Buxtonians ask what tangible contributions has David Hinds made to aid in their development.
Nigel Green: Buxton is a beautiful part of Guyana. All Buxtonians, whether they are current residents, or have left Buxton and are currently residing elsewhere, should, and are not prohibited, in any way, from contributing to their community.
Like any other village in Guyana, I am sure that Buxton would welcome any form of assistance which aids in the community’s development and economic prosperity.
The President’s recent engagement with Buxton however, was under great condemnation. A particular overseas-based Guyanese, who comes from the Buxton village, Dr David Hinds, could not come to terms with the fact that ties were being strengthened between the current administration and the Buxton community.
Like so many others, Hinds is a political opportunist. He realises that too much Jagdeo affiliations with Buxton will weaken any political influence that the opposition parties may have in that community.
This is a simple letter. I ask only one question. With his disgust and obvious disapproval of any PPP/C/ Buxton alliance, what tangible contribution has David Hinds made to the village of Buxton? There is no evidence to suggest that the people of Buxton could ever benefit from Hinds’ constant ‘washing his mount’ on them, and judging from his letters, that’s all he ever does. His constant berating of PPP/ Buxton relations is nowhere near being in the interests of Buxtonians.
Instead, it showcases unmistakably, his political ambition, in light of the upcoming elections.
Will David Hinds please stand up and tell the people of Buxton what tangible contributions he has made to their village, and how those contributions have aided development, in any way, in the lives of the people of Buxton, and for that matter, the people of Guyana?
