World Bank Lists 40 Economies with Reforms on Women Empowerment

The regulatory environment for women’s economic participation has improved over the past two years, but Nigeria is missing mention among 40 countries that enacted 62 reforms that will help women. The women– half of the world’s population, would need the reforms to realise their potential and contribute to economic growth and development, a new World Bank study has said. Still, the results are uneven, as women in many countries have only a fraction of the legal rights of men, holding back their economic and social development. The study, “Women Business and the Law (WBL) 2020”, measures 190 economies, tracking how laws affect women at different stages in their working lives and focusing on those laws applicable in the main business city. It covers reforms in eight areas that a...

Brendan Rodgers Speaks on Maddison Leaving Leicester City for Man Utd

Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, has insisted James Maddison will not move to Manchester United. Rodgers, speaking to the media on Friday, said the player will not be affected by the interest from the Red Devils. Maddison, 23, has been a revelation at the King Power Stadium, since making a £22.5million switch from Norwich in June 2018. This season he has made his senior England debut and scored six goals and had three assists in the Premier League. “It is difficult every time we have a press conference to come up with various ways to say: ‘no, he is not for sale’. “James is very much a big part of our plan here. Having worked with him for a period of time and seen lots of rumours and gossip around his potential transfer from here, the boy is so ...

Man Arrested By UAE For Smuggling Diamonds In His Gut

Authorities in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates have arrested a yet to be identified African who attempted to smuggle 297 grams of raw diamonds in his gut, the way cocaine or heroine is smuggled.

Arteta Speaks on Arsenal’s Move for Boateng

Arsenal head coach, Mikel Arteta, has said the club is working on transfers this month. Speaking after a 1-0 win over Leeds United in the FA Cup on Monday, the Spaniard, however, refused to give names. When specifically asked about a potential move for Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng, Arteta told Sky Sports: “We don’t talk about any transfers and we are working on a few things. “When the club has something to say I will let you know.” It is believed that the Gunners will be looking to do loan deals in January. Having spent in excess of £130million last summer, Arsenal stretched themselves financially even without Champions League football. Arteta is seeking defensive reinforcements, with Calum Chambers out for up to nine months. ...

Noble Igwe Receives Criticisms for a Photo he Shared Showcasing his Hometown.

Noble Igwe has responded after he received heat for a photo he shared to showcase his hometown to his followers. Days ago, the 360nobs founder shared a photo of himself trudging through a shallow stream with a keg of water on his head in his hometown, Umuomaku, Anambra state. He captioned the photo: "Son of the Soil. Went to Ubo to have my bath and fetch drinking water. Christmas in Umuomaku is incomplete without a trip to the stream. Proudly Igbo."

Some accused him of portraying Igbo land as a place where there are no boreholes and bathrooms, others said that he obviously has a bathroom and running water in his home in the village but wanted to show off to  his followers. Some Twitter users went as far as claiming that the keg on his head was empt...
