Our Condolence to the bereaved

An oil giant, Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited (ExxonMobil), has denied an allegation of owing the Federal Government to the tune of $1.8bn for the renewal of three oil blocks’ licences.

It said on Monday that it made a total payment of $665m for the renewal of the Oil Mining Leases 67, 68 and 70.

In a July 15, 2019 letter, which was obtained by The PUNCH on Monday, the company told its accuser, the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, that it made full payment for oil blocks’ renewal in 2009.

The alleged indebtedness translates to about N648bn at $1 to N360 exchange rate, while the $665m the company claimed to have paid for the leases translates to N239.4bn.

The PUNCH had exclusively reported that the SPIPRPP led by Mr Okoi Obono-Obla was investigating a petition by human rights lawyer, Mr Femi Falana (SAN), who accused the oil company of only paying about $600m out of the payable renewal fees of $2.5bn (about N900bn) for the three oil blocks.

PUNCH News had obtained the panel’s June 13, 2018 letter addressed to Mobil’s managing director at Mobil House, Lagos, giving the company three weeks to pay the alleged outstanding balance of about $1.9bn to the Federation Account.

ExxonMobil had denied the indebtedness in series of correspondences addressed to the panel including its reply dated July 5, 2018.

Officials of Mobil had also appeared before the panel which insisted that the explanations offered by the company were unsatisfactory.

The SPIRRPP had also called for documents covering the transaction.

Mobil in a July 15, 2019 letter which was signed by the company’s Vice Chairman, Udom Inoyo, forwarded the Department of Petroleum Resources’ and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation’s documents in respect of the transactions to the SPIRRPP.

Further denying the alleged indebtedness, the company stated that the $665m it paid for the Oil Mining Leases 67, 68 and 70 was the full payment in line with the agreement reached with the DPR and the NNPC.

The letter titled, ‘Re: OML 67, 68 and 70 — Renewal Fee and Payment’, read in part, “We have again searched our records on this matter and wish to provide some additional information that supports our position that the renewal fees required of the MPN related to the renewal of OMLs 67, 68 and 70 have been paid in full.”

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo will not face charges after being accused of sexual assault, US prosecutors says. 34year Old Kathryn Mayorga, had alleged that the Juventus player raped her at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

She reportedly reached an out-of-court settlement with the Portuguese star in 2010, but sought to reopen the case in 2018. He denied the allegations.

In a statement on Monday, Las Vegas prosecutors said the claims could not "be proven beyond reasonable doubt".

The Clark County District Attorney's office said the victim reported an assault in 2009, but refused to state where it had happened or who the attacker was. As a result police were unable "to conduct any meaningful investigation".

In August 2018, Las Vegas police investigated the alleged crime again at the request of the victim.

But the statement added: "Based upon a review of information at this time, the allegations of sexual assault against Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Therefore, no charges will be forthcoming."

German weekly magazine Der Spiegel, first published a story about the allegation last year.

It said that in 2010, she reached an out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo involving a $375,000 (£288,000) payment for agreeing never to go public with the allegations.

Ms Mayorga's lawyer said she had been inspired to re-open the case by the #MeToo movement.

Ronaldo has not denied that the two met in Las Vegas in 2009, but said that what happened between them was consensual.

At the time, Ronaldo was playing for Manchester United, and about to join Real Madrid, where he spent the next nine years.

Ronaldo moved to Juventus last July. He has won the Ballon d'Or - awarded to the world's best footballer - in 2008, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017.

Frenkie de Jong would welcome the opportunity to work with Neymar at Barcelona, with the Camp Nou new-boy already excited to be linking up with Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann.

The Netherlands international agreed a switch to Catalunya back in the winter transfer window.

He has now joined a star-studded squad and is expected to make the reigning La Liga champions even stronger with his creativity and ball-playing ability.

Barca are also working to bolster attacking ranks that already included five-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi and prolific Uruguayan Luis Suarez.

Griezmann has been acquired from Atletico Madrid in a €120 million deal (£108m/$135m), while talk of a move to bring Neymar back from Paris Saint-Germain refuses to go away.

“Of course I would like to play with Neymar,” De Jong told Spanish publication Sport.

“I think he's a really good player but it isn't up to me to decide if he comes to Barcelona or not.”

He added on the arrival of World Cup winner Griezmann: “I think we already knew he is an amazing player.

“He's one of the best strikers in the world and he's showing that so far. He's a good guy and amazing player and he's adapting really well.”

Frenkie de Jong Barcelona 2019

De Jong will be looking to provide the ammunition for Barca’s strike force in 2019-20, with a mercurial Argentine one of those he is looking forward to playing alongside.

He said of Messi: “I think he's the best player in the world.

“I'm looking forward to playing with all the guys, not only with Messi.”

While Barcelona have spent big bringing fresh faces into their ranks during the current window, they have not landed all of those who registered on their radar.

De Jong’s former Ajax team-mate Matthijs de Ligt has opted to further his development in Italy alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus.

Barca had been heavily linked with the teenage centre-half, but still boast plenty of proven options in that area of the field.

Quizzed on De Ligt’s decision to head for Serie A, De Jong said: “No, I'm not disappointed. Not at all.

“Of course, I'd be happier if he had decided to join Barcelona. But it's his decision and he made to make it with his family, his agent and girlfriend. I'm happy for him.

“He's made a great move. I would rather see him at Barcelona but Juventus is a good move for him.”
