Chairman of the National Carnival Commission (NCC) Winston “Gypsy” Peters told regional Carnival bodies if they cannot account for taxpayers’ money spent on previous Carnival events, they will not be provided with any funding for this year’s celebrations.
“We got back some accounts from some of the people. And we have not gotten back from quite a few of them...San Fernando included. As far as I am told those are going to have a challenge. We want accountability for the money they have spent. This is something they have to do every year. Some of them errant... they did not do it. Actions without consequence are what causing the delinquency.”
Something about the name calling between pots and kettles comes to mind..... or which part of the fish rots first... or the steady beat of irony .....
That standard should have been applied many years ago, but some assistance in keeping acceptable financial records may be required by some to consistently meet it. Better late than never!
