The United National Congress is baffled by statements made by National Security and Communications Minister Stuart Young regarding a Facebook meme which claimed that the Paria Fuel Trading Company is to be sold. Minister Young’s assertion that the UNC is responsible for this meme is baseless and borders on the absurd. One would think that given the fact that the murder toll in T&T has now surpassed 100, Minister Young would have more pressing matters to attend to than trolling Facebook.
The UNC would also like to remind Minister Young that it is his own government which created a chaotic message over whether Paria Fuel Trading Company is to be sold or not. Firstly the nation learnt via the company’s Chairman that an RFP for the sale of ‘Paria Fuel’ was put out, only to be told by the Minister of Energy, a day later, that this was “inadvertently done”. Now the Prime Minister has indicated to citizens that ‘Paria Fuel’ won’t be sold, but the government will take into consideration any bids it receives.
Clearly it is Dr. Rowley’s Government who can’t seem to get their minds or story straight over the future of Paria Fuel Trading Company. This Government has no clue how to govern this country.
The UNC suggests that if Minister Young and his fellow Ministers spent more time in their respective Ministries working instead of on social media, the nation can perhaps get some clear indication about the future of this important state asset, Paria Fuel Trading Company. Governance is not a game, it is about time they start taking their jobs seriously.
