  • Coalition Government’s hijacking of national symbols

    first_imgDear Editor,Recent actions by the David Granger-led A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition Government have given rise to great cause for concern among Guyanese people, more so when one considers the significant efforts, under successive People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) administrations, that were made to advance a national project aimed at bringing Guyanese people together.Despite claims of efforts to bolster social cohesion, the coalition Government’s hijacking of national symbols – seen in the seizure of the national flag at Corriverton to prevent the flag-raising ceremony on the eve of our 48th Republic anniversary, the repainting on State House in the People’s National Congress (PNC) colour (green) and the repainting of other state buildings (from the Office of the President to RDC offices) in green – can only be described as pernicious.Post-independence, Guyana’s colonisers (and other foreign agents that stood to benefit) left our people with a legacy of division. While academics can debate the factors surrounding this problem, the fact it that a legacy of division has been accepted as such – a problem. And successive PPP/C administrations have worked to ensure that Guyanese are unified – by working to break stereotypes, delivering prosperity for all Guyanese, promoting national pride and bolstering a sense of a national identity among our people.Granted that naysayers may want to argue otherwise, the simple response to such persons is to simply call on them to produce facts. The fact is that national events were used to promote national identity and officials at these national events were not made to dress in the colours of any political party – like we saw with the officials along the route for the Mashramani parade last month. The fact is that all Guyanese prospered under successive PPP/C administrations and a simple comparative of the standard of living of our people pre-1992 and post-1992 will attest to this. The fact is that the stereotypes peddled (particularly those pushed along the lines of race) have been rubbished. The fact is that Guyanese in the Public Sector did not have to worry about being sidelined because of differentiating factors – unlike what we have seen in the past three years under the APNU/AFC Government.The PPP is on record condemning moves that divide our people and the Party will continue to protest any such future acts. All Guyanese, regardless of race, religion, or any other differentiating factor, must object to Government actions that divide our people. Looking at the big picture, our country stands to bear significant losses if retrograde actions – including the recent hijacking of national symbols – are given acceptability in our society.The undermining of national unity is unacceptable and any such action must be condemned by all Guyanese, regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum.Regards,Zulfikar MustaphaExecutive SecretaryPeople’s ProgressivePartylast_img read more

  • 5 Southeastern Counties’ Road Works Underway

    first_imgThe Bridge Rural Communities for Trade (BRCT) has announced a US$500,000 phase one road project to connect five southeastern counties.The counties are Grand Gedeh, Sinoe, River Gee, Grand Kru and Maryland. BRCT is a non-profit organization with both local and international support.The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President of BRCT, Mr. Gbenimah B. Slopadoe, told journalists in Sinkor that BRCT would deal with the “very difficult and impassible” road conditions of the southeast that are the causes of the shortage of basic commodities and social services that occur in the region from May thru November each year.As a result of difficult road conditions in that part of the country, a gallon of gasoline which was previously sold at L$350 is now sold at L$1,000, and commercial drivers, due to the high cost of gasoline, have resolved not to travel to the southeast. Additionally, a 25kg bag of rice which was sold at L$1,900 is now L$3,500. “This situation is getting serious and harmful for those who cannot afford to get the capital to purchase food items, especially the nation’s staple food, rice,” a resident said.Reports also said business owners in Maryland County are compelled to go to neighboring Cote d’Ivoire via canoes and risk their lives to purchase goods.Some residents of southeastern Liberia have vowed not to participate in the country’s October electoral process as a result of the continuous suffering they are going through due to the bad condition of roads in their various localities.It has been gathered that many of those who spoke on the issue said they would mobilize other citizens in that part of the country not to be part of the October presidential and legislative elections because of lack of attention to their plight by the government.According to BRCT, the project to connect five southeastern counties and deal with the “very difficult and impassible” road conditions of the southeast will repair and maintain laterite roads, build bridges and insert culverts to connect the southeastern counties with the rest of the country.Mr. Slopadoe is the former District # 2 Representative of Grand Kru County and is a non-aspirant in the October elections.“The impassable sections of the roads are caused by mud, a man-made problem, and therefore it can be prevented.“I am pleased to launch the Bridge Rural Communities for Trade in the Global Community as a strategic platform and champion the cause to pave Liberia’s inter-county highways to enhance mobility and improve the living conditions of the citizens including transportation, trade, income, health and education,” Mr. Slopadoe said.He said Phase One is a two-year short term activity, and that a multilateral taskforce would be established to lead a private and public endeavor to prevent Liberia’s inter-county roads from becoming impassable during the raining season. The phase is carried out under the slogan, “Keep Liberia’s Inter-county Roads Open during the Rainy Season 2017 to 2018.”“Phase 2 is a ten-year long term activity dubbed ‘Pave Liberia’s Inter-County Roads,” he said.He indicated that the multilateral taskforce would comprise local government, government institutions, corporate entities, donor partners and the fundraiser (BRCT). The taskforce will be responsible to mobilize, manage and execute resources required in the short and long term implementation of the project.“The Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) will receive the funds and logistics and implement the projects, and the General Auditing Commission (GAC) will provide fiscal and administrative guidance,” he noted.Mr. Slopadoe served as a member of the 52nd Legislature and was the chairman on the House Committee on Labor. He sponsored two bills including one that required all government construction contracts valued up to one million United States dollars be awarded exclusively to Liberian owned construction companies (with at least 51percent of shares owned by Liberians) and capital incentives for farmers intended to revitalize the country’s agricultural sector as an investment to reduce food insecurity, create employment and income.Neither of his bills was passed into law. He recently served as a consultant with the House of Representative on a Legislative Project.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Guyana to receive US$900M loan from Islamic Development Bank

    first_img– to assist with several local development initiativesThe Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) has, for the period 2018 to 2020, committed to providing Guyana with financial and technical assistance to the tune of US$900 million, which will be directed into the country’s key development areas to assist with its plans for continued social and economic development.This disclosure was made by Finance Minister Winston Jordan during his address at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the IsDB Group in Tunisia. According to the minister,Finance Minister Winston Jordan at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the IsDB Group in Tunisia.this money will aid Government’s plans in a meaningful way, as it would give direct support to several Government programmes in many developmental areas.“The Bank fielded a programming mission in December 2017, where a work programme for the three-year period 2018-2020 was formalized. Financing and technical assistance of about US$900 million will be directed to key development areas; including economic infrastructure, rural development, human development, and trade and competitiveness,” the minister explained.Jordan claimed that Government has been steadfast in its resolve to ensure growth in the economy. That resolve, according to him, resulted in economic growth averaging about 3 percent between 2015 and 2017. The Finance Minister noted that this growth was achieved at a time when many of Guyana’s neighbours were facing low or negative growth rates and reduced standards of living.“My Government has and continues to concentrate on a number of key strategic approaches for the economic well-being of our country. These include: strengthening national planning; building a robust oil and gas industry; and consolidating the macroeconomic fundamentals,” he said. “But importantly also, the aim is to foster economic diversification and strengthen private sector capacity, among other (things).The Finance Minister told the meeting of Guyana’s Green State Development Strategy, which is aimed at becoming a living example of the country’s commitment to the planet. “Our Green State Development Strategy will ensure sustainable growth with equity that redounds to the economic well-being of every citizen. It could become, quite possibly, a model for other like-minded economies,” he added.Jordan also said that strategy is being fashioned through a collaborative and consultative process, and will inform future financing streams for the country. It will also allow the Guyanese people opportunity to shape the scale of the country’s development priorities, given the resource flows.He said Guyana will continue to employ timely policy measures to correct imbalances and mitigate negative effects that could stymie growth.He said, “In this regard, we aim to strengthen our analytical capability to determine the macroeconomic effects of various policies and interventions employed to grow our economy. Through the continued partnership with our multilateral partners, and specifically with our growing engagement with the IsDB, my Government is very enthusiastic about the full realization of our development agenda.”Reference was also made to Guyana adopting a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Framework, which Government recognizes has the potential to expand the resource cloak for public sector investment in a prudent, efficient and effective manner. This Framework, he said, provides a structured platform for local and external private sectors to meaningfully engage with Government to achieve economic development.“Agriculture continues to be a major contributor to growth and expansion in our economy. In this regard, the Government has leveraged the inter-locking capacity of the Bank, and is currently in an advanced stage of designing a Reverse-Linkage Project with the Malaysia Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MARDI) which will assist in updating Guyana’s expertise and technology in rice production.”This project will support the introduction of innovative rice varieties that are more resilient, and will significantly increase rice yields per acre, Jordan said.Shifting his attention to another key area, the Finance Minister said Government continues to be proactive in the promotion of non-traditional agricultural products, new technologies, and supporting infrastructure with the ultimate goal of enhancing national production and productivity.These efforts will not only ensure national food security, he said, but also substantially transform the cost structure and competitiveness of Guyana’s agriculture sector. With the Bank’s continued support as a financing mechanism and provider of technical expertise, Guyana is optimistic about growth.In helping to set the agenda of ensuring human capital development that could assist with the long-term productivity and growth at both micro and macro levels of the country, Jordan noted that Guyana and the IsDB have programmed a project to improve national education at the primary and secondary levels.This project will embrace the Inquiry Based Science and Mathematics Education (IBSME) approach. It will also make use of UNESCO’s Global Micro-Science Experiments programme and supporting mathematics kits, and will lead to the integration of mathematics through science lessons. The aim is to raise the level of scientific and mathematics literacy among teachers and students.The minister also used the opportunity to reaffirm Guyana’s commitment to resolve to further strengthen its cooperation with the Bank and fellow member countries.“It is quite evident that our joint efforts can go a long way in bringing about socio-economic stability and prosperity in Guyana, which can redound to the benefit of the Latin American and Caribbean Region. Guyana remains hopeful for its future, and grateful for the Bank’s support.” he added. Public Relation Officer of the Ministry of Finance Wanita Huburn confirmed that 99 percent of the US$900M would be in the form of loans.last_img read more

  • ‘COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE GIRLS’ SAYS LADIES FOOTBALL MANAGER DAVY

    first_imgGeraldine: Missing from the action this weekendARMAGH will be slight favourites against Donegal’s Ladies on Sunday – but the roar of some extra Donegal fans might just swing things our way.With the Minors and Senior Men playing at Clones earlier in the day, a quick jaunt up the road to Lisnaskea will hopefully entice football fans to go and support the Senior Ladies in their Ulster Championship semi-final clash with the Orchard County (throw-in at 5pm).“Both sides will be in Division 2 of the league next year,” says Donegal manager Davy McLaughlin. “We were relegated from Division 1 having lost all the games, whilst Armagh were promoted from Division 3 having won all of theirs, so they are probably slight favourites because of that; they’ve been winning.“But we’ve come a long way in a short time. I’m there 10 or 11 weeks and we’re going to give it a good go. We’ll throw everything at it.”A few extra supporters from Tir Chonaill might help.“I was delighted with the slot and venue; it means fans leaving Clones can stop off in Lisnaskea, get a bite to eat and come and support the Ladies,” says Davy. He has lost some well-known players for various reasons “but we’ve planned for most of those” says the Moville man.Therese McCafferty and Roisín Friel are in America on holidays.He knew he’d be without Geraldine McLaughlin after a cartilage operation, but has also now lost her sister Nicole to a hamstring injury. His own daughter Niamh will be missing as she’s still at college in Britain.“I saw Armagh beat Tyrone and they beat them well, so they’re a good team,” says Davy.“But we’re going to go in and give it a go. If fans from Clones come along and get behind the girls, it might give us that wee edge and get us to an Ulster final.” ‘COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE GIRLS’ SAYS LADIES FOOTBALL MANAGER DAVY was last modified: June 21st, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:armaghdonegal ladiesFootballUlster semi-final clashlast_img read more
