Reference to your front page news headlines (KN Sep 17, 18, 19), please note that regardless of which party is in government, the nation should be told who own the oil blocks. Who will benefit from the oil blocks? We learn that portions of the oil blocks were sold to foreigners but no taxes were collected and no profit sharing paid to Guyana. Worse, few Guyanese are hired in the oil industry. And the US$140M collected so far and sitting at a New York bank – would Guyanese reap much benefits from it? Who will manage it? Will the money go to a handful of corrupt politicians?
When it comes to oil money, it seems that a few politicians from three political parties are hiding information from the public. They behave like they plan to share loot; behaving like kindred peas in a pod.
They accommodate each other on misappropriation of the peoples’ money. There is an understanding when it comes to corruption. Plenty oil money is coming to loot. There may be plans to join forces for criminality.
Have Guyanese noticed that no one was convicted of corruption regardless of which party or politician in government? In opposition, one side attacks the other for corruption but when in office, it forgets about the corruption it condemned and those complicit. Are they protecting each other? Is it business as usual?
People are being murdered and there is race hate. The parties blame each other for race violence. Opposing each other publicly is for public consumption to fool the population. On oil and misappropriating funds, I believe, their position is the same. They may be focusing on financial criminality relating to oil dollars and therefore may have unity on oil money. Neither side will commit to sharing it with the nation, especially the poor, I am convinced.
The budget was recently presented and is being debated. The oil money was not included in the current budget presentation. Why? One honcho didn’t want the budget to include oil money. He will handle that himself. Is there a plan for the oil money? Will the plan be above board? Is this why a Lambada is placed in a Ministry in a very crucial position to effectuate the plan of the master who is in charge?
