We”ll Build Upon the Success of 9th Assembly: Oyo Speaker Assures As He takes Oath of office For a 2nd Term



Rt Hon Adebo Ogundoyin who was on Wednesday reelected as Speaker of the 10th Oyo State House of Assembly has promised to build on the enviable achievements of the 9th Assembly.

Hon Ogundoyin said this in his acceptance speech shortly after taking oath of office as the Speaker of the 10th Oyo State House of Assembly

The Speaker appreciated the Oyo State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde for believing in him and for all his support.

He also expressed his gratitude to all his colleagues for the trust and confidence they reposed in him for the second time.

” I stand before you today with immense gratitude and a deep sense of responsibility as I accept the honor of being elected as the Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly for a second term.

” I am truly humbled by the trust and confidence you have placed in me and other elected principal officers of the House, and I assure you that we will work tirelessly to exceed the groundbreaking achievements of the 9th Oyo State House of Assembly.

” First and foremost, I want to express my profound gratitude to everyone whose support is the reason I am up here right now to continue as the Speaker of this great Assembly.

” While appreciating the Most High for making this day a reality, I am equally deeply indebted to His Excellency, Engr. Seyi Makinde for his all round support, and for blazing the trail in good governance and quality leadership across the country. My warmest and sincerest gratitude also goes to all my colleagues whose support, encouragement and prayers made this dream and ambition a reality – (I really can’t thank you all enough). ” Oyo Speaker said

He described his reelection as significant and momentous, and assured that the 10th Oyo State House of Assembly will build upon the foundation already laid by him and the leadership of the 9th Assembly.

” This re-election is not just significant for me and my family, but also momentous for the entire people of my constituency and by extension the sons and daughters of Ibarapaland. It is an epoch-making moment in the history of the legislature in Oyo State because this is the first time we are having a Speaker elected for two consecutive Assemblies – uninterrupted. It is equally not on record that a lawmaker from my zone has become a Speaker of Oyo State House of Assembly on two occasions let alone a Speaker for two consecutive Assemblies. This unambiguously places a greater burden on me to deliver and to ensure that my name and that of other remaining 31 honorable members are written in gold at the end of this 10th Assembly.

” As we begin another journey of four years, I assure you all that our dedication and seriousness of purpose will only intensify. We will build upon the foundation we have laid, working in collaboration with all stakeholders to place Oyo State House of Assembly on a higher pedestal. ” He said

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.
