The Ministry of Finance notes with consternation an incredible headline in today’s Stabroek News ‘Finance Minister proposal on GuySuCo Chair draws opposition at Cabinet’ and the equally incredible story that followed.
For the record, the Minister of Finance, Winston Jordan was in fact attending an important Pre – Governors meeting of the IDB in Jamaica which ran from February 26 to 28, 2018. He returned to Guyana last night.
Therefore, contrary to Stabroek News ‘sources,’ Minister Jordan was NOT present at Cabinet on Tuesday and consequently, did not ‘propose, argue, make a presentation or reasoned’ with Cabinet as reported.
The Ministry of Finance calls on the Editor of Stabroek News to retract forthwith all actions attributed to the Minister of Finance in its article and to apologise to its readers for this misinformation.
