“This govt is about meeting the needs of our people, and we are doing everything possible to arrive there” – Min. Ally

─ Min. Ally hosts ‘fruitful’ meeting at Crabwood Creek

─ residents urged to exercise their democratic right on March 2

DPI, Guyana, Friday, November 15, 2019

Scores of residents of Crabwood Creek, Corentyne, were urged to come out in their numbers on March 2, 2020 and exercise their democratic right – making sure that a committed government takes the helm of Guyana. The call came at a meeting with Minister of Social Protection, Hon. Amna Ally, on Friday evening.

“This government is about meeting the needs of our people, and we are doing everything possible to arrive there.”

Minister Ally told the mammoth crowd that for the past four years the APNU+AFC administration had done quite a lot for the Guyanese populace, identifying particularly the numerous upgrades the district received.

“We have commissioned the first well at Moleson Creek. This project gave way to hundreds of residents getting access to water. Several streets were resurfaced. Many farmers were able to go back to their farmlands because a number of tools were donated. They were assisted with an access road for cultivation from Stelling Road to Jackson Street. The rehabilitation of the CWC koker assisted farmers with proper drainage,” the Social Protection Minister chronicled.

The youth in attendance were encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities and training programmes offered by the government, which will allow them to enjoy the various careers and benefits that the upcoming oil and gas industry has to offer.

Upon the conclusion of the meeting, Minister Ally made a tangible donation to Dewan Dwarka, the leader of a newly established community group that aims to push for more development in the area.
