UEFA Champions League returns this midweek with an enticing prospect of witnessing two of Europe’s biggest heavyweights going head-to-head as French giants Paris Saint-Germain take on English champions Manchester City.
The two teams reignite their fierce rivalry after colliding in last season’s semi-finals when Pep Guardiola’s troops won both games to crush the Les Parisiens’ European dream once more.
Both sides will be eager to get their hands on the coveted Champions League trophy since they have yet to add European silverware to their illustrious domestic cabinet despite all their riches.
The Citizens came close last term but stumbled in the final against Chelsea, while PSG also lost the final to Bayern Munich in the 2019-20 season.
PSG finally put the dream trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar on the field together for the first time in their Champions League opening game against Club Brugge.
Although the trio had their moments and flashes of brilliance, the team as a whole was uninspiring and settled for a 1-1 stalemate to begin their European campaign.
PSG have just brushed off the competition in Ligue 1 so far and maintaining their unblemished record with a 2-0 victory against Montpellier on the weekend.
Manchester City, meanwhile, are brimming with confidence and are coming on the back of a 1-0 win over title rivals Chelsea on Saturday, with Gabriel Jesus’ diverted effort proving to be the ultimate decider.
Despite an underwhelming start to their campaign, the Citizens are well back on track to contend on all frontiers and started their Champions League campaign in a dominating fashion, thrashing RB Leipzig 6-3 at Etihad.

Tinubu Reading January Newspaper In October, This Photo Is A Disappointment – Omokri
Nigerian socio-political activist, Reno Omokri, has taken to the microblogging platform, Twitter, to mock the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congres (APC), Bola Tinubu, over a viral photo showing him reading a January 2022 newspaper in October 2022.
Recall that Tinubu had posted a photo of himself earlier on the bird app reading a newspaper.
Tinubu’s photo which is perceived to be an attempt by the presidential hopeful to dispel rumours about his health status has since generated a barrage of reactions on social media.
Joining the host of others in making a mockery of the presidential candidate, Omokri on Thursday afternoon wrote: “This story was published on January 23, 2022. First an old video of your riding an exercise bike. Now, an old photo of your reading ab outdated newspaper? Bola, you should definitely fire the propagandist handling your Twitter account.”

2023: No State Or Community Will Be Left Behind If I’m Elected President, Peter Obi Assures Nigerians
Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has promised that no state or community will be left behind in moving Nigeria forward.
He noted that if elected, his administration will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of security and governance. “We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community,” he said.
Peter Obi disclosed this in his speech at Harvard University.

Obi said he will ensure that in moving Nigeria forward, no state or community will be left behind. Pursuant to its statutory responsibility to protect, our government will promote equity in power and resource sharing.
“The federating units will enjoy discernible autonomy. Resources will also be shared equitably. A higher derivation paid to oil or solid minerals-producing states will not be tantamount to other states not receiving federal allocations that should keep them viable.
“We will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of the security sector and governance. We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community.
“We will build a compact, robust and ready mobile police force with rapid response deployment capabilities; and legislate the establishment of state police based on community policing. We will raise the population-to-police officer ratio to a higher level” he added.
On Nigeria’s role in Africa and insecurity, he added that we must think seriously about a leadership that is imbued with competence, capacity, credibility, and commitment. Accordingly, we will pursue intangible assets of good governance, rule of law, and the security of lives and properties.
He added his administration will ensure that they have these assets in place and stress asset optimization.
“We will strike a strategic balance that allows us to promote and protect national interest while meeting our ECOWAS obligations.
“We will rebuild Nigeria’s military power, promote economic growth, and enhance its technological prowess with a view to improving Nigeria’s diplomatic influence in sub-regional, regional and global affairs.
He added that restoring leadership will require that we reassert proactively, Nigeria’s leadership role in African affairs through constructive engagement, peacekeeping duties, and using existing sub-regional and regional forums as well as bilateral platforms for dialogue on current and emerging challenges. We will continue to enhance our sphere of influence via peacekeeping, and trade and investment initiatives.
