Because of numerous calls from reporters, associates and friends, I find it necessary to clarify issues raised in your May 24th edition in an article that stated that myself and another senior official were ‘axed’.
I would suggest that the term ‘axed’ was not appropriate. I officially retired from public service years ago, and was retained on a three-year contractual basis which expired on May 15. The Government chose not to renew the agreement and although no reasons were stated, the Cemetery Road Bridge was not and could not have been an issue in my case, as your reporter speculated. I have no intention or desire to have further debate or discussion on this.
I would however, like to express my appreciation for being allowed to serve my country as a senior public official for the past thirty-eight years. I was allowed to participate in the conceptualising, planning, designing and implementation of most of the major transport infrastructure projects in Guyana and served as Guyana’s National Coordinator for IIRSA – the South America Infrastructure Integration Initiative since 2003.I thank those who supported me and shared in the success.
