[UPDATE] Keshi just couldn't bear the pain...

In December 2015, former Nigeria Head Coach Stephen Keshi lost his wife of 35 years after a prolonged battle with cancer, and this morning news of his death was confirmed by his family, with tributes pouring in from media, sports and entertainment personalities. His brother, Ado says the Delta state born coach was destined to die and nothing would have stopped his death. 

"It is true, my brother has passed on. He has gone to meet his wife," said Emma Ado. It's very painful, but it is what God has destined. Not even 10 million soldiers would have stopped it. But we give glory to God." 

Keshi never recovered from the death of Kate; they were inseparable. He has gone to meet Kate. Since the wife died Keshi has kept on mourning and has been in sorrow. All these time Keshi has been acting, giving the impression that he was fine and man enough to bear the sorrow but the truth actually is that he was down and in pain over the death of his wife.

From companionship to cooking and other domestic matters nobody could be like his wife to him; they were irreplaceable. The man just went to join her", he added.

In statement released by Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki, , Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President has reacted to the loss of Nigeria's most iconic sports personalities, former Super Eagles captain and coach, Stephen Keshi, who died after a Cardiac arrest in the early hours of today Wednesday June 8th.  The statement reads,

The sad occurrence was both painful and unfortunate coming at a time the nation is in dire need of wisdom and rich experience of sports professionals like the late international star to stabilize its soccer architecture. Keshi was an excellent star. His soccer artistry and leadership skills remain unparalleled. His days, while donning the national colours and his stint as a National Coach of the Super Eagles could rightly be regarded as "Nigeria's golden moments" in both national, continental and world soccer.

Adieu Big Boss!

On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…
