NAIDAL Commends Pres. Weah for Executive Order 97

first_imgMadam Kalayi: “We believe that the duty waiver Exec. Order #97) will boost farmers’ yield.The National Agro-Inputs Dealers Association of Liberia (NAIDAL), an umbrella organization of agro-dealers, has commended President George Weah for lifting tariff on agriculture products, including seeds, fertilizers, agro-chemicals and farming equipment.NAIDA President Rebecca Kalayi made the commendation at a press conference on Wednesday, September 4, in her Sinkor Old Road office, a suburb of Monrovia.“We believe that the duty waiver (Executive Order #97) will boost farmers’ yield and contribute to the socioeconomic development of rural communities, which depend solely on agriculture,” she said.Smallholder farmers continue to face many difficulties in assessing good quality seeds, fertilizers, agro-chemicals, and other agricultural inputs at affordable prices. This is partly due to high import tariffs that make the country uncompetitive and unappealing for inputs distribution as compared to neighboring countries.It is therefore expected that the duty waiver, which is designed to bring down the cost of imported agricultural materials, will make inputs more affordable for smallholder farmers to improve their yields and incomes.In line with the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD), President Weah, in August 2019, issued Executive Order #97, spending tariffs on agriculture products for a period of one year. The reason is to reduce the cost of importing agricultural inputs by up to 24 percent through the removal of duties of goods and services tax.Madam Kalayi however called for an effective implementation of the Executive Order, if smallholder farmers are to greatly benefit. She said her organization stands to work with the government through the ministries of Agriculture, Commerce and Justice for the success of the policy.“We will work with relevant government ministries and stakeholders to create awareness so that smallholder farmers can have better understanding on the import tariff,” she said. “We want to appeal to the government to spearhead the effective implementation of the Executive Order by working closely with NAIDAL.”Madam Kalayi said that her organization is working with partners to ensure that the duty waiver becomes translated into a longer term agricultural policy.“We will appreciate if the government is to transform the duty waiver into a longer term agricultural policy to make the sector more viable,” she said.Madam Kalayi said further that with support from other partners, her organization is now equipped with the knowledge of agro-inputs’ utilization to better work with farmers. She however stressed the need for the government to strengthen the capacity of NAIDAL, with logistics to reach more smallholder farmers in the various communities.Meanwhile, several agro-dealers have told the Daily Observer that although they stand to benefit from the Executive Order #97, the high exchange rate of the United States dollars is a serious impediment to the growth of their respective businesses.Therefore, they want the government to stabilize the foreign exchange rate on the local market.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Alfred Brownell Wins Prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Cllr. Alfred Brownell is Africa’s Goldman Environmental Prize 2019 recipient.A Liberian lawyer, who stopped the destruction of over half a million acres of the country’s tropical forests, has been awarded the prestigious Goldman Environment Prize, the CNN has reported.According to the report, Cllr. Alfred Brownell, 53, was forced to flee Liberia and remains exiled in the United States after he mounted a campaign against Singapore-controlled Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL), one of the world’s biggest palm oil producing companies.But pursuing the case came at a hefty price for the lawyer, who says he faced intimidation and death threats after his campaign.The Goldman Environment Prize was presented to him on Monday, April 29, 2019 at a ceremony in San Francisco, and is awarded annually to six grassroots activists from six different continents, who have taken action and risked their lives to protect the planet.“Brownell’s fearless activism in the face of intimidation, harassment, and death threats has protected 513,500 acres of Liberia’s threatened forests – about 94 percent of the forest leased to GVL,” the awarding body said in a statement.Other winners of the top environment prize include South American activist Alberto Curamil and Ana Colovic Lesoska from North Macedonia, who spent seven years campaigning against two large hydropower plants planned for the national park.A struggling economyIn 2010, the Liberian government leased 543,600 acres of land to GVL to cultivate palm oil in Sinoe County in a bid to attract foreign direct investment into the country struggling to get back on its feet after 14-long year civil war that depleted the nation’s economy.But protests broke out against the company shortly after it began operation over allegations that GVL was clearing rainforests, and it did not obtain people’s consent before taking over their land.Residents complained their sacred sites, and ancestral graves were being wiped out in the process.“The traditional leaders came to my office to intervene, that their farmlands were being wiped out. We saw how bulldozers were clearing their farms, tree crops, and palm oil plantation,” said Brownell.CNN has made repeated attempts to obtain a comment from GVL, but did not immediately receive a response up to Monday when Brownell received the award.Protecting endangered wildlife, forests To stop the clearing of the forest land, Brownell worked with community members in October 2012 to file a complaint with the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), prompting an investigation into the company’s operations in the disputed area.RSPO’s complaints panel said GVL had failed to meet up to its obligations to the communities.The global body placed a ‘stop work’ order on the company’s operations in Sinoe County and asked them to renegotiate its agreement in disputed areas.For challenging the case, Brownell said his staff and associates were threatened with imprisonment. The face off with authorities reached fever pitch in 2016.“My colleagues and staff were being harassed by officers in plainclothes. Some were sent to my home, and I had to stay in a safe house for days because there was a manhunt for me,” the activist said.CNN contacted a spokesman for Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who was ruling the country at the time, but was unable to obtain a comment immediately.Overnight, Brownell says he was forced to abandon his home with his family and seek refuge in the United States.However, he continues to fight for the conservation of rainforests in the country, which are still under threat.“They made a mistake when they chased me out of Liberia. We have been able to fight this case more than before, because I now operate without fear or terror,” said Brownell, who is now a distinguished scholar in residence at Northeastern University in Boston.More than 60 percent of Liberia’s 4.8 million people depend on agriculture for their livelihoods.GVL’s plantation is near Liberia’s rainforests covering more than half of the Upper Guinean Forest — a forest land spread from Sierra Leone to Nigeria.It is home to a large population of elephants and endangered species such as tree pangolins, chimpanzees and pygmy hippos.Brownell hopes the Goldman prize recognition will inspire other civil societies and indigenous communities to continue the fight against injustices.last_img read more

Trend continues as Fairview rallies past Huskies

first_imgIt was a different looking top line for the Huskies Saturday evening, as the newly assembled forward line of Robbie Sidhu, Blair Karasiuk and Cayle Bell hit the ice as the Huskies’ number one offensive line.The move seemed to pay off, as the first period scoreboard was littered with all three names. The Huskies opened the scoring just 1:18 into the tilt, as Bell scored, with the lone assist going to Sidhu. Roughly eight minutes later at 9:21 of the first, the Huskies’ top line struck again, when Sidhu netted the Huskies’ second goal, with Karasiuk earning the assist.The road team padded their lead even further before the clock struck zero in the first, when Dayne Pederson scored his second of the season, with the assists going to rookies Kyle Leonard and Sean Ryder, their first helpers of the season.- Advertisement -Even with the solid first period for the Huskies, the tides began to turn in favour of the Flyers in the second. The home team got themselves on the scoreboard at 2:29 into the second, then once again at 7:54, with both goals coming off the stick of Flyers forward Craig Fraiser.With the Huskies still leading 3-2, the pups managed to double their lead, courtesy of a goal from the team’s leading point producer, Robbie Sidhu, who scored at the 11:16 marker of the second, producing a 4-2 lead for Fort St. John.However, the back-and-forth tilt continued in the second, as the Flyers scored at the 16:15 marker of the middle period, concluding the second with the Huskies leading 4-3.Advertisement Third periods have not been a friendly twenty minutes for the Huskies the past few months, and Saturday that trend continued, despite opening the scoring in the period. Cayle Bell scored his second of the evening on the power play just 2:08 into the second, with Sidhu earning the lone assist, providing another two-goal lead for Fort St. John, 5-3.Unfortunately, the Huskies third period woes resurfaced Saturday, as the Flyers scored three unanswered goals in final 15 minutes of the third period, as the home team completed the 6-5 come-from-behind victory.Following the tough weekend, the Huskies now sit in seventh in the NWJHL standings, with a record of 4-10-0-1 and nine points. Saturday’s loss was another lost opportunity for the Huskies to progress in the standings, as a win would have tied them with Fairview, rather than put them four points behind the Flyers.The Huskies will have a week to put the disappointing weekend behind them, as they approach their one-game weekend this week, when they play host to the Slave Lake Wolves on Saturday, November 24.Advertisementlast_img read more

New look Tusker lose to KCCA in friendly

first_img0Shares0000Tusker FC’s Jackson Macharia tackles KCCA’s Steven Sserwadda. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 22- With two weeks left before the 2018 season of the Kenyan Premier League kicks off, new Tusker FC head coach Sam Timbe was handed a reality check by Ugandan Premier League champions Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) in a 1-0 friendly loss on Monday afternoon.Steven Serwadda struck the lone goal in the 23rd minute of the tie to hand KCCA the win, a reprieve after they lost 4-2 to Kenyan champions Gor Mahia on Saturday in Nakuru. In the starting 11, Timbe fielded only five players who featured for the club last season with new boys Robert Achema, Eric Ambunya, Justine Omary, Apollo Otieno and Mathew Odongo all starting.Ambunya started out on the left side of defense with Omary partnering Eugene Asike in defense. Achema started off as the second striker while Odongo plied one of the wings.The visitors started on the front foot with Isaac Kirabira asking the first questions, trying to catch keeper Duncan Ochieng off guard with a dipping shot from distance, but the effort went over.Tusker’s first opportunity of the game came in the 19th minute when Boniface Muchiri cut to his favorite right foot from the left wing, but his shot was well collected by KCCA keeper Tom Ikara.KCCA who fielded a weakened side with most of their first team regulars away with the Uganda Cranes in the African nations Championship (CHAN) were enterprising and seemed hungrier with Allan Okello and Serwadda doing most of the work in attack.Tusker FC defender Eugine Asike tussle with KCCA players. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAThe early pressure paid off in the 23rd minute when Serwadda tapped home from close range after KCCA turned over possession with Okello breaking off on the right before cutting back a cross inside the box.Serwadda almost doubled his and the team’s tally 10 minutes later when he capitalized on a defensive lapse from the brewers but his shot from the edge of the six yard box went agonizingly wide.Timbe was forced into a sub with 15 minutes left on the clock, pulling out Achema who had struggled to click into the team and he brought on another new face, Edwin Lavatsa.The lanky former Gor Mahia forward almost announced himself in style when he glanced in a header from Muchiri’s cross, but the effort went wide.In the second half, Timbe started off by pulling out Timothy Otieno for Mike Khamati while another new boy Peter Nzuki was introduced for Mathew Odongo. These were changes aimed at bettering the attack.However, the second half had few chances in between with Muchiri attempting another effort with a shot from the left after drifting into a good shooting position, but the effort went wide.Tusker FC head coach Sam Timbe issuing instructions to his team during their friendly match against KCCA. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAKCCA’s teenage prodigy Okello caused some jitters in the 68th minute when he took on a daunting run from the right and drifted into the box, but his eventual shot was blocked for a corner by keeper Duncan Ochieng.Tusker piled pressure in the final minutes of the match, but their efforts to get an equalizer went up in smoke.KCCA will now play AFC Leopards on Wednesday at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos before completing their Kenyan tour with a tie against Sofapaka on Friday at the Narok Stadium.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Area man finally honored for WWII heroics

Dr. Bernard Bail had the medal clipped to his chest by Vice President Dick Cheney. “From the day of our founding, the decisive protector of this nation’s freedom has been the character of citizens like you,” Cheney said. “It is a joyous and thrilling and touching occasion for me,” Bail said afterward in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from the French Embassy in Washington, where he was also honored.

Bail said he doesn’t think about his war experience often, but news of the current Iraq conflict jostles his memory. “If I look at the war, our current struggle, then I think about what it was at that time,” he said. “Different time, different war, different purpose but insofar as you can be hurt or maimed, it’s the same.” Bail went on 22 more combat missions, earning many medals, including the Air Medal with three oak leaf clusters, the Distinguished Flying Cross with two oak leaf clusters, a presidential citation and a Purple Heart. On his final mission, his plane was shot down over Germany and shell fragments wounded him in the skull and neck.
