first_imgThe 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)last_img read more

first_img Silva has penned a three-year deal with the Goodison Park club Marco Silva has been appointed Everton’s new manager, the Premier League club have confirmed.Silva has penned a three-year deal with the Merseyside club and succeeds Sam Allardyce, who was sacked by the Toffees following the end of the Premier League season.Everton’s new director of football Marcel Brands, hired earlier this month, is said to have been involved in the decision to hire Silva, while the club’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has been keen on the Portuguese, 40, since last year.Moshiri originally wanted Silva to replace Ronaldo Koeman before the appointment of Allardyce, but Watford rejected an approach from the Goodison Park club for their recently-appointed head coach.A few weeks later Watford sacked Silva, but he is now back in the Premier League.“I’m really proud to be the new Everton manager,” Silva told the official club website. “I’m excited and I’m really happy to take this big challenge for us as a club and for me as a manager.“I want to express my thanks to Farhad, to the Chairman, to the Board of Directors and to Marcel as well for the confidence in my work. I know the huge history of Everton as a club and what the fans expect. I’m sure with everybody working together I will be ready for this challenge.“We have a lot of work to do in this next month and it is important to prepare everything in the right way. But there will be even more important work to do from the start of pre-season into the first Premier League match of next season.“I know what our fans expect – they expect results but not only results. I want our fans to be proud when they see our team on the pitch. I want them to feel that we are committed, that we are working hard and enjoying our football because that is important as well.“We want to build a great connection between the squad and the fans, and I’m sure that with our attitude and demands of commitment then our style of play will see that, I believe.“Everton is a really ambitious club and that is what I want. What we are seeing now are good changes at the Club. The Club is changing its approach. But one thing we cannot change and nobody wants to change is the huge history and ambition of the Club.“Everybody knows Everton’s history. When you are a club like Everton, you only have one solution – to aim to win. In football it is impossible to win every match but we must do everything to show in every game that we have ambition. That is what I want and I’m sure we will show that every single week.”Major shareholder Farhad Moshiri said: “I am really pleased to extend a warm Everton welcome to our new manager, Marco Silva. As Marcel has pointed out, Marco is a young, dynamic, energetic and very modern manager whose dedication to his job and demanding approach will help us, I believe, to move forward in a confident, purposeful way to where we want to be as a Club. His abilities are underpinned by a strong footballing philosophy, a fierce work ethic and his enthusiasm in embracing Everton, our values and our ambitions has hugely impressed me, as I hope it will each and every Evertonian.”Chairman Bill Kenwright said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Marco Silva as our new manager. As the posters outside Goodison have proclaimed for many years, DNA is important to Everton and Evertonians. It’s what they instinctively search out… In Marco and Marcel we welcome a pair of sportsmen whose statements of intent have already shown that they embrace that special quality that Evertonians look for… and with Farhad’s vigorous patronage we are looking forward to the three M’s, Marco Marcel and Moshiri, help take the Blues back to their rightful position among football’s elite.” 1last_img read more
