Private, Public Agencies Agree to Regulate Land, Property Valuation

first_imgOne of the working groups in session (pic: By J.G. Cephas) By Jos Garneo CephasPublic and private sector institutions in Liberia have agreed to establish a standardized and self-regulatory system for land and property valuation in land governance.The idea to have a self-regulatory regime for setting standards evolved out of proposals from representatives of participating institutions at a two-day Land and Property Assessment Dialogue organized by the Liberia Land Authority (LLA) with support from the USAID-Land Governance Support Activity in Liberia.The dialogue took place last week at a resort in Monrovia.Several speakers pointed out the problems and challenges the land governance and administration have been faced with over the years.Henry Demawu, Public Works Ministry’s chief architect, called for a data system to avoid overlapping of functions by government agencies.Mr. Demawu noted that failure to carry out early planning has reduced Monrovia and other major cities in Liberia to slums. This is challenging and is causing limitations for us to monitor problems related to zoning in the country although we have two architects at the Ministry of Public Works, he said.The Liberia Institute of Architects and Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) also called for the establishment of a code of ethics and collaboration between appraisers and property owners to enhance the standards in order to promote fair play.Ms. Ellen Pratt, Commissioner for Land Use and Management of the LLA, lauded the private-public sector initiative and pledged government’s support in forming a new self-regulatory group and the realization of their objectives.Ms. Pratt said, “I’m happy for and on behalf of our partner, USAID-LGSA and the Liberia Land Authority, and we want to encourage you to make the best out of the knowledge we all have shared. As from today you have an active role to play in the land reform process of Liberia.”The President of Caesar Architects, Inc., Augustus Caesar, was chosen as coordinator of a ten member ad-hoc technical working group leading to the adoption of the future organization’s name, work plan and incorporation.Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, Mr. Caesar thanked the Liberia Land Authority for organizing such an important dialogue aimed at discussing challenges and problems regarding land governance and called on his colleagues to collaborate for their goals to be realized.Participating in the dialogue were the Liberia Institute of Architects, Association of Professional Land Surveyors of Liberia, the Liberia Bankers Association and representatives of several government ministries and agencies.Organization representatives who participated in the dialogue (Pic: J.

Tunisia win on penalties to end 54-year dominance by Ghana

first_imgVictory was sweet for Tunisia as they had lost six times to Ghana in the African football showcase from 1965 after drawing the first meeting between the nations two years earlier.On Thursday, the Carthage Eagles play giantkillers Madagascar in a quarter-final in Cairo with the winners meeting Senegal or Benin for a place in the July 19 final.Losing on penalties ended a Ghana run of six consecutive top-four finishes in the Cup of Nations and puts the future of coach Kwesi Appiah in doubt.Four-time former champions Ghana changed two of the team that began a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau that enabled them to pip Cameroon for top spot in Group F on goals scored.Both alterations were on the left side of a 4-3-3 formation with defender Nuhu Kasim and midfielder Afriyie Acquah replacing Joseph Aidoo and Owusu Kwabena.Tunisia coach and 1980s France star Alain Giresse reacted to an embarrassing 0-0 draw with minnows Mauritania in their previous match by dropping four of the team.– Big surprise –A big surprise was the exclusion of forward Wahbi Khazri, who had been the outstanding Tunisian attacker in the group phase and scored one of their two goals.Bassem Srarfi, Naim Sliti and Karim Aouadhi were also relegated to the bench with Ghaylen Chaalali, Ferjani Sassi, Taha Yassine Khenissi and Anice Badri promoted.After early yellow cards for Ghanaian John Boye, the first player to be red-carded in the group phase, and Tunisian Dylan Bronn, the first half became a cagey, even affair.Ghana came close to scoring on 16 minutes when a Kasim header struck the post and Andre Ayew fired the rebound straight at goalkeeper Hassen Mouez.Andre Ayew was convinced he had put the Black Stars ahead on 41 minutes when he backheeled a cross into the net, but the referee ruled that Thomas Partey handled in the build-up.Replays showed the ball touching the chin of the Atletico Madrid midfielder rather than a hand and the disallowed goal infuriated the Ghanaians.Midway through the second half Giresse had second thoughts about the composition of his attack, which was making little impression, and sent on Khazri in place of Badri.Khazri needed just five minutes to make an impact with his brilliant backheel creating space for Wajdi Kechrida to cross and Khenissi scored with a shot that went in off the near post.The woodwork foiled Ghana a second time when a Mubarak Wakaso shot from outside the box struck the far post 10 minutes from the end of regular time with Mouez beaten.In the first minute of stoppage time, the Blacks Stars drew level with an attempted headed clearance by Bedoui looped over Mouez, who had strayed off his line.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tunisia progressed to the quarter finals of the Africa Cup of Nations after beating Ghana on penalties.Ismailia, Egypt, Jul 9 – Tunisia defeated Ghana 5-4 on penalties Monday with Ferjani Sassi converting the decisive spot-kick to end a 54-year Africa Cup of Nations losing streak against the Black Stars.  After a 1-1 draw following extra time in Ismailia, Tunisia scored from all five penalties while Ghana substitute Caleb Ekusan had his attempt saved by Farouk Ben Mustapha, who came off the bench especially for the shootout.last_img read more
