Staff, (Punch) - Footballer Eniola Aluko has spoken publicly for the first time about the “bullying and discrimination” she says she was subjected to by England head coach Mark Sampson. In her first broadcast interview since details of the controversy emerged earlier this month, the Chelsea Ladies striker - who has 102 caps and scored 33 goals for her country - told the BBC:
Kemi Yesufu, (Daily Independent) All over the world living in luxury is strictly the preserve of the rich and famous. It takes millions of naira, thousands of pounds/dollars to finance the lifestyle of the people we are talking about. They drive state-of-the-art cars, own yachts, private jets, live in homes that inspire imagination, and holiday in the best resorts.
Kemi Yesufu, (Daily Independent) - One of the ways to announce your arrival into Lagos high society is by shopping at Palms Shopping Mall. Tayo Amusan owns The Palms; now you know why he is one of those who live a life of luxury in Nigeria. They drive state-of-the-art cars, own yachts, private jets, live in homes that inspire imagination, and holiday in the best resorts.
KUNLE ADEYEMI, (Punch) - When people buy new vehicles, especially the state-of-the-art ones, prayers are said. On such occasions, it is usual to hear supplications like; ”may this car never turn out to be your coffin or may it never be robbers‘ property.” However, the situation in the country, especially Lagos in the last two months, has thrown up a big contradiction.
UBONG UKPONG, (Daily Sun) - The pains, trauma and difficulties that many Nigerians have experienced in the last few years in their bid to seek greener pastures abroad are better imagined than felt. Those who told you they have ‘crossed’, seldom have the courage to relate their predicaments and bitter experiences to the people back at home.
