  • World Athletics Championships: How Nigeria trips up its own athletes World Athletics Championships: How Nigeria trips up its own athletes
    Nigeria failed to win a medal at this month's World Athletics Championships - meaning Africa's most populous nation has come home empty-handed from eight of the last nine tournaments. Some athletes, like Tosin Oke, feel the lack of medals reflects a lack of support from the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN). The triple jumper alleges discrimination and the holding back of training funds from the AFN. He also feels let down by the IAAF, after complaining to athletics' governing body…

  • Nigeria’s unity settled, not negotiable, says Buhari Business and Economy Nigeria’s unity settled, not negotiable, says Buhari
    President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said the unity of the country would not be open to any negotiation. The President, in its first statement to Nigerians since he returned to Nigeria after a 104-day medical vacation in London, added that political mischief makers who were fuelling ethnic violence would be dealt with. Buhari, who said he was not against legitimate concerns, noted that different groups must air their grievances and work out a mode of co-existence. “The National Assembly and the National Council of State are the legitimate and appropriate bodies for national discourse,” he added. The President said he had been monitoring developments in Nigeria from London, adding that some comments, especially on the social media, crossed the national red line by questioning the nation’s continued existence. Apparently making a reference to the recent quit notice to people of Igbo extraction by some northern youths, Buhari said “every Nigerian has the right to live and pursue his business anywhere in Nigeria without let or hindrance.” He said terrorists and criminals must be fought and destroyed relentlessly so that the majority of Nigerians could live in peace and safety. The President said his administration would reinforce and reinvigorate the fight…

    While Jose Mourinho is pleased with Manchester United's impressive start to the Premier League season, he wants to see how his side react to going behind. United have enjoyed an excellent start to the campaign, picking up maximum points from their opening two games after repeat 4-0 wins over West Ham and Swansea. United currently sit top of the table as a result, but Mourinho would like his side to fall behind in the upcoming weeks to discover if they can handle adversity. "The thing I want to happen is for the team to be losing," Mourinho is quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "So I can see the way we react emotionally. "At this moment, everything is going in our favour, but it is not always going to be a motorway. You can always find difficult journeys and road blocks, and we have to be ready for that. "It has not happened so far but going a goal behind will be a different challenge and I want to see how these players try to change a result. "Let's see how we are when we are in difficulties, when we need the last minutes to win matches." Mourinho also said…
