UNSUNG: The Ministry of Post and Telecommunications

first_imgIn one of the classes I teach at a local university, I asked my students to explain the role of the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications or MoPT in Liberia. Out of 23 students, only ONE student was able to provide a response substantial enough to be considered the answer. Her response was: “In addition to handling postal activities of Liberia, the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications is the policy maker of the ICT sector. ICT here is an umbrella word for telecommunications, radio and TV broadcasting, etc.” The rest of the class responded with an “I don’t know” or that the Ministry is merely the “Post Office” of Liberia.I find it very interesting how many Liberians between the ages of 18 to 45 do not know the role of the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications or many of the other ministries. Obviously, this is because people of this generation rarely use the post office; they email, Skype, or just do everything on Facebook. And it seems that many believe that the MoPT has been attenuated since the creation of the Liberia Telecommunication Authority. So, if that’s the case, why does this ministry exist? Why can’t it be changed to the Ministry of Science, Technology and Industry as I suggested in one of my previous articles? The answer to these questions will be left for another article. Today, I have decided to take an evenhanded approach to bringing light, in a more telling manner, to the “UNNOTICED” progress that has been made by a government institution.I remember returning to Liberia a few years ago and seeing a Ministry as a refugee camp where dirt was thrown from upper level floors to the middle of the complex below. Today, the building is revamped, postal services have been rekindled, and mail boxes can be retrieved or bought, to name a few. But, there are few other things that one must give the administration and its staff additional credit for. Firstly, the Ministry’s Expedited Mail Services (EMS) now effectively delivers mail in FIVE working days and packages in EIGHT working days.Secondly, the ministry’s regular mailing services work but I take the liberty to surmise that the plurality of mail being handled tend to be particularly international. Thirdly, within the premises of the Ministry you will also find, Western Union, Money Gram and an IB Bank depot, an added convenience and new experience for the customer. Most noticeable is the professional attitude of the staff; something you don’t find at other government agencies. In fact, the Ministry has a customer service desk to accommodate the needs of customers.The Ministry should be credited for developing the country’s ICT policy giving us a roadmap and guide to achieving a modern ICT sector for national development. But reigning paradigms do need to be adjusted to reflect the changes of time, hence, the ICT policy may need to be updated soon. For example, the IT world now speaks of Cloud Computing, Open Source Software, Green Computing, Quantum Computing etc. What is our policy on these technologies? The corollary of failing to adjust to the changes of time is that economic, social, cultural, and political life suddenly becomes even more challenging. Our ICT sector needs to make with sufficient rapidity the sweeping, transformative choices it demands– a modern approach unshackled from the inconveniences of politics and corruption, the “metastasis” which plagues every nadir of our society and threatens development. We need policies that will transmogrify our ICT sector making it a more viable one.In a country like Liberia encumbered by the lack of infrastructure, illiteracy, and several other challenges, demand for new capabilities and services is often best met by utilizing generation-leaping technologies (for example the development of open source software), a phenomenon that is helping to drive a large global craving for landmark technological innovation. I am not proposing a re-conceptualization of the current paradigms. And I am in no way attempting to co-opt the verve and urgency for a new ICT paradigm but rather my aim is only to create awareness in this realm. In recent times, the Ministry in collaboration with the Civil Service Agency (CSA) of Liberia created the Chief Information Officer, Republic of Liberia (CIO) “regime”. Subsequently, the Ministry put up and advertisement for the CIO position at various government institutions. Personally, I had hoped to see COUNTY CIOs instead of CIOs of government institutions, since those institutions already have IT Director positions. A County CIO with mandate to champion ICT in his/her county would at the very least kindle a national approach to ICT integration in Liberia, I would assume.Another development at the Ministry is the setting up of a Project Management Office within its premises. I understand this is done in collaboration with LTA via a WARCIP project being funded by the World Bank. I cannot give you details on this since I stopped following its developments for some time. But it is my hope that this initiative is successful.While we acknowledge the achievements and progress being made at the MoPT, I personally still maintain, as I wrote in a previous article that this ministry should be changed to a Ministry of Science, Technology and Industry. Such a ministry will enable Liberians to become PROSUMERS and not just consumers. PROSUMERs are those who produce and consume what they produce. This approach could ignite a viable manufacturing industry and provide jobs for our youthful population and those who our educational system has failed.This can be done without any significant personnel changes as the current minister, I have been told, has vast experience in industry and people familiar with his services to government have informed me that he made significant strides with regard to industry when he once served at the Ministry of Commerce.Also, I strongly believe that an agency that champions ICT should be instituted where an “empowered” CIO becomes the head and bring some sanity to ICT in government in Liberia. A courier service that competes with the likes of DHL and FedEx could also be set up to handle “postal affairs”.  And this “courier service” would embark upon 21st century approaches to delivering mail. That is creating a “digital post office” in rural areas, allowing our folks in those areas to be able to communicate with the families abroad, digitally. For example, set up a Digital Post Office that allows Ma Juah or others who can’t afford a camera phone, to send a photo of herself to her son in Sweden, who she hasn’t seen in years A low cost generator, at least five computers with scanners, printers, a low cost camera at each “Digital Post Office” could make this a reality!All of what I have discussed in today’s article may not be all that the MoPT has achieved in recent times. In fact, I believe much of what they’ve accomplished has been omitted, inadvertently in this article. But I felt it necessary to write about this ministry today, simply because 22 out of 23 students could not tell me the role of the MoPT and many Liberians only know it for its postal services. I also believe it is one of the many UNSUNG institutions of Government. I hope this article provides new insight!Until next week, Carpe diem!!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Teen mechanic killed in Mandela Avenue accident

first_imgA 17-year-old mechanic is now dead after a motor car struck him around 20:40h on Saturday while he was attempting to cross Mandela Avenue, Georgetown.Police investigations, so far, have revealed that motor car PRR 7624 was proceeding east along Mandela Avenue when pedestrian Jhamallie Miles wasAccident victim: 17-year-old Jhamille Milesattempting to cross the road.

He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.The Police said that the 35-year-old driver, Lennox De Nobrega of Church Street, Georgetown was in custody assisting with investigations. It is reported that De Nobrega’s blood alcohol limit was 0.22 per cent, which was below the legal limit.Miles’s mother, Yonette Ridley, said that she received a call around 22:34h Saturday informing her that her son has been in an accident and has been rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital.“My friend call me and tell me that Jhamille was in an accident and that they rush him to the hospital and that I should hurry up and come to the hospital.

The Police said that they have to wait on the post-mortem before they can do anything else,” the grieving mother said.Ridley told Guyana Times Miles came home earlier in the evening and got dressed to head out with his friends.

first_imgCoroner John CannonURGENT BREAKING NEWS: THE Co Donegal coroner has issued an urgent warning after two men died and a third man was rushed to hospital after consuming contaminated alcoholic drinks.John Cannon was speaking after he opened the inquests into the deaths of two men. The third man was treated at Letterkenny General Hospital. He believes the drink was either poitin or contraband ‘fake’ drinks.Mr Cannon made the public warning, fearing that other people may consume alcoholic drinks contaminated with deadly chemicals, and most likely illegally-made or contraband products.The cases related to Denis Boyle, of Belcruit, Meenbanad, Burtonport who died on December 18 2013 and Rimantas Grigaliumas, also of Meenbanad, Burtonport, who died three weeks ago on March 13.The Coroner was concerned that the cause of death in both cases were similar in being alcohol related with an exceedingly high level of poisonous contaminant.The evidence given at the inquest held in Letterkenny by investigating Gardaí stated that both men had been drinking heavily immediately before their deaths.The Coroner said the toxic and poison range of Methanol is 100-125 mg/dl and in one of those deaths the Methanol level was five times higher – at 585mg/dl.Sergeant Bridget McGowan indicated to the court that a third person had been admitted to Letterkenny General Hospital and Garda investigations are continuing but it was believed this serious illness may have also been caused by Methanol or some other contaminant.Coroner Mr Cannon stated: “The fact that such substance such as methanol and other toxic ingredients are used to either corrupt or debase or make impure an alcoholic beverage to pretend a taste or potency of its quality in order to make it more marketable in an unlawful underground market is potentially lethal and dangerous to public health.“The toxicological analysis of the sample analysed by the State Laboratory in relation to these deans is catastrophically alarming and it is important that the public is aware and warned of the existence of poisonous alcohol availability in the public place.“This potentially catastrophic alcohol is either a home brew, like poitin, or it may be available as cheap illegally imported alcohol with the pretence of conventional branded names of well known distilleries. It appears to be easily obtained and as such is a serious public health issue.“There are almost twice as many deaths due to alcohol in Ireland compared to all other drugs combined. More than 100 deaths every year in Ireland are directly attributable to alcohol. In 2012 4015 people aged under 30 were discharged from hospital with chronic diseases which were alcohol related. It behoves us to highlight and warn the general public on such matters.”CORONER’S WARNING AFTER 2 MEN DIE AND THIRD TAKEN TO HOSPITAL AFTER DRINKING ‘CONTAMINATED’ ALCOHOL was last modified: April 4th, 2014 by John2Share 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:alcohol warningDEATHSDonegal coronerJohn Cannonlast_img read more

Chelsea star Diego Costa responds to China transfer talk

first_img Diego Costa celebrates scoring for Chelsea against Middlesbrough 1 Chelsea striker Diego Costa says he will decide his own future – that does not necessarily mean a move to China.Costa scored his 20th Premier League goal of the season as Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 on Monday night to move within three points of the title.The 28-year-old striker has been repeatedly linked with a lucrative move to Tianjin Quanjian in the Chinese Premier League since January.Costa told South American broadcasters DirecTV Sports: “I am the owner of my future and it does not mean that I am going to China.”Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has insisted the “will of the player” is important in the future of any of his players.And Costa has previously admitted agitating for a return to Atletico Madrid.He has two years remaining on the contract signed when he joined from Atletico for £32million in July 2014.Speculation over a move was at its peak in January when Costa missed the trip to Leicester after apparently having his head turned by a mega money offer from Tianjin.Conte publicly stated his absence on that occasion was due to a back injury and the rumours subsided but resurfaced last week.It was suggested a £76m transfer had been agreed, but Tianjin took to Weibo – China’s equivalent of Twitter – to deny any negotiations had taken place.And Conte last Friday did not clarify the situation, calling on Costa and all his players to maintain their focus on completing the season with silverware.Chelsea have three games to win the Premier League and can do so with victory at West Brom on Friday night.The Blues also play Arsenal in the FA Cup final on May 27.last_img read more


first_imgUCD manager Collie O’Neill has stoked the flames ahead of their return clash with Finn Harps on Friday night by accusing Ollie Horgan’s side of timewasting.A disappointed O’Neill was interviewed by 98FM after the match last Friday – and while he conceded there’s not much between the sides – he blasted Harps for timewasting in the first-half.O’Neill said, “It’s funny to see timewasting in the first-half of a game which is a two-legged clash. “You would need officials to be stronger and stamp it out, but there’s no law against it and they got away with it.“We were disappointed by it though, and it absolutely ruined the flow of the game and it was difficult to build momentum.O’Neill said he expected similar tactics next weekend – but said his side will really need to roll up their sleeves and battle if they want to get anything next week at Finn Park.O’Neill’s comments won’t come as a surprise to Harps as he previously slammed Ollie Horgan’s charges for their physicality during a 1-0 win in the summer. O’Neill said Harps had reduced the encounter to a ‘wrestling’ match.Harps will need no extra motivation on Friday night – but his comments will again be not well received by those at Finn Park. UCD MANAGER LAMENTS FINN HARPS FOR TIMEWASTING DURING FIRST-LEG was last modified: October 29th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:newsSportlast_img read more

For love of print

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Dan Armitage, host of Buckeye Sportsman, Ohio’s longest running outdoor radio showI welcomed the editor of Outdoor Life magazine, Anthony Licata, on my radio show recently and we had a frank discussion about the role of print in today’s outdoors media. My favorite of the former Big Three outdoor publications that included Sports Afield and Field & Steam recently went quarterly, meaning subscribers now receive their copies of Outdoor Life four times each year instead of monthly. When I inquired why, the main reason was reader interest, said Licata. He revealed that readers were asking for more narratives, or “Me and Joe”-type articles that tell a tale and take longer (read that: more space) to tell. The new issues are 100-plus pages long, and will, he said, contain plenty of such content.“For example,” he said, “an angler who wants to learn how to tie a Clouser fly now goes to You Tube to learn how” and doesn’t rely on magazines to offer such content. “We had to change with the times,” he added. “And we think we’ve taken the right path.”I hope Licata is right. I like nothing more than sitting down in my favorite easy chair with a magazine or newspaper in my lap for a relaxing read. That’s especially true of outdoor magazines.As an aside, my first hope of ever becoming an outdoor writer came from the pages of Outdoor Life the summer of 1966 when, at age 12, I discovered in its hallowed pages an article on fishing in Ohio titled “My Panfish on Light Tackle Kick.” When I noted it had been penned by a writer named Erwin Bauer who lived one suburban neighborhood over from mine, it was a watershed moment for me. I realized I didn’t have to live in Montana, Maine or Florida to make a living writing about the outdoors. If he could do it, so could I.One of the benefits of being married to a librarian, my wife last Christmas presented me with an original copy of that Outdoor Life issue, a gift I cherish. I didn’t ask if she located it in the classified section of a print magazine or online. 419er Archers Celebrate RangeA new archery range is now open at Maumee Bay State Park, located at 1400 State Park Road, Oregon. The entrance to the range is just past the park office on Park Road 1. On the range, archers will find seven shooting lanes with a combination of static bag targets and 3D targets. Use of the range is free, and the hours of operation are sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. Shooters are reminded that only field points are allowed, no broadheads.The construction of the range was completed through a partnership between the ODNR Division of Wildlife and the ODNR Division of Parks and Watercraft and was funded by Ohio hunting and fishing license sales and monies generated by the Pittman-Robertson Act. The Pittman-Robertson Act was enacted by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1937 and puts an 11% federal excise tax on sporting arms, handguns, ammunitions, bows and arrows.For more information on Ohio’s shooting sports opportunities, or to find a range near you, visit Click on the “Hunting, Trapping and Shooting Sports” tab, then click on “Shooting Ranges.” Beaver and otter trapping drawings heldOhio trappers are invited to participate in special drawings Saturday, Oct. 13, for public land beaver and river otter trapping opportunities. A list of public land trapping opportunities available at the lottery is posted at under “Controlled Hunting and Trapping Events.” Interested trappers will be required to come to one of the five wildlife district offices, where registration begins at 11 a.m. and the drawing to begin at 12 p.m. For more detailed information, visit Fall turkey hunting counties increaseThanks to three counties being added — Erie, Hancock and Lucas — Ohio hunters can pursue wild turkeys in a record 70 counties this autumn during a six-week season that opens Saturday, Oct. 13 through Sunday, Nov. 25. Gobblers, poults and hens are legal game during the fall wild turkey season, but only one turkey of either sex may be harvested during the season. A valid Ohio hunting license and a fall turkey hunting permit are required to participate in the autumn opportunity that is open from 30 minutes before sunrise until sunset daily. Shotguns using shot, as well as crossbows and longbows, are permitted, and turkeys must be checked by 11:30 p.m. on the day the bird is harvested.Hunters must make their own game tag to attach to a turkey, and can use any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time, and county of the kill. Go to the Turkey Hunting Resources page at for more information on changes to the game check process.Also, all successful hunters must report their turkey harvest using the automated game-check system, which is available online and by phone seven days a week, including holidays. Hunters with a turkey permit have three options to complete the game check:Online at;Call 877-TAG-ITOH (824-4864); orVisit a license agent. A list of agents can be found at or by calling 800-WILDLIFE (945-3543).Landowners exempt from purchasing a turkey permit, and others not required to purchase a turkey permit, cannot use the 877-TAG-ITOH option. Landowners and others not required to obtain a permit have the following game-check options:Online at;Visit a license agent; orCall 866-703-1928 for operator assisted landowner game-check (a convenience fee of $5.50 applies).The Division of Wildlife advises turkey hunters to wear hunter orange clothing when entering, leaving, or moving through hunting areas to remain visible to others. The list of open counties and other details regarding fall wild turkey hunting can be found in the 2018-2019 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations or at Hunting Seasons Get UnderwayIn addition to fall turkey hunting opening on Oct. 13, the statewide youth waterfowl hunting season will be held Oct. 6 and 7, followed by the regular statewide woodcock (Oct 12) and grouse (October 13) hunting seasons. Oct. 13 also marks the start of waterfowl hunting in the popular Lake Erie Marsh Zone, when the season opens for geese, ducks, coots and mergansers. Visit for details.last_img read more
