Mr. Ifraan Ali cannot be taken at his word. It was painful to have read an article quoting Mr. Ali as saying,” businesses were closing doors, facing bankruptcy under the APUN/AFC’s tax impositions,” published in Guyana Times, January 4, 2023. The President was however remiss in providing the list of names of these businesses. This is yet another example of comments from the PPP/C’s propaganda sewer.
Days prior, Mr. Ali appeared as a guest on Al Jazeera News, where he provided more misinformation which appeared to be at odds with the well-researched journalist’s knowledge of Guyana.
Editor, you carried a recent letter by me where I challenged the PPP/C regime to make public the 200 new taxes they claimed were imposed by the Coalition Government. We are still waiting. I cannot fathom why they continue to peddle blatant LIES about issues which can easily be fact checked.
I had the distinct privilege of serving in the caring Coalition Government, which lived up to our national motto of “One People, One Nation, One Destiny”. The PPP/C however continues to try to give the world the impression that under Mr. Granger’s leadership we were “bad boys.” All Guyana and the world can now clearly see the continuation of the PPP/C’s egregious behaviour from their 23yrs in office. Behaviour characterised by widespread racism, corruption, discrimination and plundering of the national coffers with impunity.
Finally, I advise Mr. Ali to stop wasting time on propagandizing, and focus instead on governing inclusively and framing policies to educate, feed, clothe, house, and provide good health care services for ALL Guyanese. Use our newfound wealth to make Guyana a better place for all, Mr. Ali!
