Russia 2018: Rohr Reveals Nigeria Super Eagles’ Weakness Mainnews.blog May 30,2018 10:55 PM

Nigerian National Team, Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr and other staffs.
A problem identified is half solved is a popular saying and that perhaps applies to the Super Eagles where coach Gernot Rohr has mentioned the full-back position as the team’s major headache presently.

After struggling to a 1-1 draw against Congo DR on Monday albeit with a less strong squad, Rohr said more work is still needed to be done on the country’s fullbacks.

“We have some problems with our fullbacks, but we will work on this. We have a few days to be ready,” Rohr said in Port Harcourt.

For the Congo DR game, Elderson Echiejile started at left back, while Tyronne Ebuehi was at right back position.

Ebuehi later gave way to Shehu Abdullahi after he was forced out by injury in the 76th minute, while Ola Aina replaced Elderson.

The Chelsea defender was culpable for the penalty, which led to the DRC equaliser and Rohr did not hide his disappointment on the somewhat needless foul.

The other fullbacka in the squad is Russia-based Brian Idowu and Stephen Eze.

Rohr further said he will only take four fullbacks to Russia.

“We’ve five fullbacks, we can only take four (to World Cup),” he said

Already, Rohr has hinted that medical tests will be carried out on Ebuehi, who is suspected to have cupped a muscle injury in the game against Congo DR, before he makes up his mind on adding him or dropping him from the final World Cup squad.

“We have to test him and be sure of what the problem is, we hope it is not something serious,” Rohr told PREMIUM TIMES in Port Harcourt.

With the Congo DR game now done and dusted, the next stop for the Eagles is in London where they will face England’s Three Lions in Wembley on Saturday.

From London, the delegation will fly into Bad Tatzmannsdorf, a city in Austria where they will spend eight days at the world-renowned Avita Resort before flying to Russia.

In-between the final camping in Austria, the Super Eagles will play a final pre-World Cup friendly against the Czech Republic at the Rudolf Tonn Stadium (just outside Vienna) on Wednesday next week.

UNIOSUN shuts down over unions, management crisis

May 30/2018 10:51

Osun State University (UNIOSUN)
The management of the Osun State University on Monday announced the closure of the institution, following what it referred to as “the notorious activities of some non-teaching staff members”.

A statement signed by the Registrar of the school, Gafar Adebayo Shittu, said the governing council of the institution had approved its closure “with immediate effect”.

The statement said the non-teaching members of staff of the institution were involved ”in unwholesome activities under the guise of unionism”.

The Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU); Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), had been at loggerheads with the management of the institution over the suspension of 10 of members.

They have been engaged in series of protests which was extended to Monday at the university campus amidst lectures.

They also embarked on a three-week strike, which was called off in April, but they had continued to agitate for other entitlements which were allegedly denied them by the Vice Chancellor and the school’s management.

The unions also called for the probe of the Vice Chancellor, Labo Popoola, for alleged mismanagement of N106 million. They also urged Mr Popoola to account for over N3 billion ”handed over to the him by his predecessor”.

Stating reasons for the closure, Mr Shittu said the activities of the unions ”posed a danger to the lives and properties within and around the university campuses”.

“Management wishes to sincerely apologise to parents, guardians and students for any inconveniences that this closure may cause,” it said.

“Efforts are geared towards addressing the prevalent lawlessness, finally.

“We urge our law abiding staff and students to remain calm and stay away from the campuses in the mean time.”

Responding to the development, the Chairman of NASU in the institution, Isaiah Fayemi, told PREMIUM TIMES that the statement by the Registrar was misleading.

“We have been protesting in the school, and it has been peaceful, so to say that we are making the place unsafe is not true,” he said.

Mr Fayemi noted that the unions also embarked on a peaceful protest on Monday even when lectures were ongoing, and ”nothing was amiss”.

“As I am speaking to you now, 10 of our members have been suspended because we exposed the fraudulent activities of the management,” he stated.

“They want to sack us by all means, that is what they want to do, but we are protesting and we are doing that peacefully.”
