Gov Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Sacked

The Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the sack of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State. The governor was sacked on the grounds of false information about his tax clearance to his party, PDP prior to the gubernatorials primary in 2014. This however makes him unfit to be governor since he was initially not qualified to contest for the election in 2015

Hence, Justice Okon Abang has ordered the Independent National Electorial Commission,INEC, to issue a certificate of return to the complainant, Uche Ogah, the candidate with the second highest number of votes in the primary election

Argentine probably most prolific striker and world footballer announced his retirement during an interview; moments after a painful defeat to Chile  at the Copa America finals.

Messi missed from the spot during a penalty shootout as Argentina lost a fourth major title in nine years. However, it was gathered that Messi has been unhappy with the Argentine FA.

Furthermore, it's is highly possible that this decision was made in a haste or sentimentally but the question is...will he (Messi) reconsider his decision before the world cup in 2018 as this may be his last opportunity for a major title with the national side since 2008 Olympic gold?

British Prime Minister Resigns After UK Votes to Leave European Union

David Cameron has resigned as Prime Minister after the British public rejected his personal entreaties and voted to leave the European Union.

"I am honoured to have been prime minister of this country for six years."
"The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered," those were the words of the Prime Minister with his voice breaking with emotion, and his wife, Samantha, standing beside him in Downing Street on Friday morning.

Cameron promised to remain in post until the autumn to "steady the ship", but also said "I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain who steers the country to its next destination."
He said he had already spoken to the Queen to make his plans clear.
His dramatic announcement came after a sharp fall in the pound and as £128bn was wiped off the FTSE 100.

Nigel Farage, the Ukip leader, became the first party leader to call for Cameron to go earlier on Friday, saying Britain needed a "Brexit prime minister".
Stay tuned as new things unfold in the UK.

British Man Attempted to Kill Donald Trump

A British man who has been arrested, told authorities that he tried to grab a police officer's gun and use it to kill the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, during his Rally in Las Vegas.
According to a complaint filed in the US District Court in Nevada on Monday, Michael Sandford tried to disarm the officer at the June 18th rally in Mystere Theatre, Treasure Island Casino before being overpowered.

The young man, who holds a British driving License said he had driven from California to "Kill Trump", and had been to a range the previous day to learn how to shoot. At his trial he did not enter a plea when he appeared before a judge and has been remanded in custody until another hearing on July 5th.

"Sandford acknowledged that he would likely only be able to fire one to two rounds and stated he was convinced he would be killed by law enforcement during his attempt on Trump's life," the complaint said.
He has been charged with an act of violence "on restricted grounds" and he confessed to plotting a plan to shoot Trump for about a year but had decided to act now because he finally felt confident enough to do so

I remember writing him a personal letter after the Nations Cup in South Africa and warned him to seek the face of God. He needed prayers and I told Nigerians then that Keshi has completed his assignment with the Eagles after the Nations Cup and that Eagles needed another coach to move forward."
