Govt’s achievements are measurable – Min. Scott

─ govt has done a lot since coming into office in 2015

─ APNU+AFC Govt catered for the nation’s youth

DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, March 20, 2019

“Today, I can stand here and proudly boast to you that in 3+ years our achievements are enough that if tomorrow morning there were elections, I have no doubt whatsoever that we would win it!”

This declaration was made by Minister within the Ministry of Social Protection, with responsibility for Labour, Keith Scott during an outreach in the ward of East and West Campbellville.

The minister and his team were part of a massive Ministerial Outreach spanning the fifteen constituencies of Georgetown.

As Government’s outreach began this afternoon, Minister Scott walked along Strone Avenue, then into Campbell Avenue greeting and interacting with residents along the route. He met both young, not so young and senior citizens on their way from school and work. The minister also greeted business persons in their establishments.

The walk culminated at the Campbellville Secondary School, where Minister Scott was joined by his ministerial colleague, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl Greenidge, who is currently performing the duties of president.

Minister Scott wasted little time in dispelling the misinformation that the government had rejected its supporters and the nation’s young people during its tenure in office.

“We are aware that we have been accused of not touching shoulders with you,” he said.

The minister reminded that the Coalition Government has been doing more than just executing policies.

“We have been told that we have neglected the youths, but an examination of our work would show that we had to make a choice… We spent long nights virtually every day in order to execute the policies that we crafted and promised you.”

He then stated that as a result of those late nights and policies, when persons walked through their communities (Campbellville), there are now paved roads that were not there before, streetlights, alleyways were no longer blocked, flooding in Georgetown altogether was now a thing of the past. These, he described, as measurable achievements.

Minister Scott, a former teacher at Campbellville Secondary, ended his presentation by encouraging every Guyanese to take every opportunity afforded them, to further their education or learn a new skill that can develop them in a meaningful way.
