Arsene Wenger took charge of his final home match on Sunday.

 

 

The long-serving boss was given a guard of honour ahead of the Gunners’ 5-0 win over Burnley at the Emirates, which secured them sixth spot in the league.

 

Wenger, 68, ended his day with a direct address to the still-packed home stands at the Emirates, after receiving a long chorus of “One Arsene Wenger” from the club’s supporters, who were each given a ‘Merci Arsene’ t-shirt.

 

 

“Thank you every much. Before I start, I just want to wish my fellow manager Alex Ferguson well. Thank you for having me for such a long time. I know that’s not easy.

 

“But above all, I am like you, I am an Arsenal fan. This is more than just watching football, it’s a way of life. It’s caring about the beautiful game, about the values we cherish, and as well, that something that goes for all our bodies in every cell of our bodies. We care, we worry, we are desperate, but when you come here, the theatre of dreams we realise what it means.

 

“I would like as well to thank everyone at the club who makes it so special, I would invite you, really push, support these players and the staff who remains behind me, these group of players has a special quality. Not only on the pitch, but off the pitch. Please, as you follow this team, support them next season because they deserve it.

 

“I would like to finish in one simple sentence: I will miss you. Thank you all for having such an important part of my life, thank you all, well done, bye bye,” Wenger said.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has disowned a recruitment advertisement currently trending on the social media.

 

 

The advertisement, set in NNPC’s corporate colour with its logo, invited candidates with background in Sciences, Engineering, Business/Finance, Social Sciences, Arts/Humanities as well as Medical/Health Sciences to apply, giving required educational attainments of prospects to include: Master’s degree, Bachelor’s degree, Higher National Diploma (HND) and National Diploma.

 

Ndu Ughamadu, the general manager, public affairs of the corporation, describing the advertisement as false, called on unsuspecting members of the public to be wary of the scam.

 

 

The corporation stated that it would, as usual, advertise vacancies in the corporation through the national dailies when necessary.

 

“NNPC advise members of the public to disregard any announcement of recruitment or invitation to recruitment interview appearing in the social media.

 

“We are not carrying out any recruitment exercise now.

 

 

“Job seekers should note the antics of scammers who deploy such communication strategies as text messages, vacancy announcements on social media platforms as well as forged letters inviting job seekers for non-existing job interviews with a view to extorting money from them.

 

 

“NNPC cautions that any applicant who entertained such invitations would have himself or herself to blame, encouraging those who had already fallen victims to volunteer information to the law enforcement agencies,” he said.
