State Minister Joseph Harmon has made it clear that he will not be moving any furniture for any Member of the Opposition People’s Progressive Party.

This is after, Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira on Monday told reporters that the Government was wilfully withholding resources from the office of the Opposition Leader. This, according to Teixeira, was stymieing the work of the Opposition.

But Harmon retorted on Tuesday making it clear that all of the resources are available for the Opposition. He stated that the Opposition knows the channels through which they can go to acquire the resources.

“The furniture is in the building they have to come and move it. I am not moving any furniture for Rohee or for Jagdeo or anybody. It is there they can get it when they want,” said Harmon.

According to the State Minister, The Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs is aware of the situation since he serves as the intermediary between the Government and Opposition on this particular issue.

“If they want to get it….why is he making noise about furniture…Ms Teixeira has not contacted me neither has she contacted the President on this matter. If there is an issue about computers let them contact us…what is the big thing about a couple of computers,” he questioned.

Teixeira claimed during a recent inspection pieces of equipment including 13 laptop computers could not be accounted for.
