President Ali calls on all leaders to unify the country
─as Gov’t works to foster togetherness
His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali today called on leaders to foster unity among the people, saying discord is the greatest challenge to our development.
The President made this appeal at a ceremony to unveil a collection of commemorative centenary stamps on the 100th birth anniversary of former President Janet Jagan, OE. The ceremony was held at State House today.
The Head of State said unity rests entirely on the shoulders of leaders.
“We cannot lead without dignity. We cannot lead in a way that is disrespectful to the laws of our country. Today I ask all of Guyana, especially within our political landscape, to assume individually and collectively the role of achieving the unification of our people,” President Ali said.

“It is the most pressing issue for us as a people. We talk a lot these days about the economic bonanza that will come, about the great wealth that will come, about lifting our people from poverty, but today I say to you the greatest of task and challenge for all of us is the unification of our people,” President Ali said.
The President reiterated that his Administration will continue to work towards unifying the country.
“It will be achieved. It must be achieved. We have to break down the invisible walls of disunity and bring our people together. We owe this to the legacy of those who work tirelessly and selflessly. We owe this to our future generations. We have to fix it now and fix it in this generation and do not leave this burden upon those who will come after us,” Dr. Ali emphasised.
Since his inauguration, President Ali has said the people are at the core of his administration’s plans and policies and that everyone will benefit under his leadership.
