Speaker Nuquay Clarifies Story

No Comments

first_imgBy Abednego DaviesHouse Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay has reacted to a front-page story of the Daily Observer claiming that he has never called for the relaxation of the implementation of the Code of Conduct.This newspaper, in its Friday, June 2 edition, published a front-page story titled, “President, Speaker Want Code of Conduct Relaxed.”Nuquay did not challenge the actual content of the story, but referred to its headline as ‘sensational.’The newspaper story carried remarks made by the Speaker at the recent meeting of political parties and state actors at the Monrovia City Hall.In a release yesterday, Nuquay said, “We reject and condemn the newspaper’s story as it lacks any iota of truth,” adding, “At no time has Speaker Nuquay called for the relaxation of the implementation of the Code of Conduct.”The release quoted Speaker Nuquay as saying, “When a legal instrument is passed by the legislature, signed into law by the President, challenged by some citizens and interpreted by the Supreme Court as constitutional, it becomes a law of the land and it behooves all Liberians and those within our borders to respect it.”For the benefit of the public, the document said, “The Daily Observer reporter wrote on behalf of the legislature, which many have accused of inserting the controversial section 5 in the CoC to ban other government officials from contesting the elections.”Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay said every Liberian needs to be given the opportunity to participate in the electoral process and given the chance to be heard. “We want to commit ourselves as lawmakers to this process by ensuring that these elections are free, fair, peaceful and inclusive.”Speaker Nuquay said he pointed out that “Peace is indispensable to our democracy and peaceful elections are not new phenomenon in Liberia as there have been several elections since the return of our country to democratic governance. We want to commit ourselves as lawmakers to this process by ensuring that these elections are free, fair, peaceful and inclusive.”Meanwhile, Speaker Nuquay asked, “Why should a call for peaceful election amounts to relaxing the implementation of the Code of Conduct? Perhaps, the Daily Observer and its overzealous reporter misconstrued the meaning and the contextualization of the word ‘inclusive.’“Our Constitution guarantees the political participation of all Liberians,” he maintained.  “However, not all Liberians are eligible to vote; only those who have attained the age of 18. Not all Liberians run for representative, senatorial, presidential or vice presidential positions; only Liberians who meet certain age requirements can do so.“Similarly, the Speaker’s call for an inclusive election does not in any way amount to a call for the relaxation of the Code of Conduct,” he said.  “Speaker Nuquay believes in the rule of law and always stands on the side of the law,” the released noted.The Daily Observer welcomes the Speaker’s reaction.  While he did not use the word ‘relaxed’ with regard to the Code of Conduct, the context in which he spoke, including the heated debate among political parties over the controversial ‘Section 5’ of the CoC at the event, led us to the headline we chose. A question mark (?), which should have appeared at the end of the headline in question, was inadvertently, regrettably omitted.  The headline was intended to read thus: “President, Speaker Want Code of Conduct Relaxed?” To this question, the Speaker’s reaction has indicated a resounding “no.” Therefore, we consider the matter closed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – Speaker Nuquay last_img read more

Why You Don’t Have More Money

No Comments

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Most people believe they are money-motivated. They are not motivated by money; they just want more money. If you ask any of the 7.4 Billion human inhabitants on Earth, all of them would like to have more money, including the very wealthiest, regardless of how little it may change their lives.The earth is covered in money, but it isn’t evenly distributed. The Gross Domestic Product of Earth in 2017 is estimated by the World bank to be 80 trillion dollars. The total wealth of the earth is estimated to be something like 280 trillion dollars. And even though there are many things more important than money, money is still necessary.You can have as much as you are willing to earn, but you may not have as much as you want. If you don’t have the money you believe you want, there are a few primary reasons.Not Creating Value for OthersSome people believe others owe them money and are disappointed by the fact they aren’t providing it. There are others who think they cannot have more money because others already have it. However, this isn’t how money works. The acquisition of money is an other-oriented endeavor. You may be unaware that you are violating one of the primary laws of acquiring money: You must create value for others.If you are not willing to create value for others, money will elude you. The more value you create for others, the more you are likely to earn. There are a few prerequisites for creating value that includes education (knowledge) and competency (skills). Platitudes like “readers are leaders” and “earners are learners” may be hokey, but these aphorisms contain a truth worth acknowledging.Little value, little money. Greater value, greater money. Make yourself more valuable to others and start serving them.Not Enough Value for Enough PeoplePeople who make more money create more value for more people. The value they create scales. The more people who benefit from the value you create, the more valuable you become. For most people, scaling the value they create means taking on greater responsibility for outcomes that positively impact more people.This is why entrepreneurship is so attractive to those who want more money, even though the best of them also want to make a positive impact on other people’s lives (and the worst of them want to flip a business as quickly as possible or grow at the expense of other people).The fewer people who benefit from what you do, the less you earn. If you want more money, you have to create more value for more people.How to be Money MotivatedHere is how you can tell if someone is money motivated. Look to see if they are doing the work to make themselves into something more than they are now, someone who can create more value. Observe what they do and see if they are trying to create value for other people. Notice their work habits and their willingness to do more. If these things are absent, then the individual only wants more money, and they aren’t yet motivated.The order in which things tend to come is that you must be more and do more to have more. Once you have more, you can contribute more to the causes you care about, which is one of the very best motivations for seeking money, and something that will give you greater satisfaction than a fancy car or a big house.last_img read more
