Credit Unions Must Be Free from Politics

first_imgThe Country Director of ACDI/VOCA Farmer to Farmer program, Mr. Patrick Yattoh, is calling on credit unions in Liberia to leave politics and work toward building post war Liberia.Speaking at the 5th annual assembly of the Liberia Credit Union National Association (LCUNA) in Ganta on May 24, Yattoh told the assembly that they should consider themselves as eagles and get ready to fly as donor partners continue the draw down.“Let credit unions be politics-free; they are business institutions and should conduct themselves as it is done in other countries,” he explained. “They should try to link up with donor institutions so as to build up their economic base that will make them strong.” Yattoh expressed satisfaction of the level of progress LCUNA has made since the establishment of the World Council to of Credit Unions, which began the process of building the capacity of credit unions in Liberia and also the speedy renovation of the LCUNA office, which was dilapidated for years.He added that as a not-for-profit organization involved in the capacity building of farmers, they observed that farmers do not have access to financial services and banking institutions are reluctant to give farmers loans.He explained that with presence of LCUNA in the country, he has the strong belief that farmers will have access to financial services and if any donor comes in and trains farmers, they will have access to financial services to empower themselves.He urged the credit union authority to take charge as a potential organization to carry on their task, like what is done in other countries to improve the country’s economy.The convention was held under the theme, “Credit Union the best vehicle for economic growth” and brought together over 100 participants, representing Liberia’s 15 counties.According to the CBL, there are about 300 credit unions in Liberia, with about 127 dues-paid credit unions with membership of over 14,000.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Henderson and Sterling should thank their lucky stars they are at Liverpool’

first_imgHarry Redknapp has expressed his disappointment with Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson over their contract stand-offs at Liverpool.The duo have both turned down lucrative new deals at Anfield, but Redknapp says they should count themselves lucky to be a Red and should be jumping at the chance to commit their futures to the Merseyside club.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Tottenham, QPR and West Ham boss said: “I don’t know who they are listening to but Liverpool is one of the great clubs in world football.“The atmosphere at Anfield, there is nowhere else like it. It is a great club.“They should be thanking their lucky stars they are at such a fantastic football club.“Sterling has been offered 100 grand a week – it is a fantastic offer. That is probably more than the three kids who were in the England squad last week from Tottenham are earning combined. Kane, Townsend, Mason, the three of them wouldn’t be earning anywhere near that between them.“It is a great offer – get on and play your football. He will get his 200 grand a week or whatever he is chasing in a few years. Henderson is the same.“Henderson has done well but he has still got a long way to go to be one of the all-time Liverpool greats. He is nowhere near that at the moment.“He looks a great lad, a good player, but get on with your football and keep progressing. Keep playing your football and thank your lucky stars you are at a club like Liverpool.”last_img read more

ELECTION 2014: WATER CHARGES IS THE MAIN ISSUE ON DOORSTEPS, SAYS MURRAY

first_imgInishowen Sinn Féin councillor Jack Murray has said that the issue of water charges is the primary issue of concern among families in Inishowen. Cllr Murray said that the issue is constantly raised by voters during election canvassing. Cllr Murray said: “Families in Inishowen are at the end of their tether. Our young people are emigrating in their thousands, unemployment is out of control, we have the lowest disposable income in the state and the government is saddling us with more and more new taxes.“To date I have canvassed hundreds of homes throughout Inishowen on the election campaign. At almost every door I have been met by people who are worried about the introduction of water charges. “People are rightly angry that they are paying property taxes but not receiving any services in return. They are now furious that water charges are being introduced as a new way of taking money from struggling people.“Sinn Féin is opposed to water charges and property taxes. We have clearly demonstrated how revenue can be raised through alternatives measures which would see the super wealthy pay their fair share and give ordinary families a break.“This message is welcomed on the canvass and I am confident that people will endorse our fairer approach to politics on 23rd May.”  ELECTION 2014: WATER CHARGES IS THE MAIN ISSUE ON DOORSTEPS, SAYS MURRAY was last modified: May 5th, 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:Election 2014:InishowenJack Murraymuffwater chargeslast_img read more
