– alcohol sale citedA traditional campfire graduation of the Guyana School of Agriculture (GSA) was cancelled last evening after it was found that alcohol was to be sold at the Mon Repos facility and that no approval had been given to host the activity.Student organisers claimed that they had already spent some $500, 000 to organise the event.According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Agriculture last evening, the Ministry learnt yesterday that the traditional campfire hosted by the students of the school among themselves has been planned and advertised to include a barbecue and ‘lime’.“We understand that these advertisements were being carried on television and played in minibuses. The Administration of the Guyana School of Agriculture wishes to make it clear that no approval was given for the use of the school campus for a public activity of the sort.”When the organizers were called in and told that no public activity of the kind would be allowed, they said arrangements were already in place, GSA said in the statement.As a compromise, the organizers, which comprised of students, were told there must be no selling or consuming of alcohol on the campus if the event is to continue.However, the organizers, the statement said, opted to call off the event.Organizers had complained to this newspaper earlier in the day that they had spent a considerable amount of money and had hired two music systems with bars selling Banks products, among other drinks.The GSA administration was not against the idea of the students holding the annual event among themselves and this was conveyed to the organizers, the statement explained.“The fact that the majority of the students at this live-in institution are under eighteen years of age, and that the school is currently grappling with some serious problems concerning student behaviour on campus are of serious concern to the administration, ” GSA stressed.Also, Minister of Agriculture, Robert Persaud, under whose responsibility the school falls, has been very clear on his position with regards to these kinds of activities on campus, in light of the murder of a University of Guyana student on the campus recently.“To those members of the public who may have been inconvenienced, the administration, on behalf of its student society, expresses its regret, Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale, and hopes that its position would be understood.”A member of the event’s committee told Kaieteur News that the campfire has been a tradition for graduating students of GSA for almost 40 years.

Old people seh that people mustn’t wish fuh others wha dem don’t wish fuh demself. Rohee jump and call fuh de Surujbally boy to resign. He join wid Donald and de other party boys and picket. Dem boys hear nuff noise when de crowd refuse to accept de election results.Dem boys decide to call de Surujbally boy to find out wha he think bout de call fuh he resignation. He watch dem and shake he head like if he want to tell dem that dem asking a stupid question. Then he seh something that nuff people never think about. He seh that nobody ever move a vote of no confidence against he.As dem old people seh, mouth open story jump out. Dem boys remember that in Parliament, China NFL Jerseys, de opposition did move a vote of no confidence against Rohee. And de man did not resign. Surujbally then ask dem why dem think he should resign. Rohee shoulda lead by example. Well as things go, he ain’t in a position to act against de vote of no confidence and he ain’t got no authority to call pun anyone fuh resign.Is just like when de bishop Ten Edghill talking bout witch hunt. He was de one when he go to de post office to fire a whole heap of people without giving dem a chance. He walk in because he think he was a big one and he knock off left, right and centre.Now he talking bout how de government knocking off people. Dem boys seh that he either got a memory like a fish or he just like fuh talk. Even Donald ain’t seh a word bout witch hunt because he remember when Papa Cheddi did send Rambo fuh knock off dem senior managers.Rambo knock off till dem didn’t have nobody to knock off. He knock off de chairman—a man name Bovell—and everybody who he think was a member of de Pee Hen See.Dem boys live to see that Cheddi knock off Rambo. De same Rambo going to Whim today to see Jagdeo in court. He tell dem boys that if he get a chance he would knock off de magistrate if she don’t knock down Jagdeo.Talk half and remind Rohee bout de call fuh he resignation.
