Ajamu Nyomba replied to Glenroy R Joseph's discussion Second thoughts about a Pan Players union..
"Glenroy, we're on the same page, almost but not quite. I am suggesting that Pan Trinbago should remain as is, a public corporation (with the necessary constitutional changes, e.g., more gov't oversight regarding the allocation of the…"

Ajamu Nyomba replied to Glenroy R Joseph's discussion Pan People must "fix" Pan Trinbago, not wait for the government of the courts to do it for them.
""Pan people have only one option , and that is to use the electoral process to replace the entire executive board with reliable , honest individuals , and make the necessary changes to the constitution and the mandate from within." I see…"

Ajamu Nyomba replied to Glenroy R Joseph's discussion How pan people gave away their power , and why they're paying for it .
"Why can't pan players form a union, independent of Pan Trinbago? Pan Trinbago is a corporation. The Executive, both Central and regional are the owners (they act as they are owners, but they are really MANAGERS). Pan Players are the…"

"Thanks a bunch for posting the Constitution of Pan Trinbago. Okay, for those who haven't already read it, please read carefully. Then members of this forum will have a basis to offer workable solutions to the on-going debacle."

Ajamu Nyomba replied to Aquil's discussion How can anyone claim that they love this Instrument so much that they would feel happy to mash it up for their own self benefit?
"Mr. Hinkson your first point suggest that you don't know enough of the history of pan and panmen in TT or, you just talking "ole talk." You should start by reading George Goddard's "Forty Years in the Steelbands.""

Ajamu Nyomba replied to Aquil's discussion How can anyone claim that they love this Instrument so much that they would feel happy to mash it up for their own self benefit?
"Too much "ole talk" on this forum. We (expats) should be encouraging those in opposition to the Pan Trinbago oligarchy. Let our criticism be constructive, please."

Ajamu Nyomba replied to Pan Times's discussion Do Pan Trinbago leaders love pan?
"Pan players need to take a stand. The executives of Pan Trinbago are elected by and serve at the pleasure of the membership. I say boycott Panorama and other Pan Trinbago productions until all monies owed to pan players have been paid and all…"
