Ibrahimovic Confirms Man United Switch

Former Sweden striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has confirmed he will sign for Manchester United after leaving Paris St-Germain.

The 34-year-old, capped 116 times for his country, was out of contract after four years at the French champions, the BBC reports.

He will link up again with his former Inter Milan boss, Jose Mourinho, at Old Trafford.

“Time to let the world know. My next destination is Manchester United,” the BBC quoted the striker as saying on social media.

United, who finished fifth in the Premier League last season and failed to qualify for the Champions League, has not confirmed the move.

Ibrahimovic is yet to complete a medical and sign a contract with the 20-time English champions.

The Swede made his debut for hometown club Malmo in 1999 and went on to play for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and AC Milan before joining PSG.

He has scored 392 goals in 677 games and last season was his most prolific, with 50 goals in 51 matches – a record for the French club.

"You have case to answer", Court Tells Ohakim

A ‎Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered a former Governor of Imo State, Mr. Ikedi Ohakim, to open his defence to debunk the charges of money laundering instituted against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

New Forex Regime

Early this week, just the second week in the life of the flexible foreign exchange regime, the policy has slid into revisionism, rejigs and reforms. First, at the point of take off, the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, was forced to abandon its plans to admit only 8 to 10 banks into its Forex Principal Dealership category after some industry stakeholders impressed on it, the implication of the competition of the categorization. The apex bank had to throw the window open wider to accommodate as many banks as possible. Next, on Monday while hosting the big business elites, President Muhammadu Buhari, who had endorsed the new forex regime made a full 360 degree reversal and discredited the value of the new order, apparently displeased at the new exchange rate. Finally, less than 24 hours later we were told by the association of Bureau de Change, BDC, operators that CBN had reversed itself and decided to begin direct sales of foreign exchange to BDCs despite the long and decisive condemnati…

Warn your Pastor,

1. Who will see vision about people's problems but will not give scriptural solution. If God reveals any problem, He must give solution. Any prophet that claims discernment of the cause of you problem but doesn't give accurate solution is using familiar spirit or is speaking presumptuously.

2. To stop giving people dry fasting as a solution to their problems. Some will quote Matt. 17:14-21, but they misunderstand what that scripture. It is the minister praying that must be the one to fast & pray. They should only "prescribe" fasting if the Holy Spirit directs in order not to worsen the person's condition.

3. The teaching about RESTITUTION of Marriage is unscriptural. Some teach that if you married more than one wife before being born again that you put away all others and stay with the first one only (but its a man-made doctrine). Acts 17:30 tells us that God has overlooked those things you did in ignorance. You are to remain the way …

Woman Withdraws Lawsuit Against Bill Cosby

- A woman who contends Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1965 withdrew a lawsuit against the comedian on Friday, a day after a federal judge in Massachusetts had blocked an effort by the entertainer’s attorneys have the suit dismissed.

Kristina Ruehli is one of more than 50 women who have accused Cosby, now 78, of sexually assaulting them, often after plying them with drugs and alcohol, in a series of attacks dating back decades. Most of these alleged cases are too old to be the subject of criminal prosecution, but Cosby now faces a series of defamation lawsuits by women who claim he smeared their names when he accused them of lying.

In a brief filing in U.S. District Court in Springfield, Massachusetts, Ruehli did not say why she was withdrawing a suit filed in 2015. Her lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the Washington Post quoted Ruehli as saying that she had accomplished her goal of drawing attention to Cosby’s alleged sexual assaults.

See Who Just Sued Chris Brown

Chris Brown is in yet another controversy for allegedly raising his hands again. According to court documents obtained by E! News,Brown's manager Michael Guirguis, also known as Mike G, filed a lawsuit against Chris for assault, battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing after he alleges the singer "brutally" attacked him in early May before embarking on his European tour.

Colorado: We Might Replace ObamaCare with state single-payer plan

Colorado could become the first state in the union to offer its citizens universal, single-payer health care if voters approve an amendment on November's ballot. Supporters hope that if Amendment 69, known as ColoradoCare, passes, other states will follow.

"The way to get here is state by state," according to T.R. Reid, spokesman for ColoradoCare and author of "The Healing of America."

"That's how we got female suffrage, child labor laws, interracial marriage, marijuana. One state does it and the other states see that it works and it spreads."

Proponents believe Colorado is the perfect testing ground for this issue because its constitution is far easier to amend than most other states. They cite the passage in 2012 of an amendment legalizing recreational marijuana despite the opposition of nearly every elected official in the state.

"People trust us to take ideas and make them work," Reid said, "and we can make this work and then th…

In his first TV interview since Reeva's death, Pistorius said he "couldn’t disagree" with those who felt he should be punished.

"At times I don’t feel like I should have the right to live for taking someone else’s life. What’s difficult is dealing with the charge of murder," he said.

But Pistorius said he did not want to "waste my life" behind bars.

"If I was afforded the opportunity of redemption I would like to help the less fortunate like I had in my past," he said. "I would like to believe that if Reeva could look down upon me that she would want me to live that life."
Pistorius made the comments during an interview with ITV, to be broadcast at 9pm on Friday. The interview – at times frank, at other points self-exculpatory, and with moments of …
