Premier League: Mourinho tells Manchester United to sell Pogba

No comments

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has added Paul Pogba to a list of players he may offload this summer.

Pogba’s relationship with his Portuguese manager has hit a new low after the former Chelsea boss substituted the Frenchman during the defeat to West Brom on Sunday.

The defeat handed the Premier League title to Manchester City earlier than expected.

It is not the first time Mourinho has lost faith in Pogba this season.

He has repeatedly been dropped by Mourinho this season.

And Daily Mail UK reports that Mourinho has finally decided to let the Frenchman leave the club.

The newspaper claimed that Mourinho wants to sell Pogba, although there is set to be resistance from the United board.

Ed Woodward will not want to sell a player United paid a club record transfer fee of £89million to sign just two years ago.

The 25-year-old midfielder has struggled to fit into Mourinho’s system and follow his manager’s instructions.

The top 7 reasons why people cheat

1 comment

What causes a person to commit adultery? The question does not have a unique answer, since several factors can cause someone to betray his partner. A study published in the Journal of Sex Research, incidentally, found that there are 7 main reasons why people are unfaithful.

Know the main reasons, listed by the survey of 495 adults with an average age of 20:

Why people betray their partners

1. Lack of love: According to the survey, 77% of respondents who committed adultery claimed that they were unfaithful because they no longer love their partners.

2. Variety: Some respondents also revealed that they "jumped the fence" because they were looking for a wider variety of sexual partners.

3. Lack of commitment: 41% said they were unfaithful because they did not really feel committed to their partners.

4. Occasion: Situational factors such as excessive alcohol consumption, for example, were the "excuse" for betrayal cited by 70% of study participants.

5. Self-esteem: more than half of the interviewees (57%) mentioned that the main motivation to betray was insecurity and the attempt to increase self-esteem

6. Anger: 43% of people surveyed said they committed adultery for revenge or being angry with their partners.

7. Sex Only: About one-third of participants said they were unfaithful simply because they felt the need to have more sex.

UI, AAU hike tuition fees: Fear grips students as other varsities may follow suit

No comments


Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged the authorities of the University of Ibadan (UI) and Adekunle Ajasin University (AAUA) to immediately reverse their increment in fees.

While the UI increased fees for students’ professional training and accommodation, AAUA increased its tuition fees.

The organization said the universities ought to have carefully considered the effects of high fees on accessibility and the vision of education that they seek to achieve.

SERAP in a statement on Thursday by its deputy director, Timothy Adewale said: “The universities are advised to find solutions to their funding difficulties elsewhere. But if they fail to reverse these fees within 7 days of the publication of this statement, SERAP would take appropriate legal action to compel them to do so.

“The dramatic increases would have the effect of discriminating against disadvantaged students who may be unable to pay the new fees, and who are not granted any exemption, thereby creating a classification based on the economic and social status of their parents. The increases would also undermine the students’ rights to education and equal protection guarantees.

“The inability of the students or their parents to pay these fees would result in an absolute deprivation of a meaningful opportunity for the students to enjoy educational benefit. Increasing fees because the authorities are not adequately funding the two institutions is victimising the students over an issue they have neither control nor responsibility.

“Students that are unable to pay these fees may become disillusioned, gradually disassociate from the universities, and eventually drop out entirely. When a student is excluded from gaining the full benefits available in public school because of inability to pay fees, the effect is exclusion which naturally imposes a lifetime hardship on a discrete class of students not accountable for their disabling status.

“SERAP also urges the leadership of the National Assembly to come up with legislation that would: end arbitrary imposition of fees in our public schools; grant exemptions to students from disadvantaged background; ensure that our universities are adequately funded on an equitable basis to ensure the proper exercise of the rights to equal protection of law and education and redress inequalities in education provision.

“The right to education is too important to be left to the budgetary circumstances of individual university or socio-economic status of parents and families. Any perceived financial hardship faced by the UI and AAUA cannot justify the violations of the students’ constitutional guarantees of equal protection and Nigeria’s international obligations to ensure equal access to the right to education. The right to education is not a commodity for sale.

“Nigeria cannot continue to compete and prosper in the global arena when university students are chased away because they cannot afford to pay fees. And if Nigeria cannot compete, it cannot lead. If our students continue to face victimisation, discrimination and exclusion on the grounds of their socio-economic status, Nigeria will become a nation of limited human potential. It would be tragic if the authorities at UI and AAUA and the government of President Muhammadu Buhari allow this to happen.”
