I Like Paul Pogba A Lot : Zinedine Zidane

Paul Pogba

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says he likes Manchester United’s Paul Pogba “a lot” and that the midfielder “knows how to do everything on the pitch”.

Pogba, 26, has been linked with the Spanish giants and described Real as “a dream club for every player” while on international duty with France.

“I know him personally,” said former France captain Zidane before Real’s La Liga match against Huesca on Sunday.

“He brings so much and there are few players who bring as much as he does.”

Pogba rejoined United from Juventus for a then world record £89m in 2016, but his future at Old Trafford appeared in doubt earlier this season with widespread reports of acrimony between him and former manager Jose Mourinho.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced the sacked Mourinho in December and Pogba’s form has since improved, with the 2018 World Cup winner scoring nine times under the Norwegian.

“He’s a midfielder who knows how to defend and how to attack,” added Zidane, who returned to Real Madrid on 11 March less than 10 months after leaving the Bernabeu.

“But he is not my player, he is at Manchester.

“He has always said that, after Manchester, Madrid has always interested him. So when his experience at Manchester ends, why not come here to Madrid?”

Ghana’s caseload passed the 21, 000 marks on the 8th day of July 2020 as president Akufo-Addo addressed the nation lifting conditionally a raft of restrictions few days ago.

Schools resumed in mid-June, religious places reopened with strict conditions and the observance of health protocols. Social gatherings are to be allowed under certain conditions.

The address, the tenth by the president, also spelled out measures that the government was putting in place to curb the spread of the virus. “Consensus from stakeholder consultation recommends a phased approach to ease anti-Covid-19 restrictions,” he said.

Since we are attributed to news breaking and giving latest updates, four regions are said to be on lockdown following the rate at which these said regions keep recording higher cases as each day passes.

It is said that Greater Accra, Ashanti, Western and Central region might go on partial lockdown for the fact that these four regions mostly come first with the most recorded cases respectively.

As we speak now, Greater Accra leads all the all 16 with over 10,000 cases followed by the Ashanti region, Western and Central.

Although people find it difficult to cope with lockdown measure, the only option left now to put the deadly virus under control is to put the hotspot regions on lockdown partially as the Minister of Information recently hinted.

The Information Minister has said the reason for imposing the partial lockdown restrictions in the 4 regions was to carry out enhanced contact tracing and testing activities to determine the infection rate of Covid-19.

Meanwhile,it is not all confirmed that only four regions will be locked.

Revealed: Mobile Money Fraudsters Now Target Bank Accounts Linked To MoMo Accounts

Published

on

Mobile Money (MoMo) fraudsters have taken their nefarious activities a notch higher after it came to light that they now target MoMo wallets which have been synchronized with bank accounts.

This was brought to the fore by MTN Mobile Money executive, Mr Godwin Tamakloe who explained this in a zoom discussion with members of the Journalists for Business Advocacy (JBA), how the thieves operate.

He said the fraudsters often follow the same routine they use to dupe unsuspecting customers of their hard earn cash but this time around as they keep telling you about settings from the MTN office, they may lead you through some steps which in the end generates an ATM token for them which they use to empty all your money.

Mr. Tamakloe further assured Ghanaians that despite the rise in strategies being adopted by the criminals, MTN is committed to fighting the menace as they engage the police to fight these fraudsters.

This year, a total of 13 mobile money fraudsters have so far been arrested and there appears to be no let-up in the quest to nab more of them. MTN has requested that such fraudsters should be published in the media to serve as a deterrent to others. “Our management has written to the head of the police in that direction; we are still appealing to the police,” Mr Tamakloe disclosed.

Mobile money, which has become so popular after it was first introduced in Ghana by MTN in 2009, is an electronic wallet system linked to a mobile phone number. The service allows users to store, send, and receive money using their mobile phones. The service is operated by three major Mobile Network operators: MTN (MTN Mobile Money), AirtelTigo (AirtelTigo Mobile Money) and Vodafone (Vodafone Cash).

With mobile money, one can send and receive money safely, pay utility bills, TV subscription, buy movie tickets, buy airtime, withdraw cash at merchants’ points including ATMs, and pay for goods and services. Bank of Ghana’s Payment System Statistics on mobile money in Ghana revealed the constant growth of MoMo services.

Statistics about MoMo theft from the Director-General in charge of the Cybercrime Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Dr. Gustav Herbert Yankson indicateS that in April 2019, mobile money operators recorded 388 money fraud cases in 2016 as against 278 in 2015.

“Various sums of money have been made away by the fraudsters; the majority of these cases have been reported to the police for further investigations and some have been successful as suspects have been tried and convicted of their fraudulent actions,” ACP Dr. Gustav Herbert Yankson had revealed in 2019 when he was creating awareness about the activities of the fraudsters.

He said victims of MoMo fraud had lost monies ranging from ¢70 to ¢4,000, describing their experience as unfortunate.
