2. #Mourinho

Martial skipped United’s pre-season camp to stay with his pregnant girlfriend in Paris.

Jose Mourinho and Man Utd fined Martial £180,000 for his decision.

While Mourinho might be considering getting rid of Martial, Croatian player, Mateo Kovacic does not want to have anything to do with the Portuguese coach.

The player rejected the chance to join Manchester United after a €60 million (£53m) offer was submitted to Real Madrid because he did not like Mourinho’s style of play.


3.  #Asaba2018

Asaba answered present on the social media trend register after it gave participants of the Africa Senior Athletics Championship in Asaba 'food for thought'.

Reports and stories surrounding the start of the event which takes place at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba varied between sad and downright embarassing.

Some of the embarrassing things experienced by the visiting athletes from other African countries include; being stranded for up to 3 days at the Murtala Mohammed airport in Lagos because there was no connecting flight to Asaba, flying to Asaba in a plane that was held together with duct tape, and having issues with accommodation and accreditation in Asaba.

4. #Tambuwal

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State officially announced his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The governor made the announcement in Sokoto on Wednesday, thereby ending weeks of speculations of his plan to leave the party that brought him to power.

He is the 3rd APC Governor to dump the party in one week, after Benue and Kwara state governors moved to the PDP.

The development is the climax of Tambuwal’s face-off with his political godfather and former Governor, Senator Aliyu Wamakko.

Tambuwal said his decision to move over to PDP followed consultations among his associates.
