DPI, Guyana, Thursday, February 7, 2019

Residents of Mahdia have been assured that the Coalition Government remains strong and in office doing the people’s business.

On her trip to Mahdia, Region Eight on Wednesday, Minister within the Ministry of Natural Resources, Simona Broomes, took time to speak to residents of the mining community via the airwaves of Radio Mahdia, 95.1FM

Clearing up misconceptions about the government and the December 21 vote in the National Assembly, Minister Broomes related that Parliament has not been dissolved.

“His Excellency said it best, the business of the government continues, he is the president, he has not dissolved the Parliament… the work of government, I want to assure the general public, it continues. That is why we are here, we do have a budget we have a country and we have Guyanese people to serve,” said Minister Broomes.

The minister reassured the community that the country is in good hands, urging citizens to also remain confident in their government.

“We are focused as a government and I am confident and asking everyone to be confident with your confident government… We will continue until that time comes, your country is in good hands.”

Minister Broomes also took time to dispel the notion that because of Guyana’s oil find, mineral mining will be pushed aside. She told residents of Mahdia that government will be putting more efforts and resources into further developing these areas.

In October 2017, residents of Mahdia witnessed history as Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo commissioned Radio Mahdia 95.1FM.

More developments are on the cards for 2019 following the approval and passing of the 2019 Budget.
