NEW GPC fulfilled all contractual obligations to Govt
– roasts Guyana Chronicle’s biased reportage
The New Guyana Pharmaceutical Corporation (NEW GPC) has exposed the Guyana Chronicle over a biased article it published on Monday which erroneously suggested that the pharmaceutical giant failed to honour its contractual obligations to the Ministry of Health for the supply of drugs between 2011 and 2015.
The Government-controlled Chronicle in a Page 10 article referred to the Auditor General Report for 2015 which claims that NEW GPC is still to supply drugs and medical supplies valued $11.8 million for 2011 and $44.9 million for 2013.
“The company wishes to categorically state that it has completely fulfilled its obligations under contracts with the Ministry of Health for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015,” the NEW GPC said in a statement.
The NEW GPC added that it was willing to share this information in the form of delivery notes with the Auditor General if he so pleases.
“NEW GPC also wishes to reiterate that in the future if the authorities are unable to locate documentation the company will be willing to assist since as the Chronicle article proves, there is obvious bias in the reporting as only NEW GPC was singled out as a supplier for mention by name,” the company stated on Monday.
