first_imgMinimum Wage: According to information provided by Wikipedia from the preliminary 2006 Nigerian Census figures, Neymar’s cost price would work wonders in the Nigerian labour force. Taking into account the 36 states of the federation including the Federal Capital Territory, all states excluding Kano, Lagos, Kaduna, Katsina, Oyo and Rivers State are under the 5million population mark per state. At a present rate of N18,000 monthly minimum wage, Neymar’s cost price will pay 5,300,000 Nigerian workers drawn from any of the 31 states, a welcome relief it will be to the Nigerian governors. Unfortunately, they can only dream about such a bailout as the funds belong only to FC Barcelona! Defence and Health Budget: A couple of days ago, Twitter went on a meltdown when it was revealed that Manchester City’s total defence cost more than the national defence budget of Bosnia and DR Congo. Well, wait for it! According to information gathered from a December 2016 publication of Punch Nigeria, which gave a detailed breakdown of the 2017 national budget, the ministry of defence and health were both allocated the princely sum of N87billion each. Unfortunately, the purchase of just one football player dwarfs those figures, as Neymar will comfortably fund either of the ministries budget with about N8billion remaining unspent. The football world was shaken to its bone marrows, when PSG through Neymar’s representatives paid the £198million (N95billion) release clause in FULL to Barcelona on Thursday.Here are five things the record transfer fee when converted to Naira can purchase in Nigeria.Linda Ikeji’s home: News broke out late 2014, that renowned blogger, Linda Ikeji had purchased a home for a reported sum of N500million in Banana Island, Lagos. The area which houses the super-rich, and powerful in Nigeria, will be shaken to its foundation if Neymar does venture into the real estate business in Nigeria. Agreed that real estate appreciates over time, but judging by the 2014 estimate of Ikeji’s home, Neymar’s big fat cheque will purchase 190 houses in Banana Island! Galactica Star: Nigeria playboy, Kola Aluko, who is a known associate of former Petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke has been reported to own a £50million Galactica Star yacht which he rented out to billionaire entertainment couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce. Aluko is under intense global pressure to dispose of the luxury item, but a closer estimate reveals that Neymar’s £198million transfer fee will comfortably purchase three or four of such yachts.4center_img Davido: Nigerian and global music act, Davido who is widely known as Omo Baba Olowo (O.B.O) in his home country was in the news earlier in the year with talk of 30billion in the account. Though he never revealed the currency the said sum was owned in, but it could be concluded that it was in Naira. Davido went over the moon, releasing a single titled ‘IF’, where he talked about having 30billion in the account. Based on the Neymar transfer fee, O.B.O will be forced to record three of such singles in the studio!

first_imgMORE: 10 key revelations from Brady’s interview with Stern”I have tremendous affection for Trump. We used to do radio shows together, have fun, he came to my wedding and all this kind of thing,” Stern said. “I don’t know where you’re at politically, but it was weird because there was a time when Donald called me up and said, ‘Hey, I want you to speak at the Republican convention.’ And Donald can be very forceful. It was weird.”I was actually a Hillary Clinton supporter. I was really into her,” Stern continued. “It was awkward for me because he was asking me to do that, and I had to say no to him, and it’s not an easy thing to do to somebody who has been kind to you.”Trump also reached out to Brady, who declined to speak at the convention because he wasn’t going to do “anything political.” He explained that Trump’s presidential campaign changed everything and made him “uncomfortable.””He would call me after games, ‘I watched your game Tom, let’s play golf together.’ So 2003, 2004, that’s kind of the way it was,” Brady said of his friendship with Trump. “He would golf, and then he became someone that — he would come up to our games and stand on the sideline. He would cheer for the Patriots. He always had a way of connecting with people, and still does.”But the whole political aspect came, and I think I got brought into a lot of those things because it was so polarizing around the election time. It was uncomfortable for me. You can’t undo things — not that I would undo a friendship — but the political support is totally different than the support of a friend.”Brady believes modern politics is too divisive, so he chooses to focus on embracing leadership and bringing people together. He told Stern his connection to Trump never created problems within the locker room.”No, no, never,” Brady said. “(My teammates) know me. They know who I am. I was with them every day.”MORE: Brady reveals why he left Pats for BucsThen Stern stunned the Bucs quarterback with a question about Trump wanting Brady to date Ivanka, his daughter and senior presidential advisor. Brady couldn’t help but laugh and said Trump never directly suggested he should form a power couple with Ivanka. Tom Brady has been friends with President Donald Trump for many years, but the future Hall of Famer’s personal support doesn’t necessarily extend into politics.In a lengthy interview on Wednesday’s edition of “The Howard Stern Show,” the Buccaneers quarterback tackled a number of topics, including his relationship with Trump and where he stands politically. Stern was curious how Brady interacted with Trump in the lead-up to the 2016 election; Stern had formed his own bond with Trump, but didn’t want to endorse him. “Did I consider dating her? No, there was never that where we ever dated or anything like that,” Brady said.You can hear Tom Brady squirm when Howard Stern asks him about Donald Trump wanting to hook him up with Ivanka pic.twitter.com/0WurJBEV5j— gifdsports (@gifdsports) April 8, 2020Brady wisely maneuvered his way out of Stern’s blitz and scrambled away by pointing to Gisele, his wife since 2009.”It all worked out for me anyway,” Brady said. “I married the woman of my dreams. … I think I married the most amazing woman. So I have no regrets.”last_img read more
