first_imgMumbai: In a clear indication of lack of support from the lenders on further funding, Jet Airways chief executive Vinay Dube has said it is painful that there is no commitment on the part of the all stakeholders on paying salaries to the employees which are due in a few days. The now grounded airline has not paid March salaries to its over 20,000 employees. Jet ceased operations on April 17. April salary is due in a few days. The airline suspended operations after the SBI-led consortium of lenders rejected its demand for a Rs 983-crore lifeline to help carry out operations and pay to the employees their March salaries.

Significantly, on Friday the employees had planned to take out a peace walk towards the venue of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s election rally in the BKC are here, but was cancelled at the last minute on request from the police and the state government.

He also said though there have been many board meeting, the promoters and strategic shareholder (Etihad) there was no favourable outcome on funding and paying salaries so far. “We have also approached government at the highest levels seeking intervention and assistance but that too has not yielded any positive results,” he added. Dube also said in the past few days the leadership team is trying to convince the lenders to release some funds to the employees, while continuing to support the bank led bid sale process. “We have told them repeatedly that our employees are facing grave hardships owing to non-payment of salaries and that if this were to continue any longer, our employees will have no option but to find employment elsewhere. “Unfortunately, the banks have said they are unable to make any salary commitments, until after the bidding process is complete,” he said.last_img read more

“The parties are determined to bridge their differences and have been working on concrete proposals on the key elements regarding security arrangements and a government of national unity to bring peace to the country,” said a press statement released by the Mission today.The statement noted that those two important issues would form part of a larger agreement on several other important matters, and that the dialogue was conducted in “a spirit of transparency and openness” focused on the greater cause of ending conflict and restoring stability to Libya.“As UNSMIL and the key Libyan stakeholders reiterated on a number of occasions, there is agreement that nothing is agreed on until everything is agreed on,” said UNSMIL’s statement. “No decision will be taken without the support of the Libyan people after wide consultations among the participants and the key stakeholders.”The statement addressed reports circulating on some social media platforms about elements of the discussions regarding the Government of national unity and the security arrangements. It said the specific elements reflected in those reports were partial, preliminary drafts. Other elements, such as relations with the legislature and other State institutions remain matters for discussion.“They are first drafts. Already these drafts are being elaborated to reflect new discussions,” said the statement. “As in any other discussions, proposals are made and are amended and changed with the consensus of the participants.”The drafts were produced after lengthy consultations with the parties conducted by the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya, Bernardino Leon, in the past weeks during his frequent visits to Libya and meetings with the key stakeholders.Participants in the discussions noted the constructive nature of the discussions and the spirit of full engagement in which they took place. Proposals were built on and amended, with language improved and new elements proposed where necessary.The Mission, which stressed that its role is only to facilitate reaching a peaceful solution to end the bloodshed called, along with the participants in the dialogue, for everyone to protect the process and prevent it from being undermined.“The discussions are at a delicate phase and require certain conditions to be successful and to be understandable,” the statement read. read more

OSU redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker (24) returns his second interception of the day during the second half of Buckeyes’ season opener on Sept. 3 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes won 77-10. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorListed as a starting safety for Ohio State on Saturday and donning a scarlet No. 24 jersey, redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker made his first impression in front of a crowd of 107,193 in Ohio Stadium.OSU coach Urban Meyer called him a “freakish” athlete, which showed on Saturday, midway through the first half.Hooker sprinted over to the opposing team’s sideline with redshirt freshman Damon Arnette defending Bowling Green senior wide receiver Ronnie Moore. Hooker jumped off of one foot, tipped the ball with his right hand and came down with the interception — which was one of the highlights of the first weekend of college football.Hooker displayed his “ball hawk” mentality again when he snatched his second interception of the day.But Hooker’s path to the centerfold of Meyer’s secondary was an unorthodox one filled with adversity, and he has his mom to thank for that.Hooker was a basketball star at New Castle High School in Pennsylvania where he was named to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Fabulous Five basketball team in 2012-2013. Hooker’s team was 54-2 combined in his sophomore and junior seasons in high school.He was a rising high school prospect sought by Division I schools, but when he entered his junior year, he returned to the game of football — one he had not played since suffering a shoulder injury in seventh grade.Hooker’s talent on the hardwood translated almost immediately to the gridiron as he was rated as a four-star prospect and the No. 26 athlete overall by 247Sports. Meyer said when he was recruiting him, Hooker scored 35 points in a basketball game his junior season.When Hooker arrived on campus in 2014, he had to take a redshirt and sit out a year. At the time, it wasn’t a situation Hooker was familiar with.“There were a couple times where I thought this wasn’t for me.” Hooker said. “I just started doubting myself because I felt like I didn’t fit in.”Hooker said he had several talks with his mom, Angela Dennis, while he was going through his redshirt season.“I don’t know what you’re going to do, but you’re not coming home,” Hooker said Dennis told him.Although Hooker said he was just blowing smoke at the time, in hindsight, he’s thankful for his mother’s advice.“My mom, she’s like my everything. Growing up, that’s all I had,” he said. “I learned a lot from my mom. Being a single parent, she taught me that no matter what you’re going through, just fight through what you’re doing, because there is going to be adversity.”Meyer estimates that between 95 and 99 percent of freshmen in college football experience what Hooker went through when redshirting. He said that Dennis is someone he should thank for encouraging Hooker to stay with the Buckeyes.Now, Meyer is reaping the rewards.Hooker said he gained his confidence when he saw results in the weight room. He said he began to see his body transform into the role he was expected to fill. He said he studied more film, learned the playbook and earned the trust of his teammates and his coaching staff.Hooker’s performance against the Falcons might have been the peak of a grind that started with doubt and culminated with his first two interceptions for the Scarlet and Gray.“I feel like my redshirt year definitely helped me fit into the environment more,” he said. “It definitely helped me bulk my body up and play out there with the Big Ten conference.”Hooker believes that a redshirt year can be taken one of two ways. The player can take it and get frustrated, or he can put the work into fine-tuning his game and benefit from a full year of development.Hooker will be asked to do more on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at the ‘Shoe against a prolific passing team in Tulsa. However, Meyer believes in Hooker’s basketball and athletic background to lead the OSU defense.“He can do whatever he trains to do. He’s talented. He’s fast. He has great ball skills,” Meyer said following the team’s 77-10 victory over Bowling Green. “His commitment to our program now is over the top.” read more

A spokeswoman for S4C is reported to have said the allegation is “completely untrue.”The investigation relates to alleged inappropriate filming of children at a swimming pool in Northwood, Greater London, in July.Atherton was interviewed by police under caution earlier this week and was not arrested. Police inquiries into the alleged incident were continuing.A Met spokesman said: “Police in Hillingdon have received an allegation of alleged inappropriate filming of children at a swimming pool in Pines Close, Northwood, by an individual in July2015.“One man aged in his fifties was interviewed under caution in relation to this matter on the 7th of November. No arrests have been made. Inquiries continue.”Atherton qualified as a social worker in 1988. Before joining S4C, he worked in a variety of roles, including as a team manager in fostering and adoption for Reading borough council.last_img read more

first_imgJust yesterday, Asus sent out invitations to an October event where it’s going to show off the successor to the Padfone. Now, a freshly-leaked photo appears to have prematurely laid bare the hardware details of the Padfone 2.Not much was revealed by the invite itself, but someone, somewhere has snapped a photo which appears to be the back of the Padfone 2’s retail packaging. According to what’s printed, the details spotted on AnTuTu were indeed accurate: a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.5GHz is running the show. It’s also paired with 2GB of RAM (again, as benchmarked).The Padfone 2 will be larger than the original, too. Asus has opted to go with a 4.7-inch Super IPS+ display (or is it SuperAMOLED, as the icon indicates?) this time around, and more than the diagonal measurement has changed. The new panel has a native resolution of 1280 x 720, compared to 960 x 540 on the previous Padfone. And in addition to supporting GSM, CDMA, and HSPA+, the Padfone 2 is also packing an LTE radio. With a quad-core chip, LTE, and a larger, higher-resolution display on board you’d hope Asus would increase battery capacity — and it has, by more than 600mAh (to 2140mAh total).And what about the front and rear-facing cameras? They’ve been upgraded from VGA and 8MP respectively to 1.2MP and 13MP. Low-power Bluetooth 4.0 has been added, and there’s an MHL output for those times when you want to go really big. Presumably there’s a 10-ish inch tablet dock coming for the Padfone 2, but it’s nice to know that it’s equipped for home theater duties, too.Printing inconsistency aside, this purported Padfone 2 retail box reveals a tasty set of specs to go along with those earlier benchmarks. Now let’s see what Asus has planned in terms of pricing and availability.More at Engadgetlast_img read more

Image: Google Maps Jun 17th 2017, 4:10 PM Image: Google Maps Saturday 17 Jun 2017, 4:10 PM A “FEUD” BETWEEN two farmers over “a small dirt track” linking their farms, led to one man shooting the other and killing his dog, a court heard today.Ted O’Donoghue, (72), of Killmoreen, Kildimo, Limerick, appeared before a special sitting of Limerick District Court, charged with assault causing harm to John Hayes, (65), at farmlands at Ballycasey, Kildimo, on Friday.Despite strenuous garda objections to bail, Judge Marie Keane, remanded O’Donoghue in custody with consent to bail on a number of “very strict conditions”.During the bail hearing, Garda Jason Mitchell, Newcastle West garda station, said the accused “allegedly fired a shot” from a single barrel shotgun at Mr Hayes, “wounding him in the right shoulder”.He told judge Keane the “serious incident” was linked to a “dispute over a “right of way’”.Garda Mitchell alleged gardaí had been called to lands at Ballycasey on “five occasions since June 2014”, and that the shooting last Friday, was the “latest in an ongoing long running feud over a ‘right of way’”.“Further more serious charges are anticipated,” Gda Mitchell added.The court heard the ‘right of way’ is on O’Donoghue’s land, but three other landowners, including the injured party have to access it to get to their lands.“There is no other access,” Gda Mitchell said.Objecting to bail under Section 2 of the Bail Act, and under O’Callaghan Rules, gardaí said they feared O’Donoghue would interfere with witnesses.Inspector Alan Cullen, Newcastle West garda station, said the matter “should never” have come before a criminal court, and that “it’s an unfortunate scenario”.He alleged the dispute should have been “resolved” but has now “escalated”.‘Flare up’William O’Donoghue, the accused’s brother, alleged the dispute had been ongoing “for seven or eight years”.He told the court tensions would “flare up” from time to time.William O’Donoghue gave an undertaking in court, to act as surety for his brother, and to monitor his movements whilst on bail, including chaperoning him to Mass services outside the locality.He also agreed to manage the day to day running of the family farm at Ballycasey, where his brother allegedly shot and injured father of four John Hayes, and killed Hayes’s dog Lassie.Gardaí told the court a conviction, on indictment, for Section 3 assault carried a maximum five-year prison sentence.“The injured party has stated (to gardaí) that the accused fired a shot at him, injuring him, and killing his dog,” Gda Mitchell alleged.The court heard gardai had recovered a gun believed to have been used in last Friday’s shooting.Garda Mitchell said he arrested O’Donoghue, at 1.10pm on Friday, at Barnakyle, Patrickswell. He said the accused “made no reply” when charged.Remanding  O’Donoghue on bail, judge Keane ordered that €3,000 of an independent cash surety of €5,000 be lodged.She warned Mr O’Donoghue: “If you breach any of these bail conditions you will be arrested and incarcerated.”Granting bail, the judge noted it was a “very busy time of the year” for farmers cutting silage.The accused agreed to strict bail conditions, including that he stay away from his farmland at Ballycasey.He also agreed to hand over management of the farm to his brother William; to sign on daily at Newcastle West garda station; obey a curfew and be available to gardaí at all times,He also agreed not to contact Hayes nor any other witnesses nor adjoining landowners at Ballycasey.“If you see your neighbours, you blank them; you don’t even look at them,” the judge told the accused.Judge Keane described the matter as “very serious”.She remanded O’Donoghue to appear before Limerick District Court on 21 June.Read: Met police say 58 presumed dead in Grenfell tower fire >Read: ‘Social cleansing is happening in Dublin.

first_imgClimat : le dernière décennie fut la plus chaude des annalesMonde – D’après l’agence spatiale américaine, la planète vient de connaître la décennie la plus chaude des annales, qui remontent à la fin du 19e siècle.L’Institut d’étude spatiale Goddard de la Nasa (Giss) a publié ses chiffres pour l’année 2009, révélant que cette dernière a été la deuxième année la plus chaude des 130 années dont les températures ont été enregistrées. Elle se place juste derrière 2005, et presque ex aequo avec 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 et 2007, l’année 2008 ayant été la plus froide de la décennie en raison de la force du courant marin La Niña.À lire aussiLe réchauffement climatique ferait rétrécir les animaux”Il y a des variations importantes des températures terrestres d’une année sur l’autre, provoquées par l’influence alternée des courants de l’océan Pacifique El Niño (chaud) et La Niña (froid)” explique James Hansen, le directeur du Giss. “Mais quand on fait la moyenne des températures sur cinq ou dix ans pour lisser ces fluctuations annuelles du thermomètre, on peut voir que le réchauffement planétaire se poursuit sans relâche” souligne-t-il.Depuis 1880, une nette tendance au réchauffement est constatée à la surface du globe, les températures ayant grimpé d’environ 0,2 degré Celsius par décennie au cours des trente dernières années, grimpant au total de 0,8 degré depuis 1880.Pour dresser ce bilan, le Giss s’est basé sur des données fournies par plus d’un millier de stations météorologiques situées tout autour de la Terre, des mesures de températures à la surface des océans effectuées par des satellites ainsi que des données venant des stations de recherche dans l’Antarctique.Le 22 janvier 2010 à 17:41 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Ainsi, le Professeur Philippe Caron explique : “Au cours de la grossesse, il existe une augmentation des besoins en iode et de l’activité de la glande thyroïde maternelle. La carence en iode entraîne un goitre maternel et une fabrication insuffisante d’hormones.

first_imgDécouverte d’un gigantesque trou noir, le plus gros jamais trouvé ?Des astronomes pensent avoir découvert le deuxième voire le premier plus gros trou noir jamais observé. Ce colosse possèderait une masse équivalente à 17 milliards de fois celle de notre Soleil et se trouverait dans une petite galaxie à environ 250 millions d’années-lumière de nous.C’est au cœur d’une lointaine galaxie que des astronomes pensent avoir découvert le plus gros trou noir jamais observé. Ce monstre est situé à quelque 250 millions d’années-lumière de la Terre, dans une galaxie dix fois plus petite que la Voie Lactée et baptisée NGC 1277. Or, la gueule de ce trou noir serait, d’après les mesures, 11 fois plus large que l’orbite de la planète Neptune autour du Soleil. Plus impressionnante encore, celui-ci posséderait une masse équivalant à 17 milliards de fois celle de notre Soleil.Il serait ainsi tellement énorme qu’il représenterait 14% de la masse totale de sa galaxie, contre seulement 0,1% habituellement. Une masse tellement gigantesque et si loin de la “normale” que les scientifiques ont pris une année pour vérifier leurs résultats et soumettre leur étude à la publication. “La première fois que j’ai calculé cela, j’ai pensé que j’avais dû faire une erreur quelque part. Nous avons essayé à nouveau avec les mêmes instruments, puis avec un instrument différent”, a expliqué à Space.com Remco van den Bosch, astronome de l’Institut Max Planck pour l’Astronomie en Allemagne. Mais les chercheurs sont arrivés aux mêmes résultats. “C’est vraiment une galaxie insolite”, a indiqué de son côté Karl Gebhardt, de l’Université du Texas à Austin. “C’est presque entièrement un trou noir. Elle pourrait constituer le premier objet d’une nouvelle classe, les trous noirs galactiques”, ajoute le chercheur, co-auteur de l’étude publiée dans Nature. Une nouvelle théorie sur la formation des galaxies ? Selon eux, la découverte pourrait bien obliger les spécialistes à réviser leurs théories sur la formation des galaxies. En effet, la taille disproportionnée du trou noir par rapport à sa galaxie hôte NGC 1277 pourrait être révélateur d’un mécanisme de formation cosmique jusque là ignoré. Une possibilité que les chercheurs comptent bien explorer en étudiant le trou noir découvert ainsi que d’autres.Ceci permettra également peut-être de déterminer la place du trou noir de NGC 1277 dans le classement des plus gros trous noirs. Selon l’étude, il pourrait ainsi être bien plus massif que son plus grand concurrent connu, dont la taille est estimée mais non confirmée entre 6 et 37 milliards de fois la masse du Soleil. Ce dernier représenterait environ 59% de la masse centrale de sa galaxie hôte.À lire aussiDes chercheurs auraient découvert l’origine de la mystérieuse lumière verte observée par la NASA Néanmoins, l’équipe de Van den Bosch a expliqué qu’il avait également identifié cinq autres galaxies à proximité de NGC 1277 qui lui étaient semblables et pouvaient aussi abriter des trous noirs gigantesques. “Vous espérez toujours trouver un spécimen [d’un phénomène] mais maintenant, nous en avons six comme ça. Nous ne les espérions pas car nous nous attendons à ce que les trous noirs et les galaxies s’influencent mutuellement”, a commenté Van den Bosch.(Crédits photos : NASA / ESA)Le 29 novembre 2012 à 18:31 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

That’s what Kelly Punteney did.As a Vancouver city staffer, Punteney spent years envisioning and building a connected system of local trails; he left the city in 2007 but he’s still working on behalf of public parks as a newly appointed Washington State Parks and Recreation commissioner. That’s a volunteer position, by the way.Here’s another volunteer gig: Punteney is acting as resident caretaker for a historic — but overgrown and undernourished — six-acre site on the Vancouver waterfront that was bequeathed to Clark College as an arboretum and environmental classroom. This year he moved into a drafty house on the land and started fighting back weeds and deterioration on his own dime.It’s not like Punteney, 63, needs the burden. A landscape architect, he holds down a day job with Colf Construction as a project manager. He just finished renovating a classic home on East Reserve Street, where he still plans to live one day — for now he’s leased it out. He means to spend the next three to five years devoting himself to saving the building and grounds of the oldest private home in Clark County. He aims to convince the city of Vancouver to adopt the property, open it to the public and link it to the growing waterfront trail he helped create. Cheering him on is Clark College Foundation President Lisa Gibert, who said the college is dedicated to minimally maintaining the property, but can’t do more than that. The days of trying to use the place as an environmental classroom are over, she said.“We have utilized every strategy we could think of to make this work,” Gibert said. “We don’t have the capacity to do this.”last_img read more

The most-retweeted celebrity tweet from this year’s Oscars was from Porter, star of FX’s “Pose,” showing off his billowing black dress:center_img On Twitter, the most-tweeted moments were similar: “Green Book” took the No. 1 spot, followed by “Shallow” winning original song, Malek’s win, Gaga-Cooper’s performance, and Olivia Colman snagging the best actress trophy for “The Favourite.”Lady Gaga was the most tweeted-about celebrity of the night, followed by Bradley Cooper, Rami Malek, Alfonso Cuarón and Spike Lee. Gaga’s star shone brightly as ABC’s Oscars broadcast went hostless, after Kevin Hart’s controversial exit.Spike Lee, whose “BlacKkKlansman” won the Oscar for adapted screenplay, generated the most controversy of the night after he angrily tried to leave the auditorium after “Green Book” picked up the best-picture Oscar and delivering an acceptance speech that drew a Monday-morning response on Twitter from Donald Trump.Celebs tweeting huzzahs to Lady Gaga for her Oscars win and performance with Cooper included “Shallow” co-writer Mark Ronson: Lady Gaga struck the biggest chord with Oscars viewers Sunday night, capturing the lion’s share of chatter related to the 91st Academy Awards on social media.Gaga’s first Oscar win — for the song “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born,” which she performed with Bradley Cooper on the ABC telecast — gave her three of the evening’s five top moments on Facebook and made her the most-tweeted-about celeb, according to the companies.Per Facebook, the five most talked-about Oscar moments on Feb. 24 were: “Green Book” winning best picture, followed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s intimate performance of “Shallow.” Next was Rami Malek’s best-actor win for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” followed by Gaga’s acceptance speech for “Shallow” and Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” winning foreign language film. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

first_imgIt’s only in a work of art can you expect life being breathed into the dying. Shovan Gandhi, a Delhi based photographer, in his work Alang has done just the same.  Being a part of the bigger picture – Pix – a photo quarterly, Gandhi has portrayed Habitat through this endeavor along with fifteen other artists. Alang is a journey of ships, starting from the day they are born to the waves they crash and land to their graveyard and even beyond. It tries to encapsulate the experiences the ships go through throughout their life and finally end up in this ship breaking centre in Gujarat. He compares, not the life of a ship to that of a man, but vice-versa. One cannot ignore the idea glaring through his pictures that each man-made thing has to come to an end. Once worn out, nothing can keep the drums rolling, or here, the ships sailing. Though ‘philosophical’, it asks the question of death and birth; of waste from value and conversely.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Alang also portrays the journey, its end and a new beginning. The lines by T. S. Eliot, ‘What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from,’ fits Alang beautifully. It shows not only how the once mighty ships sailing the economies of the world come to rest in peace, but also how their end marks a new beginning for scrap collectors. For truly, there never is an end.  The project has attracted various view points from various fields of ecology, architecture and finance. Not being faced with a criticism yet, Shovan has tried to highlight the prevailing socio-cultural ecosystem in which, according to him, ‘unimportant men can aggregate and die so that dead ships live.’ Drawing influence from architecture and fine art, Gandhi wishes there would be more platforms in the country for display of photographs and art. He expects to present a new project in the following year.WHERE: Goethe-Institute, Maxmuller Bhawan, New DelhiWHEN: When: 9 to 16 May, 7:00 pm to 9:30 pmlast_img read more

first_imgIt’s Not Just in the Eye of the Beholder Home Values 2016-10-20 Seth Welborn October 20, 2016 506 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Newscenter_img By Ryan SchuetteU.S. home values leapt up by 5.5 percent since last September, reflecting the fastest rise in appreciation for more than two years, according to Zillow.The Seattle-based real-estate company disclosed the findings in a September Real Estate Market Report it released on Thursday.Zillow found a median home value of $189,400.According to the report, there were 6 percent fewer homes up for grabs than there were a year ago. This comes as a result of steady declines in housing inventory and increased demand in the housing market.Boston and Indianapolis saw the most significant declines in the number of homes for sale over the past year, down 26 percent and 25 percent, respectively.”Increasingly strong demand has been contributing to dwindling inventory stocks across the nation,” Dr. Svenja Gudell, chief economist for Zillow, said in a statement. “Healthy demand for for-sale homes amidst low inventory has been driving the market.”This is “another sign that the housing market is recovering nicely,” Gudell added.By comparison, rents crept ahead by 1.5 percent over the past year, reaching a Zillow Rent Index of $1,403.The highest year-over-year rent appreciations took place in cities like Seattle, Portland, and Sacramento, for which Zillow reported year-over-year changes of 9.3 percent, 7 percent, and 5.8 percent.According to Zillow, bidding wars are also on the rise as homebuyers scramble to lock down competitive home purchases.“Buyers in the nation’s fastest moving markets can expect the search process to last a few months, as market conditions are often extremely competitive with homes selling for above asking price and receiving multiple offers,” Gudell said. “It’s definitely a seller’s market right now, with some homes being more expensive than ever.” Sharelast_img read more

government came into office on the back of a three-pronged agenda – ensuring security two rebuilding the economy and third vigorously prosecuting the fight against corruption “This last issue corruption has been an existential issue for Nigeria threatening the very fundament of our existence It has ensured that for too long the resources meant for the majority have been cornered by a greedy minority” he said “This issue of corruption underlines every aspect of our national life from our security situation to the state of our economy It was the reason why in spite of record oil revenues between 2011 and 2013/14 we saw no savings and very little investment in infrastructure and jobs and in spite of the billions of dollars reportedly invested in security the Boko Haram insurgency and other cases of insecurity did not abate “Our government has adopted a two-step approach to dealing with this scourge of systemic corruption The first is to stop grand corruption and the accompanying impunity The second step and the more enduring one is what this week is about creating a self- sustaining system that assures transparency and accountability “We have since we assumed office three years ago made remarkable progress in pushing the frontiers of transparency and accountability in the Federal Government One of the first things that the President did when we took office was to establish the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) to coordinate our reform efforts in this regard “We inherited a Treasury Single Account (TSA) system that existed mainly as an idea without any committed implementation Since the Presidential Order by President Buhari in August 2015 we have made remarkable progress in expanding the reach of the TSA so that today we are almost at 100 percent compliance “In addition to joining the OGP and developing a National Action Plan in 2016 the Federal Government also established a Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit (PICA) housed in the Federal Ministry of Finance to clean up the Federal payroll and pensions systems across all our Ministries Departments and Agencies “PICA’s work in this regard has helped the Federal Government save more than N200 Billion by eliminating ghost workers Like the TSA we are also aggressively expanding the rollout of the Government Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) to ensure that the loopholes that enable payroll fraud are permanently blocked PICA also oversees the Whistleblowing Programme we launched in December 2016 “That Programme had seen
