There are some detractors who seem to be living in a cocoon when it comes to the progress that Guyana has made over the last 17 years.
And, then when it has been pointed out that Guyana has progressed, these same detractors turned around and said that it was Desmond Hoyte that made it happen.
Before any monies can be allocated to social projects, the very first thing that needed to be done was for the Government to reduce the external debt of US$2100 million that was accrued under the Peoples National Congress (PNC) illegitimate rule to a more sustainable level. This meant for the years 1992 to 2002 there was very little economic and social progress that could be made.
Once this debt level was reduced then the Government could start repairing the dilapidated infrastructure that was the result of PNC illegitimate rule and mismanagement.
The fact that Guyana has progressed is in no doubt. Guyana is a more politically, socially and economically stable country now that the PNCR has not being trying to overtly destabilise the country so they can get back into power.
This brings me to a very interesting observation. That is, the Government should not give into the demands of the PNCR for inclusiveness in economic management.
At the very best (when the PNC was in Government) they failed Guyanese resulting in the economy collapsing. So, how come they are able to manage projects now? How are they able to now decide how Guyana should spend its tax dollars?
It is simple. They can’t!
With the recent indication that “President Jagdeo should heed the lesson of Honduras” by Robert Corbin (Leader of the Main Opposition Party), it is believed that Mr. Robert Corbin is reliving the past and is seeking the get into Government by the “backdoor” again.
Clearly, Mr. Robert Corbin is trying to refocus Guyanese attention from the internal politics of the PNCR. At the same time he has said that the young people are his focus.
Let’s see, how many young PNCR prominent members have been ousted because of disagreements with Mr Corbin? Raphael Trotman, Aubrey Norton, James MacAllister…..
