Technical Adviser of Nasarawa United Kabiru Dogo is of the opinion that the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title this season is undecided in spite of Plateau United maintaining a stronghold on the summit.With 10 Match Days left till the end of the current campaign, Kennedy Boboye’s side sit pretty at the top of the NPFL log with 51 points, 5 clear of second-placed MFM FC. The Jos-based outfit also has a healthy goal-difference of +22, prompting many to tip them as favourites to win their first league title this season.But Dogo, whose Nasarawa United side lost 2-0 to Abia Warriors in Umuahia on Sunday in a Match Day 27 encounter, believes nothing has been decided as far as the destination of the title is concerned, as well as the battle for relegation.“As far as the league is concerned, nobody has been given the trophy as a Champion and nobody has been given ticket for relegation,” Dogo stated.“So the struggle continues. The league can go any other way. Forget about the fact that Plateau (United) are leading; it’s football and anything can change. So you cannot predict anything.“All of us are fighting and at the end of the day, we’ll see where the fighting will take us to. But I believe that by God’s grace, we (Nasarawa United) are going to finish up in a responsible position,” the former coach of Abubakar Bukola Saraki FC said.The ‘Solid Miners’ as Nasarawa United are fondly called, are placed 9th on the NPFL standings with 38 points from 28 matches.

He promised that Guyana would also continue to work towards deepening and strengthening continental cooperation.“We look forward to the day, when, through the initiative of the integration of the Region of South America, our children and grandchildren could drive from Bel Air in Georgetown to Buenos Aires in Argentina,” he said.South America has an area of 17,840,000 square kilometres or 6,890,000 sq miles. Its population, as of 2005, has been estimated at more than 371,090,000. It ranks fourth in area, after Asia, Africa, and North America, and fifth in population, after Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America.President Granger noted that the two countries continue to share common values, including mutual respect for each other’s territorial sovereignty and integrity, mutual non-interference in each other’s political affairs, cooperation for mutual benefit, respect for treaties and international laws and maintenance of international peace and security.According to the President, Guyana and Argentina are also committed to working together to overcome contraband smuggling, piracy, narcotics trafficking and money laundering, crimes that affect the society and economic viability.Granger posited that Guyana understood that it played an important role as the “gateway” between the Caribbean and the continent, and was convinced that with a common vision and voice, “we can avert conflict and overcome threats to our individual and collective security”. “Guyana iterates its commitment to maintaining the continent as a zone of peace.” – says it could be an example to the world
