Senate Confirms Mobutu Nyenpan As Public Works Minister

first_imgMr. Nyepan, Liberia’s new Public Works MinisterFollowing a deliberation before the Senate Committee on Public Works on Thursday, February 15, 2016, the Liberian Senate on Friday, February 16, unanimously voted to confirm Mobutu V. Nyenpan as Public Works Minister along with his deputy for Technical Services and Assistant Minister for Administration.Two weeks ago, President Weah nominated Mr. Nyenpan to the post of Public Works Minister pending confirmation by the Senate.The confirmation took place at a special Senate session at the Capitol Building. In what the public described as one of the best confirmation hearings, the new Infrastructure Minister promised to institute a robust zero-tolerance attitude towards violators of zoning regulations and those engaged in construction activities without obtaining the requisite permits from the Ministry.“We will demolish structures that are deliberately built in alleys, waterways contrary to zoning regulations and city planning,” he warned.He further told the Committee that his leadership will transform Public Works into a technical ministry by placing a special premium on Engineers, architects, and surveyors at the Ministry, adding, the Ministry of Public Works shall be the Ministry of Engineers, for engineers and by engineers with support from auxiliary employees.In addition to empowering engineers, the Works Minister also promised to seek the welfare of all workers at the Ministry of Public Works and create an enabling environment to reap maximum productivity.As part of his initial strategy, the civil engineer and outspoken Southeastern Politician stated that he will immediately redeploy all of the county resident engineers to their respective counties of assignment.Speaking about Public Private Partnership (PPP), Minister Nyenpan said his administration will also seek a renewed partnership with the Association of Liberian Construction Contractors as well as the Engineering Society of Liberia and the Chambers of Architects and Surveyors.According to him, his administration will give priority to Liberian construction contractors and dedicate resources to the building of their capacity so as to enable them fairly compete with other companies in the industry.”The  Sinoe County former senator was however quick to inform his former colleagues that he will perform his duty in line with President Weah’s “pro-poor government” policy.Meanwhile, Mobutu Nyenpan has assured legislators of unhindered access to his administration.“We shall appoint two desk officers in the Community Services Department of the ministry, exclusively dedicated to receiving and processing for the prompt response, all queries and concerns from 1) Individual Legislators and or the Legislature and 2) from the communities. All issues will be handled in a timely manner,” he said.He noted that as a former lawmaker, he was aware that Legislators sometimes have vested interests in the implementation of infrastructural projects in their constituencies.Hence, experience has taught him that occasionally Legislators get frustrated when their concerns or complaints about infrastructural development are left unattended in a timely manner.He, therefore, pledged that Legislators will find in him a reliable partner for infrastructural development in Liberia, noting that his leadership will be sensitive and responsive to the infrastructure concerns of members of the National Legislature.The former Sinoe County Senator told the committee that, while his administration will do everything possible to satisfy the Legislators, he too expect them to reciprocate by giving him the necessary support in terms of budgetary allocation consistent with law, adding President Weah’s “pro-poor” governance policy will be meaningless if infrastructural development programs are not adequately funded to address them.He concluded by promising to uphold President Weah’s “pro-poor agenda” in the execution of his infrastructure duty.Mobutu Nyenpan comes to the job with lots of experience and qualifications. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering, LLB in Law and a Master’s degree in International Relations.He has worked as a civil engineer both in the public and private sectors. He served in key senior managerial and administrative capacities at government agencies including the Liberia Water & Sewer Corporation (LWSC), and the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC).Prior to his nomination as Public Works Minister, Mr. Nyenpan served in the Senate for nine consecutive years as the senior Senator for Sinoe County and served as the chairman of the Committee on Public Works. Also at the Senate, he had represented the legislature to the ECOWAS Parliament, where he served on its Infrastructure Committee.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Route 42 operators want relocation from flood-hit minibus park

first_img…as morning floods affect capitalAs the intermittent rains poured on Tuesday, several Timehri (Route 42) bus park operators demanded that City Hall relocate their temporary bus park which is prone to flooding. They were relocated from the Stabroek Square, Georgetown to High Street, Georgetown to facilitate the temporary transfer of displaced stall owners at the deteriorating Stabroek Market Wharf.The flooded Route 42 bus park as seen on Tuesday morning displaced the already displaced Timehri operatorsThe bus operators’ latest challenge was Tuesday morning’s flood waters which displaced them from the park which some termed a river. Others view the location as a hotbed of illicit activities, including crime and prostitution.“Imagine we mixing with the prostitutes and the thieves, school children going to lessons and coming home lil late, people working and going home in the evenings and even foreigners who use the public transportation to be taken to the airport, all of we have to be in between thieves and prostitutes, no respect they (City Hall) don’t have for we,” an operator explained.Operators related also that they had to beg the Traffic Department for them to park outside the nearby Ashmins store with strict instructions to return to the assigned High Street parking space today (Wednesday). However, in their view, they must return to their original parking areas. Some operators even said the Mayor is not looking into their interests.Everton Pole, who has been operating for some 20 years, said minibus operators make a significant contribution towards transportation in Guyana. He berated City Hall’s treatment of the operators.“Let’s say that they want to relocate us from there, what is wrong with having consultations with us, what is wrong with meeting us and letting us have an input into this thing… They are treating us like animals, like me are moving from one pasture to the next… They had no discussion with us at all,” Pole explained.The frustrated man also criticised the United Minibus Union (UMU) which he said has not been looking into their concerns. “I’m hearing about the minibus association, he (UMU President Eon Andrews) never came to us and had any discussions with us as it relates to what our concerns are and what issues needs to be addressed urgently…When we talk about representation for this Timehri Park, it’s at zero. You can’t not be in touch with the local people but you going at a forum and want to make representation, oh no, it’s not going to happen,” the man stated.Christopher Johnny, a passenger, chimed in with the operators to vent his frustration, calling for the Mayor to vacate her post.“It’s very bad here because in the night you could come and get rob. Like the Mayor just get up with a dream and say that the park has to be moved. She ain’t know what she doing, like she own the town… I want the Mayor to come out of office…” Johnny remarked.last_img read more

COMMUNITY ALERT: LOCAL THIEVES TERRORISE PENSIONER IN HER HOME

first_imgCOMMUNITY ALERT: Gardaí are hunting a three-man gang of local criminals who terrorised a 75-year-old Donegal woman in her home at the weekend.The victim was attacked at her home in the townland of Ranny, a remote area outside Kerrykeel. She was assaulted during the incident and her phone line ripped out to prevent her using her panic alarm.Garda Inspector Michael Harrison told Donegal Daily that he believed the gang were local to the area. One of the three men, he said, was particularly aggressive.“This gang needed a car to get to this house because it is quite rural and the three men had local accents,” said the Inspector.“We’ve already had three calls from members of the public and they have been very very helpful.“But we need more information. I need to know if anyone saw a car in that area between 9pm and 11pm on Saturday night. “These people broke into the victim’s home around 9.50pm. They demanded money and when the lady said she didn’t have any, they ransacked the house, with one of the three was particularly aggressive.“I would appeal to anyone with information to contact us straight away.”The gang was made off without taking anything but the woman was left terrorised. One of the men wore a cream coloured top pulled over his face. The other two men had scarves and jumpers covering their face.How you can help:Anyone with information or who can assist with the investigation is asked to contact Milford Garda Station on 074-9153060, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

Half-time: Bolton 0 Brentford 0

first_imgAlan Judge missed the best chance of the first half as Brentford looked the better side in Neil Lennon’s first home game as Bolton manager.Bees midfielder Judge dragged a shot wide of the target after Moses Odubajo had beaten his man and crossed from the right.Alex Pritchard has been lively for Brentford but also missed a good chance to put them ahead.A nice move on 20 minutes culminated in Jota finding the on-loan Tottenham midfielder, who fired straight at Bolton keeper Andy Lonergan from 10 yards out.Jota had an effort saved in the opening couple of minutes, while David Button saved from Bolton’s Darren Pratley, who also sent a shot wide.And in the final seconds of the half, Judge had a shot tipped away by Lonergan and Jake Bidwell headed over from the resulting corner.Harlee Dean kept his place alongside Tony Craig at centre-back for Brentford – who have drawn their last two matches 0-0 – despite James Tarkowski being available again after suspension.Tarkowski is on the Bees bench along with fit-again duo Tommy Smith and Nico Yennaris. Brentford: Button, McCormack, Dean, Craig, Bidwell, Douglas, Odubajo, Pritchard, Judge, Jota, Gray.

Tips for sleeping well when markets are a nightmare

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The EPA released their ethanol and bio-fuel requirements last week and the estimates were close to expected results, so the market changed very little. Nothing else big happened, which made the market a little painful to watch as it generally drifted lower. Curious, I reviewed what I wrote a year ago to see if I could gain any insight. Interestingly, nearly every bullet point I wrote last year this week is relevant today except:Prices are $1/bu lessInstead of last year’s PED virus, this year we have the bird flu.No two marketing years are exactly the same, but it does seem that history may be repeating itself…. Here is my Market Commentary for May 30, 2014 CornThe planting progress compared to the last five years is on schedule and weather conditions across the Midwest have been good this week. The following are trends to keep an eye on:• End users have good coverage on through June-July, so don’t expect a rush to purchase August/September. The end users know that time is no longer on the side of the farmer.• Finished planting, farmers are looking for the opportunity to sell $5 corn again. But, without a weather scare, it is unlikely. A rally to $4.90 would be nice though but it’s not a given.• The corn board is showing technical signs it doesn’t want to rally. The market is showing a downward trend with July below $4.80. If prices break $4.60 it could grind lower as funds could sell out quickly.• Export demand is good, but not strong enough to meet supply still in farmer bins. Several elevator managers across the Midwest say a few farmers will hold corn waiting for $5 into new crop. If true, this could cause logistical issues at harvest.• Ethanol corn demand has been tricky. It has been strong and profitable, but some traders are suggesting that the amount of bushels being used could be only 95% of USDA estimates because refiners have become more efficient at the process.• The news in livestock is the PED virus shows no sign of being contained. Many wonder if this segment will use all that’s been estimated. One positive, feed ingredients remain strong relative to corn prices and the CA/TX Panhandle droughts are helping with demand.Corn values between $4.60 and $4.80 is not a sale or a buy. The market is looking for direction. There is still significant premium built in for the chance of some dry weather. Some have floated a national average of 170 per acre, while possible, I think it’s a bit early to know (it’s still May on the calendar). Remember the market will know what is going on in your fields before any of us truly have a handle on it. That is why it’s always a good idea to sell traditionally good values. That means looking back at 5- and 10-year averages, rather than using the mindset — “the market has to go up.”I have my prices in place with potential for some adjustments for the next two years. I’ve reviewed my farm operation expenses and understand the profit margins based upon these prices against yield averages/ranges. I have looked at historical markets and trends. At this time I’m not predicting another 2012 situation. I’m planning on the historical average where 80% of the time the market goes lower through summer. I’ve reduced risk and I know I’m profitable for the next two years. If we get a drought and prices rally I’m happy with that because that will allow me to price 2015 and put protections in place for 2016.Reducing risk is the most important thing in my operation and my marketing strategy. My goal is not to pick the top on in the futures market, although it’s on my wish list every year. My strategy is to never wonder if I’m going to be profitable because of market conditions. Based upon 10-year yield results I know I am through 2015. I sleep very well at night…well until my 15-day old baby cries at 1am and again at 4 a.m. 2015I am surprised by all the similarities between this year and last. (Even my now one-year old had an ear infection this week, which kept me up last night.)What do you think is going to happen?I have 100% of my 2015 crop priced with futures at $4.71. I also have a good start on our 2016 crop priced at $4.65. Ideally, the market will rally, so I can sell more 2016, but I’m not sure that will happen.Another huge crop like last year, could create even bigger corn carryout. Many say this can’t happen, but the technology in those $250 seed bags is getting better and better every year. Our farm has seen tremendous yield growth the last two years (during good weather conditions), so I think it’s certainly a possibility. However, it’s still early, anything is still possible. I mean, $3 corn is possible if conditions are right and if they aren’t well $5 could still be in the cards Farmers need to focus on reducing their riskWhile weather conditions change and market prices move unpredictably, one thing that is consistent year to year in our marketing strategy — reducing our farm operation’s risk and staying profitable. My goal each year isn’t to pick the top of the futures market (even though I try to). My goal is to never worry if the farm will be profitable due to shifting marketing conditions. Historically, 10-year yield result averages indicate I will be profitable in 2015. So, I sleep very well at night — when my little kids let me.Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE.  Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process.  After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits.  A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations. Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.  All of these investment products are leveraged, and you can lose more than your initial deposit.  Each investment product is offered only to and from jurisdictions where solicitation and sale are lawful, and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations in such jurisdiction.  The information provided here should not be relied upon as a substitute for independent research before making your investment decisions.  Superior Feed Ingredients, LLC is merely providing this information for your general information and the information does not take into account any particular individual’s investment objectives, financial situation, or needs.  All investors should obtain advice based on their unique situation before making any investment decision.  The contents of this communication and any attachments are for informational purposes only and under no circumstances should they be construed as an offer to buy or sell, or a solicitation to buy or sell any future, option, swap or other derivative.  The sources for the information and any opinions in this communication are believed to be reliable, but Superior Feed Ingredients, LLC does not warrant or guarantee the accuracy of such information or opinions.  Superior Feed Ingredients, LLC and its principals and employees may take positions different from any positions described in this communication. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.
