Strip Harmon’s powers, enforce code of conduct for Govt. officials – AFC

Strip Harmon’s powers, enforce code of conduct for Govt. officials – AFC

APRIL 11, 2016 | BY | (Abena Rockcliffe-Campbell)

The Alliance For Change (AFC) says that too many responsibilities have been placed in the hands of Minister of State, Joseph Harmon. The Party thinks that this is the root of many problems in the coalition government which it is a part of.

In a statement issued last evening, AFC revealed that key leaders met yesterday on a retreat which is part of an ongoing effort to review the party’s performance. At that forum, the politicians also discussed a number of issues of concern to the Party. The AFC also reviewed and considered internal matters with regard to the party’s operations and structure along with its role as part of the Coalition Government of Guyana.

“Among the matters discussed at the retreat was the issue of the appointment of a Ministerial Advisor on Business Development by the Minister of State and other revelations in the public domain.”   Continue reading

AFC suspects cover up in NCN probe

AFC suspects cover up in NCN probe

    ….   Calls for full disclosure

The AFC initiated removal of subsidy to NCN has resulted in the disclosure of gross financial irregularities at the State owned National Communications Network. The Party now feels fully vindicated for taking the bold and unprecedented step to cut the allocations for NCN that was presented in the 2012 National Budget. The people of Guyana now see it was the right thing to do.

As a result, of the decision to cut the allocation, we learnt that NCN was raking in more than $500 million from commercial activities, leading President Ramotar to order a probe into the company’s operations.

We have all since learnt that persons at NCN were collecting money on behalf of the company and putting it into their personal bank accounts. This is tantamount to fraudulent conversion. We do not know the full scope and depth of financial impropriety at NCN whether it is confined to the revelation of $3 million from GT & T or whether there is more. We suspect, based on the government’s call for the resignation of the CEO, that there is much more.    Continue reading
