Joins Watford Ladies

A young Nigerian female footballer, Rinsola Babajide, who plies her trade in England, was delighted to open her goalscoring for new club, Watford Ladies during the week following her transfer from Millwall Lionesses.

The 18-year-old Babajide needed only two minutes to open scoring for the new club on Wednesday, though the Hornets were held to a 1-1 draw by Canadian touring side, Griffins WSOC. Babajide fired brilliantly from the tightest of angles.

    The Ibos are also doing Nigeria proud by their criminality in Indonesia, Malaysia ,south Africa and many African countries.
    It is a curse to share same space with these Ibo cannibals.
    Ibo must go.
    On Biafra we stand.

        The thing is, the Yorubas are the most tolerant, open minded, welcoming and developed in Nigeria. They have the best developed minds, maybe followed by the Igbos. For example, how many Yorubas are living and working in Igbo-Land? Vs the number of Igbos working, trading and living and buying land and building houses in the West of Nigeria among th Yorubas? How many religious or ethnic violence do you see in Yorubaland Vs Igboland Vs Hausaland? Forget the past of Awolowo, Zik and Ahmadu Bello, civil or uncivil war? Yoruba people are still the best stock in Nigeria. My name is Adetijani Ahmadu Okafor alias “TJ”.

    These Yorubas are indeed blessed. From all works of life they excel without any form of noise making. Only in Yoruba land you see Muslims, Christians and traditional worshippers co-habiting peacefully even amongst families.
    Little wonder the Yorubaphobia is so much amongst the Ibo noise makers.

      You are a child.Your opinion of Yorubas do not matter.Yoruba is a nation of many tribes who speak closely similar languages.
      They will always excel and do things their own way.

      Ask your parents why the Yorubas were the most developed even before Oil was discovered.

      Ask your parents why they all moved to the south west in the 50s and 60s.
      Simple.

      Yorubas are a special breed highly favored by God.Look around the world , you will see it or ask your elders, they will tell you.

      As per your assertion that they are cowards, that is your view and you have the right to your views.Keep it.

      The Yoruba nation is a typical USA.As an Ondo man, I have different traits from Ibadan man and vice versa,.But we are both united by a common Oduduwa bond who came, met a scattered people and did his best to form them into a virile nation.

      A Yoruba nation where you are free to practice whatever you believe in.A nation that welcomes non-indigenous and never discriminate

      You are a child my friend.What is your history.
