NPFL players don’t need to travel during breaks – Obuh

first_img Loading… “They really need to understand that travelling is not the best option at every point in time but if they want to travel, they must make the necessary arrangements. “Most especially, those who have a car they need to hire provisional drivers for long trips, and they will be safe. Or at most, they use air flight.” Aside from the recent abductions and accidents involving players, clubs in the Nigerian top-flight have been the victims of robbery attacks on the road this season. In curbing this menace, the former Kwara United and Enugu Rangers coach urged clubs to make provision for security personnel before embarking on a trip by road. “There have been a lot of kidnappings and accidents around the country, but we’re focusing on the players now because of the recent happenings,” he continued. “In all these things, what we’re missing is security. I will even advise if it’s possible they should hire security for their trips.

Football activities in Nigeria, including the NPFL, were suspended last Wednesday as the country continues to work in containing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and thus, granted the players permission to leave their clubs. George, 26, died along Benin-Agbor expressway when his car bumped into a stationary truck while Enyimba’s Ojo was abducted alongside Abia Warriors’ Benjamin Iluyomade on Benin-Owo highway. In avoiding similar incidents in the future, Obuh believes players should be restricted from travel during breaks and measures should be in place if they are to embark on any. “The players and the officials, including the coaches during the league season have enough risks of travelling,” Obuh told Goal. “If para-adventure you have no opportunity not to travel, most especially during this 14-day quarantine, immediately you hear there is a break you don’t just have to jump into the car and start travelling. “It is not the best for the players. These players don’t even want a day off, because once there’s a break they already have plans of travelling. “That is why I still want to believe they really need to be orientated.last_img read more

Govt and EU must assist Donegal farmers for fair prices – Senator Mac Lochlainn

first_imgDonegal Senator and Sinn Féin Seanad Spokesperson on Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn today called on the EU Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan to work with the Irish Government to assist Donegal’s farmers in crisis.He has pleaded with the Minister to ensure a fair price from the big food processors and multiples supermarkets for our primary producers.Commissioner Hogan was appearing before the Oireachtas Agriculture Committee to address the issues facing Irelands farming community and the threat of Brexit to the agri-food sector. Senator Mac Lochlainn said he brought to Commissioner Hogan’s attention today the reality for so many in our farming community in Donegal and across this State.“From tillage farmers to dairy farmers and from the beef to the sheep sectors, there is a real crisis. While the poor weather this year and the devaluation of the sterling currency have made things worse, the common denominator in all of this is the poor price that our farmers; our primary producers are getting for their produce.“I challenged the Commissioner to step up to the place on ensuring that the big food processors and multiples supermarkets are held to account on prices. The real solution to this in a single European market lies with the European Union and Commission”.“In response, Commissioner Hogan referred to the ongoing work of the EU’s “Agricultural Markets Task Force” currently examining how farmers can be assisted in dealing with the impacts of price volatility and currency fluctuations. The Task Force is to report back soon with their findings and recommendations. “Sinn Féin will await those findings but we will continue to demand price regulation with teeth of these profiteering sectors”.He concluded “I also took the opportunity to call on the Commissioner, working in partnership with the Irish government to provide more financial aid and assistance to our farming sectors in real crisis”.Govt and EU must assist Donegal farmers for fair prices – Senator Mac Lochlainn was last modified: October 20th, 2016 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more

Communication objectives

first_imgThe 2010 National Communication Partnership has the following key strategic communication objectives:A national, nation building perspectiveIn elaborating a vision for 2010 as a catalyst for change we need to look beyond that year and be informed by:Who we are; how we want to see ourselves then and others to see us; how we want ourselves to have changed; what message we want 2010 visitors to hearLinkages between 2010 and milestones of our history marking where we have come from (2010 as the twentieth anniversary of the start of negotiations and release of Nelson Mandela) – where we are going (2014 is the end of the Second Decade of Freedom)African World CupCreative attention will have to be given to building African solidarity, and to the communication of 2010 as an African World Cup, in the continent and globally.Working with relevant institutions such as the AU Commission and the NEPAD Secretariat, and by building communication partnership in the SADC region and more broadly across the continent, appropriate strategies will need to be developed to ensure that the continent as a whole leverages the positive mood created by preparations for, and the actual hosting of, the 2010 World cup.Leverage for marketing and accelerated development2010 brings domestic and global media platforms; infrastructural development; and visitors on a scale that creates immense opportunities to establish linkages across government and the private sector to enhance development efforts through investment promotion; international marketing; tourism and government programmes.This makes 2010 – and the build-up towards the World Cup – a platform for integrated communication by government, IMC, Dept of Sports and Recreation, TISA, Proudly South African, SA Tourism and the private sector in addition to those directly concerned with the World Cup.Mobilising the nationMaking a success of 2010 cannot be done by the football authorities and government on their own – it needs the participation of everyone. There will be need of a strategy of involvement that will engage all South Africans in all their sectors in preparation for 2010 and as hosts to the visitors who come for the tournament.Creating a favourable environment – setting the agendaIt will be critical in the coming period, over the next three to four years, to set the agenda of public discourse concerning South Africa in particular in the foreign media so that the communication environment is more favourable to the achievement of our objectives.Learning from the communication experience of others – best practices and mistakes.The experience of other countries hosting major events like this has important communications lessons for us if married with our own perspective and character.last_img read more

Message By The Minister Of Foreign Affairs And Foreign Trade On UN Day

first_img1.       No one is  left  behind;2.       Sustainable development is put at the core of the agenda;3.       Economies are transformed so as to create  jobs and inclusive growth;4.       There is a  building of  peace and effective, open and accountable institutions for all;5.       A new global partnership is forged. Every year since 1948, the 24th of October has been celebrated globally as United Nations (UN) Day. This is in commemoration of the founding of the Organisation with the ratification of its Charter by the five (5) Permanent Members of the Security Council, namely: France, the People’s Republic of China, the former Soviet Union (now the Russian Federation), the United Kingdom and the United States of America.  As a member of the United Nations since independence, Jamaica is pleased to join with the International Community in celebrating United Nations Day which, this year, is being celebrated under the theme: “Global Progress”.The United Nations has remained true to its mandate in the more than six (6) decades since its inception and continues to be at the forefront in the quest for international peace and security, development and the promotion and protection of human rights.  It has also proved to be responsive to the dynamic global environment as the United Nation strives to address the new and emerging challenges of the 21st Century.  This is being advanced as the United Nations  sustains its role as a multifaceted global steward and  continues to lead the charge on issues such as climate change, sustainable development, health, disarmament, democracy and good governance- all while coordinating efforts for a safer and more just world.As a responsible member of the Organisation, Jamaica continues to contribute actively to the framing of the various aspects of its work.  Many Jamaicans have worked at senior levels in the Organisation thus making tangible contributions.  We also continue to participate in peacekeeping, as Jamaican policemen and policewomen serve as members in peacekeeping troops in various conflict areas of the world.  Here at home, we continue to value highly the support provided by the United Nations through the United Nations Resident Coordinator and the staff in the various UN offices, as they work to implement the cooperation programme provided through the United Nations Development Assistance Framework.We look forward to the deepening of such cooperation particularly as the United Nations will, in 2014, be paying particular attention to the concerns of Small Island Developing States.  As a Small Island Developing State, Jamaica welcomes the designation of 2014 as the International Year of SIDS and looks forward to the convening of the Third International Conference on SIDS also in 2014.The Organization, however, is not without its fair share of challenges. It has been forced to rethink its strategy in response to the changing global needs, particularly in the developing world. The Government of Jamaica, therefore, commends the United Nations on its recognition of the need for the elaboration of a Post-2015 Development Agenda that is universal, people-centered and sustainable.Jamaica is supportive of such an agenda as it should lead to an end to extreme poverty and allow for an inclusive and sustained path to prosperity.   The five big transformative shifts articulated in the Report of the UN Secretary-General’s High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which are also in line with the objectives of Jamaica’s Vision 2030 – National Development Plan, can assist in the achievement of development of all.  To ensure this, the five transformative shifts will require that: The Government of Jamaica commends the United Nations on its recognition of the need for the elaboration of a Post-2015 Development Agenda that is universal, people-centered and sustainable. Story Highlights Jamaica fully believes in the building and effective execution of global partnerships as these are key to ensuring global peace and development. We therefore welcome Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon’s proposal for a new UN Initiative in the form of a UN Partnership Facility, geared towards harnessing the full potential for partnerships with corporate society.In line with this, the Government of Jamaica has already forged its own Social Partnership Agreement in July 2013 with a range of stakeholders, including the trade unions, civil society and the private sector. The United Nations is therefore strategically placed to advance such global partnerships.As we commemorate the 68th anniversary of the entry into force of the UN Charter, it is our hope that the principles and the purposes enshrined therein will continue to be observed. I take this opportunity to reaffirm the firm commitment of the Government of Jamaica to the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter and to ensuring that the aims and objectives of this noble institution are advanced in fulfillment of the needs of both present and future generations.last_img read more

A white taxi-bus and a white Honda civic collided and the driver of the Honda was taken to hospital; his injuries are believed non-life threatening. One media account is that the taxi driver lost control and the ambulance was very long in getting to the scene of the smash-up which did clog traffic along the highway near Courtyard Plaza. Speed is also believed behind a traffic wreck last week, where a white sedan was found turned upside down in the bushes north of Maranatha High School on Millennium Highway.
