ISSA Hayatou’s ouster from the position of CAF (Confederation of African Football) president in March 2017 is by far the best development that occurred on the continent this year. At age 70, Hayatou had been president of the African football governing body for 29 years.
How this happened is what must inspire all youth for Africa to realise the demographic dividend in the near future.

STARTING a student society can be a great way to meet new people, have some fun and boost your CV. However, you can’t start one just like that. You’ve got to go through the right motions and tick the right boxes first.
Here’s our guide to starting a student society. We hope it helps!
STEP ONE: GET AN IDEA…
Ok, this may sound a bit obvious, but it’s essential that your society is fresh, original and unique. You can’t just start another football society if one already exists. …
IMAGINE being born and growing up in a war zone.
You never have a permanent place of residence, just always moving from place to place in a bid to escape death and survive. You never understand why people are getting killed and more so, why your parents and thousands of other families are suffering in the bushes.
For many years of your childhood you are not learning but just watching hundreds of children and adults, including your mom, die due to lack of medicine, food and clean water.
