With Guyana Power and Light (GPL) and BK International pointing fingers at each other about the US$242M fuel wharf delays at the new Vreed-en-Hoop station, APNU General Secretary and shadow minister of Public Works, JosephAPNU parliamentarian Joseph HarmonHarmon, is clear that GPL needs to take responsibility for the delays.It must also be responsible for subsequent expenses incurred from trucking fuel to the station.The power plant was commissioned on February 9     by President Donald Ramotar, though the wharf and fuel lines were not yet in operation.This has resulted in GPL using private tankers to truck the fuel across the Demerara Harbour Bridge on a daily basis.Harmon stated that, like many public entities, GPL was characterized by management’s inability to make cost effective decisions, as well as improper consultation.He said that around the world, public entities are accountable to the people they serve, yet GPL operates as though it has autonomy over everyone.According to Harmon, GPL was the one that allowed BK to “gouge it in its eye”. The private company (BK) has its own responsibilities to make a profit for themselves. It is up to GPL to provide the appropriate oversight.However, this oversight among Government agencies is lacking, which is why there are so many stalled and inadequately done projects. One example he mentioned were the many poor quality roads, which must be redone.He went on to call for the shaking up of the GPL management, citing their history of poor cost cutting decisions.It was BK’S Group Chairman, Brian Tiwarie, who had called for Ministries, agencies and Government-owned corporations to improve their capacity to properly supervise and manage projects, rather than blaming the contractors whenever problems arise.
