[www.inewsguyana.com] – President Donald Ramotar while underscoring the need for a more technical and educated workforce locally, has condemned what he described is an attack against several ‘technical’ professionals who work for the Government.
He said there seems to be a campaign to prevent good people from working for the public sector.
Recently several senior government employees have been criticized by opposition forces for their involvement in several national projects. Among them are Head of the National Industrial and Commercial Investment Limited Winston Brassington, Clerk of the National Assembly Sherlock Isaacs and Head of the Guyana Energy Agency Mahender Sharma.
“Such attacks will not do anyone any good, it will only create an atmosphere where people are afraid to work,” the Head of State said. He was at the time delivering the feature address at the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association ( GMSA) 50th Anniversary Dinner.
The President who has also been accused by the Opposition of in particular of protecting Brassingston for bad decisions he made in investing state funds in the construction of the Marriott Hotel said “such behavior is from another era and should not be encouraged… It is not good for democracy, not good for business and not good for the country.”
