Why I Enjoy Champions League Football in Chelsea More Than PSG – Thiago Silva

  Brazilian defender, Thiago Silva, has said he enjoys Champions League football in Chelsea more than PSG because of the Premier League side’s previous success in Europe’s elite competition.

CBN vs MTN: In Conclusion

                 MTN It was the night of Christmas Eve when the whole house was still and even the drop a pin could be heard. But the bigwigs at the Central Bank of Nigeria and mobile network operator MTN were concluding the long-drawn out matter of the latter’s remittances and they both released statements. It was at the peak of Christmas, so it would probably have been missed by a few people. While the difference in the perspective of both organisations was remarkable, what was clear from both versions is that the matter had been resolved and MTN would no longer be required to reverse its historical dividend payments to its shareholders. However, the CBN maintained that the proceeds from the preference share private placement were irregular because they were based on Cer...
