Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation has called on the National Assembly to impeach Vice President Yemi Osinbajo over the abuse of the Public Procurement Act in the approval of N5.8billion as intervention funds for the North East in 2017.

The House of Representatives in its investigative report had indicted Osinbajo after its investigation into the fund disbursement.

Fani-Kayode in a tweet described Osinbajo as a cheap crook for giving illegal approval of NEMA finds.

The former minister urged the DSS to arrest and prosecute the Vice President for allegedly stealing and money laundering.

He wrote: “I call on NASS to impeach VP Yemi Osinbajo and on the DSS to arrest and prosecute him for misappropiation of public funds, diversion, money laundering, concealment and stealing.

“Given his illegal approval of 5.8 billion naira to NEMA, I have no doubt that he is a cheap crook.”

Comic book genius Stan Lee, the architect of the contemporary comic book, has died. He was 95.

The creative dynamo who revolutionized the comics by introducing human frailties in superheroes such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and The Incredible Hulk, was declared dead Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

As the top writer at Marvel Comics and later as its publisher, he revived the industry in the 1960s by offering the costumes and action craved by younger readers while insisting on sophisticated plots, college-level dialogue, satire, science fiction, even philosophy.

Spider-Man, the Hulk and X-Men were among the Lee creations that went on to become stars of blockbuster films.  

Sane has named the two greatest footballers of all-time
Just who is the greatest footballer of all-time?

It’s an argument that anyone who has watched the beautiful game has had.

Opinions will always differ but speak to those of another generation and the likes of Diego Maradona and Pele will come up.

But Ronaldinho and Zinedine Zidane have squeezed their way into the conversation.

And today? Well, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the game’s biggest superstars and both will be spoken about for decades to come.

The generational gap makes it difficult to compare modern players to those of yesteryear but it’s hard to overlook the achievements of Messi and Ronaldo when it comes to naming the greatest of all-time.

The two have transcended the sport, breaking several records and reaching a level that many can only dream of getting to.

Real Madrid v Barcelona - La Liga
Sane's choice for the GOAT
In the eyes of Manchester City winger Leroy Sane, Messi deserves to be considered the GOAT.

Sane named two players when asked for his choice, though, and the other one wasn’t Cristiano Ronaldo.

Instead, the Germany international named Ronaldinho as his other pick.

“I guess I’d go for either Messi or Ronaldinho 👏🏾,” Sane said during a Twitter Q&A.

Well, that will leave Ronaldo’s supporters disappointed.

Liverpool v Manchester City - Premier League
It’s hardly a surprise that Sane named Messi as one of his choices. In January, the 22-year-old revealed that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has asked him to play with the same level as freedom that the Barcelona star does.

“Pep told me to play with freedom like Messi, not like Messi – it’s impossible,” Sane told The Guardian.

“Be free like Messi, have fun, do things like he wants from a striker like the end of the space [near goal] – take the option to shoot or give an assist.”

Sane has enjoyed a remarkable rise in recent years, winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award last season as Man City cruised to the Premier League title.
Following Barcelona's 4-3 home defeat against Real Betis the cameras captured a tense moment between Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique.

Despite the disappointment, the Blaugrana defender settled the argument which didn't go further.

"Now you're going to f*** me for a pass, do not f*** with me," said the Uruguayan, as recorded by the Movistar+ cameras.

Later on Pique talked to Arturo Vidal, to underline that he didn't hear anything from the Chilean, in a Barcelona chance that was lost due to a misunderstanding between the two.

"If you say 'mine' it's ok, but I [swear] to my life, I didn't heard it," explained the 31-year-old.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says the title race is wide open - but failed to mention today's opponents Manchester United among the contenders.

City are just two points clear and three teams unbeaten after 12 matches for the first time in English top-flight history.

“City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal – they have numbers to be Champions," he stated.

“We are just two points ahead – it is nothing.

“When you win (the league) with 100 points, people can think we'll maintain our level. The key is the depth.

“Everybody knows they have to maintain their level if they want to stay there (in the team). I am so satisfied.

“Three points against a contender is the same as three points against Southampton and it will be the same three points (at stake) against West Ham after the international break.

“The important thing is that we are consistent and that we play well most of the time but I see a lot of things we can improve."
Nigeria’s Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo has insisted that the country’s socio-economic challenges can only be solved if good government is encouraged at all level of the government.

Osinbajo made this known while speaking at the 40th anniversary lecture of the Association of Friends in Lagos.

The vice president said that the country needs stronger states government not geographical restructuring, while speaking on the theme “Restructuring and the Nigerian Federation”

He, however, spoke in favour of fiscal federalism and state police.

“I have been an advocate, both in court and outside, of fiscal federalism and stronger state governments,”

“I have argued in favour of state police, for the simple reason that policing is a local function. You simply cannot effectively police Nigeria from Abuja; only recently, I made a point that stronger, more autonomous states would effectively eradicate poverty.

“So, I do not believe that geographical restructuring is an answer to Nigeria’s socio-economic circumstances.

“That would only result in greater administrative costs; but there can be no doubt that we need deeper fiscal federalism and good governance.” Osinbajo said.

In September, Osinbajo and Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), were locked in an exchange on the issue of restructuring.
