

Be ware!!

Its believed that after the day of gathering of Christ's Followers {CHRISTMAS}, became famous and respected worldwide, Atheists & Antichrists decided to change it by removing the name Christ for an X to mean that there is no Christ.

It changed the meaning by reading X-MASS i.e to mean "there is no gathering of Christ's Followers"


X is often used to designate a person,thing, factor, whose true name is unknown/withheld.

It's used to take out, excise,cancel words.

"X" has nothing to do with "Christ" "The Anointed One," Don't replace Christ with "X" Therefore as a Christian don't use X-MAS but


You might have made that mistake last year by wishing people "X-Mass" instead of "CHRISTMAS". Our Father in heaven is a lovely Father and a merciful one at that. Why don't you share this message across to others.

God bless you as you help and join in correcting this error. The Lord bless u and have a Merry Christmas not X- MASS !! Or XMASS   !!!

Mkpurummiri Addiction Has No Cure – NDLEA

Mkpurummiri Addiction Has No Cure – NDLEA

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has said it is committed to clamping down on the consumption of methamphetamine, popularly known as mkpurummiri.

Mr Isah Adoro, Commander of NDLEA, Ebonyi Command, during a one-day security sensitisation campaign, organised by the National Orientation Agency (NOA) on Tuesday in Abakaliki said mkpurummiri is a very dangerous illicit drug, adding that the addiction is hard to treat because it has no cure.

Adoro, represented by Mr Owunwa Ibezim, Assistant Commander, Training, NDLEA in the state, said the Agency was worried about the consequences of mkpurumiri on the mental health of youths.

“Drug abuse should not be treated as a political issue but a socio-economical issue. The use of mkpurummiri is already banned in Ebonyi; we call on the public to join the campaign train to overcome the intake of such drugs,” Adoro said.

Dr Garba Abari, Director-General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), represented by Dr Desmond Onwo, the Agency’s Coordinator in Ebonyi, said using drugs is one major cause of the increase in crime rate in the society.

He advised the general public to desist from the abuse as well as the intake.

“Drugs are often associated with virtually all antisocial behaviours bedevilling the country.

“It is the enemy and the trigger, which pushes people into crime such as banditry, kidnapping, rape, gender-based violence, wanton killings and destruction of public assets amongst others,” he said
