The Chairman of the Guyana National Broadcasting Authority (GNBA), Leonard Craig has signaled that he would be stepping down as Chairman of that television and radio regulatory authority, according to well-placed sources.

Sources said he is off to China to pursue a doctorate during the next three years. He made the announcement at a meeting of the Alliance For Change (AFC), the party to which he belongs.

Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo said he has not been officially informed by Craig of his decision to step down.

Craig was also Personal Assistant to Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan.

Craig’s impending decision to step down comes amid a probe by Retired Major General, Joseph Singh into allegations of corruption he had made against two GNBA members.

He has had a long-running feud with GNBA member, Tony Vieria.
