A fortunate break for Guyana
I believe that all of Guyanese should be very grateful to Former Minister of Labour, Mr. Manzoor Nadir, for writing to CARICOM on remarks made by the former Minister of Finance of Guyana, Mr. Carl Greenidge on Guyana. Since his return he has been exposing the unethical dealings of the PPP/C government. At every session, Mr. Greenidge has been unmasking the dishonesty of the government.
Replying to critics of his action to write CARICOM in a Guyana Chronicle report of January 6, 2011, Mr. Nadir said: “On the issue of my letter to the CARICOM Secretary General, I said that: “The Government of Guyana places on record our total lack of confidence in Mr. Greenidge’s ability to represent it. We are urging you not to have Mr. Greenidge be involved in any negotiations that would impact on Guyana or in any negotiations on behalf of Guyana.
“This country and its government have a right to say who it wants to represent them, or who can and cannot represent them. I draw some parallels with our country’s stand on the EPAs and the Regional Negotiating Machinery. There we said that we had an issue on how our interests were represented. Changes were made.
“Greenidge contends that Guyana has found itself in a nightmare. He should have done the professional thing and resigned from representing the Government of Guyana.”
I would like to sincerely thank Mr. Nadir for expressing those thoughts, Mr. Greenidge’s contract was not renewed and he is back in Guyana parliament representing the people of Guyana with wisdom and strength.
