Please permit me to express my analysis to the people of Guyana. Over the past month there has been a topical issue on signing bonus from Exxon Mobile and the disclosure of the contract that was signed since in 1999. The Jagdeo administration of course was in power then and keeps focusing on US$18 million bonuses while losing the main focus that Guyana oil has more than just 18 million. Mr. Editor, whether we like it or not, Guyana will be an oil producing country and we have to all prepare for it whether rich or poor. What Jagdeo and his friends forgot that while they were in power they didn’t even place one bit of emphasis to improve the University of Guyana to equip its citizen for the Oil and Gas Industry. It’s a shame that we have no engineer that will be hired to be on that rig. All we can do is provide services that will go to some of their rich colleagues. They wanted the majority of their supporters to cut cane and live on the sugar industry.
Tell me Mr. Editor was it a miracle when the coalition government won power, we found Oil? You want to tell me that the PPP didn’t have any knowledge that there was oil out there. Thank God for the Granger administration that they are trying their best to open the eyes of the sugar workers to prepare for the Oil and Gas industry. l keep saying this in many of my chats that we should borrow a page from Qutar. I am tired of people talking of signing bonuses and losing focus on the billions yet to come. We are over ten years behind technology. This is another disappointing topic on the PPP administration. They couldn’t even run a simple fiber optic cable.
Mr. Editor, I recently read that CGX wants to renegotiate its contracts and plans. I will advise my government not to do so because they didn’t inform the people of Guyana of their progress and status but because Oil is hot in Guyana everyone wants a bite of the cake. Let them wait; we have current issues to deal with and a nation to transform. United we will do this!
