Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum believes his side deserve a trophy after they put “everything” into this season.

The Reds narrowly missed out on the Premier League title despite earning 97 points – the highest points tally of any team to finish second in the English top flight – with Manchester City earning just one point more to secure back-to-back titles.

Despite their title disappointment Liverpool can still win a trophy after reaching the Champions League final for the second successive season, where they will take on Tottenham in Madrid on June 1.

Wijnaldum, who scored twice in Liverpool’s dramatic 4-0 semi-final second leg win over Barcelona, believes victory over Spurs would be the perfect way to end the season given their efforts throughout the year.

“If you look back when you’re on vacation on this season, I think everyone will realise we had a really good season, a wonderful season,” Wijnaldum told Liverpool’s website.

“Ninety-seven points, we’d normally be champion with. But in this case, City had one point more and they turned champions. Overall, I think we had a good season and now is the challenge to finish with a title to make the season complete.

“It would be really sad if we finish the season without a title, especially because I think we were quite consistent this season and we did so good.

“I think this season deserves one. We put everything in, everything we could.

“If you look at the games where we still managed to win – Everton at home, Fulham away, Newcastle away and I probably forget five or six more difficult games that we still managed to win. We gave it our all but in the end it wasn’t enough.

“The last couple of games were basically games where we could only win and look at what City were doing. They won also, so fair enough that they are champions.

“But now we have a game that we can control, so we have to bring that to a good end.

“It would be really special, especially because this season deserves an end like that. We’re going to do everything to bring it to that end, but it’s going to be tough.

Atiku Raises Loud Alarm On Prevalence Of Poverty In Nigeria

<

div>

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday said the recent report by the United Nations Development Programme, published on July 11, which said that over 98 million Nigerians were living in multi-dimensional poverty, was frightening.

He said the report indicated that poverty had become the fastest growing venture in Nigeria over the last four years.

The former Vice President, in a statement by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, said there was an urgent and compelling need for institutions of the Nigerian state to understand that it was an appalling dereliction of duty to stand idly by and allow misery multiply in the populace.

According to him, this was no longer a grassroots problem.

“The failure of our economy over the last four years affects everyone from top to bottom. Four years ago, Aliko Dangote, Nigeria’s richest man, was worth $25bn. However, his net worth in 2019 is less than half that. He joined thousands of industrialists whose wealth and their ability to produce, had eroded in recent years, and continue to do so.
“With the National Bureau of Statistics reporting a net job loss of over six million since 2015, we see that if industrialists have their wealth eroding, it affects their ability to create opportunities, which means that the trickle-down effect gradually dries.”
Atiku stated that the greatest national security threat Nigeria faced in 2019 was not Boko Haram/ISWAP or bandits but the ‘creation of the largest wave of poverty in human history in the country.’
He warned that the world was noticing, hence Foreign Direct Investment was shifting from Nigeria to Ghana, making Ghana the top recipient of FDI in West Africa in the last year.

He said, “And in the wake of this report by the UNDP, we are greeted with nonchalance by those who led us into this crisis. It is as though they think that as long as they and their families are not amongst those 98 million extremely poor Nigerians, things can carry on as before.

“But that cannot be allowed to be the case. Those who have the ability, including the Council of State, all former leaders, elder-statesmen, and especially the other arms of government, must begin to collaborate for solutions before the number increases from 98 million to all 198 million Nigerians.

“We must remember that we are stakeholders in the Nigerian project; stakeholders who must speak up for those 98 million people who are losing their voices to poverty.”
