Finance Minister defends President’s son

ramotar 13thThe Minister of Finance Dr Ashni Singh has taken offense to questions asked by the Opposition about the salary of Alexei Ramotar, the oldest son of President Donald Ramotar. The President’s son is employed with the government as head of the e-governance project.

The main opposition APNU has asked the government to produce in the National Assembly the qualifications and experience of Mr Alexie Ramotar, who currently heads the E-governance project. That project, valued at over US$32 million, has been plagued with delays and a number of technical difficulties, and so APNU wants to know just why Mr Ramotar was handed the job.

The Minister of Finance, Dr Ashni Singh has come out in defence of the young Ramotar.

According to the Finance Minister, Mr Ramotar was hired in 2010, prior to his father’s run for Presidential Office and he was deemed the most qualified for the job at that time. The Minister also said that the young Ramotar remains one of Guyana’s most qualified in his field, with a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo, over a decade of work experience, including leading numerous projects in his field, and several academic awards and publications.

The Finance Minister said that APNU and the AFC, the country’s two parties which hold a combined majority in the National Assembly, are intent on ridding Guyana of all its human and financial resources.

    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    alternatives for another platform. I would

    a good platform.
