The Frenchman failed to score yet again as Marcelo came to the rescue late on against Valencia, proving it is time to sell the No.9
When Real Madrid have needed a hero this season, Karim Benzema has been nowhere to be seen.
Usually, it has been Cristiano Ronaldo who has flown to the rescue. Last week, with Madrid’s Champions League hopes in the balance in extra time against Bayern Munich, he proved decisive with a clinical hat-trick at the Santiago Bernabeu to take his total tally in the quarter final tie to five goals.
On Saturday, Ronaldo once again played a key role. Madrid were labouring against Valencia in the capital in what was a must-win game for the home side following last week’s Clasico defeat to Barcelona.
The visitors missed two early chances – Santi Mina hitting the post in the first minute – before Ronaldo settled the nerves as he always does. His intelligent run from left to centre saw him dart in front of Ezequiel Garay to nod home a trademark header from Dani Carvaj…

“We are opting out and focusing our efforts at making the party the darling of Nigerians again.

"Unfortunately, former president Jonathan lost control of the meeting he convened and allo…

Goodluck Jonathan: 'Obama made it clear he wanted me removed,' Ex-president says

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has revealed that the immediate past US president, Barack Obama, desperately wanted him removed from office.

Jonathan said Obama made it clear that the US wanted a change of government in Nigeria.
The Obama administration was unsatisfied with the way Jonathan handled the fight against corruption, Boko Haram insurgency and the rescue of the kidnapped Chibok school girls, it was learnt.
It is believed that it was based on these reasons that the US at the time placed an arms embargo on Nigeria.
Although the US cited gross abuse of human rights by the Nigerian army as the reason for its decision.
President Donald Trump has reportedly lifted the embargo, with plans underway for the US to sell fighter jets to Nigeria to further advance the anti-Boko Haram war.
In a new book written by Segun Adeniyi and titled 'Against the Run of Play', which chronicles how Jonathan lost the 2015 presidential election, the ex-president said Obama influenced UK and …

Tianzhou-1: China's first cargo spacecraft docks with space lab

It made first contact with the space lab at 12:16 pm on Saturday (04:16 GMT) and docking was completed at 12:23 pm.
Cargo ships bring supplies and fuel into orbit, and the independent development of one is a "crucial step" toward China's goal of having its own crewed space station by 2022, according to the official Xinhua news agency.
The Tianzhou-1 is a tube-like craft which measures 10.6 metres in length and can carry over six tonnes of cargo as well as satellites, Xinhua said.

EFCC: Anti-graft agency may declare Niger ex-Commissioner wanted over N6bn discovery

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it may declare a former Commissioner of Local Government in Niger wanted after a further N2 billion was traced to his UBA account by the agency.

EFCC sources on Friday in Abuja said that the‎ ‎discovery brought to N6 billion, funds traced to accounts held by the politician and companies linked to him.
The Commission had some weeks ago traced N4 billion to two accounts in GTBank, both linked to him. ‎
The first account belongs to Sadiq Air Travel Agency Ltd. and the second belonged to him.
Sources at the Commission, however, said that the politician who was a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 election has been elusive.
He is on the run and all efforts to track him down have been futile. The next option left for the Commission is to declare him wanted,” the source said.
The source further disclosed that investigations so far pointed in the direction that the funds were siphoned from the Local Gove…
