    Ighalo can not just stop scoring goals for club & Country. There is a ‘rumor’ going around in Edo, believe it or not, that there is a River near Uwelu, if you can deep yourself into the river, make your wish, all your wishes will come to pass. May be this guy did just that why he is scoring goals anywhere he goes. Don’t bash me o . l said that there is a RUMOR going around. l would have loved to recommend Iheanacho to go to the river o. laugh now. Enjoy your spring Sunday.

      Asoko, Yes o. there is a saying in Edo, that a child should not play outside so much as to forget his home. No matter how long l have been away form home, and believe me, it is so long l don’t even want say it, but my sole, my spirit and everything l have got is always there. Of course, our Omo-nor-oba Ukuakpolokpolor , the Awuare 2nd, will certainly welcome our young footballers to his Palace for his blessings if they seek for it. Asoko, my brother. let us he happy for God’s blessings today. Let us be happy for Ighalo, Iheanacho, Mikel and many others who are struggling out there because of Nigeria.
