DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, January 29, 2020
Residents of the Pomeroon-Supenaam region were on Wednesday evening reminded of the Coalition Government’s commitment to supporting empowerment and development.
During a rally at Damon Square, Anna Regina, His Excellency, President David Granger commented on the vast potential of the region and noted that “Pomeroon-Supenaam is a powerhouse.”
The Head of State said the Essequibo Coast has the potential to feed the entire nation once proper leadership is in place.
“The timber, the fish, the juices, everything you could want, you can get out of this region. It is the rice bowl of Guyana, the food basket of Guyana,” he stated.
The President also remarked that while the region is known for its agricultural production, it also produces successful and hardworking people.
“You heard about the performance of the student at Anna Regina Multilateral School, you are good as any other part of the country, your farmers and workers are as good as others in any other part of the country.”
Highlighting that over the last four years, the government has invested heavily in ensuring citizens are empowered in all aspects, President Granger stated that the government has committed to ensuring there are adequate health facilities across all regions, equal access to education by providing transportation and meals to children all across the country and has restored local democracy to the people of Guyana by hosting two Local Government Elections.
He vowed to the people of the region that he “will never appoint an interim management committee to replace an elected council or municipality” as was done under the previous administration.
“We are bringing solutions… we are strengthening communities. We want to ensure productivity continues to flourish in Region Two in every village and town,” the Head of State told the massive crowd.
