THE NEWS: #OSUNSTATEELECTION2018
After much Campaign by Davido for his Unlce Mr Adeleke who is running for the governorship position under the umbrella of the PDP, though he has a WAEC result with F9s in it(topic for another day) it seems it was going to be a fiercely contested election for the throne of Osun state and it has not disappointed so far, as at the time of writing this piece the election results have been announced inconclusive by INEC and a rerun would be done in three areas to determine the winner of the Governorship election. Though as it stands the PDP represented by Mr Adeleke, or the “dancing Senator” as he is fondly called is taking the lead, but as it is with Nigerian elections anything can still happen. The returning officer has come out to say that the rerun would take place on Thursday 27th of September 2018 since the margin between both parties (PDP and APC) is lower compared to the total margin of those three places left to conduct an election. We are putting a close eye on it and our celebrity campaigner Davido is keeping us up to date with the happenings even though it might not be 100percent objective lol.
On a serious note though the election as shown me somethings. The people can make a difference if they really want to regardless of money or entourage of governors from the APC and the sitting governor or federal might. So far, the people are saying enough is enough because the sitting governor has not even paid salaries for over two years. I would be here to update you on the results then… Stay tuned…
ANTHONY JOSHUA VS ALEXANDER POVETKIN
It was an amazing fight to be honest, for a while it had seemed like Anthony Joshua had not been really tested, hence the Wilder fight being clamored for by everyone that loves boxing, but this was bound to be different with Povetkin the poster boy of Russia, an Olympic winner and one that had never been knocked out before just stopped by split decision against one of the Klitschko brothers. Though in weight he was smaller than AJ but he is a hard puncher and everyone could attest to it.
The fight started, and AJ was shocked at such speed and hard hitting punch from Povetkin and AJ could have possibly been knocked down in the first round, the second was not different but slowly AJ came into the match and started showing another side we all have been waiting to see. We saw in the fight that he was not just a tactical fighter, he could also throw a punch for a punch. In the seventh round there was no hope for Povetkin as AJ turned on the heat and knocked the wind out of Povetkin’s sail. For the first time Povetkin was knocked out.
AJ an ever-humble winner went to greet Povetkin and that to me is the hallmark of a great champion. Is a Wilder vs Joshua fight in the cards? Oh yes we can almost feel it. Hopefully we get to see it in 2019. But who knows with Fury in the mix and a match between Fury and Wilder on the cards for December whoever wins that could be in prime position to take on Joshua and let’s not forget Fury was lethal back in his hay days also.
CAF CONFEDERATION CUP: ENYIMBA VS RAYON SPORTS
Back in Nigeria it was a five-star thrilling encounter for Enyimba in the CAF Confederation’s cup as they took on Rayon Sports in the Quarter final to proceed to the Semi-final of the cup. Having drawn away to Rayon Sports, Enyimba needed a win to progress and a win they got though it did not go according to plan at first. Enyimba got the much needed first goal but Rayon equalized before Enyimba turned up in style and scored another four un-replied goals to win it. You definitely know I will be routing for the Aba boys to make Nigeria proud.
P.S I cannot wait for GAME OF THRONES in 2019 it would be amazing… Who remembers when Cersei told little finger “Power is Power” when he said knowledge is power. I cannot wait people.
Also, next year with the thriller of Captain Marvel hitting 109 million views in few hours, we are all geared up for next year as Marvel does it again and runs out of sight from DC comics.
