--Stoke City forward calls Keshi
By Ephraim Nwosu:

Osaze Odemwingie has made good his promise to extend an olive branch to coach Stephen Keshi. The Eagles coach and Odemwingie were involved in a highly publicised row during which the former West Bromwich Albion striker took to Twitter to blast the Eagles gaffer after he was sensationally left out of the 2013 African Cup of Nations preparation in Portugal.

Keshi has been under pressure to recall the erstwhile Bendel Insurance FC of Benin player and he has hinted that Odemwingie could still make his 23-man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil on the condition that he assures him of his readiness to play for Nigeria.

Odemwingie’s aide, Austin Uabor, has however confirmed to Complete Sports from London during an exclusive telephone chat that the duo have settled their differences.

“Yes,Osaze has finally put a call across to Keshi. He was happy to receive his call and the outcome was fruitful. It was a private discussion, more like a father and son conversation hence we don't want to make it a media affair again. All I can tell you is that Osaze is ready to play for his fatherland again.He regrets missing the last Nations Cup so he cannot wait to rejoin the team for the World Cup if they invite him. I am optimistic that he would be recalled by Keshi very soon.’’

As a result of this development, there are feelers that Odemwingie might be listed by Keshi for the May 28 international friendly against Scotland at Fulham’s Craven Cottage. The 32-year-old last featured for Nigeria in a 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Rwanda in 2012. - COMPLETE SPORTS

EDE N'ERHENA VBE EDO

"

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
