Opposition Senator Wade Mark said the Prime Minister has a lot of questions to answer.
Speaking at the UNC’s weekly media conference on Sunday, Mark made the statement in light of the PM’s comment on Saturday, when he told the media “Just give me a break!” after being questioned about Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal’s call for the imposition of a moratorium on ministers buying luxury cars.
Mark said Rowley has too many questions to answer to be given a break.
He said “You will be held to account for the financial losses of the National Gas Company. You will be held to account for the investment of close to US$300 million in Train One with no returns and with no possibility in sight of Train One coming back on stream. Yes Mr Prime Minister you will not be given any break by the people as you seek to impose more pain, more suffering, more hardship, more brutality, as you seek to impose new prices for gasoline whether it is premium, super, or diesel.”
Mark added “And there will be no break for you Mr Prime Minister as it relates to this decision in April 2019, to grant a bunkering and marketing license to a company called RH Gas Energy Limited. You will have to account to this country as to the rationale and the reasons behind giving a fly by night company formed in June 2018, some six months before the closure, the shutdown of Petrotrin, how this company was granted within less than one year a bunkering and marketing license.”
