first_imgOne of the commissioners of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), Aba Hamilton-Dolo, has urged young people in the country to focus on engaging into positive things and creating means for opportunity throughout Liberia.Speaking at a one-day National Youth Leadership Conference on Wednesday June 4, at the Monrovia Christian Fellowship in Sinkor, Mrs. Dolo said there are lots of young people in the country but lack of opportunity hampers their live.Serving as one of the speakers of the conference, Madam Dolo said it is important for the youth to engage in creating avenues and exploring their dream especially the issue of education that gives one empowerment for life.“We are the reflection of our society, what we do today is what continues in the future. Let us be the change that Liberia needs, this will help us to be good representations of our country both here and out there. We need to have the mind set for our self and say that we can bring the necessary change that Liberia needs,” she noted.According to the speaker, young people should focus on creating the atmosphere for learning that will bring better living condition.She also warned those involved in corruption especially in the classroom for grades as the means of obtaining passing marks to deviate from such habit if they want to succeed.Also serving as one of the panelists, Joseph Boakai Jr., urged young people to be prepared for everything in life but with emphasis on the global market that will brighten the life of anyone prepared.According to Mr. Boakai, there were lots of distractions in the lives of young people most especially in the classroom and the social aspect all over the country, thus creating setback for many of them in the society.Mr. Boakai said, “Responsible leadership will only come to responsible people and those that are prepared.

We are taking too many risks (Conclusion)

first_imgDear Editor,Our population size relative to our resources is adequate enough to add in a responsible way the improved standard of living that is being pursued. Hence the call for added focus on debt reduction and the utilisation of wind and solar energy as our primary energy sources. This is very achievable with what has been developed thus far in the oil industry and now is the time to say we have enough to responsibly accomplish our long-term goals.Now, everyone wants to make enough money to go out and have a good time while also taking care of their family or families. This doesn’t mean that the next guy has to suffer for this to happen. Whether the next guy is a fisherman, cane cutter or the man up the road who is trying to take care of his own village. We do not have to take his living away to make ours happen. There is enough good land and a multitude of markets that we can support to make a good clean and honest living without putting everybody’s house at risk.We know a bad deal and a crook when we see one and there is no reason to encourage such bad behaviour and detrimental actions just to make another dollar. Being honest to one’s self is very important and there is no reason for us to continue drilling new wells if we can’t understand what is currently going on with the current costs being presented and the costs being avoided in the agreement. This is not supposed to be a cat and mouse game when you have “GOOD” business partners and suppliers. However, it is prudent to “trust but verify”. Stop spending what the nation does not have and check closely for what the problem is and might be, because if a lot of wells continue to be drilled there is increased opportunity to hide artificial costs and “rip us all off”. Remember there are instances where less is more. Many people are taking their personal time, free of charge, to show clearly that there is a problem. Stop, and go and check what is really going on is all that is being asked.There was a lot of research done to show everyone that we are dealing with an industry where the players like to take the upper hand and it’s not always done honestly. There is no reason to be naive. We are all from Guyana and common sense should tell us that this is what you do in such a situation. If there are continued requests to close our eyes to this important matter, people will start to question if there is corruption. Be honest about it, so the level of integrity of those involved is not furthered questioned. This is Guyana and people are not stupid, even though some may appear to want them to be. Spending more time in our people’s reality is a great way to better understand how annoyed people are getting with the perceived incompetence and bribery.When people are frustrated with the corruption and incompetence, they look elsewhere for guidance. At the end of the day, this is why different parties get an opportunity to govern and lead.Regards,Jamil Changleelast_img read more

ECD schools’ regional PTA resuscitated

first_imgThe Education Department in Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) has resuscitated the regional Parent Teachers Association (PTA). The Association had previously aided in the effective execution of issues and concerns facing schools on both the East Coast and East Bank; however, some five years ago it became dormant.The newly elected executive body of the East Coast PTAActing Regional Education Officer, Tiffany Harvey, welcomed the resuscitation of the East Coast body after elections were held at the Department’s boardroom in Triumph, East Coast Demerara. The regional officer has since noted that the schools involved have all expressed excitement over the initiative, stressing that she firmly believes it will help in creating and crafting a culture where every stakeholder feels included in what is taking place. This, she said, will aid in reducing and or eradicating several difficulties and challenges confronting a number of schools, as the body would be able to inculcate various methods and systems, thus supporting the respective schools in enhancing its environment for all to learn.The Education Department head stressed that her intentions for both the East Coast and the East Bank are they would remain very active as she foresees the PTAs playing a critically important role in advancing education within the region. She disclosed that after the East Bank’s election, there would be another election to elect a regional body.Harvey further disclosed that various stakeholders would be invited to forge relationships with the Department as they seek to advance the work and objectives of the Department. “We want to engage the Police, we want to engage the hospitals, we want to engage as many stakeholders as possible to enhance the delivery of education in Region Four and I firmly believe that with the PTA body on board we can get it done,” Harvey declared.Those elected to serve are Charles Greaves of St Pius Primary as President; Vice President, Deonarine Dutt of LBI Primary; along with the other committee members from schools such as LBI Secondary, Presidents Collage, Golden Grove Secondary, among others.last_img read more

Private sector disappointed over non-reduction of excise tax on fuel

first_img…calls for mechanisms to facilitate green growthExecutive Director of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), Richard Rambarran, has said that although the private sector is happy to see some money coming back in the hands of the consumers, it is extremely disappointed that the Government has made no move to remove or reduce the excise tax on fuel.GCCI Executive Director, Richard RambarranHe made this pronouncement following Finance Minister Winston Jordan’s presentation of the 2019 National Budget in the National Assembly on Monday.“I am very happy money has been placed back in the hands of the consumers and private sector; however, what is very worrying is that the excise tax on fuel and the nature and cost structure of the fuel remain the same, which is something the private sector certainly could have done with a reduction in,” he said.He explained that in 2018 fuel has had a rehabilitating effect on the private sector because of its multipurpose. He noted that it is not only used in manufacturing, but in every other aspect of business.“It is used in distribution, it is used in just about every single aspect of the production and distribution line; and as such, there should be something, or there should have been something, which addresses fuel costs,” he noted.Rambarran further related that the Government needs to be more serious about the development of a green economy, and not just talk about developing a green economy. He identified the lack of advancement in this area despite the Government repeatedly talking about the Green State Development.“If we are going to talk about green economy and renewable energy and all of that thing, we (the private sector) have been saying for some time that the private sector is very advanced in this regard. And the private sector has been saying that we need to have mechanisms in place where we can do grid tie and getting rebates etc for when you put in place your solar power and renewable energy, for us to be able to get something where we channel energy back to the grid. We see once again another year has passed and nothing along this line,” Rambarran pointed out.He noted that the current budget presented need to be taken within the current context of Guyana since, according to the 2018 numbers, there has been minimal growth in a number of sectors and sub-sectors, as well as contraction in a few as well. However, he said that they are pleased with the measures identified, which would ultimately put money back into the hands of the consumers as well as the private sector.On the issue of tax reduction, he explained that the private sector are somewhat pleased with some of the reduction identified, but reminded that they are not across-the-board.“The Chamber of Commerce specifically is very happy that we have gotten some of our requests granted to us from our budget document. We would have met with the Minister of Finance during consultation period and he provided us with the opportunity to air our views. Specifically, we are looking at things like pesticides, limestone, toxic chemicals, and even the aviation industry. We were looking at fuel, but those which were granted were aviation industry pesticides limestone, and those were some we bargained for. We have an entire list we submitted for other things, and we see those coming out in other sectors indirectly for example infrastructure regarding farm to market road etc,” the GCCI Executive said.Guyana’s private sector bodies have been calling on Government to cushion the effect of the excise tax on fuel prices, which affects every aspect of their businesses. Leading that call was the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA) who, during its budget consultation meeting with Minister Jordan, also called for better roads and incentives for the renewable energy.last_img read more

Uganda exerts revenge on Starlets in Kigali

first_img0Shares0000Kenya and Uganda captains pose with the match officials before their CECAFA Women’s Championship opening match in Kigali on July 19, 2018. PHOTO/FUFANAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 19- Lilian Mutuuzo’s seventh minute goal was all Uganda’s Crested Cranes needed to exert revenge against Kenya’s Harambee Starlets in their opening game of the CECAFA Women’s Championship at the Stade de Kigali in Nyamirambo on Thursday evening.Starlets had beaten the Ugandans in three of their last four meetings including a 4-0 spanking in both a friendly and the 2016 CECAFA Women’s Championship, but the Crested Cranes finally got one over their neighbors. Kenya had also beaten the Ugandans by a solitary goal in the CAF African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) qualifier in May and this was perfect revenge.After going ahead early in the game, the Ugandans had more chances to score with Grace Aluka’s 33rd minute freekick going against the crossbar.Starlets also had chances to score, the closest being a Mwanahalima Adam effort that went against the bar after 18 minutes.Starlets who finished second after losing 2-1 to Tanzania in the final back in 2016 now have to win their next match on Saturday when they take on the reigning champions at the Stade de Kigali.Another loss will dampen their hopes of clinching the title.This year’s Championship is being played in a round robin format. After facing Tanzania, David Ouma’s girls will take on Ethiopia on Wednesday before winding down their campaign with a tie against hosts Rwanda on Friday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Danny Murphy says Fulham can play with freedom in play-off final

first_imgDanny Murphy believes Aston Villa face more pressure going into Saturday’s Championship play-off final, while Fulham can enjoy the moment.The annual showpiece at Wembley could be worth up to £280million for the victors, making it the most lucrative prize in world football.talkSPORT will be live from Wembley to bring you commentary of the game at 5pm. And Murphy, who played 169 games for Fulham, thinks their opponents are more desperate for promotion to the Premier League.He told talkSPORT: “I think Villa need it more.“There’s more pressure on Villa because of the outlay that they’ve put out and the wages they’re paying.“Fulham can go into this with a little more freedom – the club’s not going to be in financial trouble if they don’t go up.” The Whites finished third in the Championship after stringing together 23 games without defeat. They overcame Derby in the semi-final, coming from 1-0 down in the first leg to win 2-1 on aggregate.Murphy added: “I think Fulham, playing the way they do, are going to be difficult to stop.“Especially now they’ve got over that tricky 1-0 with Derby. To come back from that, being a goal down, I think that’s the hardest bit.“Now they can just go and enjoy it.”Villa, who beat Middlesbrough 1-0 over two legs in their semi-final, carry a lot more experience into the big game with the likes of John Terry and Glen Whelan in the squad.The former Fulham man suggested the large Wembley pitch may suit the Whites, but the contrast between youth and experience will be intriguing.And while much of the pre-game talk has centred on Fulham’s teenage-sensation Ryan Sessegnon, Murphy believes Steve Bruce should focus his attention on another talent.He continued: “When Tom Cairney’s at it, Fulham really are creative and a good side to watch.“He’s the one for Villa that I think they need to stop.“But Villa have got talent of their own. It’s going to be a good game.” 1last_img read more
