As Messi Keeps Breaking, It's Time For Villa To Consider His BarcelonaFuture

The Spain striker is fit again and scoring goals but still cannot force his way into first-team reckoning at Camp Nou. It may now be time for him to consider his future.

David Villa still cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. Virtually a year after suffering serious injury with a broken leg at the Club World Cup which kept him out for eight months, the Spain striker’s return in pre-season overshadowed even the signings of Alex Song and Jordi Alba. But more than three months into the season, the Asturian still cannot hold down a first-team place.

247ureport.com spoke to the fathers of the murdered boys, Solomon Agazie and Nwachukwu. They expressed shock and disbelief over the killing of their innocent sons in cold blood. Mr Nwachukwu who was heavily saddened, cried repeatedly “Who killed my son? What offence has he committed to be shot instantly to death without justice?”


The father told our correspondent that on Thursday, Daniel visited his friend, Chukwuebuka and while Chukwuebuka was seeing off Daniel just 200 metres away from his home, when Chukwuebuka sister, who was in the bathroom had two gun shots, rushed out to the scene, only to discover that her brother and friend had been shot to death.


In panic, she alerted her parents. Both fathers rushed out to see the dead body of their two boys lying in a pool of blood - bullet riddled body.

ACN, ANPP, CPC Finally Agree to Merge In 2013

                          

The Three major opposition political parties - Action Congress of Nigeria, Congress for Progressive Change and the All Nigeria Peoples Party – may drop their identities by April 2013, when talks on their proposed merger are expected to be completed.

Analysts are of the opinion that any genuine and honest cooperation among opposition parties for the 2015 general elections could make the election tough for the PDP.

REVEALED: Union Bank Secretly Sacks 1000 Contract Staffs


                         
The Management of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc. on Friday laid off not less than 1000 contract staff nationwide.
The is the second time the financial institution is doing such within a space of 13 months.
The decision which took the disengaged workers by surprise, was communicated to the them at the close of work last Friday.
A source at the Dopemu branch of the Bank in Lagos who spoke to a source on the condition of anonymity said: “It is quite depressing. They fired those of us that are Tellers but some marketers survived the axe. I received the news with great shock. How can they do this to us at this period when the festive season is fast approaching?” she queried.
Asked if any compensation was paid, the disheaterned mother of one said: “I got an alert of N75, 000 this morning. I guess others got something in that range. I served them for five years and the best pay back I get is a sack letter two weeks to Christmas”
On her next line of action, the source in a shaky voice said: “What can I do? I will re-write my CV and go back to the labour market. I stay at home for years before I got this job, I just pray there won’t be repeat now that I have to start all over. It’s really sad.”
The Source gathered that Union Bank already has replaced the sacked members of staff with new hands recruited from Phillips Consulting and other outsourcing firms.
Our reporter called the Operations Manager of the Dopemu branch of Union Bank, Mr. T. C. Ogbonna to get his reaction.
When questioned on the reason for the lay off, Ogbonna said: “My brother, I don’t know oo. I can’t say anything because I really don’t have the details.” Sensing the reporter will not drop the call without a cogent information, the official said “Please I am not in position to speak. You can call the Head of Human Resources or Corporate Communications.”
Another insider who confided in a source said, Mr. Ogbonna may not likely give reasons so as to save his job. He is the current branch secretary of the Bank’s labour union.

Lionel Messi Breaks Gerd Muller’s Record

                          


Lionel Messi has broken Gerd Muller’s long standing record, after he scored his 86th goal in a calender for both club and country.
The Argentine forward, who was a doubt for the game away to Real Betis, opened scoring with a typical run and finish. His second goal – which took him past the record – was a smart finish, from a cute Iniesta backheel.
Barcelona went ahead to win the La Liga match 2-1, to go six points clear of Atletico Madrid and 11 points ahead of Real Madrid.
Messi achieved this fear in games, while it took the former Germany and Bayern Munich striker just 60 appearances to set the previous record in 1972.
Barcelona will play three more games before 2012 runs out and it will be a chance for Messi to further increase his tally.

Anglican run St James Girls High School has been hit by a lesbian “sex” scandal which has resulted in the expulsion of pupils, one of them for offering a teacher sex in exchange for lenience after being caught in the act.
