There is no plot to remove David Patterson from the Public Accounts Committee of the National Assembly because the People’s Progressive Civic Government “is afraid of scrutiny of its accounts” as is being claimed by the APNU+AFC.
This shabby defense that the Opposition has manufactured is merely to justify his continued Chairmanship at a time when public trust in him is at an all-time low.
From news reports I’ve read it is clear that the intention of the Government MPs is not to remove Patterson altogether but ethics and decency dictates that he removes himself from chairing this important committee which is charged with overseeing government expenditure. As it is he has refused to resign so the PPP/C MPs are correct in pursuing the current course. So, this docile and immoral attempt to trample with the facts on this situation will not be victorious. All right-thinking Guyanese are watching.
