[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee says that the APNU+AFC administration is taking bread out of the mouths Guyanese with the recent dismissals and persons being asked to proceed on leave.
Rohee made specific reference to Alexei Ramotar, the son of former President Donald Ramotar and the case involving Former Town Clerk Carol Sooba.
The younger Ramotar was recently asked to proceed on leave to facilitate an investigation into the E-Governance Project which he heads; Sooba was also asked to proceed on leave but was subsequently dismissed.
“Mr. Ramotar was sent on leave in the middle of a forensic audit of the E-Governance project, even after he publicly declared that he is cooperating with the forensic auditors and more so, he is the ideal person to answer all questions relating to the financial transactions and activities of the project…this audit is nothing but a sham to get at professionals who are supporters of the PPP and at the same time discredit the transformational projects the PPP had embarked on while in government,” said Rohee in a press statement.
According to Rohee, the APNU+AFC government is not concerned about the competency of professionals, but rather concerned with getting rid of PPP supporters
“Additionally, the PPP takes note of fresh efforts by the Hamilton Green- led City Council to go after former two clerk Carol Sooba, who during her tenure exposed the massive corruption and inefficiencies at that Council.Having locked Sooba out of her office and arbitrarily dismissed her, Green and his acolytes have now heightened their ‘Get Sooba’ campaign,” said Rohee.
He said that these actions are contrary to President David Granger’s claim that he is not going to be taking bread out of anyone’s mouth.
“Though these grave injustices, the Granger Administration has clearly trampled on the basic human rights of the professionals, who, regardless of their political persuasion, have a right to work,” the General Secretary protested.
