Mr. Flomo reads the press statement categorically condemning the alleged email sent to Cllr. Jerome KorkoyaThe National Elections Commission (NEC), through its director of communications, Mr. S. Henry Flomo has sharply reacted to an email said to have come from one of its staffers, regarding the voter roll which is aimed at bringing NEC into public disrepute.Addressing the media at an unusual and impromptu press conference yesterday, Mr. Flomo said the alleged email was illegally generated and has been circulated to harm the reputation and credibility of the electoral process.“The Commission clarifies that the alleged email was never written nor circulated by the Chairman of the Commission, Cllr. Jerome George Korkoya and the contents therein are false and only designed to cause confusion in the country,” he said. The alleged email, a copy of which is in the possession of the Daily Observer, has ‘email@example.com’ as its source while the recipient is Jerome Korkoya (firstname.lastname@example.org).It is said to have been sent to Korkoya on Wednesday, July 28, 2017, at 9:19 p.m., with the subject, “Unknown Database Changes”.The alleged email reads:“Good morning, chairman, I hope all is well with you. Last night while backing up the system database and folders, I noticed that there are changes and additions being made to the parent folder of the final voter roster. The most significant changes of concern to me is the creation of new voters file with same exact name as the previous, and the addition of numbers that were not included on the listing we all signed on a few weeks ago. “Most interestingly, the new folder being created mimics some of the same information in the initial parent folder listing. Going through the new folder, the names, ages, location, sex and location of voters have changed. Furthermore, the pictures of voters on the new listing do not match what is on the compiled final file of those that registered to vote. I am looking through this more and will provide you with additional information.” A subsequent email, which was later alleged to have come from Cllr. Korkoya, was dated Thursday, November 9, 2017, at 9:33 a.m. and addressed to all members of the Board of Commissioners. The alleged email concluded and admonished all of its recipients not to speak to the media or anyone concerning fingerprint inaccuracy.“I have not seen this from any of the complainants as part of their evidence and we need to make no mention of that. We will discuss this in our emergency meeting later today,” it read. Flomo said the email is false because the senders used email@example.com which does not exist on the Commission’s server.“For all official mails, internal and external, the NEC uses the first letter of first names and then the last names plus the domain address. Therefore, the sender is fake,” he stated.He added that the voter roll database is strictly controlled by the NEC Data Center and not the IT section at the NEC.“The IT section does not control infrastructure, is not able to comment on database changes as mentioned in the concocted email and the NEC uses Microsoft Outlook for all official mails, internal and external,” he explained.He pointed out that the NEC does not have fingerprint folders as mentioned by the alleged fake emails and that all documents are saved in the Commission’s database and not in folders.“The fake email from Chairman Korkoya to fellow commissioners, regarding the subject, does not exist on our mail server. It is not just strange but fake and in fact, the Chairman in particular normally uses his AOL account for email purposes,” he said.Flomo noted that the Commission is urging all citizens, mainly voters and partners to remain calm and await the opinion of the Supreme Court and that the Commission remains transparent and credible. The head of the IT section at the NEC, Mr. James Dogbey also noted that his department knows nothing about that email and it has been verified as a fake email from an unidentified source with the intent to damage the good reputation of the Commission.Meanwhile, Rodney Sieh, publisher of Frontpage Africa, who received the purported email and published it on his newspaper’s website said he called on the NEC to give a quick response, but the Commission said it could give a response only through a press conference as it did yesterday. Responding on the Bumper Show yesterday as to how he got the alleged email and whether it is authentic, Sieh said he received it from an insider from the NEC and whether it is true or not lies in the hands of the Commission to clarify.With a few more days to the ruling of the Supreme Court in the LP, UP vs NEC’s ongoing October 10 representative and presidential elections alleged irregularities and fraud case, the alleged email appears to be generating more tension and bringing the electoral body under further scrutiny.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Yellen signals that job market will need Fed’s continued low-rate policies ‘for some time’ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Mar 31, 2014 7:57 am MDT Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen speaks to community development professionals in Chicago at the National Interagency Community Reinvestment Conference in Chicago, Monday, March, 31, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Beaty) WASHINGTON – Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen made clear Monday that she thinks the still-subpar U.S. job market will continue to need the help of low interest rates “for some time.”Yellen’s remarks signalled that even after the Fed phases out its monthly bond purchases later this year, it has no plans to raise a key short-term rate anytime soon. The bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term loan rates low.Her remarks sent a reassuring message to investors, many of whom had grown anxious that the Fed might raise short-term rates by mid-2015. Their concerns were stirred two weeks ago, when Yellen suggested that the Fed could start raising short-term rates six months after it halts its bond purchases, which most economists expect by year’s end.A short-term rate increase would elevate borrowing costs and could hurt stock prices.But on Monday, Yellen indicated that the Fed still thinks rates should remain low to stimulate borrowing, spending and economic growth.“I think this extraordinary commitment is still needed and will be for some time, and I believe that view is widely held by my fellow policymakers at the Fed,” Yellen said in her first major speech since taking over the Fed’s leadership in February.Stocks, which had been up before Yellen began speaking, rose further on her remarks. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up about 134 points. Low rates tend to lead some investors to shift money into stocks and thereby raise stock prices.Speaking to a national conference on community reinvestment in Chicago, Yellen described the U.S. job market as less than healthy despite steady improvement since the recession ended nearly five years ago. She said the difficulty many people are still having finding full-time work shows that low rates are still needed to encourage borrowing and spending.Economists said they viewed Yellen’s comments as a message that even though the Fed is trimming its bond purchases, it’s nowhere near moving to raise its benchmark short-term rate, which has been at a record low near zero since December 2008.“Chair Yellen pulled out just about every dovish tool in the box as she highlighted that the economy needs extraordinary support for some time,” said Bricklin Dwyer, an economist at BNP Paribas. Dwyer said he thinks the Fed’s first rate hike will come in early 2016.In an unusual touch for a speech by a Fed chief, Yellen described the personal stories of three people who had lost their jobs during the recession and struggled to find work.“They are a reminder that there are real people behind the statistics,” Yellen said. She noted the struggles of a medical claims processor, a printing plant worker and a construction worker who lost their jobs during the Great Recession.“The past six years have been difficult for many Americans, but the hardships faced by some have shattered lives and families,” she said. “Too many people know firsthand how devastating it is to lose a job at which you had succeeded and be unable to find another; to run through your savings and even lose your home.”Yellen said that while the unemployment rate has fallen from a peak of 10 per cent in October 2009 to 6.7 per cent in February, by many measures the job market remains weak. She said she and her Fed colleagues think an unemployment rate between 5.2 per cent and 5.6 per cent would be “consistent with maximum sustainable employment.”As she did at her first news conference two weeks ago, Yellen said she monitors measures beyond the unemployment rate in assessing the job market. These include the percentage of unemployed workers who have been out of work for more than six months and a gauge of people without jobs who have stopped looking for one or who have had to take a part-time job even though they would like full-time work.“The recovery still feels like a recession to many Americans, and it also looks that way in some economics statistics,” Yellen said. “In some ways, the job market is tougher now than in any recession.”Yellen’s remarks came at a national conference on community development sponsored by the Fed and other banking regulators and the Treasury Department. Afterward, she toured a manufacturing lab at Daley College to observe a program to train students for high-tech manufacturing jobs.Yellen presided over her first Fed interest-rate meeting on March 18 and 19. At that meeting, the Fed approved a third $10 billion cut in its monthly bond purchases to $55 billion. It’s used the bond purchases to try to keep long-term rates low.The Fed also dropped language from its statement that had said rates would likely remain low “well past” the time unemployment fell below 6.5 per cent. Instead, it said it would review “a wide range of information” before starting to raise rates. It said it planned to keep short-term rates low for a “considerable time” after it stops buying bonds.Asked at her news conference to define a “considerable time,” Yellen said it “probably means something on the order of six months.”That comment rattled investors, who feared it could mean the Fed would start raising rates in the first half of 2015, earlier than many had expected.Yellen’s comments on Monday about the Fed’s commitment to low rates could help convince investors that the first Fed rate increase will more likely come later.
