Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez is on war path with her family member after being branded “shameless” for not informing relatives that her father was critically sick.
According to a Mirror report, Rodriguez’s dad, Jorge Eduardo, gave up the ghost in Argentina on January 31, at 70 after a protracted illness.
Last week, Georgina’s dad reportedly suffered complications similar to a stroke attack he previously had over two years ago, but her model’s aunt is furious she did not send a distress call to the family regarding his situation.
Speaking on a ‘Socialite’ programme broadcast courtesy of Spanish TV channel Telecinco, Georgina’s aunt, who spoke through the phone without disclosing her name said: “The whole world is going to find out what kind of girl she is and how shameless she is. She had to make the gesture of calling her uncle and telling him that he [Jorge] had days, hours or minutes left.
“He would have caught a flight and gone, because to him he was like a father. At least say your father has died. You don’t do that in secret like they did it,” she added.
Rodriguez is already back in Argentina capital – Buenos Aires after her father demise.
Local media reports suggest Rodriguez was not in good terms with family members after her aunt refused taking her calls after her grandmother playfully requested some financial support.
“You’re with a millionaire footballer. Let’s see if you’ll send me a thousand euros.”
The 25-year-old Rodriguez gave birth to Ronaldo’s first child, Alana Martina, in November 2016.
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said it was shocked by the last minute postponement of the presidential and National Assembly elections earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday, February 16, 2019.
The labour union advised the federal government to declare a two or three-day public holiday to enable workers travel to cast their votes following voter apathy that may have greeted the postponement of the elections, The Nation reports.
The president of the NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, in a statement said many Nigerians would not have been able to vote due to logistics problems if the election held.
“We at the Nigerian Labour Congress join other Nigerians in expressing our shock at the last minute postponement of the presidential and National Assembly elections scheduled to hold on Saturday, February 16, 2019,” Wabba said.
“We share in the pains of those who in an uncommon show of patriotism, had to travel long distances to perform their civic duty. We similarly understand the outrage of those who had incurred huge and unquantifiable logistic costs. No explanation will be good enough given INEC’s repeated assurances and the zeal of Nigerians to cast their vote.
“However, given the fact that had the election taken place, a huge number of Nigerians would have been disenfranchised on account of gross and wide-spread logistic deficit, the postponement, as painful as it is, is a lesser evil of the two.”
The NLC urged Nigerians not to be disillusioned by the postponement but brace up for the rescheduled election.
