Government salutes President Granger on fifth anniversary of swearing in

The Government of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana salutes His Excellency Brig. David Granger on the fifth anniversary of being sworn in as President, tomorrow, May 16th, 2020.

The Government heralds President Granger for his astute and steadfast leadership. It is evident that the people of Guyana recognize that President Granger’s insistence on inclusionary and evidence-based decision-making for all Guyanese are precisely what is needed in Guyana at this historic juncture.

The Government recognizes that President Granger contended with a combination of various national, political and personal challenges during his first term in office. He has prevailed in every instance through decisive and resolute leadership. While it is regrettable that this occasion comes at a time when the nation and the world are combating a global pandemic, it is beyond doubt that President Granger is precisely the leader we require in these times of difficulty to steer the ship of state to safe and calmer waters.

Under President Granger’s leadership Guyana has been transformed and is safer, stronger and boasts a stable and robust economy. Guyana has experienced remarkable development and progress since President Granger was sworn in as Head of State. There is markedly better delivery of education, health care and social services. Wages, salaries and pensions have been vastly improved, taxes are lower, infrastructure is better and the constitutionally enshrined local government elections, freedom of the press and freedom of expression and association have been restored and strengthened after being either absent or eroded.

The people of Guyana, in 2015, elected President Granger for the honesty, decency and integrity which he embodies. And it is evident that after a successful first term as President the electorate of Guyana reposed confidence in his leadership and re-elected him for a second term.

The government looks forward, with optimism and anticipation, to President Granger’s second term in office and wish him greater success in the next five years as he leads the delivery of the good life for all Guyanese.
