Since you obtained the opportunity to learn in Indonesia, we have received positive responses on your studies from our partners. We did not make any mistake in selecting the seven of you,” she proudly informed the students.She said while the students are in Liberia, they are expected to visit Grand Kru County to educate other Liberian students on the importance of career education.Responding on behalf of his fellow scholarship beneficiaries, Joseph G.

We feel we are capable to adequately perform all we have learnt thanks to the level of studiousness we demonstrated while still in training,” he said.He said that with the introduction of oil palm in Liberia, the lives of rural citizens will eventually be improved.“GVL’s investment in the country should be welcomed by every citizen. Considering what have seen in Indonesia, “GVL” truly means business. Oil palm concession has the propensity to create employment for many, thus boosting the economy,” he concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

These Arsenal fans beg starlet to return after superb England performance

first_img Phil Foden looks on in awe at Reiss Nelson Reiss Nelson for u21s tonight been class 😍— Glade (@OllieGlade97) October 11, 2018 latest However, Nelson was relentless and left opponents and pundits alike absolutely flabbergasted with his ability.Playing in an inside left position, the Arsenal youngster carved open the beleaguered Andorrans time and time again.And in added time, the 18-year-old capped a fine individual performance by delicately flicking the ball past the onrushing goalkeeper in a 7-0 win.This season, he is currently on loan at Hoffenheim after expressing a desire to further his game under progressive coach Julian Nagelsmann. Reiss Nelson may have only played for 20 minutes in England’s Under-21 win against Andorra, but he certainly captured the imagination of Arsenal fans.With Aidy Boothroyd’s young troops already 5-0 up in a game which saw them seal a spot at Euro 2019, the winger would have been forgiven for showing some mercy from the bench. tense Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update Need Reiss Nelson back and playing for Arsenal next season.— Kunal Bhatia (@KaybeeGooner) October 12, 2018 No need to sign a wide player as Reiss Nelson is progressing well and back next season.
