Finance Ministry Praised on Assurances against ‘Tumbling Economy’

first_imgThe Liberia National Students Unions (LINSU) has expressed its satisfaction and appreciation to Finance Minister Amara Konneh of assuring Liberians of making progress to improve the economy despite the challenges of continuous budget shortfall.The president of LINSU, Varney A. Jarsey, said though the admittance of a declined economic by the Finance Minister is troubling, but they believe it is reflective of global and regional economics, which is associated with the decline in demand of worldwide commodity prices, exchange rate vitality and other external shocks.The LINSU boss said consistent with research and confirmed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), there is a threat to sub-Saharan Africa because growth stability would be external to include exchange rate vitality, as seen in Ghana, Nigeria and other African countries and the falling prices of key commodities like iron ore and rubber, which Liberia largely depends on.He made the remarks Thursday, May 15, at a press conference held at LINSU’s headquarters in Monrovia. Mr. Jarsey said their statement was based on what they witnessed during the May 13th appearance of Finance Minister Konneh at the House of Representatives.“In view of these developments, and our vested interest in resource mobilization and allocation through the budget, LINSU is constrained by moral imperatives and duty bound to comment on these developments, having witnessed the hearings, conducted its own research, made inquiries and reviewed relevant literatures, “ Mr. Jarsey said.The LINSU boss stated that like in the case of Liberia’s declined economy, Ghanaian President John Mahama made a startling remark during the National Economic Forum in Ghana on May 13, 2014, coincidentally the same day the legislators invited honorable Konneh and his team were invited.According to Mr. Jarsey, the Ghanaian President said: “We are in the midst of overcoming various challenges associated with this new national income status while at the same time striving to develop the institutions that would enable us grow and transform our economy at this time of great volatility and uncertainty in the global economy.”He continues: “Three aspects of these challenges to which I’ve referred have remained particularly persistent over time. These are: the rising debt levels, as well as the associated burden of servicing them; the disproportionate amount of government revenue that goes into the payment of salaries and benefits of public sector workers and pensioners; and the resultant high budget deficits.”The LINSU president told reporters that the student body holds the view that no one individual both on the fiscal and monetary side of the Liberian economy should be singlehandedly blamed for the current turbulence, therefore the legislature should not front for resignation of public official amidst the global economic problems, but should rather help clean the messy system.“We as a national student movement worry more about the current state of Liberia’s educational system as prescribe by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as a ‘mess.’ LINSU believes the legislature must put more monies in the National budget to rescue Liberia from this academic menace or debacle,” Mr. Jarsey opined; adding: “as we all strides to build the human resource capacity of young Liberians.” In the wake of tackling the budgetary shortfall, LINSU has urged the spending agencies to be committed to contribute to the budget and the Executive and Legislative Branches of government should refrain from “wasteful and unnecessary spending.”“Once we continue to make ambitious overestimates, we are risking a shortfall. We need to use the 2013/2014 budget as a lesson and prepare a realistic and better spending plan in 2014/2015,” the LINSU boss said. “We cannot spend what we do not have!”The national student body also urged members of the legislature to conduct state matters in ways that reflect a unity of purpose than reverting to the media to attack, criticize or make policy comments when said can be addressed on the floors of the legislature.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

No arrest in Better Hope pensioner’s murder

first_imgTwo weeks after the gruesome murder of 76-year-old Ramkissoon David, also called “Dilip” of Lot 61 Better Hope South, the Police are still to make an arrest.Acting Crime Chief Hugh Jessemy, when contacted, told Guyana Times that the Police were conducting further investigations into the murder and have questioned several persons, including the son of the now dead man.Detectives have established robbery was the motive for the murder after it was discovered that almost $6 million belonging to David was missing. The monies, according to well-placed sources, were kept in a secret place known only to the now dead man and a close relative.Murdered, Ramkissoon DavidHowever, that relative has denied having any involvement in the man’s murder. The Police are looking for new leads that can direct them to the perpetrators.The pensioner was found with his throat slit in the lower flat of his two-storey home. At the time of the discovery, he was sitting in an upright position facing the wall.The bedrooms in the upper flat of the house were ransacked. Family members subsequently found several envelopes torn and placed in the freezing compartment of a refrigerator. The elderly man, who was last seen alive at 13:30h at a nearby shop, was left at home alone by his relatives who went to spend the day at a creek on the Soesdyke-Linden Highway.It was after they returned home and found the house in darkness, they suspected something was amiss. As they turned on the electricity, they realised that the bedrooms in the upper flat were ransacked and when they ventured into the lower flat, they stumbled upon the elderly man’s body.They later noticed a hole in the back fence which suggested that the perpetrators gained entry to the premises via that route.last_img read more

AU Praised for Aiding Liberia’s Ebola Fight

first_imgActing Minister Shoniyin said the AU is regarded as one of Liberia’s Ebola champions because it worked tirelessly to stamp out the virus.Making the commendation Monday, December 21, during a farewell reception in honor of Ambassador Harrison Solaja, Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), Mr. Shoniyin stated that the Ambassador worked hard to facilitate and deepen Liberia’s relations with the AU, adding: “In his four-year tenure in Liberia, we accomplished a lot together.”He heaped praises on the AU and Ambassador Solaja, who he said did an enviable job in putting Liberia’s agenda on the front burner of the AU. “The government of Liberia continues to enjoy both diplomatic and multilateral relations with the AU and the African Union Commission,” according to the Acting Foreign Minister.“Among the many contributions of the African Union to Liberia’s economic development, Liberians remember the urgent response to the Ebola outbreak in the MRU region, when the African Union convened an Extraordinary Executive Session on 8 September, 2014, during which time Member States were called upon to urgently lift all travel bans and restrictions on the Ebola-affected countries. Beyond this call, the Commission scrupulously followed-up and requested Member States to manifest their solidarity by the resumption of flights and abandoning border closures.”The Acting Minister stated that the decision from that Session went further to officially launch the Africa Union’s response platform under the name, “African Union Support to Ebola Outbreak in West Africa (ASEOWA)” and by mid-September 2014, ASEOWA began deployment in the affected countries, using Liberia as the Mission’s base. “Today, we celebrate the more than 835 volunteers from across Africa who made themselves available to serve in the affected countries, out of which 339 served in Liberia. Their humanity led them to the hot spots and guarded them, that not a single volunteer contracted the disease. Beyond the financial contributions of many AU member states, the deeds of contributing countries to the intervention of ASEOWA will never be forgotten, as they form part of the great history of Africa’s response to its own problem,” Minister Shoniyin stated in his commendation of the continental body. He further stated that the AU also provided US$500,000 to the three affected countries as direct support and further advocated for debt cancellation for Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone in order to alleviate the impact of the Ebola crisis on their economies and to facilitate recovery and development. The Acting Foreign Minister told the audience, including foreign diplomats and heads of mission, that prior to the Ebola epidemic in Liberia, the AU made a series of meaningful contributions to the education sector of Liberia such as providing monetary assistance to a number of schools in Montserrado and Gbarpolu counties to the tune of US$200,000. However, the Minister said that in order to give back and contribute to peace and stability in the region, the government of Liberia identified with the AU by dispatching troops from the Arm Forces of Liberia to Bamako, Mali, to form part of the African Peacekeeping Mission, which later transformed into the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission. Responding, Ambassador Solaja, who assumed office in October 2011, remembered that when the deadly Ebola virus was raging in Liberia in July and August of 2014, a solution had to be found to the “mysterious health and humanitarian disaster.” “With the support of partners, including ASEOWA, the resilience of Liberians prevailed leading to the containment of the disease,” he said.He also stated that the AU spent about US$37 million, through contributions from partners and the African private sector, in the deployment of about 850 AU health volunteers, and provision of needed logistics to fight the deadly virus in the three Mano River Union affected nations.Ambassador Solaja enumerated several other projects that were done through his office, in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs during his service in Liberia.He acknowledged the progress made by the government of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. He named the development in infrastructure and the restoration of essential basic services to Liberians. “I have witnessed several efforts made by the government in areas of governance, peace, security and the rule of law, the economy and on the humanitarian front, to improve the lives of Liberian citizens,” he stated.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Crops Produced in Lofa Going to Guinea, Sierra Leone

first_imgOne of many vehicles loaded with agriculture commodities bound for the commercial border town of Gueckedou, Guinea.Bad roads, high transport costs inhibit sales to markets in Gbarnga, Kakata, MonroviaDue to a host of difficulties including bad roads and the lack of access to financial credit, farmers and multipurpose cooperatives in Lofa County, according to sources, are transporting key locally produced commodities such as rice, oil, plantains and bananas to neighboring Guinea and Sierra Leone.Farmers and business people producing such commodities told the Daily Observer in separate interviews that they are doing so due to deplorable road conditions that prohibit transportation of said produce to more valuable markets in Gbarnga, Ganta and Monrovia. The deplorable state of the Voinjama/Zorzor highway and the subsequent hike in transportation fares, they say, increase the risk of loss.Managers of local cooperatives informed this newspaper recently that prices being offered in two neighboring countries for those same commodities, however, are so low to the extent that farmers invariably find themselves at the mercy of cutthroat middlemen, who unfairly price their goods.Attempts by farmers involved in the cross-border trade to reject the unfair prices often prove difficult, basically because the lack of finance and deplorable road conditions leave them with no alternatives but to sell to the middlemen or to take their commodities across the border either into Sierra Leone or Guinea where their goods fetch comparatively low prices.Motorbike loaded with plantains and bananas, harvested in Foya, bound for sale at the commercial border town of Gueckedou, Guinea.Two farmers who crossed over to Guinea last week, Elizabeth and Helen Tamba, said that locally processed rice was bought at a low price when so much was spent on transportation fares from Foya Airfield to the Guinea border. Furthermore, across the border, their items have to be transacted in Guinean Francs, a situation that causes them to lose more money when trying to buy back Liberian dollars after doing business on that side of the borderFor Foya Statutory District, especially, there are always large harvests of crops such as lowland (swamp) rice, red oil and plantain and banana. However, most of those commodities end up being sold at very low prices across the border; otherwise, they end up going to waste.In Kolahun District, majority of the local farmers produce upland rice, pepper, eddoes and peanuts. They experience the same hardships at the hands of Guinean and Sierra Leonean traders and middlemen across the border.Saah R. James, General Manager of the Intofarwor Farmers and Multipurpose Cooperative Society.To alleviate such hardships, Saah R. James, General Manager of the Intofarwor Farmers and Multipurpose Cooperative Society (IFMCS), has appealed to the Liberian government to empower them through micro-credit or soft-loans that would enable them to procure equipment to process and add value to their harvested produce.According to James, his group would need at least US$50,000. He also underscored the need to revitalize the Agriculture Cooperative Development Bank (ACDB), which played an important role in the growth and progress of farmers in the 1980s.He also assured that Foya Statutory District as an agricultural hub, when given the necessary financial assistance, farmers can gradually scale up to meet local demand for commodities such as rice, plantain, banana, cassava and eddoes.“We are prepared to produce the nation’s staple, rice and some needed vegetables for most of the urban markets during these critical economic conditions in our country,” Mr. James assured.He also recommended the connection of feeder roads to areas that are high in agriculture production, such as Foya and Kolahun districts. Such road connectivity, James argued, would improve the socioeconomic conditions of local farmers and enable them to send their children to school.Since the 1960s, Foya and Kolahun Districts are notably known for the production of cash crops such as cocoa, coffee, peanuts and eddoes as well as sugar cane and pepper.Prior to the civil war, the general markets of Gueckedou, Foya and Koindu contributed immensely to the socioeconomic viability of the three Mano River Union countries in West Africa as traders on all sides played major roles in the economies of Foya and Kolahun Districts.But, since the civil war ended in 2003, such commodities continue to be produced but, due to the perpetual and unending deplorable conditions of roads in the two agriculturally driven districts, farmers have found another by carrying same to neighboring Guinea and Sierra Leone.In Sierra Leone and Guinea, business people in the two countries continue to buy those commodities at very low prices and such unfair business practice is not making any significant impact in the lives of farmers of Foya and Kolahun District in Lofa County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pep prepared to ring changes for Man City-Man Utd clash

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola © AFP/File / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 6 – Pep Guardiola indicated Friday he is prepared to make significant changes for the Manchester derby to keep alive Manchester City’s faint hopes of reaching the Champions League semi-finals.A victory for City against neighbours United at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday would seal the Premier League title after a trophy-less first season in charge. In normal circumstances, winning a derby to secure the league title would be the undoubted focus, but Guardiola acknowledges that he has to have one eye on the second leg of their European quarter-final against Liverpool three days later.City are on the brink of exiting the Champions League after losing 3-0 in the first leg at Anfield on Wednesday.With the second leg coming up on Tuesday, Guardiola is trying to keep his players fresh for their European challenge.“It’s a different competition,” he said. “We are thinking about recovering the players, about playing in front of our fans, creating a good game to put them (Liverpool) under pressure.“They’re almost qualified but we have 90 minutes. The door is almost closed but a little bit open and maybe there is some space for us to get in.”Runaway Premier League leaders City are in the middle of a relentless schedule, with Tuesday’s Champions League home match followed by a Premier League trip to fourth-placed Tottenham four days later.Guardiola suggested that he would keep his options open regarding team selection, but is expected to rotate his squad over the next week.“We have three massive games — United, Liverpool and Tottenham,” he said. “We have just a few days between each game.“We have to see the condition of the players. We will have a training session and we’ll speak with the docs and see what’s the best team. We’ll pick a team to win the game against United.“We are going into it to win it. We have one eye on Tuesday though.”Guardiola is unlikely to risk top scorer Sergio Aguero, who has not played since suffering a knee injury during a training session on March 10.The City manager is refusing to commit himself publicly as to whether Aguero will be fit for the Liverpool game but will give the striker every chance to recover.Guardiola believes a good result against United — in addition to securing the title — would give his players just the boost they need for the return against Liverpool.“Tomorrow, no matter what happens, we’ll have six more chances,” he said. “Everything is an influence, but I’d rather be facing United with a better result than we had. We must adapt, though.“The result against United will help emotionally to prepare for the game on Tuesday.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
