THE OIL MONEY – By Verian Mentis-Barker – XpressBLOGG

THE OIL MONEY – By Verian Mentis-Barker – April 30, 2019

The incumbent administration radiates questionable seriousness about things they speak of with notable solemnity.

Though Hughes – who has now earned as much of a reputation for tendering a resignation as he has for defending a certain criminal element – can, according to some, be precisely measured with a short moral/integrity yardstick. The Kaieteur News interview with him a few weeks ago lined up with what many of us are thinking about the nation’s oil bonanza and the channeling of potential revenues.

For several months, the Government held Citizens Right To Know hostage by refusing to offer shareable details of a Production Agreement and all related contracts to both known and potentially existent oil wells.

    There will be theft, loss, from home and abroad, even with all the safeguards, it should not come as a surprise, human nature. Built in checks and oversight can of course limit the abuse. Guyanese have been let down by Governments and their promises before, this time because the stakes are so high, they must be more, much more active.
    First by demanding the systems and services that need improving should be done as a priority, such as hospitals and ancillary, roads and infrastructure and what I think is very important the expanding and modernization of the Agricultural Section, all of these will be around long after oil is gone.
    Today, reading, analyzing, contracts means very little to the public, they are broken anyhow [see Chinese] actually demanding specific improvement might merit consideration, even as a new concept.
