Just days after authorities announced that Exxon-Mobil, an American oil giant has found hydrocarbons offshore Guyana but was yet to determine if it was in commercial quantities, the leader of the opposition coalition, David Granger announced that if he wins next Monday’s General Elections government would stash away some of the earnings from the natural resources sector for future generations.
