“Drogba” said:
“Football is everyone's sport, football brings people together, and football unites.

“We can see it today with all these people gathered in front of the headquarters of the Ivorian football federation.

”It's no secret that our football is going badly, and that is why with my team we are committed to contributing to the rebirth of Ivorian football.

“If my goal was not driven by a deep desire to give back to Ivorian football all that it has given me, to contribute to the development of football in my country, and if God was not in this candidacy, it would be difficult to be in front of you today,”
“Drogba” remains his country's highest goal scorer with 65 goals in 105 appearances and is the third most capped player after “Kolo Toure” who has 120 and “Didier Zokora” with 123 caps respectively.






The 42-year-old represented the Elephants in three World Cup and five AFCON tournaments in his 12-year spell.


 Nollywood actress, "Ada Ameh" has shared her thoughts on the feminism movement. "In a recent interview with The Nation, the talented actress described herself as a feminist and spoke on how it affects relationships."


" She, however, added that this does not mean she doesn't want to have a man of her own."
 She went on to add that being a feminist doesn't mean one shouldn't submit to their partner as that is the Christian thing to do.
"I am a feminist but I am not that type of woman that would not love to have a man.
Being a feminist doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be a man.
As a Christian, submitting yourself to your man doesn’t make you a fool,” she said.
"The Benue-born actress who had her first child as a teenager, says she has no regrets about it.
Her words: “I can never regret having my child at 14."
God forbid! The truth is that the ways of God are so different from the ways of man.
Just imagine me at this age if I am not married and don’t have a child.
I am not saying marriage is the ultimate but we both know what I am talking about.”
