The management of Novafone has refuted what it describes as a false and unverifiable story published in a local newspaper against Novafone. A press release said yesterday that a local newspaper reported that the company was reducing its employees because of a crisis.The release said the report was not verified with Novafone’s management, which could have provided clarity on the matter.Novafone has called on journalists to endeavor to ascertain facts with the management before publication, according to the release.“In the spirit of finding out the facts,” the release said, “we are open to giving clearances to media houses to do their own due diligence and investigation to establish the truth and facts about the allegation.”The release admitted that Novafone is currently going through a restructuring process, which has led to some positions, like Sales Agent, in the company becoming redundant. “Therefore, some employees have indeed received letters about their positions becoming redundant, consistent with Liberia’s Labor Laws. All employees of the company are aware of this restructuring exercise,” the release said.While Novafone and its owners reserve their right to follow the legal processes to get justice in such events, the company said, “it encourages” the media to refrain from what it described as defaming the company’s reputation.The management and the committed employees of Novafone will continue to remain focused and steadfast in delivering full quality services to its valued customers, the release said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
As a team, Los Osos (18-11) shot 54 percent from the field – including 42 percent from 3-point range – to give the Baseline League its first victory of the postseason. Three league teams were swept out of the playoffs in Wednesday’s wild-card round. “Our goal was to have fun, because when we go out and have fun, we can’t be stopped,” Richard said. “I feel like we’re on a mission, like we’re going to really go far in this tournament.” Los Osos, the No. 15 seed, will advance to play either wild-card entry Beverly Hills or No. 1 seed Redondo Union on Tuesday at a yet-to-be-determined site. Diamond Bar (16-12) won’t get that chance. After finishing third in the Sierra League, the Brahmas entered the postseason hoping to pull an upset or two and see where it got them. “If we can get our bigs involved in the game by giving them touches, it opens everything else up for us,” Smith said. Six-foot-9 seniors Jordan Richard and Cameron Khoury combined for 29 points and 27 rebounds to dominate the inside game and Mide Osifeso scored a game-high 20 points mostly on the strength of his outside shooting. “We were our own worst enemies at times,” coach J.T. Cameron said. “We couldn’t get our of our own way.” The Brahmas aimed to stop Los Osos from getting dribble penetration, and found occasional success. But even when they played good defense, an untimely turnover seemed to doom their efforts. Trailing by 11 at the half and by 20 just seconds into the fourth quarter, Diamond Bar still felt it had a chance until leading scorer Victor Lee got his fifth foul with 5:06 remaining. Lee led the Brahmas with 19 points, with Elijah York (17 points) and Alan Jones (16) also reaching double digits. DIVISION I-A Chino Hills 76, Riverside J.W. North 62 Cory Harkey scored 27 points with 13 rebounds as Chino Hills proved to be the better Huskies (22-6) against visiting J.W. North. Nick Turner scored 24 points for Chino Hills, which advances to the second round for the second year in a row. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
