Arsenal player, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has joined the list of foreigners who find the Super Eagles jerseys stunning. Taking to Twitter, he expressed his admiration for the jerseys which have been named the best for the Russia 2018 world cup.
The Super Eagles Jerseys and kits were launched on the 1st of June and sold out hours after. Nike which designed the kit stated that they have no plans of restocking the kits which are currently worn by foreigners with pride. This has prompted some Nigerians to make replicas which are fast selling.
Few days ago, one of those selling the fake jerseys in Nigeria was interviewed by BBC. He spoke of the gains he was making. The counterfeit can be gotten for as low as N4,000 compared to the original that goes for N40, 000. Many Nigerians, even those who can afford the original at its expensive price, have resorted to wearing the fake which really doesn’t look much different from the original. This is due to the delay Nike took in launching the sale and also not launching in Nigeria.
The Nigerian team is placed in group D alongside Argentina, Croatia and Iceland. Their first game will be against Croatia on the 16th of June. Before then, the team will play a friendly against Czech Republic in Australia where they are camped.
Contrary to what most Nigerians are expecting, there will be no public holiday on June 12 this year, despite President Muhammadu’s announcement on Wednesday.
Buhari, in a press release, moved Democracy Day from May 29 to June 12.
The president also announced that MKO Abiola, winner of the annulled election, will be posthumously awarded the highest honour in the land, GCFR.
However, part of the statement read: “The investiture will take place on Tuesday June 12th, 2018, a date which in future years will replace May 29th as a National Public Holiday in celebration of Nigeria Democracy Day.”
A source around the presidency confirmed that the date will be a public holiday in future years, but not in 2018.
The House of Representatives is presently in rowdy session over President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration of June 12 as Democracy Day.
Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, is, however, trying to keep the angry members under control as the debate on the new Democracy Day continues.
Recall that Buhari, in a statement issued yesterday, had declared Abiola as the winner of the annulled June 12 election and replacing May 29 with June 12 as the new Democracy Day.
Buhari had argued that June 12, 1993, the date of the election considered to be the fairest in Nigeria’s history, “was far more symbolic of democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29 or even October 1”.
Linda Ikeji set to move out of her N450million Banana Island mansion into her baby daddy’s house (photos)
When Linda Ikeji moved into the mansion in 2016, she clearly stated that the only condition that will have her move out of it is when she finds a husband.
"Living in the house with my family. When I marry, I will move out! *sad face*..lol" she said back then.
Well she is moving out now and she gave the hint on her Instagram page earlier today.
