Tremor in Abuja

Residents of Mpape and its environs witnessed tremor in Abuja on Thursday the 8th of September 2018. This was confirmed by The Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on Friday the 7th of September 2018.

Earth tremor is an involuntary quivering movement. It can also be said to be a slight earthquake. This is a natural phenomenon that is mostly facilitated by indiscriminate and uncontrolled mining of mineral resources, blasting of rocks amongst other human activities.

The people of Abuja just yesterday experienced this scary natural phenomenon. Since then many people have come out to condemn the unauthorized blasting of rocks and unprofessional mining of natural mineral in the FCT and other states.

The Senate President, Dr. Saraki took to his twitter handle to confirm the incident and said, “We have all been feeling the earth tremors in Abuja and surrounding areas over the last 48 hours. I know that many people are scared, but please, remain calm and vigilant.”

Senate president Saraki also said that “At this time, it is important that @NEMANigeria, FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and all emergency services be on high alert to prevent the loss of lives and property.

“The Chairman of the Senate Committee on FCT, Senator Dino Melaye, has already briefed the FCT Minister on this issue.

The Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has come out to assure Nigerians especially those residing in the affected area that there is no likelihood of a full-blown earthquake in the FCT and other parts of the country.

After the confirmation of the news on tremor in Abuja, authorities have called on all citizens to calm down and resist spreading false news about an impending earthquake. Scientist and FEMA have both confirmed that there is no impending earthquake in Abuja and the rest of the country as a whole.

Scientist has warned against the continuous explosion of rocks and dangerous mining activities all over the country. This they say will stop the resurgence of tremor in Abuja and the country at large.

Anthony Joshua wins in seventh round

After a slow start in the opening rounds, Anthony Joshua nicknamed “AJ” found his footing in the fourth round. He dished out a dirty blow to his opponent Povetkin upper left eye and set the crowd screaming.

Showing no remorse, Joshua went on to deliver two more devastating blows in the seventh round which left Povetkin on the deck, dizzy, and quite unsure of where he was.

The 28-year-old triumphed through a seventh-round knockout after he sent his Russian opponent crashing to the canvas to stretch his winning streak to a 22 unbeaten win in his professional career.

 

The fight was held in front of a massive crowd of 70,000 people.

 

Immediately after he was declared the winner, Anthony Joshua went on to celebrate by wearing his championship belt on his thick muscular arms. See the picture below.

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua holds three of the four major world championships in Boxing. He currently holds the:

  • IBF(International Boxing Federation) title since 2016,
  • WBA (Super)title since 2017,
  • WBO title since March 2018,
  • He has also held the IBO title since 2017.

Before today the 39 years old Alexander Povetkin had never tasted defeat in his amazing professional career, but I guess he will take solace in the fact that he lost to the best.

The Barcelona power house Lionel Messi has become the most decorated player in Barcelona’s history. This historic award was conferred on him yesterday after he led his team to win the Spanish Super cup over Sevilla. The Argentine skipper who failed to progress from the group stage in the just concluded Russia 2018 World Cup has yet again proved that he remains a force to reckoned with.

The match started with Sevilla clinching a single goal lead in the first half before Pique’s leveler just before the break. Barcelona went on to take the lead with an amazing goal from Ousmane Dembele to seal up their victory.

The significance of yesterday’s win is that Messi is now the sole holder of the award of the Most Decorated Player in Barcelona’s History; an award he previously shared with Iniesta. Mess now has 33 trophies to his name which moves him a step away from his former co-awardee Iniesta whom they held the most decorated player award together with a tie of 32 trophies. The Spanish golden boy is still breaking records even as the season begins on a very positive note.
