The great thinkers sermonize that “Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.” I thought I had adequately addressed President Bharrat Jagdeo reckless allegations on March 10, 2011 (refer http://www.stabroeknews.com/2011/opinion/letters/03/10/president-misrepresented-record-of-accomplishment/) but I guess not.
The old people always say, some people are denser than others and from these “fuse blow out moments”, it is clear that madness is at some people’s door steps as the week turn into days and the days turn into hours and the hours turn into seconds. The end is near for the unrighteous regime.
But let me address the slander uttered by a person most unfit for public office. The person in question was quoted as making an allegation that “Singh has been fired five times from five different places for stealing”. “He has done this over and over”. Well for his information, Sasenarine Singh worked on three occasions with the Government of Guyana. So it has to be a real unintelligent Government that hires a person, then fires him and then hires him and then fires him, not one time, not two times, but three times. But this “fuse blow out moment” is nothing else but a red herring for desperate people who have suddenly realized that the end is near, that the final curtain is here.
I have in my possession a signed copy of a letter from the Ministry of Agriculture accepting my resignation so it is either people are being mis-advised or they are loyal students of Josef Goebbels, the master propagandist. I have the evidence that I was in full receipt of my vacation allowance and full gratuity. Therefore, the Government has got to be mad, headed by a “madman” who will fire someone and then pay them full vacation allowance and gratuity.
Rather than mind my business, people should be concerning themselves with how they will account for, in a matter of weeks, the money that built a $500 million fortress at Pradoville when their earned income throughout their whole career adds up to less than $300 million.
Rather than mind my business, people will have to answer to the people why they deferred the passage of a pension law until the death of Janet Jagan. Did she say, “I will have none of this once I am alive”?
The President is very good at being nasty and childish. I dare him to provide the evidence that I have been fired five times. He should either put up or shut up or he can be easily accused of being, using Nigel Hughes words, a domesticated poultry, or as the Rasta man said a Yard fowl.
My professional record speaks for itself. I will not engage at the President’s level but choose to deal with issues. For me, I thank the President for energizing me as I recommit myself to the struggle of removing the barriers to Guyana’s development.
My vision is that Guyana will one day be the Singapore of the Americas. I am convinced that the likes of Mr. Jagdeo cannot accomplish this. I wish him well in his last hours as President and feel sorry for him as the hours become minutes and the minutes become seconds. I rest my case.
