Government has been given seven days to terminate the controversial drug bond contract or face being dragged into the courts.A letter, in the name of a private citizen, was dispatched to the Public Health Ministry’s Permanent Secretary on Tuesday that threatened legal action against the Government if it failed to rescind the tenancy agreement with Linden Holdings Inc – the company which owns the house on Sussex Street that has been rented by the State for .5 million monthly for storage of medical supplies.Majeed Hussain of Diamond, East Bank Demerara, registered his concerns about the shady deal in the correspondence, where he laid out his case for demanding that the agreement be quashed.Chronicling the series of events that unfolded in this scandal, the taxpayer outlined several reasons why the legality of the contract could be challenged.He posited that the monthly rental agreed upon was “unreasonThe Sussex Street “House” Bondable, irrational, excessive, arbitrary, capricious, constitutes a fraud upon public funds, is unlawful, null and void and of no effect”.Hussain also contended that the premises was “absolutely unfit and unsuitable for the purpose of storing drugs and pharmaceuticals for the public health system of Guyana, and, therefore, the decision to rent the said demised premises for that purpose is unreasonable, irrational, whimsical, arbitrary, capricious, constitutes a fraud upon public funds, is unlawful, null and void and of no effect”.He added that the procurement of the premises was done “in absolute disregard and in violation of the Procurement Act, Chapter 73:05, and, therefore, the said rental agreement is ultra vires, unreasonable, irrational, whimsical, arbitrary, capricious, constitutes a fraud upon public funds, is unlawful, null and void and of no effect.”Against this backdrop, the taxpayer called on the Government to immediately terminate the contract.“If you fail to do so, I have firm instructions to institute legal proceedings challenging the legality of the said agreement without further notice,” Hussain warned in the correspondence.Hussain is being guided by Mohabir A Nandlall & Associates, operated by former Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall, who himself has since labelled the issue as one of the major acts of corruption by the Government thus far.Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton, notwithstanding the public flak, his public apology and the numerous questions surrounding the entire affair, maintained that there was no need for the contract to be retendered.Dr Norton conceded that he was not comfortable with the way the entire affair played out, hence his apology but glowingly stated: “I am comfortable with the bond… I think it has what it takes to store the medication in a proper way.”According to the lease agreement, in addition to the $12.5 million monthly rent for usage of the building, Government will pay the required Value Added Tax (VAT) to the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA). Inclusive of VAT, the rent would total $14.5 million instead of the $12.5 million that Government was touting.The contract stipulates also that Government would be responsible for paying utility bills to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) and Guyana Water Inc (GWI).The Government also agreed to stand the expenses to maintain the building, including cleaning, regular and emergency repairs, the servicing of the air conditioning units, etc.The contract stipulates that if the Government fails to execute the functions within a stipulated timeframe, the landlord will take up the responsibility and all costs incurred will be recoverable from the Government as if it were rent in arrears.Furthermore, while Government was adamant that the building was certified by the Pan American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) for the storage of pharmaceutical supplies, the contract did not confirm this assertion.And while Government continues to defend this decision, critics continue to question why the Administration would opt to exhaust such exorbitant amounts on a house under renovation for the storage of medical supplies when better options are available.Former President and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had pointed out that no competent Cabinet would approve a contract of $12.5 million VAT exclusive ($14.5 million) for a 6000-square-foot residential building versus $237 per sq foot (VAT inclusive) for a 70,000-square-foot modern internationally certified pharmaceutical bond.Additionally, others pointed out that Government owned a drug bond in Diamond, East Coast Demerara which has more than enough space to store the country’s pharmaceutical supplies.
This family of five received a bag of 50lb rice (22.68kg) from Save More KidsThe collaboration of local and international non-governmental agencies is the best way for their support to make a greater impact on the larger society, says Deborah Lindholm, founder and CEO of Foundation for Women in Liberia (FFWL).Delivering 55 bags of rice to orphans and widows yesterday in Dolo’s Town, lower Margibi County, Lindholm said the donation was in response to a promise she made last February to seek assistance on their behalf.“I told you that I was seeking organizations to work with us to provide you some humanitarian assistance and we were able to meet with an NGO known as Save More Kids run by Liberians in California and here in Liberia” she said.The Liberian founders of Save More Kids have adopted and added to their families 44 Liberians kids in Bong County.“During our discussion I presented your situation to them and they showed interest and the 55 bags of rice is the result of our discussion and I want you to say a big ‘thank you’ to them,” said Lindholm.She told the gathering of more than 100 family heads and a large number of children, that Save More Kids together with the FFWL is determined to ensure that no Liberian child goes hungry at night and that every child has the opportunity to go to school.“We are blessed to be in partnership with Save More Kids because we believe that working together with many more international non-governmental organizations that care about your condition and this country will help a greater number of people here,” she said.The beneficiaries were mostly orphans and widows who lost their parents and husbands during the Ebola Virus scourge of 2014. Lindholm said she felt extremely sorry for the kids who are left without their parents and are being cared for by neighbors.“This is the beginning of what we are able to get to assist you,” she told them. FFWL celebrated its 10th anniversary recently. According to Lindholm, it has provided micro-loans to more than 25,000 Liberian women throughout the country to start their own businesses and to about 150 low-cost independent schools in an effort to enroll more children in school.A beneficiary in her 40s, Madam Esther Brown, who lost her husband of many years, pastor Brown N. Karnga, and more than six children to Ebola, is now caring for 14 children. “I thank God for the help we are receiving,” she told the Daily Observer in an interview after she received 2 bags of rice.The distribution was done by members of the Dr. Abraham Saar Borbor Foundation in the presence of Mr. David Beyan, chief operations officer of FFWL and other FFWL staff.On behalf of the beneficiaries, a representative expressed appreciation to Save More Kids, FFWL and all those who made the donation a reality, and prayed for God’s blessings on their mission that is intended to ease their suffering.Dolo Town was one of the communities that was badly hit by the Ebola scourge and was quarantined by the Liberian government.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

DONEGAL’S World record lambshearer Ivan Scott scored his biggest competition win outside Ireland and the UK with a stunning upset victory in the New Zealand Corriedale Championships final at the Canterbury Show in Christchurch yesterday. It was a massive leap for the 33-year-old from Kilmacrennan who hadn’t won a competition in New Zealand since the 2008 Northern A and P Show in Rangiora.Having shorn in New Zealand every summer since he was 19, Scott has, however, twice broken the World eighth-hour strongwool lambshearing record. He is the current holder with 744, shorn when he claimed the record back from Hawke’s Bay shearer and former World and Golden Shears champion Cam Ferguson in January 2012 at Opepe Station, just east of Taupo.His win yesterday was based on the quality of his 10 sheep in the pen judging, where he was more than 4pts better than anyone else in the six-man final.His ultimate winning margin of 1.299pts was all that stood between 47-year-old defending champion Rakaia shearer Tony Coster and a unique treble on a day when Coster was presented with a small trophy marking his acclaim as a Master Shearer.

Shay Given has given his biggest hint yet that he may be about to retire from international football.The Lifford man, 36, has admitted he will sit down after the Euro 2012 Championships and decide if he wants to wear the green shirt again.Shay made his comments as he left the Gdansk Arena after Ireland’s frustrating 4-0 defeat by Spain. The Donegal sporting legend admitted “I’m hurting really badly at the moment so it would be foolish to make a decision.“But I think it might be time to step aside and let somebody else come into the side now,” he said.Shay said he had time to consider his future as the next game is not until August but that he will sit down with his family and make a decision one way or another.“At some point I’m going to have to make a decision. I’ll go home and have a long, hard think about it. “It’s something for me to think about when I’m on holiday and I’ll discuss it with my family first before I make a decision,” he said.
