Life as an Immigrant Before Stardom: Didier Drogba to Release Autobiography 'Commitment'

One of Africa's most celebrated footballer, Didier Drogba is set to release his autobiography in November.
Front cover of Didier Drogba's Authobiography
One of the most successful African footballers in history, and without doubt one of the greatest players of the Premier League era, Didier Drogba has detailed in a book an account of his life before stardom.
 The book he says, promises an interesting and honest account of his heartbreaking separation from his homeland at the age of five, his unsettled formative years moving around France as an immigrant before his first breaks at Mans and Guincamp.
 It also reveals a precocious talent which came through in a stunning season at Marseillles and finally a £24m move to Chelsea.
Consultant Editor at Hodder & Stoughton, Roddy Bloomfield, has acquired World Rights for Didier Drogba’s autobiography from The Sports PR Company and David Luxton Associates, to be published in October 2015. The book is titled 'Commitment'.
Roddy Bloomfield said: "Apart from Didier Drogba’s long and spectacular football career he has a most impressive record of achievements as someone who cares passionately about the world’s underprivileged. Hodder are thrilled to be publishing his unusually gripping and inspirational story."
 Read all the details about the book on its official page which you can pre-order on Amazon.com

Buhari to Provide One Meal a Day for Primary School Pupils - VP Osinbajo Reveals

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice-President of Nigeria, revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari plans to give primary school children free meals.
At the 45th Annual Accountants Conference in Abuja on Tuesday 1st September 2015, Vice President, Yemi Osinbanjo, revealed to the general public that President Muhammadu Buhari plans to give primary school children free meals.

The free feeding scheme is a core project of the Federal Government in an effort to yield about 1.14 million jobs, and increase food production.
At the event which he spoke on the topic, “Re-positioning Nigeria for Sustainable Development: From Rhetoric to Performance,” he said;
“One of the most important interventions required in the education sector is capacity building to improve teacher quality. This programme is intended to drive teachers’ capacity development; boost basic education; attract talents to the teaching profession. Better educated population increases economic potential for productivity.
The All Progressives Congress has made a commitment to provide one-meal-a-day for all primary school students; that would create jobs in agriculture, including poultry, catering and delivery services.”
