Red Lion FC under ‘New Management’

first_imgLiberia’s football chief Musa Bility has disclosed that Red Lions FC has been placed under new management owing to the management’s decision not to continue its campaign in the CAF Confederation Cup.He told newsmen last Tuesday that the football house has made the decision in consultation with the Ministry of Youth & Sports.Mr. Bility said after reviewing the impact and fine on the country because of Red Lions late financial constraint that could lead to a withdrawal, the LFA has placed the team under its management, while Ministry of Youths and Sports has promised to lobby for funds to ensure the team’s participation in the second round-leg.Youth and Sports Minister Eugene Lenn Nagbe indicated his fullest support to Red Lions and FC BYC which is in compliance to an order given by the Chief Patron of Sports, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.He clarified that the support to the teams will come from sponsorship by business institutions and others.Minister Nagbe said the Red Lions FC and C.S Constantinois’ game will come on as scheduled on Friday, February 28, 2014 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium at 4:00pm.“We will ensure that the game is played on Friday to save the image of the country, as we learnt the Algerian team will be in the country this week…we will meet the team at the airport, accommodate them and will give our players their per diem,” Minister Nagbe said.Meanwhile, eighty percent (80%) of Fatu FC, which is now called Red Lions FC, was purchased on November 8, 2013 for US$10,000.00.Former President Ansu Dorleh said he regrets the decision of the LFA to place Red Lions under its management, but said negotiation is ongoing with Rockson Colloe, President/CEO of Red Lions-Liberia to find a common ground.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Last Well Dedicates Hand-Pumps

first_imgAbdul Hafiz Koroma, The Last Well’s Vice President for International Affairs and Strategic Partnerships. Wrong captionThe Last Well, a non-charity Christian organization based in Rockwall, Texas, United States of America (USA), has begun dedicating its hand-pumps and wells projects in the country.The dedication ceremony, according to Abdul Hafiz Koroma, The Last Well’s vice president for International Affairs and Strategic Partnerships, is in accordance with the organization’s commitment to bring safe drinking water and the Gospel to Liberia by 2020.Koroma, who led a team of government officials, and other partners in the southeast, said the entity and partners will in the coming days commission and inspect ongoing hand-pump projects in Grand Kru, Grand Gedeh, Bong, Gbarpolu, and Bomi, respectively.He made the disclosure recently at a press conference in Monrovia.He added, “Our mission is to provide access to safe drinking water to the entire nation of Liberia and offer the Gospel to every community we serve by 2020.”Koroma said the focus of the organization is to ensure that Liberians have access to safe drinking water, which is in line with the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #6.“We have also completed other projects in Maryland, Sinoe, River Cess, Grand Bassa, Grand Cape Mount Counties, but we want to ensure that our people have access to safe and clean drinking water by 2020,” Koroma said.He said that The Last Well and its partners are determined to reach their objective of providing every community with clean water in a 15-minute walk with every project serving no more than 600 people.The Last Well’s campaign began in 2009, and by 2015 clean water had been provided through the construction of wells in Bomi, Bong and Grand Kru counties through Last Well’s partnership with World Hope International and Water 4 Life.Other organizations assisting in the construction of wells in Margibi, Nimba, Grand Gedeh, Grand Bassa, Sinoe and River Cess counties, are Living Water International, Teamwork Africa, Word Sower Liberia, Vision Collaboration, Equip Liberia and Water of Life/CRCA.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Coalition preparing ground to set aside, rig 2020 elections – PPP

first_imgThe Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) believes that the APNU/AFC coalition is preparing to either set aside or rig next year’s March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections.Government-nominated GECOM Commissioners Desmond Trotman, Vincent Alexander and Charles CorbinThis comes in light of a revelation following Tuesday’s statutory meeting that the Government-nominated Commissioners at the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) are attempting to disenfranchise thousands of Guyanese. One way in which they are seeking to do this is by removing more than 20,000 persons from the voters’ list after they failed to uplift their National identification (ID) cards since 2008.According to the PPP in a statement on Wednesday, the Government Commissioners are shamelessly attempting to reinstitute the use of an ID card as a qualification to vote – a measure that the current GECOM Chair, Retired Justice Claudette Singh, had ruled was illegal and unconstitutional back in 1998 in the Esther Pereira case.Pereira, a PNC supporter, had petitioned the High Court to set aside the results of the 1997 elections. Justice Singh ruled that the requirement for voters to have a voter ID card in 1997 was ultra vires Articles 59 and 159 of the Constitution (despite a parliamentary agreement to use the cards).Moreover, the Opposition went on to point out that the removal of names from the Official List of Electors (OLE) simply because these persons did not uplift their ID cards is illegal and contrary to the recent ruling of Chief Justice Roxane George.Back in August, the Chief Justice ruled that persons cannot be removed from the voters’ list unless they are dead or otherwise disqualified to vote under Article 159 (2) (3) or (4).“From the foregoing, it is clear that the APNU/AFC is preparing the ground either to set aside the entire elections as illegal and unconstitutional, when they lose, or by rigging the elections by disenfranchising tens of thousands of Guyanese electors,” the PPP contended in the missive.The Opposition noted that the Government-nominated Commissioners at GECOM continue to obstinately pursue an agenda to disenfranchise the Guyanese electorate and deny them their democratic and constitutional right to vote for a government of their choice at the 2020 polls.This agenda, the party noted, is more so reflected in their other latest proposal to highlight on the OLE, the names of persons who did not participate in the now scrapped House-to-House Registration exercise but are on the Preliminary List of Electors (PLE).Even more ridiculous, the PPP outlined is the fact that they want those persons who did not re-register to now come forward and do a “verification” and if this is not done, it could result in their names being highlighted on the OLE.Government Commissioner Vincent Alexander had explained on Tuesday that this would be done to put staff at the polling stations on “high alert” on the March 2, 2020 elections day to ensure no multiple or substitute voting takes place.But according to the PPP, “These ingenious measures are clearly intended to unlawfully empower GECOM staff on Elections Day to illegally disenfranchise tens of thousands of registered electors. These proposals are not only outrageous and unsound, but they are absolutely illegal as they are not provided for in any of the statutory processes, nor can they be the lawful basis to prevent a registered elector from voting”.To date, the Opposition noted that GECOM has not even yet explained how the data generated by the House-to-House Registration exercise, that is some 370,000 registrants, will be merged into the PLE or how it would become the subject of the ongoing 42-day Claims and Objections process, which commenced on October 1.“These are important statutory processes imposed by law to safeguard the integrity of the OLE and vital to the delivery of credible elections. Instead of working out the details of these important processes and making them public, the Government Commissioners continue to pursue mechanisms to contaminate, pervert and illegitimatise the electoral machinery,” the PPP asserted.Nevertheless, the Opposition assures Guyanese that it will continue to expose these mischievous endeavours and struggle to correct them as the party continues the battle for democratic, free and fair elections in March 2020.last_img read more

Saudi thumping offers little hope for Asian upturn in Russia

first_imgIn the 16 years since Japan and South Korea hosted the tournament, with the latter reaching the semi-finals, they have each only made it beyond the group stages once, in 2010.Frenchman Philippe Troussier took Japan to the last 16 on home soil in 2002 but believes they have “no chance” of making the knockout phase this time despite avoiding the tournament favourites in their group.Japan sacked coach Vahid Halilhodzic in April but the decision to hire Akira Nishino has failed to inspire an immediate turnaround in fortunes, with warm-up friendly defeats against Ghana and Switzerland.“Even if they play with (Jose) Mourinho or Arsene Wenger, it would be so difficult for Japan to get to the last 16,” Troussier told AFP.Halilhodzic’s unwillingness to use some of Japan’s star names such as Keisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa resulted in his dismissal.However, even with their return, Japan lack the individual talent available to their opponents in Group H. Colombia boast the talent of James Rodriguez, Poland can field Robert Lewandowski and Liverpool’s Sadio Mane is the star man for Senegal.– Spurs star Son –South Korea do have one outstanding talent in Tottenham’s Son Heung-min.Son scored 18 goals this season, including four in seven Champions League games, but has struggled to recreate that form when tasked with being the main man for his country.Defeats to Bosnia and Senegal either side of a drab 0-0 draw with Bolivia in warm-up games have done little to inspire confidence that South Korea can rival Mexico or Sweden for second place behind Group F favourites Germany.The Saudis’ poor showing in Moscow against an unfancied Russia also does not bode well for an Australian side that finished below them in qualifying and face the might of France on Saturday.Australia had to go through a mammoth 22-game qualifying campaign, including two playoffs, to make it to Russia.However, they too have undergone a recent change in coach with Bert van Marwijk, who took the Netherlands to the final in 2010, inspiring an upturn in fortunes with recent wins against the Czech Republic and Hungary.Despite a myriad of problems including cancelled warm-up friendlies and Nike’s decision to stop supplying boots due to US sanctions, Iran may provide the Asian confederation’s best chance of registering a win.Carlos Queiroz’s men stormed through qualifying undefeated in 18 games, conceding just five goals in the process.Queiroz’s defensive set-up frustrated Nigeria and Argentina four years ago and their opening game against Morocco on Friday offers an early chance to make an impression before tougher tasks against Spain and Portugal.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Asian anguish: Saudi Arabia’s 5-0 thrashing by Russia got Asia’s World Cup off to a terrible start © AFP / Patrik STOLLARZSAINT PETERSBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 15 – Asia’s quartet of World Cup representatives failed to deliver a single victory four years ago and hopes of a turnaround in Russia are low, with continental powerhouses Japan and South Korea struggling for form.Five nations qualified from the Asian confederation for the 2018 World Cup but Saudi Arabia’s 5-0 thumping at the hands of the hosts in the tournament opener followed the pattern of miserable performances and results for Asian sides in Brazil.last_img read more
