Vice President Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo is known for having numerous engagements
with the public, but after the incident of Chinese businessman ‘Su’ using his
relationship with him to allegedly harness bribe from other businesses the
engagement strategy will have to be revised.
The Senior Government Official at his first press conference after the incident, told
reporters that Su’s action cause him to feel ‘vindicated.’
He said “it is very difficult to know what people say before they come to your
office because you may think innocently they set up a meeting with someone and
they have an agreement with the person or take money from them.”
As a consequence of this, he said that he will have to revise how he engage with
the public and businesses.
But the Vice President made it clear that in the past he would try to facilitate
investment from the Government level to help with the creation of job, building the
country’s economy and to assist citizens in cases they were taken advantage of.
In the meanwhile, the Vice President assured Guyanese that he will continue to
engage with them and seek solutions to their problems because that is the mandate
of his Government.
