MainNews corespondent earlier learnt that, Wanda Nara, wife and agent of Inter talisman Mauro Icardi, says the 26-year-old striker does not want to leave the club despite the mysterious events of the last few weeks.

The Inter captain, Icardi has not played since he was stripped of the captaincy in February, with the player insisting that he is recovering from a knee injury.

However, many believe that the former Sampdoria forward could be on the move in the summer, with Real Madrid said to be long-term admirers.

Icardi added fuel to the fire when he did not appear at San Siro for Inter’s latest match against SPAL, but Wanda insists that this was nothing out of the ordinary.

“I would not say anything that could be misinterpreted,” Wanda told Sport Mediaset.

“This will be an important week for the entire Inter world. But I can say it was a positive week, because we talked and we came to something important.

“I want the best for Mauro: He wants to stay at Inter.” He added.

I lost the election due to low turnout of voters – Jimi Agbaje

Jimi Agbaje, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded Lagos State governorship election, says he lost the election due to low turnout of voters.

Agbaje, in an interview with The Punch newspaper after he lost the election to Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress with a margin of 533,304 votes, said the APC orchestrated the apathy and should be held accountable.

Although Agbaje has congratulated Sanwo-Olu on his victory at the poll, he also asserted that the rate of violence and how the presidential election was rigged with figures written for the APC all contributed to why the governorship and state house of assembly elections in Lagos recorded very low turnout.

He said: “From the outset, it was clear that the numbers were on our side and naturally, that was our comparable strength but the moment you had the numbers slashed, then we were at a disadvantage.
