It’s quarter-final day in the ISSA-FLOW Super Cup. The last eight are in action, five from the ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup and another three from the ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup.The main battles will be at Sabina Park. St George’s College, located just a stone’s throw from the venue, should have massive support when they line up against Clarendon-based daCosta Cup team Glenmuir High at 4 p.m. Two hours later, Wolmer’s Boys will face rural kingpins Clarendon College at the same venue.Over at the National Stadium, high-riding St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) will oppose surprise team St Jago at 4 p.m. before Jamaica College square off against Excelsior High in an all-Manning Cup affair at 6 p.m.Wolmer’s coach, Vassell Reynolds, who played in the rural competition himself, says his ‘town school’ will not take their ‘rural opponents’ for granted.”I expect the rural schools to push the urban-area schools all the way, but we (Wolmer’s) will win,” Reynolds warned.Full sweep in sight”We are aiming for three finals, and will not let Clarendon College spoil that,” he noted of his alma mater. In a preseason fixture, Wolmer’s edged Clarendon College 1-0.Meanwhile, Clarendon College will be looking to rebound quickly from a quarter-final daCosta Cup defeat earlier this week, and will arrive at Sabina Park with victory in mind.”As usual, we are confident and are looking forward to a good game. I know Wolmer’s are a very impressive team, but we also have what it takes to triumph and to move on,” Clarendon College’s coach, Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis, told The Gleaner.”It is a long season, four trophies are on offer, and we are still in the hunt for all of them, so it means we are on track.. Wolmer’s are in front of us and we need a victory; that is what we are focusing on right now,” the former Reggae Boy stressed.Last year, Manning Cup teams filled three of four semi-final spots and Clarendon, STETHS and Glenmuir will be looking to turn the tables and stake their claim for the FLOW Super Cup and $1 million prize.MORE ON FLOW SUPER CUP B4 and B5.
…company warns public not to be fooledSeveral reports have surfaced over the last few days of scammers, claiming to be brokers of the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL), who are allegedly “selling” properties/assets.NICIL’s CEO (ag),Colvin Heath-LondonThis is according to acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Colvin Heath-London, who on Friday stated that a number of persons with criminal intent have been approaching unsuspecting persons claiming to be in authority and thus authorised to sell a number of properties belonging to NICIL.However, he added that this is far from the truth, and in light of this, is appealing to the public to beware of such scammers posing as officials of NICIL.“We seems to be in a season where there are desperate people doing desperate things and I would like to warn and appeal to everyone to be not fall for the lies being peddled by an evidently organised criminal network.”Guyana Times was told that it was revealed that those responsible have been posing as ‘owners’ and/or ‘brokers’ of several prime properties which all belong to the Government of Guyana with the view of deceiving unsuspecting buyers into believing that they are in a position to sell these properties.“I would like to warn persons in and out of Guyana to be on the lookout for persons posing as owners and or ‘brokers’ claiming to be in a position to sell these assets,” Heath-London stated.NICIL has declared that no property and/or assets belonging to it can be sold without the authorisation of its CEO or its Board of Directors.“We are urgently appealing to unsuspecting buyers to be on the lookout for persons who are seeking to scam them of their hard earn monies,” Heath-London said.As such, he is warning the general public to be on the lookout for persons who are “seeking to gain wealth through dishonest and criminal-minded approaches,” reiterating that only him, as the CEO, or NICIL’s Board has been invested with that authority.“As the CEO, I would like persons to be alerted so as to thwart any such unprofessional, illegal acts that may drag in unsuspecting persons with the promise that they are buying properties,” he added.NICIL is 100 per cent owned by the Government of Guyana.The primary objectives of the company are that of subscribing for, taking or otherwise acquiring, holding and managing the Government’s shares, stocks, debentures or other securities of any company, co-operative societies or other corporate body.This means that all Government shareholdings in public corporations and companies including those falling under the Public Corporations Secretariat, and the Co-operative Finance Administration Institutions were to be transferred to NICIL. The objective was to have a unified and systematic management of Government’s shareholdings.
