Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has announced the appointment of former Green Eagles captain and coach, Christian Chukwu, as the new General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of Rangers International Football Club of Enugu.Speaking after a fact finding tour of the club that ended its trophy drought after 32 years last football season, the governor appointed the ex-international who is also a former Rangers captain as the new helmsman to take over from Ozo Chibuzor. As defending champion of the NPFL, the Flying Antelopes are languishing in the 11th spot of the five-week old league with just a win and three draws to earn just six points from a possible 15. Rangers drew their last weekend’s home game with visiting Niger Tornadoes 1-1 at the Cathedral in Enugu.But in his determination to halt the trend, most especially as Rangers will be flying Nigeria’s flag in the CAF Champions League, the governor met with stakeholders of the club like the board, management, players and supporters where it was unanimously agreed to put ‘Chairman Chukwu’ in-charge of its affairs.While reacting to the development, the new General Manager of the club, Chukwu thanked the governor for the appointment and his prompt intervention and promised to put in his best to ensure that Rangers retains its current status in Nigeria football.He called for the cooperation and support of the board, management, players and all other stakeholders of the club to take it to an enviable height.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
“American Idol” contestant Britnee Kellogg, who was eliminated from the competition on Thursday night’s broadcast, was at work Friday at Regents Bank in Vancouver. She hopes to continue singing and hopes that Idol’s exposure will further propel her career. The morning after her tearful exit from “American Idol” was broadcast to the world, Vancouver resident Britnee Kellogg was back at work Friday at a local bank.While fans were posting encouraging words on her Facebook page about her performance, she still hadn’t watched the pivotal episode herself.Thursday night, as the show aired, the 27-year-old divorced mother of two sang at a southeast Portland bar to a sellout crowd and signed autographs afterward. When she got home, she said, she couldn’t bring herself to watch the segment, which featured her performance of “You Just Keep Me Hangin’ On” with two fellow contestants, followed by her emotional end-of-show elimination.“I just didn’t (watch),” Kellogg said Friday. “I was on such a high” after the live performance.The Portland gig wasn’t the bright lights of Hollywood or the glitter of Vegas, but music is music and it won’t stop — according to Kellogg — just because the TV cameras have been turned off. If she’s learned anything from competing on the Fox show, she said it’s to keep pursuing her dream and keep seeking opportunities — all while recognizing she can’t control the outcome.“You just have to take what you can from the experience and do better,” she said. “I do plan on being successful at music at whatever level.”Kellogg credits the show, a widely popular Fox TV fixture that’s recently tanked in ratings, for giving her exposure on the national stage, which she hopes can help further her career. Already, she has been mentioned in People magazine, ABC News and several other national news outlets. Fans from as far away as Brazil and the Philippines have expressed support on her Facebook fan page and on Twitter.
