Jagdeo urges Gov’t to release PPP contracts

Jagdeo urges Gov’t to release PPP contracts

Jun 30, 2016, News, http://www.kaieteurnewsonline....lease-ppp-contracts/

Bharrat Jagdeo, the Leader of the Parliamentary Opposition – the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), is urging the David Granger-led Administration to release to the public and the media, several controversial contracts that were signed by the PPP/C.

Jagdeo made this disclosure during a press conference hosted by the Party at its headquarters located on Robb Street, Georgetown yesterday.

These contracts include one for the construction of the road to the Amaila Falls; the contract for the Marriott Hotel; the Speciality Hospital among other contracts.

Jagdeo said that when A Partnership for National Unity+Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC) were in the opposition, they were pressing for the release of these contracts which they had labelled as “corrupt.”

Now that the proverbial shoe is on the other foot and the Coalition Government is claiming to walk the line of transparency, it should release these contracts to the public.

However, he did not disclose why the PPP never released them when that party was in Government.

“In the light of the call for greater transparency by the President and the Minister of Finance, we have asked for all of the contracts that were signed by the PPP that they said were corrupt, to be released,” he said.
The former President made reference to a particular contract – the Road to Amaila Falls which was undertaken by Makeshwar “Fip” Motilall.

“You would recall that they said with the Fip Motilall contract – that is the road to Amaila Falls– that that was a corrupt deal. The government, now, is in the possession of these evaluation reports when that project went to tender. Will they now release the evaluation report for the road to Amaila Falls to the public?”

Jagdeo said that since it was deemed by the then opposition that the Specialty Hospital was corrupt, the Government which now has possession of the contract, should make it public and prove to the public that it was corrupt.

He continued that the evaluation report for the Marriott Hotel should also be released since an evaluation was also done after bids were submitted.

“So in light of this, the Government – which claims that it (Marriott Hotel) was a corrupt deal, (has) now decided to expand the facility to put in the casino,”.

The Opposition Leader continued that since the then Opposition had said that the PPP was sole-sourcing the supply of drugs from the New Guyana Pharmaceuticals Corporation (New GPC), the pre-qualification evaluation report should also be released to the public and the media.

The Coalition Government had made several attempts to release contracts that would have come under scrutiny. However, for several reasons – one being “confidentially clauses” these contracts never made it into the public domain.

Lemme ask you a question,did i call you PPP mouth piece.

Why do you keep lumping me with the PNC ??

You giving them credit where credit is NOT deserved.  After one year of total failure, you still believe the rotten rope will strengthen. You should go and swim with Gilbakka.

The confidentiality clause was only applicable during the negotiation process. It is not applicable now, the govt can release the details of the contracts. 

there are possible cases pending for some of these issues.

Get your head out of the sand and start criticizing the PNC.  They promised you folks the moon and delivered hardship instead. 

On the other hand, now is an opportune time for you to remigrate back to Guyana, they find oil and there may be royalties doled out to every Guyanese on a monthly basis, similar to a welfare check. You and CaribJ can cash in. 

I will re emigrate when I choose to. Actually, they need me more than a hack like you. Plus you need to go at least so you can leave a foot print. You have more expenses than me and giving your earning power need the royalties more.

I doubt you would migrate to Guyana, only recently you were crying about moving to Spain. No white man will get any royalties in Guyana unless birth is proven.
