I am following the Budget presentation this week in Parliament and as a resident of Good Hope Phase Three on the East Coast of Demerara, it was disheartening to hear Minister within the Ministry of Communities Valerie Patterson say that the APNU+AFC administration had embarked on a journey towards “the good life,” inclusive of providing accessible and affordable housing in sanitary and safe communities, with the necessities for “wholesome and dignified living for citizens in need”.
I believe that Minister Valerie Patterson and her team need to take a visit to Good Hope Phase Three and see how dignified and sanitary the circumstances are in which their tax-paying citizens are living, and let them know what happened to the moneys they paid for their lands? And they should say why this section of road cannot be resurfaced or at least the potholes patched.
Dear Editor, In reaction to Mr Sherwood Lowe’s letter captioned ‘Mendez has shifterd the CCJ gaze from Article 1 to Article 9 of the Constitution’ appearing in the Stabroek News of the 20th March, 2018, I would wish to submit that in my respectful recall the learned counsel for the Respondent in Richardson v Attorney General and Trotman asseverated that, in the absence of a credible definition of the terms “democratic” and “sovereignty” in Articles 1 and 9 of the Guyana Constitution, the court was required to construe these terms.
Dear Editor, Regional Executive Officer of Region Six, Ms Kim Stephens, is reported in the March 19, 2018 Stabroek News, during her remarks at the ceremony to honour the Rose Hall Martyrs on March 13, 2018, “that that severed sugar workers are ‘timid and afraid’ of diversification”.
Dear Editor, It would be remiss of me not to address the Guyana Times article of March 9, 2018: ‘Govt yet to receive report on $68M IDPAD conference’, since it is either a malicious article or one in which the author is wallowing in ignorance.
