The Nigerian midfielder struggled at first to establish himself in the EPL with a lot of comparison between him and Kante always being made. But over the last 3 season, Ndidi has gone on to cement his place as the best defensive midfielder in the EPL besting even N’golo Kante himself.

Both players are renowned for their ball-winning skills and work rates but Ndidi says he finds such comparisons irrelevant.

“Yes it [comparison] used to irritate me but it’s football and I completely understand the fans because they love to find something to talk about,” Ndidi told BBC Sport Africa.
“Even before and then when I arrived at Leicester I heard it. I only wanted to be Wilfred Ndidi and not someone else.
“I focus on myself, I am always critical of myself, I do my best to improve as a footballer game by game and give my best for my club.

“The comparison with others, about who is better or if Kante and I play alike, is irrelevant to me. I think all that comparison was for those who love to talk and I didn’t focus on it.

“You’re comfortable when you are yourself and not listening or trying to be something you are not.”

Ndidi’s has helped Leicester City rise to third in the Premier League table and they are also through to the FA Cup final where they will face Chelsea on May 15. Ndidi, 24, has three assists and a goal to his name in the Premier League.

He now says he is focused on the team’s success and not ‘personal glory’.“I just love to give my best and when the media talk about it, that’s good for the team,” he continued.

“I am not someone chasing personal glory or getting distracted because of the praises or criticism, you’ll get both in football anyway.

“My job is helping the team. Doing everything I can to get three points and victory for the club, which is very important.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to be able to play in the Premier League and the chance to enjoy my game at a club like Leicester, where no player is more important than the team.

“I make a contribution like everyone else in the squad and if that helps us to achieve our collective effort, then I am happy to play my part.”

Iniubong Umoren, the job seeker who was raped and murdered by a man who persuaded her with a feigned job interview came out as the best graduating student in the Department of Philosophy, University of Uyo, Uyo.

Netizens have dug out more information on the victim and as seen from the photo displayed below, Iniubong was listed seventh among the top graduating students in the 2020/2020 class with a GPA of 4.12. The results was released by the University of Uyo.

The veracity of the results provided by the reputable institution was asserted by Idorenyin Esikot, associate professor and acting head, Departement of Philosophy, University of Uyo. He told PREMIUM TIMES that Miss Umoren was an outstanding student with exceptional performance.

According to him, she would have likely been employed as a lecturer at the department after her National Youth Service Corpse (NYSC) programme which is mandatory for everyone.

Mr Esikot told PREMIUM TIMES in Uyo on Saturday that she was only a few points away from making first class.

He said:

“She was a very committed and focused student, very hard working. In fact, she was very versatile because apart from her academics, she was a footballer, playing for our female team.

“She was very social and dependable; she wasn’t the kind of student that would play around. Whatever she does, she was very committed,”

Mr Esikot said Miss Umoren expressed sadness over her demise saying her end was a personal loss to him. “Anytime I remember it, it’s like a nightmare. Very unfortunate,” he said.

“If she had been alive and wanted to come into the (teaching) profession, she is the kind of student we would encourage to come into the profession. Because that is a student that never failed a course and was always doing well. Those who know my department, before you can come out top the way she did, then you must agree that she was really hard working.

“We have some of our colleagues, who are lecturers (today), who graduated with less GPA than her,” Mr Esikot said.
