“Having been at the club since the age of 14, Carl is far more than just a player in our eyes – he is our brother and an important part of our family.

“When Carl came to tell us his news, yes there was sadness, but also great happiness to see him so healthy and hungry for the opportunities that lay ahead of him.

“Carl is strong, a fighter, something he has proven in his playing career and also during what has been a very challenging time for him, so I have no doubt he will be a success in whatever he does next.

“We wish Carl all the very best for the future, but remind him he will always remain a part of the Wolves family.”

Wolves managing directorLaurie Dalrymple said:

“While this news will undoubtedly leave the Wolves family feeling sadness for someone they care about deeply, it also gives us the opportunity to celebrate an exceptional career and a true servant of this football club.

“A brilliant goalkeeper who deservedly earned promotions and international caps, Carl’s exemplary application on the pitch was matched off it by tireless hard work and a positive attitude that will continue to be an inspiration for young players coming through our Academy for many years to come.

“I have been in touch with Carl regularly during a very difficult year for him and his family, and I have been constantly in awe of his strength, positivity and heart at a time of great adversity.

“Carl will, without doubt, be a permanent member of the Wolves family, and I am certain he has a very bright future ahead of him in whatever path he chooses to take.”

Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell said: “I have had the honour and privilege to work alongside Carl for the duration of my time at Wolves, and you would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated and hard working professional.

“The outpouring of support and love from our supporters this time last year, and throughout Carl’s treatment has been testament to how we all feel about Carl, and we are delighted that he is now in complete remission.

“However, it is definitely his contribution on the pitch that he will be most remembered for at Wolves, and forever held as inspiration to future generations of our Academy.

“I’m looking forward to seeing more of Carl this season, and seeing him back at Molineux where he belongs.”

How Leaky Roof Marred The Inauguration Service For Buhari, Osinbajo At National Christian Centre

How Leaky Roof Marred The Inauguration Service For Buhari, Osinbajo At National Christian Centre

According to Punch Metro update, the presidential inauguration interdenominational church service for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday was marred by a leaky roof at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, after a downpour that lasted over an hour.

The National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev Samson Olasupo, who officiated the service, apologised to the congregants who were affected by the drops of rain.

In attendance were the Vice-President and his wife, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo; the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu; Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, Boss Mustapha; and a former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, among others.

Olasupo said, “Let me apologise to all of you who are too fortunate to be sitting where the water is dropping. It was almost 25 years ago or thereabouts when then President Olusegun Obasanjo mobilised his friends and set up a committee outside the government to help us raise money to build this place.

“So, if the roof is leaking now, I think it’s not too early. We have been trying to repair and repair. The last quotation that was submitted for it to be totally replaced was about N100m.

“That’s not too much for the church in Nigeria. Well-spirited individuals who are sensitive to the work of the Lord, please, come to the aid of your Father’s mansion.”

One of the moderators at the service had earlier pointed the attention of the congregation to the infrastructural decline of the Ecumenical Centre, saying there were several leaks in the roof which had inconvenienced some attendees.

As he spoke, he appeared to have received acknowledgement from the Vice-President, who was in attendance, telling the audience, “His Excellency said I should tell you that it is done.”

Earlier, Osinbajo said he was grateful to God for being able to witness the occasion by preserving his and Buhari’s lives.

He said, “I thank God for giving us a second opportunity to steer the affairs of the country. The future is bright. The Bible says the path of the just has a special place.

“The Bible also says the glory of the latter house shall be greater than the glory of the former. This is the reason I am so confident.”

Also, Gowon appealed to all in attendance to pray for the country.

“Let us have peace in the land and pray that this nation continues to survive to eternity,” he said.
