─ at Cabinet outreach
Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Governance, Gail Teixeira, MP, on Saturday announced that residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) will receive training in various areas to serve their communities.
During a meeting at Jib and Better Success, she encouraged residents to make full use of the opportunities that will be made available.
Residents will be trained to become police officers, soldiers, contractors, teachers, and nurses, among others. “We will train them here and they will be able to start working, retrained and start working in Essequibo… [we are] trying to develop capacity in every region from the people within the region,” the minister said.
Minister Teixeira said there are many developments taking place across the country, providing persons with job opportunities to build themselves and take care of their families.
“So, it’s important that we look at the job opportunities, as I said, every time a house is being built it provides jobs for at least five people…you need a plumber, you need a mason, you need a painter, electrician, and you got the contractor…
“So, for every house is finding and getting a job and for every time we do bridges and repair bridges,” Minister Teixeira told the residents.
Meanwhile, the Minister also urged persons to become vaccinated and protect themselves and their children. She said the government has secured vaccines in order to “take care” of the citizens of Guyana so that the country could move forward.
