Man Utd sign Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal completes Henrikh Mkhitaryan deal

 

Manchester United have completed the signing of Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal with Arsenal that sees Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates.

According to Sky Sports Sanchez has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Jose Mourinho's side, while Mkhitaryan has agreed a three-and-a-half-year contract in north London.

Sanchez will wear the No 7 shirt at Manchester United.

United were leading the chase to sign the Chile international after Manchester City withdrew from negotiations over cost, with Chelsea also having held an interest in the forward.

But it is United who have won the race to sign the 29-year-old, whose contract at the Emirates was set to expire this summer, while Mkhitaryan becomes Arsene Wenger's second signing of the January window.

Sanchez told Manchester United's official website: "I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world. I have spent three-and-a-half wonderful years at Arsenal and I bring with me very positive memories of that great club and its fans.

"The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down. I am very proud to be the first Chilean player ever to play for United's first team and I hope I can show our fans all around the world why the club wanted to bring me here."

Mourinho said: "Alexis is one of the best attacking players in the world and he will complete our very young and talented group of attacking players. He will bring his ambition, drive and personality, qualities that make a Manchester United player and a player that makes the team stronger and the supporters proud of their club dimension and prestige.

"I would like to wish Henrikh all the success and happiness that I am sure he is going to get. He is a player that we will not forget, especially for his contribution to our Europa League victory."

Plateau Assembly seeks empowerment programme for IDPs

The Plateau House of Assembly Committee on Labour and Security has urged the state’s Peace Building Agency to develop empowerment programmes for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the state.


Chairman of the committee, Mr Daniel Dem, made the call on Monday in Jos when the management of the agency appeared before it to defend its 2018 budget proposal.
According to Mr. Daniel Dem, most of the IDPs will want to go back to their original places of abode “once there is a means of sustenance”.
“A lot of the displaced persons want to return to their original homes, but they don’t have the wherewithal to do so.

“They lack the financial muscle to rebuild their burnt houses, buy their farming implements and even rekindle their former businesses.
“Many of the young ones among them have dropped out of school because they lacked money and no form of sponsorship coming from anywhere,“he said.
He said that their problem were beyond mere donations of food and clothing.
“They want empowerment. They want economic support which will help them move on.
“So, as an agency saddled with the responsibility of ensuring peace in the state, I think you should give this a serious attention,” he said.
Responding, Director General of the agency, Mr Joseph Lengman, said that the agency, in its strategic plan, had captured the issue of the displaced persons, and assured that they would be well catered for.
Lengman added that the agency had gone into partnership with some international organisations on ways to support and empower the IDPs in the state.
“Peace building will not be complete when the IDPs are not catered for, because if they are neglected, there is high tendency of some of them going back to fuel crisis.
“So, in our five-year conflict strategic plan, the issue of empowerment of the displaced is well captured,” he said.

OAP Freeze reacts as a Nigerian man rejects a N500K job from British American Tobacco company


A Nigerian Christian reportedly rejects a job of 500k from British American Tobacco/Nigerian breweries because smoking/drinking is a sin.

Meanwhile Controversial Cool FM OAP, Daddy Freeze has reacted to the report by claiming that smoking and drinking is not a sin.

Read the tweets below:

“Imagine a Nigerian Christian who has been jobless for 4 years rejecting a job offer that pays more than 500k from British American Tobacco/Nigerian breweries because smoking/drinking is a sin.”
Daddy Freeze reacts to man who rejected a 500k job from Nigerian breweries Lailasnews 11

Read OAP Freeze reactions:

“Drinking alcohol is NOT a sin! Jesus drank alcohol and produced ‘wine’ which is alcoholic…. let’s remember that Jesus was accused of being a drunkard… you can’t be accused of being a drunkard if you drink grape juice.

The disciples were also accused of acting drunk on ‘new wine’ in Acts2 if wine wasn’t alcoholic, why were the disciples accused of being drunk on it?🙄

Cigarettes on the other hand, although not expressly mentioned in the Bible, can be a source of ‘moral’ concern, especially because of the high number of deaths attributed to them each year.

It is however not the job of your pastor to decide your choice of employment, let the Holy Spirit lead you! ~FRZ

Acts 2:13 

New International Version
Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”

English Standard Version
But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”

Berean Study Bible
But others mocked them and said, “They are drunk on neerif;">But others were mocking and saying, “They are full of sweet wine.”


King James Bible
Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.”

Former Barcelona star Samuel Eto’o visits George Weah ahead of inauguration today


Superstar Footballer, Samuel Eto’o, who is presently in Liberia for the Inauguration ceremony of President-elect, George Weah scheduled to take place today January the 22nd 2018, paid him a visit.
Samuel Eto’o posed for photos with George Weah, who will be taking over from Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first elected female president, who steps down after two terms of six years each.
Recall that the Former Ballon d’Or winner, George Weah, was announced as the President-elect of Liberia, West Africa few weeks ago.
The 51-year-old former World Footballer of the Year won thirteen out of fifteen counties. His 73-year-old opponent and current vice president, Joseph Boakai got only two counties. Weah becomes the 25th President of Liberia.
The ex-Liberian international played for Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, Chelsea and Manchester City and later returned to France with Marseille. He is the only African to win the coveted Ballon d’Or.
Weah also won the UEFA Champions League Top Scorer award, Coupe de France, Ligue1, Coupe de la Ligue, Serie A title, English FA Cup among others.
His inauguration would be the first time power was transferred from one democratically elected government to another.
Mr Weah’s victory is a big milestone for the nascent democracy. Liberia suffered two brutal civil wars between 1989 and 2003. An estimated 250,000 people died and perhaps 90% of the economy was wiped out. In 1997, during a period of peace, Charles Taylor, a warlord, became president, having made it clear that he would go back to war if not elected. Supporters chanted, “He killed my ma, he killed my pa, but I’ll vote for him.”
Mr Weah is idolised, particularly among the young—and more than half the electorate is under 33. He lost to the current president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, in 2005. A former World Banker, she generated a surge of enthusiasm for having neither blood on her hands nor loot in her pockets. However, she failed to curb corruption adequately or fix Liberia’s woeful schools and clinics. Voters cried foul.

Police to arrest Reekado Banks for not performing at a wedding



Mavin Singer, Reekado Banks has been served a notice by the Nigerian Police to refund a couple that  refused to show up and perform at their wedding. The case involves his manager and a Media Personality and is currently  being served at the Ogba Police Area Command in Lagos.

According to findings, the singer was contracted on behalf of a couple, by the OAP to perform at their wedding but he failed to show up, and he at the same time did not deem it fit to refund the couple the payment they had made in advance to the singer.

To this effect, Uwa Idahosa, a Benin Based Media Personality and comedian who contracted the singer on behalf of the couple, dragged Reekado Banks to court but the singer’s manager said they could not refund the full amount, but could part with N800,000.

Inside sources have also revealed that the Police Authorities have given the singer and his manager, Temi an ultimatum till Monday to return the sum of 2million naira to the couple. If they did othewrise, they will be made to face the wrath of the law.

At the moment, Idahosa and the management of Reekado Banks manager are waiting till Monday to see if the singer will honour the Ultimatum served by the Police.

hen Reekado’s manager, Temi, was contacted on phone to confirm if the allegation was true, he replied harshly on the issue, in a stern voice saying:

‘All the allegations are not true, I will rather let the matter remain as it is. When the right time comes, we will let the public know what transpired between both parties’.

We hope the matter is resolved amicably and this will also be a lesson to Nigerian celebrities, most of whom believe they are above the law.

See the coldest city in the world where even the eyelashes freeze

Even thermometers can't keep up with the plunging temperatures in Russia's remote Yakutia region, which hit minus 67 degrees Celsius (minus 88.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas Tuesday.
In Yakutia — a region of 1 million people about 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) east of Moscow — students routinely go to school even in minus 40 degrees. But school was canceled Tuesday throughout the region and police ordered parents to keep their children inside.
In the village of Oymyakon, one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, state-owned Russian television showed the mercury falling to the bottom of a thermometer that was only set up to measure down to minus 50 degrees. In 2013, Oymyakon recorded an all-time low of minus 71 degrees Celsius (minus 98 Fahrenheit).

Over the weekend, two men froze to death when they tried to walk to a nearby farm after their car broke down. Three other men with them survived because they were wearing warmer clothes, investigators reported.
But the press office for Yakutia's governor said Tuesday that all households and businesses in the region have working central heating and access to backup power generators.
Residents of Yakutia are no strangers to cold weather and this week's cold spell was not even dominating local news headlines Tuesday.
But some media outlets published cold-weather selfies and stories about stunts in the extreme cold. Women posted pictures of their frozen eyelashes, while YakutiaMedia published a picture of Chinese students who got undressed to take a plunge in a thermal spring.

"URGENT: PLS DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUNDRAISER 16TH-23RD January 2O18

Good morning to all my fans. It is now 7 days I was released from #PHMax. I need your help! First I want to thank those that sent me funds to help with my food, medication and some clothing expenses and even upcoming travel home after my court case is adjourned and I'm done treating my medical problems.

I have a whole host of medical issues. I am BEGGING YOU to help me! *Typhoid fever
*Malaria
* Eye injury in prison (punched)
*Foot infection due to barefoot laws in cell and wet bathrooms and dirty toilets
*Anxiety and depression
* Dental injury and swollen infected gums (bit a periwinkle put in our stew and I wasn't told u suck the blue thing out instead of biting the shell. Pls its not funny, I've never eaten this shellfish before and it's more common in SS and SE)
*Ear infections
* Waist and back pain from sleeping on the floor
* Chest pains

My health is very poor. I cannot make any appearances, do interviews or work now. I have to get my sanity and health back. Help me raise funds this one week. I have already lost my business and website www.hnnafrica.com and not worked since March 2017 plus my passport was also seized so no travel assignments. If u remembered, I was very ill the last release treating my post prison illnesses when a bench warrant was written as I did not go to one of my court hearings. The official doctor letter was given to my former lead lawyer Fatai Lawal of Afe Babalola firm who submitted it to Federal court and not magistrate court who rearrested me October 12th 2017. His wicked act was perpetrated because I fired him for not perfecting my magistrate bail causing my second arrest of 26 hours June 22nd 2017. He is forgiven, God will be the judge. Be careful when selecting lawyers. God will also PERFECT YOUR LIFE AND YOUR 2018. #hnnhealth #hnnkemi

Singer Chris Brown to face jail for keeping pet without permit

American singer  Chris Brown could spend up to six months in jail after his pet monkey Fiji was seized because he didn’t have a permit to keep her.

The 28-year-old singer could face up to six months behind bars after he was slapped with a misdemeanor charge for keeping the primate named Fiji – at his home in California without obtaining a Restricted Species Permit from California Fish and Wildlife.

He landed himself in trouble in December when he shared a video clip on his Instagram account of his three-year-old daughter Royalty with Fiji.

Within 36 hours of him posting the footage, California Fish and Wildlife received “a dozen or so tips on the incident” and executed a search warrant on January 2.

The city’s wildlife department’s employee Captain Patrick Foy has said that Chris was not at home when the search on his home in Los Angeles was carried out but his staff handed the primate over to the authorities and he agreed to co-operate with them.

The case will be forwarded to the Los Angeles City Attorney for the next step of the process but a spokeswoman has confirmed the report has not been turned in yet.

According to TMZ, Chris could be charged with “having a restricted species without a permit” because it is illegal to own a monkey in California without obtaining a permit.

However, the ‘Privacy’ hitmaker’s lawyer Mark Geragos told E! News: “We are confident that the City Attorney has more pressing problems than monkey business.”

Dear city of David, kindly remove me from your mailing list - Daddy Freeze calls out RCCG

Nigerian OAP, Daddy Freeze has taken to his Instagram page to slam the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) yet again.

The controversial OAP said the church should stop sending him mails that he is not a member of their church.

He shared a screenshot of a mail he received from RCCG.

See the screenshot below:
He share the above screenshot with the caption:

"Dear city of David, kindly remove me from your mailing list.

I'm not a member of your church, neither do I share your philosophy of praying for what developed nations work for and have largely achieved.

According to the RCCG website, you people have circa 33,000 branches. If you turned 10,000 of those branches into factories, you won't need to pray and fast to 'fulfill purpose'.

If another 10,000 were dedicated to 'FREE EDUCATION' less prayers would be dedicated to fulfilling purpose.

If the redeemed church made their schools FREE OF CHARGE AT LEAST FOR THEIR MEMBERS, it would be much easier for them to find their purpose and fulfill it!

I once took my kids to your primary school and I was told it was about 500k a term, do I need to say more?

Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg and the nations of China and UAE are fulfilling their purpose through hard work, innovation and charity, NOT PRAYER, emulate them!

Why 50 days of fasting and prayer? Even Jesus himself fasted only 40days.... The one you people prayed and fasted last year, how far had it taken the body of Christ? Or the nation as a whole?

Nigeria is predominantly christian with 51% of the population being christian, does it show? The richest nation on earth per capita is Qatar and it's a Muslim nation, out of the top 8 wealthiest countries on earth per capita, 4 are Muslim nations and one is Buddhist, the only christian nations that made the list are predominantly Catholic. NOT ONE COUNTRY THAT IS PREDOMINANTLY PENTECOSTAL MADE IT TO TGE LIST AND THIS IS WHY!

While you dedicate 50days to praying and fasting, they are building their nation and would eventually lend us money!

A few days ago, Bill Gates came to bail us out by paying our $76million bill and you are here praying for fulfillment of purpose? ~FRZ
