The game of football requires a lot of concentration, speed, accuracy, and precision. And all these skills are necessary to excel in a seemingly tough subject like Mathematics.

“I love football and I play football a lot since I discovered that there seems to be a connection between the game and Mathematics. You have to be smart, sharp, fast and intelligent to play football and excel in mathematics. It works for me,” Akinfoluhan explained.

2019 Polls: Atiku To Launch ‘Policy Document’ On Monday
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, says he will launch his policy document on Monday.
He disclosed this on Saturday in a statement from his campaign organization.
The launching, according to the statement, will kick-start Atiku’s campaign for president in the 2019 election through an address to Nigerians on his Facebook handle.
It said, “In his address, the PDP presidential candidate will present his vision for Nigeria and his action plan to achieve it as encapsulated in his policy document. The document will promptly be uploaded on his website for all Nigerians to access at no cost.”
The statement explained that Atiku’s decision to kick-start his presidential campaign with the launch of his policy document was to reiterate his commitment to running an issue-based campaign.
It added that the intention was to take their policy directly to Nigerians and to register Atiku’s belief that it would take the collective efforts of every Nigerian to rebuild the country.
“That is why we want Nigerians to access the policy directly and ultimately take ownership of it,” it said, adding, “Our campaign offers a simple message: United, the people of Nigeria can begin anew, creating a prosperous and secure future and a better life for every Nigerian.”
The statement read further, “Our policy document focuses on creating jobs, ensuring security, growing business, developing power and water infrastructure, agriculture and education and how we will empower women.

Strike Continues As ASUU, FG Meeting Ends In Deadlock
The meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities on Thursday ended in a deadlock.
The meeting, held at the Ministry of Labour and Employment office in Abuja over the universities lecturers’ strike since November 5, lasted for about six hours.
It had to be adjourned till next week when there was no headway.
The ASUU delegation to the meeting was led by its National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, while the government side had the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono; and the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.
Ngige, before the meeting, went into a closed-door session, told newsmen that “talks with the academic union are coming a bit late because we have been having negotiations on the new minimum wage.
“The government appeals to ASUU to put the interest of the students first because they are at the receiving end of the consideration.”
But Ogunyemi, after the meeting, which lasted from 3 pm to 9 pm, said the union had put forward its demands and the meeting had been adjourned till next week.
He said: “No date has been fixed for next week but we will communicate the date to you tomorrow (Friday).
“The union was forced to go on strike because our plea for the implementation of the 2017 Memorandum of Action fell on deaf ears.
“Our meeting with the Minister of Education (Adamu Adamu) in May and September 2018 to remind him of the Federal Government’s promises to implement the agreement yielded no result.”
