    Richarlison’s late double earns Tottenham win over Marseille

    Richarlison’s first goals for Tottenham Hotspur helped them mark their return to the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Olympique de Marseille in Group D on Wednesday.

    The Brazilian forward who signed from Everton in the summer, struck twice in five minutes late on to secure three points that had not looked likely for the hosts.

    Richarlison rose to head home Ivan Perisic’s pinpoint cross in the 76th minute and scored an almost identical goal from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s cross to deflate Marseille.

    Richarlison’s brace glossed over a largely mediocre display by Tottenham who were second best against a lively Marseille.

    That was until the French side had Chancel Mbemba sent off three minutes into the second half for a foul on Son Heung-min.

    Tottenham, who missed out on the Champions league for the past two seasons, did not register a shot on target in a lacklustre first half.

    But Richarlison eventually ensured a perfect start for Antonio Conte’s team.

    They share top spot in the group with Sporting Lisbon who beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0. Marseille fans vented their frustration at the final whistle with ugly scenes as they clashed with stewards and police.

    Richarlison was denied his first Tottenham goal when he had an effort disallowed against Fulham at the weekend.

    But he did not have to wait much longer to open his account as he displayed the cutting edge that Tottenham’s attack had been lacking throughout the Group D opener.

    Marseille, like Tottenham, have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the season and were comfortable during the first half.

    Tottenham could not build any attacking momentum and the visitors looked sharper all over the pitch.

    Former Arsenal player Matteo Guendouzi controlled the midfield and forced Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris into a low save in first-half stoppage time.

    Marseille suffered a blow in the 48th minute though when Son was played through on goal and was crudely taken down by Mbemba who was shown a red card by Slovenian referee Slavko Vincic.

    Even then Tottenham struggled to make much impression and Marseille looked like taking home a point.

    That was until Perisic delivered a superb right-footed cross from the left and Richarlison thumped a header past Pau Lopez.

    Marseille did not learn their lesson and the Brazilian then found space in the area again to glance Hojbjerg’s delivery into the net off the post in the 81st minute.

    Marseille went close to pulling a goal back when Ben Davies blocked an effort by Cengiz Under but the French side returned home wondering what might have been.

    “We’re frustrated.

    At 11 versus 11 we matched them, and perhaps were even dominating,” Marseille captain Valentin Rongier said.

    “We have lots of regrets, because even with 10 men we could have gotten a result.

    Lewandowski bags hat-trick in FC Barcelona’s Champions League bow

    Robert Lewandowski struck a hat-trick in his first Champions League game for FC Barcelona to power the Catalans to an emphatic 5-1 home win over Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday.

    Midfielder Franck Kessie put FC Barcelona in front in the 13th minute and Lewandowski extended their lead with a right-footed finish into the bottom corner in the 37th minute.

    The Poland striker produced a diving header from an Ousmane Dembele cross to score again in first-half stoppage time.

    He restored Barcelona’s two-goal cushion after Jan Sykora’s header had pulled the Czech champions back into contention.

    Lewandowski completed his treble midway through the second period, meeting a layoff from Ferran Torres and curling the ball inside the far post with one touch.

    Torres completed a hugely satisfying evening for Xavi Hernandez’s side by scoring the fifth goal to put FC Barcelona top of Group C.

    They head to Lewandowski’s former club Bayern Munich next on Sept. 13, when Plzen host Inter Milan.

    Sensitisation, key to winning war against human trafficking –Refugees Commission

    Sensitisation of Nigerians, particularly mothers, has been identified as key to winning the war against human trafficking, child labour and domestic servitude.

    Mrs Catherine Udida, Director, Migrant Affairs, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, made the observation on Wednesday in Abuja.

    at a symposium against human trafficking in the Gulf of Guinea The symposium was organised by Network of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) Against Child Trafficking, Abuse and Labour (NACTAL), North Central Zone, with the theme: “Combatting Human Trafficking, Harnessing Resources among Stakeholders.

    ” Udida said that to win the war against human trafficking, child labour and domestic servitude, women especially mothers, must be sensitised to ensure that they  never  allowed their children to be trafficked.

    She said that trafficking occurred through the desire to have a better life.

    Udida said that Nigerians must guide against this, be content with wherever they found themselves and with whatever that came their way.

    “Sensitisation is key.

    People should talk to their friends and neighbours, especially places where we are endemic, we should try as much as possible to sensitise mothers and other women folks.

    “We must sensitise them to ensure that nothing should make them allow their children to be trafficked in their desire to have a better life.

    “Our advice to Nigerians is that every human being is important.

    A child must be protected.

    A woman must be protected.

    A man must be protected and we, as a country, must protect ourselves,’’ she said.

    Mr Benjamin Eneanya, the Project Manager, Expertise France, said that insecurity in the country, occasioned by banditry, kidnapping and terrorism, had caused displacement of many Nigerians, thereby fuelling human trafficking.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Expertise France is a french government development agency implementing the European Union fund project to support the fight against human trafficking in the states of Gulf of Guinea.

    NAN reports that the project seeks to contribute to counter trafficking efforts in six countries in the Gulf of Guinea which are Nigeria, Benin Republic, Togo, Ghana, Cote d’Ivorie and Guinea, through providing support to government and CSOs. Eneanya said that the problem of human trafficking was enormous as many Nigerians were victims of this crime, either internally or to foreign countries where they under gone  all forms of exploitations in most despicable conditions known to mankind.

    According to him, the physical and psychological damage to victims is so immense that it requires thorough rehabilitation and empowerment process, as well as reintegration of such a person into the society.

    Eneanya called on Nigerians to caution against this menace, as well as civil societies to double up their campaign, in order for the war to be won totally.

    Mrs Imaobong Ladipo-Sanusi, NACTAL North Central Coordinator, said the symposium was  important as it aimed to bring all stakeholders together to harness resources and discuss the way forward to combatting the crime.

    She listed stakeholders like National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), NCFRMI, NACTAL and Women Trafficking and Child Labour Eradication Foundation (WOTCLEF).

    “Part of the aim is to think of what to do and carry gatekeepers like traditional rulers, religious leaders, media who are all grassroot people, as well as Ministry, Department and Agency (MDA) along in the fight,’’ she said.

    Kebbi plans to return 750,000 out-of-school children to classroom – KBSUBEB

    Prof. Suleiman Khalid, Chairman, Kebbi State Universal Basic Education Board (KBSUBEB), said that the board had stepped-up efforts to return 750,000 out-of-school children to classroom across the state.

    Khalid announced the plan of the board when a delegation on Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) Implementation Support Team from Abuja paid a courtesy visit on Gov. Atiku Bagudu in Government House, Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday.

    The chairman said 86,000 out-of-school children were returned to school in 2021 across the state, adding that in 2022, it was planned that 750,000 of such children would be returned to school.

    “These, among others, are some of the incredible achievements we have recorded sequel to the sustained support of Gov. Abubakar Atiku Bagudu,”  he said.

    Receiving the delegation, Gov. Bagudu restated his commitment to adequately fund education at all levels in the state, while appreciating the successes recorded in returning out-of-school children to classes in the state under the project.

    While assuring of the readiness of his administration to logically and judiciously deploy resources to achieve better results, Bagudu observed that the myriad of interventions by the federal and Kebbi state governments had positively opened the fortunes of education in the state.

    “These interventions had really helped to arrest the hitherto high level of decay in the educational institutions in the state.

    Let me acknowledge that BESDA had also enabled the state to do what it should have done earlier, this is a wake up call.

    “I am delighted that SUBEB in the state has been doing very well, I want to assure that more will be done.

    “Kebbi is successfully implementing many intervention projects with the Federal Government, World Bank and other agencies.

    “Education planning depends on statistics, I want to direct those in charge to be mindful of the sanctity of data,” Bagudu directed.

    The Team Leader, Dr Bala Zakari who is also the Deputy Executive Secretary, Technical, UBEC Abuja, said BESDA was a result-oriented project under the Federal Ministry of Education expected to end next month.

    He explained that it was a four-year programme that had received tremendous support from Kebbi State Government.

    Zakari also lauded the state for the support and cooperation it gave during the just concluded  National Personnel Audit, adding that BESDA was targeting out-of-school children,  to get them back to school.

    The National Implementation Adviser, BESDA, Dr Dabo Adamu, stated that Kebbi remained one of the best BESDA states in the country, assuring that it was why the state government earned $5 miliion after the first NBS verification.

    “The state will earn more during the forthcoming second leg of the exercise.

    I, therefore, want to request His Excellency to improve financial support to Kebbi SUBEB to achieve optimum result,” he advised.

    Domestic violence: Lagos charges men on chores

    The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) on Wednesday urged the male gender to assist in house chores, for the good of the family.

    The Executive Secretary, DSVA, Mrs Lola Vivour-Adeniyi, gave the advice at Katangowa Market, during an advocacy against Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), tagged: ”Men Wey Sabi”.

    ”Some women have died because they did not cook for their spouses, some women are being victimised because it appears they are not meeting up with the house chores.

    ”Today we are engaging the men; the men will be cooking; men will be cleaning; men will be changing diapers; basically roles that have been specifically ascribed as feminine roles.

    ”What we are saying is that it doesn’t make you less a man if you are involved in house chores for the family.

    “What we are saying is that if you are a ”man wey sabi”, you should be involved because it is in partnership, ‘marriage is partnership’,” Vivour-Adeniyi said.

    She said that the campaign followed the resolve by the state government to rid Lagos of SGBV crimes in its entirety, through enlightenment campaigns and continuous sensitisation plan that cut across different strata of the society.

    According to her, it is expedient to change the social construct by breaking gender stereotypes that further heighten directly or indirectly the crime of sexual and gender based violence.

    She said that in the last one year – from September 2021 to July 2022 – there was a record of 4,860 cases of SGBV, with a notice of slight decrease in May and June. The Babaloja General, Alhaja Abiodun kosoko and Iyaloja General, Mrs Funmilayo Alabi George of Agbado Okeodo LCDA expressed gratitude to the state government for bringing the initiative of the Market Fiesta.

    Kosoko said that the problem associated with SGBV was that some people don’t want the issue to be exposed, if it happens.

    At the Katangowa market campaign, selected male adults performed on-the-spot chores socially ascribed to women, such as diaper changing and cooking.

    Winners and other participants went home with various gifts and consolation prizes.
