Controversy Brews as WIOC’s Takeover Plans Raise Questions of Fairness and Entrepreneurship

Dear Editor,

There is an old saying,”When your neighbour house on fire, wet down yours”.

This is so relevant when one sees what the British born Dominican and WIOC General Manager, Gregory Georges is doing to an indigenous Antiguan at the Friars Hill Gas Station.

In a Press Release Georges said that WIOC intends to take over all the gas stations that are WIOC owned or leased.

At the moment all of these are operated by Antiguans.

So how does this gel with the World Boss’s assertion that he wants his people to be entrepreneurs?

Is the Boss speaking with forked tongue?

Government is the majority shareholder of WIOC with 3 ABLP Directors in Hilroy Humphreys, Hon. Maria Browne and Abena St. Luce.

If the government’s position as stated by the World Boss is that Antiguans must be entrepreneurs, how is a Minister of his Cabinet ignoring this directive?

This will give WIOC an absolute monopoly of wholesale supply and retail sales.

This atrocity and advantage has not gained much traction because Larry Gonsalves has light skin.

But Philbert Mason, the Spencers and the other operators of WIOC Service stations are darker.

They are next on the Gregory Georges Agenda.

They better wet their house and be prepared.

The Venezuelan Deputy Foreign Minister is the Chairman of WIOC. I hope the local Venezuelan Ambassador is keeping him informed of the injustice happening here with their asset.

Venezuela is looking for friends around the world. They do not need more problems.
