Former Minister of Public Infrastructure David Patterson and former Minister of Finance Winston Jordan were interviewed by Mark Benschop on his Straight Up programme last Tuesday where they were asked to give account for what they did in their respective portfolios. The interview followed allegations made by the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) government that the A Partnership for National Unity and Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC) government was not a good steward of the economy and country.
When society could hear from both sides, particularly where evidence is presented, it creates a more informed citizenry and civil engagement which is good for the country’s body politics. Take a moment and listen to Jordan and Patterson give an account of their management and the reasons behind their decisions, even as they too put a spotlight on the PPP/C’s management of the economy and country.
