Aliko-Dangote1

On this day in 2015;Zambian President, Edgar Lungu  lauded the business ingenuity of the President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote saying his business expansion across Africa is worthy of emulation by African businessmen in the task of continental development.

Also on this day in 2015;NATIONAL  Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Asaba, the Delta State capital, was taken aback when a middle aged man identified as Christopher Anirah, who was presumed  dead,  made  a surprise appearance to testify before it.

Anirah, was subpoenaed by the tribunal to give evidence in an  election petition matter between Hon. Gibson Ighofose Akporehe of the All Progressives Congress, APC,  and Hon. Evelyn Omavowan Oboro, of the  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, told the tribunal that his death certificate was allegedly forged by the APC House of Representatives candidate.

Meanwhile, Hon Evelyn Oboro, in her preliminary objection, asked  the tribunal to dismiss Akporehe’s petition for lack of  merit, saying it is an abuse of court process. Akporehe who is the candidate of APC in Okpe, Sapele and Uvwie federal constituency in the 2015 election, through his counsel, Mr  Charles Umweni, had told the tribunal that the witness he intends to call (Anirah)  cannot come to the tribunal to testify, claiming that he died after suffering a cardiac attack. But, at the resumed hearing of the matter, yesterday, in Asaba, somebody who claimed to be Anirah stormed the tribunal and stepped into the witness box to give evidence when the chairman of the three-man tribunal panel, Justice Adebukole Banjoko, called out the name.

The sudden appearance of the said Anirah  created commotion in the tribunal  as  the bewildered  audience started shuffling and murmuring in low tones over the appearance of a ‘dead man’ in court, prompting  Justice Banjoko to call for calm.

And on this day in 2014;Former President Goodluck Jonathan stressed the need for a revolutionary expansion of the oil and gas industry for the country to become the leading African nation in the sector.

He said: “The nation’s gas known to be of much quantity than oil, when maximally utilised, will not only boost the economy and create employment, but will to a very large extent, reduce cases of gas flaring to its barest minimum by 2020.”

Place your bet in Nigeria only on 1xBet on the most popular matches and win

The current Champions League season has already brought a lot of sensations, but there was no
intrigue in the first semi-final. PSG confidently took on RB Leipzig 3-0 and reached the
tournament final for the first time in its history. You should bet in Nigeria only on 1xBet.ng to
get the best conditions for earning money and numerous bonuses for active gambling.

Before the game began, it was already clear from the RB Leipzig players’ emotions that they
were not confident in their victory. The PSG players’ mood demonstrated the contrary. At the
very beginning of the game, the Parisians began to attack the opponent’s goal, with Neymar
keeping wasting his chances. PSG fans were pleased with Kylian Mbappe joining the game,
which significantly sharpened the team’s attack. However, the hero of the game was not the
Frenchman, but Angel Di Maria, who scored a goal and gave two assists. Only on 1xBet, you
should bet in Nigeria to get plenty of benefits from the best bookmaker on the market.

  1. RB Leipzig demonstrated no satisfactory game, which may have been affected by the following
    factors:
    1. Absence of Timo Werner. Of course, the German wanted to finish the season quickly to
    start a successful career with Chelsea, but he could also help the former team in difficult
    times.
  2. The tactic was too risky. 3-4-3 with a smooth transition to 3-5-2 is not the best solution
    against attacking PSG. This largely affected the result. Cool live casino on 1xBet.ng has a
    lot of profitable offers and games with huge prize money, so that everyone could earn
    more.
  3. Poor leaders’ game. Sabitzer looked lost on the field, Poulsen wasn’t visible either. The
    fans could only see Upamecano’s efforts, but the defender alone couldn’t withstand one
    of the best attacks in the world.

It is also worth mentioning the game of PSG. The Parisians played a great match and deserved to
qualify for the final.

Profitable 1xBet sport betting with lots of advantages

PSG is performing well this season. Profitable 1xBet sport betting brought considerable profit to
all the bettors who bet on the Parisians. But we should mention RB Leipzig as well. The
Germans have had a great season and surprised many fans.

This success is attributed to the head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who seems to remain with the
team for at least another season. The specialist asked the management to buy several forwards
and a defender, and also insisted that Dayot Upamecano remained at the club. Profitable sport
betting at 1xBet is supplemented by numerous bonuses and profitable promotions that
additionally help you to earn money.

The Bundesliga is to start soon, so RB Leipzig should do its best on the transfer market and have
a good pre-season preparation to improve the team’s results.
