Good riddance
The news that the President has ordered the dissolution of the Nigeria Football Federation comes as a welcome relief. Following the woeful performance of the national team at the ongoing World Cup in South Africa, we cannot bring ourselves to call that team ‘Super’ and the NFF had merely offered a sorry excuse of an apology to Nigerians in a communiqué. In that statement, the NFF also insisted on keeping faith with the overpriced Lars Lagerback whom it asked to proceed on a two week leave before resuming as chief coach of the national team.

The history of flight technology is just as much a story of people and ideas as are histories dealing with any other topic related to society and culture. Without question, scholars who write about the history of flight technology have a lot to say about the research, design, building, flying, ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
