Principals to Get More Support

first_imgNova Scotia’s school principals will be looking at ways toimprove their role as educational leaders in their schools. Morethan 250 elementary school principals from across the provinceare wrapping up the first of three meetings today, May 10, inHalifax. “Principals have a major influence on student performance,” saidEducation Minister Jamie Muir. “But we recognize that operationaldemands and pressures often take priority. We want to help thembalance their responsibilities and focus on being improvededucational leaders. This meeting is the first step.” Principals in Focus meetings are being hosted by the provincialgovernment. This is the first time the Department of Educationhas met directly with elementary, middle and senior high schoolprincipals as a group. Heather Harris has been an administrator for 21 years and is theprincipal of Kingston and District Elementary School. She saidprincipals spend a significant amount of time managing theoperations of the school, rather than focusing on the directneeds of students. “The amount of time I spend dealing with operational andmanagerial issues such as building cleanliness, fire and safetyregulations, facilities management, and dealing with healthissues, takes away from the time I can spend on student needs,”said Ms. Harris. “I want to be able to focus on studentachievement and this conference is a positive step toward that.It’s really an opportunity for the department to see a typicalday through my eyes.” During the two-day meetings, principals are being asked to thinkabout their role, what could be done differently, and whatsupport they need from the department and school boards to helpthem focus on leadership. “We want principals to have the time and energy to make an evengreater difference in student performance,” said Mr. Muir. “Wewant to help them re-focus their time so they are better able toshare their expertise in teaching and learning, and leadimprovement in their school.” The Principals in Focus meeting for junior high school principalswill be held May 24-25. The meeting for high school principalswill take place May 26-27.last_img read more

IndianAmerican population grew by 38 between 201017

first_imgWashington DC: The population of Indian-origin people in America grew by 38 per cent in seven years between 2010 and 2017, a South Asian advocacy group has said in its latest demographic report. In 2017, the population of Indian-Americans with multiple ethnicities was recorded as 44,02,363, up 38.3 per cent from 31,83,063 in 2010, the South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) said in its snapshot. There are at least 630,000 Indians who are undocumented, a 72 per cent increase since 2010, it said. Also Read – Merkel warns UK Brexit deal ‘unlikely’ without compromise: LondonThe increase in illegal Indian-Americans can be attributed to Indian immigrants overstaying visas, it said. Nearly 250,000 Indians overstayed their visa in 2016 therefore becoming undocumented, it said. In general, the population of American residents tracing their roots to South Asia grew by 40 per cent. In real terms, it increased from 3.5 million in 2010 to 5.4 million in 2017, SAALT said. The Nepali community grew by 206.6 per cent since 2010, followed by Indian (38 per cent), Bhutanese (38 per cent), Pakistani (33 per cent), Bangladeshi (26 per cent) and Sri Lankan populations (15 per cent).

As of August 2018, there are approximately 2,550 active Indian DACA recipients. Only 13 per cent of the overall 20,000 DACA eligible Indians have applied and received DACA. SAALT said that as far as DACA recipients from other countries are concerned, there are 1,300 from Pakistan, 470 from Bangladesh, 120 from Sri Lanka and 60 from Nepal. The immigrant population density of the country shows that undocumented Bangladeshi immigrants live in New York (19,000); Michigan (4,000); Virginia (3,000); and California (2,000). The demographic snapshot is based primarily on Census 2010 and the 2017 American Community Survey. According to the report, income inequality has been reported to be the greatest among Asian Americans. Nearly one percent of the approximately five million South Asians in the US live in poverty. SAALT said there has been a rise in the number of South Asians seeking asylum in the US over the last 10 years. The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has detained 3,013 South Asians since 2017. US Customs and Border Patrol arrested 17,119 South Asians between October 2014 and April 2018 through border and interior enforcement, it said. According to SAALT, since 1997, more than 1.7 million dependent spouses of H-1B visa holders have received H-4 visas. In 2017, 136,000 individuals received H-4 status. Nearly 86 per cent of H-4 visa holders are from South Asian countries. In 2015, DHS granted work authorisation to certain H-4 visa holders. As of December 2017, approximately 127,000 visa holders were approved for H-4 EAD, the report said. Nearly 472,000 or 10 per cent of the approximately five million South Asians in the US live in poverty, the report said. Among South Asian Americans, Pakistanis (15.8 per cent), Nepalis (23.9 per cent), Bangladeshis (24.2 per cent), and Bhutanese (33.3 per cent) had the highest poverty rates, it said. Bangladeshi and Nepali communities have the lowest median household incomes out of all Asian American groups, earning USD 49,800 and USD 43,500 respectively, it said. Nearly 61 per cent of non-citizen Bangladeshi American families receive public benefits for at least one of the four federal programmes including TANF, SSI, SNAP and Medicaid/CHIP, 48 per cent of non-citizen Pakistani families and 11 per cent of non-citizen Indian families also receive public benefits, the report said. In the lead up to the 2020 elections, South Asians are becoming an increasingly powerful segment of the American electorate, SAALT said. According to the Current Population Survey (CPS), 49.9 per cent of voting-age, Asian American citizens cast a ballot in 2016. The number of Asian American voters in the last decade has nearly doubled from about two million voters in 2001 to 5 million voters in 2016. Of these, Indians account for more than 1.5 million, followed by Pakistanis (222,252) and Bangladeshi (69,825), SAALT added.last_img read more

Not to the Wall Notley wont team up to fight federal carbon

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley speaks to reporters at the McDougall Centre in Calgary, Alta., Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jeff McIntosh by Chinta Puxley, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 6, 2016 10:59 am MDT Last Updated Oct 6, 2016 at 12:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email EDMONTON – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says she’s not interested in presenting a united front with some other provincial leaders against Ottawa’s carbon pricing plan.Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall and Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil have been vocal critics of the Liberal government’s intent to charge $10 per tonne of carbon starting in 2018. Notley has said Alberta won’t go along with the plan unless the federal government makes progress on new oil pipelines to Canada’s coasts.But after a speech to Alberta municipalities Thursday, Notley said she isn’t interested in banding together with Wall and McNeil to battle the plan. Unlike some of her counterparts, Notley said Alberta supports the idea of a national price on carbon in principle.“We’re always open to engaging in conversations with all of our colleagues across the country. But to suggest that there should be no carbon price in Canada, that’s probably not a starting point that’s helpful for me to utilize.”Alberta is bringing in its own carbon tax based on the equivalent of $20 per tonne of carbon emissions on Jan. 1. It is scheduled to rise to $30 a tonne in 2018.The federal plan calls for the price on carbon to rise by $10 per tonne each year until it reaches $50 per tonne in 2022. Trudeau has said carbon pricing will be imposed on provinces that don’t match the tax either through direct pricing or through a cap-and-trade mechanism.McNeil has said Nova Scotia definitely won’t impose a tax and he isn’t sure cap and trade is the right way to go either. He said the province has already met the national target of a 30 per cent reduction in emissions from 2005 by 2030.Wall, who has never supported carbon pricing, has called Trudeau’s plan disrespectful and a betrayal. He has argued Saskatchewan will be one of the hardest hit by what he calls “one of the largest national tax increases in Canadian history.”“We are probably farther along the path to agreeing to the principle that a common pricing on carbon across the country is of value,” said Notley, who has clashed with Wall on a number of issues in the past. “At this point, we are talking with the federal government.”Notley said she hasn’t talked to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau since he announced his plan Monday, but Alberta’s stance shouldn’t have come as a surprise.She hasn’t outlined what Alberta would do if there is no significant progress on pipeline development, except to say Ottawa will find it difficult to implement a national carbon price without provincial co-operation.“It is a complex and complicated policy initiative. You can’t simply snap your fingers and have it happen with a completely predictable outcome,” Notley said.“The federal government simply announcing a new price without working with each of the provinces … is going to run into trouble. They can either work collaboratively with the provinces to get through that, or they cannot.” Not to the Wall: Notley won’t team up to fight federal carbon tax read more

Change of pace Martin makes mark at running back after time at

Jermil Martin came to Ohio State as a defensive end. Seven carries, 75 yards and one touchdown later, the redshirt freshman has completed his transition from the Glenville High School defensive line to the Buckeye backfield. It took injuries to two OSU backs and a huge fourth quarter lead for Martin to finally get his chance to shine.“I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long,” Martin said. “I finally got it.”With 11-and-a-half minutes remaining in the Buckeyes’ 38-7 victory against Minnesota, Martin took a carry to the left side. After rumbling 39 yards, he had his first collegiate touchdown. Though his score meant virtually nothing for the outcome of the game, it was a moment Martin will never forget.“It felt good to score a touchdown,” Martin said. “It was a dream come true.”While many people were surprised to see Martin in the end zone Saturday, Martin said he knew he was ready for success.“Before I even got a chance to carry the ball, I try to visualize what I’m going to do,” Martin said. “I actually had a visualization that I was going to score, so that’s what I did.”Martin came into the game with only one carry for negative two yards on the season. But it was his hard work, he said, that earned him another opportunity to prove himself. “I’ve gotten a lot better,” Martin said. “I get better every day. I’ve been getting more reps in practice and hopefully it’s paying off.”Coach Jim Tressel has always preached the importance of having a deep stable of running backs on the roster. With Dan “Boom” Herron inactive Saturday because of an ankle injury, and Brandon Saine leaving the game with a head injury, Tressel had the chance to see just how deep his team was.Freshman Jordan Hall received the bulk of the carries following the injury to Saine, before being relieved late in the game by Martin. “You never have enough tailbacks because tailbacks take a pounding unlike any other position,” Tressel said. “We obviously weren’t excited about playing the second half without Brandon. Jordan stepped up and Jermil did a heck of a job.”Martin said when he saw that Saine was hurt, his immediate thoughts were with his injured backfield mate.“As soon as Brandon went down, I was like, ‘Dang, I hope he’s going to be okay so he can get back in the game,’” Martin said. “I feel like if I bump my teammates up, they’re going to do better.”But Martin had little time to worry about the injury, as he was quickly thrown into the fray. Fortunately for Martin, once given a chance, he did not disappoint.“It’s a very special day,” Martin said. “I can’t wait to get home with my family and celebrate.” read more

BBC presenter sent rape threats by obsessed pensioner urges stalking victims to

Judge Martin Picton imposed an indefinite restraining order banning him from contacting Ms Lovell or going to the BBC’s regional centre on Whiteladies Road in Bristol.”People in the public eye are entitled to the same respect and privacy as everyone else in society,” he told Hawthorn.”The fact that someone has a high profile does not mean that it can be open season for people such as yourself.

Starting prices at auctions set to take a dive

first_imgThe Greek government and the country’s international creditors agreed that repossessed properties as well as real estate being put up for sale by the state will have a starting price of two-thirds of their market value at auction, after the government convinced the troika against an initial asking price of just one-third of the value.“If there are no buyers at two-thirds, then we will go to half the price. If there is nothing then either, it will be up to the courts,” said a top Finance Ministry official on Tuesday.This means that auctions which have already been planned are unlikely to find any buyers willing to pay the full market value given that starting prices will drop significantly after the change is introduced.Consequently the state properties advertised on publicrevenue.gr will be auctioned off at a lower price than the one currently asked after the change is introduced. For instance, with the implementation of the new starting prices, it will be possible to purchase a detached house in Markopoulo with a market value of 169,600 euros for just 111,936 euros.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Mais plus qu’un simple piratage, l’attaque baptisée “opération Facebook” qui débuterait dès le 5 novembre prochain, aurait pour but une destruction totale du réseau social. À lire aussiCharlie Hebdo : Anonymous a lancé son #OpcharliehebdoEn effet, les hackers profèrent dans la vidéo, une longue liste d’accusations contre Facebook,  qui concernent essentiellement les données personnelles de ses utilisateurs. Le collectif reproche notamment au réseau social de s’immiscer dans la vie privée de ses membres, de vendre des données normalement confidentielles à des organismes gouvernementaux, mais aussi de conserver toutes les informations communiquées par ses utilisateurs et ce, même après fermeture du compte. Ainsi, Anonymous explique : “Facebook en sait plus sur vous que votre propre famille”. Au regard des nombreuses attaques déjà réussies par le collectif basé aux Etats-Unis et en Grande-Bretagne, le réseau social a largement de quoi s’inquiéter.

Dhanteras 2016 Gold fails to shine due to weak demand high prices

first_imgGold remained lacklustre even on Dhanteras as global weakness in the precious metal failed to offset token buying by jewellers and retailers on Friday, resulting in the yellow metal losing Rs 110 to close at Rs 30,590 per 10 gm. Silver remained unchanged at Rs 42,700 per kg.In the past one month, gold has lost almost 2.50 percent from its September 29 closing price of Rs 31,350.Gold prices have increased by Rs 4,360, or 16.6 percent, while silver has gained Rs 7,290, or 20.58 percent from last year’s Dhanteras, according to PTI.The auspicious buying of gold on Dhanteras did not lift prices, though jewellers were hopeful of bullish sales this year on the back of salary bonanza to Central government employees with the partial implementation of the proposals of the 7th Pay Commission and a good monsoon after two straight years of drought.Gold jewellers had pinned their hopes on these factors to see higher demand this year.”Diwali bonuses coupled with the increased purchasing power triggered by the 7th pay commission is expected to notch up the demand for gold this season. The wedding season round the corner will also have a positive demand on the growth,” Pratap Kamath, CEO of Bengaluru-based Abaran Jewellers had said a few days ago.”In fact, jewellery buying during this Dhanteras is expected 30 per cent more than last year,” he added.Crowds at jewellery shops could be telling a different story, suggests an IANS report from Mumbai. “This is despite the fact that the gold prices are around Rs 30,450/10 gms (per tola) compared to Rs 25,450/10 gms on Dhanteras last year (2015),” Mumbai Jewellers Association’s Vice-President Surinder Kumar Jain told the agency.Most of the gold jewellers are family-owned businesses in India, while a few are listed companies, such as PC Jeweller, Gitanjali Gems, Titan, which retails jewellery under Tanishq brand and Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri (TBZ).On Friday, Titan shares gained 1.46 percent, PC Jeweller 0.30 percent and TBZ 3.85 percent, while Gitanjali Gems lost 1.13 percent. TBZ and Titan will be declaring their Q2 results on November 9 and 4, respectively.The recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission cover 47 lakh Central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.last_img read more

Apple wins multitouch and glass process patents

first_img More information: USPTO Patent 1USPTO Patent 2via PatentlyApple © 2012 Phys.org Explore further Apple granted smartphone touchscreen patent (Phys.org)—The US Patent and Trademark Office has published thirty-six patents granted for Apple. Patently Apple has highlighted two of those patents. One has to do with multi-touch displays. The multi-touch patent relates to sensor panels using capacitive sensors to detect and localize touch events. The other patent has to do with new ways to shape glass for iDevices, e.g., the iPhone and iPad. One of the advantages of Apple’s proposed process on glass is that it would not involve dangerous chemicals and gasses.center_img First, in presenting the Touch Sensor Back Plane Ground Connection, which was filed by Thayne Miller in July last year, the patent noted that, if touch sensors are to correctly identify the presence and location of a touch event, then the back plane of the touch sensor panel needs to be reliably grounded. If the back plane isn’t, then sensors may behave sporadically and misrepresent touch events or fail.”Touch sensors may misrepresent the touch event. These misrepresentations can include, but are not limited to, errors in the location of a touch event or the detection of a phantom touch in the absence of an actual touch event. In extreme cases, the touch sensors may fail altogether.” The patent said the various embodiments in the disclosure are designed to provide a reliable ground connection even in the presence of failure conditions. Providing a reliable ground connection for the back plane may be useful in providing a uniform electrical reference point to measure changes in voltage and capacitance from a touch event. The patent signals Apple’s ongoing development of multi-touch for its iDevices.The “Glass” patent, titled “Glass alignment for high temperature processes,” was filed in 2009. The patent said that “Apparatus, systems and methods for alignment of a glass member for high temperature processing are disclosed. The high temperature processing can, for example, pertain to a slumping process to mold glass into a predetermined shape (e.g., a three-dimensional shape). In one embodiment, a glass slumping system can have a mold and an alignment system that support a glass member to be slumped relative to the mold. The alignment system may have a plurality of alignment members being configured to move away from the glass member as the temperature increases during the slumping process to allow the glass member to bend around the mold without interference.”This second patent appears to have drawn the most interest from Apple watchers, casting bets that it may signal introductions of bendable phones and other such devices. The new patent details a way to use heat to achieve a particular shape. The patent suggests ways to shape glass without having to undergo a long process and involving risky chemicals. The patent’s suggested embodiments of the glass invention are discussed: “The apparatus, systems and methods for alignment of a glass member for high temperature processing are suitable for glass covers assembled in small form factor electronic devices, such as handheld electronic devices,” it said, but also listed more embodiments. “The apparatus, systems and methods can also be used for glass covers or displays for other relatively larger form factor electronic devices (e.g., portable computers, tablet computers, displays, monitors, televisions, etc.).” Citation: Apple wins multi-touch and glass process patents (2012, December 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-12-apple-multi-touch-glass-patents.html This document is subject to copyright.

first_imgThe obsession among Indians with anything that people in the West do, has to stop, says young and popular designer Masaba Gupta, who hopes originality gets a fillip in the country.“We, as a nation, are generally very obsessed with the West and anything that they do. Anything that’s a fad, be it in garments or make-up looks, it immediately translates here,” said Masaba.The new-age designer, a former fashion director at the luxury label Satya Paul, says “People should speak up” against designers who blantantly copy others both from India and the West. “There are so many designers who take India as an inspiration, internationally and do such amazing things…I think people and the media should openly speak up about designers who are copying others because it’s very important that they do not give them that stamp of approval,” she added. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Masaba especially feels that Lebanese fashion designer Zuhair Murad, who is famous for making gowns, and national designers like Gaurav Gupta and Tarun Tahiliani, who have brought the concept of sari gowns on the runway, have been aped the most. She feels designers who copy “should not even get a place in fashion weeks”.“I think for the layman, it’s not plagiarism…for them it is a similar outfit. But people who are in fashion and people who understand it, should stand up and voice it out,” added the designer. Known for her extraordinary and quirky prints like the lipstick, cow and camera print, which have been one of the most copied print in Indian fashion market, Masaba said it is copying the silhouettes that bothers her more than anyone copying her designs.

It is very easy to copy my prints. You can just take a photograph here on the runway and replicate it in the next 10 days. You will have many fabrics in my print, but silhouettes is something original and that should not be copied. But I think designers should not copy the other designers’ style or print,” she said. Masaba, the daughter of actor Neena Gupta and cricket legend Vivian Richards, had launched her eponymous label in July 2009. Talking about how she came up with her famous quirky prints, the 26-year-old said: “I do not think I know anything else… I just know how to take objects, motifs, a certain theme and just turn it around and make it really fun.” Masaba feels that the youth “are biggest influencers of fashion today” and so she constantly tries to make something that can “define their style statement”.last_img read more

Commission (ICPC) has arraigned a former Director General of the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) Mr Bature Umar Masari Masari was accused of receiving bribes of N1198 million for himself and four federal legislators from several contractors handling constituency projects The former SMEDAN boss who was arraigned on Monday before Justice Adebola Adeniyi of the High Court of the Federal Capital Abuja was accused of committing the offence between April 2014 and July 2015 when he asked and received bribes on many occasions from the contractors through his Diamond Bank and Guaranty Trust Bank accounts The Commission in a 27-count charge accused Masari of conferring corrupt advantage upon himself as well as receiving gratification in the course of discharging his official duties contrary to Section 10 (a) (i) and punishable under Section 10(a) (ii) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000 His offence further violates Section

Year The President in a nationwide broadcast assured Nigerians that the year 2018 promises to be pivotal in the nation’s quest for change The full text below I join my fellow citizens this morning to welcome and celebrate the New Year 2018 This year promises to be pivotal in our quest for CHANGE Unfortunately I am saddened to acknowledge that for many this Christmas and New Year holidays have been anything but merry and happy Instead of showing love companionship and charity some of our compatriots chose this period to inflict severe hardship on us all by creating unnecessary fuel scarcity across the country The consequence was that not many could travel and the few who did had to pay exorbitant transport fares This is unacceptable given that NNPC had taken measures to ensure availability at all depots I am determined to get to the root of this collective blackmail of all Nigerians and ensure that whichever groups are behind this manipulated hardship will be prevented from doing so again Such unpatriotism will not divert the Administration from the course we have set ourselves Our government’s watch word and policy thrust is CHANGE We must change our way of doing things or we will stagnate and be left behind in the race to lift our people out of poverty and into prosperity My address to fellow Nigerians this morning is devoted mainly to informing you about the intense efforts this Administration is putting to address our country’s huge infrastructural deficit We are going to make significant in-roads in advancing road rail and power projects across the country The Ministry of Power Works and Housing is one of the drivers of this Government’s commitment to renew and increase Nigeria’s stock of infrastructure in order to achieve global economic competitiveness as targeted under the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan With regards to Railways we have set ourselves ambitious targets Already in construction stage is the Lagos-Kano Standard Gauge Railway The line should reach Ibadan from Lagos by the end of 2019 and will carry two million passengers per year and five million tons of cargo will be transported every year giving a substantial boost to the country’s economy Construction of the Kano – Kaduna segment is expected to commence this year and reach Kaduna by the end of 2019 By the end of 2021 the two ends will be joined so that we will have standard gauge railway across the main North-South trading route The Abuja – Kaduna route will be boosted by additional rolling stock next Thursday and will be able to handle one million commuters annually At the same time I have approved and negotiations will be concluded in the first part of this year for the Port Harcourt to Maiduguri line covering Aba Owerri Umuahia Enugu Awka Abakaliki Makurdi Lafia Jos Bauchi Gombe Yola and Damaturu The Abuja to Itakpe line will go through Baro and terminate in Warri with construction of a new seaport at Warri Negotiations are also advanced for the construction of other railway lines firstly from Kano to Maradi in Niger Republic passing through Kazaure Daura Katsina Jibia to Maradi Secondly Lagos to Calabar the “Coastal Rail” through Ore Benin Agbor Asaba Onitsha Sapele Ughelli Warri Yenagoa Otuoke Port Harcourt Aba Uyo and Calabar In the next few years all these Nigerian cities will be linked by functional modern rail systems giving enormous boost to the social and economic life of our people With respect to the Abuja Capital Light Rail progress has reached 98% completion as at 64% completion when we assumed office Only test runs remain before start of operations This train service will stimulate economic activities in the Federal Capital and provide residents with an efficient and safe transportation system Twelve railway sub-stations around the capital over a 452 kilometre route will serve as a catalyst and a pull factor to the economy of the area The Light Rail System will reduce traffic congestion and carbon emission in line with the Administration’s policy on climate change Management of the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) has been reconstituted and has been charged with a 12 week rapid intervention in road repairs to cover all the geo-political zones Government is undertaking repairs and maintenance of 44 roads within the six geo-political zones Twenty five major highways will be funded under the N100b SUKUK facility Each geo-political zone will benefit by an equal amount of N1667b The following major highways are to receive special attention: a Oyo – Ogbomosho b Ofusu – Ore – Ajebandele – Shagamu c Yenagoa Road Junction – Kolo Otuoke – Bayelsa Palm d Enugu – Port Harcourt Dual Carriage Way e Onitsha – Enugu Expressway f Kaduna Eastern Bypass g Dualization of Kano – Maiduguri Road h Dualization of Abuja – Lokoja – Benin Road i Dualization of Suleja – Minna Road In addition Government has approved work to start on the re-construction of Abuja – Kaduna – Zaria – Kano road which is in a state of disrepair Work will soon start and is expected to be completed in 2019 More Nigerians across the country are experiencing improved power supply to their homes and businesses However power remains a concern to this government because too many people still do not have regular and reliable supply The Payment Assurance Guarantee Scheme which started in January 2016 has enabled the Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trader to raise so far N701 billion to assure Generation Companies of at least 80% payment for any power delivered to the national grid Consequently generation has now reached 7000MW On December 8 2017 the country achieved 5155MW of power delivered to consumers the highest level ever recorded Several moribund projects have been revived Repairs of Afam Power Station added 110MW in 2017 and another 240MW will be added this year through a private investment partnership Katsina Power Project is now being tested and producing 10MW of power from wind for the first time in Nigeria It should be fully operational this year The Zungeru 700MW Hydroelectric Power Project stalled by court cases is due for completion in 2019 The transmission and other requirements to operate the 30MW Gurara Phase 1 Hydroelectric Plant the 40MW Kashimbilla Hydroelectric Plant and the 215 MW Kaduna Gas/LPG/Diesel Power Plant will also be completed this year A landmark project Mambilla Hydroelectric Power Project is at last taking off This project has been on the drawing Board for 40 years but now the engineering procurement and construction contract for the 3050MW project has been agreed with a Chinese joint venture Company with a financing commitment from the government of China Completion is targeted for 2023 As I mentioned earlier the Transmission Company of Nigeria can now distribute all the 7000MW that can be generated TCN and the Niger Delta Holding Company have added 1950MVA of 330 down to 132KV transformer capacity of 10 transmission stations and 2930MVA of 132 down to 33KV transformer capacity of 42 sub-stations including Ikot Ekpene Aba Alagbon Ajah Ejigbo Funtua and Zaria This Administration is working with the privatised distribution Companies to overcome the continuing challenges of distribution These massive public works should spearhead the recovery and lead millions back to employment You will recall that it was not until last year that we got out of the economic recession into which the country had fallen as a consequence of past unsustainable economic policies which projected short-term illusory growth The government is slowly stabilizing the economy It was in order to change the steady and steep decline that we adopted the more sustainable policies and programmes captured in the Economic Recovery Plan Diversification efforts have resulted in improved output particularly in agriculture and solid minerals sectors The relative exchange rate stability has improved manufacturing sector performance We have got to get used to discipline and direction in economic management The days of business as usual are numbered Two years ago I appealed to people to go back to the land I am highly gratified that agriculture has picked up contributing to the government’s effort to re-structure the economy Rice imports will stop this year Local rice fresher and more nutritious will be on our dishes from now on By the same token I am today appealing to enterprising Nigerians with ideas and unemployed graduates and other able-bodied and literate men and women with ideas not to just sit and wait for employment from the government or the Organized Private Sector Great nations are built by enterprising people who turn their hands to anything that circumstances dictate In respect of political developments I have kept a close watch on the on-going debate about “Restructuring” No human law or edifice is perfect Whatever structure we develop must periodically be perfected according to changing circumstances and the country’s socio-economic developments We Nigerians can be very impatient and want to improve our conditions faster than may be possible considering our resources and capabilities When all the aggregates of nationwide opinions are considered my firm view is that our problems are more to do with process than structure We tried the Parliamentary system: we jettisoned it Now there are shrill cries for a return to the Parliamentary structure In older democracies these systems took centuries to evolve so we cannot expect a copied system to fit neatly our purposes We must give a long period of trial and improvement before the system we have adopted is anywhere near fit for purpose However there is a strong case for a closer look at the cost of government and for the public services long used to extravagance waste and corruption to change for the better I assure you that government is ever receptive to ideas which will improve governance and contribute to the country’s peace and stability As the electioneering season approaches politicians must avoid exploiting ethnicity and religion by linking ethnicity with religion and religion with politics Such must be avoided at all costs if we are to live in harmony In this respect the rest of Nigeria could learn from the South Western States who have successfully internalized religion ethnicity and politics Political discourse should be conducted with civility decorum and in a constitutional manner We all have a collective responsibility to strengthen our democracy and entrench the rule of law We should draw encouragement from the series of bye-elections conducted by INEC last year which were generally violence free and their outcomes adjudged to be free and fair Before I conclude my address I must reassure my fellow citizens that security of life and property is still top of our government’s agenda We have since beaten Boko Haram Isolated attacks still occur but even the best-policed countries cannot prevent determined criminals from committing terrible acts of terror as we have seen during the past years in Europe Asia Middle East elsewhere in Africa and in America Our government remains determined to protect all Nigerians in line with our election pledge and promises On behalf of all Nigerians let me offer our thanks to the Armed forces the Police other para-military forces and traditional authorities who are working round the clock to ensure that you and I go about our normal business in reasonable safety Terrorism and urban crimes are world-wide phenomena and our security forces are continuously adapting their responses to changing threats With regard to rampant cases of kidnappings we are taking immediate short-term measures to combat this new evil creeping into our societies Tighter police methods and swift and severe punishment for those proved to be engaged in kidnapping are on the way With respect to Niger Delta Government is still engaging responsible leadership of the Communities to help in identifying and addressing genuine grievances of the region Our clean-up programme in collaboration with the United Nations is making satisfactory progress I am grateful to all the Governors and other Political & Community leaders of the Niger Delta States for their part in bringing relative peace to the areas Finally let me again express my heartfelt thanks to all Nigerians who prayed for me during my illness last year I feel deeply humbled by your prayers and good wishes and I am more determined than ever to serve you to the best of my ability Good morning And I wish everyone a Happy New Year Chandigarh, but its core lessons remain just as relevant today.
