1989 or where it all started!! When I think of the last 20 years of my professional career, looking at this picture can’t make me more proud of what I’ve achieved as a player but most importantly how this journey as shaped me as a man. If anyone tells you your dreams are too big, just say thank you and work harder and smarter to turn them into reality. #alwaysbelieve I wanna thank all the players, managers, teams and fans that I have met and made this journey one of a kind!!! Also a huuuuge thank you and love to my family ♥️, my Personal Team for supporting me all my career during all the ups and downs no matter what. Looking forward to the next Chapter and hoping God will Bless me as much as he did for my football career 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 DD11 1989 Là où tout à commencé !! Quand je pense aux 20 dernières années de ma carrière professionnelle, regarder cette photo de ma première licence, ne peut que me rendre plus fier de ce que j’ai accompli en tant que joueur mais plus important encore, comment cette aventure à fait de moi l’homme que je suis aujourd’hui. Si quelqu’un vous dit un jour que vos rêves sont trop grands, acquiescez et travaillez plus dur plus intelligemment pour les rendre réalité!!!! J’aimerai remercier tous les joueurs, coachs, équipes, et supporters, que j’ai rencontré et ont fait de cette carrière un moment très spécial.

Social media has feedback from Goodluck Jonathan’s My Transition Hours
Former Nigerian president, Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, launched his book ‘My Transition Hours’ detailing his experience as Nigerian president, the circumstances surrounding the 2015 election that he lost, the role of the then American president, Barrack Obama in the election, his Boko Haram travails and more.
He wrote, “The tactical attacks by the Obama administration were many. They refused to provide any real military backing or equipment to aid the rescue of the Chibok girls, citing the Leahy Law which they claimed prevented them from supporting any military that was engaged in human rights abuses, but this law did not stop them from assisting the armed forces of Nigeria’s neighbours who had been accused of serious human rights violations”
See the reactions:
GEJ doesn’t believe in taking responsibility for failures. He refuses to believe Nigerians were disaffected with his govt and its farrago of shortcomings. It’s this person fault, it’s that person’s fault. Lol.

GEJ can write 30 books if he likes. Nothing will change the fact that he was a parochial, irredeemably corrupt, openly clanish, unbelievably weak & desperate president who now claims he was a hero for conceding an election he lost.He is not a humble man.He is meek.Big difference.

I am glancing through the book, “My Transition Hours” by former President @GEJonathan.I am sorry to say that it is an ill-advised book.He takes no responsibility for the failures of his admin.
He lied about things that were known to Nigerians & the international community .

“My Command”, “My Watch” “My Transition Hours” by “My Ex-Rulers” are not on “My Reading List” not because they are written by “My Politicians” but because in this “My Country”, I would rather read proper fiction so I can make good use of “My Money” and “My Time” in “My House”.

Everyone is talking about these five friends who have become senators
Five longtime friends, bridesmaids at each other’s weddings, Democratic candidates, won all their state’s Senate seats in Colorado, United States.
One of them told People magazine, “We hoped we were all going to win, but I don’t think anyone predicted the margin that we would win by.”
According to the magazine, the women who call themselves “The Fab Five” helped flip the state Senate to a Democratic majority for the first time in five years.
Now that’s what we call bestie goals!
