I saw something bad happening to Liberia, let’s pray for the president — Prophet Nigel Gaisie

The founder and leader of the Prophetic Hill Chapel, Prophet Nigel Gaisie has given an unpalatable revelation about Liberia.

 

The Prophet, though wasn’t specific, said what he saw about the country is very ugly and must not be played with.

 

In a Facebook post today, September 22, spotted by Modernghana News, the popular prophet called for a communal prayer for Liberia.

 

He prayed for the President, George Weah and the entire nation to be sustained and protected by the mercies of God.

 

“I saw something ugly happening to Liberia….Let the church pray…Let The President be Protected, may the entire nation be sustained by the mercies of God,” he wrote.

World Bank Director never blame Mahama for Ghana’s economic mess — Minority

The Minority Caucus in Parliament has rubbished recent media reports linking former President John Dramani Mahama to Ghana’s return to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

 

They challenged the reportage by Daily Guide Newspaper with the headline “Mahama Energy Sector Agreements Drowning Ghana-World Bank,” purporting to be the words of the World Bank Country Director, Mr. Pierre Laporte.

 

In a statement signed by John Jinapor, the Minority Ranking Member on the Mines and Energy Committee in Parliament and copied to Modernghana News on Thursday, September 22, he accused the NPP of Daily Guide’s spinning of the IMF director’s comment.

 

“The attention of the Minority in Parliament has been drawn to a Daily Guide publication with the headline “Mahama Energy Sector Agreements Drowning Ghana-World Bank.

 

“A careful reading of the story will reveal that at no point did the World Bank country director mention or blame the former President for the current economic mess the country finds itself,” a portion stated.

 

It stressed, “this deliberate misrepresentation and spin on an otherwise cautious statement from the World Bank can only be the handiwork of an NPP tabloid at the behest of a misguided, confused and clueless government that has lost its way in finding solutions to the current hardship the ordinary Ghanaian is facing.”

 

According to the Minority Caucus, “on the contrary, the caution from the World Bank only goes to confirm our longstanding warning on the unnecessary political interference, corruption and mismanagement of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumiah-led government in the energy sector since assuming office.”

This deliberate misrepresentation and spin on an otherwise cautious statement from the World Bank can only be the handiwork of an NPP tabloid at the behest of a misguided, confused and clueless government that has lost its way in finding solutions to the current hardship the ordinary Ghanaian is facing.

 

On the contrary, the caution from the World Bank only goes to confirm our longstanding warning on the unnecessary political interference, corruption and mismanagement of the Akuffo-Addo/Bawumiah-led government in the energy sector since assuming office.

 

Not long ago the Vice-President, Mr Bawumia at an official programme stated that his government has paid a whopping GHS17 billion cedis in so-called excess capacity payments, today we are being told the figure has metamorphosed into GHS12 billion cedis.

 

It will be recalled that the Minister for Finance, Mr Ken Ofori-Atta appearing before Parliament to answer questions made claims that government has paid a total of $937.50 million to Independent Power Producers (IPPs) as excess capacity charges between 2017 and 2020, and this figure was inclusive of power and Gas supplied as well as payment for the mandatory 20% reserve margin.

 

These contradictory and inconsistent figures can only come from a very confused and dishonest government.

 

For the records, the NDC handed over a vibrant, well resourced and functioning energy sector to the NPP without Dumsor (as corroborated by Dr. Bawumiah himself in a joy fm interview and very recently by the Majority Leader, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu)

 

We also handed over the energy sector levies to the NPP Government which has accrued over GHS24 billion cedis in revenues. The critical question to the NPP Government is what has happened to the promise of scraping ESLA, a levy that has since been increased by over 30% under this administration.

 

We also wish to place on record that the OCTP Gas field has been supplying over 210MMscf of gas im recent times which is far above the contractual volume of 170MMscf. Therefore, the narrative that the Government is paying for unutilised gas from the field is therefore false and cannot be substantiated.

 

In the Power sector, the Aggregate Technical, Commercial and Collection (ATCC) losses have risen from 21% under Mahama to over 30% under the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government. Payment for these huge losses by Government does not, and cannot amount to excess capacity payments.

 

We wish to state emphatically that Ghana is in this current mess because of mismanagement, corruption and political interference in the energy sector (Example: PDS, Ameri, BOST, TOR, AKER etc scandals) by the Akufo- Addo/Bawumiah led Government.

 

Rather than taking pragmatic steps toward solving the economic hardship that the ordinary Ghanaian is experiencing with inflation skyrocketing, the Bawumia-led Economic Management Team has decided to use the little resources at Ghana’s disposal to engage in unnecessary and constant vilification of the former President through their assigns and hirelings.

 

President Akufo-Addo must note that the fixation on tarnishing the image of Mr. Mahama will not solve the economic problems of Ghana.

 

Government needs to stay focused and work towards ensuring better lives for Ghanaians.

NDC handed a vibrant, well resourced and functioning energy sector to confused and clueless NPP gov’t – Minority

The Minority Caucus in Parliament has rejected claims by the Akufo-Addo-led NPP government that the Mahama government left an unattractive energy sector when it took over in January 2017.

 

In reaction to a Daily Guide publication with the headline “Mahama Energy Sector Agreements Drowning Ghana-World Bank,” the Minority noted that the energy sector had almost every feature of a well-equipped and functional energy sector before it left power.

 

In a statement signed by John Jinapor, the Minority Ranking Member on the Mines and Energy Committee in Parliament copied to Modernghana News on Thursday, September 22, he said, “For the records, the NDC handed over a vibrant, well resourced and functioning energy sector to the NPP without Dumsor (as corroborated by Dr. Bawumiah himself in a Joy FM interview and very recently by the Majority Leader, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu).

Travel and Leisure Magazine ranks Commonwealth of Dominica as one of the best islands in the world

ROSEAU, Dominica, Sept. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dominica has been ranked among the 25 best islands across the globe by Travel + Leisure Magazine. The island nation ranked eighth in the annual survey conducted by the luxury magazine.

Every year, World’s Best Awards survey Travel + Leisure readers asking them to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe and share their opinions on the top cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated islands according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value.

In the eyes of Travel + Leisure readers, the best islands in the world promise much more than aquamarine waters, dramatic coastlines, and pristine beaches.

The Commonwealth of Dominica, known as the Nature Isle of the Caribbean, took eighth spot in the survey for reasons including its lush green jungles, striking black-sand beaches and natural hot springs.

Dominica scored 91 points in the survey, surpassing 17 other island countries.

The island offers tourists relaxation, seclusion, and eco-adventures set against a backdrop of the most beautiful beaches and rainforests.

Well-known as the Nature Isle for over 300 amazing reasons, Dominica lures largely eco-adventurers with its 365 rivers, Boiling Lake, Champagne Reef, rainforest-shrouded volcano, sulphurous hot springs, superb diving sites and the Caribbean’s first long-distance hiking trail.

Halfway between Guadeloupe and Martinique, Dominica is the only place in the Eastern Caribbean that is still home to a sizeable population of indigenous people, the Kalinago, who have lived on the island since the 13th century.

Based on geological activity Dominica is one of the youngest islands in the Caribbean chain, having first emerged from the sea during the Oligocene era approximately 26 million years ago and is one of the last Caribbean islands to have been formed by volcanic activity. The island is a vibrant tapestry of European and African cultures.

In June this year, Dominica earned the title of #1 Island in the Caribbean, securing the number one ranking in its debut in the prestigious travel and leisure World’s Best Awards which focussed on the areas including the Caribbean, Bermuda and The Bahamas. As one of the Caribbean’s most sparsely populated, environmentally conscious, and culturally rich countries, Dominica is fast emerging as a top travel destination.

Since the Ministry of Tourism through the Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) launched its bold new destination rebrand in February 2022, the Commonwealth of Dominica has already seen triple digit growth percentagewise to tourist arrivals in the country. This has also been enhanced by airlift via a direct flight from mainland U.S. with American Airlines.

Dominica attracts a more discerning traveller looking for wellness, regenerative and adventurous travel and, more importantly, a sustainable and eco-conscious destination. Those looking to travel to less crowded, off-the-beaten-track destinations will welcome the country’s health and wellness assets, rich flora and fauna, and cultural heritage.

Some of these assets include Secret Bay, a six-star all-villa rainforest resort experience magnificently designed in harmony with the environment to make visitors feel at one with nature. Secret Bay has been named Travel and Leisure’s No #1 Resort for the region which includes the Caribbean, Bermuda and The Bahamas for 2022. The resort topped the World’s Best Awards reader’s survey for the second time in three years in the region.

As travellers search for deeper, more distinctive, and more meaningful experiences, destinations need to protect what is distinctive and focus on quality over quantity. This is exactly what Dominica offers to travellers as it continues its sustainable and eco-conscious drive.

While eco-friendly travel may be a new trend for some, it has always been at the forefront of planning and development for Dominica. With nationwide commitments to not only minimising its environmental impact but essentially eliminating it altogether, Dominica is on track to become the world’s first climate-resilient country by 2030. One top initiative supporting this ambitious goal is a switch to 100% domestic renewable energy production as a contribution to a zero-carbon economy. 

Set to be completed in 2022 is a geothermal energy plant in the Roseau Valley, which is expected to generate approximately 120 megawatts of electricity. Dominica’s geology is ideal for supporting this type of energy, which is reliable, effective and low cost.

The World Best Awards are compiled from an annual survey developed by the editors of Travel + Leisure, in association with research firm M&RR, from October 25 through to February 28, readers are invited to participate and rate the best hotels, airlines, cruises and islands.

In the most recent CBI Index Report, a rating system designed to measure the performance and appeal of global citizenship by investment (CBI) programmes across a diverse range of indicators, Dominica secured the number one spot for the sixth consecutive year, beating 11 other nations with active citizenship by investment programmes.

Citizenship by Investment programmes offer the opportunity to legally acquire citizenship of a country in return of a contribution to a government fund of that country or investment in one of its pre-approved real estate projects. CBI programmes ultimately provide a unique occasion for investors wishing to access increased business opportunities as well as for countries that may benefit from foreign direct investment to assure wider economic growth to its citizens.

Initiatives subsidised by the direct foreign investment transferred through Dominica’s CBI Programme, in fact, contribute to the island’s education and tourism sector, healthcare infrastructure, as well as the creation of environmentally friendly resorts and villas and hurricane-resistant homes for Dominican families.

Established in 1993, the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme is one of the longest standing in the citizenship by investment industry, and has welcomed foreign investors from across the globe to obtain citizenship of the nation for over 3 decades.

Gates Foundation Announces $1.27 Billion in Health and Development Commitments to Advance Progress Toward the Global Goals

First in-person Goalkeepers event since 2019 convenes global changemakers to highlight the urgency of achieving a more equitable world by 2030

NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — During United Nations General Assembly week, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation—alongside governments, philanthropies, the private sector, NGOs, and global and community leaders—announced commitments totalling $1.27 billion to improve and save millions of lives.

The funding will address overlapping global crises that have reversed the progress already made toward achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals). The foundation’s sixth annual Goalkeepers Report notes that nearly every indicator of the Global Goals is off track at the halfway point for achieving them by 2030. Despite these challenges, the report highlights opportunities to accelerate progress by investing in long-term solutions and innovative approaches to entrenched issues, including poverty, inequality, and climate change.

This week has underscored the urgency of the challenges we face, and the promise of sustainable solutions that save and improve lives,” said Mark Suzman, Gates Foundation CEO. “We can get back on track toward the SDGs, but it’s going to take a new level of collaboration and investment from every sector. That’s why our foundation is significantly stepping up our commitment to help confront crises now and ensure long-term impact across critical determinants of health and development.”

Today’s Goalkeepers event convened global leaders and changemakers to discuss current and future efforts to achieve the Global Goals. Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados; Pedro Sanchez, Prime Minister of Spain; Bill Gates; Melinda French Gates; more than 300 young changemakers; and other emerging and established leaders from around the world participated in the event.

“The last time we gathered in person for Goalkeepers, we talked about how the most well-intentioned programs can perpetuate inequities if the communities they want to reach aren’t involved in the design,” said Co-chair Melinda French Gates. “A lot has changed since 2019, but one thing hasn’t: We won’t make progress toward the Global Goals unless those with lived experiences have a seat at the table. I’m proud of our Goalkeepers Award winners and the many partners from all corners of the world who are working to develop this next generation of leaders.”

Also today, at the Global Fund Replenishment Conference, governments and the private sector joined together to pledge a record-high level of commitment that will advance the goal of achieving good health and well-being for all. The funding will go toward the Global Fund’s goal of saving 20 million more lives from HIV, TB, and malaria; building more resilient health systems to prevent future pandemics; and putting the world back on track to end these diseases by 2030. Today’s pledge includes the foundation’s largest commitment yet to the Global Fund of $912 million.

“We see the greatest progress when governments, the private sector, and local communities collaborate in global health programs,” said Bill Gates, co-chair. “The commitment this week to combat preventable diseases and save millions more lives through the Global Fund replenishment is a great step forward in getting back on track to reach the Sustainable Development Goals.”

Accelerating Progress Toward Global Goals
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced the following commitments this week:

  • $912 million pledge to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
    This is the foundation’s largest commitment yet to the Global Fund. Since 2002, health programs supported by the Global Fund partnership have saved 50 million lives. This funding will help accelerate efforts to end HIV, TB, and malaria by 2030 and build resilient health systems needed to protect against future pandemics. It also will be instrumental in reducing the disproportionate impact of these diseases on women and girls.
  • $100 million to help alleviate the food crisis disproportionately impacting communities in Africa and South Asia and address its underlying causes

This funding will go to:

    • The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) to support national governments in rebuilding resilient, sustainable local food systems
    • The African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnership (AFAP) to make fertilizers affordable and accessible for smallholder farmers
    • The CGIAR’s Nigeria-based International Institute of Tropical Agriculture research center to accelerate work that is already supplying farmers with improved and new varieties of crops, such as beans high in iron; sweet potatoes naturally rich in vitamin A; and naturally hardy cassava, millet, and sorghum
    • Working with partners to supply sustainable feed and fodder to African families that depend on livestock as a critical source of income and nutrient-dense food
    • Working with partners to strengthen local food systems by empowering women farmers with the tools and resources they need to succeed and support their communities

In addition, the foundation will double its previous commitment to the Child Nutrition Fund—from $10 million to $20 million. Our investment will support the fund’s expansion beyond ready-to-use therapeutic food to include preventative nutrition products for both women and children.

  • $200 million to expand global Digital Public Infrastructure
    This funding will help expand infrastructure that low- and middle-income countries can use to become more resilient to crises such as food shortages, public health threats, and climate change, as well as to aid in pandemic and economic recovery. This infrastructure encompasses tools such as interoperable payment systems, digital ID, data-sharing systems, and civil registry databases.
  • $50 million to Partners in Health Scholarship Fund to attend the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE)  in Rwanda
    This commitment will help catalyze efforts to raise $200 million. The scholarship fund will support students, 75% of whom are women, to attend UGHE and help accelerate efforts to increase the number of health care workers in Rwanda and around the world.

Celebrating Global Goalkeepers
In recognition of the remarkable work of world leaders to advance the Global Goals, the foundation also announced the winners of its 2022 Goalkeepers Global Goals Awards on September 20.

  • Progress AwardDr. Radhika Batra, co-founder of the nonprofit organization Every Infant Matters, which provides last-mile health solutions to disadvantaged children in India
  • Changemaker AwardZahra Joya, a journalist from Afghanistan who founded and self-funded Rukhshana Media, an online news agency focused exclusively on covering issues that affect the women of Afghanistan
  • Campaign AwardVanessa Nakate, a climate justice activist from Uganda and founder of the Africa-based Rise Up Movement and the Green Schools Project
  • Global Goalkeeper AwardUrsula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission

Huawei Intelligent Cloud-Network, Leading Digital Innovation

BANGKOK, Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Huawei unveiled the upgraded capabilities of its Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution at the summit entitled “Intelligent Cloud-Network, Leading Digital Innovation”, held during HUAWEI CONNECT 2022 Bangkok. The capabilities cover three major scenarios — CloudFabric, CloudWAN, and CloudCampus — and were created in an effort to meet customers’ changing requirements. Huawei also released its Wireless Intelligent Network Architecture White Paper to further guide enterprises in digital innovation.

As digital transformation advances, enterprise services pose new requirements on data communication networks. First, massive numbers of IoT connections demand ultra-broadband and ubiquitous connectivity. Second, enterprise branch services are gradually moving to the cloud, requiring networks to provide flexible deployment and fast cloudification capabilities. Third, new services need to be rolled out on large scale and services need frequent adjustments, requiring networks to be agile, secure, and efficient. Finally, video conferencing is becoming commonplace, meaning that networks have to provide deterministic experience assurance.

Sun Liang, Vice President of Huawei’s Data Communication Product Line, noted that Huawei Datacom had developed the Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution through continuous innovation to address the preceding challenges. This solution provides key capabilities such as ultimate access experience, ultra-fast cloud access by branches, deterministic experience, and efficient and simplified deployment. Currently, the Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution has been widely used in sectors such as education, retail, government, and finance, facilitating digital transformation for customers. For example, in the education sector, the all-wireless Wi-Fi networking solution provides ultimate network access experience; in the retail sector, the SD-WAN ultra-fast cloud access solution enables one store to be opened in just one day; in the government sector, Huawei’s network slicing technology enables converged transport over one network and 100% assurance of business-critical services; in the financial sector, the simplified cross-domain multi-cloud service deployment solution enables services to be rolled out within minutes.

At the conference, Huawei also unveiled a number of new data communication products, such as the industry’s first Wi-Fi 7 AP AirEngine 8771-X1T, 400G-ready next-generation campus core switch CloudEngine S16700, and the 4-in-1 universal-service intelligent router NetEngine 8000 M4.

Huawei releases its Wireless Intelligent Network Architecture White Paper

In addition, Huawei released its Wireless Intelligent Network Architecture White Paper. Liu Jianning, President of Huawei’s Global Enterprise Network Marketing & Solutions Sales Dept, said that one of the most important changes to campus networks is fully wireless. The adoption of Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 7 in the future poses new requirements on network bandwidth, architecture, and O&M. To meet these new requirements, Huawei proposes the next-generation campus network architecture — wireless intelligent network architecture. This architecture has seven unique features: fully-wireless, hyper-converged, ultra-broadband, simplified, low-carbon, secure, and intelligent.

At the conference, customers from various industries shared how they have used Huawei’s Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution in their commercial practices. Agus Ariyanto, Vice President Network of Biznet, delivered a speech entitled “Biznet Builds a Future-oriented Intelligent WAN.” He said that “Built on a flat metro network, Huawei helps Biznet consolidate its leading role in the Industry. Together with Huawei, we’ll explore more regarding emerging technologies and business innovation based on IPE.”
