Agriculture Can Save Liberia, But How?

first_imgThe Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) released some grim statistics last week, showing a drastic rise in the country’s trade deficit.Our Business Correspondent, George Kennedy, quoting CBL’s figures for the first quarter of 2014, reported that Liberia’s trade deficit widened by a staggering 86.9 percent to US$77.0 million from US$41.2 million as at December, 2013.Total trade volume amounted to US$382.1 million with import receipts alone accounting for US$226.9 million. The CBL blames the widened trade deficit on a 4.2 percent decline in merchandise export earnings, couple with a 14.6 percent decline in merchandise import payments.Commodities export receipts declined by 25.1 percent to US$152.5 million in the review quarter, from US$159.1 million at the end ofDecember, 2013, which the CBL attributes largely on account of a 25.1 percent fall in rubber export earnings to US$30.2 million in March, 2014, from US$40.3 million in December, 2013.The CBL warned that weaker than expected growth prospects in the United States and struggling recovery in the Euro zone may perpetuate the decline in rubber prices in the near term.This drastic decline in earnings from the rubber sector was expected, as Liberia’s rubber planters, including the giants, Firestone, Liberia Agriculture Company (LAC), Salala Rubber Company (SRC) and Morris American Rubber (MAR),  recently reported huge losses due to sudden drop in world rubber demand.The iron ore sector also suffered heavy losses, owing to the corresponding decline in the demand for this commodity.  We recall that several months ago Sesa Goa, the Indian company which operates iron ore in Liberia’s Western Cluster, reported that it had reduced its operations by 80%, owing to drastic drop in demand for this commodity.What does all this tell us?  It tells us that we need to start focusing again on farming, which has consistently declined since the outbreak of the Liberian civil war, when there was massive destabilization and farmers found it impossible to work their farms.The situation has, most unfortunately, not improved over the past eight and a half years of the current government.  Why? Because President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has had bad luck with her Agriculture Ministers.  This is not because of the lack of money.  The international community, realizing how much devastation the war inflicted upon this country, including its farms, rallied enthusiastically to the rescue not only with food aid but with finances, too, to help revive Liberia’s agriculture.  Barely two months before he was let go by President Sirleaf, her first Agriculture Minister, Dr. Chris Toe, told the nation that a staggering US$100 million was available to boost Liberia’s agriculture.  That led the socio-political commentator, Mother Mary Brownell, to ask angrily in a letter to the Daily Observer Editor, “Where is the money?  We see no evidence of it anywhere.”  She was right.  At that point the nation was still importing most of its food.Under Ellen’s second Agriculture Minister, Dr. Florence Chenoweth, the situation has worsened, as Liberians continue to import  almost everything they eat, including bitterball!This newspaper has frequently pleaded with the Agriculture Ministry to flood the nation’s farms with agricultural extension agents, who would help the farmers utilize the benefits of research conducted at the Central Agricultural Research Institute CARI).  Nearly four years ago Minister Chenoweth said she was training extension agents to do just that.  Alas, the agents are nowhere to be found; andLiberia is still importing most of the rice it consumes, and meat and even vegetables!How shall agriculture SAVE Liberia?  By growing our own rice, meat and vegetables; and by investing heavily in tree crops, such as coffee, cocoa and rubber.  Ellen needs to find an Agriculture Minister who BELIEVES THAT LIBERIA CAN GROW HER OWN RICE, A MINISTER WHO POSSESSES THE KNOWLEDGE AND ENERGY TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. This alone would save the US$300 million we spend importing rice, and almost erase our balance of payments deficit.Our people already know how to grow bitterball, peanuts, pepper and other veggies.  We could even start growing carrots in Foya, Lofa County, and cattle in the southeast, beginning in Grand Cess, Grand Kru County and Foya.But you need an Agriculture Minister with the ENTHUSIASM seriously to engage our farmers and put them back to work: THAT’S HOW!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Nigeria’s Fuel Crisis—Why?

first_imgHow is it possible for Africa’s leading producer of petroleum to run short of fuel to power its motor vehicles, airplanes and even to keep open hospitals and key businesses? In conventional thinking, this should not and could never happen.Yet it has happened all too often in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country and one of its richest, thanks to its vast petroleum reserves.The primary reason for this, we strongly believe, is corruption and a seeming lack of love and respect for country on the part of many unscrupulous Nigerian businesspeople. It is these unprincipled and ruthless people who firmly believe that increasing their fat foreign bank accounts is more important than the welfare of the suffering Nigerian masses, the economic, industrial and financial success of the country, and its respectability among the comity of nations.Why do we say that? For these Nigerian fat cats, it is nothing short of an anathema (atrocity, disgrace) for Nigeria to have efficient and effective petroleum refining companies in which the country can refine its own oil and make it readily available to Nigerians and other peoples in the West African sub-region.The world knows that Nigerians are among Africa’s most intelligent, dynamic and progressive people. Nigerians are also aggressively entrepreneurial. That is why you find many Nigerian women with Bachelor and Master’s degrees selling market. These dynamic women ask themselves, “Why go stand in line looking for a job when I can make my own money and be my own boss by running my own business?”Most multinational corporations with branches in Nigeria are run not by pale faced foreigners, as we see everywhere in countries like Liberia. The offices of these multinationals are run by Nigerians—why? Nigerian Immigration, Labor and Commerce officials and institutions, unlike ours in Liberia, SERIOUSLY enforce the macroeconomic policies established by the Nigerian Federal and State governments. There is no fooling or joking around with this. If you want to do business in Nigeria—any business—it must be run by Nigerians and you must have Nigerian partners.This is why yes, you do find some rich foreigners in Nigeria, but you can be absolutely sure they are not alone. No. There are millions of rich Nigerians, too, who have a very serious stake—indeed the lion’s share—in their economy.But why are all these positive and real attributes not reflected in Nigeria’s prime industry, petroleum? Why have there not emerged serious minded Nigerian investors who can successfully run petroleum refineries? After all, following the collapse—due to persistent and unconscionable mismanagement of the national airline, Nigeria Airways—several Nigerian entrepreneurs have emerged to start successful regional airlines that effectively run the sub-region. Among these are Arik, MedView and Dana Air, all of which are wholly owned by Nigerians.So why are Nigerian entrepreneurs not manning the petroleum sector, too? Do they think they can make more money importing petroleum products? If so, then what about the fate of ordinary Nigerians—not only those whom the refineries would employ—but also those who must suffer the constant, outrageous and unexplainable indignity of standing in endless lines searching for petroleum that God has generously deposited beneath Nigerian soil and waters? We pray that the new Nigerian President—who history tells us has been in that office before—will make the efficient operations of ALL Nigerian refineries his number two priority. We say number two because we know that NUMBER ONE is defeating the country’s murderous menace—Boko Haram.And more besides, let President Mahammadu Buhari, when he takes office tomorrow, faithfully promise and swiftly fulfill that promise to the Nigerian people that NEVER AGAIN will they have to suffer and endure this monumental, embarrassing contradiction of being oil-rich, yet still enduring the indignity and agony of scrounging (begging) daily for oil.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

LNHA Ends 3-Day Workshop in Gbarnga City

first_imgSome of the student athletes at the seminarThe president of Liberia National Handball Association (LNHA), J. Mason Saweler, has called on athletes who underwent a three-day workshop for high school athletes in Gbarnga City, Bong County to put to use the knowledge they acquired from the training.Mr. Saweler told journalists that the training started was held January 16 thru 18, 2019 and was climaxed with few exhibition matches among athletes from the 10 schools that took part in the training.The association boss described the multitude of students that showed up for the game as surprising and that it showed how hungry those students are for the game. He called on them to take both their lessons and the game seriously.Terry Morgan headed the training aspect of the workshop and he described the performance of the 70 students from the 10 high schools as astounding. He urged them to take the training seriously if they wish to be counted among the best handball athletes nationally and internationally.Students from St. Martin’s Catholic, N. V. Massaquoi, St. Peter’s Episcopal, Muslim Youth Academy, and St. Mark’s Lutheran high schools were among the participants.Others were S. D. A, A. G. M, Dolokelen Gboveh, Alexander A. Andrew, and Bokalu Simi high schools.Morgan said physical education instructors from the 10 schools which students participated in the workshop were also trained by the rules governing handball so that they will continue to train students who have the passion for it.He said, “Because of the passion the students have for handball, we also trained PE instructors from each of the 10 schools that participated in the workshop about the rules of the sport and we call on the Ministry of Education to include the sport in its PE curriculum in their individual schools.”“Our reason for calling on PE instructors to include the sport in their individual school PE curriculum is because it would help to increase the athletes’ knowledge in the sport and promote the game in that part of the country,” he said.Morgan extended thanks to the National PTA Network which provided the sponsorship for the workshop.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Policeman in hot water for shooting Itaballi man

Lukaku on a brace as Belgium beat Panama

first_imgLukaku then converted assists from Kevin De Bruyne and captain Eden Hazard to secure victory in this Group G clash, with the Central Americans succumbing to a defeat in their first-ever match at the finals.Group rivals England will look to respond to Belgium’s win when they kick off their campaign against Tunisia but this was not entirely the statement of intent that Roberto Martinez’s side would have been hoping to make.A victory will do for a team who are, on paper at least, good enough to go far in Russia, especially after heavyweights Germany, Brazil and Argentina all slipped up over the weekend.-Unbeaten BelgiumBelgium are now unbeaten in 20 matches, although the nature of the first-half performance against weak opposition showed that Martinez’s men still have significant progress to make if they are to improve on quarter-final appearances at the last two major tournaments.To be fair to Martinez, the Spaniard had warned on the eve of this game that his side would not have it easy.Dries Mertens celebrates with Romelu Lukaku after putting Belgium in front against PanamaThe Central Americans lined up with a team of journeymen featuring five thirty-somethings. Jaime Penedo in goal is 36, while Blas Perez up front is 37. But while the Belgians had the younger, talented players, other factors played in Panama’s favour.The heat and humidity on Russia’s Black Sea coast was one, as was the fact their supporters greatly outnumbered those following the Belgians.The locals at the Fisht Stadium got behind the outsiders too, and they were given encouragement as Hernan Dario Gomez’s side competed well in the first period.Hazard pulled the strings when he could, although the Chelsea star was denied by Penedo in the 38th minute, having earlier found the side-netting when a slack back-pass from opposing captain Roman Torres gifted him the chance.At the other end, Panama tried to expose Belgium’s potential weaknesses at full-back. However, they struggled to score goals in qualifying and rarely looked capable of beating Thibaut Courtois.– Mertens strike –Belgium just needed a spark from somewhere, and they got it from Mertens in the 47th minute.The Napoli man’s cross looking for Lukaku was headed out by Torres and on by Fidel Escobar. But the ball dropped perfectly back to Mertens, whose volley from the right side of the box arced into the far corner.Romelu Lukaku celebrates after scoring against PanamaPanama sought to regroup and right-back Michael Murillo came surging forward to finally force a save from Courtois.But the gulf in class began to tell as Belgium doubled their lead midway through the second half. Hazard found De Bruyne, and his sumptuous cross with the outside of the right boot was headed in by Lukaku.With Panama forced to throw more bodies forward, they were punished on the break a quarter of an hour from the end.This time Hazard released Lukaku, and the Manchester United man beat Penedo to complete the scoring and take him to five goals at major tournaments, as Belgium get up and running. 0Shares0000Romelu Lukaku celebrates after scoring his first, and Belgium’s second, of the match in Sochi. Photograph: Patrick Smith – FIFA/FIFA via Getty ImagesSOCHI, Russia, Jun 18-  Romelu Lukaku netted a brace as a much-improved second-half performance gave Belgium an ultimately comfortable 3-0 victory over tournament debutants Panama in their World Cup opener in Sochi on Monday.A moment of inspiration from Dries Mertens set the Belgians on their way two minutes after the break, his volley breaking the deadlock after a rather flat first period. 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Allan Kabonge rejoins Masavu FC

first_img Tags: allan kabongemasavu FC Allan Kabonge has guided four clubs to promotion (file photo)Self proclaimed ‘best coach in the country’; Allan Kabonge has agreed to rejoin Entebbe based side Masavu FC.Kabonge who led Paidah Black Angels to promotion into the Uganda Premier league last season is the man that also led Masavu FC to the Promised Land in 2016/17 before they were relegated on the last day of last season.“I am happy that i am returning home, said Kabonge in a phone interview.“As usual, I am a teacher and I will teach my students to play football, enjoy, win games and get back to the Uganda Premier league.Kabonge who lucks the necessary qualifications to coach in the top tier continues to amaze the football fraternity as he promotes club after club.Previously, he has been at the helm of Aurum Roses, Onduparaka and Masavu and they attained promotion to the top tier of Ugandan football.Last season he was in charge of two Big league clubs, first having a troubled stint at Lira United before joining Paidah whom he guided to promotion via the play-offs.Whether his magic works again and he takes Masavu back to the top tier, remains a mystery but i trust very few can bet against it.Comments last_img read more
