first_imgRep. Francis Dopoh: ““The importance of these fiscal outturn reports is to give the lawmakers an understanding…”River Gee County District #3 Representative Francis Dopoh II, on Thursday, January 31, 2019, during the 7th day sitting, walked out of the session in protest against the “majority members” of the House of Representatives’ stalling the exercise of check and balances over the Executive Branch of Government on the collection and expenditure of public funds.The House of Representatives on Thursday, January 31, 2019, voted for Rep. Dopoh’s letter to be discussed in an executive (secret) session, a decision which triggered the River Gee lawmaker to walk out, shouting over his head that “violations, no check and balances, lead to corruption.”In his letter, Rep. Dopoh said Section 7 of the 2018/2019 Budget law provides that each ministry and agency should submit a quarterly spending report 15 days at most at the end of each quarter.“Since the passage of this budget, we are yet to receive reports from the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning,” Rep. Dopoh wrote.“Mr. Speaker, Deputy Speaker… the importance of these financial reports are intended to give this Honorable House an understanding of the performances of various budget lines and to help us guide the direction of the government’s fiscal stance.”He added, “It beats my imagination that in a country where the budget is a cash-based balance, the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) is over performing in revenue generation, while expenditure lines are under-performing as being reported. In such a case, it is probable that there is ongoing-off-budget spending.”Following the walk-out, Rep. Dopoh told journalists that the Ministry of Finance is undermining the government and the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PADP), and it can only be achieved if the government is transparent and accountable in the funds collected and expended; if not, the country will be doomed.“The executive branch is in violation of the 2018/2019 budget and it creates a dark cloud over the revenue generation and the expenditure, in which the President revealed that the LRA had collected about US$480 million in 2018 and the government has expended US$502 million,” Rep. Dopoh said.“We want to see the budget quarterly report of the expenditure. There are a lot of complaints of some allotments, which have not been paid, so probably certain ministries or agencies are prioritized or are off-budget spending,” he said.Rep. Dopoh also accused the President of being in violation of the Budget Law, specifically Section 7b, which says, “Upon failure of a spending entity to present timely (quarterly) report to the Legislature, the President is directed to take appropriate actions that may lead to the loss of pay for the head of the defaulting entity.”Also, Rep. Dopoh told journalists that the Ministry of Finance is in another violation for its failure to furnish the Legislature on the funds in the Consolidated Fund Account, where all tax revenues and other fees collected are kept.The River Gee lawmaker said Section 4 of the 2018/2019 Budget Law compels the Ministry of Finance to, not later than 45 calendar days after the end of the first quarter of the current fiscal year, submit a reconciled statement of the Consolidated Fund Account to the House of Representatives and the Senate for previous Budget Year.Meanwhile, this is the second time Rep. Dopoh’s letter has experienced such a “secretive fate” concerning the check and balances of the executive branch to make a quarterly report over the funds collected and expended.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgWynfred RussellBy Wynfred RussellLiberia is at a crossroads. Sixteen years have gone since the war, and the nation is still developmentally stagnant. We need a leader with a bold vision and bright ideas; the country has been crippled by self-interest, greed, and division.If I were president, I would strive to accomplish five major things. Firstly, I would stabilize the economy and tax system, and create jobs; secondly, I would spend 20 percent of the GDP on education and health; thirdly, I would ensure that everyone has equal and fair treatment under the law; fourthly, I would invest heavily in agriculture and make Liberia food sufficient; lastly, I would protect our environment, wildlife, and ecologically important forest systems.Most every Liberian knows the problem, but we lack true leaders at the top who can solve our problems. We continuously elect bad leaders. So, what does that say about us, the people? We reflect the leaders we choose at the Executive Mansion and Capitol Hill. The elephant in the room is corruption; its mother is an injustice. All the other challenges we have are children of this couple. So, if I were the president of my country, I would…AgricultureUnder an agriculture sector transformation, my administration would promote the sector through a sustained, research-oriented, technological, market-driven and private sector-led revolution. It will revitalize rural communities, create strong linkages with other sectors and emphatically reposition the sector in the national economy to focus on the production of high-value commodities and contribute to national food security.HealthMy government will invest substantially in equipping primary health facilities all over the country. The Ministry of Health will remain the steward in the provision of quality health care to the nation, but social and economic policies will be strengthened. The overall development of Liberia will be judged by the quality of its population’s health, how equitably health services is distributed across the social spectrum, and the degree of protection provided to the disadvantaged because of poor health. My health policy will encompass all the social determinants which impact the health of the nation. The provision of health services will not be the mere curing of the sick but also promoting a healthy lifestyle to prevent diseases.EducationI will improve schools and tie teachers’ salaries increase to student performance. I will ensure every child is afforded the opportunity to reach his or her full potential by improving graduation rates, increasing retention, reaching rural student population and at-risk female students.Not everyone has to go to college! My government will provide options for those who want to open a trade shop or a small business. What if we didn’t force students who know that their talents reside outside of formal academics to take three years of high school classes that they found boring and useless? What if we allowed them to train in and explore vocations, they found fascinating and in which they were gifted? What if we made these students feel valued and like they had a place in the education realm?CorruptionI would ensure that all public and civil servants declare their financial and fixed assets before taking office. We celebrate the rich without asking how they got rich. Corruption is one of our greatest problems, so anyone willing to serve in any official capacity in my administration would be compelled to declare his or her assets but also to give a statement of earnings/income which MUST be verified before he or she is nominated or appointed to any position. Furthermore, any suspicion of corruption will be thoroughly investigated, and anyone found guilty will be prosecuted; there will be a zero-tolerance for impunity.Public Fund WastagesI would ensure that every government official from the county-level to the national-level patronizes public schools, hospitals, and other similar institutions. Every Liberian, including the president, will fly economy class. Even if a government can afford private schools, hospitals or chartered jets, my administration will discourage them from doing so until they leave office (including myself). The alternative will be to resign. At most, I can ensure that the public school being attended by most children of the staff is highly secured with the necessary personnel and technological tools. In Liberia, today, ministers and legislators move around in fleets of cars, in many instances within siren-wielding convoys with police officers as bodyguards. That practice will not be allowed under no condition.Governance StructureI would propose legislation to reduce the presidential term from six years to four years (two terms only) and decrease in the Senate term to six years and the House to four years, respectively. In other words, I would make the center less attractive than it is now so that all the various parts of the country will stop fighting to get a government position because the action will now be in their respective home counties.I would set the counties, cities, and districts free from the national government, and meddling from legislators. Each superintendent, city mayor, and district commissioner will be elected. I would ensure that power is closer to each citizen than it is today. Resources from each county will be spent there and a fraction (say 10% tentatively) will be remitted to Monrovia to run the central government.My administration will support legislation to eliminate the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs & Tourism and create a standalone Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Wildlife. We will eliminate the Ministry of Youth and Sports, and transfer its services to the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Gender, and Ministry of Health.Law & OrderI will ensure that all citizens answer to just one law – the law of the Republic of Liberia, enacted by the Congress and signed by me. There will be zero-tolerance for anyone who violates the law of the land, including me as your president. While I would respect past leaders, the clergy, traditional leaders, and elders, I would not hesitate to prosecute officials ensuring speedy, fair and balanced justice dispensation in all cases.Law EnforcementSince the withdrawal of the United Nations peacekeeping force, the security of the country has become tenuous. The armed robberies scare investors away and cause citizens to live in constant fear. This is how I would tackle the security issues: the police, which is the primary custodian of security, would be trained, equipped, and compensated better. I realize Liberian law-enforcement officers can be useful when well-equipped and recognized. I would let them know that if anyone of them dies on duty, their children would be fully sponsored up to vocational school or college completion on the government’s dime. Their lives will be insured by a reputable insurance firm and would ensure that their country would not forget them ever.National DefenseI know this will not go across well with most people, but if I were your president, I would eliminate the Armed Forces of Liberia and replace it with a highly a trained, mobile, equipped, and technologically advanced paramilitary force subsumed within the structures of the Liberian National Police (LNP).Thorough its history, Liberia has had mainly internal conflicts; therefore, the country doesn’t need an army. The money saved will go to strengthen the LNP. Our international borders will be guarded by a robust border guard as a unit of the immigration service.Liberia Service Corps – LiberiCorpsEach person graduating from a four-year university or technical institute would be required to serve as a youth corps volunteer for one year. The emphasis would be placed on sending volunteers to a county other than where her or his parents hail. For example, if you are ‘originally’ from Bong County, you be assigned to spend a one-year voluntary service in Grand Cape Mount. This exchange would foster integration and cultural/ethnic/tribal understanding. Each volunteer will receive a living-wage government stipend.LiberiCorps program will do more than create inter-ethnic and religious harmony, it will move communities forward; it will create jobs and provide pathways to opportunity for young people entering the workforce. LiberiCorps will place thousands of young adults into intensive service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship.Tourism DevelopmentThere is a boatload of research that shows the importance of travel and tourism to national economies around the world – not just in terms of economic growth and job creation, but also as a means of enhancing social stability and community development, and preserving a country’s culture and heritage.My government will aggressively promote sustainable tourism. We will provide a supportive physical, regulatory, fiscal and social environment – one which will be conducive to local business development. We will ensure adequate infrastructure, incentives for private sector investment, job creation, easy access – including good transport connectivity and entry visa facilitation – and transparent taxation, as well as the appropriate policies,  to encourage growth in demand.Forest ManagementAt 41 percent, Liberia holds the largest remaining tract of the environmentally significant Upper Guinean Rainforest systems that once covered all West Africa. At the heart of this ecosystem lies one of Liberia’s most important forest, the Wonegizi Proposed Protected Area, which encompasses Liberia’s second-highest peak and forms a massive trans-boundary forest complex with the Ziama Biosphere Reserve, across the border in Guinea. I will establish a park in each county.As your president, my administration will work with periphery communities to co-manage protected wildlife and forests area that conserves forests for development, biodiversity, and climate objectives. We will conserve biodiversity, including forest elephants, chimpanzees, and endemic pygmy hippos. The government will devise enforceable but sensible policies to protect large areas of mature forest, safeguarding ecosystem services such as freshwater provision, flood control, pollination, cultural values and the provision of foods and medicine. We will empower communities and improve wellbeing by directly supporting local livelihoods; prevent millions of tons of carbon dioxide from reaching the atmosphere and contributing to global climate change; ensure that revenue generation and benefits to communities are dependent on performance, proving that emission reductions have been achieved through project activities.TransportationTraffic congestion due to inadequate arterial roads and trunk highway systems leaves Monrovia to a grinding halt most everyday slowing productivity and business growth. More access roads need to be built in the city and around the country, but as your president, I will propose alternatives to mitigate the challenges faced by gridlock.To this end, my administration will commission a Greenfield study to investigate the feasibility of a water taxi service to ferry commuters across the Mesurado River and its tributaries. This comes because of the metro’s robust population and the market of jobs located along the water.A few years ago, I interviewed more than 400 residents and students who lived along waterlogged communities that a water taxi service could cut their commute and result in having fewer cars on the road during the morning or evening rush hour.The water-taxi service will provide an alternative mode of transport which, if properly marketed to attract more passengers, can ease traffic congestion along the west-east route, if it were expanded to Gardnersville. Transport integration will be a signature policy of my administration.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgEU paymentOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has debunked claims made by Government that under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) leadership, Guyana received $348 billion in European Union (EU) funding between 2006 and 2013, and did not utilise these funds properly or used them where they were most needed.In fact, Jagdeo has rejected the statements as a “total falsehood”, stating that the contention being peddled that the EU paid to Guyana that huge sum of money as compensation for the 36 per cent cut in preferential market prices for sugar is far from the truth.Former PresidentBharrat JagdeoThe former Head of State pointed out that the total sum paid to Guyana was approximately $30 billion. “Indeed, the final instalment of G$5.4 billion was paid to the coalition Government in October last year. The sum of G$348.5 billion is over ten times the sum actually received by Guyana,” he said in a statement.Further, more than $30 billion was spent by the PPP/C Administration on the Skeldon Factory alone, Jagdeo said, while making a commitment to address this issue more expansively upon his return to Guyana later this week. Jagdeo is currently on a visit to New York, where he is meeting with the Guyanese Diaspora.Meanwhile, former Agriculture Minister, Dr Leslie Ramsammy also commented on the issue, labelling the Government’s statement as a blatant attempt to distort the truth.Former Agriculture Minister,Dr Leslie Ramsammy“The fact is the EU provided budgetary support to be allocated over several sectors. Sugar and infrastructure were priority areas for support. The PPP Government provided support to Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) for over $30 billion during that time, much more than the EU could have provided for sugar,” Dr Ramsammy said.The former Minister said the statement that Guyana received $348 billion was a “fantasy”.Dr Ramsammy has since called on the EU to correct what he described as “misinformation”.Last week, during the post-Cabinet press briefing, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon had said that the PPP/C received $348 billion, which was supposed to have been plugged into projects that would make GuySuCo more competitive as well as be able to explore diversification.Harmon claimed that if the money was spent on the sugar industry, Guyana would not be facing the situation of having to bail out GuySuCo to the tune of billions of dollars annually.Also last week, the EU announced the closure of its funding programme, which saw Guyana benefiting from billions in budgetary support to aid in sugar sector reform.EU Ambassador to Guyana, Jernej Videti? said while the last grant was issued in 2013, it was not released to Guyana until last year after the country failed to meet the necessary criteria required.The EU Sugar Grant was established to compensate for the 36 per cent cut in preferential market price after the World Trade Organisation (WTO) had ruled that the preferential market access violated global free trade rules.A total of 1.28 billion euros were allocated for disbursement to the sugar protocol countries benefiting from the programme to help them adapt to the new market conditions. Guyana received its first instalment in 2006.The Guyana Government has moved to downsize and diversify the sugar industry. However, this move has since attracted countrywide protest action with many, including the parliamentary Opposition and the largest sugar workers representative body, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), calling on the coalition Administration to reverse its decision.Agriculture Minister Noel Holder recently presented a “White Paper on the Future of the Sugar Industry” to the National Assembly, revealing plans to close the Enmore and Rose Hall Sugar Estates, sell the Skeldon Sugar Factory, reduce the annual production of sugar, and take on the responsibility of managing the drainage and irrigation services offered by GuySuCo.last_img read more

The Irish goalkeeper’s afternoon then got worse as Cameron Jerome intercepted his pass and placed the ball in the back of the net.Bradley Johnson smacked a left-foot shot home as the Canaries picked up where they left off in the second period and he grabbed a second just after the hour-mark.And Gary Hooper tucked two more past the luckless Forde who would have been delighted to hear the final whistle.Emile Heskey scored a goal on his debut as Bolton Wanderers came from behind to claim a 2-1 over Blackburn Rovers.Gary Bowyer’s team had taken the lead through Joshua King but strikes from 36-year-old Heskey and Darren Pratley turned things around for Neil Lennon’s men as they move up to 14th.Wigan Athletic beat Leeds United 2-0 as they gained on relegation rivals Millwall as Liam Cooper’s own goal and a James McClean strike gave them all three points at Elland Road.Sheffield Wednesday ensured there was more misery for bottom side Blackpool as Chris Maguire score from the spot to give the Owls a 1-0 victory and move themselves into 12th position.Reading couldn’t make two early goals count as Brighton and Hove Albion came back to draw 2-2 at the Amex Stadium.The Seagulls are currently managerless after Sami Hyypia’s resignation and it looked like being a long afternoon when Glenn Murray struck twice in the opening 26 minutes.But Jake Forster-Caskey and Inigo Calderon hit back to level the scores and earn themselves a share of the spoils.Middlesbrough sit in fourth spot as they dispatched Nottingham Forest 3-0 at the Riverside.George Friend netted with 53 minutes on the clock to give Aitor Karanka’s men the lead and things got worse for the Tricky Trees when Kelvin Wilson received two bookings in the space of 13 minutes, leaving them with ten men.And goals from Jelle Vossen and Grant Leadbitter completed the scoring on home soil for Boro.And in the afternoon’s other game Rotherham United came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Huddersfield Town.James Vaughan and Conor Coady had given the Terriers the lead but Jonson Clarke-Harris and Lee Frecklington ensured the Millers avoided defeat.

However, he failed to do so and literally fell on top of Gardai and was arrested at 3.15am.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client was more of a nuisance than anything else and simply could not handle drink.He had not been out for months before being arrested and drink got the better of him.Letterkenny District Court heard how Friel, 20, was now back in school and didn’t go outside his house now.Judge Paul Kelly warned Friel he was “running out of chances” and ordered him to pay €150 to St Vincent de Paul.JUDGE WARNS DRUNKEN FANAD MAN HE’S ON A SLIPPERY SLOPE was last modified: December 11th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:FanadLetterkenny District CourtShane Friellast_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL staff will have extra cash in their pockets after German supermarket chain Lidl has now decided to include Ireland in a pay rise for workers.Lidl announced last month that it would introduce the new living wage in England, Wales and Scotland which is €11.13 an hour, or €12.69 an hour in London.However, Donegal workers at seven stores across the county were excluded from receiving the increase. They are currently paid around €9.77 per hour.Lidl said this was due to the way its business was organised across IrelandNow it has done a dramatic U-turn and workers in Donegal will now receive the living wage.Susan Fitzgerald of Unite The Unite said: “This is a very significant victory for Lidl workers, our members and Unite, who led the campaign to demand equal pay for workers. “We are particularly pleased that Lidl’s adoption of the Living Wage will extend to their workforce in the Republic of Ireland.“This announcement means other retail chains are now ‘on notice’ that they need to pay the Living Wage – there can be no justification for poverty-pay.”Under the new living wage scheme, Donegal workers will see their hourly rate increase on an incremental scale to €11.95 per hour after three years. A LIDL EXTRA IN PAY PACKETS FOR DONEGAL STAFF AS FIRM DOES U-TURN ON LIVING WAGE was last modified: October 8th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:A LIDL EXTRA IN PAY PACKETS FOR DONEGAL STAFF AS FIRM DOES U-TURN ON LIVING WAGElast_img read more
