FOOTBALL: Saudi Arabia adjust Marriage rules for Ronaldo, Partner Georgina

Saudi Arabia is reportedly set to bend its marriage law to allow Al Nassr new star signing  Cristiano Ronaldo to live with his partner, Georgina Rodriguez.

Saudi Arabia marriage law forbids couples that are not married from living together.

However, Spanish news outlet, Sport, revealed that Ronaldo and Rodriguez will be living together in Saudi Arabia with their kids and are most likely not going to be punished for breaking the law.

Ronaldo joined Al Nassr from Manchester United after his contract with the club was terminated by mutual agreement following an explosive interview the Portuguese star had in November with British presenter, Piers Morgan.

The 37-year-old heavily criticised the management of Man United saying there had been no improvement at the club since Sir Alex Ferguson left. He also lashed United coach Erik ten Hag, saying he had no respect for him.

Ronaldo was officially unveiled as an Al Nassr player on Tuesday after receiving a thrilling welcome upon arrival.

He said he chose to join the Saudi Arabian club because he wanted to help in developing the sport in the region and be a mentor to the younger generation there.

He also said he chose to join the Arabian club because he had “won everything” there is to win in Europe.

The deal signed with Al Nassr is a whooping £173m per year deal that has made Ronaldo the highest paid footballer in the world.

MURDER:A Medical Doctor identified as Dr. Uyi Iluobe has been shot dead in Delta State

Iluobe was gruesomely murdered at his privately-owned hospital (Olive clinic) in the town of Oghara-eki.

Author: Elijah Ubong

Few days before he was asassinated, a gun shot victim was brought to the hospital and he advised that they would need to provide a police report while treatment is commenced but they rather insisted that the victim be treated off police notification.

He refused and they took the gunshot victim away angry and furious.

On the day of the attack, he was in the consulting room with a patient (who is currently at large).

The patient was said to have come in with severe pains and was being reviewed urgently without registration in medical records when suddenly the assailants came in and shot him d€mead.

The lady (supposed patient) and the assassins left hurriedly in a car parked outside the hospital while other hospital staffs were all lying face down and in fear.

This is the most gruesome manner to k!!! a doctor who places the wellbeing of the community he serves in high esteem.

The body of the late doctor has been deposited in the mortuary while the security agencies are making efforts to fish out his killers.

FOOTBALL:Why Has Ronaldo not Congratulated Messi? – ADE DIVINE

As a Messi-Ronaldo enthusiast, I have been bothered that Ronaldo has not congratulated Messi publicly on this landmark achievement!

During the 2019 UEFA awards, Ronaldo gave a very beautiful speech explaining his rivalry with Messi. Seated next to the Argentine, he said, “We shared the stage for 15 years, me and him. I don’t know if that’s ever happened in football, the same two guys, same stage, all the time.”

If anything, one must have thought Ronaldo’s words emitted Roger-Rafa vibes. Down the years, the entire world has been awed by rivalry between tennis’s GOATS Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Both men have produced XXL excellence doused with humility and a lot of public respect and admiration for each other.

It was indeed heartwarming reading Roger’s congratulatory message to Rafa after the latter won a record 21st Grand Slam in Australia this year. The world was even more mesmerised seeing Rafa break down in tears during Roger’s farewell match. The way Rafa and Roger have managed their rivalry publicly only helps promote the intrinsic values of sport – fair play, respect, and above all, healthy competition.

Mind you, being bothered by the absence of a Ronaldo congratulatory message to Messi, doesn’t in any way imply with certainty that Messi would have written one in the reverse situation.

Ronaldo and Messi are like the tennis GOATS. A Ronaldo public message to Messi at this point will only add to the Portuguese’ greatness, just like one from Messi in case Ronaldo won will only augment Messi’s greatness. Such will further make their rivalry an exemplary one to kids as well the entire world.

I am still waiting…

Worst World Cup Ever, Christiano Ronaldo’s Sister Wails

Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister has described this year’s World Cup as ‘the worst ever’ in a dramatic post on social media.

Katia Aveiro, 45, watched on as her superstar brother was eliminated from the competition in the quarter-finals after Portugal fell to a shock defeat by underdogs Morocco.

Taking to social media, Aveiro wrote: ‘The worst World Cup of all time… that thankfully gave us a great final. What a match. Congratulations to Argentina.’

In addition, she wrote: ‘Kylian Mbappe. This boy is unreal. What a bright future awaits you. Incredible.’

There had been questions over her brother’s commitment after suggestions that he was willing to walk away from the national team camp during the World Cup. But Ronaldo later stayed as his side crashed out in the last eight.

His sister had urged him to leave the World Cup and come home to a place where he has ‘all the gratitude and not ingratitude’ following his demotion to Portugal’s bench.

Ronaldo was visibly unhappy after being dropped for Portugal’s World Cup last-16 clash with Switzerland. He lost his starting place to Benfica’s rising star Goncalo Ramos.


Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, has commended the manpower development initiative of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), saying it’s a step to bolster innovations in the paramilitary for security optimization.

Governor Emmanuel handed down the commendation,Thursday ,while declaring open a 3-day Operations Seminar 2022, organized by the Nigerian Air Force on the theme “Harnessing NAF Combat Experience in Joint Operations for Doctrinal Development”, at Ibom Hall, Uyo.

Governor Emmanuel who was the special guest of honour at the event appreciated the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao, for choosing Akwa Ibom State to host the Operations Seminar and expressed optimism that knowledge garnered will further equip the Nigerian Airforce to meet up with contemporary challenges.

He acknowledged the operations and contributions of the Nigerian Airforce under the watch of the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Amao in tackling security challenges and commended NAF for living up to its responsibilities.

“When I heard of your operations seminar I said, this is the right approach and it will correct minor errors as well as make the service optimal. So I believe the Nigerian Airforce will change from security optimization to something higher.

“For us as a state we are quite elated to be associated with the Nigerian Air Force (NAF). There is no doubt that the Nigerian Airforce has lived up to its statutory responsibilities and objectives over the years.

“It is also gratifying for me to state that the professionalism of the Nigerian Airforce under the leadership of the current Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal I. O Amao, has further given Nigeria a sense of hope and security”, he remarked.

The state Chief Executive stated that his administration which anchored its vision on the three main gateways of Air, Land and Sea to drive industrialization, has made significant progress in the aviation sector, assuring that on completion of a smart airport terminal building and MRO, the aviation sector will be reinvigorated for its operations.

Earlier, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Amao, expressed delight for the support of the state government to NAF and particularly appreciated Governor Emmanuel for gracing the event as special guest of honour.

He explained that the 2022 Operations Seminar on the theme, “Harnessing Nigerian Air Force Combat Experience in Joint Military Operations for Doctrinal Development”, was borne out of the need to reappraise past operational successes and failures in order to re-strategize towards expeditiously ending the current scourge of insecurity.

The seminar, according to the Airforce Chief, will take cognizance of the dynamism and complexity of the ever-changing security architecture and adopt strategies that would promote NAF’s retention of credible air power capability, considering the intrinsic complexities of current warfare, influences of such external factors as international politics, among others.
