    Late goals help 3SC as Rangers falter in continental competition ticket chase

    Two late goals by Moses Omoduemuke ensured visiting Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan drew 2-2 with Rangers International of Enugu on Saturday in Awka.

    The home draw meant the hosts failed to gain valuable ground on their 20212022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) rivals in the race for the competition’s third position.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Omoduemuke’s 73rd and 88th minutes goals cancelled out strikes by Shedrack Asiegbu and Chidiebere in the 46th and 55th minutes respectively.

    The result meant Rangers stayed fourth on the log behind Remo Stars Football Club of Ikenne in third place, with each of them on 53 points.

    This may mean that the 1977 African Cup Winners Cup champions may not be having a return next season to the competition now known as the CAF Confederation Cup.

    Remo Stars are likely to build a gap when they host fifth-placed Enyimba International of Aba on Sunday, while Enyimba can even leapfrog Rangers if they win in Ikenne.

    Sixth-placed Kwara United who host Nasarawa United of Lafia on Sunday in Ilorin can do same if they win.

    Eighth-placed Akwa United of Uyo can move up if they beat hosts Wikki Tourists  on Sunday too.

    Seventh-placed Sunshine Stars of Akure seem to be out of the reckoning for now, after a 0-1 loss to hosts Heartland Football Club of Owerri who are in the 18th place.

    Abia Warriors of Umuahia did their campaign a lot of good with a 3-2 win over Gombe United, while Dakkada FC beat visiting Katsina FC 2-0 in Uyo.

    Other Match Day 36 fixtures slated for Sunday will see title winners Rivers United of Port Harcourt hosting Kano Pillars, while MFM FC of Lagos will host Niger Tornadoes of Minna.

    Second-placed Plateau United of Jos should have their hands full as they host relegation-threatened Lobi Stars of Makurdi.

    But knowing a win will cement their position and the 20222023 CAF Champions League ticket, there may be no surprises.

    Kwara Gov’s wife urges collaboration, support in fighting illicit drugs

    The wife of Kwara governor and Founder, Ajike People Support Centre, Amb. Olufolake AbdulRazaq, has called for more collaboration among stakeholders in combating trade and consumption of illicit drugs in the country.

    She specifically urged relevant individuals, religious groups and non-governmental organisations to join hands in fighting the menace of illicit drugs in the society.

    Mrs Abdulrazaq made the call while receiving report from the state Drug Control Committee led by its Chairperson, Mrs Barakat Olanrewaju, in Ilorin on Saturday.

    The governor’s wife enjoined the Ministries of Women Affairs and Social Development to intensify efforts in checking and controlling illegal trade of drugs and its abuse especially in market places and among women and girls.

    According to her, in 2018 Kwara was reported as the state with the highest rate in prevalence of drug abuse in the North Central, saying that the narrative has changed as the percentage had reduced.

    She commended the committee for making the state proud while tasking them to do more to make the state drug free.

    Earlier, the Chairperson of the committee disclosed that they had conducted sensitisation programmes and mobilised resources for drug control activities to about 40 schools and the Correctional Service in the state, noting that the rate of drug abuse among students is alarming.

    She said that the committee was working closely with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and had also compiled all activities in response to drugs awareness and sensitisation in the state to report them to the agency’s headquarters in Abuja.
