Jagdeo’s presidency is synonymous with corruption, extra-judicial killings and drug lords – AFC

Jagdeo’s presidency is synonymous with corruption, extra-judicial killings and drug lords – AFC

– Has no moral authority to judge any sitting govt

Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo

Since Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo’ has a remarkable legacy of failure to his name then he has no place awarding any grade to the performance of the APNU+AFC Government.

The AFC stated that it finds the “F” grade to be devoid of objectivity or fairness. It said that this move however fits with the far-right extremist approach and utter desperation that Jagdeo has adopted in dealing with matters as Opposition Leader.   This comment was made by the Alliance For Change (AFC) last night. Its statement was in wake of the “F” Grade recently handed out to the administration by Jagdeo.

1. Consider this argument. The Central Bank (CB) Governor has refused to print any more money for the Minister of Finance (MOF). The MOF needs printing to continue to pay civil servants and keep Government running. If the Government can’t pay the civil servants this month, all hell will break loose. Therefore the CB Governor has to be fired so that somebody who will agree to print the money can be appointed. These delays being granted by the High Court are making the MOF nervous. Time is of the essence. But Jeez, if the printing continues, the economy will only get sicker.

2. Foreign reserves are at an all-time low and heading further south, and with the poor tourist season we are now having, not much hope for recovery. The Government can’t even put its…
