The gas to shore project at Wales would be by far the biggest venture in Guyana’s history and we learn about it in an offhand remark from second vice president Bharrat Jagdeo. No public scrutiny. Jagdeo says that’s where it’s going to go and like lemmings we accept.
Everyone still thinks he’s some genius but he’s the same man who:
1) Hurriedly arranged the Chinese funding for the $150M CJIA project that ended up being mostly used on a huge pile of sand because no one bothered to do a geotechnical study for the runway extension.
2)The Berbice River Bridge being paid for by exorbitant tolls ($2200 for a private car) as part of a deeply flawed BOOT contract that highly favours his friend Bobby Ramroop
3) The High Street building where the old NCN radio station used to be – unfinished because the ceilings were too low.
4) and FINALLY his masterpiece, the $200M Skeldon White Elephant that ruined the sugar industry
