Jose Mourinho’s Roma lands Gini Wijnaldum on loan from PSG

Published

on


The 31-year-old joins Roma on a season-long loan after being linked to the club for the majority of the transfer window so far.

Wijnaldum fell out of favour at PSG and is said to not be in the plans of new boss Christophe Galtier which led to him being snapped up by Roma as head coach Jose Mourinho wanted him.

Roma officially confirmed the signing with a statement on their official website which was also posted on their Twitter page.

That announcement was then followed by an unveiling video posted on their Twitter page which was both unique and strange.

The video is 27 seconds long and reveals Gini Wijnaldum stepping out of a large pool in which he was fully immersed.

The Dutch midfielder can be seen stepping out of the pool fully kitted in his new Roma jersey with jersey number 25 and then walking away into the sunset.

The former Liverpool star also appeared to be delighted with the move as he alluded to in his own words in another video posted on Roma’s Twitter page.

“Hey, Gini Wijnaldum here, really happy to be here and I hope to see you soon…Daje Roma,” Wijnaldum said in a short video addressing the fans of his new club.

As part of the agreement, there is an option for the transfer to be made permanent at the end of the 2022-23 campaign.

BoG to purchase gold in cedis from September from mining companies

Published

on



The decision to buy gold output of mining firms in cedis was reached during a meeting on Tuesday, August 9, between the Economic Management Team headed by Dr Bawumia, the Bank of Ghana, the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, the Minerals Commission, PMMC and the Ghana Chamber of Mines.

Further details indicate that the Central Bank will commence the purchase of gold in cedis starting next month, September 1, 2022.

The move, forms part of government’s roadmap for the implementation of the Central Bank’s Gold Purchase Programme across the industry.

The gold purchase programme, when effectively implemented, will represent a significant and sustainable addition to Ghana’s foreign exchange reserves over time and strengthen the country’s balance of payments.

The Bank of Ghana’s domestic gold purchasing programme was launched in June 2021 with the primary objective of increasing its gold reserves.

Subsequently, the Bank of Ghana initiated discussions with the Ghana Chamber of Mines (GCM) about its intention to purchase refined gold from mining companies in the country.

While mining companies in Ghana were prepared to support the programme, there was a need to ensure that the initiative met the governance, risk, compliance, and supply chain requirements of their various companies.

Under the programme, the central bank requires an estimated amount of ~10koz of gold annually from members of the Chamber of Mines over the next four to five years.

“Phyna told me before we started playing the HoH games and I just couldn’t concentrate. I feel so bad about it,” Doyin stated amid tears.

Speaking on what attracted her to both housemates, Doyin shared:

“I just really liked the girl. She was my roommate during the lockdown. We really got to know each other. She is so selfless and loyal and then Cyph. The first day I saw him, I just really wanted to know him. He has balls, I don’t really get to meet men with balls. It was like a friendship pro max. Like a senior brother of friendship. There were really just my people.”

The level one housemate also shared how it hurt so much that the housemates and viewers never got to see the positive sides of Beauty.

“The way she left, I know she is way more than that and I wish she stayed long enough for people to get to know this side.”

Recall that Beauty left the house in a first-of-its-kind disqualification. The housemate got kicked out for flouting Big Brother’s anti-violence rules.

Cyph, on the other hand, was the second housemate to be evicted from the season.
