Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, 2016 Presidential candidate for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) in Ghana and business tycoon has penned a note after fire gutted sections of his business outfit in Accra.

In a note titled “Tons of Gratitude, With a Heavy Heart”, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom writes;

As far as my faith will take me, I give thanks to God. This has been one of the most difficult months for me as an entrepreneur ever and for my family.

Still we stand ready to keep moving on, positively. We owe our ability to do this to many, many well-wishers from near and far who encourage us and support our enterprises. I am thankful for our loyal customers and business partners who have gone beyond their personal interests to stand by us no matter what.

We have an amazing team of management and staff. The teamwork they have demonstrated to ensure that the Regency Hotel fire challenge is overcome quickly has been wonderful to observe. They are living the Spiritual Guidance we teach all our employees:

2 Timothy 1:7
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

I am grateful to government officials, friends, politicians from all political parties, religious leaders, business men and women and others for their encouragement and concerns.

I have a heavy heart because though accidents do happen, this fire should not have caused so much damage and destruction. We have a lot to do to reform our state institutions and attitude to working with urgency when we are confronted with problems.

First Digital TV is back on air and ATV and BTA are broadcasting. The affected GN Bank and Gold Coast Fund Management branches will be open today for business next door. Our customers’ funds and data are safe. Our disaster recovery procedures have worked well. We are awake to the need to continuously take preventive measures to protect life and property.

Our Groupe Nduom spirit is well and alive.

I am grateful for the prayers, good wishes and encouragement.

God bless all of us.”

Man Utd: Van De Beek Sees Future Profit In Holding Midfielder Role



Still yet to start a Premier League game since joining from Ajax, Donny van de Beek helped Manchester United to a Champions League victory.

Donny van de Beek believes his deployment in a deeper role worked well as Manchester United thrashed Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.

United won 4-1 at Old Trafford on Tuesday, with Bruno Fernandes’ early double added to by strikes from Marcus Rashford and substitute Daniel James.

With the superb Fernandes causing havoc in the number 10 role, Van de Beek played as a holding midfielder alongside Fred.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s use of the Netherlands international has been a subject of intense debate given he is yet to start a Premier League game but the 23-year-old has played in all four continental matches, starting three.

Van de Beek had two key passes, completed 33 passes in the opposition half-second only to Fred – and boasted an 87.5 percent passing accuracy against Basaksehir.

While he enjoys playing in a more advanced position, Van de Beek also feels comfortable in a deeper role and believes the system was a good one.

Van de Beek: “I was playing these positions at Ajax”

“It worked really well,” Van de Beek, a £40million signing from Ajax, told MUTV. “Some games I play number 10 and sometimes the coach needs me in the control position.

“That is fine for me because before, when I played at Ajax, I was playing in those positions, so it is okay.

“It was a good reaction from the away game. To win 4-1 at home I think you can be happy. The first half was really good especially the first 30 minutes and we played nice football and scored nice goals.

“In the second half we lost too many balls and gave them some chances but the last five minutes we controlled the game again.”

A third straight win in all competitions for United avenged their defeat in Turkey earlier this month and put them three points clear at the top of Group H.

They have now won their last seven home games in European competition by an aggregate score of 24-2.

“It is not finished but we are in a good position,” added Van de Beek, with United sitting ahead of Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.

“We need to keep working and everything will be fine. We now have eyes on the weekend [against Southampton].”
