Dear Editor,I am reading the news for the day, and I see the bold headline captioned “Essequibians walk out of meeting with GPL.” It is quite a depressing scene to behold persons, utterly devastated by the constant blackouts, have as a last resort appealed to the state-owned GPL for some redress, only to be further frustrated by an endless supply of lame excuses from its representatives.It is a situation that would cause even the coolest of individuals in this country to become seriously irate. The point is: you cannot plan an event; say, a wedding, a church service, or anything for that matter, without that lingering backward thought in mind that there would be a blackout at some stage of the event. This is the naked truth, and it has tortured us these three doomed years of Coalition rule.The citizens’ utter frustration stems from the fact that, prior to 2015, all of us in this Guyana were recipients of a continuous and affordable electricity supply. With the ushering in of the Coalition and the so-called “good life”, we are now saddled with this retardation that would not go away.The plain truth, which this present regime cannot run away from, is that the PPP/C brought us out of those hellish years of the Guyana Embarrassing Corporation (GEC) into the marvellous light of success and enlightenment; but from what obtains at the present moment, we have gone right back into those PNC years of doom and gloom, where blackouts are our main concern.So what has this Government achieved in its three-plus years of illegal occupation, and the answer comes back: Nothing! As someone said, this PNC-led Coalition has chalked up on its debit side a series of failures that make the 28 years’ rule of Burnham pale into oblivion. You are talking about every conceivable sector contracting while the hard life exponentially increases.The situation is more distressing when you realise that everything in the economy functions on a power base; without it, everything grinds to a halt whenever a blackout occurs. In this regard, the economy has since been on a backward trend.Is this ‘the good life’? Is this the flourishing economy the PNC has fashioned for us? I say, “Hell, no! From all appearances, it is the horrible life!”Compare the present scenario with the progressive and visionary Amaila Falls Hydropower Project, and you will get the real picture as to where we are going. The PPP/C has left us an internationally accredited project which has been the envy of many a First World nation.Hydroelectric power generation is cheap, reliable, and environmentally friendly. It is something which, if it had been pursued, would have put all of our energy matters to rest. But the PNC, with no plans of their own in that vision-less mindset of theirs, purposefully scrapped this project and ushered in the intendant evils we now see on a daily basis. Instead of implementing this world acclaimed project, the PNC, for political expediency coupled with vindictiveness, closed that important chapter in our history.Guyana is doomed to failure. We see it and experience it in every facet of our economy. Our only hope comes from the strength and resilience in the populace out there to break away from the decadence and make an about change for the good.The Year 2020 will soon be here. Come on, people; let us get back on to the beaten path of success.Respectfully,Neil Adams
There was tension in the National Assembly on Monday as the perusal of the budget estimates got underway. When the estimates for the Office of the Prime Minister were examined, it became apparent that $65 million could not be accounted for.Prime Minister Moses NagamootooOpposition Parliamentarian Irfaan Ali, zeroing in on the revised estimates for 2018 for the Prime Minister’s Office, noted that it was indicated that the $65 million had been spent. When interrogated, however, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo denied this.“It would have meant that the money had to be released to the agency. And the honourable Prime Minister has to direct us (to where it was spent),” Ali stressed to the House. He was supported by his colleagues, including Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira.Ali noted that the sums which were saved from the stalled Constitutional Reform Process were actually wired to another programme. According to Nagamootoo, however, the sums are intact.“They would have done their adjustments and balancing of the figures. You would have a true reflection of the revised figure. The $65 million is within this figure of $107 million; it has not been expended,” Nagamootoo said.“This is up to December. The $65 million is reflected in the $107 million, and it cannot be considered as spent. If it is not spent at the end of the year — and we have no reason to spend it — it will be returned.”Commissioner of InformationThe announcement that, as of March 8, 2018, former Attorney General Charles Ramson is no longer Commissioner of Information also caused some consternation in the House. This was revealed when Nagamootoo was questioned about monies not being allocated for that constitutional office. Earlier, Minister of State Joseph Harmon had been asked about the absence of allocations, and had referred the matter to the Prime Minister. It was thus the first question confronting Nagamootoo from the Opposition.In his response, Nagamootoo said that while Ramson is no longer there, his office is examining ways of resuscitating the post. He noted that the process to replace Ramson as Commissioner has been held up by the litigation that was filed. This caused concern for the Opposition, as they noted the importance of the office.It was only last year that Ramson Sr, had filed legal action against Nagamootoo and Attorney General Basil Williams. Among Ramson’s contentions was that his salary for the previous month had been withheld.ExpensesMeanwhile, the Prime Minister also provided a breakdown for the money that was allocated to his office. Under line item 6284, ‘other’, a total of $80 million was budgeted. According to Nagamootoo, that money was used to purchase cell phones, internet-related activities, and for work study students.“Under that head, some of the items will be school tours organised to cover 50 schools at the cost of $3 million. Repairs to furniture and sofas, Website hosting and maintenance: $2 million. E Networks for $250,000; purchase of power strips: $40,000. Purchase of cell phones: $400,000. Stipend for work study students: $250,000; Prime Minister’s outreach programme: $5 million.“(for) Constitutional reform, an allocation of $38 million has been set aside. That will depend on whether the commission will be formed under the law that is now being reviewed by the Standing Committee,” Nagamootoo explained.
Christian Eriksen had reduced the deficit to 2-1 in the first half, but City will be crowned champions if United lose to bottom of the table West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.If United draw the race would also effectively be over as City would be 15 points clear with a maximum of 15 available to Jose Mourinho’s team, who have a vastly inferior goal difference.A United victory would keep City’s champagne on ice for a few more days at least.Fourth-placed Tottenham were powerless to halt City’s revival and a first defeat in 14 league matches shouldn’t ruin their bid to qualify for the Champions League.After sweeping through most of the season in regal fashion, City had crashed down to earth with a bump over the last 10 days.Their limp Champions League quarter-final exit against Liverpool came either side of their failure to clinch the title last weekend, when United came from two goals down to beat them.City’s hellish week had Guardiola warning his players that “anything can happen” as he recalled other great sporting collapses from seemingly invincible positions.But it quickly became clear that run of three successive defeats wasn’t weighing on City.Leroy Sane met Sterling’s cross with a searing volley that cannoned off a post with Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris rooted to the spot.Unusually sluggish, Tottenham weren’t testing City and, with a swagger back in their stride, Guardiola’s men took the lead in the 22nd minute.Most of their goals this season have come with a flourish, but for once City took a more direct approach.– City back on track –Vincent Kompany’s long pass caught Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez flat-footed and Jesus made him pay as he raced clear to fire past Lloris.City’s problems were suddenly a thing of the past and they went further ahead three minutes later.When Sterling weaved his way towards the Tottenham area, Lloris raced off his line to make a crude lunge that sent the City winger flying.While it was a clear foul, the contact appeared to be made just outside the area, yet, to Tottenham’s fury, Jonathan Moss awarded a penalty that Gundogan slotted home with ease.In the week Premier League clubs voted not to introduce the Video Assistant Referee system next season, this was a moment when the controversial replay technology would have been useful.Tottenham defender Ben Davies somehow escaped a red card for a horrible studs-up foul on Kompany, but the leaders still had a soft centre to their defence.Harry Kane was lampooned in some quarters for making what was perceived as a slightly greedy, if successful, appeal to have Tottenham’s second goal at Stoke last weekend credited to him instead of Eriksen.Kane at least returned the favour as Eriksen scored in the 42nd minute.Running onto Kane’s defence-splitting pass, Eriksen’s shot hit City’s Aymeric Laporte and deflected back onto the Tottenham midfielder on its way past Ederson.City regained control after half-time and should have been out of sight as Jesus scuffed badly wide and Sterling fared no better with a woeful close-range miss.But they moved within touching distance of the title in the 72nd minute.Lloris palmed Jesus’s shot to Sterling and the winger drilled into the roof of the net to leave City fans singing “we’re going to win the league”.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling were on target as City moved to the cusp of the Premier League title© AFP Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 14 – Manchester City are on the brink of winning the Premier League title after ending their troubled spell with a stylish 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.Pep Guardiola’s side extended their lead over second-placed Manchester United to 16 points thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling at Wembley.
Sheffield Wednesday stay sixth after a 0-0 draw with MK Dons, who remain nine points from safety behind a handful of teams with three matches left.Cardiff could still catch the Owls but their 2-1 defeat at Brentford was a big blow to their hopes. Scott Hogan’s late double did the damage for the Bluebirds but Kenneth Zohore replied two minutes from the end, however it was too little too late.Goals from Sol Bamba and Toumani Diagouraga saw Leeds beat Wolves 2-1 at Elland Road. George Saville pulled one back for the visitors.Greg Cunningham’s late effort earned Preston a point at Birmingham as it finished 2-2. Clayton Donaldson’s double had the Blues in control before Alan Browne halved the deficit and Cunningham levelled.Ipswich needed an injury-time goal from Jonas Knudsen to salvage a 1-1 draw at home to Fulham, who had led through Moussa Dembele’s 66th-minute strike.It was also 1-1 at the City Ground as Dexter Blackstock and Danny Graham got on the scoresheet in a draw between Nottingham Forest and Blackburn.Nahki Wells cancelled out Greg Halford’s opener for Rotherham as Huddersfield earned a 1-1 draw at the New York Stadium to cement their Championship status. Michael Keane’s injury-time strike earned Burnley a thrilling 1-1 Sky Bet Championship draw in a top-of-the-table clash with Middlesbrough at Turf Moor.It looked like a 70th-minute goal from £9million striker Jordan Rhodes, his third in two matches after his match-winning brace at Bolton on Saturday, would see Boro extend their lead at the summit.But Burnley boast the most potent attack in the division and they eventually found a way through the league’s meanest defence in the second minute of injury time when defender Keane bundled the ball home from close rangeIt extended the Clarets’ unbeaten run to 20 Championship matches and meant Sean Dyche’s team remain just two points behind Boro.It was probably the result third-placed Brighton were hoping for as they moved level on points with Burnley after a comprehensive 4-0 home win against QPR. Anthony Knockaert and Jiri Skalak scored quick-fire goals either side of half-time to put Albion in the driving seat before a Connor Goldson header and another Knockaert strike ensured a fifth win in six games for the south-coast club.At the other end of the table, Charlton’s goalless draw at already-relegated Bolton meant they will be joining Wanderers in League One next season.Hull and Derby guaranteed themselves a play-off spot with away victories.The Tigers fell behind to an early Jake Cooper header at Reading but goals from Abel Hernandez and Andrew Robertson saw them win 2-1.Derby edged a topsy-turvy game at Bristol City 3-2. Johnny Russell put the Rams ahead but goals from Jonathan Kodjia and Bobby Reid turned the game on its head before half-time. Craig Bryson equalised for the visitors before a Tom Ince strike sealed victory for Darren Wassall’s side. 2 2 Jordan Rhodes (top, right) opened the scoring for Middlesbrough at Turf Moor
