SPORT: Suarez Bids Barcelona Farewell

Denis Suarez

Denis Suarez has posted a farewell message to Barcelona ahead of his anticipated loan switch to Arsenal.

The 25-year-old is expected to be announced as an Arsenal player on Thursday, a day after Barca confirmed the deal before removing the statement from their website.

In the announcement Barca stated Suarez would spend the rest of the season on loan in the Premier League, while also revealing he had penned a contract extension until 2021.

That update was swiftly taken down and official confirmation has yet to come from Arsenal.

However, Suarez's latest Twitter post hints there will be no doubt about the switch after Thursday's deadline. Alongside an image of the Barcelona squad,

Suarez wrote: "You're a group of amazing people!

"Thank you for everything, see you soon. Good luck and Forca Barca."

Suarez, who has played 71 times after signing from Villarreal in 2016, will link up with Unai Emery for a second time after working with the Gunners boss at Sevilla.

The deal taking him to England includes the option for a permanent transfer to be completed in the summer.

Arsenal will hope to be put in a position where triggering that clause is a formality.

They are acquiring Suarez in the hope of seeing him add more attacking creativity to a squad which already boasts plenty of international performers in that area.

Emery said of his desire to get fresh faces on board after a 2-1 victory over Cardiff on Tuesday: "We need wingers.

"Suarez, who I know, has this quality."

Asked whether the 25-year-old Spaniard would handle the physicality of the Premier League, Emery replied: "I don't know now.

"It's a challenge for him, and also [it is a challenge for him] to help us."

Our generation must change their approach to marriage – IK Ogbonna

Actor IK Ogbonna has stated that this generation of ours needs to change its approach towards marriage.

IK Ogbonna who is currently reported to be having marital crisis with his wife Sonia Ogbonna, shared this piece of advice on Instagram.

“Our generation must change their approach to marriage for the sake of the next generation .
This is not just for me as an individual but for those who need it .
90% of marriages are unhappy and wear fake smiles and pretend to be happy while depression is the case .
First we must remember that u married a friend , a support system , not an enemy or competition. You are now one . And since u chose that person out of a world population of over 7 billion ppl , ur job is to protect that person always and make each other happy “Most people get married believing a myth. They believe that marriage is a beautiful box full of things they have longed for… companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc.⁣

The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out.⁣

There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage.⁣

A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising,
of keeping the box full.
If you take out more than you put in,
the box will be empty.“⁣
-J Allen 🙏🏽💕🏠⁣ If we don’t fix marriages in this generation
It’s only going to get worse and our children would be the one to suffer it.”

Lassa Fever kills 50 people in Ondo

News reports have revealed wide spread panic in Ondo State after 50 deaths were recorded over Lassa Fever in the state.

According to the reports, the residents of the state as well as the medical practitioners are worried.

Recall that a resurfacing of the endemic disease had been reported by Daily Post weeks ago.

The disease has now found its way to Akure, Ondo State, shortly after reports of the disease breaking out in the towns bordering the state.

Sources at the Federal Medical Center, FMC, Owo, have revealed that the state government is not doing enough to curb the spread of the disease.

A medical practitioner at the health facility revealed that the situation is almost beyond control adding that they have run out of space at the isolation ward where these patients are being treated.

Pleading anonymity, the source also revealed how a Lassa Fever patient “mysteriously” disappeared from the hospital.

She blamed the incident on the negligence of some of her colleagues.

“What we currently facing, is quite beyond what anyone would ever imagine.

“Almost all the patients in the isolation ward are those that have contracted Lassa fever and most of the reported cases are from the border communities within Ose Local Government area of the state.

“It’s quite sad how the state government is not even attending to the situation.

“Citizens are dying from preventable disease, but the government is not showing any concern at all.”

Another source from the state Ministry of Heath, who pleaded anonymity, worried over the fact that a state of emergency was yet to be called within the health sector.

Another doctor called the governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, out for doing little to combat the spread of the disease, blaming it on his lackadaisical attitude.

“From the ministry here, we have approached the governor, on the need to urgently arrest the situation but he his not seeing it that way.

“He claims there are no funds to spend on the medical needs of these people (Lassa fever patient) but let’s be frank with ourselves, all those money being spent on political activities in the state, where are they coming from?

“I believe it is high time our political leaders started to set their priorities right. Because in the real sense of it, it’s those that will vote for them that are dying so cheaply.

“You won’t believe that as terrible as the situation is at present, there’s no single sensitization or awareness going on in the state as regards the outbreak, all in the name of that there is no fund.

“Even for the outbreak to effectively contained, schools within the affected communities should have been shut with intensive awareness taken to market places, churches, mosques and other public places.

“It will interest you to know that health workers might down tools if anyone of us is affected.

The Nation reports that the State Commissioner Of Health, Dr Wahab Adegbenro, insisted on the fact it would take the combined effort of stakeholders to fight the disease as the state would be unable to handle the situation on its own.

He revealed that it cost about N1.2m to treat one Lassa patient, which was far too high for the state to afford considering the number of people infected.

Dr. Adegbenro called on the chairmen representing the affected Local Government Areas in the State, Security Agencies, Development Partners and all other stakeholders to come up with strategies to help combat the disease.

The Ondo State Epidemiologist, Dr. Stephen Fagbemi, recalled that during the last outbreak of Lassa Fever, 27 states were affected with Ondo And Edo topping the list.

They reportedly accounted for 80 percent of the affected including the mortalities.

In his words, Dr Olalekan Ojo of the Federal Medical Center, Owo, noted that there are more patients affected than any other state in Nigeria ”and the whole budget of the state cannot handle”

He also said that FMC Owo, is unable to keep up with the ever growing number of cases due to lack of manpower and funds.

Nollywood is one of the worst places to have female friends – Actress Nazo Ekezie

Actress, Nazo Ekezie has stated that Nollywood movie industry is one of the worst places to have female friends.
According to her, the love exhibited in the industry is not genuine.

She pointed this out in an interview:

“Women don’t like each other. Please, quote me, Nollywood is one of the worst places to have female friends.Because most female actresses see genuine compliments as something else. The worst are those who are doing better and well paid, endorsements and all, with the fame, yet they still say rubbish about other actress in the industry” .

“Every battle I have faced in Nollywood is surrounded around women. It’s that bad. They believe once they have made it, nobody else should.These big actresses (the A-List). They are scary. Seriously. You would be in your corner, thinking they are all made and won’t stress it again. But they are the ones that are more jealous. Even on set”.

Nazo Ekezie also used the opportunity to speak on her favourite qualities in a man.

”I have always looked out for someone who fame doesn’t entice or affect. One wouldn’t consider it a problem. I want someone who would be patient enough to know me and not look at me from the movie angle. I would love someone who sees me as Nazo and not an actress all the time.Well, I’m not a physical look kind of person but then you won’t be looking like masquerade though”.
