“Undeniable changes within first half of the Decade of Development” – Min Jordan
“Guyanese are in good hands with the Coalition Government”
DPI, Guyana, Thursday, January 9, 2020
Before a captivated crowd at the corners of Norton and Victor Street’s on the evening of January 8, Minister of Finance Winston Jordan stated that citizens will witness changes in every sector, within the first half of the “Decade of Development.”
“… Guyana is a paradise. We’ve got gold, diamonds, bauxite. We got manganese. We got silica sand and now we got oil. If we can put all of it together and mix it with skilled, Guyanese, what will be the outcome? A rich prosperous nation with people living happily”
The finance minister, a public service veteran since the 1980s, reminded of many of the previous administration’s fiascos, including the failed Skeldon Estate and Amalia Falls Projects and the Foreign Affairs Ministry’s “desecration.”
Minister Jordan warned voters, “Don’t get stupidy and basidy… Let’s stay with the tried and tested.”
He said that the Coalition’s move to increase the minimum wage by 77 percent was “incomparable” and noted that the PPP/C’s presidential candidate’s claims about reinstituting subsidies were for nought since more persons were benefiting now, with no strings attached.
“Let’s be sensible comrades…. You can test their twenty-three years with the, so far, four and three-quarters of ours and you could put them side by side. What we have been able to do, is unheard of in the annals of the history of this country, for a government that just got into power!”
The minister’s successful meeting follows the APNU+AFC two massive rallies which attracted thousands at Durban Park and Hope Ground, West Berbice, over the last week.
