Good morning Everyone,
Nigeria Social Media space is awash with different views of what a respected Clergy said to his members with regards to marriage. I’ve resisted the urge to talk about it and in fact there’s a full match preview sent in by one from the audience here but I’ll just say a word or two on the issue.
First, the Clergy spoke to his members. He wasn’t giving a quick fix or shortcut on How to make anyone’s marriage work. His teaching and hence ‘excesses’ as some have termed it is, is to his flock. His members, his disciples. Picture your father at home saying, such and such are the guidelines if your interest is to have a successful marriage.
Secondly and consequent on the first point, you can either accept what he said or not. I mean he wasn’t basically talking to you. Perhaps he’s taught his folk prayer. He’s taught his members diligence and hardwork. But trust Nigerian young people, most of which are just busy bodies looking for how to while away time.
If you think you know what would make a marriage successful, go ahead and apply it in yours. No one would jail you for using your own formula. Hurling insults at him or saying ‘he doesn’t know what he’s saying’ describes how pathetic this generation have gotten.
Can we talk football Now?
We welcome Sunshine Stars as we look to bounce from last weekend’s draw. It’s a rescheduled fixture and aside from the draw at the weekend, we have had 100% record while playing at our new adopted home in Port Harcourt.
With this being one of the only two outstanding games we have, it is expedient we grab the vitals as we look to make up for lost ground. Interestingly, this is the same Sunshine Stars whose second half slump last season saw them give up their title chase.
This year, they started poorly but have somehow with a decent run made some ascent. They lost Tunde Adeniji and Paul Onobi but they have Okiki Afeolabi who has made a decent goals return this year. The other fellas Dayo Ojo and Dele Olorundare have also contributed decently.
I saw them play Rivers United in Port Harcourt earlier in the season. They put in a strong and resolute defence and they left PH with a point. Add that to how the reverse fixture went in Akure and we are all in no doubts why we must rise up to the standard.
We are a little short in midfield with Kelly Kester and Nzube Anaezemba both missing, no thanks to injuries. Kamal perhaps can be allowed to play yet again in the middle. For Kester, Razak Aliyu or Dare Ojo can be entrusted with the duty. Are we going to see a new face at Right Back?
Up-front, the goalscoring burdens continue. The quartet of Osadiaye, Azeez, Peter and Chukwude featured on Sunday but would there be a new face perhaps start for Obiozor or Leonard? We’d know by this afternoon.
If we seek a respectable finish, then today’s three points are not negotiable. We must be up for it.
We have updates on Twitter from 4pm via @EnyimbaEnyi. So join us then.
All for now, back tomorrow
