APNU+AFC on winning streak – President David Granger tells Mahdia
DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, February 12, 2020
His Excellency President David Granger has predicted the Coalition Government’s victory after the March 2, 2020, General and Regional Elections, and has called on all to come under the “green and gold banner” of the APNU+AFC.
The President headlined another successful campaign rally in Mahdia Region Eight (Potaro-Sipuruni) Wednesday evening, where support for the coalition was yet again demonstrated by another sizeable turnout.
President Granger said the incumbent’s successive victory will be so great, that it would eventually weaken the opposition’s dominance on the political stage.
He said people across Guyana are leaving their traditional political strongholds and are joining what he said has now become a “movement.”
“Everywhere in this country, people are coming over to the APNU+AFC. It is not a party here; it is a movement. People are feeling this energy that APNU+AFC is generating to develop this country,” the president said.
He said while the opposition is raising banners on the picket line, the government remains steadfast to its duty, erecting structures across sectors.
“Everywhere the APNU+AFC is building clinics, building wells, developing facilities for the people. We are building schools. We are making life comfortable for the people of this country,”.
The mining community of Mahdia was the last of four villages that were transformed into townships under the coalition. President Granger said the new town will be built up and made prosperous.
The President said Mahdia has reached a point where it must make the critical decisions that will ensure the prosperity of its children and the region. According to him, it is time to move “our control of region 8” so that victory will be wrought at the polls.
“Let us continue to build up our strength in this great region. Let us come over to the winning side, let us continue to fight for our women and young people and children.”
Although the region has the smallest population, President Granger said Potaro-Siparuta has tremendous potential. The Coalition Government, he said will work to realise that potential.
He said the government will always protect the mining industry. Noting that improvement will come, with strict environmental standards.
Speaking on the Decade of Development, President Granger said the kind of development seen over the last four years, will continue until 2029. He committed to the expansion and improvement of hydro, solar and wind power, particularly in the hinterland communities.
Looking ahead, the Head of State assured, that all will be well.
“We will give you a bright future under the coalition.”.
