Dangote Splashes N50m on Super Falcons as Fr Mbaka Sets Social Media on Fire With 'Holy' Extortion

The Super Falcons made Nigeria proud when they braved all odds to win the 2018 African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) which held in Ghana. Success indeed has many friends and soon enough, good things started coming after them. First was the NFF gifting each player $10,000, and then Abdul Samad Rabiu, Chairman of BUA group gifting $68,000 to the entire team.

But the biggest splash was made by Multi-Billionaire, Aliko Dangote who gave the Nigeria women’s national football team $137,000 which translates to a whooping amount of 50 Million Naira.

The Super Falcons edged the resilient Banyana Banyana of South Africa 4-3 on penalties after a scoreless 120 minutes in the final. They thus lifted the top African women football diadem for the third successive time and ninth time overall. Congrats to them.

Fr Mbaka vs Peter Obi Turns Social Media Upside Down

Fiery Catholic priest Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka came under heavy attack after he was caught on video trying to extort former governor of Anambra state and PDP Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Fr. Mbaka went on to threaten Peter Obi’s political ambitions with doom, curiously withholding Obi’s blessing saying he would only release it after Obi had dropped something for the church’s bazaar.

“My brother and Governor, stand before all of us and tell what you want to do for God,” Fr Mbaka was seen telling Obi in the video.

When the former governor didn’t budge, Fr Mbaka (in)famously shouted; God hates stinginess!

Some people felt that Peter Obi stood his ground which is more reason he should be voted for.

Here are some:
