MUST READ: Coca-Cola, PespiCo, others agree to cap sugar in drinks


Singapore’s Ministry of Health said on Tuesday seven major drinks companies, including Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, would limit the sugar content of drinks they sell in Singapore.

A statement by the ministry in Singapore said the move was part of the city-state’s campaign to fight diabetes.

The ministry said the seven firms had signed an industry pledge to remove by 2020 drinks that contain more than 12 per cent sugar from their portfolios of sugar-sweetened beverages.


The other companies are F&N Foods, Malaysia Dairy Industries, Nestle, Pokka and Yeo Hiap Seng.

“In addition to this industry commitment, Coca-Cola Singapore is making an additional commitment to reduce the sugar content in our portfolio of sugar-sweetened beverages by 10 per cent by 2020,” Coca-Cola said in an email to Reuters.

It said it had been reducing sugar and calories across many of its brands and offering more new drinks with low sugar content or no added sugar.

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong mentioned the drinks makers’ agreement in a speech on Sunday, in which he also urged people to drink water, eat whole meal bread and brown rice.

Singapore is one of the first countries in Asia to target sugary drinks, bringing it in line with many Western nations that have sought to mitigate the health risks associated with sugar through measures such as taxes and warning labels.

Globally, beverage firms have been reworking recipes, racing to cut sugar and introduced more options to cater to increasingly health-conscious consumers.


Daily sugar consumption per capita from soft drinks has risen since 2010 to 6.08 grams in Asia-Pacific in 2016, with Singapore at 11.99 grams, according to market research firm Euromonitor.

Consumption has been trending lower in Europe and the U.S, but it is still higher than in Asia-Pacific.

The World Health Organisation said last year drinking fewer calorific sweet drinks was the best way to curb excessive weight and prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, although fat and salt in processed foods were also to blame.
Among Asian countries, the Philippines has slapped levies on sugar-sweetened beverages, while Indonesia and India have been considering similar taxes.

MUST READ: Why Nigeria broadcasting sector is underdeveloped – Lai Mohammed


The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said on Tuesday that lack of scientific Audience Measurement System was responsible for the underdevelopment of the nation’s broadcasting sector.

The minister stated this in Lagos at the third International Summit on Digital Broadcasting in Nigeria organised by the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON).

He noted that audience measurement was key to fostering growth of the broadcasting industry and making Digital Switch Over (DSO) sustainable for all stakeholder.


“We need an objective and scientific Audience Measurement System that articulates value of the content to consumers, as well as value of the audience to advertisers, particularly in the television sector.

The minister noted that what was obtainable at the moment was that the advertising community relied on subjective factors when making decisions on the content they wanted, as opposed to how many viewers the content truly attracted.

He said the factor had contributed to the less optimal investment by key stakeholders in the television broadcasting value-chain.

“The consequence is that TV platforms are subjected to renting out space on their channels to sustain their businesses while content producers become over reliant on sponsorship

“This existing model unfortunately skews the authenticity of creative output in favour of a few decision makers and not the millions of TV viewers.

“It stunts the quality of the content that can be created and limits the capacity of television platforms to invest in dynamic offerings that consumers will be attracted to.

“It will never enable the Nigeria’s creative and entertainment industry to reach its full potential,” he said.

The minister said that the lack of audience measurement also rendered the nation’s broadcasting advertising market non proportionate with its population when compared to South Africa and Kenya

“Despite having a population three times more than South Africa, Nigeria’s television advertising revenue in 2016, at 309 million dollar, was 76 per cent behind that of South Africa, at 1.301 billion dollar.


“By 2020, the gap between South Africa and Nigeria is projected to marginally decline to 72 per cent. Similarly, in the radio sector, the value of Nigeria’s 2016 advertising revenue of 81 million dollar was 75 per cent behind its peers, South Africa and Kenya, both at 343 million dollar.

“Kenya is projected to overtake South Africa in 2017 as the leading radio advertising market. In both territories, the value and growth rate of the broadcasting revenue is largely influenced by the availability of a scientific Audience Measurement System.

“It provides confidence to Advertisers in measuring their Return-On-Investment,” he said.

To address the shortcoming, the minister said that it was imperative to put in place a robust Audience Measurement System that is in line with global standards.

He said the framework must ensure that content producers receive their just due for the value of the content they create while advertising community will be guaranteed return on their investment on media placements.

Mohammed announced that his ministry was ready to take the important first step in addressing the challenge by organising an Audience Measurement Conference.

He said the conference, which would hold on October 3 in Lagos, would afford stakeholders opportunity to contribute to efforts in coming up with a scientific Audience Measurement System that would boost the sector.

“This is our next task and we invite all well meaning practitioners of this industry to join hands with us to achieve this,” he said.


Earlier, the chairman of BON, Mr John Momoh, said the summit on digital broadcasting was organised to galvanise opinions of stakeholders on how to achieve effective and efficient transmission from analogue to digital broadcasting.

He enjoined the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission to come out clearly on the timeline for DSO.

Momoh, who is also the chairman of Channels Media Group, owner of Channels Television, was represented at the event by BON Vice Chairman, Hajiya Sa’a Abubakar.

MUST READ: Trump open to eventual political deal with Taliban


President Donald Trump Monday left the door open to an eventual political deal with the Taliban, in an address on America’s news strategy in the 16-year Afghan conflict.

“Someday, after an effective military effort, perhaps it will be possible to have a political settlement that includes elements of the Taliban in Afghanistan,” he said.

“But nobody knows if or when that will ever happen,” he added, before vowing that “America will continue its support for the Afghan government and military as they confront the Taliban in the field.”


Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump’s decision to pressure Pakistan and step up military operations in Afghanistan could help US diplomats build towards a political solution.

“Our new strategy breaks from previous approaches that set artificial calendar-based deadlines,” said Tillerson, in a statement issued after he attended Trump’s speech.

“We are making clear to the Taliban that they will not win on the battlefield. The Taliban has a path to peace and political legitimacy through a negotiated political settlement to end the war.”

“We stand ready to support peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban without preconditions,” Tillerson promised.

“We look to the international community, particularly Afghanistan’s neighbors, to join us in supporting an Afghan peace process.”

MUST READ: Liverpool out to complete Hoffenheim mission


Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will attempt to clinch their place in the lucrative Champions League group stage this week as they take a 2-1 lead into their play-off second leg against Hoffenheim.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick and a second-half own goal handed the Reds a commanding advantage in Germany, but Mark Uth’s late strike provided Hoffenheim with a glimmer of hope ahead of the return at Anfield.

Klopp rotated his squad for Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League, making five changes to the team with Wednesday’s European encounter weighing heavily on his mind.

It is three years since the Anfield outfit, five times European champions, last graced the group stage of the continent’s elite club competition.


“The performance and the result were not perfect, far from it. We still have much to do in this tie,” Klopp said in Liverpool’s matchday programme at the weekend.

The club have also rejected a third bid from Barcelona for star playmaker Philippe Coutinho, turning down a reported offer worth around £114 million ($146.5 million, 124.7 million euros).

The 25-year-old Brazilian has submitted a transfer request, but Liverpool have publicly stated Coutinho, currently sidelined by a back problem, is not for sale at any price.

Hoffenheim started the new Bundesliga campaign with a 1-0 victory at home to Werder Bremen, and Germany midfielder Kerem Demirbay still harbours hope of stunning Liverpool in the second leg.

“We could achieve something extraordinary there. We could turn it around. We will give everything to do that,” said Demirbay, who was part of Germany’s Confederations Cup-winning side in Russia.

– Nice turn to Sneijder, Balotelli –
Scottish champions Celtic are all but assured of a return to the group phase following a 5-0 demolition of Astana in last week’s first leg in Glasgow.

Brendan Rodgers’ side stretched their unbeaten domestic run to 52 matches with Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Kilmarnock and have conceded just once in nine matches this season.

James Forrest struck the Hoops’ opener at Rugby Park but insists Celtic cannot afford to be overconfident ahead of their 6,000km trip to Kazakhstan.

“We just can’t get complacent, we need to make sure we start the game well and start positive and hopefully get a positive result,” said Forrest.


Nice face a monumental task to overturn a 2-0 deficit against Napoli on Tuesday, but the French side will be boosted by the presence of Mario Balotelli and new recruit Wesley Sneijder.

The Dutchman, a Champions League winner with Inter Milan in 2010, played 85 minutes in his debut on Saturday as Nice downed Guingamp 2-0 for their first points of the season.

“I feel good, especially with a win, you feel really good. As for my performance, I know I can do better,” Sneijder, who joined on a free transfer following his exit from Galatasaray, told Canal+.

“It was my first match so I need to get to know the guys. The second half was better than the first but I still need time.”

Balotelli also made his first appearance of the league season after coming on a second-half substitute following his return from injury.

Sevilla will fancy their chances of qualifying for a third straight group stage campaign as they hold a 2-1 edge over Turkey’s Istanbul Basaksehir, who have never won away from home in Europe.

MUST READ: “It’s not important if we are not favourites in this league,” - Chelsea manager


Antonio Conte said he would be happy for Chelsea to creep up on the rails in the Premier League title race following their clinical 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea were stunned 3-2 by Burnley in the opening game of their title defence, but weathered heavy pressure to ruin Tottenham’s Wembley house-warming party on Sunday thanks to left wing-back Marcos Alonso’s brace.

Chelsea also started last season unsteadily, losing two of their first six matches, only for a 13-game winning run to set them on the path to glory, and Conte sees no reason why the same formula should not work again.


“It’s not important if we are not favourites in this league,” said the Chelsea manager, whose preparations for the season were hampered by his club’s failure to significantly strengthen their squad.

“It was the same last season. We know we are trying to improve our team, our squad, and the club is trying to do its best in the transfer market.

“But I’m very happy when I see this type of game. I’m not speaking about football, but this spirit, this heart, this desire.

“I must be satisfied because my players gave me everything today. They did the same last season.”

With Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas suspended, Eden Hazard injured and Diego Costa still angling for an exit, Conte was obliged to innovate.

He opted for a new-look 3-5-1-1 system that featured David Luiz in midfield alongside new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko, who was pressed into action earlier than scheduled after overcoming a knee injury.

Conte described both players’ performances as “amazing” and said Chelsea’s ability to withstand Spurs’ pressure had been a display of “champions”.

Alonso swept Chelsea ahead with a magnificent 24th-minute free-kick and then netted the winner two minutes from time after substitute Michy Batshuayi’s own goal appeared to have rescued a point for Spurs.

A crowd of 73,587 made for an occasionally deafening atmosphere and Conte suggested the fervour of the fans had benefited his team.

– Pochettino ‘not worried’ –
“In this fantastic stadium, to feel this atmosphere is amazing,” he said.

“Our fans tried to push the same, despite 70,000 Tottenham supporters. But honestly, I think to see this atmosphere is great also for the opponents.”

Spurs’ defeat ended their run of 14 successive home league wins and means they have now lost eight of the last 10 games they have played at Wembley, their home this season while White Hart Lane is rebuilt.

But manager Mauricio Pochettino once again rubbished talk of a ‘Wembley curse’, asserting that his team had been “much better” than Chelsea and saying he was “very happy” with their performance.

“I think the ‘Wembley effect’ is not the reason we lost the game,” said Pochettino, who has had a pitch at Spurs’ north London training ground enlarged to Wembley’s dimensions to help his players adapt.

“The team played really well. It’s not fair to blame Wembley. For me, Wembley is one of the best places in the world to play football.


“We need to stop. I think today it was clear: if you love football and watch football, and want to watch the game again, you will see that Wembley was not the problem.

“We have to accept they were more clinical than us in front of goal. The opportunities we created, we didn’t score.”

Spurs went through the whole of last season without losing a single game at White Hart Lane, but despite seeing his side succumb to a first home defeat since May 2016, Pochettino believes his team have improved.

“We are in a position much better than how we started last season,” said the Argentinian, whose side host Burnley this weekend.

“The team is one step higher than last season. It’s true it’s disappointing to lose our first home game, but the character and performance were there. I’m not worried about the team.”

MUST READ: Ebonyi APC, labour laud Buhari’s position on Nigeria’s indivisibility


The Ebonyi chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) have commended President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s position on Nigeria’s indivisibility.

The Ebonyi APC Chairman, Mr Eze Nwachukwu and another chieftain of the party in the state, Dr Paul Okorie, said the president’s position had renewed the hope of Nigerians on the country’s continued existence.

They spoke separately in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Monday in Abakaliki,while reacting to Buhari’s Monday nationwide broadcast, on return from medical vacation in London.

Nwachukwu said that the address of Mr President had renewed and reinvigorated the hopes of all Nigerians.According to him, the president’s position on Nigeria’s indivisibility and corporate unity has remained unchanged and the broadcast to Nigerians has further reinforced this belief.

“We as a party in Ebonyi are happy and full of joy for the recovery and return of our president and leader of our great party to the country to continue with the mandate given to him by Nigerians.

“The president has expressed his profound love for the country and commitment to ensuring the indivisibility, corporate existence and unity of the nation.


“His broadcast has renewed and reinvigorated our hope that the country will remain one and that the enemies of the country cannot achieve their goals of causing the disintegration of Nigeria.

“The president has also vowed to intensify the administration ‘s fight against insurgency, terrorism, ethnic violence, kidnapping and other criminal activities that threaten the peace of the country.

“The president has enormous political will to achieve all these, but only needs our support and cooperation,” Nwachukwu said.He commended the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo for the brilliant way he piloted the affairs of the country on behalf of the president.

” The party in Ebonyi commends and congratulates the vice president for the effective control of the machinery of government in acting capacity during the president’s medical vacation in London, ” he added.Okorie on his part said that the return and the broadcast of Buhari had laid to rest the agitations by some uninformed groups and rumours about the death of Mr President.

” God is the giver and taker of live. We thank Him for restoring the live of Mr President and we are happy that he is back to continue with his mandate of leading the country.

“He addressed a lot of critical issues challenging the peaceful coexistence of the country in his broadcast to Nigerians, and I believe that now that his health is fully restored, that he will brace up to the challenges.“He is the vision-bearer of the present administration and hence he needs the support and cooperation of every citizen.

“He has promised commitment to ensuring that the country remains indivisible, united and peaceful for all ethnic groups to live and to coexist harmoniously,” Okorie said.

He said that the party would support the second tenure bid if the president makes himself available in 2019.“The APC in Ebonyi will throw its weight behind the president if he declares interest for second tenure in 2019.

“The president should be given the opportunity to consolidate on the achievements and progress made in the transformation of the Nigerian State.“His anti-graft war, fight against terrorism and insurgency, infrastructure development among others are some of the programmes that require time to complete and consolidate.

“Government is like a new-born baby that requires time to undergo through the various but gradual stages of development before evolving into a full adult.“We should be patient and allow the president and his administration some time to address the multifaceted problems it inherited from previous administrations.

“We are going to support him to run for second term if he makes himself available in view of the transformation he has brought in the polity; he is now strong and energetic to shoulder the burden of governance, ” he said.

Ebonyi NULGE President, Mr Leonard Nkah, who spoke, noted that they posed serious threat to peaceful coexistence of the country.
Nkah identified lack of social justice as the major cause of the divisive agitations and terrorism in the country and appealed to the authorities to address the issue.

“Lack of social justice has given rise to hate-speeches, secessionist agitations and imbalance in the distribution of the nation’s wealth and resources, including lopsided appointments and promotions in the armed forces, police and other federal institutions.

“We think that addressing the issue of social justice is a catalyst to addressing other myriads of problems confronting the nation.“Mr President has shown considerable political will in addressing the situation and we are urging Nigerians to give their support to the president and his administration, ” Nkah said.

Five Things We Learned From The Opening weekend of the new season - Premier League


The Premier League returned with bang as Arsenal staged a thrilling fightback to beat Leicester, champions Chelsea suffered a shock defeat against Burnley and Romelu Lukaku marked his Manchester United debut with a brace in their rout of West Ham.

Here is a look at five things we learned from the opening weekend of the new season:

Problems mount for Conte
Throughout a turbulent close-season, Antonio Conte had grown increasingly fraught as Chelsea failed to deliver his transfer targets, while allowing several players to leave.

The Chelsea boss claimed defending the title would be the toughest test of his career and Conte’s worst fears were confirmed in Saturday’s stunning 3-2 home defeat against Burnley.

Rocked by Gary Cahill’s early red card, Chelsea crumbled as Burnley scored three times in the first half with hardly any resistence from the lacklustre champions.

Goals from Alvaro Morata and David Luiz put a flattering gloss on the score, but, with Cesc Fabregas also sent off, Conte’s already depleted squad will be even more under-manned due to suspensions.

“We lost our composure. We have to improve a lot on this aspect because there was the rest of the game to try to do our best,” he grumbled.



Perfectionist Guardiola not satisfied
After Manchester City’s trophyless first season under boss Pep Guardiola, the Spaniard vowed to learn from his failed English exam.

Guardiola’s main takeaway from City’s flop last term was his side must be more ruthless in the penalty area, while matching their rivals’ work rate.

Saturday’s 2-0 win at Brighton was a step in the right direction, but the City boss warned his players he still isn’t satisfied.

Sergio Aguero made the breakthrough after 70 minutes and Lewis Dunk’s own goal doubled City’s advantage five minutes later, yet Guardiola said:

“We have to learn to attack better. “Last season we ran a lot but in the boxes we were not good. Hopefully in the future we can be more accurate.”



Man United look like title contenders
It is very early days, but Manchester United’s emphatic 4-0 victory over West Ham United suggested they may be about to mount a first serious title challenge since Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

Jose Mourinho’s side often dominated their opponents last season without being able to make it count, but it was a completely different story at a sun-kissed Old Trafford as a team spearheaded by new striker Romelu Lukaku put West Ham to the sword.

Lukaku scored twice, either side of half-time, before late goals from substitute Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba completed United’s most convincing opening-weekend win since a 5-1 demolition of Fulham in August 2006.



Arsenal’s defence is a mess
Goals from substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud earned Arsenal a thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester City, but there was no glossing over their defensive problems.

Leicester’s first and third goals came from simple corner routines, while their second stemmed from a loose pass by Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka.

Arsenal finished the game with midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at right-back, right-back Hector Bellerin at left-back and two left-backs — Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac — in central defence.

Laurent Koscielny remains suspended for next weekend’s trip to Stoke City and Gabriel is still sidelined, but Shkodran Mustafi and Per Mertesacker could return to give the defence a more conventional — and solid — appearance.



Liverpool might not miss Coutinho
Liverpool made a frustrating start to the season, denied victory in a 3-3 draw at Watford after Miguel Britos’s stoppage-time leveller for the hosts was allowed to stand despite an apparent offside.

At the other end of the pitch, however, Philippe Coutinho was not missed. The Brazil playmaker, absent due to a back injury, is the subject of strong interest from Barcelona, which has been met equally firmly by Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group, who are determined not to sell him.

But Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and new signing Mohamed Salah all scored and with Adam Lallana still to return from injury and Divock Origi, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke also at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal, if Coutinho were to leave, Liverpool might not miss him as much as their fans fear.
