‘Honest Govt must manage affairs of the country’- PM Nagamootoo

DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Prime Minister Honourable Moses Nagamootoo has declared that under the Coalition administration Guyana will never be divided.

Addressing a large gathering in his hometown of Whim last evening the elder statesman called on them to return the Coalition government to office to continue the development that began under their tenure.

Citing a wide range of regional developments such as the new East Bank Berbice road, the installation of streets lights across the region, the much-need reduction in tolls for commuters using the Berbice Bridge, Prime Minister Nagamootoo declared, “…we need to continue what we have started. No government in the Caribbean has done so much in such a short time.”

The Prime Minister further expounded “we have brought the economy afloat with a GDP of 5 percent growth; improved wages for public servants; completed an airport that was going nowhere; completed the East Bank  and West Bank Highways; completed the East Bank Berbice brand new road; built roads in the interior; built new passport offices; built new NIS offices; built new revenue authority offices; built new magistrate courts and we have repaired every single school in this country.”

The Whim residents were reminded that despite the attempts by the elected PPP/C councillors to stymie the work of the NDC, the government still repaired their roads, installed street lights and ensured their garbage was collected.

“…They were given billions and billions of dollars to do works in the Region and they are not doing the work because they want to make the government look bad,” The Prime Minister emphasised

He noted that the administration was one that “had the people in mind” which was demonstrated in the numerous outreaches where government officials took their services directly to the people in their respective communities

He concluded with a reminder to the resident to come out to the polls on March 2 to ensure “…a decent and honest government will manage the affairs of the country’s wealth so that all Guyanese can benefit.”
