– Ali ‘saddened’ by news of her resignation
Former Housing and Water Minister and current PPP/C Member of Parliament, Mr. Irfaan Ali said he is “saddened by the news that Chief Executive Officer of the Central Housing and Planning Authority, Mrs Myrna Pitt has tendered her resignation with effect from July”.
“While I served as the Minister of Housing and Water during the Peoples Progressive Party Civic’s tenure in office, Mrs Pitt proved to be a competent, ardent and committed public servant as well as professional,” Ali said in a statement today.
“She executed her functions with distinction and demonstrated very high levels of dedication despite the challenges faced by the entity while rolling out various policies and decisions as adumbrated by the Government with collective and comprehensive input from the staff at the Central Housing and Planning Authority,” Ali stated.
He said it was “definitely an honour to have served alongside Mrs Pitt” who proved concerned and truly committed to Guyana’s overall development.
Noting that she was a stern and disciplined professional, Ali said he “enjoyed our moments working round the clock during my tenure as Minister whether in the field, Building Expo, during one of our many One Stop Shops or our retreats. Guyana should be proud of this daughter. I pray that God grants her the continued good health and peace. The CH&PA and Ministry has lost one of the best and brightest minds in its field of work.”
