Things weren’t nearly as pretty for Wilson early in Week 5 against the Vikings, of all teams, but then he came around in crunch time to remind us why he’s at the front of the pack for MVP honors. Even though he’s not necessarily the most athletic or most strong-armed of the QBs, you wouldn’t take anyone over him for a 60-minute performance right now. If you’re into projected stats, get a load of this: Wilson is on pace for 4,800 yards, 61 TDs, and just 10 INTs, averaging nearly 9 yards a throw.

How the region is responding to Singapore’s idea of air travel bubbles, SE Asia News & Top Stories

Singapore is looking to form air travel bubbles with countries and territories that have managed the Covid-19 pandemic well.

Frank Calls For Visa Ban Against Police Top Echelons

BY BODE GBADEBO, Abuja

A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has called on the governments of the United States of America (USA), United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU) to impose visa restrictions on the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, his deputies and assistants over their refusal to disband the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Frank in a statement in Abuja on Sunday said the call became imperative to restore civility and decorum to the activities of the Nigeria Police in their dealings with innocent citizens.

He said that he is optimistic that such visa restrictions would compel the police hierarchy to disband SARS, bring sanity to policing in Nigeria and enable innocent Nigerians to breath.

He insisted that police Officers providing official cover for heinous crimes being committed by the SARS must be identified, prosecuted and dismissed after due investigation.
