I just read this and I am amazed that the PNP is suggesting it would take 25% of the funds from JDIP to support the JEEP. Is this not simply the PNP’S attempt to corrupt the JDIP in their own way. In addition they are planning to dip into the already depleted TEF funds to complete the funding of the JEEP.
JEEP is seen in many quarters as a crash program and as such the JDIP funds would be used to support a program that could be seen as designed for party supporters and party hacks, instead of actual development work which was the original intent.
In my humble opinion, this is a flawed program from the very onset and the plans for the PNP to dip into the JDIP fund to support JEEP is not only a bad one , but really shows there was really no plans for JEEP and this is a last ditch attempt to give the impression that JEEP was properly thought out program.
Oh my goodness Dr Davis wants his hands on the JDIP FUNDS , THIS WILL BE A DISASTER !!
In a TVJ report tonight, Dr Davis said the Chinese cannot tell him what to do with the funds as its borrowed money and its the people of Jamaica who has to pay back the funds in any event. I like many others are very uncomfortable with these kinds of statement by the man who will have ultimate responsibility of the funds should the PNP win.
