Say no to Jagdeo's radio licenses granted to relatives and friends of the PPP
- All International Human Rights Organizations
All radio station licenses were unfairly issued by then President Jagdeo to his relatives and friends of the PPP regime:
Radio Guyana Inc; which is associated with Dr. Ranjisingjhi Ramroop a close friend of Jagdeo, has been issued with radio frequency licenses by the National Frequency Management Unit (NFMU) for 89.3 ; 89.5; 89.7; 106.9 and 107.3. Telcor and Cultural Broadcasting has been granted frequency licenses for 89.7 ; 90.1 ; 91.56 ; 104.9 and 103.3. New Guyana Company Limited has gotten 91.1; 90.7; 90.5; 105.9 and 105.3. The contact person for Telcor is Omar Lochan, a Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment. Lochan is also the husband of Jaya Manickchand, sister of Education Minister, Priya Manickchand.
That entity’s directors are Kamini Persaud-a niece of Jagdeo and wife of Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment Robert Persaud- and Ruth Baljit his sister.
One frequency each has been granted to NTN Radio, Rudolph Grant, Wireless Connections, Hits and Jams Entertainment, Alfro Alphonso and Sons Enterprise, Haslyn Graham and Little Rock Television.
We the citizens of Guyana call on the government to take immediate action in correcting the unfair distribution of radio station licenses to family members/relatives and friends of the regime.
We also call on the PPP regime to ensure that other applicants are given the same respect with regards to acquiring said license, with immediate effect.
