    I told you guys, Ighalo is never going to stop scoring goals. Take it or live it. As an Edoman, and in life, you can change if you really want to. Look at Salah of Egypt and what he has become in Liverpool, he didn’t start that way. Look at Samuel Chukwueze, can’t you see how he has changed from when he played in under 17 World cup in Chile to his present status playing in Spain? My fellow citizens, forget about Ighalo games before the World Cup and/or during the World cup itself in Russia, our Ighalo has since moved on to become the #1 in Africa. Accept it or Ighalo will leave you behind. Have a happy Sunday. The weather is beautiful where l live. Let me hope it is so wherever you are.
