Enmore is changing
It was as recent as last Wednesday, June 20, that a writer in the letter column of Kaieteur News declared that the PPP is relying on an outmoded and inefficient field mechanism to keep its supporters within the flock.
Today’s (June 21) Kaieteur News (page 2) carries a release that AFC “has opened a Sub-Office at Enmore”.
I did some investigations and I learnt that the AFC meeting which launched the Sub-Office was attended by about 150 persons.
I called some people in the PPP structure in Enmore to enquire if they were aware of the AFC meeting and they told me that they were not given any such information.
Enmore has always been a bedrock for the PPP. It no longer is, because the people have been isolated by the little gods who have to do the groundwork.
By their negligence they have created fertile soil for the AFC. The seeds of the AFC support have germinated. The plants will multiply. With the kind of ignorance displayed by the local leaders I spoke to, it is only a matter of time before Enmore becomes a stronghold of the AFC.
The small turnout to Enmore Martyrs Day observance and to meetings held by Government Ministers should be cause for the PPP to worry. Their local leaders should be replaced.
