Dear Editor,When the new GECOM Chairman was sworn in, he raised the Holy Bible and gave testimony that he would carry out his duties in a fair and above-board manner, so help me God! This was a declaration, or at least “should have been” his resolve, to the people of this country: that he would be true to his calling. However, subsequent revelations have proven him a liar.Coupled with this fact is that the chairman in question is a high ranking church officer who holds a position of trust and supposedly high moral integrity — qualities that should enhance the position he holds; but, here again, he has a failing grade. So, in fair assessment, is Mr Patterson an honest or fit and proper person? The answer is no; this individual cannot — and I repeat: cannot, be trusted to hold office.As a Christian myself, I believe Patterson should have sworn on another book, and not the Bible, because lifting up the Good Book then openly lying brings not only Patterson, but Christians on a whole, into disrepute. I do not know if Patterson has feelings of remorse, but I am ashamed for the guy; yes, I really am.So, let’s examine the latest fiasco at GECOM. The position of Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO) was soon to be filled, and the choice of Mr Vishnu Persaud was shunned for a virtual newcomer, Roxanne Myers. Mr Persaud, who held office there since 2001, is duly qualified, experienced, and moreover, his work carries an unblemished record.Qualifications and experience — or meritocracy, as they put it — was thrown aside for someone who is inexperienced and less qualified. The only qualities she may have had above his is that she is Afro-Guyanese and is purportedly a PNC party hack, all new and very interesting criteria for office at GECOM.As per normal, Vincent the Liar, Vincent the notorious, came on board to defend Patterson’s decision. In fact I should say Alexander came on board unveiling his sinister plan in getting rid of Persaud.Just like he did with Dr Gocool Boodhoo, you degrade, then fire.Let us pause for one moment and ask: Why is Alexander doing all the talking? Why is a party-appointed commissioner making these definitive statements? Isn’t this the work of the chairman? Why is a known, corrupt party hack like Alexander speaking on sensitive matters at GECOM? Why?Mr Alexander is totally out of place, and most certainly out of order. But it all goes to show who this man is, and what are his plans for a PNC-dominated, PNC-controlled GECOM.So the name Persaud says it all, and the real cause for concern for Alexander. He was forever uncomfortable with an “Indian” being in the inner sanctum of the decision-making at GECOM. He does not want any Vishnu, Persaud Singh or any sounding ethnicity around him. He is playing his shameless game safe; he does not want anyone to expose the shenanigans of a corrupt PNC GECOM.Like Gocool Boodhoo, he wants a “clean” job for that planned one-seat victory for The PNC again.So, Alexander is in fact the Chairman de jure of GECOM, and not Patterson. His actions directly reveal who is the powerhouse behind all decisions taken at the commission. It is Vincent Alexander again; he is the one calling the shots.Patterson has found himself in an awkward position, to wit, being a puppet on a string juggling to the tricks of Alexander. So my advice to this fossil is: Do not denigrate yourself and become a fossilised embarrassment.My advice to you, dear sir, is please respect your age and go into voluntary retirement to live a life of respect. At your age and in your profession, dignity and decorum should be the hallmarks on your curriculum vitae. Don’t be cornered into a position of public disgrace. Your party is making a fool out of you, sir.Finally, someone rightly remarked: no wonder Guyana — Georgetown in particular — is overrun by liars, bandits, thieves and con artists; because these are the meritorious qualities required for office under this administration.Sincerely,Neil Adams
The County Education Officer in Nimba County Wleh Sillah prevented scores of journalists from interviewing Education Minister George Werner as he ended his weeklong tour in the Ganta.Mr. Sillah threatened to call on officers of the Liberia National Police to keep journalists away from Minister Werner, who did not do anything much to help the situation.“Don’t go near the Minister, but if you force it, I will order police to get you all from here,” he threatened.Minister Werner and his entourage entered Nimba County from the southeast of the country, where he had been touring several schools before arriving in Ganta to also visit the Child Friendly School Campus.Journalists managed to speak with Minister Werner earlier but he asked them to meet him at his rest stop, at which time the several expatriates traveling along with him would have had the chance to talk to the media.Arriving along with the Minister’s convoy, excited journalists made their way to his location when CEO Sillah decided to show to the journalists who really should have access to Minister Werner. The journalists included those of the Daily Observer, Inquirer, ELBC and several others.“I don’t want to speak with any journalist on my tour before the Legislators ask me questions,” Minister Werner had told the reporters at the Child Friendly School Campus, contrary to his earlier promise to allow them to interview him on the results of his tour so far.Observers interviewed told journalists that there are many issues that affect education in Nimba County since the new education policy which led to the early closure of schools and they wanted to hear from what Minister Werner would say about it.CEO Sillah had been at loggerhead with owners of private and mission schools in Nimba County for what they described as his reckless statements many of which he was compelled retract with some apologies.The recent distribution of school grants in Nimba County was marked by reports of alleged fraud in which certain percentage was deducted from each school which could not be verified.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Kimmie Weeks at the dedication of a hand pump in Harrisburg, rural Montserrado County. “In the whole town it is hard for you to find a drinking cup because there is no drinking water.” – ResidentWith tons of kaleidoscope-colored drinking cups in hand, residents danced with excitement at the sight of a newly constructed hand pump, dedicated by Youth Action International (YAI) over the weekend in the Harrisburg community, rural Montserrado County.The hand pump is being hailed by residents as a safe source from which they can get safe drinking water.“I am happy for this, we will place an emergency number on the hand pumps wall so that you will be able to contact us in case the pump gets damaged,” said YAI founder Dr. Kimmie L. Weeks. “So that you don’t have to sit here and wait for it to get fixed again. Just call the number and it will be fixed right away.”Taking the first drink from the hand pump, assisted by a resident after cutting the ribbon, Dr. Weeks said he understands the significance of such resourcefulness for this community. For the past few years, he added, he has brought filters to help rural dwellers get safe drinking water from any source.“We are repairing hand pumps across the entire Montserrado so that other hand pumps are replaced in nearby communities. The realization that the community itself lacked safe drinking water came after an assessment done by YAI and, though we were not ready to start our project, they talked about water being one of their major their problems and the fact that almost all the hand pumps have been destroyed. We thought by all means we should press ahead and start out the project and I don’t like to waste time, when I say something should start, it should start,” Dr. Weeks added.Taking the first drink from the hand pump, assisted by a resident after cutting the ribbon, Dr. Weeks said he understands the significance of such resourcefulness for this community.The Harrisburg residents said they have had only two sources where they get water from, namely the Saint Paul River and a polluted creek that runs down a path through Harrisburg.“Even if we see feces in the river, we will still draw the water and drink it because we need it. Even if we see dirty and old rags floating in the creek, we will still drink it,” residents said.In addition, Fatmattah Konneh, bush farmer and resident of Harrisburg, said having been affected by the lack of resources in the past, now having safe drinking water is a big encouragement.“In the whole town it is hard for you to find a drinking cup, because there is no water. Sometimes water can’t come for one week, two weeks and then water gets short,” she stated.“If anyone wanted to be a leader in my community and asked out of all the facilities that were needed, which one is the best, bringing drinking water in my community will be the best you could do,” she added, “because that is what we are crying for. Dr. Weeks, I know that is why you were given the knowledge and the title ‘Doctor’, because no doctor in the world will tell you not to drink water because water is life.”Afterwards, YAI has pledged to extend more of its resources in the community as a request by residents.The Harrisburg residents said they have had only two sources where they get water from, namely the Saint Paul River and a polluted creek that runs down a path through their town.“Soon we will start on a youth community center bringing computers for the young people. The youth must show that they are energized to growing; we must be able to see the young people who must benefit from it by being a part of helping. When we start the work, we expect the young people to be here,” he shared.Alternatively, YAI is a United States based organization that focuses on education, health and economic empowerment. Its founder, Dr. Kimmie Weeks, is also an Activist, social entrepreneur, motivational speaker and humanitarian and is aware that safe drinking water is ‘a basic human right’. More than a billion people across the world lack safe drinking water, according to the World Health Organization.Meanwhile, YAI also donated to the Crozierville township clinic some small-small items requested by leaders during the assessments.“The clinic told us its priorities and in the case of here they said water and they have no drugs in their government health center because it has been a while since they received antibiotics and things like that. They get the anti-malaria, but they don’t have the basic necessities, and we provided it,” Dr. Weeks shared.“We have a partner who will air lift medical supplies in Liberia soon we will be able to reach out to many clinics in Liberia as they say they need essentials.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Mesut Ozil Juventus are lining up a stunning £29m move for Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, according to reports in Italy.Italian newspaper Tuttosport have gone big on the news that Juve will move for Ozil if they flog fellow midfielders Paul Pogba or Arturo Vidal this summer.It is almost impossible to imagine the Gunners will sell the 26-year-old for £29m having splashed out £42m on him just two years back.But Ozil has not always produced his best for Arsenal, where he has made 48 Premier League appearances over the past two season, scoring nine goals.And Juve reckon they can prise him away from north London, Tuttosport claim, and see him as the perfect ‘No.10’ for their new-look side.It is also reported that Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are also interested in doing a deal for the Germany international. 1

I think that was, to be fair, worse by the fact that he distanced himself from his team-mates as Stoke. They were unprofessional last season, Stoke. There’s no doubt, and he epitomised it.“He could score the goal of the tournament and he could have the most amazing game.“But he could also be there for three matches, do nothing and just amble and wobble around.“To be honest with you, with him, players like that I can’t have. I struggle with it.” Neville emphasised his dislike of Liverpool football club in a Man United fanzine in 2006. “I can’t stand Liverpool, I can’t stand the people, I can’t stand anything to do with them,” he said. In January 2006 Neville was also fined £10,000 for maniacally celebrating Rio Ferdinand’s late winner in front of the travelling Liverpool fans at Old Trafford. The defender said it was worth it, as he explained to Jamie Carragher last year. To be fair, Liverpool had been singing songs about me all game so I thought: ‘they need to have a bit back don’t they?’ Shaqiri even offered up the shirt, signing it with the message: “To my no.1 fan Gary, please don’t track back – SORRY – please don’t backtrack on this bet.”But when judgement day arrived, Neville wasn’t slow to bring up a previous bet the pair had apparently struck about former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho when the Brazilian moved to White Hart Lane in 2013.Neville claimed Carragher said the player would score 15 goals in a season, and when he didn’t he accepted the forfeit of wearing a United shirt. 3 possible standings 3 Football news Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes
