Mr. Irfaan Ali was qualified for the Master’s Degree programme
January 11 2019
Prime News, on Wednesday, January 9, 2018, carried a news item which relates to an India Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) Scholarship granted to Mr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali to read for a Master’s Degree programme in India.
At the time of Mr. Ali’s nomination for that programme, I was Head of the Public Service and Permanent Secretary, Public Service Ministry (PSM) responsible for training. I can attest to the fact that Mr. Ali was fully qualified and had the requisite skills and experience for his Master’s Degree programme.
Mr. Ali did Guyana proud by graduating with a high First Class Honours. On his return to Guyana, he was elected as President of the ITEC, Alumni Association and participated in several ITEC day activities hosted by the Indian High Commission in Guyana.
The Prime News report that Mr. Ali was not qualified for the Master’s Degree programme under ITEC scheme is therefore false and misleading.
Dr. N.K. Gopaul
Former Permanent Secretary
What is gopaul saying here...He may have been qualified as borne out by the fact he did well in his masters program. The public is seeking to know where he completed his first degree. Not that it matter to me but some one need to say the fellow was bright and his work experience was sufficient to warrant credits for the masters program or something like that.
Gopaul, jumped to the defense. There are some grey areas in Irfaan higher education accomplishment, he should present such to clear the doubts.
