Georgetown, Guyana – In a brief but definitive note, Minister Of Public Telecommunications, Cathy Hughes rejected PPPC’s Gail Teixeira vile insinuation of corruption, in a matter concerning a small contract awarded to Videomega Productions, a company now managed by Mr Russel Lancaster.
Minister Hughes noted that, “In May 2015 upon my assumption of the role of Minister of Tourism I relinquished any involvement in the day to day running of Videomega Productions.
Russel Lancaster was appointed Manager and is responsible for the operations of the company. I have since been informed that the contract was for the production of three sixty second television Public Service Announcements. The value of the contract is $ 832,200.
The award of this contract was never brought to my attention neither would I have been aware of it in the normal conduct of the Company’s business.”
The opposition PPP, under the direction of former President Bharrat Jagdeo, recently launched a propaganda campaign, both in and out of Guyana, in a desperate bid to drag coalition leaders into their own ugly mire of extrajudicial murders, corruption and deceit. Their nefarious plan will not stand however.
