Moses, who signed for the Staffordshire outfit on a season-long deal last month, has had a frustrating last couple of years as a bit part player for his parent club and then Liverpool on loan. He has rapidly emerged as a key man for Stoke, though, and his threat was in particular evidence as he helped them to Monday’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League win over Newcastle, in which they registered their first home points of season. Stoke boss Mark Hughes hopes “man on a mission” Victor Moses can keep up the impressive form the winger has shown since joining the Potters on loan from Chelsea. Press Association The 23-year-old Nigeria international provided the cross from which Peter Crouch headed in the 15th-minute winner, and caused constant problems for the visitors. Hughes, whose side moved up from 17th to 11th in the table with the victory, said of Moses: “He’s been exceptional since he came to the club. “We are really delighted with what he has produced. He is a man on a mission I would suggest, because he hasn’t had a lot of football in the last two years or so. “He just wants to play, and every time he gets into those positions, in the wide areas, you always sense something is going to happen. “It was the same again (against Newcastle). We are delighted for him, and I think if he continues in the same vein, then he’ll have a good season and so will we.” Hughes also had praise for Crouch – now with three goals in all competitions this season – and Marko Arnautovic, who hit the post in the second half and put in what the manager felt was his best performance of the campaign so far. Arnautovic came on in the 23rd minute of the contest, Mame Biram Diouf having to be withdrawn due to an injury. And regarding Diouf’s condition, Hughes said: “It looks like he might have a slight hamstring strain. “Obviously he stopped and he came off immediately, which is the right thing to do. So we are hopeful it is not going to be too serious.”
Residents of Georgetown can now pay rates and taxes via the Mobile Money Guyana (MMG) app.This was made possible through a collaboration between the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) and GTT, and the initiative was officially launched on Tuesday.Information Technology (IT) Manager attached to M&CC, Adunni Christian said the action was taken to enable persons to pay monies owed to the M&CC through MMG. Christian noted that while the M&CC has begun with the payments of rates and taxes, in the near future the Council would move towards other types of payments that could be made via MMG.GTT MMG Specialist Kester Abrams“All customers need to know or understand is their account number which can be found on a receipt or the demand notice. That account number, when you make payments to Mobile Money from outside, it will allow us at M&CC to see where you are attaching these payments to,” he explained.According to Christian, one of the main reasons the MMG platform was chosen was the fact it was known to be a safe application for transacting business. He further explained that “there is no issue in terms of your security or other people accessing your account because as you know, the Mobile Money platform has been proven to be quite secure in the past.”Christian also pointed out that persons desirous of uplifting their payment receipt after completing their transaction can do so by visiting the M&CC.Specialist-in-Charge of MMG at GTT, Kester Abrams said the company was pleased to be able to further expand its services to the residents of Georgetown.
