How can Granger offer free land to foreigners when Guyanese still longing to get their own? – Nandlall asks

Opposition Member of Parliament, Anil Nandlall, is of the opinion that President David Granger overstepped his authority, acted recklessly and without consideration for his own people when he made an offer of free lands to persons across the Caribbean affected by recent hurricanes.

Recently, Granger was quoted by several local and regional media houses offering Guyana’s vast land mass as ‘a gift’ to all people from several Caribbean nations to relocate and rebuild their lives in the aftermath of devastating hurricanes, Irma and Maria.

He said this in the United States, in a side interview just before addressing the United Nations’ General Assembly.

Nandlall recently said that he empathises with all his “Caribbean brothers and sisters who have been devastated by these horrific natural disasters and I fully endorse the Government’s efforts to assist these persons.”

However, he said, “With the greatest of respect, His Excellency, the President cannot arrogate unto himself the power and authority to offer Guyana’s land mass to foreigners without a word of consultation with or approval of the real owners of these lands – the citizens of Guyana.”

Nandlall noted that the issue was not discussed with Guyanese before.

“It was neither raised in nor debated by the Parliament of Guyana. Neither the Leader of the Opposition nor anyone else was informed or consulted in any manner whatsoever.

“Are we so unimportant in the President’s mind? From whence has President Granger derived the authority to offer our patrimony and our sovereign territory to foreigners?”

Nandlall noted that President Granger personally revoked more than 50 multi-year-old leases held by rice farmers in Region Five.

He said, “This is a President whose Government has attempted to seize Core Homes and the lands upon which they are constructed, which are owned by Transports and Certificates of Title by our single mothers.

“Again, these actions have been declared by our Constitutional Court to be unconstitutional and unlawful. In the same vein, this is a President whose Government has scrapped a housing programme, which has delivered over 100,000 house lots to Guyanese of every ethnicity and all walks of life.”

Nandlall also questioned how can President Granger then offer Guyana’s most important national asset to foreigners without even offering the nation the courtesy of a consultation? “What about the thousands of Guyanese who are still clamouring to own a piece of land in their own country? Do they not matter to the President?”

Nandlall is not alone in his questioning of how Granger can bypass Guyanese in need of land to offer foreigners; that and similar sentiments were reflected by Guyanese who commented on an article in Trinidad’s News Day which announced Granger’s offer.

Perhaps Granger is unaware of basic issues and the role of parliament.

Typical PNC lifestyle.

Oh yes good old PPP Indo KKK screaming.

Listen guy. Some of your PPP folks get drunk, roll in the gutter and then go home to beat up their wives because there is no food in the house.  This after they drank out their pay.

Our honorable jackass in president is giving away what he don't own. I don't believe that a president has the power to share out state owned land. 

Druggie if Guyanese fled to volcanic peaks and coral reefs and have refused to return since Jagdeo used to go and beg them to do so.  No Islander is going to take up Granger's offer. As broken down as Dominica is they would laugh at such nonsense, even as they try to cross the river that broke their homes in two.  They know enough Guyanese who arrived on that island, fleeing Jagdeo and not returning under Granger, that they know its a foolish thing to do.

Guyanese refugees from the PPP who fled to the BVI and who know that the PNC is no better, prefer to use flashlights, and bathe in buckets than return to that cursed land, damned by tolerating some of the worst politicians in the Caribbean.

Jagdeo sent BWee planes to fetch Guyanese living in Grenada when Ivan hit in 2004.  The Guyanese there, many being PPP supporters, told him no thanks.  Of the 4 planes that he paid for only 1 came in with passengers.

They scream that Jagdeo was in power soooo long ago (ignoring that Ramotar was a Jagdeo stooge so this is only 2 1/2 years ago). 

They also try to make people forget that Jagdeo will either run in 2020 or pick another stooge that he can manipulate.

Jagdeo is an extremely active player in Guyanese politics so his record is every but as relevant as that of Granger.  Especially as something tells me that Granger isn't going to be running in 2020.
