THE APNU+AFC is embarrassed that the President, His Excellency Dr. Irfaan Ali, advocated for reparative justice for the descendants of slaves on an international platform such as the United Nation. As such, they have resorted to infantile attacks against the President. This is typical behaviour on their behalf and comes as no surprise to any of us right-thinking Guyanese. Nevertheless, their actions should be condemned as they are distasteful.
The PPP/C Government’s advocacy on the issue of reparative justice puts the entire Coalition to shame and runs contrary to the racist narrative that they have been peddling. As a result, they are now clutching at straws and desperately trying to paint the government in a bad light. But, even as they attempt to do so, everyone can see their desperation and how it reflects back unto them. It is also another clear example of how they failed the very people who voted for them in the 2015 General and Regional Elections. In fact, whilst in government, they neglected the ordinary Guyanese, particularly those who supported them in favour of their corrupt business cronies.
The PPP/C is currently serving in the interest of all Guyanese and their actions reflect that even on the world stage. From my vantage point, it can be said that the government is showing the Coalition up, hence their resort to these sorts of attacks against the President. We can expect more of this sort of behaviour from the APNU+AFC and their shills as their conjured racist narrative fails to produce the sort of results they are hoping for. What they fail to realise is the harder they try to attack the President with these inconsequential things, the more they are setting themselves up for more failure. As Guyanese, we are smart enough to recognise how disruptive and obstructionist the APNU+AFC cabal is at the moment, especially after hearing the President’s speech and seeing all the post-UN engagements with the President and his delegation.
