Guarantees that petroleum production will be transformative for Guyana’s economic development and usher in prosperity for the people of the country are non-existent, according to the Peoples Progressive Party (PPP).

According to the PPP, the announcement of ‘first oil’ should have fueled the hopes and aspirations of Guyanese across the country, given the opportunities in the oil and gas sector.      Continue reading

Guyana Politics: Granger-led coalition “likely” to win next “close” election -US Congress report

The United States Congressional Research Service (CRS), a think-tank for the United States (U.S.) Congress, says some analysts believe that the David Granger-led coalition is likely to win next year’s general elections.

DEAR GUYANA: A poem by Ronald J. Daniels


Dear Guyana, you’re now an open door
You are attracting droves of folks to your shores

A lot has changed since oil is dripping from your pores

You’re no longer pre-historic like the dinosaurs
Unless its your fossils that are being accounted for
You’re no longer Ghana, but Guyana for sure
No longer a dot on the map; no longer obscured
