New citizenship oath to include reference to treaties with Indigenous Peoples

first_imgA revised oath of citizenship that will require new Canadians to faithfully observe the country’s treaties with Indigenous Peoples is nearly complete.The proposed new text was put to focus groups held by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in March, following months of consultation by departmental officials.It reads: “I swear (or affirm) that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, her heirs and successors, and that I will faithfully observe the laws of Canada including treaties with Indigenous Peoples, and fulfil my duties as a Canadian citizen.”The language comes from the 94th and final recommendation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which examined the legacy of Canada’s residential schools.Implementing that recommendation was one of the tasks given to Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen when he was sworn into his portfolio in January 2017, but work on it began soon after the commission delivered its recommendations in late 2015, briefing notes for the minister suggest.The notes, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, show the government also wants to modify the script delivered by those who preside over citizenship ceremonies. The proposed notes say the script should refer to ceremonies taking place on traditional territories, and include remarks on the history of Indigenous Peoples.When it comes to the oath, the inclusion of a reference to treaties is the only proposed change.Changing the wording requires a legislative amendment to the Citizenship Act. The Liberals are currently in the process of overhauling the act in a bid to make citizenship easier to obtain.When the proposed text was put to focus groups composed of both recent immigrants and longtime Canadian residents, reaction was generally positive, according to a report posted online by the Immigration department this week.But there was a caveat: “Participants only agreed with the modifications insofar as newcomers are adequately educated about Indigenous Peoples and the treaties,” the report said.“Many felt that they themselves would struggle with this new formulation, given their own limited knowledge of the treaties.”Some wondered about the need for changes at all.“A few participants took it upon themselves to question the need to modify the oath and that it might represent a precedent whereby other groups in Canada will want to be represented in the oath,” the report said.The new oath comes along with a major overhaul of the study guide used for the citizenship exam. A draft copy obtained by The Canadian Press earlier this year revealed it, too, will include extensive references to Indigenous history and culture.The Liberals had originally been aiming to unveil both the new guide and oath around Canada Day, but work is ongoing.last_img read more

Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia

first_imgWashington DC: Donald Trump’s campaign did not conspire with Russia during the 2016 election won by him, according to a summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report submitted to Congress on Sunday, in a major relief to the embattled US President on an issue that has cast a shadow on his presidency for nearly two years. In a four-page letter to top lawmakers on Sunday, Attorney General William Barr highlighted two sections of the long-awaited Mueller report — Russia’s efforts to affect the 2016 presidential election and whether President Trump obstructed justice. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe report was submitted on Friday to Barr, who reviewed the document before handing a summary to Congress. Trump, who repeatedly described the inquiry as a “witch hunt”, said on Sunday “it was a shame that the country had to go through this”, describing the inquiry as an “illegal takedown that failed”. Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey and other actions throughout the probe raised concerns about the president trying to end the investigation. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsMueller, who spent nearly two years investigating Moscow’s determined effort to sabotage the last presidential election, found no conspiracy “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign,” Barr wrote in the letter to lawmakers. Mueller’s team drew no conclusions about whether Trump illegally obstructed justice, Barr said, so he made his own decision. The attorney general and his deputy, Rod J Rosenstein, determined that the special counsel’s investigators had insufficient evidence to establish that the president committed that offense. Barr cautioned that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him” on the obstruction of justice issue. The investigation had cast a shadow over the Trump presidency for nearly two years with the Democratic leadership alleging that Russian interference helped him in the 2016 polls. Barr said that Mueller found no proof of such a conspiracy “despite multiple offers from Russia-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign”. “The special counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 US presidential election,” the attorney general said. “For each of the relevant actions investigated, the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the special counsel views as ‘difficult issues’ of law and fact concerning whether the president’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction,” Barr said, adding Mueller “ultimately determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment”. The release of the findings was a significant political victory for Trump who described it as a “complete and total exoneration”. Terming the allegation of collusion “the most ridiculous thing ever”, Trump said, “It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest it’s a shame that your president had to go through this.” “This was an illegal takedown that failed and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at their other side,” Trump said. “After a long look, after a long investigation, after so many people have been so badly hurt, after not looking at the other side where a lot of bad things happened… it was just announced there was no collusion with Russia,” he said. The Democrats were banking heavily on the results of Mueller’s investigation to defeat Trump in the 2020 elections. Many were also talking about impeaching the president if the report reveals collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. While the president and his allies saw vindication in Barr’s letter, Democrats questioned how Barr came to his conclusions and called for more information from Mueller’s report. Citing “concerning discrepancies”, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said he planned to call the attorney general to testify. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement that Barr’s letter “raises as many questions as it answers” and called for access to the full report. “For the president to say he is completely exonerated directly contradicts the words of Mueller and is not to be taken with any degree of credibility,” the statement said. Barr’s letter could be just the beginning of a lengthy constitutional battle between Congress and the Justice Department about whether Mueller’s full report will be made public. Democrats have also called for the attorney general to turn over all of the special counsel’s investigative files. Barr’s letter said that his “goal and intent” was to release as much of the Mueller report as possible, but warned that some of the report was based on grand jury material that “by law cannot be made public”. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the report has justified the president’s stand. Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said this is a great day for all Americans. “As we have said all along, there was no collusion and no obstruction. Now that this investigation is over, Democrats need to finally end their baseless investigations and political crusade against President Trump for the good of the country,” she said.last_img read more

Calling all Alumni…

Brendan Pilgrim, third-year Spanish student, is one of many Annual Fund student callersBailey Berlett (BKin ‘09) knows first-hand the importance of the Annual Fund at Brock University.The recent graduate and former Annual Fund caller has personally used the facilities and services on campus that are made possible through contributions by alumni, parents and staff.As a student Annual Fund caller, Bailey said she had “the opportunity to speak to countless alumni with amazing life experiences, update them on campus life and let them know how much students appreciate the contributions they make towards Brock.”Last year, the Annual Fund raised $1.3 million towards the $75-million Campaign for a Bold New Brock. Of that, $115,000 was raised through gifts of $100 or less. The campaign is raising funds to increase endowments for student financial assistance, invest in teaching and research facilities, expand knowledge, and empower faculty as educator-researchers and innovators.Student callers are often intimidated and uncomfortable when they first start asking alumni to donate to Brock.“But after a few calls they realize that Brock’s alumni enjoyed their time here and are more than willing to support the university,” said Shannon Gill (BBA ’95, BA ’00), manager of the Annual Fund. “The students get a great deal of satisfaction from reconnecting alumni to Brock, hearing about their memories, and updating them about changes to the campus.”As one graduate put it: “The caller had me all jazzed up about Brock University all over again with her descriptions of all the changes (and how Brock once was). I love Brock University and I have benefited from the university with both my education and my own experience with student clubs, groups and organizations.”In recognition of National Philanthropy Day on Nov. 15, Annual Fund student callers phoned Brock University donors to thank them for their continued support. “The calls were well received,” said Gill. “Donors were appreciative of the gesture and enjoyed speaking with the students. Some were surprised we were calling to simply thank them.”If you’re a Brock grad, you’ll be receiving a call about the Annual Fund soon, if you haven’t already.

UN environment agency announces new talks on hazardous waste treaty

Participants will be discussing technical guidelines for the environmentally sound management of waste lead-acid batteries, metal and metal compounds, plastic wastes, persistent organic pollutants, and the dismantling of ships. These are all covered by the Basel Convention on the Control of the Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal. In addition, the experts will consider adjusting the lists of wastes considered hazardous or non-hazardous under the treaty, and will debate proposals on asphalt wastes and edible oil wastes, like frying oils. The Basel Convention was adopted in March 1989 after a series of notorious “toxic cargoes” from industrialized countries drew public attention to the dumping of hazardous wastes in developing and East European countries, according to UNEP. The treaty, which has 149 parties, obliges its members to ensure that such wastes are managed and disposed of in an environmentally sound manner. Governments are expected to minimize the quantities that are transported, to treat and dispose of wastes as close as possible to where they were generated, and to minimize the generation of hazardous waste. read more

What ever happened to Fine Gaels Five Point Plan

first_imgWe have renegotiated Ireland’s bailout loans, saving Irish taxpayers €9 billion. We’ve closed down Anglo and Irish Nationwide, and the renegotiated deal on the Promissory Notes will cut our borrowing costs by €20 billion over the next ten years and, of course, we have successfully exited the bailout.Through burden-sharing with junior bondholders and securing private capital investment, the cost of recapitalising the banks has been halved.We’re on track to meet our deficit reduction targets, income tax has been maintained and we have safeguarded our corporation tax rate. We continue to push our European colleagues for retroactive recapitalisation of Irish banks. BACK IN THE 2011 general election campaign, we all heard a lot about Fine Gael’s Five Point Plan.There were promises of job creation, political reform and taking on the bondholders. Now, almost three years on, we have exited the bailout and Fine Gael is still the most popular party in the country, but how many of those promises did they keep?A spokesperson for the party said that, while the programme for government sets out the coalitions priorities, rather than solely those of Fine Geal, “significant progress has been made” in implementing the Five Point Plan.1. Jobs: Protecting and Creating JobsThe plan, and the campaign overall, put a great emphasis on jobs, promising to create, on average, 20,000 each year.While there are no concrete figures for the total number of jobs created across industries, the number of people in employment increased by 58,000 in 2013 and the Fine Gael spokesperson was also eager to reference these “58,000 new jobs”. Just recently IDA Ireland announced its client companies created 13,367 jobs, having created 12,722 the previous year.(Image: James Horan/Photocall Ireland)However, despite the numerous jobs announcements over the last few years, unemployment has remained high, with most recent statistics putting it at 12.4 per cent, and it has been argued that much of the recent decline can be attributed to emigration.WelfareChanges to the welfare system to encourage job creation also formed part of the plan and while the government has hailed some of its initiatives, like Jobridge, as a success, it has been the subject of a number of controversies.BusinessAs the Fine Gael spokesperson pointed out, the plan promised to make Ireland one of the best countries in the would in which to do business and last month Forbes said we were actually the best.(Image: Brian Lawless/PA)As part of this, the plan also pledged to cut employers PRSI tax, which it did in May 2011 (but recently reversed), and to abolish the air departure tax, a measure which was announced in Budget 2014. NewEra has been established to manage commercial investment in the areas of energy, broadband and water, and to manage State assets effectively to maximise their potential.The economy has grown for three consecutive years following four years of decline, though exports have played a huge part in this while GNP growth still suffers.2. Budget: Fixing the deficit – jobs protected by no income tax increases and cutting wasteOn this point, the Fine Gael spokesperson told us the party has made “major progress”. Despite this progress, our deficit remains at over €7 billion.In the Five Point Plan, Fine Gael also said it would “take on the big vested interests that have contributed to the current crisis – the bankers, the bondholders, the developers and the unions”. We’ll leave it to you guys to decide whether or not they were successful on that point.3. Public Sector: Smaller, better government – services you need are prioritised over back-room wasteThe Five Point Plan said our public sector was “too large, too inefficient and too expensive”.With eventual success in negotiations with public sector unions on the two public pay agreements, it could be argued that Fine Gael has kept its promise to cut waste in the public services.The party’s spokesperson said:Public service numbers are nearly 30,000 or 9 per cent below the peak of 320,000 in 2008. By 2015, public service numbers will be at 282,500; an overall reduction of 37,000. These reductions have cut the public sector pay bill by €3 billion.However there were many criticisms of the government’s handling of the negotiations and many said the cuts did not go far enough.(Image: Julien Behal/PA)It also promised to “improve the quality of public services by prioritising frontline services – that’s teachers, health professionals, gardaí, local authority services”.Over the past three years, most of the workers who fall into these groups have taken some kind of industrial action because of cuts. While the bulk of their opposition was in relation to pay, many of the frontline workers also voiced concerns that certain moves, like closing garda stations for example, would significantly impact on the services they provide.(Image: Fine Gael/Flickr)One area in which the Fine Gael seems to be moving slowly is in its commitment to merge or abolish 145 quangos. Despite an announcement at the start of 2012 that this would be done with 48 quangos, the process has been completed with just 43 to date with 63 still in the process of rationalisation.4. Politics: Politicians taking the leadThe number of TDs will be cut at the next election and the number of councillors will also be reduced by a third, in keeping with the plan’s promise to reduce the number of politicians by 35 per cent. On top of this the government is abolishing 80 town councils, three county councils and seven regional assemblies.Shared services for the public service have been established, and the local government reform plan, Putting People First, will deliver €450 million in savings, according to Fine Gael. The local government model is set to “change significantly” this year, according to Minister Phil Hogan, with property tax funds finally being used to fund local services and Irish Water taking over the delivery of water services.ReformThe Fine Gael spokesperson said:On the issue of ‘New Politics’, we have cut politicians’ pay and expenses and we’ve increased Dáil sitting days by a third. Gender quotas will bring more women into politics and the Constitutional Convention is giving citizens a direct voice.Despite these reforms, the Taoiseach has ruled out any prospect of loosening the strict party whip system that applies to votes in the Dáil and Seanad.The party has also pointed out that, as promised, a referendum was held on the abolition of the Seanad. However the government’s campaign, led by Fine Gael TD and Minister Ricahard Bruton, was not a success with 51.7 per cent of people in the country voting to keep the Seanad.While the spokesperson conceded the government has reduced the number of Oireachtas committees, they pointed out that legislation has been published to “strengthen their powers”.“We have have delivered on other specific commitments, such as legislation to strengthen Freedom of Information, give whistle-blowers greater protection and establish a register for lobbyists,” they said.The Freedom of Information legislation was a contentious issue in the later half of 2013, as Minister Brendan Howlin sought to add an amendment to the new bill which would have increased charges and then later backtracked.5. Health: A completely new healthcare systemA completely new healthcare system may have been an ambitious aim to begin with and there has been no end to criticisms of the government’s management of it since taking power. The bulk of this criticism has been levelled at Minister for Health James Reilly, with numerous calls for him to resign over the last three years.(Image: Laura Hutton Photocall Ireland)Most recently, the HSE has been slammed for failing to identify issues with payments to high-level staff in some of the voluntary organisations it funds.The removal of discretionary medical cards from some vulnerable groups in society in Budget 2014 has been one of the most contentious topics and a further €619 million will be cut from spending this year.Primary care and waiting listsFigures in February last year showed that 72,000 people were still on primary care waiting lists despite Fine Gael’s promise to “see to it that a network of purpose built primary care centres is delivered”. The party has said this week that more people are being treated in the community through the roll out of primary care centres with approximately one primary care centre being opened a month, and 34 completed since they took office.Special Delivery Units have been established to tackle waiting lists and so far the number of people on trolleys has been cut by a third 0verall, with some progress on reducing the time people have to wait for in-patient treatments.(Image: Shutterstock)Just this week, figures showed that almost 60,000 people were still forced to wait on trolleys in Emergency Departments across the country last year – an increase on the previous year. More than 2,100 beds have also been closed in the past five years.Free GP careOne of the positive announcements in Budget 2014, was the introduction of free GP care for children aged 5 and under, though not everyone was so supportive of it. Reilly said that this was the first step in rolling out free GP care to everyone by 2016.As set out in the Five Point Plan, the introduction of Universal Health Insurance will take two terms in government, but the party said it will “continue to put the building blocks in place to allow this to happen”.SmokingA major success for Reilly has been in the campaign to reduce the number of people smoking. He was very active in encouraging the European Parliament to pass a vote on cigarette packaging, and there are now just a couple if hospitals across the country which do not have a smoke free campus.(Image: Niall Carson/PA)“Work will continue”“Just over half way through the Government’s term in office, Fine Gael has succeeded in implementing a significant majority of its Five Point Plan to get Ireland working,” the Fine Gael spokesperson told this week. “This work will continue for the remainder of this government’s term.”If you’re interested in reading the plan in full, you can find it here.Read: Fine Gael tops latest poll as Taoiseach sees jump in satisfaction levels>Poll: How would you vote if a general election was held today?>last_img read more

Samsung adds MultiWindow and Premium Features to the Galaxy S3 41 update

first_imgSamsung has worked hard to set their version of Android apart from the rest, especially in Android 4.0. With the update to Android 4.1, Samsung is seeking to add some new features to the Galaxy S3%displayPrice% at %seller%, including the Multi-Window feature found on the Galaxy Note 2.Samsung is offering a suite of new features to Galaxy S3 owners who have been eagerly awaiting the next version of Android on their smartphones. When each carrier pushes the Jelly Bean update to the Galaxy S3, there will be several new “premium” features available to the users. Some of the features that have been announced so far include a Facebook ticker on your lockscreen and the ability to embed more than just time and location into your photos — you’ll be able to include comments, facial tags, and other contextual information. Each of these features will need to be enabled separately, which means crawling through Samsung’s increasingly complicated menu system to locate the individual features. The big feature announced by Samsung today though, and the one that will be used by the most people, is Multi-Window support.Originally released with the Galaxy Note 10.1, and then again with the Galaxy Note 2, Samsung’s Multi-Window feature enables the user to run two apps on the same screen at the same time. Unlike the current definition of multitasking for iOS and Android, where applications run in the background and you only have control over one app at a time, Multi-Window enables the user to have two apps running on the screen, with a bar splitting the screen in half so you can interact with each app separately. Originally this feature was only available to Samsung apps, but over time many developers have enabled support for the feature. Now, the feature supports most apps in the Google Play Store.These new features will be available as soon as your carrier pushes the Android 4.1 update to your phone. This means that not all Galaxy S3 users will have access to the feature at the same time. Based on previous update delays, it could be weeks or even months before the update is available on every Galaxy S3. Samsung plans to unveil more premium features that will be included in the update soon, so stay tuned.via SamsungTomorrowlast_img read more

PS4 game with 65word title releasing in Japan next month

first_imgWhen coming up with a title for a new game, developers have to think of something memorable, or descriptive, or ideally both. Really it needs to be as short as possible, or easy to shorten by gamers. For example, Call of Duty is commonly referred to as CoD, and Metal Gear Solid is MGS. However, Japanese gamers are about to get a brand new PS4 (and PS3) game on store shelves with a game title that’s 65 words long.The game is a love simulator from D3 Publisher, which has a long history of publishing some rather excellent games (for example: Bangai-O, Earth Defense Force, Blue Dragon, Puzzle Quest, White Knight Chronicles II, and the Simple series). But this latest game has by far the longest title the publisher has released, and may in fact be the longest ever game title.The short version of the title is simply Summertime High School. The full title reads as follows:Summertime High School. A Young Man’s Notes – How a New Exchange Student Like Myself Ran Into His Childhood Friend On The School Tour, Then For Some Reason Became Super-Popular With The Girls For His Daily Scoops On The School Photography Club Even Though He Only Takes Panty Shots, And What He Thinks As He Goes On Dates During His Summer Of Island School Life.I doubt any gamers will be asking if a store has this game in stock by saying the entire title. And even if they did, I’m sure the employee would stop them long before they’ve finished with a “yes” or “no.” In fact, they may manage to process payment and have the game ready in a bag before those 65 words have finished being said.The gameplay of Summertime High School revolves around the main character sneaking up on girls and taking panty shots without being caught. As the trailer above shows, you can be caught by the girls, and chased by security guards.Will we see this game heading to Western shores? Before Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed was released in the US and across Europe I would have said no, but now I’m not so sure. One thing I can guarantee: if it does head West, the title will be 3 words long, or changed completely.last_img read more

first_img Comments   Share   We’re a month away from the draft and things are starting to come more and more into view with what the Cardinals’ needs are for draft night 2013.But while the needs for the Cardinals may be coming into focus, there was a specific draft I have wanted to see the Cardinals come away with in rounds one and two.Rounds 3-6 have changed, as the Cardinals have added and lost players in free agency, but the idea remains the same. Round 5: Nick Kasa, TE ColoradoI’ve talked about the possibility of adding a tight end early because of the importance they play in Arians’ offense, but with no movement on the Jeff King front, I think adding a player that will need a little work in round five, but possesses starter upside, is the perfect fit.Kasa would be able to come in and immediately get playing time as a blocking tight end in the running game, and even present a seam threat in the vertical passing game.Round 6: Uzoma Nwachukwu, WR Texas A&MI know, another WR, that’s crazy.The problem is we still don’t know if Josh Cribbs is going to sign in Arizona, and until he does the Cardinals are surprisingly thin at the position.Uzoma is the deep threat from the slot or outside position that Arians loves to develop; see Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders, T.Y. Hilton, etc., and is a viable option in the kick return game.Having a deep threat in the Arians offense is important, and Nwachukwu would be that option, and if he develops to more, well that’s just one less free agent the Cardinals have to re-sign in 2014 in Andre Roberts.Round 6: Michael Mauti, LB Penn StI have been pretty adamant that the Cardinals need to avoid injury or off-field risk players, even if I see high upside like Marcus Lattimore, Quanterus Smith (my personal favorite pass rusher in the draft) or Ray Ray Armstrong, but Mauti is different. Round 3: D.J. Swearinger, FS South CarolinaOne of the things I have changed my mind on over and over is where the Cardinals would address their secondary needs.Well, in free agency they did a great job of finding quality, young cornerbacks for cheap, but the combination of Rashad Johnson and Yeremiah Bell as the only safety options doesn’t appeal to me.Enter Swearinger, the heat-seeking missile of a free safety prospect.Adding Swearinger as a free safety gives the Cardinals some versatility in their secondary, as he is excellent in coverage and run support and can even move down into a slot position in man coverage if needed.Round 4: Michael Buchanan, OLB IllinoisBuchanan was well on his way to becoming a day two pick before breaking his jaw and losing a lot of weight in the 2012 off season.This led to a down senior year for Buchanan, and his stock staying steady as a day three prospect because of his upside as a pass rusher.If Buchanan can continue to put on the weight while maintaining his quick lateral movement and first step burst, he could become a nice option as a situational pass rusher.The reason I think Buchanan could become and every down force though is because he already looks comfortable dropping into short-area coverage, and that is one of the hardest aspects in making the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Mauti has shown the ability to be a big-time inside linebacker, contribute on special teams and be a defensive leader, even when not on the field.I am not saying the others do not possess that last trait, but Mauti’s coach on the sideline-type attitude would be such an asset, even if he doesn’t step foot on the field for the Cardinals.He’s a player that is worth the risk, because the reward would be huge.While I know the likelihood of any of these picks happening is slim, this is how I would attack the Cardinals’ 2013 draft if I was in charge, though it’s probably a good thing I am not. Top Stories So for all those that have asked “What would you do if you were the Arizona Cardinals?” Here’s my answer.Note: I am taking players based off of where I see them being available, so this will be as realistic as possible.Round 1: Chance Warmack, OG AlabamaCardinals add a player like Warmack to what has been a terrible run blocking team, and a team that gives up constant pressure in the passing game from the middle of the offensive line.Warmack adds a physical interior presence and should help the left tackle in pass pro if it’s Levi Brown, or in the run game if it’s Nate Potter. Round 2: Larry Warford, OG KentuckyBack to back picks on perhaps the position with the least intrinsic value on offense or defense?I know, it’s crazy, but the idea is that the Cardinals could add two players who would immediately make the running game a strength. Just look at what Brown and Massie provide as run blockers, and this should sure up the interior of the offensive line on passing downs.What interests me the most on these first two picks is they both played against elite competition, and they both won their one-on-one battles.They would give the Cardinals and Arians an exceptionally strong starting offensive line in the run game, which would open up the passing game for Drew Stanton, or whoever is the quarterback for the Cardinals next year.

Clayton, ” The health regulatory agency said it plans to introduce a draft guidance that recommends the proposed policy change next year. The N6 billion will however be distributed to the affected churches over the next 15 months based on the number of schools owned by each church group Addressing a large crowd of education stakeholders elders of the state and the general public on the occasion which held at the Women’s Development Centre in Awka the state capital Obi said the handover was necessitated by the level of moral decadence in society owing to what he described as the forceful takeover of mission schools by the government in 1970 “The collapse of education in Anambra State is directly connected with the takeover of schools owned by the missionaries churches and voluntary organisations in 1970 That singular exercise signalled the disappearance of morality and the building of character from our school system This can no longer be allowed” Obi stated He said that after consulting with stakeholders he had decided to return all primary and secondary schools taken from the missionaries back to them and expressed the hope that government’s gesture would be reciprocated by the churches so that the school system would be returned to its glorious days The N6 billion will be shared among the Catholic Anglican and remaining government schools in four instalments In the first instalment the Catholic Church which owns a lion’s share of 453 schools will receive over N762 million while its Anglican counterpart will receive over N498 million The remaining public schools not taken from the churches will share about N489 million out of a total of N175 billion The second and third instalments will gulp N125 billion each while the fourth and last instalment will cost the government N175 billion According to the governor who assured them that the money was already available and in the bank the money would be released to the churches after they must have submitted their work plans within 30 days The work plans are expected to contain curriculum that should embrace steps and strategies that will gradually recover the social sanity among pupils Such vices like cultism sexual immorality kidnapping armed robbery brazen roguery and such other malaises plaguing today’s societies especially in Anambra State are some of the vices that the returned schools will have to battle on how to exterminate them But the worry however remains on not only how the schools will achieve the feat but also what will happen to the moral value of schools not under the control of the missions But Obi believes that the moral re-armament can be triggered off by the mission schools in the state “Let us all resolve today to be positive change agents especially now that we have a government that is ready and willing to work with individuals that can complement the efforts of government for the good of society What we have done today may not be popular but it is the right decision and we will continue to take the right decisions” Obi maintained In his speech the Minister of State for Education Nyeso Wike praised the action of Obi describing it as capable of turning around education in the state and bringing back lost moral values just as he urged other states to emulate the Anambra example The secretary of Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) Dr Ahmed Modibo Mohammed who said he was a product of mission schools also praised Obi’s action and assured him of UBEC’s continued support and pointed out that states were free to use UBEC’s money any way they wanted and that the commission was bound to give support “The handover of schools by the Anambra State government is a step in the right direction and one that will boost education in the state” Mohamed said Responding on behalf of Catholic bishops the Archbishop of Onitsha metropolitan province Valerian Okeke in an emotion-laden voice assured Obi that his action of handing back schools to their owners was one of the most popular decisions ever taken in the state In his words “You have written your name in gold and you have wiped the tears of our people You have rectified the anomalies of the civil war and rectified the fault of past leaders With this action the church has forgiven them for forcefully taking our schools” In his speech on behalf of the Anglican Bishops the Archbishop of the Niger province and Bishop of Aguata Diocese Most Reverend Christian Efobi said the governor’s action showed that when the righteous mounted the throne the people rejoiced and assured him that they would continually pray for the governor The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Victor Umeh also hailed the handover of the schools to their previous owners and thanked the state legislature for supporting it He noted that it had been possible because APGA was the dominant party in the house thus giving the executive arm the needed cooperation Meanwhile the Anambra State government has set up a committee to look into the disputed schools whose handover has been delayed The committee will be chaired by a retired chief judge of the state Godwin OnonibaZ As knocks and criticisms continue to greet the appointment of First Lady Dame Patience Goodluck Jonathan as a Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa state the
