Evidently President Jagdeo takes pride in what he calls “cussing out” the media and has escalated his tirade as an election campaign strategy which suggests this nation is exposed to a man who not only treats the office he holds with contempt, disrespects the people who pay him and whom he should be serving, but may also have serious behavioral issues, which singularly or collectively is/are injurious to this nation.
While the President has lost his moral compass, the sense of propriety and decorum, as a people our survival, peaceful co-existence and development are hinged on us not joining him and those of like mind.
The PPP’s presidential candidate Donald Ramotar assured this nation, that if elected, he will continue President Jagdeo’s policies and is currently a presidential adviser. This nation is chartering very dangerous waters and Ramotar needs to come out and say if he supports Jagdeo’s debased behaviour. If he does not, then he needs to join us in putting an end to this forthwith by telling Jagdeo to desist from same or seek intervention. The failure to see any of these actions will confirm to this nation Ramotar’s comfort, input and satisfaction with this escalating depravity.
The people’s tax dollars must not be used to attack, abuse and violate them. Having suffered for so long it’s time they be brought to an end.
We are confronting a situation where the government is consistently failing to positively execute its duties and create the kind of environment for good governance yet when the media report what they are doing they become offended.
Each and every one of us must have direct interest in media freedom as this is foundational to free, fair, transparent and credible elections and forging a society where the rule of law and good governance can prevail.
It is the media’s role as a pillar of democracy to protect the rights of every citizen and where necessary expose those who violate the laws of the land and the rights of others. The PPP’s continued attacks on private media are because they clearly do not desire the nation to work towards these goals and their activities be exposed. They would prefer Guyanese live in ignorance of their misdeeds and corruption, their lies, nepotism and criminal associations such as Roger Khan.
