[www.inewsguyana.com] – Alliance For Change (AFC) Member, Dr Veersammy Ramayya has been named as the new Regional Executive Officer (REO) for Region Six – East Berbice/Corentyne – and says he plans to address infrastructural work that was done in a substandard manner under the former People’s Progressive Party/Civic administration.

Ramayya had recently revealed his intentions to resign from the AFC after he was not offered a post that best suits his capabilities in the APNU+AFC government.

During a telephone interview with iNews on Thursday, September 03, Ramayya confirmed that he will be taking up the post on Monday, September 07, replacing Paul Ramrattan, who served in the capacity for several years under the PPP.

“As of now I am the one appointed by Government as REO…they realized that I am an asset…they know my input and they came up with this solution,” Dr Ramayya told iNews.

He says he is satisfied with this position since “the package is far more lucrative than what I was previously offered.” Dr Ramayya believes that his input is invaluable noting that “if it wasn’t for me, the APNU+AFC would not have (been in office) today.”

The AFC member indicated that he received his letter of appointment from the Office of the Prime Minister, where he had declined to take up a post when the coalition ascended to government.

He stated that the previous job offered to him would have effectively seen him working as a “Liaison Officer” to the Prime Minister where he would be required to “take calls and record complaints and then report back to the Prime Minister.”

Ramayya told iNews that although he had signaled his intention to resign from the AFC, he did not follow through with it after thinking the issue through.

Meanwhile, the AFC member also explained to iNews that among his priority objectives would be to ensure that any works being done in the Region are up to standard and the government’s monies are not being wasted due to works executed in a poor manner.

“All the substandard work I will have to look into…the infrastructural work at all the NDCs are very very poor,” Dr Ramayya told iNews.

  1. You keep calling this thieving crook Dr. As if he burnrd the midnught oil to EARN a doctorate. The honorary degree is as useless as he is. Speaking abour that thief bahaaRAT.The paper it is printed on is of more value.

  2. WELL DONE APNU/ AFC, WHAT YOU CALL THIS, ISN,T THIS CORRUPTION TO THE HIGHEST EXTENT, ISN’T THIS CALLED CABALISM, CRONYISM, WORK FOR THE BOYS.
    CAN RAMAYYA GIVE THE FORMULAE FOR THE ACCOUNTING EQUATION”, AND HE BEING THE REO FOR A REGION.
    ISN,T THIS POSITION A PUBLIC SERVANT VACANCY
    WHERE AND WHEN WAS THIS VACANCY PUBLISHED.
    THE MAN SAY HE IS AN ASSET WHAT HE REALLY MEAN IS THAT HE IS AN “ASS SET” TO BE BUGGERED BY THE APNU FRACTION

  3. Dr Ramayya means well. He has been a hard worker and one sincerely concerned with progress in Region 6 for the past twenty-plus years. He lost his daughter and has devoted himself to doing good in his area but like everything else, there were ups and downs. Wish him well as REO and hope his health improves. Good decision by the Hon Prime Minister. Amity, Confidence and Honesty are good traits for the region’s progress.

  4. As a Guyanese of African descent i have to say I agree with you Emile. What about Tarron Khemraj? Can’t they use him in the coalition? He seems to be quite talented.

  5. “They realized that I am an asset”. “This job is more lucrative”. “If not for me APNU/AFC would not be in power”. How will the government work with a man who has made such statements? Apart from that, isn’t an REO supposed to be a neutral professional? They should have let him go his way. He is too ‘mannish’. I thought better of him.
    By the way, don’t underestimate the input and impact made by Charandass Persaud of Berbice, the Bacchus guy from Essequibo and other Indo Guyanese in various regions in the run up to elections. Ramayya’s importance might not be as great as he thinks.

  6. I say it again the don’t havea clue of what the are doing ..the keep guessing … Trying all the wrong idea and practise

  7. What a hypocrite. It’s all about position. This Coalation will never work. These men are out there for power and position. Why would anyone trust this hypo.

  8. Listen fool, Paul Ramrattan was sent on leave by Nagamootoo. What does the PNC have to do with it. Be careful racist.

  9. Once they get what they want all is well and good. They don’t get what they want they become sour and bitter. This is all about money and power for these men.

  10. Paul Ramrattan contract would have ended on January of 2016 but was sent on three months leave by the PNC. Dr. Ramaya has really lower his sickly self (a man with two heart bypass) to take away bread from a youth mouth.
    HOW SICK !!!!!!!!!!

  11. IT’S ALL ABOUT MONEY FOR RAMAYYA !!!I IT’S ALL ABOUT MONEY FOR RAMAYYA !!!! IT’S ALL ABOUT MONEY FOR RAMAYYA !!!! IT’S ALL ABOUT MONEY FOR RAMAYYA !!! “THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL KINDS OF EVIL.” NO WONDER THIS GENTLEMAN ‘S HEART WAS DESTROYED BY ENVY AT THE SIGHT OF DR. JAGDEO’S HOUSE . ” PROGRESS BREEDS ENEMIES .”

  12. I don’t agree with the way this appointment was arrived at, given the publicity surrounding the doctor’s resignation from the AFC because he was dissatisfied with the previous job offer he received and turned down.

    I would like to see more AFC supporters and Indian Guyanese being appointed to boards and prominent professional jobs, thereby assuring Guyanese that inclusive governance extends beyond parliamentary parties or civil society groups and incorporates government jobs and contracts for qualified Guyanese, regardless of race.

  13. Congrats, but could you leave out some of the ”I’s”, personal material benefits. We cannot handle another Jagdeo Pradoville 1& 2 meteoric rise in personal assets.
