Nana Akuoko Sarpong thrilled with Great Olympics’ league return

first_imgThe Omanhene of the Agogo Traditional Area and patron of Accra Great Olympics, Nana Akuoko Sarpong, says he is very excited to see the club back in the top division of Ghana football.Olympics together with King Faisal were given places in next season’s Ghana Premier League after a decision was taken at the Ghana FA’s Elective Congress on October 25 in Accra.The decision was to re-instate the two teams after several petitions from them saying that they had been relegated from the elite division unfairly.Speaking to Citi Sports on Monday, Nana Akuoko Sarpong expressed his joy at seeing Olympics back in the league and he also recounted his long-standing association with the club.“When I heard the news, I called my brother, H.E. Amarkai Amarteifio, to congratulate him on our successful re-entry into the league.My association with the club goes way back to 1954 when I came to Accra Academy. At the time, Great Olympics, had broken away from Standfast to start a new club. I have gone to become chairman of the club on three separate occassions.”Nana Akuoko Sarpong went to give his opinion of how the team could ensure success in the coming league campaign. He stated that Olympics would have to recruit players who would be loyal to the team’s cause and also urged the fans to back the team at all times.“Great Olympics will have to bring in players who are loyal. They should be wary of players that I call ‘Trojan players’. These players pretend to play for your teams but in reality, they serve the interests of other teams. Great Olympics will have to screen  players before they are signed.For the fans, I want them to support the team wholeheartedly. I want them to back the team with their money too and not only leave contributions to the team’s management. The supporters are the real owners and the players must play to satisfy them. What the fans should do in return is to show a lot of love to the team.”Great Olympics will get a good idea of how their Ghana Premier League season will play out when the fixtures for the season are announced by the Ghana FA in coming days.The NC has proposed November 3 for the start of the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season.last_img read more

Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with. I am hoping things will ease with time so we can all resume lives the way they were. I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection. I hope that it will not complicate anyone’s health situation and that everyone will be fine.

This IS NOT A JOKE. https://t.co/SUdxfijkbK— Nicholas Kyrgios (@NickKyrgios) June 22, 2020As for Djokovic, he provided some additional thoughts on the tournament.”We organized the tournament at the moment when the virus has weakened, believing that the conditions for hosting the Tour had been met,” Djokovic said. “Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with. I am hoping things will ease in time so we can all resume lives the way they were. I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection.

More than $9.3 billion in taxes paid to State of Iowa in past 12 months

first_imgDES MOINES — The state of Iowa collected over half-a-billion dollars more in taxes during the last 12 months than during the previous fiscal year.Fiscal Year 2019 for the State of Iowa ended Sunday. Preliminary figures indicate tax revenue growth was ahead of expectations by nearly $100 million. In total, the State of Iowa took in more than $9.3 billion in taxes and fees during the past 12 months.Officials say it’s hard to estimate how much of the tax windfall is due to higher wages in Iowa and how much is due to a change in a state income tax deduction. Iowans get a deduction on their state income taxes for federal taxes paid. That deduction has declined because of the tax cuts enacted at the federal level.The phased-in state income tax cuts Republican lawmakers approved in 2018 started to take effect in January of this year — halfway through the state’s just-concluded fiscal year.last_img read more
