From Godwin Tsa, Abuja

A civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has faulted the proposed appointment of another interim administrator for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Besides, HURIWA said it will not hesitate to head to court within 72 hours, if the Commission is controlled by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
While seeking direct control of the NDDC, by the President, the advocacy group equally faulted the illegal transfer of the supervisory purview of the NDDC illegally to the minister of Niger Delta Affairs which directly violates the enabling Act that set up the commission.

This is contained in a statement issued by the National Coordinator of the group, Emmanuel Onwubiko.

Meanwhile, HURIWA has expresssed consternation that the Forensic Audit Report on NDDC and the White Paper on that Report are yet to see the light of the day underlying how so disregarded the NDDC has become within the current administration.

In the statement released on Friday, the group is asking Mr. President thus-: “Why the delay in the implementation of the Recommendations of the Report?
This whole negligence is as a result of the underhand suppression by the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs. This negligence and administrative bottlenecks must be dismantled.

It stated that the proposed appointment of another interim administrator is a nullity and there is a need to arrest the illegality with immediate alacrity.

It is therefore the position of the group that all the actions relating to the NDDC made by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs is null and void because the law states clearly that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the direct supervisor of the Niger Delta Development Commission hence all letters authored by the minister remain absolute and irredeemable illegality.

The group maintained that the President is fundamentally the direct supervisor and no one else but the President or Presidency, adding that the concept of interim administratorship has been a means to siphon money and a corruption funnel.

According to reports, stakeholders in the Niger Delta region raised the alarm over alleged plot by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Umana Okon Umana, to appoint another interim administrator to oversee the affairs of the NDDC.
The stakeholder, under the umbrella of the Centre for Fairness and Accountability (CEFA), claimed the minister, in conjunction with enemies of the region, is spearheading the move to undermine the relative peaceful coexistence in the region.

Reacting, HURIWA’s Onwubiko said, “Section 7 subsection 3 of the NDDC Act is specifically unambiguous and certain that the President, commander in chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is to have direct supervision of NDDC. But since 2016, this President abdicated that statutory duty and left it in the hands of minister of Niger Delta affairs which is unknown to the extant NDDC Act. HURIWA said it is serving a strong notice to Mr.President to stop this statutory breach with immediate effect or be challenged legally in the competent court of law to obtain a mandates to compel total compliance to the law.

“We want to ask President Muhammadu Buhari to adhere to that law or be sued within stipulated pre-litigation notice period to get the Federal High Court to grant us a mandamus to compel compliance. Already our team of legal practitioners are putting finishing touches to our litigation should the illegality be left unchecked with immediate effect.

“The abandonment of NDDC by President Muhammadu Buhari is the reason for the cacophony of corruption in NDDC and he may have done it because it is an institution that ought to benefit the Niger Delta oil producing zone so he is treating that key interventionist agency anyhow by allowing a minister unknown to the extant NDDC ACT to handpick interim administrators when the law said supervision must be by the President.

“One is curious to ask why the North-East Development Commission that came up just two years back is not under the supervisory purview of any minister and so why is NDDC that is far older been treated like an abandon project in clear breach of an extant law.

“The President must sit up to his responsibility and oversee the NDDC correctly and provide leadership as he ought to.”

By this notice, HURIWA hereby ask President Muhammadu Buhari to seize and desist from violating the NDDC ACT within 74 hours or we file an application to the Federal High Court to compel compliance once the statutory pre-litigation notice is observed.

Killexams : My administration’ll prioritise security, infrastructure, power –Oyebanji

From Priscilla Ediare, Ado-Ekiti

As the Ekiti State Governor-elect, Biodun Oyebanji, takes over the mantle of leadership from Governor Kayode Fayemi, he has revealed the key areas his administration will pay attention to.

Identifying security, infrastructure development and providing solution to the perennial epileptic power supply as areas of concentration, the incoming governor said focusing on the three particular areas would help to increase investment drives that would create wealth, and ignite human capital development, through job provision and revenue earnings.

Oyebanji said his administration will recruit “competent, committed, courageous, transparent, and God-fearing people” to make him successful as governor.

The governor-elect, who spoke in Ado Ekiti, yesterday, during an interactive session with newsmen announcing his swearing in, coming up October 16, acknowledged that though Ekiti is confronted with paucity of funds, still he doesn’t see the situation as affecting good leadership as his government is ready to sustain the strong partnerships the state has built with local and international development partners.

Oyebanji added that he has a template and roadmap he would deploy to increase the internally generated revenue (IGR) through effective and affordable tax regime that won’t put pressure or burden on the citizens.

He said he will always rub minds with all the strata of Ekiti to usher in development.

10th annual Champions of Adult Literacy spotlights Faces of Literacy at Harrah’s event

In the past 47 years, more than 20,000 adults have pursued their goals at Delaware County Literacy Council.

Each of these adults worked to Boost their lives and by doing so affected the lives of others. This staggering statistic only hints at the many stories of challenge and triumph experienced by adults who studied with the council since its founding in 1975.

Whether they came to Boost their basic skills, to study for the GED, or to learn English as a new language, these adults worked toward their goals in a welcoming environment where they were taught by highly trained and caring staff members and volunteers. All council services are free and available to adults who reside in Delaware County.

To honor these students and their determination, the council will celebrate Faces of Literacy, the 10th annual Champions of Adult Literacy fundraising event, on Wednesday, Oct. 19 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Harrah’s Racetrack and Casino in Chester.

The evening will include a friendly game of Quizzo team trivia, tasty pub-style food, inspiring student stories, and recognition of the 2022 Champions of Adult Literacy. Tickets and additional information can be found at https://delcoliteracy.org.

Champions will be honored during the event, including Monica Horan Rosenthal, who will receive the 2022 Hometown Hero Champion of Adult Literacy award.

A native of Delaware County and an accomplished actor, Horan Rosenthal is best known for her role as Amy McDougall/Barone on the TV sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

She also appears regularly on the Netflix food-travel series, “Somebody Feed Phil.” Rosenthal appeared in the council’s online telethons in 2020 and 2021 and has provided financial support to the council through the Rosenthal Family Foundation. The foundation currently funds digital literacy classes that are open to Delaware County adults and are offered at local libraries and community organizations.

Sun East Federal Credit Union will be honored as the 2022 Community Champion of Adult Literacy.

Sun East Federal Credit Union is a full-service, nonprofit financial institution that supports local charitable and community outreach initiatives in the Greater Brandywine Valley on its own and through the Sun East Foundation. Sun East has been a partner of the council over the years, providing financial support and inviting adult students to participate in community programs such as the People Helping People essay contest, which recognizes students for their community service.

Theresa Green will be recognized as the 2022 Student Champion of Adult Literacy.

Currently a line cook at Maris Grove retirement community, Green came to the council to Boost her practicing enough to pass the ServSafe test required of all chefs.

She fell in love with cooking during high school and achieved success in a JobCorps culinary program, but life challenges, along with practicing difficulties, were preventing her from pursuing her dream. With help from council’s volunteer gtutor Maureen Fleming, Green improved her practicing skills, passed the ServSafe, and now enjoys cooking in a professional environment.

Delaware County Literacy Council provides free literacy services to local adults, including online and in-person classes in basic adult literacy, ESL, GED preparation, and digital skills, as well as free career services that help people obtain full-time work. To learn more or to get involved, or to order tickets for the Oct. 19 event, visit https://delcoliteracy.org.

DCCC honors 2022 Wong Moss Outstanding Alumni recipient

Dr. James Plummer, administrator for the Division of Population Health for the Delaware County Health Department, has received Delaware County Community College’s 2022 Wong Moss Outstanding Alumni Award. The award is for alumni who personify academic success, professional achievement and a deep commitment to community service.

For nearly five decades, beginning with his role as an Army medical corpsman in 1973, Plummer has made it his mission to help others. Following his tour with the Army, Plummer joined the U.S. Postal Service for a successful 25-year career.

His retirement was short-lived, however, as he joined the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a screening manager from 2002 to 2005.

While the work was rewarding, Plummer felt he had unfinished business and decided to return to the classroom. He re-enrolled at Delaware County Community College to complete his associate in applied science in 2006, then held several managerial roles with the American Red Cross, test One, Rosemont College, Penn Medicine, Crozer-Keystone Health System, Philadelphia University of Osteopathic Medicine and Axia Women’s Health.

Recently, he became the administrator for Population Health with the newly created Delaware County Health Department, which coordinates with community partners, agencies and health care institutions.

It uses public health data to closely examine local communities and identify disparities and health concerns. Key services provided by the division include community health assessment; health education and resources for chronic disease prevention; pandemic emergency preparedness, the department’s Wellness Call Center, and health equity promotion.

Plummer serves on the board of directors for the Penn Foundation and the Delaware County Medical Society. He also volunteers as a fellow with the Thomas Jefferson University Institute of System Wisdoms, the Delta Mu Delta Honor Society at Eastern University, and as a mentor with the Delaware County Community College Alumni Association.

In December, he was named an Outstanding Alumni for his studies and service at Eastern University.

The Wong Moss award was created by the late Barbara Wong Moss, a former trustee, and her son, John Moss, in honor of Barbara’s father, an immigrant from China.

To qualify, award nominees must have successfully completed at least 30 academic credits at the college and exhibited service to others and the community in which they live and work.

Republicans are criticizing the Mills administration for a video on a state educational website that lists former President Donald Trump’s MAGA slogan as an example of what it describes as covert racism.

Other examples include “calling police on Black people,” “not challenging racist jokes” and the statement “all lives matter.”

“Students should be taught reading, writing and math, not a woke curriculum from the Mills administration that teaches kids that they are inherently racist for the beliefs they or their parents support,” Republican Governors Association spokesman Will Reinert said in a written statement.

Maine Department of Education spokesperson Marcus Mrowka stood by the video and said in a written statement Friday that it has been mischaracterized by critics.

He said the video was created by the nonprofit Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine, and linked to a digital lesson about diversity and race that was created by a teacher for other high school-level educators who choose to watch it or share it with students. The DOE hosts educator-created learning “modules” on its public website, but does not require teachers to use them. Mrowka also noted that each module contains a disclaimer that the lessons should be completed “with an educator or adult supervision, feedback and guidance.”

“The Maine Department of Education does not tell teachers or parents what to teach in the classrooms,” Mrowka said. “Decisions about what is taught in a classroom are made by – and always will be made by – teachers, parents, community members and local elected school boards, consistent with the Maine Learning Results and Maine’s longstanding tradition of local control.”

He added, “The Department of Education will continue to support teachers, parents, and elected school boards as they make their own decisions about public education in Maine, despite attacks like these.”

BACKLASH AGAINST ‘WOKE’ EDUCATION

The criticism by Republicans ahead of the November election is the latest backlash against what they call a “woke” public education system.

It comes two days after former Republican Gov. Paul LePage, who is challenging Democratic Gov. Janet Mills, released a proposed parents bill of rights that he framed as fighting back against “extreme woke agendas” of public educators. And earlier this month, LePage campaigned in Lewiston with Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and praised Virginia’s new law that allows parents to review, remove and replace sexually explicit material from school curriculum.

National and state Republicans criticized the racism lesson after the conservative online news outlet Breitbart published a story Wednesday highlighting one slide in the hourlong YouTube video, which was created two years ago by the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine. It wasn’t clear when the learning module linking to the video was first posted on the state website.

Before the video was called out by Breitbart, relatively few people had seen it. The video has been available since June 2, 2020, and had been viewed about 300 times as of Friday. It wasn’t clear how many of those viewers found the video through the learning module.

The video uses an iceberg as a metaphor for racism. Panelists who speak in the video compare explicit forms of racism – lynching, racial slurs and burning crosses – to the exposed portion of the iceberg, and say implicit forms of racism make up the much larger hidden portion.

The slide that sparked the criticism is shown for about 75 seconds. It lists examples of what the nonprofit calls overt and covert forms of racism and white supremacy.

The roughly 50 examples of covert racism include Trump’s MAGA slogan, which stands for Make American Great Again, along with “calling police on Black people,” “not challenging racist jokes,” “mass incarceration” and the statement “all lives matter.”

None of the panelists appearing on the nonprofit’s video discussed or highlighted MAGA as an example of implicit racism.

Before showing the slide, panelist Marpheen Chann notes that biases can form a lens through which a person sees the world, whether the person is aware of them or not.

BIASES FORM A LENS

“Having bias doesn’t necessarily make you a bad person, but it can and does cause harm,” Chann said. “But we each have the moral responsibility to speak up when we see bias, especially explicit bias. And we also have the moral responsibility to learn and grow and address our own implicit biases – the bias we don’t necessarily see.”

Such lessons on implicit bias exploded in popularity as part of diversity, equity and inclusion discussions within private companies, nonprofits, trade associations and educational institutes following George Floyd’s murder by Minnesota police in 2020. Floyd, who was Black, was killed by a white police officer responding to a call about an allegedly counterfeit $20 bill.

This is the second time the DOE has faced Republican criticism for its online learning modules, which were created during the pandemic using $2.8 million in federal funding. The MOOSE program, or Maine Online Opportunities for Sustained Education, contains about 200 voluntary lessons that are available to teachers to use. They are not required as part of a school’s curriculum, which is set at the local level.

In the spring, the DOE removed a video intended for kindergarten teachers who wanted to explain gender identity and same sex relationships to their students. The department took the video off the site after being criticized by Republicans, who used the video in an attack ad against Mills. The Maine Republican Party has re-aired that ad this fall.

Mrowka, the DOE spokesperson, did not respond to a follow-up question about why the DOE removed the LGBTQ video and not the implicit bias video.

Neither the Maine Republican Party nor the Republican Governors Association would say whether it would use the anti-racism lesson in any upcoming campaign ads.

Killexams : Biden administration extends COVID public health emergency

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration said Thursday that the COVID-19 public health emergency will continue through Jan. 11 as officials brace for a spike in cases this winter.

The decision comes as the pandemic has faded from the forefront of many people's minds. Daily deaths and infections are dropping and people — many of them maskless — are returning to schools, work and grocery stores as normal.

The public health emergency, first declared in January 2020 and renewed every 90 days since, has dramatically changed how health services are delivered.

The declaration enabled the emergency authorization of COVID vaccines, testing and treatments for free. It expanded Medicaid coverage to millions of people, many of whom who will risk losing that coverage once the emergency ends. It temporarily opened up telehealth access for Medicare recipients, enabling doctors to collect the same rates for those visits and encouraging health networks to adopt telehealth technology.

Since the beginning of this year, Republicans have pressed the administration to end the public health emergency. President Joe Biden, meanwhile, has urged Congress to provide billions more in aid to pay for COVID-19 vaccines and testing. The federal government ceased sending free COVID-19 tests in the mail last month, saying it had run out of money.

Public health officials are urging people age 5 and older to get an updated COVID-19 booster alongside a flu vaccine this fall before a predicted winter coronavirus surge and a nasty flu season. As of last weekend, about 13 million people had gotten the updated booster, which targets the omicron variant, according to White House COVID-19 coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha.

The administration has said it would provide 60 days notice before it ends the public health emergency.

Killexams : Biden administration launches environmental justice office

Article content

WARRENTON, N.C. (AP) — President Joe Biden’s top environment official visited what is widely considered the birthplace of the environmental justice movement Saturday to unveil a national office that will distribute $3 billion in block grants to underserved communities burdened by pollution.

Forty years after a predominantly Black community in Warren County, North Carolina, rallied against hosting a hazardous waste landfill, Michael Regan, the first Black man to serve as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, announced he is dedicating a new senior level of leadership to the environmental justice movement they ignited.

Article content

The Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights — comprised of more than 200 current staff members in 10 U.S. regions — will merge three existing EPA programs to oversee a portion of Democrats’ $60 billion investment in environmental justice initiatives created by the Inflation Reduction Act. The president will nominate an assistant administrator to lead the new office, pending Senate confirmation.

“In the past, many of our communities have had to compete for very small grants because EPA’s pot of money was extremely small,” Regan said in an interview. “We’re going from tens of thousands of dollars to developing and designing a program that will distribute billions. But we’re also going to be sure that this money goes to those who need it the most and those who’ve never had a seat at the table.”

Biden has championed environmental justice as a centerpiece of his climate agenda since his first week in office, when he signed an executive order pledging 40% of the overall benefits from certain federal clean energy investments to disadvantaged communities overwhelmed by pollution.

Now, Regan said, this new office intertwines environmental justice with the central fabric of the EPA, equating it to other top offices like air and water, and cementing its principles in a way that will outlive the administration.

North Carolina in 1978 designated Warren County, a small, predominantly Black farming community along the Virginia border, as a disposal site for truckloads of soil laced with highly carcinogenic chemical compounds that later contaminated the water supply.

As the first trucks rolled into town in 1982, hundreds of residents flooded the streets, blocking their path to the landfill. Though they were unable to shut down the operation after six weeks of nonviolent protests and more than 500 arrests, their efforts have been lauded by civil rights leaders as the impetus for a global uprising against environmental racism in minority communities.

Wayne Moseley, 73, was one of the initial protesters arrested on the first day of the demonstration. The Raleigh resident commuted to Warren County to march on behalf of his mother, whose health prevented her from participating. He called Saturday’s ceremony “a homecoming” for himself and many other protesters he hadn’t seen for 40 years.

“We became a family, no Black or white, no rich or poor — we were all one,” Moseley said. “The state was hell-bent on putting that dump site here. I knew we couldn’t stop it, but we could elevate the consciousness of not only the state but the nation.”

Dollie Burwell, a protest leader known in the community as “the mother of the movement,” honored the bravery of her late daughter Kimberly Burwell, who was only 8 years old when she joined her mother on the frontlines.

“She stood up and led so many children in the protests,” Burwell said of her daughter during the ceremony. “She was not afraid of being arrested. But she was afraid of her family and friends getting cancer” from carcinogenic compounds in the soil.

Government officials have routinely targeted low-income communities of color like Warren County to host hazardous waste facilities since the early 1900s. And the neglect of critical infrastructure in predominantly Black communities, ranging from Flint, Michigan, to Jackson, Mississippi, has led to problems still seen today.

An April study by the University of California, Berkeley and Columbia University found that the majority of Black and Latino neighborhoods that received low scores in a discriminatory federal housing program known as redlining were home to twice as many oil wells as majority white communities. According to the Clean Air Task Force, Black Americans are 75% more likely than white Americans to live near a factory or plant and nearly four times as likely to die from exposure to pollutants.

The Rev. Dr. William Barber II, a prominent social activist and leader of the Poor People’s campaign, said he sees Regan’s announcement as “a great starting point” and will continue to demand more of the Biden administration.

“Our votes are not support. Our votes are our demands,” Barber said in an interview. “This is not about right versus left, it’s about right versus wrong. This is about a lifestyle versus disability because when you poison the land and the water, you hurt people’s everyday life.”

Regan, who is from Goldsboro, North Carolina, said he grew up listening to local civil rights leaders like Barber and Burwell — the early inspirations for his work at the EPA.

“I’m taking all of these experiences (from my childhood) and matching that with the vision of the president,” Regan said. “We’re using this opportunity to not only honor those who came before us, but we’re building on the work that they started. We’re standing on their shoulders and trying to reach higher heights.”

Just 45 days out from the midterm election, Regan is among several Cabinet members visiting North Carolina this month to promote the president’s achievements, including the visits of Vice President Kamala Harris on Sept. 1 and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen next Tuesday in Durham. Democrats have set their sights on the Southern swing state as a potential pickup in the narrowly divided U.S. Senate and other key offices.

This version has been updated to clarify that Regan is the first Black man to serve as EPA administrator.

Killexams : Province installs administrator in Chestermere due to council's escalating 'dysfunction': minister

Minister Ric McIver said recent events indicate 'a degree of intra-council conflict that I believe puts at risk council's ability to govern effectively'

Article content

The province has installed a referee to monitor Chestermere city council, prompted by what Municipal Affairs Minister Ric McIver called “increasing dysfunction” among the city’s elected officials.

Still the subject of a provincial investigation into its governance — the first of its kind in Alberta since 2018 — Chestermere’s council will now require the OK from an “official administrator” for many of its decisions. In a written statement to Postmedia, McIver said the department has been aware of “significant governance concerns” relating to Chestermere for several months, which led him to order the municipal inspection in May.

Article content

“This type of inspection of a municipal council in Alberta is very unusual, and I do not take this kind of action lightly,” said McIver, issuing his first public statement on the investigation. “However, the dysfunction within Chestermere’s council has continued to escalate, requiring further action.”

The ministerial order was issued Wednesday, appointing an official administrator — longtime public servant Douglas Lagore — to the city. Under the Municipal Government Act, an official administrator has the authority to quash any resolution or bylaw council passes up to 30 days after its approval and is required to sign off on some council decisions before they can take effect. McIver said Lagore won’t interfere with regular city business but “will not approve any council decisions that will contribute to further council dysfunction.”

The move comes directly after two contentious council meetings. On Sept. 20, council approved more than 100 code of conduct investigations into three councillors, and on Tuesday Mayor Jeff Colvin presented a more than 50-page document containing dozens of emails and portions of a Postmedia article he claimed as evidence of the councillors’ misconduct.

The considerable number of code of conduct investigations launched over the past few months focused solely on the actions of three councillors — Ritesh Narayan, Shannon Dean and Sandy Johal-Watt — whose complaints to Municipal Affairs triggered the provincial investigation.

Colvin and councillors Mel Foat, Stephen Hanley and Blaine Funk — who were the main subjects of the other three’s complaints — were the majority vote behind all of the conduct investigations. The same bloc also voted to sanction Narayan on Tuesday, removing him from city committees and muzzling him with a cease and desist letter, partly for comments he made to Postmedia regarding his concerns over recent events.

In a Wednesday letter to the mayor and council from McIver, which was obtained by Postmedia, the minister pointed to those two recent meetings and the feud among council as the spark for the province to step in.

“I have taken this action at this time because I am deeply troubled by the continued escalation of conflict within council, as demonstrated at the September 20 and 27, 2022, council meetings where council launched 100 investigations for alleged code of conduct complaints,” McIver wrote. “The use of the code of conduct in this manner, and to this magnitude, indicates a degree of intra-council conflict that I believe puts at risk council’s ability to govern effectively and in the best interests of your residents.”

In a text message to Postmedia, Colvin said he’s kept the department apprised of the alleged violations by the three councillors, “especially Coun. Narayan’s alleged infractions.” He framed the province’s decision to step in to be a result of that correspondence, despite McIver indicating otherwise in his letter to council and his statement on the matter.

“Prior to (Minister McIver’s) order on Sept. 28, 2022, on behalf of council I sent Minister McIver a letter outlining our concerns on various actions that have been occurring within the city. One of them being the code of conducts being discussed,” Colvin said in a written statement.

The mayor said the city will send a full accounting of the alleged infractions, including the document presented Tuesday, to the department and reiterated that all of the council-related investigations are conducted by a third party.

University of Calgary political scientist Lisa Young said installing an official within a municipality is a rare and significant step for a provincial government. The province typically leaves local governments to manage their own affairs.

“To appoint an administrator like this really does speak to there being a significant issue or set of issues,” she said. “This doesn’t go as far as ordering a new election or somehow dissolving the council, but it certainly does speak to provincial government’s concern about the city.”

Municipal Affairs officials are expected to present the inspection report to council for feedback sometime this fall. The report will then be made public and the minister will make recommendations or orders as to how the situation should be remedied, which can include actions as severe as removing elected officials from office. 

McIver said the official administrator will serve as a “bridge” until the investigation is finalized. Lagore will remain at the city at least until the end of January 2023, and longer if the minister deems it necessary.

“The decision to appoint an official administrator is never made lightly,” McIver said in his statement. “However, increasing dysfunction among members of Chestermere city council cannot be allowed to put the well-being of the community at risk. Alberta’s government is taking the necessary approach to restore good governance and protect the citizens and community of Chestermere.”
