A question that we all must answer rapidly; this is not a question about just the removal of the Weah and his gangs. It is the question of sincerity, not one with parochial interests. If you follow suit with the agenda and remove the CDC, you may get the power you desire, but progressive ideologues and their men and women will retreat to the barracks and possibly begin the last stage of ending bad leadership, in Liberia, by fighting to redeem the country. Our people have suffered far too long for progressives to stand aside, we stand ready to present ourselves as instruments for this national transformation. Op-ed

With 19 goals to his boots Simeon Nwankwo ignored by Nigeria’s coach Rohr

BBC—Striker Simeon ‘Simy’ Nwankwo’s goals for Italian Serie A side Crotone mean he is rated one of Europe’s best scorers in 2021, yet considered surplus to requirements by Nigeria. His 19 goals for Serie A’s bottom club is a new record for a Nigerian striker in a single season in one of Europe’s top leagues to overtake Yakubu’s Aiyegbeni’s 17 goals in the 2011-12 campaign for Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League. Despite these impressive statistics the Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr, has indicated Simy is not part of his plans…

By Andrew Jaye Pleebo, Maryland County–Pictures of residential housing emerging from the Cavalla Rubber Corporation (CRC) in Gedetarbo, Pleebo Sodoken District, Maryland County depicts a subhuman condition for workers.
