Nasarawa United players and coaches have dragged the Lafia-based club to an industrial court in the Plateau State capital of Jos over their unpaid salaries, allowances and signing-on fees.According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the Nasarawa State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice was joined in the suit filed before Justice Kenneth Amadi.In the originating summons, Paul Hammachi, who is the counsel for the players and the five coaches, claimed that the club sacked them and refused to pay their entitlements totaling N182.54m (N136. 2m for the players and N46.35m for the coaches).The five coaches (Evans Ogenyi, Sylvester Ekoja, Michael Jatau, Bala Nikyu and El Shammah Inusa) were sacked in 2015.They disclosed that the aforementioned sum (N182.54 m) was scrutinised and awarded to them on September 10, 2015 by the Nigeria Football Federation Players’ Status and Arbitration Committee, Abuja.Via the affidavit, they said: “But, two years after this arbitration, the club and the Nasarawa State Government have not paid us.”The plaintiffs told the court to enforce the verdict since it was, in itself, equal to a judgement of the court.During proceedings on Monday, Ishaku Usman, the counsel for the defendants and the Solicitor General of Nasarawa State, pleaded with the court for extension of time.He thereafter requested for an adjournment and it was granted by Justice Amadi, who adjourned the case until January 24, 2018 for further mention.RelatedChineme Martins: Committee Recommends N10m Fine For Nasarawa United Over Player’s Death, Wants Player ImmortalisedJuly 23, 2020In “Featured”NPFL: Akwa United Chairman Tongue Lash Players and CoachesJanuary 31, 2019In “NPFl”NPFL: Plateau United Management Take Paycut Measures Against Players And Technical CrewFebruary 22, 2019In “NPFl”
LeBron James explains Lakers’ turnaround after ‘reckless’ start vs. Heat: ‘My teammates got on my ass’
The four-time MVP was transformed in the second half, though, finishing with 28 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds as the Western Conference leaders won a thriller to move to 23-3.James revealed some frank words from his colleagues were justified.Our General pic.twitter.com/yCThgBXyC5— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) December 14, 2019″Well, we were down today because of me,” James told ESPN. “I was reckless. My teammates got on my ass. They told me you’re playing too passive, thinking about the game way too much instead of reading and reacting and doing what you do. Anthony Davis got on me, Boogie Cousins got on me and they told me to just be me. LeBron James said being told he was “too passive” by his Lakers teammates in a “reckless” first-half display fueled him to raise his game in a 113-110 victory over the Heat.The Lakers inflicted the first home defeat of the NBA season on the Heat, but a 13th straight road win looked unlikely when they trailed by 14 points in the first half. James dropped well short of his usual sky-high standards in that opening half, turning the ball over seven times and missing seven of his 11 shots. “So I was like, ‘Thank God we have two halves in a basketball game,’ where I can flush the first one, and then come back and try to help us win.”Davis also played a major part in the Lakers’ turnaround, racking up 33 points and 10 rebounds. “We knew it was going to be a dog fight, that’s what it was tonight and the game was fun,” Davis said. “These are the types of games we live for.”
