Spot light on Sunday Mba
Prince Amukamara

Sunday Mba, scored the first and only goal of the game, displaying prodigious ball control with a right-footed juggle and a left-footed finish, to hand Nigeria their third Africa Cup of Nations title.


According to The Guardian UK, It says much for the baffling politics of Nigerian football that a week before the Cup of Nations began there were moves afoot
in the sports ministry to have Stephen Keshi replaced as coach. And it says much for the 52-year-old's strength of character, his combination of thick skin, single-mindedness and good humour that he was able to ignore all the distractions so that he stood on the touchline in Johannesburg on Sunday night beaming as only the second man – after the Egyptian Mahmoud El Gohary – to win the Cup of Nations as both player and coach.

After years of relentless campaign that would have seen mere mortals throw in the towel, Mrs Hope Oby Ofomata of the Igbo Language Campaign Committee has done what seemed impossible by the standards of Igbos in the diaspora, by doggedly fighting to get the two greatest institutions in academia to accept Igbo language as a course. This in effect means that Igbo language has now joined a distinguished list of languages to make into the Oxford/Cambridge Exam Board. This would also act as a catalyst for Igbo language to be strengthened within families, some of whom are ashamed of interacting with their children in Igbo. With this development the fear that Igbo language will become extinct in 75 years may prove to be just another pessimistic prediction.
Every good minded and genuine Igbo person who can make it to London should attend the event below to celebrate this unique achievement.
