[www.inewsguyana.com] – In responding to critics who do not take his suggestions seriously, Opposition Leader and former President, Bharrat Jagdeo says he considers himself to be a “credible messenger” in the eyes of the Guyanese people.

When questioned on Wednesday, December 09, 2015 during a press conference at Freedom House, Jagdeo said that his credibility will become more glaring while the APNU+AFC remain in government.

He told reporters that the people of Guyana want to see the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) back in office.

“As the days pass more and more, I am going to be justified, as the days pass…long before the term of this government ends, people would want the PPP because things are bad and it is getting worse; people will want the PPP back.”

According to Jagdeo, the PPP has a better manual for good governance, when compared to the David Granger led administration.

“Our management would look like a manual for good governance…compared to what they [government] have started and will continue to do. The PPP’s tenure in office would look like an IMF manual for good governance.”

The Opposition Leader further noted, “My credibility is on the ground. I see tons of people from the business community coming to meet with me now to say they’re clueless about what they’re doing.”

As it relates to economic stewardship, the former President said that the PPP can present a plan “tomorrow if you ask us in the PPP that would see a reversal of the economic fortunes facing this country. That brings credibility. What brings credibility is we have clarity on the environmental issues.”

According to Jagdeo, critics of the PPP should ask current government ministers why they have not submitted their statements of assets and income to the Integrity Commission.

“Members of the PPP have submitted over the years, their statement of income and assets to that entity, following the law. The people who been crying wolf, the same people on the other side, who been crying wolf, all the time, why don’t the Stabroek News or the bloggers ask them why for the past ten years, some of them have not submitted their statements of asset and income to the Integrity Commission, when they are required by law to do so and it is a criminal matter not to do so.”

  1. Dr. BJ is the most competent leader to take Guyana forward. Check his track record of accomplishments!!!! He transformed Guyana. PNC+APNU+AFC+WPA + +++ is trying to stain him and make people hate the man; the opposite is happening my frens,HARPMAN and SouljaBai

  2. The placement into power by the AFC/APNU consequent upon false statement of polls, the reinforced understanding that they lied to the population about corruption, they lied about mis management, they lied about almost everything thing they put their hands on including the amount of money in the treasury does lead one to believe that they are even far from learning to walk…. these beasts are not even crawling….. they are like crabs in a barrel….

  3. From where I am standing, for the 6 months Apnu is in Government, they have done almost the minute little from what they promise the nation that they will do. For only 6 months, it was only talk, excuses, back -peddling, mistakes. No accountability, racial clensing, and above all, dictorial procedures to control power. Only 6 months, 4 years and 6 months left, what is in store for this country only God knows. So I completely agree with the assessment that the nation will be happy to see the PPP Back in government.

  4. ”Even though the coalition is learning to walk given its own weaknesses”. Your words Emile
    When in opposition they boasted of having the personnel and policies to bring down crime
    They boasted that they had the economic plans and policies to get the country going into the 21st century.
    They accused the PPPC administration of corruption, favouritism, cronyism, and every other ism. What they accused the previous administration of, they are now doing a better job of all the accusations.
    Six months on and they are still learning to walk. What a load of garbage. They have no clue of what they are doing except giving themselves huge salary and other perks duty free/tax free. Oh yes! They are good at that.

  5. Members of the PPP have submitted over the years, their statement of income and assets to that entity, following the law. The people who been crying wolf, the same people on the other side, who been crying wolf, all the time, why don’t the Stabroek News or the bloggers ask them why for the past ten years, some of them have not submitted their statements of asset and income to the Integrity Commission, when they are required by law to do so and it is a criminal matter not to do so.”this information need to be sent to the American embassy and then to the IRS so they may investigate this current government on their wrong doing since they have been in power they just did nothing for the Guyanese people . no banks want to lend them money if you have a falling country who would want to do business with it. all this corruption they talking about no one of the ppp/c members have gone to jail if the corruption is so true put them in jail . all I hear is ppp/c so corrupted lock them up it has been over 6 month now you had so much time to investigate lock them up. weak up people . all I see is accusations made at the ppp/c and then they got to apologist . they afc/apnu keep repeting their mistake over and over again it a fail cause I voted for them and deeply regret it . their all talks no action it been six month my business fail business dead now. no money coming in people not shopping . that the truth it not about skin color it about where and how you will get food on the dinner table I don’t care who in power just that all Guyanese are getting food to eat. can you see the international banks don’t want to lend us money . the Georgetown hospital is a mess along with other hospital and they building a special hospital waste of money fix with we already have . they can but during election promise to do so . they keep going back on their words .

  6. No wonder you call yourself MADMAXX. That is a reflection of your mental state of mind. Who were planning to plant drugs on an outgoing passenger at CJIA? Ask Felix and Basil Williams. The PNC, a party that feels it has God given rights to rule against the wishes of the vast majority of the electorate, would do anything to remain in power now that they are there. They have never won an election in Guyana since universal adult suffrage was introduced. The world has changed since the dictatorship of the Burnham/Hoyte days. Granger would just be a one term President. WAIT AND SEE!

  7. Just wait. Patience is virtue Iarro. It would be too late to say: ”If me bi know”. Have you read that the President,Prime minister, vice presidents and ministers do not have to justify their spending when they are now on official trips abroad? And not only that. They can now spend by far more than what the President and Prime Minister and ministers were allowed to spend on similar trips and had to show how they spent they money they were allowed to. What does this tell you?
    The economy is almost in a melt down and these blood suckers continue to spend, spend, spend on themselves with no shame despite they shouted that they inherited an empty treasury.

  8. It’s a matter of time and the PPP/C will be right back in office. It has been proven that this Defacto Granger administration can’t govern Guyana. Just look around and you will see how doom and gloom things are today.

  9. Jagdeo boasts of being credible; says the people want PPP back in office.

    He told reporters that the people of Guyana want to see the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) back in office.
    The people in Guyana want PPP back in office to appease PNC supporters to win their hearts minds souls and “votes” ? That will never happen ever::
    The people want PPP back in office to neglect and take PPP main core supporters for granted where you can not even protect them from well known bandits?
    The people will want PPP back in office when it get some people with belly and balls to deal seriously with PNC and their thugs once and for all.
    One more fact to ponder:: Its not what the Guyanese majority want::Its what the US want the US gets:: PPP give the mighty US the feral blast..PNC will never do any such thing to massa ever..Massa says to PNC jump and PNC do as told.

  10. The CLARITY will be when all your criminal acts against the people of Guyana is revealed, and you and your cohorts are hauled off to jail!

  11. Jagdeo either is in deep denial or he is is suffering from terminal self-deception syndrome. Even though the coalition is learning to walk given its own weaknesses and the damaged path the corrupt PPP left behind, I would take the coalition over anything Jagdeo wants to run. The coalition would be a pack of asses to ever allow Jagdeo to run another government in Guyana. And now that CJ Chang is getting ready to leave, a return for Jagdeo to the presidency appears slim to impossible.

  12. FLAVO no people don’t want PPP back in office because they are full of corruption and some of yall got yall head up PPP ass yall can’t see pass yall nose

  13. It long now that the ppp/c take back this country from these clown That is waste a lot of money by showing that you giving some set of people to say they care my foot look all shine shoe got some stink sock that’s the apnu/afc

  14. Hip hip,,,the spelling of the word MACRO should be changed to NARCO,,,its the PeePeePee who have Guyanese pulled from the lines all over the world and searched by customs, the economy is dead now because the free for all lawlessness is crumbling,,,,,opposition For life, RIP PPP

  15. U MUST BE A SOUP DRINKER OR STEVIE WONDER, AN ECONOMY DRIVEN MY ILLEGAL ACTIVITY IS NOT DEVELOPMENT. FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL AND U WILL SEE.

  16. Yes I 100% agree with Flaco you hit on the nail. This govt with Rum jattan Nagamootoo are like snake in the grass they don’t care about Indian people 50% of the people that voted for opposition are not people base on their thinking.

  17. Wrong Mr. Jagdeo.
    The PPP would win election if Jagdeo, Ramoutar, Rohee and Irfaan Ali remove themselves from the PPP.
    Those four persons will forever be regarded by everyone with a little common sense as being racist, corrupt and/or incompetent. It was because of them the PPP has become the Opposition Party.

  18. Yes-Guyana and Guyanese needs the PPP to continue with the progress of this Country with Peace Love and harmony to rekindle the spirit of brotherhood and racial harmony and to continue with the macro economic activities.Truly the PPP has led us into the 21st century and has done a lot for Guyana and Guyanese as a whole.
