NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Operations, Ambassador Francesca Tardioli, and the Republic of Djibouti’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, H. E Mahmoud Ali Youssouf, signed the agreement.The establishment of a liaison office will facilitate greater operational, logistical and administrative coordination. It will also provide the basis for further dialogue between NATO and the Republic of Djibouti on potential partnership activities in areas of common and mutual interest, including the maritime dimension. Djibouti is an active regional partner in the international efforts to prevent and deter the threat of piracy. It is also a strong supporter of the NATO Ocean Shield operation.Ocean Shield was first established in August 2009 and has been subsequently renewed. The current mandate will run until the end of 2016. Since the launch of Ocean Shield, NATO has been working in close cooperation with other actors in the region including the European Union’s Operation Atalanta, the US Combined Task Force 151 and individual country contributors.

Ahead the 2020/21 season of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), indications are that the clubs are determined to substantially comply with the provisions of the club Licensing Requirements.The League Management Company (LMC) had on August 6 sent a memo to all the 20 clubs with the Confederation of African Football (CAF)/ Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Licensing requirements.The LMC had while noting that the Federal Government was yet to lift the ban on football activities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, urged the clubs to begin to put in place those requirements that can be achieved within the ambit of the relaxation of the lockdown. A number of the clubs’ leaders who spoke to www.npfl.ng affirmed that they are already working to meet the requirements especially in the area of stadium facilities, safety, security, medical, technical and financial.The Team Manager of Rangers International, Amobi Ezeaku, lamented the negative impact of the global pandemic on the club’s preseason program but noted that the club has made appreciable progress in getting certifications from health, security, safety and environment agencies.Isaac Danladi, the Chairman of Nasarawa United also rued the effects of the pandemic on the overall health of football activities and declared that by way of complying with Licensing requirements, the club is in good stead.Sources at Plateau United and Kano Pillars told npfl.ng that their respective state governments have made funds available for upgrade of facilities and meeting other financial obligations.Assessing the impact of the pandemic on Rangers activities, Ezeaku said, “it has really twisted our preseason plans. It has been difficult, from the loss of our player in a fatal accident to having players individually train at home.“In as much as the Technical Crew gave the players daily programmes, we understand the importance of bonding together as a team and the gains of such. We hope that soon the green light for the players to return would be given, the tests conducted and normalcy returned”.Nasarawa United Chairman, Danladi also spoke of the challenges the club has been facing due to the pandemic, and noted that, “the crises has greatly affected our preseason arrangements basically in the area of physical training and football activities which have been suspended by the NFF and the Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force on the pandemic.“However in the area of other preparations such as administration and day to day running of the club, it is work in progress. Management and the technical crew have been working assiduously to ensure effective and efficient preparation for the forthcoming 2020/2021 NPFL season. In a nutshell, aside from our inability to resume on the field training, we are planning slowly, quietly but surely preparatory to the new season”Ezeaku was more specific on the efforts Rangers made to meet Licensing requirements. In his words, “Rangers has always been at the forefront of ensuring that Club Licensing requirements are met. Already we have called upon the Fire Service for inspections and recommendations as well as being issued a fire safety certificate.“We have also made contact with the State Police Command for security analysis and review and issuance of Police Safety Certificate. Same has been done with the Enugu State Waste Management Authority and the State Emergency Management Agency”, a confident Ezeaku revealed to www.npfl.ngOn his part, Danladi revealed that two committees set up to provide a roadmap to meeting various aspects of Licensing requirements have submitted their reports.“Nasarawa United has made appreciable efforts in ensuring that we meet the club licensing requirements in line with CAF, NFF and LMC regulations. As a bold step towards this objective, the Club Management recently set up two very important committees, namely, Finance/ Budget proposal committee and Club Licensing Regulations committee.“The committees have submitted their reports and same have been summarized and forwarded to Government for further necessary action with great expectations”.Danladi also said that on the aspect of medical requirements, the club have since acquired an ambulance fitted with state of the art medical facilities.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
EA Sports has already released some player ratings, mostly rookies. And throughout the week they slowly (emphasis on slowly) revealed the players who were 99 overall.MORE: Madden 21 release date & everything else you need to knowWho are the 99 overall players in Madden 21?The 99 overall players in Madden 21 at launch are Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Donald, Stephon Gilmore, Christian McCaffrey and Michael Thomas. The Chiefs quarterback getting 99 overall shouldn’t be a surprise. He was also 99 overall in Madden 20 as the cover athlete, and is arguably one of the most talented quarterbacks we’ve ever seen play.Rams pass rusher Donald is another player who was 99 overall during the launch of Madden 20. His pass rush skills make him such an elite player, and he’s well deserving of back-to-back 99 overall ratings.Patriots cornerback Gilmore is somewhat of a surprise, but he’s definitely deserving of being the best cornerback in Madden. He was a shutdown corner for New England in 2019, and should continue to dominate receivers in the virtual world.Panthers running back McCaffrey became the youngest player ever to reach 99 overall in Madden 20. He’s the complete dual threat running back as he’s a dominant pass catcher out of the backfield while also being a force as a runner. His versatility is what helps improve his overall rating into 99.Saints receiver Michael Thomas wasn’t part of the leaked 99 club, but after being a dominant wideout since entering the NFL it isn’t a surprise to see him on this list. Last year, the only 99 wide receiver was DeAndre Hopkins.In addition to being honored with a 99 overall rating, players were also gifted with swag from EA Sports. Reaching 99 overall in “Madden NFL 21″ is an honor, and that honor will only go to five special players at launch.A 99 overall player shows you’re not only one of the best at your position, but one of the best players in the entire league. Madden ratings only go up to 99, so you have to have a special all-around talent for your overall rating to get that high. So it’s no wonder why only four players hit that mark in the 2020 video game.
