It is indeed quite commendable having viewed the Guyana Cricket Board’s website which contains invaluable information about the Board’s functions as well as that of the three county boards. Information on the history of the establishment of the GCB is very enlightening. A brief synopsis of the structures of the three county boards is also featured on the website.
I was interested to read about the county of Essequibo and in particular the information posted about the North Essequibo Cricket Committee, which is one of eight area committees that make up the Essequibo Cricket Board.
I was very surprised to note that the GCB could have placed such information as being official when in fact it is misleading, incorrect and without any factual basis.
I am even further of the opinion that the haste to post such information without verifying the facts was a deliberate attempt at the time to discredit the legitimate body that governs cricket in North Essequibo.
The inaccurate information implies that the NECC held its AGM for 2011 on 2011/02/13 at Sparta, with Mr. Anand Azad securing the Presidency.
However the NECC held its election on 2011/01/30 at the ECB Hostel where Mr. Prince Holder was elected as President.
Such verifiable facts are in the domain of the ECB which never recognized any other entity, except the Prince Holder led NECC.
As a member of the NECC, I am therefore obliged to set the record straight and in the process I wish that GCB will do likewise in disseminating accurate and official information on behalf of the Board.
