NPFL: Appeal Court Takes over Giwa Reinstatement Case

first_imgThe legal battle seeking to compel the League Management Company (LMC) to reinstate Giwa FC into the 2015/16 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) has shifted to the Court of Appeal, Jos Division which two days ago enrolled the suit.LMC’s appeal is against the interim order granted by Justice I.I. Kunda of the Plateau State High Court, Bukuru on August 12, in a case filed by Mustapha Abubakar seeking to reinstate Giwa FC into the NPFL and also reschedule all the games the club was excluded from playing following its expulsion in May. Abubakar claims to be the Chairman of Giwa FC Supporters Club and that his fundamental human rights has been violated.Giwa FC was expelled by the LMC from the NPLF in May for failure to honour and play three matches cumulatively contrary to the provisions of the NPFL 2015/16 Framework and Rules and punishable by expulsion from the League. LMC had reached the decision after a protracted process of appeals and hearings as provided for by the rules of the football governing authorities The LMC through its lawyer, Olumide Olujinmi is asking the Court of Appeal to grant a stay of execution of the lower court’s order and an application for departure from the rules of court to allow for the appeal to be heard as a matter of urgency.In one of its grounds of appeal, the LMC argued that Abubakar has not been shown to have any connection or relationship whatsoever with the LMC or the NPFL and that there was no urgency as required by law for the judge to make the interim order which is nearly three months after the expulsion of Giwa FC from the NPFL on May 22. At the resumed hearing last Thursday, Justice Kunda had sought to know if the LMC had complied with the interim order of August 12 and Olujimi in response referred to an affidavit of compliance filed by the LMC as proof of compliance. Olujimi also told the court that he has filed for a stay of proceedings at the Appeals Court.However, Barrister H.S Ardzard, the Counsel for Abubakar disagreed, claiming that there has not been full compliance since according to him, the LMC was yet to reschedule the matches involving Giwa FC. He then pleaded with the judge to give an order stopping the league until there is full compliance.The LMC however said there was no basis for stopping the league which is an industry representing the multifarious interests of 19 other clubs from states all over Nigeria with players on contract as employees, officials and other employees of the clubs, broadcast right holders, corporate sponsors and the public interest and national and international image of Nigeria.The LMC continued that rescheduling of matches cannot be done at a whim and explained that it involves several considerations and processes that will take some time.It was also the submission of the LMC that Giwa FC’s interest cannot supersede other interests and urged the plaintiff’s Counsel to seek other judicial remedies to enforce compliance with the court order if he was sure there had been none.The LMC contends that the suit before the Plateau State High Court is defective since as a fundamental human right case, Giwa FC or its owner Giwa FC Ltd is a company which cannot have fundamental human rights.The League body had also challenged the jurisdiction of the Jos High Court to grant the interim order, contending that Abubakar lacked the locus standi to file the suit on behalf of Giwa FC Ltd, since the only person that can complain about any wrong done to a company is the company itself.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Stocks slip but remain on track for another winning week

first_imgNEW YORK — Stocks slipped in Friday morning trading, as falling oil prices dragged down energy companies, but the S&P 500 remained on track to close out its third straight winning week following a brutal December.KEEPING SCORE: The S&P 500 was down 14 points, or 0.6 per cent, at 2,582, as of 10 a.m. Eastern time. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 155, or 0.6 per cent, to 23,846, and the Nasdaq composite lost 44, or 0.6 per cent, to 6,942.CRUDE CALL: Energy stocks in the S&P 500 fell 1 per cent for the largest loss among the 11 sectors that make up the index. Exxon Mobil, Chevron and ConocoPhillips all dropped more than 1 per cent.Benchmark U.S. crude oil fell 81 cents, or 1.5 per cent, to $51.75 per barrel and on pace to break a long winning streak. Oil has climbed for nine straight days, as it recovered a portion of sharp losses from prior months when worries flared about weakening demand and too much supply.Brent crude, the international standard, sank $1.07 to $60.61. If it remains down, it would be the first drop for oil in two weeks.2019 RELIEF: The S&P 500 has been clawing back gains since running to the edge of what traders call a “bear market,” when it dropped 19.8 per cent between setting a record in September and a low on Christmas Eve. Stocks have climbed on soothing words from the Federal Reserve about the future path of interest rates, plus hopes that the U.S.-China trade dispute may ease. That’s helped to at least paper over worries about slowing growth for corporate earnings and the possibility of a looming recession.Even with Friday’s weak opening, the S&P 500 is on pace for a 1.9 per cent gain this week. It would be the third consecutive winning week for the index, its longest since August. Not only that, the last three weeks of gains have all been of at least 1.8 per cent. If that holds, it would be the longest such streak since 2001.US-CHINA TALKS: Talks between American and Chinese negotiators may have ended without significant breakthroughs, but traders are choosing to focus on the positives. The fact that talks lasted a day longer than planned, conciliatory statements from both sides and the possibility of higher-level talks in the near future are driving gains in Europe and Asia. In December, U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed to a 90-day tariffs cease-fire, for negotiators to soothe tensions that have unsettled trade.MARKETS ABROAD: In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225 index jumped 1 per cent, the Kospi in South Korea rose 0.6 per cent and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong gained 0.5 per cent. In Europe, France’s CAC 40 dropped 0.6 per cent, and Germany’s DAX lost 0.6 per cent. The FTSE 100 in London fell 0.4 per cent.INTEREST RATES: The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.68 per cent from 2.73 per cent late Thursday.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Chess World Rattled As Someone Nearly Wins Game

5k2/8/5pKn/5PbP/2B5/8/8/8 b – – 0 0 You must activate JavaScript to enhance chess diagram visualization.

Magnus Carlsen of Norway, the world’s No. 1 chess player, fended off a vicious siege at the hands of U.S. grandmaster Fabiano Caruana, the world No. 2, in London Friday. It was the sixth frame of the World Chess Championship, and one that for hours appeared likely to give the American a critical lead. But Carlsen escaped, and the match remains level, 3-3. Each of the six games so far have been a draw.“It’s a miracle save,” said Robert Hess, an American grandmaster commentating on the match for Chess.com.To catch you up: Carlsen is seeking his fourth world title while his challenger Caruana is trying for the first American world championship since Bobby Fischer in 1972. Their horns are locked in the middle of a best-of-12-game match for the game’s most important title.The two began Friday’s Game 6 in one of Caruana’s favorite openings: the Petroff. (Specific lines of this opening were featured in the deleted video that scandalized the match days ago.) Game 6’s first three moves appear in 12,289 other games in the ChessBase database. In 11,802 — or 96 percent — of those, white moves its knight to f3 on its fourth move. In 17 of those — or 0.1 percent — white moves its knight to d3.Carlsen moved his knight to d3. We’ll keep the draw-filled chart below updated throughout the match. And perhaps we’ll be able to add a decisive result to it at some point. Or perhaps not. And that could be exciting, too.1While the chart below shows a big advantage for Caruana throughout most of the end of Friday’s game, the computer engine is not always perfectly reliable when it comes to numerically assessing complex, fortressed-based endgames. 87654321abcdefgh A dozen moves later, Caruana had captured three of Carlsen’s pawns, including those aspiring to become queens, and still had one of his own. That left him in a victorious position — if only he could see it. On the 68th move, a supercomputer analyzing the game found a guaranteed checkmate a distant 30 moves down the road — down a lengthy bridle path, say. Chess players are second only to maybe biological taxonomists in their proclivity to elaborately name things, and sure enough even this rare position has its own proper name: the Karklins-Martinovsky Variation. But neither player was troubled by Karklins-Martinovsky, they said after the game. Its theory is well known to these elite players.And so they played on. The powerful queens came off the board by move 8, but this loss took no edge off the fight. For a while, the game looked less like a battle and more like a dressage competition, as 66 percent or more of each player’s first 12 moves were knight moves.Many moves later, as the game cantered through its middlegame, winning chances emerged and swelled for Caruana’s black pieces, according to both the computer engine and human grandmaster commentators. (Surprisingly, black, which is usually at a disadvantage, has often had an advantage over white in this match.) While there was no single blunder for Carlsen, there was an accumulation of … what to call them? “Mistakes” seems too serious. “Slip-ups” make them sound like pratfalls. Let’s go with “inaccuracies.” Carlen admitted after the game that he’d made a number of imperfect moves. By move 34, knights and bishops were the only firepower left on the board, and they threatened salvo after salvo in a crucial struggle over the pawns.By the 47th move, Carlsen was down a knight but up three pawns, which gave him a few slim hopes. Two had open routes to the end of the board, where they could become queens. Much delicate, asymmetrical and impossibly complex maneuvering commenced, as Caruana tried to prevent the pawns’ promotion. 87654321abcdefgh Caruana is an unbelievably strong player — though not that strong. As play continued, the silicon’s guarantee quickly went away. If only Carlsen could eliminate the pawns, he’d survive: a bishop and a knight versus a bishop is a theoretically guaranteed draw.Finally, through many feats, Carlsen was able to spirit away his king to a fortress on black’s side of the board. 87654321abcdefgh read more
