I’m Going Back To Medical Practice – Ex-Osun PDP Chair



The former Caretaker Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State of Osun, Dr. Adekunle Akindele, has disclosed that he will be going back to his practice as a medical doctor after 12 months of steering the affairs of the party in the state.

Akindele stated that he is a medical doctor before he was called to serve as the PDP Caretaker Committee Chairman, disclosing that he will be eager to contribute his quota if there is another call to serve the people.

He stated this while speaking with journalists on the recent judgement of the supreme court which affirmed Governor Ademola Adeleke as the duly elected governor of the state.

Akindele said: “I am a medical doctor and I was called upon to serve the people and the party and to the glory of God, I have been able to record some successes, and after now I would be going back to my practice. If there’s another call to serve the people and the party, I will be eager to contribute my quota.

‘”I have some special people to thank for their support in the course of my assignment in Osun. I want to thank Dr. Deji Adeleke, a father figure, and one of the biggest financiers of the party. I thank him for believing in me throughout my tour of duty in the state”.

Speaking on some of the challenges he faced during his tenure, Akindele stressed that the party has issue of mistrust among party members, which emanated from the governorship primaries in the state.

He said the APC then was taking advantage of the crisis by pouching into some of their members and winning them to their side.

According to him, “We had issue of mistrust among party members, which emanated from the governorship primaries in the state that took place before I assumed office. And it was so obvious that if we did not do anything about it and resolve all issues raised by aggrieved party members, it would have affected our July 18, 2022 governorship election in the state.

“One thing we observed was that All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state was already taking advantage of the crises, by pouching and encroaching into our party and winning some of our members to their side.

“At the end of the day, we were able to reconcile a sizeable number of PDP members. We made them see why we had to come together as one big family to kick out the uninspiring APC administration”.

Fulham 0-2 Chelsea: Mudryk, Broja strike to earn Blues their second league win of the season



Chelsea bagged two first-half goals to seal a crucial win over West London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage and move up to 11th on the Premier League table.

The Blues flew out of the blocks as they debuted their new Infinite Athlete kit and created the first chance of the match after only 80 seconds, but Armando Broja could not capitalise.

Chelsea looked bright with Enzo Fernandez conducting affairs, and they picked the Cottagers apart.

Mykhailo Mudryk was looking electric and dangerous. The Ukrainian winger opened the scoring on 18 as he controlled a pass from Levi Colwill before slotting the ball beyond Bernd Leno.

It was Mudryk’s first Premier League goal following his £88 million move from Shakhtar Donetsk in January. And within seconds, Chelsea had their second.

Tim Ream had a moment to forget as he gave the ball away to Cole Palmer. The young English playmaker then slipped Broja in, but Ream hit the ball off the Albanian striker as the ball trickled past Leno.

Fulham tried to find gaps behind Marc Cucurella and Axel Disasi on the right side of Chelsea’s defence, but it was not working. Chelsea controlled the game and held their two-goal going into the break.

In the second 45, Fulham came out with more attacking poise, and it helped that Mudryk went off with a knock, giving Fulham the impetus to come forward, but Chelsea’s defence stood resolute.

Vinicius and Alex Iwobi came on for Fulham and helped their side find spaces beyond Chelsea’s backline, but the Boys in Blue defended well and showed they were still dangerous.

Ian Maatsen, on for Mudryk, hit the post, and Leno had to be quick to smother Fernandez’s rebound effort. Fulham forced Chelsea to work for their lead, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men looked up to it.

Substitute Tom Cairney created a lovely chance for Sasa Lukic. However, Robert Sanchez stuck out a brilliant leg to save the effort and keep his side in it.

On 83, Willian tried an effort from outside the box, but it did not cause any problems for Sanchez as Chelsea ran out 2-0 victors

Man Utd winger Anthony in contention for Galatasaray UEFA champions league clash



Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Antony could feature for Manchester United against Galatasaray after rejoining his ranks at Old Trafford.

The Brazil international forward was granted indefinite leave by the Red Devils following a series of alarming allegations made against him by former girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin.

Antony has been back in his homeland since then, allowing him to meet with police forces in Sao Paulo.

He returned to England last week and has held five hours of talks with Greater Manchester Police.

The 23-year-old winger maintains his innocence – having also faced accusations from two other women.

United have allowed him to focus on off-field matters of late, but revealed ahead of a Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace that Antony had been given a green light to return to training and was once again available for selection.

He has only taken in one session since then, suggesting that he will be short on match fitness, but Ten Hag says the South American is in his thoughts ahead of the Champions League group stage meeting with Galatasaray on Tuesday.

The Dutch coach has said: “Antony will be in consideration but yesterday was his first time back in team training. We have a final training, then we’ll make a decision.”

Ten Hag added when delivering an update on Lisandro Martinez – with the World Cup-winning Argentine defender still struggling with a long-standing foot injury: “I can confirm, yeah. Licha Martinez will undergo surgery and the team news is Antony can probably return.”

Antony’s last appearance for United came in the club’s 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on September 3.

He was removed from the Brazil squad for the last round of international fixtures and has not registered a goal for club or country since April 16.
