LACC Says its Comptroller Resigned for ‘Fear’ of Audit

first_img– Advertisement – Former LACC comptroller J. Bernard Nagbe. Photo credit: FrontPage Africa Authorities of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) say it comptroller, J. Bernard Nagbe, resigned to escape being entrapped in a pending audit at that anti-graft entity.“The LACC is shocked and astounded by the abrupt, and unprofessional nature of the resignation of its former Comptroller, which occurred at the commencement of a financial and institutional audit being conducted by the General Audit Commission (GAC),” the LACC said in a statement signed by its Executive Director, Attorney Mohammed Fahnbulleh.It can be recalled that in his letter of resignation, dated on November 25, 2019, Nagbe cited delays in the payment of his salaries and benefits as reason for his resignation from the government.“I am constrained to tender my resignation on grounds of uncertainty with my salary and benefits. I am not receiving my remuneration on time and my service to the government and the people of Liberia is not for free. I owe my life, career and service to my country, but ultimately my family comes first.“I have never had this experience in my professional life and never am I prepared to endure this nonsense. I cannot and will never work without pay. Henceforth, I can no more continue this useless sacrifice to the LACC, the Liberian people and the governmentBut in sharp contrast to Nagbe’s statement, the LACC said their former comptroller did not resign over delayed salaries and benefits, but because of an “ongoing financial and institutional audit the GAC is conducting.”Atty. Fahnbulleh’s statement added, “The LACC, by this medium, emphatically clarifies to the public that all its employees, including its former comptroller, have consistently received their salaries up to September 2019.”He said despite the “unprofessional and unethical” nature of Nagbe’s resignation, the Board of Commissioners of the anti-corruption Watch dog, has accepted his resignation, with conditions.“Giving the critical nature of the role previously occupied by Nagbe, a role indispensable to the completion of the pending GAC audit, the BOC strongly advises its former comptroller to remain in-country, and to truly cooperate with the GAC for the speedy completion of the ongoing audit.Considering this, the LACC further represents that Nagbe’s action smacks of sabotage, subterfuge and ingratitude to the LACC given that he was one of the first employees of the Commission, since December 2008, and has for 11 consecutive years, received salaries, benefits and logistics as a senior staff of the Commission in a timely manner to date,” Atty. Fahnbulleh said.Meanwhile, the LACC has called on the public to know that as a government institution, it is not immune to the effects of an ailing economy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Raptors exec Ujiri says will stay in Toronto

first_imgUjiri has two years left on his contract with the Raptors, but ESPN reported this month that the Washington Wizards were pursuing him with an offer that included ownership equity in the club.Ujiri became the Raptors’ general manager in 2013 and team president three years later.One of Ujiri’s most pressing tasks now will be to retain the services of NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kawhi Leonard, who is expected to opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent.Ujiri said he is confident that Leonard will stay, even if he checks out the free agent market first. Leonard arrived via a trade from San Antonio last July after a season of growing discontent with the Spurs.“We’ll wait,” Ujiri said. “He’s our player and he’s a superstar on our team and we’ll wait on that.”He said he thought the team had “built a trust” with Leonard.“We’re really approaching it like we want to bring everybody back on this team,” Ujiri said. “That’s a priority for us.”Ujiri had little to say about the investigation by California authorities of a confrontation between Ujiri and a sheriff’s deputy after the Raptors’ championship-clinching game six victory over the Golden State Warriors.As Ujiri approached the court after the victory he was stopped by the deputy for not displaying court-access credentials, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.The deputy says Ujiri struck him, injuring his jaw.“I am confident about who I am as a person, my character and as a human being,” Ujiri said. “For now, I’ll just respect their process there and wait for the next steps.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri and family wave to the crowd during the NBA champion Raptors’ victory parade on June 17, 2019 © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / Vaughn RidleyLOS ANGELES, United States, Jun 26 – Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri says he’ll stay with the club to vie for another NBA championship, and he believes star forward Kawhi Leonard will, too.“I love it here,” Nigerian-born Ujiri said at a season-ending press conference in Toronto on Tuesday. “My family loves it here.

Bridge destroyed in Inishowen flooding remains in disrepair a year later

first_imgThe residents of a Carndonagh housing estate are calling for the urgent repair of a footbridge that has been left in a dangerous state since the floods of August 2017. The bridge behind Donagh Park was once used as a shortcut to Carndonagh Community Hospital and local primary schools. However, for the past year has remained damaged from the flooding, with a safety barrier toppled and rocks scattered across one side.Donagh Park Bridge“Donagh park has 45 houses and 30 children under the age of 12. There is nothing in place to keep kids safe from falling into the river,” said one concerned resident. A local petition is doing the rounds as residents call on Donegal County Council to repair the bridge and restore a safe crossing to Carndonagh’s amenities.Cllr Albert Doherty and local organisers Adam Hawes and Marty Brides are leading the petition with the hope that the area can be reopened as the new school year begins.Donagh Park BridgeDonagh Park BridgeBridge destroyed in Inishowen flooding remains in disrepair a year later was last modified: August 16th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarndonaghDonagh Park BridgeInishowenlast_img read more

The benefits of pregnancy diagnosis

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are entering an exciting time of the year for cow-calf producers. They have started or soon will be weaning their spring-born calves. Weaning is an excellent time to prepare the calf crop to become herd replacements or for future marketing opportunities by implementing health programs and transitioning to feed rations. It is also a great time to determine the pregnancy status of the breeding herd. Management practices for both these groups can go a long way to determine the ultimate profitability of herd.The factor that should ultimately sort a female to the keep or cull pen is pregnancy status. The three primary methods used in pregnancy diagnosis are rectal palpation, ultrasound evaluation, or blood testing. Each these methods can effectively diagnose the female’s pregnancy status when properly implemented. Obviously the preferred result is for the female to be pregnant. Pregnancy diagnosis is relatively inexpensive, especially when you consider the potential savings of expenses it facilitates.While variable costs such as feed have moderated somewhat lately, it is still fairly expensive to maintain a cow on an annual basis. Producers often fail to consider fixed costs such as machinery, buildings, management, and replacement animal expense. We do not have enough space in this article to debate a sample budget, but it is fair to say the annual carrying costs for a beef female can run from $700 to over $1,000 depending on the situation. An open female is not going to generate any income to help pay the bills.Carrying an open female over to the next year or the next breeding season only compounds the accumulation of expenses.In nearly every case, the producer would be better off selling the open female and replacing her with a bred female. This is particularly true of yearling females. If you can’t get a properly developed, healthy yearling heifer bred in a 60- to 90-day breeding season, sell her as a heavy feeder calf or finish her out to harvest weight. If she is sub-fertile as a yearling, she will likely have fertility problems as a mature female.At the risk of stating the obvious, the pregnant female is the foundation for any productive cow-calf operation. Hopefully the female will calve in a relatively short calving season that occurs during the months of the year that are best suited for your operation and time constraints. A pregnant female can also create some additional marketing opportunities for the producer.Now is an excellent time to evaluate your herd and consider marketing decisions for the fall. Young, high quality cattle backed by solid genetics are in demand with potential buyers. Yearling heifers bred artificially to proven calving ease sires are very marketable. It is also a great time to evaluate the body condition of potential sale animals and make nutritional adjustments to the animal’s diet in anticipation of a sale date. It is my experience that while prospective buyers may complain about overly fat breeding cattle, they certainly resist purchasing breeding cattle that are in thin body condition.One upcoming sale opportunity to consider is the 2017 Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s Replacement Female Sale on Nov. 24. Consignments for the sale are due to the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association by Oct. 2, 2017. Sale information can be obtained by contacting the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association at (614) 873-6736 or at their web site located at www.ohiocattle.org .last_img read more
