The PNC failed the black community for 28 years and more-Harry Gill
Harry Gill: May I remind all Guyanese of African descent that prior to 1992, the PNC had been in power for 28 years and at one time, thanks to PNCR Presidential Candidate David Granger who, in his capacity as the Political Liaison Officer to President Forbes Burnham, the GDF secured a two-thirds majority in Parliament for the then ruling PNC. Why then did Corbin and other PNC stalwarts not persuade Burnham to appoint a National Commission to finally settle the issue of African Ancestral Lands, or did they believe that “the Party” would have been in power forever? The PNC’s failure to adequately serve the Black communities in Guyana is the main reason they are losing base-support; the truth hurts… doesn’t it Mr. Robinson?
