Reflecting on his second year in office, President Irfaan Ali on Tuesday recognised that his government has more work to do in providing a quality life for all citizens and has committed to doing so.
Today commemorates two years since the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) administration assumed back office following attempts to rig the March 2 General and Regional Elections to keep the A Partnership for National Unity + Alliance For Change (APNU + AFC) in power.
In a message to the nation, the Head of State boasted of his party’s achievements, such as the massive housing and water programmes.
Moreover, he noted that his government has restored the ‘Because We Care’ cash grant and has even increased it to $30,000 this year while creating thousands of jobs across the country.
But while this may be commendable and shows his leadership in ensuring that his party’s manifesto promises are fulfilled, the Head of State did not fail to recognise that “there is much more to be done and much more will be done.”
A dedicated Ali has pledged to use every ounce of his energy to work for the people of Guyana and assured citizens that his cabinet would do the same. He committed to economic prosperity for all Guyanese, including public servants.
“I hope and pray that I am not disappointing you, nor the government I lead is disappointing you. In using that confidence to serve all of Guyana, in building one Guyana in which prosperity can come to every home,” the President said.
To this end, the Head of State highlighted that there are many opportunities in the agriculture and tourism sectors.
The President thanked all Guyanese who fought to ensure democracy prevails following the 2020 elections and urged all citizens to live in unity.
