Tottenham Hotspur sacks Jose Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur has sacked Jose Mourinho less than a week before the Carabao Cup final, the Premier League club announced on Monday morning.

The 58-year-old has paid the price for a disappointing campaign, with Spurs currently seventh on the Premier League and with little chance of making the top four.

That may not prove to be too much of an issue, given Tottenham’s involvement in the controversial European Super League – but Mourinho will not be the man to lead them in the new breakaway competition should it materialise.

Mourinho has also been denied the chance of delivering the first piece of silverware to the club in 13 years, with Spurs set to take on Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.

Mourinho was appointed in November 2019, less than 12 hours after Mauricio Pochettino had been dismissed.

A statement from Tottenham read: “The club can today announce that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin, and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties.

“Ryan Mason will take first-team training today and a further update will follow in due course.”

Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy said on the club’s official website: “Jose and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a club.

“Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic.

“On a personal level, I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged.

“He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for their contribution.”

People’s Forum celebrates  20 years of publishing excellence

The Eyewitness reporter
Hynek Media Enterprises, publishers of  People’s Forum Online and magazine will celebrate its 20 years of unbroken publishing with pomp and pageantry on Thursday, April 4, 2024, at the popular Rockview Hotel, Apapa, Lagos.
In April 2004, the company began the publishing of a maritime-based newspaper titled “Maritime Forum”.
 The quest to include other sectors of the economy in the well-packaged newspaper necessitated a name change to “National Forum” in 2006.
As the editors tried to repackage both its aesthetics and editorial contents, the name of the newspaper was changed to “The Forum” in 2007.
In 2008, the newspaper’s name was again changed to ”People’s Forum” to accommodate more segments of the day-to-day human activities.
 Since then,  the newspaper has been growing by leaps and bounds.
However, in 2020 after the COVID-19 lockdown, the format of the newspaper was changed to that of a magazine even as it went online.
By the end of March, this year, it would be 20 years that Hynek Media Enterprises has been publishing and disseminating maritime and general news to the reading public.
 The company intends to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this unbroken publishing.
As part of the anniversary, a national business summit with the theme “Business Transactions and Rising Costs: The Way Out” will hold along with the conferment of the prestigious People’s Forum-powered National Evergreen Merit Awards (NEMMA) to 20 distinguished individuals and 20 corporate bodies that are weathering the storm and contributing immensely to Nigeria’s economic development.
Dignitaries from all walks of life from within and outside the shores of the country are expected to grace the grand occasion.

Excitement as Tantita boss lifts Warri entertainment industry

The Eyewitness Reporter 

Chief Kestin Pondi, the Managing Director of Tantita Security Services Ltd has fulfilled his promise made to a bassist, Mr Simeon Djagbo in Warri about a month ago.

According to reliable sources, the Tantita managing director made the promise to give Djagbo a house at a concert in Warri tagged “RATATA FIESTA, THE JAMBOREE EDITION”, held at Dy Events Place and Lounge by TJ HAYS.

He said that the concert saw a lot of top-notch personalities who gathered to celebrate the unprecedented event.

“The bungalow which contains a 3-bedroom flat, self-contained with a bed-sitter was presented to the beneficiary in the Oil City of Warri.

“Djagbo has no fingers but is a top-notch player of the guitar, and how he does it remains very heartbreaking.

“He was playing the guitar with so much passion and enthusiasm on stage, and a lot of people were attracted to him including the MD of Tantita Security who could not withhold his excitement and was triggered by his humanistic morale to promise him a house, the source said.

The source pointed out that the most interesting part was that  Pondi announced a 6-month duration at the concert to fulfill the promise but the fulfillment came far earlier than expected; just a month from the day he publicly made the promise.

The source noted that a lot of accolades had been showered on GOC Tompolo and the Pondis for their endless show of love to the needy and their beautiful heart of humanity towards those around them daily.

TJ Hays who is popularly known as King Ratata could not hide his happiness as he continued to pray for Chief Pondi and Tompolo for their immense support to the entertainment industry in general; cutting across musicians, comedians, traditional story-tellers, actors, and actresses.

Another highlight at the concert was when High Chief Pondi also gifted the RATATA MASTER 10 thousand US dollars cash to encourage him for his efforts to make his marks in entertainment.

“Their good heart of giving is immeasurable. I am happy they say it and they do it, it’s not easy to make promises and fulfill them but these gentlemen make promises and they came to pass, I’m loyal to these great men”, TJ HAYS said in happiness.

Djagbo in video clips that surfaced on the internet was seen dancing, jubilating, and thanking God for the last-minute miracle in 2023, as they would always say, “It’s not finished until it’s finished, I pray and God Almighty answers my prayers.”

He prayed God Almighty would bless TJ, and Hays for finding him worthy to be among his band, he’s my king as always.

“Tompolo and Chief Pondi are the champions. I don’t have much to say but all I know is that God Almighty will guard and protect them in all their endeavors in life because you are my superheroes”, he added.
